"About a kind of bedridden guy. He's looking back on his own life instead of seeing come through the prisons of others and you have cain once removed in the film in the form of charles. Dance as william randolph hearst. Who is so vague. He thinks the song is about him right. You know he's like what you know. He's he likes mankiewicz. The way her supposedly dead and hasn't in his circle right up until the point where he feels like he's going to be challenged at which point he kinda cast out fincher super interested in people who are cast out and get revenge at he super interested in how revenge is isolating and lonely. I watched the social network a couple of times for reasons. And that's kind of what it's getting at right. Is you achieve what you want. And you're kind of left alone and maybe that's kind of all you wanted to be ever. He's interested in loneliness. Think makes an interesting movie belonging more than it's an interesting movie about. I don't know worsened wells. Are you not love. The orson welles seen in make. I don't love it. i liked that. Tom burke david fincher in it. I can ask any question about. May you have on the podcast phone. It'd be late you know that. That's funny right. Another film writer. I like a lot mentioned that in his piece for rolling stone like good. I'm not insane. Someone else saw the little goatee and haircut. Which the movie is because wells is thinking of making heart of darkness still. He's got this kind of light. You know goatee. But you looks along with david fincher. That's kind of significant to me in terms of where fincher puts himself in the movie. One of the things that i think a man deny are gonna talk about and i think we response that we both had to the movie. Was it did. Perhaps it's the dad -ness of at all but it struck me as a really the most sentimental movie that fincher has made as well A man. I don't want you to spoil too many of your takes for later this week but you know what what what drove that for you. Well i think adam sent me a perfectly. This is a movie about david. Fincher working stuff out and as much as it is is a movie about who wrote citizen kane which is barely in the movie at all and i. It's not that i didn't like the well. seen it. just kind of felt like a sideshow. Essential to what was going on in this film. And that's okay. Because i think there are other interesting things going on in the movie. You know david fincher was asked by the new york times a bit about this films. You know relationship to his father and his own relationship to his father and fincher. Brush it off which i would expect. Nothing less from david fincher. I you know it's right there for the taking and not but not just the data at all but what does it mean to be a director. What does it mean to work in this system. Which is as adam noted something that he has been struggling with or interrogating. We're trying to get revenge for.

"I don't know about a last gasp of a certain kind of mystic cynicism but it does feel. It's feels like it can only happen in this time period and his small frame of history agree with that adam. Yeah with you believe pauline kale which you shouldn't it kind of culminates. The newspaper comedy era right that a lot of those films. The sheep is even kind of dubious about saying it's better than them. She's like it's of a piece with them. You know these other fast talking user driven reporters and know personal agendas versus reporting the news. I mean she sees another other things as a combination of that. But i think the war is kind of a good A good pivot point here. Because it's also a pivot point between genres and american film a lot of the genres that come in the nineteen forties including the war film which existed before but necessitated by the interest which people have about war. You know you're starting to get not musicals disappearing. But when they start to reach of decadence obsolescence by the middle of the fifties in the fifties and sixties teen films horror films. It's all of these kind of migrations and cycles into amanda point that citizen kane's like five or six or seven different kinds movie in one. That's why i think it may be endured through those shifts. You can't put it away in. The early forties is what i'm trying to say. All the legacy of it is like how he made something like that when he did and who. He made it with an who it was about that. There's a maternity to the forward thinking this to it and up versatility to it in terms of genres that it occupies that that kind of helps that helps it. Get the kick forward and carry it through the forties and fifties with not just wrap Reputation intact but elevating and by the way not winning. Best pictures for the best thing that ever happened to it because it allows it to be anti-establishment in another way which is to suggest that the oscars as a barometer of quality. And i don't know if i'm allowed to say this on the big picture if someone's gonna shoot me through my window now at the oscars just don't matter. How green is my absolutely great and you could actually have an amazing contoured conversation about quality in those movies citizen kane. Not winning best picture feels right to some strain of sinophilia which is the strain of centerfield at argues that the winners are not really the winners and that a history written by the winners meaning a history written by the oscars is a pretty incomplete. History how can you tell the history of cinema without debt thieves. That didn't win best. You know i mean it's just it's it's good for citizen kane. I would argue that. That is ultimately part of the point of the oscars that controversy in and of itself is sort of what drives the history and keeps these kinds of conversations. Alive for your point is well taken chris new. You suggested in the allen here..

"Ryan adam name and welcome to the show. I'm very glad that you guys are here to celebrate bank week. This is a very big week here on the big picture and there's so much to discuss. This is a conversation that i think can spend far and wide but before we begin and dive deeply into citizen kane. It's making history its importance. I just want to know. And i'll start with you chris. What what does citizen kane mean to you. What do you make of the citizen kane of the world. What do i make it the citizen kane of the world a man so this is an interesting question. I guess if you're asking what. I love about the movie. It's how full of ideas it is. I was watching A couple of youtube videos of just different directors talking about citizen came in the one that i liked the most was sydney pollack and he said in every single scene in every single shot citizen kane has an idea and i think that's what i took from the movie the first time i watched. And that's what. I take from the movie when i watched it this week. I think when i watched a teenager and you could just tell immediately that someone was telling you not only to watch the film to follow a story but to think about how that story was being told and why and i don't think i'd even you know even at sixteen or seventeen whenever my dad had me watch it on the guy thought about movies in that exact way and so in that way citizen kane is sort of this incredible textbook for what you can do with the movie adamant about you. In addition to being a critic you're a scholar history of wells quite well. What does this mean to you right now. I'm gonna give you a really serious scholarly answer which is that. It's the first time i can remember that. A movie was parodied. Before i saw it for the first time i remember what padded which was talking to. There's an episode of tiny toons where the villainous montana max is kind of running for some kind of political office Tiny toons world is by the way they show animated rabbits here on this cain bike and there's something about him speaking in front of a big picture of himself which is one of the iconic images in citizen kane.

