He is a member of the Writers Guild of America the directors guild America and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences welcome can an Ron what I'd like to welcome uh today my friend Ron Maxwell who has come here to Lexington from his lovely home in Flint Hill Virginia on top of the mountain in Rapahannock County and Ron Welcome. It's great to have you great to be with you as all of you know Ron Maxwell in the the writer and director of the movies Gettysburg Gods and generals and copperhead and what I'd like to do ron is start off by asking you have you always been interested in history yes I guess so I can give my father the blame or the credit for that because when before I could read my father would read my brother Night Asleep with and Merrily as memories are factories Vanity Fair and Charles Dickens at the time I thought it was now in retrospect would you called child abuse just kidding but I think you know ah the the love of stories and characters and literature got really imbued and made a very early age so that by the time I I learned to read and write which is around first grade are immediately you just segue into reading myself and before long as a reading fiction and literature and history and a great deal more than in fact I was being offered in in the classroom. Yeah a graduate of the New York University School of film and I'd like to ask you when you went to new NYU and wanted to study film Did you ever have in mind at some time you would do two films on historical subjects probably the answer is yes I had been an undergraduate theater major and from my whole Youth I was a you know a again from a very early age writing and directing plays in the garage in my living room before I had any notion of career or or that this would be commitment it was just something I always dead and I remember when I was eleven or twelve I grew up in northern New Jersey and we were in the the the broadcast area of the New York City big broadcast channels crisis long long before cable television this is all broadcast television and one of the channels broadcast A BBC production called an age of kings black and white but there were Shakespeare's histories some his daughter from ooh Richard the two yeah through Richard Three all Henry's in between and and it's just captivated and it was a a window into a world that I didn't know it previously had existed I mean I had been exposed Shakespeare to effects my father but you know reading it looking at it on the page is different than seeing it produced and with great Eliza take spearing actors and such a profound impression on me that soon thereafter because I had already been writing plays at eleven twelve thirteen at around thirteen fourteen I wrote researched and wrote a play in blank verse and Mba Pentameter Called Charles I and I had as my source of his history collection we had the old books a my my father had these great collections of elegantly around the books of the history of England history of France and so I was always reading them already and and Charles I gravitated to me and of course we remember his last party words which are also the last words in my play before he's executed Charleston I says I go from corruptible to an incorruptible crown uh-huh and then I produced it then I got money from the student council and from the the the Mustang Band Fund we had a band that was world renowned it would go to the Rose Bowl every and I actually raised a few hundred dollars and we produced it on stage and then the following year I wrote another play in blank verse Amber Tamiko Henry the third which so so I I managed to find some kings and Shakespeare hadn't touched that had and that to raise money and and you know ironically the my high school I tended to that would have been my sophomore year in high school some the first play was made Freshman Year in high school that was Charles I in my sophomore year of high school is when I wrote and produced and directed the Henry the third and ironically there was no theater program I am in my high school I mean can you believe this yeah so there I was my life was all about theater and I was doing the academics I was kind of an honor roll student but not even a class in in dramatics as I have to invent it so sometimes you know necessity is the mother of invention yes indeed so visit I share the background with you so you understand that when I applied to college and I I I I was happily accepted at the universities I applied to and I decided to go to NYU because it gave me a full tuition scholarship and my folks were working class and they made a big difference yeah and it turned out that they had a very good theater program Ram and I spent my four years as an undergraduate constantly in costumes and makeup and doing theater yeah Joshua do play on replay and and check off and it was one of wonderful undergraduate theater program and I by that time in my life I thought well I'm number one and actor also directing also writing but it was the whole thing to me and I had always done it I didn't know anything else so that by the time I finished my junior year I was cast as hamlet and I'd cells nineteen when I played hamlet and I don't think I've ever had so much fun and life I knew the whole play and I remember in those days we had the reel to reel tape recorders and I had a little reel to reel tape recorder that I kept up to learn the lines yeah and to jam him into my head and they're the character of hamlet just the character alone there are has more words than the entire Scottish play of Shakespeare this evening of the magnitude of it where and and that that so I'm finally getting around to answer your question because at one of those performances Jay Hester who was the president of New York University remember that was in uptown campus which I attended and there was a downtown campus which is the one we think about today at Washington Square I'm back in the sixties When I was in undergraduate it was a beautiful uptown campus where they had the hall of fame for Great Americans a traditional quad with the with the the romanesque buildings and and the Georgian buildings that since since the decades since has been sold I think the two Bronx Community College but anyway