"That we can all relate to. I think no i think what it's tapping into. This goes back to ks anxiety. And we're talking around over kind of spoiling it. I mean she finds herself in a similarly conflicted an anxious place as you might be right now which is sadness and relief and at it's magnified of course for her because this is a sister. She's talking about but yeah. I think i think you know. Putting in that context makes me appreciate the ending a little bit more. I felt you know this time. It was a little much like it suddenly became. It was sort of an ultra dramatic gesture in a movie that You know had otherwise kinda catalog things a little more subtly Or at least in its own way. It's not a subtle movie but it's in its own unique way and this seemed like how most people would end this movie. Let me put it that way But thinking about it. After just hearing you talk about that i see how it does shed a new light on kay's psyche and how she's going to have to process this. Which as i said is what i think. The movie is really about is is k. Is learning to live in the world as a woman with this sister with those parents who has a shot at being healthy but somehow can't quite find her way to that place while these people are still still have their claws her Yeah the best line in this movie other than the line. We've been dancing around about what love is is when casey says something like i didn't write it down. I apologized but she says something like she just showed up. That's it here that the line that you ought to hear it. She was she was just born. she was just. I don't have anything to do with her. It's so great. Great you know it is. What criterion was alluding to with that. Line that nobody chooses their family but man what a way to frame that to frame that idea. If you've ever had again talking about real things if you've ever had any animosity with any one of your siblings or you've ever struggled you've ever felt like how could we even be related. This doesn't make any sense describing that way it does speak to something. That's more primal something. That's deeper that is driving case own kind of madness that the way she sees it. It's like why. Should i be burdened. My whole life with her. I didn't have any part in this right. Yeah it's edits. It's such a good line and it's a good example. The humor to and this is probably where we should point out that campion co wrote the screenplay actually with gerard lee. So who you know who knows where that line came from. But this was a A project that she had a co writer for so yeah and not to go for easy personal readings but doesn't the movie end with a dedication. Oh my gosh here. Yeah i mean. Is that like the darkest joke in the fill. The last you see four my sister well sweetie is a great start to the suv. Review is currently available on the criterion channel for digital rental next week. We'll get to nineteen nineties and angel at my table..

"They're going to go off and look for their mother who has left the father at this point. But they know they can't take sweetie so they concoct this plan to basically jump in the car distract her with a phone call and take off so she won't realize that they're ditching. Her and i think you're gonna feel a couple of things in that scene. You're gonna feel here relief. I mean i felt some relief for them right. They're sure they're getting a break. They're getting to go search out the mother and kind of bring her back in the fold because she's left the performance works. I think because. I also felt a tinge of own now like she can't be alone now. Like shit you're right. She's gonna like this is not good for her and i think this gets to the point. Your chicken and egg thing is great because You know these parents. If you had a child who suffering from some sort of mental illness these may have been the worst parents to have because the father john darlene seems oblivious and really believes she could be this professional entertainer. You know. They did these routines when she was little and he still thinks and has filled her head with history that she could be an entertainer of the mother played by dorothy berry. She just kind of pretend. This is all above her pay grade. You know this. I can't. I can't help with any of this. I think it's kinda crazy but you know it's what am i going to do. What chance does a child or young woman who's facing some sort of serious mental illness have in a in a situation like that and they're also hints atom. I think we're gonna find delight. Campion and sexuality is a really challenging area. Because it's It's something in her movies. That is dangerous but alluring. it's something that's You know it can be the answer to life's mysteries but it can also be no big deal like. Why are people making a big deal about this very frank films and it's also something that's that's dangerous and damaging and there are hints around the edge of this movie. I read at least of possible. Sexual abuse When sweetie was young. It's it's just kind of you know. There are certain scenes or references. That that's how i read it. And so that's another element where i think does build up empathy for sweetie to go back to your point where you realize that this is a woman who is a storm and i can't imagine living with her in my life either but also is in need of help that she is just not gotten now. I want to say like. I think we've made our. I have probably made the sound really really dark. And i think it is but there is know campion brings an incredible amount of. I don't know what what would you call it. It's it's i guess it's kind of wit but it's it's for me. It never crossed over into something that was calculated whimsey or calculated quirkiness But there she brings a light touch and some humor to it so that it's maybe not as oppressive or as disturbing as i'm making it sound. No i think. That's i think that's totally fair. And yet as we talk about that darkness. That is there that that makes me think about the way i would describe this movie to somebody if they just asked me for kind of a one sentence description. Not of what the movie's about but how it's about it. And i know that a listener tweeted something at us about finally watching this film and really appreciating. I think they made a reference to one of these movies. I apologized that listener. I don't have it in front of me. So i don't remember exactly what they said but watching this movie i was struck. By how much felt to me. Like david lynch by way of vendors. And i think that's because i had paris texas in my head. Monday fairly recently discussed it in a bonus show for our listeners. Everything about that sequence. Going way out into the delo with the news with jack and the dancing and even the lighting during that sequence reminded me so much of that great film paris texas but then who knew and so. This is what. I want you to fill me in on a little bit. You said there's so much here. That is jane campion well as you know. I haven't seen as many of her films as you have. I definitely have not studied them as closely as you have. I haven't reviewed any of them so this is really going to be a learning experience for me in this series and watching the first film of course it does set that foundation. So i'm curious. Is that something. I should get used to seeing or expect to see in later. Campion films that that kind of sense of almost supernatural dread that permeates this film again all the all the talk about superstition and fate and believing that she is sort of doomed and the the notion of this tree that they have these terrible roots and get under the house everything about those sequences and the way they're filmed actually legitimately did make me think of david lynch's eraserhead and not in a way where i felt like be was was aping lynch's style but it gave me that that same feeling of dread. I had watching that movie. This idea that they're these hidden things in the world that you simply cannot escape or avoid other forces at work though maybe there are other forces. This movie perhaps suggest josh that their forces. That.

