Judy Garland's Top Movie Moments
"Welcome to film spotting Josh. We both took a crash course judy. Garland movies of the last few weeks and today is the final. Are you ready. I think I'm ready yeah I haven't I haven't seen everything. I don't even know if Michael Phillips is seen everything she's major so yeah. I feel prepared. They're still blind spots but this should be I think appropriate to our styles of preparing preparing for a show you methodically doled out the movies took them in over a few weeks and I crammed just didn't college. I procrastinated and I had to hit everything thing at the last minute to be fair. It helps when we actually commit to something for weeks. Had A title which is very rare for the show is rare well. Let's find out if Michael Phillips has is in fact seen every Judy garland movie we welcome in the man who will be handling proctoring duties for our garland examined is Michael Phillips from the Tribune. How are you good to see you goes good to see you. It's been a while I mean it's been a long time. I know it'd be on. I know we do this. More regular like Obama's. First Tournament feels like a slight exaggerate so how many how many do you think you've seen countered them up the garlic first of all. I had a wrong. I thought it was beverly girl. I'm on my three sons so I prepared all wrong. That's next show my next issue. That'll be a download killer. Yes but you know I'd say if you look at all the titles including the the obscure secure ones before she was advised. I've seen two-thirds maybe enough to feel pretty smug about my knowledge base compared to you guys okay okay well. That's all that really matters but let me ask you. Is there one at the tip of your tongue. That is a blind spot. You're embarrassed about. Is there a garland film. You've always meant to see that you haven't y actually I joked. I joked with the email to you guys earlier today about about pigskin parade or actually it was on twitter yes yes. I've never seen pigskin parade now. How you were just needling I was kneeling. I haven't seen pigskin parade. so you know if we can do a whole show on that next week at appreciate it could get to it but no that's of the biggies you know there's a few others in the early forties that I haven't seen him never seen presenting Lily Mars a lot of other things that would just sort of make you look click nipper the dog just staring. You know like what presenting. Lily were so these obscure titles to to to share explore someday later later in the show. We'll talk a little bit about hustlers. The new dramas set in the world of UPSCALE GENTLEMEN'S CLUBS IT Stars J. Lo and Constance Wu Michael and I both had a chance to see that that movie we open to big box office numbers last weekend. We've also got pull results to our question about which acclaimed movie director needs to make a movie set in space a lot of great feedback from that one including one Josh like last week. I might just be setting aside in my back pocket. Just bring on you upon. I'm going to have to leave the studio. We'll see but first I judy garland. The garland biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger opens in limited release including here in Chicago next weekend the reviews so far pretty pretty much what you'd expect from the genre that Josh knows as his most detested movie genre the biotechs a little strong but not my favorite Los Zellwegger herself and getting a lot of praise now Michael. You have made a little bit of the festival around here lately. Did you see no no tomorrow to screening tomorrow. Does the does the listener goodwill no no. It doesn't know that you're going to see gonNA see a trend. We will have to have you back on to hear your thoughts. I could go on singing. I'll I'll go on singing. That's what I'll of course we may or may not get to a full review of Judy here on the show but we did want us the movie as an opportunity to spend some time time on Garland herself who until recently was kind of a blind spot for both of us Josh with the exception of the wizard of Oz of course it really was the Manelli marathon where we got to dive into her work. Is it fair to say that maybe the wizard of Oz isn't the best introduction one could have to Judy garland because Saad as a kid and many times sense and I don't know. Oh that a place to her strengths now that I've seen obviously over the rainbow is a central piece of focus and made her you know center to another level level of notoriety and fame but the character I don't think is sort of a passive character could be a little whiny and I held off on Garland for a while thinking meanwhile that's Judy Garland and then I think it was producers. Sam's pushing of Easter parade a couple of years ago. That was my first non wizard Judy Garland film the One with Fred Astaire and I was just completely shocked. At what a great president. She wasn't that so very different and then you're right. It was the Manelli marathon that really gave me a good sense of what she could do as well as catching up with nineteen fifty four is a star is born when the remake came out so yeah than really immersing myself men for this list. I in her stuff and surprise surprise Adam She's really something yeah. Check out the big brain on Josh. He's done all his homework. Shoot down the conclusion Asian. Is that needs to know about you the wizard of Oz I was. I'm a crammer like Adam. I'm doing the most I could watch the catch up on stuff. I hadn't seen in years years and years and stuff. I I knew I liked but hadn't seen in a long long time and just the the real pleasure of watching shing concentrated way of you know a little a little bit here and there for a couple of days of somebody who is just such an astounding triple threat who did did the top of the top of the heap and I mean I mean she. It's it's there's a handful of other. Mgm Stars Gene Kelly Fred mystere and then you know one or two others but it's it's Kelly astaire in Garland and then there's everybody else and that and that's when you think about what that actually means and when you talk about the work they did together with the garlanded with Kellyanne garlanded with a stereo. It's just you know. I don't have the same love for Easter parade that you do Josh but you know the talent level is just kind of astonishing though and it's just sort of a I don't know I don't I can't even be cynical about how what what a what a strong response. I had just kind of like just sort of like soaking up the talent because it's not somebody I grew up with loving from age eight on on you know I mean I mean I. I wasn't really a wizard of Oz annual viewer at that age you know because if the marksmen does Ron I was mark of course they were the Marx brothers. Those were not in the was it of is you know I would've actually loved to see him as ten minutes but the radar now jokes aside Josh I do think it's fair to say and this May bear out as we get into our picks that we've discovered there are depths to judy. Garland is a performer that probably aren't fully on display away in the wizard of Oz. So why don't we go ahead and jump into those picks we are going to devote this show to our top five. Judy garland moments and we're going