DE PALMA TALKS ABOUT HOW ISABELLE'S WORKING METHODS ARE MUCH LIKE HIS OWN
"It's very much the way I work. I mean, so much of what I photograph or put into my movies comes from my dreams and my subconscious. I'm up in the middle of the night, I sleep for a couple of hours, and get up with a new idea, and that's very much the way Isabelle is. She... Creativity comes from these things that occur while you're unconscious."
RACHEL: DE PALMA HAS "CLEAR VISION", YET HAS NO FEAR ABOUT MAKING CHANGES ON SET
"It's been great. It's been really lovely, because he has such a clear vision of this film. You know, he has said that he has it all mapped out in his head. And, you know, shot-by-shot. Which can sound quite scary, because you think, 'Is there room for anything else?' And then you get on set with him, and he's so open and receptive and collaborative, he gives great direction, and, you know, I don't know if this just comes with experience, but he doesn't seem to have any fear when it comes to making changes, or opening things up... You know, it's been quite calming. [Laughs] It's been a really nice combination of things."
NOOMI ON THE POWER STRUGGLE BETWEEN HER CHARACTER AND RACHEL'S
"They are like kindred spirits, they are quite similar, but Christine, Rachel's character, is my boss, and I'm working for her, so in the power position, she's stronger than me. And so it's like a dance between us, in a way... I like that it's... In every scene we've been doing, it's so many different things going on... and sometimes I feel like, 'Whoa! I've got to get my head around this, and straighten out what's really going on', because they're playing so many games, these like mind games with each other."
