Edward Norton Discusses His New Film 'Motherless Brooklyn'
"Everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie out now that I truly love called motherless Brooklyn which is written directed and starred my guest Edward Norton Great Devere then too long. It's been way too but I talk about long as long as I've known you which has has to be going on twenty years. We've been talking about mother. It was really you've been. That book came out. Jonathan Lethem's book came out and he said I'm going to do that. Yeah this is going to be. But it's finally here. Peter I told you I would and I did I did but you know I can't wait another twenty wanted to do it. But how do you feel now. Really good I when something's been rattling around your head for a long time it is it is nice to get it out. It's sort of like I relate. My character has to read syndrome and obsessive compulsive disorder and when he talks about having glass in the brain. And that's a little bit how this project was for me. It was like glass in my brain. I want. It was uncomfortable and I wanted to. I did want to get get it out but apart from that personal compulsion to see it through. I'm happy with the way it came out. Maybe maybe more than I usually am. Actually it's saying the things I wanted to say and I think maybe you commented on this. It's it's sort of. I don't think it would have had the resonance that that it has now ten years ago. Honestly We were talking about this before we started just the difficulty of course as he has commented on very eloquently. I think in his kind of elegy to the how difficult theatrical films have gotten how difficult it has gotten to release original theatrical films. It's it's always a struggle for filmmakers to make original Ville visions. It's always been you see the cast we had in this film. We have Bruce Willis and Willem Defoe and Alec Baldwin and Google about the Ron and Bobby Kennedy Volley in great great actors. But you still have to. You still have to sort of struggle to find the resources is you need to make it. And I wasn't and I didn't need them. Two hundred million easy. My I got all my actors working the free on my actors worked for nothing to help me get it made honestly but you still but you still have to still have to figure it out. Well there's so many things in terms of mother Louis Brooklyn about what you have to do even with a studio backing him. You have a movie that maybe they don't know what the title is. Maybe maybe they never read Jonathan's book it'd be they're saying what's it about right. I'll what is this and that money has to be poured into letting them know what it is. Ask because not presold been John Game. Yeah No to do the property those things and look in my case. I I was there saying look. I WanNa make a big old fashioned period epoch about New York in the vein of the Godfather or L. A. confidential confidential. or any any of these great old fashioned movie experiences I think demonstrably audiences really loved right when they're good. We all love of those films and and I wanted to mash it up a little bit with other another type of movie. I love which you also have a pure you know sort of the underdog the the forrest gump. The Rain Man That idea of a a hero. whose very unusual has an unusual condition edition? That you've never seen before that you feel empathy for and the empathy that you feel for him the the fact that you immediately. You're on his side. That's part of what that's what pulls you through. A murky. It takes is one of the nicest guys you've ever played. WELL HE IS I. I think he's well. It's funny and someone said to me you've done a lot of people with Conditions are afflictions. I said No. I've done a lot of people who are fating conditions or yeah like like primal fear baking the score with Deniro in American History X. There's no faking. He's he's just. He's angry mentally ill and the truth is this character. He's not mentally ill he. Just has he has terrip syndrome so people they call him freak show but he's he's smart and he's intelligent. He's he's susu sensitive. The great thing about watching this movie is that it takes awhile sometimes for you to say my brain isn't working like Lionel's right. Oh He's piecing together this puzzle in his own head his own synapses and we're trying to put a linear thing that isn't there. No Oh but I I actually the only thing that I just. I think that Agreeing in house district buys by a certain point story. I think when characters this goes back to like J D Salinger Holden caulfield and catcher in the Rye when sometimes when a character tells you his own story right from the start you you relate you feel the emotional hook and I think if you set that hook early with a character if in this case Lionel in a classic detective voice over where he tells you I have something wrong with me. I struggle with it. I I have friends. Who Understand? Me like Bruce Willis but not everybody does and it's it's tough. You know you start to go. Oh I inside this guy I understand him. You want him to do well. You don't want him to trip himself up. You're always reform. I I just think what you're doing you're saying I don't quite know how he's piecing it together doesn't