You can buy stranger things on dvd. Okay sure you can pay attention to physical media like that. We really interesting point there. J. to kind of what i was saying is it's like the thought process that brian saying it's people are going to net netflix. Bought this really the to this awesome movie. This awesome franchise came. Wait to watch on netflix. And then people are going to see eventually when they start doing the marketing out in theaters. And they're going to go. Oh wait thought. It was a netflix thing. And then like they said they're going to google it and see that. Oh it's out netflix's in three weeks and like oh all right. Well i'm going to wait for it to come out on netflix netflix movie. So it is interesting. That like netflix's buying it but not utilizing it as a platform exclusive. They're just still releasing them and then doing probably physical media releases so it is very interesting people. I think the people are going to general. Audiences are gonna have to do a little bit of Retraining of the brain. Not realizing that netflix is going to foray into the physical theaters. It'll be crazy to see how it does and if that affects its box office numbers just having that mentality. yeah. I can see it in three weeks. Yeah yeah no no absolutely absolutely like there's a part of me though. I think you're going to have like die. Hard like theatergoers. I really would like to see this on the big screen. The first one was such a fund the theatrical experience. Yeah like early was a great for. Yeah yeah you can buy stranger things that complete seasons one through three on. Dvd for forty four thousand nine amazon jay. How much we're just season. One fucking a is still never watched season three no. It's actually on my list. I i saw the season for trailer. And i'm like. I don't want to be such a curmudgeon. I do want to be able to keep up with is such a big pop culture phenomenon but yeah it's probably in the next month or so. I'm gonna bite the season for coming out for you to watch season three correct. I love i love. It was a return to form even with people that are in my camp where season to really just kinda fell flat. I heard that like she's three quite a lot. Flattish flash fly tiffany haddish flattish knives. Speaking to the casting has been crazy over the past few days saying and they did this with the first one we kept getting flurries of casting announcements for the first one. And i think it's just gonna continue to be like this over the next few weeks but we got we got the dave. Then we got ever norton. Then we got janelle monae and now most recently. We've got wanda vision star. Kathryn hahn is set to join this. Cast man this is. I mean jake were kind of like can netflix. Get the star power. I think this is this. Is this answering your question if they can get the star power or not. Are you thinking to yourself well right. Now they're still getting like kathryn hahn still kind of like she's hot off of wanda vision up and comer jomie. She's done annabel she's done. You know hidden hidden figures. She's done smaller things. Edward norton vary established. Dave batista still finding his bearings in like what he's doing the already. Think like this these first few now..

i'm going to present this largely without context that one of the sub editors to raise the suburbs is read the pages in the magazine to check for a rotter and and spelling mistakes and things like that and one of them came up to me based on a trailer talk that we did and said to me can you tell me what is thick with to seize main which followed one of the most excruciating hilarious conversations of my freshman career was able to explain it i mean i did my best thing with the aid of a pitcher of naked tunnel that's all i'm saying oh now i was gonna say the first thing you said was don't google it do not ogle thick that's wise words for all of us think as we go into this holiday season don't google thing especially on the work wifi oh oh yeah i mean in our work wi fi wouldn't matter like everything goes here but generally is it's not a good look should we have a question sure okay me with your question chris chris said last week we were trying to stick with christmas themed questions for the whole month of december because everything else in the world is too depressing and we can't deal with it and we're very ourselves in christmas this this week's question comes from uncast pets u. n. underscore casts a s. e. underscore tet heels it goes by tammy and he or she asks is probably she if you could choose one movie family to share christmas lunch with who would it be and the reagans from blue bloods don't count i'm pretty sure that last bit was aimed at chris rhys-jones film with us good points yesterday qualifies so dreadful but yeah maybe family who you would like to share christmas lunch with breath well when it comes to generally movie parents the ones that always out familiar stanley tucci and participants clocks and easy it's just the coolest chilliest chilliest parents in movie i think they put in a great spread that have like a pretty nice relaxed christmas day but that'd be very very interested in making sure so you have really good christmas but not an overbearing way like they'd just be super cool about it and most convenient flakes her between them so much and yeah ABC actually good example simple and they probably have some of these kids like set you up with or you know like move your career forward in some way they just feel like they'd be the kind of people who could give life advice and just sort of sort you out generally early and you'd be in that fabulous california wherever it was it looks identity kenny why it looks really nice i think that'd be a good cold flu pocketful of sunshine total pocketful of sunshine and i got i got sunshine being whatever it is you're being happy not sure say i i was thinking the same thing and i'll tell you why because last night i made the mistake of watching one of the net flicks christmas movies now they're all mistake this one was it's called christmas with review it's unbelievably dreadful even by the standards of the genre and i really want to make that clear you might think it can't be that bad it absolutely can an and so to kind of put on a pallet cleanser afterwards i actually put on julian julia and then skipped all the julie scenes so it was just julius pule merrill vision vision pure pure pure streep pure tucci just watch that so that would be my other unser i was thinking basically sunny tucci has to be involved somehow but my thought that is that's my other go to because then you julia child cooking christmas dinner for you know just julie charles burton meryl streep's julius streep's can you imagine how much it's fun that would be that would be amazing you probably get some songs in there as well i'll bet you would some abba mostly abbott for me christmas abba and food and no no no no no no no no you know full well you've been banned from playing in the office i come play who had james or knicker knicker in the office and then when they leave it's nonstop appa gold maybe abba more goals for someone who was born like at least four or five decades after abreu died and how how you are so obsessed with this that just that just good songs that just hit the there's no trying to explain abba gold it just is what it is almost literally beyond yesterday hey i can see how much it pains you to make that job he was real giveth and taketh away situation to answer this question who would choose i'd call i would i would relish the chance to have any male really not necessarily crisp with these stratford from ten things i hate about you need to get a kind of you know a lecture from the dad i think that would be great for failing now i think christmas with the corleones would be quite quite fun man who doesn't spend time with that family can never be a real man is not quote goes more or less okay i mean the food would be great the food be speaking of oh i'm sorry i'm coming back to the canal you know but i'm i'm i'm finding just the exact halfway point between the corleones and easy a right which is big nights stanley tucci and i think tony shillue if memory serves right as brothers who've run in his hallion in restaurant and they have to make this incredible huge discount was tom panel or something which is just enormous in his layers of everything from like boiled eggs to past the to meet to everything it just incredible it's about the size of football field and they make it in this restaurant like impress important people and it looks the most amazing food food ever that family yes christmas dinner bracingly just want someone to cook for you in really impressive way which i guess i didn't do something to cook christmas dinner for me yeah but like a good cook like a not like a big fancy cook really just just a generally great piece of food so good in terms of with my actual christmas plans it'll be a horrible family spend christmas with but i'm spending my christmas with the skywalker family can you imagine the drama if there was like a skywalker christmas family reunion union now it would just be awful amick force-feeding you apples using the force and you'd be like get off and there'd be sand everywhere for some going to be sounding and everything it just be awful it'd be awful and then you probably get like a roast met at one of those inflatable space cows and it would just honestly it will be the worst and solo be soaking in a corner can you didn't get the presence thirty one he wanted even if he did he would have decided they weren't on the other hand you might get to hang out with layer and so that alone would be enough come on looking laya SF especially for salty old luke and general leia that would be using in the like shit chat would be imagine rajin the amount of t that would be spilled speaking you couldn't even turn up he just full project into the dinner i can you e you've touched your food you'd i mean it just means there's more entertainment and more food i don't see a downside he'd be like green milk from a muggle something he he can do that and i will have the food you see and then you realize oh god it's a poll roasted pork roasted walk wow i wanted to be string apparently they are on the menu in some star wars yes yes ira reading this isn't expanding universe they they are a delicacy cosc- in some of the people do frick eighty walk this is the thing which is horrific apparently the you know the emperor decided you know we'll we're

the in the american african south like that was picked up from the europeans not vice versa maybe they picked up cannibalism that was a proper i think you'll find segue themes of colonialism install will it never far away are they all right well christmas breathing hard to say i don't know have we answered that i think big night might be my answer i think i might go with that i'm sticking with easy really christmas with mcclain's mr mcclellan cannot believe it took you five minutes i know well there's i've been lost talk of kristen my gruber impressions onto this week though i had to at

"Okay. That was two versions versions of Thom. Yorke Song Daily Battles the first sung by Thom Yorke and then the second with Wynton Marsalis playing trumpet both from the Soundtrack of the film motherless Louis Brooklyn which was written directed by my guest Edward Norton who also stars in the film. You pay a lot of attention to movie music. You know sometimes like the soundtrack just kind of ruins a film for me because I think the music is so bland or cornea predictable that it just it. Just this gives me gives me a bad feeling and makes me think like. How good can this movie be? If the director chose that music well and then the opposite happens to in the music's really great. I just feel like I'm in. I couldn't agree more. It can make or break film at a level that I don't think it's hard right for people to even grasp how different the outcome of film can be if the music is exceptional verses. You Know Banal and I think There's an unfortunate reality to the way you make films. which is you have to edit the film and for a long time to work with temporary music? It's very very very rare. That people get to work with their composer all through the course of the making of the film and it usually comes at the tail end and it's usually a little rushed and his result with a lot of film. Music is what I would call it. it's a cheap mirror of what's already taking place in the film. It illustrates or just emphasizes the exact same thing that the scene is telling you in all its other dimensions. It's not it's own voice. It's not its own thread of emotion And when it's great the opposite is true it it is its own thing that gives you a different information mation. Then you're getting in any other way. Let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining US my guest is Edward Norton and he wrote directed opted and stars in the film motherless Brooklyn.

