Let's dive back into our conversation on healthcare tech with Bloomberg intelligence healthcare analyst Matt henriksen. You got intuitive surgical that's a firm that makes robotic assisted surgical products could see 20% growth this year topping estimates. So if you see 20% growth, how much of that is like surgeries from COVID that got delayed that's like playing ketchup versus new growth in surgeries kind of thing. I think we're past the backlog perspective. There was always that conversation going on about what's in the backlog. How is that going to accelerate growth? I think we're past that. I think now we're three years in. I think we're now looking back at what the opportunity is, what the run rate is. The bigger issue actually is staffing shortages. And so there's sometimes there's fewer doctors that are needed. The nursing staffing shortage was a big component. And so what you can do with robotics, potentially, is if you have robotic arms, you don't need nurse arms. You don't need extra an extra pair of surgeon arms to help out with the open surgery. And by doing that, that allows the surgeons who are in the hospital to be able to do more procedures over time, where you would have, let's say, four surgeons doing one procedure, you could have two

"A lot of the infrastructure tech spending is biased to large organizations that plus thousand employee type of company size, but when we look at app software, 38% of the budget is spent by SMB companies less than a thousand employees. The correlation is following very closely to some of the business indicators. We looked at we like to look at a lot of cross section of data, whether it's Census Bureau, by serve spend trend data, the NFIB survey data, and they started moving off peak levels in one Q 2022. That matched fairly close to peak revenue growth rates for the SMB applications software providers. If sales are slowing down your is that go right to the margin or things these companies can do reduce expenses in line. Yes. And I think this is why a lot of the investor community favors this sector even when there's the top line slowdown. When you're looking at a business profile, about 85% gross margin, they have 15% operating margin. And that leaves them with about 45% of sales. They're spending on sales and marketing. That can be tuned back. So that's a significant expenditure, which is quite controllable from their levers. All right, thanks a lot. We super appreciate it. It was something that neither was expected to hear. I have to be honest, niraj Patel, a Bloomberg intelligence senior analyst joining us. From an area in tech that's slowing down to one that looks like it's ramping up. You got intuitive surgical. That's a firm that makes robotic assisted surgical products because he 20% growth this year topping estimates for more what I welcome at Bloomberg intelligence healthcare analyst Matthew henriksen. So Matt, just in general, big sweeps, intuitive surgical, give me some examples, real-time life examples of how this stuff is used in real life. Yeah, sure. So wrote the robotic systems that intuitive makes the da Vinci system. It's used for many different indications for general surgery. There's herniate repair, there's like appendicitis. Yeah, exactly. Appendicitis, bariatric surgery. It's like a robot with lots of arms. Exactly. So what it does is that instead of having an open surgery, you have smaller incisions and use those robotic arms and the camera within the system to help with the surgery to either repair or to remove any harmful devices in there. This is a big company. It's got a $94 billion market cap. Yeah. All right. Just tell me about the company because I have no nothing about this. What's their business? Just give me the elevator pitch. Yeah, so it's basically it's their da Vinci robot system. And then she robots. And basically what it is, it's a monopoly of robotic system. So when you think about globally, there's 40 to 50 million surgeries on each year across the world. Less than half of those, 40%, let's say, or done minimally invasive. So smaller incision is not an open surgery. And then the rest of it that is done robotically. So you have maybe 5 or 6% that sun robotically. That's all davinci. There's no competitors out there. Really? Yeah. And so, and that's where the opportunity comes for them to really kind of get the foot in the door to try to really gain and market opportunity here.

