Americans in Afghanistan Experiencing a Wide Range of Emotions

"Retired. Army colonel mike jason. Thank you for coming on the newsworthy. It's a pleasure to be here to talk to you and your audience. So i just briefly describe for us what it's been like for you watching afghanistan comeback under taliban control. It's just been joining horrifying humiliating sad maddening. All the range of emotions for me two decades of being involved in being in the army. You know since nine eleven. That's the case for a lot of us but at the same time before we could even start to reflect or think about it we are faced with a humanitarian and really a real life crisis to people that we know serve with or fought with or friends there is almost an immediate shift to focus and attention to where to put our energies. Yeah i know you've been in contact with people who are still there in afghanistan you've talked with gold star families. What have those conversations and messages been like. They're all over the map. I heard a friend of mine you know. He's like there's a digital dunkirk going on and literally that's what it feels like all of us by peers. My friends my former soldiers in it's not just military because we've had non-governmental agencies. They're the press at huge bureaus for years so we all have people on the ground. It's a rush to parse through the chaos and understand what what's happening what the communications are what's the way out what's truth. What's not truth. who safe what. The processes are just sifting through candidate confusion because it all happened just so quickly right and really to help those people and gold star families. That's just a rash of emotions. How do you even begin to conceptualize that and so i. It's just sort of checking in just letting them know that you're thinking about them. They're heard and there's different takes to it. They're frustrated or others resigned to it or many ways. It's hard to put in the words.

The Secretary of Defense Is Not Willing To Save Americans in Afghanistan

"Now. Lloyd austin is the secretary of defense. He was asked repeatedly by members of the media. How many people are in afghanistan. Can we get those people out of afghanistan. What if this turns into a hostage situation like the iran hostage crisis. What if this turns into a afghan equivalent of dunkirk. What is the plan. Here what what are our capabilities. And what we saw from the answers. From lloyd austin and mark milley was beyond underwhelming. It was humiliating. In fact it was scary. The fact that these people are in charge of our military shows that we are not safe. Only to listen to this cut seventy-six secretary of defense. Lloyd austin says that we don't have the capability to go out and collect large numbers of people cut seventy-six advocate publicity. Can go out and collect americans would. We don't have the capability go out and collect large numbers of people bar. That's a lie. The united states military has the capability to do it. We have hypersonic missiles. We have robo vehicles. We have drone reconnaissance. What he's saying we don't have the willingness to do that big difference capability and willingness

"RN DOT FM accurate now live from the studios of Freedoms Phoenix Ernest handcock and former Arizona Superintendent, public construction up until eighteen. Do Longo Diane Douglas now. The one thing that she's got to save the kids and I'm I'm looking this up while she'll be talking to start searching own site because the search engines of wiped it off the face of the planet it was A. I think it was a pastor and it was years ago when he was saying, we need a movement, it escape from Dunkirk, what rings in my head and the point that he was saying is like we rescued the soldiers when the Nazis had. You know the French and the British soldiers up against ocean on dunkirk northern France how they didn't have a meeting or stroke Dash Oh. Orders Written We'll get to it some day. It's just people do their families, their their fathers, their sons. Brothers, get in your freaking rowboat and go over. There are many miles across the channel they're go get them, which is exactly what they did. They just brought their pleasure craft whatever you watch the movie. There's a lot more to that they went and got him. Well, his concept was the children are up against the ocean and it is in the government schools that Nazi collectivist, Socialist Marxist, whatever it is attacking them. We need to help them escape Dunkirk. So he was encouraging in one summer years ago for all of the Christians and churches, and so on. You know if you don't have a kid or a grandkid, find a neighbor kid do whatever you can to help them escape. This prison which they are now actually doing putting them in there literally a bubble. and not see and facial expressions for I. See somebody put a mask on a baby or they're strolling around out in the park with a baby and they got a mask on. It's a frequent child abuse man you know this is so I'm going all right show. Scape from dunkirk concept I. Mean you know it's like I mean pick a kid and save him because if you let them go even a school year, this is jacked up. I WANNA make this one point after nine eleven I was going to Sky Harbor and I'm leaving and they had a young couple in their mid twenties to little kids like three and four. Oh, we put her shoes in great banned from the Nice Mando, one anal probe of what they were training a not just the kids. But the parents another generation of papers please oh here they are. Getting along get your shot. This is the beginning of something much much larger. What's the Solution Diane? What do you think we should do well and that's the the exactly what they're doing with this mask mandate with our children in school training them from as young as kindergarteners that you just comply and do what the government tells you again, parents out there public school exit dot Com and we we will give you information on how you can home-school. We have webinars on how parents can deal with one of the saddest things I read was in our my. Former Peoria School board parents were going to go down to the school board meeting and mass demand. They reopened the schools parents know tell them keep those schools closed give us money lent us, educate our children. As we see fit. By the means we deem best if we don't get our kids out of government schools, we will not only we lose yet another generation of children we will lose our country government doesn't work. I Want my money back. Okay. This is one thing that. Is. Going on here in New Hampshire, there was an election cycle coming up and you got the Free State Project. You Know Freedom Oriented Libertarian volunteers, leave me alone. Run for office and they started this re open the schools reopened some people run and reopen the schools going. Keep closed. For Good Done X. You know. I think. I'll decline. So this is a movement like that in Arizona at all starting to get traction anybody talking about. Well. I'm talking about it to everyone in every person that can listen and yes, we're seeing parents and I can't put a number on it. It would be the. Best certainly more than last year, parents are starting to create little pod schools. There's an organization called Brenda and their little I call it a micro school eight, ten kids I mean one of the things parents need to realize is that what a child needs to to learn if you home school only two or three hours a day, the reason schools are seven and eight hours long is because government schools have become an adult work jobs program and so we're long school day daycare, but shame on parents who use it for that. But we saw increase their taxes that it's virtually impossible for many people not to be a two income family. So then they have to depend on the schools for daycare. Parents about education you're better off buying education for your child someplace privately or micro school or whatever, and then if you need to make some kind of cooperative within your neighborhood for longer term care because some of you work figure out a way to do it, your child's life in our country is at stake in my opinion. Okay I'm doing this it's called call to Dunkirk. Call to Dunkirk. Now I found it I had two stories on it that we did this so I, click on them and I go okay open that up and where do I get? Oh, that sites taken down is not allowed and so and has gone known young young young young I like of course it is. You know this is a main. Okay. Here's one that's open Christians call to abandon public education was this December of Oh eight. So this is right after the Ron Paul, love Aleutian election and Obama gets elected.

