"So i feel like you're talking directly to me a movie called master see it man legacy years ago where i watched all of the hitman movies. Early sa- i three. I think there's a fourth one. Since then i have not caught up with that one yet But i remember you. You speak highly of this movie. And i added my next netflix queue and finally got around to watching it a few days ago and i heard this movie. It is like i said masters e man legacy is the movie it is directed by a yin whooping who is like a legend in the hong kong. Ya martial arts. Cinema world was the action choreographer For movies like the matrix and crouching tiger hidden dragon directed a bunch of movies in his own right as well And you can tell that. This movie was directed by somebody who absolutely knows. What the hell they're doing when it comes to fight sequences. I think i'd like this more than half. I don't know if i could say all of the men movies but a majority of them because it seems to be having a little bit more fun than those films. I love donnie yen. in the man rubies. his character is so stoic and serious And this movie just seems to have a little bit more of a like an attitude to it of that makes sense but It it sort of has like a little bit more of a modern flare the fight sequences are all you know really fun to watch day. Batista plays villainous and he is just the hulking beasted. It reminds me of like you know in gardens the galaxy because there are so many different comic book characters that all feel really larger than life. It's kind of tough to remember. Just how huge day he is because these standing next to a nine foot talking tree or whatever But watching a movie like this. It's so clear. Just like the the brute physicality of this guy and You know he. He has a couple of memorable little fight sequences in this film to But max zhang. I think is how you pronounce his name. Is the the star of this movie. He it's about him in his kid and it's a spin off of the it man movies and I just i like to the father. Son dynamic there and they encounter a like a local gang that is run by michelle yeoh. so that was. That's always great to see. I saw before i clicked on it. That tony jaa is in this movie and i was excited because i like to see on bach movies when they came on all those years ago. But tony is only in this movie. Prep for probably four minutes or something. So it's a big appearance from him but Yeah if you're looking for just like a solid a movie with like fun fight. Sequences really great moment. Actually i don't know if you remember the scene but there's a moment where In in this bar area. I think they call it bar street There are all these neon signs that are outside in the corridor. This big like hanging over the streets sort of forming a canopy. And there's this fight scene where these characters like jumping from sign to sign. It's really really over the top and really kind of ridiculous but kind of rules at the same time. So i love that. Remember that scene. Exactly and i do agree with you. It feels like i feel like the man movies. My problem with them is that they all start feel kind of the same and they all feel very wrote but this feels like a movie you know essentially just like it just going all out with the visuals and the action and even some of the emotion and i really really enjoyed it for that. My hot take. I mean i maybe this is the hot take. This is my favorite at man movie. Maybe barring the first man but there's a there's a interesting thing right. I think that the man movies really want to become a superhero movie in a way. They really they really struggle with the bio pic barriers that the man story kind of limits them with and i think masters e amend legacy is just like. We're just going to become a superhero movie. We're going to do what we want. And that's why i really like it. Yeah i'm right there with you and it also has it sort of gets into the some of the same like politics as the man movies like it's all about like a corrupt police force run by white people when the people rising up and all that kind of stuff. So there's definitely a through line there like a through line but Yeah it seems to be willing to have some more fun with everything. So i joined it quite a bit. So that is streaming on netflix right. Now it's called masters e man legacy so i took one recommendation from asia also took recommendation for chris and watched the silent partner. Which is movie you talked about. Not too long ago. Which stars elliott gould and christopher plummer and it was directed by duke and written by curtis hanson who won an oscar for writing the screenplay for financial Became out in the late seventies and Matt elliott gould is just like in the groove in the pocket in this movie. This is like peak elliott gould period and He looks great and his character is is so great and like a lot of the characters in the movie at at a certain point just like spend five minutes talking about how much they wanna bang him because he's look so good he. He essentially stops a robbery There's a guy played by. Christopher plummer dresses up like santa claus and tries to rob his bank. He plays a bank teller and then he goes on tv and just like a typical liberal like local news story. And everybody's like. Oh my god we saw on tv. You look incredible. Look for like minutes in minutes on it. It's pretty funny. That way but yemen. Christopher plummer like i know he just passed away in a lot of people were talking about his work in movies. Listen to music and knives out and everything. I'd never seen this film before. But this is like a totally different side to him where he is just a complete scumbag and like Super threatening and really like unnerving a in terms of just the screen presence that he brings to this character..

