Also trained as a musician.

“Music certainly made me aware of time, movement, texture and pace – a combination of elements that also come together in film.” (on his training as a musician).
I'm most interested in the space between the ears, what goes on in a human being's mind. But I do love thrillers and suspense movies. The idea of not exactly confusing an audience, but leading them through a complex plot is very attractive to me.
“The job of the director of these speculative movies is to make the audience see what the characters see through their eyes.” (on the challenge of directing horror and science fiction pictures).
