Biography

New Zealand-born writer-director Scott Reynolds made his first short film "The Minute" in 1992 and followed with "A Game With No Rules" (1994), both produced by Jonathan Dowling, the man behind Garth Maxwell's 1993 feature "Jack Be Nimble". The latter was purchased by Miramax for theatrical release in America and brought the filmmaker to the attention of the company's head honchos, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who bankrolled his sophomore feature, "Heaven" (1998), but not before Dowling under the auspices of the New Zealand Film Commission presented his feature debut "The Ugly" (1997), a stunningly macabre, disturbing and structurally innovative, post-modern psycho-thriller.
