"I'm going to watch it because like you said, because it is so well regarded. There's a danger that you go into it and you go, this isn't for me. And it can simply be because of the genre. Natalie, my partner's not exactly a mob film genre, a lover. So she was kind of like, oh, do we have to watch this? It's kind of like, you're eventually when it's like trying to learn swim or ride a bike, eventually you're going to have to dip your toe in or get on that seat and pedal through it. Just see whether you come out and then go, you know what? I want to carry on pedal psych in pen cycling or I want to carry on swimming. I don't like swimming. So if you don't like the film, then it's not a big one. I'm not going to not give you but as long as you've tried it, that's the thing. It's avoiding that elitism because I think like you said a lot of these top teeth on the top 100 films you must watch before you die. Some of them are really difficult to sort of get through and some of them I don't want to, like I said, Citizen Kane. I don't want to. I just don't want to. If somebody wants to do one of these, like you, you want to straight through citizen gain them fine. We'll do it and we'll have open discourse about it. I think that's the thing. It's having open discourse where we can sort of say it wasn't for me, but I do have some criticisms, but we'll get to that much later. You said you told me just before this podcast started. This, like you've said, it's your favorite film, like what is it that schools say brings that the cast a crew bring to this film that makes it so unique, the writing or whatever it is, what's the genocide? I think it's hard to sort of nail because there are so many different elements. You've got everybody sort of giving their very best performances. When you look right the way through, you've got your Pesci who is fucking out. It's an incredible performance. It's absolutely incredible. And before watching this, when you first go on screen, I went, why is the guy from home alone in this? And then I was completely shocked that this was the same actor and then obviously got Robert De Niro, his performance is quite sort of measured, there's other performances out there where he is quite extreme.

"I'm sure many of you have noticed in the last couple years how drudge report has just become a left wing rag. It's unreadable. I used to go to drudge all the time. I don't go anymore. There's a new website, though, that is surging in traffic. They do a wonderful job of aggregation and staying on top of the news. It is citizen free press dot com. They're I have to tell you traffic is unbelievable lately. And the man behind citizen free press is someone just called Kane. You could call him Citizen Kane. He stays anonymous so that the left doesn't screw with him and that he's able to continue to operate the website freely to give an idea. Susan free press had a 169 million page views in the month of July. That is more than Politico, The Wall Street Journal Huffington Post, NBC News, TMZ, CBS News Daily Beast, ABC News, and more. And the man behind citizen free press, who is just called Kane. He lives in Bloomington, Indiana, and moraine anonymous for many reasons, of which I fully support, joins us right now. Citizen Kane, who runs citizen free press, how are you? Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks, Charlie. Glad to be here. And yeah, I'll touch on that a little bit. Look, from day one, I wanted to avoid any interaction with David Brock and media manner. And it's only grown in the last 5 years since I've been running the site, so it helps to stay anonymous. And somehow I've been able to do it for 5 and a half years. No one has no one listening has ever recognized that photo. Those are the colonnade of Thomas Jefferson's lawn in Charlottesville at the University of Virginia. So that's actually a reunion photo. So I'm a graduate of the University of Virginia. And used to be a progress grad, but in the new woke UVA, not so proud.

"So letter box just tiny eyes is it? Just makes it smaller and then puts a bar above and below, right? Yeah, yeah. And I mean, like, now with modern televisions, they're all that size. But people forget that, you know, like, old old cathode ray tube televisions were all square. Right. So it was like the only game in town, but now all TVs look like movie screens. But they also they saw the technology and they were like, oh, we can do things like different audio tracks. We can do director commentaries. We can do different angles, different this and that. So they started doing what? Extras? Extras, yeah, DVD extras. All that kind of stuff, they kind of pioneered that and they came up with that idea. And they made it really good. And they made a very nice package. And so when that format died in the 90s, they picked up DVDs. And so they made these DVD collection, they started putting them out in the 90s and just loading them up with special features and every DVD has an essay in it. It's been written by a film scholar or somebody who has a lot of knowledge on the film and sometimes there's a booklet with all kinds of information in it and I'll kind of get into some of the other things. But they just make these really nicely packaged DVDs and blurays now of what is and so what they put on there is just kind of the best of world cinema. So they will have movies from they'll have French new wave or a time near realism or samurai films from Japan or just like classic Hollywood films or kind of modern independent films. It's kind of a hodgepodge of a bunch of different things. And the only real criteria. So the criteria is that it is a really good movie. And that has lots of different definitions. So there's lots of reverses. So many definitions. Who what committee who determines that? I honestly don't know. It's kind of a black box as far as I know. I'm just kind of excited every time. So once a month on the 15th and I kind of like wait for the 15th and I constantly refresh their website, they announced what the new slate of films they release about four or 5 every month. Wow. And so on the 15th they'll say, these are the films coming out in three months. You could pre order. And often it's just like it's also like something amazing like last month they announced that they're finally putting out Citizen Kane, which was kind of a big deal. But then they'll also put out a million like a bunch of movies that I've never even heard of, not even begun to hear of like, it's this obscure independent film. There's a film made by Bill duke, who is kind of most famous for playing a lot of heavies in the 90s. He's in predator. Yeah. You know? And he made a movie with Lawrence fishburne in the 90s like a crime film. And I was like, I'd watch that. That sounds amazing. Yeah. You know, I'd never heard of it before. And that's kind of the beauty of the criterion collection is that as I've gone through it, I've found so many films that I never would have probably found otherwise. And so many films that are like my favorites films. And there's no you have to have won an Oscar to.

Are you a nervous flyer me not one on flying private no flame. I i get nervous when i'm on those regular people. Flights rain their germs. And oh absolutely absolutely their luggage.

