"Yeah. Last thing I'll say because I don't want this to just be too much about whether or not the film was good or not is that. I always say that the film has to give me something in order to care, and by the end of this movie, I just felt like, wow, there's a ton of questions in my head about what I just watched, but I don't give a fuck, right you know I because I feel like somebody is punishing me and asking me to go do homework rather than rather than really inspiring me and inspiring a sense of wonder, and then you know that's what I require in order to really really want to think hard and put all those puzzle pieces together like Charlie Kaufman's is clearly inviting us to do. Let's talk about the title really quick. Okay. So Real Quick Michael I. WanNa hear since you liked the movie. What was your?.

Yeah. Good to have you back. So today we're tackling the twenty twenty movie I'm thinking of ending things directed by Charlie Kaufman starring Jesse Clemens, and Jessie Buckley. At always we're going to go around and see what people thought about this movie if they have seen it twice what did you think of the first time you saw it and what was like revisiting it for this podcast I have a pretty strong reaction to this movie. So I'M GONNA go first which is not something I usually do and I gotta keep it real Hated this movie. I absolutely. I mean I I mean. I hated it so much that it actually kind of ruined my day. I thought it was relentlessly boring. I thought it was pompous. It was super pretentious. And this is strike three for Charlie Kaufman for me because. While, the first one I didn't really like Synnex. Key New York that much I like that I didn't really like anomaly. So very much I really like that. And this one is my least favorite. Did you did you like being? John, Malkovich or at love love being John Malkovich. Those movie had this movies had a sense of humor especially, Malkovich Malkovich had a sense of humor that I thought was great I Like Eternal Sunshine a lot and then there was another movie also had the most creative directors at the helm in Hollywood shirt are all yeah. I'm really good at what they do wasn't there another movie I'm there's another thing that he wrote journals on spouse mind who? Shen adaptation adaptation adaptation is the what I'm saying you liked that movie a lot. It's actually probably my favorite coffin movie. So I hate to start this on such a negative. Negative. Run but Ryan I'm really curious to see what you think of this movie. Look. All right. I'm Charlie Kaufman apologised I love the shit out of the man I think he's one of the most brilliant writers we've got and. So I. AM willing to give him the benefit of that and I loved synthetic. New York which I fully admit is not for everybody but it worked for me and you're either GonNa love this movie or you're GonNa fucking hate this movie there's no between on it and I am right with jared I fucking hated the shit out of this own. fucking off, I couldn't wait for it to be over every minute I was just sitting there. Was Charlie cop and thinking he had a shot here. He added a novel. Lisa obviously huge disaster. Financially especially. And then you'd think he'd Kinda go. All right. What did ever like my first couple movies? Why are they so accessible or they always good about them but he no, he took no lessons from that..

"Both while you at Nyu and then for years after really collaborated on a Lotta stuff together. Yeah. I knew Paul from school. I worked on a movie that he wrote that somebody else directed. I worked as a production designer on that and then I shot one of Paul's movies which which I did a terrible job on and I feel badly about it to this day not. Focus is not my strong point. So after after we graduate and then Paul graduated a year ahead of me after I graduated I approached him no pun intended about collaborating on something and we started to write together than and. We had a lot. For National Lampoon. Eventually that happened initially wrote a screenplay and then we wrote another screenplay. Then we did some small things lampooned like. They had these letters to the editor which were all fictionally started out doing those than we wrote these fictional news items and eventually we wrote. Several fiction longer fiction pieces and we wrote A play together which I actually got produced I had moved to Madison Wisconsin and we had written a play call the fat zip which got produced there at a place called the Broom Street theater and we we wrote some TV pilots together to not pilots spec scripts that we we tried to sell. Didn't have any luck getting an agent or had no idea how to do that and eventually just stopped riding together. I did come across one thing which I found interesting, which was you were saying, you know when you don't have an agent, how do you get how do you get your material before people who might WanNa make it well, you just send it around and it sounded like the one guy who actually engaged with you in a nice way was Alan Arkin. That's correct. Nobody ever responded. I i. worked at. The Metropolitan. Opera in their ticket department and I worked at the roundabout theatre. So I had to access to famous people's addresses from Rolodexes at the time and I would just copy them out and send thanks send the my scripts I sent descript. Spielberg. Ripped too Jessica Lang. Other people. I don't recall now but yeah, we sat one to Alan Arkin and he responded and he wrote a really nice letter and. I'm so grateful for that. You know it's like little things like that. That happened along the way when you're struggling for. So long just kind of keep you kind of motivated a little bit absolutely. So at some point I guess you wind up in Minneapolis I know you were talking about. Wisconsin then you wind up in Minneapolis Warden newspaper and I guess continuing to write SPEC scripts and then it seems like for the a key turning point would have been pilots season of ninety one what what led you out to La and what almost lead you away from L. A. Before finally started getting some traction there. Well, I avoided going to La for a long time and Paul and I palled canal to kind of live in Minneapolis for a while and we Decided, we were going to go to L. A. and I bought a a car with all my money, which was a very bad used car and. and. We had like seven hundred and fifty dollars between us and it it died in rapid city, South Dakota and we got stuck there while they needed to replace the transmission, which coincidentally cost exactly as much money as we had. So you're waited there for like two days while I got the parts and then we drove back to Minneapolis with our tail between our legs and that's when Paul and I were still writing together. Then I then I was riding by myself and a friend of mine. Had An agent he was working in Hollywood and? And he his agent said, he would read my materials. So I wrote some SPEC scripts and He. Did I sent them Dan. He didn't read them for a very long time but eventually did read them and told me I should come out to la during hiring season. For TV, which I did I lived in like a someone's spare room in north Hollywood and waited and nothing happened finally oddly I got a job offer in. Minneapolis writing for a Fred. Willard. Cable Show, which was going to be like a candid camera show and I was ready to leave. I was packed and I got a call from get life David. Murky and get a life who asked me to come in and I did and he met with me and he'd read my scripts and he said I said I'm leaving. You know I said, are you offering me job? He said I'm not offering you a job yet but don't leave. So I I trusted him and turned down. The job in. Minneapolis in Luckily. He wasn't lying to me. I. Got a job as A. Staff writer on get a life. The second season of the second lasted a half season I think. I got my door not my not my fault. Maybe. It was a just kind of a Fox Sitcom just to give people a sense if they don't remember Chris Elliott and then but then okay. So now then come something I think fairly soon after that has come up in a lotta different episodes of this podcast because so many talented people came you know were associated with this project that also didn't last very long. What was that? What was your experience as a writer with the Dana Carvey show that was a few years later I think probably around ninety six might experience was that met with Roberts Michael and Louis C. K. Robert was the Creator of the show and Louis was the head writer and I met with them at Brill Stein Gray in Los Angeles and they were shooting in New York and they me. They really wanted me to do with the Shell. I'd have to move to New York and they said it's going to be dark show. It's going to be you know it's worth it. It's GonNa be worth it. So I moved out there and. was a very difficult job for a lot of reasons It was very difficult for people to get their stuff on the show. There are certain people who were favored and the rest of us kind of just got very little on. So I think it was sort of. It was depressing in that way but you know I met a lot of Nice people there I had I have friends from that show to this day and So but the actual like show itself was I didn't feel included. and then having moved your life across the country. It got the plug pulled pretty early. What was your game plan at that point? It was just definitely back to L. A. or were there some second guessing?.

