Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Said that Peter Watkins's The War Game (1965), about London being nuclear-bombed had an impact on him: "I thought about it for a week after seeing it." And The Road (2009), based on Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic novel: "That's really scary. I think there's a degree of uneasy accuracy. (...) We don't want to even consider that." [2016].

Strong female characters, including Sigourney Weaver in Alien (1979), Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis in Thelma & Louise (1991), Alison Lohman in Matchstick Men (2003), all the female characters in A Good Year (2006), Cate Blanchett and Eileen Atkins in Robin Hood (2010), Noomi Rapace in Prometheus (2012), Jessica Chastain in The Martian (2015) and even the female athlete in the Superbowl ...
