His short film, The Universe of Dermot Finn (1988), was followed by his screenplay for The Krays (1990), winner of the Evening Standard British Film of the Year Award, and the cult classic The Reflecting Skin (1990) - his first film as both writer and director, which won eleven international awards and was voted one of the Best Ten Films of 1991 by the Los Angeles Times.
