Here is an interview with the director about his film Amores perros.

“Narratively, it was difficult to make sure that people can get all the stories and understand how the pieces fit together. The car crash was a very tough scene, and the dogfights were especially hard. Emotionally, it was a very intense piece, so to get that intensity all the time and maintain the right tone wasn’t easy. Sometimes, shooting on location can be a little unpredictable, but I work hard in pre-production. I arrived to the first day of shooting almost wanting to go to the hospital. I was completely exhausted, because I believe in being thoroughly prepared, and I want to spend my time during the shoot focusing on the scene and the actors. I don’t want to screw around with stupid things, like bad locations or whatever. ”

Iñárritu talks about his Oscar-winning film Birdman in this Variety article.

Inarritu: “From the time we open our eyes, we live our lives in a Steadicam form, and the only editing is when we talk about our lives or remember things.”
