"Defines electromagnetic fields as pollutants and. These pollutants cannot be insured. So the city's can I say show us you have insurance and they won't be able to show it because in New York New Jersey. We have one big Equality Alpine Tower has all sorts of ten on it. And everybody knows that if you live would stone's throw that place If you have a house there you can get cancer so so are you saying that. Yeah now wait wait wait you know. I don't think of first of all the good news about cancer is. It's not a death sentence that we do have better therapies now. But what we can tell you. Is this studies that have been done where they take blood from people who live closer to towers as a pair as compared to those who further way have looked at biochemical markers in their blood again? This is peer reviewed and his five found chemical compounds that we know predict cancer risk as well as damage to the nervous system are more high levels of those chemical markers in people who live closer to cell towers now towers can be made operate in a different way and the allowable amount of emissions from our towers in the United States is much much higher than in Switzerland and other countries where they have more sophisticated rules and monitoring we have no monitoring at all of what's coming out of our towers not being monitored so we depend on them of course for cellphones but the whole issue of five G. is being rethought and that's why Swiss re wrote a report last year before covert which they said five. G. is off the leash meaning out of control and they will not cover any damages for it so with the telecom lawyers come in and they threatened to sue the city. If the city doesn't agree to permit the towers but the city can come back and say give us your insurance. And they and the city cannot be held liable if they deny a permit because of the failure of the company that show that they can ensure against jam now. What else got the public? Everything pandemic threats of course Actually done I'm doing research with people in China right now that I think people need to know about and that is that they have shown the effectiveness of taking vitamin C. prophylactically to prevent covert and to make it less serious. And let me tell you. One interesting anecdote. A family of four people was taking care of a fifth member who was ill. She turned out to have covert she ended up in the ICU. On ventilator as you may know in the early days of ventilation most people on ventilators died certainly in China. That was the case. Eighty New York eighty percent of the people on his side. Okay well we now understand why that happened. First of all they were using too much pressure. For the oxygen the lungs people with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Which goes along with this? Which is what actually kills. People are not able to take such high pressure and so that is one of the reasons why so many people died but this family did the following because one member was very interested in nutritional things taking between one to six grams of vitamin C. A day with a with five thousand units of the and fifty milligrams of zinc right so it's vitamin C Zinc and e and had every member of her family. Who were helping to take care of the sick person who had covert. They know she has. She had covert alright cheese in the hospital. Either all adults. They don't live together but they all have been exposed through. They're taking care of their grandmother Davis at a time. But I tell you what happened. None of them got Cova. Did Not a single one of them got code and the grandmother who in high vitamin C High Vitamin B. And and so Stan Sunshine on the beach and a lot of the e lots of fruits and vegetables and keep your distance. Keep your distance. You got it John. Dr Deborah Davis. Thank you so much.