Did being a father affect your approach toward the kind of movies. You wanted to make our how much work you wanted to take on. Yes Definitely I think doc I probably for instance would have gotten around to making this film motherless Brooklyn Sooner Sooner possibly than I did I had it ready and I was ready to make but you know when when kids come into your life like you gotTa make a lot of room and space for that The idea of like missing out on magical phases of early life Selena just to me like there's no movie that's worth that at all and So The Times that I've delayed On doing work or DEF- sort of like hit pause For family it's not even it's never ever really been a major debate for me. It's it's It's always a very easy decision but the good news was by the time I did this. You know we were in. I got to make the movie at home. which which is a big deal? You know like in New York so people know but literally at home some people some people their dream project it might take them to Romania and Egypt for Tunisia to shoot their film you know and and and I was working at times literally two blocks from home. Alec lives across the street from me. Willem dafoe lives about four blocks down the other way. Most of the actors are last John All over all over New York but we But the pleasure of working at home and Having family nearby being able to be at home on on the weekends it's it's it was it was great and when you're really small it's It's especially great so I think that acting in films is a big commitment and I take it seriously so I doubt dive into it but directing his in another level of commitment entirely early and I do understand why in some ways people that I really respect me need time Inbetween directing films So how many years did you work on motherless Brooklyn motherless Brooklyn I've worked on actively for about fifteen years. That's a really long time is it. Is it fresh tourney to know that you can work on a movie for fifteen years and can play in theaters for a few weeks and then be gone Look the the chess station Shen. It's not like I was sitting in my room trying to get it made for fifteen years not doing anything else I mean. I Made Twenty films in that time I got I got it nominated a couple of times. I made some pretty good films. You know what I mean like And I made I built some companies and sold them some kids like it's I've been even have been on the busier side of of life Got It so the fact that underneath something was just dating And it was a thing that needed station needed. Sort of like the equivalent of slow cooking. You know That's not pain. That's just that's just a creative process. You know what I mean it this. The project needed that and then eventually. Because I'm persistent. I I got it done. There was a great victory and getting this done. It's very hard to get these kinds of films made at at all these days and unlike you know I mean. The Irishman cost two hundred million bucks and once upon a time in Hollywood cost almost under a million bucks I made. Hey this movie for like twenty six million bucks so the pressure is under very different and we did it in forty six days so I was very conscientious about trying to diminish the minimum is the the pressures of releasing a movie in the theatrical context by doing it in a very reasonable way. Well Edward Norton. I want to thank thank you so much for talking with US pleasure yet. Edward Norton spoke with Terry Gross.

"Who was a very idealistic Developer so the developer upper in your in your movie. Whose name is Moses? Randolph is inspired by Robert Moses and you cast Alec Baldwin to play him which is it's interesting in so many ways and one other ways it's really interesting. Is that like Alec Baldwin on Saturday night live plays Donald Trump who is or was a developer developer and a racist property developer runic world. Well your words I but the thing is. Here's the thing I wrote the script I've I was finished writing the script by two thousand twelve In Two thousand twelve Are Insane clown president was was a game show host and it was certainly not aimed at him. It was much more to me kind of a distillation of the people that I think the most dangerous and that I think in a lot of ways noir as a film Tradition Shen tends to look at which is who are the people in the shadows. Where is the power? That's dangerous to us that we can't see. Let's hear a scene with you and Alec Baldwin when from motherless Brooklyn and you've been posing as a reporter trying to dig up information about the murder of your friend Endon Mentor. Who was the head of the detective agency where you were up until he was murdered? And you've connected manage to connect the murder to this corruption eruption in this redevelopment scheme in New York that seems to be masterminded by Alec. Baldwin's character So you're talking into him knowing that he's a ruthless powerbroker with plans to tear down a lot of neighborhoods to create his vision in their place. I see above the law and it no. I'm just ahead of it. Was the difference of the laws are but we make for the times we find ourselves in. You'll be build the city in my experience. The law will follow you. Adapt to what you do you. A lot of people like to see the way it is who rebuilding for the people to come and if one hundred years from now apple matter of what we've done now we'll help people to make science fiction wheel the laws of today or roads and bridges and tunnels for commerce to move swiftly over beaches and parks let people escape the rat race in inspire the mind live palaces of culture way hellish slums used to be. y'All sounds pretty grand. I guess unless you happen to be one of the people whose houses in the way right now okay so seen from motherless Brooklyn with Alec Baldwin and my guest Edward Norton so when you cast Alec like Baldwin to play the Robert Moses like character was Baldwin already portraying trump on SNL. Yes he was already. He had been doing that and did that. Figure into casting him at all no really in a way the opposite he and I both were like. Do you think it matters that. There's a couple little signposts on this and I. It didn't to me because they're just not that many actors like Alec who have the heft in the that old old world New York political boss like characteristic you know and he's he's so great with language when I I cast Alec Baldwin because when a imagined that that big final dark soliloquy in the pool at the end of the movie I I really couldn't think of very many people who I thought would do better than him. I could hear him saying those things in my head. We think of gun Gary Glenn Ross also of course you know coffee is for closers only the fact that I can sit here and say it. You know you know the fact that you can remember seeing like that is a testament to something about the power of that actor's ability to deliver that kind of a line listening to short break here and then we'll talk some more if you're just joining us.

He wrote directed and stars in the new film motherless Brooklyn A lot of our has jazz. Uh Scores and certainly Chinatown has a great jazz score. A Not Chinatown seems to be one of the inspirations for for your film there's two things I wanNA play back to back from the soundtrack you use a song by Thom Yorke of radiohead and flea of the Red Hot Chili peppers and It's a new song. I'm wondering how that became part of the film. Yeah Thom Yorke has been for me in my generation. I think he's one of the very best writers in modern music in terms of capturing both sort of longing sensations in stations in the heart melancholy but then also in his music really capturing kind of the the fracture and the darkness missing the dissonance of living in times that feel overwhelming or oppressive and stuff and I just liked the idea that his voice was sort of Lionel's voice like I got this notion in my head that Lionel with this dissonant brain that he has. I thought you know well. Tom Just sort of expresses a lot of what I think is going on in Lionel and instead of using some cliche needle drop of like a Billie Holiday Song in jazz this film to express melancholy. I thought we should try something new. We should write our own standard. We should write a a melancholy ballad. That's unique to Lionel final so that you're not having a relationship with a song. You Oh that song I already know is in this movie. You have a moment where you go. ooh What is this hunting beautiful song invoicing that way it can envelop the character and become one with the character and become one with the movie instead of being an imposed prior prior relationship. That you have so. I asked him if he would write a ballad feels like it's plucked from the past and he he wrote this beautiful Song Daily Battles so I wanNA play that that but later in the film. There's a jazz version of just an instrumental version with Wynton Marsalis playing trump. And it's really. It's really beautiful so I WANNA play them back to back. I the Time York version and then the version with Wynton on on trumpet. You want to say anything about that before we hear it. It's funny it was My character had to dance with the girl in the jazz club in one moment and Witton had helped me curate eight and was playing the music in this jazz club and it was sorta like if we play a ballad that everybody knows they'll be distracted by that we want them focused on the characters characters and so when did an arrangement of Tom Song which he really liked He arranged Tom Song. As though it was something. Miles Davis was playing being in a club in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven during the birth of the cool kind of phase of his career and and it was just so beautiful. He adapted it and we wove it into the film film as if it was a fifties ballot and Tom just loved it. Tom was overwhelmed by it. And in particular. There's a kid on the piano name. Isaiah Zia Thompson. WHO's very young? He's GonNa wins proteges at Juilliard and he just does this. Absolutely beautiful. Piano breakout in the thing that I love. Okay so this is back to back daily battles. I the Time York version and then version with Wynton Marsalis. I'm trumpet both from the Soundtrack of the film motherless Brooklyn.

"Stand up and and and defend their city there? There's a lot of that in motherless Brooklyn to there's there's a scene where you actually go into the old Penn station you know and of course that's like New York's Great Ghost. We Lost Penn station. We lost our great transcendent. A train station That you entered and exited the city from because of dark backroom deals and people weren't aware of what was going on and when it was gone. Suddenly everybody's saying how could that have happened. You Know How could we have lost our our our great rail station like you know. That's like Paris Guarantee Org or Victoria Station or union station. You know it's like we are now New York you scuttle in underground like a rat you don't have any you don't have any great transcending sending experience of entering or exiting the city and those kinds of wounds those kinds of losses. I think are a lot about Muslims. Brooklyn's got a lot of that in it I I think it it it It's like what what do we lose when people don't know what's going on in the shadows when we don't pay attention to the ways that powerful powerful people are rewriting the rules. We're listening to the interview. Terry recorded yesterday with Edward Norton. He wrote directed and stars in the new film motherless Brooklyn after a break they'll talk about how some of the film's plot is inspired by Norton's Grandfather James Rouse and idealistic developer who stands in contrast the corrupt the developers and powerbrokers in the film Norton grew up in a planned community his grandfather developed I am Davies this is fresh air this message comes from NPR MM PR sponsor capital one with capital one.

