"Good shit okay. yeah what else. What else can i really say. So i guess another similarity with pulp fiction is so apart from just. The contrast of everything is like in the grand scheme of things for this being a hundred and seven minute movie or whatever it is. There isn't like there isn't a shitload of character development. There's some but it's not like a lot. There's not like very very major changes it's more about. It's more dialogue driven. It's more like seen driven than the overall bigger narrative like the big story in this movie is relatively simple right if you think about it. And so is it in pulp fiction like the plot itself doesn't have extremely many like surprising depths or whatnot but it's in the scenes and that was another thing that we disagreed over. Because she really. I personally also really liked character development in stories and movies. And we've talked about this with video games. That i care more about the story than i care about the graphics yada yada but i really liked this movie despite not having that huge character development just because i like the style of the scenes but if they miss you. This movie doesn't have a lot for you right. I think it's kind of a hit or miss movie. Where if you don't like the style of in it for you right right like others way can be like okay if you don't like the humor in this movie and you don't like the type of scene design that the absurdity. What does it half for you right. In total disagreement over how good this movie we should give it a two out of five. So the worst. I think like we talked about the fact that a lot of people are very into actiony stuff in movies like this. The most important for them. And you're talking about the dialogue being most important. This is like the biggest contrast here. There's very little action. Like this is why i said turn on subtitles. Even if you understand the language. Because i i watched some i use some sort literally everything i watch because i miss dialogue even if i it's the only language used because the dialogue for me is just so important. This movie like without the dial is absolute garbage right. The dialogue makes this for me like one of the best movies. Ever so cool. I would give it. I would give it a nine out of ten. Wow and she gives it a two out of five like and ten. I don't think so. I think it would be a three or two out of ten as well. What does that have. That doesn't translate three out of ten on my call to make. I think it was a small to was the impression i got. She basically she watched it for my sake. And even though i said you don't have to watch stilted so. That was nice. I appreciate that. That's fair enough. Yeah not not a movie for everyone right. She wrote three out of ten. Of course so just just the throw it out there rotten. Tim let let's just finish with what rotten tomatoes gives the great movie in bruges. Because when i go to like imdb and all these other sites the medicare whatever the hell they call that.

"It was guard. I don't know if this is how it should be changed. Just i i. I found it to be aware design and like the the the fact that two heroes just fight each other one v one in the middle and nobody can do anything to them and you just watch. Just very strange to me really. Actually i know. I know it's ingred. Yeah so you buy the sceptre and two thirds of the time you hate it because you want to do all one and then your team can't kill them and then the team gets their entitlements and it's a fight like just. I don't know i like that. Others can participate at least even if their damages reduced. They can be a part of the dual. No but maybe sceptres so weak. Now that you don't buy it so maybe just played in the dope though. What do you think if the for dual is just anytime anybody in the radius attacks dual the buildings as what is absolutely terrible. Okay next checking. That was a lot of that was my one of my favorite ones in the mud. By the way it was really funny. A steeler i want to talk about feast. Now does max. Hp as damage again. This heroes back. He's back and open wounds. Which is the shard. Also applies to percents max targets. Hp and damage for each hit. That's fucking awesome. This heralding alad. Heroes owns exactly anybody that hits target with open with to maximize this hero. Owns by the way. Okay i know. I suck at the game only like ancient three now garbage dropped from divine but i actually used aganist syndrome. It is hilarious. Holy shit this item is so funny. That playing against an enigma. All they wanna do is just jump in you or jump in black hole and you're able to cancel their shit with an epistle blais. Which now sucks now so. I guess you can't really do that but you just jump inside and they can't do anything you know how funny that is. God it gets like what does it for hits off. I believe in the time span. It's it's a good sceptre pros are going to get it but it's fun at the very least i think they're gonna get it. If life steeler becomes a thing which it looks like he will because it actually has a lot of really cool uses. The so yeah. I think i've probably back off this. That hero was trash last trash. Let's be honest here. It was super bad and now it might be getting pretty good. So he has amazing attack speed now and now he finally gets his damage. Back gets the best of both worlds pretty much. I mean the damage isn't as much as it used to be but it's still a good amount. It very noticeable. So i'm happy next lion chard. I want to mention this because it's first of all you fucking hate it. Which is hilarious. Monitoring. god no actually not really it got buffed on level one in terms of cool down which is when it annoys you the most probably is when lions have it early by can break it a little bit easier and it has a bit longer cooled on later levels but i was actually surprised.