"The nation. The CIA with its murky jurisdiction in covert, dealings, was suddenly viewed as the embodiment of everything wrong with the government reporter saw their chance to really dig deep into the. See as most controversial secrets in nineteen seventy four New York Times reporter Seymour, Hersh published an expose on operation chaos and either legal CIA program. The placed American citizens associated with the antiwar movement under surveillance on top of that it went against their mandate to not operate on American soil. The Hirsch articles were seen by many as the final nail in the coffin of the CIA in addition to operation chaos Hersh reported on a number of other illegal CIA programs that engaged with everything from supporting foreign propaganda to attempting assassinations of world leaders, these exposed black ops programs were considered the first of a series of programs and actions carried out by the CIA that were finally exposed after the fall of the Nixon White House, this assortment of mostly legal activity. These came to be officially referred to as the family, jewels, the combined scandals of the NSA relationship Watergate, and now the family jewels, led to the creation of the church committee in nineteen seventy five led by Senator Frank church. The committee was tasked by congress to investigate the CIA's actions over the previous two and a half decades. And report on whether the agency had as her said violated its charter, the church committee conducted hearings and investigations for over a year before, finally publishing its findings in April of nineteen seventy six the final report was comprised of six books in seven volumes of transcripts from Senate hearings. The results were more than disturbing. The declassified sections of the church report revealed, an astounding amount of wrongdoing. The CIA had engage. Edged with the F B I to intercept and read the mail of private US citizens without a warrant. It had conducted a similar operation on international mail coming to and from China, the agency had commissioned numerous failed assassination, plots against Fidel Castro, the then president of Cuba. It had engaged in behavior. Modification research under the infamous MK alter program in this was just the work. That was declassified huge portions of the church committees reports on the family jewels were redacted when it was first reported on in nineteen seventy six. Won unanimous opinion at the time of the church committee's report was given how distressing the declassified material was the classified material must have been astoundingly worse. We should know here that despite the numerous bombshells included in the church committee's report, there was no mention of an operation Mockingbird. The world's media concluded from the declassified reports that the CIA hit engaged with a network of foreign journalists to push pro American propaganda. Carl Bernstein of all the president's men fame wrote an extensive article in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven that detailed the minutia of how the agency identified recruited and utilize journalists around the world, this article served as a foundation of much of what we think we know about operation Mockingbird today. Though we should note that Bernstein doesn't actually refer to the oper-. Ration- as Mockingbird on the actual name operation Mockingbird didn't enter the public consciousness until a few years later in nineteen seventy nine Deborah Davis published, Catherine the great Katharine Graham, and the Washington Post as far as we can tell this proudly unauthorized biography was the first public document, actually name operation Mockingbird, as we understand it today enacted in response to the international organization of journalists, and it's pro communist propaganda Davis claim that Mockingbird was overseen by Frank Wizner a former CIA deputy during the early nineteen fifties by the mid nineteen fifties. Mockingbird had members of CBS the New York Times Newsweek, and dozens of other American media entities in its pocket the broad goal of this program was to promote pro American sentiment among the increasingly restless youth..

The numbers are six one seven two four ten thirty again, six one seven two five four ten thirty or the toll free number eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. That's always a toll free number here. Eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. Okay. Johnny. So before the break, we talked a little bit about the article that have been in the New York Times on in mid December. And it was based on a sixty minutes article where they're saying regarding how screen times affect our young minds. The jury is still out and I read a couple of paragraphs it helps us to appreciate that. They're doing some vague research with what they understand may be vague information or input to begin with. But I'm sure you have more thoughts about that. Well, you know from a psychological standpoint. And if you talk to any psychologists or pediatricians or there's lots of different ways of of measuring impact, you know. So from young children developing where now seeing studies you don't have to take a snapshot of their brain. We're seeing kids that are involved with screen time. More are not developing the verbal skills that they did. And they're not hitting those certain marks by meeting certain verbal skills. So we're really having to reevaluate what what are the ages. I mean what's going on here? Now. Sauce skills, you know, being able to interact being able to literally look into another person's face. So the social emotional impact that this is having just because time spent with your face in front of a piece of technology as opposed to your face or your interaction with another human. That's what we're starting to see is having the impact and we're going right up the line here. Now, I work with college kids every day. I mean, I go to schools and high schools and middle schools, and but the statistics now on college kids is this level of relationships. So sex believe it or not between the eighteen to twenty four year old are on a decline relationships are developing everything is sort of staying in this digit. Elise socialized realm. So