“I liked that people appreciate [o filme anterior]. I was very moved by this. This COVID, this pandemic, has stopped my creative process. Particularly during the first few months when we were stuck at home, I eliminated a lot of the distraction. I have to find a way to get that creative impulse back for my new film the same way I did with “The Irishman”. Cut out the awards ceremonies, all that stuff, and go back to a room, alone with a project and wondering if I can start over ”.