"Tell me what's coming up next as parents. One of the effects of quarantine is that your children have very little access to people other than you.

"It's pretty accessible these days it's tastic. It's one of those definitely grows on repeat viewings in just Kinda. Grateful that Charlie Kaufman and they Seymour Hoffman got to work together because of course, those to have so much in common I feel like Philip Seymour Hoffman is played that type of character the Charlie Kaufman type so often so they actually do it is great and I think there's kind of a thing with two key in in adaptation in particular that the is revealing of. Process over the artistic process and the difficultly you can think of ending things, but it's hard to actually put an end to what you're what you're doing to put a conclusion to the artwork that you're working on and so it just keeps building and growing and becoming becoming this this unwieldy thing that you can't tame a think it's fantastic mad have you seen it or do you have any thoughts on it? It's a good movie. But. I will say, don't I guess jumping back a little because I did promise people would get into the title of I'm thinking of ending things that we didn't I. You're right the Schenectady. is about someone who doesn't know how to end things arguably, I'm thinking of ending things some about somebody who Doesn't know how to enter relationship. But at the same time is representative of somebody who is ending his life and doesn't exactly know how to go about doing that. Now again, everything in the worlds of Charlie Kaufman's people is falling apart and I. Think if you look kind of the range of you'll find a lot of people who have troubles with closure you know Joel in eternal sunshine is where he is because. He was thinking of ending things by cutting someone out of his life, and then he couldn't seal the deal basically even if you don't think I'm thinking of ended things is the Best Charlie Kaufman movie it's the Best Charlie Kaufman title because it could be the title of all of his movies. You literally call any of his movies I'm thinking of ending things and it would be appropriate. I think you're exactly right on that. Scott I think you're thinking of beginning things by telling us a different movie. Sure. This is all freely room but I I had a chance to revisit the nineteen sixty three. Paul Newman Movie Hud recently and very strongly recommended because again, it's like every other movie I've seen in the last six months it is a pandemic movie. 'cause it's about sick cows, diseases, cows on a ranch. But what was really interesting to me about it in I think it's very interesting about Paul Newman. As an actor like here is a person and this is nineteen, sixty three. This is one of the most. Beautiful Charismatic Stars to ever grace the silver screen and he was determined to push back against that as much as possible in spent career playing. The rascals. Sometimes you know in films like Butch Cassidy I guess are the staying. But here he's just he's an anti hero he plays a guy who is Is, a womanizer sleeps with other men's wives who betrays his father who's very salt of the Earth who was terrible influence on his nephew who? Who has a very tortured relationship with their housekeeper and to behaves dishonourably from the beginning and yet there's complexity to the character and there's vividness to the look of the film. This is a film that was based on a Larry mcmurtry novel. I can't remember the name of the novel but any case it's beautiful to look at Geelong, how a shot in black and white wide-screen the won an Oscar for it. I think it's worth revisiting..

"I mean to some degree that real life thing. But you know the symbolic movie thing of we've been together too long of a spark is dead I this new sense that there was ever a spark there and in the same survey, find yourself asking what Lucia and jake ever had in common. But that becomes part of the taxed as you keep getting different views on how they got together in the first place as the story keeps breaking down and. Maybe it's about her inability to express yourself and step herself or maybe it's about her actual contempt for him or maybe it's about something else entirely the narrative keeps shifting it's hard to tell but either way that male female relationship in both of these movies is just so fraught and so full of all of that loneliness and longing in breakdown we've been talking about and pretty much every other Charlie Kaufman movie that I can come at the moment as well. He really hasn't done I mean his one really romantic movie is about, how is a good thing to live through a break up? Hold onto memories of relationships that don't work. That's the most romantic film that he's made, which is kind of amazing because this, this would not rank for. As far as This would this would rank on the list of all time worst date movies no matter what you think about it. I could. I could see to some degree I feel like any movie that gives you something to talk about after the movie is potentially a good date movie but yes, sure not a an upper. It's sure not a movie that you go home and make out after unless you're just trying to avoid talking about the movie anymore.

