It's been rough, nothing like nine losses in a row to ruin the season. Someone posted the last time or the last losing streaks over this long going back to I don't know when. And I was looking at the years and I'm like, Yeah, None of those years turned out. Good. Yeah. No, This is not the plan. This is not the formula for success. No, it isn't. Even though the White Sox had dropped a couple. It's a good news is the Indians have done the same thing? Yeah. Six Games up World Series for sure. Speaking of the Indians on this date, I believe my math is correct at 74 years ago. The Cleveland Indians took on the Chicago White Sox on the south side of Comiskey Park and Larry Doby made his debut. He took a train from New Jersey overnight to Chicago to become the first black player in the American League just a few weeks after Jackie Robinson I know a lot of you out there know the name Larry Doby. He managed for the White Sox. At one point, I consider myself a baseball connoisseur. And maybe I knew the name at some point, but I honestly didn't know much about him. And we've got Luke Evelyn coming. And he wrote a book about that Cleveland Indian team and the story of this incredible player who broke a huge barrier and his story is very different than Jackie Robinson's. It's an interesting chat, and, uh, I don't know, do you? I mean, did you know much about Larry Doby? I mean, I've heard the name a million times. But, uh, like I had forgotten that he had had managed with the White Sox and So that was you just piqued my interest there and you know he when you go back to Cleveland and breaking the color, very Bill Veeck own the Indians. At that point, Of course, he was the owner of the White Sox and just a huge figure in Chicago. Overall, Bill Veeck, so Just gotta get interesting when you do the history on it, But everybody talks about Jackie Robinson. I mean, Dolby came through three months later, and his treatment from all reports was straight. Brutal. Yeah, So it's a great topic, man. I think he said in an article a couple of many years ago at this point, he said, Of course, they treated me as bad as they treated Jackie. It wasn't like the second guy came in, and they were like, Oh, yeah, sure. Now we're all okay with it. And he had a really bad first year. He had a great secondary. We'll break that down with the author, and he had a Washington Post column out today about Luke Apple. We'll chat with him after the 4 30 news, But I want to say a little Bob Kessler to my friend.

"So Weinstein G- GonNa go to write a wet. Is the timetable on him. Coming to well. It gets sentenced on March eleventh so L. A. Generally could not get him and this is one of the reasons that they. I assume they did not file for bail on appeal in New York. Because the minute that they filed for bail on appeal for New York they would have slapped him. There would have been what's called it a -tainer out of La would've gone right back into custody unless he came dwell so the thinking. I'm sure was. Let's get him sentenced Donald Force. La's hand L. A. We'll have to issue what's called a writ at prosecute Wyndham. Which is the Latin for? We want to prosecute you. And they'll bring them to la. He'll probably be put in Twin Towers. Which is the Medical Facility. And he will have a right once the detainers under the interstate compact is filed to have the trial with one hundred and eighty days What's it look like for him on trial out here? And what kind of zoo is that going to it's going to be. I've been You thought New York was bad. I can see la being Incredible mean incredible in the sense in the in the sense of that. Look right now. There's a trial that I thought would get a lot of attention and nobody's heard of it do you remember the HBO Special Jinx Will Robert durst right that trials going on in La Right now really and nobody's it's like unheard of. I'm not talked about. I mean Roberts ours is on trial the LAX court. And nobody's I mean it's gotten no traction whatsoever after Google to find out Ivan to know what's going on. I'M INTERESTED IN DICTA. Aaron and Dave Chestnut for the lawyers very good I mean outstanding lawyers. Not very good outstanding lawyers. I mean it's it's quite a Engaging whether he did it or not I mean. Hbo Did very well with the series And you would think that this thing would have all kinds of tractions got nowhere corona virus corona via the way you pointed at Burbank Airport. I I'm a stickler for pointing that okay. I've turned around when I come in here. You do the Pinata thing you blindfold me twirling Weinstein. Who's going to represent the victims? And I'm sure Gloria allred the one woman as she's going into court yeah I'm they tried to muzzle or New York and judge. Burke