"Or drop dead either way. Whoever's i think we're likely a who's ever in charge of tubi dude what we got to be money coming all eighty bucks sam race. I will tube in for to call me fuck and yeah we. We get the victory la i love to. It's not just a victory lap. You know. I was thinking about victory labs recently because we watched All the scream movies and there's victory laps and every single one of them but this is great too because before you get the victory lap its title card that's just like hey everybody You know the mercury theatre players you know are proud of the cast. You know so. Many of them are in motion pictures for the first time. We would like to introduce you to them such a this. Because it's like a theater rate thing. Yes it really is. It's also very humble. Because he doesn't give himself on. I mean it's humble calling orson welles humble as an oxymoron but at the same time it comes off as humble at the very least unity because yeah he doesn't give himself a title card and shares one with the cinematographer which good on him because Toland really kind of made this movie of all the people. He's very open like. Yeah i just told what to do. I come up with the things toll and came up with all the ideas out how to do it. I just told him what to do. Right yep and so there we have again. That is the film citizen kane legitimately carriers if anyone is listening to this entire episode without seeing the movie i would recommend it is good one hopes up. Yeah it doesn't hold up the question we ask and yes i think yeah it does play obviously like very differently in two thousand twenty. You know what. I mean it. Just it really does. And it's it's impressive and also sad how how capitalism is capitalism. I guess is the the sad part about it is no one should have that much wealth and we haven't learned that lesson just yet thought. I had while watching this. And like i would never want it to happen but it did. It is really weird that donald trump never directed a movie claims very weird that he never did that because it seems like exactly what he would want to do see. I don't think so. Because he the only reason i'm pushing back on this is because i know just how verse he is to the arts no forms. Like any steve started as a broadway. He wanted to be a broadway producer. That was his whole trajectory at first but the first show he did bomb so bad that like he was like fuck it not doing it. I'm going to go into my dad's a business. That was how he did so like. I feel like once you got power back. Why wouldn't you just parlay that in your in your in the media all the time. Anyway you know what he would be. He wouldn't be like a director necessarily he would just be harvey one. Yeah that should have produced like a cannon movies for himself. You know what i mean and those movies probably would have ruled. I've but they'd be like say hyper racist. Yes yes but the fact that he liked blood sport parts of it like i could see maybe him leaning into that cannon type of mind foot to be clear though it is a is a purely financial endeavor. There's there's not an artistic bone in that unlike unlike all the other canon movies. This won't.

Yeah give me a grand which he should get and the guys that not for that story look fuck you you're not rosebud beads. That's perfectly plausible. Explanation shut up. you know. it's a bit on the butler here though dude because you gotta get that cold hard cash before you. I'm sure this butler had some line. Like he said a bunch of crazy shit. There is a great moment in the flip out. Though that i wanted to highlight where he goes after this bookshelf and he's can tear it all these books off the bookshelf and he gets to the back of a book or something. And there's a fucking hidden bottle of booze back there. And he looks at it and he's like i like to think that he so disgusted because it's like cheap like grandpappy. Nothing liquors something. And he's so disgusted. He throws this bottle of whiskey across the room. Awesome awesome moment did but yes so that that is not the rosebud. You're looking for unfortunately Around here you got all the shots of you. Know the all the storage of xanadu and wrapping things up it looks like the fucking ark of the covenant yup absolutely the ark was fucking in there. What they're talking about this and again what you're looking at is all this wealth that that never even mattered to this guy and all of this money that could have gone somewhere else and all of you. Yeah do exactly like this dude. Fuck checked out and like it's all for well then you base us. Look at it you anytime now dude. It's incredible that like they do this. Overhead shot over all of the stuffy owns and it does look like a world in itself like even like a cityscape. Like the from a bird's eye view and then like in the middle of it is sporozoites. Bud yeah you know. They have the They're going through some of the collection and it's a man. It's so i never noticed any of this before but you know things it. This is where. I noticed the fucking areas. Welcome back trophy. That was kept. He has the stove that was in his mother's house like he is purchased or procured that and that's in its collection and then he's kept all of the jigsaw puzzles that Susan alexander did you know but man. I never noticed any of those things. But it really got me bestow stove. Yeah like what a sad fucker. It's not just. I mean the sled was like his last thought or whatever but like clearly. This shit has haunted him all his years. Not just like those last moment. Ever sell your kid to the bank is the rule is is the story here. I mean we've all been tempted. I'm sure and i know you know we're getting into it again. And they just announced it here in the city today. Schools are closed and back down parents. I know you're frustrated with the remote learning. You're frustrated trying to work from home while dealing with the kids. Do not sell your kids. Do a bank. i know you want to. I know you're halfway filled out the paperwork. Yeah you're gonna do it like throat in one of those coins star machines. Td bank kids starving dry. My kids dumber gene. The franken lobbyists that grows kid keeps on coming up at defective. And what the fuck can't got a flat in that kid. At before he put it in that slot scrape off this gunk off. Then he'll go through and you get this you know thomson's is going through you know on the like what did you find out about him. Jerry you know. What have you been doing this whole time. Wasting the fucking newsreel people's money or whatever and he says you know he's putting together a jigsaw puzzle and he says rosebud was a piece of a jigsaw puzzle. A missing piece right in his life. That's great you know and we see burn up and everything and it's interesting because the burning of the sled i always miss remember is like the last shot of the movie but then we in fact leave xanadu just the way. We came in at the beginning and just reverses every no detail about what happened to the monkeys. Unfortunately either just really. He's telling them to p.t. Barnum for fucking song. Oh absolute- well actually dude. I bet you can get good price if you were like. Hey you can advertise this publicly for like another like five years or so. Wait for the heat to die down charles foster kane own that giraffe. You could have a higher admission price probably hell. I'll even take the burned animals. I'll i'll put him somewhere. Don't you worry about it i do. I do really like that book ending of showing like we start with a no trespassing. Sign an end with one an expense if we're if this is a hearst critique yet you're just you're not allowed me that's the thing is you know it's awesome. Congratulations though trespassing. You'd never let anyone anywhere near you jet. Jesus i'm jeff. I think we're at the the ass end of a really shitty for years. But i think jeff bezos might be the worst demand. I want to throw this out there to him. We will stop saying this if we get some type of amazon prime video. Show like post gun to his head here. I mean i don't wanna post our numbers on the door. Like fucking charles foster but they are in god anyway call or drop dead either way.