Dunkirk Awards

"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well

Christopher Nolan's Sci-FI Thriller 'Tenet' Delayed Indefinitely

"Off Hollywood's calendar indefinitely. NPR's Bob Mondello reports They have a season killing ripple effect when the rest of Hollywood was backing away from opening dates in May and June. All I have for you is a word, everyone in the business put their faith in Christopher Nolan sci fi thriller, It'll open the right doors. Some of the wrong ones. Two doors tenant needed to open our in multiplexes. All the movie studios have been pushing back theatrical openings over concern about the pandemic, with some titles, even jumping straight to streaming. But Warner Brothers and director Nolan, whose blockbusters inception, Dunkirk and the Batman Dark Knight trilogy have made billions of dollars on the big screen were adamant that there $200 million thriller would be the 10th pole that would hold up the summer moviegoing tent. When theater chains got open, they said tenant would bring the crowd is about survival for theater owners. It is about survival all through the spring, Nolan and Warners held firm. That they would premiere tenant in cinemas on July 17. But as it became clear that theater chains would not be fully opened by this past weekend, that date slipped first to July 31 then 2 August 12 and now Warner's has taken tenant off its release calendar, promising to quote share a 2020 release date. Imminently Endquote TheStreet. Dio also said it would not be giving tenant a traditional global day and date release industry speak for opening all over the planet at once. Warner's didn't specify what a nontraditional release might look like. That part is a little dramatic Speculation in film circles has been that given the rising number of covert 19 cases in the U. S, and the flattening of curves elsewhere. A studio might try premiering tenant overseas, Christopher Nolan blockbusters tend to do 2/3 of their business in foreign countries and some major territories, South Korea, Japan, China and a few European markets have been re opening cinemas predicting box office grosses in that sort of fragmented here, and their release, though, would require a crystal ball or the abilities of the film's leading man with a future. Inversions without those powers. Let's just note that in China and South Korea when cinemas have reopened, they've done so with stringent social distancing protocols and fewer Showtime's to allow for deep cleaning of auditoriums. Theaters operating at, say 30% of their usual capacity will not be turning out a lot of box office records. That will also be true at cinemas in the US and of course, some of the biggest movie markets here are still in one form or another of lock down. It would be unprecedented to premiere a major blockbuster and not play New York or Los Angeles on opening weekend. But right now, A lot of things are unprecedented. Bob Mondello NPR news

"To film spotting the last couple of weeks. Josh have seen some of the most high profile new releases we've had since movie theater shutdown back. In March Hamilton arrived on Disney plus two weeks ago. We talked about that on last week's episode also last week. I recommended Gina Prints by woods, the old guard with Charlene Darren. That came to Netflix's weekend. And that's when you caught up with Josh and they understand. You liked it. Maybe not as enthusiastically as I did, but you went forward. Okay? Yeah, consider me. Me a fan, I think I probably became a little more wearied by the gunplay. Which you mentioned was your talked about it probably a little more than you did, but yeah, definitely appreciated and think it's something that people should check out. Last weekend also saw the release of the World War Two thriller Greyhound with Tom Hanks that's on apple, plus neither of us have had a chance to see that yet, but fellow critics have assured us that the nation's fathers and grandfathers have a new favorite movie and Josh. Also last weekend, the new horror film relic available on demand. Palm Springs. The groundhog day inspired comedy which is available on. You saw relic. We both saw Palm Springs, and we'll give each of those a little bit of time later in the show, but first tires. Please cue up our review discussion of Christopher. Interstellar. We haven't mentioned our mission does not work if the people on our dead by the time you pull it off. That this far any human history, not far no! Doubt. Yes, you are yes, you are. Upon, its release in two thousand fourteen atom, we gave interstellar a robust thirty minute review. You were hugely enthusiastic. I was mixed to negative. You remain a big Fan and you've seen it sense I believe right. Yeah, all right in two thousand seventeen. They're going meter. Yup, at the music box theatre where it's going to be playing again this weekend actually here in Chicago in seventy millimeter interstellar currently ranked number two on your Nolan. List for me this. Who've review was my first revisit sense two thousand fourteen now on the two of us. The movie has a score of seventy four. Critic among critics that's considered generally favorable, and for what it's worth. Most of Nolan's movies hover around the seventies on metacritic Dunkirk. That's his highest rating there with a ninety four. So that's where we stood. But where do we stand now in two thousand twenty? Have you add them passed through a wormhole and come out on the other side to see the error of your ways have I been sucked into a black hole trapped behind some cosmic bookshelf as punishment until I admit the air of mine. We could relitigate are twenty fourteen debate. We could revisit the same points. We both brought up, but I'm not sure how fruitful that would be I'm happy to do some of that and I promise I will not bring up a certain nineteen, sixty eight sci-fi epic. You declared verboten when discussing interstellar listeners, they can revisit that whole discussion in the archives at film spotting dot net episode five fifteen. Today. I'd like to start where that review ended in a last-minute attempt to bring me on board Adam. You asked me if I wasn't just plain thrilled watching interstellar. If setting aside my complaints quibbles, I couldn't admit to having a thrilling movie going experience. I quickly answered in the negative and we moved on. Watching interstellar again, and this was before I, release into I review or even read what I had written about in two thousand fourteen. This was the exact question I found myself asking especially in the context of our overview with so many Nolan films fresh in my mind at their best. His movies do thrill me. They get me Giddy. There's always a moment. Nolan blows your Noggin, intellectually emotionally existential early, and all I can do is let out a Guffaw of appreciation. We've already talked about some of these. These moments in our overview. I think of Memento where Leonard says I'm chasing this guy. Nope he's chasing me. Or how about the image of the hats in the prestige? When we realize what's really going on here and I know you care less about it than I, do Adam, but the spinning top in those final moments of inception. Wow on twitter this week marking. The tenth. Anniversary Kevin Geogra- Nov, said this a decade later and I still remember the entire pact prescreening audience audibly gasping at the smash cut ending. That was me.

