Personal Quote:

Audiences are less intrigued, honestly, by battle. They're more intrigued by human relations. If you're making a film about the trappings of the period, and you're forgetting that human relationships are the most engaging part of the storytelling process, then you're in trouble. See more »

Trivia:

Like his brother Tony Scott, he is an avid smoker of Montecristo Cuban cigars. See more »

Trademark:

Begins most films with an info card sequence or montage (Alien - Le 8ème passager (1979), Blade Runner (1982), Gladiator (2000), La chute du faucon noir (2001)). See more »
