#Fact

2Directed one Oscar nominated performance: Susan Sarandon was nominated as 'Best Actress' for Lorenzo's Oil (1992).
3In 2007 he was set to direct a film adaptation of DC comic's Justice League. Miller started the preproduction and casting but the project was put on indefinite hold due to the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike and finally canceled.
4Was set to direct Contact (1997) but was replaced by Warner Bros studio due to creative differences on the project and the delay of the whole production start date. Miller was replaced by Robert Zemeckis.
5Kings Cross, New South Wales, Australia [January 2009]
6He was awarded the A.O. (Officer of the Order of Australia) in the 1996 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to the Australian Film Industry as a director, producer, and writer, as founding board director of the museum of contemporary art and as a Member of the International Jury of the Cannes Film Festival in France.

Other members included actors Mel Gibson and Judy Davis and directors Peter Weir, and Gillian Armstrong.
10Raised money to make Mad Max (1979) by working as an Emergency Room Doctor.
11Warner Bros. gave him the rights to Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) to get him to step aside as the director of Contact (1997).

#Quote
1The way I think of filmmaking - it's such a seductive thing. It encompasses every human discipline you can imagine - composition, art, technology, music, movement and choreography. It encompasses all life. We are the servants of the zeitgeist and we live in a chaotic world. There is so much information coming at you, we are trying to find resonances out there to create some kind of meaning. Stories are a way of distilling something out of all that bombardment. They are a way of finding signal in the noise. That's very seductive. Very.
2[on Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)] In the 30-odd years since not only has the world changed, cinema has changed. The way we experience films has changed. And I've changed too. [2015]
3[on the character Max Rockatansky] He's all of us, amplified. Each of us in our own way is looking for meaning in a chaotic world. He's got that one instinct-to survive. After the first Mad Max (1979), we went to Japan and they said, "We know this character, he's a ronin, like a samurai." In Scandinavia they called him a lone, wandering Viking. To others he's a classic American Western figure. [2015]
4[about the world of Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)] All of the catastrophic events we read about in the news - economic collapse, power grids breaking down, wholesale climate change, some nuclear skirmish on the other side of the globe - as of next Wednesday, all of those things will have happened. Then we jump 45 years into the future. There, we have a world that has regressed back to almost medieval behavior. Only the artifacts of the present world survive. For instance, the kind of vehicles we have now, which rely so much on computers, really wouldn't survive in a postapocalyptic world. But the hot rods and muscle cars not only survive, they become almost fetishized, like religious artifacts. [2015]
5I just love action movies. For me, the most universal language and the purest syntax of cinema is in the action movies. [2015]
6There's only one perfect place for the camera at any given time. And I learned that on the animations. You can move the camera wherever you like. But to tell the story - it was interesting how much you could influence the story by simply shooting from another perspective. [2014]
7Bernard Herrmann said that cinema is a mosaic art. It's all the little pieces that go together that make up the whole. So you find those little pieces. [2015]
8Roman Polanski, a master filmmaker, said there is only one perfect place for the camera at any given time. When you shoot animation, and you have exactly the same performance, exactly the same words, exactly the same lighting, but you shift the camera, you're virtually able to prove that. You can experiment with the camera in animation with no cost. And you would find, as best as you could, that ideal place...