tell you know and that goes to what you've done with Jonathan Lethem's book set in the late nineties but you send it back in time as through the fifty S. I don't think anybody ever knew what to read sets the well. That's what you just said is part of the reason we put it in the fifties the the the isolation the characters isolation not just in terms of other people being a little less sensitive calling him freak show But if you know that he doesn't even know what he has your even more sympathetic. It's it's it's even more isolating to not know what's wrong with you in some sense but the other thing was honestly Jonathan and I both really like those movies. The the the old fashioned atmospheric feeling of those noir films from that era. The novel motherless Brooklyn Brooklyn is very interior it's inside the characters head but obviously a film is a big a bigger canvas. You have you've got to create a landscape for people to look cat and it's great landscape. Yeah it's that whole fifties thing that's going on in New York and why. Why no is called called motherless Brooklyn Yeah you know why basically has nobody so no one looking for him? But he has Bruce Willis's character yes when a minutes boys so he he has something. And that's how this movie starts. It's about who killed my mentor. Who did this and then we get what to me? She has a real chinatown by. which is where's what's festering underneath this? It's not just who murdered character. What's going on? It's it's what's going on. Well you had the water in La. That was going on. You Know Chinatown chinatowns. Great because it's about La's original sin. It's not just about Out a mystery it's about the idea that La is built on crime. And that's and that's that's what I like about our foams. They they do. What you said is exactly right? It says hey they say hey yes. It's a certain mystery and a certain emotional relationship is driving why he's investigating but really what what this about is the more he he takes us into the shadow we realize there are things going on in what we call our democratic like Galateri in New York society that are violently antagonistic to everything. We say we believe in which we see through the out Baldwin Characters or Robert Moses type character master builder under a person that says I'm GonNa create the city to look like this and then cuts out anybody who's an outside anybody who is into one percenter right which which is what goes to the topicality. Yeah even now and was a racist t the total race. Yeah and I think that idea of the way that the way that we actually baked people talk about institutional racism but discrimination was literally baked into the Way New York was built into a modern city. They literally did do things like lower bridges to the new beaches. They overpasses they set them too. Low for buses is to clear them. Because they didn't want black and Latino minority citizens coming to the new public beaches so they literally limited access and people think that sounds like a conspiracy theory but it happened though it did happen and we see it and yet these are things that you have in your screenplay screenplay this book added to. Yes what was in the book right when you collaborate with somebody like Jonathan Right. WHO's a really terrific right? I really great writer. Is He with you on. I couldn't have done what I did on. This was bowled you could call it. Yeah but but he doesn't say what have you done. No no no no. I wouldn't do that without checking it out out with him. I I felt that I felt there was reasons to set it in the fifties. We talked about that. He liked that idea because he likes those films and I think he he knew is fill his book we had a certain Surreal Meta modernism. If you WANNA call it data it's really about the interior life of this character. He he wasn't so married to the plot per se. The plot didn't wasn't like the story of my family or the story of my city. It was it's a very Byzantine mazed. It's really an excuse to write the character in some sense. You know he also loves Raymond Chandler and you know those guys marlow at the detective. Active in Chandler with went through a couple of novels right so we kind of approached it like his great character going into another the next another another story in terms of taking a movie which you've described we've talked about it now and putting it on the screen. Do you worry about it reaching reaching an audience putting out kind of putting out work that you do that you you have a deep feeling for is always It's always got Certain emotional risk no matter how thick skin you get over the years no matter how many no matter how many you know. I've been through quite a few experiences like I'm getting a a nice honor from the camera. Image Festival in Poland this year. It's the Great Cinematography Festival right. And they sent me a rundown of the films they wanted to review in this thing. And it's amazing like at the top line of of those kinds of assessments of films. I've done that people think are really Definitive or something like that. You have like fight club. And he's always in there and the twenty fifth and American history x is always in there and none of those films did well.