Let's get back to Terry's interview with Edward Norton Ugur up in one of your grandfather's Chris Plant Communities in Columbia Maryland and this was a community built from scratch. What was different about that community from other communities it was very idyllic? It really was. I mean you took things for granted that would have been very strange. You know there was If there was an elementary school a public pool and other other sort of neighborhood facilities Columbia was designed so that upper middle income housing middle income housing and even section eight housing like all all was were woven together in ways that made people of all socioeconomic and ethnic mixes persuasions shared you know community resources neighborhood resources schools pools shopping centers even mailboxes in Columbia weren't at your house. They were on your street. They were joint mailboxes. Where everyone in the neighborhood had to go to the mailbox to get their mail and it was literally done by design so that people would would meet each other at the mailbox and foster since a community it was? It was very very very forward thinking and very And so when I was growing up there was a lot about the mix and shuffle of kids I played with it was from a very diverse bunch of backgrounds. And you didn't even think about it as a kid who was just really cool. Where're you tone in the neighborhood as the grandson of the developer who created the community? Funny question some somewhat somewhat it. It was a very low Grade for for of of notoriety in our community Fortunately he was such an unpretentious person he was a real real eccentric. He wore very beloved. He was the Kooky Granddad of the whole place because he wore modulus pants and green jackets and fishing hats with fly. Lures is in the men. He was just kind of a character so a lot of people really loved him and it made it easy. It wasn't he was. He was so folksy homespun that he he was very acceptable to people so it wasn't like Yeah and he was unshowy like he had a very modest lifestyle. So it wasn't like being John D Rockefeller's or something like that at all. It was the opposite. Did he live in the community. Oh yeah yeah it was like sharing your granddad dad with everybody else but that was fun because he was so funny and Goofy and I was proud of him but almost more just because everybody loved him. What was it different for you when you moved out of that community and went to communities that weren't as diverse sure? Yeah you know I was. I was in shock when I went to an Ivy League school and had roommates. That had gone to you know schools where there was virtually. No black kids in in their schools. Like you know and not just private schools but public schools. You know one of my roommates went to public school outside Pittsburgh and it was like two thousand people. It was like an all white school. It's just hard for me to even comprehend that that had been people's experience you know Or at the idea of we roommate from Compton and that was quite exotic to some of my other roommates and didn't even I couldn't really comprehend a a growing up experience that was that segregated. It really there's no other word for it I recently read it in the New York Times an article that was partly about Columbia Maryland. Where you grew up because the county that it's an is trying to do some redistricting school busing to make things more ethnically diverse in the schools? And there's been a lot of resistance to have you been following school. I saw that. Yeah Yeah I some of the undertones of it were are so ugly even undertones. It's like you know it's like things that people talk about this because I did this film American history acts and when we did it seem the ideas in it were so fringe and we were presenting them as you know not Sienna skinhead and all these things and now you're you're constantly seeing examples of essentially the same ideas given room within mainstream conversations. When I read that Article Oakland I realized that there was people? You know opposing it. who were invoking that level of of racist XENOPHOBIC XENOPHOBIC dialogue in some notion of defending community. It made me sick to my stomach. My grandfather would have been rolling over It's a little bit copycat. Okay because Howard County Columbia Maryland sits within Howard County and Howard County is is a big county and so there's a lot you know there's Columbia but there's a lot of county around. It was unclear. How much of the resistance was more broadly across like more rural rural parts of the county? And how much of it actually stemmed from within Colombia which would be beyond shocking to me. I mean really really really shocking. On the other hand you know. I grew up in the early days of that And Columbia now is a is a community of I think nearly a hundred and fifty thousand people. So you're probably going to see all dimensions and points of view in America. Even the negative ones reflected in some measure in any community that size. I but I haven't when I lived there so long. I just don't know sir. Just one more question about growing up in Columbia menu can create housing for economically diverse groups of people and and hope to attract racially ethnically diverse people. But I mean you're not gonNA be auditioning them for humanitarian values that conform to your grandfather's grandfather's Humanitarian Values and envisioning this community. And you know what I mean so I I'm wondering like how many people in the community actually shared The values that the community was meant to represent. I think most people would say that in the beginning the declared values values of community and it wasn't passive. My GRANDPA was extremely active in writing about an in the marketing. They they we used phrases Columbia Maryland will be an open community. It you know date there. They were very overt in declaring that it was welcoming to people of all ethnicity race creed economic Station it. It was they did wave a banner or ring a bell and say a this is a progressive community and in the early days there was an enormous amount of many many if not the majority of people who were drawn to live there. Were very much drawn specifically to the idealism of Columbia and I think You felt it growing up there. You know we've been talking about Robert Moses the very powerful developer in New York who had been parks commissioner among other powerful for jobs that he held in New York. And we're also talking about your grandfather. James Rouse.
"edward norton" Discussed on Popcorn with Peter Travers
"I would say almost everybody says these are great films that Spike Lee's best films that's David ventures masterpiece. American history x is still being cited. These all those films did poorly at the box office. They were underwhelming initial releases and and they none of the American history x you you know got nominated but the but most of them were fight. Club never was even in the awards conversation not even remotely. Nobody believed neither. Were twenty fifth hour right but you you you what you come to understand is that is that in this world. We're living in films. have an incredible capacity to ultimately get to people and they form their own relationship with people and yes it would be nice if something other than DC marvel. Comic Characters Somehow motivated the investment to sell movies at broad scale scale or or brought people out in large numbers. But at a certain point. You've gotta like separate yourself from that agenda you've got to recognize it's and this I. Martin Scorsese said eloquently and very generously. He wasn't he wasn't negating anyone else's pleasure in a certain kind of thing what you're saying. Is that for him. The experience that he wants to have of original unpredictable complexity emotional complexity complexity of character. That these these things you have to in your mind recognized that these things can coexist point about room in the theaters is I think is a very good one but but they can coexist we can have mass entertainment. But but you have to calibrate your expectations when you make this kind of work and part the reason I made it for such a modest cost is i. Don't want the pressure of you know making like Ben Affleck made live by night which is a very fine film when you make it one hundred twenty million dollars. You create the potential for catastrophe financial catastrophe right now. If you make the film the way I made made it you can have a very modest box office theatrical outcome and still do quite fine You know what I mean. And that's important I. I think that's what we're light at. The end of that tunnel is to that. Movies can be rediscovered. They have a shelf. Life by cub is the perfect example of that to me. Nobody would believe how that was treated when it came out. Critics were really tough. Love me no you know but the fact is that you were you you. I've said this before but it's not it's not be puffing but you write a rolling stone and I think the reason that rolling stone and in my view there's a vitality to it because rolling stones ethos and your ethos has always been I think to seek Zeitgeist guys right to look for what what is what is going on. In the way people are feeling about the culture they're living in and and it's not it wasn't just rock and roll like it's always been about like making sure what's what's giving people a sense of identification you know and the reason reason the reason you understood fight club and celebrate it is because you saw in it. It's capacity to let people see themselves. You know you knew that people a lot of young people feel these things and that is something humorous and dark but mostly that. There's a that that that it was observing as much as the graduate was in its day. It's observing mind. It's observing the tension. The young people feel about becoming almost almost ahead of its time. Rolling Stone is is does put music which is different energy. Brought me this and I'm grateful Thom Yorke. I don't know how you got him. Basically do this for your movie. Because he doesn't just say sure no the music that he put in motherless Brooklyn and what's there's is another energy that people relate to then this is fun it's This old school. It's a vinyl forty five of Tom. I'm Tom and flee the version. They did Tom Song. And then on the B side is the Wynton Marsalis beautiful version from that From from from ago which are both in the film but those are both things I love. Jazz was right for fifty s ten. But that's also I love that music and I think if there was ever a music. That has a terrific kind of quality. I liked it. It's it yeah pop jazz you know what I mean and I think that it also so has disincentive and Tom. You know great musicians like Tom who have explored dissonance and fracture in their music. They you you know. Tom Loves Charles. mingas right who was a great jazz innovator in terms of looking at atonal and ARRHYTHMIC dissonant you know explorations flirtations in this great. How would feed into your character? Everything that's happening and it just works. It has an energy to it. Yeah and I think there are lots of people by the way Tom Laughing. There's lots of people we you know there are some people who hear Tom's voice and radiohead fans and they know immediately. That's Thom Bjork. But we've had quite a few people we showed this in Atlanta and this this African American lady in her fifty s came up to me and she goes she goes. Who was the woman singing that beautiful? You know what I mean like. And she's like how that was like the Modern Day Billie holiday or something. I was like well. Her name is Tom but her name is that I talked to but but that's great to me that's great. I love if if it if it has a tonality and some people don't and they say like wow these things go together it shows you that you can make personal work and there are people people be responsive to it. You know I have to take a couple of questions from the outside of digital bring up bring it here. It is Mr Norton. Oh my goodness yeah. It's like you're on sack. Is there a director actor that you haven't had the chance to work with but you most likely to well I should. I should this film to Sean Penn the other night because he's always been one of those artists. Yes I'd I would act in one of his films. I would love to direct them in a film I would love to just act with him in a film because I think Sean has retained a very unique personal sense of his own own artistry and vitality and Yeah I'd love to work with Sean. And he he's had to tough it out to do that to Meryl Streep I Meryl Streep I would kill to work with street well Maryland you hear that. Let's do it all right one more one more. Let's see what this Abbey says. Do you ever find yourself humming songs from dentists MUCCI. I love you I do. Abby is a person who tastes tastes. That's all I have to say. The the answer is yes and you have great taste. Well you know that we always end the show and song. I did not know that well you forget but that's it. Do you remember a little bit of something from from Texas merging. Well I helped write some of those songs you did what was come on. It's in their Edward. Oh I did like there was a song. your Stepdad's not mean he's just adjusting thousand. Good Line you know give. I need to have something musical. I can't sing. You can know you can well. What songs in your head right now? What what's He? The funny thing is what's in my head. I can't sing. 'cause Tom and I can't do Marcellus trumpet. So there's a there's a in the theme of motherless Brooklyn Clem. I'll say this you can go out on this in the motherless theme. It's this it's this really lovely. Like bub-bubba bub-bubba Ma up up which kind of reminded me remember the Great Michael Nyman scores? Yeah Michael Nyman one of the really underappreciated film composers like the end of the affair. Great Film scored you remember that do repent beautiful piano film score like that. There's work on this. The Daniel Pemberton did that reminded me some ways of the best of Michael Nyman but but in that one wins Horn comes in wins horn entrance on that. I'll stack that up against any piece of music. The composition that we go out that anymore. Yeah but I got laid off so the trumpet..
"edward norton" Discussed on Popcorn with Peter Travers
"Yeah in everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie out now that I truly love called motherless Brooklyn which is written directed and starred my guest Edward Norton Great Devere then too long. It's been way too but I talk about long as long as I've known you which has has to be going on twenty years. We've been talking about mother. It was really you've been. That book came out. Jonathan Lethem's book came out and he said I'm going to do that. Yeah this is going to be. But it's finally here. Peter I told you I would and I did I did but you know I can't wait another twenty wanted to do it. But how do you feel now. Really good I when something's been rattling around your head for a long time it is it is nice to get it out. It's sort of like I relate. My character has to read syndrome and obsessive compulsive disorder and when he talks about having glass in the brain. And that's a little bit how this project was for me. It was like glass in my brain. I want. It was uncomfortable and I wanted to. I did want to get get it out but apart from that personal compulsion to see it through. I'm happy with the way it came out. Maybe maybe more than I usually am. Actually it's saying the things I wanted to say and I think maybe you commented on this. It's it's sort of. I don't think it would have had the resonance that that it has now ten years ago. Honestly We were talking about this before we started just the difficulty of course as he has commented on very eloquently. I think in his kind of elegy to the how difficult theatrical films have gotten how difficult it has gotten to release original theatrical films. It's it's always a struggle for filmmakers to make original Ville visions. It's always been you see the cast we had in this film. We have Bruce Willis and Willem Defoe and Alec Baldwin and Google about the Ron and Bobby Kennedy Volley in great great actors. But you still have to. You still have to sort of struggle to find the resources is you need to make it. And I wasn't and I didn't need them. Two hundred million easy. My I got all my actors working the free on my actors worked for nothing to help me get it made honestly but you still but you still have to still have to figure it out. Well there's so many things in terms of mother Louis Brooklyn about what you have to do even with a studio backing him. You have a movie that maybe they don't know what the title is. Maybe maybe they never read Jonathan's book it'd be they're saying what's it about right. I'll what is this and that money has to be poured into letting them know what it is. Ask because not presold been John Game. Yeah No to do the property those things and look in my case. I I was there saying look. I WanNa make a big old fashioned period epoch about New York in the vein of the Godfather or L. A. confidential confidential. or any any of these great old fashioned movie experiences I think demonstrably audiences really loved right when they're good. We all love of those films and and I wanted to mash it up a little bit with other another type of movie. I love which you also have a pure you know sort of the underdog the the forrest gump. The Rain Man That idea of a a hero. whose very unusual has an unusual condition edition? That you've never seen before that you feel empathy for and the empathy that you feel for him the the fact that you immediately. You're on his side. That's part of what that's what pulls you through. A murky. It takes is one of the nicest guys you've ever played. WELL HE IS I. I think he's well. It's funny and someone said to me you've done a lot of people with Conditions are afflictions. I said No. I've done a lot of people who are fating conditions or yeah like like primal fear baking the score with Deniro in American History X. There's no faking. He's he's just. He's angry mentally ill and the truth is this character. He's not mentally ill he. Just has he has terrip syndrome so people they call him freak show but he's he's smart and he's intelligent. He's he's susu sensitive. The great thing about watching this movie is that it takes awhile sometimes for you to say my brain isn't working like Lionel's right. Oh He's piecing together this puzzle in his own head his own synapses and we're trying to put a linear thing that isn't there. No Oh but I I actually the only thing that I just. I think that Agreeing in house district buys by a certain point story. I think when characters this goes back to like J D Salinger Holden caulfield and catcher in the Rye when sometimes when a character tells you his own story right from the start you you relate you feel the emotional hook and I think if you set that hook early with a character if in this case Lionel in a classic detective voice over where he tells you I have something wrong with me. I struggle with it. I I have friends. Who Understand? Me like Bruce Willis but not everybody does and it's it's tough. You know you start to go. Oh I inside this guy I understand him. You want him to do well. You don't want him to trip himself up. You're always reform. I I just think what you're doing you're saying I don't quite know how he's piecing it together doesn't tell you know and that goes to what you've done with Jonathan Lethem's book set in the late nineties but you send it back in time as through the fifty S. I don't think anybody ever knew what to read sets the well. That's what you just said is part of the reason we put it in the fifties the the the isolation the characters isolation not just in terms of other people being a little less sensitive calling him freak show But if you know that he doesn't even know what he has your even more sympathetic. It's it's it's even more isolating to not know what's wrong with you in some sense but the other thing was honestly Jonathan and I both really like those movies. The the the old fashioned atmospheric feeling of those noir films from that era. The novel motherless Brooklyn Brooklyn is very interior it's inside the characters head but obviously a film is a big a bigger canvas. You have you've got to create a landscape for people to look cat and it's great landscape. Yeah it's that whole fifties thing that's going on in New York and why. Why no is called called motherless Brooklyn Yeah you know why basically has nobody so no one looking for him? But he has Bruce Willis's character yes when a minutes boys so he he has something. And that's how this movie starts. It's about who killed my mentor. Who did this and then we get what to me? She has a real chinatown by. which is where's what's festering underneath this? It's not just who murdered character. What's going on? It's it's what's going on. Well you had the water in La. That was going on. You Know Chinatown chinatowns. Great because it's about La's original sin. It's not just about Out a mystery it's about the idea that La is built on crime. And that's and that's that's what I like about our foams. They they do. What you said is exactly right? It says hey they say hey yes. It's a certain mystery and a certain emotional relationship is driving why he's investigating but really what what this about is the more he he takes us into the shadow we realize there are things going on in what we call our democratic like Galateri in New York society that are violently antagonistic to everything. We say we believe in which we see through the out Baldwin Characters or Robert Moses type character master builder under a person that says I'm GonNa create the city to look like this and then cuts out anybody who's an outside anybody who is into one percenter right which which is what goes to the topicality. Yeah even now and was a racist t the total race. Yeah and I think that idea of the way that the way that we actually baked people talk about institutional racism but discrimination was literally baked into the Way New York was built into a modern city. They literally did do things like lower bridges to the new beaches. They overpasses they set them too. Low for buses is to clear them. Because they didn't want black and Latino minority citizens coming to the new public beaches so they literally limited access and people think that sounds like a conspiracy theory but it happened though it did happen and we see it and yet these are things that you have in your screenplay screenplay this book added to. Yes what was in the book right when you collaborate with somebody like Jonathan Right. WHO's a really terrific right? I really great writer. Is He with you on. I couldn't have done what I did on. This was bowled you could call it. Yeah but but he doesn't say what have you done. No no no no. I wouldn't do that without checking it out out with him. I I felt that I felt there was reasons to set it in the fifties. We talked about that. He liked that idea because he likes those films and I think he he knew is fill his book we had a certain Surreal Meta modernism. If you WANNA call it data it's really about the interior life of this character. He he wasn't so married to the plot per se. The plot didn't wasn't like the story of my family or the story of my city. It was it's a very Byzantine mazed. It's really an excuse to write the character in some sense. You know he also loves Raymond Chandler and you know those guys marlow at the detective. Active in Chandler with went through a couple of novels right so we kind of approached it like his great character going into another the next another another story in terms of taking a movie which you've described we've talked about it now and putting it on the screen. Do you worry about it reaching reaching an audience putting out kind of putting out work that you do that you you have a deep feeling for is always It's always got Certain emotional risk no matter how thick skin you get over the years no matter how many no matter how many you know. I've been through quite a few experiences like I'm getting a a nice honor from the camera. Image Festival in Poland this year. It's the Great Cinematography Festival right. And they sent me a rundown of the films they wanted to review in this thing. And it's amazing like at the top line of of those kinds of assessments of films. I've done that people think are really Definitive or something like that. You have like fight club. And he's always in there and the twenty fifth and American history x is always in there and none of those films did well..