the present swath performance he came backstage afterwards and he said you belong and the new school the arts they were just forming a founding a graduate program called the School of the arts so I said fine and so with his recommendation I went down to see the new dean of the theater program which is what I expected to apply to and when I was sitting there waiting for that interview there was a poster on the wall in the room was down on Washington square announcing the new graduate school in the film and Television Yeah and I thought with the arrogance of Youth I know everything there is Oh about acting I'd been acting my whole life I was nineteen but my whole life I'd been acting Shakespeare and everything else and I thought what I really WANNA learn how to do is make movies and so I did the interview but I immediately applied for the film school instead of the acting program and I got the letter from the president of the versity and I was accepted with scholarship into graduate school film and so I didn't realize in the moment can't that I was making back into a major life decision I didn't think I was leaving acting behind and goings emotion but in but in effect that's what I did unknowingly I've hardly he ever acted since it's been my whole life from that moment from nineteen seventy has been about learning how to make movies it was a two year program at the time graduate yeah now now I it's a three year program then it was a two year program and my life took a turn and ever since I've been making movies and sometimes with sadness I remember the wonderful how wonderful it is to be the actor but what it did give me and what has continued to provide me is a an understand ending appreciation and sympathy for what the actor does Yeah Yeah having been trained in the method of Stanislavsky method practicing being done it myself I understand what an actor does and so it's given me a a a tool a very useful I think essential tool to work in the of movies that I make wow you know it's interesting We just completed a film on Abraham Lincoln Illinois and in that film you watch Lincoln try to educate himself and he has a friend named Jack Kelso who lives in new Salem Illinois who lends him books by The Shakespeare plays Robert Burns among others and the these are the books that he reads and notice in in that film and his life Lincoln becomes interested in history and so did you and you your window into it from what you're saying is reading Shakespeare you said that last night by the way folks he ron delivered a stunning address to the Kentucky Civil War Roundtable last night to a he you just crowd and he went over some of this last night and honestly your address last night ron was spectacular and but you mentioned Shakespeare then too and the the history plays of Shakespeare because Shakespeare does take you to the site it and he doesn't editorialize he takes you to the story and you get in this story and I can see how Shakespeare our influences people and influenced you well their influences that you I can understand better now after decades of making movies you see in the moment not I don't think I wasn't self consciously thinking of Shakespeare or or self-consciously for Richard Wagner Russia or the plays of Sophocles and the Greeks but looking back you understand how it shapes you in because in many ways for instance you there's a humility that you absorb even if you're not conscious of it now now I can look back and understand it because when you've read the place of the ancient Greeks when you've read the plays of the renaissance of of the of the enlightenment of the restoration period of of of the Western allegation of the the canonise sometimes called moliere racine in France Shakespeare Congress the other authors in the English language you realize you're in a stream you're not alone right you're you're in a long stream of thousands of years of fellow humans who are grappling with the big mysteries of life grappling with the human condition right and and and Shakespeare in particular of course no one talks like that no one talk that way then when he wrote in ruin talks that way now but this is part of power because he puts the English language into poetry all of those plays are set in blank verse in IAMBIC pentameter their their their poems their epic poems that then become enlivened on a stage by a -CCOMPLISH trained actors who make it sound conversational right but in fact it's poetry so it's elevated language and I think that's an immense part of the our Ju- just think of any any verse of any of the plays of this Scottish play Julius Caesar Hamlet Romeo and Juliet and take the out of it and the poetry out of it the power is diffused goes away so so it's actually the language of Shakespeare that whole olds the power like a uranium atom and that that that then it gets translated by by great acting in great directing for an audience and so having imbued that having understood that I I made a decision conscious decision and the and the AH in particular in Gettysburg and Gods and generals to work in the epic form Arabic form which is as old as the Greeks so some critics I and I'm not being churlish if you're making movies you should be open criticism and I am some six people didn't talk that way civil war and people don't talk that way now and they missed the point they missed the point we're working in epic style everything is real it's emotionally real just like it's absolutely emotionally real in Shakespeare play where gripped with emotion we understand that the the scene between lady Macbeth in Macbeth when she's encouraging him to murder Duncan that is a powerful thing we get it we understand those impulses those deep primordial human instincts to do that kind of human destruction because of vanity because of ambition of what we want whatever the driving Ursus so it's it's it's based it's derived it's moving and emotion but it's rendered through this more formal thing so the same thing in Gods and generals and Gettysburg because of this you're you're training yourself training to have been interested in history a longtime when did you first consider hitter doing a film like Gettysburg which is your first civil war film well the going back to the early days.

