The Little Things Movie Review
"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.

No, because you are the worst coach team in the NFL. Well, besides that, the Jets Who were willing participants in their own hanging. Yesterday was incredible. From a jet standpoint, it was so incredible. It's almost impressive. Up by four points. 28 24. They have the Raiders with 13 seconds to play done. Raiders are on the 46 yard line just across midfield. It's 3rd and 10. All the jets have to do is drop everybody back. You drop everybody back to prevent against the Hail Mary. And you let The Raiders have anything underneath there in the middle of the field as long as you can tackle the Raider player. In the field of play. More than likely, the game's gonna be over. If it's not, there's gonna be only one play left..

"Three years after leaving Alabama back home one Saturday afternoon. Ran into a girl that had been a cheerleader at my hospital. Her name was Jane and I immediately tried to get Jane to go out with me on a date. I remanded Err that we were friends in high school and we could probably have a great time on a date and But Jane wouldn't go. She didn't want to go where I wanted to go. I wanted to go to a movie to AFI ater are driving And you remember those days you could Go to the driving anteater and park on the back row back there. And she went in for that. And so the next morning was Sunday. Yeah. So many of you listening will be going to church this morning. I hope you are. I hope you're in a great local church with a great pastor. I didn't have a church. I didn't go to church. Nobody in my family went to church. And so on. That particular Sunday morning I went to the river thinking that I could Take our bow. We could go water ski, and we could have a few cool ones up there and lay on the beach on the river. But that didn't happen because that day that fateful day circumstances happened. That changed my entire life. No, I didn't get in Iraq. No, I didn't have a disaster. Nothing like that. I mean, the only disaster was the boat wouldn't run and it wouldn't run right? We were forced to come home early. And by coming home early, which was early on a Sunday afternoon. I didn't want to be bored. I mean, I had to go backto work comes on Monday, so I didn't want to be bored, so act started calling around trying to get a date. And I called up that girl Jane that I had run up on Saturday afternoon. The Oh Ha schoo cheerleader that I had known. And this time when I asked her to go out, she said, yes. If you want to go to church. I was a bit shocked in the church. Are you kidding me? I mean, I don't go to church, and it was like, if you want today with me, you're going to church and when you're hard up for a date, I bet you can take church, right? So I went and I thought when churches over, then we'll We'll go Do what you normally do on a day. Go get something to eat. Maybe go cruise around whatever. No, I went to that church, not thinking about what was about to happen. Now that was a great pastor. Wonderful man. But I didn't listen. I mean, I wanted to sit in the back. I didn't want to get up to close. I don't wantto get up towards the slobber section, you know, and I sat in the back and didn't pay any attention. And when it was over, they gave an invitation. They asked people to come forward and Jane asked me when.
'Palm Springs' is like 'Groundhog Day' all over (and over) again
"Getting straight into Palm Springs, and and you know we're in the non spoiler section right now, but we'll get into a little later really. Really, I'm just curious because you know most writers when they know that they're in the shadow of Groundhog Day, you know they kinda give up. Because how could you do better than groundhog day, but would soon entertaining about your film, is you? You take it in a different direction, but you still you know I feel pay a little bit of orange to some of the the mathematics of groundhog day and kind of go on your own direction. Tell me, tell me how palm springs started. I know it's the most boring question. The you've been asked a million times, but we're GONNA get deeper into the story mechanics, so it'll be interesting to hear how the idea formed. On At Afi maximum I made a couple of shorts together made our thesis Dome Together, and then during our second year there. Trial McDowell and Justin later came in showed us the one I love. And they're both in fi. grads had graduated maybe eight years earlier than when they aim roughly at at and they talked about being stuck in. A finishing school being stuck in kind of a development hell. On some other movie, and then there, whatever five years out of school and they didn't have much to show with it, children and Think drugs at a general meeting with Mark Who said like what do you have that we can go and make? Something on the cheap, and they're. They made the one I love, and so their advice to our entire class was like. Go make something right away. Is that same kind of marked loss. Due to blast. Brothers model just like just make something. and I think maximum. I took that to heart in the week after graduation. I think exactly five years ago, maybe this weekend or last week and we. We Like let's make our first meeting. We headed out the palm springs in had a our little last week in talking about. What we want to be is one location or locations contained that we know we can do. and. We both have an affinity to palm springs settled on hot springs, but Out Can, we came with a sketch of this character. Niles, who is just who was born out of conversation between me and Max in like? Mining our own personal fears in shame and insecurities, and from that point on Like it evolved into the groundhog day. Thing in a way. Did it just like? Ask US five years ago, it was it was more like of leaving Las Vegas. In just. As our as our own personal lives change over the cut, the following years, and you know. The influence of large forty-nine on me all that stuff it. It led the movie into a different direction than I think initially set out to do, and then once we landed on the ground hog day aspect of it all. You can look at groundhog days. Maybe at the end he figures out the meaning life. He's gifted this. This the day handing in the next day begins

There's precedent for this. Actually. This is relevant to our conversation. Today. Carry is celebrating her anniversary with drew her intended, and we're GONNA. Be Talking about a related topics. We say we royally. We are here with. With Roger Nygaard today who you may remember if you've listened to the entire show, you were the guest for our eighth episode. Eighth Episode Ever Wow if anybody's listening and his listen to every show since then you deserve a medal. Yeah, because a lot of shows, people have, and they deserve medals. Yeah, or at least a merit badge, a ribbon. Yeah, that was back in two thousand eleven when we started and we were talking to you then about. About the nature of existence, a documentary that you had created at that time you were exploring the depths of why we're here. All these deep questions was eighty, four, eighty three. There were a lot of questions. Yeah, I had a somewhere above eighty ninety questions that I asked everybody all my interview subjects, and squeezed it all into one documentary called the nature of existence. My core question, though above all those sub questions was. Why do we exist? What is our purpose here? Why are we supposed to do big topic in I? Set out to solve it and you did age-old existentialist question philosophers have been wrestling with it for centuries and I went out and solved. You didn't give away the answer on that episode, so you still have to watch that documentary. If you want to know the answer, but it's very socratic in that you, the the what I try to do is lead the viewer in a direction, so you can make your own decision or come to a realization on your own without me. Preaching to you, here's the answer well. That's smart. Because