wouldn't do it but she's going to go in and as the attorney she never does that saying L. A. DA L. A. L. A. And I forget who's assigned to the case I saw it's a he believe because I saw him quoted although it could be just the head of sex crimes. And maybe they've got a line deputy. I don't get in the weeds. Once he gets out here and find out. Is there any any on that note? Is there ever any Supplemental attorneys like the L. A. Is going to try everything right. Let's just say you? Let's say I'm the husband of one of the alleged victims and I go. I don't want Darden Marsha Clark fucking this up I wanNA get GARRIGA's in there to help supplement like you you can't do it can't do and can't do. I can't tell the. Da's office has Complete Dominion Control on assignment of who was who does the court I could. I call you an outside contractor associated advice. Whatever where you could like contract with him after the after the court 'cause I feel like I'd be sitting there going. These guys are screwing this thing ten ways to Sunday and then after the day would sit down so that's right go or years ago. The California Constitution I think by initiative was changed to include a victim's bill of rights And when I say years ago I mean years ago and so and then there's been various modifications or addendums are additions and one of the things is to give the victim Further writes in terms of. You can't do this or that without consent or apprising the victim of it so I you could have input but now in terms of actually prosecuting the case there would be constitutional I think challenges to any kind of somebody who has a financial interest in the outcome of the case. Be Prosecuting the case. So in fact there's there's federal law in this where if a prosecutor has a any kind of a financial stake in the outcome of the case just like a federal judge that and stay court judicial opinions. I say the same thing you have to recuse yourself recused means step out of it last night at least God Chuck Schumer and I heard something came down from the bar and They were discussing a Schumer. And you know betsy threatening gorsuch and catch on and all that kind of stuff and The the bar sort of landed somewhere on it but Deeply troubled deeply. They're deeply troubled. But where do you where do you? What do you think happens? What does it mean it from people I hear in the right laughed? It's like it's not a threat but it still okay. This is your threatening people. That aren't voted into their positions. So what are you threatening? Well what is your threat? I'll give you the arguments on both sides. I'll give you my kind of takeaway on this. I am. I will say that. Where would I fall? Generally I generally would fall closer to Schumer that I would to trump so but Schumer statements about two Supreme Court judges where they're gonNA pay the price or this or that if that were if they were elected this goes to your point if they're elected officials than I understand it but there are not elected. Officials are lifetime appointments. I don't know what they could possibly mean about paying the price at the same time you've got trauma could mean somebody's GonNa get you. Yeah that's right and so immediately on the left. The reflexive response is well. Trump said that Soda my are and Ruth Bader. Ginsburg should recuse themselves in anything. Trump related based on their statements. Well recusing themselves is different than you're gonNA pay the price. I I mean if I were to make an argument friend of a federal judge to say that they they told my client he was gonNA pay the price in some other contexts as opposed to. You should recuse yourself. Mr Vargas or something like that. There's a demonstrable difference so let's not just say any insult or anything that's directed Supreme Court. Justice is the same. It isn't the same when you say somebody's GonNa pay the price you gotTa tell me. What did you mean by that when you're the Senate Minority Leader in your saint? Somebody's GONNA pay the price. Are you exhorting somebody to violence then? Then somebody's GonNa say the I can see this ping pong match and they're gonNA say well trump goes to rallies and says A. Don't you want to just punch this guy? In the old days we punch him in the face we'd slug him in the face. Yes that's in SORTA. That's that is inciting violence. Yes I can. I can understand that. That's not the same as saying somebody should recuse themselves. So let's try to have some rigorous thought at least just look at the language one word dissecting this yeah. I don't know if he's going to get sanctions bars. They're never going to bars too busy. Too busy investigating you know. Only we can be the state bar. We've laid off for a year.