"Just you know you feel this immersed inside this person inside these characters and That's extremely important to Charlie Kaufman's work. It's critical that he find some cinematic way to express interior, which is usually the job of a novel. It's not usually something that films do well, but Charlie Kaufman is Kinda cracked that code whether you think he cracks the new one is another question because it's an adaptation of a book that he didn't right but it's something that he is constantly doing his movies. Yeah. I think it's interesting that I mean the the fundamental setup of anomalies. is basically seeing the world from inside the viewpoint of a pretty banal man who just doesn't see the humanity in other people everybody looks and sounds a to him as he's concerned and eternal sunshine is about literally traveling inside somebody's head and seeing his panic as he starts to lose things from inside his head this he tries to hang on to what's important there. So like looking at that particularly with these two films I think it's really interesting that the first several times people travel into Malkovich's head. He is not doing anything that would be interesting to anybody. You know he's eating toast he's putting water in his Coffee Cup before he leaves, he's polishing down his. Own Eyebrows he's taking a shower. He is going through a cadillac like all of these things that are incredibly mundane and are so exciting to everybody who's getting to experience them because they're a different point of view because they're somebody else's body somebody else's world somebody else's life and I think that that's interesting. Really subtle way of really smart and telling observation iconic gives the film I mean it would be so easy for that movie to be about people falling into Malkovich's head while he's banging gorgeous starlets while he is a meeting the Paparazzi while he's hanging out with extremely famous people while he's on stage in the middle of getting a huge standing ovation like all of. These things that stars get to do, and we're not seeing any of those things through his eyes through other people's perspective..

"You know he's the equivalent of Scott Pilgrim when we recorded that commentary track work and we're hopefully going to get edited and released. Soon, we talked about the fact. That, he has nothing to offer Ramona flowers except a stale joke about the origins of Pacman and it's it feels like the same sort of thing here like he has nothing to offer her until he finds the magic portal. So what is it with Charlie Kaufman and like sad delusional men who want everybody to bench their whims maybe these are personal. It'd be too slight Charlie coffin but I mean I think he has a personality, these other types of characters that he he puts forward these relentlessly self deprecating portraits of potentially who who he thinks. He is maybe his worst image of himself is what ends up on the screen and gets deconstructed in the harshest possible light I mean that that's kind of where these films get their their darkness where these films get their absurdity in their humor to kind of go to the the far ends of depression in Narcissism and pretension, and all of these other. What we've come to know as the Charlie Kaufman character, I mean, it's hard not to read an autobiographical element into it. When the prime example of it is a character whose name is Charlie Kaufman in the movie adaptation like all the things you're describing our president in that character and that character is Charlie. Kaufman now it's not strictly accurate in the sense that he has a twin and all these things, but it's difficult to not read him or at least his fears neuroses about himself into these men when you see something like that. So yeah, I mean again, I don't know whether it is this is who he is or if it is, this is who he fears he is and. There's an awful lot of general anxiety and fears and neuroses in all of his movies that are not just limited to that that I think perhaps we're being more generous to Charlie Kaufman and I do think he's an incredible writer incredibly smart and funny person so I don't want to be like, oh, he's just he's just this terrible schlub whose managed to make these movies like you could charitably or more generously call it. You know soul baring about his fears of how he is or who he seems to be or how he presents himself more than it is his true nature or or how other people see one thing that I really latched onto with both these moves in with coffin and. is his interest in interior already in life of the mind in how the films are a way of giving very clever expression to the abstractions of of that interior it's all in the concedes his films are so have these huge hooks to them. Being John Malkovich certainly does of this portal inside. John. Malkovich's had to be can't get was like Weirdo. Hollywood. The sense like his movies have these unbelievably big. not this new one. Of anything that would surely doesn't have much but the reason why he's like he's able to use these ideas to. Get into almost like into metaphysics in a way I mean just to kind of just take the things that he's thinking about finding expression in those things through plots where everything's external and amy I'm thinking of anything's is a little different than being John Malkovich and more like the next to New York that you do feel like you're almost going deeper and deeper inside the head of these characters particularly. Jesse Buckley's character. You're already start at such an intimate place. You already start with her narrating and telling you how she feels about how thoughts. Thoughts about how thoughts nobody can fake thought or something like that that she says, the beginning I mean i..

"Non pretty people but were talking about television the combination shear audience is in Quiet Psychic Interport, twenty images and. Start the cycle of an answer is pretty much his appeal roads of viewers on sense of security in the face of gazes. That's from. The Essay. Interesting. He killed them so Yeah. Yeah everybody knows it. Now, it's time for connections when we bring these two films together and talk about all the things they have in common. So here's the here's the thing guys. Recently, Charlie Kaufman came out with his first novel seven, hundred pages, aunt kind handful of people reviewed it, and I got an early copy and I was very excited to dive into it because I thought you know here we get to see what Charlie Kaufman does when he is not in any way constrained by production budget or values where to put the. Camera like what is he going to do with this infinite tapestry that he has and for the hundred pages that I read before? I put it down. Basically what he did was wallow in the depressive mind of a delusional racist sexist obnoxious solid cystic asshole who just goes on and on and on about how basically the world hasn't kowtowed him enough. The world hasn't deferred to him enough. He's not loved in the exact generous way that he wants to be by the world and yet with like every single page, he proves that he's entirely unlovable. And for the first time ever I started seeing this as the Kaufman theme the Kaufman character I started seeing how all of his works are kind of defined by this look at the sad delusional man who thinks he's the most important thing in the world can't escape his own head in the case of I'm thinking of ending things that feels very. Literal I mean we are literally stuck in the perspective of a like this old sad dying man who's trying to put together a fantasy life for himself to sustain himself. A can't even hold that together and being John Malkovich were were wrapped entirely around the the needs and the drives of Crag who is in a marriage that he's bringing nothing to he is in a relationship with a bunch of pets that he doesn't care about he meets a CO worker and immediately decides he has to have her and he has nothing to offer her..