"Not you not allowed. You print the bloody window really mad at you. Wouldn't i've been care. It was really stiff. Of course was it loved. That's from sweetie nineteen eighty-nine feature debut director. Jane campion couple of weeks ago. Adam we wrapped up a marathon dedicated to the films of hong kong director wong car. Why now we turn our attention to campion whose career got. Its start right about the same time. As wong's in fact wong's first feature as tears go by we discussed it and campion sweetie both play the eighty nine cannes film festival. And i didn't realize that. But i've gotta say i thought of as tears go by while watching sweetie. Maybe that's something we can discuss. Yeah the long marathon was devoted to the titles in the new criterion collection box. Set the world of one car. Y seven of wong's films loosely related by setting theme and a cast and crew. This can't be in series as we've mentioned is a retrospective of her entire feature film output from eighty nine sweetie through two thousand nine right star and all of this is in anticipation of the november release of her new feature the power of the dog. Let's get sweetie. The movie is about k. played by karen colston. A nervous and superstitious woman in her twenties for life is turned upside down when her sister. Don aka sweetie flayed by genevieve lemon shows up and let's say re inserts herself back in kay's life now. This film is available currently on the criterion channel. And they have a series. They do call three reasons. Short montage kind of music videos one to two minutes. They may be available on the criterion channel. They are definitely available on youtube. Where they give you three reasons to care about this movie or why. This movie is substantial again. It's all just images from the movie put to music. And they put those three reasons in text on the screen and their three reasons for sweetie. Josh are daring directorial debut. Nobody chooses their family and the storm. That is sweetie. Do you agree with all of those reasons and if you had to pick one. Is there one of those three for you. That really makes sweetie a stand up while daring. Directorial debut is why i thought of as tears go by and obviously because we just recently watched it but here are films. I knew they were of pretty much. The same era and i thought you know how similar they were in terms of just right out of the gate bold unique visions like these are whatever you make of the film at the end of the day. You cannot deny that it's coming from a particular point of view. Anne pierce cinematic talent So what was the second one. The family nobody chooses their family chooses their. I mean you know to call this a dysfunctional family drama. I don't think is doing service to the level of darkness. That's underneath this movie. Even though it may not on the surface look that way but yes completely recognized that i think it's very interesting The performance of dawn gets back to that third element. I think the performance as dawn by genevieve lemon which i think is quite remarkable in something that is obviously showy This is someone that a. k. Herself describes i believe as a bit mental and so mental. Health is clearly at play here. there's you know she will pretend to be a dog at times to get her own way and literally bite her family members so they're serious challenges going on here but i think the performance manages to make her not just Kind of a freak in any way but someone who is damaged potentially also been damaged by her family. This goes back to the darkness that circling on the outside of this movie. I don't know this is just such a campion movie from the start even if it and we say something maybe similar of as tears go by is not quite as fully formed or coherent as further pictures we will get to but in its consideration of of particularly anxiety I think in how family relationships feed into that It just seems very much. Something that is pure campion And yeah i think those three reasons are good are good guidelines to give to encourage someone to check this out. Yeah that point in particular about sweetie and her character one. That has some depth to it. Despite the fact that i mean let's say it. She's she's annoying. she's a burden. Oh yeah see you see how she is in that house the the storm that she is as the three reasons say the way she comes in and just turns everything upside down and makes everything about her and really uproots the lives of k. And louis even though they were having their own problems to begin with and we're probably doomed anyway of course when i say doomed anyway now i sound kind of like kay and the way she used the world as if all of this is is faded somehow but the fact that she is a character. Who watching you. You're sorta glad that you have the distance of the screen between you that you aren't k. That she has over. She hasn't taken over your house and and kind of ruined your life and yet movie finds ways in that performance finds ways to make her endearing enough. Certainly enough that you feel some cemented before i mean you touched on it which is realizing that you know k. isn't exactly quote unquote normal. Either and neither are her parents. And maybe you know chicken or the egg maybe sweetie caused that or maybe they they call sweetie to be the way she is but the fact that i found myself at different points still being really grateful that i didn't have to interact with someone like sweety in my daily life i i saw the humanity in her. I saw her as a character who i wished i wish could get our act together. Not because of the unhappiness. She was causing other people but because of her own unhappiness. Yeah so that. That's something different that just kind of a monster. Even though that kind of is the role she plays in this film for sure. I think the litmus test point for that. I'll be interested to see if you experienced it this way About halfway through the film this is after their father shows up At most of the action takes place at the house that she shares with lou at some point her father shows up played by john darlene And the three of them decide..

"Chris clinic and we had a couple of first time. captains katie. Rife from the av club. And so hail resumes d. Who is a film writer and film programmer works at columbia university and it was the first time so hail and i had actually spoken to each other since he was a listener of my radio. Show back at the university of iowa. When i was a grad student and he was in high school i was gonna say if i heard correctly he he used to listen as a seven year. Old is that. Is that how that well not quite. But it wasn't lost on me. That soheil was younger then. Then my daughter sofie is now as she was sitting next to me playing trivia spotting so the fact that now i have a daughter older than he was back when i started the show. That was the precursor to this. Show it it definitely made me feel pretty old. Pretty quick world atom. We are old we are. We're going to have to embrace it because we have no choice. The winning team was the hills. Have eyes of tammy faye. Sam van haugen takes two months off from trivia spotting comes back with a vengeance in wins for the first time. So i'm not good math. Like like brosnan's bond. I'm not. I'm not good with numbers but i have you winning a trivia spotting. Yes i think that sam. That did happen. Sam winning trivia spotting. How how many of i one. I mean we're still plane so clearly the only reason we're still playing is because you haven't won yet good point. It will stop as soon as i win. I'm gonna go out. I'm gonna go out a champion. Sam's team was awesome. Andre cadeau wendy fox weber linda. Ross bratton a two-time winner. I think wendy's now a four-time winner. She's getting good draws here with the captains you know or is she the lucky charm. I let me just point out. I have not yet been able to play with wendy. My former my former editor teen of these things. I gotta logic complaint with our quizmaster about that. I think wendy's been on my team twice so she's probably lodging combat the. Mvp says paul nadeau. He is a very good player. Every time had paul on my team. Jason montgomery very good player. They're all very good players. Jason's been a regular on a couple at adam. Captain teams where. We've come very close. And then stephen melbourne. Who sent us a really nice note. Thank you for that. Stephen and i guess i will just have to take away that i had i had two victories will one you have to give me one. I don't know if you'll give me. I did win. For the first time the captain versus captain lightning round showdown. It would come down to me you and then ultimately me a nick alan in the category of sports movies. Pretty fun game thomas. Todd would give us a movie. You just have to say what sport yeah was. Good was fun. What's elisabeth wasn't it. You did wasn't salmon that final round two or did i know it came down to you and nick but yeah i thought going he was in there but maybe the point of all this we need to i need back up is that you want it. I realized what we're trying to do. Here okay sorry. I wanna get a little jabbing at sam because i don't even get to relish my victory i i pulled it out on a movie i've never even heard of didn't know it existed. The movie was called. Stick it and i'm thinking about it and i'm getting confused because in my head i hear stick it. I think about stick. It makes me think of a wicket. But i couldn't actually come up with the word wicked because if i had i would have thought of cricket and i might have said cricket. That's where my head went. Wow but i couldn't. I couldn't place it and then at the last minute the very last minute. i'm like. Oh yeah like stick. The landing i said gymnastics and i was right and i've kind of pat myself on the back. I say man how did i. How did i pull that off in. Sam chimes in and says well. I don't know the movie was called. Stick it so you realized it was gymnastics. Yeah i mean oh okay i think it wasn't like shirley sherlock work there but it got either way so congratulations to win. Third place finish overall. Here's the other victory. We'll see if you give it to me. I said on last week's show. But i was really proud of my team name now other than maybe adding an extra fifteen minutes to the show because thomas had to say the team name yeah every time. He referenced it. How do you think i did. I think it was fine. As as i said and as as the aforementioned wendy fox whoever who is i pointed out isn't editor said adam needs an editor. It was a little long a little long but clever good job. good job. well you know what maybe this will make. Wendy feel better. When i was actually driving in my car last week and this came to me and traffic. The title was just licorice pizza pie. That's p. t. a. moray and that it was the day of trivia spotting where i realized now. Now i'm i'm going all in if you're gonna go with song reference you gotta go with the whole line so in fact our team name was. When the moon hits your. I like licorice pizza pie. That's pta moray so. Wait a minute proud of it. Are you telling me on second. Thought you decided to make something longer and more complicated. That's exactly right. I can't believe that. I know you're shocked. Well if you want to participate in all of these hijinks we'd love to have you are next. Trivia spotting is october the eighth another friday night seven. pm central time and tickets will be on sale soon. In fact by the time you hear this they they may even be on sale.

