"Order in? I ordered online and then I went and grabbed it. From the Burbank location, for whatever reason, they weren't taking pickup orders from Hollywood for whatever reason. I don't know, it's not closed, is it? I was wondering that. I used to live near there. And I wonder what the dome and everything being gone. The dolma shut down in the arc. The ArcLight is shut down, and I'm like, yeah, I'm wondering the same thing. I mean, horror Ramadan. All those business businesses right there. I'm sure in supposedly the domes coming back wags, don't miss supposedly coming back. Maybe this year, maybe this summer, that's the rumor, is that the company that owned it is going to the ArcLight cinemas is gone, but they're going to keep didn't like a Tarantino or somebody like that, buy it? No, Tarantino Tarantino bought. New Beverly and another one he bought over here. Maybe the vista? Yeah, the vista. Yep. Okay. As the fit, wait, yes. Already buy Los feliz three. No, he bought another company took over the Los feliz three two. A lot of great theaters just fucking shut down, including the UCB theater, also shut down. All right. I can't get caught. I've been looking here. I can't get Intel on whether or not the veggie grill by that cinerama dome theater by the now closed arc light is open or not. It looks like it says it's open, but it doesn't necessarily let you order pick up online. So maybe that's what's going on. Here's the thing with UCB Franklin getting shut down. I'm like, hey, I want to pick up a copy of Martin and orloff today. But where? But where? And I go over there. What did you find it? Franklin's closed. No. You want a deep baby. 24 80 P DVD. I ran into roloff. Burned through because I watched him at times hard balls, so. Wow. There was a Christmas where my mom gave me basically every DVD that they sold at the front at UCB theater. She like, and it was like such a weird thing where I was like, how did she even find out about these movies? But she gifted me one bundle of Christmas. Like it was like 5 DVDs and one present. You know what I mean? And I was like what is this? Michael, I stopped by the UCB theater for Christmas. I got you blackballed..

"Okay, Chris, you're up. You have number two. I'm going to pick the movie that I had the most fun watching in 2018, and that was Mission Impossible fallout. Damn it. Good one. This is fucking fighting some bathrooms. This is just an amazing Mission Impossible movie. What an incredible shout out to the cinerama dome experience of just getting your wig pushed back by Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill fighting. This was the mcquarrie mission impossibles of kind of found like a new gear for these movies, but I thought even this by those standards was just like a cut above. And I think I saw it at least twice in the theaters. I may have seen it three times that year or once it finally came out on streaming or whatever, but God damn it. Mission Impossible fall. We've talked about it endlessly, but this is just an awesome, awesome blockbuster. So I'll go there. Amanda, do you remember how we started? Yeah, this was our birthday movie. Chris saw it with us. We saw it in the arc light. It was delightful. We got beers and everything, and then I had to go to the bathroom so badly, but I was like, no, I can't miss a minute of these two people fighting on a cliff with a helicopter. And then we've got sushi afterwards for dinner. It was awesome. The one thing I will say about these movies and especially fallout is if you read the synopsis, you're like, sir, excuse me. 18 different side plots about plutonium and then going to like a refugee camp and Kandahar or whatever and you forget when you're watching the movie because the stunts are so incredible and the set pieces are so incredible. But there's some absolute nonsense in these movies, but I love it still. One of the more underrated aspects of this movie is Sean Harris return as Solomon lane. Terrorizing Ethan hunt's dreams just wonderful movie. Okay, so I have two picks. I'm Kristen and select a category for that one. Blockbuster. Blockbuster. Okay..

I was expecting it to be seamless. Yeah well they needed to go digital is what they needed to do. And then you won't have that jitter from the the project about a year and a half to go see it and you're sitting in the theater with everybody else and all of a sudden the screen opens up and it's so impressive. Isn't that cool. I it looks like believe it or not. There's good news for the hollywood cinerama dome. it looks like a. Amc is going to take over the arc light complex and may in fact reopen it. So amc's acquired pacific theater. So i'm hoping that they reopen it. It's been up in the air. And of course a lot of people in the movie industry have been very upset because that was of course that's legendary. It appeared in a lot of movies itself on sunset. Boulevard there A format blu.

I was having problems with. Adcp the ca. Yes yes well. I couldn't find a way to hook up my system to where i didn't have to go through my receiver though the arc inputs. So we're could get everything linked together but i started playing with the switches and the hd cables. I found a way cooked up the dish network receiver directly to my television. Yeah the sound for the sound. I went directly to the receiver by the are and everything works perfect good. And how's the lipsey.

