A Quest to Extend Life through Early Disease Detection
"Joe thanks for joining us here. We're gonna talk about quenching. Its effort to use technology to detect disease at its earliest stages. And it's audacious goal of extending life by ten years within a decade a i. I'd like to start with the u. Quenching grew out of a a lab that iran uc berkeley You have a masters in economics and a master's in psychology. Your career began in the advertising industry. With w p p and omnicompetent. How did you find yourself working with artificial intelligence and next generation sequencing to transform medicine. Well in a way. It's the circus is closing. So when i was born. I was born into a household of scientists and my mom and my dad bio scientists microbiology Next plank bene- germany and my whole life. All the way up to nineteen was busy just biosciences. I heard it every every day. Counted always intriguing. Not intriguing enough to make me study medicine. Which goes of the wanted me to but i found other things also interesting is typically economics in psychology and so for the first nineteen years busy got the not just a crash caused very intensive course off mike about d by chemistry and so i was very familiar with a whole field then decided you know the other things too in the world that i wanted to explore the advertising and marketing angles more random because i was moving on the strategic side of things and from there i found actually even though i loved you know thinking about innovation and growth. Which was my my main objective. At these elijah marketing firms. I felt more drawn to a financial side of things in it's via transition more into kind of strategic planning and finance. These are very large organizations of it by their doing marketing. Also have wbz's in two thousand employees. It's not a small firm and from there you know i did some strategic acquisition things for them and they had gotten in touch with startups a lot and i decided i wanted to actually switch sides and doing do something much more. Entrepreneurial did this worldwide in the us young then the entertainment circuit beck abbas busy looking at different industries from more from an investment perspective and you know biotechnology became more and more important Starting two thousand fourteen fifteen because some sequencing confidence of sequencing innovation and a and cloud systems reach a critical mass that enabled you know something. That's amazing new age of precision medicine. And you know. I was looking had multiple industries but that really caught my eye and brought back these memories from my first nineteen years and i felt very comfortable jumping a little deeper in looking at different technologies and then by a series of coincidences led to the point where i realize now we are truly at this complete in point in medicine and biotech and then all these things came together right my my bio bake around my financial background in my date of bakery digital bitten finance and Ended was as perfect confluence of really liking biology and details of sequencing on the chemistry left side But also the combination with complex cloud systems artificial intelligence and of course business model innovation. Which was a part of my career. These ten years of graduating college Yeah there's all comes together in this would be the future of medicine. He was gone gene. And our ambitions goto extent you the human life span by ten years within the next ten years and dad's executive technology stack. You need to do that. You need biochemistry. Sequencing cloud systems ai in a deep understanding of business model innovation. The company as i mentioned has rather ambitious goals for transforming medicine. What's wrong with the practice of medicine today. It must be ironic. Miss you asking there. But i can. I can outline that. The biggest there are two things that are really wrong about what's happening today. And these two things resulted in you know. Hundreds of thousands of american lives being lost every year. Like talking about covid. This is a much much. Bigger problem in kuwait. Just has guesses so two things wrong. Unim- on the medically process sites that the feet of medicine still fundamentally follows. The idea that medicine is about treating disease treating symptomatic disease and when you get how people die today. What are the biggest causes of death. It's cancer it's cardiovascular it's diabetes and metabolic diseases in its new problems. All of these are chronic diseases. And all of these diseases cannot be dealt with on a symptomatic basis. You cannot wait until you have alzheimer's and then try to do something about it. You cannot wait until you have late. Stage metastatic cancer. It's just too late so the first problem is ed. Medicine is reactive and symptoms driven when it needs to be proactive and prevention driven and ought to get their many things. Have to fundamentally change Need to be data driven the level of precision foreside statistical understanding to be a higher by by many many many magnitudes. That's problem number one. And the problem too is the business model of health care And i'm in the middle of this right now because we also started doing cooler testing and god reimbursement and things like that.

#1 Marketing Skill That Will Get You Hired in 2021 (Hint: Not SEO or PPC)
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. And I'm Neil Patel and today we're going to be talking about the number one marking skill that will get you hired in twenty twenty one and it's not SEO PPC. So what is it Neil? The number one skill that will get you hired in twenty twenty one is going to be creativity and you're probably wondering how the heck is this a marketing skill while as Andrew, chanoine one said our marketing channels eventually, Goto Shit in other words. The. Channels out there they're going to cause people to compete get crowded with you and when you end up doing things like that, they just get expensive and their heart approves Roi from but it doesn't mean that you can't do well as a marketer. You just need to be creative. You know an Eric and I have talked about this. When people are digging UNITA Zach you need to get creative and do some of the opposite of stuff or tests new unique stuff. For example, when Russell Brunson wanted to grow his podcast he was giving away free MP three players installing his podcasts on there to really help boost his numbers. That's example. Of, getting super creative and the list goes on on like one thing that I'm trying to do right now is working on our commercial strip. So we're going to start running television ads throughout the united. States and we're GONNA skill it up and just really go hard and hit really hard and branding people are going to be like meal. Why would you run television as your digital marketing agency everyone in your space talks about how digital is better than television sure. But Television does a better chance at branding than digital does so like just doing new creative things when competition is not willing to that's how you win in the long run. And, one thing we looked at in the past is if you open up the facebook Ad Library you can see that Russell Brunson who neil just mentioned he runs a ton of new creatives he's creating new stuff all the time it's new ad creative and it's new offers under concert rotating because there's banner blindness and there's also offer blindness while People WanNa keep saying the same thing over and over. So the thing is too if you look at response rates in terms of your engagement rates and conversion rates and all that you know it all starts to decline. Once, you have something working. So you have to immediately start them work on the next one, and so I remember for our consulting school program where we show agencies, how to get more clients. Basically, the one thing we struggled with was creative everything was subpar to click the rates were all under one percent for the longest time once we started look thinking about, okay. How do we make better creative? The team got together and our click the rates over two percent, right. So one of the things we look at at the top of funnel metric is what is Our Click through rate first and then not cutting finals down to everything else your conversion are your CPA numbers and things like that. So creative is by far the number one thing and it's hard to find people that are creative right now it's for whatever reason if you work in tech usually if you're gonNA demand generation, they're hiring you to just run paid ads right and then you might have someone that does some email stuff but there aren't people that are really well rounded understand copywriting psychology which all ties in with creativity as well. Right so at the. End of the day, you have to practice the stuff we've talked about a lot of books recommend around copywriting around Seo, things like that but you gotta become more well rounded and when you becoming well rounded and creative keep in mind that just knowing ideas to tasks in knowing solutions isn't enough you gotta be able to execute on them because if you can't execute an implement them without very little help, you're not going to do well, and like the people who are creative and can move fast are the ones who tend to do extremely well in the marketing world. Yet the final ad that's been critical for us around that program that I was talking about is we do a daily stand up every single day and we talk about creatives. We talked about iterating very quickly because you can't just wait if you start waiting a week every time you do you're you're spending in a good chunk of money while at the end of the day, you're not going to be able. To iterating quickly enough, and that's going to cause your performance to to fall apart. So that's just a side thing that you might want to consider if you are looking to scale a campaign. So that is it. For today

Concerns over food insecurity grow amid COVID-19 pandemic
"Has created an economic disaster for millions of families, one that the nation's safety that hasn't been ableto handle. Millions of people have been thrown out of work with no new jobs to be had, and many of the measures designed to help them. Things like supplemental unemployment benefits and eviction moratoriums have run their course. They engaged in a lot of necessary coping strategies and trade off folks. They're making difficult trade off between painter of food and medical care, food and utilities. Food and transportation and helping Jessica Hager is director of health and Nutrition for Feeding America, a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks and the country's second biggest charity, she says Before the pandemic about 35 million Americans or 1/9 of the population lived in households that were food insecure without the resources to get adequate food. Since mid March. It's gotten much worse family's air having to decide whether to pay the rent or buy food. Food banks are crowded. We have projected right now that there'll be 54 Million people are one in six could be sued and secured this beer in 2020. We've also projected that food and security Rachel increase in every single county in the United States in 2020, so this could be a 21 and three adults and one and two Children could experience it in Korea this time again due to that. Economic impact that has been in effect around the pandemic. No individuals whose job individuals relying on their savings to make their way through experts in hunger, No, that family's suffering from food insecurity have a variety of goto strategies to try to stretch scarce food dollars. Hagar says. 55% of food insecure families have used at least three of the strategies are things such as receiving help from friends? Purchasing an expensive unhealthy food, which we, of course know in the long term has an impact on health, telling their personal property where, if possible, which isn't for all, of course, but growing food in their own garden. Anticipate. Families have continue to engage and they trade off in coping strategies while also trying to manage the difficult circumstances of managing the disease and being out of social distance increased normally have even in normal times. Many families go in and out of hunger, depending on economic circumstances. But today a lot of people are gig workers or freelancers whose income is far from consistent. What is certainly common or not unusual for there to be seasonal food insecurity or one coming in and out of the security and that against you Point gig economy. It could be our essential workers who are farmers, and much of their income is based on seasonal rotation of crops. We also know of course, that folks began as they're making tree off. Sometimes their assets are coming in, and they're able to live off those for quite some time. But a situation may come or a health crisis cooker that's unexpected in that put someone in a food insecure state, though it does change depending on a variety of circumstances, and also note that we have a lot of built in inequalities within our structures institution in this country. And so though helpful, maybe doing Well and being able to make ends meet for many years. There may be the circumstances that change the last idiotic cetera. That family made their individual, maybe food insecure for a period of time until they're able to re secure that financial foundation for their life Being food, insecure, even for just a little while, is a major risk factor for poor health. A recent study in the sage journals shows that independent of all other factors, food insecurity, Khun drastically increase the chances of an early death. We found that the drift of the people in America who are secure Eventually have a high chance of dying from any cause of that heart disease. And that is a striking finding good extended dance of death for insecure people After 10 Years of increases, 50%. That's Dr John Dee, scooped on Donny, professor of Public Health at New Mexico State University co author of the study, not a sophisticated multiple models. Adjusting for different types of actors. And yet no matter how much you account for just being food, insecure from a few years after a long duration, profound impact on someone's help. On the train, the heart, the liver, the kidney, and so any cause of death is more prominent in for insecure people essentially being food, insecure challenges your body medical autism, and then you're depending on your supply in the body, putting supplies. And those declining over time and eventually the challenger system so heavily but a liver stops function and people underground Club Gen. Donny says the increase in heart disease death as a result of food insecurity is especially striking 75% greater over 10 years than in people who are not food in secure. The reasons are fairly clear. Cheaper foods are generally less heart healthy. And there are few things more chronically stressful than not knowing where your next meal is coming from when an individual is going through this difficult and very stressful, my nontoxic, stressful experience that if they're making a stray off, perhaps again purchasing, inexpensive and healthy food That can lead to perhaps previously controlled diet related diseases becoming uncontrolled, uncontrolled diseases. Such a society that can lead to complications like kidney disease, identities and nerve damage. Often food insecurity and poor health combined to create a vicious cycle with no way out. If someone enters a cycle of food, insecure or their household is experiencing an unexpected and extensive medical crisis are often forced to engage in the financial coping strategies. And it includes the consumption of cheaper foods often that are hiring calories. But Lauren nutritional value and the reliance on the left healthy food can lead to poor nutrition and chronic diet, really, and diseases. Ensuring these diseases can worsen existing disabilities or other illnesses and results in an inability to work and bring in that previously the cheese income. What's more, the
IRS extends deadline to register for federal stimulus check
"Of headlines on the business front today, wth E i. R s is reaching out. This is actually from Terry Savages column and she's going to join us next week. Terry will be here next Wednesday. The IRS is reaching out to approximately nine million Americans who deserved a stimulus check but didn't get one likely because they earned too little to have filed a tax return and are not on the government's benefit lists like Social Security, disability SS I stuff like that. Just maybe nine million people out there that are supposed to get a stimulus check. Still have not. The IRS is trying to tell people that did not get that $1200 but should have received it. That they have until and they've moved this now. November 21st to register. You can go toe I rs dot gov slash corona Virus Last non filers enter payment information here anyway. If you goto iris dot gov slash corona virus. If you did not get a stimulus check, there's still hope that you could Right? And they just move that yesterday. Actually, I think that yesterday, maybe with Monday they the IRS. It was originally October 15th, which was a week from today. That you had to actually get your information into the IRS. And by the way, if you just Goto iron back up, there's actually a link right on the home page right at the top. That says non filers enter payment info here, and that's where you go to get this. I'm very pleased that Terry's obviously covered this and that we've pushed Deadline back. I think every nine million people not get their $1200 is a very important number and it would. It's just a shame that so many people I haven't had access to that cash so smart move on the part of the eye arrests and I hope people will go to IRS stock tub and feel free to investigate their how they can get that money. Congress has not agreed upon a second stimulus check. I don't know. Are you reading the tea leaves out there? If and when is that going to happen to you guessed Terry or ah, police. I guess I would say John, that we're definitely going to have some sort of. If I had to read the tea leaves. We only have three weeks left the election. I think there's a lot of pressure on to get something done in the next three weeks. And I would think from President Trump's side that he would want to be able to boast about getting another deal done, and that's been his M O right. He's dealmakers get the deal done. I think the Democrats also want to help people that really driven but that there is just a huge amount of pain going on. Right now. We talked earlier about the number of people who are unemployed. The continuing numbers are frightening. More than 25 million Americans. They're filing some sort of unemployment claims weekend week out. We're seeing, you know 850,000 roughly people filed for first time unemployment claims. Plus the P way on top of that the pandemic unemployment assistance another 1,350,000 you're looking at, like a million and a half people who every week filing for some sort of assistance. And the number of people who are now food and secure closing in on 20%. So you know, I think the Democrats you're motivated. I sure hope the administration is motivated. Feels like we should be able to get something done in the next couple of weeks. You hoped I think you have caused to be mad at both
Supreme Court wary of letting states regulate prescription drug 'middlemen'
"The Supreme Court began its 2020 term this week today, a case involving prescription drug prices. The issue is whether federal law prevents states from regulating middlemen known as pharmacy benefit management managers or PM's. Here's a minute of the oral argument. This is the Chief Justice John Roberts, questioning the Arkansas solicitor General Nicholas Brownie. Counsel. Your basic point, it seems to me is that the law regulates drug prices. That's certainly the purpose of it. But what it doesn't say anything about drug prices instead. It talks about what plans have to pay for benefits, the methodology of determining the amount to be paid the timing and procedures for updating payment schedules. The dispute resolution process is remedies. It has things like authorizing, declining to dispense. I mean, at the end of the day, all this might have an impact on drug prices. But it seems to me that it's very different on DH. Those differences really do Goto what Risa is Trying to regulate Your Honor, I I think at the end of the day, the one thing that affects plans and in fact, the only way in which that Arlo actually affects plans, it might alter what plans ultimately paid. Our law does not apply directly to plans are laws directed at PB EMS. On DH. What pm's pay pharmacies. So in that sense, the only effect on a plan or the only effective plan might see might be the possibility that at the end of the day, it might pay a little bit more. But that's the same thing that was true in travelers and travelers when New York regulated what commercial insurers or pain hospitals with the third charges This court acknowledged that the odds were that those surcharges would be passed on to the plans and that might affect how the the benefits packages that the plane might choose to offer. It might influence the choice of administrator but What the court emphasized, is at the end of the day that that's just cost, and it might influence shopping decisions. But ultimately, what's important is it's not dictating substantive planned decision making, and the same thing is true here. We haven't dictated how plans resolve anything. We haven't dictated playing decision making about what to provide or how to provide it or anything like that. All of the mechanisms that your honor referred to really are mechanisms that are PBM mechanisms. The plan. I don't have any insight into any of that stuff and again From a plant's perspective, the only impact will be on prices just like it was true and travelers.

