Directed films with a broad range of subject matter, including CB radios (Handle with Care, 1977), the Mafia (Married to the Mob, 1988) and AIDS (Philadelphia, 1993). Directed concert films featuring artists such as the Talking Heads (Stop Making Sense, 1984) and Neil Young (Neil Young: Heart of Gold, 2006).