"We are joined by our guys at the movies guy Kevin Kerr and Kevin I know theaters are opening here in Pinellas county they're gonna open up again right now the much to the chagrin of some but the movies themselves aren't being made anymore now than it's going to be a while probably for Hollywood cranks it up again and well yeah I think people are waiting and seeing what's going to happen because the movie that's that's next on the slate the next one that that had a release date that did not get moved his talent which is David of seasoning which is Christopher Nolan's latest film he of course did inception and the dark knight movies in interstellar and Dunkirk and this is going to be a big movie part of it is it's a seventy millimeter film the once showed him thirty five millimeter and seventy millimeter to my Max but it's also two hundred million dollars so you need to have as many theaters open and you got to have them being able to play and you also have to have a sort of that consumer confidence of people going out to do it you can't deal with the suppressed audience now they just dropped attendance trailer yesterday last night and it is it does not have a release date all the trailer but according to the website it's still coming out on July seventeenth so we'll see before there's new content that that's coming out I think this is one of those you know what came first chicken or the egg the reader is going to open up a nationwide or are they gonna start releasing movies first and and that's something but I think it's a wait and see I think there's there's still some time left for this to be pondered could you see because the state of Georgia is opening up and we know that there's a lot of film incentives out there could you see Hollywood packing up and maybe going out east to Georgia to get some of this film work done for future movies well here's the problem with actually ramping up the production as well is it the there's there's the insurance issue that that every large production had carries of some sort of production insurance it says that they're going to be able to continue to produce and make this movie and that there's not something that's going to happen to it like a great example is in the fast and furious movie there this is one of the best movies there in the middle of making and Paul Walker died and then change the schedule and change the budget and changed everything they had insurance that covered that it's gonna be very hard to start up production on anything with any sort of coronavirus insurance so like the big productions are still out you know I E. independent doesn't matter where they where they go even Tyler Perry's talk about opening up but you're going to have to have distancing there as well either talking about producing smaller movies like a Blumhouse is going to be doing something Michael bay has one that he wants to start producing very soon but those are going to be smaller low budget the productions are not gonna be the two hundred million dollar blockbusters well they're going to be interesting to see how it all plays out and I guess going to be big for Netflix and Hulu and all of those like that

The Dark Knight Trilogy (Nolan #4)

"Welcome to film spotting so Josh. We've arrived at the stage of our Nolan who've review where we've actually reviewed the films on the show previously the first three films in the series following Memento and insomnia all predate film spotting this week. We're revisiting Nolan's dark knight trilogy. Two thousand five's Batman begins which started. It was one of the first films reviewed on the show. Way Back in two thousand five. That movie came out in June. The show began in March of. Oh five unfortunately. Our Review on episode eighteen of the show has been archived in the basement of Wayne Industry headquarters along with all the other films. Spotting PROTOTYPES COW. Can't hear me out among the disappointed listeners. Who went to search for that review? Just today thinking I'd be able to hear Sam. I thought it would be good preparation you know like to do. My homework. Couldn't find it so we'll have to unearth that at some point. Yeah I'll have to give you a tutorial on searching the archive film spotting website. Because it's there but you can bet. I did not seek it out interest in listening to the archive that I found only went back to. I forget what show but it wasn't this one so yeah I'll have to get to to`real but with that review lost a time. I guess the best thing we can do for now is move on to version two point. Oh world like to disappear. Barron staff was not for the parents to serve. Justice cannot let pass. If you yourself and you become something else. Dialing our Christopher Nolan overview stays on chronological track at least for the moment with two thousand five's Batman Begins Adam. This is Nolan's big-budget high profile. Follow up to insomnia which itself was a medium budgeted studio. Follow up to his indie breakout. Memento what did I expect from Batman begins in two thousand? Five Nolan was already on my radar as a special talent superhero movies. Were something I enjoyed but aside from Tim Burton's Batman Installments and Sam Raimi's Spiderman Efforts Spiderman. Too by the way came out in two thousand and four I felt Comic Book Films. Usually fell into a fairly predictable box. The question for Batman begins then was whether or not the John. Laura would bend to Nolan's promise or Nolan would bend to the genre in two thousand five to my mind. Nolan's will one out even next to Burton and Raimi's Work Nolan's take on the superhero film stood out as distinct. It was dark. It was intense and above all it was rooted in a real world. Specificity that was recognizable while building his costume. I love that Bruce Wayne Orders some ten thousand bat ears that turn out to be unusable. This Bruce Wayne and even Batman could exist just like us he had to do Amazon returns. That first impression of Batman begins makes me think that I watched it through the Lens of a Superhero Movie. Perhaps with tempered expectations this time. Though in the midst of our review I was decidedly watching it through the Lens of a Christopher Nolan movie and from that perspective keeping in mind masterful later efforts like the prestige which was Nolan's next film the Dark Knight which doubles down on much of what made Batman begins so throwing inception and dunkirk. That begins played as far more conventional. It has Nolan touches to be clear deception traumatized characters narrative twist but they each seemed a bit better towards the genre this time around something of a compromise. If in understandable one given where Nolan was in his career ultimately I think my original impression is probably the correct one and we can maybe get into a tangent here atom on whether or not a films original context matters. Most I think that's especially applicable. Maybe to dark knight rises but either. Way Adam. I'm curious what frame of mind you're in while revisiting Batman begins for our Nolan overview. Did you approach it as a superhero movie which in twenty twenty means contending with the reality of the MC you or did you assess it more? On a Nolan scale you know from interstellar on the bottom to the top where you'll find dunkirk. How dare you? I love how you unnerve me heading into my reply here and maybe that's appropriate because even though you answered it. I see what you're trying to do I'm onto you. You're actually previewing are pending discussion of the Dark Knight by presenting me with a joker like Dilemma Harvey. Rachel press the button and kill the other passengers. Risk them killing me Nolan movie or Superhero Movie. Your just an agent of chaos. Josh always knew what do I look like a guy with plan on one hand? I wasn't looking at this film. This trilogy of films as a Nolan creation consciously and I am it would be happening unconsciously of course just by the nature of this little project that we have set out on at the same time. I was eager to see this origin story again because just like I suppose bruce being forever scarred by his encounter with the bats I'm gonNA forever be blessed with the memory of my first superhero movie. Richard Donner's Superman. It's been talked about a little bit over the years here on the show and among its many thrills it shows us who Clark is how we got Earth those early discoveries of his gifts running alongside the train kicking that football. This first demonstrations of his abilities and helping people as Superman. That's the stuff I ate up. Then that's the stuff. I still eat up now. The Fun stuff. I guess that equate with Superhero movies. That is lost the darker. You alluded to this the darker. The more realistic the more serious. These movies get honestly the more these films feel less like Superman and more like James Bond. And that's definitely the case in this trilogy. I think this is where we really see. It happen right. Where Superhero Movies did turn into? Something else became something else in pop culture. We watched it unfold over the course of these. Three movies didn't we? I think that's fair. I think you could roll in watchmen there but that was two thousand nine so this was ahead of that.