"Cut of zuhdi went to oxford wherever naturally human beings translating that. But you were. it was such disdain. My guess is didn't come from money and your school friends. Never let you forget which means at school by the grace of someone else's charity and the chip on your shoulder and since you. I thought about me rent often. That's what i'd say. All you expect even that line later where she says. I sized you up the moment. We met a great line because she's referring literally to. I know your jacket size. I picked it out perfectly but of course she knew exactly who he was the moment she met him. And that's kinda bonds trick with everyone. He meets right. They even talk about that a little bit. But you believe it with her you believe it with eva greens portrayal of vesper lynn well and it's a great deconstruction or rethinking. I should say because as you said this isn't just like trying to take down the previous bond movies but it's a rethinking of all those exchanges with the bond girls that are just these kind of surface level double entendre says and here. They kinda dance around the possibility of that. But what do they do they do. What this bond has been doing all throughout they mostly get down to business really what they need to achieve on their mission acknowledging the electricity in the air. That might be between them. Yeah absolutely and we talked about some of ways. The movie surprises us. And all of the ways that this bond feels so different. What's the car we see him. Pull up in the i go. Movie doesn't comment on it or dwell on. I'm pretty sure he's driving a ford. I might be we all watching it. All of us were like what is he driving. But he's the edge where you're like. I did ford like pay a ton and they just picked the wrong car or mesa doesn't pay. It doesn't really underlined it just kind of plays it as if it were it does a bmw or something or a jaguar. No i believe it might be a fart now. He does at one. Point order a ball injure champagne. And i think the two previous bond movies. We've talked about for our patriotic members. Gold nine the living daylights. I think both bond orders bolivar so that felt like a little bit of a safe nod to past james bond films. But there's another fun moment. That surprises us. Josh in the car that helps show us the relationship and the banter these two characters have. Where doesn't he say that her alias. Is stephanie broad chest. And she's like. Oh yeah yeah. And she's like no it is it come on and tries to grab it from him and he won't shore and that's kind of throwaway line except it is funny. I think it does as i said. Reinforce the chemistry between them but also we're so used to that we're so used to hearing the name of the female villain or whatever it is and it's something like zenia on top from from goldeneye in here. It's it's a joke. It's a wink. It's a wink at the audience that we're going to allow for the fact that almost every james bond film has one of these absurdly named sexual inspired names for women that's going to sort of reduce them to objects and this movie just does it differ way. Does it in a way that actually make sense for these two characters and the moment every step of the way. It manages to nod to the franchise. It's a apart of in its own manner without completely deflating. What came before. It's it's really a deft piece of work when you consider all the weight that it had on it as the new bond for a new era. It's really impressive.

"Feel like we're watching him be formed while at the same time and this may take us in another direction but at the same time that love story that romance with best berlin also sets up for the future craig films but in a way retroactively informs other bond films that that feeling of distrust that he hasn't towards women who really complex relationship he has with women in terms of obviously being attracted to them and drawn to them in able to attract them but always kind of having on armor that he has in that vesper calls him out for. I think the way they handled the origin of bond here is is interesting. Especially when if you think about what's the last line of this movie. I think it's the only time in the film. We hear him say bond james bond instead of that feeling like a nod just sort of a oh great we got it fan service. He said the line we needed him to say it actually feels like it's summing up what this movie has been leading up to which is by the end of it we see a more formed james bond we understand his identity as a character and it makes sense for me in that final moment that he actually then states his name in that iconic way versus again just being kind of aligned that he tosses out like so many other bonds do yeah. There's thematic way to putting in there that i like. I agree and you know. Even you know other fans service moments like ordering the martini. They they kind of. There's more playful approach to that where they tease us with that. And then we think oh. Is that what they're going to do with it. And they come back with it again but only totally. Yeah i mean the way they handle. The drinks here is another way. They're having some fun with bond and all of those trope right like the i drink. He orders. I can't remember if we actually here. I couldn't hear what he orders what he's drinking but it's definitely not a totally different drink. Martini shaken not stirred and then later when he orders a drink during the poker scenes. He makes a drink that he calls the vesper. And then finally that moment where okay. We're going to get the martini. I think the bartender says something. Like shaken or stirred and craig's line is something like does it look like i care right. Yeah and and so it. Is it away a kind of dismissal of that line. We don't get the satisfaction of it if you got the satisfaction of it from watching previous bond films he's not going to deliver it the way that you've seen other bonds do but also it makes sense in that moment like this is the thing we talked about. Golden another episode. I don't want to really get into it. But one of the things i found annoying about it is the way it seemed like they wanted to. Just give some gentle nods to the past like. Oh we'll have him driving an old aston martin so everyone watching can go. Oh it's like what. Sean connery drove their little moments like that sprinkled throughout goldeneye. That just seem like kind of fan service in the simplest way and that this movie had the courage to take one of those iconic lines and not give us that satisfaction but also have tied. The character like the line. He delivers in that moment. Is absolutely what that character would say and i feel like they found ways to either integrate those tropes those motifs in a way that made more sense for the character and didn't feel shoehorned in or they found ways to not shoehorn them in but that allowed them to challenge your expectations. Yeah when he says that about the martini. It's because he's he's focused on something else. It goes back onto instrument says so it fits there and it's yeah it's tricky. You know tricky dialogue we get i think the screenplay is tricky in a lot of ways now want to return to what you were saying about his relationship with women so the screenplay written by neal purvis robert wade and paul haggis. I appreciate it what it was doing. I remember even the first time. No six how. It was admitting that yes. This is a character who has historically kind of hated women. If you look at it if you really kinda peel it back and that was here this time. But i also wondered if they were pulling off this really convenient elaborate trick that gibbs bond moving forward a license to hate women and that's because you know betrayed so it's something that was done to him that made him have this relationship. Then here's the trick. They pull was blackmailed into it. So exactly her fault. It's not vesper lynn's fault that he now has this. You know psychological relational dysfunction and so we come out of casino royale in this place. That i don't know we should necessarily be which is like okay. I understand why bond hates women and and it's it's definitely more psychologically complex. Yes but it. Also you talked about a retrofitting all those films it also in a way reaches back and lets them off the hook in a way that i don't know if i've been tirelessly comfortable with so so it's just more. I had more of a conflict or conflicted feelings about that. Whole storyline as much as i admire all the hoops there jumping through and the deafness with which they do it that i didn't know six. I guess i can't have it both ways if i'm going to say that. That's one of the strengths of the origin story. Element is that it in a way. Does retroactively inform viewing of other bond films. I would say. I still think there's enough of a split and there was so much work being done is we've touched on a great detail to distance itself or to create this new type of bond that. I didn't feel so much josh that it was maybe trying to let those old dinosaurs off the hook. I think the trick of it though is what you said. It's that bond. Here is very clearly betrayed. And so it's it's a cause and effect where then you go. Well then that explains his mistreatment of women or we should allow that because look at how hurt he was but since it wasn't her choice. What that does is put bond in a complex situation where he is clearly furious and he will always be angry with her for how he got taken along for the ride. I think that might drive it more than just about anything. But it doesn't change the fact that he was betrayed. And so what. I mean is that's the complexity the complexity is that his whole life. He will always know that. That woman didn't mean to betray him if you will. But he doesn't change the fact that feels the same short if feels the same way no matter what their intentions were. So you will always have an inherent mistrust a little bit of a disdain. And i think that that's that's more layered and nuance than obviously anything. We get is your previous louis. Bond installment in there other touches along those lines that are worth talking about. You mentioned one of them. It's really noticeable. That he's the eye candy here more than any of the women him. Walking out of the water not ursula andress. Not halle berry him. Walking out of the water in the bathing suit and us gazing at him is saying. Yeah this is a new world this new bond. We're gonna look at his his body and we're gonna take that in and maybe that's not what the average bond moviegoer was really expecting when they went to casino royale. I like that. I love the fact that when he uses dimitrius his wife to get information. He doesn't even sleep with her. Josh remember he orders the room service and he bolts for miami. It's the of of not carrying how the martinez made because that was the point of that moment right. That wasn't the point. He is just using her. she's a means to an end. The end is to fort. Whatever this plot is and he's got to get to miami right away any other bond film almost.