He'd he'd sit there and eat paint away. He do these glass shots. Matte paintings i now. He's kind of lost art now. Oh he was like the best he was like. You know now they do digital matte paintings but at that time it was a real sheet of glass and he'd bring it out on the set and he wanted up and look at it and paint and just the parts needed. And then you'd leave the rest of it clear so that you could shoot threaten. Do these things and yeah. This was back when special effects was a real hands on art yet.

"Scotch stopped scotches got scott aired. Goes down down such a great movie. By the way i went on a date for that movie and we saw it at the at the arc light in hollywood on the big gigantic screen. The the dome dome yes cinerama dome so. I'm in there on a date. It's i ate god. I wish i could remember. That guy's name i'm laughing my ass off and he gets up and walks out of the theater saying i don't think this is funny and i was like i. I don't think we have anything in common. Why are we even on a date. If you don't think anchorman is funny. You're not my type if you haven't seen the godfather or have you come back and watch the godfather yet. Yeah yeah. I've seen those. Oh lindsey hasn't hasn't seen right. Well i mean it's a it's a guy who actually. I talked to paul reiser. Yesterday another great guy movie is Diner one of the great movies of all time. Unbelievable movie unbelievable but very much a guy movie. You don't hear women say hey. I really believe what about that. Alan meanchey question. The wedding is off exactly exactly that way that that movie is fantastic. Hey i came across something inch you know. I love the origins of expressions expressions. Come from so. I wanted to give you one. This is a common one not playing with a full deck. Not playing with a full deck. Everybody knows expression people say. I don't play with the full deck so i'm going to read this Here's where that expression comes from. There was a tax back in the day levied when purchasing player cards playing cards but only applicable to the ace of spades. So you can get a deck of cards but the tax would be paid on the ace of spades. So a lot of people would say. I'm going to save that money. I'm only going to buy fifty one cards. So people who were playing with fifty one cards and refused to pay the tax on the ace of spades were viewed as not playing with a full deck. I've never heard that before. Yeah yeah no. That's absolutely true. Alan you sniff that.

"But lindsay dethroned you as the smartest person on the show. Yeah i still don't believe that is true. I still believe on the smart goal like. Sat scores on the smartest person on the show. I want to take the sat so we could take it now. What what's your as you lose your house. Et yeah we didn't have to take the sat's what would act. Yeah i don't even remember. I got on that i'd have to look at. I know it was pretty good. Shot me a thirty nine on that shami. Thirty on the act. It's pretty smart. Pretty smart. I i hate to start the chill. I don't want to start by bragging. About how smart i wanna brag about. How dumb i am. I love the dumb fun of f nine fast and furious nine. It is so much fun. It is just a big stink in dumb ass movie. It's great. I've got expect that i thought it was just like typical sequel. A lot of stuff blowing up a lot of people and that was it. Well that is what it is. I mean it is. It's more of the same. I mean it's exactly what you want from from fast next. I liked the other eight. I'm like you you like seven of the eight. The guy from tokyo drift does show up. Lucas black. I think his name he shows up in this. Everybody i mean everybody is in this one including not chasing stadium but john cena who's great in it and jason state them in it. No jason state from the the sneak preview for fast and furious ten which happens at the end of the movie. But i got two words for you i. I don't wanna spoil anything because although it did like seventy eight million dollars or something this weekend. So it's a gigantic movie but car. Magnus car magnets are fantastic. Gigantic magnets that can suck in a car. You that's not a spoiler. It's it's in the trailer. It's it's in the trailer but it is a fun. Movie is fun go back. I actually went twice this weekend. I went to the actual theater twice. Correct this one is not streaming. You have to go to so fast we all right. Tell me about that. People wearing mass inside the theatre or no no. No nobody wearing masks. No nobody wearing a mask. The staff was all wearing masks. Like social distancing or no no for was with year the theaters completely. Full no no they were. I think people are coming to the movies. Go very slowly. Although i i saw the movie at the landmark which is generally kind of an art house they happen to be playing f nine so i don't think the landmark crowd was especially rushing out to see vin diesel about the family. I don't think that was necessarily their thing. So i am sure there were full theaters of did seventy million. There were full theaters somewhere in america this weekend. And i you know what. I've i've come around to the fact that i think movie theaters are make it. Movie theaters are going to right now. Here's a question which one of the one of the big theater chains went bankrupt right. So like the arc light. That's by me is still closed correct. And they're not reopening really. Yeah they're not reopening. Somebody else will have to step in and take over that. I know you you're dan manhattan. Beach called arclight beach. Cities are culver. City closed arclight. Hollywood closed with the cinerama dome. Hopefully that will reopen. But no that chain went belly up during the pandemic. And i understand why but you know what people are going to go back. I mean there were groups of there was a group of probably twenty people at the fast and furious screening on saturday that i went to mean you know all this talk about the world is going to be completely different on the other side. I'm starting to think the world is going to all exaggerated that the world is actually going to go back to being kind to exactly like it was before we thought we'd still be wearing masks like in two year old. We'll always wear masks like in the future. I think people are still going to wear masks on planes. Yeah i'll wear one on a plane. Our when i none of us were require me. You might as well not catch a cold or whatever i mean. It seems like it's it seems like it's a reasonable thing but i'm not wearing a mask the rest of the time. I mean there are still people. I went and hid at the driving range yesterday. And there's still people wearing masks out there. I'm like it's out. I assume if you're wearing a mask that you weren't vaccinated if you're wearing a mask. I'm on the assumption that you're not vaccinated because everywhere it says you're allowed to skip the mask if you have been vaccinated so when i see a mask i think maybe that person didn't get their shots or maybe they're one shot or something like that. So yeah now. I i think the world is coming back in a real and meaningful way and i don't think all the things we expected to change are necessarily going to change. Do you I think there is going to be after-effects. Tell me what the difference is like. I'm been to a bar yet if you No but i'm not a big bar or been to indoor restaurants abundance anyone sitting at the bar when you're at the restaurant trying to think no not just sitting at a binding i think bars are a casualty of the pandemic. Now that doesn't mean they won't eventually come back but they're just not back yet. I i've got friends in west hollywood. Who saying you know. It was big pride weekend. Bars were full. Bars were full in west. Hollywood the because it was pride weekend. So yeah i mean i i feel like i feel like it's it's like summer for real. It's like it's officially summer in the world is open backup and it's the roaring twenties here. We go it's gonna be wild everybody's going out and seeing everybody yesterday don tony.