First presidential debate: Key moments and takeaways
"He won't ever look, unite and say that's what he wants to do. Take it away. I want to give numbers healthcare at a much lower price. Because I know how he doesn't know how to fix tea is never offered to do it Extent you like Waas. A lot of that there was name calling there was arguing the moderator had a really tough time keeping control of it all. One San Diego man was watching it last night. He was observing as someone who coached a candidate for president in a debate buried to Goto. Hey, Good morning is Madonna and yes, it is so you can Nice to get a chicken. Well, thank you, sir. You are a coach for Jimmy Carter Back in the 1976 debate against incumbent Gerald Ford. You've seen many debates. You've been part of them. Was this a debate last night or a disaster or both? Well, you're right about that. I've been watching these debates since 1960 participating in some, and the first is a citizen. And now I'm back to being a citizen. So six years of experience, so I thought last night was sort of Ah, Forgive me for tipping my hat here, but as a citizen, I thought it was a gentleman versus the bully. San And most important, I was very disappointed in my own friend Chris Wallace, the moderator, who seemed somehow to not be able to keep control of the debate. But that begs this question, though. You know when you're when you're talking about two. I mean, these are two brawlers. Let's face it both Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Are really good street fighting kind of guys in a political fashion. How is any moderator going to keep control over those two particular men? Well, that's their job. The moderator's job keep control. And as I said last night, I thought you had the since I've been watching it for 60 years. I thought you had a bully versus a gentleman. But I am back to being a citizen now so I can understand why President Trump took the tone and the demeanor he did, and I thought that Biden I had a couple of chances. Ah, throw a punch or two, but he didn't do that. He stayed back. And in that regard, I think you could say that President Trump helped his base. Particularly when he talked about white supremacists. And when he was didn't help us with our fire fires here in California, But Ah Ah, you're right. Ah, Donna, it would be a tough job for any moderate So let's talk about and you said Trump did well for his base. Let's talk about whether this particular debate would change anybody's mind at this point. If you're voting if you're a Biden guy, or if you're a trump guy, did any of what you heard last night matter or change your mind? Oh, no, not if you'd already made up your mind. Although there does we do have this concert containing concern about the fair election, which President Trump keeps trying to sew. But apart from that, you know, the president did tell his white supremacist voters to stand by and he didn't help is on the On the fires. So, ah, Susan out here in California. I was not impressed with President Trump. And on the other hand, I wish I had wished that Biden had thrown a few more punches when he had a

U.S. Agency Urges End To Below-Minimum Wage For Workers With Disabilities
"So for eighty two years American labor law has had a carve out for some workers with disabilities they paid less than minimum wage. This was meant to encourage employment of more people today a top federal civil rights watchdog says the exemption should end because it's been trapping workers in job programs they call exploitative and discriminatory NPR's Lena Seljuk reports. Jerry. Douglas Dino had a job but couldn't afford a few things he wanted to do like go out to eat sometimes. Vase Goto events. He was working alongside other people with disabilities at a center in Rhode. Island. Doing what he calls bench work road tasks like fitting rings into heating tubes packaging ice packs assembling boxes for jewellery. If I remember correctly by I by first paycheck was only twelve bucks I just cautioned myself as you know. I really don't WanNa keep doing what my whole life Doug AC- now works at a supermarket where his paycheck is a lot more than twelve dollars total but he spent years in that center which made him below minimum wage. Thanks to that carve out in the labor law centers like that are often called sheltered workshops because they keep people with disabilities a separate cluster their pay is estimated to average three dollars and thirty four cents an hour to calculate individual pay. The centers regularly time their workers comparing how fast they do tasks to inexperienced non-disabled worker half as fast half the pay. Now, the US Commission on Civil Rights says this program and the law should be phased out in short the program doesn't work and it is designed in a way that it can't work Kathryn Lehman chairs the commission she says instead of expanding opportunities, the programs limit them don't really prepare people for work in the community jobs with rights wages I was. I was ashamed of the ways that we have operated. Now over a decades, a federal assumption that people with disabilities are less capable. Full employment than people without disabilities, a lot of data are missing about sub minimum wage programs including how many people they employ estimates range from one hundred, thousand to four times that most have intellectual and developmental disabilities. Commonly, the programs run by nonprofits, they get state and federal money to support these jobs many of them have government. And their most vocal supporters are some of the workers families who won the programs to remain an option a safe environment for relatives with disabilities. One mother Linda how from Wisconsin testified before the Civil Rights Commission in November we are parents with our son's best interest at heart. And you suggestion that we would allow him to be taken. Advantage of are discriminated against is an insult families like hers helped workshops flood the commission with a record number of comments asking to lead the programs be some described workers with quote severe disabilities worried about where they go Lehman says, that is why her agency is recommending a careful gradual phase out disability rights advocates have wanted such A. Phase. Out For years the point to success stories of people thriving outside of the systems that underestimated them, and you'll Lewis fights against sheltered workshops at the National Federation of the blind testified about his past work running one thinking he was doing the right thing and because misguided compassion these individuals spend significant part of their lives wasting away in that workshop making money for our center but wasting away. And I am sitting here. Really feeling sad about what I perpetuated because there is a better alternative four states have abolished sheltered workshops to support more jobs in the community. Seven states have moved to end wages below the minimum several federal bills trying to do so on a national level have so far failed. Alina. So you NPR, news Washington.

Trump dismisses climate change as cause of fires as western wildfires stop at Canadian Border
"Sacramento, President Trump made it clear that he believes the key to preventing more wildfires is with new forest management techniques. Here's what he told reporters and McClellan airpark. It is our featured audio clip this hour. They also have to do cuts. I mean, people don't like to do cuts, but they have to do cut in between. So you do have a fire and it gets away. You'll have a 50 yard cut in between, so it won't be able to catch to the other side. They don't do that. If you go to other countries, you goto, Austria. You goto, Finland, You goto many different countries and they don't have private. I was talking to a head of a major country. And he said, We're a forest nation. We consider herself a forestation. This was in Europe. I said, that's a beautiful term. He said. We have trees. They're far more explosive. He meant explosive in terms of fire, but we have trees that are far more explosive than they have in California, and we don't have any problem. Because we manage our far so we have to do that in California, too, is broader point is we have to look at other countries, not just Europe, By the way, Canada have you seen a map of the fires that are burning along the West Coast, and they're burning all the way from Southern California all the way up to Washington, right to the border with Canada, and then nothing. I stuff nothing above the border. So I mean, if it is climate change, and only climate changes, climate change stopped at the border, right? Well, and
ICYMI: Zoom alternatives
"Spent the week looking at zoom alternatives. This was in response to what happened on Monday when Zoom went out for three and a half hours causing all those remote workers and all those students on their first day of school to start screaming what am I gonNa do what am I going to do? Well, there are several alternatives out there I don't think any of them are is easy to use in as smooth as as zoom, but if it ain't workin. Let's look at some of the other ones Google meet Webex skype Microsoft teams, facebook messenger rooms, gotomeeting whereby discord and Gypsy. Let's start with Google meat. That's the most heavily advertised. Google. Is really pushing it hard. It's kind of a bare bones, but it works APP it'll do you find the features are not there in meat like are in zoom for the best feature though is this automatic transcription feature which sounds pretty cool until you ask Google if you could save the transcripts and they say, no, you can't nor can they translate? Google will one day get their act together. Well, that's from Cisco is the best all around alternative it was originally a APP, the charge you money. Now, you can get a free version for. Beatings up to an hour after that, you have to start paying it has all the tools you want. It's pretty simple to use. So I really liked that one suggested check it out skype is the granddaddy. It's the one that started all always been confusing hard get people to connect with you on skype unless they have the APP and you have the APP and they you have to approve them and it's like the fate facebook buddy system where you have to welcome them in. Once they're welcome in it's great but the the the snag is connecting. Microsoft teams is built for corporations for enterprises and If you work at a company everybody in the company has Microsoft teams and since notes back and forth to each other video is sort of an afterthought. It works best if it's someone in your organization Facebook Messenger Rooms, this is facebook's zoom killer I don't think. So the idea is pretty good. You can have a private conversation with as many people as you want to have it with. But by fault that conversation goes to your news feed for everyone to see and everyone to join in, you're going to have to tweak some stuff in there to get it. To be private I'll skip that one goto meeting against solid. It's free for up to three participants that may not be enough for you whereby is very interesting. It's Norwegian company It's really best for one to one chats. The free version will only let you chat with up to four people. After that, you'll have to pay ten dollars a month, but overall I really liked it and sharing was really easy it's worth checking out discord is really aimed at gamers. They would like other people to start using it they. They say it's good for Yoga classes in school clubs, but there's been a lot of heat of. On on the service so I would I would use one of the other ones. Finally Gypsy. This is nerd paradise it's open source it's totally free. But it's so nerdy that if you WANNA, record your meeting they say great go to a live stream on youtube and then you can watch it there. That's not for me I'll stick with zoom again the all around. Best APP, when it works and if it doesn't work, I'm probably going for Webex.

It's been nice to revisit that also working a little bit on their release. Komen say and I'm beside stunt a project to restoring films from the coaxes in Central Asia. We did the XFL the restoration company with trump worked on many films including SCHOEPP scheme. But off shake we've been restoring the out takes from the color of pomegranates and presenting them just to contradicts everything. We said in the PODCAST. Now I can be pretentious Wanka yet. We make out two outtakes so that that that was presented in Rotterdam Film Festival in in Yerevan last year. Now we're making a vision which can travel and so Yeah that's what's been keeping my position. It's very difficult to talk about travel. And this particular moment isn't it and can't when you're not out there winning run to award sweater you up to. Oh Sam poem for this show. Yeah this is the last appearance of Ken Ellen Jer on the projection booth. She's going to get a new chair. Get some beige paint for her room.

