Quotes

I did all my directing when I wrote the screenplay. It was probably harder for a regular director. He probably had to read the script the night before shooting started.


Trademark

Wry explorations of the sexual politics of the time, with a typically strong, crafty female lead who often runs intellectual circles around a gullible, idealistic male lead


Star Sign
