Early film favorites include "Home Alone", "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace", "Toy Story" and "Small Soldiers."As a teenager, Andrew was intrigued by thrillers, as well as Korean and Japanese Cinema, such as Adrian Lyne's "Fatal Attraction", Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige", Akira Kurosawa's "Rashomon", Jee-won Kim's "I Saw the Devil" and Park Chan-wook's "Oldboy."He soon moved into writing and directing, emulating, and influenced by the style of his favorite writer/director Christopher Nolan. "Nolan leaves a lot of things open-ended, which I find impressive," says de Burgh.