'Downton Abbey,' 'Breaking Bad,' and Why TV Is Still Jealous of Movies

"Chris. You're here along with Amanda because you know a lot about television and Amanda and I are for a little bit out on television sort of as a general rule. I'm post. TV POST TV separate succession. Now there are some television shows that I love. I started to watch when this weekend that I think is incredibly well made which is called unbelievable but I was just home with my mom for a little while and she while she's a stranger to cable news but she adorable still gets a lot of her news from the newspaper so two days later she'll be like. Did you hear about Joe. Biden and I'll like what what do you mean. Did something new happens you know. Did you hear about this phone. Call and that's just what you did with unbelievable where you were like. I'm breaking to you guys that there's this show well no now. I admit I am one one week late and you've already covered the show on the WOK yeah. We've already covered the sh the show on the site. I just didn't have the time to get to you. I hear you I'm seeing all these movies but one thing that is interesting that it's happening right now is is that I even though the just happened and even though TV is having this incredible boom time I feel like TV is still a little jealous of the movies and we know that because Downton Tanabe rather than comeback as an eight part miniseries has decided to become a full length feature film and the people said. Yes they said Yes to the tune of thirty three million dollars a lot of money for an extension of the Downton Abbey University was a show that was popular and a phenomenon sort of when it started. I believe the first episode of the Hollywood respective podcasts was a recap of the Dow naby premier guess which is just amazing what times past its Niche Butler's Butler's and and and you know that's a show that I liked and I really did you recap Amanda you recap what an amazing time capsule of our life on the Internet in creating culture and now it's a fulling feature feature film which is something that I think twenty years ago it had happened you would have said Downton Abbey really grew up and stepped up to the big leagues in this case. I wonder how you guys feel about what what it means to extend what was once a broadcast. TV Show into movie platform and also like why why this movie work. Why did it work so well. I have a couple of sites and the answer answer of why to turn it into a feature film is money which worked out because it made thirty three million dollars we had a great piece on the ringer last week by writer named Kate Loyd who's based in London and it was he's about the downtown Abbey Economy essentially in how the show changed both tourism in the UK and like she went to a lot of fancy locations and like talk to British these people but also how it changed the British TV industry and down abby the show. Was this wakeup call I think for people in the UK okay that people would from other parts of the world would watch when these costume dramas it was kind of a revival of the costume drama and also had a finance the shows so that they could me distributed around the world and so the piece argues that you know everything from peaky blinders to howards end to all of the things that we now consume and treat as part of the television firmament at least the latest generation of them are a result of Downton Abbey success right that show relaunch yeah Adia so in that way. It's not that surprising to me that it did while because it was like a legitimate phenomenon and we've lived with it for a long time in maybe season six. I wasn't as great as season one but it made a lot of money in a lot of people liked watching it. It's short relief to because the two other big releases over the weekend and that it beat out were ad Astra which was covered at length on this podcast last week and as a movie that I would recommend people see and Rambo last blood. Did you catch up with that Chris. I didn't see I saw ad Astra instead of Rambo because this was not playing anywhere near me. Oh that's a shame why was that I woke neighborhood for you. so neither of those films which are very male centric stallone doesn't play well in. Philly yeah that's a good point you'd think he'd be in every theatre getting but I guess partially one of the the reasons why down succeeded so well is because a lot of women saw this movie and it was the primary opportunity for women at checkout films one week after hustlers dominated the box office and sensing a trend here if you like this happens four five times a year when people are like there are movies for women as well yeah. I think that's true also float yes women see movies. Rah Rah route whatever old people really see movies and the theatres is there is nothing better to do with your time if you got a mom or Gramma Ma than to take them and see the Downton Abbey. That is just wholesome entertainment for everyone so I think that that is as important. The age is as important as the gender breakdown on this one. Let's let's just very quickly. Even though Chris has not seen the downton movie talk about what's good about the downs and movie you and I attempted to recap the film for Chris via slack last week. You feel like we did a good job. Ah Yeah I think so recognized all the names. All the actions made sense I just did they didn't really come together in a sort of visual sentence for me so that is actually a notable spoke to Michael Angler about this. It is a little bit of Downton on steroids. You know the theme music is amplified in such a way that maybe they had three hundred more brass instruments. Mintz played playing the theme song. There's a lot of drone shots of Downton Abbey. It is it is a a muscular rise version of this upstairs downstairs costume drama the film itself did strike me though I think you may have originally said this to me as just one long episode of Downton Abbey to me it was like a Christmas special sel which they do in the UK and I think it was the season two Christmas special of Downton Abbey which is when Matthew and Mary finally get together and like kissing the snow outside outside of the side of the House I would say it's on par with the Christmas special except for like to party set-pieces instead of one as you said and fancier dresses addresses and I guess there's like a first episode climax halfway through the movie and then a second episode kind of bringing everyone home. The thing is downstairs to get into some hijinks and then there's ramifications upstairs. It's crazy what happens on almost like it's upstairs downstairs I thought it was an enjoyable movie and I'm not surprised that it was successful. I'm surprised it was successful. It was also the biggest movie in the history of focus features which just fascinating I have spoken to some people who worked worked on this movie and they have when they acquired the rights to release this movie. They said we have our IP. We have our version of superhero movie and focus features. That's what I was. GonNa say really leans into that older audience that you're talking about the identify women as their audience much more clearly and this is a part of the same strategy so I wouldn't say necessarily the Ad Astra had this problem but I do think that it is near impossible to sell anything anymore without some pre existing kind of awareness of what you're getting when you walk into it just because there's so many options for people that if you just sorta like here's a movie about butlers and rich people story. Michelle dockery people are going to be like I don't know but if it's something that they have this decade long relationship leashes ship with if they have the kind of extra screen relationship that they have they cared about and if there is like I was I was watching a lot of linear television this week because I was with my mom. We were watching the Ken Burns documentary. There was down Abbey stuff sandwich. Every episode of the Ken Burns Documentary Music talking to the country music to let you know it's coming out. Here's the history of the show. Here's a recap of everything that happened. Here's the making of the show like they actually did their push. It just just happened on public television. We didn't see it as much necessarily as like Robert Downey junior driving around in an Audi with a Samsung phone pushing vendors do you think that this is now now a sort of MCI -ation of Downton or is this just a one off thing that they struck gold on this one movie or is there going to be another one have been teasing the sequel for weeks. Now that's yeah yeah they've been talking about how the possibilities open and I think you know which is code for. Yes it will happen and they certainly leave the door open in the movie. Everyone is in in a happy place but more hijinks cannon sue and I'm sure well a Dan. I'm curious how far you can probably only take down into world war. Two 'cause post World War. Two I think all of those states just for their museums museums the economy economy of the upper class in the UK just breaks down and it's just not how upstairs downstairs doesn't really apply as much anymore the film kind of glances at the end to the how much longer can this go on which I thought was an interesting potential way to seal office equal in the end zone dunkirk what we'll talk about this more. Maggie Smith is in this movie Maggie Smith Chris do modify spoil Israel okay. I guess if you are really really strict about spoilers. Turn it off now. Even but Maggie Smith gives a speech that's kind of like a farewell speech but notably nothing actually conclusively happens to whether Maggie Smith math will be in future episodes of down nappy. TV show or something happens to her but then they're like. We'll see what happens yeah she could've done urge becomes iron man. It's incredible credibly. She defeats the end of the movie. It's wild. It's nineteen twenty seven in this movie that's right. They've got like twenty more years. Yeah okay. What's interesting to me about. This is is the movies in theaters. It's an extension of a television show there have been there's been the super sizing of TV shows into movie form a lot over the last year. This isn't the first first time it's happened. In the ninety. s we saw the kind of like met a rift commentary on things by having. Beverly hillbillies movies and Brady Bunch movies now what we have is just a more clear extension of the stories that originally told there was a dead movie earlier. This year was a between two ferns movie also released over the weekend which is not quite the same serialized television but is in the same tradition in a way away and then in October. We have a breaking bad movie called El Camino Dave Dina do this for a long time. They've been dying to get this kind of multiplatform storytelling going because of the amount of money there is if you can actually do what they wanted to do with dark tower where you can tell something that has has a feature presentation that maybe is the sort of the danger of the story but like you have other storylines going on TV and that you could actually create a like twelve month a year sport out of your story. That's why they want you know and now there are different things now.