"About? These are actually quite tricky to rank because number one is patently obvious. Are you with that? We could almost go in reverse order where it's like more interesting to go from one to 6. We usually go from 6 to one. But in this case, it's safe to say everybody agrees that scream three is the best screen. I'm just kidding. Grace looks at me. He was in that movie, that's why we watched it. He's really good in scream three. Some suggestion that he was going to come back in this one, but he did not, because they did not get to have Campbell to come back, unfortunately. Well, they implied that they're married, and scream 5, and I was like, oh, didn't did not catch that for a while. So scream one, the original scream. 1996. Number one, right? Yeah, absolutely. We're in agreement. So number two, I have three number two. Three, because I really enjoy Parker posey in that this is very good. I love all of the meta movie making henriksen playing the dirty old producer guy. I love the cotton weary intro than that with that kill when he's like in the limousine on the phone. Right. And that's the only scream with just one killer. But I find it still even if I take a couple of years if I'm watching screen, I'm like, who's the killer again? I kind of forget it's Roman. I really enjoy scream three. What do you think of scream three? Scream three is wearing the last for me. Oh my goodness. Do not like scream three. I realized when I was rewatching them, scream three, I find very unappealing. I don't like the whole Sydney's mother like ghost thing that they do in the beginning. I remember hating that first time watching it watching. I was like, I remember I hated this. That's right. What you were saying about forgetting its Roman, it's so unmemorable. I incredible counter Texas. I'm on crossfire. Ya burnt. I like to inform more than three. I do too. Yes. I have, after three, I have four two. I might go to as well, grace. Yeah, I'm with you. The Timothy Olyphant thing really works for me. It's important. Hard to believe. Yeah, well, I don't mean it in that way. I would say to say, I want to be violently murdered. You podcasting with your libido. I think it's really interesting. No, I mean, I'm a huge Timothy Olyphant event. I think he's really important. But in this case, I think it's important to be reminded as the franchise does in general that fanboys are fucking dangerous, you know? And psychotic and annoying. You can't be with them. And that in a lot of ways animates the entire franchise, and I agree with it.

I <Speech_Male> guess this is <Speech_Male> in technology <Speech_Male> when you look at technology. <Speech_Male> There's <Speech_Male> a lot of <Speech_Male> Related careers <Speech_Male> that aren't as technical <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> For instance like if you wanted <Speech_Male> to shift into <Speech_Male> you like <Speech_Male> being a scrum master.

"Global audience. So we try to be cognizant of that fact. So that's that's why we're going to try to have some things around the day to kind of help kick things off and get people to watch that content kind of have somewhat of a community event part of that. I mean back dude dom as a person. How do you find time to do all this. It's a good question you know. it's funny i i. I asked that question to a lot of other people too. I'm trying to think as i interview. People who are are really busy. Like for instance some of the the people who are speaking at our conference or some of our track chairs. They are amazing. People that get a lot done. An is a amaze so i guess i find a lot of people inspire me to do. A lot of things like Do some side projects in and be involved. I guess one of the big things. I i wanna do is to share a lot with the community because i do the agile online summit but amman i'm also involved in just a local community. Meet up here. So i live near princeton new jersey. And there's a princeton agility group that i'm part of organizer as part of that so those that's the thing i enjoy you know just kind of being curious and somalis always wanting to learn and that's kind of why i started doing some of these things so you know i like to you know as i do my work at work i like to think. Okay what can i do. How can we make this better. That's i guess that's probably is going through my mind. You know i'm doing something. How could we make it better. What's what's an improvement. So i think that's you know that's part of the agile mindset of thinking about how we can improve things. Yeah that's nice. I usually like to end my conversations with a question related to career advice for two segments of people one those who are considering a career in it now on one hand about the future what we can do it..

