This might have been posted before but here's a pretty cool extended interview from 2010 where Robin Williams talks about Insomnia and working with CN:
I had a great time working with Nolan. My memories of him are just of his being so quiet, and going, “That was wonderful, let’s try that one more time” and, “We got it, thank you.” I don’t ever remember him going, “Aaaagh!” My first impressions of him were that he was just so kind and sweet. After seeing Memento, I was like, “This is the same guy?” He was about to have his first child. Or maybe his first child was conceived on our movie, I’m not sure. If you imagine Gus Van Sant, who’s kind of quiet and that’s-great-let’s-try-this. Nolan’s the same. Just very genteel and low-key. Great, wonderful, nothing ever seemed to phase him.

I just remember Nolan being like an English army officer. “Alright, great, good.” One day there was an avalanche. We were shooting at a glacier lake, and we looked over and thought oh, wow, that’s beautiful. And then all of a sudden all the local Alaskans were going, “GET AWAY FROM THE LAKE.” Because these people understand that by the laws of physics the water will be displaced by a large amount of ice falling into it. And sure enough they were right. The water level rose by four feet. And everyone was like, “WOOOAAAH!” Except Chris who was like, “That’s great, thank you, everyone move away, thank you, stay calm, thank you.”

Thanks for posting.
Robin’s work in Insomnia was underrated imo.
