Isaiah Washington Talk About His New Movie Corsicana
"Isaiah. It's a real pleasure as always and I know that this film has been kind of a dream of yours to launch from the ground up. Talk a little bit about what makes this film different from perhaps the kind of routine fair that Hollywood puts out. Why are you excited about this film? I must say about the film is that it actually, for me, and I don't shy away from this. It actually is a godsend. I did not go into cross account originally prepared to direct this movie. Although, for my entire career, I always knew that the producer, the anonymous one, was the one that was actually building a house, that actually followed the blueprint and built a house on the ground up and actually would actually participate in net profit participation indefinitely. So my goal was always to be a producer. Never to be a director. And here's why. I thought that I wasn't worthy. I had already worked with Spike Lee. He was my God at the time. You know, he gave me this career for a time and set me up and Hollywood. We got the attention of Clint Eastwood. It was also considered to me I'm a huge fan that was my God. Michael Abd, Steven Soderbergh, Warren Beatty. I got spoiled early on in my career, watching these men call directors and they're great DPs, but unbeknownst to me. I was sitting at the table of greatness and got a chance to be a student up directing.
"eastwood" Discussed on Animal Radio
"Felt really bad for these cats. Why does it seem like the magician felt that these animals were all okay in the environment with no sunlight? He even says they were very gentle and one of them actually takes a swipe at him. You know, I think it has to do a lot with ego and I think that, you know, he just there is a disconnect between he feels there his family, but you would never treat your family like that. You would never keep your kid in a bathroom all day long and not let it go outside and play and have a natural life. So I think, you know, I think it's a disconnect of not believing that animals are, you know, have the right rights that humans do and there's a bit of an ego thing. I'm sure he's very, you know, he's a popular magician and Branson and he thinks of himself as quite the man. And I think he just kind of it's all about him dominating these animals. I'm not quite, I think there's definitely a psychology to it. And I'm not a psychologist, so I'm just kind of, you know, speaking my own opinion, but it's definitely there's something there's something kind of off there. There's a disconnect between him and the animal. So your goal was to go in perhaps and get one of these animals out. Yeah, our goal was we wanted to go in and see, I mean, our goal in the show is always to go in and be helpful. You know, we're not trying to go and ruin people's lives and we're not the cops, and we don't have authority to do that. We come there to see their stories talk to them, figure out if we can be helpful if possibly relocate or rescue any of the animals that they have. And this guy, you know, we had heard he's been cited a few times by the USDA. There's some, there's some public records of things that haven't gone on that are quite up to par. So our idea was to go and ask him if we could relocate one of the cats. Because one of them specifically is very, very agitated, very upset. You actually see it in that episode. It's the banging against the plastic, the plastic plexiglass and the walls and pacing and very, very upset cad. So we thought, you know, maybe he would allow us to relocate this one cat and free up some of the space, too, so that maybe he could make these enclosures a little bigger. And just kind of see if we could be helpful at all, but he didn't really want our help. Let's talk about you. Were there when you were growing up with dad, were there in animals around the house? Did you have him? Yeah, I've always loved animals. I'm a huge animal lover and that's kind of how this show came about was that I wanted to find a way to take my passion for helping animals and nurturing animals and make it into something that is educational and entertaining. So yeah, I had everything. We were actually we weren't allowed to have dogs and cats because my dad is and my brother were very allergic to dogs and cats. I had everything. Yeah. He's actually very allergic to horses and so people get very upset to hear that, because I hate to burst your bubble, but he's actually really funny. When he was on set, he was on set with a lot of horses, most of the time. Yeah, I think he had to have a shot and inhalers and all sorts of that was back in the late 60s too. So I don't know what kind of stuff they had, but I know he would literally just jump on and do his scene and then hop off and try not to even touch the hole. So I'm bursting to Hollywood magic people there. We have to go back and look at an old movie and see if his eyes are all watery. Did he have dogs? Or was he allergic to dogs? No, yeah, we did have a dog and then the dog passed away and we never got another one because we felt that, you know, the allergy problem. So I have pet rats. We had rabbits. I had fish for anything you could possibly imagine. I even had hermit crabs. So I kind of like anything I could, you know, mother and nurture. I got that. What is dad think of this show? You know, he hasn't seen it yet. We're doing a little premiere in LA. You know, it hasn't actually aired yet. It airs Tuesday night and it's on NatGeo wild and he hasn't seen it, but we're having a little premiere in LA and I think he's going to come. So he'll get a chance to see his son.