Show directing goldeneye as well and just the level of filmmaking in the action scenes there so so it's definitely a strong point for casino royale but as far as cray goes you use the word pray and that is so key because you know bond has chased bad guys quite often throughout the franchise but mostly i feel like it's about bond escaping coming up with ingenious ways to get away not in this movie in this movie he's the pursuer he's going after the pray and i think that's almost the case in every sequence from the the opening one where he we see taking two guys out. He's an assassin. We don't think of james bond as an assassin even though that's absolutely what the character is and casino royale rubs our noses in it right away. Yeah craig is by far the most physical bond and that could be in a number of ways it could be the physicality you're talking about in the action scenes. It's also the physicality i mean. How much beefcake do we get here. He comes out of the ocean in skimpy suit twice. I think twice and there are other scenes where the camera just kind of lingers on his body him yes bond as a physical specimen so that is unique as well. You mentioned the relentlessness. You know what came to mind for me in that sequence for construction site brother ones as well. He's a lot like robert patrick's t. One thousand in terminator two the way he runs the way i thought of it to john day power and just the idea and you see this the fear that you see in the eyes of the people. He's after that nothing is going to stop him. He's not going to stop until someone seriously hurt. So i do think that craig is yes. It's a complete reinterpretation of the character but overall. I think that's in line with what the movie wants to do. What what really. I think makes this bond stand apart from the others. It's is its insistence on taking place in a real ugly violent dirty world. And i was looking back at my original review when i was writing for the naperville sun and i don't know if this was me or listener front of the show. Wendy fax weber my editor at the time but the title my review was bond begins because this is a year after batman begins and it struck me as working in a similar vein where that nolan batman. A big part of it was what was thrilling about it was that it was giving us a batman who could possibly exist in the real world We touched on this during our christopher nolan overview and you could imagine the the punches were just a little harder in that movie and you could imagine someone like this. Bruce wayne actually developing into batman. And i think that this casino royale is also trying to put us in a similar place. Here are these fantastic iconic characters that we're used to seeing doing things that you normally only imagine in the movies but this time you could imagine being around the corner not in your life but maybe this this other life that might just be out there in the shadows and so i think the interpretation at craig brings to bond scriptwriting that wants to emphasize that is completely in line with with a movie that wants to be as close as bond could get to the real world. Yeah we did not know each other at all in two thousand six but we shared brain. Because as i look back at my notes. I also talked about the way. The movie seems like it does a little something to nolan's madman begins from the prior summer giving us this darker more realistic take on a familiar character and giving us the back story. That is another element here. Josh that i really liked about casino royale just how it pulled off an origin story without that feeling like that's really ultimately all they were trying to do with the movie. You know there are so many sequels we see now that decide to take that angle and show us that that origin and really the the fun and sometimes the angst of watching those movies is just in kind of watching the ways. It fits the puzzle pieces together. That doesn't at all feel like what they're trying to do with casino royale. It's not about them. Giving you all of these clues to who bond really is telling you how he got the way he is and yet it does accomplish that right in the sense that it. It shows us a man who we talked about that opening sequence. I love everything about that. Opening scene i love the way enter cuts that more violent showdown like we touched on his first kill. I like everything about his quips. During that scene the final line yes considerably in the way he delivers it. I liked the black and white. I like the expressionistic angles of it. That are something that i haven't seen in another bond film so it gives us bonds origin but only by giving us how he became a double-o it just gives us that little slice we get to see the first two people he ever kills which. I don't think we ever knew or had any sense. Maybe they made up for this film. I don't think we had any senses. Bond viewers that. That's what distinguished you as a double. Oh so it's giving us something kind of interesting about his backstory..

"Bong but to become a double. Oh it takes two. How did he die. Your contact not well. Why second is yes. What an installment in a long running movie franchise gets things right. You tend to know it right away. Consider casino royale. The twenty-first james bond film in the eon productions series released in two thousand six and starring. For the first time as bond daniel craig the first thing we notice the mgm columbia studio logos are in black and white intriguing though not the most radical thing in the world then the movie itself starts still monochrome starker darker recalling something more like nineteen sixty. Five's the spy who came in from the cold than pierce brosnan's immediately preceding couple of pictures to say nothing of octopussy in this first seen bond has the jump on trader waiting for him in his office. The mole is played by a snide malcolm sinclair in their tense exchange. We learned to surprising things. This bond has just been promoted to double o. seven. He's recently made his first kill a brutal bathroom beating. That's fed to us in snippets during the conversation with the ruthlessness that cuts the scene. Short bond commits his second kill as sinclair sits on armed at his desk. Cut back to that bathroom. Where bond spins round to deliver the lethal bullet to the first skill and the screen narrows around him in the series iconic gun. Barrel shot familiar but also thrillingly different in two thousand six. I was mostly indifferent about james bond. Atom bond was a relic from childhood which i regarded with nostalgic affection as a daily film reviewer. The run of pierce brosnan movies had begun to feel like professional obligations then casino royale and i was back on board. Still am after this revisit which was particularly interesting coming on the heels of the other bonds. We've been watching and discussing unpatriotic sean connery's from russia with love roger. Moore's the spy who loved me timothy dalton's the living daylights and pierce brosnan's goldeneye compared to those entries. Adam what would you say is the most distinguishing characteristic not only of craig's bond but of casino royale whole I don't even know where to start with that question. It's such a good one. But there are so many aspects to craig's bond. I think we could start with and actually this movie was reviewed back on film spotting in two thousand six sam was our host then co host josh. Not just our producer so he sat across from as i recall. We both were fans of this movie. And both fans of craig. I look back at my notes from that conversation. And i said this is just kind of funny talking about fifteen years later. I suggested that he is a more believable. Interesting complex bond which we need in two thousand six so bringing bond into i guess what i was thinking of the modern era our our current time thousand six well in twenty twenty one. I think that's as true as ever if not more true and you're right that everything about that opening sequence sets the table for setting up a new take on this character. I like the way you phrased it familiar yet. Thrillingly different this idea throughout and we'll talk about a lot of these aspects. I think there are many ways that the movie decides to subvert our expectations bond. But it doesn't do it in a way where it seems like. That's the glee of it. That that's the purpose or the intent of the movie. Let's have as much fun as we can. With this relic. Let's thumb our nose at the series. No it's not about thumbing your nose it is about establishing this new character and maybe we'll get back to that opening sequence a little bit more later. I wanna talk about craig and answer your question as best i can. I think the most significant difference with craig versus all the other bonds is that the movie establishes him as quote unquote a blunt instrument which is apparently how fleming originally thought of james bond again. I'm not familiar with the source material. And it's not something that's informing at all my take on bond or on craig's bond but that that phrase and i think m may even refer to him as that or very clearly suggest that's what he is. That is something different than that kind of very debonair. Very smooth bond. We have always seen there. Is something just a little grittier a little more dangerous a little scarier a little more human or a lot more human about craig's bond than the other ones we've seen including going back to when we talked about from russia with love and connery is just really leaning into the movie star aspect like bond. Is this movie star. Figure in the movie knows. It's kind of winking at us throughout. I'll give you a couple of examples and there are so many we could talk about the distinguish this van from others. But in that opening chase sequence the big set piece that starts with them getting the phone ellipse and just destroying that entire construction zone right there few moments that really stand out to me that clearly martin campbell. The director wants us to pay attention to and their moments like the one where we see the guy he's chasing who's very fleet of foot and is very athletic and is able to jump from one perch atop some construction zone onto some other landing and when he does it. It's perfect everything about. It's perfect in bonn does it. He stumbles and he. He's barely able to hang on and has to pull himself up when he jumps over a wall unlike the other guy who just kind of like a cheetah jumps over it he of course is a little bit more human. He's still james bond. He's still incredible physical specimen that's the other real defining characteristic of craig's bhatt obviously but when he jumps over he kinda comes down with a thud and then has to start running again right or he just brakes right through the wall. And that's the other one. That's that's the best example to support my case right where they're running through this building that's under construction and the guy he's chasing somehow manages to just kind fly through an opening and the next thing we see is bond chasing after him and he just goes right through it. He doesn't have time to mess around..

