BIOGRAPHY:




TRIVIA:
  • He drew criticism when he stated that he considered _The Passion of the Christ (2004)_ (qv) to be 'the most violent film I've ever seen'. Many misinterpreted that to mean that he felt that the violence in the film was negative and exploitive (even though he gave the film a glowing review). He stated in his Q and A column that "The effect of movie violence depends on subjective factors, including the purpose the filmmakers had in using it."
  • Shares the birthplace of Urbana, Illinois with the character Hal 9000, as specified in _2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)_ (qv) one of his all time favorite movies. He held a birthday party for Hal 9000 at the University of Illinois in Urbana in 1997 (Hal's birth date in the novel, not the film) celebrated with a screening of 2001 and its co-writer 'Arthur C. Clarke' (qv) in attendance via satellite.