"francis hopping" Discussed on Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda
"Talking about communicating with. The audience. Reminds me of how you handle close ups you don't you don't do a lot of close ups you you choose them very carefully right right and some of my previous obvious movies. I like Greenberg or Francis Hopping two examples. Where they're even the title of the movie is the name of the character? You're you're kind of have a single character that's kind of bringing you into the story. And part of the story is their emotional journey as well as their physical journey and in those cases for some similar and some different reasons I felt like particularly. They're that close. UPS should should be used sparingly. Because I thought you know these were both characters who were part of their obstacles are themselves and which ages both a A human common human challenge for some people Are All people to some degree but also oh I almost related it to like silent comedy or something like a Buster Keaton movie or Charlie Chaplain movie where these individuals kind of at the fate. You know. Ah they're they're they're. They're sort of the the mercy I should say of of you know it could be a storm. It could be. There's often a big comic set piece there. You Know Charlie Chaplin in the factory and you know in modern times or the gold rush with the you know the cabin coming off the cliff and even though I was telling sort of a different kind of comedy in in a sense I I often I wanted to show the characters in the world know. There are a lot of wide shots. I mean also. Both Ben Stiller Played Greenberg Greta Gerwig who plays Francis. They're are great comedians and great physical actors so again seeing them seeing their bodies you know in in the world in in in in the case of Francis she plays a dancer too so often saw scenes. There are dance sequences in the movie but scenes. Even when she's not even dancing I thought of her sort of a PR performer. Or a dancer in the world with marriage story. It was different because it was it was ah to hander. In two characters in the sense who go on a kind of journey I felt the the internal life was something that I wanted on it to document or and so I felt close ups. We're going to be very important and I. I even used a different aspect ratio. which is the you know the frame itself of the movie? I mean letterbox and the old fashioned square yells. Yeah what they call the academy which is one three and the numbers of this sort of the ratio so that dimensions of the bill you change the ratio would shot shot previously. Most movies are one eight five which is a fairly common aspect ratio for movies. I mean to what was what was marriage story every one six six so it was slightly more narrow very interesting. This is a real question of you communicating with the audience. And they don't even know it right right. I mean the the aspect ratio the shape of screen. Tell me how changing the shape of the screen in matters. What why did it tell the story better? Well I think it created a sense of portraiture when we were in close up and it'll I some he so that the face would would would wouldn't have allowed space left over in boats. It's more narrow on the sides I think. Also because of audience's expectations were used to too wide screen is particularly right. Now I think is used a lot and eight five is stop wide-screen. It's almost sort of like what a TV shape is no TV's he's now with more rectangular are more. Maybe an audience is sort of expectation for an image you know currently so by narrowing it slightly. I don't I don't know I guess I felt like maybe it would kind of focus you in more and in particularly in these close ups did become becomes kind of mostly invisible way of slightly changing your perspective. When you're watching that it that it certainly was invisible invisible to me? I had no awareness that you would change the shape of the screen and and it probably had some effectively. How do you know it's having the effect? Thanks Ernie Way to test the idea. I think I just go go. More off. Visually tests in we did tests in different aspect ratios camera tests I love how the close ups Felton one six six. I felt it just held the face in a really away and that was kind of what Robby Robbie Ryan knew who shot movie and I went to was that was that going with that feeling It's interesting I mean especially as a young actor actor dash filmmaker. I used to love to watch movies made on small budgets and see how they solve the problems. There was that one movie. It was a western made by a director who made them home movie for three thousand dollars and he raised the money by being subject subject for drug trial. What movie was that? I think it was the director of Rodrigues. I forget the name movie. But when I love loved El Mariachi Mizzou I think so. Yeah when I loved about it was almost a home. Movie was in closeups because he lit the movie with two bulbs CBS. He couldn't light a whole room. He didn't have the equipment so you. He told his story in. Totally almost was totally enclosed subs except when he was outside and they had had little ambient light nigger shoot larger scenes. It fascinated me how he was able to use the constraint to tell his story through the constraint I think having limitations in in and probably in all art forms but I can speak from my own experience to making movies in some ways I think it it. It really can up your game. I mean you I think in the way you you described being a perfect example of it can style can be born out of these limitations that actually you know that that you might otherwise it's not of otherwise found in yourself. I mean I I When I made squid we had very little money and very little time and the movies all hand-held and you know part of it from you could say from an aesthetic uh and narrative standpoint and emotional standpoint you can say oh but it brings the kind of intimacy did feels kind of almost documentary? Like you're you're kind of in the family family life in a way that you wouldn't be if you were raised standing back and again that's under the level of consciousness snus is right right and that's true but it actually given the time constraints we had. It actually was a practical decision as much as anything. which was AH I knew? Then we could kind of swing around and shoot decide and this side then. We wouldn't have to kind of stop and turn around we that it just it it it the immediacy actually help us get more done and I could have discovered a style based on on the kind of constraints us that are right up against you when you talk about being on the set. You reminding me that. We've I've been talking about communicating with the audience and I was where on the side with you. Making marriage story was how you communicated and with the actors the director has to communicate with so many people the crew couple of hundred people often. And when you talk to the crew do you do you talk in terms of storytelling or do you do you talk in terms of the effect you WanNa create generally storytelling storytelling. I mean it's also why I like to you know as soon as I know I'm going to work with somebody like I love to bring them in early because in sometimes even while I'm still working on the script because I feel like the more time we have communicating. It's only going to benefit. You know what happens when we're shooting on the set on the day on the set with you know the light fading or what you know all the the crazy things we we put up with the movie making when they when they know. Exactly what you what you doing what. Why are you doing it within their collaborators? Rather than yeah and my hope is that that then you know actors will feel when they even. I got the script that that that they're kind of in it already. You know that you know when they go through their process of learning their lines in preparing.