"Did you see any teams emerging over. The years are shift and thumbs of the priorities. Yeah i think it's interesting that you know like i said i've been doing this for five years and been in the agile. Space for is suppose probably over ten years but Just kind of seeing how there seems to be kinda shifts in waves of what we focus on. I think some of the times for instance like some of the like. The scaling frameworks seem like a lot of people are focusing on that a few years ago. But it's interesting. So there's a isaac garcia is one of our track chairs and he does He's actually part of something called coaching. Agile journey so he put some stuff out there but he reminded me and i think this is so good that he said you know tom. We have to be conscious that there's always new people coming into our agile space. You i shift might think. Oh we've got this mastered. We know all the stuff but but those people that are coming in new they need to learn but also to they might be bringing a different perspective of something that we haven't thought of so. I think that's important too. I think that's part of why we did like this shoe re concept we gotta make sure that we're always cognizant that there's you know those beginners in that we have to honor that journey because we're all on a journey but we need to kinda give back and to think about in the questions because i'm sure for you in myself. I'm not sure. If i would remember all the questions. I had early on in that. You know something that you know. We can kind of reflected. Okay how far have we come. what have we learned. And i think that's the thing where you know we need to be cognizant of that and to as we go through this pandemic where a lot of work shifting you know. Maybe there's some things we need to. We all need to be a be able to adapt to. Do you have any plans for cure. Anything on the content. Either over the years are across sessions on. Do help someone navigate and get to the right basis later. Not during the confidence. Yeah we we do have a couple things. I've been working on because i know you know. After five years we have quite a bit of content in. So that's what i've been trying to start working on some things to put together that as we of course my focus now is is the the event but to will will have some. We're going to be working on some things to kind of help curate..

"You do do the agile online and devops online long before the band makes when people started looking at online as a running. Yeah i think the big thing for me ship was at the point when i first started doing this. I wasn't able to go to a lot of the big conferences. And i was just like. Oh there's really some interesting people speaking at you know whatever the conference may be in. Like what if i interview those people and just share that with others. Would people be interested because at the end of the day. Shift the thing that drives me to do. A lot of this is just a curiosity. 'cause i wanna understand. How does how does that work or you know. For instance like. I talked about how we went through an agile. Transformation really twice at the first company that i used it and How you know some of those things it kind of like oh. I learned a lot but bet other people. No more you know. So it's it's always curious to see. Okay how would you. How would you handle this. So for instance shiva. I might ask you questions that i have. This team really struggling. I have a couple of people that just don't wanna embrace some of these practices. What what would you do you know. And i would ask you in and that's something to even. You might bring up something that i haven't thought of her or something you could share or somebody else might share and then somebody will think. Oh maybe maybe we can try that because like we were talking about before a lot of these things that we're doing our experiments were just trying different things and it might work in company. A company be so so. That's kind of how it got started. In why i started doing a lotta this. So how are you able to get diverse set of perspectives and put them all together. Yeah that is a good question. So i have to I have to share so. I've been doing agile online. This is going to be the fifth year But i think it was two years ago. So i've worked with a guy by the name of awkward. Workday astra toolbox podcast and he. He had a great idea. He said tom. I think you should have track chairs. And let them do some of the interviewing. And i think that's one of the things that's really helped broaden the different perspectives because you know if i interview you shift. I only have my lens of experience. With if i get you know. Three four or five other people to do interviews. You know i'm get their questions are going to be different than the one. Maybe i ask him. You ask So they might bring something to the table. That you're like yeah. I hadn't considered that. That's a that's a unique perspective So i think that's one of the things. So so vasco had that idea couple years ago and i think that's really helped broaden on the event and to bring a lot of different people involved. You probably know the agile. India countries savvy. Don't do program committee and that's kind of the model that has worked for us as well but also gets a lot of community involvement and Different people bring in different perspectives. So that'd be people who propose necessities also get that feedback. Yes yeah that's so important. They'll yeah the white this online format and most of recorded sessions right. Yeah a lot of them are recorded. We do some live as well. So we're kinda doing some experiments this year we actually We actually have were working with a company That kind of help design events and they the guy that runs it. He has a kind of a business partner who is a professor in game affiliation. So we're actually working on something this year where we're going to have They're gonna put together some kind of things that help game by what we're doing we're putting together for instance like have a participant guides..

But then to even i think to kind of An important aspect of setting expectations to say not that this will work. But here's a few things you know. Maybe we can try this and then to Remembering to kind of ask the team because a lot of times the people who work on a project they know how can best function so. Obviously you know it's good to ask them. I get their input as well. You mentioned this command and control earlier. and usually the analogy use. the army's. Yeah but then.

