"L Toro has really done that his entire career for the house. He has. And I think that was, you know, maybe a breakthrough film or him in terms of awareness for a lot of people. It was and how he perfected it. So PAN's labyrinth got my vote. Okay. So I think we're at your number four choices that right? And we've already touched on it. Mahone dry versus Donnie Darko, very boring reason here, I know Donnie, Darko better. I've thought about it more. I liked Mahal drive when it came out. But one of these where I was either had a different vantage point or behind the curve. I haven't seen whole drive sense. So you've only seen it once. So chances are if I watched it again, I'd flip this vote. But I can only go with what I know. Yeah. It's one of those movies that I may not feel as strongly about it. If I didn't watch it a second time a week after I saw the first time that crystallized so much for me. And then over the years, I've watched it at least a few other times because it was part of my movies about movies class at the Graham school here at the Chicago a few years back. My number three toughest choice in this gets back to your beloved animation. Josh. Wally which I think is my second favorite. I think I have it ranks second among all of Pixar's films, or it's at least in the top five going up against Pedro Almaden Vars, talked to her and again, tough choice for a reason it's pretty much a coin toss. But when I think back to the impact talked to her head on be when I saw it actually is part of our Alydar marathon on film spotting many many years ago before you joined the show Josh that was my best picture of that marathon. And the reality is when I'm making these tough choices. Sometimes I do just ask myself, which one would I wanna watch right now if I could rewatch one of those films. I may choose the beginning of Wally. But when you factor in the entire film. I'd really rather go back into that colorful melodramatic world development over that's fair. And I liked that criteria. Sometimes I lean on that myself. I didn't quite think about it that way in this match up which was difficult for me. I love Elmont Ovar talked to her yet definitely up there as. As one of his better films. But Wally brings me back to the Pixar question that I did struggle with. It's interesting that we had a poll question last year where we asked listeners which Pixar films should be the highest seeded in this year's madness Turney and while he is what they chose. Yeah. So that's why you got that one. So we did I I went with Wally, and there's maybe a little recency bias here too. Because I've been thinking about it quick plug. I'm going to be doing the Ebert interruptus event again at the conference of world affairs at the university of Colorado boulder that's coming up in April will be my third year doing it. We're actually doing while e this is the event that Roger Ebert establish many many years ago where you go through a film frame by frame literally frame by frame anyone who attends can shout. Stop. And they make an observation ask a question. And so the first year I did Rushmore second year..

Josh going with ratatouille, and I'm going with in Bruges in that first round match up. My number three, easiest choice was David. Lynch's Mulholland Drive over the winner of the new cult canon plan. Donnie, Darko Donnie Darko beat out American psycho. We heard from Chris Massa minute Massa who said Donnie Darko is an amazing movie. But American psycho is funnier scarier stranger and has more to say in our prison conversations about billionaires elitism and toxic masculinity. American psycho feels like it should be required viewing. Here's Barbara intrigue. Germany dreer trickling with a lot of Germans sorry. I just wanted to continue the theme. Donnie, Darko was a special experience for me. I never seen anything like it before it felt like my first Baroni movie experience. I actually got back at age twenty and every time I reworked it. There's something new to discover though, of course, the soundtrack American psycho is cult mad world from Donnie Darko will always give me the chills Jonathan Anderson chimes in all I'm going to say is if you vote Donnie Darko, you're never going to get a reservation at Dorsey. Well, played Jonathan Donnie Darko did take down Patrick Bateman close. Fifty five percent to forty five percent.

Like, I think some people really like the fact that it's not. So you know that crass, but like I love swearing, but there's something about it not being a part of the equation that makes it a little bit comforting in some way. Like, I don't know. It's interesting. Yes. Sometimes it's funny. I will just a nude as much as I do. But I do when we're recording stuff, you should know. I will just because it fits so.

Confuses to what the was generally recognize Cole. Classic great all around film. I was just wondering you what's keep doing? What you're doing guys hanging? These. Should hang up talks, dude. It's funny. 'cause Donnie Darko you're not the first Donnie Darko fan boy to come at me for saying that it was just okay. Look, it's not that. I don't like Donnie Darko. I thought it was good. It's it's a solid movie. It was cool. It's whatever, but I tend to run a little lower than most people do on the depression totem pole already or like the fucking darkness totem pole. I don't need Donnie to get me down in the dumps. I kinda live down there naturally. So therefore, I dug the movie I liked it. I enjoyed it. I get it. But it was just okay for me. It didn't like change my whole perspective on shit. It's just one of those movies. Like, I felt an obligation to watch it. Because of exactly what you spoke to its cult status. And I definitely saw the reasoning for its Colt success when I watched it, and I love that fucking song. Mad mad world or whatever. But I'm not sucking Donnie Darko dick to save the festival. I'm not. So I I don't I don't I don't know. Donnie, Darko people why you feel the need to defend your boy. Just you like the movie, it's for you. You know? It's just okay. To me.