to start it off with an an expert voicemail a guest opinion here from a previous contributor to the show does Ray Garcia Michael. You put us in touch with desert initially. She Played Madeleine Colin in Damian Chazelle debut film Guide Madeline on a park bench. She's currently an associate professor of Latin American Latino and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth and if you're a longtime listener the show you'll recall that she joined us for our top five musical numbers back in two thousand sixteen that was a tie in with our review of Damian Chazelle la La land and she's got a great pick for her favorite Judy Garland. Hi this is Deborah Garcia leaving a message for the Judy Garland show show if I had to choose my favorites judy moments which is indeed a tough task it would have to be rather obvious choice. I'm afraid of the have yourself Merry Little Christmas Song in Navy in Saint Louis. Your saw aw little let your heart the next year. Oh it's it's really an anomaly in musicals of that era in the sense that it is a song that is quite dark. It's a moment that's quite dark. even rather kind of foreboding it's Judy of course in her character esther trying to console her younger sister sure as they prepare to leave St Louis and moved to New York. The lyrics of course are storied lyrics. Now we know that there were at least two different versions of lyrics. The first is one being much darker than the first and it's it's something that quite rare for Hollywood musicals of the period to delve into such dark seems uh-huh change and family separation and perhaps separation is eternal and even though she's trying to comfort her little sister to D- it's clear that esther has her own doubts about what is about to happen and we hear that I think in in Judy Garland's voice voice up here. She's a masterful singer so we hear both the kind of conviction and hopefulness times that things will work out all right and then at other moments I think including the very very end of the song is she seeing those last final words we hear that there is some doubt there on her part some day soon you who beat him and and also just say that that for me you know that song has always been a kind of touch tone in my life something that has helped me kind of mark the various listen turns of my journey's first away from home three thousand miles away to college again leaving a college that I came to love and considering home and embarking on a new career and then to of course marriage and and having a kid and every year I revisit is it that film and that song and it helps me to kind of chart where I've been but also to help me brace myself for the future. Thanks

"That's from the trailer for the new Amax documentary. Apollo eleven. It's about Nasr's first mission to the moon. Yes. Also, the subject of last year's I man, the Damian Chazelle film, some of the footage in this doc has never been seen before. I haven't seen it Adam you have you made time for Apollo eleven. What did you think about that? I just thought yesterday. So as we sit here back toback movies, about pilots and space travel, and I adored this film. Josh took all the kids to see this with me on a Sunday fortunate to have an AMC kind of one of those junior. I maxed the IRS, right? It's fairly nearby. The closest multiplex to us, and I just saw so many positive comments about this movie on Twitter. Otherwise, I have to. Yes. It was pretty much off my radar. We needed something fun to do on Sunday. So I brought everyone to the movie movie shot fifty years ago. And this means nothing right now, but my favorite film of twenty nineteen so far the footage is stunning. And that's how it looks the quality of the cinematography. But also where the cameras are. And what the filmmakers were able to pull from the director. Here is Todd Douglas Miller, and there are hundreds of examples I could point to, but there's one shot of one of the dockings that happens in space, you know, part of this rocket and the capsule that the ran has to come off. And actually do a little turn in space, and then reduc with the piece that it just came off of. And you see the whole thing play out from a camera that's clearly mounted on the receiving ship. So when the contact, and then the seal are made we actually linger for a few extra seconds. And you see the bolts shit. Jimmy a little bit afterwards. And whether it was totally delivered or not that choice to kind of linger there for the viewer. All I could think of was the tenuousness of it all despite the Dow and the incredible achievement that we're witnessing. It's still dependent on machines with parts and pieces that are made by men and maneuvered by men who could all fail, and you mentioned I man it's such a perfect companion and compliment to. I man I remember when we talked about that film. I noted that I really appreciated how Giselle for trade Armstrong in such an ambivalent way that he wasn't this sort of stereotypical macho American hero. I said that I needed real heroes. These days imperfect people ev- action, and I man definitely got it had action, but it also really focused in on the imperfect person there, and this film Apollo eleven is the action. There's no. Narration there. No interviews. There's no contextualising..

"City of stars from LA La Land, the multiple Oscar winning movie written and directed by Damian Chazelle and scored by Justin Herbert's Justin won two Academy Awards for his work on it. Best original score and best original song for city of stars. And Justin just one another Golden Globe to add to his collection for his excellent score on another day mentioned L film. I man which I loved it tells the story of Neil Armstrong played by Ryan Gosling, the first man to walk on the moon and his long suffering wife played by Claire Foy to create the music Horowitz used a therapy on the 'electronic instrument that was a favourite of fifty sci-fi composes as well as synthesizers and a large orchestra to underscore the story of America's first moon landing in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. As is often the case with movies collaboration can be everything. And once you get it. Right. You repeat the winning formula Justin Hurwitz, and Damian Chazelle creative lives are deeply intertwined as Justin told the BBC's Matthew sweet, we've known each other since we were eighteen we met the first week of freshman year of college, and we start a band together. And then software we became roommates and started talking more about movies than about the band's. What did you recognize each other one of the things that bonded us was a shared passion for music, I and then for films and music in Vilnius, we were really dedicated to what we were doing at the time. We were living together starting sophomore year, and he was working on his scripts, and I was working on music. We really appreciated how dedicated each other was to the crafts, respectively all the themes, whether it's score themes or song melodies in the case of the musicals. We've made they all come from just sitting at the piano and noodling. Away and making piano demos and emailing them to Damien one after another after another I send them off to him.