I think you were right to resist. Giving it on a silver platter because it doesn't work that way. However, when I made my next documentary, we may talk about today. The truth about marriage at the end I just stood up and said okay. Here's the answer. In case you missed it. Stop everything here. It is, and you did okay, so it's an eighty two minute documentary, the truth about marriage and you do you solve it? You talk to lots of experts and a lot of couples. Trying to think of couples as the correct collective term, yeah couples, but there's some complicated dynamic, because not everybody's relationship is the same. That's not a pejorative yet, but at the end of the documentary. Yes, you do solve it exactly what the truth is about marriage. I didn't know the answer when I sent out and I I become obsessed with what I'm doing wrong way. I'm such a failure. Hold on, you're leading me into interesting conversation and I haven't finished. Finished introducing you yet? We should also say by the way on that episode when we talk you us. I realized that was the first time that carried the name swap. She loves this every down then she decides to claim that she is Ross Blocher and I am thus forced by process of elimination to Declare Myself Carrie poppy. That was the first time she did it.

"A hundred percent AFI you can't have customers coming in getting cove it is still relatively minor I mean when you look at the number of people and who actually die it's it's still still point one or and if it's higher that let's say it's more than one percent two percent three percent are it's you know do you take the chance and tell you I mean we are I totally biased died when we were here because we have jobs you know even though money has been cut at cetera we we still come to work every day and we still get a paycheck and I'm not losing my house I'm still able to pay my bills hi so what what I do and I don't know the answer to that my guess is if I have to I take the chance I'd rather pay the Toadies and simply just take the chance and go all I can do is be as careful as I can now you do have a lot of control in the in the you know there's nothing you can do to a hundred percent prevent getting the virus if you go out and about but you do have a tremendous amount of control over lowering your personal risk of getting it yeah and but now if you were in a restaurant with Max if you wash those hands after very careful to not touch your face you can you can reduce that risk significantly you're not so we're not completely helpless now to try to mitigate the risk but your point is well taken there's still some risk yeah and I think to date being kind to one another if somebody comes to work in your work place is in a place that mandate and masks but they tell you I would really appreciate it if you did wear a mask what's the harm in that you know what I mean I think we need to be very and empathetic with each other's feelings about this issue because this is a rough territory that we've not all then three before for screaming at the top of your lungs you a whole look at what you're doing and trying to avoid that all right that's maybe that's why I am having a problem out there publicly when I go to the supermarket are you a Yeller or they get a lead on the other to tell somebody to put their mascot consider my age I'm old Yeller and oh boy okay let's take a break we'll come back looking AT wind it differently I know that's perfect you know it's the perfect movie for me let's go ahead we'll take a break come back and do.

"The I heart radio apps kind of thought you were doing a parody of all the thank you press conference crap I really did it no eight states for real the overall ratings just came out at two o'clock in death AFI's overall the number one station in the market and we thank you for that as I think we provided the by far the best coverage of this fiasco yeah unfortunately we need a pandemic to get now you're responsible now people will be pointing fingers here that's right conspiracy theorists will say that KFI do with one of our time is a pandemic okay twenty one of us release the virus not me I don't have any viruses and by the way this is why if you're an advertiser you should be advertising right now is you're gonna get a bigger bang advertising on on this station than anywhere else right that's right and believe it or not eventually the economy is coming back that's right so you want to be maybe not as quick here in California's other places I've been to be a first mover establish your at your identity for a moment because you know I came to the conclusion that we were talking about this a bit on Friday you know Gavin Newsom and this one is a determinant and statistics of the counties have to meet in order to open up any earlier than the state which includes no cold nineteen deaths for two weeks ten days fourteen days I should say and I I think what that one's my son explained that another article was what we got to eventually on Friday and maybe I'm being the optimist here but he's trying to save your county wants to open today then this is what you got to meet but that doesn't mean every county has to meet this because eventually the state is going to open up more and more and and they they don't want for that the thing is he's got to put it but then I said well what about Sutter and Yuba counties in Modoc he's already threatening them don't haven't they already met some of those criteria to world markets together their fourteen day streak the criteria is arbitrary and this is why I think everybody ought to be calling up the klin talks office and every other office and everybody in the state should file their own lawsuit what he's doing is arbitrary it doesn't follow any pattern it doesn't make any sense and it's not reachable when I saw today the number of the cases that are exploding still in nursing homes around the state and now in prisons I I did you see what's happening in Santa Barbara county eighty percent of the new cases last week came from two federal prisons how in the hell can you justify locking down normal people in Santa Barbara when the caseload is coming from inside the federal penitentiaries how can you do that you you're using that number to say wow it's like in Santa Barbara you haven't quite contain the virus very well I have you know well that's that's a whole separate universe the federal prisons is that what Santa Barbara has to work under and the same thing here in LA what the public is not responsible for the gross mismanagement of the nursing homes and the presence terminal island is filled with corona viruses there's a story today the prisoners are trying to give each other the corona virus so we have to be on lockdown because does not go heads are trying to get the disease that's how they get out yeah that's how they get out so so the these arbitrary numbers are absurd the numbers go up when you do more testing should we then do less testing than our numbers will go lower this is crazy I think we can all see that that all businesses should open up and everybody should decide to do whatever they need to do to feel safe the other seventy percent of the economy is open he said that today he doesn't feel that way some said seventy percent of the economy is open yeah well I'm not not not my neighborhood just about every shop disclosure you play that Deborah mark did you play that clipper diverted I see that which club is that big Newsome said seventy percent so you want to hear it I can do it okay on a second over seventy percent of the economy is open with some modifications a seventy plus percent that's just something that I want to reinforce it stop and check it first of all that inspired hundred that when I heard her play that well I think that is from the book of misleading nuisance to tell you because the government because they haven't done anything yet rounded worker while part of the economy that's a good point that what is that so that's a