things are superficial. You're kind of feeling this false sense of connectedness by being home alone. But interacting through social media. So we're not going through the process or through this period in history of digital socialization. We're changing the way that we interact and by changing the way, we interact. It is having these nuanced deficiencies in the human experience and so between building relationships building. Trust building intimacy, human development, social emotional connections being able and then don't forget the the level of trust. And the level of close relationships that you have with the people in your life. That is a direct correlation to your level of mental wellbeing. Your depression? You know, your ability to cope. So, you know, you're not, you know, we're not seeing physiological, you know, research on this. But we're feeling the impact. And they think that's what everybody is saying. We know this doesn't feel right? And so the the term that I'm starting to use more and more now is digital socialization. So we're getting away from the device or the technology itself to be able to talk about the process. This is what your behavior is doing. And this behavior is having this impact on your life. So if even if we just go beyond his heavenly days brain scans, you see so much empirical evidence in this is going off on a tangent. We can come back to a little bit later, but look at the amount of teen suicides contract. Tragic. Cyberbullying because the kids don't know how to either lay off it. Or don't understand the impact they are having. And you know, you gotta wonder after playing hundreds or thousands of hours of video games. The idea of sending a tweet to someone that's going to push them over the over the edge seems almost like make believe in some cases. I don't think they realize the impact on it. But there you've got real empirical evidence where time and time again kids have been driven to the point of no return why because of that negative socializing and the thing is the bombarded by twenty four seven. Twenty four seven and it's not it's not even just this overt cyberbullying. That's that's the blatant example. Right. That's like, that's okay. But it's sort of this. You know, the level of validation where I'm not relevant or it's it's an as self esteem. You know, everybody, we know that you're looking at your peers, and your friends, and you know, you're looking at these pictures, and you know, that their life is not like what they're portraying it to be, but we're just in our human DNA, it is in us to get our cues from other humans. That's how we become a person. And so it's just as chipping away at the self esteem, just gone. I don't look like that. I don't feel like that. The other thing is over sexualization of young teen, girls and Instagram. You know, there's you have eighteen year olds that are going on my God. I'm really concerned about my fourteen year old cousin, you know. That they're. The need for the attention is shifting the behavior to that. I will get the attention that I need because I need to be relevant. I need to be seen. I need to be her. And so, you know, which is pictures, which we had it's really sad. And as we've talked about before that's that's a conversation for another day, which is one of the many reasons why I think that the the Kardashian clan in general is just a paragon of evil, but that's another conversation. I love to get. That's the that's the start of all of this. They have set the standard that everyone is following an and I think the the the damage that they've had irreparable as long as they can put money in the Bank. Let's go to the phone lines. Again, if you wanna be part of the conversation. Always welcome to your six one seven two five four ten thirty six one seven two four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. That's a toll free number eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. Amanda inland. Amanda, how are you tonight? Okay. Thank you. Danker your guest. I give her my respect for raising these important, social and emotional issues, and the implications that this digital technology is having on our culture, but especially our young people. And I think experience is that we are really in the middle of a title change for the human race with the addition of so much technology and the reliance apartment, and you both very eloquently talked to the addiction issues, and how you know, where where we're now making up to so that we can relax, and I know there's a psychologist on the north shore who is created an app to help people with anxiety, and that may be very very valuable for for folks. But by the same token being exposed to all of the microwave radiation that's produced by. The phone itself by the wifi by the cell towers is also affecting our physio elegy, increasing our anxiety levels. And so on the the the emotional impact of the technology is absolutely huge. And I wanna thank you for raising that side of it because that's really really important that the bigger issue, would you would you all talked about by raising this thing that we're not talking to each other. We're not having conversations with one another anymore where typing to one another or we're talking to the phone it types. And then send it off. You know, we we've lost, you know, like hugging somebody or you know, heaven forbid. Afraid of. And it's something that I think is been raised. We send we send a hugging emoji. Instead, amanda. Exactly. But the fact the fact that this next generation is been trained and intriguing with this type of socialization. It's in the reliant upon the technology. We're really coming upon this trans humanism wage. And so I wanna thank you for trying to serve humanity as as I've known it because the change is happening happening rather rapidly as your no, yeah. And that's the trick. Here. Amanda is has mentioned many times. It's not a matter of demonizing, the technology, it accomplishes a lot of good things. But it's it's a matter of keeping the technology in check in its place. So we don't lose our humanity. I always laugh there's an Jerry Seinfeld line where he says tweeting is is the web's way of saying I was going to call you. But didn't think