"I said i enjoyed this movie. I thought it really well done. And when i found out that it was the same director. Three billboards. I was like okay. Well he he knows his craft. He knows how to make a movie definitely and seeing that. I didn't remember that this was nominated for stuff. Like i'd heard it. And like. I said i didn't even remember watching it so i i can see all the praise for this movie and and everything else. It was just good. I'm glad that you brought it up. When i was on your show. Thanks man whereas like got me to watch it again. Do you think you had watched the first time you definitely had watched it or you know i thought i had seen it before and in my mind i thought i had seen it and i thought i didn't like it. Ah when i was watching it. Like i didn't really remember anything and i'm like i don't see how i could not like this movie i. I think it's hilarious. I was laughing out loud a few times. it's funny as well. we should let the lazar. it's hilarious. It's a black comedy it is it is and it's there's a lot of the humor that's very subtle because it's like sarcastic comments on the show this just. What he said is hilarious. It's not like the slapstick type of comedy. It's very very subtle comedy. But it's it's funny and smartly written. If you don't like the bombs in the sea bombs you weren't like this film watch it with your kids around watch it any anything else on in bruised that you'd like to talk about. I was thinking about it just before while we were chatting i just think it was just a a really well written film and like you said it made me laugh. Made me didn't make me cry. And i was just captivated again but i don't know if i love as much as a first time i watched it. I think the first time. I watched a loved it more. Did you feel for raise hitman character like did you feel bad for him i did. I did feel bad for him. But i felt so bad for can see really put himself out for ri- think ri- appreciates things that people do for him. He sat type guy. You know his he he just kind of has that demeanor about him like Like you could just tell. From the beginning he getting sent to bruges after what he did and then he he just wasn't grateful for the way doesn't appreciate and ken just trying to help him out exactly and then died by the hand of his sword. In a sense you are correct. I will tell you haven't seen in peru's to definitely watch that If it's one of those it's ever been on your radar like you know. Maybe i should check it out. Definitely do definitely check it out and watch the directors other movies. If you haven't seen through three billboards that's highly recommended. Ben you're from the travel man podcasts..

"They caught twenty four wins. Apparently to director martin mcdonagh. I didn't realize because i looked up. I didn't realize he did the three billboards outside ebbing missouri. I was brilliant fantastic movie. He also directed one called seven psychopaths. Which i haven't seen those. It's always been on a list of like. I've heard this movie. I wanna see it. But i i have not seen it so i'm sure that would be good. Yeah a question this. This movie is set around christmas. Yeah it is. They don't really play up the christmas. Tell a little towards the end or when you know. Harry is going after him and you know and they're going up into a bell. Is that what it is. They're going up into a belltower that they joke about the how tight it is going going up and tell them people they probably should go up there. The american yeah the americans and that was a great line. Would you consider this a type of a christmas movie or a movie. You would watch during christmas season just because it. It's set during that time. I know some people do. Nah like it's always a debate of his diehard a christmas movie or not set during christmas yes that is a crystal. That's a christmas movie. That's a beautiful christmas v. i think it's a christmas movie. I just think it's it's not really a a lot of christmas footage. Though it's not like they really play it up much telling you say a little bit like i said until the end when they're they. I think there's a comment of like the people there and like things closing. I think it's the guy who was it like the desk guy at the at the bell tower who all yes let them in. Yes and then he gets beaten up in the end everyone he does. I just knew he had a coming. That guy and this movie is kind of. it's not super violent but when there is violence it is. It is pretty extreme. It's in you win. They get the get the violence in their episode. Like i said i. I didn't remember the film. And when i'm watching it when you find out why they're on the run. What happened with ray and he ends up. You know his hit. He ends up killing the person but a child gets hit. Yeah accidentally through that. I was like kind of a little surprise of like oh. I wasn't expecting that to happen. I'm also amazed at a shocked him so much because he's a hit man. He's not really supposed to be shocked by death but do they set up like it. Has he been a hitman for a long time or is this like is okay. That's now so i one i shot so that one. I could see how it would surprise him. Because i got my first hit. Oh i killed the kid to like. I could see that surprised him but obviously And then when they set it up later and they meet the little person who is the actor that they they befriend a little bit. Yeah i do. But they're not really that friendly. Yeah they're they are but they aren't. Yeah and he's acting in a movie in bruges and he's they make him play a child in the movie and then they set it up where harry's after him and he ends up shooting him but ends up hitting this guy who is dressed as a child so.