"So then we go back to the acc. Here at the el rancho lounge is where susan alexander has been propping yourself up for these remains like a cat house or a bar in the nevada desert called this because there should be deal ranch. lecture should be. i mean. I'm sure there's probably a lot of el rancho lounges. Around the that. I would like to see that i would rather be able to go down to as see some washed up our opera stars trying to say that. Then it's it's seeing like a joe piscopo down there i believe. Is it still in business. That's the question. Google it because i can tell you watch it. We don't know anyone that's ever performed there. Well no certain it's probably just a vanity project for him. Yeah we don't. We don't associate with those comedians dude. I feel like every. Snl member should have had a failed nightclub. There should be a key hands. Farrell's there should be like all the big name should have had one. I feel will love. It's of its at one. Dangerfield has never honest and now so that doesn't count. No that was a terrible club though. What about a hustles for melania. Hutzel for sure yeah. I like that song comedy club. I see that he got divorced in two thousand six down twenty years ago ghost marriage. Hold up joe. Piscopo dot org loading up right. Now get the hell out of here. Come out curtains for you man. i love it. That's pretty man. You're playing private parties in the hamptons back in september. What are you doing of. He doesn't believe it he doesn't believe in. It probably does it but even if he did though a joe piscopo stand up special out in the hamptons. Talk about definitely not a superspreader. I kind of want it to be like a big troll for him. Call and call it the superspreader tour. My friend. ed. Joe piscopo is on cameo as an f. y. Oh trailer games gentlemen. I got a fucking with now. Stephen steve obviously you know where to almost a half hours into this episode. So there's no via just really game this week. What is the situation though dude for this. We love movies ma. I can tell you that there will be three now. Epsom absent patriotic. If we love it fucking god. Damnit got to test my mettle. So she's wasted and this is where she's like you know. I never wanted the opera house. You know he fucking made me do these. The singing lessons and whatnot Compare com Companion to this movie is available mine which steals the structure. Almost exactly toni. Collette pieces are exactly this kind of thing you know. I've never seen my wife movie. And that's she brought it up. She her to her credit. But it's it is really interesting to watch that movie as a citizen kane companion right. Yeah definitely influenced. I haven't seen that in a long time. So this is what susan tells her side of the story with the opera stuff and this is where you get this. Totally great shot of her as the curtains are coming up The cameras just sort of left in the like really like you know in the back of the stage. I was at the wall of the theater. You see this great curtain. Come up and the lights so fucking awesome. But then you get more of this horrendous fucking sing a lesser movie would make her joke. You know what i mean like. It's very it makes his character of the punch line of this. This dimwitted. whatever can't say it's like you see how excruciating it is for this person. You know what i mean. Yep yeah exactly So she totally fucking socks and in this time around. This is where you get like. The great should've like bernstein falls asleep during the production. And leland doing the great tearing up his program which homer simpson does later on yes in the simpsons which is so awesome Again just like seeing. I mean like the and not just like this the homer one leg. I just mentioned like so. They're not all mr burns centric. But my god the citizen kane references on the simpson mr burns obviously having the same upbringing of being taken from his real parents role. The if sorry but also. I watched magnificent amerson as well and ask. I believe. it's just when he was a young boy. George in that movie is a fucking terror. And he's like whipping townspeople from his carriage. Stop saying yeah you know. My dad is and he's dressed with the Kind of like a fancy boy. He's got like kind of kilt ish thing and he's got the long curly hair of monty burns versus. I guess groundskeeper willie's father. I don't remember. oh no. It's the irish the irish guy running the bumper cars and he's fucking great gag of him laughing for like four days. Was i laughing about. Oh that crippled mystic fister. Birds is the bay like atoms one degree. Yes i love it. I mean i it just it's everywhere the fucking influence. Which is i mean. also. I'm sure they haven't made a citizens can citizen kane reference on that show and twenty years of positive. It's fucking me. Whatever but john credit now the that shot of welles like clapping like that is one of the biggest memes. Give us well. That was the acting in that scene. When you watch it like for real like the whole scene you you see everything he's thinking which is like this is terrible. This is terrible. Nobody's let y y arguable loving it. You know what it's it's the. He's fighting himself so hard and like and he doesn't say a word it's amazing will because the other incredible move there too. Is that when the performance blissfully finishes. He's the only one not clapping at first and it's kind of like well of course they'll clap and then i love that's why he's motivated to start clapping. Only after everyone else stops and the party go a standing ovation which nobody else is gonna do. That's for sure dude. And they're just like like you know his like nothing clapping in this huge cavernous opera house while vega just like almost in virtual silence bringing all of those flowers up to the front row for her putting on the stage man it is humiliating and so she's fucking furious about this review. Obviously the next morning like she's sitting in a pile of newspapers the reading all the reviews and everything and she's fucking furious. That leland wrote this thing and you know there's this great moment where it came says admits to send him a check for twenty five thousand dollars after i fired him. And it's like oh telegram voyeur. Mr cain and it's an envelope from leland and he's returned the trek.