The Surreal Nineteen, ninety, nine feature about love among famous actors and body fees is also the first produced screenplay from Charlie Kaufman at the time TV writer after being. John Malkovich became a modest hit Kaufman went on descript the Movies Eternal Sunshine of the spotless.

"I? Oh Gosh. You know answers only. If he's Not Him I think they are tethered just by a shared insecurity. You know I think. On second, Watch, I watch this trying to figure that out and then I, and then right at the beginning the my attention was going to watch again to figure this out like is jake the old man in the beginning I got hit by a line opening minutes where I think it's Jesse character says, sometimes, a thought is closer to reality than in action. It suddenly felt like Kauffman was just kind of blessing at the beginning in saying it's actually not about you don't have to worry about any of the puzzle logic here. It's all about seeing the emotion that you're feeling. And on Second Watch like instead of trying to solve the movie, what happened is I thought about that line. I thought about the scene where Jessie Buckley is trying to explain her quote unquote paintings that you find out. She didn't actually pay to the DAD and the data's like how can art have a point of view if there's no person in how can a painting be sad if there's no sad person, he made this big. this big. There's this big about what abstract art can be like. Can you just think of yourself looking out at the world? And suddenly decided what if Kaufman has not made it all movie, but he has made I think like. A moving representation of. Of of a painting. By that I mean you know for me I think like you you go to museum and you stare at a painting. and. You think about. Your own feelings of it you know it stirs something in you and it feels very individual and it feels private. And that's how this film works to me and I think he's explaining it the way through like don't don't try to logic your way out of this one. Let it just hit you. And put your. You know just put yourself here and see what you feel. Amanda, are you comfortable with the movie experience like that? No to the point that like I think everything that amy said was like very smart and insightful, and I would've answered the question completely differently, which is part of the genius of Charlie Kaufman and my answer would have been far more literal and overconfident in Amanda Fashion. because..

"Thank you the reason I did that is because I really wanted to get a sense of The interpretation of someone who doesn't know the tax so I'm I'm grateful that both of you don't know the text I'll say that having seen the movie even though there is a difference. I don't know I think it would be hard to make hide nor hair of a lot of the film without having read the book, and so I do understand when people watch this and say I hated or I was confounded by it and I think the idea that the the the fact that the movie is on Netflix men's that. So many people are going to see this movie or at least going to start it an uncommonly large number of people will watch a very peculiar Charlie Kaufman film and with the expectation that hey, maybe. You know the evil kid from breaking bad and you know the gal from Chernobyl. Are Going to have a romance at some point and that's obviously not what this is about. Amy Can you can you try to explain to me what you think this is about is there a way to do a plot summary from thinking of ending things? By I can try, I can try So on the surface, this is about a girl going on a trip with her boyfriend to visit his parents that together very long. She says six or seven weeks at I, say it's about a girl going because you from the beginning of the film you're in her head in her thoughts you think you know. And they go to his house his parents are played by twenty three and David Thewlis. and. Slowly thinking of the whole Netflix of the thing of people putting a movie on for five or ten minutes and giving it a shot, which is what Netflix's does. You the first five or ten minutes. I feel like our almost ordinary saving and maybe a little boring and then once they're in the house, you realize all rules are. Bending in shape you know there's a dog that's always shaking his head and an emotion time to starts to skip forward and skip back with his parents. Nothing that you think you know about the film winds up being tangible you know not even like the characters costumes will stay in place and it just starts becoming this creeping thing when you're trying to figure out the story and is the story. Oh, now see now now you got me now I'm like not even talking about the plot anymore I stop. Basically the trip doesn't go well and she just wants to go home. A man I know that you knew that this was not going to be an ordinary kind of narrative film. But at what point did you start to think did did you get confused at any point I guess is a is a useful way to think about it. was there any point where you felt like you were purposefully being unnerved or you just lost track of where things are going?.

