David Lynch Was an Unusual Choice to Direct the Original "Dune"
"David Lynch, unusual, choice to direct this movie, clearly he was into it four years. It took him to give birth to this. When they gave us when dio De Laurentiis offered this to him, he never read the books. Knew nothing about dune. And he'd only made two movies. I don't know if you're into David Lynch, but let's just read his list of accomplishments. It's interesting. If you go to his IMDb or look up his filmography. Really short in comparison to other directors or producers. He's only got a handful of movies to his credit. First one is the very, very weird, eraserhead, the star of which has a cameo in dune. Then the thing that really bursts him on the international scene amazing movie tough movie to watch with John heard of course is elephant man. And after he makes that black and white movie in the 80s, elephant man, he's offered this, so you're a Hollywood guy, not really an obvious choice, a razor head, elephant man, a Victorian real story, and then this so we'd pick no. Yeah, I don't know. I mean, a lot of it has to do with friendships and what's hot, right? So what probably happened was, you know, elephant man is considered to be a fantastic film. It's considered a classic now. A modern classic. I've never seen it all the way through, actually, because it used to come on TV all the time when I was a kid. I always found it a bit difficult to watch. It's like you said, it's tough. It's a tough, it's tough to watch. So I never sat down and watched it all the way through, even though I knew as a film student, this is one of the great films of all time. I should probably watch this at some point. I never got around to it. So yeah, it's hard for me to judge, but sometimes that just happens where somebody is kind of like the bell of the ball for a little while, right? They're America's sweetheart. And at this point, it must have been David Lynch and somebody's because apparently they were trying to get David Lynch for return of the Jedi. And I'm so happy that he got, you know, got distracted and made this instead because

"Seems to reliably pick the winners. And it all comes back to him being the man in Hollywood. He's Netflix's guy in Southern California. It's this tech company, but it's also this Hollywood company. And the reason I bring that up Brad is because I believe it wasn't in your second book, Amazon about Amazon, Amazon unbound. Jeff Bezos and the invention of a global empire, you talk about Amazon's moves to Hollywood. And Amazon's attempts to get into Hollywood. How has Netflix succeeded so well and where does Amazon stand right now? Yeah, I mean, look, Amazon has caught up in some respects. It's a different business. It's integrated into prime. They were earlier on the ad supported tier with their IMDb franchise. It's now called free TV, I think. But they've never managed. I still think to this day to replace the kind of taste making that Ted sarandos does. And they struggled, they replaced their Hollywood leadership, you know, wholesale, at least once, but even today, I mean, you look at the hits on Netflix and the cultural conversations they stir up. And maybe the only thing to compare to is HVO and Amazon, I don't think is really in the same conversation. So yeah, I think Amazon struggle I've reported in both my Amazon books at Amazon for years tried to buy Netflix and read never sell. And I think for a good reason, you know, Netflix is more indigenously Hollywood than Amazon ever has been or could be. Brad, I forgot, right? When streaming started, or I think about Netflix, it wasn't necessarily about creating your own content. It was just picking up other content from everywhere else, right? And just getting it out. I forget that. Right. And that was the road that led to original content because as they were licensing shows from the likes of Sony and MGM and Warner and the other studios. That became a pretty good revenue stream for the studios and the cost started to go up. And you only had to look at the licensing costs if you're at Netflix or Amazon Video on demand or early Prime Video to realize, hey, this is not a good business. This is unsupportable, but the way to make it wow, and by the way, all those studios might eventually go into business go into competition with us. Control their own customers so the way to guard against that is to start making your own TV shows and movies. Hey, 20 seconds, Brad, how involved do you think Hastings will continue to be as executive chair? You know, I think he's going to follow the Bezos playbook a little bit and let it let it run. He said he's going to focus on his philanthropy and other interests. I would expect he'll be an involved board member and gradually leave things to Ted and Greg Peters. All right, we're going to leave it on that note, Brad stone. Thank you so much. Have a great weekend. Brad is Bloomberg news senior executive editor of global technology. Check out his books. If you haven't read them, shame on you. The everything store and also Amazon unbound really following the trajectory of Amazon, but just some great insight on Netflix. Just looking