'The Goldfinch' paints dull picture from prize-winning book

"Donna tarts 2013 book the Goldfinch won a Pulitzer Prize for its story of a boy whose mother dies in bombing. It is an epic tale of grief life abandonment friendship drugs and stolen painting of a Goldfinch now the Goldfinch has been adapted into a movie starring Ansel elgort Oaks vaguely Nicole Kidman Luke Wilson Jeffrey Right in Wolf Hart and Sarah Paulson. I'm Stephen Thompson this week on pop culture happy hour from NPR. You're talking the Gold Bitch of the movie movie and the book that spawned in here with me in the studio is very hardiman. Who was the books editor for Weekend Edition. Hello Bury. It is a pleasure to have you here. Also with us is writer Katie Presley Wrestling Hello Katy Hi there and also joining us writer Chris Clinic Hello Chris. I've seen Goldfinger a hundred times. I'm so excited to talk about so I'm not going to start with you and give you a couple of minutes to regroup start with Berry. You've read the book have and you've seen the movie. Would you think think well I will say that this movie suffers from something that I think often happens when you try to maybe be just slightly to faithful full to a in terms of literary adaptation the book which is a doorstop of a book and has so many places and plot points. If you reduce it down to its plot points it becomes a very and then this and then this and then this and then this and the movie to me felt very plop. PLOP PLOP PLOP plot plot. Here's a lovely actor plop. PLOP PLOP PLOP plot and in their ways in which you know as you read the list of actors in it and I heard Ansel elgort oaks vaguely. I thought well that sounds like a more interesting movie because it didn't it sort of lost some of its Dickensian deal of the book because it seems to me. Maybe you had a director who was so who wanted to be. He's just so faithful to the book that he he neglected to tell the real story of the book which I think you can do and lose truly like maybe half off of the plot. which in some ways is maybe how I felt about the book? I think Donna Tart is marvelous. I am a huge secret for history fan and this is a hard one to do. You're telling this story that spans a number of years and and that involves a lot of characters being played by multiple actors unless you are Nicole Kidman your role is is split between only do a roll if she can play a forty year span in a in a characters life exactly so so this is a sprawling story so to summarize a little bit of that plot boy named Theo he he is at a museum with his mom. The museum bombed his mother dies and feel winds up taking a painting from the museum and that painting has an impact on his life as the the movie follows him through his childhood and his young adulthood so there there is a lot there's a lot of character development to pack into this story and it sort of follows the the fate of this kid and of this painting Katie. Would you think a dark secret about me as a reader is I really am not generous wis.. It's morally questionable characters so I think in order like you're supposed to be in order to be an intelligent reader your supposed to appreciate morally A. and big. US or even morally repugnant characters because they're interesting. I can't stand them. I'm a nice person right like do do it in the streets apparently able in the sheets of a book. Yes the book. Write it on a bathroom. Okay life so what made the book interesting to me was that the central question of the book is a question of moral ambiguity like a boy away who is very recently concussed has just been in a has just been the victim of a terrorist attack plucks painting out of a museum because he thinks he's supposed post to because a dying man has told him to and then as he gets older he realizes what he's done and it becomes a dark web kind of closing in in on him what he's done and the sorts of people who want in on what he's done somehow the movie didn't capture that complexity to the character of Theo. I'm very judgy of unlikeable. Characters is the pithy way of saying it that is a fundamental part of who theo is is that the way that he processes the trauma of losing his mother and being in that explosion is by getting into some really shady stuff and I think the the elgort performance manages to lose that but also doesn't gain any charisma so felt like a very flat performance to me and not performance is central to you have to care about him if you're going to care about this story. He's the one that makes you believe that. The painting is magical. He's the one that makes you believe that the object of his affection is Helen of Troy like worth all affection and that his caretaker is as benevolent as he is. There's so much magic that the book has time came to expand upon through. Theo's is the movie didn't give you so. I came out feeling Gosh. That was awfully pretty gosh. I'm glad I read that Gorgeous Book Doc. Gosh why I'm hungry. It was long. That was the last thing hunger what you came out all right. How about you Chris Yeah. I didn't quite finish the novel before I saw the movie because it is a few pages shy of eight hundred pages so it is about three times the length of a typical novel so even a two and a half hour movie movie is a very hurried very condensed adaptation of this. I think I agree with with Katie's macro critique of how the you know. The movie tells the story and loses nearly all the subtext I sort I thought I would enjoy that more because Theo is the narrator of the novel and we get a little bit of voice over from him in the film but not very much not in his his head you know living with his perceptions the way you are for every word of this again eight hundred page book. I think this movie needed a director with a more a deft hand at combining time period. This is a you know a film and novel that jumps back and forth between our Neri narrators thirteen and when he's I dunno twenty eight or thirty or something Christopher Nolan is a director who does this this really well. Sorry I know always the person defending the Chris Nolan movie in this in this corner but he might have found a way to make it even longer that's not fair. That's got dunkirk but yeah but that thing that this film attempts were were were making the something that is chronologically prior to most of what we've seen gene feel like the emotional climax of the film that is the kind of card trick that he can pull off in this director John Crouch John Crowley who made Brooklyn which I which I like very much. That's a much much much simpler story. It's linear. I don't mean to diminish her or Sarandon's performance but I mean she's not morally conflicted in the way that that answer low Gorz that that Theo is in in this movie. I think that's a great a great adaptation this just I yeah it feels hammy plotting kind of workmanlike. I think it diminishes the book doc somewhat of the same reaction one thing that I kept thinking throughout this movie was why is this a movie and not and I don't mean like why is this a movie like why does is this exist. I'm not sitting there with my arms folded but I'm thinking why isn't this and this is this is gonNA sound counterintuitive. Why isn't this an eight hour series. Why isn't this I mean. This is Amazon Studios. They could have made this as a as a long form TV project and given the filmmakers time to dry out these characters a little a bit better. This is an epic story. This is seven hundred seventy three page book. This is a two and a half hour movie and the movie somehow feels both rushed and slow oh and that's a really tough combination because they're racing through all these plot machinations and I just kept sitting there and it felt longer than two and a half hours. I just kept sitting there thinking. I don't feel like I'm getting to know these characters. I can tell we're a long way from the ending and yet at the same time at weirdly weirdly doesn't feel like anything's happening even though they're so much plot I found the experience of watching the movie to be really frustrating as much as it. It is beautifully shot. I think there are some lovely performances and then I think it's very nicely cast think oaks vaguely as young was a non he was. Aso Oh he was also in Pete's Dragon. Which is I know I've heard the name oaks vaguely before I think he's terrific. I think fin wolf hard as the OS Ukrainian best friend and that he meets when he has been transported to the horrors of the outskirts of Las Vegas. He meets this. He meets this kid. Boris played by and Woolford who has really thick accent and I'm so used to seeing fin wolf heart in the movies or in stranger things but I thought that was a strangely lovely performance really affecting performance. I liked the child actors in this a little bit more than some of the grownup performances. There are all these little components of it that I like. It's shot by Roger Deacons. WHO's an amazing cinematographer awesome. I was kind of a standard with his credit came up at the end because this is not a movie that I mean it's mostly indoors it. You know it doesn't have the kind of big visas of movies like bladerunner when she finally went his Oscar for or you know sicario or the Coen brothers movies he's made but yeah I I was surprised because it just felt like TV for me and not you know not prestige. TV necessarily kind of well. I think wow I mean I do but I do think that's part of it as it did feel like it had the tone of like a like a big little lies tight type story and partly because it enter Cole Kidman but like it felt like it should be on TV. I think that's right because the book itself self is also incredibly episodic. You have and she does this. I mean this is a very secret history a little friend kind of thing to do where she is interested in the interplay of these different worlds of being in the busy the teaming space of New York and the upper east side and then being in this wasteland of Las Vegas and then being the places you go and her books and the way that like class and police and person rub up against each other is is very important and again every idea in this movie feels very unfinished. He obviously understood that thing about class that she's talking about. He understood the thing about you know first impression and art and an in how trauma plays but everything only gets a glancing blow and had it banned you know here is the episode with Boris in Amsterdam. Here is the episode bestowed with Boris and unless Vegas. I think you would have gotten a little more of that and you know what would have been really nice as you know because the book doesn't really have a doesn't land the plane really you're really just sort of circling over a philosophy rather than a a plot ending you would have given the viewer more time to develop it on their own so I I walked out feeling sort of confused and I didn't have that feeling of you know even though I did feel the book's ending is finished I i. I still felt that I'd had an experience of all these things. There was a lot to talk about. There was a lot to think about. I did not feel this here except there was a lot to love in the apartment. I do want to shoutout Oh. My God will be but also hoagies apartment beautiful. I liked all the apartments actually the glimpses you got of the Os the apartment art that deals with his mother and the barber's so the Barbara's are the wealthy family that I take. Theo in immediately after the explosion and e barber is he's a friend of the owes a classmate they were closer as young boys than they are now but they take him in and misses Barbara's played by Nicole Kidman. Who who I gotta say has never I'm not in a coal kidman person and so I think one of the places that this movie faltered for me is it she was like a black hole and the camera just rested on her face gazing at Theo thoughtfully and I was like this is wasted time is not an idea exactly and like that so much of how she actually acts through her cheek bones those are the antenna you know you're watching them for curry action and just like the little movements at the corner of her mouth and I don't Act Shoe Willie find that very interesting. I'm cheekbone person. I like a good cheek bone but it felt felt contractual. It felt like Ms Kidman requires no fewer than fifteen minutes of close up on cheek and the character both in I will say this. This is true in the book and the Movie Opens Up Santa Clara yes in her older age. She her family encounters major tragedy that that compounds the sympathy see that she was already forming for Theo but when we're talking about these weird drops into melodrama added melodrama that was not necessary because the story sorry could be dramatic if you let it breathe a little bit more so like too much time on Kidman. She did not work for me. I did actually like her at her oldest eight in the movie. I saw all of her performances written on top of each other. I saw in your wife like a close match of the way that Hart describes the character but you don't have to do it. Exactly the way tart describes the character you can cast someone else you go a different direction. You know you can still you. An adaptation is not a straight st translation right. I do want to say one thing because if people do not want to see this movie which I would certainly understand after this conversation I will say the book itself is one if those wonderfully meandering tales that actually benefits from the time you spend reading it you know you dip into it for a new episode and the writing eating is absolutely incandescent the descriptions of the furniture the look at Las Vegas the even the descriptions of some of the emotions like the tears ears that fall out of his face that are unconnected to I mean they're they're all of these moments in the book that really stick with you and I will say I do think it is absolutely worth whatever time time you put in to this book too so I agree. I just you