Oh yes not a communist. He's a nazi. That's right g stands for gory to europe and the given this become back. It's kind of. It's very funny scene. Where like he's like not paying attention. They made this whole fucking party. This trophy is again. i'm Who's the society editor here. Took this kind of takes. The thing leaves basically. He's gotten engaged to the president's d student. what a prize piece. That's kind of outrageous. I mean i'm trying to do the math here. Who is the president i. It's one of three. Because they dumping all i don't know i don't know they don't give you a specific year. Do they know. But i mean it's either chaffetz roosevelt or fucking up. Woodrow uncle john. John that well meaning fat head so fat had makes me think tadic. But that's not a john. No it's fake for sure. But i'm trying to figure out who is who is standing in for any american president wouldn't be up to charles foster kane standard. Yeah yeah that's true There is a great line where they're like. I think it's leland or somebody says at president's niece before she gets through with him she'll be a president's wife. Oh yeah which is pretty. Great of course awkwardly foreshadowing his total political washout which has been great but yes so he does wind up marrying this woman. And there's like a little bit of marital bliss. But it and i love how little sweetness this movie because it's just everything is ugly and gray and terrible because this guy's a monster like it's like five minutes to what and a half minutes of like i love you baby and it's like i'm a fucking piece of shit. It's just yeah. Problem is like you. Look how trump operated. I mean and again. This is a totally different era. Maybe back in the thirties or forties you needed prior elected official experience. So he's running for governor in this movie and that's the steppingstone to president if he ran straight for president. I don't know he might have took it. Yeah yeah point. Famed newspaper tycoon runs for president. I the fact that lives right i. I'm famous paper tight tycoon. I'm running for president. Wait now. I'm a fucking loser again. Mike boat boo boo blooomberg. That's right he is fucking. The shitty mayor took the right steps. I was the mayor this fucking city for way too long. Just just like charles foster kane and also sunk hundreds of millions of dollars in the florida for no reason syrup. In sodas no more. Sarah put done with therapy. I'm sick and tired of this. Boo boo blooomberg trying to institute a soda policy in this city. And i charles foster kane. We'll tell you you can drink as much sodas. You'd like in a in a chalice as large as you'd like i also it'd be there's a lot of parallels to bloomberg as well so it's like he's a tiny citizen kane a citizen candy cane if you come on everybody great citizen.

Oh no the oh my god hey moon fucking cheeks notice the usa deep focus on his mooning ass harry very well wells ian very perfect we should say the entire film in deep focus Film deep focus looks fucking great wall like even like the shots with him him and his family before he's taken away by thatcher are amazing because you get to see him playing outside the window complete. Focus your the feeling is really three. But not three. D like you. Actually see. He brings your. I like a lot of the things does is bringing your is back to the to the back of the room and then back forward so that you're fully aware of the whole space. So much of this movie has that in the newsrooms and parties. You can watch other people there and it makes it feel way more real in a way. Yeah it's really incredible. So he goes to see. This is thompson by the way thomson in the present day of the film goes to see bernstein and bernstein. It's kind of hilarious because bernstein. Even though he's been with kane like one of the longest of all the cane allies. He's got like almost nothing to tell them by. Man bernstein is the guy. I want to be in this movie. He's just clock gets in at nine leaves five. You know whatever. The evil should isn't really his problem. He made a ton of money he's cool. You're ice statue at the celebration has a little bigger than you might have wanted fine. I'll deal with it. Yeah i guess. So i mean the thing about. It is though i've always seen bernstein is a little bit of like a r-enfield scituate. God whatever you need. Mr cain what do we need. You know like yeah. He totally profited off of that. But like that dude never spoke up. Yeah i'll fucking take your money dude and kinda hang back and move your furniture furniture around all this like shit. That he's doing did r-enfield outlive dracula. I think does r-enfield die and dracula. i don't think he does. Isn't he just forever crazy. Yeah i think he yeah he goes to an insane asylum locked up. He's cool down your rain dogs and sort of a strong out. Basically revealing here is none of us. Read dracula were just going. Off of bram. Stroker's dracula couples fill rate film. Grateful i think Bernstein by the way. Once cain dies he jerks off for a week. It's like a bad because he hasn't been able to jerk off and fuck seventy years up. Charles foster kane's ask giving him every little fucking thing or technically. What are the us back then to make your dick hard hot sauce. You just put in the re re your dipped eight voice. You punched it for a while nettie coward. It's just starting at old car in fucking turn that crank. It gets turtle soup to go problem with the mission. Oh just a problem with medic. Young mike crank black and blue wanted to put it in a bowl or anything just putting a coffee cup. I'll drink it on the way. That is like i wish. That bernstein was a little more like celebratory when thompson goes to see him because i would be like ding. Dong the witch is dead dude. Let's start fucking dance and right now the jerk off you think just makes me think of like the bird steamed poorly birdseed at two. Am in the boarding. Just looking around put his hand down his pants. Then the fucking phone rings at strong. That's what i'm talking about. Don't you touch it even steven bernstein reports of trying to touch it. Sensors were going touching it. I heard you put your all your other fingers up your asshole to that is definitely no no mr definitely a no no. What did you learn a jerk off. Like a man. If even cain died the shadow inspector of him haunted this dude for so long he might not not might not be able to not. Yeah that's scared jerk off. That's a sign that you have a bad boss. So if there's a you know if i knew charles foster kane. I'd be like okay. If there's any ghosts this guy's probably going to be one of them. You know yet dude. Because because why would he want to move on to hell or heaven or whatever. I'm going to stick around and haunt this newspaper office and make sure they get the paper out on time for the rest of tasks headlines. Not sensational enough moore or make it. More sensational found a solution for ourselves bernstein. I've got new a prostitute. And i'm going to sit right here and watch you fuck her. That's right bernstein. You're going to cut me with this prostitute. let's go. The new york post is stealing my act. So bernstein is like i got nothing for you dude. Why don't you go see jedidiah. Literally jedidiah.

A rise and fall story not so loosely based on the life of newspaper. Magnate william randolph hearst. It was hailed as a masterpiece. Thanks to its storytelling ambitions and stylistic innovations even as hearst attempt to suppress it it also cemented wells reputation as a genius thanks to his role as director producer and star. He didn't share one significant credit. However kane screenplay was credited to both wells and herman j mankiewicz a veteran screenwriter who like wells had left new york to seek his fortune in the movie business ventures new film depicts megawatts his work on mccain screenplay while like citizen kane the phone flashes back to significant moments in his life and career and draws connections between the two and so for the next two weeks..