Why Do These Modern Male Actors Like Jordan Elsass Need Mental Breaks?
"Clint Eastwood never needed a mental break. Isn't that something? John Wayne never need lamento but Walter Matthau, Telly Savalas. I can go on and on. Clark Gable. Jimmy Stewart. These guys went to war. These guys fought as fighter pilots in war. Well, can't do movies, got a little World War II and kill some crowds and japs. And they came back and made movies. No one said, I need a break. I need a break. I can't find my mark and see where my light is. I just need a break. What does it say about us as a society? What does it say about the men in this business? Who just need to be pampered and coddled? Unbelievable. So the latest guy who needs a break is Jordan l-sats. Now, I don't really know this dude. I don't watch the show on The CW network called Superman & Lois. It's about to start its third season. I never watch anything on The CW. He's a 20 year old kid. And he's played Jonathan Kent on the network show that takes place in the Arrowverse and suddenly he said, you know what? I'm struggling with my mental health. He put this up in a cameo posted to Twitter
Actor Nick Searcy Joins Dinesh to Talk About His Latest Film
"Guys, I'm happy to welcome back to the podcast award winning actor and producer Nick sir C you know him for his role in best picture winner, the shape of water. He's been in the Oscar nominated Moneyball and castaway and fried green tomatoes and runaway jury. He's also the course played the costarring role on the hit TV series, the FX series called justified, and he teamed up with filmmaker Chris burgard to make a terrific film about January 6th called capital punishment. We're gonna talk about that. Hey Nick, welcome to the podcast. Thanks for coming on. You are just telling me that you have your in a film that daily wire has just released. It's a western tell us about that one. Yeah, it's a western called terror on the Prairie, and I play the title role. I'm the terror. And that's kind of why I still look like Gabby Hayes a little bit. It's a real real throwback western and just a terrific experience, a great people with Gina Carano and Dallas Sonya and the daily wire people. It was great to make a movie with the where for once I wasn't outnumbered being a conservative on the set. And I know you're saying that the kind of old style western that we thought was extinct that Hollywood won't go near anymore. It's been revived in a kind of a new form. Tell us a little bit about how does this compare to the classic westerns with Gregory Peck and Clint Eastwood and so on. Well, it's really more of a throwback to the peckinpah westerns of the 70s. It's a little bit more like wild bunch than it is like the searchers because it's pretty bloody. There's quite a few crimes, let's say, in the movie and it's unflinching. And so I would say it's probably an R rated for violence type of
Politics: It Ain't Personal, It's Just Business
"One of the things that I learned from you a little bit, but also I had known coming into this because from my background is people know, there's a certain time you have to use an especially with politics and I think it would be a good idea for Republicans, Democrats, anybody in between in campaigns that in the especially in the last weeks of a campaign or even in the first weeks of a campaign to remember the adage of Clint Eastwood, it ain't. Personal, it's just business. And because the motion side, we're going to come back and talk about some other things. But let's get the last four or 5 days. Isn't it? Describe how tough it is in those last couple of weeks to keep the emotion out of decisions that you need to make in those last 14 to 21 days coming into an cycle. So the toughest thing in campaign does, you know, these campaigns are tough, they're grinding, as you know, as any candidate that's run for office knows. When you get down to crunch time and you get down to the 7 or 8 day period, which is what we're in right now, you're tired, you're stressed. There's not enough hours in the day to accomplish what all you want to accomplish. And so it's very tough to keep the emotions out. I mean, for anybody that's been in this business for any length of time, they'll tell you, it's one of the toughest things, one of the toughest time periods there is. Now it's also, it's also, you know, the time in the campaign where you can really see the light at the end of the tunnel. So you know, you know, you're going to find out on election day, how you did. I mean, running campaigns and elections, being candidates, being consultants, being on a campaign team is unique. It's not like you can watch film on Tuesday, figure out what you did wrong and go have another election, the following Tuesday. And then, you know, and have a 16 game season, right? I mean, you know, depending on how long the election is, I mean, you know, they can be a year and a half a year and 9 months long. You have one game day. And so everything that you have done up until that point, you know, is to make sure you maximize what you're doing on

Any sort of any story that stuck out to you that was really like, wow, that sort of encapsulates what this event is about or should be about. Well, I don't know if it encapsulates what the event should be about, but it's a great antidote. I think he was 21 and he was in the army at four door, which is up there near Carmel. Him and his body snuck down like 1951 or 52 or something. And his body snuck down during the tournament. Hop to fence, snuck into the clambake. And ate all of food, hobnobbed with whatever celebrities were there at the time. And this was before my dad was, you know, he was pumping gas and working at a gas station before Clint Eastwood was Clint Eastwood. And so it's really it always hearing stories like that are really quite interesting. Yeah, man, the love for your father is it's got to be so talk to me a little bit about how when you're driving around AT&T and you see after all these years, you know, he's still the legendary Clint Eastwood. It's never once wavered from the time that he first was seen on screen till now. Isn't that just an incredible thing to be able to see how many people are still just so obsessed with him and his aura and his story and just he and for me, I mean, I'm like, I'm 28 years old and I'm like, the man that you always want to be as Clint Eastwood. It's never changed. There's never been that next guy. He's still the guy. Well, thank you for that. Yeah, no, he is a testament, man. He's an inspiration to me daily, just his work ethic, his..