"What what is it that really like appealed to you that you like you wash it. And you're like oh this. I love this movie. This movie odd for me. It's brewed the architecture brutish. It's beautiful bruises. I mean they made a point to sit. This film in beautifully built city. You know with gothic buildings and so forth so i think they honestly meant to film in a in a beautiful city. 'cause that's why one of the lines that i think right fine says he says it's like a fairytale. Yeah he does. And that's one of the one of the main reasons why they feel their. And that's also why i like it. Plus i love carl colin farrell except for one film did which films that. It's the one. When you've transformed into an animal the lobster. I have not the lobster. It was terrible. I got up to about three quarters of the way through the film. And then kinda turned off in a justin. He loves that movie. He tells me i have to see it now like i said i didn't remember ever seeing this movie like i think i've seen it but i don't remember so getting to do this and we're watching it. I was like the big thing. I love the humor in it That's amazing true. Love brendan gleeson. Just wants to see the sights and wants to go out and enjoy the city. Yeah that's true and colin. Farrell is just like bruges is like a crap hole. I don't wanna go out. Why why does anybody wanna come here. Why do you want to go out there. And it's like this running joke through the whole the whole film. yeah well. that's exactly what they talk about. Yeah i think even ray fines make some comment like they they make it seem like bruges as this like terrible place to go to but then it's not this terrible to absolately not i mean it's a it's a fantastic place to visit but like the whole back and forth between kane and rai is just fantastic. It's fantastic screenwriting. That's what it is good. Chemistry is great great chemistry with each other so they they were easily like you can tell when it chemistry is good because one. Oh deliver a line and it's like this quick back and it's like that works. Yeah abso chemistry's off you're like well. It's good writing but no they didn't quite hit it out archer. I made so many nurses crazy but like all words on a of paper like this three pages ear off just quotes or things. People said that just made me laugh and just things like bruges at night is the is unbelievably dock and moody. And i just things like that. Just that's another reason. Why i think the film works so well is because it also has atmosphere at night. It's very moody very dock bit creepy and just it's it's a really good place to shoot. I think but. I know this movie was very well received when it came out it was nominated for golden globe. That's right call him. Farrell one golden globe for this film. He and brendan gleeson. Were both nominated. He won yeah. that's true..

"Everybody is brad community with another bonus episode. I am not joined by the centimeters. I'm not joined by justin. I am joined by ben from the travel man podcast to talk the two thousand eight movie in bruges. He doing ben. Hey may i'm good. I can't wait to talk about embarrassed. This is a movie. i. I've been on your podcast. Travel man podcasts. We talked travel movies. And this is one that came up and i was like i think i've seen it but i don't remember and i'm not sure if i liked it anything that i did not recall the movie at all so as i was doing these bonus i was like. Hey have we do this movie. Because i know you love it and i'm like i don't remember it so i will. I'll watch it again just to see if something sparks in me. What did you think. I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the movie i did crew the ending. I had some issues with the ending. But we'll we'll get there when as we as we kinda talk our way through now. This is a movie that you'd love. You'd love this movie this so this is yeah. And what is it the you love. Did you get to see this in the theater when it was released. Originally i didn't see it in the cinema. I saw it. I probably just like anyone else on on dvd. I remember saying it or remembering seeing it in the cinema yet definitely dvd. And it's funny. I still have the dvd or a copied version. Because i don't have the original. I thought i had the original. I looked everywhere. My house for the original of in birsh darna but i call. That is in my car. Dvd player and accidentally sometimes. I hit the dvd player. On the car. And up comes in bruges while i'm driving guy hall. That's that's good. So what is it about this movie. That really got you that you love about it. You know. I think because it is in bruges. Yeah i've gained to bruges myself. And i was there probably about a good fifteen years ago and i just really love the city and then i love the play on with actors between rai and ken who a two of the main actors. Okay in for those. That don't know what this movie is. It is it's two hitmen where one of them accidentally kills a child so their boss sends them to bruges to kind of like lay low for a while. Yes in bruised. There's a lot of jokes about. Where's bruce and then how this place sucks and everything else so which it does..