"Like in licensed to kill. Then give her his art then. The seven of hearts shown the gun sight in front of the card and two bullets fly from through card from the rea- towards the hulda. All us. why. Why is that. We could tell. The bullet pays for back to food. Because of the jagged edges not smooth edges facings Why costa to house our right before the number seven biking Dabo seven that my signal. That things will be confusing for seven and not straightforward. Though he cites might be targeting. The agents bullets flying at him and perhaps he's not in control a the mission vesper. He's dedication to i six or all of it. This is the reason. I think we see. The bullies pacing the rear towards holder. We decided in front. It's clever. I think it's simpler than that. We talk about the fact that the gun barrel sequence moved from the beginning to into the movie and casino royale here. we also don't have the two dots that we get from the earlier bond movies because normally it opens with the two dots. I think this is just simply away for them to get the two dots in and a different way and cleverly making double o seven i agree. I think the key here is which way are the bullets flying. That's that's really the key. Yeah it's 007 had to get double o seven in there. It's pretty cool. And but the way they did it with the bullets flying towards us and towards him. I think that's the key that's the difference in in pretty damn clever for what he said. I think she tried the double. Oh seven on the card here brilliantly morphs into a computer screen with bond 007 status confirmed on the screen. He got his to kills redundant. Okay we saw him get both skills in the pre title even mentioned that it was the second kill as a story immediately following dryden's kale tyler timelines sketching bond movies. Yeah that's true continuity and timeline sir. We've not seen much bonds real face..

"As we take a gamble getting daniel craig's first outing as bond in as we look at the free title and title sequences of casino royale. Let's go we will dive into both the pre title and title sequences for casino royale because they're inextricably connected with the pre title. Being a flashback and the title sequence really a clever foreshadowing of what will happen in this mission. So let's do it first. Casino royale was the first in fleming. James bond novel written first published in one thousand nine fifty three. So we are seeing a reboot of the james bond saga here going back to the first novel and the novel in which james bond gets his double-o status shot completely in black and white. This pre title sequences spectacular audiences cheered when the movie was first released in two thousand six and we hear now. Shooting in black and white was brilliant. It's a flashback to win. And how bond achieved his double status. We know that achievable status. Yeah they have at least two kills. This pre title sequence as a flashback shows us the two kills and in magnificent style. Yeah i think it's fascinating the way they use the black and white for this open and not just the pre title itself but it starts with the mgm and columbia logos. I think they did a great job with that because it says this one's different. We're going back in time. And the flashback. Let us know we're going back in time and it didn't take us a little bit back in time. It took us all the way back to the first time we see an actor playing james bond in the one thousand nine hundred fifty four. Cbs tv show climax. That was they did casino. Royale that was black and white barry nelson playing james bond. So this is a reboot or starting all over. Take a back to the beginning and let's go. Yeah that's brilliant choice a good point with the mgm and the columbia logos. Because i was kind of ignoring that trying to get to the pre title sequence all the time and so that was good. It was a great scene so well again. It's what i love is ties back to the tv show in one thousand nine hundred four in black and white and all concept of him writing it in fifty three and kind of like black and white tv and stuff. that's nice. it's a good point. It's great so this pre title sequence scene opens with a car pulling up to a building on a cold's nowy street in prague. It's nighttime and the steam. Rising from the sewer grates the the streetlights the building lights it all adds to the intrigue and immediately piques our interests a love it. The man gets out of the vehicle. You looks around. And then he enters the building taking an elevator lift up to the sixth floor. The scene looks dark and foreboding. We do not know who this guy is what he's doing or why he's entering the building. Here at night is just the way it is eight. A great establishing shot. he cries out film noir. Each was conceived by the director of photography film. My hugh who wanted one to do something different and to even not to those spy movies of all it really entices or the audience..

"I don't even need my bowl or whatever but this is but this this torture sequence my god my god man allies know. You'd really done. You don't need the people's lies with knotted run. Yeah data shade that drills into your memories or whatever that's right disappointing stuff but actually i wanted to talk about the specifically this torture because it was taken from the book So it does leave out a moment. Where la- shaef cuts bonds back. So he blades on the floor and rats are in a feeding frenzy underneath the chair. I think it is a bit much you know. I think there's enough going on in that room focused on the naked man in the chair. The guy with the blading. I and the ripe. Yeah so you really need this front. Yeah it's good movie. I think furious rats just gilding the lily at this. I also love the banza. Drink is spiked like it. Looks like just a low budget student. Anti-drug pay it's just like everything slide had to focus whoa Freaking out man. Oh but this little things like he grabs the salt in the automation. And it's just probably shelled for good luck. Good luck have a heart attack. This will get me through you. Ready for a licensed trivia mice. Yeah for sure you got other things that you want to say look miscellaneous notes the absolute timbo that he's casa. You know the guy you know the the his hand up to his e that just that just just a just a beautiful early two thousands man just just working his way through my sick somehow. Hope he's doing all right. That guy drinking that snake got him. Yeah good look. This'll probably be law. We'll save for the trivia. That's right Chuck it in what i've just gordon. He and nothing has ever looked more like a set than the construction yards set in venice. Yes unless that israel now they they built a to then sink pretty good stuff. Actually there is something i wanted to ask you about. Is this the best dressed. Daniel craig james bond all good quest- because i know you have opinions about these tiny little suits which we might save. I think it is personally just because the point of the literary bond is that he is not so much expensively dressed as ease inconspicuously dressed like like of the era yet but also that he looks the way he does to blend in to farm like. He wears a suit or tuxedo when he needs to Anyways casual clothes when he needs to. Yeah like the raisin bond in the books wears a suit is because he's supposed to be a businessman in the in the fifties and sixties and that's how they dressed nothing but i think that that evolved into like bonzo is the most these always the most fabulously dressed man in the room. And it's like you have a good watch. No he's got the best watch. Yeah yeah actually. Actually but i mean lindy hemming who is the The costume designer of this movie. And i think every bond movie from goldeneye to this movie. She also did the costumes for the nolan batman. Movies all the things. I think she does a great job. And this is like sort of setting that out. Yeah it's good because some good casual attire. Yeah benepe anez. There's the movies. Progressive suits get spoiler in sola. Yeah maybe he gets out he made. Yeah it's a very dangerous van dog. Grandma's what's up all right. Do you notice time for though. isn't it. it's lessons to trivia. Oh seven something nice daniel. Craig quit smoking. I thought that was the whole trivia. Daniel craig oh yes now. This is done. You grab another thought about his wardrobe. I mean he has that she's like sucks and you look uncomfortable. And she gives him an even better suit is like this is a good suit might measurements and she's like on an amazing. It's pretty good classical. Also classic example of nominative determinism in the hemming became a costume designer. Oh very good pretty fun right that these pretty farm right. My real last name is average youtube video. Not the editing van and lawrence incredible trivia. Aa seven time. I said daniel craig quits. My real last name is sometimes. I do half joking then. The video editors like a full. Go that's my last night. I love daniel craig. Quit smoking to get into shape. Originally economy back on the gas. I think side because originally james bond smoked sixty cigarettes a day. This is interesting. The bulk in which is a lot. Except when you consider that he's not real and he can really smoke as many as he wants and it also was like the fifties smoked five hundred cigarettes a day for millionaires joy. British press alike. Daniel craig isn't smoking. Five hundred cigarettes diabetes. Johnny like james blonde. So it's a bulk admixture. He this is obviously from the books with a high nicotine. Content and the cheap varieties also. He's average daily. Consumption of alcohol is in the region of half a bottle of spirits. So that's some fun stuff because a lot of the books that just like anyway. He smoked this kind of sierra. And then they'll just be a whole lot of wild world when you could just you got your own blend of cigarette tobacco. Just popping down the cervo. Just get a pack of winnie red. Barry's might spark about hafa. Goma lada yeah. It never forget a lot. Just outside like the ocean club i made. You're gonna you're gonna space cigarette gonna stop the international terrorist finance back schaefer. Our produces bob rupp broccoli. J. wilson didn't secure the rights to casino royale into two thousand when sunny exchanged them. All can i just spiderman. That's right what a man who do you think of the better deal definitely brought him in uttar present. I mean it's it's huge. You can't really lose. Because what are they going to do with one. Bond murph stir yeah one another rebuff casino royale movie yes put all the safe carell put stay grind off. Save corral and letty seth rogan's fine whatever that one who is offering that era zuma's in all school. Yes only other actor. Apparently who was in serious contention. A bunch of names came up. I including hugh jackman who has since come out and said that. He passed on whether he was officially offered but he saw that. We're doing with the previous ones. And he's like no. Thank you van housing whether you're going to do something different. And they like having decided yet do something different than bad movies. Don't look sure yet won't cost them. It was henry cavill but he was considered too young because he was on the twenty two at the time. I feel like that would be more age appropriate. Because eva grain at the time would have been twenty five cents. Yep absolutely it also broke a record for the most cobb barrel rolls in a film assisted by an air cannon. Oh do you know that did not. Yeah you probably with this. I win british airways showed this movie on the airline. They blood out the tail that showed virgin atlantic the logo virgins exactly. We were very upset at the time in theaters. Now that's not true mason. Oh i've had sex before. I and i may have had bad. You wanna get this video monetize doing and they also cut the richard branson kamiar which you because he gets frisk at the airport show but that guy's actually never been through a metal detector because he doesn't it is an interesting so casino royale. You probably know. This was called that in france but in the us it's nine as casino. Quarter it did. It's terrific stuff is a reward sir. Roger moore doubting any of these honestly so roger ball reportedly seller impressed with this movie that he went out and bought a dvd of it. Like a bird leg like a suitcase filled with you. That's right just there are a lot. Vcd's the camden markets. He got himself. That's one that was filmed in the theaters. See this in the theaters raja. No no definitely. Not this. What i joy because i think it speaks to james bond of the cocteau so during the showdown of the final hand. The poker game. James bond does not reveal these cards until all the other place of showing the hands even though he knows that he holds the best possible hand in this situation. So he intentionally whited to robin it in right and this is got an official title in polka coal the slow roll and whilst it's not against the rules it's considered very bad etiquette all would be critiqued harshly in a real world game because he's a dog because he's a bad guy but i mean the alternative is he kills you all so you know which one are you gonna take..