"Of June fourth nine thousand nine hundred sixty eight Los Angeles Times photographer. Boris Yaro was relaxing at home after a long day at work. It was presidential.

I saw him slumped to the ground. His legs were splayed toward me and I saw the blood dripping out of his ear ear then you are shot the photo that haunts history Kennedy his legs limp staring blankly into nowhere with the young busboy crouched beside him propping up his head with stunned helpless look on his face that busboy Juan Romero died earlier this month from a heart attack at age sixty eight though in truth his heart broke that night as Kennedy lay dying in his hands like so many others in the late sixties Romero a seventeen year old Mexican can immigrant said he saw Kennedy as a uniting inspiring figure in a time of great tunnel just the day before Romero delivered room service service to Kennedy. He told story core about it. Describing how Kennedy was on the phone when he walked in you could tell when he was looking at you that that he's not looking through you. Romero said he's taking you into account and I remember walking out of there like I was ten feet tall after snapping the photo Yaro raced to a phone so he could alert his editor. He was ordered to the newsroom room immediately while he told reporters what he saw. Someone else rushed to develop the film euro cried and he saw the a photo for the rest of their lives both men the photographer in the busboy were traumatized by the moment that year nineteen in sixty eight was chaotic and deadly riots assassinations. The country were seemingly coming apart and euros photo. Ah a photo he came. Kate was living proof. He said Bobby Kennedy was going to be the knight in shining armor and he didn't get get a chance. The psychological damage was worse for Romero. Just before the shooting Romero offered offered his hand to Kennedy for congratulatory handshake among the hundreds of letters he received were ones blaming him for for Kennedy's death. He recalled the letter saying if he hadn't stopped to shake your hand. The Senator Would Have Been Alive Romero moved moved to Wyoming to start a new life still he couldn't escape that moment cried a lot he felt guilty and and in two thousand ten Romero traveled to Arlington National Cemetery to visit Kennedy's gravesite to apologize in person he had never owned a suit so he bought one for the occasion getting dressed up showing Kennedy respect saying he was sorry all of it brought back the way he felt when he first laid eyes on Kennedy while serving Him Room Service.

Facebook Alumni Startup - Real-Time Data Analytics Platform
"Read how a company called in Toronto recently released a new version of its big data analytics platform for behavioral discovery and analysis and essentially in Toronto can analyze trillions of raw Tom savings data points in just one to two seconds. And there's no need to work with the data scientists to extract or transform that day. An ordinary business. Users can ask question after question getting answers about their customer behavior. But in real time, this is where things get interesting because the platform was built by co founder and CTO Bobby Johnson who also headed up development of analytics tool at Facebook, including scuba many, many moons ago, so book elope and hold on tight. So I can beam your ears all the way back to the US. So we can speak with CTO. Bobby Johnson who's going to tell us all about inter on an big reveal recently about the world's most advanced platform for behavioral discovery and analysis. So massive warm. Welcome to the show, Bobby Kennedy tell the list as a little more about who you are. And what you do. Yeah. Sure. So my background is a used to work at Facebook. I was the head of infrastructure there from a few million users up to a billion. So did a lot of work on scaling there. And then a few years ago left to start in Toronto, which his company I'm working on now where we do behavioral discovery. And analytics, and what we mean by that is sort of taking what we call vendetta. So this is you know, anything that happens by the time stamps, so this could be a click or a swipe on website. It could be called a call center. Could be a transaction often. It's a mix of those things, and we pull that all together. And we're able to let you look at how people are behaving or how devices are caving. That data so things like what people do before they turn where people getting stuck in this on boarding flow. So things that have to do sequences of advanced rebel pull in is data's often. Very large were able to pull it in to the vet at massive scale. And then make those kinds of really viable business questions accessible to everybody. Not just data scientists not just people code. There's a visual interface where you can go explore through and find out, you know, how people are interacting with your product or service. Wow. What a great history of Atlanta's. There's not many paper, I would imagine. But could say they've scaled full gold from