"edward norton" Discussed on Slate's The Gist
"Of dark psychology and people and a capacity to you know. He's very very seductive in this. He's he he presents cents a vision of the necessary vision to do make hard decisions to make move big problems along solve big urban in problems. But but then I think too. It's very it was. It became more and more interesting to me that within the me to move in and things things like that what we were seeing was also an unmasking of the fact that the that there's this other extension of brutal power is that when people it metastasized in people into feeling essentially like Alex says in the movie I if I want to do something to to a woman because I'm feeling like a wrecking ball out of everything else. I'm doing my life. I'm GONNA do it. You know what I mean and I think that that I think that that is is that. That's been definitely more underlined. Since I finished it originally. There's one other thing I wanted to talk to you about. So you're do this movie about many things. But very largely about Robert Moses. This great builder who visited great consequences upon the communities. He's that he built on. Your grandfather was James Raw. Raus Raus Raus. Who have people don't know this guy was on the cover of Time magazine with the headline cities? Cities are fun. Yeah there it is and he is credited for being this great urban planner but also founded an organization that very much looked at the people all who could have been displaced or were displaced. Well it it. It's the largest nonprofit developer of affordable housing in American. Yeah that's your grandfather that's your lineage. So does the Moses interesting offend you more more so I know about it because of him. What did he say about most what we're his personal interactions or Moses? I believe you only met him. One time and the FAM- The story I heard from my uncle who was in college at the time was that he was very shaken after meeting with him that he was very shaken again and and said something to the effect that he was more dangerous than people understood. My grandfather was extremely eccentric. You Know He. He was an orphan by the time Music thirteen or fourteen. He made his own way. In the world he hitchhiked across America. Depression he he was a real real. Huck Finn kind of an existence. And he literally put himself through night school and law school hustling pool and it's often parking cars and hurt. He went to the University of Hawaii before transplant. For like a year he had had a very very very eccentric and eclectic like youth and he he rarely wore suits in his older years. He he wore like Madras Jackets and fishing shing hats. He was and he really did say very Homespun kind of things like he would say cities or fun or he would say like cities should be gardens for growing beautiful people like he and he Willem dafoe character has lines that are things grandfather said like to serve people. You have to love of people and so the Anti Robert. He was the anti-arab Moses but row does it say something that Robert Moses because he was driven in the various and inhumane was able to accrue so much power and wasn't that your grandfather wasn't a powerful person but you know wouldn't stack up to Some of the great great nefarious builders of his age no but he was a very effective. I mean downtown. Baltimore was viewed as a hell hole. Let me when I was growing up in the seventies the the inner harbor of Baltimore was literally a dump. There was a dump there and and what became the transformation of downtown Baltimore began with his conviction that you could redevelop the waterfront and then on top of it I mean. He helped develop the whole concept of the low income housing tax credit this federal tax credit mechanism that that became. He was huge advocate for passing it in eighty six and it's like the greatest hundreds hundreds hundreds of billions of dollars to affordable housing development through very smart market incentive and and you know his organization has has built like a million units of housing in America. It's a it's one of the you know. Ten thousand community based organizations in America Under Enterprise Network doing affordable housing development. It's it's It's it's one of the most significant urban renewal organizations in America and he built it from scratch. Was He as a person or as an idea very important to you as a kid growing up. Yeah huge yeah. Yeah I was he active in Your Life Your Grandpa at the time I I worked for him when I got into college. I worked in affordable housing and I use my first job in New York was going to the bronx in crown heights and bed. Stein and Washington Heights lower east side. A- and interviewing people who had been homeless or significantly dislocated and who had finally had gotten an affordable home through one of enterprises is New York developments in the early nineties. Enterprise was taking city owned abandoned buildings and working to figure out what the city. How do we have them and ultimately did thousands of of renovated and restored into good affordable housing Thousands of city owned abandoned buildings. The funny thing is I knew lots of people who we're like. Laura rose like the the the female lead in this film who are what I would call true American heroes not just New York here as they were people who had come gone out got an educated come back to their own communities and started organizations like Community League of West one fifty nine th street which became Community League of the heights which is now a significant housing developer social service provider and and the people who the people who were in in there like block block by block doing advocacy for people like those those are truly like the greatest Americans motherless Brooklyn is the name of the film listen you might like your special effects as you know hulk hulking up to me if you can take a ride over the triborough bridge and the camera pans and you get to see New York in Nineteen fifty-nine that's the greatest special effects fact I could witness Edward Norton is the director writer and star is a motherless Brooklyn thanks for coming in pleasure.