"If that bug capsizes he should drown. Yeah it was all of those seeds. Add they he's the shortest james bond. I think he's like five ten which you can't tell. Also he'd kill every other james bond video of that. It's definitive i remember ida. Uk friend tell me he didn't like him because he looks like a polish plumber. You know because he's not like i guess traditionally handsome jonah main. He's better looking than ninety nine percent of people on the flat but but yeah people didn't like him. But i think very quickly i think when the when the first footage came out of all of this and just the white. He looks the shape that he got into yards. Like calm down. This is this is actually going to be when i did the when they did. The as i mentioned soula andress emerging from the from the from the ocean at the bates. Yeah when his little space. Does i think people like. Yeah like james Bona james bond for the british press. Said you know what's interesting about this movie. This he smiles more Like he smalls an astounding amount in this movie and then never again for the rest of the series like this like when you when you watch this you realize that this particular story just broke whatever humanity. He had let stroz. He's always like he's been he's smiling. He's being friendly to you. Know to hotel staff. He's also a little off with sometimes not too grabby mean. It's a little bit grabby but not in the traditional james bond said. let's run. i mean again. He is awful but yeah you know you're right. It kind of does a good job of just ringing out. The last sets of happiness in this man. I guess until we get to. We get to spector. I guess but it sells it as well as this does. How do you feel about the action in this. I mean what's fascinating to me about it. I sorry stepped on your question that i asked but here we go. Here's what i think. What do you think about this thing. He's what i think so a lady. Two seconds of the counterarguments lot of a lot of people who help me the born formula or fighting the born ula. They crossed the line. So you know of the camera operation so you lose track of who so. This doesn't do that like for example a moment in a stairwell where they tumbling and fighting and you follow the action the entire time. How do you feel about the action. These two seconds. That's good that's good well. Is there any like particular moment that stood out like the pock. All coach is through the construction of that famous. Paku guy. yeah. I think yeah. That's that's sequence. Is great as my of. I think you know there are many great moments in. I think i'm not alone in thinking. One of them is the moment where the The bombmaker goes to shoot bond realizes out of bullets throws the gun and then bond catches it like it is literally nothing. He looks just like an exhausted man in an office. Who's been asked to repair the photocopier. For like the third time this week and it's just like even my job and then you just pitch. It's so funny it's really. There's also a moment in in that way. The paku guy leaps baria and then launches runs through it like an angry gorilla doesn't even know what's on the other side says this is probably drywall. Could've made up a pool fully shot. He doesn't care that's exactly it. Also i love the pot when they go to the number two embassy and he just wrecks that diplomat this this pencil pusher just pulls a gun on him and he just he just wreck sieve like three ways in one second. It's so funny it's like everybody's just doing the job and they just stayed through like an escape gorilla from the zone throwing people about a love it. This is also an action sequence in this. Because i'd say that i'd completely forgotten. And that was the sacred to the airport. It goes for quite a long time. Yup had has quite a satisfied. Where the bombmaker guy ends up destroying himself and Elicits another little. Small from bond iceland absolutes. I can. he's loved it. He's never been happy. I think another thing this movie does. Well is the inclusion of vespas. I think with these characters of the bond women they'll bring him in and they just often and not always there are exceptions. They don't do much or they're written widely and pulley and they just kind of there to kind of betray bond which doesn't end up happening. Yeah or not. Yeah and but this is a lot of like nuance. And there's a lot of chemistry is a lot of chemistry. There's a lot of kind of more naturalistic dialogue with like you know. The light of brosnan bonds are just like just a series of like pickup lines. Just just flying back and forth. But i is a moment where bond and vesper made on the train and he just point blank stares at. Dan says you don't think this is a very good plan. Do you like no. Why would it. It seems like a stupid plan that would be in a spy novel in the fifties. Too stupid plan my stupid man. Just a pled for idiots. Well let's talk about the plaid because he wants to. Basically bankrupt la- shave. He doesn't want to. he wants to murder everyone. The czar. that's best the next best thing is i m. I want to bankrupt the sheaf so that he will sort of run into the had the the the whiting arms of mix can get all the information on his sort of terrorist clients which respect up not yet of legal restrictions currently it is unknown harassed organization. Exactly kebe day. That's so that's and i just think. Terrorists big dole cold go. I just think it's also really bald to describe fuck it. You're watching forty minutes of poker and to be fair. It's broken up with the like fistful. That's an a heart attack accession and so forth but you know they put in a card game at it absolutely works and i think like solar for example. I think you'd kind of with this idea but didn't quite commit to automate. Yeah look if. I have one criticism of the the movie casino. That's not back. Iraq like the original book. Was it back a guy. I'm going to let the is critique. Your pronunciation of that is a pronounced barack obama. Yes okay. But i think it's just you know they used texts holdem poker at the time because that was super hostile at that moment but i just feel like is it. The guy standing there going so discount. That's exactly what it is. He has also everybody. And this is every james bond movie. Everybody always has the best cards. Yeah it every had which is very unlikely. I mean i could win with those cards. I just had the best cons. Yeah but you wouldn't stroke. It'd be like i'm panicking splitting for bizarre. What does that even made shouldn't have guy at school. He's backed yeah. So what's james bond's tale. Does he just not tell by. Guess he's just like an easter island statue. I guess he's tell is he's not murdering anybody currently at the table. Yeah also once you give him a heart attack. All these like visible ticks all over the place. You don't know what's real and what's not and that's something. I actually wanted to talk about i. He's a fragile man. Despite being enormous you seem at moments like tend to his wounds as mentioned he has that heart attack often torture and extreme like physical conditions. I shrugged off.

