You go unbeliev obvious we so everybody knew thought shot himself in the head hired hitman. It was hired hitman. So get this alec. Alex hired sixty year. Old curtis when we find. A picture of curtis curtis edward smith to assistant his suicide. But make it look like a so that alex surviving son buster. Look at that guy doing the rock. He's not doing it. We'll that's permanently there. He's got he's got resting rock face when the lasted a math just permanently. Put it for real. This guy's boys born evil. You've never seen this before he.

We'll get alex bus. The surviving son. Alex admitted the plan to authorities on monday. And and smith the guy who he hired was arrested and charged with assisted suicide assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature pointing and presenting a firearm insurance fraud conspiracy to commit insurance guests. How alex found curtis. Edward smith craigslist craigslist. Oh that both wrong he. He represented him in multiple cases in the past few decades. Because smith is total piece of shit so alex murdo hired sleaziest criminal. He knew that owed him a favor and had an insurance fraud scheme three months after his wife and son were killed by maybe him or smith or any one of the thousands of people that want to kill them in south carolina because of the hundreds of years of dominating prosecuting and covering up murder so wow that caught caught embezzling millions from his law firm like the day before he hired smith to kill him and anyways anyways. So how's this guy. A real person as well or know alex murdo. John grisham is probably considering reading nonfiction books now because he could just find people like this yeah and he saved his skin. The craziest part is he's going to turn himself in right. So he's he's he's still like he's still. I wanna live like he. He wants to live out his days like in white collar. Briskly spill the beans on the headshot shot thing he hasn't. I don't think spill the beans on an if he knows anything about his son and wife's murder or the housekeeper or the gay son or the or the the gay the woman with the boat that has killed in the boating but he he mentioned the head shooting thing that was on him so myrtles attorney dick harp pool harpootlian great name car putin but harpootlian acknowledged the scheme on wednesday saying that his client alec murdoch or alex murdo was depressed and suicidal due to the recent deaths of his wife his son and his elderly follow father as well as his struggles with opioid addiction. So yeah i mean that's a good one of those who make you sad so that that was a lot of stuff piling up there They went on to say. Alex is not without fault but his life has been devastated by his opium addiction. And that for the past twenty years many shady people have taken advantage of their knowing. He was a rich addict and that one of them. They're doing the hunter in who've agreed to take alex's life by shooting in the head presumably for money so they're they're pushing it all the blame on smith the guy opioid alex murdoch called surfer dinnie. Embezzle fucked tunnel money from his firm. Millions to separate suffered incident. Oh man committed insurance fraud walking disaster so rough summer for alex pat as long as as long as he's the victim of the situation and they can they can. They can paint him as he was just so depressed. Red diction that was the problem. They're trying to trying to hunter this for sure you know. It seems like alex is of breaking point. You know he's willing to spill the beans or at least some of the beans because it's just. It's all unraveled for alex. This point also on wednesday audio clip of murdoch discussing the plot with smith was released. So that's officially what happened with his head shooting. We still need to find out who killed his son. Paul his wife margaret and the nineteen year old stephen smith who's had whose death investigation has been reopened. He's the game man who was beat to death by maybe both of them urnov boys. According to some rumors also a police probe is being launched on the myrtle housekeepers death gloria satterfield. Who suspiciously died in slip and fall in two thousand eighteen so too big updates. There the police are like we've probably should check these. These things open up kiosks. Hey hey sorry to be in court. We're getting there's a lot of coverage on this murtaugh thing You think maybe. I think we're gonna have to solve these other murders. That's exactly what's happening and like i mentioned earlier Satterfield the housekeepers family. Her sons are like he didn't pass dot so like it was reported that he paid five hundred thousand in wrongful death. So this guy's has been covering up murders probably having some ordered to over the years and then just and then just never ever hooking anybody up and just keeping all the cash that he steals off of the dead. That's all that's how alec murdoch roles mark he's been in a dark place and he and he's recovering of we and we need to respect. Look there will be more updates later but let you guys want to hear the audio of him. Calling smith for the assisted suicide l. Yes hello curtis. Who's.