"Has good taste in music. Apparently, I'm gonna answer joke there. And I liked joy division reminds me of Donnie Darko. I don't know why. Yeah. Let's go to Mark in Phoenix. Mark you're up next on coast. Hi, how's everybody doing this evening? And I have a question for you related to the Mark of the beast in revelation, and I know you talked about that a little bit earlier. I kind of see that as a unique identifier that's going to prevent people from stealing identities and things like that. And when I was younger and brought up in church where I was always told that you had to fear that and all that kind of stuff, but you're talking about earlier how we're going to start accepting all these things I can see almost bandit. So their identity can be stolen. And then I I guess my question is my main question is that then also being what could be utilized to give people are soaring to control. Robot? Well, I'll give you my personal take on the market because I've thought about this quite a lot over the years. And I don't think that the Mark of the beast is a literal thing, I think the the true meaning of the market the beast is. There are certain people that accept the material world as the only reality and don't believe in the spiritual side of life at all. And they completely reject the spiritual side of reality that I think is the Mark of the beast, right? Some people have the quote unquote, Mark of the beast, which is a a metaphorical way of talking about these things it's similar to the devil card in the tarot, which represents complete bondage to the material world. And so in that metaphorical sense. I think that yes. I mean, you know, you have to have the quote, unquote, Mark of the beast to for instance, see human beings as numbers, or as something to be used at associated Pathak way, you know, whereas people who are more sensitive spiritual would would never feel that way. So that's that's my personal take on it before it gets to the next call. I remember the first time that I had read a pop culture reference to this was that again that we would have a chip inserted into our thumb for as an ATM card, and that would be the Mark right? And it just it it made me think. But then again, just like any any generation that we've had in the past will always interpreted into their own modern context, whatever it is at that point in time. Yeah, I sometimes wondered if blockchain is the Mark of the beast. That's next. Well done. Well, said okay. Let me let's go to Brian in San Diego. Brian really quick before our break, you're up next on coast. Okay. He Jimmy Jason interesting. You're talking about the blockchain because in in the trans humanism part of things of avoiding a chip with the buyer sell. Well, you were talking a little bit about currency being controlled having the currency controlled. I know of the new technology other than crypto currency. That cannot be controlled. There's no centralized point. There's no blockchain or, you know, ledger involved and in the trans transfer of and it's called cloud coin, and you can go to YouTube and check it out. But if you know, there's no cloud coin involved. I mean, there's no blockchain involved it's called Rada. Instead, it's like a cloud of computers that detect if the cloud coins is authentic, and it doesn't in a millisecond. Okay. But what's the advantage to it Brian? Well, the advantage is it it solve all the problems of bitcoin. Bitcoin is not scalable, bitcoin is not quantum computer safe at all in two minutes, a quantum computer can hack bitcoin, you will find this to be true. And people won't don't wanna believe. But it's true. What what quantum computer is running on this planet right now that could do it. You're you're talking about theoretically in the future. Yes. I am talking about theoretically. But the inventor of cloud coin, Sean Worthington. He's a computer scientist in college and she Chico California. He's the one explaining these things and he's. It's his reputation, you know, explaining these things. So I tend to believe a computer scientist who explains this. But yeah, the the main thing bitcoin is not scalable, and you do have mining involved club pointers. No mining. Okay. I wanted to make said that Jason. So 'cause you talked about, you know, people getting chipped. And then, you know, having people mind for them. But the the Rada is gonna be amazing. All right. I'll look I'll look into Brian that the the entire crypto world which were all being forced into examining at some point. You know, what it is and trying to figure out what what crypto means for our future. What I do enjoy about the blockchain is as the security of it. And also being completely decentralized, and and trying to take certain control out of it where it's not how how do I wanna say this correctly. It's not somebody else making the decisions the market makes its own decisions. And it's safe and secure and runs automatically. Yeah. I mean, I spent a lot of time studying blockchain was over in Europe, you know, meeting I was over in Germany and Berlin meeting big blockchain players in London. Like this. And from talking to some of the big heads in that world. I'll give you my general feeling about it, which is that we're like like ninety seven for the web where you know, if you remember if you were around when the web happened and everyone said everything's going to be on the internet. And then they would ask they would ask you what what's the internet? And no one would be able to actually tell you what it was. That's where we're at with blockchain where we just went through this big hype cycle. And then a a, you know, a drawback, well, let me jump in right there. We need to take a break, but we're gonna finish this blockchain question when we come back. This is Costa coast AM. I'm your host Jimmy church with author. Jason Lou stay with us..

