A fascinating interview in Deadline.com with Alejandro González Iñarritu and his co writers that created the movie “Birdman”, Alexander Dinelaris Jr, Nicolas Giacobone and Armando Bo.
An excerpt follows:
“My personal creative process is full of doubt, all the time, so there are a lot of them (insecurities). To question your own process is a necessity. If you don’t question yourself, it’s impossible to improve. It’s a torturous process for me, and this voice that I have in my head is a fucking dictator, a horrible tyrant. I call it The Inquisitor. No matter how well you present the idea, that voice makes you feel like you will go to hell. I have been meditating for the last five years. That has helped me to identify this voice that really tortured me all my life. Now that I have identified it, I find it is incredibly interesting. That in a way, is the seed of what this film is about. Everybody has their own version of The Inquisitor.” (full interview)
