WORDS IN BLOOD - DeLillo writes a sentence or paragraph on one sheet of paper.He then reads it and edits it.He rewrites it.He keeps doing this until he gets it exactly the way he wants it to be. 
Cosmopolis was WRITTEN IN BLOOD. 
"Words written in blood are not to be read but to be learnt by heart" - Nietzsche
The Cronenberg read Cosmopolis in one sitting, pasted the dialogue into screenplay software in 6 days.Shot the film in 6 weeks.Edited it on the quick.Showed it in Cannes one year later.
Wham bam thank you ma'am!
ROB PATTINSON LEARNED THE WORDS BY HEART. He says they still echo in his inner ear. Rob Pattinson is following Nietzsche's urging. 
Cronenberg probably didn't even know Nietzsche said what he said.