Distilling company clermont kentucky. Hello the internet. And welcome to this. Episode of visiting ak dream trend or ak pets semi trendy aka the trends zone aka maximum oversight These are all from. Johnny davis stephen king steve trend king title. There we go okay all right. So you know. Stephen king yes i i don't know what didn't you just read a new book. Probably that commentary on our new fractured world. Oh really yeah. I have not kept up with all the word written by that. Man i am jack you are miles and these are some of the things that are trending. The taliban is trending because they've now taking kabul they're now in control of afghanistan. I feel like it's most. It was trending on the internet. Because at this point if you haven't seen an image of what the airport looks like in kabul your mom. I don't know maybe you're willfully trying not to see it because it is a harrowing but yeah i mean it's who thought that This spectacularly failed military mission from twenty years ago would end in just more trauma. And and it's it's really depressing to be on look at it and just to see the lack of options these people have and you can see it in how it's manifesting in their behavior and trying to flee or pull money out of banks all these other things it's the the thing with the people cling to the plane as it takes off his. Yeah does just like something. That's never gonna leave. The mind of anybody watched it. Yeah i haven't watched much of the normal mainstream media today. In like how vocal they are in terms of trying to tell the government that they absolutely need to go there to figure like you can't just leave these people like that left to die and allow you know the sort of mobility that women even had in the absence of the taliban ruling there and all that being reverse oh quickly. 'cause i mean right now i just see a lot of headlines like the finger pointing that's going on where biden or other pentagon people are talking about that with afghan military should've did well. They i think by the time they realized that we were pulling out in twenty twenty and like just how No one was listening to what they felt was like action needed to be addressed. The you know the clock began taking on how committed this army was to this new government which was not much at all and then on the other side of it yet. The taliban who've been waiting for this moment for like literal decades. Yeah the no win situation. That was kind of faded to end in a no win situation when america decided to go in there. Yeah and i don't. I can't imagine you know and i think if the seems like a lot of people can't just look at that and go my god. America is just such a disgraceful. Fucking country And look at what is happening to these people. People are immediately pivoting tillich. Joe biden really screwed this up or donald. Trump really screwed this up like please. If you don't don't put your head that fucking deep into the ground like that when it's so clear that like this aggressive foreign policy in style of occupying countries and bringing democracy quote unquote like works at dozen Maybe it did in the handful of post world war two germany and japan to a certain extent like since then. It's not happening now. The twenty fifth amendment is trending. Is that because of the kind of crumbling of afghanistan. yeah a lot of conservative. twitter is now saying twenty fifth amendment. Get him out of there. He's incapacitated he needs to be removed from office. Maybe i don't know but it's definitely this time. They're the ones screaming for twenty fifth amendment. And you know the all the revisionist history that's swirling through people's heads where somehow this started and ended with joe biden. But yeah that's that's that's all the energy around that twitter trend at the moment. Man just the same exact ship but on the on the opposite side is happening right now. And if you remember half of these people most most conservatives when obama was there like we gotta get out of afghanistan right we gotta get out. We got to end with these forever wars but not the concept of a forever war just as end this specific one. But let's not actually try and make something make it right or be who started critical of it. George bush but yeah and this is just cyclical and it. You know i think only now. I'm seeing like the washington. Post is trying to press like to be more like forceful and asking the white house to do something is there. Are there like some high profile like flubs that they're pointing to when it's a when they're trying to suggest that he's not mentally capable of running the country. It's the same things like you know how he'll miss speak about stuff or you know but i think mostly it's just more being brought like. How could he think this is right. See this is why. He's probably incapacitated mentally ep. People got citizen. Kane is trending for some reason. I guess criterion collection. Dude fucking four k. Two citizen came four k. You ready for this. I'm really not okay. Because i haven't even focused seen the movie.

"It's actually. It's just if the headline is big enough. The story is big enough. Final vettix on this so. I came into this. You didn't ask. But i'll tell you that i came into this with a lot of resentment felix because i took a film class in college thinking. This'll be an easy a. It was just watching movies. How hard could it be. And it was the worst grade. I got in all of college and we watched citizen kane and i didn't get it. I watching it again. I was like oh did not get it. And i blame the teacher. 'cause all he talked about was the cinematography but anyway i enjoyed it but i would've rather watch something else like it just doesn't i mean it's just doesn't hold up to my standards in in two thousand twenty one of what is an entertaining film. Although it gives you a lot to think about. I'll say that i'm gonna come out. You know we we also in this season. Watch the undisputed masterpiece that is parasite. And it's just your constantly ordered about like. How tight is how well-structured is how well written is and i'm sure there's a million ways in which bungling how is indebted to austin wells and in which none of that would have been possible without kane and kane. Is this sort of like fountainhead. From which all great cinemas somehow flows. But you know you stand on the shoulder of giants in the land and where we're at now in terms of the craft of movies is just far from where we were in nineteen forty one. I think where we were in nineteen forty eight with far advanced from where we were in nineteen forty one that he had to invent a whole bunch of stuff just hasn't been invented yet. And it's to ben's point it's it's still says a lot about media and wealth. I think yeah. I'm kind of with you. The as i'm not gonna put up there in in Masterpiece pantheon. i'll put out there in this sort of influential renton. But i would like to see a movie. Made now about one of these media moguls. That's like a thinly veiled portrayal of ben is looks doubtful but choon for season three slate money succession. I mean it is. That's what succession is although no but sort of bio-pic of yes is something then could it. I was looking skeptical. Because i think like murdoch's life really isn't that interesting aside from his work from the outside from the outside we'd have to figure out what makes them like that. Some the redstone had a more interesting life right the dramatization. If the life of someone redstone would be soup if fun to watch. Yeah i want that. Putting out a call to anyone listening to please jen up that screenplay and get that going because that could be fun you could put some cgi in there to make it even funner right. Ben smith thank you for coming on. Slow money has been awesome to have you. Thank you guys for having. that's it for citizen kane. Next week we will be back with.

"Because i think you know apropos. Emily's twelve year old son came to a modern sensibility is a little bit. Did you whisper boring. Emily allowed to say that will slow. It's slow it's a little bit ponderous. It has fun comedic moments. But it doesn't have fun comedic pacing and i guess it was revolutionary or innovative at the time for the cinematography and gregg toland and these long shots like the one of cain playing in the snow as a child while his mother's talking to the banker and the law. Like you can focus on window which is like you couldn't do that in nineteen forty one. But then he did. And that's all cool. But like in this house we just watched black widow and scarlett johansson falls through this guy. Dodging like things that are blowing up and fires and stuff and that's more compelling to watch. Let's just be honest. I feel like talk about marvel a lot on slate money. I don't know what's happening to me but anyway it is a little bit of a boring movie like it's enough already calling it. The greatest of all time. I feel like it's time to move on from that. I do think that like it's hurt by that label to some extent the you put on and you're like oh. This is a great cinematic masterpiece. Need to sit down and pull myself a glass of whisky and admire the greatness of the art and it does make it a little bit harder to just appreciate it as a movie but Early around in this season. We watched the fountainhead. Which was made a years later. Something like that seven or eight years later. And it's much lighter on its feet. You wouldn't imagine a very long movie. Written by iron rand with contractual obligation to keep every single word that she wrote and not allowed to change it to actually be in many ways lighter and more watchable than this movie that is meant to be like the perfect encapsulation of what cinema cannon should be and i guess even at the time people didn't like it so much. I think it was so great until like french. Critics got a hold of citizen kane. This is my like half hour internet research. I did yesterday but yeah it wasn't considered the greatest movie until i guess a little bit later like the nineteen fifties and some french critics and filmmakers were like this is an incredible movie and then it kind of started moving up the french have a much higher boredom threshold when it comes to movies interesting. Am i wrong about this. The great european house movies. I mean ben. You take into these as a kid right then. Not exactly. American screwball comedies. Don't feel i think. I don't feel entirely qualified to sweeping statement. Something totally steve. Jim enjoy what we do. I made my daughter. I think when she was fourteen watch breathless. And i think she thought it was weird and romantic. Great which is what it is going to avoid making sweeping statements. I mean i do think a lot of this stuff often. There's a like obviously incredibly influential and wellness incredibly influential. Their generation of movies and many of the movies made after the modem a dad. And so that's i think always you're balancing like influence versus sort of what's fun for twelve year olds watch now right. There's a difference between entertainment and historical importance serve landmark moments. You don't necessarily come to a movie and not to appreciate those things watching it that every subsequent filmmaker was copying all the certain elements of it. You can take for granted. One thing that emily no picked up on an i did too and i wanna ask about is. What did you make of the character of ben stein. And did you consider it to be like an amazingly positive representation of judaism in the movies which was hit two for non-existent or was it like an incredibly bad antisemitic caricature also in the middle. You know i mean it certainly like a pre holocaust movie. And i do think that there's a kind of ethnic. i mean. there are all sorts of ethnic jokes that made movies to this day. Maybe diminishing but that people are a little more careful bet juice and i suspect he was taking the time a very sympathetic portrayal and he basically was but obviously also relied on certain stereotypes..