"With people. Because we're like. Oh why don't you get it. It's so while you know not. Everybody has the same experiences we do. So we have to be patient with them to. It's interesting when at least your friends or family circles called you. They think that you know everything. Take probably who doesn't seem that. How does this. Why and how do i connect something to something else and although yeah with so much of changing technology and so many basis. That are moving. How do you keep track of what's happening. And how do you put them together. Pick the ones that are relevant when you're designing solutions. Yeah yeah i think a big thing is just kind of having that experimental mindset of being able to to try out some things and see what works what doesn't work and it's funny. This is a long time ago when i first got into this agile space. There's a guy by the name of brandon. Carlson than i used to work a little bit with back in i used to live in the mid west so in iowa which is a state kind of the center part of the united states and he reminded me so he. He said tom. When i start with a team i get them to kind of get their ideas out on paper and pen because what we what we were talking about. Essentially is like you know a lot of companies will say. Oh we're going to give team ex- we're going to give them jira so now. they're agile. well no just because you have. Jared doesn't mean you're agile. So he he had said this. I think this is important when we think about how we work. Sometimes for instance like if we give team jira we're gonna get. The team will adapt to the way things work in jira. Or if you have another technology for instance like i'm a. I've done a lot of java development my career you know java developments a lot different than some of the civilised programming.

"I talked to a lot of people to a lot of agile coaches and there's a lot of things out there where people kind of misapply things or you know I saw something the other day. Somebody was talking about They had a team that had their. You know their fifteen minute stand up but they had a thirty minute meeting before that so to make the stand up go smoothly. You know so. It's like they're adding things to it. That really aren't there. But you know it's but i think a lot of it you'll out of the misconceptions come from just the transitions shift as you probably see with organizations as a transition to agile. It's it's not easy. It's hard and i think a lot of times. We carry some of our our baggage. If we're for instance like for an old project manager We might carry that baggage to being scrum master. We might fall back on those command and control like okay. I'm gonna tell this team what to do. They're not gonna so it's i think. That's where a lot of misconceptions and a lot of these ideas come from the other question. Was you mentioned that you also learn how to talk to the leaders The how do you develop that empathy as a dickey. Yeah yeah that's that's tough shift i. It's funny. I actually do a talk called. Humans are hard cozy a lot. And i talked about in that. Talk one of the big things. That was a light bulb. Moment for me so i wanna go back when i was a kid. Somebody said tom. You gotta read this book by dale carnegie how to win friends and influence people. Now i'll be honest as kid like that's stupid. I don't want her that. But as i actually read it but then i came back to it when i became a kind of a tech person. I remember talking to executive i was like. Oh yeah we got. I think i went to a conference or something. I learned about new technology. Like oh yeah. We got us. This new technologies can be great and they're just look at me like what who cares But but the next time. And i talk about this speech. What i learned is i needed to coming back to dale. Carnegie's book is talking their terms. So once i learned what the executive was looking for. They wanted to know. How does this value add to the Business because they need to know it's going to make us more money not. Oh here's tom. He's gonna spend a bunch of money on our some technology that we probably don't need so once. I started to learn how to talk in their terms. That's when things shifted for me. And i started like light bulb went off like. Oh yeah. that's right. I did read that before but it didn't sink in so kind of those things Shift where you you know. You might make a few mistakes and then realize okay. They want to see it from a different perspective. They're not a a program or they're not a techie. They don't care about you know whether you're using some new whizbang technology so you need to think about what they want. So how does that change when As a dickey. I'm just making probably some assumption here. Then you might have developed technology or basis of code that others.