"It's Friday November two thousand nineteen from slated to the gist. I might pass you know what I'm not that into anonymous. I mean I love of anonymous. His previous works had loves cave paintings and his ancient Greek pottery. And of course who can forget his writing such ditties as I've been working on the railroad food and then and then did you know that anonymous wrote that someone wrote it was an animus now of course there was a time when anonymous gotten a nasty feud over credits with traditional traditional and standard. But I think they cut anonymous in on some of the prophets him. I keep saying him could be her. Look at me. I mean anonymous. It's really very well. Could be a woman. How many men do you know who produce such attention getting work? And they don't want the credit. Am I right ladies. Men can't live with them can escape their role in the vast majority of incidents of interpersonal violence and that by the way was first noted by yeah anonymous yet. This anonymous Adam is guy or Gal but probably guy who's out now with a book wants to tell us something about the trump administration but the thing wants to tell us it doesn't feel new doesn't feel notable. It doesn't really feel worth spending a lot of my mental energy on if we can't as they say consider consider the source and when I say they say you know they is. It's anonymous so they say and this was one of those New York Times you didn't ask for it but here it is over the top of your your phone breaking news notification breaking news trump officials once considered resigning on Moss. An anonymous author identified. It is an administration official says in a new book. Read our review. Listen that is not breaking. That was a thought that was considered and dismissed missed two years ago and that is not news it did not happen. It is not worth my time. It is not worth my attention actual events with actual actual names attached. Actually destroying US are being ignored all the time. The trump foundation pay two million dollar fine in acknowledgement humint. That they shouldn't have gone about their business by paying other fines of Donald Trump. Not The proper use of a charity. Now I knew that was on the New York Times below the fault but I don't think it's going to get any play. We should be paying more attention to that than anonymous. How about this bailout pay to the farmers to make up? For trump's disastrous astras tariffs has surpassed the value of the bailout to the auto industry under Obama which got so much attention. Get no attention has been paid to this us so this never ending stream of stories that has an anonymous official or officials increasingly disturbed by the president's increasingly erratic behaviour. I say this respectfully to all you increasingly anonymous officials else do something about it or shut the hell up and you can quote me by name on the show today. I should feel about the support that Pete Buddha Jr is experiencing among black voters although if you look at the polls maybe we say black voter because it really doesn't exist and we will examine one one explanation as to why but first Edward Norton adapted the Jonathan Latham Novel motherless Brooklyn and turned it into something more Vinnie vinnie character. Study of a detective with a case of rootlessness and threats in this movie. Alec Baldwin Plays Moses Randolph. Who is clearly a pretty faithful?

"So Edward Norton. Well this congratulations on Two years the movie it's great and I was particularly attached to it because of how embedded it is in New York City. I'm hoping they would have an appeal to other municipalities. New York was a complicated place. There's some good historical Lee Accurate referencing the value of central. Park in Manhattan. Who was there before squatters and farms? There's still a original grass called sheep's meadow name. Come from you know you can ask yourself so I was delighted to see that. Bit of sort of A history three kissing a a long time. You WanNa we've we've interesting tendrils through a reality history because I think Look first and foremost to me. The challenge is make a film. That's like the films I love like like La confidential or Chinatown. First and foremost you gotta like like work that hypnosis of great photography sense you know music and a sense that you've gone through the frame and into a big world a big romantic sensual experience of another time and interesting characters and characters who been saying you can root for And I and oh I think you first and foremost have to create sort of movie. Magic can and give people the experience that we all go to the movies for. We're like the Godfather or out of Africa or L. A. confidential or any of these types of films that transport us you know but once you've done that I think layering being in layering in enough that when people come out of it they they at the very least saying. Wow did that really happen. Is that wait. How how much of that is true? Is that based so that that like we were talking about activating people into a sense of like is that was there actually a person in New York who was in an authoritarian named Mos power loss. Like that you know what I mean Moses and and that's that's that that's sort of this hopefully the second level that you can achieve you know So Ebbert I'm what I'd like to do for our star talk yeses. It's not often. You can run the numbers on this that you are ever in the same room with an astrophysicist. So I want you you to take this moment to ask me any question. You may have been harboring your entire life about the universe have many. That's the problem Since there's is a lot In in the popular press recently about the first photograph of a black hole. I think an hawking talks about this this this in the thesis of Wormholes or this idea that black holes with their super density or bending space time so much that they could make parts of it touch with each other or something like that in serious thought is there is there any is there real real serious thought around the idea that there's conductivity dimensional through black holes so let me answer what I think. The question was all right. If you look at the Einstein's general theory of relativity which gives us our understanding of black hole physics. And you follow that through. Okay I it breaks down at the singularity right so we we need some other theories there. And that's why we have string theorist but if you don't hit the singularity just sort of move through the black hole Einstein's relativity prescribes that an entire other space-time emerges on the other side of the black and you leave the one behind you when you came and so would you talk about dimensions. You talk about what. What does the black hole do today? So there is the likelihood that a whole other universe universe POPs out on the other side of a black hole contained within the black hole but dimensional. It's an it's an entire universe and but it's we don't know how to test right you want to be the guy who goes and comes out tries to tell no of course ram so it right. Now it's fascinating hypotheses right yeah right but it's not a function Russian of thinking of space. I'm fabric of being almost like bent around to be in like in Madeleine in languages. Old like pop sifi things about the tesseract right. The idea that you're actually going from one place to know. Yeah so we in the same continuum. Yeah that would be like a wormhole to give one part of the universe to the other efficiently right. Yeah so it's not clear that it's a wormhole rape because we don't see other places in the universe that could be the exit for that right we just don't see that right and so So it's not clear whether we can exploit it in that way anytime soon. Okay have a much more practical one In the work that's being done to look at You know like viable EXO planet and something like this. I understand kind of radio. Astronomy and stuff like that but when they talk about the signature the atmospheric signature you're of life etc.. What are we actually looking at? What are we looking at that? We have the capacity to be so granular that at these distances and everything when what is literally the atmospheric signature and how our we measuring it. Great question so this is a new cottage industry in the field. And it's it's the search for biomarkers Ray and these. This is evidence in the atmosphere of a planet that could indicate that the surface of the planet has active life while you're observing. She can't see the surface of the planet. It's too small. It's is too dim red but what you can do is if the planet passes in front of the host star like from the host star moves through the atmosphere comes out the other aside on route to you. The Observer and the active passing through the atmosphere gives the atmosphere chance to wreak havoc on the spectrum of that star and the component yes in the component parts of the atmosphere. Yes differentiated that much. Oh my gosh you know. An atmosphere without oxygen is differentiated. You'll see the oxygen signature in the atmosphere of a in the spectrum of the Star when the planet is passing in front of and it wouldn't otherwise be there when the planet is not passing in front of it so so and his oxygen even the primary signature unstable. We have Oxford. If you've covered all life on earth. The oxygen was slowly right right so something has to keep churning it out like our plant by plant life. There is a whole portfolio of unstable molecules huels which if you find them in an atmosphere something accelerating something's generating it and so you can look at the kinds of things that make that life does right and oxygen or methane is another example methane termites methane right so the cows through their flatulence is right youths. Find Methane other ways. You can make it but if you find it it's tantalizing and makes you look more closely. And so what is the instrument that's got that level of granular ability to look at the light spectrum and see the distortions of specifically those elemental a very powerful telescopes with very highly resolved spectrographs. Spectra Guy. Okay that's what's going on here. You split up the light into its component colors hours and when you do that you see the signatures of elements molecules depending on what it is that we have not been able to do that until we put put telescopes outside our own albums outside the atmosphere. Best for that yet. But if you get a really hunkering telescope on earth their ways to correct for the atmosphere ear where you can make some headway on it must be I mean. I'm saying it's hard an argument for having telescopes outside. Oh Yeah Yeah on the far side of the Moon right great question to are we putting one on the far side settlement odd so China landed a spacecraft on the far side of the moon. Yeah the first time so they're more players in this right now but and yes hell. It's dark dark there but it's it's shielded from Earth's right contamination and but you need to communicate around the band of the moon right so you need like you need satellite with satellites transmitters along the edges this sort of thing but yeah that's the future the future do vinyl prediction on affirmation timeline to affirmation of a planet that's producing biological signal. I give it ten years if not Mars itself right in our backyard. I give a tenure the rate which were we're at it in our lifetime Tori differently my son who's six when we were talking about this one time. He said he said they have.

Edward is the League Edward. He surrounded by an amazing cast of actress. Assembled including Bruce Willis and Willem Defoe and Alec Baldwin. Bobby kind of volley who's who of New York actors and it's kind of in the Chinatown. La Confidential Savane. Very kind of old school film that you don't see made anymore.