I'm like a kind of Queen Monster Kit Queen we are among royalty and obviously eleven thousand boot projects of determined to finish it this one in lock dying because I just don't get all these people suddenly like. I'm so creative writing these novels and all I've been able to do is sit there staring at the wall or watching seventies romantic comedies. Like that say and eating of cheesecake when I can get shopping deliveries that that was one of the Nice things about maybe on nicest throat wet but the it was a relief because there was literally hundreds of films which were off chick talked about Mike King and when he deposited a big part of his archive in the cinematheque before he died book When he when he did die we vocalized dominate The secretary who worked on the script of the adopting French of Goto. We put these papers into order before putting them into the cinematheque and a ten out most of these projects which is basically like priced at night with the Tikal over and maybe like one page. I thought that that makes you fail. You know maybe not more productive but not as unproductive confessed super upset because basically seen hardly find the time to do all of this and there was a lot of material. Ryu is a crazy amount of stuff for films which would not made but at the same time. Yeah a lot of those which is titles. Well the whole idea of borough of doom bovery. Just been e- `perfect person I read about or don't you mentioned it but this I don't know what happened with the project but Neil snowden from publishing at one point was flow in a book project but right is right about fictional film so something that was conceived but never got into script development and I think the project still going on down the line but that was what I picked because I just thought that would be the one film.

He's tight but he's kind of slightly sentimental and you know a bit Maudlin the planning these children's games with their on the Bait Shen. She mothers him over. She does love him. She loves Garner. And you know it's I think it's very interesting. The Cart tries the governor. Because yeah he he's not the monster. I think the reason he turns down the government is the real. The real monster is Grosso. What helps to appear. Bresser is playing the governor and even when he is monstrous like he is in is without a face. You still sympathize with him so I think having a different person in that role or if he had played it heavier would have really turned us off from him. But he's there and he doesn't come off as completely evil and meanwhile grosso is just always conniving always looking for the angle and when he actually sets up those dogs to take a fall and has them executed. It's like you can't get much worse than my book. I know that he wanted to eat Trojan place. He actually need constant based is. The father is originally wanted the role of the governor on. I know that there was a lot of fighting. Going on between chicken. Breast was drinking quite a lot to this stage to assistance whose job it was just to make sure he didn't drink too much. The I think he died with three years later. The give a seventy two thanks Ali and but but the I don't know about you but I always I encountered these films quite close together. I've always associated is for that face. With time uninviting I think e e conflict a number of parallels with Fain Fron Shoe on borough chicken particularly the controller. Moore the film he made with Jumpy Monkey. And you have all these contractions. You got the scene at the end when when She lets out older the the dog. Switzer in those cages. Leon she let out to the laboratory. The very end of the film awoke off. And you have the animals the dog's in particular running out across the Bay Chen that both fairytale as well and we're branch sheets while the dove in eyes without a face and then the dove symbolism of the deaths in in branch and this idea of women being trapped they saw very fatalistic. Dumont thing these women being the MRI while annoys faces. The father being trapped being stuck in these horrible kind of night Mazraa things are just happening to them. Ever is definitely a like a parallel of course frontier broth check. Had this I mean. Of course he's one of the car condos the French cinematheque and along with on long while he's kind of responsible for saving lots of this kind of very early silent cinema and of course he remakes. One of the cereals. So you actually having a fell mega. Who's having this dialogue with his very kind of early cinema but but finding a new way to make films in the mood of cereal or let the Po box in a in a modern way. And and I think that there is a parallel lantern. Of course Tarum Lottie Eisner who who is working at the Chairman Jerry Cinema critic who was working in Paris She she was the the the. The critically was fighting. Took the Saadoun this Alexa. She wrote personally to off. Check commenting on the beginning of the film in Poland's and comparing the situation in Poland in the wills Depicts is to what she experienced in Nazi Germany Crystal? And things like this so it is fascinating how you're having pay. It's like a rush imprint. The way that you having off the audience conceiving the film as a as a political allegory sort of a horrible. And then you have this ferry title aspect. I think that's really what gives the film. Its Javadi 'cause you have a film it's like I know a vita film about politics. It's obviously politics. Is it subject is about politics? That's that's the thing Whereas one I think Barack shake was doing an in some ways Joe Well taking changing it changing Coming up with a fairytale which may have resonance with contemporary Polish politics. So whatever's happening. The devil is a good example in that respect and I think it's true and guard so it could be. It could be a fairy tale. Exciting on Terry Gilliam trump as an amount caraway's huge funds goto program dated electrons. Festival is pulled. That called Blanche you had to Patrice. Leconte he was the biggest fan of rough check writing Qaida cinema articles on Cabal Goto. Which fantastic very very insightful. And interesting and important articles about the significance of those films so he was having this influence but the film and different things to different people. I think that's wonderful thing about it. Though I think is that you can read so many different things into it and people take away in the things that resonate with them a thing that goes back back to what we were saying about this idea with the physical removing language gives you the space to explore into to take different things away from it. Because you haven't go this very constrict spokane narrative that towns you exactly how you're supposed to think about something. He our audience off that freedom. Which is something you don't find in. Hollywood film to make their own minds up and take what they want from it and I think you know not respect. He was a very generous filmmaker because he offered. The audience is so much dictated to them. And saying this is how you should feel about the spam or this is this is. I made this film as I mean. I Love Vincent Tehran. He made the blood spot. Bright which is an allegory of Franco is Spain and he would talk about it and say well this means this and this was you know what I'm doing. This is very political realm. And it's fascinating but it doesn't then if the space to perhaps appreciate is a fairy tale based on the final because he emphasis on Spanish politics and ease on fascism. So it doesn't give you that not Riemann when Sammy did the commentary for that one for Mondo Macabre. This guy wrote view saying I didn't expect to Spanish history and political lassen this into this. Why can't we just appreciate the beeps and they said well you can. I mean that's the difference another different strange web skimmer object. The Weather Schwab. C was very happily. Give you a history. Lesson in an interview is key for unlocking the devil for example but on the other hand brought check not only went out of his way to to to to say what the film's not You Know He. He was amused so they were found in Spain. In Franco's Spain an in communist Poland. It's presented as a joke by him but he doesn't actually let he doesn't talk about. Politics explicitly interviews. It's not immediately clear His politics lie and It's it's it's kind of interesting to to think what the what the strength of the work is a doesn't have that interview in which the filmmakers size what it's about and I. I love evasive filmmakers. I'm once he would clearly just taking the PISS. I mean his oak. Does it these people coming in with Israeli pretentious kind of Wa? Is it that you're saying this? And they just kind of laugh and go while you know shelf-life you've you fell because If you have like goats or anything okay if you have a fairy tale a bounce tonight criminal that through persistence rises to be the ruler of his particular world that that certainly has a bearing on no contemporary American politics. Will Russian politics. You could cite. You could look at Film but then the day to fill up rigged election and embarrassed check himself described. The fell as a realist fell. He didn't call it a surrealist film just as a wasn't a case of just being perverse and say I don't make grossing films in the. Oh Yeah Right. This is a real is not being ironic. This is a realistic film. Is just that the. It's like a dream old bed. Surin slightly off kilter arrangements and things like this. The things that addresses of very realistic themes unrequited love the of experiencing or in a in a social democratic closed environment. Where there's no real feeling off change you know. It's not a dystopia. It's not a utopia to stasis. This is very much connected with the drama. The time a lot of critics drew parallels with animations with the playwrights UNESCO and settling back on anything that the kind of the Luke. Something like Goto it's interesting to look at how people were staging waiting for. Gado and they were giving people. Charlie Chaplin Esque Bowler hats and costumes As far as remember. That's not actually in the tax it was an interpretation. It's not a million miles away from that kind of visual approach. Which Baroque is this? Sort of sad melancholic echo of silent film comedies. But drown down to this kind of desolate timeless endless landscape recently. I was watching things the damage before I saw that recent as well and I think there's an interesting parallel you could draw between gutter and being the in the way that they are both about people who fell about. The ascendants is social mobility. So in the case of being that you got a gardener basically becoming the king-maker for the White House and you got a binoculars state becoming the ruler of totalitarian stikes in the case of Goto now being based on the novel by Escape it was always guessing into trouble because of plagiarism and not became the the narrative and everything else how he dealt with those accusations and a lot of pole. There was a lot of publish commentary when that came out about how he was very similar to a book which was very popular in Poland in the nineteen seventies. The career of Nicodemo Jima was There's been a couple of films on the TV series of it. pout a Search for climate who kind of makes a science and I. I don't know for certain but I do want to. If if that that book not story which was very popular and it sort of ended Polish consciousness. Describe particular person in this business. Nicodemus Jima. A greasy opportunist bicycling and may be the full concept to them was. How could he translate this into his world? How could he make it applicable to the world of which he'd experienced 'cause of course he? He went through the wool enforced labor and then went into a college which was then mid through his studies taken over effectively by socialist realism. The kind of visual imposition of Stalinism. Could you translate a story about opportunities into this strange world which may or may not draw heavily on the the Nova Huta building sites and the maybe these experiences in the wall may be something completely fantastic? So I've often wanted. That could be a possible inspiration interesting by three interesting although piece is like in being that it's an manipulative to is more like the idiot he. He's Nice I mean he's much nicer than in the original story. I'm talking the ATHOL. Nicotine is who who who who. Who's WHO's yeah much mall? But in in being that as she site he he's more this kind of like a euro developed a holy fool isn't he sits. It's it's interesting. I think these kind of flight. It's how to you may be what's interesting is have you draw on you'll you'll roots and express them in uniform. It was the case with with Joseph Conrad in the way that A lot of Polish commentators On a victory noticed clauses very influenced by the Stephanie? Drumskin AWFUL BITCH OFF JAKE made story of Senate on on you know what what Conrad brought to. The English literature was this kind of vast knowledge of Polish literature which was inflicted to the French language. And so you end up with filmmakers light light but off check who who is working on flourishing in France but that draw that bringing with them an approach graphics which was GonNa Foster Them Poland and approach to music which was fostered in Poland on blossom with artists like pomme Johnny Finding Dermont who says well? Maybe you should work with monkey. Maybe should work with this person. Not This may be. What about Alan Rene? We need to find a way of addressing cultural heritage but not being limited by Boroff chick himself got quite annoyed when people would say oh. Well you'll coming from the tradition of Bruno Schultz Aura. Vitkovice Gumbo veg on. He just just because I'm Polish Doesn't meal to the school and and it's the so the idea that well we have to look at these things more. Generally in the films which were exciting manure interests often German films which he was saying in Poland because because this is before communist takeover and he grew up in western Poland. And you had jim in films of French films. Talion fells King Kong. So the idea the idea that we make films and our field of vision is limited to the country in which we live in is really ninety. Because that's not how cinema work to international the way the autism international you can see an exhibition to the French painter..