"I haven't been back to the state since i haven't been to sit a with ron and russell watches crazy. Listen edgar let me just pitch this idea because you know things are going very well for you. Have this movie coming out last night. And so if you could just by the cinerama dome we could. It's available now. You could just go watch it. There is that a unreasonable. Just come on. Come on. And i think people on on twitter underestimate how much money i have. How can you say no to wait. Wait they overestimate the overestimates right. I roam it's like. Witnessing ramadan thing happened suddenly people said hey. Can you not just by sitting around within the hollywood like yes. I have tens of millions of la real estate money to and and operating capital. Yes good tax deduction though so you know that's not a bad idea. That's not a bad idea. I i mean i listen. Everyone loves the movie and rightfully. So it's it's so good. This movie is so. It's artistically inspirational. But just i love it. It's just you know. Even though the movie has its ups and its downs. It just feels good like the movie just feels good does it does it. Is that how you perceive the story yourself a greg. Why i guess part of the inspiration for it was the Having so band. I kind of like you know like it like a superfan fan when you five suddenly like very aware response what they look like and what they sound like and then of over the years being so of an ongoing kind of like turning into like a long light fan obsession. I think like one of the reasons. I wanted to make the documentaries. I felt that run russell in this century since two thousand Beethoven had so just kind of like flying in the face of the trajectory of any other band. Been going that long. I can think of anybody else that was like he was bringing out new material so regularly that was as good as if not better than the in big embiid inverted commas golden period. I think we did like. I think it's fair to say. I'm gonna speak on behalf. They don't like to think of a goto period because of all goethe's so so to me. That was the thing that was amazing is but most like bands going through slowing russell. Have i feel that will run. A rustling been doing is to be loaded too so keep kind of pushing the boats out like keep doing what they wanna do. And just saying to the audience catch up and i think that's something that most bands don't do that to nevis kinda lose an audience at russell have ever done that. All not like Liberals you know well. I wonder also because you know if you're so tied to a result of something where you know it's like oh i guess we live or die by this thing whether we lose a thing or get a thing. Then you probably are in a constant state of fear to try new things. But ron and russell you constantly even even when stuff succeeds ugo. While i. we can't do that again. we have to. We have to keep moving forward and exploring. And.