A Look At The Latest Movies In Theaters
"Movies tonight's premiere a lot of really interesting movies premiering tonight including the latest in the terminator series in the first movie that James Cameron's been involved in in a bit joining us now to talk about terminator dark fate and a few others is sorry bunch Washington post center stage contributor and movie critic joining us here in the here who have program said bunch good to talk to you about friends here in Cleveland how are I'm great Bob I'm great it is it is kind of a weird weekend at the at the movies you've got you've got a couple of pseudo award hi quite releases coming out this weekend you've got motherless Brooklyn right which is the ad Norton new are about life in New York City in the in you know thanks Vera it it is that the the problem with this movie is that it is the features as Norton doing that very ed Norton the actor leaf thing you know if you've seen the trailer a hundred times and I have a you know that this is you know that this is going to be which he you know kind of should the shuddering map and then you also have which is the story of Harriet Tubman I let me see if I may so he let me ask you a bit more about motherless Brooklyn because I am an Edward Norton fan and I'm I mean going going back to the illusionist I mean it I mean virtually all of the twenty fifth hour is that the kind of thing you're talking about when you see a typical Edward Norton type of it is a very it's a very after the manner performance yeah he's doing he's doing if he played a character who has as a mental disorder if they it's kind of a rain man white hi situation and you know it it it depends on how much patience you have for that like I it again my my my big complaint here is that the movie is two and a half hours long and the this is the an ad that somebody with limited patient it's hard to do that and so and there's also Herriot which unfortunately I I miss that my my child had the flu so I was not able to get the the the press screening of that but I'm I'm pretty interested in it in part because it makes Hardman look like a walking talking poster for the the the second amendment as she's you know she she has the arm up there she can head back south and and free the slaves I I I I am looking for that I have not actually seen it's like yeah I can't say one way or the other if it is they recommend or not recommend other terminator dark fate is is the big movie out this week of opening wide on you know four thousand three and is the first James Cameron involves terminator then in the the second one then he turned right back yeah and it is also a direct sequel to teach here this is one thing that people are fans if if there are fans out there who have obsessively watched all of the terminator movies you know terminator three terminator salvation terminator Genisys that that there are Connor chronicle this kind of gets all of that the the the with all of that out of existence and it's just the straight world two terminator two which that's great news that's great news because I I'm one of those who skipped all of those sorry I I I I don't know why the genesis and the others did not grab me because I was a huge terminator fan of the first two and I missed all the rest so I kind of thought I can't go see this I will have missed so much so you're saying that matter does not matter if you if you've seen terminator wanted terminator two you're all caught up I think I think most people have just seen terminator one in terminator three honestly I I have a soft spot for I thought it was interesting and there's something kind of different with the with the with the franchise the terminator dark fate starters there were it features the return of Linda Hamilton affair Connor she is back in trying to save a a young girl who lived in Mexico for being a what being wiped out by the terminator that is kind of a mix of the the terminators from the first two movies that if the if gotta act endoskeleton you know the metal and a skeleton with the metal liquid liquid metal poly alloy him make a kind of separate itself the can in separate itself into two sermon acres wow it's not just one and can I come in gonna coming hello and thank you and also a defining this girl is at a argument human I play by mackenzie Davis who who is the is the interesting actress she was on the halt and catch fire the prestige internet TV are you know prestige SL on AMC about the the ride the use a mac whatever Bubba around the figure out so the bunch though about terminator dark fate is is at his age he doesn't look like in cannot be the terminator of the past what role does Arnold play in his terminator by a persona in this thing sure well I I I don't want to spoil too much but but Arnold is also back he he will be back he is back and he is playing a terminator that has that came back from from the past and have kind of that'll that'll down almost the he has he has a family and I I'm not joking not a joke you have a family and his family is a family of five plus I mean I I get was it too much okay bye I got too much it is it is interesting you know there's there's there's a whole gender studies dissertation the written about the evolution of the terminator through through the years you know the in the four and like the role of masculinity in society or something as in the first movie right he's just as big Bob naked that you'd write me right goes around killing people and you know he is very of what product any you know and then in the second movie he had you have to learn to feel any you know he he gave he did he get them humor and you get them on personality and then in this movie he is again almost domesticated and it's very strange to her watch he that play out on screen it's not bad exactly if it's just strange I don't know I mean but the problem with this movie is that it totally fine but nothing more than that and if you if you want to revisit this world and you want to do it with James Cameron I think you need something a little more than fine but I also don't know that there's there's that much more you can do with the terminator movies right if it's a movie about you know sending a robot back into the past to kill somebody who is important to humanity future and you can only do that so many times with the before before the well really run right right well yeah I I just I think it I I think you could I I I I can't I can't give us a strong recommend in the sense that I don't think it's a much the gotta you gotta get out there you're gonna be wowed by it but it's it's okay it's fine you won't hate it if if mediocre we're not gonna see Arnold on skis jumping over cage shark though you're here you're telling me it's it's it's a less okay I feel like that sounds may have jumped the shark when you told me there's a terminator family I don't know how that's going to play out they said the only ask you one other question also opening this weekend I'm AT and if you've seen it or not but I'm interested just because of the heavy weights involved deniro has taken on a break from bashing Donald Trump and decided to make a movie here with Pacino and with the ray Romano as well it's the Irishman the Jimmy Hoffa another Jimmy Hoffa a vehicle here any thoughts on that one well I actually see that this morning there's a press screening the hot so I I do not have any thought Jeff yeah I I I don't be is it actually out in theaters now is that I had seen the ingleses opens today now so that yeah yeah yes so it is it okay after this is a necklace release it is going to be playing limited in a few theaters around the country it is a and I I just looked it up it is playing in DC so I I see it in a couple hours I will let you get back and let everybody know how good it is next week I yeah but it is it is out in a limited run in theaters right now mostly landmark they think and then it's going to be on Netflix on I think the fifteenth but let me I I will I will I I saw I saw the promotion for the movie yesterday on I don't know if it was the today show for what it was but but I did see here in interview no one today but anyway I did see an interview with the three of them and you know anytime you see anytime you see deniro and Pacino get together on screen which they have done numerous times it's it's huge it's you know either the chemistry is always perfect and and and it's always it the question is about the story which you'll find out later this morning but I'm also curious to see whether or not Robert de Niro's brand has been damaged or diminished at all because of his you know is this political career now seems to be as important to him is that his acting career and some people love his you know outside interests bashing Donald Trump and some people really resent it'll be interesting to see how audiences respond yeah so it it's on that puts on November twenty seventh in theaters now it in a few theaters now Hampel theaters now and then they'll be on Netflix starting November twenty seventh you know it's interesting because I I it'll be it'll be hard to judge exactly what what the response to this movie is because Netflix doesn't release any actual data you know they they don't release box office data they don't release of the data who actually watch it the movie and how much of it so it's hard it's hard to say if audiences will you know will stay away from that new models sorry is this a new model big you're right I mean it's Netflix produced and I think I saw on exposures today it's a hundred sixty million dollar budget so it's a massive budget movie if I saw that correctly in its Netflix and they are going to put it on Netflix but it's going to have a limited run in theaters is that a new model I don't I don't recall that being a very common thing if it's Netflix for them to put it in the mix we asked for a while they do it they do it for the they do it for you know doctors even type movie the the awards contenders because in order to qualify for the Oscars you have to have a theatrical run in in at least New York and Los Angeles or you know one week or two weeks it if if the thing so they they expand that a little bit and do you know Chicago the others but it is it is not a it is not the standard necklace really followed not the first time they've done that they did that last year for Roma and some of their other movies ballad about their Scruggs and and a couple others and they've they've done it a couple times this year but it is it's very it's very strange because the because of the way they work the major theater chains that want to work with them they have to do the right in the route well I'll tell you what Sonny it's a really interesting mix there's terminator if you're a fan of the series of special the first to go to that one if you can stand two and a half hours of jittery go see motherless Brooklyn and we'll find out next week what you