"But wish she was the one thing that stands out to me not going too much into a tangent is was rescued women very emotional in these films and often the most emotional so the thing that I respond to in that is you know in our society. At least you know women can be a bit emotional but it has to be this socially conventional type of emotional supposed to get hysterical or show or get angry or be aggressively sexual. So I'm not saying he meant to put those things in these films. That is just the one thing that respond to it. Seems so anti convention to half a woman like Romy Schneider for example this huge Arcana French cinema dribbling and Grizzly and you know feels strange powerful to me. It's like a big fuck you so whole idea of how women should be presented in cinema which is always very tempered. You know are finding Cathartic to see someone nyc is about Johnny. Just going over parking nut in the subway because I think a lot of women feel like that. We're just not it's just not acceptable to like express that I guess you know we feel like that but we do it so I'm not saying that's what he was not obviously had a very complicated relationship. Women is how but as a byproduct of that last just something. I personally responded agree. Exactly with what you're saying that what I got on today's films is something very similar to what you're describing I'm just commenting on in. My limited dealings was certainly Borussia. Mole with I really did not in any way. have any feeling goal of the People. I've spoken to WHO On the Whiz like while I misunderstanding. Let's say with the the actresses story of sand. But I would say most of the crew brought you. Were where women in. That wasn't out of any sort of political gesture is recited with the people. He worked most effectively wizards as additives in his produces than his interests. Assistance and things like this perplexing full male film critics when they see a film which they they they feel they should condemn it. Because there's lots of objectify shots of female sexuality but the paradox is that yeah the reality is that I don't think he had a problem with anything? Boy He sold bitch a real warm fair for women in I see with lean. These are Anjum Rolan is while an even someone like Jess Franco and the last Three those of people that that you often get termed as misogynist just because they like to show women naked are automatically. That's misogynist and they can't be any of the reason for it it solely there for a male spectators. He's pleasure and I know it's like this thing. They're trying to be pc about and support women but she. What they're doing is saying you know women can be sexual because it's only for a man. Mano can be for the woman in south it can be for the women as well is not just one thing and I think off check and and as you can tell him in Gio. Ceo Making those comparisons with Joss. He was a little see a lot more cynical whereas broth check. I just see this very almost childish. Li-fu joy in in office work the same with Fellini. The problem comes from the fact that Well I think the problem comes from the fact that the identity politics of pretty much bowling ruined film criticism. I wonder what I mean by. That is that you take an idea light. Laura movies ideas the female gaze. Which as as as as an as an idea. It's fine as twelve issues that we have to distinguish between the idea in itself and the implications the idea now the idea in itself as it appeared the journal and the context eight. You may not agree with that. Point the point. Is You have to agree. This is an interesting idea. function The problem I think has happened when when the idea has been badly applied and a now now the term has gone mainstream anew having people using the salmon away which is what it sounds like as opposed to actually Emma to reading the paper. And you're ending up into this really reductive and quite brainless. I'm sorry to say that transcends gender it's like saying all audiences a completely passive and you just sat there receiving messages from some may or director. And it's like no. You're not passive when you film watching and making a film collaboration. So your the messages. You're taking away. Might not even be the messages. The director intended to put their it all depends and so you said it's become very reductive and I think Barack trek is one of those filmmakers. I've seen those people. Do the live tweets along things onto. I don't go onto a very match for the exact reason you know. People sort of doing tweets alongs to the beast and especially when that box that come on some strange lubar feminist anti male case site. Doing some sort of tweet alongside. They'd find some John. Rollin on netflix aches. They check and the stuff they will read in from. You know it was from this very kind of aggressive annoyed tone of look at the French man filming these naked women and under so no I just. I'm really sapped that you didn't get the same thing. The I date from a gets ridiculous that the situation was without getting further distracted as many was ridiculous. The ceremony with Whole and there was something I went onto facebook for about. I don't know a day when it was on the it was basically a people attacking clad Zinni for not talking Polinsky and that basically anything hang on so when it comes to I would say I don't know a role model of what a filmmaker should be let alone a woman filmmaker but a filmmaker. It's clydes any an hey. You are attacking this person's not doing what you want them to do or expanse too and then it was followed by these two things. That's so fucking French annot under that it was like well. This is not to toot adulthood by women of age soothing. Hang on Ryan. We're trying to trying to hit. The racism is okay and ageism is fine thank you see the irony here and that's why I don't think think it's just like it's like the the dying days of Al Qaeda all these people will descend caves just basically slaying each other for not being pure and often that kind of handling the ten the female gaze are what is like internalize misogyny which is another term. I hate because it's basically saying that she would agree with my stance on things. Everything else that you think it's been told to you. You've been brainwashed now actually. They're my fucking thaw. The problem I think with with this idea and approaching a film like so Shakoor Skis. Say for example How how does this way of looking? You know. The the mail goes effectively? Objectify buying the stunned because he said it explicitly. The women become almost like you know kind of Avatars for his and you look at like possession the the the some Neil character is definitely not the NFL watching the film it is like he's making the films like Dis. Look the predicament. Nece disguising not interest on focused the mark. Nieto courage decipher all. The energy goes into the female characters. Yeah we talked about on our episode title of Managers Insurance. He's films a very passive and the women by contrast have all this rage syndrome chooses. Women is his mind peace to express a lot of that and I just find it fascinating the Manenberg tricks phones and the Emmy you take offense Rosalie which we've already talked about. The focus is on Rosalie she's talking. Cheese made pregnant by the master of the House and guy abusing his positions socially in the house he got the dog got pregnant. She's got no economical financial means and so she buries them and yet and yet she is in codes on charges of effectively childhood. So you're having a situation whereby fell Mica? The way in which you present the story really dictates your particular political leanings and also your attitudes toward women on and it's the whole family is constructed around embassy report understanding of Rosalie and it's in no way the buster. The story is Is The guy who we don't see on screen as the photo that extend on to to boasts particularly Goto and blanche in the way that It's symbolism but it's almost like a graphic shoal tons like the way he cuts in the opening titles between the castle and then Blanche's Padova cage. I mean it's we get it. She she's trapped you know but you know it's a storytelling so very visual way of saint have predicament. But you realize this is a story about a a woman who doesn't have any chance and manage is GonNa fight surrounded the whole thing's GonNa Destroy. And then she and she she. She commits suicide. Almost as a you know a almost a self sacrifice and you having this Christian Immaterial throughout the film. The idea that you know in order to stop this violence. She does which is just terrific. Very pessimistic in depressing conclusion. And it's the similar thing I it's it's it's it's glossiest sexuality. She doesn't initiate anything but the very thing that she penetrates into the the brain of Grosso starts to motion this whole violence rice power which involves these elaborate schemes admit. She's not responsible for that. The fact that basically the film Climax with this moment she gets chased to the top of this building and basically looks at grows Matching a life. You know is kind of the governor's wife another guy. He doesn't have any feelings for in constand or suicide Clearly chooses suicide you thinking well. Is this a happy ending you know? She's she's escaped but it won't cost and then as she did because she opens her eyes About Book Yeah. It's very bizarre. And and yeah you kind of think. Well no the. The film is very much although the focus the narrative focus is on Grosso Chick actually like is he. A hero is an anti hero. What is he doing? He said I personally admire his cutting his determination. But he's an absolute slimy busted Israeli. Horrible I can't say I sympathize with him at all he. He's a strange character because I don't even know he is an anti hero because I don't know maybe it's just because of me. He's he's like to me scarfs. His character the respond to the most even though she is almost. On the periphery feel although she also becomes the catalyst. It's her character. You seems to be the purest in the most heroic when she jumps off and she makes that choice. That's the way I find that. Very powerful that she makes his choice. Even those also sat ultimately side is while because she is literally the only character you cannot should he sympathize with everyone else is just so horribly corrupt and and you know. Jocelyn in the power struggle to get to the top of this chain where you get to own. A pair of binoculars is it is almost approaching black and the idea that chula she she literally would rather be dead than than sitting on a chair. out it's the ultimate regal. I literally I M taking myself out this in head you know. Even that's GonNa stop you know. Yeah it's the focus you. She is the focal points of the. She's she said that the the thing which initiates the story she's the the motor an. It's not necessarily you know it's just the fact she house on these people the fact that the emperor is not a bad guy he's I mean yes..

"Guilty. Nothing really guilty about blown about Brown. She's fouts WHO's overseeing big. Well I'm sure he he certainly has. I think it's In the case of When you look at that what he was doing in the company of Wolves and I think that yeah it's where those references Inspirations on I think it's also defined. The company was one of the first productions of of police pictures which of course grew onto the scholar cinema and of course. Barack Jake's films were a kind of a mainstay of the scholar programming because they were perfect functioning by this is kind of Helms Yeah exploitation films. Because that's how broach distributed in the UK delight to once they were distributed by a distributable new realm which also distributed possession. But that they were not they made the money. I think distributing Emmanuel Boakye they were not film distributors. Yeah it's really fascinating when you read Sunday night. Car Is the bloody chamber. You can see so much brought checking this idea if women transcending becoming beasts and things like that. There's a definite and when I finally finish this booker wanted can introductory essay exploring all this this facination with animals and was so obsessed with objects as well duet. When did she write the sodium woman when key rival warranty? I think yet. 'cause she she that was that was after she came back on during the time she was in Japan. Is that right? Yeah so you have but it is interesting when you actually have on. I think this is in this. Particular climate with a lot of the discussions happening about Sexual Latino films about how selves invite and. I think if you contrast the debate which is taking place at the moment with the debate that was taking place. Let's say immediately after nineteen sixty eight. Because it's the year Ghardaia was produced. You have a slightly more Families to kind of CORTEX among the Bufa on you had Okay whatever you say about the sawed. At least he recognized women as something other than baby making machines and sign Sexuality is something to be embraced on anything that you had Polling the deal through the story of how You have you having this is treated Is kind of like right? Which term in France and you having Graham Greene saying that this is literature. Sorta was this kind of plurality a different feminism's different approaches to to to sexuality and Of course I think a film like a Goto. I'm particularly `blanche is interesting in the way that basically in `blanche literally the film about a bunch of men kind of Shifting around a a kind of a hopeless objects I mean. `Blanche has no possibility in social structure. She can't do anything he's just a perpetual victim but had beauty and Awakens this inherently aggressive sexuality in older men around and brings about this disaster so she's a catalyst for this disaster but at the same time. It's not blaming it for. It's just that she's the beauty. Her everything is the the flying which starts this fire and it's accepted the Simon Artaud in the idea that you realize that Goto I mean at the end of the story is about thieving little sheds. Who understands the system in which he lives and he proceeds to manipulate system to try and get what he wants and he doesn't get it so you could stay on the one hand this is. This is a film made by a poll in France in nineteen sixty eight so of course the Poles. So that this this best. It's making fun of what it's like to live in communist Poland because post-communist Poland as as its contemporary poll and it's full of corruption and cronyism and incompetence and So you could actually look at the film almost like a satire on this kind of the actual flying Even coal the nineteen sixties in Poland the destabilization period of undergo MOCHA. So you could look. The film is some sort of comments on this kind of stasis whether Utopian vision is ground to a halt on. We're just kind of locked into this repeating sissies like cycle aware. Nothing actually happens in Tibet like today. What will this will this? Kind of? lockdown situation. Which rolling will they ever end and all the blur into one so you could look the film in a political way in Poland but at the same time it's not limited to that? It's so much more and I think the idea of the fell. Mrs SORTA fairytale structure. That's what excites you. Dangelo Carter and Marina Warner writes about. It's a Beast of the blonde along with `Blanche. Sorry having the these films which. Janeane something different people and of course the very people who have celebrated these types of films as as fairy tales about What it's like to be a woman in this situation meet tossed drama. There is the element today solves anything. That's what was interesting into Angela Carter. But of course a few years later when feminism A more aggressive kind adopted by a somebody like woken which has no kind of room actual for the idea of any full of pornography's whatever is being pornography is inherently bad and destructive so and then of course. Now we're back in a situation of this kind of puritanical view in which basically the fam- UNISOM associated with And Sponge perform all these people is is considered Olsen wrong. Yes see that is why response to Barack checks film so much and I know certain course of Corden misogynous still. They've misread the films but one thing that I initially responded to any sperms. Was this very Carta Rask sexuality which she oh she was obviously influenced by these things that we've been talking about but they saw idea that he would often expose the systems oppress women. He would expose double standards. He tended to women's Sexuality's very pure thing that was contained by these corrupt male oppressive or class-based stretchers. And and. Then you got something. Dr Jack Hall which is incredibly perverse and transgressive. And that's all about the strength of female sexuality so I think we often seat to like oppress women's sexuality because it's so powerful any any end to stood da but it's like we shouldn't we ever de sexualize women completely or we make the sexualization of women. This terrible crying instead of accepting the idea that women Camby sexual and even in something like Goto we see Garcia is somebody who has her own sense of sexuality and her trajectory as she just wants to be involved in this love affair. She just wants to see a lever oversee. She's punished for that. In some way by jealous mom will potentially about be punished by one jealous. Mom and then another jealous. Mon- takes over so way from the like the political things. The reason I always combat to this film is start fairytale quality and the and the very soul female feminine sexual elements that are in all of his films there. No you get this idea boroff. Check the pornographer you know. He's looking at women's bottoms. Objectify women but I've never found that from his films. I've seen his films of women that are trying to be free an often. They become free. Noor able to start. You see in convent walls for example so you get this sense of women trying to free and so it's not this commission pornography. The is just you know made to titty assertain. Audience is no. It's not about data. I think it goes a lot deeper than that. I think in that respect. He's very pro women I can see. Why car responded to that we read. Sodom woman is all about that and she's famous quote about disarmed. You know whatever you WanNa say about me argued for women women's rights and fucker way into history. And you know so it is thought saying sense of our cartoons so of feminism. I seen these films. The often gets blown aside. You know by people talking about feminism and they automatically say oh this is a man and he's objectify women and he should student for his own obsessions thank. It goes a lot deeper than that. The problem with those whole debates a the fact that I think the problem with the word. Feminism is the same problem is the way pornography in the way that they need no sing. I mean you have to explain what you mean by them. So that you the person you having the conversation with is aware of the temps in which I think that the question which is on the incident Portland station is sexuality as subjects as opposed to a means to an end. The pain was power life. Isn't it sexualities? Part of life and broth check is always framed it as just part of life part of existent. Yeah passing news the same Fellini broached on Fellini but I see similar things symphony while between broth. Check him fleeing also was really humorous as well and often find human very dark Subject matter yeah and somebody saw things very visually like fleeing he would always star and he started as an artist in comex is while and booth away. Start his films ideas. Which films with a picture that you draw a face on a piece of paper announce how you know sore things very visual? But it's definitely this connection this very sensual this way. It's not like you said taking sexuality and making anything that can sell a pitcher. You know the Sperry again a very intellectual concept of what. You shouldn't shouldn't say it's something that's more instinctual something that it's just part of life and I think often when it comes to cinema women aren't given the the space to have sexual life unless it's part of some other agenda whereas in influencing broth check and even she ask as well. Saks is just often part of everything else is just part of being a human issue is relationship where women is is much more complicated than drove away the bicycling. I. I think it's very interesting that it would appear that deselms Pale massively to a female audience. That's great.