you were that important. It almost becomes that. In in. You've said something that I talked about with Jani before how many times have walked into a small restaurant. And it's hysterical to me is just hysterical. And how can the kids not reflect this? When you see the parents doing this? I've walked into small restaurants in literally everyone in the restaurant. Literally, everyone the restaurant is looking at the screen. There's not a single person not looking at their phone. Walk into some of these restaurants. And and there's the danger, and it's just a part again as I is Joanie is so nicely. Verbalizing? I say it takes a while for the culture and the sociology to catch up with the technology. But in the meantime, man, this collateral damage. Yeah. It's socially the collateral damage. One thing John mentioned, I think energy say that there wasn't a physiological evidence to support the dangers of visiting. But there is an eye courage. You to look at the work of Deborah Davis. For example. That there wasn't. I just said in that article they were just sandwich out of the brain by Victoria, dumpy. I mean, there are so many people that are literally tracking the physiological impact. And then the other thing that you mentioned a really good point that you made me think of Amanda is the blue light. Also, I mean, we're narrow we have legislation that is just passing because you can't make you can't. I mean, the retinas are literally being damaged, and we do have some legislation that is passing through the school systems now on limiting screen time throughout the day. So we're making a little waves, you know, in their wherever we can Amanda hit the I hate to do this. I gotta take a break in a very very shortly. Because I'm I'm even I am overdo it, but. You you've made some good points in a and I appreciate the call and keep listening and call again. Thanks so much and everybody look into the wifi issue as well. Oh, yes. Thank you. We'll we make sure we touch on that before we go six one seven two five four ten thirty is the number six one seven two five four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty Johnny. You've got people talk, and we have the the phone lines cranked. We just had a call open up only because I let a man to go. We'll take a quick break.

"I kinda think also that that just changes the way that people will vote a little it's how so well, maybe not the way that people will vote, but the outcomes I think it's more likely that lady Gaga Wednesdays than the Oscar because I mean, obviously, she's not up with she's not up against a Coleman. But then once it's. Glenn Close vehicle men and Gaga in the mix. I think you're splitting votes bit more. I don't know. It's probably the most is one of the most interesting races. We'll talk more about in the future. I think it's got to. I think they wanna have Gaga acceptance moment onstage, especially if she's not singing during this this will show. So we will say Gaga, let's go to best actor in a motion picture drama. He nominees are Bradley Cooper stars born Willem Dafoe at eternity gate if you seen that movie. It's also my less, okay. New adding watched it sense it feeling Lucas hedges boy erased Rami Malik bohemian rhapsody and John David Washington for black klansman. So I picked her on me Malik said I. I don't think the Romney Molly has any chance to win the Oscar. But maybe I'm wrong about that. This is very fascinating to me because this naturally should be a place to reward Bradley Cooper for all the fine work. He does in and four stars born, but the bohemian rhapsody trained trucks on and it's very flashy Queen, Freddie, mercury's in international figure Rami Malik is an international figure, and I it just seems seems weirdly obvious. I agree with you. I also picked him. I think some of it is this is the only place that he will be rewarded. I I don't think it went an Oscar. Maybe I'm wrong. I could that change though, could could that change if vice isn't as big a thing as we expect. If Cooper gets best director or best picture, do they decide to give it to Rome is possible. Because it is you know, it is very similar classical transformation. And he's he's good in it. You know, you can't say he's not good. Good. I think he's fine. I think it's a I I mean, it's a lot which is obviously the point. Yeah. That's your channeling Alanis. But there there's something about the physical transformation that is a bit over the top. And. You know, I have a really hard time with these impersonation roles in in general because it just crosses over to SNL. So quickly for me. It's very they're even moments of Amy Adams's performance where she's just doing Kate McKinnon as Lynch Cheney, and it's very funny, and the fact that atom McCabe wrote indirectly that movie means that, you know, you're the film is already telling that lie, but in ABC's not shouldn't be going for that. All now like Myers is in that movie. There's a kind of jokey quality to that movie at times that's kind of one of its flaws. Yeah. I I hear what you're saying. I think people honestly, very popular and people respond to that kind of thing. Sure. I just kind of think that in terms of actor in acting. I I'm always like, I don't know whether this is acting impersonation. So I personally think there's a case to be made that it's not as good as say Bradley Cooper, which is an actual transformation. And then you're like, holy crap. That's Bradley Cooper. That is not what I think of to be Bradley Cooper. And she kind of created that character. From a lot of different living. Crap. There's Eddie Vedder. The composite should have. But anyway to Oscar point this to me seems like a Golden Globes wanting to have some fun liking this actor knowing it's not gonna happen anywhere else. This this is where I'm like the weirdness and the capriciousness of the Golden Globes voting body is going to be on display. And I think that the academy will vote differently. Maybe I'm wrong. No. I think we agree shall we do best screenplay. Yeah. Can interesting category. Yes. So unlike the Oscars, which is normally split into two different screenplay categories one for adapted and one four original this is just five smash together. Here are the five Afonso for Roma.