Worry if you don't like them just skip it we'd care and maybe we'll put in some snippets from the movie. No time to die. Just rip it off. The internet just put just put them in there just a legal clips of just just brakes a bunch of copyright laws. We won mgm to come at us because we know that your company will fall apart again and we will amazon nail. What are you gonna sick that line lawns gotta be one hundred years old or this one that long talents labor. Like if you could. I just want to give it a little bit of a background to this movie. If you don't mind lease so bond was very much on the way out. After diana the date we have looked at the brosnan series of people doing a check. Those out diamond faces. Yup british men. They've got they're wearing electrical suits invisible. Cards orcas oh my god place and then of course. That movie came out at a similar time. To the jason born franchise and everybody went. Just do that can we. And that's what we do take a popular thing and then we do it slightly lighter than that thing and sometimes it works a treat. Yeah and sometimes people go That's just the dock nod isn't it but that's not that's not this week the story of a guy that's right. So interestingly enough piece rosen and he was initially asked back all of this movie. Although die another day wasn't a good movie. It did break a lot of record box office wise last movie. That's right. i'm one worst movie time. Big bed movie and so they thought listen. We need to kind of raise the bar in terms of spy movies. It's not a bad gadgets. And a man just a very drunk man in his early fifties stumbling about a the automate. It's right that that's that's throwing god-like these bras that. I shouldn't have said that you like him. When he's got he's saying santa's bid saying well so they also would have to have paid him thirty million dollars plus royalty and look they went. We know this is clearly. It's time to go in another direction and this movie despite coming out four years after another day. It's like this a million years between these two movies show. Yeah yeah how much about this. Do you enjoy all of it. Yeah five or ten won't fill up. Sign my thing. yeah. I mean to be. I haven't seen some or any of the dalton movies saying every giant bond movie multiple times and yet this one my favorite except of course for the nineteen sixties casino royale. Yes david niven. God you brought that up. Who else is in that he to sell to sell. Isn't that other people people. We want nine other comedians of the day. That are dead unforgotten. Yeah alright pay and the soula andrews is in it from dr nausea. Really as that character doesn't matter. So i think though this nile soy much it nails the recast of james bond niles theme song it. I think it's my favorite theme song. I think you disagree with me on that script ones obviously nine hundred sixty s version of casino royale which seven james ball casino. Royale went to save the gallon win. The white went to say the weather in the casino royale. It doesn't matter that's how the actual guys is well. They're just like do you want another take. Not they all change the name of james. We're really back to cover. The nineteen fifty s episode of the american tv series climax. Point is at the moment. Jimmy bond is loved jimmy. Vaughan yeah we could definitely do that. I didn't know until recently performed live. Breif right braven bald. So i think it dials bringing back. Judi dench doesn't work in terms of like the continuity of the series. This is a reboot. The other james bond's the ones that are you know technically owned by the same company. It's the same guy. Saw me sort of well. I mean it is the site director as golden on mont campbell. They brought him back to reboot in the brosnan era. And then i brought him back back such a good idea. Yeah and i guess you know. I imagine judy dench being in this was a case of she worked so well in the previous yes but also might have been just like come on campbell like the last time so we like to. I think the villain is terrific. If a little abrupt in the way that he's dispense stove he's got a blading on asthma puffer so he's not bullied in high school. He's back and he's he's got a road three and i also think it is. It does the best version of coal. We've ever said in a movie with maybe the exception of punishable sign. Yeah which is more done for a gag but so the code open of this. It's james bond getting his double o license and the idea is that the s to kill two people to get that one. He brutally murders in a bathroom and the second one. He casually shoots at the desk. And the guys like you know. It's quite it's quite difficult to kill a man. This is killed so many people to buy it like with these bare heads. Almost certainly right. I think so. It's just off the books. Yes because to get a double o. Status you have to be assigned to kill two people right. You can't just be like no you can't do it on your house. Got to be like yeah. I was in a boffon and kill those two guys. Can i double annapolis. I what i like about the same. When he kills the section shave dryden is when dryden's already dead bodies flung over his his desk. You can see the little picture of his wife and kids. Yep on the desk. And i'm like boy this gentleman. Don't care about nothin' yeah. And he looks at the camera and he goes. That's right nick mason. I doubt you call my lettuce in order to like it would've snuck in the office taken. Dryden's gone out of his and saying that picture and they like the pay slightly better so as well. What i like about this version of bond. And he's not everybody's fiber. But i think he might be mine. Bond has always bane the worst. The and i made like. He's using kwaidan country as a thinly veiled excuse to murder people. I think like roger moore is probably the exception. Because he's like the nicest. I guess but from time to time. That's odd. yeah but daniel craig. This version is just so transparently. Awful which is what. I think james bond is like at his call. He's awful and this guys. Just james bond with no finesse. That's what i like about it. But you probably know about the controversy surrounding the costing of this of this particular actor. James belonged blow the my lettuce. British press would not happy with the yarn for their all getting anything ryan but yeah i remember i remember. There was the some footage of daniel craig as bond and he was he was on a boat. And they're we're gonna. We're gonna i think drive up the tim zeke revealed and we're going to and then he was going to use that underwater. Both tomorrow never dies. Maybe yeah and and you know. Present him to the press but of course safety purposes he had to wear a little life jack of resources which i never like this man's a cow he should have to drown for a movie..

"Yeah i think most fans would agree with that. And i he said i'm gonna go out having a british background too. Yeah and i think it tells the crucial video grounds although fleming because he likes sean connery so much when he wrote the last couple of things. He gave them a scottish background. Quintessentially english gentlemen in any ways. James bond in effect really has doesn't have an english background. He's right he's a swift scottish. He's not english at all. Yeah which is why he retreats the sky fall. You know so. Yeah so that was fleming's nod to Sean connery which he he. We didn't like in the in the first doctor. No when he was feeling like us.

"Of course yes mission. Impossible movies and they were really setting a new standard in early. Two thousand four action cinema and bond. I think it was really getting to catch up with casino. Royale follows diana today. The first of the craig's films and it's an origin story That's something we've never had. The i write novels fleming rhode and really it was just that recent recently that they got the rights to do productions the rights to casino royale. Remember the spook having. Yeah whenever it was had been gone now. They got him so. Yeah yeah yeah. Ian fleming sold the rights Independently separately yeah way back in the nineteen fifties and there was actually a tv version native as nineteen fifty four. Mary nelson yeah arrest. So what so. They were quite excited to get the rights back because it was the first novel. Your first stephen fleming james novel i think that was also a reason why the producers just started to go in a completely direction. Hire new actor who he is as you probably remember will was a very controversial choice at the time He's not a conventionally. Handsome fellow in many ways ever charismatic. As is used as an actor little shorter than we're used to as well and launder on here is that was controversial. But the key thing the key takeaway with casino royale was very much reinvention of the bond formula. It's very much an origin story. Very much in the manner of christopher nolan's batman so two thousand and five number that in the whole black and white credit sequence in casino royale is really very much. heavily influenced like different than two thousand five batman film which was itself in origin story. Right and casino begins begins his five arc. it's going to culminate with no time to die. This films had some issues getting out absolutely. Yeah exactly exactly but with casino. Royale introduced to things that i think are really quite key to the craig era. One is that it provided bond with his tragic orphan. Back story that it's played out through all four of the craig's we've seen so far right it is also and i think this is the influence of Born in mission impossible it also introduced a grittier more grounded sensibility. Yes back to the bombing roots. Yeah i mean that's how fleming yeah. Yeah but they also did something else. That really isn't present in fleming. At least i would argue this. And it's certainly not very prison in the earlier pre- craig on films and that is. They introduced a more emotional more. Psychologically realistic yes. James bond yes and that is very interesting. I very much applaud them in their choice of doing that. Not how successful. That has been as we've seen it through the four films we've seen so far is a very interesting question and i think. Open to debate..