"Whole it basically Gli is kind of like a book end to the battle of dunkirk and told from Winston Churchill's point of view and what he did to basically we save England in the war because they were at risk of losing their entire army and so it was really well well done. It was felt like you were watching. It felt like you're in history class but it was good. It was GONNA okay. I also watched eighth grade which I know you talked about a while ago that movie and it was one of those that if I sat down and said does anyone want to watch this movie it would never get picked in my hand so I just turned it on and if anybody wanted to watch it so my twelve year old ended up watching it with me and I thought this is probably okay and he I was looking at his phone like I'm not GonNa. Watch it but I know he was watching most of it uh-huh which was fine until there was the whole scene about her figuring out. What a blow the job is like? Oh speaking of awkward that whole movie was Awkward and Oh my Gosh. Did she win anything. Because she was amazing she was amazing. I think she's going to have a bright future. I don't know that she went anything. No Oh my God. I don't think that movie got not half the acclaim. It should have it was just A. I think the topic was just a little bit too niche for it to win awards Kalash. I just I felt like I was reliving middle school and I watch so much I know I am. I have a teenage daughter exactly that age when we watched it and she was I mean there were moments. She was crying. She left the movie and she said it was all spot on for everything girl. Her Age feels yes. It was so well done and yet I still feel like you kind of got a happy ending and I really liked it. I thought it was happy as you can be an eighth grade. I know I've got it was really really good and then I actually went to the movies last night and saw a preview of a new bio-pic called token which oh I'm always thought it was pronounced token. This is the the story about the author of Lord of the Rings. Jr are token apparently pronounces it token so oh see now. I have a third pronunciation you thought it was toll. Qui N and its toll keen I think I always pronounced toll key token toll kind okay. I think I have pronounced it tolkien well. They actually make it a point to talk about the pronunciation okay. I haven't done a review yet. I'm going to write a review. It's interesting because this is not the normal type of movie I would review and not the one I'm normally asked to review. I actually asked if I could go and review it and I think there were like some serious hardcore critics there because I heard them coming out giving a little bit of their opinion and and there were like well I mean it kind of glossed over Blah Blah Blah and I said I thought it was a beautiful movie. I loved it so anyway. That's my quick spoiler. I am going to talk talk about it in more detail but I really enjoyed it now. I think I'm GonNa do a Lord of the Rings Marathon this weekend.