"And the women are the ones that are getting shit done. So it's like, it's a really it's an interesting movie. I can't say that I loved it. I think you should everybody should see it. I can't say that you will love seeing it. But like, you will think about it for really long time after you saw it and you'll be glad that it existed. You said you left the theatre angry, I left it angry because I don't I don't I'll tell you offline. It's not like that. But much of a spoiler. But I'll tell you I- he the same director did the lobster. I hate it the lobster like, hey. But people love I truly hated it. But there were aspects of that. I was like I love this. It just there were parts of it that we're like chew harsh the things that I loved where the the performances I loved the way that the themes were explored in this kind of way that felt novel. I love the way that the movie looked and I loved the writing, but I felt some sometime parts of it felt like indulgently directed. I will I will say I can I use that to. Dovetail into to one of my two. I'll have what she's had absolutely of the year. The first one is a shadow to all women for whom it takes ten years or more to break into your industry. I think we've seen a lot of that lately. I hate to my own horn. But I will be sending January shooting an indie film that I'm starring in. Which is the first time that I have booked a lead role in a feature film in my life. And I've been Los Angeles for ten years, and I say that because I hesitated even talking about it because it's like, you know, Costa talk about supposed to whatever, but the deals closed now. And it's happening. I'm very excited about it. And it took me a second to realize like I've really been working towards for a very long time. And to listening to sorry about Deborah Davis. Having worked on this screenplay for twenty years as well. As like, we we are very quick to knowledge specially in politics last year. Like, you mentioned Meghan all these women who are like breaking through. And like, oh my God. It's the first time running and look at the success in it's amazing. But there's a lot of women who've been struggling for a long time and who've seen a lot of failure and not even failure necessarily, but just things taking time in. In any industry. It takes time. And we often hear about and focus on stories of women who have a kind of mediate success, and I would like to give shout out in twenty nineteen to the women who are still working diligently in having broken through yet. It takes it takes them goddamn time. Sometimes, and that's that's beautiful. That's all that's I think more common than it is as he somebody breaking through in very quick. And just because you're first hearing about somebody doesn't mean this. They just started working on it. I think that's important thing to remember. If you're saying that struggling to break into something competitive, you might think that oh, you know, I'm just hearing about this person's breaking in this person. You don't know how long and how hard they worked most of them probably work just as hard as you just as long as you the ones that didn't work as hard or as long as you. Got lucky? Yes. Yes. A combination of hard work and luck. And just just remind yourself that people were card, and I also want to do quick shout out to women in the gaming, the feel of gaming and video games and gaming communities. Because I think we don't often acknowledge the fact that that's a really difficult industry to be a not just like in terms of the creators and developers. But also those who game like women who spent a lotta time playing video games. I think that's awesome. I think it's really cool. I think we're all headed towards a world where VR, and gaming is kind of more of our culture, and it can be really difficult for women to continue being in that field despite the kind of rhetoric that.

