Personal Quote:

I bristle a little when the argument for film gets put into the nostalgia ghetto. Film is still the highest quality and best-looking image capture medium available. I don't think it always will be.

Wrote the screenplay for Brick (2005). in 1997. It took him six years to get financing for Brick (2005). See more »