thirty percent unemployment rate isn't it are you right that's still pretty bad yeah see that's what I'm saying I'm just saying my personal experience it doesn't feel like seventy percent of the economy around because but it doesn't feel like it it doesn't look like it I wish you all the businesses closed on the main streets near me I see a lot of my friends well I guess they're working from home I guess that's the trick here a lot of people are working from home right but like the artist's work that's why they're such a class divide because the the people who work from home have this disdain about opening up because their lives haven't changed that much it's like they don't understand how many people can't work at home and are losing their business is losing their jobs and facing severe financial situations I I have to really like bite my tongue talking to people even people I know because it is shocking how many people who've let's say got it made or R. C. Q. R. because they can work at home I have no idea what it's like for people who haven't got it made or have to work outside it doesn't even occur to them they're on their high horse they're arrogant and they're snotty about it it's like well I think in the interests of the state state so what do you know what it's like but were you ever like twenty five years old or were you just was everybody born rich I I I I'm amazing how people forgot what it's like when you're starting out with what it's like to have a business and you meet a payroll when you got a hundred people on your payroll and their families their kids their mortgages I complete amnesia for Hugh and it must be part of the whole political derangement mental system did the political derangement mental condition that's going on yeah you turn on the local news over the weekend and it was you know obviously mother's day but it was all about look flowers people are getting flowers and people walking on parks and walking into parks and going on trails but I'm like to say nothing we need more than this but it's like well you got these crumbs and they try to make a really feel grateful for it well it's something isn't it yeah yeah that's that's the problem because they shut down everything they throw out little bits of bread to us and expect us to do the happy dance aren't you grateful hi allowed the florist shops to be open all right allow the toy stores to be opened this is dictatorial this this is arbitrary it's unfair it's unconstitutional it's wrong no man or woman should ever have this kind of power because this is what happens okay the whole world has been governed by dictators and kings and emperors since the beginning of time and it always turned out badly for the people down below and the only time there was some steps semblance of a fair civilization is what we had democracies and we had deluded power we spread it out among a chief executive legislatures in a judicial system that more or that has a lot of problems but it's way better way better than the king and right now some for some reason most of the forty million people in California decided to surrender all their constitutional rights in their freedoms and all the amendments and say Hey can do some do what you want here yeah you heard Tom McClintock say that quarantining the healthy eating healthy okay I guess I would given the first two weeks three weeks because we didn't know but now we know that was two months okay now we know the average age of death is eighty now we know more than half the deaths are nursing homes which the government had the responsibility to protect and they failed new some failed I said he failed to carry water supervisors failed they failed to protect their single patients people should say it out loud people should say it repeatedly should be the lead story in every news they failed to protect the most vulnerable they're punishing the people or the least vulnerable good talk there's nobody who can defend this because there was a number of stories over the weekend and only about the nursing homes in California but in other states of course to complete the Bakul in New York state with the

A One-Woman-Important-Conversations Business
"You've called yourself a one woman important. Conversations Business which I I like? How do you suggest people start that conversation at work or just in general? I think in general because I think a lot of people want to be be introspective and also there are so many demands and distractions and you're refreshing AFI checking email tax. goes off that it's hard hard to know how to actually start having those types of conversations. Either with yourselves more with the other people in your life adjust practicing asking questions. I was just with a friend yesterday and he was like I know people ask. How am I was like what? That's a very general basic questions. I mean that's the point like what is it that you want to know. Do you want to know. Oh how my day was. Do you want to know how emotionally who's GonNa come up to you and just ask out of the blue. How are you doing emotionally intense? And he's like I know but I WANNA get to the heart of the issue and I was like okay. No one's GONNA start off that way but it is a good practice as you're having conversations to keep asking questions to go a little bit deeper as opposed to leaving things things at the surface level so instead of just saying like how are you fine. Great you can ask someone what's been going on with your week as they answer questions continuing to ask because I find that we all start off surface all of us. We all start off with just a quick answers and the quick shallow questions but the deeper we go the more people realize you're genuinely interested in me. You're genuinely interested in what I have to say or what I think. And when people feel as if they matter they tend to much more quickly be authentic antic and strip some of that surface to me. That's the easiest way to start is to make sure that whoever you're talking to knows that you you actually care about what they're saying and continue to ask deeper questions. The narrative intelligence. It's my favorite thing. It's really the core kind of principle that I teach in the book. Narrative intelligence is our ability to understand and see the stories. Is that are shaping us in shaping the world around us so we talk about emotional intelligence. IQ right but no one ever teaches us that everything we see everything we consume is telling us a story that is shaping how we think and how we view the world and all the industries that I worked in. They know this very well right. Like politics understands. The power story media understands the power of story even the tech industry right. I worked at snapchat snapchat literally created the vertical story format story being a frame for your experience. It's these are industries that understand using story to get people to think a certain way believe and behave a certain way and we the average person just sitting around consuming and have no no idea that that's happening so narrative intelligence is in some ways putting that power back in the hands of people and saying okay. When I'm watching this film? What is it actually you telling me? What is the premise based on? What is the narrative here? Yes it's a fun love story but it is telling me the story that there is one soulmate one person for me out of the billions of people on this planet. Do I believe that or not right like asking that question. That's narrative intelligence in practice. If someone is telling doing me that the best way to succeed is to hustle and make a lot of money and Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. They have this kind of very clear path to stop. and Ask yourself self before you just run in and do it. They say ask yourself. What are they telling me about success? What is the story here about my purpose about my identity? Do I believe that yes or no. It's not up to me to tell you whether it's good or