“It’s like that shower scene in Psycho. You’re naked, you’re wet, and there are guys with knives who don’t like you. You can’t be more vulnerable than that. That’s why I showed that bath scene, not in a Bourne-movie kind of impressionistic, quick-cutting way where you don’t really see what’s going on, but where you saw everything that was going on. Because if you’re going to be Nikolai for the time of this movie, following this character, or as we used to say, identifying with him, I want you to have his experiences. So I feel like I would be cheating my audience to do it off camera, or out the window, or some other way.