"So here's mine. I recently saw the favorite which is an artsy fartsy like Oscar bait movie with Emma stone and Rachel Weiss in it. And it is a great sorry. It's not just a soon. Rachel weiss. Also, Livia Coleman, isn't and she's fantastic. And it was co written. The script was written by woman. I'm Deborah Davis. Who wrote the script twenty years ago? So here's my take on the favorite. I saw it earlier this week, and when I Rainer theater theater. Okay. Went and saw a theater because I was like this is a movie about like female on relationships into our. And it also looks really beautiful, and I will say that it is worth seeing at the for like a lot of awards season movies are just sort of like I could've just like watch us on my couch. This is like CNN theater because the set is like opulent and the. Costuming is incredible before are great, and the acting is so good that you almost like wanna see their faces. Enormous because can you like everything they're doing fit to? Thank you. Yes. So definitely SUNA theater. I will say this my critique of it was that it was it felt too long for me. And the at the end I felt very claustrophobic and angry. But after I left the theater, I saw it with with Josh. And we were talking about it. And I realized that like the whole night for like hours, we were talking about this movie like that sort of movie, and I keep thinking about it. Now, I have like a movie hangover from it. It's an incredible film that involves like kind of women jockeying for power using their sexuality. But not in a way that is in any way for the male gaze and watching female sexuality interplay with itself with with other women and not have it be something that that's like. Oh, yeah. Men did this for for men is really really incredible. So passes the Bechtel test it one hundred percent, okay, choices. Character is. She's a force. She's amazing, Emma. Stone is always great alluvia. Coleman is funny. Like, the character doesn't have funny lines. But she deliver. She's just funny like this kind of hapless Queen Anne who doesn't quite not. He's doing the thing that I find really inspiring about it is that the co writer of the screenplay the screenplay is also really clever, and brilliant. There's like some incredible some of the best pussy jokes ever in my. They're very Larry the lead on that. They're very low key like there's one scene where they're talking about healing the queen's wound that is like this is a bus so funny, but Davis is a co writer she I wrote the script twenty years ago and has been working for twenty years to get the shit made. And it finally got made looks great. And she has some of the best actresses in the world involved. And it also is about sort of like the ridiculous of men. What's Jennifer Lawrence is X? I love it. That's how I know. His name off ski, no Nicklaus. Hold nicholas. Hold isn't it and he's fantastic. But he's. Dicusss? He is a ridiculous, man. The men are costumed really they're all very silly..

"Netflix type might be maybe, but those performances to across the board from bunch of faces that I don't know some I do, but so many I don't and they were welcome surprises. Every time they came on screen every Tom waits. Grunt that's a face unfamiliar with. But how about you mentioned meal ticket? Josh that haunted. Face of Harry Mellon, the subtle shifts in his characters performance onstage. And then the desperation the starts to creep in those is offstage as those audiences dwindle. I could watch meal ticket every day. That's how much I love it. I realize the standout one for me along with obviously the fifth one, which I think is a favourite of a lot of people the most romantic the longest of involving the. The first one it's the most tragic too. But I I kinda love all six have you seen meal ticket the today? No, I skip breakfast. I watched a heavy load meal ticket on a daily basis. I mean that one really I'm worried that if you haven't seen it we're going to be forced to watch it now or or might have to take a break and watch it. I'm going to force me to watch it. Let's move on to some more picks and a special guest picker two we're going to hear from our friend, Dave Chen and Aisha Harris, a senior culture writer at the New York Times and former host of the represent podcast. Josh this year was I think really great one for movies. I could easily rattle off a long list of titles that moved and challenged me in ways, I didn't expect and feature brilliant performances. Showcase unique filmmaking perspectives. So it's a really tough call. And maybe it's because I've seen it very recently. But my favorite movie of the year is the favorite everything about this foam has really stuck with me. The brilliant battle of wits and affection between Queen and Sarah and Abigail the incredible performances by Livia Coleman. Rachel vice Emma stone. And I really loved how never quite knew what was going to happen from scene to scene. Get in each moment. Every character is one of Asians and desires were crystal clear pus, it was just plain funny as screenwriters Deborah Davis and twenty McNamara where channeling Oscar Wilde, thanks for all you guys and happy new year film, balding, David Chen here from the coast, and my favorite film of two thousand eighteen is your goose lengthy, Moses, the favourite this film features three of the best performances of the year from.