"Stream get your tv together at direct tv dot com compatible device required. Content varies by package. All right we can make this fast. Just nfc south by in tampa. But i think there's a second playoff team in this division real and saints. Aren't you you. You caught the james. I see that look in your eye bill. That's janus. I i actually fleiss. What's interesting about the nfc south to me. Is i think you can make a case for each team right. Francesa was on this pod last week and made this whole saints case the saints over unders nine. And he's like that's ridiculous. They all must be at the super bowl last year. Their quarterback couldn't throw deep pass. So they're gonna have a quarterback that connections threw a deep pass like you can't tell me there in eight nineteen next year. That's crazy And it's sean payton the infrastructure. They have some blue chipper. So i get it like yeah. Could they go ten and seven. Would it be shocked. Atlanta goo fits that classic sleeper profile of terrible. You know fourth quarter luck last year. They had some injuries. They got a new coach Kyle pits all. Thanks so i could see that. And then carolina who is twelve to one that when that visually have the worst odds. But carolina's over i think is like seven after eight. They have good guys man like like they have a couple like studs and then if you think darnold he's better than bridgewater. They were in games for a while. The matt rule thing. I don't know we out of those three ten and seven. I'm just i'm presenting the cases mean it has like any of them. No i think the saints have the chance of making the playoffs. The parliament of saints is depth. Really i mean. They cannot lose anyone and they've already lost a people for the perception season. No michael thomas. As much as i love marquis calloway who alluded to That's very very thin. Group still Obviously very good offensive line and they'll have some other guide. The saint the rule at the saints. Is it some other dude. They've picked up the street. Who's got ten catches virgin guards and then on the other side about this this defense. I think we've been kind of taking for granted for a while. Is being really good over the last three or four years under dennis allen who still defensive coordinator but Henriksen is gone. They're hoping painting turner. They drafted can step marcus. Davenport looks fantastic. opposite cam jordan but david on your motto is a sneaky loss to suspension first few games of the season and then in the secondary. It's not a hundred percent clear to me who's playing cornerback. Opposite marshon lattimore again. Another loss ginormous jenkins tight jackrabbit. You i think officially changed his name. But in the books to jack rabbit. Jenkin notre cinco. This is what they had like. Yes all those years where we were like. Oh the saints. The cap is unreal. Put it on credit card. Well the bill came due and guys had to leave and you're still good team with a lot of really good players. Many mentioned rayo davis is amazing. But marcus williams is really good but when you start letting that depths walk suddenly you become you be. You're just becomes kind of fragile. So i think they have high upside especially winless anything like he did in the preseason. I just think that upside can get knocked down pretty quickly with injuries. Would you think. Danny so i i like the the most. I think it's the most logical and obvious so bill. You texted me this awhile ago. It's like there's always a weird team that makes playoff is is there. A weird is is our world where the panthers are the weird team that makes so that. That's why i brought it up. Because i think this could be the division that weird team. We're going to ruin three playoff teams west. Then the weird team has to be one of these. Nfc south teams the vikings. I guess it'd be weird. I think it'd be really really weird of to. Nfc teams made the playoffs. I be staggering bizarre to me. It's possible wash. we'd have dallas. And and i just don't think i don't think houses a playoff team. I don't see it but the giants at the eagles their out so we'd have to be dow's washington. I think it's more realistic. That it's one of these. Nfc south gains. But yeah the carolina thing. They were five eleven last year but it didn't didn't totally feel like a five eleven team to me. I felt like they were in games. They had some good showings against good teams They have a couple of really good players on both sides. And i do. I thought they were. Well coached the games. I watch things. Well coach i think like overachievers. Almost there it's most likely they're year away from being a competitor a contender. But i look at like their defense is very young and they've got some guys that could really make jump like brian. Burns was a favorite of mine coming out of the draft. He's looking really good so far he could have this he could. He could have a superstar season this season. When there's the support of the year kind of sleeper buzz with them And then like derrick brown. One of their top picks from last year. He's exciting player. I don't know there's just. They have a lot of young exciting players. Jeremy chan jc horn. Dante jackson if they if they can get it to come together. The defense could be to could take a jump. And i think that there's enough talent in his panthers offense especially that sam darnold can if even if he's just like neutral even if he's just average lee right there yet average that he is to good offense and so i don't believe it. I mean league. Average for sam darnold would be a mammoth fazakerley. He's been it's possible I love the schema. Loved the skill players. Do not love that offensive. Line in that removes consider for me other than like taylor. The entire left side line is an issue on the other side of the front seven. Actually we like Till snow their defensive coordinator. I think a really job but a lot of holes in that secondary. So it's it's they're interesting place because they're like a rebuilding team in many ways and they're very young But i think there is some pressure to compete now and also pressure. This is one of the teams. Where as you're watching the other quarterbacks tear it up in the preseason this the teams where the fan base does not feel great about that. And i think oh i dude yeah i mean imagine if you're authors fan i mean. Jc horn looks. He looked really good in the preseason when he did play play. He's super sticky super aggressive. Press man corner but lake. Justin feels was there. Mac does are there you know. So that's tough. And even how about this 'certain was there. They read to take it. The wrong guy right did took horn ahead of 'certain and everybody is like beck is an absolute all time you know could be a stud rookie right. Lacombe in for pros and all that stuff One thing with the nfc south. I forgot to mention they. Put the afc. The nfc says sure see get the jets and then you have all those nfc's.

