"david david ruffin" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour

"Something you can just sort of like half watch, and like half maybe be like scrolling twitter on your phone. You are fully engrossed, and that is a testament to the movie as a whole, but like especially Roy as I was saying because he's just selling grossing, she has so many facets to him that we get to see right. I mean I love the scene of him. With his home. Apocalypse now the bar. Has Basically become sort of this shift in shared moment elegant. Because Like on the one hand it's over. It feels so timeless right like everybody I know like knows those middle aged black man who walk into the club. You got the Marvin Gaye, go in. Maybe you know you had a drink or two your hat on. You feel it real. Zadie, ish. With that so well, and then at the same time. The deeper they get into the jungle in Vietnam. If the way he falls apart, he's so emotionally wounded, but on top of that. Is just completely unable to deal with that. In ways that are healthy unit to the point that even the relationship that he has with his time. This man might be the sort of trump supporting Maga hat wherein you know like just unapologetically bitter. But he still has this enormous amount of love for his son, and not just that he sent him to Morehouse Ray. Like. He sent him to the College of Martin Luther. King and he's extraordinarily proud of that I think one of the things that really sort of engrossing about this character. Is that so often like we think of? Lack trump supporters in terms of character is lake, diamond and silk. And they be really confounding, and what we see with Dell Rice character. Is that just because she's voted for this man? It doesn't mean that he sort of completely alienated by black people like he's sent his son to one of the most well known in railway guarded. HP's in the country and he's really proud of that. And of course, that's worse bike went to school, and like so many more health men has carried that with him birth, his life and career rate over sixty, and he is still like. Rapid for the House is hard as he possibly. I think so. Many of his characters tend to wear. Gear like it's just like. It might be. Required in. There's so much happening in this movie. Right like this is a war epoch. This is a an intergenerational drama. This is coming to terms with PTSD. It is swirling in arguments about reparations it. Yet imperialism critiques of America throughout its history. It felt in some ways like like Spike Lee. Greatest hits real like it is packing in almost every different kind of movie spike. Lee has made into one story with individual characters. Not every character contains the multitudes that Delroy Lindo character contains, but you are seeing so many different relationships play out within this two hour and thirty six minute epic story I was just I was really impressed with just the grandiosity of it it is, it is an exhausting and emotional ride. Ya think basically. Basically like the way I described this move was Shakespearean. Because it's got this sort of enormous grandiosity, and because spike is so reluctant to sort of shrink that view, and maybe just focus on like one thing or two that he's like Nope, we're we're going to do all of it. All of it is intersecting. Everything has an effect everything else like you can't talk about one without the other and on top of that rate like I, just to sit in on a film studies clause, and just like listen to them break. Because, you know you kind of touched on this with aspect ratios. You've got these flash bags that are shot in sixteen millimeter, which apparently had to fight really hard for even sort of like the storytelling problems that he has to solve because you know, he's limited by budget, and so he can't use the DA. Changing capabilities is not the Irishman right? This is not the Irishman, but instead of that actually ends up. Up Making the film that much more interesting, because you have these scenes that take place during the war where you have Chadwick Bozeman, you know who plays Stormin Norman, and who remains you know his young self like throughout the course of the film because he's killed there, but you have these men you know even in those scenes. They've still got the flexible gray in their beard, and what he's able to communicate just. About like where they are mentally, and how much real estate this war has occupied in their minds, even after norms death I definitely think that's one of the things about this movie that will be remembered and celebrated, even though it was basically a feat of budget problem solving I think it actually turns out for the better, because of yeah, it took me a little while to. Get used to the de aging I think because they have been primed from the Irishman six months earlier is like. What I'm confused, why are they? Why are they all the same age? Chadwick is clearly twenty years younger than all of these guys but I agree that it really does work to show the way in which. Time pass for them, but it hadn't. For Chadwick, he was still stuck in that place in that memory, and how their bodies are still there, but then their minds can easily go back to that time period, and it just really worked well, and although it's still very much, is unfortunate. That spike is having trouble scratching up the money to do something like that and has been throughout his entire career, so and he still manages to put out amazing movies and go to Vietnam and create the sprawling two and a half hour. Hour epic on unlimited budget, and so he's so resourceful like I it's just I. Don't WanNa like downplay any of this artistic merits, but like honestly the fact that he has been able to do all the things that he has with half the budget that his peers and contemporaries have is just still astounding to me. Your I agree with you I think this movie turns that weakness into a strength. You mentioned riot wanting to see a film studies class about this movie. There's an excellent piece in vulture by Jason Bailey. Picking apart some of the many many influences and echoes and references in this movie. I highly recommend that also if you're watching this movie and you WanNa Sense of care that has gone into every little facet of this film I want to call out the fact that the main four guys. Their names are Otis Melvin, Paul and Eddie. which are the same first names as the members of the temptations? And then the son is David and their son is David David Ruffin. That is the kind of care that goes to every frame of this movie and I think we all agree this is a.