"What I would say is like, I do listen a lot when I listen to other shows if I listen to Rogan or somebody that thinks really good, I try to pay attention from self improvement standpoint and try to pick up things that I think that they do well. Even like when that interview went out when Oprah fucking interviewed Adele, Markle Meghan Markle and prince, what is it, Harry? Will you marry? Harry. Harry. And everybody was going crazy about how good of an interview were. I remember I went through a watch that like two or three times. I was like, all right, I want to, in that standpoint, I want to try to pick some shit up. So I think you can probably try to get better at it, but I don't know, because Trent, I remember our first guy Alex Schneider Jan's like, that's probably the first interview I've ever we've ever done, and it's just, you kinda just like, I think this is how it's gonna go. And then you just and it wasn't, it wasn't a disaster. If there were two mes in that room, it would have been a disaster. 'cause the ability, what I've noticed is the ability to be thinking about the next thing while the person is talking about the last thing that you ask them, that is the gift. And I do not possess that. I'm always focusing on every single word and then when they're answer ends, I'm like, all right, now what do we do? I will say that's the biggest challenge for me because I always try to have another I always try to have the next question ready, but also you don't want to sacrifice or skip out on what they're saying because if they say something really interesting, you want to try to follow up or you want to obviously digest what they're saying so that you could bring it up later or reference it or whatever. And I will say that, especially early on, that was a big weakness of mind that I'd be so fucking nervous about making sure when they stopped talking that it's not just dead silent that sometimes I wouldn't listen to what they're saying. And it's interesting. It's an interesting thing. These are the things that I think about because that's Scott Eastwood interview is a different interview than we normally do.

"Apparently shot 61, I think Monday. So that's part of the world playing really well. He's in Arizona. He's an ASU guy. I think he really wants to win this golf tournament. So a lot of signs are pointing towards John rom that's easy to say is the betting favorite. Britt, way to go out and Riggs. Well, you, that's what I'm hearing. Riggs you set off the top, you mentioned that Brooks Koepka won this term in last year, and that is true, but this was Jordan Spieth's term at last year. That was everyone's main takeaway last year. That's 61 on Saturday. That feels like so long ago. We've come, there's been so much that has happened with Spieth in terms of his golf game, even since then, that like, that is what's cool about this tournament. It's like, yeah, there's a guy. There's a lot surrounding it, right? Like there's the 16th fold. There's the partying. There's a bachelor parties. There's the defending champ, but then you can have a guy like Jordan Spieth pop up and really like rekindle his career. Like, that was the, that was the turning point, and then he had, obviously, a pretty damn good after that. I think he's up to 13th in the world. Obviously had a good finish at AT&T should have won probably, but that's that's the type of stuff that can happen and there's gonna be a lot of eyeballs on this tournament. So like viral golf stuff like that almost always happens at some point during this tournament. Yeah, you're right. That was when that was when it really was Jordan Spieth is back. He pointed me around 17 and made that put. He pointed across the guy on the ground and had the whole thing going so you're right, Trent, that was remembered Brooks Koepka. I mean, it really didn't feel like it was broke koepka's tournament until he hold out on 17 with that little chip and then I was like, oh fuck, he's gonna kinda win this whole tournament. I walked by Spieth yesterday he was signing autographs. I didn't really know what to do. I don't know if I'm supposed to try to say hi to that guy and he was just, I was inside the ropes. He was kind of, there's a little area between the putting green and the actual driving range where a bunch of fans congregate in speed's great with fans so he was kind of interacting with fans. I think he was sitting on a grassy, but either way, he was like there with everybody. Maybe taking selfies. And it was just me and him. Like inside that ropes for probably 50 yards..