"Okay. There's there's nothing here there's just like it's just dirt. It's dirt for ninety minutes. There's no there's no change of scenery. I think at one point for a single fight there in a wooded area for like ten minutes other than that. It's it's probably a single square mile in nevada or like bar sto california just dirt this. This whole thing is cheap as shit looking okay. But it's great it somehow great. This is super engaging nothing about this movie makes sense in terms of why it's so entertaining but the action moves along. Christofferson is is really good. Even though he's in his his post like late nineteen seventies people. Just stop giving a shit about him. So there was You could you could get yourself a discount. Christoffersen nineteen ninety-three and he's fantastic lance hundred. Always good as a villain here. He's he's great. And i think it's all the little touches that they even with henriksen the fact that he's got some weird like claw arm thing going on also. It's all stupid as fuck like i cannot emphasize enough. Just how silly it is. But that's why it's great. This is the joy of this journey to the cinema of our pune is that i now know that. In point someone made it will show action film in america in the desert starring lance and kris kristofferson mad lib cinema just nothing makes sense in atlanta. Henriksen is particularly fond this because he's really channeling his like pit and the pendulum. Stuart gordon like just insanely just like stern in the midst of film. That's not anywhere near a stern as he is at its. It's a kind of very fun. Set up his vampire. Clo- accuracy the cyborgs of future and use human blood to survive past their their original intended lifespan. So it's it yet. The story doesn't make any sense. If you try no get out it kind of falls apart real quick. I think it makes even less sense. If you watch the pune director's cut quote on all the best part. This is the greatest directors cut of all time. Okay there's nothing at all except for there's like a weird prologue like scrolling text and then anytime a character comes on screen. There's text underneath them. That's like oh yeah that's so and so they're the grandson of this person that so and so they're totally related to this person from the first cyborg so these movies are in the same universe. Just trust me prologue though is is just the on film prologue which i. It's not like it's set up like a fucking seen. How exactly did you to fill the energy. Because it's it's absolutely the energy of just like they wouldn't let me do whatever i wanted to do on a mad about it but also in the prologue Evident that maybe. They didn't let him do whatever he wants to because he wasn't entirely certain what he was going to do at that time they were like. We're not your market and also the the explanation is more or less everything in the prologue cannot be shot in a desert. Therefore you are not allowed to do this based on your current budget constraints as i understand the prolonged it is that the initial research from cyborg led to the construction of twenty cyborgs. Who had a power cell that lasted one year..

