Editor Chris Lebenzon got his start in motion pictures in the late 1970s, when he started fooling around on the KEM machine that his roommate, Michael Wadleigh, had used to cut Woodstock.

In 2005, director Christopher Nolan (Memento, Insomnia) gave an edgy new twist to the Batman franchise with his gritty, realistic Batman Begins.