"We had a nice fat. Yeah my production designer had a great time making that model and and he at the end of this conversation he starts telling me about how the earth is flat and i just was like my brain was. I couldn't even register what he was saying. Obviously was joking right and then he wasn't choking what is happening and i really. I'd never heard of it because i didn't know it was a thing yet you know so he turns around and he says to me is park the car from my apartment. He looks at me and he says exactly what nathaniel says which is basically look. Listen i get it. You're exactly where i was a year ago. All you have to do is google it google it. Just is keep googling. It's all there. It's undeniable if you just google deep enough and i was like thank you sir out in a movie yeah so i knew i wanted one of the characters to be aflutter that was sort of the beginning of the conspiracy theory thing and then once we were trying to figure out the con what would a story be that would make some artifact more valuable that came in you know it just kind of organically manically emerged from there yeah but it has this great humanity to it in the way you treat everybody the way the actors perform the parts just the way the characters interact with each other and i think it's really a it's a it speaks to your sensibility in your the humanity of your your body of of work is expressed here the same way it's the same thing i remember loving about hump day and all that stuff in between like you've brought it to the t._v. Work you do as well how it expands into this bigger kind of you know meditation on the moment we're in but in a way that's really loving of all the people involved. I thought it was just a lovely kinda. It's a lovely treatment and way of thinking about these things well. Thanks yeah. I definitely as a northerner coming to the south. I didn't want to condescend to southerners. I also didn't want to represent you know the south in authentically so that was something i was very concerned about and even the folks who i consider the wrong minded okay individuals in this movie i i wanted to humanize them. I wanted everybody to feel like real humans and not just nope. Nobody was to be a cardboard cutout out or or a cartoon or you know sort of two dimensional. I wanted everybody to feel real. Is that great moment. When you know the kids pop up at the they've been taken and <hes> you know and mal says oh you're those your those guys marks ideas. I remember he was marks idea and i just i i. I love it so much. I think it's so smart to me. It felt like it immediately just yeah it humanizes them it just makes them and so and and they're they're trying so hard to be toughened bullies but just like everything just goes to his sort of you know philosophical approach on on his show that i've always loved which is he's basically talking to everyone with the the fundamental unspoken thing is everyone is just a person and i'm going to get to know the person exactly and your movie does the same thing in a way that in probably ugly part of where you guys link up and the this part aware what you're illustrating in the stop and your shared journey. It's cold court thing. It looks like we're winding down but totally great to talk to you about this. Thanks thanks for doing this. Shelton ladies ladies and gentlemen. Thanks guys.