Old new england like coastal community. That's not that we're going well again. That is that is so damn quaint. That if the if the if the establishing shot of this community were in like the first act of a movie. You know that the subtext would be. There is something desperately wrong underneath acquaint of this dark dark. Miss stephen king's more girls moving. Okay so far so good. It's already almost two in quaint. But now what did they do this. They start their starting filming tomorrow today and yesterday. What do they do in the park right across the street. They needed a damn gazebo their gazebo. Well every zibo so who is in this who is in this movie that Burton has to be timber kevin bacon. It's being directed by cure sedgwick. You know you know you have to meet him. Because because then you enter the bacon. Six degrees of kevin bacon. You you mean. Kevin bacon coming no more than three steps from everyone one node. Yeah you'll one node so here. It is essential because his wife. So it's a it's a husband wife team yup. I wonder if it's draft. There is a show tv show that he's in his takes place in boston. I wonder if it's a party or but you know it it it is. It is a movie we also. I also found out that I i guess the tax advantages in this state are really really good because there's a sequel to To hocus pocus and part of it is going to be filming. Maybe ten miles away from me. The cursor living in a quaint town acquaint desperate for hollywood money. Hey that owns things that because he bows in the dumpster after this filming. I'm taking it in them navigate from my living room. I think every ten should have a gazebo park. I mean come on where you gonna have. The the fourth of july attributes we try we. Do you attract barbershop quartets. And then will sweet add a line. So you've heard that movie theaters have been closing People are wondering what are we gonna do with all these movie theaters of the most significant one i think is the old Grummin chinese theatre which There's also the cinerama dome in l. a. but here is a beautiful theater the in los angeles the towers theater look at this. That is being turned into has been turned into an apple store right next to the reality. Oh look at that. I could good on you apple. They preserve the the marquee sign They have Been apple's done this in a couple of places there's I in Coventry gardens is a pretty gorgeous one in in london. As well as there's the one in downtown. Paris is quite look at this. Look at this. This is the this is the actual movie theater. and it's the lobby preserve the balcony put in parquet floors. I mean this is craig. this is just. It's it's they're twenty six store in la so it's But i just think they've done a lovely job so you know i'm glad to apple. Somebody's preserving hollywood's history. The tower is that money for good. Yeah yeah that's why it was kind of disappointing that so google open their. I like apple rip store like the first real one not a pop up and all they did was they just sort of like renovated space that was vacated by starbucks in the transportation building that is like already google headquarters. So i'm not saying there. They're under an obligation. But this is opportunity to rescue and rehab a building. That hundred years old has lots of beauty lots of natural significance. You would think that i. It's it's good. Pr you're you're creating. Whoa great things about what apple is doing and what google could have done is that we're losing all these gorgeous. Uh a public spaces review if you go back to especially in new england. You'll see like a post office. That was built a hundred years ago and you can tell that the the thinking was well. Look this is going to be like the center of town activity. It should be a little bit. It should be a beautiful place to be the library. Boston public library which we've talked about so much. It should be like a cathedral for people to come and visit and now like the post offices are just even. The big ones are just like where you go to. Desperately beg a commissar for any information about your dissident uncle who disappeared last week. It's not a fun interesting place to be so. I love apple preserving these spaces where they're not nudging people out if you just want to sit in charge your phone sitting use the wifi for an hour to sit and take a class they don't check your receipts but it's a beautiful place to be. It's also there's a. There's a resonance because of course This this is one of the first theaters. I think we first talking. Pictures were shown It's it it you know. That was the art. Form the the primary art from the twenty th century and And it's it's suffering a little bit least theaters suffering a little bit in the twenty first century. So it's kind of appropriate that apple Would would take this over yet. Says the tower theater was the first theater in los angeles wired for films with sound just They've really done a stunning job. Actually i think looks better than say day to be To be honest with you We have we have technological advantages now. They restored glass. They restored all of the row. Cocoa plaster touches they. They put new crystals on the chandeliers This is you know. Here's here's what it's it's. I'm sure it's a money loser for apple. Although who knows they make more money per square foot than anybody but tiffany on their stores. But i would imagine it now. It's a destination isn't it on. It's also really good location for apple being that it is only about a block from pershing square. Which is a lot of good restaurants hotels right there. as well as Only probably it's it's an easy walk to the key the convention center so l..