"In theaters and on demand tomorrow. Viggo Mortensen joins us now. Welcome. Thank you. Nice to hear your voice, and it's not really an autobiographical film. But I do understand that it comes from some of your own experiences. Can you tell me about that? Well, there are some things in this family story that are taken directly from my childhood and lessons, You know, memories. But also from the recent past, and that's the issue of dementia, which both my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, both sides. The family has been a lot of that. I'm familiar with it and Wanted to depict that respectfully and accurately, which is not always the case on movies. I started writing and after my mom's funeral, I just want to remember her. I want to keep Images of her my feelings about her A zoo. Much is anything alive and I ended up writing a fictional family story using some real elements, at least from my own subjective memories. And Yeah, that's how I ended up writing it in the process of writing and casting it and making the movie editing it and even talking now to you, I guess I'm keeping My feelings for my parents, especially my mother alive. So I guess I succeeded in that. Can you tell me more about the way you wanted to depict this family that is in the grips? Of dementia. And I say that because according sort of happens to the entire family doesn't and you say that you haven't seen that depicted all the time in a respectful way. What do you mean by that? What did you want to do? Or just completely accurate? I think some of these even good ones they are. You can't make up their minds. For one thing. Why we at the beginning of the disease, the middle stages and stages the kind of trying to throw everything. At the wall. But the main thing that I find Is that a lot of those depictions even the best ones are mostly showing someone who's confused. A lot of time on my experiences is that the people are confused are the observers Sometimes the caregivers? Not that person. That person really is gradually seeing and hearing and feeling these things. It's very real for them in the present, Regardless of our strange it may seem to you or inexplicable. So that's one thing I think we did get right, you know, By the way, it's written by how we use sound and image. And also fortunate because we have an incredible actor giving the performance of his lifetime. In my opinion, Lance Henriksen is the way he suddenly goes in and out of different mental states. The way reacts to people And the way he tackled head on without ever trying to You know, play to the audience gets very, really realistic portrayal of that disease and have a particular kind of person who is Was troubled even before the disease. You know, you are absolutely right. All of the acting in the film is strong, but Lance Hendrickson really, really steals the show. How did he prepare for that? And how did you help prepare him for that? We got to know each other really well, and we worked on the script a lot. And, you know, he asked me questions and about dimension. They talked about it and tried to help him is in many ways there could I wasn't intending to act in the movie it first. You know, I play as you know his son in the story. Andre. Those are the two main characters we see. You know, once we see most the time and it's just sort of battle Uh, ecological battle between them in a way this story. Um it's the tail end of a lifetime of conflict and spotty communication. And it's I guess I want to explore that as well. What are the limits of communication, especially when you're dealing with someone that doesn't seem to want to communicate with you? Or seems to see the world in a completely different way than you do? Well, here's another clip from the film. This is Lance Hendrickson. Working on a crossword puzzle. What's the slang word for overactive? It's five letters. Second one might be a wire. Mm. How many letters Love. Hyper. Mm hmm. I wanted to mention this scene because it's one of the rare times when Willis isn't yelling, and it is so painful to watch him throughout the course of this film in relentless conflict with his family. Sometimes, you know, as I watched it, I just wanted to run away from that conflict. Maybe that says something about my own personality, But I think that's probably something that you were trying to make the audience feel. Yeah, we were and I understand what you're saying. And I think that some younger reviewers and maybe audience members or people that have not had experience with taking care of an older person or difficult person. It's easy to say, Well, you know that person that I know at work or a friend. They're no longer my friend. I can talk to him anymore. I don't like what they're saying. I don't like the way they treat me. That's it. I'm done Separate. And some of those people might watch this morning. Oh, well, who wants to listen to that crap? I don't have to listen to that. I'm walking away. But in life that does happen, and sometimes it is your father or your mother. And you have to make a decision. I'm not telling anybody what to do. I'm just posing questions. I'm saying this is what's happening in this family, and it's probably happening. A lot of other families. How do you deal with it? If you want to walk away, you can. But he has to make their own decision. If you don't walk away, it is a minefield and it is difficult and it tries your patience. But In the end, it can be rewarding. There might be a glimpse. There's no guarantee, but there might be a glimmer of empathy. There we go, Mortensen, let's go through some of your credits on this film. You started it on screen. Obviously, you wrote it. You directed it and your directorial debut,.
