Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

What I think happens today is that a lot of filmmakers look at other films that are retro pieces, like L.A. Confidential, and say, oh, that's period. We didn't want to do the stereotypical stuff. See more »

Trivia:

Musician Greg Dulli, who appears with his band, The Afghan Whigs, in Demme's film, Beautiful Girls (1996), was so distraught when he heard of his death that he scrapped a nearly completed album for his band, The Twilight Singers, and wrote an entirely new set of songs. See more »