bad but just the act and the art of saying what is the real story here. And how can I see it. And then make a conscious choice to accept did or reject it as I'm sure people are listening and probably going to be very inspired and are going to be like I didn't know who it was. I'm going to follow her now. Like I I like the story I like. I like the story. She's telling and they're GONNA buy your book. Yeah they're going to buy her out. But I think the question people are going to have is. How do you make money doing what you're doing like wizard job? What does your day to day look like? It's just found someone the other day who said Oh it's a portfolio career and I was like Oh what Buzzer buzzword. They just learned it means. I do several things but they are all tied to what we've just talked about. So how do I make money. I consult with organizations brands when they WANNA have important conversations whether with their employees or their consumers. I'll come in and help them design an event or design kind of a messaging campaign designed like we want to have an important conversation about issue. She acts or about topic x Eric. Help US strategize that come facilitate that. So that's one way. Second way is through content through books. Do podcasts through workshops and trainings things so I come in and I actually help people help staff. I helped regular individual people craft their story and understand how to better talk about their life their work and and then the last thing is like hosting and facilitating so moderating and interviewing. I love to ask questions so those are all the pieces. What sage house does which is my company is? It does all that like I said Ed specifically for brands and for organizations and so we'll come in and design the meaningful conversation that helps you write a story. Can you talk about the name. Yes so it's funny. I didn't think about this at first which I probably should have but being in California when I said Stage House people thought I meant like sage. That's why ass I was like no I. We have been known to sage office during the year and my home. So wasn't that but I guess it works too 'cause I am very spiritual and he did but no I meant it because sage as in a wise the person that we are generation in a society right now that is so overloaded with information and we have access to anything we want to know what our fingertips but wisdom is deeper than that it is. How do you apply that as how do you process that? How do you sort through that information? Fine Gems that help us live better lives that is what stages are and I think we have too few sages in too many influencers and so kind of what my mission is with these conversations and these spaces and this content ah is always to dig deep and get to the true wisdom of how we can
"afi" Discussed on KFI AM 640
"Main AFI radio station we do Jim handle here it is a Monday morning I some big cases were following at the corona virus death toll is now nine hundred and ten over twenty thousand people in fact tonight New Hampshire primary last night was the Oscars her what an Oscar it weighs diversity political correctness down to a ridiculous degree will talk to Steve Gregory up at nine o'clock now a little bit about housing there was we talked about this before Senate bill fifty are which was introduced for the third time senator Scott Weiner San Francisco who authored it and that this would have forced cities and counties to allow mid rise apartments and for plaques is near mass transit areas and this is this would in fact in fact sake that a affects single family neighborhoods it changes single family neighborhoods around these job mass transit locations talk about to as subway stations plus centers that sort of thing and it has a lot more OMV in northern California then here if it is going to pass eventually it's not going to be because of southern California it's going to be because of the bay area and out what's the big reason well because you can't buy a home under any circumstances in the bay area as expensive as it is in LA for example and half a million dollars median price of five hundred and fifty thousand dollars something along those lines the median home price in San for says San Francisco is a stunning one point four million dollars so one of the political considerations is say you know what no one is ever going to buy a house so let's take some of these older neighborhoods are near transit stops and let's go ahead and die be able to create four plex is and are made to meet height apartments or low rise apartments actually and so it really is San Francisco that this is all about however the campaign for this song alliance for community transit now way hi this is an organization that increases our wants to increase housing near trunk transit sob and is against the S. B. I. S. B. fifty says you know because it works in the bay area it doesn't exactly work in our region our first of all because there is relatively affordable housing because the neighborhoods here have tremendous clout every time you turn around there is the neighborhood of groups that are formed to file lawsuits and you don't touch it it's more affordable so at least it's not completely crazy and so there's a lot of political opposition here much more then up north and the other thing is what ended up happening is developers here they're going wait a minute because we are forced to for example if you have a larger than a ten unit project there has to be Monday in our funding or space that has to be set aside for low income housing well in San Francisco there's no such thing as low income housing under any circumstances can you imagine the median price is one point four million the only way you're going to be able to get low income subsidized housing near there is for the government to scan you imagine subsidizing something it's a million dollars or north you can't do it so what happened is we for the third time change the bill this year he lost for a benefactors lost all three years and what he's up okay tell you what instead of cramming this down your throat we're gonna give cities and counties two years to develop their own blue prints for growth that could maybe be an alternative DSP fifty and however local governments would still have to allow for blacks is in single family neighborhoods but first developers have to remodel existing homes rather than demolishing them and building new ones sort of sort of a compromise but the other problem in all of this is that the local authorities which historically has been have been in charge of all building they're the ones that decide the planning departments are city that zoning Star City the ability to build city well I product that is going to be taken away from the cities and that is a big big problem also we have something called the transit oriented communities program this is the city of Los Angeles controlled program where certain areas have in fact been set aside and the Iraq these parcels are controlled by this organization the bill would exempt that so that's why LA as important as it is it's really gonna be controlled up north when we talk about housing and when we talk about denser house in which I don't think there is there's any way to stop that so right now the advantages of being right near a transit hub and living in a great neighborhood what you're gonna have denser housing and also the property values are gonna drop pretty dramatically but something's gotta give I mean we are up against a problem that I think is virtually insurmountable so something has to give all right coming up give her a flight shaming flight shaming white shaming I don't think so and you know who actually started this Greta third Burke overturned burger ten Berg tune Barry yeah her to and I'll I'll tell you how it all that connects all three of those ladies are involved it really it's incredible they're all name brand yeah I total all the great is being and are involved with this.