With no moon visible above the sea was an obsidian carpet laid out before them as dark as the night sky and filled with as many stars. Such was the effect. It felt at times as if they were in fact floating in space. At eleven thirty pm. The pair spotted something peculiar in the distance. A slight haze sitting just above the water. Minutes later, there is widened horror as something fast and looming emerged out of it. Below deck, stead shot awake in his cabin with the strange sensation that the room had just been shaking somewhat alarmed. He hurriedly made his way to the top day to find passengers and crew members dashing about and the ship. Now seemingly adrift in the vast miss of the ocean. Moments later, he was informed at the terrifying news, the ship had collided with an iceberg. However, such was the confidence in the vessel. He was advised that all was likely fine and to return to his cabin. Below the waterline. However, a very different story was unfolding. Although the hall had not been directly punctured in the crash, the collision had dented the paneling at the seams causing rivets to pop and the paneling to split apart. The ship began taking on water immediately and before long it was cascading into the boiler rooms at a rate, fifteen times faster than it could be pumped out within minutes. The ships head was being pulled under the water. Just after midnight, the ship's captain Edward Smith boarded a complete evacuation. At twenty minutes past midnight. It was clear that the ship HMS Titanic was going down and his captain Smith New, not everyone would be getting off alive. The ship will though carrying two thousand two hundred eight passengers only had enough lifeboats for half of them. In the end only seven hundred six would survive. It was reported that as the Titanic sank. W t stead did all he could to help others into the lifeboats even giving up his own life jacket to help another passenger. He was last seen clinging to a raft before losing his grip and disappearing below the waves. It is strangely apt that stead lost his life on the Titanic. Since the event in itself is remembered in many ways, as a microcosm of the very world that he had worked most of his life to confront understand and challenge. The vessel had been split into three tiers with the third class ticket holders at the bottom. The second in the middle and the for with the best access to escape route on the top. As it transpired. Many third class weren't even given the chance to escape the hatch ways leading into the section being closed and locked in on in an attempt to keep the vessel of float long enough for the others to escape. In total thirty. Nine percent of first class passengers died. Fifty, eight percent of standard clause. And seventy six percent of third. The following day, as news of the disaster began to break steps. Name was prominent among the list of well-known passengers to possibly died. It wasn't long after that attention was drawn to a peculiar Winstons in his dying. In one thousand nine hundred six stead who claimed to experience premonitions publish the story, how the mail steamer went down in the mid Atlantic. In it. He describes the sinking of an ocean liner.

"One of the questions that was asked was quote, what opinion do you hold that would generally be considered unpopular in the larger film criticism, community Allison's, our sponsor. This was quote autour theories, often trap, unquote. I tend to agree with Allison on this is not that autour theory is wrong or bad, but I do think it has become overblown in the film criticism. Community note, this is my view at this point in moving forward, not Allison's. Autour theory tends to skew criticism and a couple of ways. One, it assumes that autour are better directors. The nano to a director's this is simply not the case. Robert wise, Michael Kurti's jump immediately to mind as really great directors that are generally not considered towers. This does not mean that they are not interested in their work or. That they are not interested making quality work, but it seems that autour theory suggests that there are autour than there are hacks to at assumes that any film tour makes interesting artful because it is about an on tour. I call the Stanley Kubrick syndrome. The idea that film is a masterwork simply because it has Kubrick's name on it as if autour cannot make bad films. Have you seen Hitchcock's family plot Truffaut's such a gorgeous girl like me or half a darts output. He says, rhetorically three tour theory can have a bad effect on current filmmakers. I think the best example of this right now is what's Anderson he seems to have become so consumed by his own sense of style and storytelling that his movies are becoming more and more airless almost cost phobic. I think you discuss this bit on the islet dogs episode we did, and maybe it is just that Wes Anderson really can only make films in the way that he does, but I think it is likely that the idea of being autour looms large with him and can potentially constrict thinking or cause them not to be. More adventurous and his choices, even if this is not true for Anderson, I do think it is a danger of the prominence, autour theory. So that being said, what other methods are you find productive for grouping, films discussion? I think she probably unpack field turf theory. Yeah, I think it's one problem I have with it is that is that it's not used properly considered the right. It's taking on a meeting that it really was never met. Let's let's define our terms as what it, what do you think the proper definition is and and from there to a theory was away for started with the French, and it was a way for them to identify certain aspects of features as being connected with filmmakers to be able to look at a studio film, you know, by Hitchcock or Anthony man or nNcholas Ray and be able to see a certain common set of aesthetic values that are being expressed by this film director as the author. I mean, that is, that's me when you, I mean that fundamental truth, you take that away and in film is chaos to me. I don't. I don't see how film can be even thought about without thinking about it in terms of direct because I don't think anything really connects up any other way that's me, but I'm kind of a dog Matic about that. But in any case, the idea of value being attached to filmmaker just because they're not tour, I think that's probably true though. It Stanley Kubrick's not really a great example because. Masterpieces right. Follow through to its logical conclusion to get people going nuts over late period like Edward Smith or something, or, you know, I mean, you can go, you can certainly take that too far. You can identify certain features of filmmaker and then be blind to the shortcomings as well. But I just I don't. I don't know, but I had some very useful. I think it is very useful important theory that is hugely influential in ways that people who even object to it, don't aknowledge enough. I think it's it's useful when until it's not, you know, I certain limitations, but also, you know, I have my blaze arranged by director. I wouldn't say I'm all in with every possible permutation of the theory, but I'm kinda was Scott is where it is so useful to talk about how film and also kind of explains why would would rather watcher leap period. Blake Edwards movie than than another comedy came out like nineteen eighty eight just because I have someone I can follow through certain themes and interests, but I don't.
