Introducing the Movie Director Game with Sam Esmail
"We have a special sort of conversation. Here we're joined by Mister Robot. Creator the Creator of the film comet The director of Amazon's homecoming. Yes Sam. Esmail saying what's up. Hello how are you? I'm so excited to be here. I'm such a fan. Oh that's very sam. You wanted to play a game with us. I did now. I want to know why you wanted to play that game with us and I also want you to explain the game. Well explaining it okay. I'll let me start by saying I'm a huge film. Learn as I think anybody who listens to the watch probably already gust. And I've always played this game with all my film nerd fans and so I figured one when I started listening to your podcasts. Which obsessed with a huge fan of I figured especially with Amanda Sort of counterpoint? To talk to your thinking Shawn's like I just thought this'll be a fun game to play the game. Basically and again. This is sorry for listeners. Who are not going to be in on this because it's so inside. It's not even that insight. It's but it's it's really not OK okay. I won't apologize here. We go is a good game in and you deserve it. It's the best director per decade and the best director who die who had their debut. That decade does that make sense. Did I explain this? Should we use an example to help people understand it? What's an example that we won't? Won't you trample on the choices that we've made here? Well we look at this decade. We had we had like a number of actually great film. Directors made their debut Jordan. Peele with get ou- Greta Gerwig with Lady Bird Vince Gilligan Man. This favorite with El Camino until nineteen many wonderful. Thanks well actually. Gertler made no thanks. But it's it's it's it's it's. It's good to bring up Vince. As an example because he actually that was his feature directing debut which is all coming up. Now the thing is it's not necessarily not saying what's the best directorial debut? Just the director that we appreciate. The most made that debut made their debut in that decade so I think that there's a couple of semantic complications around now and you know as well as I do that there are student films. Their short film features so. Let's lay the groundwork. Because Vince directed episodes of Britain. He directed the pilot breaking bug which I think was in the prior decade but we're talking feature directorial debut so that seems easy to Parse. It's not as easy to Parse as it seems. Now tell me why well. Are you talking about dual are GonNa be Spielberg is is a particularly complex example? Because of nine or you're talking about nine gallery 'cause that's TV while he made a movie when he was seventeen called firelight for five hundred bucks and is that a film. Is that a feature film even his parents saw. I wouldn't say a featured like a debut meaning. It was released in movie theaters got it. Okay commercially available. Commercially available attack. Those are good ground rules. I'm glad that we established that play into my less later on. I do consider to be because it didn't get released in theaters. Well it is a feature film but it was not this little guy but that is considering his feature debut his first full length movie right what. What's the movie after that? Then Land Express okay all right so yes we'll stick to that okay before we play the game now. The people understand the game I want but just add one other thing the interesting thing about this game and I think will when we go through. We'll see it's where the decades are hard because there's just so many amazing options and where the decades are not A. There's not a lot of options. I just find the conversation around that to be interesting because lanes a little bit about where movies are and where they're doing exactly specifically the nineties which I thought was just a burst of like creative inspirational film makers and then the very decade after the ONS which I struggled I struggled to find. I have some counterpoint to that point but I I wanna use this as an opportunity to pick a bone with you. Oh Wow okay I resent you. I resent your your appearance on this podcast because what I what we need. What this podcast needs is people like you making movies and television shows will but you love movies and you film in a very discreet way. Yes but and I mean I guess we're going to get into it right now. It's gotTa think about think about indie filmmakers. What happened let's say Ryan Kugler? Who Loved Fruitvale? Right mazing what happened to him. After he made fruitvale he went into the machine he went into the machine. And that's what's happening with a lot of these other directors and that. That's the difference between the nineties and now so I think. Pta came out with holiday today. Is he making you know Batman in two years and by the way no not dissing on Batman? I'm excited for When Matt Raises Version of it? Because I'm a fan of his but I think it's just the industry is dictating a lot of what directors are doing now and you know and not to 'em this point that's the machine that we're in right now so and that's more reflective of the decade so t to to get to my TV point. Tv's where you get to make the interesting shit. I don't know if I could have made mister robot as a feature in fact I tried well. That was my fault. Got a little long winded. With how long was that? That forty five. Our film now That feature from I wrote ninety pages of wasn't even into act tune. That's when I realized I was in trouble. Was there a divergent path for you where after comet you could have just doubled down and said I'll stay. I'll continue to stay kind of broke but I'll keep making movies will. Yeah I mean that was the plan I was going to make Mr Buzzing indie feature and got stuck with it and Steve Golan Who You know owns anonymous content who Read the pages of Missouri Button at the time detective had just come out and he just He had just produced. That and I thought women that will this is fucking coal. And I don't need to do anything with this. I don't need to refashion the script that I had in mind and fitted into this to our box and honestly I was just really more. I remember thinking I was way more excited about true detective than I was about anything. Elsa came out there. Trust them into. What are your thoughts on true detective because I have no idea? I don't love thank you. Yeah I think I think I see yes. The first season I think true detective on its face is like a accomplished piece of television filmmaking and also I'm a huge fan of cary Fukunaga always and forever Perhaps not for the same reasons. Assess it to me actually wrap. It was such a turning point. Anything his best thing that he's done. I'm not even going to say Jane Eyre Okay. I haven't I haven't seen that I haven't seen the new Bond movie I but I'm really looking forward to it because I'm also a bond person and also I just you know I think true true detective as this carries best thing. I think that's probably true but my issue with detective is not actually true detective itself. It is the dialogue around your detective. And also I think that's a pivot point in terms of when and how we started evaluating TV in terms of tracking shots and the actual just the athletic like filmmaking as a way to bring the an experience. What is this athletic yet? Flex now and then on twitter people are now saying slaps what what is all? I don't understand that you want to explain the Internet. Let's start with the athletic because Amanda I. I've heard you use a lot and I've I've been on a lot of sets of never heard anyone say the words. I think the first person he was at my friend on the TV critic Philip asking and I think it puts its finger on this idea of money that you bring her up because she wrote this she wrote. It was a harsh. I mean whatever I respect her reviews she dissed my one episode of Mister Robot whereas all one tracking shot. I assume yes is what you mean by athletic because I do think that Filmmaking and TV and everything is more than cameras and more than where the camera is and there is such a absolutely station online. The damore as more aspect of filmmaking and I think that the tracking shot is caption of that and just like. Oh Wow. Did you see what he did. That was so cool. Oh my God. The camera is moving. You know don't you think it but don't you think has a to me every every sort of choice that you make with the camera has an effect and yes to some extent it it takes you out of it and draws attention to itself but to some extent. I really I mean what do you think of the Copacabana Sean? And I and I and I do. Actually I think even tracking protective is effective. But you know we're doing a podcast right now. That isn't essentially about how we talk about. Film and like establishing a Canon of source. And the cannon is so reliant on where do we put the camera and what did they itch on showing us an either. Don't respond to that artistically at some point. I'm just like Yay like fancy camera. Shots you got it. Congratulations to you but I do also think it distracts from the other equally important. I feel making that. Don't get enough credit. I think code is also a specifically athletic is code for Masculinity. You know it's code for this sort of The might of the male filmmaker. Now that's not always true if you watch like strange days for example. Kathryn bigelow is doing a lot with the camera yet. It is unorthodox and cool and might have what would otherwise be deemed kind of masculine energy. But I do think that true detective and largely the dialogue like you're saying was about a lot of dudes being like Yo. This is sick now. Personally I thought it was sick. Oh okay but I I would. I was not a fan of those scripts and I don't think that story is very strong but I thought that was really well