"France and of course Marc Polish but she made these discoveries in front some nice show up on a lot of people think that trump in America area French. How important is this national thing and if we ascribe importance to it it kind of takes us down a road wet by. We look a Goto his political allegri whereas on the other hand a lot of other people were seeing a Like Angelo Carta was sing it as a fairy tale which close ties in with much. Realism Joie Ski He wrote two very interesting article in positive magazine in the Nineteen Hundred S. Any set something which just think applying spoke to his cinema but also object. He said that A The with Fellini Fellini opened chapter. If I'm history whereby he found the fantastic in the miraculous in everyday life which causes the same faces of matching realism. But he then said that while he told the next chapter in film. History is making the absurd in the strange fantastic realistic and of course stop is a very good way of looking at possession. I mean you you. You have a monster in your bad. You just trades each as a society opera and it's it's it's no longer. It's no longer a thing in a Spielberg movie. It's it's something you have to deal with during divorce and a similar thing with with with Borussia in the idea that you talked about the strange instruments at the beginning yes. It's bizarre. It's off center. It's off kilter Econo- get a What you get from. It's something a bit like a cello and you have in the film. You have all of these strange slightly off putting bizarre things but at the same time you kind of get this execution this is a this is morning. This is a school. This is sort of weighed communist. Brussel so you have this kind of Seems to be surrealistic in very kind of a bizarre and strange but at the same time no matter how strangers. It's also very familiar film. It's interesting you bring Takhar. Actually because I'm working on one of my many book projects on a book of Erotic Stories and marks read one of them that are inspired by not based on both the work of Android car and Borussia cold chain group beasts. Because I see so many connections between borough encarta especially their obsession with animals and we would the flies in this but the obsession of animals to sack Schwab. So there's probably a very neat erotic book per see only one combined so there is definitely the sense of magical realism in Goto. The in a lot of Barack checks films and you can see how car was obviously influenced by that. She was obviously influenced by check. Cinema is wow and I grew up reading Carter and came to the film's later on so it's amazing. How many connections are them? Find an Hartland. Look at things to think. She was all she'd obviously seeing this. She was obviously inspired by that. Neil Jordan is well he needs car is one of the film adaptations evanger. Cars were company. Wolves one of his favorite films and I find this late nineties interview with him. I think he might have been in film. Comment comment talks about some of his guilty pleasures. I fucking hate that phrase but one of his favorite films was `blanche and it just makes so much sense when you watch something like the company of walls how much influence filmmakers barrage check and even things like the the Saragossa manuscript you know the the the these people they wouldn't take in gothic horror from something really obvious that would go into these Eastern European more Surreal and pinnacle. They're all the lights. Come on and you're just like wow. I saw fucking connected in the case of Angela Carter. I mean she. She wrote an while nine that she she regularly went to present the national film. And so she she. She was a voracious Semifinal fell adaptation of the mudgee toy shop. She made direct till the following a wake of wonders and I know that the the reference for the structure of the company of Wolves adaptation was the Siragusa My. He doesn't work as well. In in the way that the Saragossa manuscript twix which is amazing But but but the idea of actually having stories within stories within stories clearly comes from that and I think that I don't I does not question that the based obviously has a a strong parallel with many theon Jason Particularly the film the company will Think he's guilty pleasure. If I'm not mistaken I think he was La Montage really guilty. Nothing really guilty about blown about Brown. She's fouts WHO's overseeing big. Well I'm sure he he certainly has. I think.

"I love the use of language in film but I think the fact that language in clever language and clever dialogue. We lost so much because of that. You know the expressive. It suddenly gets seen as being too expensive or too exaggerated or too strange became seen as a bad thing and it will have to be explained. These very instinctive visual thing that maybe it's not really but we can respond to that in a way. 'cause this motion based and so looking at film that Goto also very emotion basis so many emotions in the film. They'd like you said this softness that SIS sensitive romance but it's very very doomed romances. Very sad there's a lot of physical comedy and so you could watch that film with absolutely any dialogue no subtitles or anything and still understand it on some level. I think which she couldn't do with the film that was people sat in a room talking about their lives. Aegis couldn't do that one of the advantages I had an. It wasn't advantage like twenty twenty five years ago seeing films like chef ski films. Old Gammons films because Because I didn't know he went subtitled Polish. Russians have caused your your appreciation of those films is purely Like sensual it's looking at buddies in space you'll looking you'll listening to the music The voices the intonations of coast. You're making inferences constantly about going. What the Hell's going on in this state based on whether people screaming Whether they've got close on the read them off with something on us. I think that that that was really helpful. In terms of appreciation both filmmakers I think conversely I think a lot of the reasons why particularly show have ski was very unpopular until relatively recently imposed on. This could people. Oh that guy looks terrible. Oh you're listening to the film you're listening to the film of looking at it and I think that that really am paradoxically. The physicality of bikes on. I think that they They have many similar things in terms of the context in which they were the way that they worked on the fringes or across genres. But they were very different. People in Characters Schweppes kimber uptake. But the one sandwich I think the most important thing is they really have a sense of kind of physical embodiment of the fact that intellectually I think in in in the in the West If you all to intellectualize as you talk about Language as a system as opposed to the spoken word on. I think the combination of various cultural traditions and not just Poland East when you combine that with a lot of ideas in the Soviet Union in the twin. Taste the idea of emphasis. Constantly on the spokane would sit so the idea of gesture you know. Howie say the reason that was so much kind of emphasis on this is because it talking about language is a social phenomenon. Know something which it would you be advising people. How do they give speeches? How do they motivate work? Is You know why he does. This person Have this factual who what's what's what. Why could you with the situation with someone? Who's a great speaker reading? The same tax is a bad speaker reading the saint taxed and the good speaker that makes a huge impression but the bad speaker who said exactly the same content. The same words says very quickly and unconvincingly. So I think there's this whole emphasis constantly on the end of the embodiment to the story. Howard you visualize how physically states and you know the how those bodies actually Relate to the story itself. Are they physically interesting? Not just beautiful aging in a particularly interesting in this quite Noli Freakish looking people in Garter and untold floors the talked about how you could watch goto without any sort of sound or dialogue and so much of this movie is just about looks and I think it was very telling that grows. Oh was a thief because he stole binoculars and that we have these scenes and they towers especially glossy and go no. Yeah that's the thing all the g's are thing where they are in the tower and it seems like each window. They look out of is completely different. One seems to show them the ocean. One shows them the mountains. One shows them the forest and it just depends on which way they look. We'll show them these completely different scenes which is absolutely unrealistic. But I love that. That's the way that this movie works and that it is the moment when Goto later on in the film gives Grosso the binoculars again. That that kind of leads to his parliament when he actually ends up murdering Goto and tries to take over the whole Shebang and make Glossy has his wife now. It's interesting in terms of the the way in which those three objects those three roles in the way that the governor gives him the job of looking after the cleaning the shoes looking after the dogs analysis of flying kinda how all of their objects. And there's there's jobs Play a role in the kind of the the storytelling process. I think also this wave of cutting these ninety degree angles it. It allows you to very to create this discharge affi of the island. It's not there's no continuity problems because if he if you're only if restricting yourself to this kind of Flats on Luke. And then then you'll progressing you're cutting to an adjacent shots ee. Could actually create this without painting yourself into a corner. Aditorial than underplays can have as many beaches UNDIS- quarries as once. It's kind of like chess in a way the position of the monarchy in this thing that you the powerful mom has possession of the binoculars is really fascinating as well because he can see everything and it's like the binoculars of forbidden that scene before he kills. Imerese like look through the documents and the and the in these markets trick like somehow unoccupied of this forbidden thing. The only certain people are privileged to and I really love those the all details at Tattoo so much about the power structure on Goto and he was privileged to do what like mark said the the level people upon high is while people alot lower time the way use physical space just to tell us about how the society's ordered but the banana cutest thing we process as me because you know all the only binoculars on the island like why are they so you know why why are they so dangerous why they so important and it's incredible then not you said he then uses. La To show US parts of the island is wow so everything has a function. It goes back to what we were saying. Mark the beginning about being off but not this kind of intellectual detached. All everything is very practical. Everything is pure are on one. Nobody also very practical. Everything has a very very dined with practical meaning which I love because often when you see some filmmakers you going for the big intellectual statement they will put objects in his motifs which have fucking pointless waste is just smoke and mirrors. It's just absolutely pointless but in goto everything. She has a very practical meaning of being there. And so like Daniel sat on any that. Will you can understand that you can understand. The binoculars are important. You know and they have this particular meaning and I just absolutely love that par right because it feels very grinded in that way very very dying to with the release of chicks legacy in many ways because I know it gets the headlines. The talented guy ended up making South Pole. Scientists baked but I think the the the actual the real legacy is that he gave a generation of people particularly in England and also fronts Of Artists of the possibilities. Anglo you can use film in a in a narrative fashion and certainly the guards was the key film in that respect intensive you had Raymond Dogma who wrote an excellent very long article full fell comment in nineteen seventy six cold abrupt chicken. The cartoon release on switch we included the camera obscure book and at the time rate with teaching. He was a teacher by Saint Martin's College of Arts and the Royal College of Art. So of course he was screening. This poddar showing films to students of painting students at photography's not necessarily film students and you had the quite this. The Royal College of odds you had craigie hosts failed. The photographer I mentioned have cold. John Gato who liked the film so much. She changed his name. And you had J. claim of Skate Who became an as a fantastic poster designer? Who COMMISSIONED TODAY PISCES? Donnelly story assembles? Ought to be a garden Kristalina Mike. So all of those students were kind of exposed to Goto and unranked Particularly framing of any sort of what? We're object really shining as you can. Actually use film is a meaningful. Otherwise if you're a painter you can make those paintings move the photographer well film. It's made up at twenty four frames his second book. What is the relationship between those frames? If you're a sculptor I mean. Can you give a story to you know this is? This is a conceptual alternates very kind of rudimentary foam. There's a surrealist novel By Raymond Roussel and the basic plot. Is someone going to a country estate? Where the kind of given a tool of these increasingly surrealistic in bizarre contraptions but with an explanation as to the workings so in a fight. This is like installation work. This conceptual odds but it's done in an entertaining bizarre fashion any drawer parallel between. That's kind of what Barack tricks dating with guards. In the way that you'll be given a guide tool to this kind of islands which is battling under no North Korea. It could be a bit like Australia in the Nineteenth Century. Eric could be a goal at these things. Giving a toe. And you're given all these objects have a story. The flight catches that because of this plague of flies this bizarre Guillotine type execution device something about the the penal system and on this island and also the found that the way that the coffins are kind of shut down as if to say you know all of this is kind of a vote on so this possibility of giving artists People not necessarily working in film but working in other mediums. A way of telling stories use in that particular area. I think something which was really important in that respect yet. I don't know what it was about this time but as I was watching this I kept thinking of one hundred years of solitude by WHO's at Marquez. And just how that isolation creates this whole different society and that was coming out in nineteen sixty seven. So it's like something about something in the air was just like okay. Let's talk about these isolated communities and how things can go wrong with them. And you know you're talking about it could be this country could be that country but it's like those those things were being explored and and I do have to apologize. I said at the beginning of this Polish month and Daniel was Gracious enough to point out that Barack check may be a Polish filmmaker but this is a French film and that he had been in France since nineteen fifty eight. So this isn't technically a Polish film. So we'll make lump it in with the nineteen sixty nine series if that counts. This is nothing when film critics and film historian should not be too Anal frankly because you having here is a film which is conceived in Poland five pole who has enjoyed the Polish experience and yet he makes the film in France the felt mistime Bandon Poland. Franco's Spain which of course While it was the whole situation Poland Bonfeld they bolt the film and didn't distributes very accelerating salad. They did this with blonde as well. And so you have. How do you deal with these filmmakers? Settling something? I noticed in the nineties. You had these people primarily rough in Joe F skate basically to Polish French film histories and two French full Polish from histories. And that isn't helped by people like Zanussi the Polish from by Saint. Well they were really French. They were really French. So you have all these questions about what is the nationality of the film is the national? Potent is country which it's made as the credit is. The director is important. I mean I've always sought to Is Polish emigres. They have people who lived in work. Too broad I mean just like Joseph Conrad till now all of these. The film Gaucho is shot. Hotly in the ruins of Curious Laboratory on the outskirts of France and of course Marc Polish but she made these discoveries in front some nice show up on a lot of people think that trump in America area French..