The Walther PPK, the classic spy gun that changed the game

"Let's start off with one of the iconic pieces of technology. That james bond depends upon in practically every movie that's different from the novel series and the movie series but in the movies. He has a sidearm. The the vaulter or walter. Pk which is the one he carries. In most of the movies there is a point where he switches from the pk to the p ninety nine that would be in the movie tomorrow never dies and from there all the way through to casino royale. That's what he's using. But then it goes back to the p k. Now stands for police pistol detective model and you might think. Well where does the k. Come from it comes from the german word. Which is oh. Let's try this police. The police pistol criminal model. Oh boy i know. I butchered that one. Probably doing it better than i would. And and in german it is in fact pronounce vaulter. Yes yes yes. But in british and american where we say walter. It is spelled w. a. l. t. h. e. r. But the germans do not have a thaw sound. It's a it's a hard t or a d sometimes depending on what germany but at any rate so this is a very small gun which makes sense. It has to be concealable right. So it's a small gun. It's semi automatic. It's double action. It's pretty reliable. Yeah it's a often used in various law enforcement agencies throughout all of europe both the the Pdk and the p. ninety nine were and so it's one of those that you find all over the place in europe so made sets and in fact In the novels. I think he has a beretta. Originally in the first few novels he was carrying a beretta until a fan named joffrey are geoffrey boothroyd. I've clearly been watching. too much. Game of thrones wrote in recommended more appropriate weapons in nineteen fifty-six and fleming went in and made the switch and then furthermore honor jeffrey by naming q. After the character of cue up through Through the point when the original actor passed away. I was named them major. Both also you know in in the casino royal movie casino. Royale movie with Daniel craig the jumping way ahead but in that film. Apparently he is convinced to hand over his beretta to trade. Up to the vaulter cute. I don't remember that. Because i've more or less blocked that foam from my mind. I have not seen it.

Bond Girl Style, an inteview with Dr. Monica German

"Dr Drew Thank you so so much for joining us today. I have to say that I am a huge bond fan and a have been since I was a small child and I've seen all the movies more than once source super excited to see your book come out a few months ago. Congratulations thank you. Yeah but before we get to this bevy of beautiful women who have graced the bond John Franchise for more than seventy years now. I'm hoping that we can talk a little bit about the man behind the creation of the character of James Bond who was of course Ian Enflaming and he was quite personality in his own right. Am I correct. Absolutely to Ian Fleming was a Scottish man and no so many people realize that and then and bone these also a scotsman or half is called smitten anyway so many overlaps Fleming came came from an upper class background as bond climbing works in naval intelligence in the Second World War and so therefore he had that kind of background background in espionage on the secret services in the world of intelligence which excited him an interested in so a lot of the detail we found in the if we find in the novels is very much detail that came from slamming own experience director experience hope the world and the World Intelligence Fleming also was on various. He liked sports from his days at school. Due to these middle age he also enjoyed an defying things in life. Alcohol and Fine foods sounds simple foods but rich foods while and women plenty of them many affairs he was only married once but he had many affairs before jury and during the marriage it was sort of open marriage. I'm rather mia who then became enflamming. Of course it was also very interested in in experimenting in having relationships other than within Fleming. So so there's lots of overlap savage say between Ian Fleming James on that. I think that's also why people have been intrigued to find out about about the author behind the Noble Global Sin Short Stories. Yeah and I think that many of our listeners may not have known at the bond films were actually I based on the books and the he wrote thirteen books folks and also a handful of stories and in even as big a fan as I am. I didn't realize that Casino Royale was Fleming's very first book which was published in Nineteen. I'm fifty three. And of course it's most recent film on Carnation was the first of the bond series to star Daniel Craig back in two thousand twelve so your your book looks at Fleming's writings the books and the films. Several of these films like Casino Royale were adapted and produced decades AIDS after the books are written and many of the narratives in both books and the movies surrounding race and gender. Fill very problematic when we look at them today and this is something that you confront head on in your book like you do not shy away from this at all which was much appreciated. Might you give us a couple of examples of how some of the classic themes that we see in bond can be problematic today to contemporary audiences. Sure a mean first of all I also wanted to point out the Casino Royale was in fact I adopted in nineteen sixty seven and starred. They even this was not not a production by Company that's behind the bond franchise using independent company and really it doesn't count ended unobtainable Only takes teams loosely than the sense into a rather bizarre kind of plock. Let's just just for the sake of accuracy was casino royale before Daniel Craig's star in it yet but anyway going back to your question about gender and race you're Accident Erard said when you read the novels and when you see many of the particularly early Mondays you realize particularly with today's hindsight fight. I guess that's There are problematic relationships that are going on both in terms of race ending terms agenda. He when you look against the origins of bond in the nineteen fifties. This is a moment in time where Breton while Europe the world had been shaken up by the Second Second World War many changes had occurred in the social fabric particularly off Britain. The British empire was coming to a rapid end and The gender relations had been shaken up by the war as well because Women had been taking jobs. That had been laughed laughed at without men. Men were all the front. So women had to make the most difficult situation and as a result again to nineteen four- these women were out stronger in a stronger position than they were before the war so in the bombed novels and some of the earlier earlier films you do see tensions at work bond is a very conservative bigger. He represents a kind kind of masculinity that's in any way regressive already at the time of Fleming's writing it's a kind kind of masculinity that's still thinking of you know the kind of masculine heroism the would've been fueled by the world workers offers and I kinda masculinity that was still very much British upper-class and white now the the end of the war the end of the colonial venture the end of the Endel dot kind of masculinity so bond is very much the center of a world that doesn't exist anymore or a world is beginning to vanish. This strong women around him challenge is masculinity challenge gender roles through their emancipated behaviors and patterns of behavior that appear throughout novels and and the early films. Now Bunk reacts badly today's bond is to dominate women. Bolton's bonus patronizing to them Bondi's also condescending to people of color and they race relations in the books and the early films can also be rather difficult today. Just this in this day and age. Because there is a clear binary a position between bombs upper-class wind British ways and and the ways of the foreign villains the customs of the people he encounters and interact with when he's he's overseas so yes you're absolutely right. Gender and Rice are incredibly programmatic ended and the politics attached to them are difficult but nevertheless it's skewed because the nobles in the film's expose the problems that we can then discuss today right right and ultimately you you came away with this incredibly well formed argument that as you right. I'm going to quote you. Hear a scenario analysis of bond girls exposes their performance of femininity as an active challenge to sexist and racist ideologies rather than as passive victims of patriarchal imperial master's inscribed in their clothes are multiple patterns of disruption to the political foundation of bonds world. Wow Mad writer respect Monica that those who sentences pat quite the punch. But I'm hoping that you might. I establish some of the mainstream expectations of women. During Fleming's era in terms of femininity. So that that as we move on we can establish how this archetype of the bond girl really kind of stands in contrast of course so after the war women We Are we understand. Went back to SORTA fulfill they more traditional feminine roles that they had been performing before for the Second World War so there's different cycles during the twentieth century both worlds shaking up the gender roles that had. I've been in place before the war so after the nineteen forties in the nineteen fifties wage in regard. Thank you as a conservative day. Kids is they were women. Well go back to the kitchen. Go back to being homemakers family. Mothers wives Supporting their husbands in their missions. They rolled their professional careers and they're therefore even fashion. Of course you know that my book a is framed by the work of fashion as passionately. Scores Passion reflects this return to a more conservative traditional health.