I have for that cute shoe going into dip god to get me away from this l. That is my life. Take me now take me now. I will drink the dip. I will drink. Get judge a drink. Dip on the rocks. Please judge another thing. I was noticing and as you can tell audience. It's really kind of weird trying to find a place to start with this movie like for movie. Also that is famous for destroying any kind of through line narrative An hop hopping around structurally right. It's kind of tough to go through it. One of the things. I was reminded of the and was actually interesting watching chelsea. Watch the movie all of these. Like simpson's reliance sudden. Her made totally clear. What did the what am i The union forever is on What do you call is a white stripe on white blood cells. Oh dak wait at that song to did they really. It is a fucking fantastic song and the song in. The movie slaps as well. It does dude you've got. Here's the thing we'll get we'll get. Maybe don't know how we're going to go through this episode. You've got to pretend to be a little embarrassed when your own theme song is playing that Absolutely the move one hundred percent. I can't believe oh are they doing. Oh god i hate. I hate this. You cannot get up and joy reverie dude. You gotta pretend you don't know the words to that's on first of all this motherfucker singing intent. You can't know the words dear on theme song charles foster kane. That's embarrassing i. I will say something that did slap me that i had forgotten from watching it all these times is that charles foster kane dies a floridian yes. He's he's a florida man. He's a florida king. I don't understand the idea and apologies to everyone. Who's listening florida This idea where you accumulate all this wealth at the expense of everybody your life and all this shit just to live in florida. I guess you know well. One is really not going out much. It's not like i'm building this. So it can be very close to disneyworld want to see earls gator wrestling pit shelly driveway. But actually i think it does work against it because the reason that you would want to live in florida is that you can go outside with the least amount of clothing and look not insane. Sure the heat. Like that's what i think. A lot of people. Like i could go out with like my fucking tighty. Whiteys and like sunglasses look though somewhat normal because the he is so unbearable i s. I've cooked throat of everyone. i've ever known. Now that i could live amongst palmetto bugs testing as upon my skid marks. I feel like it's a thing where maybe that was the only place where he could buy up like that much land to build xanadu or something i probably so i mean and and it should his network of newspapers throughout the entire country so he kind of doesn't have a real permanent residents but like hearst which was based on has that giant cash. The castle in california. I to one of our last trips out there i went. I drove up the pacific one in stopped off there. And it fucking sucks me. That's your whole life. dude. I will do. Thanks for saving me. the trip. use the public restroom. They'll good on you. Charles pretty great dude. I've never heard a first person review of a castle before but there was a fa mingo there. It was kind of cool. I don't know and you no. I just called william randolph hearst. Charles because it's all the same. Yeah i would you know. Depending on how patriarch goes. If i could build a castle for myself i'd call it castle wolfenstein. It'd be pretty cool. Oh man you can't do that. Steve because then like everybody who passed by. Be like yeah. Castle wolfenstein old. Sadek up there. That fucking racist or a nazi no. I'm like the guy that was a prisoner. Bj has a knife and wandering around my house. And i love. I also love when he's hanging out with hitler in the newsreel. Feel like Her or cain just merely listen missing. Everybody liked hitler back then. Don't don't don't judge a book by its cover. I came out after once. Hitler was bad. I was like hey man but you know back when back when hitler well. That's like what the justification is to in the think it's in the this is in the newsreel parts. Still ebbets like percy had. Yeah totally yes. He had many powerful friends some the opinion of which she changed later to tires. How you doing. I mean yes. The confirmed events. I love this. Shot of fucking hitler on the balcony with charles foster kane and for a long time. I was like they did. They edited him in somehow. But but it's it's an actor playing hitler and the restraint they use makes it feel more real. Yeah it can be a real scene. Where all dance with moore or sida. This guy i mean. He cleaned up playing hitler bed. His name was karl ekberg and he was in fritz. Lang's manhunt from the same year. Nine hundred forty one excellent film. Yup as heard one do. Is there anyone credited as ten teddy roosevelt because there's a similar thing there right. He's the back of the train. Generally just check for hitler and i met hitler. Her stop came a rough rider again. I believe i met hitler as well. And then there was the whole divide in the country over war to that. They're sort of alluding to there. I'm sure they had a good laugh. Those to come back. He comes in the newsreel. He's just like oh we're not gonna go to war. Listen everybody everyone relax..

"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. They abducted victims gradually come to resemble their captor the Yakov Bruno over a period of time I. There is turned to resemble the Conrad. 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. The doctors camp was discovered by a group searching for explorer Percy Fawcett. Who vanished in the Amazon in nineteen, twenty five monster

"Talking tech is brought to you by wicks dot com with wicks you can use artificial design intelligence to create a stunning website right from your phone in five minutes or less. Just go to wicks dot com. That's W I X dot com and create your professional website today. Okay. So the thanksgiving is finally behind us black Friday seems she's like yesterday and leftovers rule for lunch and dinner plans, which can only mean one thing it's that time again for annual list of the top tech turkeys of the year. 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.

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.

Now at KCRW dot com slash join. 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. Thank you, Matt. Thank you. That's not felony aditorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at two o'clock on the business.

