"I consider myself just another member of the crew, the highest paid member of the crew."

An American director associated with the New Hollywood movement, best known for his various thriller films. His greatest works are generally seen as The French Connection and The Exorcist, which established him as an up-and-coming talent in cinema, but his ambitious film Sorcerer, doomed by its release alongside Star Wars, essentially ruined his career and sent him into obscurity (though it is now being re-evaluated as a masterpiece by many critics). He continues making films, some hugely beloved and others hated, but has never regained his former fame or success.