"Has been getting more attention on the award circuit that it seems like it deserves that started to change a little bit with nominations here and there, but I feel like this movie is such an incredible movie and better than it could have been this could have been a movie that could've tread the same water as Apollo thirteen could have done what plenty of other space movies like have done before. But I think what makes this movie stand out is just how personal and intimate Damian Chazelle gets with Neil Armstrong as a man because this is this is a movie that is about the man that has Neil Armstrong. And it just so happens to be follow him during the time that he is part of the efforts to get to the moon, and it's just so much more personal than any other. You know, telling of the story could have been is not just about a moment in history. It's about this tragedy in Neil Armstrong's life, something that stuck with him some of that define him, probably even more. So than the moon. Landing does at least as far as Neil Armstrong himself is concerned. And I think that the ending of this movie is not only heroin for the ways they travel is depicted. But especially for how it resolves Neil Armstrong as a man as a character. And what you know, what the moon landing actually means to him as opposed to what it means to the rest of us to the United States to the space program. And I think that that is something that no one really ever expected. I man to do. And I I love this movie so much because of that. So my top fifteen it's an incredible film. I wish had room for my top ten Gosling gear is my favorite male performance of the year possibly because so hard to place someone so withdrawn, and he he makes a fascinating case study in playing somebody who does not show emotions, and that's that's incredible. Yeah. It drives me crazy that people don't think he's doing anything special because that kind of reserve performance is is insanely difficult to pull off. I I don't think he's not doing anything special. I just don't feel. Will. I feel like there should we should be seeing that there's something going on in his head. He's keeping in and I feel like it feels more like he's playing a robot in the. No. I think I think that part of the reason that I disagree with that too. And I think this is why Damian Chazelle you to so many close ups because I think you can see so much just in goslings facial expression. Sometimes even lack facial expression. And his his is do so much to give an idea of what he is. Or isn't feeling in all these moments? I don't have a yes. Buttons ought to say. Yes, I I'm such a NASA nerd, and I love Damian fizzles previous films. And I wanted to love that film. It did not make myself fifteen let's move on number six films. I'll start things off with minding the gap. And this is the film you can watch right now at on Hulu. So if you have who you should check this out. It's this film compiles twelve years of footage director, bingo way, Lou he films in chronicles the struggles of himself and his friends as they try to move. On from there. Pass into adulthood. It starts with Bing, filming his friends for ski videos as teenagers in evolves into a much deeper movie that gives perspective of modern adult. Adulthood, manhood. What I think makes his documentary. So great is being was filming his friends for years before he started like actually making this documentary because of that he had incredibly intimate access to them that would be almost impossible for the typical documentary filmmaker to get like, he he film, some some encounters into moment between his friends that I don't think anybody could possibly be in the room for, you know, it's just because of that it's through these portrait's, we we get a glimpse into the fractured home lives of these kids and how that resonates with them as they try to make their rough transition into adulthood. Bing, even turns the camera on himself in his mother, which is extremely compelling footage. The film can be heartbreaking to watch. But is also mentally uplifting. And you know, another film. My top fifteen is mid nineties the drek to'real debut of join a hill..

He worked on the first three Harry Potter movies and served as composites supervisor on visual effects Oscar winner, the curious case of Benjamin button today, he's visual effect. Supervisor at D Neg believe visual effects house on first man, whose Oscar winning work, included, interstellar and inception. Paul welcome. And thanks for joining us today so much now this was your first film with Damian Chazelle. What was the collaborative process like is a direct to very much knows what he wants like when I first met him. I was still finishing blade on and I flew down to a. Spoke about about how to visual effects, and basically told him that how I lead to try and get as much in camera in one post rather than try and break break everything down, and he seemed really keen with that idea. And when I was confirmed on the show, he sent me forty tenth his notebook, which was three hundred page PDF, oh, which outlined the entire movie. We'd like different different aspects different. Sounds different visuals which were inspiring him are never actually come across an insult to the mon- a film. I and also he sent me some of his atomatic spicy storyboards, which which he had already cut to music and the music, which you hear in the film now was the same music that was in the enigmatic. So this was months before any shoot him. Justin advisedly composed the school already like a year before and obviously is much better version. But I picked up that Choon in it for the pasta become a little bit of an obsession. Put very much knows what he won't send he provided an a magic with like all cargo footage and stuff. And I knew that on this particular project that we would have reference for every aspect of of space journeys with repeat photographs or whether it be footage from the time. So we didn't really want to deviate from that. He wanted to keep it gritty documentaries fell as if it'd been shot from that particular time period and all of the as of departments would meet every day about different aspects of the movie, and and grew constantly change it around if something should be done a miniature or something should be done full Ciccio something put down with what returned the bigotry, which is like an eighty percents. So scale of the bottle. It was constant conversations. Like, I went to Atlanta, three months before the shoot. And what we just talked and talked and talked and what's visuals about. Okay. How are we going to do? Now, you mentioned the the whole team. So that included production designer Nathan Crowley who created the detailed period settings and Lena sanguine cinematography Narva combination of sixteen millimeter thirty five millimeter. And I max foam formats, but it all came together. So seemless and realistic. How did you pull that off? Just just like those huge push to try. Ryan Tron do as much in cameras puzzle. Damon wanted to avoid any form of green screen was. He was. Location on. Away in which would have the crew and actually help the actors perform rather than shootin a specific scene in in front of a green screen. So we came up with a simple philosophy in that. If a shot was going to have part of something which we built close up. We would want to use the full SCO all the percents go, practical, if it was a mid show, we would use a miniature like put us one of enounters once scale miniature or if wide show is okay to all CG and it worked really well, really? Well, now, the film shot in Atlanta and Cape Canaveral. And you were closely with NASA. I man even incorporated some archive footage that had never been shown to the public. As I understand it..