"Was thinking leap. Thunder the mountain is at number nine and security example of that live in the studio thing. That he was creating as well as this. This thing where he started looking half St- back before even fifties rock and roll he started going into standards and jump blues and other stuff that you know is kind kinda pre Elvis Presley, Berry John I mean this is I think an example of a track where it started to become clear that he was going to be pushing into new territory in the. Twenty first century do recall your I listen to yeah I think what you say kind of the way he you have to pay attention a little bit but the combination of the song of like it's kind of like Bob Wills is kind of rock million talk about Marini it's combining all these things in the kind of his own idiom of the pass it's subtle. Detail John that you don't really aren't necessarily always together despite all the history hostile times people could have done it, and this is one of those examples of that where he's. Making the pass, the history kind of his own in in this release way I was always struck by the beginning where it makes it clear that you're hearing a band kind of start up in a room sending a message that this is again, this is not time out of mind. This is something else altogether, and then as we're working on this, I realized that in the Bible Thunder on the mountain is actually like at that's God that's a signal. That's that's a god, says he's arrives in it's also like it begins this thing in the twentieth century of Dylan being sort of like horny on main. Part of the thing of him making clear that he's not half dead is showing. He's like really really alive. So he's Kinda like lusting after Lisa keys and I've stuck the milk from a thousand cows. Is this like old timey blues boasting about its sort of sexual prowess which is you know I think wears a lot better from an old man somehow you Kinda gets A pass but I. You know I I find that amusing hopefully everyone does I. Love the Alicia Keys referencing that song because you just classic the that at its core as as you guys have said is about either pre rock and roll forties and fifties music or it's about like ancient biblical history, but it's also about cool young pop star two, thousand, six, I. And number ten, Duquesne Whistle, which is definitely one of my favorite. Letter. To keynote. Blowing. A. Sweet by one. Actually have a boss deliver teacher that I got one of his concerts that features the phrase can't you hear that Duquesne Whistle blowing on a picture retrain? Is this it's a great song. It you know has this great kind of rollicking band energy that we've been talking about many associate Americans have the lyrics are so tightly written and so great. He's just throwing this barrage of wildly the place imagery at you. It's a song that could be about God death love sex listening to us. It could be about an actual trumpet or whistle or whatever the instrument that you looking into is. It really sweeps you in an incredible scenes that are for that album tempest, which is an album that has Saturday songs and some other songs there. Maybe not not great, but it starts off on a really strong. I always loved the Intro, which is this kind of little jazzy piece like this little kind of. A true inter that stands standard from the song, and as soon as they heard it just knowing Bob's ways that was like this came from somewhere specific I believe it's a Deli were more in tune amusingly in in the interview dealing cited I forgot what but a totally different source which I think he just got confused it's pretty clearly this thing. It's a great example of short sounds exactly like this little sort of ragtime thing from nineteen thirty. But like who else is bringing you that in this century in any fresh context, you know it's it's a wonderful interpretation of it. Number eleven is Huq's tune which I. Almost, forgot existed it's great. Decision. And under. My Future. Is Really. Great Fun any the story behind that wind is that you know a few years earlier gave written things have changed or wonder boys directed by Curtis Hanson that as you've discussed, this is when it pops great songs ever. had. A. New movie again, showed Bob and early. Opera Disgrace on for it in movie his kind of faded into obscurity and as a result song the either. But it's a really really great song this. Beautiful stately love? Song has real emotional honesty and openness. It's rare in Audubon. He's one of a few people. It's like when you win Oscar for a movie song, it feels so good that you then say, yes to a lot of movies afterwards it's true springsteen to you just keep writing more and more open for the next ask earned it doesn't work out but it often prompts. It's also like it seems to be a great songwriting prompt for great songwriters said I'm glad he were some great songs for perhaps forgettable movies. Let's go to number thirteen I contain multitudes. Jamaa Has. Off. A point worth making about Bob both in century in last century is the sense of humor which people sometimes forget about. It can be really funny. An assignment said this song. Parts that are quote absurd verging on insane which I think is the only thing you could possibly say about the song seminarian would. Be An frank thing. Lead you in that direction that run? Yeah. That's the one. English says I. I'm just like an frank. You're okay. Just like Indiana Jones your. Name is Anan British bad boys the rolling stones I mean he's gotTa be messing with you. There's No. Irving that that makes sense but it's a it's a weird. Funny I like how it shows you the Bob still