Chris Kohls and Sebastian Discuss Top Gun's Unwoke Success
"Before you very deviously got us massively sidetracked, Chris calls. Let's get back to the question that I want answered. Top Gun: Maverick, should we lay significant into its anti woke success? Or is it just some really powerful dude having fun? Yeah, it's not shocking. I mean, Bruckheimer produces it. Brooke heimer created the original Top Gun. He's a sort of known conservative in Hollywood. So was he involved in the sequel as well? I believe so I saw his name on the IMDb side. I don't know how involved he was. But yeah, he is the original creator of Top Gun. But yeah, I mean, like I said, run an inflection point. Any time you're at an inflection point, you're going to have people on both sides. So somebody like David zaslav, who's coming into Warner Brothers and who sees, okay, this is not working. Like, look, if maverick is one of the most popular films in the history of the world, and it's creating this point of difference where it's not woke and everything else is woke, you're definitely going to have people going, okay, nobody's going to the theaters anymore. Maverick comes out. Everybody goes to the theater, holy crap. I mean, people that you can't ignore that. The most woke thing. There is a direct correlation between how woke you are and how much money your film is going to lose. And how unwoke it is and how much money you're going to make. I

How Nicholas Cage Prepared for His 'Windtalkers' Role
"For this movie, according to IMDb at least, Nicholas cage actually learned the Navajo language. Even though he's I mean, he really, he's a method actor, so he probably learned some Japanese too. Yeah. Even though his character didn't speak, never spoke Navajo, but they were said in this article and IMDb that cage said he did it to better understand the script, but John whoo maintained that cage had misunderstood the character, which he had been cast, so who knows what the truth is. But yeah, he speaks some Japanese in the movie. That's pretty interesting.

"The bengals can had some stuff going on offense. We'll see that's my one of my bowl picks speak. I like the bengals. I'm going bears at home. I think they're the better team. I mean what's the line you have. I have three so basically. Is it basically a coin. Flip their home. Team usually gets three points when it's an even field I'm going to go to the bears. I think there are a lot better than they played. kinda ran into a buzzsaw a little bit. I don't think the bengals are as good as they played last week. so we're going to go bears. The bears are going to win by a touchdown. So they're gonna cover. I got the bears are first pick up. Oh taco all right week. I'm pretty sure we're going to pick the same one. We have an eleven and a half point. Spread on this game. Brown's texans in cleveland cleveland. Coming off that loss. They played pretty good. Just couldn't pull it out. At the end i picked the browns. They're gonna stomp the texans. Jack got twelve and a half. It's my line. i think it's going to be. I think houston covers twelve and a half so big number for. That's not really elite. You don't really put twelve and a half on a team like the brown. So i think the is gonna cover probably lose by anywhere from seven to ten. But i think they'll keep it close. I think that they did enough last week for me to know that there are a decent team. They're not great bound. Think the browns. There's good as people think we'll see all right next gaming browns bug it's gonna cover verna all right. We got rams colts in indianapolis. This might be different for us. You love the culture for some reason. Four point favorite rams on the road which is basically a touchdown. Take the rams. I looked really good. I think they're going to continue getting better.

How good hurts is and then both of us said really positive things about the packers net turned out horribly. Like i said figured out the one i was mo- shocked about was the patriots. Losing at home. I picked that one too now quarterback. They don't ever play good against dolphins. It really shocked me. I thought they were going to be a lot better. Delvin serves all the way around. I the dolphins are really good. I like their coaching lot of new. Not new pieces. In new england to be learning the patriots. Way and tom you are right. That was a terrible take by try. Eagles might be good. I believe that's what he's talking about. Tom's released no no. No eagles are not going to be good. Falcons are so bad. let's move onto our week. Two picks ski geeky geeky that her new job. I like that sure by. I'm gonna. I'm never gonna be able to do it again so i'll crop up all the up all the thing out all right. You gotta do better this week try. Oh that'd out. I'm going to just probably gonna win. I think we just need to have more stakes on. The line was energy. Should we put a stake on the line. I say whoever loses has to do the show next week without a shirt deal now known deal. Yeah you're pitchers a little. More body reminds us like shoulders. I don't mind show crop. Most of you can crop all right. Let's start with the giants washington football team. That is our thursday tomorrow night looking forward to that one i am. I'm just gonna go more chalk this week than i did Giants show that. They're not very good team. I think washington post win the division. We're good. i think. I've house last week the last week. That's last week. We choice a different man. So i think washington football team overall. I'm usually too on thursday nights once the season starts the home team's usually Got a little little advantage. Because they're not traveling. So i think thursday night team if you look at it statistically i think that the home team wins probably eighty percent of the time every time. So i'm gonna go with the home team washington football team not by just three and a half. The line is i think they're gonna win. By touchdown..

