Ben Stiller, Google, Paul Dano discussed on The Filmcast

The Filmcast


Good girl season to you, by the way starts on March third. So you have time to catch up. It's all worth it. There's never been anything on the lifetime channel that's been seen by forty million people. Lifetime. We shouldn't. We shouldn't pile on lifetime like many cable channels, right? So. Chance but lifetime in particular has a certain stigma. I think which is not real when they could've. Yeah. No. I would say, yes. I would say yes except I saw season two of unreal. Good. He's one of those great great. And then it wasn't very downhill saved. Unreal. Didn't they and it didn't work out for them? Well, that's that's good girls and watched on Netflix, even though I debuted on NBC, and we'll see how the continues to happen in our digital age. Jeff Tanada you've done something that you've extremely rarely do. We just take David Chen vice? Yeah. Yeah. You'd think I would have learned my lesson at this point. But no, I still I still go back into the into the into the breach last week. You raved about escape at dente Maura, and it sounded like a show that I would love in that my wife would love and that we would love to binge, and it it physically pains me to say, so, but man, you were right. Nice. It is it's a fantastic show. It we're we're not finished yet. We're about halfway through short show. But each episode feels like a film like a full film mo- most. I think the shortest episode is fifty five minutes. So like in the longest episodes like ninety minutes of they're very lengthy episode. So they also structured like in their shot beautifully. But they're also sort of each one has its own intro kind of thing going on it feels like a film mic experience a cinematic experience. So they're full full meals each episode, and man, it's great the performances are outstanding Paul dano, and she'll Toro, but especially. Patricia. Orca Patricia Arquette. Oh my God. She's amazing. She's always amazing. She's just always great. But this show in particular. She really is is just free to be ugly and despicable and sort of. Not not a good person in this show. Right. Not a good person. But very believable, very real. I mean, this is a true story. They're playing real people. But I have not yet gone to kinda see if if there's a likeness. That's that's comparable. I haven't cooked up the store. Here's a pro tip. Don't Google real-life people of shows that you're watching that are based on things because it will almost certainly spoil it like, right? I'm not like literally the Google auto complete will spoil what is going to happen the show. So don't don't do that. But it is it's phenomenal. It is beautifully shot by Ben Stiller directed each episode. And I'm suddenly in off his directorial talented. It's really like felt like it came out of nowhere..