"And those are just two don siegel directed by don siegel in the same year. I know what you think. The fires six shots so only five tell you the truth and all this excitement i kind of lost track myself but the forty four magnum the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off. Get to ask yourself one question. Do i feel lucky. do you punk. And if dirty harry is all these potency as exemplified by that big gun you know the point to everybody feel lucky You know make day gun mean the beguiled is about and being castrated you know. He's sort of systematically splayed out cut up his his his legs cut off a man in a hot hothouse women and again the narcissism of every woman in the civil war era wants to jump clint. Which fair enough it gets leveraged against his humiliation is complete humiliation and come up and defeat. You know i mean. It's a movie where he really never kind of has the upper hand and the whole film in the beguiled is kind of the spectacle of his. You know his abasement. And that's why when coppola remade it. She sophie a couple of remakes. The guy with a lot of smarts. And a lotta hindsight and a lot of skill and a clear subversive agenda and colin. Farrell's a great actor in some ways. More resourceful after the it but it doesn't work it only works. If it's clint on the table you know even before. It's like late clinton in nineteen seventy-one dirty harry. It's taken apart and killed by a bunch of women is Pretty amazing even pairing with play misty for me in the same year. There's a woman who wants to cut. Clint eastwood up. And in terms of segel's filmmaking the guy was just a a pro. there's a reason that eastwood co dedicated unforgiven to him an sergio. Leoni siegel is simple. Where is florid you know siegel is left to right leonis all detours loggers and whatever else but He taught you know quinta lot. He used him as a star but as well as any as any filmmaker did. And i'm pretty sure everyone listening to this. Podcast seen dirty harry. If you haven't seen the beguiled. I don't know what's service it's on but it's amazing and You should watch it. Now pray film. I like the coppola remake as well. Actually it's a little bit of a subversion of the story but not too much Chris why don't you give us your number three which is also in the nineties cannon. Yeah and it's probably. I mean along with unforgiven. My my real life kind of introduction to clint eastwood was in the line of fire which is directed by wolfgang petersen. And i think is the best acting eastwood's overdone. Maybe it's kind of silly. And maybe. I'm giving malkovich way too much credit in my mind but i like when i last watched this movie i was rather blown away by the gentleness of eastwood's performance. This is a broken down. Secret service.

"This kind of like i. I would almost say that. This is the closest thing that clint eastwood would ever be. You could say like was kind of malecki. I would say it's it's just a really wondrous kind of observant kind of comic crime caper about about clint eastwood's character is an expert bank robber posing as a preacher again and it takes place in the sort of a the great plains more than the american west but is utterly gorgeous movie to look i also features Jeffrey lewis george kennedy and is just a really really really great example of the kind of genre movies that were coming out of like the new hollywood at that time so i would highly recommend this. And it's a really really great performance. And of all of the kind of old clint with young whippersnapper foil. Clint eastwood and jeff bridges is about as good as it gets. Oscar nominated for his work. Jeff bridges great. Great movie if you haven't seen it it was recently reissued on blu. Ray should track that down. I believe it is available on. Hbo max right now is not. It is yeah okay. That's a great one so my number four. I kinda wanna talk in tandem with with your number two atom if you're interested in kind of moving up quickly because we've mentioned on siegel a couple of times really. I think both signature collaborator and a mentor. In a big way for eastwood somebody who he really looked up to who i think helped him unlock his star persona who taught him about the mechanics and the efficiency of action film. Making my number four is escape from alcatraz which i think is not unlike cry macho very well could be a silent film and feels as indebted to you know brisson as it does to american prison movies but is also just eat. The pinnacle of lean efficient movie star charisma and repulsive storytelling. What you see on the label is what you get in the movie. It is a movie about escaping from alcatraz. You most locked down prison in the world and it's captivating and clint probably has fewer than one hundred lines of dialogue in the whole movie but he's at the center of every frame and he is the center of every piece of action and siegel exit siegel. Terrific filmmaker I'll at adam talk about him a little bit more in depth. But i agree with you chris. I love watching clint in movies even if he hasn't directed them. And even if it's not even necessarily a riff on his persona you know this is a movie about a man who's locked down and is trying to get free and that's really ultimately all the stories about is but what prison does to people how they formed communities but ultimately that they all just wanna get out and be free so escape from alcatraz one of the most honestly re watchable and enjoyable soothing action movies ever made at what are your number two pairings. I just got me thinking that east. Most use movies are about our titled for their about. There's not a lot of metaphorical. Titles in their fifteen. Seven to paris is about fifteen seventy two paris richard jewel. And so on you know no no no space for metaphor in clint's universe. It's amazing to me my my number two. You saw me call an audible there in the docks. He responded to that very nicely. I mean i had dirty. Harry there and i was like well. How can you not have the beguile. Especially since i wrote about it.