"edward norton" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
"Is coming to me and I walked away I felt bad 'cause the woman is scared the woman and then it just so happened that this woman was on I'm GonNa get a good point taking that we really should we burned it yeah so I bugging biofach and model t that's happening or do you want to be a part of that technology that helps correct or remind people if I can start by posting ugly picture of me in any measure are true liberation it's very tough off to imagine how people voluntarily break the addiction that are designed into these these platforms yeah for sure but do you ever then zoom even further out in in a knee cheat way go in what we're all just monkeys on this planet trying to stay busy toward dead does it matter if we're fucking writing a book or sitting looking at Vr. Does it matter I mean you have to I go there's some some greater cause that you'd have to believe in to say that one's better than another I mean all I can use personally go how do I feel after a day looking at instagram versus how do I feel about a day of riding a motorcycle or building something I just personally feel better on the ladder right yes yes yeah so it just got to be a truth for me yeah we've been watching it sort of I'm not even call it a guilty plea hurt I just didn't know there's this Netflix show altered carbon no it's really good sci-fi Black Mirror it's like you're I'm watching it going could end up like this for sure and it's kind of detective noir future it's gotTa blame all these seemingly pretty scared of it I mean I don't run to someone who's not concerned about it it'd be it'd be scarier to me if everyone was like this is the greatest life's never been better but there's so many studies of the Eddie rates are much higher with younger people it's not like we're we're unaware of the problem we certainly don't have a solution inside but I it comforts me a tiny bit that we recognize there's an issue here and I will say it goes back to I had an anthro class on the last day of class my professor made this speech and she said look man you've been here for the shortest chunk of this experiment I mean you've been here for one hundred fifty thousand years we've been in civilizations for ten thousand years and I want you to look at suffering were on the right trajectory so if you look at the over so long term comforted by the fact that we're on a trajectory and it looks a little scary right now but I do think it's continued to get better and better and better I don't think that's disputable in any way there's dips there's bad pal spells but we've been ever approaching what these ideals we set out to have you know but it requires you and I and everyone else Louis which honestly is why it's great to have a show like this I really mean it I think it's like they've got to elect to eat better right they have to do this sugar and high fructose Corn Syrup isn't going away and people have to go we're all getting obese it doesn't feel good we gotta help each other are better we all have autoimmune problems we got to help each other better too I mean we do I love the podcasts have done an Enron around the media system and basically said hey look at this people love having long actually nourishing talks with each other and we don't need you to do it in any way shape or form you're no longer needed thank you very much we're going to have those conversations with each other and a lot of people are going to tune in without your say so it's amazing amazing the demolished participation of yeah the Infos have to be aware that like we're doing it through the exact same device that we also think is causing all these problems Sir I'm going to try to get one question on one personal question would I think I am drawn to your attracted to you about is something I deeply relate to you about and I think it's why getting filmed without your permission issue I think it's why wanting to be in charge of the voice that gets put out making churchyard voice I think you and I are deeply attracted to control I think you're a pilot because you love control direct cause you love control and I'm wondering have you isolated where you think that stems from I mean Your Dad was a marine your dad was an environmental lawyer your your father worked in the Carter Administration the federal prosecutor this is a man who's fucking and control of his being in the dimensions yeah I think he would he would offer up all of it served in control and out of control and realms right no I mean my dad is a a figure of inspiration in many ways control sometimes can also be equated with de risking right you can assume that people want control because it helps de risk things or help them manage variable what whatever it is they're trying to achieve better and they and they feel more secure within control notionally right yeah one of the things that you would have to really know my dad to know his like he's done all these incredibly accomplished things across his life but two things really to me especially on he never defined his aspirations around money ever while always chose what was intellectually adventurous and socially contributive as his aspirations while and when many of his peer group call it chased money he did not lay and he's had a incredibly I could never resist he could have been one of the top corporate litigators in America among other things easily and he always went after the ideal of being contributive which there's no limit to my admiration for Yeah I also think that he'll say that he you know he was a among other things he he studied Russian history got a master's in Russian studies at Columbia before you the marines he sort of cited the only good idea of the Soviets was the five year plan the idea that you check in and reboot and he changed his career in ways that you would call for for someone who's in control he flipped the table up or pulled the cartridge out and put a new game in with regularity because he liked the challenge like climbing the hill of the beginning of the starting of things the hard work of division part but he changed careers full stop more times in his life it would make people white knuckle with fear the idea of that many restarts right yeah I I think the thing of even within control the idea of taking risk is is really important I'm not avoiding the question I think it can at a certain point part of getting older and wiser going well if I wanNA exercise the many dimensions of storytelling than I should just step up and do it right and then like as an actor be disciplined and work with the people who you don't want control you who you enjoy the surrender to their vision right so like for me like like and maybe there are choices to work on things in the earlier part of me career that today I think I would look at it and go I probably would say I didn't have that level of trust artistically that and and in a way now since I can make my own things maybe I prefer to make my own things and if you WanNa take shape them control them be the author of them but when Allah hundred and you redo comes along and says will you read Birdman by eight o'clock tomorrow morning like that it's the greatest feeling in the world to feel dropping through you that this is a huge swing with one of the people I admire most in the world as a filming Acre and to step inside him and service him yeah if he goes you know what I think it's got to be black and you let me put everything I've got into black and then he comes in and goes I was wrong it needs to be white and let me give you everything I've got to make it the other thing and just happy as a clam well I imagine you thriving very well under someone who does inside now no it and I imagine if you're in a position where you can start poking holes and stuff and you start losing confidence that it gets a little scary yeah but but you know one of the things that happens in this click bait world that we live in is that people build these very reductive narratives of antagonism or fill an archetype around they were the productive and righteous process of collaboration right and so like Finn You talk about Fight Club finches the most control I was getting sason in order he's pound for pound pound for pound across all technical departments of the craft one of the most talented people that I've ever worked breath and that's great but people don't even realize that he's one of the best directors of photography you'll ever work with he can apply makeup I've pictures of him fixing the glass in my hand when I fall through the cab you know knock myself through the cabinet one of my favorite pictures is fincher doing the blood on my face and putting the glass just where he wanted my one willingly he'll give you a line reading funnier than the one you had in mind right so it's like super the nuts just like whatever but that doesn't mean that me or Brad or Andy Walker or Helena in the mix lots of times it was like but wait a minute shouldn't this be you know it's like everybody was throwing it into the mix what people wanna make it out to later they argue it's like we didn't fucking argue we worked right we were doing the work it wasn't like me trying to assert myself it was like we're doing the work this is the work when a director knows that you love and respect their work and that you are inside their process bore them there's room for all kinds of passionate conversations passionate conversations about the thing or not ego those are work even as your friend and is someone who has long respected your level of talent in staggering. I forgot a little bit I watched Birdman we went and saw Birdman and now is like yes why does it this motherfucker do this more back I was like he's the greatest mother time made me forget oh right he's this fucking good it was like thrilling Krizner's It's not do it more I mean I understand you have a lot of pursuits in a lot of interesting that makes you a better person a better father but also you know I wouldn't mind that you did this once a year would you like each one more if there'd been more frequently I don't think so I think you like it more I'm fine but maybe every two years and you do it yeah I mean do drugs get better when you overdo them no a high tolerance goes like don't you want don't you want the like when it is it is fun something you think about like I'm pacing this out I mean sometimes it happens by is that you control I would've made motherless Brooklyn sooner right I could have gotten that cast together I read the script three or four years ago at least yeah and I think like it's not like always by design a little I'm sitting in the front of the car and having shown it to a bunch of people who had absolutely no idea what was coming in high school that that I'm slightly on the outside of of things I wish I was more included in which shows you how greedy the monkey mind is because I love the work I do and I love the people I work with and I've got I am blessed.
"edward norton" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
"Well Edward This you know this is an interesting namic for me because we're friends I know a lot about you and your infamously private and and I know you I know a lot about you but I'm not private away but I probably I probably got some assets that haven't been deployed here and time we met which I wonder if you remember what thousand percent on the flip side I was a fan before we met but then this all started happening MHM and then I think I wrote you it's like the old hair club for men ads where they say I'm not just the President I'm also a member I know I'm sort of like and also a fan. I shouldn't have this but I do and at least I own it is I have to admit people of high status giving me compliments feels extra good and a few different times you've been a lot of wind in my sails because you came to the hit and run premier and then you were very generous and gracious instead stuff publicly about it that was incredibly flattering and came to the ships premier that was flattering in yeah when I find you listen to the show it's still kind of hard for me to compute there's almost two people in your head there is the guy I know so there's you who I know and then there's Edward Norton the movie star who I I love in is a thing in Neri the tween shell meet almost if you had that with different people definitely I for sure I think that the interesting thing is that some people the integration of those things goes down smooth and maybe even enhances like you know Bruce Springsteen who I grew you know literally route ninety five corridor yeah came up on men in the normal amount to me like more than I can ever really say like many people feel but on meeting him he not only does not disappoint but the man the person you get to know somehow is so doesn't diminish your ability to have the same experience with the work yeah yeah in his case there's so much that's authentic about who he is flowing up into the work that there's not a disconnect right yeah whereas like I got to know David Bowie weirdly who also for me was he saved life kind of people you know what I mean you feel like at a certain point in your life it comes through the airwaves and you're feeling less than in with the cool kids can you feel out or alone and he comes in and goes drinks are the ones that you're gonNA find your way into your tribe event Kelly and save your life you know kind of your emotional life in a way but he was a man who created characters right right and a shape shifter or like the prestige he was a magician or like or the illusionist I'm sorry no no no.