"And this is the big picture. A conversation show about I'm thinking of ending things that of course is the name of the new movie from Charlie Kaufman and here to talk about that movie and the career of Kaufman we've got. A major friend of the ringer and the first time you joined us for a conversation like this. It's Amy Nicholson Hi amy hi. Hello. Great to be here I. Guess I'm going to be should be here for the heaviest dirtiest most beloved filmmaker door. Yes. That is exactly why I wanted you to be here because you you as I understand that you are the number one Kaufman Fan I'm a huge fan I don't know from end and I have ever even had a conversation about coughing and what he does obviously best known as a screenwriter though he's a director in his own, right? Me Maybe you can just explain to us why you respond so much to Kaufman's or yeah I mean Kaufman is my religion. You're wh what I love about him so much like he does two things in both of his films, the one is that he just narrows in I think on all of the most horrible tiny parts of a human's personality. The. Things that feel so specific to you and yet are really universal. Everybody has these insecurities in moments of MIS snob am I settling? He figures out every little bit of what makes us weak and stay up at night and then to bring those to life, he doesn't do it in this you know. Realistic Credible way of like, oh, I'm going to be writing on a bus and staring out the window and you know it's GonNa be very naturalistic in indie movie. He figures out how to tell these stories in a way that breaks movie format that's always pushing the boundaries of what a screenplay and what a film can do and so he's at once incredibly honest and then incredibly fantastical and it's that that makes ambition just absolutely breaks my heart I. Adore Him. Yeah I'm thinking of ending things is an interesting evolution or signal point for him Later in this episode, I should say I had a conversation with Charlie and Ian Read Who's the author of the novel that I'm thinking of anything. This is sort of based on which will get into a little bit when we talk about the movie but Amanda, what about you I, I had some suspicions about your Charlie Kaufman. Interest is given the conversations we've had over the years. Yes. That is true. I'M GONNA be revealing a lot about myself and my relationship to art, and you know also my existence in this show as we all will because you can't talk about Charlie off movie without getting into ideas of self end and philosophy, and how we relate to each other and to movies. Sean we have talked about Charlie Kaufman before I have to if. We're GONNA put Chris Ryan on the spot that I'm going to put you on the spot because adaptation is was one of my top five movies about making movies and I love application and I think I saw adaptation at the right point in my movie watching life and also probably just like my cerebral life which was in college, which was when I was learning about things like. Post. Modernism and deconstructing the text and kind of. Pushing formats and everything that amy was talking about in one, thousand, nine and being, Whoa you can do that and I guess also taken the requisite philosophy classes that every young undergraduate should take, and so I think of Charlie Kaufman as. The person who really taught me how much you can push not just a movie though obviously that's what he makes a piece of writing and the definition of being an artist and the the depth, the relationship between an artist and attacks and I think that he..

Review: Live-action ‘Mulan’ is gorgeous but short on magic

"Which has metamorphosed from its animated classic into a live action thrillers they'll face Just my duty to protect my family. Let's dive in on Mulan and Charlie Kaufman's new movie. I'm thinking of ending things. Joining us live on Skype with her reviews. Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday. Hello, Anne. Hello, Hilary. So Disney definitely takes a risk when it revisits a childhood classic like Mulan. Will fans be satisfied or kind of annoyed? Oh, I think, um I don't think they'll be annoyed. They might be surprised. This is not the move on that. A lot of young women and boys grew up with the lot of the comedy And these certainly the music of that animated classic from 1998 have been excised, and it's kind of grown up along with its audience into Ah, you know, this is rated PG 13. And they mean it. This is a pretty serious minded, battle minded war picture about this young woman who goes into battle to defend her country from northern invaders and find herself along the way and proves her strength and her self empowerment and it's a beautiful I will say it visually stunning film. Niki Caro has directed. This was a lot of sweep and attention to detail. The costumes are exquisite in the landscapes, and I thought that the story is It's epic. It's bloody. There isn't literal blood, but there's a lot of fighting, so I just want Especially parents to go in knowing that this is not the little, the little mulatto 1998. This is grown up Mulan for a different generation, but I think brings just as much value and Ah, beauty to it is the first one

"The idea that the book has her be made up and I hate that I think in the movie because she's played Jessie Buckley who's this wonderful actress because she's like they're physically in front of you like she feels more like a real person. But when you dig down, you're like, Oh yeah she's just like his dream girl construction. It makes me mad again because I don't want this to be a movie that's about like this white one guy and his imagination I wanted to like have humanity and people with an i. think there are moments. Toni. Collette. David, Dulas in that house where you see like what the human version of the story is, and then it kind of like you know spins off again I, don't the little interpretation of it. I think is right but it makes me ingredients Michigan. Will you have and I think that's I think that's the root of my frustration is that like it's still in the book but in the end you feel that it's at least serve something matic purpose that this is all in someone's head. Whereas in the movie I feel like. Just turns it into more of A. Kind of middle finger to the audience you know it it just feels it just it doesn't it. It heightens the frustrating synthetic quality of the story rather than like. You know manifesting on film in a way that feels. Rich or worth it and not like. It's just Charlie Kaufman once again, noodling about his own peccadilloes and issues with women which are myriad. The ones. The most of were part of that that I liked was the part where she's looping down the stairs and she's like, am I. It feels like I'm just here to support him and you know like the way she's talking about it like and I just exist to support him and I reflect Gloria and ham and something to be admired because I am smarter than I am pretty like that. But that makes him that reflects better on him like all of that could sound like something a woman might think her boyfriend thinks of her but then there's the added layer. Of the fact that like she's just something that he is constructed to make himself feel better so that at least to me vote self aware of the way of of the like toxic implications of creating like a dream girlfriend to reflect glory back on you and is is this the thing that would have changed your life bring home a girl who was you know smart and pretty and Nice the way that this girl is. And the way in which her identities keeps shifting the way in which her name keeps shifting. The way in which she played by a different actress for a split second like I just think that that's. Interesting in the way that like we all sort of. Think about or maybe this is unique to this particular character. But like that we think about our partners reflecting glory on us or saving us in some way you know but then like not that it's fair to be like, why can't you make something good as your masterpiece but that just makes you think about eternal sunshine way that you see the way they think about each other it's like okay well, it was he made that it's much better eternal sunshine like. Absolutely. I just I guess I'm and it's unfair of me because he can make what he wants. But like I just a little bummed out that this is still what Charlie confidence hung up on. It's like the girls didn't talk to thirty years ago man like just grow up like it's just it feels so like a regression of of of really interesting things that he got insect Akhi and Melissa. Film that he made. and. It's just like it and then he kind of mangled I think an interesting book in the process and took that down with him and. I just. Maybe I need to watch the third time and try. To Glean something out of it but right now, I just feel sort of like what was the point I thought that about the obsession with aging like and all this stuff in the house because in New York. So much about this terror of getting old and decrepit and like watching the world around you collapse and lake kind of being back in their the farmhouse like Oh, man, he may nineteen twelve years ago. Now he's older and he's still like. Afraid to be our only something he'd like workers we're all going to get over but like like bummed on his. It's like it's almost body horror. Maggotty pig thing which is is in the burden. But like the animated magazine. Is. Not. In the book and I was like the only thing, I can't fully get a grasp on. Is. The lake is cream shop scene, which is a Derek Green in the book and something Far Croupier with club with clown in the movie and it's like who is that girl? Is that Tulsi town like Tolsey Gab So, weird. So I fight but like who is that girl with a rash earns as she him? Lake who is she? What is that? You'RE GONNA figure this out by the time you right. That's allies to rewatch figure it out speaking of tiny details. Oh. Can we talk about the Robertson Meka's dig. This is. Not about that, it's kind of wild because has Robertson Mega for made a movie like that though like that's a very specific kind of like Rom Com in which a man's toxic behavior is kind of like celebrate it as a romantic gesture I can't I mean forest gump kind of I don't know I couldn't think of like if there's a specific thing Robert, Jamaica says done that makes him to serve that. Robertson micheals argue the Tom Hanks objectify Wilson pretty much a lot. I know I know Wilson Related Better. Know again, it's night. That's that's I don't know this movies mean. Can Be okay of course but like just like y y you know I'm not going about for Bob easy but I like his movies but some of them anyway but I don't know it just a and that's not in the book the book is sewn on own and it's not like Making snarky cultural references. It's you know it's much more interior and that's why I think it. It works..