"Child governor hit. I go quail hunt at least once a year but he knows and i know that when luger draw. This is my shit understand. Oh yeah. I got that. This came out right after unforgiven. And i remember just kind of like i try the idea of trying to follow up. A unforgiven was like a tremendously difficult concept to me even even as a kid watching it unforgiving was probably like my favorite movie my first favorite movie and a lot of ways and then i remember just being so deeply moved by this movie partially because it was so unlike unforgiven in so many ways because it went away from the places that you would go if you thought oh. I'm seeing the the next foam from the guy made unforgiving so really taught me how to challenge expectations. I guess and i would also just say that we've talked a couple of times about eastwood's facility with actors. Who are already really good at what they're doing. This is my favorite costner performance. I think yeah. I mean this is sort of cost costner. Cresting the hill as the great american white american movie star of the early ninety s. Right field of dreams and jfk and the bodyguard. This these movies are variable quality but the star personas kind of undeniable and such a pure part for him too because he's really good at projecting kind of like wisdom and moral authority which he has in this movie until he doesn't and the extent to which he loses that late in the film. Note that the bush character kinda comes apart is pretty heroic acting. I think by costner. Also stages quickly that it's got to be the best movie that ends dramatically with the character getting like need the balls for what they do and again. It's like the crowd pleasing part of clinton's indivisible from sometimes the more refined sensibilities but their stuff imperfect world in the fbi truck with you know clinton laura dern whitford. That's you know. John a question of being good or bad. It's broad you know. It's broad audience. Fred like almost to a fault but again it's it's part of the poetry of of the movie and some of the critics who i really admire. Think that that's like really one of the best eastwood movies like that. When you get down to cases this is one of the best movies that he has i. I wouldn't disagree. I told i agree with you. I love it and it did have that. I was thirteen. When i first saw this feeling and this was as i recall a a frequent. Hbo rerun if you had hbo growing up. You could catch this at any given time but I will say quite a few of his movies especially from this era honor available on hbo accent. It's kind of awesome to be able to like dial up any clint eastwood movie from from unforgiven on. I'm not sure when the agreement starts with him but yeah yeah..

"Okay let's do our lists because we're getting on in years ourselves number five favorite. Clint eastwood film. Now we are accounting for both films. That clinton has directed films that he is starting adam. You've got a barn burner at number five. I'm gonna let you make your this is. We're going to go old school. Clear out for adam. Whole shot clock. I don't truly believe those. But i believe it enough to make you guys talk about this movie again because i can never not think about it which is fifteen seventeen to peres. Which has become a bit of a film twitter rallying point and a bit of a mean because of the scene where the guys just ordered you lotto and which is in some ways the least effective of the star quadrille because american sniper. Whatever else you say about it. And i don't like it as a great performance by bradley cooper definitely sully has tom hanks as the conscience of america. Which typecasting paul. Walter hauser's incredible and richard jewel. Which is the only eastwood movie. So far. I've actually reviewed for ringer. And i tried to give the due to his performance because amazing fifteen hasn't have actress ended has not actor so it's a real test of the one taken lunch style. Plus they're playing themselves in a way that's not fully successful. But then who am i to judge because they are playing themselves recreating things that happen to them. So if i say. None of the skills plausible. I think the jokes on me. It's like a red at mit asshole threat. It's like am. I the asshole for thinking that these guys playing themselves doing things they did in the places that they did the mark convincing. That can't be it. It's got to be me. That movie is so interesting. It's like something that they didn't afford audie murphy movie. you know. it's like a war hero. Plays himself i mean. It's not bradley. Cooper is chris kyle. It's these guys as those guys. Then there's that scene at the end where they're getting their medals and they're in it but they you know like the leader of france is an actor because they couldn't get him back but everything else is the real busy busy guy young but they but they got everyone except the one the medals on their chest. And the way that the docu fictional style completely disappears in the train and it becomes a really proficient action movie. You know that is the weirdest damn movie. And i saw with a friend who does not like clint eastwood and she was mad at me for taking her to which also someone is. Everyone was this podcast but afterwards we were having coffee. She's just like ever see a weirder movies in that. Have you ever seen a weirder movies in that. And i'm like. I can't remember the last time and so in some ways i wanna give due to this late. Politically contentious and also by a younger generation of mostly male critics like obsessively deeply beloved cleanse. The clint stands the god. Clint side of this social media sphere we inhabit. And i find the fact that fifteen seventeen to para seems to to to bring those guys out there something in it the strangeness and the weirdness of it is is is is powerful and i have re watched and i have not done that for any of the other three or four eastwood movies around it so you know like is it actually like better than i don't know the good the bad and the ugly no of course not but it's on it's on my list this this is quite a flex..