Kirk Douglas, Towering Icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Dies at 103
"So that's from the nineteen sixty film Spartacus it's Kirk Douglas in one of the best known scenes of his long Hollywood career Kirk Douglas died yesterday at the remarkable age of a hundred and three throughout the fifties and sixties he embodied a certain romantic idea of Old World masculinity in his films he often made movies about cowboys and soldiers prize fighters and rebels his most famous movie was Spartacus but the movie that made him a Hollywood star with the nineteen forty nine boxing movie champion the person he was in real life often mirrored the tough man that he portrayed on screen Kirk Douglas had a difficult childhood he grew up in New York in extreme poverty he actually was a wrestler and spent time in the navy before his success on Broadway he later went on to make movies that now define the era of Hollywood classics in nineteen eighty one Kirk Douglas received the presidential medal of freedom and fifteen years later he earned an honorary Oscar for lifetime achievement Jason Gorder he's a movie critic and a big fan of Kirk Douglas is work and he's here to reflect on the actors impact on the film world to chase and thanks for being here my pleasure and honor to speak about this giant of talent what do you think when you think Kirk Douglas I think somebody that helped change what we think of of modern cinema frankly he's he bridge is very much the gap between sort of the traditional Hollywood leading man that's sort of you know the beautiful dimple in the middle of his chin the incredible physique a sort of sense that we had of the strong man the strong big actor but is also somebody that brought a great deal sensitivity to his character system the steps two wasn't simply a matinee idol who somebody that sort of brought through his performance a dramatic richness that would we'd be exhibited in many of his contemporaries people like Burt Lancaster but also into people like Marlon Brando who get celebrations and more but he also brought a very political a sophisticated political angle to his films he somebody that absolutely shifted the conversation but what it was like to be a performer not simply studio tool but somebody that could take charge of his own career and shift at and that's when the look of the great things that he did everything that we saw after the fact of of these performers that are able to shape their careers much more explicit way he was a pioneer on that front would you consider that is greatest contribution or what for you just it gleams above all the rest I mean for me my personal connection or to serve master pieces which are the films that he did with Kubrick puzzle glory was a film that nobody wanted to make nobody wanted to make this sort of anti war sophisticated look at World War one it was sort of it was a war that nobody was particularly interested in such a grisly film that about moral ambivalence that wasn't really to be taken up and he and his production company Brina named after his mother foster got the money together now a great deal the budget went towards him but nonetheless he gave a shot to this this quirky New York filmmaker called Stanley Kubrick an fifty seven nineteen sixty while he was doing Spartacus the other our grand collaboration there's another director and after a week Douglas realize this is not going to work and he brought in correct now that the dynamic between the two of them was a little tenuous but none the less he brought this to start the superstar director to one of the sort of last big epic Hollywood cast of thousands films and still injected with the with this real subtlety and real intelligence of performance and finally with Spartacus again the connection Douglas Trumbull is it was Kirk Douglas who unapologetically said this blacklisted armed writer is going to get credit actually John F. Kennedy cross the picket line in order to see Spartacus this is what broke the blacklist the famous arms those that were accused of being communists so in so many ways I Kirk Douglas of star power was used for good he was used to bring stories to screen that would have been brought otherwise he brought directors that otherwise Hollywood didn't think that were I'm sufficiently commercial and you brought to light the hypocrisy of actually bring these writers to to dream if for the if you only watch two forms of Kirk Douglas these are ones actually fully sober in you know a lot of people will be doing that tonight I want to play you a clip from almost thirty years ago no looking back I realize I was much more successful when I forgot about being a hit for years I proclaim loudly that a movie must be good entertainment no messages for me but I've changed it must in some small way touch improve humanity that was Kirk Douglas accepting a lifetime achievement award from the American film institute and you can hear that Douglas was ingesting this chiseled jaw line or a typical Hollywood celebrity of the era is like you say he was a man of principle and you're quite cranky I hear that a lot of people didn't get along with him but is that how he will be remembered do you think is a man of principle was incredibly philanthropic and and again his story is fascinating he has for his father was a smart the dealer a rag command in upstate New York came from nothing I'm dealt with severe anti semitism the sun changes name sort of inculcates himself into Hollywood as a sort of brash fully American leading man from that he saw the the division between high and low and he really took that film trophic spirit that's that moral spirit the moral conviction through his career what a hundred three is a long time to live but he lived a very very full life and I believe when he was getting at AFI award he had just been in a tragic helicopter accident then here he is again I'm coming to the fore because he was called his performance he was there to actually have the signs that he also had a stroke he's kind of had nine lives and his son Michael Douglas was watching all of this and he's an acting icon in his own right do you think that that what is it from Kirk Douglas that you see that Michael Douglas has it has in him I mean I've said the drive the conviction but of the the big deal is that once a problem OR one flew over the cuckoo's nest was a Kirk Douglas production he actually did the stage production he got the rights again he saw this very quirky very politically charged project his son would eventually produce the film in the Afghan Oscar glory because of that so so the the tradition certainly carries along with Michael Douglas but the I mean it's it's for for viewers who are not familiar with this film we just don't really have a Kirk Douglas anymore the system doesn't really work with that but we have certain people the Brad Pitt's of this world who are stars but also bringing in these films after their production so it's quite remarkable thank you so much Jason Jason is a film critic he joins us live in the studio to talk about the death of Hollywood actor Kirk Douglas who died yesterday at the age of a hundred