"citizen kane" Discussed on Unspooled

"Doc, Corey? Yeah, I feel like cinematographers will pick sometimes a deep focus because they want all the attention just on the one thing in the style while the audience. What to look at. Right. And you know, that particular shot is very important because that's actually shot in a couple of different ways because some things are impossible to get that way completely. In focus, you can set your camera and blackout and photographed the foreground object, and then remove that and take the mask away and photographs of the background and have both objects in that exposure is a matter process. Would you agree that this movie was revolutionary and changed the way the films were shot from here on in or is it just one? The GOP popular that is sometimes it's like, oh, well, someone else did it like films before, but this is a Kane is the one that everyone looks at. I think what you have with Kane is you have the perfect storm. You know, as you mentioned, you have a director who knows enough to hire a great. Dog refer and also knows what he doesn't know. You know, and his fearless, he was the guy was fearless. You know? I mean, he went against one of the greatest newspaper barons of all time and kind of lost. Often the beginning, but one in the is murdered. He he didn't get any money in the end. It was his career is writing, but basically, but he he knew enough to hire Greg and I truly believe the Gregg. Toland was genius enough to know that this was his chance, whereas the chance you're not. And I've, I've had a couple of those instances in my life where you go, this is chance to do everything that I've wanted to do and I can get away with it. There's nobody that's going to tell me not to do it well, so who is Gregg? Toland, two cinematographers? Well, he's still incredibly important guys guys still. I mean, he died. He was forty eight years old. He died in a sleep. Okay, heart attack. And you look at pictures of me. He's always got a cigarette between his fingers, you know, and it's rumored yacht. I'm going to stress that word. It's rumored that he knew how to have a good time. There's actually a Bill in the AFC records for somewhere around six hundred. FOX seems he threw a party at the ASC in a chair was thrown through windows or something center bucks in nineteen. Forty four. Yeah, that's a lot of money. Party. Here's a animal. Okay. So you know, that's, you know, burn the candle at both ends and and unfortunately he passed away. There's a bunch of famous shots that people always go to a citizen Kane the pan up from Susan singing on the upper floor till the men holding their nose, but what are the shots that for you that like a cinematographer would appreciate that us civilians wouldn't wouldn't even know where so hard the, the shot that I remember that kind of blew me away in the beginning. Was there in the log cabin right in the beginning joing outside and he's playing with his sled out there and then the camera pushes through, you know, and I was like, how in the hell did they do that? You know, right. It pushes through that. Talk about getting rid of him. Yeah, pushes all the way out. Yeah, you know, they probably Hollywood of the walls out. Yeah, they could move through so that you know, oh yeah. I was like, okay, there's something there you watch these things and you're inspired and then you go figure it out, you know. And that's, that's what I think is to so many cinematographers is well. How the hell do that. Okay. I'm gonna figure out my way of doing it may not be exactly how Gregg Toland, right for sure. I don't have the same resources. I don't have Orson Welles standing next to me, but I'm gonna figure out my way of doing that. And then that all becomes part of your toolkit, Steve, thank you for coming in and and and bringing your, do you mind if I call it a little bit obsessive grain? It's fantastic. Just to sit here in awe at thank you for preserving this amazing piece of film history, and I can only imagine what it must have been like after searching for it so much to touch it for the first time. Pretty cool. You know, I, I had it at my house and you know that it was the camera and me, and to realize even now to go over to the and see it and be near it. And then you know, look at the picture of Tolan standing next to it. It is. It is a cool thing. So I always think when talking about these movies, it's important to kind of conceptualize what was going on. Citizen Kane was released in nineteen forty. One a stamp was three cents. The cost of a house was four thousand dollars. You know and the average rent was thirty two dollars movie ticket price, a dollar. The US is entering into World War Two and Dumbo was the other biggest movie of that year Dumbo. So it's like I'll stick up for the Disney on did no, no on Dumbo. But I think what's interesting about this movie is the nineteen forty one was the beginning of this new era for American. I think there's a, you know, obviously a lot of patriotism like we're going in. We're fighting. There's also this rebellion against. Authority to a certain way or or maybe a grander power. I don't know if that is reflective of the time or maybe I'm just drawing that conclusion. Interesting because I don't think I thought about this as being so alive in the moment until you describe it that way. But the idea that we have a man here at the center of this film who keeps pushing people into wars and it's like this war or Jews that war. Yeah, I mean, that's striking and actually, whoa. Now my brain is like doing another somersault because you have that clip in here of Orson Welles standing next to Hitler. And I always just saw that with my modern is we knew he was bad, but no, you're right. If this was nineteen forty one, he was just beginning to be bad. You didn't know the full extent of the bed. It's really interesting and also showing, like I mean, and again, in the sense that it was a head of its time kind of showing like this is this is the kind of guy he is. It's a very, I don't know. It's a fascinating movie. I think it's interesting to see like the timeframe in which it exists in one thousand forty one. Well, also wait. Hold on. Hold on. So if you went to the movies every single day and your ticket was adult. That was the cost of your rent? Yeah, that would be it. I mean, I guess that's Arclight prices now doing. Well, you know what? I would imagine that you don't even have the choices to go to the movies every day because it probably be the same film playing at the, you know the same theater like you'd have to wait a couple of weeks, but you're getting a lot more for your Milan more bargain for your buck. I mean, I love those light stories. They're great, but I don't know if they're that much value added. I'm getting newsreels. I'm all about it. So with the movie this good, you have to wonder, how did it fare at the Oscars? You would think this movie would clean up at least the way that we view Susan Cain at the number one movie on the list. It was nominated for best picture screenplay actor director, cinematography art direction, editing music, and sound recording. But it only one for screenplay yet. Right? You would think that clearly citizen Kane, just sort of saunter into the Academy Awards and be like, I'll just take all of these please. I'll just put them like in my man of boxes to be labeled statuettes whenever I feel like opening up the them up and looking at them, but no, it was screenplay, which is certainly an amazing screenplay, but it broke through so many barriers. I mean, if you're not winning cinematography on this movie, who who could it been in? The answer is simple. It's a movie called how green was my valley. Are you familiar with how green is my valley? I've never seen how green if my valley, but I'm guessing cinematography is very green. I look. I mean, maybe it's how green was it? Not so green or maybe it's so green. I don't know, but we do a little research. The movie is about the Morgan's a hard working Welsh mining family living in the heart of South Wales during the nineteenth century in the story chronicles life in the South Wales co fields. In the loss of that way of life and its effects on the family. Boring. That sounds boring. Wait, I'm well. Orien- making films about my people and the tiny bit. Well, all right. I'll take. Did you twenty three and me that. Do you know that for sure. Well, then how valley that's not even on the top one hundred. No, in that won best picture best director best supporting actor, best cinematography and art direction. Do you know what that says to me that either says how green was my valley is fucking phenomenal. And you and I are dolts haven't washed movie at or it says, citizen Kane had some enemies. Seems like a Weinstein style Oscar smear campaign. You did. You know, by the way that citizen Kane is basically like the story of film Twitter of nineteen forty one, not. Oh, okay. So people are aware that women, I hated this movie deliberately like this Rosebud thing. Have you heard Rosebud really meant to Liam medal? I, it was his wife's clitoris was his. Yeah, it was his. Is he was in love with it actually, very good actor. This is the one thing that Orson Welles always said he felt bad about was that William Randolph Hearst was in love with an actress named Marian Davies. They're together for thirty two years, and she was actually a really good actress, but people thought she was bad because of this movie, and he always a little guilty about that. But what happened was Orson Welles was like this toast of Hollywood is saying and everybody loved him, and they were so excited. And you know there were these two major gossip columnists right? The willow Parsons and Hedda hopper, yes. So they were always rivals. And what happened is Orson Welles showed this movie to Hedda hopper who was already a little bit mad because she wanted to be invited to see it earlier. And when she sees it, she calls villian rental. I the next day and Hearst employed her competitor Luella. She calls him and she's like, Mr. Hurst. I don't know why Luella didn't tell you. This picture was about you. So then hearse gets mad and he yells at Luella Parsons. So then both had hopper and the Wella are just fighting to prove to William Randolph Hearst, how much they. You like him by dissing, citizen Kane. So it's basically the rival of to film journalists, film Twitter, nineteen, forty nineteen forty one starting this fight for their own benefit in a way and getting Hearst involved. And then when her skits involved, he basically says to ARCO who made Susan Kane. He's like, well, I'm not gonna put anything about any of your movies in this paper unless you burn the film. He really wanted to burn the film and he put this pressure on all of Hollywood. He was like, you know what? Hollywood, you're not that good at being like moral and righteous. What if my papers start telling all the studios, what's wrong with all of the films? And so like Louis b, Mayer, everybody got involved in there like you gotta burn this film. Whoa. Then it kind of went underground for a bit right. Had a resurgence in the fifties as a little bit. Yeah. Because like what happened was Orson Welles basically lake showed it to every single person. He think of it was like test screenings for Oscar stuff. Just like everybody come in and watch my movie. They might burn it. But if enough people watched it, he thought they would say it's good. Don't burn get people on their side. And then the story is he showed it to. He had to show it to the censors who are going to make the final decision about whether or not they could have it at what he did is he knew the sensor in particular that who is going to be there was really Catholic. So he put a rosary in his pocket, and when they were walking out of the screening room, he dropped his rosary and he's like, oh, excuse me. And he picked it up and he was like, that rosary is why this movie got shown