"Contradiction in that movie. But like this incredible numbness. I've always thought it's amazing that the character in zodiac at ruffalo plays based Or to both bullet end dirty. Harry were based on him and bullet. Steve mcqueen is so self doubting scared and worried that all this exposure violence making him numb and he's a tragic thing for a minute and then dirty carries just like totally totally internalized Of anger if anything. It's anger at the people who don't let rock and roll you know and that That people said it was a non-performance or a blank performance. It's an incredible performance. It's an a in dirty harry. I think as much as man with no name. It solidifies quintas a kind of anti hero. Except i don't know if the movie has the same ambivalence about him that that may be it should and by the time of the sequels it becomes the people to just cheer. I mean dirty. Harry becomes a franchise and that's i think. We're a lot of the critical impatience in scorn that he underwent kind of comes from people. Like you know what this is. Really kinda tiresome. You are a version of the sequel. Itis that's wrecking other. Parts of of hollywood. Like he was not really those those did not help him get taken seriously in the period that he was turning them out even though tight rope in an impact a really interesting really interesting movies. Yeah i think i. I have a lot of appreciation for the second and the third dirty harry films which i'll probably talk about me. Get to my list. And there's a reason for that and it speaks to. I think a lot of the conversation we already had about him and his reflection on his own persona but okay. So let's just say for the sake of conversation. There are six or seven kind of signature archetypes right. There's the the the lone gunman who comes to town. There's the cop seeking kind of justice. There's the stoic soldier. There's the the the conman the crook the kind of the near dwell. There's the cranky old man which were very familiar with these days. And there's the kind of nobleman of those types which would which clint you guys like the most chris. What about you. i'm still. I'm still a cowboy at heart. I actually like liked different versions of all of these movies but for the most part like i think that his he's he's one of the three or four best western filmmakers and one of the two or three best western actors. Adamant about you. I mean again. This will come up in our lists. But when i think about the onscreen eastwood too i like the most. It's ones and i'm not trying to be contrary. But like they kinda slip in between the seems like i love his performances neural group together in the mid nineties. I love clint where he still kind of witty and playful and physically up to it. But there's this this undercurrent of roofless and wisdom regardless of genre. I group things. Like in the line of fire with bridges of madison county and absolute power like does imperfect world like. It seems hard to reconcile those movies because they're all very different. But that's the eastwood..

"Left alone but they both have this way of leveraging the incredible fame they have as these figureheads and has these these famous faces in these personas leveraging that again soon the kind of work to do which sometimes doesn't have much to do with the persona. I mean with eastwood i. It sometimes does. And sometimes doesn't with alan sometimes dozen some has dozen but i think of both of them who kind of bloomed as icons and who signed there forever checks in the seventies right. That was when the relationship started with. You guys can make a movie every year and you know they allen got kind of academy acceptance and eastwood sort of had blockbuster acceptance but it's also true that eastwood as a leading man dries up and becomes more selective aside from the dirty harry movies after the seventies i mean the clinton in the aid is a few movies. Were clint eastwood. Appear as you know. Because he's in it because he's popular but he really at that point is just wanna make a movie every year and even the other actors directors who we might compare him to. Nobody did that. You know i mean. Warren beatty makes movies every four or five years. 'cause he wants them to all be be big. He's just leave me alone. make a movie. Every eighteen months is not a new phenomenon. That has always been there yet. Baby i feel like often is trying to subvert his persona. Clint is like getting closer and closer with the magnifying glass. On who he is and what he represents you know. It's it's an interesting contrast in the way that they approach those things. I mean he also represents like all of these archetypes across movie history. He obviously is in part when he starts making these moves. Leoni obvious during basically his summers off between rawhide travels to italy and starts making the man with no name trilogy and forges really the anti hero. Chris i heard you and bill talking on the rewatch ables. Recently about the origins of the anti hero might have been on the fight club conversation you were having and all i can think of was it. Actually it starts with clinton you know there are there are men cove yes. There are new are film stars and bogart in the handful of people who do bad things but also we root for them throughout movie. History jimmy cagney as like this too but specifically the men with no name trilogy i think essentially confirmed the anti heroes behavior in that movie so so violent and so indiscriminate you know what i mean there. There's a certain moral component to a lot of the violence. He does out but as watching for a few dollars more or less eight..

"The funny thing about clinton is a clean was late bloomer. Clint didn't become clint eastwood until he was twenty. Nine years old. He kicked around hollywood in bit parts and playing an extra and working as a contract player in studios until he got. The party radiates in in rawhide and that is really what kind of kicked him off. But we think about some of these people. You mentioned elvis elvis very young when he became famous a lot of the the iconic figures of american memory got started with us. The beatles were incredibly young when they got started in liverpool that the the these historic figures often feel like they're jet streamed into youth culture and then grow through youth culture. Clint eastwood kind kinda grouchy grumpy. You know kind of that debt. Grimace that we know so well started at an early age or older age. The most of the time that we see which also makes him kind of fascinates like he's been old forever and that's another thing that i think is a part of his character is not necessarily wisdom but kind of like i've had it up to here with this bullshit. Feeling that he tends to emit in a lot of his work it imbued him with like a little bit of like like folklore right. Because i think i remember which producer was commenting on the fact that this is a guy who looks like. He's done other jobs besides acting like that. He's worked on construction. I think that. I think sandra locked once mentioned that he would like to have you believe that. He's like fought in korea but he was a lifeguard during the korean war at a at a at an army ford. So it's like he kind of allows this you know kind of air to like. That's a guy who's really done. Some things chopped down some trees in his time and then he just did this sissy work of acting once it was once it was time to like kick his feet up a little bit but the right thing is amazing because in some ways i feel like most of his career is a reaction. Ride is a reaction to the fact that they wouldn't let him direct ride reaction to the fact that he didn't stories and ride that the writing got bad and that his character was an interesting to him and so most of what he does. afterwards in. A lot of ways is rooted in this one time in his where he didn't have total control yet but what he was absolutely but he leveraged whatever whatever the star persona and those spaghetti westerns was again. This is what this is. What happens when you're really truly famous. You know he. He leveraged that celebrity against very modest filmmaking ventures. I mean we're talking about filmmaking at a different time different registers of modesty that'd be there weren't giant conglomerate intellectual properties to go strike out for nineteen seventy-one either but he's a big enough star that he can make a small little movie. Play misty for me right. That's going to get made because people will buy the ticket to see him in it even if he's not playing the man with no name go see him in something else and the fact that he directs that movie sort of incidental to its popularity. And that's what you have in. The first stretch of eastwood is director is movies where his his name is. A director is incidental really whether the movie seen by an audience or not..