Team Secret Cleans Up At Esports Awards
"Team secret for the e sports awards that i did not watch at all They one team of the year. They won player of the year which was nisha and coach of the year. Which is hain. is that all correct syndrome. Correct what do you think of that. So teamster again no. Ti this year and other other games have had the kind of their big tournaments some of them at least league for example but secret essentially winning the last. If you wanna take out the last few weeks has been seven plus money. I wanna say eight events in a row. Yeah seven months. They want everything just winning. Literally everything would you. I mean obviously our daughter bubble. So we're gonna agree right. The doda words everything. i would agree with. I don't know if i would put nietzsche's player of the year. I think it's hard to pick one. Yeah but he would definitely be one other candidates right. So i mean as it always is with these multi game award shows right. It's easy for us to say that these are great choices because we don't follow the other games that are part of it nearly as much to be honest with you. I don't even know which games are eligible to win in the sports category. If it's dodo leagues he has go rainbows. Six call of duty. Like i don't know what games are included in this is. It's hard to imagine another team in any game being as dominant the secret where this year. I think that's fair to say like you need to basically when everything right and not only that but the competition needs to be tougher which is unlikely once again because of corona because you know arguably secret even had a really tough region to play and while this was happening wasn't like it was just free easy wins because the region was week or something still tons of teams so it's super impressive I'm happy coaches got a bit more recognition so gretz to heen as well. I think he's really elevated this team to the next level they just started owning after he joined. I feel like it made a pretty big difference at least down the stretch Ceo good stuff. The thing about these awards shows though is. I don't know how much stock to put in the general. It's always cool for the teams to get recognition like this But i wish maybe it was a little bit more transparent a little more defiant. How we're going to segue into this next kind of mini topic of what do you think of award shows for e. sports in general because from my perspective i'm used to watching the oscars. I don't really watch a lot of other award shows at all but the oscars. I watch every single year. It's an event you know it's fun to watch. Even if i hate all of the movies which is sometimes the case that they just pick like the criteria just doesn't make sense to me sometimes like these artsy fartsy like movies will sometimes win for no reason. According to me but again like what criteria are they using. I don't know maybe you just don't have any taste. No that's definitely. I love in bruges. It's a great movie. Don't try to get out obligation. But what do you think from east perspective because when you look at the movies just as you know. Let's just do a one to one here. It's pretty clear. Even without knowing the exact criteria it's movies of this category but for east. There's just it feels like it's not as black and white. There's just so many different games. What is even considered an e sport. Technically speaking like. I don't even know the answer that question. That's the thing i mean. I guess the analogy of the comparison is really good though because in movies. There's also like it's super subjective. Right like what do you consider. A good movie is very different. From one person to the next head would be considered true. I suppose what it's defined as an eastport is a game that yeah but how many how big of a following doesn't need to have how significant to the price does need to be if i host a tournament in prague for one hundred bucks on eastport best escort because then then a lot of things could have won but now i i don't know what the criteria is and i think that's what we're probably agreeing on right now is that Maybe maybe are transparent about it. I just haven't seen it. I'm not saying that's not the case But yeah. I don't even know what sport is because like you said if it's just money than short that's anything could be in eastport if it needs to be x. amount of player base and have tournaments consistently running like whatever the case may be but either way. I like the idea of it. The fact that this is. I believe the fifth year in a row that their continued to do it is cool people show up to the event. There were ranked tuxes. They're trying to make it. That's where i don't like it. Actually they're trying to make it to. I don't know if mainstream is the right word but they're just trying too hard to copy everybody else like just let people show up in fucking sweatpants like were gamers man. Nobody wants to wear a goddamn suit. Unless you're a fucking psychopath syndrome okay. Being honest a lot of people do like dressing up on occasion. I think they don't like having to wear a uniform. It's like that all the time but for special occasions i think people like to do something extra like but honestly now that you it. I think it would be super cool if our award shows had people show up and team jerseys of their favorite team instead of in tuxes right. I think it'd be cool

"No i. I think it makes a lot of sense. I'm seeing a couple of people in chat and that's also what we've talked about at home here. We've talked about getting a ps five for future games. But also for the demon's souls remake but if you're biggest draw for a lot of people to buy the concerts to play remake than yeah right like it's not by the way that remake looks amazing and the game is probably amazing to. It's one of the dark souls series games will it's the predecessor to dark souls. It's the first one really but not everybody first of all likes that kind of game and we need to remember that in our community. Let's let's say probably the average player that We interact with or read from a here from is probably more hardcore than the average player in general right 'cause we like if we hear about it from our from read it or if we hear about it on our podcast or whatever. The average player sits down place for an hour and then does something else right. Are they going to pick up. A ps five demon souls probably not. I think the majority of people will pick up a ps five because it's ps five. And then it's a big big plus if there is a a new title that sounds fun and amazing to play. But you get like an extra little. I want to say a niche segment because you have demon. Souls is a remake right. And i'm one of those people that's excited about it but i'm not going to pretend that that's a really big game. Are you going to buy the. Ps yeah. we're going to get one. Oh i don't know when exactly we're able to get one but we christmas present. You know i believe in bruges. Actually the ps. Very well. every chris with all the beautiful harbor. That's inside that you know. I will get a ps five on the spot. I will do everything. I can to get a ps five. If it comes with the game has one of the flagship titles boy right away man. So.