"edward norton" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"And listening along my guest this week another good one Edward Norton yes the Edward Norton whose career in the movies began in Nineteen ninety-six going to say well what did you do look and I was like Wow Ryan until my kids I gotta do something Eh and the more I work on this I started feeling like in a way it was my own way of getting at a lot of what really mattered to him I mean a but there's the there's Nawar the serious version the wire like Nuwara literature and our best movies I really do think they rise out of an impulse in it's very unique to America you you can't do this in China and you can't do this in Russia you really can't you know it's an impulse to say hey we're we trust our system and we go along with it and we appreciate that people can do well but at a certain point if we start to feel that there's things going on under the skin that are not the way things are supposed to happen here we're GONNA start sticking a fork and and there's a limit to what will tolerate and the active in really good Nawar Bogarde jig gets in Chinatown there are people who feel the cornerback and they take this into the shadow narrates that's underneath you know the narrative of Sunny California the place where you can go and remake yourself the American dream and what Chinatown does is it says eh this whole city was built on on theft an enormous rip off that that ruined a lot of people and the people who did it rape their daughters to by the way it's a really dark story and it really it it and I think that when we when sometimes we need that we need the it depends on what you think is patriotic like I think one of the things that's amazing about America is we have the impulse to cry foul when we're feeling that disconnect between who we say we are and what is actually going on and I think that the best of those films come at those moments when we're starting to feel that discount more that's what I was going to ask you about is this how do you apply that to this moment because there is that feeling right in the country be uneasy and there's inequality and all those things was this although it was twenty years in the McCain was this the right moment for this movie it's funny you say that because I did I finished writing in thousand twelve and I had I had a moment where I thought you know Barack Obama was being inaugurated for his second term and I thought like awesome I mean I still think it's a great character and a great story and I think it holds up as just one of those kinds of movies like L. A. Confidential that we love to go to we know that we have we I was I wasn't worried that people wouldn't enjoy the character and the idea but I did start to feel like well maybe we're in the post racial age and and we're headed and and this is losing its teeth and then for reasons of my own distraction and just whatever it always takes a long time to get together get a good cast together it wasn't till like after two thousand sixteen that I was really actually able to get had it together and head of Warner Brothers at the time called me and said this is now we have to we have to make this now there's a now there's uh an urgent value to making this movie right now and he really championed it and we got it done I think that we went underlying things but this is look this is the movie deals with things that are resident not just because of what's happening now but Sir okay I think what's going on right now where again limb put it this way I think I think that the movie sort of digs into ultimately is do we want to define heroism as the acquisition of power of money are we going to are we going romance the bully the person who says who gets to the point where they say people are inconvenient to what I intend to do or are we going to define heroes as people who even within their own struggles whether it's threats from being a black woman in the fifties who's a lawyer and is unseen by other people's secretary people who despite their daily battles they they find the ban with you to stand up against that power and and prioritize caring for other people I think that argument is white out right now and I think that's that's the that's the path in a way that this character who has been very defined by his own uh-huh is forced to kind of grow up I think in some ways by bide moving in this shadow world and suddenly understanding that there are things going on that that irritate him Alec Baldwin Two is the perfect representation of that power he plays that character so well it really does guy you had in mind for the party much so I think there was a moment Alec Alec happens to be in the old days they will call Apple Threat Alec happens to be a great comedian like one of the great comedic actors he's a great rock on tour he can he has his own talk shows things but it's first and foremost if you came up when I came up he's a great dramatic actor not just great dramatic actor a great theater actor I saw an Streetcar Named Desire and I was just out of college and he and he melted my mind I was like this guy has that old world heft of of a brand allegiance Cobb I know he he he had that kind of weight of an command of language that's very very rare and you know doc for us it was like coffee is for closers only Gary Glenn Ross like and I've never I've never lost my view that Alec Alex I think greatest Potency is the combination of his of his kind of a lethal combination of charm and incredible capacity city to intimidate you know and I I never really could imagine I mean he was just the guy I really really wanted him to play this part and distracted by like this thing he does every week and on it the minute alison this get atomised like all of that he's he's really really and that that final Soliloquy of dark power that he gives like I Newark Cruise your crews have seen everything like they look at what you're doing and they're going okay artistes we're going to go over here and have a coffee while you do all that right and the day I did that monologue at the end the entire crew was standing in the shadows a like riveted I haven't seen crew in really watching an act like that in a long time it was really something I would argue it's before he opens his mouth have that I shot from behind his head and it's clear it's Baldwin's head and you don't know he's in then he goes up and shake the hand his presence is felt immediately yeah and I think they're you know I there's many things about this very special to me like I I the this cast is extraordinary but it's also like everybody's from Bruce Willis Willem dafoe Alan and everybody else Bobby Kennedy Volley everybody this phone for scale essentially they they we didn't have we didn't have two hundred million net flicks I hope iron but but we had we had to do this big epic period thing in New York we had to do it in a smart and efficient way at an I could not have gotten it on if the entirety of this cast didn't basically say we're in this for the love of peace and it was it was one of the great Clement's of my career that people sort of they all stepped in on this for me and for the piece I was Gonna ask how you pulled that off as a director because I saw the budget it's not the two hundred million dollars yeah right and so that the scale explains it but also you have some like grand setup you you've got the old Penn station you've got so how did you pull that off as a director all those beautiful shots and those period piece moments the if only directing is like this sort of this act of wilful madness you say something like we're GonNa make we're going to make one of those old fashioned big period films us that we all love like L. A. Confidential Godfather or we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA do it in New York and we're GONNA do it big scale like a Diorama and we're going to be a car chase through fifteen blocks of Harlem across the bridge down into Queens French connection style and we're going to do this on a price everybody and a lot of people just head for the exits that guy he's a bloody waterloo film but but the people who say who go no do that like a genius production designer Beth mickle and one of the great cinematographers in the Modern Era Dick Pope who I had gotten to know on the asianised which is a beautifully shot film that he was nominated for and was shot in forty days so I I need you find the people who are hungry and who know how to get it an and and figure it out but I you know it's Recreating Penn station some Sommese yes then some people were like can't he find the final clue in a bus station at Penn station but the point is is what we're talking about like the movie is about the in between like pushing ourselves forward kind of through muscular power and versus caring about the virtual value the value of communities and if people in Penn station I mean people in New York Rather Penn station is not just anything it's be symbol of gets lost to the wrecking ball when when no one's looking out for the things didn't matter you know and that's to me motherless Brooklyn it's not just about a Mike character whose orphan and the idea of people needing someone in their life who's looking out for them it's also about US looking out for each other and for the things that matter even as we try to be dislike muscular society that advances and Penn station is a loss will never get it back Are Victoria station that was our garden ord and I always liked a member of Daniel Patrick Moynihan the Greater New York senator he said uh when losing Penn station used to descend into New York like the Titan and now you scuttle in like around yes and it's true we've lost we've lost a we've lost relationship that Matt like the way you enter and leave the city is denigrated and and and losses so I wanted to I wanted to ghost of that loss to be in the film you know what I mean I felt I felt that because I read about that and what I have never read a good explanation for why they took a wrecking ball to that to build the thing we have now one of the worst train stations on earth yeah with a with a great stadium on top of their right and it's true and I think looking at by the way also brought up in the film in a line at nobody like Alec Baldwin Can can deliver nobody but Alec Baldwin deliver he you know oh you learn that that it was not it was not an accident it was the will you know the owner of the dodgers gets blamed but the truth is the person who is really behind that with someone essentially said if I don't get my way the way I want it the dodgers can get on the arteries to the coast and that's how it happened yeah it was it was Darth vader like figure in New York who just dismissed one of the cultural icons of the city and said they're out of here right.

"Another episode of The Sunday sit down podcast my thanks as always for clicking with primal fear it was the first movie ever made he was nominated for an Oscar and won the Golden Globe for it first movie he ever made and he's been off to the races ever since American history x the people vs Larry Flint Fight Club just to name a few and his latest project is called motherless Brooklyn and he is the writer of that film the producer of that film the Director of that film and The star of that film and it's got a lot of people talking joining me as always the producer of this fine podcast Maggie Maggie and the producer of this fine interview Hannah Van Winkle Hi Hannah thanks for having me yes so we should let our listeners in on a little backstory here so we've been wanting to talk to Edward Norton for a long time sometimes these things pop up rather quickly I usually we book them way out and you've got time to think and prepare find the perfect location and do all that about when did you know as the producer of this story when we were interviewing Edward Norton well say it got down to Wednesday about ten am that I found out we were going to talk to Edward That night at six thirty that night that night when do you usually find out about at least a couple of weeks couple weeks right so what happens this is great insight into how these things work so at ten am we have Edward Norton don't know exactly what time share and we have no idea where where do you go from the Harrison closer thankfully I have obviously a great support team here Z.. But so I call up the desk and make sure that I can get people to actually film you guys have more wonderful conversation so and this is all by the way happening on a Jewish holiday which should just throw another wrench into the whole city and so we have to make sure that we've got people to to roll camera that I have to find a location thankfully I was able to also call in some some people that are in our orbit to to find a good location and I think we've found a pretty good one for this it sort of is reminiscent of the film a little bit of kind of got that expense is brick there's a bit of a fire escape in the background it's sort of noir ask like motherless Brooklyn thankfully it worked out and and and then I've got to obviously watch the film get everything about Edward to you so you can adequately prepare for this interview as well so it all came together really quickly early but I think in the end it was worth it I walked into the apartment basically is what it was we're we're doing it downtown in New York where are we dislike persons apart menu like don't worry about it just sit down and I did I did that but he was so basically Maggie was in Miami that day doing impress and his great credit who was like I will when I fly home I will touchdown and I will come and do that Hopton a car came right to our have you sat down with you and you guys had a great chat for like ninety minutes a record breaking the record Leith yes go back like to do breath on all of them but I'm pretty sure just listening to it it was one of the longest relieve Kevin Hart was the premise over an hour this was definitely over an hour as well yeah kind of you guys were just sitting in his living room chat sitting in somebody somebody was somewhere in so someone's living room but he he was you know it's funny these people come in with reputation sometimes and that you know he's he's very serious about acting obviously in filmmaking I wanNA talk about a lot of other stuff but when you sit with someone for ninety minutes and it's let's be honest the end of both of our days we were just like ready to kick back and chat I found him to be like super open and honest and willing to talk about whatever I completely agree and he talked about some things that I hadn't heard really from him he talked about his mom and sort of a tough time of that right happening right as a primal fear was coming out so I thought that was really neat to hear from him I also like the hear him talk about some of the other efforts that he's doing his environmental work some of his betterment of the world work and the notion that he wants is to do something with his life rather than just being artists and not to diminish the the value in the lasting impact of an artist but he wants to really make a make the world and I thought that was a really cool there's an amazing I thought moment of telling by where he served said you want to answer the what did you do during the war GRANDPA questions it's like I dressed up and play make he did say Maggie like the reason to be famous the reason to be a celebrity if you want to be that word to use it for something else I love that oh and by the way he started a bunch of companies crowd rise platform charitable platform and I didn't realize Hannah until I was reading your research that he was way way early in an Uber.
Neil Diamond Thanks Colorado Firefighters With Private Concert
"Conversation so, I there weren't enough Bartelson James jokes like he was disposed person for. The wine coolers back in the day I was assuming I was assuming they'd comes straight out with that right at the beginning. It was funny It is funny the comedy central roast the only problem I have is that, they'll they'll, diversify the day to to get as many different types, of people up there actors others and they had Dresen Joseph Gordon Levitt the MC I it's getting. To a point where you could tell all. Of their stuff is written by somebody else I think, that's why I like Nikki Glaser it always feels even if somebody else wrote her. Material she owns it and she makes it personal and you think it's, from her voice a lot of the times you get up there like Joseph Gordon Levitt you could tell he just reading something that. Some writers, wrote him about Bruce well did do a, movie with movie, loopers with, them and I I. Got the sense? That they were friends but you know for example Chicago comedian Lil rel. How was there And except for watching Bruce Willis movies, admitted on the day that he has zero connection to this whole thing human there were some people up there it's like why even. Their comedy, central star Edward Norton was on the desk, and he was, kind of, funny but like why. Is it north It didn't it didn't make any sense but, it was funny and like I said the clips are all on one gene naughty though we have a text question going today about celebrity crushes that you may. Have. Met and then you had a. Different impression after and just just I want to go on record Bruce Willis and Edward Norton both celebrity crushes. Wine that, did you meet them No not yet so they're just.