'Eighth Grade' and the vagaries of awards season

"From the broadcast center at K P, C C. This is the frame I'm John horn on today's show could future Academy Award ceremonies honor the best screenplay written by an algorithm. Then why Bo Burnham the writer director of eighth grade channeled his feelings about the internet into the character of a thirteen year old girl, I I was very interested in young people flogging about their own life. And I watched hundreds and hundreds of videos and not to be cruel to the boys. But on average, the boys of this age talked about XBox and the girls this age talked about their souls and musician and photographer Anthony Wilson combines both disciplines for his latest release all that coming up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn. This Sunday, they'll be an Oscar for best original screenplay and for best adapted screenplay. But could there soon be a trophy for best screenplay written by an algorithm? We've known for years that technology is radically changing the way that movies are made. But what's remained fairly constant is the human screenwriter after all you can't make a movie without someone writing the script. Or can you if one artificial intelligence company has its way there's an algorithm out there that might be fighting for a share of the writing credit on the next studio blockbuster. We now revisit our peace with frame contributor, Colin freezing. Who explains it all if Robert Altman's movie, the player taught us anything it's that making a hit movie takes a lot of creativity. And frankly, guesswork psychic political thriller comedy with a heart with a heart and not unlike ghost meets entry and candidate conventional wisdom has it that no one ever knows exactly. Audiences want or what will get butts in the seats? But screenwriter William Goldman's aphorism that in Hollywood, no one knows anything may be changing. Here at the American film market in Santa Monica where the world comes to buy and sell movies. There's a company that thinks it can answer that question William Santer, Jack, Jan or with productivity media, and they're here to introduce an artificial intelligence program that will read your script analyze it for forty thousand data points or attributes then we'll tell you how to change it to make it more successful a horror film that features a ghost and the child imperilled has a eighty seven percent probability of overperforming. The benchmark the other day we actually had a conversation on. What kind of weapon with the youth in action film? We have all the kind of what kinds of breakdowns if you use a pistol compared to a handgun compared to a machine gun. We have all these planning or details of of these attributes you put all of that in and you go, you know, what if we changed the handgun to a bazooka this should outperform. We can we can see how it would into the program draws on a database of three thousand eight hundred films going back to the nineties it tracks what elements were in a movie, and how well that film did in any number of demographic groups computer will do a first run and say hope these are the potential elements, and you know, and we have recently started working on getting another layer people looking at those attributes and see, you know, how how actual relevant they are the story. So it's to stop. It's definitely a when you think about it. It's a complex problem solving. Right. The comedy drama or. Thriller. Their gold is to help any genre pitcher become the most successful version of itself. It can be they call it over performing the market or making sure you're cross generational buddy cop comedy with a dog does better than any other cross generational buddy cop comedy with a dog. It's like getting studio notes, but not from some slick executive with a gut feeling but from a coldly calculating cyborg. So it's just a tool set to I always say do one of two fundamental things. Number one is going to confirm what you believe to be true about your project or two it's going to give you an opportunity to ask another question. It all started just a couple of years ago. Jan an engineering student at the university of Waterloo in Canada, cold called the company called productivity media amid sized film. Finance firm Jiang was selling an algorithm that would predict how well a studio would do based on the movies. They were releasing. He. Intrigue the company decided to conduct an experiment using Jiang's database. They paid a film student. Make a trailer with all the key elements of a successful horror film impossible things a movie that doesn't really exist. Features of equestrian house in bath tub and a ghost in child in peril. It's honestly not much to look at. But the response on social media two point four million views was enough to tell them they were on the right track. But this feels like something we should resist to keep creativity alive. Monica Levinson is the president of production at shift Hans pitchers, the company has produced trombone and captain fantastic. And a ton of other. Well, reviewed dramas Levinson is not only skeptical, but worries that drawing on films that were successful sometimes formulaic retreads with mostly white actors might mean, there's no place at the table for new voices and diverse casting choices other things that we're trying to deal with now having more women characters and having better representation. And diversity and better representation of you know, just how characters behave all of that will be continued because that bias will continue from what worked in the past. That's not what works today, but productivity media says there's room in their analytics for all kinds of creative progressive choices take the gay coming of age drama and Oscar winner moonlight. When they ran that script through the algorithm. It determine the film would definitely find an audience before you also made tell based on two essential element in the film to have about eighty percent chance to before in the marketplace. And what was it about the movie that made you think we're made the algorithm think that it was going to do? Well, when we plugging, you know, a drama film with LGBT Salomonsson features African American. Essential elements, those the combination of those three already has a very significant influence on the outcome. But it does beg the question. If everyone is making a movie with the same elements won't that result him. Well, the same kind of movies coming out Santer says you need to think of it like music, if we said to heal whole bunch of musicians that we wanna song that's written in four four time in the key of c with this progression etcetera etcetera, etcetera, we're we're going to get you know, twenty different songs as for how screenwriters will react when. And if they're script feedback comes from an algorithm, maybe nNcholas cage playing version of screenwriter, Charlie Kaufman in adept Haitian, summed it up best sex or guns or car chases. I or characters you know. Learning profound life lessons or growing or coming to like each other or overcoming obstacles to succeed in the end. You know? I feel very strongly about this or the frame. I'm pollen freezing. Coming up on the frame our conversation with Bo Burnham the filmmaker behind eighth grade. He won the best original screenplay prize from the writers guild of America this past weekend. And he's nominated for best feature and best first screenplay at tomorrow's independent spirit awards. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. Thanks for joining us tomorrow, independent filmmakers will gather under a massive tent set up in the parking lot next to the Santa Monica. Pier. To celebrate the spirit awards they honor movies typically made outside the studio system. Among the nominated movies is eighth grade. It's in the running for four awards including best feature. The comedian. Bo Burnham who made it big on the internet as a teenager with YouTube videos wrote and directed eighth grade. And earlier this month, he won the directors guild of America award for first feature film, eighth grade is about a thirteen year old girl named Kayla who makes self help videos from her bedroom. Kayla's played by the newcomer Elsie Fisher, and the movie immerses you in her point of view in one scene. She's lying in bed scrolling through social media while an NGO song plays in the background when I met. Bo. Burnham after eighth grade premiered at last year Sundance film. Festival. He told me how he was able to reach Enya to license. Her song for his movie was like do. I write a note on like a salmon and put it new Fridays. Like, how do you contact like, how do you? Like like, a smokes they go on the air.