"chazelle" Discussed on Happy Sad Confused
"Today on happy. Second fused filmmaker Damian Chazelle takes Ryan Gosling and audiences to the moon with I man. Hey guys, I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome back to the show. Welcome to another addition of happy. Sad confused on today's show. One of our greatest filmmakers working today. He's obnoxiously young and talented, but we're going to just set that aside and just appreciate what he is contributing to cinema Damian Chazelle. His last three films are Walla wound with clash, and now I man and I would put those three films up against any three in a row for any filmmaker today. And you could even go back a significant time in history to look at a run like that early, especially early filmmakers. Career tame inches l. is is operating on a level that few filmmakers can. Aspire to, and I man is currently in theaters. You've probably heard about it by now. It is of course the true life tale of Neil Armstrong and the. Insane endeavor to get to the moon for America to beat the Russians in the space race and to put a man on the moon. We know where the story ends, but the story is unexpected. Many ways to deeply personal film about a man and a family wrestling with tragedy surrounded by death surrounded by hardships who perseveres and focuses on one task that seems foolhardy at best and and just impossible by most standards. But again, we all know where this ends up and it's a thrilling movie. I'm a big fan of this movie. I've actually seen three times for various reasons, and my appreciation actually has has probably been grown as I've seen it over and over again. The craftsmanship is impactful. The last thirty forty minutes are basically about the moon. In landing and takes you on that journey. But it's, it's, it's a, it's a surprisingly emotional film to the first time I saw it. I was really caught off guard by what of how it hit me and how intensely it hit me at the end. And I think that's that's a tribute to the filmmaker to the writer. Joss singer who has written a bunch of great stuff in recent years. Most notably spotlight. He was a co writer on the post. And of course Ryan goslings performance, which is understated like the man apparently was but deeply moving ineffective. And of course, you know, I'm gonna mention Claire Foy fuels into this podcast. You know, it's a clairvoyant love fest and she is of course, wonderful in it. Kind of taking Neil Armstrong task as his wife. At times, she's not shrinking violet. She's not just the, you know, the wife at home there. There's more to this character than that. And that's again a testament to the writing direction. And of course clear foist performance. So this was a great tree Damian's been on the podcast before he was on for LaLa land. So it's. I, it's all end was like my favorite film of that year whiplash. I'm not sure if it was my favorite of the year. It came out, but it was certainly near the top and this'll be near the top as well this year. So I have so much admiration for what Damien is doing and his career, and it's it's thrilling to talk to just a master filmmaker. Even at this young age. Call this a spoiler conversation maybe is a little weird because, again, we know sort of where the story heads, but if adverse to that kind of conversation, if you want to. It probably is to your advantage to have seen the film before listening conversation. It probably plays anyway, but we do get into some specific seen specific choices at Damian makes so fair warning. If you are spoiler adverse, maybe see, I man, I and then come back to this conversation. And I think if you have seen it this in depth conversation will be richly rewarding. At least I hope so it was for me anyway. That's the main event today. A lot of cool films out right now, we're really deep into into the fall where all these great films coming out, beautiful boy just came out. I really recommend that with deeply personal and emotional performances from Steve Carell and Timothy may hate you give is still in theaters. I recommend that a star is born is going to play for months and months and months..

"By the way before we get onto the cause of the death of political correctness. One point out an important poll that matters. No, I'm not talking about Missouri. No, I'm not talking about Indiana. No, I'm not talking about taxes, all of which show significant movement in the direction of the Republican candidate after Brett capital. I'm not talking. I'm talking about I man. You saw this movie with Damian Chazelle came out over the weekend and you know Ryan Gosling movie about Neil Armstrong landing on the mood, and it's one of these, blockbuster, Oscar, bait, movies, and flopped at the box office. Now, there had been some controversy with this movie because they don't show Neil Armstrong planting the flag on the moon. Why didn't they do that? I don't know. I sort of suspect it's because they want to cozy up to Chinese audiences and overseas audiences which are going to constitute a lot of its profit. But Ryan Gosling did an interview and he said, oh, you know, it's because it was a human achievement. It's not an American achievement. And this really irritated half the country. So as watching these box office returns pretty closely because I thought, you know, if this is a monster win at the box office, conservatives aren't as influential as I thought we were. Concern the the, the raw feeling of patriotism wouldn't be as big. And this thing flopped, it only made, I think, was sixteen million over the week. Sixteen seventeen million should've made a lot more money than that. That's an important poll polls are notorious land, reliable, specially generic polls, especially national polls. I think that polls pretty reliable. This movie should've been a hit. The the only explanation I can come up with is that Americans don't want to see Hollywood disrespect them anymore. They don't wanna see elites disrespect them anymore. They don't want to be pushed around twenty two days until the election. That's an important data point. I think I know why the tide turned. There was this study that came out at the end of last week. It showed that eighty percent of Americans oppose political correctness. They think that it's a danger to the country eighty percent. This is an all time high in the nineteen nineties. The number was fifty. Three percent opposed PC. Then it rose even as as late as twenty sixteen polls, put it about seventy three percent. Now it's up to eighty percent. Consider political correctness, a serious problem in the country. Why is that. I think the answer is transgenderism. I actually think that's the one that put it over because you know, it's one thing to say. You have to say, happy holidays instead of merry Christmas, my roll your eyes and say, man, that's stupid..
