IMDb profile

John Dahl is a film director and screenwriter. Born in Billings, Montana in 1956, Dahl is the second of four children. He first attended the University of Montana, and later attended Montana State University, where he was a student of Bill Pullman. While studying there, he met his wife Beth Friedberg and later received a degree in film. After, he and Friedberg both attended the American Film Institute.

After starting his career as a storyboard artist and assistant director, Dahl moved on to making short films and directing music videos. In 1989 he wrote and directed his first feature film, Kill Me Again. He also directed Red Rock West, The Last Seduction, Rounders, and other films between 1989 and the present.

He was asked by Ron Moore to direct the Season Four episode "The Oath". Originally, David Eick attempted to get Kevin Smith as the director, but due to a miscommunication between Eick and Moore, and a delay on Smith's part, the job went to Dahl.