"Not however much wants to withhold or say at doesn't matter i mean it's a function of it. I'm not using this word negatively. I'm just using objective function of his narcissism ego. This ego he exists to be out there and ego narcissism can sometimes be indivisible from humility. Like i'm watching him in this film and he has the romance with a woman who by movie standards and even by the standards of the characters life is older. I mean she's a grandmother. She nine ninety one years old now and she is one of two very attractive calmly. You know late middle age mexican women in this movie. Who's throw themselves at clint the same way. That has those threesomes in the mule over the girls at the drug dealer mansion. Like party with this guy you know. He plays a ladies man in that film. Hey and clint eastwood is a ladies man. You want the handsome people in the history of american movies and his charisma. His sexual charisma has power is very very real. In other words you try being. Clint eastwood not have an ego. You try being would not interject yourself into the texture and fabric of american life. But that's why people can't leave that stuff alone. He's not a private political prisoners. Public political person and those politics drives some people including me sometimes nuts even though it probably shouldn't they probably shouldn't i think i think it's very difficult to navigate specifically the political aspect because it feels like He is getting in the fight and getting in the conversation in a similar kind of mild provocation. That a lot of his films are and it's a little bit. I'm ultimately disinterested in what his specific political party affiliation is or how he governed carmel in california. I don't really want to you. Know analyze that specifically but because he's a filmmaker that has driven a significant amount of political introspection. I think in american movies. I think it's worth at least acknowledging that he can't stay of the fray just like he can't not make films he he's consistently participating in the culture of our lives in a way that very few people have been able to do across six decades and his his relationship to two women and female stars is also very fraud. I certainly notice the same thing. You did adam. Chris and i were laughing a bit about that yesterday. That these you know very beautiful women who are decades younger than him for i would say borderline inexplicable reasons or like i need you to have sex right now. Right you stood i need. I need this ranch. Hand's here is a specific scene in cry. Baccio where you're just like. Am i. Am i tripping on lsd. Right like what is happening. And it's also a noted to chris yesterday that is almost the organizing narrative action of consecutive films in the early seventies. You know if if you look at play misty for me. Your high plains drifter i mean. These movies are basically set into motion by the idea that a woman is so desires. Clint so deeply that they will go to grave action that will trigger a series of events. That will give us a movie and so he does. This is important to him to be seen this way but also because he ultimately is seen this way in real life so you have this similar. Mirroring effect that we're talking about here..

"I mean that you reduce the stuff to its barest. Simplest essence parts of crime. Much i wouldn't say unwatchable like it is kind of barely a movie. Yeah and yet. It contains the multitudes that john was each thing sean listed out is being about. I'm like you know that's actually true. It kind of is about those things in a way. That's also just so offhand. also. I can't recall which critic pointed this out but there are long stretches of the film in. It's not the first time he's done this in which there's just long stretches of clint driving just just on a journey. Maybe there's someone in the car. Maybe there's not the mule also featured long stretches of him driving and on the one hand it's like that's actually not terribly cinematic and a little bit dull to chris's point on the other hand it's such. It's such a load bearing metaphor. Yeah we're exactly. What clinton trying to say right now. Which is like. I'm still going. I'm just still on the move. I can't stop making these movies because it's really all i know how to do to survive. It's fascinating it's funny sean. You actually said like. I said to me yesterday that you were like the the scenes no dialogue are actually quite beautiful and you could with the exception of maybe one or two scenes here or there in the movie. Me cry macho as a silent film. I mean it's pretty obvious like this is a man. He's been given a task. He's driving south. He finds the boy puts the boy in the truck. They start to drive around. And it's that's like that that is just like a really obvious and very clearly told story. I sometimes wonder whether or not it's the engagement with the eastward. Miss mythos stick gives him his lake. Not as filmmaking reputation. Because it's not like i think of crony eastwood movies is being idea factories or incredibly verbose movies. I'm really racking my brain over the last couple of days trying to think of like what makes a clint eastwood movie. Like what is what are the quintessential like aesthetic qualities of clint eastwood movies. Like adam do you. Have you boiled that down in your head beyond like the iconography and beyond the interrogation of the eastwood myth. Like what are the things that make eastwood movies eastwood movies. The way we might say that about a pta movie or a tarantino movie. Well the thing with the two guys. You just mentioned anderson turn to neither neither of whom are remotely eastwood ian you. They're they're models reside elsewhere in the states and overseas. Although eastwood gave tarantino the palm door it was a bit of a passing of the torch maybe between his grudging canonization and the thing that came so fast so soon and so easy to tarintino right. Which is you know. Hey american violences profound man. I've been doing dirty harry movies for years. I didn't say that about me. But but you know when you're when you're asking what makes an eastwood movie. I mean i think that recently it's been a slow us and kind of Slow this isn't the right word..