"I have no idea what they're doing like. Why did they cover. I don't cover the richard branson launch wall but it was on my theory why jeff gets more coverage blow news. We is very slow news moment. Newspaper closes weekends. No journalist fucking the weekend. Many let's be honest. There are a lot of real life citizen. Kane's to this very day. Eighty years later like the story of the man who didn't get loved enough as a child and craves love for his whole life and ruins. People's lives is timeless but they portrayal of the media in this movie is kind of timeless to is the message. I'm getting from you folks here. Nothing will change like awesome wells. Got it right in nineteen forty one and it will remain right in perpetuity. As emily was saying earlier. I do think that the notion that a lot of these things that we tribute to the internet predate the internet is like a good reminder at least yes sensationalist media and news definitely predated may have caused a war unclear right in the spanish-american more i mean that a lot of people are blaming like judy miller in the new york times asserting the iraq war i'm in part of the fabric of things read to pick a cause is here's a spokesman for the new york times i feel obliged to. It's the high profile media columnist for the new york times. It is now officially your job to stand up and defend the new york times against all attacks on a domestic. That is the most annoying part of this job. I have to say it's interesting. That i was just thinking. There's of an absence of other kinds of media. I mean the nice thing about isn't he schematic and simple. There's little going on in a way. There's so few chapters is occurs aren't really other forms of there's no radio was obviously the really and if you were having conversations in the twenties and thirties about the power of media and the scary power of media you were talking about radio like all the conversation. We're having now but the internet we're about the radio of course knows this better than anyone. The center of all of them because he before he does cain and he came at the age of twenty four but even before he does cane. He does war of the worlds. Which is this radio. Play saying oh my god the aliens were invading and it is so very similitude. Ns that like people genuinely think that the aliens are invading and they start panicking because they hearing on the radio the aliens invading. And i think that is awesome. Wells is real sort of moment. Eye-opening moment of the power of media. I mean it's so. Have you listened to lately. It's so great. And i think it's a little unclear to the extent to which most of the audience was on the joke but there were some newspaper reports about people. I mean it was actually one of these classic things. It's it remains a subject of dispute whether the audience was tricked or whether the audience got it but it was a great story that the audience thought that the aliens were invading and ran out into the streets and miss started shooting at clouds or whatever and it was in some newspapers and politicians then saw it in the newspapers and held hearings about it. There was discussion of regulation and it was a classic one of these media cycles but it remains a little. I think unclear how widespread it was. The people didn't realize it was a radio. This is the equivalent of those like internet journalists. Who find random tweet from someone with five followers and they blow it up into people saying on the internet and then there were like parliamentary hearings. Used to be called man on the street. I definitely learned in school. That happened like i was taught that in american history i think in high school that orson welles made people think aliens invaded america. Or the earth rather of aliens of the earth or your jersey princeton. So i guess yea. He understood the power of the media narrative. Let me just for your listeners. Like adds a piece of media. It really holds up. I mean it's amazing. You listen to better. Than than cain it. Hold up from my better than like any piece of audiovisual content from that period.

"Kind of thing. We are going to be interested in from now on. Oh and i want to talk about that too like this like american thing of like a movie about a you know a very rich white guy told in the most sympathetic way possible even as he does like kind of bad stuff is interesting. Soli american. not that's just my perspective because the american like bootstrap part although what am i saying. Citizen kane is not bootstrap easy. Some guy had the colorado load which is a funny thing to say and then he became rich through no fault like he didn't do it at all he just inherited it. All is giving it all in his twenty fifth birthday. And he had this massive wealth on his twenty-fifth became like the sixth richest man in america on his twenty fifth. A i'm but there is this one tiny corner of my wealth which happened to own. A newspaper randomly probably brought in a foreclosure auction or something. I know i'm going to have some fun with that in the bank. That's just fun you'll to be having fun to be a rich person. People having been a newspaper isn't a toy that's every rich guy who buys a media outlet doesn't this don't we see this today with the new republic and what are some other. Ben we'll talk about. Jared kushner buying the observer shape penzone buying up like all of hollywood media. Kind of american isn't it. Oh yeah and they want to own a newspaper. The temptation to metal is just so irresistible is it is so much power and newspapers. I mean the thing about the news. Media also can cause enormous amounts of trouble for rich people who are otherwise shielded from it. So they even know. These aren't the way to make money. This is the way to control the story. And and wheeled power. I think like it gives the rich people who do terrible. Things have kind of appreciation of the media. Because it's like the one institution that doesn't always bend to their. Will it a harvey weinstein. Jeffrey epstein were the investors and talk for instance. And this does remind me of that. Whole chapter of the brad stone book. About jeff bezos way. He really uses his ownership of the washington post to his advantage. When the whole news of the fabrics. Yeah itself is like a noble journalists type. Put all of these rumors about him being hacked by the saudis because they didn't like him because of the kashogi coverage and completely untrue. Yeah no it was incredibly cynical. It's like he had gotten all this kind of goodwill from buying the newspaper not that long earlier and just immediately cashes at all in to cover up a totally random and meaningless personal foible random but it wasn't meaningless not to list the post is doing wall-to-wall streaming coverage of jeff businesses. A blue origin launch. They have the exclusive. It's very impressive that they got that taken a lot of a lot of hustle actually a little hard to shop. But i found that kind of shopping. It's one of those things where you bend over backward to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest for awhile and then maybe because you're taking heat for it any way you stop trying..