Summer's are slash on team woke up extra early to make sure we caught the livestream were prepared for an onslaught JAMES BOND, twenty-five news and said, we got a tiny little trickle. We didn't. We didn't get a title. They said flat out the first minute of the stream that they did not have title picked yet, which is annoying because specter and sky fall, we're both announced with a lot of Poppins pomp and circumstance with their title. And everything. So it's we're still calling a bond twenty-five for now. But initially they was a live stream from the GoldenEye villa in Jamaica, where author inflaming wrote most of the JAMES BOND novels, and of course, the name of his home inspired the United ninety five film GoldenEye. And here's what we did. Learn from producers, Barbara broccoli, Michael g Wilson and director Cary Fukunaga.

What do you say trickster something of a fan of? I don't know. I don't remember. I just love that video that was that's just as bad guy monologue that was probably screen test. I'm I'm real excited for this one. Because Cary Fukunaga is probably the reason true detective season. One was as good as it was. Indeed, we always talk about the tracking shot gotta love that track shot. But I go back to that. That was a standout moment. I think this movie will get it back on track. Not that like one movie means it was off track. But spector was such a pile of crap after a sky fall. Which is I think it's the best Daniel Craig bond. It's I don't feel like that's a hot take. Would you want yet for the best bond one? It's scarves become Craig one rather. I sky fall casino royale and addicted be close or you could put casino royale over sky fall, depending on what your taste is. And then quantum Solis inspector was last forgive big time last I would flip casino royale, but not by much. Much. I think they're neck and neck for the most part. Jeff love selection. I get Walton the balls chalet. I wanna see that scene down. I want Daniel Craig is JAMES BOND. Obviously in this movie. Just silently roll up in ram his electric Aston Martin to a bad guy. Can't even hear it coming. It's that quiet daunting to be driving miata..

"But I think that he just represents like a palatable type of straight white man that can appeal to a lot of different demographics. And I think him playing this kind of sexually fluid like open minded to some extent. Art critic is kind of plays into to chases argument, a little something like before last Wednesday come out this past Friday and last Wednesday when you saw the trailer. I remember you're incredibly excited about it. Because as you said it kind of hit all of your pet. Interests, and which were like visual art, Jake, Jilin hall, film, and film. And so it's there, and you're like, okay, I'm gonna watch this movie. It's looks ridiculous. And I saw and there's like Tony collapse in there. I love Toni Collette it's like horrid. Jason it looks like it's like a hereditary throwback. And so I'm like, okay. I'll watch it watch it because it has something for me. And what I started realizing is, of course, this kind of mega movie has had something really intentionally for everyone. And but when you're watching it, it's like, it's so hard to criticize it because it's so it's so indescribable, and I think that a lot of us watch that and they think that that is is is something great that you're like, oh, this is indescribable this confusing. This is something new where what I really think there's a there's a type of Netflix movie that's coming out that feels as if it sort of created by now Brigham and what we're starting to find out is maybe it was of course, we don't know specifically about this movie, but there's other movies like Burbach. I'm thinking of immediately or bright from 2017 seventeen with Will Smith for he's like a cop. And there's also like sexy orcs as well. And you're like, I don't understand how all this put together. And what we know from interviews specifically with believe his name is. Yeah, Cary Fukunaga who is an executive producer for true. Detective he said that for his series, which was it was maniac. I'm he admitted to g q that networks basely comes in. And they wait every creative decision against like an algorithm decision or the data that they have on what users like or what they think users. Yeah. And what Netflix has really turn into it started being, you know, a company that just sent you DVD's, and what's really become is this sort of incredibly large company that has more data than I mean. Amazon has a lob data because Amazon has everything. So as a streaming service, Amazon, you know has a lot, but Netflix, I would say is really the leader of kind. Big data with viewership, and they understand subcategories in each categories better than anyone, and they can really fuse that into a film in a way that they know will kind of take off and so its worst. We're getting to a point. Now, we're a lot of movies and a lot of criticisms are made algorithms, and it's just when I watch velvet bus, all that's what I see you see like, the Netflix algorithm, and maybe some net data people saying like, okay? Well, there's this me about Jake Jilin hall and black women. So we should definitely put that in because that will lead to more memes that will be PR for the show which and and they push memes for the show. I mean, they do that with everything with flex, but and then we know that people like this type of horror plot twists, but only for about three minutes and twenty seven seconds. We'll put that much into the movie, and then after that, we'll throw some kind of comedic thing. But people only like that for seven minutes. So we'll do that. And then like that what's going on? I mean, we we're not. Sure because net flicks holds its cards relate tightly and really closely by Cary Fukunaga, Fukunaga to to me seems to be the only person who's admitted kind of really publicly that algorithm has a huge influence in the way that they make creative choices. But I think we're gonna find out more and more that I mean, of course, that's what Netflix is doing. If you had all this data and your company that's concerned about profits. Why wouldn't you lean in use that? But I mean, you know, they'll buzzsaw Shas that. It doesn't make any sense at all. And yet you watch the whole. I mean, I a critic. So I kind of I can't turn it off. I guess that's what I tell myself. But yeah, I mean, it's it's watchable, right..