"Every now. And then you need your jets Jovan. I understand that. No one can have a hill jets track. See mid-nineties? Did you see I didn't see it? But he just looked so cool now, he just became cool. He's so listen to interview every photo, and it was really good because the G Q or the was video. I don't know where it goes. I listened to him Bill Simmons podcast was a really good interview. It was really DJ directors guild America's hot cast. And he was talking about how he's made the transition how when he first started out. Everybody was calling him. Like, oh, he's just the comedy silly boy, and he never wanted to be that and he's had to like slowly transit. And I think he's done that you don't really see him as just funny anymore. Yeah. Whole transition. He was like actor was always a path to director. He was always in. My mind was always a path to director Google. That's the difference. I've talked about how different groups of people will take the comedy mantle for a while. So it's like it was will Ferrell's group for a bit Nadan McKay. And then the set appetite grew and Seth Rogan and all of them. But this throw gin Jona hill James Franco group, they're different from everybody else. Because there they took this frigging town by storm on every level. They're writing their directing they're doing so much getting nominated for Oscar. Rip. And I'm not saying this as an absolute. But I would say will Ferrell's group is a bunch of comedians and actors, which is fine. And for the most part that's kind of the path that they stayed on. There was director Adam McKay that they stayed with. And maybe they would write their stuff here and there, but most of them Chris Parnell stuff like that stuck to the acting while Franco's group, just DEA everything. And they're they're the next level. They're about to take over. I think a new realm of comedy as apoptosis group. Expands more. Yeah. I still haven't seen disaster artists. Billy plan. Yeah. Have you seen the room though? Like have you seen the I know I've never watched the whole thing. And I did like a secession. We did a back to back actually was like, I think it might be the way to do it in my honest opinion because. We'll see we'll also it is it is so bad. But it's not one of those horrible. Like, you see the madness within you see all that in. So it's kind of fascinating to see all the madness within. So when you see it again, I I don't know. I really liked it that way because you were just like oh that is. Oh my God. That's exactly how that happened. Oh, that makes perfect sense. As to why it was such a weird read that he did have you gone back to Bander snatch at all as up. I did. I went back and tried to watch it. But you can't watch TV for my TV. Oh, wow. Mom, we'll help you figure that out. Well, have you figured it? Do you want to watch the old Mary Poppins, Steve before you watch him new Mary Poppins because we'll help you figure that out you put them on at the same time. They shouldn't do that. At the same time, really hard to focus on one of the storylines after the second lion. Dr. Affection.

"Marvel studios. Black Panther showed Hollywood changing, it was always much more than just another superhero film. We don't know if it will be nominated at the Academy Awards voting for Oscar nominations opens this week. That was Vincent Dowd. Well, nowadays, it's getting harder to distinguish between the two formats that will be covered by the Golden Globes, TV and film as the best acting, directing and screenwriting talent seems to make no distinction between the big screen and the smaller screen when it comes to taking on work. Well to discuss some of the favorites for tonight's Golden Globes. And why you might be hearing a lot more about them as award season continues right up to next month's Oscars ceremony. We're joined in our London studio by the British entertainment writer, Emma, Bullimore, Emma. Welcome. So let's discuss I how film and TV are beginning to overlap. What's driving that? Well, it's interesting look at the nominees list. Hugh Grant, Julia Roberts, Amy Adams. These are film stars there will nominated for TV categories. It's really starting to change. Netflix started this. I think it's made TV cool again and actually at a time where it's very expensive to go to the cinema and your option seemed to be big blockbusters which. Are in front of a green screen or little nashvillehomes that no one is actually going to see is very tempting for these great actors to think if I do something on TV, a it's cool again be there's some cachet, and I actually get to get into some really interesting material. So we're seeing a real shift and as a critic, how do you respond to this change? I think it's really exciting, and it's also really exciting for awards ceremonies because it tends to be the films are films that were released. I mean, some of them haven't even been released here yet and some of them were only released a week ago or something so people don't feel as engage whereas the things up for TV awards bodyguard killing eve, very scandal off things we've been talking about for ages. Let's get to some of the recommendations that you have in that our panel might have let's start with TV. Let's talk about a BBC film last year about a disgraced politician in the nineteen seventies, Jeremy Thorpe, the film is called a very English scandal or the TV program. Let's hear a bit more of the trailer for that before you tell us more about it. Liberal. Norman. Youngest man to lead the party. More than a century. Sure. Very dramatic. This is such an exciting coming together of British talents. You got Russell t Davis is such a fantastic writer and Hugh Grant who versus audience is a fall in love with his Iran Qatar actually getting to show that he can properly act, and this is fantastic performance from him with Ben Wishaw who was so celebrated as well. And I really hope it does. Well, tonight, he Hugh Grant is really doing some of the best stuff of his career. Isn't it? I've got I have to admit I loved him in Paddington to. He was fantastic. He was so willing to take care of himself. It's it's really great. Because he you know, he is a good actor, but he got causing this or four-page card type role. And