"And in real life too like hearst would call if his paper published bad review of marian davies a movie he would call the editor and be like. I think you've made a mistake. And they would run a correction. I hopefully today so amazing. I would love to be a position to make people do that. Well i mean barack error in your review is very murdoch qian move phoning up the editor and telling them what to print in american media to publish his new that but not quite as over to bow to anymore. Do they ben. In american sort of highbrow white glove broadsheets. People don't do that. But i think only there in in three newspapers and i don't think in Yeah i i think we have an illusion about adelson. Owns the las vegas review journal and tells him to write something about israel. Like that's what they're gonna do right. oh reflect the block family which owns the toledo. Paper asked them to write a society column about the party. They just had they do. It should pick up the toledo paper enough as a former concert of the roger. Ailes putnam county news and recorder. There was never doubt about who was cooling. The editorial line like the toledo blade is a great newspaper that has won pulitzers but also run society. Columns owners part. Is i think like actually. That's not that weird. When you want a newspaper it turns out. You wanna impose your will on it. The one thing. I didn't understand about the susan. Alexander plot in citizen kane was when the guy jebediah canes. Bff is writing bad review of her performance at the opera house but like gets really drunk and passes out like in the middle of writing his like lead trashing her performance or whatever and then charles foster can read the review and feel sad about it and then finishes the bad review and publishes it. Fires his friend right. I understand firing the friends got it but why finish the bad review and publish it. What was the point of that. That just seems like. Isn't that the outcome he did not want. I didn't understand. I'm sorry. Ben to bring up psychological things again but boy motive. What is his motivation. There why was he publishing that like. Is there some urge in charles foster kane to like inflict punishment on himself. I didn't understand that part at all but we can gloss over it as the film. Does i mean i agree with you. I mean i guess. I saw it in some ways. His sort of feeling like some debt to the friend in some weird way into that relationship but then also inevitably blowing it up as a result. I think he needs to prove his integrity. This whole thing right so he does have some kind of integrity in like he will write the column. The his friend wanted to write. He will publish that call him. Even though his wife hates it he will pay the twenty. Five thousand dollars is kind of guilt money but ultimately he will find that friend and not talk to him again and this is i think a really important part of the plot at least for those of us who kind of journalists is the jedidiah then sends back that twenty five thousand dollar check torn up into pieces along with the front page manifest The cain had written basically saying i am going to write the truth. And i care about the truth as kind of fuck you to canes. Who's clearly given up on his one belief that he ever had in his life and has become cynical press magnate who has lies and that view of the press which was clearly a view of the press back in nineteen forty one remains a very common view of the press to this day they ultimately. You can't really trust what they write. The newspapers will tell you that they only right the truth but you should never believe that believed them when they tell you that because ultimately they will away follow their own agenda. What's interesting is that. At the time hearst's rise and the rise of like contemporaries was the rise of the press which it wasn't seen as having as being successful because it was so honest but in the movie it's his early success is portrayed as a product of his sort of breaking with the corrupt old system and publishing the truth. Which i think isn't how it was seen at the time moore necessarily how it would be seen now. I think they were flashier and more fun. But i think not necessarily more accurate than Unbelievably boring almost deliberately. Like its strategy was to be boring. And i mean. The strategy became the most successful newspaper fit to print. I mean like really all of it but tell me about that right because like i grew up in in the uk which was dominated in terms of speculation by a splashy tabloids who quite unreliable and while there were some very soba cited newspapers like times as well that you were boring and true. It was clearly aware that circulation gains were and in this movie to have these those scenes with the editor of the paper. Who's very comedic. Stodgy old man. And kane like well you know go out and reports about missing women in in tabloid these stuff and then he says that in the circulation goes from twenty thousand six hundred thousand so i mean again like it's obvious what the message of the movie is that giving tabloid fed to the mass is the way to become a successful press magnate but like the opposite worked for the times right well her hearst corp it's peak is a much bigger company than the new york times and their space for lots of things but that was obviously this enormously successful innovation although printing crime reports was this like unbelievably successful. Although they think they they move forward. I think it was sort of a mid nineteenth century innovation by places like new york sun that i could be getting that run. You may be right. Crime photos from ouija reminds me of a of l. a. confidential as well and all of that kind of like cd journalism right. But they do paint. Hearst is sort of a populist none of the early discussion is about his twisting it to his political ends. That's kind of comes later. In fact he's a reformer against the bosses. And there's no there's no sense of like. Are these reformers totally the guys which is my own preoccupation hilarious scene where like when he loses the election governor and they rip up one thing cain wins and they run the one saying fraud at the polls which becomes extremely. Yeah that's the point. I mean from favor moving but it did seem like i mean at the beginning when kane comes into the sleepy paper and the guys will you know we stop working early in the afternoon or whatever he says and kane says you know news is twenty four hours like what are you doing and has a lion about like if the headline is big enough. The story is big enough that I mean really. The internet obviously did not exist in nineteen forty one but like this is the way internet sees the news like i just read some story about ben shapiro's website this morning being very popular on facebook and i was like kind of had citizen kane vibes in my head would be so flattered. Probably a three column headline in the chronicle hasn't the enquirer three content wasn't big mr. If the headline is big enough it makes the news. Biggest mrs harris beggars or even missing in the navy getting suspicious gossip of housewives not kind of thing. Cain phillip. Davey mr carter. That's.