"And so in small ways, that's where we're going to start to plant that stuff. Again. This is also this issue really became about. What are the men? What are the architects actually doing day to day to try to control these witches? Right. They're not killing them. This is a choice. They've made they're going to try to control them. Instead, they saw that in the first issue. So what does the day to day of that look like, and this is the thing that really interested me five years ago when I first thought of this book, it's about the insidious ways that are built into the patriarchy in which men try. To control women, and it comes a lot of the stuff in here comes from conversations with my wife, and with my women, friends and relatives and stuff to get the reality of that. And Molly and Maggie. We're both really instrumental specially in this issue in issue to in coming up with those ideas, and being honest, and like telling me like I had an employer who did this or I hadn't ex-boyfriend who did this and those things work their way into this issue in various different ways. So you know, as much as I want to take ownership of this book as proud of I as I am of it. What really makes me proud of it is what a collaborative effort. It is. Starting in the storytelling with the editors. And then with doll foe who draws it and mersal Louise who colors it. The thing that Molly pointed out in that first issue is you're doing Jane Eyre. That's what this shit. This issue is when you get to the end of this I issue, and we and again like a commentary track. I assume you've already read the issue. And now you're gonna go back and experience it with me. So I'm gonna talk about things that happened throughout the issue, even before we get to them. So when you get to that last page, and we reveal that there is essentially a mad woman in an attic. Right. It's the trope that was introduced in Jane Eyre for us. It's hate a disgusting old witch in a closet, but when we get to that we you know that reveal is reminiscent of Jane Eyre. And so I went back to Jane Eyre, which when I was high school teacher is a book that I taught a couple of times, it's a book. I absolutely love. I went through. I watched some of the adaptation 's all of them are really good. There isn't a bad adaptation. Some are a little more boring than others. I also read the script. I read the script for Cary Fukunaga version, which was written by Moro defeat, which is a really great script. And if you are a screenwriter, it's one I recommend it really doesn't amazing job capturing the tone of the book, which is so dark and so weird. It comes across in the script, which is which is a hard feet. It's very impressive. And I literally pulled stuff out of both the novel and that script which I think was sort of versions of stuff that was from the novel. And put it in this issue of the comic. And I'll talk about that as I hit that stuff. But anyway, I talked last issue about how issue about how that issue issue. One began under water I wanted to do something that was the opposite here, and I wanted to continue the water motif. So we get. We get busy flying through the air about to splash into this pool. The floating thing in on this first page, it looks like a dragon in my script. It was a seahorse because it was supposed to be a reference to when Jane meets, Mr. Rochester..

"The synopsis for the new show sounds almost identical to the premise of the original show. Basically, it's about four thousand four hundred people who disappear over the course of many many years from in. This new show is going to be from the time that Sputnik launched in nineteen fifty seven to like as recently as a couple of weeks ago, and then one day and twenty nineteen all of them show up at once. And none of them have aged at all, and they don't have any memory of where they've been. So it's just about them reentering the world and trying to figure out what the hell happened. Marcia Ali, the Oscar winner from moonlight actually was in the original version the show, and we know that one of the original writers Craig's Sweeney is going to be a co creator and. Writer on the show at Taylor Elmore. From justified is going to be serving as the show runner. I watched the show, and I I really liked it. I think one of the the negatives is it was what was it for the sci-fi channel? It was very US USA network say network and this was before USA network. You know did shows like this robot and like a bigger budget shows and the monk era. Yeah, it really felt like it was a very low budget. It was all shot in like Vancouver something and it was like, especially the later seasons. I believe like dealt with big world. I mean, I I guess the whole series is whole dealt with world altering consequences, but it got bigger as the show went on. And it felt like the budget for the USA network had the play with could kind of quite handle that. So I am interested in a reboot. But I am not, you know, the the wave CW does things with it's kind of a I guess it's like the twilight era era of like kind of young adults tinged. In everything kind of looks a little cheap. Like, I'm not sure if that's enough for me to get excited for reboot of this franchise did either did any of you guys. Watch the show. I'd never heard of the forty four hundred until today. Really? Really good. Yeah. I I've never seen. It an episode IV definitely knew that it was on. I was aware of it at the time. But I just never I think it was one of those where it was almost like before the era of of streaming and I didn't want to go back and like rent the first season on DVD from blockbuster something and catching up. So I just I missed the beginning. And just never got on that particular train. Chris did you ever see any of it? No. I have never heard of it until today. So there you have it. It is a good show. I would highly recommend checking out even in this PTV world that we live in. I think that the show is still widely regarded as a cult hit a lot of people love it. And it has a lot of interesting things going for it it it. It was kind of in that age of everybody trying to copy lost in like this. Did it right? It was one of the shows that kind of kind of hit that kind of thing in the right way. Like the right. Balance of mystery, but also character's humanity. But yeah, let's see what this show looks like let's move onto another TV series. This is explorers. Based on the nineteen eighty Joe Dante film Christie wrote this up for say, what do we know? Yes. So this is a very strange like I never thought this. These two directors would team up, but Cary Fukunaga, and David Lowery are teaming to turn. Joe Dante's nineteen eighty five goonies like adventure film explorers into a TV series. Cary fukunaga. Of course direct in the first season of detective directed maniac. He's directing the new bond movie and David Lowery made a go story and peach dragon and the old man the gun these are movies that are nothing alike..