Excessive rainfall and flash floods threaten central U.S.

"And other round of intense heavy rainfall anticipated across the already saturated west central Gulf region of the Gulf Coast and a moderate risk of excessive rainfall is in effect for the southeast Texas today in the south west Louisiana as an additional rainfall can only exacerbate the flash flood concerns that are in that area. You've seen the flooding in the streets of Houston, some of the areas that were already flooded a couple of years ago. And here we are back again and locally heavy. Rain and thunderstorms are possible in the south southeast at middle Atlantic and even the southwest this weekend in a four corner section out there of Mexico and Arezzo Anna, and Colorado and. Utah. Now, the rain is the heaviest right now around no Orleans, Louisiana and over towards Mississippi. It's raining pretty much all the way up to twenty in Mississippi and Louisiana and the eastern part of Texas, but that rain will dissipate somewhat in Texas today and concentrate more on the areas in Alabama and Mississippi and Louisiana rain will move into other areas over the weekend and moved to the east, but the heaviest rain and the flooding will be right now in losing Anna and eastern, Texas where they just can't take any more rain now taking a look at up north. You've got a freeze warning in western New York state around Dunkirk Fredonia most of Michigan is under a freezer. Broths warning a hard freeze warning in northern Michigan this morning, you've got some high winds in western South Dakota out there towards rapid city. Some scattered showers in the central part of Montana. You've got a freeze and frost warning in eastern Colorado tonight and the northwestern corner of Kansas, which some scattered showers in central and south eastern Kansas today and other than that the roads are looking pretty doggone good looking pretty doggone good out there this weekend.

"And I've just started writing this one in curd to me like on page thirty. I'm like, oh my God. I'm writing something really cheap for the first time. This is the first movie I've ever written for script I've ever written where I could actually make it with just you know, how do you? How do you budget though, you get people that are smart with numbers? Crunching did I put my script into a producer who budget at all out guy. He gave me a budget from sixty five thousand one hundred and five thousand what are you gonna shoot it on a lot of hitch? It. All right. Probably alexa. I would love to shoot some stuff on actual film. That's goal for later. It's like it's a camera shoes. Two ks what I show shot shorts on. It. Looks good. It's it's the attacl release. It looks really good. How about those new red cameras? Red cameras are good too. But my EP's really proficient on the the Alexis my EP fortunately has been working in the business for forever. He works on all the Christopher Nolan stuff. He just got back from Europe. He he worked on the new Dunkirk movie the departure of actor. Geography. Dunkirk movie. Yeah. Common. It'll be here. Next summer, the the reds the red gets hot that's one of the things while the call. I gotta stop because I'd overheats which so it's hard to all these cameras are so big and bulky, and like ten years from now they're going to be a joke, and they're gonna be free as Angela. So when what are what are some of the rewards than? Having some fun with some of the rewards like the twenty five dollar one is essentially just like you want to see this thing and you're going to buy a ticket and digital link to it beforehand. So twenty five bucks get you a ticket to the the first screening for the supporters, and I'm going to have once it's done as well as a link to the actual movie, and then like the fifty dollar range. We'll get you like a t shirt cold Cocco production, probably one him here. Thank you. Very cool coal Kaku production t shirt as well as employed or patch, and some stickers just a little how do you do? I am ironically this week on Friday, I will be finishing the last of what the crowd promises, I did on my movie we done all that. Well, they're well what had happened was is go like, hey, we're coming to Chicago. We're doing a screening in Chicago, come to screening sky. And then you get an Email from someone and they go I moved to tally, and then you go. Well, technically, this is on you. If I'm coming to Dallas and you'll you'll get this too. At some point at some point, you'll make another movie, and you'll do another one of these things and you'll want the person from Dallas thinking, well, he did come out, and we had drinks before the show in Dallas, he did fulfill this thing, even though this person, I think moved from one of the towns we're in. But do the best you can when you did yours. I mean, how do you do you even know the number of people that actually contributed by the end of it? I don't I don't have the grand total. I we could figure it out. I think it was. I I for some reason the number like thirteen thousand something right jumps into my mind. It's drew. It was it's it's totally insane. Especially if you come from where I come from when you crowd fund, one of these things, and you go online go hot, you know, you put it up, and you went to the funniest thing in the world. I mean, if if it's going, right? Yeah. You'd look at that thing, and it'd be like, oh, we're the sixty one thousand dollars that's cool. And then you'd go out and kind of go about your day and kind of forget about a little bit. And you'd come back like over two to sixty seven. She's like we just went out all my God. And then you'd wake up the next morning or five fifty five like, you're like overnight like crazy. This realize he stuff really rich people who play the stock market must feel like every time. I'm.

