Somehow I missed the original query and hope this is relevant, but interior monologues are a motif in the cameos in Wim Wenders' "Faraway, So Close" - Gorbachev, Lou Reed, Nick Cave if memory serves.

Something about the monologue in Will Hindle's "Chinese Firedrill" struck me as "interiorized." Maybe not the text itself, but perhaps something about the performance, or its juxtaposition with the images of the solitary protagonist.