"One of the more confrontational movies of seen in a really long time. Just because of the exact thing you're talking about is like you're never not aware of this guy being in his nineties and and this sort of state of his body and even even from the mule it looks like he's aged quite a bit. And when i was thinking about the circumstances under which he made this movie which is an approved vaccine cove era. And he's obviously an at risk gentlemen in his in his late in his later years. I can't help but feel like he felt like he had to do this before it was too late. You know what. I mean and that there was something about making this movie. Which is him saying. Like i will always have a place in a purpose which is basically what this character is searching for as long as i am behind a camera as long as i am making movies. Which is what. I've done for my whole adult life. I will always have a sense of purpose. A sense of worth sense of place. And that's what this kind of this guy. Mike is kind of looking for in his in his journey is like i've been kind of cast aside. I'm living in this house of memories and finally even if there's a lot of like questions be asked about the purpose of my journey. I'm giving a quest and right. And so i get that and i kind of really dug that part. There are large swaths of this movie. That i found almost borderline watchable by the same time you. You never really look away because it's it's still. Clint eastwood did either. You gentlemen happened to see. Pulse writers the card counter. Oh certainly adam. We saw the card counter. Because i saw it the other day later than you guys and the character in that talks about small scores. And don't make too much of a fuss and just you know. Don't get indebted to backers so deeply that you can't do what you want. And paul schrader who is himself emissary or avatars late style. Not as late as clint- i mean clinton's as late is so late it's early but but you know schrader. He's obviously making a movie but himself in his filmmaking. The card counter. It's about other things too. I was watching. This and i was thinking. Eastwood have made so many movies where he sort of humanized by a younger character. Another character put into a kind of mentorship role or toot our role. But those up trainees or those apprentices don't really exist in the american cinema because no one's making movies the way. Clint always has the great filmmakers. Who kind of exist. Maybe at his level of name wreckage. They're all doing their own thing. They don't betray eastwood's influence they might admire him and to some extent they may have internalized things at the way he makes movies but he's not really copied or emulated that much may because his style so kind of like just classical and four square that you're not really copying him..

Our pal adam naming and the most macho man. I've ever met chris ryan. Hello gentlemen there. What's going on man. I've been thinking about it for a couple of decades. And i do feel lucky. We feel lucky to have you here to discuss clint. i think. Let's just start with cry. Macho we're gonna talk about clinton tire career as a filmmaker as a movie star as a cultural figure as someone who has been on the wallpaper of our lives for many many years. But he's got a new movie. He's ninety one years old and he directed in starring in a new movie. I can't get over. It crotch is a movie about a nonagenarian ranch. Hand an x. rodeo star on behalf of his boss or ex-boss were benefactor of some kind travels to mexico in order to retrieve his boss's son who's played by an acronym cuarto monette and for various reasons. Maybe sentimental maybe financial needs to bring this kid back to the united states and they go on a bit of a journey of discovery of masculine reflection of romance of adventure of cockfighting. It's a very unusual movie. I will say ultimately. I liked this movie. But there's a lot to unpack here at start with you. what you think a cry macho. Very nice time cry. Macho this is like the thirtieth victory lap after unforgiven around eastwood's legacy And that's only semi sarcastically. I mean it's amazing to think that in nineteen ninety-two which predates i think the word think piece when they were actually just called articles essays. But you know the think peace would have been the nineteen. Ninety-two well clint eastwood. Pretty old. And he seems to be taking stock of the things he did in his personal life and his movie life in the ways in which they intertwine as a good. And let's give it the academy award for best picture and then we're done and then he just keeps working right sometimes have very high level. Sometimes i can cry macho not at a super high level but in very likable mode but in all these different movies and there are a couple subset of eastwood news at aren't about clint.

The Little Things Movie Review
"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.

The princeton played john maclean. He plead he played. I believe that was the character name but it was the same author.