sculling one million to a billion us as lot. So going to ask let me tell me more about you'll bike story foam leading the development of analytics tools Facebook, including scuba, of course, which is Facebook's internal data analysis platform to go onto you'll tell him out and Theron, and the kind of problems that you sat too so feel clients. Yes. So it was I mean, we obviously learned a lot about. Out just for the mechanics of how you deal with data at the scale. How you make it fast? How you how you make it manageable? But the other thing that was really interesting that we learned along the way was is seeing how people actually use this data to solve light rail business problems in the thing that was neat about Facebook. Is that we really did have almost everybody in the company was able to to use data base their decisions on that. And so we got to see over the years, you know, how you know, mapping. And so when you have a business question, it usually starts out pretty vague. There's this thing I don't understand. I wanna get this number to go up. Right. Understand why this isn't working as well as it should in. So getting to see how you know going from those kind of questions into this is a specific sad of analytic questions like NASCAR or get my answer. And so we had you know by the time face, but we had more than half, the employees were active users of of Anna. Politic's tools. We learned a lot about how you make those things accessible so people can start with their rod questions narrow down to finding an answer to something that they can actually do something about, you know, I have a problem in this particular stage of of this process, or, you know, this group of people is working. So I need to change something about how I now I, you know, either, you know, message that something on our product. So it was a lot of new Chevaliers sitting sitting with people who add real pressing questions figuring out how could make the tool actually serve them. Not in Toronto also recently released a new version of its big data analytics platform for behavioral discovery and analysis. So can you tell me more about how it can analyze trillions of rule toll? I'm saving day points. It just one to two seconds. And also how this actually no need to work with the dia- Santus to extract or Trump's full not data it. So the thing about event data behavior is this data is really big. And it's one of the things feel a lot of a lot. Big data is really time series data because you know, rather than having, you know, if you have ten million users on your app, ten million things isn't a big number. But if those people are clicking thousand times a day that ends up being a really big number in. So it's. You know, real important we're able to ingest that all events in the you across it. Because the other thing he find with behavior is that you don't know beforehand. What's going to be interesting to you can't just sort of say, oh, I'm going to summarize this, you know, if I can count, you know, how many times people clicked on mobile app, but that's not useful. What I want to know is that when they went through these three steps it turned

"And welcome back to coast to coast Lee server with us as we talk about his work handsome, Johnny about the life of gangster. Johnny rozelle. Fidel Castro took over, but prior to a Batista, of course, was very friendly to the mob with casinos in Havana when Castro took over and fifty nine he shuts the casinos down in gets rid of the mob at what point did the mob feel as if they needed to get rid of Castro. Well, that's a complicated question. Because there there are there is evidence of other not very successful plots were simultaneously happening. Lansky may have been involved with one and some others, but the primary government directed plot. Came directly out of the White House. I'm sorry. When Castro took over, you know, we we if we remember the history US thought that I would be able to get away with cab because it was starting. The plot was starting under the Eisenhower administration. Wasn't it? Is an hour was totally furious with the idea that Castro was sitting there with this growing, the anti American government just off the shores of Florida, Richard Nixon became his point man and Nixon went to the CIA. This was turned over to Alan dollars into Richard missile at the top embezzle and entertained offers. The CIA was in you know, really in the middle of its craziest period. You know, they they were capable of any kind of of plot. You know, they were just doing trolling. Yeah. Just just do it. So a guy named Sheffield Edwards who was the security director came up with this idea that why don't we ask? Because of course, they didn't want to have their fingerprints on the assassination of Castro. So why don't we get the mob to do where they Castro too? Because as you say, George Lou Castro took away, their, you know, also, you know. Their their their money. And so they thought about this idea, and they decided to go for it see if they