Iconic Theaters in California to Close Over Pandemic Losses

"The pandemic has cost us a lot, but the hope that someday post vaccine we would return to our favorite places that hope has carried us through the hardest parts of these last 13 months. Well. News came this week that the iconic Arclight cinema and 58 year old Cinerama Dome in Hollywood would not be reopening post pandemic. In fact, the owners of ArcLight Cinemas and Pacific Theater said none of their locations would be reopening. Post Cove it. That's right. No more ArcLight caramel corn or movie pore size glasses of wine. Joining me to remember these theaters, particularly the iconic Hollywood location is Christy Lemire. She writes for Roger ebert dot com and Who hosts the podcast breakfast all day, and she's our regular one of our regular and most beloved film critics on Fridays. Hi, Christie. Hello, my friend. What a sad day it is. I know, And we have all spent so many glorious hours at the arc lights, especially the one in Hollywood. Talk about many, and yeah, from your perspective. So it's funny when you're a film critic, especially if you're a freelancer like so many of us are like you don't have an office, right? You watch movies at your house or you right at your house, and so going to the Arc light on a Monday night to see a big studio release, and all your fellow critics were there, and there's a buzz in the audience as people who love film You know, it's It's like going to your favorite office but also your favorite watering hole and there's such a great energy the minute you walked into that lobby with just the job. Soaring feelings and the huge marquee with all the times and the big clock, and you felt like you were walking into a cathedral of swords. And yet there's also a very intimate sense of community because you could go and have a bye deep beforehand or have a glass of wine afterward and talking about what you have just seen

"Blake Stubbs. We covered Chicago movies before we move on just real quickly. What's your favorite movie that was filmed and set in Chicago? Building said in Chicago. Oh, absolutely a thief. I love thief. I could watch Thief any day of the week. I'm a big Michael Mann. That too. I have to. I have to confess. But I also love his L a work one of my favorites of this past year. Was the trial of the Chicago seven. That was such a good movie Now. Was that ever in theaters? No, that was a Netflix produced. Well, okay. The short answer is no because it was widely released on Netflix. But it did. I believe do what a lot of films Netflix does do, and I think they were able to get a screen somewhere, so that if it was any pick up with the Oscars They can say it did have a theatrical release. It is the type of film that could maybe one day get a short theatrical relief. Um, because Netflix, you know will do that if it has to overcome any hurdles with criteria for awards submission, But honestly, this was produced to be released on Netflix. On guy thought it was an excellent pairing of Aaron Sorkin with the cast have to work with. I mean fashion. Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance. Why I could not be a bigger fan of I thought that this movie was maybe and again. This is Erin circuit of a bigger in circumstance. So over the many years I've tried to see his material age. You know? How does it aged with today's, uh, you know, current political climate. This was a movie that I think hit at a good time. I think this was a very well made production. I think that the cast was outstanding. And I think that if you like watching and listening there in Cirque and dialogue, it's filled with little Easter eggs that the fans are gonna love. Um, I know that at some point, it's like he needs to get some new Eastern, like, well, he puts him in there because they're Sure for the things you know, like it. Z like his language is his thing. But I found Sasha Baron Cohen on Mark Rylance, particularly to be outstanding in the incredible Sasha Baron Cohen. Wow nailed it. I'm absolutely huge favorite in that film for me was Michael Keaton. How cool was he? Yes, it is proof that an actor can take what I would what I would call a small amount of screen time because he wasn't like a main star of the film and make a massive impact and and proof that there are no small parts is small actors and Michael Keaton is more on the titan level, in my opinion when he when he gets the right We get the right material. He really brings the juice. I also wanna give a shout out to particular after that has been breaking out the last couple of years. Yeah, Yeah. Abdul Mateen, the second who was on watchman playing Dr Manhattan on HBO this last year. He's in this film. He will also be in the candy man film that will be released in 2021. This guy is outstanding. I have not seen him be bad in anything. Not that I would expect you to be bad, but I mean, he just every time I see him. I'm like, Wow, this guy's got it and and in this particular Film he was. He was quite a presence for the limited time he was given, because of course, these are all historical characters. So like if you're watching, and you know the story of the trial, the Chicago seven. He's only there for a particular short period of time. But what an impression in my opinion, one of the things you mentioned it was historical. The character of Lee whiner was totally different than what he really looked like. He looked like Abbie Hoffman's brother. He had the beard the Afro the whole nine yards. In the movie, he was clean cut. Which was, you know a bit of a stretch, and I think that was because he wasn't that big of a player. In the film on day and they didn't want to take away from Sasha Baron Cohen. I'm sure you know, I think I think they do. They kind of allow it toe visually. It's a downplay so that you know who do it just your focus to at all times, and that's one of those. Dramatic licensing issues that you'll run into. I think whether it's theatrical or cinematic. It happens all the time. Lee whiner on Ah, show Ah, great interview with him and he is such a cool guy. He is an incredible dude like a real deal, hippie and he was just so down to Earth and Oh, it was great. It was great. All right, before a couple more things about well, the year 2020 in in in film, the number one grossing star off 2020. I found was Samuel L. Jackson, who is in like four movies. He was number one, Dwayne Johnson was in number two stars making money out of movies. Right when you do for movies in the year, you're gonna make some money, right? Yeah. I don't know. You would hope you would hope? Yeah. Do you know I don't know if you saw there was a commercial with Samuel L. Jackson was for capital One who? He, You know he does commercial for him. With Santa and Santa was John Travolta. And they're talking. You know, Samuel Jackson makes a great offer from Capital one. And John Travolta says, Well, you know, that's a great offer, You know, have you are you have you been good? Have you done with the bad words? Those air? That's his question to Samuel L. Jackson. He goes, Yeah. Hit John Travolta as Santa wraps and says Ho ho. I don't think so. That was so hysterical. So I had to get I had to get that in. Um I know a big You're a big fan of this movie, which was incredible. It wasn't 2020. It came on 2019, right. Once upon a time in Hollywood. Yeah. So I am a big fan of once upon a time in Hollywood and in 2020, You know, everybody talks about how they were locked, You know, Shut in. You know, you had to find ways to escape. And what What is your form of escapism? I think became a question. Everybody in some form or another had the answer. For me. One of the pinnacles of it was two years ago have at this point. Now we're almost two years removed from it once from the time in Hollywood came out because it's you know, night 2019 was just a 2019. I was so excited for that film. I saw that film with the music box in Chicago. I saw it in 70 millimeter with a packed house full of people. It was probably my last Big cinematic experience, because I I come up to Chicago because I'm down in Peoria, but I went to Chicago for cinematic experiences all the time. Specifically at the music box. I love that fear. On For me. I feel like cinema is a great way to escape. Once upon a time in Hollywood is a big one. For me. I love the characters. I think the movie is goes on a bit of a wild ride, but I also just think it's about people at a certain point. And what Los Angeles in 1969 looks like a lot of the buildings and things that you see are still there, and they all look almost identical like the Cinerama Dome..