"Yeah. So when you just hear, okay, just at crouching tiger which was like an art house action movie, but then played like a blockbuster. Now he's gonna make a big action film for universal us and our navy, assuming that Hoke was going to be a conventional action movie. We really, maybe he is now John Frankenheimer, you know, maybe that's his new mold now. So it felt like, okay, this is him like playing in that zone. And now you watch this and you're like, I don't know if you have this reaction, but watching this short made me more excited for gem, nine men now. Interesting because I'm like about he hasn't played in a pure action. He isn't just made like a fun Jonah movie and we talked so much about how fucking good the action is crouching tiger and a lot of that Sukur Yager fee. You give your credit, right? But that movie is he has such a good understanding of how to construct an action sip piece in terms of coverage in terms of editing, and even sound mixing and score and all those things. And this is another short where. Just like his fucking car chases just so clean and sparse, you know, an economic and affective where you're just like kinda won't see him like shoot guys punching each other again, like I wanna see if he still got this shooting each other. I love to see him punch shooting each other. That been wash this'll short movie? No. So you would say your you did not choose. No. Hey, David. Got a quick question for you. Do you like diving deep directors, complete longer vase? Absolutely. I've actually been known to do that once in awhile, but certainly not on microphone now. No. No, no. Well, okay, more important question. Can you quote can bake best film tremors word for word? Sure. Probably, I mean, because you are making. On the dish to put a little bacon on the dish. That's right. David. I got great news for you. Yeah, because those are two things you like doing and because you have no outlet to do them on your own podcast. What if I could recommend a podcast for you to listen to. Okay. The storm spoiler. David spoilers podcast. Look, it started out as a show about game of thrones much like every show started out as a show about game, throw or some other expend franchise, right or serial parody. But it's become a podcast that now covers all of your pop culture. Obsessions from Star Wars thing we never talk about on this podcast, the complete works of Cary Fukunaga something we probably won't have reason to talk about maybe four or five years from now, give him a couple more then we can talk about him. Some podcast, take several episodes to cover directors, philosophy, lame sounds too long, extended unsustainable, your host Stormer spoilers have been known to cram it all into one saves time money who has a ten times the speed..

And I think magic is a great way to do it because magic like what other explanation do you need? Oh, she has magic. All right. Good to me. I personally, this is entirely different conversation. I personally feel we are too deep into the MC you to introduce mutants now that, oh, they're fixing the Infinity Gotland and snap means that's all they have to do. That feels like a cheap way of doing it. I personally just like x. men is it's all it's all these. Yeah, that's all this needed in every single freaking Netflix show, but they haven't done it. Cajun iron. Fist get to acknowledge the snap spoiler alert for those two shows stop snapping wondering how many people are listening to other something weird with the audio or just like brand is being an idiot. I mean, it both ways is kinda my fault, but that's fair. All right. So we got some new shows, you know what they can do anything with either of those and I'm going to watch them. So, I mean, that's, that's the messed up thing about this. We don't want these. They've already have our money, they sure Netflix, they literally already have our money. All right. Are under the radar. New story is that we have finally gotten some direction and by direction. I mean, directors and by directors, I mean directors for bond twenty five and for eternal. Cary Fukunaga is going to be directing bond twenty five. He is the first or maybe not the first, but I heard I heard the first, but this headline I'm looking at right now says a rare American director for the franchise. So I carry Fukunaga has some really cool stuff unders about, and there's this new show on Netflix called maniac. Hermit is probably movie. MAC is a manic I thought was maniac. I read. I very, could be wrong. Yeah, it's one of those two. It's one of those two people. It's a show. And at first I was like this downs Dom and then I sat there and let Netflix show me the little trailer. They made like, oh, this could be interesting. This could be interesting. Cary. Fukunaga is also known for the first season of true detective, which people have absolutely loved. He want an EMMY from that one. You know there. He did a Sundance film called seeing number and he did a Jane ir adaptation. So he's done some pretty heavy stuff. Also, I think you're right about the pronunciation of that word m. a. n. i. AC yeah, maniac. So it's maniac. Thank you for fact, checking us live. It's one of our listeners who was already halfway into the net flicks Hugh. Someone someone has that message typed out and just went dance. So. You know, he and he keeps switching between film and television at which oughta directors kind of looked down on, but his quote his his response to like, why do you do that was in my mind, I don't really differentiate it right now in the end, you either gravitate toward the story or you don't whether it ends up on Netflix HBO or on the big screen for a period of time. It's going to end up on Netflix HBO of actually, and you know what he's not wrong is he's like, he's gotta tell good story, and that's what makes.