now, it's really nice to see him blossom. Okay. Well, let's bring our guests in here. We have to bring Candace Allen in particular. You're still a member of the directors guild America. You get the tapes for all the nominated films. What's what's really impressed? You this season? Well, the the diversity not just the diversity in in the films like the big films like black Black Panther and so forth. But the. The the the smaller diversities in you know, the favorite. I mean who would have thought I mean, it's just unbelievable. I don't think it's going to win the Golden Globes because it's a bit too edgy widows, Cold War. I mean, there is just it's it's an interesting time. It's an interesting time when MS talking about in terms of the net the net flicks influence on what's going on in the industry. It's just blasted it open now. And there is there is still a place for going to spend all of that money to go and see certain things on the big screen. I mean, I think Rama for example. It's a net flix film. But to see the beauty of it, you need to be on a big screen, but other things like spider verse you really need to be immersed in it. And so that is a. I think the big screen is like books. There's a point where they think that it's not there. It's you're not going to need them anymore. But they come back because people want that particular experience in getting back to the Golden Globes in terms of film. I suspect that a stars born is going to to it's it's the fourth incarnation of this story people like love it in Hollywood, Bradley Cooper, did a wonderful job. I I was really impressed particularly with a backstage stuff really visceral. But it's fairly conservative. I'm upset that widows didn't get any love whatsoever from people because it's so edgy the favorite. I don't think is going to win. They green book, which again is a very conservative take on on interracial relations that gets a lot of love, you know, the the Golden Globes it's a big party and it's important for. The impetus. But in terms of really critical of evaluation of of what cinema is that's not what you go to the Golden Globes. It's less stuff. Isn't it? It's more of an industry party, and you get Emily blunt nominated for Mary Poppins bohemian rhapsody is there. It's it's allows you if you're not into really criticizing films, and almost pretentious about it. You can have a good time at the Golden Globes people that you recognize will be there. It's film and telly says very accessible in a way that some of the other all ceremonies aren't just just briefly. I wonder are you seeing a net. Flicks. Productions are they getting the same number of awards has the industry has the awards industry really pivoted to to to hand out Oscars and things at the to the same at the same rate to those kinds of productions. Yeah, it took a while. And it was really the crown that saw that that shift. They really wanted. They were very popular. But they wanted that cash. They wanted that gold standard of proper awards Baptist Globes. And now they're starting to get it. But what is interesting is that bodyguard will be there as a Netflix original, even though we know as as a BBC show they into all these car production. So they're taking credit for certain shows. We would not classes Netflix show. So interesting times. Okay, Paul assist and briefly with you. What would what would be your quick pick film? What what's piqued your interest? The one that I would really like to see just at least get noticed is is vice I think, it's such a brilliant idea because Cheney was such a key figure sort of half in the shadows in the Bush presidency. It would really be good to see. See him portrayed up there in this slightly comedy way. Okay. Fantastic. Well, thank you to all of my guests. Emma, Bullimore Kansas Allen and Paul Melly were just coming up to the end of the hour on weekends on the BBC World Service..

"So there's a lot. I mean, that's a big. I mean, forty days is a good schedule for this movie. But it was still a lot of things to do. So as much as I prepared, you know, like as much as as you ready to go and have things prepared as much as possible is always these one simple seeings surprise you. Like, I got this figured out. We worry about this. We'll just keep moving. And it's always this one little scene in it is one of those things with with film. No matter what no matter what how much you prepared is always the smaller thing. So I think it was mostly the schedule in some of the scenes within the schedule that probably surprised me most of. All right. I think we have time for one more question yester. Yeah. I feel like is is a really good place right now, I feel like you know, like one of the films. I love love Cooley high seventies right now at that time Michael shelters actually from my hometown directed that movie. Gordon parks in the seventies. There was a lot of there was specific filmmakers, but then there was a lot of after non African Americans direct in a lot of films of with African American starring in some of that was the case in the nineties as well. And there's always these pockets where you see these films, and then those films go away, but now is a little different. Now, think reason why I think television has a lot to do with personally in terms of there's more African American women more women, directing there's more African American men, directing there's more African American Latino and white non white show runners. So now, the vision is not actually white individuals controlling those visions, they are actually visionaries who are women. In African American so within that you have these authentic voices and different voices. And I think the audience really need that in some many of these shows are very successful Mideast films are so which will continue to make other projects and contained to make other films. So I think that's the difference between the seventies in some of the films have made in the nineties. So that's the difference in. I'm just glad to have this film at at the same time. Right. Well, thank you more time. Thank you made a beautiful beautiful movie. And and I think he made a movie that does so much for all of us as people and as directors it really challenged all of us.