couldn't pay the mob to get rid of Castro for them and take take the blame and Edwards and the operational support guy. Jim o'connell? They went to their cutout guy. A man by the name of Robert Mayhew who ain't wasn't wasn't he involved with Howard Hughes? It was indeed. I mean, this comes full circle, and you know, and Johnny became involved with remained you and Howard us in the turnover of Las Vegas just a few years later. Right. Very incestuous and complicated. But at this time, they turn to Mayhew had done a lot of black bag jobs for the CIA. And they said, listen, here's a plot. Go find us again stir to kill Castro and Mayhew knew a few gangsters. He worked with all kinds of people in in in his assignments. And there was only one he considered that remotely, trustworthy, and that was Johnny and he gave Johnny col-. He met at the Brown derby in Hollywood. And you know, after after lunch and a few drinks, he said, I have something to ask you. It's a mission a request from the government and Johnny for all of his bad deeds, consider themselves, very patriotic this country, you know, when a lot of gangsters went into hiding during the war he actually joined the army, and so Mayhew explained it to him Johnny couldn't believe it. But you know, they began to discuss it. He liked the idea. Yeah. I mean, he didn't like Castro either, and mainly he wanted May- you to assure them that they really this was really for for the government that it was a high ups we're asking for this favor. And may you offered them hundred and fifty grand of CIA money in Johnny said, you're not going to pay me for this. I'm doing it. 'cause I owe this country and. You know, he never did take dime. And that was the beginning of probably one of the craziest adventures in the history of the CIA bizarre relationship. Absolutely. And it got more bizarre. I mean, Johnny because this is you there were certain rules and regulations things you simply couldn't do without getting signed off by the by the by the boss, you know. And he had a tell his story. Even though may you wanted him not to tell anyone except whoever they they used in the plot. But Johnny had to tell Sam giancana and to his great surprise Sam giancana said, Well, I I want it on this to you know. So now, they had a gang consisting of China's valley, and Sam giancana who was he was many things and one of them was very unstable. He wasn't a guy you wanted to pick for a delicate. Secret mission. But there was and they gathered together, and they began to meet the CIA liaison, Johnny Sam giancana. And eventually the operation was moved to Florida where the the anti-castro forces were were in great number the exile community, and they began this crazy plot to find an assassin to find a way of killing him the CIA when they decided the best way to find someone who could poison them, the CIA went to work, and in there, you know, weird science labs, and they came up with an all new poison that could be given tastelessly and so forth, and no one could would Castro would never know even poisoned and until two or three days later, you get very sick and Robin. Now was this before the bay of pigs. Well, this the first part of the. This mission was before and the idea was kill him. So that this. Underground the invasion would work, right invasion. So they beano Castro and everything would be chaos, and they take over very easily. Fortunately, everything went awry. Castro evaded, all the the the attempts. And in some cases, probably the the paid assassins, just took the money and ran and it became a comedy of errors and this bunch. Now also include Santo traffic Kante who was the head of the mob. I hear all these names and JFK's assassination Lee will get into that tonight to jeez. And you know, and so this group of business it band of assassins is sitting around hotel suites in Miami. They're going down to watch Frank Sinatra and the COPA room, and you know, and really not getting a lot of work done. And the whole thing became a debatable. And Johnny was furious. He really thought they had a serious mission here and serious purpose. And he's gangsters that he had. Unfortunately, found himself in collaboration with basically. A a bunch of. Yeah. They bought the whole thing. Yeah. And. To quickly add, you know, the takes came. It was a disaster. And. Cuban missile crisis came. Johnny. Washington. They decided, you know, this was a mess. They cancelled what they had started. But still they wanted it Bobby Kennedy and others high up still wanted to take a shot at this and Johnny found himself, you know, in phase two of his fascination plan. This time he became leapt up with a legendary CIA man named Bill Harvey who was considered the JAMES BOND of of CIA, although he looked Leslie JAMES BOND more like William Conrad in canon, and now Johnny and the CIA as top row Asian became the leaders of a new plot to assassinate Castro basically never gave up. Did they even though Castro outlived everybody? That's right. You know, they they formed a. Down