    He tries to incorporate numerous trademarks in all of his films. His trademarks are colored lighting, electronic music, scenic water views and the use of a .45 caliber 1911 pistol by one of the characters.

    He owes his successful film career to creating the 'Miami Vice' TV series.
    He directed a TV commercial for Mercedes Benz (one of those fake movie trailer ads. It created an uproar when people found out it was a hoax).
    He attended London International Film School.
    He operates the camera himself in most of his films and shot 60% of the film 'Heat.'
    He is a visual director filming amazing scenic shots of coastal America.
    He is a very consistent filmmaker.
    Despite fierce opposition from Spike Lee (claiming that 'only a black director could do Ali's story justice'), Michael was Will Smith's personal choice to direct 'Ali.'
    He was nominated for three Oscars.
    He won a Directors Guild of America award (1980).
    He won two Emmys (1979, 1990).