Joker review: Love it or hate it
"Of film that did really hot though that would be joker and it is polarizing films of the year it is true a love it or hate it type of film and I'm finding myself on the ladder side of that Ledger I went into this folks expecting that it's going to be where the best films of the year and I couldn't wait for it and I love the fact that clearly taught phelps is paying them is to score says and had said that taxi driver in comedy ric huge references and reference points for him but as I tweeted in my review I said tops pays homage and Aaron Charles is a good guys a loyal listener the podcast he immediately corrected me the tweets that have paid them is it's a derivative I'm like that's true tops is no Martin Scorsese he's making taxi driver King Comedy Without the Intelligence in the witch and the subtlety now the story is supposed to be this forever alone in a crowd failed comedian Arthur fleck seeks connections he walks the streets of Gotham city Arthur wars to masks the one he pays for his day job as a clown and the guys he x any futile attempt to feel like he's part of the world around him isolated bullied and disregarded by society flack begins a slow descent into madness as he transformed into the criminal mastermind known as the joker sounds great but it's not the first thirty minutes or so I enjoyed because I could appreciate Lawrence share the director of photography clearly again paying monster Scorsese's taxi driver literally adult movie theater they show in the early minutes you see the garbage piling up feels like they're trying to evoke the taxi driver of the seventies but you know taxi driver even though it's a very dark film and it's an urban nightmare there's still moments of Levity Q. Albert Brooks who is hilarious in the movie documents stool pigeons there's still romance you know when score says he was feted by the Afi with a lifetime achievement award Julia Roberts introduced a clip and it's a wonderful clip where Travis has I picking up betsy and it shows you know for a guy who doesn't always get a claim for having a playful touch it's a really sweet scene and the way that Travis picks her up he says you know I think it was beautiful whoa ever seen and he says when he's going to pick her up and she'll be on time and I'm sure you will and it's a really nice scene and your member of the fact that Travis has a Mohawk and ends up gunning down a bunch of thugs moments like that and it's you know there's a glimmer of upside there's none of that era joker it is a relentlessly bleak thoroughly unpleasant film experience you know comedy has great humor in the movie I mean it's a really funny movie within the fact that Rupert Pumpkin is a guy who is a very painful isolated self-loathing character but it's still really funny I mean the fact he's so obsessed with Jerry Lewis talk show hosts that eventually feels compelled to kidnap him there's a dark undercurrent always but there's some big time lapse in the way that rupert is just so delusional in this film though there's none of that I mean it is just a painful experience it's about as subtle as a sledgehammer to the Groin and even though Joaquin Phoenix is getting Oscar buzz and and I do is an excellent actor I think the performance owes a little bit to his character into the master Kinda feel like it's a you know he's almost Pankaj to that character and listen he's a talented guy it's also always performance at the Oscars love I mean they love these showy flamboyant performances he's got a bunch of ticks the over laughing it's very flamboyant it's not today it's bad acting is pointing out that the Oscars love this kind of stuff so I don't even know if he deserves a best actor nomination but I can guarantee you we'll get nominated for one and he's certainly an intense actor and gave it two and a half maple leafs that was right after the movie the more I've thought about it I'm giving it only two maple leafs like I said it's just too derivative and just to pleasurable of film experience and there's obviously but other conversations about it people are mentioning is it a commentary mental illness and the fact that mentally ill people are being ignored is it a film it's inciting violence a natural born killers which I thought a lot actually watching them which I think is an excellent movie and I liked a lot Owen gleiberman right favourite film critics he championed natural born killers and unfortunately for me he's actually repeating jokers well though he next article which he said everyone is very polarized by being the was polarize similar decades said people either loving or hating it made a ton of money doc tober opening ever in terms of rotten tomatoes in this won best picture at the Venice Film Festival the Golden Line which means it could be an Oscar contender but even a good article from hr it's got fiber he was saying that some voters have said I don't know whether to give it every Oscar or to give it a Razzie like that's that's exactly the way we're looking at with this film because is so polarizing and people are just walking out there arguing about immediately in terms of rotten tomatoes sixty percent is the average above that is above average below that is below average Chris only sixty nine percent but audiences liked it they gave it a ninety percent so ultimately it was not a film for me it's not a film I would recommend Joe I don't know if you saw it but the floor is yours what say you I and I was Gonna go see it until you told me just how bleak and pleasurable it was and I was GonNa see last night and I thought I don't really need to if it's just GonNa be that dark I'm sure walking Phoenix is really really good in it but if it's just someone falling down a staircase in slow motion for two hours I'm just like I I got my the baseball team to do that I don't need to watch that in the cinema for two hours absolutely right you I mean there's just nothing as I said you think of a dark movie you love this year's big movie lovers I'm that there's still moments of levity there are still moments of light amidst the darkness and the comedy of the film is making this isn't that this is just Oh he's laughed at ridiculed he punched he finally acts out his violent urges and feel some sort of release and that causes them to do more. I mean it's just like you said Joe I the project and just watch your twins I wouldn't recommend the film too many

