Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I'm really going in a weird I-don't-know-where direction. I prefer it to anything like what standardised filmmaking has become. See more »

Trivia:

He dedicated both his 1993 film Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1993) and his 1997 novel "Pink" to the late actor River Phoenix. See more »

Trademark:

His end credits are often run over film footage (i.e. home movies in 'Drugstore Cowboy', ice skating in 'To Die For', an incoming storm in 'Elephant') instead of the usual solid black. A notable exception is 'My Own Private Idaho'. See more »