"Instead of being paid to glorify the church and nobility like so much of Europe, the art in the low countries was paid for by the wealth of the Protestant merchant class are guides are Nico Febrile who lives near Bruges in West Flanders and Jodi angles door than she lives in Harlem North Holland? Nicole Yoda. Thanks for being here. Thank you. Thank you for having us. So from your perspective as a guide in the Netherlands ca you see that divide in the art world? Well, of course, it's a lot about the culture of country and like you said, our culture is all about brought stations and we had thorough formation and that are really created a big difference between some art in other countries in us. So we have very basic churches. They're all stripped down from older statues but also are monster pieces re rarely. See. Any Christian. Seems but we always have the Merchan's and because we had a Dutch republic very soon after. Yeah. So that is of you. If you see a bread of his biblical theme, it'll be from the Bible but it won't be from some Pope or something like that. Yes. If you think about you, you mentioned the reformation you have a huge church on the main square in Harlem that was a Catholic Church and it was completely painted all the pillars were painted and everything now when you go in yeah. Washed away whitewashed. Yes. Whitewashed. Yeah So a reformation came we had iconoclast where all the distance took it down and the art was little gone, and how do you recognize what the Protestants really brought into the churches was music and that is how they really lived up churches. So in Harlem, you have this giant organ. which more than five thousand pipes you can still go in and listen to it every Thursday In the summer periods. Then you have a concert for free you can visit and you can hear his Oregon play you can just. How old's organised, we've come so a ten year old Mozart played in this. So it's a it's a very different experience and it's very beautiful. So maybe four or five hundred years ago it was Catholic and then you have the reformation it becomes Protestant partisans come in there and they were kind of sort of kind of mean her. Very extreme. Throughout. All the statues they busted lot of the windows they painted everything white and they put up this amazing organ that goes it's his tallest building. It goes way to the top of those arches. Wild, it is wild and that's something that when you know the story behind, it makes a little more sense when you have a good information, know every Thursday there's a free concert Nico when you think about the Great Dutch painters who comes to mind. Of course, he think about people like don't finance house to meet. My personal is Yon Stein. Johnston because he has these scenes of just people having fun at home and it's sometimes a bit double if what he wants to say with paintings. inning. Is it the warning that you shouldn't be so? Joyful maybe in life. Or they're just fun to watch because there is there's a lot of folk way stem. Yeah. It's like I'm like don't be wasteful or if you gossip things bad things will happen or there's all these little little lessons about life but not really preaching from the Church nobody you could interpret it that way and people could hang it in their houses and say, this is what we shouldn't be doing. Right but I look at them as okay. They're having fun to me. It's a little intimate look at life for hundred years ago or whenever he owns Dean was painting, but that's a good name to. Note Yawn Seen S. T. E. N. S. these when I go to a gallery in the Netherlands I, see a lot of small paintings by a lot of people whose names I don't know rather than a few big paintings by people who are superstars and highly paid, and you got to think it's a different sort of clientele. If you're painting a King or some bishop, you can paint something big and really expensive. But in the Netherlands when they got rid of the king and they got rid of the pope, they got to have the open market business people for their clientele and it needs to be affordable. So you have small appreciate art. Or. Not Actually N- definitely. But like you said it would be anonymous or from the same workshop or around that's what you would read. You see the values of the day there I, mean, above the dining room table, you might have a still life. Yes. Still lifes is not a personal favourite, but that's something that you will find a lot. Would you see in still life because of fruits, baskets, fish 'cause it's the Netherlands. So they would have a love of fish in there as well. Easy to catch
Chris Cuomo on Covid-19 Recovery

Because I've been reading stories about young people who had really no pre existing illness or anything and them getting really sick. Chris and even dying now. Am I going to share that with you on television? You know as you're dealing with this no I'm not now. I don't think that that's not being honest. I think it's it's it's modulating how I present things a little bit but I gotTa tell you I was. I was worried about you and there were times when you had these declines in your in your nights were terrible and your pulse symmetry your oxygenation was a little lower than I would have liked and I knew that you couldn't necessarily get to the hospital right away so I was worried and I guess the question is were you.

