#Fact
1Good friends with director Francis Ford Coppola. Coppola was an outspoken fan of Dahl's debut feature film Kill Me Again (1989), and helped Red Rock West (1993) get off the ground by convincing his nephew Nicolas Cage to star in the film.
2In 1994, John Dahl was set to direct "Meltdown", an action thriller starring Dolph Lundgren based on a John Carpenter screenplay and the novel "The Prometheus Crisis" (from the authors of 'The Glass Inferno'). The production was shut down only days before the start of principal photography because of a legal dispute between Miramax and Trimark pictures regarding distribution. The project remained unproduced after other attempts to get it off the ground.
3Was once one of Bill Pullman's drama students.

#Quote
1[A Clockwork Orange (1971) ] captured my imagination so much. It was the first film that I saw that made me realize that somebody has to make this stuff. Somebody has to build those sets. Somebody has to paint those paintings. All of a sudden it became accessible. The movie was so compelling and interesting to me on so many levels. The one thing that struck me was that somebody made a movie, and that it was something that maybe, possibly, I could do.
