Mexican filmmaking duo Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and Guillermo Arriaga are continuing to feud after ending their working partnership last year, as they accuse each other of trying to steal the limelight in wake of the success of their Oscar-nominated movie Babel.
The letter, published in Mexican magazine Chilanga on Monday, reads, “It’s a shame that in your unjustified obsession to claim sole responsibility for the film, you seem not to recognize that movies are an art of deep collaboration.”
In a recent radio interview, Arriaga claimed Inarritu had incorrectly listed himself as the creator of Babel in the film credits, saying, “I tried to defend the collective nature of the film. It belongs to everyone.”
