    'Your Friends and Neighbors' originally received an NC-17 rating from the MPAA even though there was no violence or nudity.
    His play 'Bash: A Remembrance of Hatred and Longing' showed Mormon characters doing bad things. The play confused non-Mormons and irritated some Mormons.

    He received a scholarship to the Royal Academy of London.
    His first movie was financed by the insurance money by two friends who were involved car accidents.

    He is able to work on both mainstream and independent films.
    He has been described by interviewers as intelligent, polite, and easygoing.
    Regarding his films he said: 'I'm interested in what you think. I raise the questions… Do you want me to rant for 90 minutes about how I feel?'
    He often casts college friend Aaron Eckhart.