You're ready to write a check Jin for what reparations for this idea has been bandied about for decades. Now decades literally pops up like every year, but Booker Spartacus the Senator for president. Yes. Don't forget the first who actually introduce it on the Senate floor yesterday talked about in an interview before he actually took action on it. Here's what he says. Yes. Support for black people. I support reparations I support economically designed programs with race as as a conscious part of them that balance the scales and address past ills while area go, it's the thing. So according to Cory Booker, I'm supposed to or the government is going to write a check to every descendant of anyone that was can part of the slavery program. So that means thousand dollars per child per year or just one shot. I write a check for thousand dollars for a child. I'm sure it's an extra tax yearly. But here's some of the other details. He says he doesn't know all have all the answers where the money's got. Exactly. He wants to get it started right now. Again, people might have time to wait my baby bonds plan, which would be putting a thousand dollars in the Bank accounts of every American child born and baby Vons every American child. Right. So that's. Nothing to do with race. Where are they going to get the money to give every child born in the United States a thousand dollars? Here's what else he said. He's upon income every year, you can get deposits count, the lowest income people get two thousand dollars with compounding interest. By the time of child is eighteen years old and lowest income kids. Yeah. Have upwards of fifty thousand dollars of wealth now. Okay. As long as no one can touch that money until you're twenty one years old, and there's the key. And we're talking about every child in America or the first clip there where he talked about race being a key component of this. I just talked about descendants of slavery. And how do you prove that we now we have a lot of mixed race right families and couples out there is all well and good. So as somebody who has a little dissolve a sudden empower twenty three and me to be the determining factor or well dot com has this work. And what if you had somebody that helped free the slaves? Oh, yes. What if I have a relative that died as a union soldier, right? My reparation or somebody that you know, maybe owned a plantation in hid them in in worked with the underground railroad. Oh, do I get ready for that? Well, it doesn't have all the answers yet. But where are you going to get the money? Okay. Just let's go back to thousands of baby bond a thousand dollars per baby. Okay. So I wanna have ten babies. Oh, yeah. So I get more money that way is this not another incentive to have more kids that. Oh, absolutely. Wouldn't you? Wow. Wow. I just don't know where you're going to get the money from. I mean, it sounds good on paper. But it's realistic. Not so much ready for another name running for president on the democratic side.

"But it is still a fantastic interview that I know you'll dig so now without any further ado, let's jump right onto the stage. The Los Angeles film school right after I introduced co writers Phil hay and Matt Manfreddy to chat about their latest film destroyer. In his home school. I figure the easiest place to store just to give a sense of everything with your background. He's just did you go to school. I don't wanna be where you overly trained. I did which was to find. He was rigorously chained back when they we're they only give you your graduation year with the enter because they would out two thirds of every discipline? I've talked about this so many times. I I think it's the craziest thing they kind of stopped it because what you think of that just doesn't tactic because it mean it made students compete against each other rather than allow for kind of the collaborative effort that a lot of schools growing promote created distortions screenplays. They had stopped doing that. But I got there and also the overhead for screenwriters low. So they can just you know, like them all out. I I liked it. I mean, I it was at the time. They were under a conservatory model is our which basically means just right any critiques. And so I was fortunate enough to not have job at that point end. So suspend those two years, it was just I was not another professional. But I was just right. That was night. Only thing I had to do for two years. So I got a lot. I did not go to film school per se, but I went to UC Irvine in fiction writing program. So he said if I'm living together, we're writing sweet place together. But I was at Neo issue. I was writing fiction as what else so we living. I mean, just as this is an Elliott movie and gets a job visa important, Irvine AFI. That's weird. Westwood was. Fairfax who started his first year of Westwood's second or eventually allow and. What are you hearing come into the picture? She I met Kearns Mary the director, and I married and we we met in at Sundance. She had her first movie girl fight that was their antennae. Shapiro wrote the music for destroyer and also our previous invitation, we went to college together and we've been friends since we were eighteen years old. And he he did move music for girl fight and just asked me to come with him, and let me crash on his flooring movies. I net car in there. Then several years later we. Has Republican flux that card launch direct in? So we kind of got to know each other through that that kind of insane journey and. And now, we're married, and we all three worked together as family operation. You know, we have you less serious invitation to that crazy rooftop screening. You know, it's been a few years now says the invitation, and I love it in a lot of people were still discovering view. What would you say looking back? Now you've had a distance. What would your biggest lesson have been from the invitation just for both of you? And if there's something that influenced your of habits moving forward or not if that's. Does. See for myself that we we invitation at written a lot of studio movies, and and that's a very different process process that we really also enjoy, but it's quite different from only making dependent movies like innovation destroyer together. And so I think for the three of us Kearns had a similar thing where she could making some studio movies really wanted to get back to make independent films edgy trade resources or control. And so we sort of these two movies. You know, I think it brought us really back to the heart of what we wanted to always do ending making a career in the movie business. What we had you know, been craving in. There's not really well aware grateful for vacuum gets make this movie because there's not a lot of movies that are really like get a get made these days. So I think for us invitation, it was the first step into really able to kind of fully.