"charlie kaufman" Discussed on Show Me the Meaning!

"But if you're going to the real meta element to how this affects Charlie Kaufman. The screenwriter of and Charlie Kaufman the character. He didn't exactly follow up these movies with more like, okay, I've adapted to understand the necessity of Mckee or of storytelling principles because his next movies were more ambitious formless than this one. Right, right. But I mean, people do learn life lessons and people do fall in love, and you know, dramas do happen in crimes to happen in the OJ police. Chase was real and people do get eaten by alligators. And they'll do go on drug filled binges in have these crazy passionate experiences that does happen. And then at the end, you might learn something you might not you might never learn something. So I think the point is at least in one thing we can take away that he doesn't wanna be hamstrung by that idea that that every other this is what how like storytelling in Hollywood. Particular is told is that there's a particular character arc, and you know, that has to be some sort of self revelation at the end where the hero or the protagonist can't go back to the world from which he or she came because they have somehow been transformed, right? And he doesn't want to kind of like echo that same structure, but sometimes in life that should does happen. And so maybe there is something interesting about how there is like this poll if you will of the forces that are greater than you. Yeah. So I was gonna bring this up later. Let's Gordon dive into it. Now. I kinda had almost like a religious reading of this movie this time that I hadn't in my previous viewing. Did anyone else? Think that mckee's ten principles are kind of like the ten commandments commandments shout. Yes. So it's let me read something that Charlie says early on. He tells Donald he says anyone that says he's got the answer will attract desperate people be it in the world or religion. And then Donald any delight down while explain this. Sorry. I apologize. Okay. Go ahead. Sorry. And then Charlie his, okay. There are no rules. Donald anyone who says that are just you know, and you never finish the sentence. What he's probably say saying something. But I think what Charlie ends up learning. It's not only that his script needs structure, but that life does too because he's constantly saying things like I've been on this planet for forty years, and I'm not closer to understanding a single thing. Why am I here? How did I get here? And I think his journey is also that instead of. Reveling in these questions that he's never going to have an answer to. He realizes that. You can't give that to people. He says the fact that life is the fact that life is random in meaningless. That story's can't bring context to our existence is not something that people want to hear. And it's not something, that's helpful. They want drama. They want to hear that life does produce change in. Meaning and in a way Mckee is kind of a religious figure that convinces Charlie that things do need to happen in stories that people like young Campbell Mckee are firming something that is essentially human. And so in the same way that Mckee affirms that these stories the way that story principles allow you to structure a movie can allow us to make some sort of sense of our lives. Not unlike the bible or the Koran or the Torah allows us to make. Structure. So I think that that's kind of how how the adaptation affects him personally as well as with his script. And I'd never really thought about it before that. But really made me appreciate the movie a lot. I gotta say Jared that of of all the time we've been doing this podcast..