"But yeah, I do. You feel like there's sort of that, you know, death of the author conceit going on here where once you make a product, it's kind of out of your hands now. And sometimes it's up to the critics of the audiences to interpret it for themselves. And even when it's a film that's like well, liked by some people like a mother. For example, I actually quite like that film until they're in our our knock. You started talking and I was like, okay, I like it a lot less now that you keep hammering it in that it's a bible allegory, I get it. I get it in there. In there to be had like I feel like I, I don't want that to be spelled out. Yeah, like I knew I saw Shane crews. Was that film whatever color de remember, Chris upstream coming color? Yes, I saw the film and I, I kind of enjoyed it. And then there was this QNA with Jeff Goldsmith after the film were basically he got shink to basically explain everything about the movie all the, you know, the the, the, the intentions and I, it kind of totally ruined it for me. It's almost it's almost like, do either of you see Donnie Darko the director's cut. Yes. Yeah. And I was paying Donnie Darko Bullock that film kind of like is like, oh, here's what I was going for like, no, it was better when we were interpreting you're going for I, I agree with that hundred percent. I remember I love Donny Darko when it came out and that directors cut literally scenes where there's like text up on the screen, explaining what's happening. And it was like, why is this in years is ruining the movie. I was so excited for that. I would still living in Boston. I in Natick and I traveled to Boston to this theater that head like the, you know, one of the early premiers of it now. So exciting. It's so bummed walking. But yeah. Okay. Anyways, let's move on to our next story in that is for this joker movie that we've been talking a lot about walking Phoenix the first, I guess, screen test of him in the full clown makeup has hit.

"Jason the director's cut i just think that actually that's a worse film even though i haven't seen that cut i think right they'll bother that thematically i am not i think that actually takes away from something that could be such a profound examination of tina angst like adams said earlier you know um in its sets it up so well in in that the actual version where you've got like dukakis versus bush in 88 right and it's like the were out of reagan's america were prosperous everything is going good and you've got maggie jalen hall who's kind of like the bleedingheart liberal who's going to go to harvard and she's going to vote for dukakis in there discussing about whether or not there's enough funding in the government to pay for all the things that do caucuses saying so there's this reeling zeid about the future and donnie doesn't have any way to deal with this everybody else in the town seems to have a way to deal with this you know you've got the parents that have their way you've got the the mother whose obsessed with the dance troupe that's got her way you've got swayze who's got his wave with his pop psychology shit so there that you'll measures of his or a yeah i mean it it it and to be honest i mean there's actually a lot of stuff in today's culture that i think really fits with this but they're the obsessive they're the ones that they're rejecting the trauma of the historical moment there refusing they're they're looking at the future and they're not as as succumbing they're they're not as overcoming are overcome i should say if you will by the anxiety but donny is and i think that's a much more interesting film then just like a kind of like weird time travel film i mean i don't know i haven't seen the directors cut so i can't should on it too much but it just seems to not have this list probably sounds like a conversation that the editor had with richard kelly as i'm in the man you got a lot of good ideas but i really like these things because all the time travel so if you're talking about makes no sense made that's why i keep i made the comparison to star wars um i think there are certain special editions yeah yeah yeah i think there are directors who are.

"Uh who are seeing this movie because it does have like the twists and the turns into it has this weird plot structure but then at the same time it's also got these themes of time travel determinism and things like that that that i think are masked in this this garb of intellectual isn't but i don't really think there that profound and i think maybe jared that's what you are hinting at when you were first talking about the film that it that it's kind of all of their at a superficial level and again i know we use these words like superficial and pseudo intellectual now oftentimes are like epithets and i don't mean in that way i mean it i mean it more in like the technical sense of of what the words actually mean and right it is not the phil yeah go ahead while as your say i would agree however i do think that obviously the film did something well i mean even just inspiring people who had never thought that oh you should put thought and who movie or you can critically engage with a movie even if this is a quote pseudo intellectual film even if there really isn't the real robust subtext underneath what's happening i still think that it's worth appreciating in studying how is it that this film propelled people to thought 100 percent and i think that's why it would resonate with teenagers so much because teenagers they're not going to survive as much on them on par you know obviously some are the the sort of ones that are already reading like fucking plato when they're fifteen years old and shit and they're wacko 's but um good for you keep going be wacko but i feel like this film hits like that sweet spot four it's like just above the intellectual grasp of a teenager but it's not so far above.