"Like it's been parodied to death for hand. Yes. And so it's just hard to know which directions to take this franchise in because because fundamentally, unless he. Evolves significantly in ways that feel organic, feel logical. It's not going to be an interesting franchise to follow. So I am curious what take Cary Fukunaga has miss character, and I am also very dubious will actually see her that tick. I'm most interested in what set pieces you know carry would bring to this ranch is right. I'm thinking of this like y'all giving the way mcquarry approaches mission possible readiness point. Like if he has great ideas in terms of weakened what he can do with this character, I'm down for that even if they don't completely fix everything that's wrong with bond. Like how do you do bond in the me too moment? I don't know. It's it's. That's tough, and I believe they're still like working. You know, still the same writers is you'll right purpose in Wade. So who sink of a think of the stuff care if we're gonna hit for detector season one, you know, like a that drug raid sequence. I imagine that for all time. Great. Yep. All time TV shots in all of TV. So I think would be awesome if it ever came to pass like between casino royale and sky fall, like Sam Mendez like the say, what you know that people aren't you utans sky fall, but that movie has some fantastic set pieces and it's kind of algae. I believe so, yeah, it's worth it's worth watching just for Roger Deakins alone, you know? So I feel like Cary Fukunaga looking at that looking at him end as kind of not being able to match that with spector and saying, okay, how can how can I do better than that? And I'm excited for something like that. All right. That's what has been watching maniac by Cary. Fukunaga. Great director. Can't wait to see what he does next. Maybe it'll be bond. I watched a few things this week Devendra. I watched upgrade newest film by director Lee when l. a. part half of the saw franchise starter is like he was one of the one of the people inside and since then he and James one have gone in their own different directions. One of the writers right to correct writer and actor, and you know that movie franchise went onto make like, I don't know, half a billion, many billions of dollars at the box office. So yeah, upgrade. Interesting. Interesting movie. The plots of me from MD be real quick, and this movie is set in the near future where technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when gray a self identified technophobes has his world turned upside down. His only hope for revenge is an experimental computer. Chip implant called stem is only hope is technology. His own is coming. So ironic. So this is a lot of fun I have. It is a great B-movie in my opinion. And it reminds me of like be movies from like the eighties nineties, like your member. There's a company called artisan entertainment company. New release all these, like really kind of relatively low budget kind of b, movie, horror, genre, movies. And I watched like a ton of those movies when I was when I was younger. And so yet reminded me kind of like a movie they would make where it's it's a little bit too cheesy to be taken seriously, but it is still a ton of fun. And it actually feel the budget to at times like it's trying to paint this feature world, but they can't really aside from like one future looking car. That's pretty much it. Yeah, yeah. I actually listened to the commentary which is I would recommend to anyone because Lee one l. gives good lined by by the way. I feel like if you guys, if you listen to us in, you know our action movie sensibilities. I think anybody will appreciate this. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, that would say it's a blend if you're into kind of cheesy genre, like SCI fi, horror, movies, right? Let mainly for that commentary to the commentary is very good. It is very funny. He's very self deprecating. He gives actually practical advice about how to make a low budget shortfall, make it seem big. And I think it was like something. He said it was really interesting is it is very interesting what the audience is willing to forgive, right?.

"Right? And which by the way I can't even in my mind's eye, I cannot envision what Danny Boyle JAMES BOND movie with look like, right. Like I can't imagine what a Harry Fukunaga. James one looks like I think look a lot like, you know, like sky fall or something like just his like stylistically, right. He is so like his his, his visual sensibility is so like classical at times like it's it's not as manic is something like you'd expect from Danny boy, right? I expect JAMES BOND with a gopro on his head at some point or JAMES BOND, like being shot. There's really. Yell hand-held in ways. We've never seen before with Danny Boyle, chest mounted camera or something like that. He's running through thing. I think the thing is so for actually put a Twitter poll on Twitter, I'll come save, Chen ski, and I wrote today. It was announced that Cary Fukunaga was hard to direct the new bond film. Do you actually think a bond film directed by Cary Fukunaga will ever be released in theaters and fifty? Three percent said yes, forty. Seven percent said no out of over one thousand votes so amazing. I think that I don't know that this will ever come to pass. I think the the, the owners of JAMES BOND have really strong opinions on the kinds of movies at JAMES BOND can be in. It is like a few things baffled me about this one is that JAMES BOND is literally one of the prototypical typical examples of the concept of formulaic, right? I mean. It is so formulaic that you already like people already know the all the elements that are in JAMES BOND movies, right? You. You can name them if you tried. Right. Like there's all like every movie. These have like all these, like opening action sequence, evil, evil, super villain. Tons of one liners and puns shaken not stirred bubble. Never Dan, Daniel, Craig movies, like kind of up ended that in some ways, but pri- talents. Yeah. Prior to Craig, it was very, very formulaic. And so it's kind of weird to me that you can't find a director who's willing to get on board effet. It's like, we don't know. We don't know what's going on with the producers and everything. I think around the casino royale era they were desperate. 'cause like the last bras, movies drove the franchise into the ground and you had like you. He had borne and you had some like fresh new, you know, action film franchises and stuff like they needed to evolve in the my main takeaway with the the last movie whose name I can't even remember right now specter. Spector seemed to go to great lengths to bring bond to where he was before. Right? Like right setup. All the characters were expect them and just like rebuild that old paradigm. And I think that's kind of what, what hell that movie back. And also it was a complete mess. So it was much more campy than all the rest of the Dan. Yeah, movies, right? Yeah. And so so that's one thing like, you know, I think that's that's largely accurate. What you're saying about the direction the franchise is taken, but bond fundamentally has always been an extremely retrograde character. He's Verka. He does not fit into today's progressive society in my opinion. You know, like I think I just think you can't have a character named pussy galore anymore..