The Five Most Important Movies at Sundance
"The game we made up is essentially the five bio-pics you meet in heaven so we tried to find the five different kinds of stories that are told in the biopic format. Thought it was pretty fun. I think it's useful to play a game like that at Sundance because there are a lot of homes on not all of them are great in fact some of them are great but when one is good it can be a kind of transformative experience and they usually come in a in a particular kind of package. Now when you think of of a sundance movie what do you think of. I think of a quiet often heartwarming family or rip character-driven dramas with maybe a little bit of quirkiness added to them. That is definitely at least one of the Kennedy talking about this episode also documentaries that's the other one lots and lots of documentaries so she should we dive right in. Okay let's dive right in the first and the most classical example of the sundance movie is exactly what you're describing. It's essentially the family family drama. The sometimes lighthearted sometimes deadly serious as we go through these we'll talk about Some previous examples of films that have played at Sundance that fit this rubric. So when you think of this movie more severe example of it might be winter's bone or fruitvale station or affliction more lighthearted example might be big night a genre fight example might be like take shelter So these movies I think Are the most derided of the Sundance archetype. That's true I was trying not to be dismissive when I was describing off the top of my head but as soon as you say Sundance movie there is just a as soon as you're categorizing categorizing rising things in. You're being unfair to the things which I guess we're going to be unfair to every single move. We talked about to extend. This is a podcast and we need buckets. We need segments. We need to push the conversational says. I wasn't totally totally trying to be dismissive of the family drama. There are good ones. There are bad ones. That's a fact You and I had the good fortune. I think this year to see one of the best movies at the festival and one that falls pretty squarely into this framework. So the movie's called minority We just got out of our screening of minority. What was your takeaway from this film? This is a story about out a Korean American family who emigrates to Arkansas in the eighties and there is a little kid in this movie movie that just absolutely ripped my heart out and and all the performances did and I thought that it is. It's the best case version of this because it's definitely moves you but it's also funny as you said right before we started recording. It's beautifully shot. Well written it smart and not to truly if that makes any does it's an eight twenty four or movie written and directed by a man namely Chung and he has an interesting gracefulness with what what appears to be his own story. I actually don't know anything about where the story comes from but when we were discussing earlier we identified that. There is an incredible level of specificity in the story. In the setting in Arkansas in a family trying to create a new life for themselves a new state and a new country trying to figure out how to stay married trying to figure out how to be good parents trying to figure out how to be good. Children had to be good grandchildren. It's a very complex. WCHS portrait of a family living in close quarters. Not Totally. Sure if they're going to be able to go forward with their lives in the way that they wanted to and all that stuff I still. I'm kind of does a disservice to the movie because that just sounds like Sundance Hokum And I think the movies a little bit more special than that now. Are We experiencing the festival high on a movie perhaps. Perhaps it's possible but as I was watching it I think you'll probably see a lot of comparisons to the farewell about this movie as the year goes on and not just because it's from an Asian and filmmaker but because it's a particularly a story about three generations and how three generations interact with each other and some of the confusion that happens when one culture collides with another culture in place that they don't fully understand the farewell. It's obviously Luang main character. Visiting China Grandmother. This film is a Korean American family moving into a rural place. The thing I liked about it the most is that it doesn't apply the usual tricks that you would think a movie movie like this about a non white family. Moving into the south in the eighties. Might incorporate a little bit more subtle and sophisticated when I heard the word Reagan Reagan early on in the film. I got a little nervous. And there is a lot of thoughtfulness about the socioeconomic aspect of the story. But it's not there. No burning crosses in this movie there is no. You know vindictive vitriolic language about the family. It is really just a family story which I was kind of relieved about honestly it's really insular and it's explores the relationships between between all of the members of the family pretty specifically and individually and but and that's enough that kind of fills up the movie. Yes so since. We've you've never been here before. I kinda