William Kaufman directs powerful action dramas while working with the budget of a tuna can. One can reasonably suspect that he got his style by locking himself in room with the best films of John Woo and Michael Mann. The reality is that he immersed himself with quite a bit of commercial work after graduating from the University of North Texas, and it really paid off by rounding out his technical proficiency.
His cinematic style is known for a scary reality during brief but intense scenes of brutality. With three films under his belt, and a fourth in post production, he is well on his way to affecting the masses.
