#Quote
1 All I can say is... if you're trying to compete with Hollywood, you're already losing. I think tokusatsu is the only thing that can stand on the same playing field as Hollywood. Maximizing tokusatsu is the wise way to go, not chasing Hollywood. [On the future of tokusatsu (Japanese special effects)]
2 He is too much of a 'god' in Japanese movie history, and the history can not be refreshed unless we become anti-Ozu. I have nothing personal against him, but I have to declare I am anti-Ozu in order to move forward. [When asked about his dislike of Yasujirô Ozu]
3 I try not to listen to any of the feedback for each of my films - I close my ears to it. I don't want to be swayed by that. I'm always thinking, "I just make the films I want to make. Shut up!"
4 Japanese movies - almost all I don't like. I don't like. Because almost all Japanese movies are love drama, crying drama, and...sickness movie.

#Trademark
1 He often wears a black fedora hat.
2 The main characters of his films are often teenagers.