"chazelle" Discussed on The Director's Cut
"Put it in the trailer. He asked about was he thinking was Damian thinking about the right stuff while can save the movie. Calvin Ville. Yeah, I mean, for sure. I mean, I so I, that was a movie that I've seen a few times back when I wasn't engaged with the subject matter and then sort of early on made sure to rewatch and and I think with that movie and with it, I guess in some ways, I would say every movie explicitly dealing with space travel. I made a point of of watching them early on and then avoiding them at all costs just just because it would screw me up because it would, you know, sort of get into my head, especially good ones like the right stuff. You know that those are the ones that you almost want to avoid the most two thousand one, something like that made sure to watch early on. And so I could refresh myself from exactly what their approach was and then a and then you know, at. At, especially as we were getting closer to shooting. You know, you want almost or Mike is create a little bit of a bubble around myself in terms of the sort of things that I feel okay to kind of pill for from. And and so that became largely on the one hand, you know, the sort of archival footage that I was talking about, sir, authentic NASA footage of the time and then non space, movies as whole sort of host of movies that I'd screen for the crew. When we were prepping. You know everything from, we'll certainly movies took place during the period, but I think a lot of sort of family, a lot of movies that I felt could maybe speak to the family aspect. We looked at stuff by Bergman and stuff like ordinary people and films like that. And and then I guess when it came to try to figure out how to shoot a this, the the set pieces, so to speak the space sequences really looking at a, I always like that you have if you're trying to shoot something about certain subject matter to try to shoot it as though you're doing it about a different subject matter. So we tried to, we watched a lot of war films and things like daas and tank films, things like that submarine films. We, we screened the wrestler. And you know, especially kind of talking about brute physicality in in cinema and how to kind of communicate that through these launches. You know, raging bowl, you know, things like that, so stuff that subject matter wise is far removed, but but where it felt like I could concrete -ly grab it something, whether it was the shooting or the editing or the music or whatever that would, you know that would inspire us.

For a lot of good ones is of course, the what I most excited about can. I guess I bet I know which one it is. It's I I man. Yeah. Exactly. This is how excited I am about. I I am here by calling it cursed, man. I thought your Twitter handle was the wolf manse. Oh, well, if you. The wait. Now, you'll see that. I changed it to first match. Hey. That I'm looking right. I man there. It is. Okay. So that's how excited you excel. That's how excited I am. Now. Here's the thing about I man, this is this is Damian Chazelle first movie since he became the youngest director to win the kademi award for best director, of course, that's for LaLa land, which one six Academy Awards and sunset. And if you recruit the two and a half minutes that it actually went this picture. The it is so signed mentally different dollar land. In fact, it's so fundamentally different from other movies. We've seen about the space program. Whether it's the right stuff Apollo thirteen or TV's from New York to the moon, all of those are basing projects for film and TV by the know. I mean is it's eight unique film. It's the space race like you've never seen it before. And the reason for that is Damian Chazelle and screenwriter Josh singer has done is they've stripped away the polish they've stripped away the gloss from the space program. It's a visceral film that you don't just watch. It you feel like you really feel the danger that these guys went through particularly new Armstong the movie covers of Armstrong in massive leading up to the boom. Interlining of nineteen sixty nine. It's just a movie about the space race that you've never seen. You really don't get into Armstrong's head. You know, it's not like a real rob gung ho idealistic depiction of the space program or the astronauts. You know, you don't have that slow motion shot up the astronauts walk into the rockets for the launch. Kind of a movie, and you know, people they feel a little attached from Armstrong, and that's only because Armstong was not the warm and fuzzy type was very private. Died and he never talked about it. Right. And do I have that right about his historically? That is. I mean, listen, I thought I knew everything about the space program because I read all this stuff. And I've seen somebody documentaries. A daddy. I didn't know that ability was going to be a meditation on grief. Oh, boys. Would it is? Okay. Now reducted in a in a depressing way because the fact is if when you get to the end of the snooty packs, a very powerful emotional punch that I did not see it coming, and it is it's a movie date play. Frankly, you have to see it in. I max because all of the scene shot or Shaba Timex cameras. So you gotta see tonight. Actually, there's a Musi. Anyway, I really love this movie alive. What helped different it is? It feels real unique. It's a bold daring film that really leave an impression on you. Because it is so old the roll. I man is a terrific movie. It is a it is a giant leap of a cinematic achievement. Wow. Okay. Ringing endorsement for I man from from. I may as it is right now. But that's not the only movie this October is turning out to be a really big October. Isn't it? Well last week he had stars born and also this weekend, you have ability called bad types of the L for. Yeah. And I really loved this movie ally of, you know, big big simulcasts including child. Johnson. Jeff bridges, Jon Hamm. You know, this is a movie about a bunch of losers who find themselves at the CD, Bo tell they're all hiding secrets and mobile or another. They're all on divided from one single or another at at all combinations of what crazy night at this at this hotel at the great thing about this movie is that it's not a sequel prequel, it's not based on Kabul superhero movie star Star Wars movie. It's not a franchise. It's a completely original film. And that's a wild ride because each scene is followed by seen that's done from a different point of view. Basically changing the scope of what you just saw in the previous scene. I mean that they showed a little convoluted and confusing to describe the bite. It's it's a movie that you will you take unique film that you get this year, which could also saves things. Same thing it out dursban, but I really liked this movie. Yeah. I mean, it's definitely inspired by the likes of Quentin Tarantino's, not as violent bites you to say, it's a really daring unique. It's a fun fun, Billy. I really thought that types of elbow. Then I think you're really gonna like Ethan. It's called the oath about you know, Barunholtz wrote directed and stars in this New Jersey that takes place over thanksgiving dinner on the eve of a deadline for Americans are forced to sign a pledge of oath to the president. I mean, this is not that off the Mark now, given our current political climate and its controversial provocative. It's outrageous introduced very very funny, and it's definitely gonna stir conversation kind of a bunch of b of an episode of the twilight zone interest in the way that every bowl. These people are confined in place. It feels like a play. But I love this movie. And I think it's right up your alley east. And I think he's okay. So that's the oath by the way before we run out of time. Scott manse joining me on the phone. Of course, I to just let you know, you have such a hard time keeping up with movies, right? I had a plane a couple of plane rides this week. I finally watched check this out ready player. One. Not that good Spiderman homecoming unbelievably good. Yep. And a ventures if 0 war which was it's like, they through the I mean, I don't even know how to describe that was just such a gigantic movie. And I'm not sure how I felt at the end, but you had told me long ago when it came out Spiderman homecoming that was the best of like any of those movies. I had seen I think. Yeah. Well, Spiderman homecoming this actually last summer flew on delta because he actually selection. That's exactly right. Spiderman homecoming for me was the best Spiderman movie since the second one would tell me McLaren from two thousand four really injected a lot of energy and humor to the series. And some really good plot. Twists in that movie. With Michael Keaton has zillion voice. And you know, a lot of fun Spiderman richer tomato, cinematic universe. I remember sorry prominent film, but you know, Tom Hollander, proper Caddick sell. Interesting. Yeah. Feels like a greatest. Yes. You know, in terms of itself, it's a lot of fun. But you know, it's a little silly. And I am just two more seconds ready player. One was just disappointing. I was like you could this could have been so great. And it just it was like. It didn't just somehow execute. The source material divided up Spielberg's alley. I mean, it is you given all the references to his movies in the original by Ernest crime. But ready player one was I felt like spill whereas try to show off in and purchase worth in today's you know, sort of like a world of observable reality, and and media and good evening. I, you know, I read the puck, and I saw the movie, and I still didn't understand what that was about. Thank you for saying that. Yeah. It was a busy seldom. I watch it mostly to it. I felt like it tried to hard to be determined to the magic of Spielberg's earlier films. Missed the Bank. Yeah. That's a perfect description of tried to hard Scott man's follow him or I man says we can call him right now Twitter Instagram at movie mascot is always. So great to catch up with you. Thank you so much have a great weekend to Ethan. Thanks so much. All right sky. Really do appreciate it. Coming up in just a moment.