"Just throws in this show in at one point he has like a CG giant spikey Goku anime hair thing going on. And you know, he's like having weird ritual sex with the digital creature that has a ton of tentacles or something it's completely within the world is show is just so weird. I've never seen him so like, I don't know. Silly is the way like he is just as I think the show has a lot of fun with just throw in his weird and wacky hairstyles and things like that. So heartaches plane. I can't really say more. This is what you just said was almost completely gone principle, but just like just imagine just throw having like virtual sex with a, you know, a character from world of warcraft, and just the through like fully into it too. He's really giving it his all as you'd say. It's amazing. Like this show feels like it just I don't know. I come to this. Are you in ten episodes so far? This is basically miniseries. I don't think they're going to continue after this, but how many are you in to it? I'm in about six. The spicy. Okay. So you've watched the majority of it at this point and you watching most of it something you'd recommend Yemen? Gabriel Byrne is in the show. Nice. It's crazy. Gabriel. Burt, like at one point doing like a weird bad, like New York gangster accent, which is pretty good at one point, the Chagos kind of and it turns into like a cone, brothers story set in Long Island, like it's just all over the place, but I'm living every minute of. It if you like those references I've mentioned, it's a pretty much. I think you'll enjoy it. All right, that's maniac. It's available Netflix right now. I'm actually really looking forward to checking this one out. It looked so interesting. So, yeah. Maniac. Okay. Also, by the way about Harry can say, happy to hear that he's potentially the next bond. We'll see what happens with that because he's left a couple of high profile projects before I do feel like he can't keep doing that, right. No matter how good you are. You kinda have to go all the way through when these things. So I'm hoping we see that movie. I don't know. I feel like if you've got the talent which I think carefully Naga definitely does you can leave, however many projects you want at least. I don't know. He just wasted. There's a great article. I believe it was g. q. or something, but he basically burned years of his life. You know, with movies and projects of just didn't happen. So I think now he's like, well, I can't be the young. You know, firebrand forever. It can have to do something. So if it's if it's compromise that he has to do, maybe it will be bond, but who knows like, yeah, the damn thing. Let's let's think of some, of course over time anyone's anyone's juice in Hollywood runs out. Of course, I don't feel like that's the case with Cary Fukunaga yet, but we'll see like he like beasts of no nation, right. We talked about that movie the no Oscar love reeling when you when you make a movie that makes you know five hundred million dollars worldwide that gives you more options, right? Yes. And that might be something that he's interested in doing because I think those generally do pretty well. Danny Boyle can walk away from that movie in half. You're consequences, whereas I feel Cary Fukunaga still waiting for like that one big hit moment because the people who like movies and Sinophile appreciate him, but not any other people yet. He has not had a widely commercial mainstream hit quite yet, and right. And so maybe he's maybe this calculation there. Now as you pointed out, Danny boy left the project..

"And I think it actually makes a lot of sense and not just sense in wants. Yeah, Harry is not like I don't think Cary Fukunaga movies and always carry around a certain thematically coherence to them that goes from movie to movie. He's exquisite composition. He is one of. The great like frame artists. He obviously based on what we know from the detective like is incredible. Moving the camera. He's a, he's a great stylist. I think he's very thoughtful, but I wouldn't say that these movies have like a a through line where you're like, this is what Cary Fukunaga makes movies about. And if you don't like it, then you shouldn't hire carry. No. The through line with him is is like the camera emotion and character in relation to their surrounding. Yeah. No, it's like sonoma's where he's taking the camera into the sort of hide out of these drug dealers and he's looking in every room and you just see people out of corner of your eyes or the cameras. I like doing stuff you know, or detective or it's his cars like gliding pass oil, refineries and it's it's all about atmosphere and catches relationship to their surroundings as taken by camera. I mean, his training is as a as a DP and he's, he's still just has his brilliant I, but the medically, yeah, the things that you in trouble with the broccolis it. When you're trying to JAMES BOND film or when you're like, what if JAMES BOND was someone different? And there's like a couple of successes with that. Like the probably one of the best ones is the San Mendez sky fall where it's like, what James van was being batted. Yeah, it was bad being JAMES BOND washed and what if he was an orphan, what have we finally find out a little bit about what made him the way he is what we basically like gave some interior already, this guy and some real regret angst, self-doubt, scarves, you? Yeah. And that that I was kinda shocked that they even allowed that to happen. It's a very, it's one of the better JAMES BOND films. But by the time specter rolls around, it's gotten much more convoluted and they kind of have like, I think that that's the problem with with where they're at with this with that reluctant bond. In terms of Craig we're talking about is because that way, if if Craig's, not like I wanna do something that forever change. The trajectory of this character and we and we bring in this idea that he's foul that he's guilty of certain crimes that he's an aging dinosaur in this break Brexit era. He probably doesn't want to do that. I mean, he had the opportunity to do that because that by all accounts is what Danny Boyle wanted to do. You hire Danny Boyle for subversion for the most part. It's also not like a great continuity strategy for these things. I mean, it's like you mission impossible film and you wanna see Tom Cruise pilot his own helicopter, and and you're willing to do some medicine and you're willing to do some self doubts up occasionally butt Lake, Michigan possible. JAMES BOND is endlessly renewable because it's action set pieces in great locations and a certain kind of. Bygone English colonial vibe. And if I understand guys like boil or Mendez for that matter, especially these Englishman who who come to it and are like empires dying and so his JAMES BOND, but that is not how the broccoli family's gonna keep making JAMES BOND films at some point. There's this like, can we get that tracking shot from true detective in here and will reinvent bond by not by not having the camera cut when he's like fighting seventeen dudes rather than reinventing bomb by being like, what if JAMES BOND was kind of a bad dude? Yeah. And if anybody is wondering about that, I mean, you can just watch Cary Fukunaga commercial work and see him make western Pennsylvania look like the French Riviera and know that he.

