Personal Quote:

I was academically a disaster, honestly. (...) It wasn't because I was lazy; I'm inherently a multi-tasker, but I could not grasp or retain the information that was coming at me. (...) The saying then was that those who can, do; those who can't, go to art school. [2015] See more »

Trivia:

Coming from an army and fine arts background, he is an inveterate stickler for detail who tackles each movie project with the vehemence of a general with a battle plan. His persistent scrutiny of minutiae on the Alien - Le 8ème passager (1979) shoot prompted Sigourney Weaver to complain that he cared more about his props and sets than he did about his cast.