"All right. So our patrons name is Shawn. And he is joining us from l a. Going good, man. Thanks for joining us are meant. So this is your favorite movie, right? Yes. Is one of my favorite movies of all time. Well, we just well, we just broke it down. And I gotta tell you we best. We could there was. I mean, there's definitely more when you could probably fill two more podcasts breaking down these movie. Yeah. But yeah, I wanna ask how many times have you seen it? And what is the thing that you like the most about it? I don't know. I've probably I can't count the amount of time that I've seen it probably more than a dozen. And probably one of the biggest things that attracts me to it is like d total creative control that Charlie Kaufman. The entirety of like this piece. And it's definitely a piece of art. I think that it's one of the pieces of art of our time that transcends. In so many ways like it speaks about what it means to be like a human, and what it means to have like a true human experience, and I feel like I can feel like Charlie Kaufman's, like blood, and heart and soul being gushed out in every corner of this film comes out about a arrest. Not gonna argue I like light cadence piece of Peter it is uncompromising. To give you an idea. Sean. There's four of us you're on the pod. And I think Jacob really didn't like it. No. I you're barely above fifty. Now. I favor Charlie coughing. But but but it's good. But I love it. I really love it respected for what it is. I agree that, you know, it's not for everyone. Jared does is kind of Jacob right? I think that it's a movie that's hard to watch not fun to watch. It's much more fun to talk. And you don't think that movies deserve to have dissertations to be enjoyed. No. I mean, it's just a different flavor of enjoying. If flavor if I'm not busy, and I have a just a ton of time on my hands that I wanna spend six hours watching a movie rewatching and researching then. Yeah, man, just signed me. But I guess yeah. There's just not where I'm at Austin's more on my side. He gets off on an on an intellectual level. So yeah, that's kind of where we're all out on the pod. So I think that you more on our side sounds like a job. Have you liked the more with every time you've seen it? Did you like dislike it the first time? Or you just confused has been is it have you had any clarifying experiences? Yeah. So the first time I watched I think I thought it was very slow, and I could see why it's very difficult to have to to just recommend this movie to anyone and just be like, yeah. You know, sit down and watch this'll be great. Now, you gotta like vet the person before you recommend this type of movie. Stare at you with glazed over eyes and be like, why did you make me watch this? Depress slow. It's not great for her state. No, no. I don't know. I think it'd be a good litmus test first date movie. Just be like, let's see how cool this person is after this movie. Are they gonna fuck in like fight me? Or are. We going have an intellectual conversation over some drinks afterwards. Well, I guess if you wanted to get your first date with this movie. You better be prepared to have this relationship fail. Really, there's not like one gleaming ounce of hope in this film. Relationships specifically like a sexual like, no, there's no chance I agree. So you're saying the first time you saw you thought it was slow..

"To me and said, hey, dude, you wanna go see Senate doce New York with Charlie Kaufman. With Charlie Kaufman and QNA and he reeked of weed and dressed as a Christmas with an all white beard, by the way, what I'm referring to is that for a month Ryan dressed as a Christmas elf and only referred to himself as the name napkins. The story even. Yeah. There's a lot of Baxter even got the teachers to call napkin. And so I said to myself, you know, what I'm in college. I'll I'll just say, yes. So we went to go see it. And I even remember the question you ask Charlie Kaufman at the end, do you? Remember the question zero clue at the end of the movie you ask Charlie Kaufman Heyman. Do you ever thought about doing a movie about time travel? And I think like everyone else in the everyone else was asking these questions that were so far up there at that the audience kind of giggled at what seemed like a very juvenile question. But I remember if you may press room, we were in the very very front row like we were inches away from Charlie cough draft house, right? No. This was at the paramount. Okay. See, I don't know anything keep going and Charlie Kaufman. Took the question very seriously. And he said, yeah. But I haven't figured out anyway. So let's get first impressions of this movie. Ryan, what do you think upon revisiting booth? Yeah. I remember after watching. The first time we we left, and I remember being like, dude, I think I fucking love that movie that was kind of my main first impression I saw those many moons ago with you Jared was like dude, I think I love that. Because I already gone. I love Charlie Kaufman. But yeah, like, it is I would say incomprehensible almost I when you first see it. But in a good way like not like in dune, David Lynch's dune where you can't follow the story. It's like you can't fall the story. But you that's that's baked into the the the narrative, you know, you get that. This is like they're making a story within a story within a story when it gets convoluted kind of part of the charm, but you definitely on first viewing. I don't think can really follow it to a T. And that's probably not even the point. But yeah, like, I definitely left. There's just a lot of strange things in this movie. Obviously have you not seen it since. I watched it last night again when you. Only seen twice then. Yeah. Always seen it twice. But and and and I and whenever I make my list at the end of every year, you know, like that was my favorite movie of that. You're really was. Yeah. Even those my only time, but anyway, it stuck with me. But yeah, when I watch yesterday, I notice way more I got way more out of it. I think it's a brilliant movie. There's so much today. Sect it's not it's not for everyone. It's not like the most successful movie, obviously. But it's a filmmakers filmmakers movie, you know, writers writers movie, it's like an it's about literally everything I think like it's about life the universe living the perception of living other people relationships love death in that just it's it's so ballsy Dacia. And I can't believe it exists. So Bravo, Megan Ellison. Bravo, Charlie Kaufman and everyone involved for making it happen. But let's dissect it because I honestly ready for you. Oh, me the meaning. All right Austin. What about you, man? What do you think? Yeah..