"You have come close to Abigail. She is. The way I did. Shoot something. That was from the trailer for the favorite the new news film by director at your goes Latham ass-, this is I think your first movie that he didn't write it was written by Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara. The plots from IMDB in early eighteenth century England, a frail Queen end occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah governs, the country in her stead. When a new servant Abigail arrives her charm in deals, her her charm in her to Sarah, so Brit. You actually wrote a piece for slash film dot com about the favorite it was entitled exploring the strange and absurd true history of the favorite will get to kind of the true and false aspects of the story later on. But overall I wanted to hear like, what did you think of this movie? I loved that. I loved it so much that so me and Lindsey romaine. My roommate we we had tickets to go see an early screening here in Austin. And but I got the screener like on a Saturday morning. And I was like I think we have to watch this right now. So we watched it Saturday night that Saturday, and I and then we loved it so much that we went to go see it again Monday in the theater. Which I like I rarely ever see something twice that quickly. And I loved it so much that made me wonder if the spirit early as my favorite movie. This is it's just it's so darkly comedic. And I mean, it is your go slant. Most I think accessible work too. Yeah. Yeah. And I think a lot of that is to like the screenplay which she did not, right. But but he's still there like you still feel him especially in the final scene, which we can talk about later. I really want to. It's just above and beyond being really darkly funny. It's just really interesting story about loneliness and female, friendships and the sort of like performance of nature of. You know, of what friendship is even removed from the court, citing I think that you can sort of relate to, you know, are these people my friends because I have something to offer them. Or are they my friends because they really love me. And I think that there's real love between all of these women in some way. But just by virtue of the setting and the time, I think that there is a lot of artifice, unfortunately to it. And I think alleviate Coleman is extrordinary. And I hope she wins every award if viola Davis doesn't and if lady Gaga beats both of them, I will burn everything down. I just I think it's just so great. It's so fun and weirdly moving and has bunny rabbits, Olivia Colman shoving cake in her face. And I'm probably haven't mentioned this on here before if I have I'm sorry. But there are a few things I enjoy more in film and television than watching women eat. Because it's just it's like. Fuel real. There's a lot of twitch streams you could get into. I could probably host one. I. Yeah. I just I love that. And so watching her courtroom itself. I don't know. And I know that people might not find her particularly relatable because they find the character heightened or you know, lame or doffed in a way. But I think she's just so complex in wonderful. And I found her perhaps the most relatable character for me of any movie. I saw this year like I just really got her loneliness and her sadness and. Percents of humor, which is just wicked. And I don't know. I mean, there's just she just feels like this like. This is in a way, she's just all like want a need, and she's so plain about she. So childish at times that I think it's like, she's this urge that everyone has like this, insecurity that we don't voice the way that it really feels inside. And I just I love it and the more I'm talking about in other wearing like, maybe this really isn't. I mean, this is in my top three of the year at least. I really really enjoy this movie. But just kind of curious what you thought this movie. Would you think of a favorite? Well, Dave, I guess you could say my thoughts are best summed up. Oh my God. In the form of a Limerick. The first one was good this pretty good..