"Is quentin tarantino on the podcast for the first time and it'd be last tokyo ten films for his nine enjoy. We're delighted to be joined on the podcast for the first time we can't believe is the first time you've been on the apple podcasts lacasse quentin tarantino. Yes podcast all right so i know i know but you hear now as i am with <hes> once upon time in hollywood and you must be delighted with the reaction so far in the states the opening weekend your biggest yet yeah and also i guess generally do you keep your ear into the ground in terms of how people are reacting to the film as well. Oh yeah no. I mean we're here. Tuesday effort opened in america and so so just before i got on the plane on monday i wednesday i think today but i spent i spent the whole weekend going all over los angeles seeing it play at this plate the bruin where where she goes to the cinerama dome at my feet or the new beverly add so and and one of the things about my movies i have scenes where the audience is supposed to react either it be laughter or suspense since or exclamation points or whatever whatever the deal is so. It's pretty easy for me to walk into a theater and see whether or not the movies working or not because i have all these like <hes> signpost along the way yeah do you do you go up to the counter and go. Can i get into this movie for free ideas to try to sneak in without causing too much of a commotion at the new beverly europe anyway yeah exactly yeah. That's the one place i can't yeah i mean there are a number of of scenes i think that are designed to elicit that reaction from audiences as you say and i think it's hard to talk but it's moving away without really kind of starting with the the end <hes> in a strange way because much where you began when you first began to conceive this project in terms of refining what happened to sharon tate and chase bringing eh everyone else in the house on that night i get the feeling that you are gripped by a burning sense of injustice. Obviously what happened. The night is horrendous and you're using the the power cinema to rewrite history is is that we began. No that's kind of that really is i mean i guess the real beginning beginning was witnessing dynamic between an actor had been at things for a while and their stunt double that had been working for you know at least around a decade together you yeah so that's i think where i i came up with it and then when i but then once i actually started coming about putting together a story then yeah did come up with the end first and then work work work backwards to get to get there but yeah there is <hes> you can say i'm using the power of cinema to write bronx longs or whatever i mean i think the the sentence i would use is metaphorically saving sharon yeah.