"chazelle" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"Join us. Now, Oscar winning screenwriter, Jess, Josh singer, his latest movie. I man premiers in movie theaters tonight and Josh directed by Damian Chazelle Oscar winner. And you have your now a book author because your screenplay, where's the right shot for this? Your screenplay is now published in this book form a lot of great pictures in it and your notes from the script? Yeah, we tried to get some context, the struggle context. You can't quite given the film as well as what it'd be transparent since we were doing with an icon where we take license, we don't take much. We take a little. What would you saw? This is part of what we saw in in Russia today. The and one of the things the film delivers so marvelously in ways that I had forgotten is the range of mistakes that were made. The risks that were taken before Neil Armstrong ever gets to go to the moon and lives that were lost in the process of getting there that constantly dealing with setbacks and getting back up and keep going. Yeah, in the sixties nessa sugarcoat. Did things, and they had been reason to. I mean, people don't remember, but the public support for the program declined dramatically in the sixties. And so NASA didn't want you to know how many failures there were, how many you know how many near misses there were Neil himself lost two of his closest colleagues. They were up on that screen minute ago, and he himself almost died several times including the RV ax in which you just saw a dramatize there and in that accident, if he had not ejected, if he had two and a half, he had a sorry to fifths of a second left before we hadn't hit. The jackpot knee would have died right then and. You know. So we try to get underneath that story which I think most people don't actually know and certainly don't remember knowing and one of the things it is story about when government was ambitious. This was president Kennedy saying, we really ought to do this and government got behind it and did it. And there was bipartisan support. It ran into a certain amount of budget criticism over time, but everything does. We just the kind of spirit of we can do this, and we in government can do this is something that seems to have disappeared. I think it's a spirit throughout the country. I think it was a time when people were asking what they do for their country rather than when their country could do for them. You know, Kennedy himself said, we do this, not because it's easy, but because it's hard and that's something you see very clearly in our film, and I find it more inspiring. The fact that Neil had such grace and his whole family to deal with these sacrifices. I mean, they lost their next door neighbor and Janet was close friends with Pat white. It It was. was horrible to watch, and yet they say persevered. That's something that I think is incredibly heroic incredibly noble and something we should look back on. And it's a deeply personal story, Neil Armstrong, I did not know this lost a baby daughter to cancer. I had no idea through you at the Toronto film festival. I met Neal's two sons and they told us told you how sheltered they were from the risks that their father was taken. Yeah, we cover that a little bit. We have a scene which is based on their own recollections of when Neil talk to them about what was going to happen when he went to the moon and and talk to them about the risks. But you know, I think minimized a little bit and again, these families, though they saw what happened next door. Everyone knew someone who had lost dad or husband. They lived close by these astronauts, they all lived in. They all lived right around Houston in new lived in log go, but they lived in little developments. So, yeah, had white died in the Bala one fire live next door. And they'd spend a lot of time there's they would work over each other's houses. So they're really a very small tightly knit community Josh singer. You've done it again. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. I really appreciate it. Tonight's last word is next..

If he had said OMG, you guys just finished caps death saying totally blood everywhere. People think it's a good. Bye to the experiences, shooting cap. It's not necessarily a, my character has died.

He will merely rent a farm where he will live happily ever after with Bucky and Peggy. Somehow those we are gonna be interesting. Hey, judgment. Not on the podcast as for sure this the safe-space your your cap Bucky Peggy fantasies, all good rights that's for the movie news time. Now over a second second-guessed week, Damian's yoursel is director of whiplash LA La Land. Those films a lot in common use of music j. k. Simmons for one and the book of five stars from empire magazine. And this week he becomes one the first directors in the long long time to have a run of three five star films spoiler alert because his new movie, I man about Neil Armstrong and the attempt to get American men on the moon. Did they succeed? Who knows who can truly say also got the big five ones as well just l. is a fascinating up and coming to keep an eye on him. He's going places we sent our Ben Travis along to talk to him when he came into London recently, do please enjoy so thrilled to be joined on the empire podcast by Damian Chazelle the director of whiplash threat you have lowland and now director a first man Damian how you doing? I'm good. Thanks for having. I mean, an incredible run of films that those three films that you've out like within the last five years or so from a from a British perspective, we didn't get guy Madeline on a park bench over here. So from perspective, those yorker like three first films and all three of those and by magazine have been given five stars. And there's been quite a lot of discussion in the office about this because we were talking and I don't think. Any director has ever had that streak from, especially that opening films we're looking even talking at in James Cameron, Danny Boyle, the none of them have managed that kind of yet three five films in a row, like how, how have you done it? I didn't know that fact. So that's that's nice to hear. Well, you know, I mean at the end of the day, it's it's it's, of course you know, subjective. Whether you know whether the movie's work or not. I guess for me, it's I try to just make moves. I would wanna see, you know, and, and so it probably all comes back to be a Sinophile. You know, for me, it's I grew up my whole life wanting to make movies. And so before I could kind of get my own camera equipment, I could at least watch movies..