"Screen presence presence truly say it one of the finest if not the finest generation thank you as soon as scorsese left the stage. I talked with driver about his collaboration with noah baumbach who made while we're young and francis hop with driver with four times. There's there's something that we our way of working. Our work ethic is similar in that. I just don't take it for granted that we're making a movie has the potential to give of language to a culture that's completely different than ours and someone's paying a lot of money for us to be here right now to do this thing that will last forever and one one of the world premieres was the two popes. It's a fictional movie about to real people pope benedict and pope francis and it imagines since personal and theological conversations between the two beatles. Yes i know who they are because you do and rigby who eleanor rigby marine dot com jonathan within price plays the current pope francis and he swung by the frames condo in telluride when i was supposed to ask the play pope francis. I thought oh no this is. This isn't a good idea because the day he'd become pope. The internet was full of images of me next to him. Even one of my sons <hes> sematech say daddy you the pope so it seemed bit on my just being employed because i look a bit like him. Some telluride movies he's have premiered at other festivals and that includes pain and glory the latest from spanish director pedro almodovar the film's star antonio banderas says she says the movie is loosely based on a falling out that he had with the filmmaker remember where he was talking about but it was it was funny. It was fast. The actor was discovered by lie almodovar's at a young age but when ben deras decided to make an american adaptation of the mambo kings play songs of love rather than almodovar's next movie kika the director wasn't happy bandera told me the story outside next to his hotel room and the hotels jacuzzi to me. He took a picture of victoria real the actress <hes> himself a me on he signed behind the mambo kings play very side side songs pedro and he gave me the beach and they went away for many years and <hes> listen. I have done good about movies in an hour for spain but i will never ever stepped back. No-one's intimidator. Do you know the that. I have done in my life because i am content. Would i am now five years ago. Eddie read main and felicity jones starred in the theory of everything plane stephen hawking and his wife jane. The two actors are now reunited in the rinat. It's a movie inspired by real people about two balloonists in the eighteen sixties and i asked red main and jones when they swung by the frames condo if they signed onto the project together really good it meant flying generate. We did come together back. Initially we were obviously sent it. Separately read read it separately both had a very positive response to it and then we had we caught up on the phone and had a chat about record each other short and i think the main thing was in a sense was kind of if you do it then i'll do. It seemed to be the writing conclusion because this phillies basically a vast amount of is two of us in a basket about the size of small table and when you're spending three months instead basket you need you need go all over the place less than some of the year's most talked about foreign language movies played a telluride and that list includes parasite. It's a korean movie about a poor family. That secretly moves into a rich families basement and starts to take over their lives. It's directed and written by bong jun. Ho who made osha back in may parasite won the palm door at the cannes film festival. I talked bomb at an outdoor theater in telluride and he talked about winning the award through his interpreter interpreter sharon choi hung yoga chimp topic junior seau community so this year marks the hundredth anniversary of korean cinema and a lot of people discuss custody award as a historical gift to celebrate it and i think it was an incredible coincidental amazing gift but i do think that <hes> korea should have received this award earlier. There have been a lot of amazing korean film directors like kim jong who directed the house made and i think relatively compared to japan and china korean films were spread to the western world a little bit late finally a lot of really good documentaries. Mary's premiered at telluride including a movie called the king-maker. It's by lauren greenfield and it's about imelda marcos and you might think that marcos has nothing to do with a philippines anymore but you'd be very wrong. Imelda marcos was back in the philippines as a congresswoman which i was kind of amazed that it was almost as though if we could imagine nixon coming back and running for office <hes> she had left accused of stealing five to ten billion dollars left in shame the united states.
