Mackenzie first came to prominence via the critically acclaimed Young Adam (2003), an adaptation of Alexander Trocchi's novel; the film was particularly noted for an explicit sex scene involving star Ewan McGregor and Emily Mortimer.[4] This was followed by the less well received Asylum (2005), another period film.[4] His next directorial project was Hallam Foe (2007).

He made his Hollywood debut with Spread (2009).[5] Afterwards, he returned to Scotland to direct Perfect Sense and You Instead (both 2011).[5]

He is also a partner, with Gillian Berrie, in Sigma Films. As well as producing Mackenzie's own films, this company has produced other directors' pictures including Andrea Arnold's Red Road and Lars von Trier's Dogville as well as setting up the production and post-production facility Film City Glasgow.[5]