"It's a great pleasure to speak with Andrew Roberts, the author of Churchill walking with death. This is a story of one man Winston Churchill who was a force to be reckoned with in the second war from the American point of view, but he was forced to be reckoned with throughout the first half of the twentieth century in Europe through parliament and through his part taking part in governments cereal government sometimes in different parties for cereal governments. However when America I noticed as Winston Churchill is when he's called to be premier in may of nineteen forty we all know, the story, the heroic story of Churchill rallying the country to send the little boats the fleet across to rescue the British expeditionary force that's been cut off by Hitler's attack. And it's on the beaches at Dunkirk Andrew this is where America. I notice is Churchill because of these events, but the the tumult of that may is breathtaking. No one believes that he can do this. They all believe he will fall immediately. They doubt him. And here's the hard question. I have for you right away. With a ready to surrender is he the only one of cabinet who believes they could win would Halifax have negotiated a armistice with Hitler. Yes. This was very much faxes policy at the time. The the troops had no yet been released. They were beginning to be brought back from Dunkirk there were three hundred twenty five thousand troops that eventually did get back, including eighty also thousand French and Belgian troops so but at the time they that the whole of the British expeditionary force might well just be scooped up and captured inputs in German prisoner of war camps say the foreign secretary the best thing to do. Louis Halifax would be to open peace negotiations with Hitler, Mussolini and church who was adamantly opposed to this. And in a series of next five days, as of course, more and more troops were coming back successfully being back across the channel that we lost forty thousand all the equipment and all the guns all the tanks, all the heavy artillery. The troops came back literally with their rifles and dannettes and nothing else. So so the during those key days, the discussion was whether or not we should try and make some kind of peace with Hitler and Churchill held out against it. And he did he wasn't the only one in the cabinet. He did bring the other key figures, the two labor members and also Neville Chamberlain. The former prime minister round his way of the cabinet. No, it was Kevin tactically and author Greenwood easy to admire Bevan. I am place up. There are problems with him. He's anti semitic which went when he was foreign secretary with very difficult after the war. He did everything he could to try to stymie the state of Israel. Oh, let's mention the Churchill was out of step by being followed a huge now to step Churchill light Jews. He went on holiday juice, his father and ensure that he grew up with Jews he represented Jews in his first constituency, and he had support he supported the Balfour declaration, of course, cooling for the creation of a homeland for the Gs in Palestine, and so and a lot of the people of his age and class and background. We're anti semitic and so- Churchill clashed the whole time because of his his attempts and desires to promote the interests of the Jewish. You have a surprising footnote where one man observes it. Winston likes the Jews too much. Yes. It's at least two fond of the mind. Yes. That's right. That was saved by. One of his supporters in in may nineteen forty the the the one thing that he didn't like about Winston Churchill was that Chechen like Jews questioning how did we get to may have nineteen forty Churchill having all these members of cabinet along with members of parliament along with the British public thinking that the way forward is to surrender or negotiated an armistice and that requires us to dip into the years when he was in the wilderness, he becomes a member of government in the nineteen twenty. She becomes chancellor dick sector by his like his father in the late nineteen twenties into the crash into the catastrophe of the stock market crash. And he's thrown out of government. He falls away, and he leaves cabinet. Nobody wants to deal with him will they they lost the general election, and then he resigned from the shadow cabinet. Of course, you know, we're we've got the raw we responsible for India. And so you must never never take. Away the Indian aspects of British politics. Empire. Yes. And the crown of the empire the key to the empire. Once you lose India. The rest of the empire doesn't really make much sense is understanding of the empire is everything you say that he made the empire. His secular religion even during the period of the wilderness all during nineteen thirties. What does that mean? Well, he wasn't a Christian in any normal sense. He in the five point two million words that he spoke in the six point one million words that he wrote he didn't mention the where Jesus Christ at any stage. But he did believe in an almighty, although it seems very much that the primary duty of the almighty was to take care of Winston chat show. The other thing he believed in was the British empire. The idea that the people of Britain who had created this empire, which at the time stretch around a fifth of the world's land surface were had a duty to make the lives of the natives. The British empire better. And and to protect them from attacks from any other empire. And so he felt very much that what he was doing was the the will of the almighty almost so. An understanding of the empire was everything to him. And therefore India represented the part of the empire that he could not lose or everything would tumble apart. And of course, he had personally fools as you mentioned earlier in your instruction in the North West Frontier, he fought against the three D And Pathein and Talib tribesmen. And he fought the dervishes in the Saddam. And of course, he say food in South Africa. So he had actually been on the frontiers of the empire and. Shed a bit of blood for them during the nineteen thirties. He is adamant at first hesitant. But once nineteen thirty six comes and Hitler moves against the Rhineland. He's adamant there's something wrong in Germany earlier than that that really nineteen thirty three. And he has Hitler takes when Hitler became January thirty three when he became chancellor in January. Exactly. But also he'd been to Germany in nineteen thirty two he read he was one of the first people to in Britain to read Mein Kampf. And so he explicitly to hit leaves the first person to spot for the danger that he was much earlier than any of the other British politicians of the era, partly of course, as we mentioned earlier about his Phyliss embolism because it gave him an early warning system because he could see the Nazis and Hitler for what they were almost meets Hitler in nineteen. Thirty four and it doesn't happen. Am nine hundred eighty two thirty s I though it was before he became channels. Yes. He was on Churchill was writing a biography of his great ancestor who we mentioned earlier John Churchill first, you could move and he was going around the battlefields, and he was in Munich at the same time that Hitler was in Munich and the the press could tree puts ham. Stay. Asked whether or not church would like to meet Hitler said. Yes. And but it never happened because Hitler thought that church was has been and would never be heard over again by history book. Yes. Don't ask famous men or infamous men prediction Churchill walking with destiny when we come back..

But you're saying, okay, that's cool. But coil. Let's just admit it for what it is. It's still a gimmick. What if I just want to watch the episode of black mirror, and I don't want to deal with all this bullshit was going on and good point. I know I don't know what you thought about store Martin. But I not looking definitely not the strongest episode of that. That's the thing. I thought that when it was all set and done if you just laid it out without the gimmick. It would have been a mediocre episode of the show and you so you're right. But that's also the thing that does work with it is that it plays. It's not the best episode as a standalone, but they did design it to work with with the interactivity. Yeah. Yeah. It does a fine job of that. Yeah. I mean, because that's that's what I liked about it that you know, you have a character who an forget the guy's name. He was in fine Whitehead. He was Dunkirk. Thank you. You know, like that his character is trying to decide if he's hearing voices or not, and I don't want to say anything, but they you plan along with this adds to his his paranoia. And I thought that there was a great thing to do for something that relies so they obair where a very much well aware that, you know, this is the whole thing that people have been looking at is decide what this character does for the story. They made their part of the store they wrote that into the character. And it's Taylor around care to possibly being controlled by the bureau going crazy. In if you notice with the if you watch this, you gotta know you're going to notice how fast things move even the Tyler itself is kind of a reference to going down the rabbit hole bandit, snatched snatches a creature from Alice in wonderland. That's right. Yeah. And Peter neural illustration right there, but you know. Very probably titled because you are continuously frantically going down this rabbit hole with this character trying to side. What is the right decision to make? But like how they made it how quickly flow it is. So frantic that it does add to this person actually going crazy any work that in well with the decisions that you have to make form and also you keep doing things over and over again which adds to this person losing his mind for the tone that they've that they've developed here. In the flow that they have gone with the with which again is very fast, very insane. Almost almost the time travel element to it. I thought for me that's that worked. Well. And here's the thing that really keeps from getting to darker. Going in and pushing you away from what they're doing here because it doesn't it may know that they're trying something they don't depend on. What path you take? They don't take themselves too. Seriously. I ended on the story where what I chose. I laughed out loud with the path that I took it got it got so crazy with with what I did it turned into a comedy. Yeah. Same here. And I didn't like that. You didn't see a love that man. I laughed so hard when they did that and it starts early. And it kept draw me in. Adding to the comedy element that was going on.
