“Joaquin thought about what he would do if he suffered brutal insomnia. Again we gave him freedom to go where he wanted, and in the first and only shot he did we were hypnotized. I remember thinking: ‘What are you doing? Did you really just get in the fridge? For us, contemplating it was funny and strange at the same time, ”said the filmmaker.

In the same way, Phoenix separated from the script for another memorable scene: the dance in the subway of Gothic City was also an improvisation.

"Joaquin created the whole dance and, after the success of that scene, we began to create more moments like that," he said.