"Luna rhapsody which Neil Armstrong played on the way to the moon. And it's used in the new movie I man, which is directed by my guest, Damian Chazelle who also directed LA La Land and wrote a two and also wrote and directed whiplash. Another thing. I found remarkable was that you were working on La Land before I man, but LA La Land wasn't turnaround. So like you hadn't really begun shooting. It right. Yeah. I I met Ryan to talk to him about I man. And so you know, that that was you know, few years into lava lands kind of languishing life. It was sort of, you know, just, you know. I've been trying to get a made for awhile and with no success in and through a lot of stops and starts and and and during that time, I I made whiplash. And then during the after that, I was given this book I man by Jim Hansen and fell in love with it. And and and went to Ryan and said, hey, would you be interested in playing Neil Armstrong? And he said, oh that sounds really interesting, and oh, by the way, I also hear your into musicals, you have a musical script. And I said, oh, yeah. You like musicals he said, I love Gene, Kelly, and we talked about jelly for few hours and suddenly the next year and a half of our life was not I man, but LA La Land. But as soon as LA was done this project had been kind of simmering in the background, and we jumped right into this. So finally, what brings you the most joy in the most anxiety and doing a movie like I man, which there's so much technical stuff. You have to do, you know with like sound effects and reproducing space capsules and space flight and creating. Replicas in real size. And then miniatures, it's it's it's. La La Land was a complex film. But that's like the choreography and the camera work and the dream sequences. This is like technically difficult in a in a whole other level. Yeah. I think everything you described gave me a lot of a lot of anxiety. A lot of sleepless nights. I think even more than that, you know, it was a little bit the the responsibility of the weight of history. And I think particularly knowing that an Ryan has said something very similar to knowing that Neal's kids, we're gonna see this film. You know, they've been very helpful with us all through the making of it. And and helping us get it. Right. But knowing that at the end of the day. This was a film that they were going to see and they weren't going to see a Stoorikhel figure on screen. They were going gonna see their mom and their dad. They're gonna see themselves. They're gonna see their family life. It. It was just a kind of responsibility. That certainly I hadn't felt before as a filmmaker. And I think it was a it was a good fire lit a fire under myself and all of us to just go that that much further work that much harder to really get it right and pay proper tribute to to these people Damian Chazelle.

"chazelle" Discussed on The Nerd Soup Podcast
"Active flow and today was fucking nonstop. And I'll just waiting for one tweet back from this guy. I never got it just hijacked my complain. I wasn't I wasn't. it up. I didn't really get you started off. I feel like he didn't hijack your. You just complaining about something else doesn't even involve saying, they know him on the podcast. You don't have to bring ignorant your fans and they wanna know they won't ask questions, I know, but it's I'm getting notifications all day. What's going on? You guys are text me in a fantasy. Football phone is gonna fucking explode today. A hundred messages in a fantasy group at the Twitter is going crazy. I'm not ready for this. The fancy chat. Oh. Even today was I can't deal with it by phone. Don't give up on like, do what you want. I don't care anymore. So there's that, okay. The first story we have today is little controversy surrounding the film. I man directed by Damian Chazelle the youngest director, I think to win best director at the Oscars starring Ryan Gosling. And I think Corey Stoll clarify halls. Oh, clarify, that's girl. Yeah, big time actress. So there's a controversy surrounding the scene in which Neil Armstrong and the boys. They get to the moon and they're like, oh, this is cool. We could see earth and the got the flag the American flag, and they're all back pocket and they planted on the moon. It's an iconic moment in American history and the director Damian Chazelle chose to omit this moment from the film. And it's been a lot of back and forth from both sides of the argument. Ryan Gosling came out and said, Neil Armstrong, never considered himself to be an American hero. You know what? It's speaking to his family's buzzsaw, Neil Armstrong sons have commented on it. I think Buzz Aldrin said something as well. But yeah, I. Oh, I don't know. I don't think this registers for me because I just don't hair. The same man who gives a fuck movie, let them do the what he wants to do. People try to hijack. It happens every fucking dance. People try to hijack the littlest things and politicize them. And it's so annoying at first when I heard it, I'm like, oh, it's kind of like the Lincoln route where you know how Lincoln should end, but they chose to omit. It's kind. I thought it was along the same lines, secretive decision just to you, comparing the flag being planted on the moon to Lincoln getting his brains blown out? No, I think I think he's he's just. just as significant Neil Armstrong movie, the Lincoln it's Lincoln, you know, saying that's the big time moment. Not him brains out. I'm no. How did they leave this. It's a big, say the cap, like the of the story pretty much use doing right now to, you know digging that the little thing. Well, yeah, he's just being a dick. That's actually he gave a little ackknowledgement towards me, but it was created decision. Like it's implied, y'all know, historic moment and that shows, yes, that's the thing. Maybe the what they're saying here Kubrick. Yeah. I seen the tweets coming out. I did not see this on Twitter. I swear it episode Seinfeld. Well, I didn't see it. Yes. So what's what's going on now? I really did not see this. I mean, obviously it's an easy job to make, but I've been saying this for a long time that I want Kubrick to come out at the end. It'd be like, surprise the focus call it. But no, I mean, listen, I don't have a problem with it. I think it's just crazy to think about how creative and like he had the the mind thing about not putting it in. It's like if I was making this movie like I. Oh, yeah shot, right. Yeah, that's a great moment, but he's choosing not to freeze frame. I'm the alarm. I seem I've story to tell you wait for the movie to come out and watch it. I mean, they're saying the American flag. It's all over the place..
