Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Gained initial attention for his work on "The Company of Wolves" (1985), Neil Jordan's revisionist version of "Little Red Riding Hood," before designing Stanley Kubrick's Viet Nam opus "Full Metal Jacket" (1987). Furst won an Oscar for creating the baroque, comic-book Gotham City and stylish Batmobile of "Batman" (1989), and in 1991 designed New York's celebrity-owned, movie-themed restaurant, Planet Hollywood. The film community was shocked by Furst's untimely death, apparently the result of a suicidal leap which abruptly ended a brilliant career.