wanted to talk about a movie like this. I think this movie might fit into another category and other sort of bucket. We've created here but I've never been able to witness in real time. I am the life cycle of film. That May Be in the consciousness for the next twelve months and to be on the ground floor when that thing happens did you have that sense when you're watching this or did you just feel like well. I've been seeing a lot of movies this week and I'm doing my best to take stock of all of them. I think it was the ladder with their recognition that I thought this was a very good film in one of the best films. I've seen this week. I'm I'm trying to protect against festival buys. I don't I don't know. Do you feel like so. You need to to start some festival buzz right here. I don't think I'm capable of such a thing. I need to know my own power which is minimal nor do I and I think I'm more I have never been to sundance either and I'm treating it more as what you said. It's interesting to watch it happen. And I'll be curious to see how other people respond to it and what it is like to watch it in the screening leaning room whenever people get to see at. Were you know in a movie theater or at home. I don't have a sense. Totally of how those things translate yet and yeah I don't either. I mean it's the sort of film that You know on. Its face. It Star Steven Jahn who obviously had great success actually not utterly dissimilar story burning in two thousand eighteen. There are some kind of thematic and visual references. That kind of match interesting double feature. I just don't know a lot of the Casas. Very Unknown Hania replays his his wife. Stephen's wife who you know. They're the sort of the lead couple in the family. And we'll patent plays a minim. Paul who is is a local aid a spiritual man who works with the family. He's giving what I would describe it as a very sundance. He performance he's anti character is sundance character. Maybe ripped from real life hard to say but this movie is like sort of very quiet and subtle and Paul is not not the most subtle. You're in the world. I don't think Paul will be competing for any awards but Stephen. I don't know he's really turned himself into quite a quite great leading actor. I will say I already mentioned the kid at this is an all time great kid performance and we were talking about after seeing the movie like. How do you get six year old to do what the six year old does? And I don't have the answers to that. I hope to discover them at some point. But we'll say really good kid. Performance goes a long way. It's true in people really love to see a cute kid up on the screen. Uh Ribbon hearts out yeah. He's like a charm vector and an empathy machine. You know that every time he's not screen you're looking at that. I really just feel for that so we didn't attend this party. Apparently he was here at Sundance. Walking the carpets at cowboy outfit. Yes big big park city energy from seven year old Allen Kim. We look forward to more things from him in the future. Go to the next kind of category. Yes okay so I. I've described this as the adult oriented comedy. Now I think that also sounds a little bit dirty like like not not not scatalogical your sexually dirty but just sort of like corny. I'm not sure that adult oriented in comedy is something that you want go together like I said as soon as we're applying larger categories to these things that invokes branding evokes marketing. It invokes all of the things. That aren't a work of art so so I think that's why we feel the way we feel but also this is how the world works and it's definitely help I've gasworks keep going so I would say some of the movies that fall into this. Category are among our favorite movies so four four weddings and a funeral plate sundance many years ago. John Have you seen for weddings and a funeral. I've seen thirty eight minutes of it. What is why do you do this to me is well? It's just the film that I started to watch movies. I watched the whole movie well. This isn't Chris Ryan. I watched the Irishman on three consecutive nights. Nonsense think of it like this life life is one big screening okay more in a continuous stream viewership and happy with you. One day I'll get to the conclusion of four weddings and a few I wasn't going to post host. The picture of you tweeting on the shuttle earlier but now I'm going to is a threat. I want people to note that for the record. Another example of this is significantly different from four weddings and a funeral. The movie like in Bruges which you know well before Martin mcdonagh was being canceled for three billboards outside ebbing Missouri. He was writing really nasty. hilarious assassin in comedies. I hope he gets back to this style very soon because I love that movie very much the next two though I think are more closely associated with a kind of tree. Cly Sundance Story. Now these movies are both huge hits and are kind of emblematic of something and I will admit when I saw them for the first time I was like I liked this movie a lot. The two thousand wild different time very different time the two movies. I'm talking about our five hundred days of summer. But you may recall is the so additional Joseph Gordon Levitt Rom COM com.
