Personal Quote:

Directing non-actors is difficult. Directing actors in a foreign language is even more difficult. Directing non-actors in a language that you yourself don't understand is the craziest thing you can possibly think of. But I would do it again in a minute. See more »

Trivia:

One of three people to win back-to-back Oscars for Best Director (the others are: John Ford and Joseph L. Mankiewicz). Iñárritu is the first to do so since Manckiewicz in 1950 and 51. Lewis Milestone also won two years in a row, however, there were two Oscar ceremonies in 1930. Milestone won an Oscar for Best Director in the second award show of that year, while Frank Lloyd won in the first. See more »