He is the man who brought you the lobster and the killing of a sacred deer. And and people are comparing it to all About Eve. Oh, interesting. Yeah. Sure. Andrzej new so true Lopa, alienated affections? Yeah. Power hungry. Fashion as days buckle up. It's going to be a bumpy ride. The minks. Who wants to weigh in on the favorite? It was delicious. I actually saw this one as a double header with bohemian rhapsody. Ooh. And that was a fun day for me because it was both of them were kind of delicious, you know, in their own ways, very different movies. Of course. But I thought it was it's be useful to look at. It's absolutely ravishing. You know, it's all takes place at Kensington Palace is the eighteenth century. So there's tapestries and rabbits. And men and makeup and rate gowns, and all of that flouncy frippery is there and fun to look at three absolutely stellar performances from these women, I mean, it's very much on. But with three of them for typically, a nice thing for Emma stone. I. Released to she's the only one who's not British or self and is and has to do the accent. And I thought she did a good job as you pull it off. I thought she did this is not a Kevin Costner situation. No, Oh, I I don't don't think. think. So I mean. I will. I will defer to my friends across the pond. But you know, I thought it was a very respectable turn. It's there's nothing was this accents. I hate it. I just Libya Coleman, you know, with that off with their head to. She is really. And I honestly Rachel vise. And it's funny because Rachel is has been in all of land, Moses, movies and. She's a fat the characters fascinating character. And she gives her all sorts of interesting shadings. It's a cynical movie about power and manipulation. It has present day echoes with phony patriotism and a ruler who is prone to flattery and peaks fits fits peak. And so there's lots of interesting kind of allegorical echoes there that I think are worth worth delegating. I'm not I thought it was fun. I mean, it's not. You know, it's it's it's not great. Great great. But I thought it it's a very smart with Lanta, Moses other movies. I felt that he got too weird for his own good. It was on. And this is more controlled in lobster and at particularly killing here left. You thinking? Yeah. They put me off. They really needed me. But this he's working with a script by somebody else's Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara. And I think that's to his benefit. Because now his vision is being sort of tamed short by those parameters. And I think that's great. I think that works. Well, and it's interesting because I did a little reading on Queen Anne about you know, obviously, it's going to send you to compete in. And honestly, even as it's it's a crazy movie. But a lot of this stuff is grounded in fact about these relationship Sarah Churchill Abigail hill, really did supplant Sarah Churchill in the affections of the Queen. They really were cousins. Yeah. And they did and there were letters. I mean, a lot of the details in the movie were true. I do they do speculate. A lot about the depth and passion of the relationships, but the finish interesting. Yeah. That's the fun through those those moments in history. You know, thought it was a lot of fun. I liked the first two-thirds of especially. It has these backbiting contemporary touches, especially there's a dancing court where the men are all freaked up in the ladies are dancing, and they do this contemporary kind of what to see which is just out of no. It's great a great fun. Even some bits of dialogue to do that. Yeah. Very vulgar just want. Everybody to know. It is a nasty vulgar ri-, bald revolved body naughty movie. But it has a lot of fun in kind of done in a bitingly playful time how after two thirds of that. I got tired did. Yeah. And the ending left a lot of people that I watched with at middle say what the hell was that?.

The favourite at times suggests a sly historical riff on all About Eve, only with more swear words and sexual powerplays. Your sympathies are forever being tugged this way, and that and Robbie Ryan cinematography brilliantly captures that sense of flux as he sends the camera hurtling from one end of the queen's chamber to the other for all the gilded furnishings of field. Crumby production design and sandy Powell's gorgeous, costumes. The favourite doesn't just feel sumptuous. It feels gloriously alive. There are a few men hovering on the periphery like Sarah's political nemesis Harley played by nNcholas Holt who tries to turn Abigail into an ally. But the pleasure of the movie comes from watching these three remarkable women. They're escalating stakes and startling reversals of fortune. Every one of them turns out to be more complex and surprising than you. Might think as cold blooded as vices Sarah is there's something admirable about her. Brutal. Honesty, which she claims is a sign of her genuine devotion to the Queen stone. By contrast is a mercurial delight beneath her, warm, smile and spirited demeanor. Her Abigail turns out to be every bit as wiliest, Sarah and arguably even more calculating as for Libya Coleman who will soon succeed Claire Foy as Elizabeth the second on the Netflix series. The crown her performance here is nothing short of a stonning. Her aunt is by turns pitiful, and majestic beautiful and grotesque a childlike creature who has endured several lifetimes worth of tragedy.