Neil Armstrong’s Son, Director Damien Chazelle Defend Absence of Flag-Planting Scene in ‘First Man’
"Know yesterday we were, talking about the new Ryan Gosling movie, that's going to be, coming out this fall but. The about space called I man it's about Neil Armstrong the life of Neil Armstrong the first man to walk on the moon and he's. Already getting Oscar buzz for this movie will probably get a lot of, Oscar buzz it's going to be opening the Venice film festival coming up soon enough but there is one scene that is omitted from the movie that critics happened, to notice guess what seen it is. Think. About the. The landing on the moon iconic images that come to your mind One small step Think about all the things that you see when it's when you have The flag the ship the lunar Lander the. American flag, what the American flag, will not be put into the moon you know, as Neil Armstrong did, they're leading that out in the reason being is I. Guess it's twofold although they. Will get a lot of backlash for this I won't be seeing it one of the reasons is that they say as time has gone by. This is a representation of human achievement as opposed to just American achievement so What that is so bizarre isn't it it's it's weird. It's weird, and the different they, also say the other side of it being that, Neil Armstrong was very, understated very humble person who always felt like he was. Getting too much attention because. He was just the tip of the iceberg he was the name but there were forty thousand people all around the world who had worked toward. Getting To. A position where we could actually pull off something like this well that's nice Ryan, Gosling Canadian said you know sort of joked that he was okay with a bit of a different perspective and an opening. It up a little, bit more to just global citizens and not just being a Mark of American achievement

"But by the way, this just in a bunch of release date news just hit t the top gun sequel maverick has been pushed from July two thousand nineteen to June two thousand twenty and a quiet place. Sequel has been. Aided for may fifteenth two thousand twenty. I guess there's probably not much to talk about their, but I thought I'd mentioned it since you know, it broke wall. We were on the air. Let's let's get their last and final story because we are running a little late on this podcast and that is that I man has had its first screenings in the early buzz is through the roof. Each t you did a roundup of all the reviews and all the reactions. What are people saying about? I man fell Damian Chazelle latest movie. I man debuted at the Venice international film festival, and critics are over the moon for it. No one laughs at. Okay. Oh, I was laughing on. So critics are calling it a revelatory and spectacular drama of righties Owen Glieberman called it the a a space drama that makes a poll thirteen look like a puppet show. The playlists calls. It's a, it's a giant leap for the Apollo eleven mission and satisfying Lee old fashioned ethic that will be may well become the definitive moon landing movie. People are praising Ryan Gosling and Claire foist performances around Gossen player plays Neil Armstrong in this bio pic. And generally everyone is just universally praising this film. A few people are somewhat device a divided on the sort of dizzying in your face. Editing that this film employs and some of the more visceral set pieces. But over overall people are really in in a really positive about this film. I am so excited for this film, especially after seeing that. I max preview that I talked about previously on slash daily. I am a little curious how you know there isn't really a lot of drama with this mission, and I am. I'm really wondering what like the climactic sequence of this movie is, but I'm glad to hear that people are digging it Ben. Are you excited for? I meant I'm very excited, but I'm also like you very curious as to you know, like the the drama isn't is this mission going to work because it's based on a true story and we know that it does and it's not even like Apollo thirteen where it's like, you may have heard about the story, but seeing the actual bones of how they manage to fix their problems out in space and and figure out a way to get back to earth is like the interesting part of it this. It's like, I, I'm not. I'm yeah, I'm I'm a little concerned or not gonna turn, but but curious about like what exactly the dramatic tension or conflict might be in this. Movie, but I'm very excited been excited ever since it was first announced in searing. These these reactions is mixed me look forward to it even more h. How about you. I'm very excited for this film. I'm kind of hit or miss Damian Chazelle. I am really enjoyed whiplash, and I felt like I was entertained by lowland. I felt like it was sort of it was definitely a little derivative, and sometimes it points felt more image than movie, but I am really excited for this film because it kind of has him stepping away from his jazzy roots and I really intrigued by people's descriptions of the sort of more visceral tone. I kind of reminds me of what the reactions to Dunkirk were and like how that kind of play over as a war film in that was more about the experience than anything. And I read the description saying that it's more about setting you in the mind of Neil Armstrong and like that really claustrophobic atmosphere experience that he has while being launched into this like tiny space, kin tan, tiny space tin into the moon. So I'm wondering if that'll be the case and I'm really excited to see it. I mean, definitely what you're describing is what I saw on that I'm ex preview, which is. Has me so excited for this film as a as a space geek..

"And it just like it is seems weird to me to not right and direct yeah it really does i mean the the best people um for example will i do in my time a lot of the time is printed out feature scripts and read them and so i just printed out whip lashes script menzo damien damian chazelle on his name i think energy is up the director yet damian chazelle writer and director of whiplash and also la la land okay and you know he writes and directs and he he knows what he writes and he knows what he directs and that's really big because interpretation of a director of whatever writing was can dramatically change a scene and one of the best things to watch on youtube is how a director blocks a scene because the fantastic video i don't remember uh who is by but you just have a script you have no direction you have no tone written you just have line by line by line for about three pages it's in this police station and you can see how you know one of them is just an office to people talking one of them is you know these the detective in the chief walking through the the office from another one is in an interrogation room and they're all the same script and the words are all the same but the dynamics between the actors and how comes off is completely different so the script didn't even specify the location losing.
