L.A. Confidential, I guess.

But to be perfectly honest, I enjoyed The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, The River Wild, and In Her Shoes a lot more. ;D ('course, I haven't seen the first two in years.)

They are still amazing ;)

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle for me, though I at least like everything I've seen.

Worked on one of his films.


If you had asked me before this experience I wouldn't be able to define his style, but there is a very particular way he makes films.  I liked being exposed to it because it's real different from some of the flashier directors I've worked with.  Plus there was this day...

LA Confidential for me, as an Ellroy fanboy. 8 Mile is surprisingly good though.

LA Confidential. Wonderful movie.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.