"Randolph hearst fall. Yeah i wanna ask about the full in a minute. Because i'm a little bit confused about that. But but just sticking on on the politics from minute one other way that wells like sticks the knife into hearst is by putting cain in a photograph being old chummy with adolf hitler and then the idea is the cain like eventually you know obviously distances himself from hitler because he's an american but like is that how far right i mean would that lime with how far to the right husked went to like maybe la- lisa teeth. Hitler might have been attractive to i. I think i did interview. did hearst. Internet went went to berlin and interviewed. Hitler but as from what i've read that was after he consulted with new york jewish leaders so so it was really. It was like more as a journalist. I don't think he was. He was obviously of of the thirties right. But i don't think he was a nazi his papers did i think published columns in the thirty s by the fascist leaders. And the next thing that happens is is. Emily says is in the movie and whenever i don't really see the detail of it more how it happens but people keep on mentioning over the course of the movie like he made all of this. He had this empire and then he lost everything. He lost her all. He was left alone in his crumbling. Xanadu is the hearst story also arise full story or was it just a rise. Did he fall as well. He had a bad depression. But i think like many many americans e yeah. I think he's business fell apart during the depression. But because i mean actually those of us who work in media it's an advertising business and is very cyclical and nothing like a depressed genderless. Screw up your advertising business. So i think really straightforward way is business neared collapse during the oppression and then roared back with the post. Okay so that would have been the like proximate. Cause if fictional cain empire's demise as well right. It's just it's pretty simple. There's a depression advertisers. Don't have any money. They don't advertise and day goes. Go media empire. Yeah it's really. It's really tragic. How the advertising industry always get short shrift in his dramatization in the movie. It wasn't totally clear to me why he fell. I mean yeah. He a lot of the papers had to close during the depression but it was more like the fall came from some something inside of him like his empty life led to his misery as an old man. Like that's like the kind of very basic theme of of the film like the pursuit of stuff and riches is an empty one. And at the end you'll just wind up in a big lonely house with a lot of like greek statues of women. Without ed's it's the standard. Hollywood trout that we've talked about now for two seasons on this show however long as such oh continues. It will continue. Which is the hollywood loves. Nothing more than to make movies about. How money can't buy happiness and did not love this movie which we can discuss. Maybe this is the beginning of that trove. Maybe this is what we can sort of trace the idea back to kane. The one interesting wrinkle is that it's never entirely obvious weather. Cain with pursuing money like he's always described as being very acquisitive and one thing things but in weird way. It's the banker thatcher who's like the guy who always wants money and it's the side kick bernstein who's like well. It's easy to make money if you want money. If money's all you want a great line exactly he doesn't the idea came wasn't trying to make money it just so happens if you own a gold mine in the middle of nowhere then everything else just kind of happens automatically or maybe just had the common touch and having the common touch makes you money i. that was. yeah he wants love. That's the that's what the film is actually about. It's about a sad boy. Man whose mother abandoned him as a child gave him to a banker for some reason. I honestly don't understand like couldn't keep in touch. She couldn't move with him to the city because the boarding house. I i don't understand that at all. But basically his mom abandons him no one truly love this man he seeks love in the headlines of the tabloids or in the in the empty applause of the people he keeps talking about the people he is like a trump figure right who seeks like kind of like attention and adoration in the media and in politics. and that's just an empty pursuit an ultimately it leaves him empty. That's what they thought. The movie was about so ben as a trump watch and trump has said multiple times. This is his favorite movie. What do we learn about trump from this. I mean i don't think trump is. The most complicated person in the world is came the more interesting figuring more complex than trump there. Emily as emily said like it's pretty straightforward. It doesn't it doesn't leave you a lot of red herrings and room to imagine other things just given the structure of it just came like need to be loved to stat read through to trump as well not that big on psychoanalyzing cover. It makes sense to me. One hundred percent. Money is sponsored this week by wild alaska company which serves in a beautiful frozen package the most delicious food you can get. Which is fish.

"Goes to the movies. I'm feeling salmon of axios. I'm here with emily. Pick of fun dries. It's time to really drag out the big guns here. This is the forty millimeter howitzer Of movies and in order to talk about the movie that everyone seems to think the greatest movie ever made in the history of cinema. We have the only person we could possibly in on this show to talk about citizen kane. Welcome ben smith. Thank you so much for having me. Ben who are you. And what is your relationship to the press and press magnates on the film critic for the new york times. Ben is the most astute observer of contemporary media and used to run a website. You might have heard of cold buzzfeed. And i know nothing about movies and the medium for the time anyone reading that column and reading when i read about disney and netflix. We'll see how little i know about movies and Yes easter buzzfeed. But you actually. You have a whole childhood of house movies in your background is we will talk about in this episode your mention inflicting french house movies on your fourteen year old daughter we will talk about where cain stands is like a movie house. Maybe of course mostly. We're gonna talk about. Cain as a character this whole idea of media moguls whether it stands up what's changed in the media industry between nineteen forty one and now it's a meaty and delicious episodes coming up on sleep. Money goes to the movies support for this. Podcast comes from invent together. I bet you didn't know that inventing activity by black inventors peaked in eighteen ninety nine and it has never recovered black and hispanic college graduates patented half the rate of white college graduates. That's just one of the reasons why you need to know about invent together. When our patent system gets more diverse our nation will get stronger and more successful. Find out how you can help. Diverse inventors and unleash economic opportunity at invent together dot org so ben. Tell me where were you. When was it told me like the first time you saw citizen kane. My mom used to make me watch black and white movies. When i was a kid and actually sometimes to take me to the art houses on the upper west side there was one on thalia used to play classic movies. And there was another one in ninth and broadway and so. I can't actually remember if i saw there or if i just saw it on the vcr but either way it was. When i was a kid. I wasn't allowed to watch tv. And i think she sort of believed that like trashy culture from the thirties and forties preferable to trashy culture from the eighties. We wash lots of movies. I feel like this is one of those movies that like kids who just never going to understand you can watch. It doesn't matter how many times you watch is going to go straight over your head. I tried to get my twelve year old son to watch this with me on sunday and he sat on the couch for about twenty minutes and then he just shook his head rolled his eyes and left and went to play minecraft and i was told it was boring and i didn't disagree yet. Did make a big impression on me at the time. Although the kind of remembered the character and i remembered the opening saying there's a couple of indelible scenes right like the him like giving his speech with the big poster behind him and him like applauding the end of the opera which live on in as memes and that kind of some of the earliest and most enduring memes that hollywood has produced especially that the shot of him with the poster behind him cain that lives on and other movies and just in the imagination. Something that has cultural resonance. I think you know that image. Even if you don't know what citizen kane even is. I hadn't connected it to the actually like i hadn't connected in my by the movie and the man should we just talk about if someone hasn't seen the eighty year old movie. What it is about. It's about randolph hearst. Right this was obvious to anyone who watched a movie in nineteen forty one. And it's something. Which i guess you have to know if you watch it today. But it's not very veiled fictionalization of the life of one of the great press magnates in american history. Who's this guy randolph. Hearst who ben can give us like the pocket bio why is that he was so fascinating to to orson welles almost hard not in i think in two thousand twenty one to remember how powerful or to think about how powerful and newspaper baron was. I mean ripper. Not obviously the closest thing we have to off her but basically. It's two things at somebody who builds this enormous and powerful business on news but then also who is just willing but eager of it's totally intertwined with why the businesses successfully use it as a political cudgel and he was you know the sort of iconic newspaper publisher back when being a newspaper publisher was the most powerful thing you could be. I think a lot of the most famous stories about him are apocryphal. And some of them. I realize are from citizen kane particularly the one about the spanish american war where cain says you provide the pictures and i'll provide the war and i think that's something that is apocryphal e attributed to william randolph hearst. But watching this movie again. I realized oh this is where the attribution comes from. I think he actually literally well. According to what i read he had said you furnish the pictures all furnish the war and is credited with helping foment the spanish-american more and then cain says you provide the prose poem and i'll provide the war perfectly. Well there's not the slightest proof that this model after jersey low mr rubin. Isn't this guestimations. Denied like you to meet mr thaksin. Just leland thatcher my ex guardian. Yeah no secrets from our readers. Mr bernstein mr bachelor is one of our most devoted readers. He knows what's wrong with every company took over the cable girls delightful and kill bus. Stop could send you prose poems about scenery but don't feel right. Spending your money stopped out is no war in cuba side wheeler and he asked wheeler. You provide the prose poems. I'll provide the war that around like myself that was came directly make me rubbing assault in and making absolutely obvious who he was talking about because everyone knew that quote when the movie was made but yeah i think it's kind of person who has no compunctions whatsoever in terms of pushing his own personal agenda in his own media and also politician like the person who's springs to mind is not murder quite so much as i would say berlusconi. Yeah because he was really on both sides of the story and but of course cain never gets elected because of a sex scandal the big difference between kane and trump right is the cain act she gets derailed by a sex scandal whereas from justly raisins through it and i think hearst himself did win some elected office but ran for governor of new york and failed and i was a progressive early on and then turn to reactionary fascism type stuff. It's my understand. His politics are really interesting because then there is sort of a through line where he was sort of like in the early twentieth century was sort of a reformist trust. Buster type like a teddy roosevelt republican because the issue was the corruption of these irish-american machines dominating the cities and he was. And you still sort of see that today. Actually i think in how how white an upper class the quote unquote reform movement in new york. City is but he was of that of that genre politics hundred and twenty years ago. He definitely would have been a kathryn garcia voter and then by the thirties. He's strident anti roosevelt figure. Which is what. I think is really remember. And so the movie is about charles foster kane based.