"Honest skate terrific fashion. But we using the foyer. The foyer had stained glass windows. Which an steps in this kind of scale which would clearly is inspired or drawing or associating was the judge and so you had this strange mixture where we're in a communist country with communist architecture but sank time it looks like a a religious On so I think that birth That the way that yes. This isn't a religious community. Take in the normal sense. But you have this. You still have funerals. You have these weird ritual so this is kind of executions and then you have this kind of military leader. It's dragging rundown the way that people are not clean shaven. Everything's a bit taxi Nabet Wall. You're not show when it happened. Is What time are we in borough shake Mexico play that it distorted the presence? So you know it's I think it's an incredible scene. And also you didn't see any establishing shelves does know the establishing shots there isn't blanche when the title sequence you got the castle and that's kind of cope with the dovan Blaha south but in the case of Gartner does not WANNA stab We do not see the exterior of the building. I think it's really interesting from enhancing point to view the father. Broth check like a lot of chat filmmakers which which counts covert Oval Office. It's like we don't need the establishments. This isn't Hollywood movie. We don't establishing shows and then we can create a space using these different locations and it can we. It doesn't have to necessarily be space. Which makes sense Not something which you very much failing over at the end of the film the way that when he's dragging a pays to be the lifeless body of of of Glossy. Ah through an endless procession of kind of trapdoors of this used to get what? How big is this kind of full? How many does have any realize it doesn't matter. That's part of the fun of the film that you sign with the Jackal Film. Yea EE. You kind of crate Dungeon of staz tunnels and shades and use editing to kind of create. This kind of nonsensical mass. On the you know because you don't know what castle looks like from the Outside. Your brain is constantly adjusting. And whatever your brain is far more impressive. Probably what you could do with a muddle. Sean Tower. He's Isis. Cgi effects reminds me those people who desperately try and work out the overlook hotel in shining. You know they're like it doesn't make sense and it's the same thing with the shine in you out of this hotel that we get to see what it looks like from yard so on the inside you'll just in this whole labyrinth which is part of the fact you get lost in it but you have these people that are just so hung up on logic in things. Having to make sense it drives them crazy and I love. I just let it go. Just the whole idea. Is I think with this film you put into this space but instinctively you start to understand where you're gone you don't need to die you said you don't need to have the establish now. If it was a Hollywood film you would get in an alarm far far away. One Thousand Nine Hundred Eighty S. You get this whole thing and then you get like shorts of the island and you really don't need because it's such a like I said the tactile film and a film that's very sensual. You feed it. You don't need to to know any of those other things you need to know the understand this world perfectly from not very I seen in you know the just the school ring looking at this picture talking about FIS. It's so as to the genius but if you imagine not in a pitch meeting like for more conventional what happens while you know they talk about you know it would seem absolutely nonsensical to you know if you start to try and put in any logical space. I think that's one of the. I wouldn't say problems but it's it's it's a problem broke jihad because I've got the script for `Blanche of the film. He made afterwards. This of course you can read through the script and The film follows described pretty perfectly. But there's nothing there's nothing in the script to give the suggestion of how he's GonNa construct especially there's nothing to suggest you know the To these close ups and things like that on the the way. Y- frames in owns in on details. So I think that yeah I mean that is A. It's an issue which I think would would be problems. Abrupt check later on in his career when some of his scripts were either. Give them a little scrutiny. All the people giving the money just didn't know what he did. If you look at one of the Iliad shorts which I think is one of the one of the best ones. It's called Rosalie on. It's it's incredible and I think that that's a really good show. Film to kind of get to grips with how Tell stories and uses objects tell stories because it's based on a mopus own story about A housemaid which the master of the house gets pregnant and she gives birth to two children secretly panics and then smothers them. Embarrassed amounts tied and a town absolutely horrific horrific but what disprove presents the film's confessional. And so you have this this panel background with with Libya staring directly into the camera many way she's composed the same way. Goto and she tells the story and then basically rough cuts to objects which kind of lay down is pieces of evidence. And of course you are being presented with these objects but because of the narrative you were imagining how those objects fixture in the story which is happening offscreen so when you see a spade all you see. The film is a spade with some soil on in a kind of a label. Identifying is evidence but of course when she's telling this story about bearing the children of Koshi you see in your hands. The oldest drama happening screen. So so he's able to basically tell stories through objects and I think that's very much the case with the the school at the beginning because you have all this exposition which cutting genes and then you see this kind of cabinets of curiosities will these objects inside. But of course the context the older ex possession influences changes the way you think about those objects show older. These objects have great symbolic significance on. It's not it's not that kind of like symbols for something abstracts concrete in what they symbolize. If you see like an in the Russell If you see a bundle it's obviously the children's side it's like a symbol in a in a multiple kind of fundamental way. Nothing fancy we were talking a little bit about the religious symbolism and just that everything is an ascension. We have so many things that are up high in this and I don't know if that's because of what happened in eighteen eighty seven in that we have to take to heights but just that even when we're introduced to a Grosso and the other criminal that he's got to fight that there's this ascension up this elevator and everything seems to be taking place upstairs or in elevators up elevators and even when it comes to the area where they have to fight at. There's also a stairway there so that we've got go above everybody else so that he and glossy have to look down at the rest of. Adnan seems like all the nobles player and all the riffraff is down on the floor. And we're talking about the humor. I mean the whole thing of the fights that they have it is it. Looks like something that Charlie Chaplin would do? You know the very large man who of course kin kick Charlie Chaplin's ass but we get some good Bops at the head going on with this. I'm not sure what the rules of this game are. As far as why one person's head is covered and the other one's given a stick but it works out for me watching it. Well my interpretation was the guy because he kills. He gets a bag over his head. But because because Stole a pair of Binoculars. He got steak and IT MAY BE A. I don't know I'm just guessing but leveling out the odds just to make it more entertaining because I guess it's more about entertainment than the law which I guess is another way which the film resonates with the climate. We're in right now. Particularly in the states you know never mind. Justice exceed entertaining on. With where the ratings good you know as number one of facebook and the I just found out I'm number one on facebook. I thought those very nice for a long time when asked okay. What's your influence is. It was very clear that was not somebody. He was not to send any any file a he wasn't like a yet when he got his camera. He wasn't making mosh is to to hitchcock. Oh something like that he he. He is interested in the the camera at South so he usually when he got asked. Who your favorite filmmakers? I mean he would Si- Chuckling the cates. Eisenstein Vittori to seek up on me and Emil Coal Arena on for a long time. I thought well these kind of almost kind of get out of jail type bounces. I mean who doesn't like Chaplin who doesn't like Kate's in. But when you think about it all of these Mike is with the exception of Eisenstein an definitely disick Olsen of filmmakers. I mean is assigned to close. Hof In half. But these are all silent filmmakers and. I think he's a really important by looking at his films web by. I don't want to sound like pizza greenaway. Who Wasn't incidentally of that generation of people who were very influenced by Baroque Jake? Schultz in particular. But the basic idea which greenaway goes on. And on about you. Can you can see very much in borough is just the greenway. Articulates a Whereas I think check policy tend to practice much more effectively and that is the failing in many ways. Something in cinema dined with the introduction of sound in nineteen twenty seven. You know soon as we came to a technological point Webuye we could just kind of fell to the whole visual language which encompassed unto mine encompassed music. All of that was lost chocolate in Keeton a the double pentacle at that period in many ways. I think you have this forty years later. So in nineteen sixty seven nine hundred sixty aids you have three films which I think equally significant other completely different in many ways but you have two thousand one space odyssey. The color of pomegranates anew have Allen of love and he has three filmmakers effectively making silent films on what they're doing is what Eisenstein said we should do with Alexandra from put off Cain with his statement on sound in Nineteen. Twenty eight said. We have to be careful not to film theater. What we have to do is think of an association between the Soundtrack and the image with the same innovation and imagination as we have with montage films of the nineteen twenties. So you have people like a curate making two thousand one which is even got type codes when you think about this Hotlanta dialogue but music dictates much of the film also as a counterpoint. You having a similar thing with product Jonah for the color of pomegranates. That simplification returned to pantomime doing away with a narrative in the conventional sense. And you had the same Goto. The idea of. Let's let's go back to the silent era but give it up twist. Let's go back to the simplicity of communicating a world anonymous fifth failing. But let's not be lazy left's not in dialogue all explaining. Let's let's Shoaib's and I think it it really you end up with this this axing which is no. It's not it's not realistic. It's not like kind of light stylized punchline but he's very very expressive and you have that I think he's very clear in the same when Goto Glossy Goto the bauge and the the plane peekaboo. I mean it's ridiculous but it really does. Underline the town of failing which to his. After a sweet you'll say they sought Because I just wrote an essay on that most important thing is to love this very thing with Schreier skis wound. I'm not saying that. That statistically or tone the they made the same films but I wrote about how in silent film body language and expression and what we'd see is managed dramatic overacting. Now everything's exaggerated was pretty much the entire language of cinema and when sign comes along it becomes the intellectual property people start to think we can raise the bar and we can put cinema on a par with theater which is considered the most serious for move the more intellectual more Polish wa form of entertainment and when that comes along things is strictly physical all tactile or purely visual. They somehow become lesser in that. Because they don't have this so as you ask. It's like the incredibly over the top medal. Drama the expressive acting the fact that things on told in woods or logical words. I told in screams and crying in just this very very over the top way that some high when we get that sign shift became something that is considered low. Bri All we have to be very intellectual out sort of about the script. It's all about the dialogue. It's all about this narrative meaning and I love sending the Sign Films. Obsolete up screwball comedies for example of pre code film so. I love the use of language in film but I think the fact that language in clever language and clever dialogue. We lost so much because of that. You.

