Alexandre Rockwell began his ascent to cult-stardom when his 1992 film In The Soup took home the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, beating out, among others, Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.

A sharp eye for talent, Alex helped launch the careers of such greats as Peter Dinklage, Steve Buscemi, and Sam Rockwell.