Paddington 2 Breaks a Rotten Tomatoes Record

"I am going to be taking a look at films. That for whatever reasons audiences just either didn't connect with or simply just didn't enjoy them as much as the critics did and there is a lot that separates the opinion of critic and the average moviegoer as the average moviegoer is really just looking for an experience. That is enjoyable and entertaining and on the other hand. A critic is essentially going into a film with a checklist of things to look for and in order for a critic to consider a film good. It really has to satisfy a lot of preconceived notions so as we will see in the next segment. It is very hard for critics to see eye to eye on a film in fact it is pretty much impossible to do. So but one exception to that rule was believe it or not. The film paddington to when that film i came out in theaters in two thousand seven enjoyed the longest period of time where a film on rotten tomatoes had both one hundred from the critics and the audience. Now time that has changed it now has an audience rating score of eighty seven percent which is still incredibly high for rotten tomatoes but probably the most surprising thing about that movie is it still has a one hundred percent rating from critics and for those of you wondering if you have this film confused with something else nope. It's the film about a teddy bear with rain coat and a little red hat. That film is rated higher than the godfather and citizen kane.

"Yesterday would be auxin wells, birthday. I promised some people who wrote to me, I talk about Austin wells. There's a lot I could say. I know many of you think of his brilliant directing career. Maybe you celebrate Citizen Kane, a film he directed, but he was 24. People call it a film that's never been never been surpassed. I've never been crazy about the film. I know he did things then that Warren Dunn, but I don't know. I'm not even sure how much of the film he wrote if you see the movie make. There's a lot to be said that mankiewicz wrote a bunch of that or maybe all of that movie. I don't know. Austin was always. Felt to me as a big fat phony. You know, he married my all time beauty, Rita Hayworth, and he used to beat her and he used to make her do things she didn't want to do. And once I used to hear those stories as a kid, my father used to love to tell me about actors and directors who were cock suckers. And he said, that also is no good. He beats Rita Rita Hayworth. He beats Rita cancino. My father loved that her name was cancino. Which was an Italian, he just loved saying it at a vowel at the end. But Rita Hayworth is my all time Hollywood

"Dressed up like yourself belts where you are. They are the first animated family of television and they're coming back. Welcome back Jason and Alexis in the morning. Jason Mathis in along with Alexis Thompson, Don McLean and Kenny Bee beep on this Wednesday, April 28th 2021, so this story caught my attention on the Hollywood reporter. I think this is so brilliant and that is this. The Flintstones. They're not going to do another live action movie You're not gonna do Normally they're coming back to where they started where they should live, and that is on television. Elizabeth Banks is executive producing, along with her partner, her producing partner, a new animated Flintstone Syriza's that set about 20 years after the original ended, the original ran from 60 to 66. And, you know, obviously focused on Fred and Wilma. This one the peg is and I guess Elizabeth has been wanting to do this for years. Uh, the peg is that it's pebbles. Pebbles is now in her twenties, and they're moving from the stone age to another age in bedrock, and it's called bedrock. And the residents of bedrock are not excited about this new era new innovations and they don't want to. They don't want to move from their stone age life. And Fred is near retirement. So he's kind of an Archie Bunker. Ask thing, I guess And yeah, so it's focusing on pebbles and it's called bedrock. So yeah. And it's a Fox is ordered it and I think it's my network. Yeah, I think it's fox and, yeah, I think it's brilliant. I am to say yeah. Beyond that. Don't I was one of the I struggle. A lot of Flintstones off when kazoo showed up. That was jumping the shark from because the great kazoo Yeah. Oh, he was alien guy that they'd call him. I'm out of their hijinks and stuff. And I'm also the main my main concern. Mel Blank, No male blank. What am I gonna do without my party party party is gonna be there. Barney and Betty will be there guy there, Grandpa and Grandma. God, I think they're just gather in your retirement. But Bam! Bambi there! Well, yeah. Pebbles is there you were gonna have Bam bam! Bam B! I'm still around. Let me see any idea of the voice who will voice they care! Bam! Bam will now thanks Elizabeth will be pebbles. She will be published. Wow, Ike's Wow. Um, I am the only positive Polly on this story. I love that. I love it, but I can't even explain to you how this show I am what I am today because of Fred and Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. That's why I am Fred Flintstone. Would you say? Just watch the original. It stands the test of time. Did I get fired and quit my job and rehired every single day? In my life every single day of my life. There's another get rich, quick scheme every day of my life. I'm trying to fool my roommate and her best friend neighbor into following along with my high jinks. Well, the whole water buffalo thing I go to that once a week bowling Well, Square ball, then you obviously know Square God. Well, then you obviously know Kenny. The Flintstones is really an animated honeymooners. That's all that it is. That's that's really It was the answer. It was just a cartoon version of Gleason, That's all Hominy Hominy. Yeah. Hello, ball anyway, I was just it was that I don't know. Here's the deal. It could really suck. And it could be really off base. But I will tell you I went. They're going to bring this intellectual property back. I guess I'm more optimistic than I am. If they were going to do another crappy live action movie, I think the Flintstones should exist in animation. And I love that It's returning to television Televisa. What's up with my company? Now? I love I love that returning to television. My God, I love I just think it's fun nostalgia that it's going back to the John or that it started on. Does it have the potential to be a giant square shaped? Turn? Yes. That work could be really great. You're right. It could be really good. At least they're jumping in time and not trying to redo. The original. Yeah, that's good. It's might feel fresh in that way, and I will. I do take a little comforts. I guess Seth McFarland. Had a pitch about a decade ago to the F O X and the looked at a couple scripts and didn't like his take. According to this article. Whatever Elizabeths Peg is other than just adult pebbles. But there's something the hook of this, they said, is brilliant and they love it. There's there's they must be seeing some sort of brilliance in the whole concept that they think is relevant and maybe sharp, and maybe they have some good writers. I don't know they see potential where they didn't see potential in whatever Seth McFarland was going to do with the Flintstones. Because he really wanted to bring them back. And they didn't. They didn't buy kiss. They didn't like his take on the Flintstones. So I do too. I mean, it doesn't make me curious, because I mean, say what you will he may not. His humor may not be your cup of tea, but the guy knows how to do animation on Fox. I mean, come on, You just need family guy and and all that stuff, but I don't know. Well. Guess on me on Lee. Happy one about this. That's fine. Very weird. Very everywhere. That's fine. That's fine. That's fine. That's fine. I get it. I have one more thing. This is gonna make gone mad. Um, uh, I don't know if you heard but rotten tomatoes, those rotten people. Oh, yeah. Did you hear about this? They will. I saw it on the grid and I want what Citizen Kane, Dawn's one of dawn's favorite movies, had a perfect rating on rotten tomatoes. And now that is over over Because rotten Rotten tomatoes on earth, like a 70 year old movie Review of Citizen Kane. That was negative. So now it does not have a perfect radium. And you know what does the tickets place? What? Paddington too..