"By but off chick when you don't know if it's the funniest film you've ever seen the most horrific film if ever seen I think they're all continuities. Can we talk about the Goto said he's weirdly dark but it is also. I think that's one of the things I love about Barack check. I always get the sense. Sometimes that he's sticking the finger up these very ball joie pretentious so of ideas and you find this humor in that and naccache humor and as a low of in Goto said. It's like a dark film. There's also some really funny parts to it because of the absurdity and it's also very sensual is where you get the little peekaboo looking in on women in that bottoms and stuff and it's all a bit cheeky so it never gets too dark to be this thesis on you know. Very dark. We were talking about the faithful smoothies favor recently. Which is Great? But it's just very dark very stood and within something like go to. I think that's why my memory of it was. It was far more whimsical. That was the emotion I took away from it and then watching it but this time I thought I see this really dark things in this. That would just Sunday night. More is the current climate. It's difficult to describe and card tries the turnover of Goto. I'm so me personally. I'm not sure if it's whimsical. But at the same time it does have this kind of Fantastic fanciful atmosphere into an intensive. The way it's kind of presenting this world. But it's a very melancholic. Fill that was my take much. When did that box that come out a few years ago? That was the emotion I remembered from it and then watching backer thought this is not she that Williams although is still part. Severe funny is well. It's a strange one. It's like chefs all over the place and it's very sad like blanche while but I think that's what I love about those films one thing which doesn't really get pointed out about broke. Shaka's that we're gonNA talk about Wishes decide you know. I'm not saying erotic film like the whole business of Light you know yes. I'm these films some of these bumps sexually explicit the famous ones but the other ones on but if there is one shred which you could try through all of his works with one or two notable exceptions is that he is a he is a comic film. Mica of the show films are engineered around getting some gang San not silent films. Which of course has a bearing on the town humor and lick of Goto site? I mean he is a comedy film based is it's a false Dutch Jackal it's Sadie and foss is a new genre. Saad Is kind of funny as well and its own horrific way and side. These are all but but in the case of life. Probably solent my favorite of the Uncle Angels Games and that. That's definitely not funny. It's a film which goes out of its way to say that it's not about the concentration camps about alot. There's nothing in the film to make the explicit. The fact that the fell of the beginning says this. This films should not be confused with anything that happened it clearly about that kind of the camp experience. There isn't much shaver in that situation. And Ghardaia is is you know. They're all funny moments temps with the characterization. I think the way in which like all of these were kind of old military-type paypal that kind of that. He casts two types of these people. Look like the characters they play any sort of extended These characteristics streep costume said all of these people who have lied co bold in these tiny kind of glossies like kind of professors. All the guy with the kind of the earpiece because his death acid humor thing could. It's it's It's it's almost pantomime. Like fighting over fly catching stuff all the stuff with the flies. Oh find really funny. Just the fact that somebody would be that in T- catching flies and it becomes. This re justice really absorb just find it. Funny I find Dr Jekyll. I mean Mean Sam Justin episode on Dr. Jekyll which hopefully is going to assume. I'm we were just laughing about you. Know laughing about the absurdity of the the situations I think that's one of his greatest strengths are thinking temps sexuality. Saberi innocent sense of sexual activity. That also funny. Some of the shots and Goto like the women in the Bravo inspired him binoculars. Were almost like those images. You got on the saucy postcards as the sense of innocence about them and even in his later stuff archer day even in stuff like the beast that it's not entirely serious. It's not like you said it's not a erotic in the sense that you know them. He's making a film to today people. It's just so part of this same thing which is humorous and is very warm and I think that's how he's an incredibly accessible filmmaker because of thought about the. You mentioned the Brussels. Say I mean this is something that he's always? It's always made me think. What exactly is what exactly are we looking at? I mean all women on the island. Guard's have nationalized supply can't because it doesn't feel like a private establishment fails states state run. Brussel which I always traded is like a combination of both perfect fantasy but also almost a satire of aspects of communist life. How could you take nationalizations? Makes IT POSSIBLE BIBLE? And so you actually have like you know when we nationalize women saying that of course statute will make opem. Eight eight does look incredible. That that that that kind of long shot when you've got just a line by Contraptions rounding the wool to go and I mean it does stick everything. Sing in that work there. There is this whole nostalgic element of check in which everything over kind of visual iconography seems to be drawn or ten to the kind of a the end of the nineteenth century. A so you have this discussion someplace. is the ultimate hipster director Gods what they meant was the fact that he was really into kind of vintage stuff. That's what it's sort of like his somebody who doesn't want anything must produce who wants vintage things so and who literally does direction himself by rating so a thrift store. So one. Who literally does his costumes by Taking Pete? Bullshit who's costing person to a flea markets and then just like a collage grabbing this nuts adapting. Things was obsession with lace in courses. Because I am a sucker for costumes especially period costumes. And obviously that's a scene that but so many fucking courses and lace especially in bothell seen are just absolutely level that staff and the way frames is while so it does become sensual neurotic in that way. I guess if you're like me new into that sort of thing it's like sensual in the chew meaning of the word whereby it's appealing to the senses. So it's just kind of like what's can peeping Tom Sculptor feely or whatever you know. They talk about this. It's like it's like everything. The idea that the the attention to the sounds the attention to the texture of surfaces Attention to to things like the color itself funding. That's something but she's wearing bulleting Goto Webuye. The FILM IS BLACK AND WHITE. Call up the way in which he uses. Cola. It's very different from say talk of All Lindsay Anderson. And if he just using said Cola is lenka punctuation underlining something by shifting to Close up of like glossy is blue shoes or the the makes the dog so the blood in the bucket any thinking. Well this is that that immediate shock cola. I it's something you you don't have time to think about because the shots assoc short so they work primarily on essential level. And you know just like almost like a sh-. William CASTLE EFFECT TO SLICE SLICE. Shot clock corridor with the is colour sequence. A non it's just like a device to Which Wicks on the census? I love the way that the storytelling is actually completed. Just the whole idea of the schoolroom that we have at the beginning and they have the whole thing. I love whenever we talk about perspectives. They've got that photo that that artwork that is three go to's that are all in one but he. The teacher is asking the different sides of the classroom. What they're looking at. And I like that. They see something that we don't at least at first and that when they are saying I seek to wine icy go to. I go to three and it's just like well. What are you talking about? And then finally he moves the Professor Moose. The picture around and we get to see that it one picture with three people in it and of course this being Easter. I'm thinking of of the The Trinity you know just like are these just the same person basically just three different aspects of leadership or the governance of the island. I just that whole idea of the classroom and all of the things that are in the classroom we keep about all of the objects and the wonderful image of the fly life cycle that is up on the board and that he's teaching children about flies and then it's also nice way to bring us into the story to give us whole idea of go to being an island that has been cut off since eighteen eighty seven and I have to. I was trying to find out. Was there some sort of significance to January twelfth 1887? Was that something special in history but I was unable to find out anything in particular where I was like okay. There was something that happened on. That date is genius. How are we gets 'cause he introduces us to completely fantasy world and Single seeing using the prop of the the three emperors governors the Goto guys. He at Aegis gives us all this exposition in a couple of minutes that we now suddenly and to stand how everything circle not Orland. It goes spots. Donya was saying about economy. It's it's genius when he cooks 'cause often when you're trying to defense and I've been trying to write a fantasy novel and his so difficult not to overload people we've exposition but at the same time you're trying to present something that's not like our world so it's like how do you do that and the way he does not. Visha Day. I'm drawing us in with the with the school children so that the school children tell us this history. You don't feel weighted down with all this kind of history of the eastern just done so quickly and so beautifully in a way that you engage with is wow you can't see the other go. Tos. Initially I just think it's just fucking amazing storyteller this so much in that same. You thank usually another filmmaker may just turn into like a credit role of the beginning of an context but the semi visual things which you make inferences farmers like the the take share with the kind of greasy hair and the stubble in the glasses. It's considering In that kind of eastern European kind of Polish pre will You know that that kind of period sort of like a pre wool of the early twentieth century of the late nineteenth century is he finished in European country is kind of like a more of a German country or is it. What is this not clear? But they're little things which suggest eight and then you look at the school children and they're all wearing the same militaristic costumes. typically start saying handgun kind of military dictatorship so also liked communist uniform aspect and this whole this trinity which of course does have this religious connotations but then the aspect is also in Soviet life. You know the colts have personality of Stalin. The way that basically you have a an ideology which has no space for religious thoughts at the same time you know the kind of the tyrant exulted entreated exactly the same kind of structure is religion an inside so much like a commentary on that aspect of kind of a communist. Oh particularly Stalinist life. The find that Last year I was in on menial a working on a an installation featuring John us out takes. I'm wearing this incredible cinema which was made in the seventy s in this kind of brutally..