"To today's episode of the watch on today's pod, my friend Zach baron drop by and we talked a little bit about Cary Fukunaga taking over the JAMES BOND franchise, which is obviously pretty shocking news coming after. Daddy boils exit from from the long running series, and we wanted to talk a little bit about what that means for Fukunaga for bond. And then also a little bit about Kerry Nagas new. Netflix show maniac, which is coming out on Friday. After that, I had a really, really awesome banned from Los Angeles called the Alton drop by and they played a few songs for us. They were incredible live like just an absolute delight. If you get a chance to see them, I know that they've got a record coming out and they're gonna start touring a lot more soon. So you gotta check out for them at the Alton on Twitter to find out where they're gonna be playing around you. I can't recommend this ban highly enough. I'll talk a little bit about them before. The music starts a little bit later in the podcast bullets get into my chat with Zach, baron. In wall now. Hello and welcome to the watch. My name is Chris Ryan. I'm editor at the rigor dot com. And joining me in the studio is the Robert Carro to carry Fukunaga's Lyndon B Johnson, I think that's fair to say it's act Barron. Very fair. What's up? Man? What's up man, Zach, and I are very, very close friends. We're our own support system on a golf course in Los Angeles, but Zach also chronicler of of modern celebrity and of of some of the great creative minds that we have today, and one of them is carry forgot. And you just wrote a piece a couple, I guess, would you wrote the piece awhile ago, but it was proposed couple of weeks ago, Cary. Fukunaga and today we wake up and it's an ounce at Cary. Fukunaga digging over the bond franchise. Yeah, feel way about that. Actually did not mention that when we was there even any suggestion when you were hanging out with him where he's like, yeah, you got a couple irons on the far, but I guess Danny Boyle, still. Acting debut was still in and maybe he was like plotting his palace coup. The thing is he's had like seven projects and development and even time, yes, since before you may first film where he's very ambitious and just has like seven scripts going, it feels good to blog about him to attack. And be like, you know, who'd be good for this carrying dog, or you know, is like high drama. Like he'll go in on a project and he'll like develop a project and I hope quit the project and he'll spend two years working on something. And then. And he did with the Elliott? Yeah. And then would you? But I thought one of the things that was really kind of convincing in the piece was his description, or at least is his account of like people think that I'm like throwing all my toys out of the pram when I get my way or something. And these were like rally, like varying degrees of amicable departures from these situations because of these x. y. z. reasons like I didn't think that he was like this phone to re blow. You know what I mean? Right. I think it I think the reality is somewhere in between. Okay. And I think Kerry would top to that. Okay. Obviously in the peace, he's a little defensive about. Because of it now working out because the alien is not working out because of some other CO projects not working out because of Nick his lotto taking a little shot at him in season two of detective with that character. Yeah, it is a very pretentious director that may or may not be a standard for Kerry. I think he will Gyda million. Some circles has a rep for being little bit difficult and being a guy who is going to do it his way or is not going to do it. And I think there's some truth in that. But as you say, obviously, he be the first to be like, I ran a money on BC donation and we just we shot the third act like compromise compromise on true detective in a million different ways. You know, this is a guy who like with the second film made Jane Eyre because he just wanted to make a studio film. He's like, I'm not like a renegade here. I'm like trying to play ball, and I think that's true as well..

"Of director season one, Cary. Fukunaga it's online. It's g. q. guess on newsstands soon because Kerry directed the entire season of million Heidrick Somerville show maniac, which is excited today next month on on Netflix. And I think, you know, I don't know if it's been reported, but certainly not the best blood has been insinuated between Kerry and Nikolai. Oh, I have no insight into the matter. Only say that in this piece. Piece, Cary Fukunaga refers to season one as basically formulate cop show. That's not the exact quote, but I can't push back a little bit on that. Also, Armijo goes in this is introducing three to, but I pushed back a slight amount because I read that I saw people saying like, okay, he's dragging true detective, I, but I think he was saying it's just a cop show. Let's have some fun with it. I don't think he was saying that the final product was no, but but the he is referring to the script that he elevated in his own. I think his own mind with the direction which I think is true, and I think that's what we were within season two. I have a complicated relationship to that whole thing now, quite honestly because now I am sitting here to production office trying to make TV and I think that I am, and I think it was at the time too, but I think I am definitely more fond of sympathetic to season two in a way because. You know, again, by all accounts must reading the tea leaves and just experiencing it in. It was an example of a writer, resting ownership of something and going for broke right now. I think Brooke, I think that that season did not work on many, many, many, many levels, but the ambition behind it and the desire to do something great. I've do feel is worthy of applause and so I, but even more than that, I appreciate the fact that do circumstance do career movements or whatever else happened in the interim that this that HVO granted crater in whom invested quite a bit time to if not get it right, feel comfortable doing. So I'm, I'm I, the deck is cleared on domestic for it. And this is aside from this amazing cast. The other reasonably optimistic about this season is the presence, at least for the first few episodes and he was supposed to drink more, I think, but wound up leaving. I mean. For timing reasons. I think. But also I think you could make argument that maybe Nick, it's a lotta is a notoriously prickly character when it comes to. Obviously we've talked about with these first two seasons, and there was about creative control, Jeremy, Sonya, who's director that I really like a lot directed a movie called blue ruin a movie called green room and has a Netflix film called hold the dark coming in the fall, directed the first episodes of season three. And there is also the kind of unknown how much I know he's got script credit on at least one of the episodes. This season is David milch who haven't seen TV thing in a minute. So I'm really, I'm pretty fired up to see this and it's coming in January of two thousand nineteen, which is a nice thing to look forward to. I don't know. I never going to say no to this show. I guess in this might be a good segue into the other via property, discuss sharp objects. I guess to track my feelings about the show through the seasons it to go back to carry Fukunaga's quote, I've actually always enjoyed the show most when it felt comfortable being a cop show because I don't think there's anything wrong with being a murder mystery show or a cop show..