"Today a monster. If you're of a certain age, you might remember the nineteen fifty four movie creature from the Black Lagoon. Here's the plot. A geology expedition in the Amazon uncovers fossilized evidence, a skeletal hand fingers from the Devonian period that provides a direct link between land and sea animals further excavation of. Of the area where the fossil was found turns up nothing the leader. The search is ready to love, but it's thought that thousands of years ago, the part of the embankment, containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water that was washed downriver broken up by the current. The group discovers at the river empties into a lagoon. The scientists decided to. To take a little longer and unaware that amphibious Gilman has been watching had for the lagoon, and that kill man is taking notice of the beautiful assistant. Will you get the idea? And if you think the plot for the film, the creature from the Black Lagoon came out of the imagination of a writer or perhaps a famous film director. You'd be half right. Right Produce Sir William Allen was attending nine hundred forty one dinner party during the filming of Citizen Kane, in which he played the reporter Thompson. When Mexican cinematographer, Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half fish half, human creatures, Amazon River, Allen, rose. Story notes title the Sea Monster Ten years later using beauty and the beast just inspiration. In December nineteen fifty two Maurice Jim expanded this into a treatment which Harry Essex and Arthur Ross rewrote as the black lagoon. The rest is movie history. The story told to Allen by Mexican cinematographer gave Figaro was based on the legend of Jaka. Ruina buried accounts describe. The arena is being Harry with their heads turned backwards and deformed feet. Could be characterized as seductive and sexually dangerous lure humans into water by taking on human forms when people of the Amazon and community disappear, and do not return such as fishermen husbands in young girls, deception is the ACA Luna had seduced and captured their victims.

Then their head and feet turn backward wants a full transformation is complete. The human has turned. Turned into a Jaka rhuna transformation to Jaka Ruina is irreversible and a person so transformed may never return to his or her home. I researched this story. I thought it sounded like a lot of other folktales that come from tribes of indigenous people that is until I found a nineteen eighty six account of an American doctor who ventured into the Amazon with his wife and daughter to provide needed medicine and medical treatment to several primitive communities. He described in a log I how his daughter! Daughter was taken by Jaka Luna One day one day she was swimming, so it's she was pulled under and vanished. Nobody was ever recovered grief-stricken. He and his wife returned to the states. They soon separated. It was an auditory years later alone and distraught, but he returned to the Amazon River, whereas daughter had vanished that he saw her again still alive, but it transformed into a mermaid. She had married a yacht, Luna and gain knowledge in becoming healer of the waters. No one ever saw. saw the doctor again.

And I think everyone out there knows what the answer is. I'm going to run down my chart, but I can hear everyone out there saying Facebook. Okay. Top tech Turkey the year for everything that Facebook did this year all the hacking all the denials, all the constant apologies. And of course, the Facebook portal, the portal a product I actually like, but it's a video chat device was released in early November. You've heard me talk about it. It has an always on microphone. It has an always on video camera that can move around the room to bring more people into view. Yes. I've said the portal is. The best video chat. Experience we've ever had superior to FaceTime Skype or hang outs due to the higher resolution screen and camera movement, which transforms a static image into something resembling a professionally shot video, but this comes from Facebook. I mean, there's a creep product from the social network, it's an in-home monitor in your home. I don't care what they say about not recording. You they do note who you've been calling how long you been talking and they're making plans to sell you ads based on your calls. But beyond that, this is a product that once you get past video chat in the digital photo frame is worthless. It cannot give you voice commanded music videos, recipes or any of the other features that you could find on rivals like the Amazon echo were Google home hub. And if you do try to chat with someone who is not on Facebook messenger. You're out of luck. Not so with the home Hubbard echo, which will let you may calls to landlines and cell phones. Double-double? Now talking tech has a few more to add to the list. Number two, apples, ever rising prices. They just keep going up in up up this year. And I phone the top of the line topped eleven hundred dollars. The ipad pro top two thousand dollars the macbook air went up two hundred bucks. The MAC mini went up three hundred dollars, and and on and on and on and a wind and at the same time, apple eliminated, the entry level bargain. Price three hundred and fifty dollar iphone SE from its lineup. If that's not worthy of a Turkey nod. What is number three? Google clips Google made several grade products this year, including the pixel three smartphone in the home hub video speaker, Google clips would not make my top ten best lists the two hundred fifty dollar camera only shoot six to seven seconds silent. Video clips and photos automatically when Gould decides to do. So I'll be the photographer in when I shoot video. I'd like to have sound with my videos battery life, my friend Jeffrey Fowler over the Washington Post recently tested thirteen top twenty eighteen smartphone models and found. None that last is long as twenty seventeen models. Not a good trend cloud blackmail. We love the photo site smug bug, and we loved it it saved flicker from years of mismanagement, and the Glenn we don't like the new policy if you have more than one thousand photos stored on flicker, you have to delete them all by January or see them all go away. Of course, the other option is you could pay smug bump, fifty bucks. That's a really nice way to get people to come back to flicker and start sharing. Yeah. And isn't it? I hate that AT and T killed film struck film. Struck was a wonderful classic movie service that now that AT and T owns Time Warner. They said doesn't make enough money for us. So we'll just say goodbye to those one hundred thousand subscribers why this matters is it's really hard to find classic movies on the streaming services. They prefer the new stuff to St. film students of tomorrow. We'll have a hard time finding citizen Kane and city lights. Let's hope some independent gets great. Classic movie streaming service out there tvos. Hi fi DVR. This is the company that invented the DVR but likes to sell you a device and then charge fifteen dollars monthly to use. It not my idea of something that I want to be doing despite how great tvos always been the new bolt OTA is aimed at cord cutters who just wanna plug it in get shows off the Antenne and watch them later, but Tibo wants to charge.