"He did another film in Tek and in sixty seven which was a short documentary with a kind of a CO in black and white direct sound on the has this kind of counterpart film which is in Cola with a recorded sound with music and until the two films completely opposite spoke because that made in counterpoint to one another they full Maho on. It's like applying the adept in awe in painting. A painting into hoes with the relationship apply not to cinema so you can easily imagine that. Perhaps perhaps these days you'd see in a in a in a gallery would lie to screens all opposing each other. But I think in the way in which he conceived these films. There's no sort of like Price of admission. Let's say you have to bring a master's degree in all Before you can appreciate you can appreciate a Lotta these short films. It's Kinda dinner. E either like funding automations on TV. Late nights all Yuko. You can contact the case at great length about this symbols and everything else. This which is perfectly fine to but at the end of the day. I think what's remarkable out? Breath shakes ailey films. They showed films is that they were combined levels. You could write a whole book on one of the show. Oh you could Share them to Tined that was the great thing about having. The box sat with everything in order when I got it. That's why did I just started at the beginning. My way through and it really helps you understand how he progresses and like you said how he repeats things they are on these experiments so you can see how he's developing testing and so. I think the box says just one of the most amazing things I think I've ever written about. I got to review. I didn't get the actual box that 'cause I couldn't afford it the time and then sold out and was really gutted about you often. Don't get the in home video box that success whole idea that it presents a vision is incredible. Work down new because it's so valuable. I think you can just sit and go from the beginning to the end of it. It have to credit Michael Brokers I was the CO producer on this there. Jiang's line so I was the head of restoration at Arrow. Who'S ACTUALLY UNDA? Francesca's Who the project because originally at actually how the book set started is is not a Mike how Grosso progresses coach of love because originally Abundance which dead and then at the end of the interview. I asked him about barrage it because I knew he did. Mention broke chicken. An interview took that footage to Orissa Michael Broken James White. When they were at the bay a finite they'd already planned they wanted to to to release a a active short films by Because they worked together on. These young trying Myers sandwiches fantastic and then the brothers quay but it's always been complicated with the rights to those early films on top of that breath shakes reputation by Sun lights films particularly that time and I think the guy changed. Focus by Michael James Antero so all the bits came together and then said well. Actually we want to relaunch. Aw Arrow Academy lying to to kind of keep up with the criterion must've sentiment so I think they were looking for a project which was Left failed something which instead of saying this is a classic film. It's let's treat this as a classic fell It was it was a bold move to tighten these titles and Putin the Academy Ryan trump in the video range because you can imagine the based on a moral tales in the media reg. Let's Iran to say that it's the academy is is is like a statement so it was all it'll it'll work towns and giving them support the cake style didn't they the interview for the kickstarter campaign with it was actually the end of the intuited. Time on it's actually asked him Would it be possible to use this as part of the campaign because there was a big Colt case web? But off check with reclaiming the rights to his films in particular `blanche so by the end of his life he'd actually got the rights to the short films about nine show films two features aside from Mr Mrs Cabal in `Blanche but he didn't have any materials and By that time eight copies from which you could release on video on the copies kind of in the UK Worl- falling apart. So I just decided that that Arrow Were making a name for themselves by making. You must've Of felt particularly films which Let's say Would not necessarily famous cult films and so the the the agreement was between look about off check and an Arab to to restore lunch. Mr Kabala nine shots and then then they had the idea well. Let's let's do the other three features which belong to August films which he's got talent of loath aren't Arnold titles on the based inside that town got box arrived on. It was a big risk Farah because Meat Broth. Jake had an unproven reputation. What people buy these releases I mean? Obviously they would bind the based model tiles but what they buy daily founds. I was very keen on. It was almost to a condition that the emphasis should be on the earlier films. Particularly go to also `blanche in the SCHOLTZ Because of films to recline rediscover our went along with that and then when we we did the retrospective we focused on Goto. That was I because I was saving up to get it and I couldn't believe are quickly so dial two weeks and I was just site were because I mean the campaign was really good. Obviously a lot of people will buy like blind buying it but when it was a nine so I was just start. I can't believe they're doing this then. I thought I'll have a few weeks to you know. Get the money together. And they just way which is a great thing I guess because then it gave our confidence to take more risks. With other things I agree. I think it's I'm extremely grateful Fool and targeting to to allow Allow us to actually use that. Fragment as part of the campaign because it kind of established a narrative of time Terry Gilliam's endorsements of broth check which was really important because it helps with the media aspect to the campaign and that's something which combine not. Let me know more. People know about mullet can contribute. I think he did. I don't know how Terry Gilliam feels about this but it did it. Did KIND OF ESTABLISHES STORY. Webuye everything which terrier named ops at the Monte automations came from abroad check which is which is not really true in the way that I think a lot of people. A lot of filmmakers suddenly realize the possibilities of making films using Co towns in a particular fashion Money too and then there were people like Larry Jordan in the US and Gilliam so it was But at the same time it it really helped campaign to actually have games name to have people framing the film in the context of Terry Gilliam's films and Monty Python and I think that those were really good associations to have and So yeah it was very lucky and had a lot of attention which came as a surprise to me at least and I don't think he was completely influenced by Boroff chat but you can see some influence. Nobody does give you coming into it blind. It keeps she that frame of reference. If you've grown up on MONTY PYTHON IF you've grown up on things at the time bandits you can then watch a film like go and you don't feel completely flailing around in the dark you can get into it on that level like you said they sort of crazy animation this strange or fancy vibe. You don't have to be approaching it from high like some filmmakers. You said you have to understand all this stuff about all and it can just feel to intimidate in and I think that kid him reference was you know the thing is so many people especially in the UK especially people like my age. She grew up on things. Like the time Bundy's was CETINJE interested in film like Goto. Can you imagine if they didn't have reference how Machu but you know some strange French Polish film? The it's on an art label. I don't think it would have the same resonant not not at all the one thing I regret is that the full is about six months. Maybe even early may be before the cameras scare about came out. There was a theatrical re release. Time bandits Family by coal to vote which which of course has a bearing on Goto because the the idea of the show film is that as the title implies it's it's based on a piece of music and the kind of the emotion of the music and the the length the music service kind of parameters with this little drama at is conceptual and it sounds terribly dry. But it's not. It's not dry a toll because the film is really about a recital of a piece of music in high society but brought checked. Tom and Jerry style uses the camera frame to focus onto to tools and he kinda frames to such Webuye Yukon. See The people who have like there will waist height like an atomic jerry cotton and that having a fine join this Eissa Larry's and at the same time it would have been perfect as a Scholtz guy with time pundits. Not I think. That's what's interesting about two acres because I think visually Gilliam is very very differ from Baroque. Shake because gallium is very very baroque. An awesome wells this wide angle lenses. Everything's in the Frayne. Absolutely everything in terms of the costumes this Morris Mole. You know everything's in the frame. And the camera movement whisper off. Chicken finds the opposite. The absolute opposites. He talked about the Senate interview around the time of the based on. He said that he looks through the. Viewfinder Eliminates and unethical. If you look at the film I mean we always talk about using long lenses to give a very flattened out damage but another consequence of using those kind of lung focal Lens. Is that this. If you'll filming for example table. If the white of the Lens you got the whole table bits of the room in the windows whereas using a long lens you just end up with a few things in the frame and then if you look through the frame and then decide. What is the absolute minimum? I need to make this function as a shot. And if anything which is kind of superfluous. He'll get rid of it so he's kind of like building composing shots almost like Eissa types. You know like when you go to the toilet in the reduced a modern woman to this almost like a diagram suggesting something almost like assemble and he does that with his graphics. In what is the absolute minimum? I need to make the shot work. What's the absolute minimum? I need to make this fenwick. So he is a master. I think it is best. He he is like super economic if he doesn't have to use colour he won't if he doesn't have to use it people he won't use people like in renaissance. Oh something like that and and that I think is very different from Gilliam. But at the same time it felt like time and they both have wolves by thorny unethically A one of you know that it's humid mentality. That's what they share the fact that that does fine artists who are working who just happened to be working in film. And they have a particular Humorous way of looking at the world in all of its Horace and. That's another thing. I think gallium member of Jake. Shah the thought that was funny while moment is horrific the next and they don't office sign posts as to the tunnel shifts and I mean that's particularly the case in something like Brazil when the end of Brazil gets quite frightening or in the case of Dutch Jackal..
"goto" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"Look to the projection booth. I'm your host Mike. White show. Any once again is miscast. Etlinger also back in the booth. After far too long as Mr Daniel Bird so pleasant to be Mike Polish month continues kind of with a look at Valerian Barack Checks Goto island of love released in that magical year of nineteen sixty nine. The film tells the tale of a thief on the island of Goto which is ruled over by Governor Goto the third after being pitted in armed combat and somehow surviving. He is put in charge of the governor's dogs boots and the killing of flies. Of course we'll be spoiling this film. So if you haven't seen Goto you have been warned so Daniel I have to ask. When was the first time you saw this film? And what did you think I saw it in London? The said the Institute of Contemporary Arts and Spring of Nineteen ninety-seven. I'd seen some object shots at my life whole films theater instead contract. This is ninety-one full and admonish SOC- blonde the made after Goto on video cassette which was released spy bfi. So I had huge expectation about. Won't Goto should be and yet lived up to them I saw take with a loved. The atmosphere the fell in the front that he was like a whole title world. And I think that's that's interested me about that particular film. It was like a rise ahead by David. Lynch the idea that the you all going into a world. And that's what kind of offers I also remember that screening because I was worried about missing the less bus Monday to stoke-on-trent on our watch the whole film worried about. I'm going to catch the bus. I'M GONNA catch the bus. The fells finished on Iran. I did catch the bus. But we're so tied fell asleep on the bus gusto digested so yet. My memory safeguards are absolutely mixed will be stuck in Chester at three o'clock in the morning trying to work out how to get back to stoke before nine o'clock of Navy nightside lend exactly so Yeah I thought that that was my commitments. Going all the way to London on the National Express Prince of Ghardaia in the small. Ics Cinema. Which if you don't know the small I see I mean I find as the biggest screen of course you saying it correctly by Saint Goto but me having learned basic in seventh grade. I keep thinking Goto now. Ten to twenty twenty print. Hello sober up. Jay would have approved cat. What was your first experience with this one? My first one is because of the camera. Scorer box sat down new produced. Obviously skinny sign bob now I only knew the ruder barrage check films before that box so it was a bit of an eye-opener to see the mall. I don't want to say more serious stuff. But their last sexual stuff and I really fat enough amp blanche's while I think because of Mike Daniels said it's this complete world but it's also quite whimsical and it's like a bit of a dark fairytale same blanche's well and he's got those same sort of deem romance themes in his latest staff. So I really found in neck with it. I didn't realize I dark. It was though in to what you need for this episode. Join this dynamic. The whole totalitarian government and post-disaster society just so many things so of time this time that I really picked her home but I just think it's a wonderful film. It's like a really tactile experience. You know because of all the little models and little things and yeah just really surprised me when I first saw and all of those shows and everything. That was the first time I'd seen any of those. So I quit seen immoral tales and the beast and the source of ones. Obviously but I never got Ryan to seeing well just because I really hard to see anyway so number. Really go ryan seeing the Eddie is stuff. This was actually the first time. Watch for me for this. Podcast I add gotten the BLU ray slash. Dvd in the mail a few years ago. Courtesy of Daniel because I donated to was it a kickstarter Indie Gogo starter. And I don't know if people know this but if you donate to a kickstarter that Daniel runs he will. Come on your podcast. So it's just taking a few years. That was one of the perks so I was just like okay. Yeah and come on the PODCAST and I agree. Love the world that this creates We've talked about Barack check before on the show We actually we talked about Lamarche a few years ago and the use of objects that is one thing that was comes up when it comes to check and just the idea of this world this island community of Goto that they have been cut off from the rest of the world sense. What eight hundred. Eighty seven and things are being used not necessarily in the way that they're supposed to be used the one thing that is so telling me as when we are first exposed to the music of the island and we have this guy who's got a singing saw and then we've got another guy. Who has this weird contraption that is kind of a stringed instrument and then we have these cello right behind them? And it's like what are you doing? Why aren't they using these fellows and this Chelsea just like backdrop to these guys who are just using these weird makeshift things and so much of this movie is just these objects being used in different ways or different types of objects the whole thing with the two feet that spin around that. Hold the boots you know. There's so many interesting objects the flycatcher itself. It's so great to look at and I love the look of this film especially the use or I should say the lack of shadows that everything is so flat that this looks like almost an animated film the way that it shot. That of course reflects throw chicks chrome because cozy as a painter and a sculptor in any way a apprentice. That's really how we can have made a name for himself. He got the National Brownies in Poland. Nineteen fifty-three the Stalin's death full cycle of socially stray Lisa Prince of Nova Huta which is an industrial town built in the suburbs of crack of and then after that he did film posters not very long about a couple of years and then he sort of made this transition into film now the scientists is that ever since he was a child he was Akiyama phone mica on sixteen millimeter but he used this opportunity together with another post office To really pull the language off the Po police posts which is quite remarkable because it kind of traits films but uses techniques. We associate with mud. Nah like collage will kind of expressionist have styles and things like that so suddenly these kind of Polish posters with moving these incredible soundtracks and It's it's interesting so that when Barack Jake's not to make more and more live action films fist in short films in the nineteen sixties finally with the feature like Gaucho. He kind of approaches the frame In a particularly graphic way the way in which he could pose a shots of costs relates very much to how he kind of Composed action full his animated films on us. Think that you know it's statuette where that comes from the it's very disorienting. Because he doesn't really everything is in kind of landscape in profile. He's constantly cutting in these ninety degree angles and Very simple but effective means of kind of cutting from shop to shop sane just through this kind of like these knots moves constantly. I grew up like a huge fan of Terry Gilliam especially Brazil and the time bandits and his. We then go back to barracks check and then just seeing how much he influenced. Gilliam system even though it's like really surreal and strange some of it. I had some sort of frame of reference for it growing up. Eleven Games films and it definitely has strange or fairy tale aspect to it like when we talked about case rookie hangman. You just get these strange fantasy societies with these. We'd inventions and you just look at amusing. How the hell does someone come with that? Just start if they're going to go back to what Daniel was saying about the Polish posters. Those posters are incredible. The Polish always have like an amazing potent even for some crappy so Hollywood film you see the Polish poster in your fucking how I all the effort some crap film. They are incredible. It's interesting point though like all installations especially these early films and I believe in our installations but in a very unpretentious way because if you say fell off since there is a certain baggage which comes where that which which is not not there at all and those films this is. Somebody works with the hands you know. I don't mean are are saying this very pretentious outrageous in a very pule thing. That's what I love about. His films is that they and we talked about this when we did show our ski. The other week is the lack of pretension. I think I love the most is not. I'm going to make this thing and be kind of show off via biter and make statement is just a map. You just feel this absolutely love that because of the D. town this gone into every will like that fly box is incredible with the little. Has He made a number of short films which it's useful either to watch short films fest before watching Guy Tile or watching the math words because I interviewed for the Books which which got mentioned a photographer. He was very influenced by brought check when he To Saint Martins in London her crazy hills failed and he put forward the idea. He said that a handful of short films on Goto Mr MRIs cabal which is anonymous partially animated feature may before Garter he he he said it constituted a coherent text by that he meant it was almost like sweets and that they will kind of culminates in Gaucho. And I think that's true because you you can see little tubes. That'll studies elected. They show films on the bill of like fit together an blossom into Goto. All of them I would. Cite like Gaucho was umbrella checks for a good ten years kind of the earliest synopsis. I've seen is written in Polish in nineteen fifty eight when he was still in Poland and That yet he made a show called the school scour which the older visual iconography of Goto is. They're not short film. It's about to a soldier which is going through some sort of military drill or training in an infinite variations constantly going to kill. The time doesn't exist. He's just kind of doing these kind of endless endless endless pointless absurd exercises and since you have that kind of out of time that repetition and no reelection and no real consequence that kind of absurdist. I'm getting is that in. In in the school visually it's takes place against a brick wall and that kind of dropped trembling. Brickwork is very prominent in the kind of Direction goto analyst this this contrast between this kind of military all mystic tights allied Mode of existence with kind of ineffective CEO. You know kind of sexual designer. Because in the case of the school the the soldier falls asleep in has a dream of a dancing goes likes. Am This a fly in that In that shoulder as well which kind of when he's trying to amy's gone the fly on the barrel so it's like everything was that it was on his hat and then then he made a fellow with the center. The Post Office Colts Donald A HOUSE. Which is a meditation on kind of movement itself. So the idea of a US a lot of that kind of a crime photography that at least studies a movement which we associate with the bridge but in this case Then what he did. And he's quite explicit about this than some of his notes. He wanted to expand on the ideas and techniques in the episodes in dom so one of them is renaissance Still Life table with some objects and the film begins with an explosion and then the objects reconstruct themselves at the famous in black and white except for one shot of color at the end with the explosion and of coasts. Because it ends with an explosion starts or an explosion is sort of loans itself to kind of a constant loop what you could easily imagine that you could project renaissance in kind of a loop in a gallery space on. He did another film in Tek and in sixty seven which was a short documentary with a kind of a CO in black and white direct sound on the has this kind of.

So pumpkins aids they seem to be something very popular that people enjoy eating as a byproduct of the Goto pumpkin beers at people. Correct fill which is about of the pumpkin seed. Feeds. So I like the these ones, according to them would toast over-roasted in our copper kettle roasted in Hof oven. So from what I understand. Oh, copper kettle. They have they have a two barrel and an eight barrel system from what I understand from speaking with everything they do is very small batch. And that's how they're able to do so many beers that have one beer that. That's smelled tasted like, lavender. That was I've never had a beer that that tastes like that. It was it was a sour. And a lot of the beers are kinda rough around the edges, but they make up for it by having this very balanced unusual ingredient profile. Yeah. I mean, very such as lavender such as cedar juniper in that respect. Yeah. Jones. Right. It feels like you're thinking like these tonics that some like sage his brewed up in the woods. This fear. Here. It seems like you've got a blend of of esters from the yeast, and and and the pumpkin seed are coming together, it's hard to tell one from the other. I'm guessing they're working together. Somehow, I don't get a lot of pumpkin. Which isn't it's not a bad thing. It's just it's not for anyone who's thinking. Oh, here we go. It's this has been a new version of pumpkin spice, whatever there's there's not I love roasted pumpkin seeds. Yeah. There's not a lot of like, oh, my God to sepulveda's concede beer or anything like that. It's just it's a nice kind of like the conversation. We had earlier about the just a nice balancing adjunct. I think it doesn't nice job of kind of mellowing some other things. But I don't get a lot of pumpkin. And I'm okay with that. I yeah. I mean, if you didn't tell me where pumpkin seed in here, I might think those were just esters from teeth. Yeah. But how? How? Well. Their case in this one too because they didn't have this on tap. They only had it in bottles. Okay. This is. I think I think I would be able to detect. No one told me thing that there's something in there. Something extra. Hunting and environmental arteries. I think I would figure that out, but I wouldn't be able to probably pull out pumpkins. This is full point six percent AB extremely drinkable. And I have to say the flava is so big for a beer of that level, which just goes to show that you don't have to have high alcohol have high flava. I don't I don't know what pumpkin sees rarely taste like, I don't really you. Don't have like, I don't know the MRs as a couple of weeks, if you know, I I've tasted good just too much work. Okay.