I am Paul Scheer. Amy is a way a judging the Cairo film festival and the person who left that amazing introduction is anonymous did not leave a name. But thank you for that. That is a technically the winner of last week's listener challenge. So there was a really interesting thing happening this week on the boards and on Twitter, which was this idea that. A lot of characters on AFI films might be in cells. Now, if you don't know what an install is an insult someone who is involuntarily celibate, and even disintegrate venison roads that she says one of the great joys of unspoiled is not only getting to listen to the show, but actually watch Amy Nicholson in real time to do. So the af I list is jammed with movies about in sales. Now, I know there's a lot of critiques about this list. But this is a pretty fresh one. And I think a lot of people picked up on it like Tom spanks on the air will form he said, I was surprised that Stingl was labeled in and sell. I came here to see if anyone else picked up on this. I can't say an expert on the subject, but aren't in cells usually characterized by their contempt towards humanity. I mean, I feel like if anything stink go this huge heartening genuinely love both. Sophie and Nathan. Yeah. I I don't know how I feel about this. I do think like if you're talking about taxi driver, there is an element of being in cell there. I think there's probably. We're doing with a lot of films. About angry white men. And and I think we've debated this a lot. I don't think that Stingl falls into the insult category. I think that he is looking for love. Yes. He's a virgin. But I don't think he has contempt against humanity. I don't think he's railing against anything. I think he's more of, you know, calm this love triangle. He's the Duckie if you will Sophie's choice, and I don't know if Duckie's install then then maybe I was an in cell and high school to all right? Liz Brooke over right? So Sophie's choice doesn't belong on the top one hundred. I'm not saying it does or doesn't. But it certainly almost off the list as it is. And it's difficult to imagine. It's staying on the future lists which Meryl Streep movie does belong in the top one hundred. Well, that's an interesting question. I don't know if I'm like, a Meryl Streep expert, there's so many great Meryl Streep performances, and I think sometimes when you think about Meryl Streep you think about the performance not the film. That's. At least me saying that looking at this page in front of me right now. I'd also say adaptation would be an interesting film to be on this list. It's a, you know, a very interesting director really interesting way of telling a story. So maybe maybe it's I don't know. I don't know. But you know, what this actually brings me to something that one of our listeners. Philip Hawkins did which is a bracket of the film of the millennium. If NC double a bracket of the best films of the millennium, and there's voting and you can find this on the Facebook group, but it's kind of you know, pairing up Shaun of the dead verse inception and inglorious bastards versus no country for old men the dark Knight versus inside out. And I'm really curious to see how this kind of pulls together on the Facebook group. So if you want to weigh in on the film of the millennium. We will see they'll be one champion there. Inadaptation is of course, on this list adaptations against grand Budapest telling me, I say, my first gut would be adaptation we move to the second round. So. Get in on that. Thank you felt Hawkins. This brings us to our film this week, which of course is a Stanley Kubrick classic. Let's get into it. Nineteen seventy-one. The average incomes about ten thousand dollars a year, the fop disk and Email comes out in nineteen seventy-one. Also, the twenty-six amendment lowers the voting age to eighteen years old and United States, Walt Disney World theme park is opened. And Federal Express is started by Fred Smith. It is also the year that Stanley Kubrick releases a clockwork orange Amy who's in a clockwork, orange a clockwork orange. Well, it is written and directed by Stanley Kubrick based on the novel by Anthony Burgess that here at nineteen sixty two and the main star is Malcolm McDowell nineteen seventy-one was also the that. There are a lot of protests about clockwork orange a lot of knockoff crimes that people claimed were inspired by a clockwork orange movies banned in the United Kingdom. Right. I it is willingly withdrawn by Stanley Kubrick after people protest outside his house, hashtag protests work. Wow. Because there were people getting raped and people getting beaten up and criminal singing singing in there. Rain. Oh, so it really was directly affected by this movie. It wasn't. Okay. Wow. Yeah. Now, tell us a little bit about this movie. It's a little complicated. But I feel like we can kind of distill it. Yeah. And essence, it's the story of fifteen year old kid named Alex. Yes, doesn't look fifteen. Malcolm. Mcdowell doesn't look fifteen Stanley Kubrick would get very touchy about that. How disturbing would this movie be if he looked fifteen there, maybe better? This fifteen year old named Alex. He's irredeemable he's finally arrested and charged with murder, which he did commit. And then he voluntarily I would say goes into this behavioral modification training where he starts to associate music and violence and horror and sex with vomiting, and then the question is better off now than he was before who is the true villain. I mean, truly it's like the Pablo of dog experiment with a human being it's like instead of ringing a bell and making themselves