in Florida where a lot of this resistance and subversive operation was happening. They were training snipers and training various rebels to to be infiltrated and Johnny myself took some of these Cuban rebel fighters across to Cuba from the Florida Keys under watch the armed patrols by Cuban navy boats, and it was a wild hairy thing. But meanwhile, the the White House got into a standoff with Russia. And so that we none of us blue each other, you know, off the planet. Right. They made a deal not to do anymore. You know shenanigans with Cuba. Except that Bobby Kennedy was still interested. But that's another story but Bill Harvey. When went to war with Bobby Kennedy, and basically got fired until Johnny, you know, this ain't happening. Yeah. Get out of here. Now, Bobby continues, however to go after the same mobsters who were part of the plot to kill Fidel Castro. He's going after them personally, he's getting Carlos Marcello dumped out of the country. They throw them in the woods somewhere in some other country. Traffic Conti can't stand him. I I've always believed that the assassination of John F Kennedy was based on trying to get Bobby to back off the mob. Yeah. You know, I think it's a a theory with a lot of possibilities. There are so many strings, and you know, the more you look at it to more Marcello looks good for some part of this. But you know, I think that. Those people who have tried to bring results in on this. I went through so much so many books so many transcripts, and I'll tell you the FBI had for nearly two years. Why all of this is happening had been trying to follow Janis every move. They they had his house bugged is phone taps on his car airport. He was part of the plot to kill Castro, the FBI, that's a that's a complicated one to answer because J Edgar Hoover was going nuts. He was finding little bits and pieces about something going on between the CIA and the mob thing we have to remember is the time line the period. Hoover hated to see I, you know, over was salt of the earth American or these college educated Ivy league easterners, and he really it was almost like the FBI was working for a different country than the CIA. So they never told each other anything, but Hoover was finding these little bits of maddening intriguing details. You know, there's a whole long story about gene kinda a forcing may Huda bug. The the hotel. Room of comedian Dan rolling because he thought he was he was seeing gene Khanna's mistress and he's making UCI bugging devices. And that got busted by the police and led to a lot of this becoming known to the FBI. So it was a real like complicated club. Giancana ends up getting killed in his house. Right. Gee, I mean, this was the beginning of the. I think so many things going on at the same time. The FBI had finally under the watch Bobby Kennedy who also didn't get along with Jaeger who were but put up with them. I guess what's that he put up with them? I guess. Yeah. Just barely. And he has finally begun against the law to bug the whole casino operation, Las Vegas. So they were finding out stuff that nobody had known before about the the mobs operation, but they couldn't use any of it. Because it wasn't a allowable in court. So they were chasing down GM comedy were going after the mob. You know Hoover. It had a big turnaround after the Appalachian fiasco in the fifties when he had avoided going after the mob, just pretended. It didn't exist. Well, now he turned around. Through embarrassment, and they were basically coming after them left and right along with Bobby Kennedy and the Justice so everything was falling apart Sam giancana got himself into trouble. He lost control of his temper over and over again. And so the big boys who didn't want any spotlight Joe batters, Tony Accardo, re a Paul Ricca the guys in the shadows. That took you know, where off with a capital b but they never went out and gave had fights the FBI. They weren't like John Gotti. They didn't want that kind of publicity. And so Sam giancana simultaneously in the middle of all of this was just seeing his career go down the tubes. And this eventually led to them getting rid of him. Meanwhile, of course, JFK is having an affair with giancana's girlfriend was a mess. We'll talk more about all of this Lee who put it together and take phone calls next on coast to coast AL find out more about tonight's guest. Log on to coast to coast AM dot com. Coast to coast.

Right, right. Candidate does. That's the only thing that gets people excited. You know, they don't get excited about just the fact that you're a candidate you have to compare yourself to to somebody who is successful in there is so yes, so those are the two ones, but the third one is Michael Bloomberg Michael Bloomberg was on the view yesterday.

And because here's where I think he actually could do something as a democrat. If you're somebody who wants to vote that way. He may be able to bring both sides together because he was also Republican at one time he is like the reverse Trump.