"Today's episode is brought to you by the NF Purna picture, sorry to bother you, which is coming out this July. Six. I just saw the trailer for this movie and I am so into it like I haven't been this excited about a movie in a long time. Have you seen the trailer? I have nothing to tell you, but I have seen the movie. Well, sorry about you when it premiered at Sundance and it was like top of the festival for me, it's wild. It stars Lookie Stanfield who's like one of my favorite actors and amazing Atlanta. You've seen him in Atlanta. I mean, every time he pops up and stuff. You know it's going to be good. He's a weirdo. Like he's such a weirdo. Like when I interviewed him once he told me that he grew up listening to slip knot and Disney soundtracks, and that's what makes little chief. Now, I know that's the secret, and that's the secret sauce. But I've been waiting for a movie that lets him be full weirdo. He's never really gotten to go full weirdo in in this movie. He plays a call center guy, and it goes full weirdo like boots, Riley, the director of this big fan. He's amazing. This is his first real film and it is like it is the kind of debut where you sit up and you say, whoa, this guy can tell a crazy. Satire. That's funny that has actual real world implications that gets super strange in. It's visually like Gondree esque. It's everything. This is the real deal. I'm so because people to watch this movie, I cannot wait check out what we're talking about by looking at the red band trailer, which is up right now online. It's insanely good. Sorry to bother. You comes out July six and until then I say, keep on watching the trailer because it's that good once a day everyday. That's my prescription for you. It's nine hundred forty one. An old man drops a snow globe. The movie citizen. Hey, everybody. I'm Paul Scheer Nicholson and welcome to episode. One of unspoiled. We will always say together. That's our thing. We are so excited that you are joining us and what we are endeavouring to do in this podcast is to watch the one hundred best films according to AFI episode. One, we have ninety nine more episodes after this. I keep on calling it a mini series, but this is actually a very long mini series. I would say it's more of an epic. We're doing some epic films in this top one hundred list, and I think the best way to kick off this list is to start with the number one film on it. I agree. If we're the sherpas of film, we should start at the top of the mountain. Let's know what the best is and then we'll see what else is out there. Let's map this landscape of the top one hundred and we will start right here with the number one film of all time. Citizen Kane. Okay. So here's the thing. I am not sure that I have ever seen citizen Kane. I feel like I know more of this movie as a general idea. Yeah, and that no citizen Kane, there are references to citizen Kane in the world. Yes. There's reference assistance account of Simpson's. I've, here's one come on Boise, the old guys, Spanish weight, come back. You can't do this to me. I'm trials, but. Burns. Due Smithers tip over this table for me, yes, sir. So you could see that and say, you know that that citizen Kane, but do you know it Kane? No. See, I don't even know that that's a reference to Susan came because I never watched it. So I wrote down though before I watched the movie, what I thought it was, which was I said, newspaper man has no friends, and no one knows why he said Rosebud being richest great, but it doesn't make you happy. That was my. That was my guess at what what is in Cain was, oh, that's a decent guest, and we put out a call before we sat down to ask other people who hadn't seen citizen Kane, what do you think it's about? And here's what they said. I've never seen the movie system cane, but I've always imagined that it was about sugar plantations. I've never seen citizen Kane. The only time I've heard about it is from people who quote unquote really likes films. He had a swin named Rosebud rose by which you learn way later and other spoiler is like his teddy bear something I, I don't know if he'd demonized sledding or or something against the sledding community, but it seems he turned on Rosebud. I, I know the Rosebud thing is like a twist or something at the end. So I'm thinking it's like a murder, mystery. Some Mike guess is that it's a murder mystery where it turns out the sledges the weapon guys. Definitely a citizen though. Maybe it's about getting citizenship. It's supposed to be a very good movie. I don't know. I seen it. I know I haven't seen it. It's hard to get. And old movies are sometimes boring. I think citizen Kane's. About a guy who figures out that his life is meaningless, and then he dies. I had a dream about it when I was younger, but I was too scared to watch the movie. Wow, wow. That is amazing. Some really good guesses in their sugar sugar cane. Wow, the murder. Mystery was amazing. We'll see. This is so interesting because hearing those people talk eights. This is a movie that that I think some people go, oh, that's a film snobs like favorite movie. Like mine is point break and my my taking going into it was first of all, while the scope of this is pretty amazing because it starts off after the death with this newsreel of of the xanadu estate that citizen Kane lives in, and it just seemed like everything about the movie seem big and impressive, and it was lit in this beautiful way. And then you start to understand like, oh, I've seen references to all of this in other things, and then I'm not gonna lie. I would say with in the first twenty. Minutes as is my hot take on a b that don't like this movie life, but then totally switched over. I think I got a little bit confused in the structure of it on the first viewing because we go from his childhood to him, essentially running a newspaper, and then giving up as newspaper 'cause he's changing ages. He's doing everything and I just didn't understand the time line. And maybe it's also the fact that I don't understand that nineteen twenty nine as part of the great depression that there's a certain element like that they're queuing you in nineteen forty, you probably oh yeah, that's one of the great depression happened, but there wasn't an underlining of it for me at that moment when he signs over the rights to the