"No, yeah, you're right. I mean, I was I was super super aware of, you know that I was asking audience to to to really, you know, on familiar with the accent, but to really listen. But what what's come from that is that people feel like they've just taken them real authentic journey into, you know, a place they didn't know too much about. I've seen the film with subtitles as well, and and it's, you know, it's is equally as enjoyable. So I think that you know audiences once they get to see this from over, they see it with subtitles on not will feel like they stepped back into the eighties. They will feel like they've been to Jamaica for a second. And that was just the subtitles. Well, Americans. Okay. No, but there will be. I mean, there will be a subtitled version available when you know, eventually comes out in so's s for you know, I think this is a film. My hope is that people will watch, you know, over and over again and there'd be moments several look at yard e in even if they don't watch it, they'll just, you know, enjoy the music and enjoy the language and enjoy, you know, the visuals. Yeah, the the San, the soundtrack is terrific. Don soul and reggae change. Did you ever consider. Including the nineteen sixty seven, Desmond Dekker in the track. Oh, oh, seven. What about that has won the award for the most inventive link into the bond? I honestly, you win the awards. You definitely when they want. I'm just asking about in the music. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, that's really good. I'll give you run flows now. I didn't. I didn't want to use that, particularly didn't feel appropriate. What kind of and and as director Idris, when you're when you're on set, you've worked with some of the very finest directors. Who of you who've you learned the most from. I mentioned Cary Fukunaga earlier who I think he's an incredible director and he was the director of that definitely, you know, inspired me the mush to go and make this movie Ridley Scott though, Ridley scar. And I made two films for me and American gangster and it's a masterclass. You know, it was just a Mazda cost. I, I would be onset watching him work even if I wasn't in the scene because he's incredible. And he taught me. Told me about precision, you know, he told me that, you know, people watch films fear four times and each time you should let them see something new each time and to do that. You need to give layers and layers and layers of information that authentic. And that's why you know I took from from Ridley, you know. He was sort of the most, you know, educated man about the film on the set. And of course he's died the director, but you know, he was educated so that if you had a conversation about lenses, you know, he knows what he's talking about him why he wants this lens and and you know, I took that away with me an, I mean, listen, I'm not comparing my movie to anything that ridley's ever done. But I hope if he sees it, he'll see that I paid attention to some of the things that he's done in his films. It just pleasure to speak to you. Thank you very much, indeed, time today. Thank you very much. He.

And I know that it is there is a great film critics disease, which is revealed reviewing a film for the film. You wanted it to be rather than. The film that it is. And I think the safest way of saying it is, I wish that it isn't. I wish that it wasn't. I wish that it was a different film or that it wasn't this film until I guess I'll stop. Sorry. Thank you.

Now, no, you've done promotions and stuff for movies before, but does it feel different when it's your film? Not just the star star of it, but it's your film. It does feel different different types of questions done. You know, you don't have to do the raw as much of Byara rhyming, you know, as an act to you. So of, you know, the movie could be good, bad, indifferent, but you're all about you and your performance as indirect to it's, you know, everything falls on your shoulders and and I think you know, the criticism is criticism. Impreza is slightly different. You know, it's, you know, I think it's more fair is weird because you know the director you, so of all you did make this picture, but you're part of leadership team of a few team. Of Puerto together as a nine tell, you can really any talk about your performance, but you own this. I mean, this is this is an interest Elba movie in a way that even though you've dominated a lot of films this, not like this, not now this is a first for me and you know, it's a welcome one. I've had an amazing time, so I'm an an an and and actually I've had a time where have been most daunted by my work is is you know, putting this film out, I've never, you know, had to have the the responsibility that comes with putting a film this. Yeah, I, I guess it means you a lot for first in last out gig. Exactly that exactly that, yeah. What were you on the lookout for? It is you know, you're obviously being goes to be on your radar before, but what? What? What was the? What was it about this story that made, you think? Yep, this is one. I'm going to take the plunge for. Well, I think just to give you some context, four, four or five years ago, the script came across my desk and you know it was this from a conversation that I had of my direct my my agents. I just finished well curve, Cary Fukunaga and I said, on on a film, Kobe's donation and I said, you know, really want to director, Phil, I really wanted to. He was very big inspiration for that. That moment anyway, this script came along and I remember the book. I remember it being one of the first books I have read to be honest as young..
"cary fukunaga" Discussed on Awards Chatter
"And I wonder if focus had any idea, it would do the sort of business or what this means for the movies award. You know, words run. Yeah, I think just to that and it's interesting process. People should know is that the documentary branch of the academy solely picks the nominees, and then the full academy picks the winners. So this is one of these situations probably like Amy, where if you get nominated, if you can get through the branch, which is these guys are tough critics of ducks. Then it becomes of the five nominees, which is the most sort of widely appealing so movie about lovely, Fred Rogers at a time when we're living through the Trump age, I think we'll probably do very well with the full academy, but the cynical kind of dot branch itself might prefer something a little harder heading or edgy. So we'll see what happens there. But let's talk about another kind of thing anticipate in the coming award season and that is. How Netflix is scrambling to find a way to offer. It's a wards hopefuls more of the ethical released and they've been able to provide in the past. The lack of that is something that I know upset Cary Fukunaga with BCS donation, which was Netflix is I sort of narrative awards contender years ago and having a theatrical release, very important to people like Fonsi Koran for Roma and Paul Greengrass for twenty second of July movies that are coming from Netflix. Can you explain why theaters are resistant to working with Netflix and how Netflix might find a way around it to satisfy those filmmakers? Yeah. I mean, that's like the huge question as a word season begins. You know as long as net flicks opens their movies, Dan date, and they've been very Ottoman that their movies open on their streaming service that that's the priority. And as long as that's the policy, they're not gonna get space in theaters. No one is going to back off of that because then the floodgates are open. So the question then is, you know, does net flicks back off like Amazon studios? Does they abide by the theatrical window orders net, Holly window now, I mean, it's it's not sentenced stone anymore. I would say roughly around three months, you know, maybe a little bit shorter for the digital window. So the question is, does net flicks back off or do they strike some innovative bargain? You know what they've done in the past couple years since piece of no nation is they rent theaters what what's called four wall to qualify for wards consideration as well as to please the filmmaker. But they don't report grosses. So. They don't get any press in box office stories. So there's none of that sort of in the guys coverage that a film in theaters gout. What is do? What was the story with pick cedars the small chain that I thought they had acquired it so that they could say we're giving at least a token theatrical release? No, they didn't. They struck some just like the landmark. They struck some deal where they got access to theaters, but essentially it was just a very glorified rental agreement whereby you pay for the the auditory myself. So would it ever make sense for Netflix to do something like what I believe Cinerama did decades ago, which is why we still have the Cinerama dome and some of these things which is to just buy your own chain of theatres. Right. I mean, there was they did landmark when on sale early this year put up on the block, and I think Netflix kick the tires of landmark. But the question is, you know, even net flicks like, what do they do renting theaters business? You have. To book other films, you know, do they really want that headache? That's a pretty pricey proposition, right?.