you know he's he's still in there. He's joking around the take himself too seriously, which is ultimately what that song multitudes outright he's he's kind of both puddings off in the context of these great artists throughout time you know exulted Walt Whitman or will you bake but he's also showing the kind of still the trickster after all these years he's kind of. I mean technically speaking he does have things in common with Anne Frank Indiana Jones and the rolling stones that alter the. It's just a deranged thing to say, but he's not wrong. It's just very weird. Like I I paint landscapes paint nudes is just amazing. It's just that I drive fast cars that eat fast foods. It's hard to it's hard to police yourself in the mindset in which he wrote the song but it it's I think that makes it all the more. Entertaining he's gotTa be nothing but he Sounds like that? You love bit. The only is done to date on this album on very serious interview arrested Harry serious doubt that song those lines and game answers that are just clearly with the interview attribute of your that. Yeah especially with the Frank Franklin, he's like every line has a purpose and all three of those characters are locked together. So I would love to get in his mindset it's how they are locked together. And then he started praising jump Blues Music for Raiders of the lost Ark which I love to but I did not expect. From him he's like a an interview. He's like a vending machine where you put the coin unlike anything could come out. You know he's like the world's most insane vending machine like. Like you do not know what's GonNa come like if you gave me a list of ten things, he was likely to stay in one of them was we're absolutely rhapsodised the work of John Williams on the Indiana. Jones score I would not have guessed that number nineteen we have one of the standards that Bob recorded he got into a deep groove of. Records which were a lot of them were kind of Frank Sinatra associated and there seemed to on the surface again to be a certain perversity to why would Bob Dylan of all people Be Recording these pre rock standards. But what it really was was an expression of where his musical interests started to lie and also part of his route that he hadn't really explored. But you can hear the influence of these kinds of songs on a lot of his twenty first century stuff I you know I mean. Beyond the horizon for instance is basically a rewrite of red sails in the sunset, which is a you know like a bing crosby song. That's probably the most blatant one. But gentle maybe talk about why why was born?.

I did was your reaction. And that feeling I know it's funny. How people always say, you never know if it's a great movie, or you know, I just felt like it was the greatest movie I just felt like oh my God. I'm in this. And then I to this day feel like Jonathan was so special. I mean, it sounds pretty simple. But it felt like he hired all the best people that he thought were the best people. And then he just let them do what they do. Which isn't always the case. And seems like the simplest trick. All totally because it was kind of like a party like everybody's having a great time.

And so in the room was just me, my mom into chairs, and then like maybe like six seven feet away was Stanley Kubrick in his chair and a little video recorder.

"I was revisiting Aleka dental recently. We just movie. I love pretty much watch it every every year. It's such a great film, and I did that. I would like to see you play at exit then and also pay. But wide again, I look, I would love to and prior to out our Leicester's director of Curtis Hanson have passing away a couple of years ago, we did have conversations about whether or not we might look at doing some sort of sequel and obviously, you know, there is the the books that already exists that Elroy right? But there was talk about whether we would do something new, whether we would actually take the story and and you know, sort of do ninety sixty three ten years on from from film. But you know it never it never eventuated, but look and it's, it's difficult, isn't it? Because people often ask me about Priscilla as well and doing a sequel to that and and excited as I am at the prospect of something that you also go. Just think about Greece in the rocky horror show. Careful now you wanna you know, put it leave it alone. Love agrees to these days film. It's been reevaluated. It was Michelle Pfeiffer. I wasn't. It wasn't deep Michelle. Yeah. Okay. I need to go back and look at it again because I, I need to find the love. I want to ask you specifically about one scene in LA confidential, and it's after spoiler alert it's a, it's a movie. Those at night seven spoiler alert after Jackson's killed Dudley Smith goes to goes to Ed actually. Your reaction to that moment tells the audience what we need to know, but doesn't help w. Smith when he needs to know. Otherwise movie would lot shorter. He talked about that moment. Can remember that. I know exactly the moment you mean? Yeah. Yeah. And it's it's in a big close up and obviously we see it actually, as you point out, realize that that name is something that only Jackson's knows. And so for Dudley Smith to present that nine to Ed, he's just giving himself up essentially. And that's the beauty of film to me is being able to be that intimate with the character where you can really just change you expression in the slot way in the most subtle way and and completely Notley telegraph a piece of information and Iowa side of myself as dies, too few years to realize it what's the least amount I can do at this point in time.