newspaper, but then I went back at the envy. Why was I while was getting caught in this moment? It all made sense if it had been made. If this came out in nineteen forty one, then if they came out in like two thousand eighteen today, we'd be like, oh yeah, that's the stock market crash of the yes eighties. And we get all these references and it's clear the eighties, look at his sweater, like we can't. Tell that stuff when you sit here. And I mean, maybe it's also me being, you know, it's it's, I think it's interesting because it's a more challenging film in structure than most films of the time. Right. Really, I don't know if it broke it. It wasn't the very first film to tell a story through so many points of view, but it tells a story through like five points of view. I think at least, yeah, and jumps back and forth. It jumps through ages. He starts in the movie around five. He ended the movie around seventy and he's fantastic. By the way I, I love that performance in their swimming. So dynamic about him when he is playing age appropriate. I would say like when he is the age it, he is. This is a again the way I know Orson Welles is through his commercials or the way I was introduced in as a kid, no line through time. You know those, like those dumb fees, the peace. Nature's and Saif to the icy waters of a single spring. Orson Welles who imagined what he would look like when he was older and he was right and wrong. Like he thought, I'm Morrison wells. When I get older, I'll be balled and I'll be a little fat. Instead. He had a ton of air and he was immensely fat, but they're Orson wells here. Okay. I as backdrop for people really figuring out Orson Welles as more than like the guy who did the voice of a transformer right. Yeah, he was this guy who showed up in Hollywood with like a blank check. Basically they were like, yo, you run the mercury theatre you do crazy stuff. You're a genius, prodigy guy, make a movie, do whatever you want. You have this deal that nobody gets like, we're not even going to ask you, you got it it. He made it more expensive. Like he raised the budget made them really mad at him, but he was Orson Welles and everybody wrote about him showing up and they're like, oh my fucking God. It's Orson Welles. At this point he had just done like some stage productions in war the world. Is that about right? Like that's okay. Like his first line in here, accuse you were talking about the newsroom beginning, it opens with his death with Rosebud. It goes to this newsreel it in the newsreel. The very first thing that Orson Welles says here as citizens is Charles, foster Kane is don't believe everything you listen to on radio in that sin being like, ha ha. You know, I did war of the worlds a couple years ago. It just being totally self-referential kind of bragging. Well, it's interesting that this movie has some jokes in Lebanon to there's in. It's because I think again and. This is me going. I am a fan of. I am not like no, don't like black and white movies. I love these, but there's sometimes I think this movie feels like there's a chore that go, it's going to be a melodrama, but there there's a light touch to a lot of this film, and it's funny and it's is relevant. I just was different than I expected it to be. It's vital like you in this young filmmaker burning his car to begin just what I got even the Orson Welles that you see here isn't even real Orson Welles like when he's playing young citizen Kane, and he's like a billionaire with this gold mine walking around his new newspaper office. He is wearing hours of makeup, and of course it to look even as hot as that cane. He is like, wow, making himself Mythili, handsome like people saw citizen Kane, and they wrote the, he was the most beautiful man who ever lived. And I was like, I'm under so much makeup. Y'all don't even know. It's so funny because I watch and I was like, this guy you are, he's at that is that is a movie star, see it. It's got the chin dimple. He's dancing with showgirls that. I mean in that sequence, I never knew that. Like again, I, I've been a at Disneyland many a times and gone in the great movie ride. And they always played that. That moment of him like flapping his knee and dance with the girl. I didn't know that was from citizen Kane, like it was, oh, it was. It was. It was basically like the end of usual suspects for me. It was like the whole moves like, oh, that's from that. That's on that because it's like the the cultural breakout of this movie is gigantic. It's hugely influential. Yeah. So many levels. I mean, he was one of the first guys to ever point the camera so low. You could look at a ceiling like people just filmed it like a play and they're like, here's the walls and we have life America director, right? Yeah, because it was, I did a little bit of research. Yes. And the it was at the cabinet of Dr. Yes. So some people were like, oh, you're, you're aping our style, you're stealing. You're plagiarizing us like even like d w Griffith said something like, oh, I I like what he did, but I liked it when I did it, I know or something like that. You know how you know it's, but it's interesting. I wonder like because in in this time when maybe style was the only thing that you had to rest your laurels on that it was like, well, no, I did the ceiling shots now you can't do that. But you know where I think Orson Welles was really, really a genius, and we're going to talk more about cinematography later. Then there's so much to talk about with he was a radio guy as we said, theater guy, and that means he's a guy who was used to doing stuff without visual effects. He was used to doing stuff with sound. Yeah, and he does stuff in sound here that I think is as groundbreaking as anything he does with visuals. Here I wanna play a clip fo- oh, by the way, he had a budget. He didn't have as much of a legit to build, say xanadu like the biggest palace on earth. But what he did was he figured out how to use sound effects to give the impression of something being gigantic. Like this scene where he is in his giant mentioned xanadu with his second wife, Susan, who's doing a jigsaw puzzle, and their marriage is very, very bad. Susan hunting him. None of before. A lot more sense collecting statues. You may be right. I sometimes wonder. Let you get into the habit. We