We love the photo site smug bug, and we loved it it saved flicker from years of mismanagement, and the Glenn we don't like the new policy if you have more than one thousand photos stored on flicker, you have to delete them all by January or see them all go away. Of course, the other option is you could pay smug bump, fifty bucks. That's a really nice way to get people to come back to flicker and start sharing. Yeah. And isn't it? I hate that AT and T killed film struck film. Struck was a wonderful classic movie service that now that AT and T owns Time Warner. They said doesn't make enough money for us. So we'll just say goodbye to those one hundred thousand subscribers why this matters is it's really hard to find classic movies on the streaming services.

I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter and Matt this week as you know, I'm in Lisbon Portugal this week and starting November. I actually the dish network no longer is carrying HBO. And this is the. First time that this has happened with HBO at anyone that carries HBO that they're at these fights are quite commonplace. Among the broadcast networks or cable networks, they want more money from places that carrot that distribute their content for the privilege of of carrying their content. But this is the first time that HBO has been in a fight that got to this level and significantly the first time that this kind of fight has come to this point since AT and T acquired the Time Warner assets, which includes HBO, and this is a sort of thing that you know, when you look at a big acquisition AT and T buying Time Warner with Warner Brothers and HBO this that and the other an HBO was the crown jewel there. Of course, was a fear that you know, they would strangle the competition or crush the people who have to do business with them. And I guess an argument could be made here. They're doing it. Yeah. I mean dish network competes with direct TV in the satellite business. Direct TV is owned by eighteen. Tea, and now AT and T has this asset HBO that lo and behold, it has been yanked off of dish, which conceivably could make people switch from dish to direct TV. Now, I think it's a little bit more complicated than that in. What you saw from Richard player the of HBO he put out a statement today. Saying no dish took this off dish HBO was ready to do a deal and dish essentially balked and caused them to go dark and the economics. Here are interesting because dish is a lower cost provider. Their whole marketing campaign is we cost less than the big boys like direct TV. So it is possible that they tried to extract some kind of a price concession and HBO emboldened by this new AT and T relationships said, no, you gotta you gotta pay up, but even the specter of AT and T. Acting improperly may impact this appeal which is going on right now. The Justice department is asking a pellet panel to revisit this merger. And the fact that this carriage dispute is going on is probably not good for eighteen in that merger appeal. I mean, it's not technically legal issue. That was addressed when the Justice department tried to block AT and T from buying Time Warner this was not the basis of the argument, they made maybe it should have been. But but notwithstanding the fact that that is not what is at issue that the superior court panel is reviewing it would still get into the heads of someone who reads a business page of a newspaper. A look what's happening AT and T is being a big bad owner of this property. There is a general skepticism. I think towards these companies, and we all kind of assume they're doing the worst thing they could possibly do for the market in their customers that they could get away with. But you know, there are two sides to this and dish has. Long history of getting into carriage fights with various channel companies networks, they are cheap and they're famously cheap. Charlie Ergen who runs dish has been a very controversial si yo, and he's not afraid to pull content. He pulled the Univision channel from dish. When they couldn't reach a deal, and that still is not on the dish network. So there's a lot of players here. That's Mandela knee aditorial director of the Hollywood reporter.

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

Netflix cracks a window

"KCRW sponsors include net. Flicks presenting the love me when I'm dead chronicling the last years of Orson Welles life the genius behind citizen. Kane. It's wildly entertaining while full of nuance and depth directed by Morgan Neville, only on net. Flicks. November second I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt Finally I mean, we sort of expected this for a while but net flicks finally finally is cracking after trying to get into the awards race in a real way for a while. Now, they really want this, and they have in a very I think serious contender in quirones Roma, which is a black and white film very much in art house film. I would save as having seen it very much a film, ironically that you would wanna see on a big screen. You cannot make a movie with Cuaron if you don't bend or an artist like Koran if you don't somewhat bend to his will. So netflix. Has said they will let this movie run exclusively in theaters some theaters for awhile, it's a concession and their couple of other films in this category. But let's focus on the big one for now couple of other films in this category. They're going to allow this with it's a concession. I'm not sure that it's a really fabulous concession. Well. It is a big deal that Netflix, which has steadfastly stuck to this party line that we are releasing movies on Netflix worldwide the same day that we're putting them in a few theaters. That's the key here. They're moving three movies from the exclusive day and date on Netflix to invaders for about two or three weeks in advance and a few theaters. And the message here is that Netflix wants to play ball with elite talent and get into that Oscar race, which they have been unable to do. And is this going to make a difference? I don't know. But it is a big concession from. Netflix to go away from what they? I have said is their model all on net flicks to giving this the window which will allow those audiences to see it in theaters. I'll tell you what I think I think that net. Flicks made such a fetish of this. And I understand they were launching something, but movies are movies, in some cases. It really does matter as I said Romans one of them, I think that they made such a stink about this that certain theaters don't want anything to do with running their movies. They still don't want that relationship. And I also think this is a small number of theaters fifty around the world, I think is the number, and I'm just guessing you've got an otter like Koran and he's not the only one that is going to seem like not enough. Now, you could say, you know, this will be was made without Netflix money and net flicks, then acquired it in in a way made it possible for the world to see it. And you could say many people do it's better to be seen on screens. You know, more people will see it this way. However, I suspect that not only will the theater is still largely shunned it, but an artist like. Warren will say, you know, this really is not enough. And next time. I'm not doing it. Well, not if he wins best picture, which is gonna pour millions of dollars into campaign to win him best picture, and they believe that by putting it in theaters in New York and Los Angeles and couple of other big cities. They will have a better shot at winning best picture for this guy. And you know, it's it's the push pull it's a huge global audience that Netflix can provide. But they don't give you that theatrical push that many filmmakers want, and to me, the most interesting thing here is Netflix is drawing a line. They're saying these three movies are worthy of the releases. But if I'm a filmmaker that has a movie at Netflix, I say to my agent, where's my theatrical release where why am I not getting what L fonds Roan or the Coen brothers or the Sandra Bullock movie? They're putting in theaters why why am I not getting that? So you're going to see I think people like Guillermo del Toro who has a movie project. Net flicks. Michael bay whose movies are gigantic transam erred. But but Michael bay is used to getting his transformers movies in four thousand riders on opening weekend in the US, and he's gonna make net looks movies. You know, you don't think Michael Bay's going to ask for the window, and yeah, I do actually. And I think that if it does win. Yes. Maybe he will be satisfied, but it may not win because net flicks.
