The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web
Such films as Hardcore (1979), American Gigolo (1980) and the horror-remake Cat People (1982) gained huge cult followings among the paying public, but received mixed reviews from the critics. In 1985, he attracted good attention with Mishima, a multi-layered look at the popular Japanese author and his stories. His subsequent film work has been neither succesful nor as notorious as his earlier work. His main problem is that the graphic sex and ultra-violence tend to overshadow the story (if any) in his films. His earlier work was much more restrained when it came to those particular themes. Still, he has a chance at being a potentiallly great director in league with Scorsese, Coppola, Kubrick and Peckinpah.