It was eight weeks. But i don't think he really knew when he opted to better for his career to get the surgery. Get it in a way not right into way eight weeks and then need the surgery and then he's jeopardizing mrs next season so he got a fish magic six to eight weeks. That's not good for the washington football team just as good some. Yeah i think he actually looked better than fit. So we'll see. I mean as good for thomas the tight end which i'm all about and they're just gonna pound to gibson i think yeah. Luckily they have a decently easy game this week. They got giants starring cary that they've got some got some weapons there. Fits was a world breaker. But i think he will not turn the ball over which is would be the big benefit that you get with him. Also we have with a couple of other ones jerry. judy Two different reports. I read one was four to six. The other one was six to eight. So that's a big shot to the old high ankle. Sprain might be either one. It might be a michael thomas situation more. He might come back at some point and then just be out after that. Good right anytime you hear ankle sprain. It's like almost better if you break it. In my opinion that's not true. At least you know you're not. It's like hamstring. You never know with the hamstring. Yeah the jets. Lost their starting left tackle a lot of and they had so. That'll be interesting. Couple other ones. No super big names thankfully what you might call it from the cowboys. Were just talking about it. Michael gallup gallop. he's out. I think six to eight. I think the moby longer marcus lawrence on their team was on the injury report as well. So there's some names. Luckily no way no christian. Mccaffrey like we had last year.

They bring the people back on the field to run another play instead of just kicking the forty nine yard field goal. And they throw that crazy high pass zeta-jones for the touchdown everyone in the whole stadium. Thousand year run just kept getting be one on one on defense and i think the raiders are a little bit better than people may have thought. I can't remember when we pick the division. But i think the raiders went in the division some outlandish but again it's just one week opener divisions why don't they may not win the division but they might be able to sneak out a i could see them being nine and eight eight nine somewhere around there. I don't think they're gonna blow the doors off of anybody. I mean they honestly they both teams should have won in both teams should a law. So i mean it's one of those weird things where the ball you know rose one way for you. Aren't we need to go to a game in vegas because it sounds like the most fun they had bruce buffer at the beginning of the game. I was going to be all the time it was. I think it's just for the first one. But i think they should just pay him to do. I think he did it for the knights playoff games. But i don't think the regular season. I mean he's probably in vegas already. Just let them do that. Just hanging out is well. I mean he's only got to do it. What eight and a half times. Yeah so we got him. We have a dj throughout the entire game an ice cube in too short in the halftime show. We need to go. I just sounds like a blast until you look at the tickets. I'm pretty sure that standing room only like seven hundred dollars a pop for the first week or every week. I think the tickets are outlandish. We'll look when we get off air. Okay but i know like season to the nights we were supposed to go for a bachelor party to night's game and it was like two hundred dollars standing room only for a hockey game. But they're good the raiders band. That's taken in town though. I mean you got a new arena. They're already going to you. Know charge a little bit more kind of like the kings for season tickets for a little more outlandish. They'll slowly go down. You gotta take like the monday off. Is that that what the plan. Hopefully it's a morning games. Yeah i think they have to be one o'clock game because they're usually are Because their west coast you'd have to. I think he'd that's.

Okay, I have to go into the heart of some darkness, but also find out what makes them take them. What makes them human was his dreams. What did he want? The Mingo goes deep into his craft. I'm Melissa Harris Perry, and that's next time on the takeaway weekday afternoons at three on 93.9 FM. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King and I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning today in New York, former President Donald Trump's family business and one of its leading executives are expected to be charged with financial crimes. This follows a three year probe by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. Reporter Ilya Merits is here now with details, Elliot. Thanks for being here. Good to be here first. What can we say about the meaning of this moment? I mean, a former president has never been charged with breaking the law. But the indictment we're going to hear today comes very close. Trump the man and Trump the business are, of course, literally synonymous and Donald Trump is so attached to his business. He was unwilling to divest from it or put it in a blind trust. After he was elected president. Now Trump in his business have been in court thousands of times Over the years. They have sued people, and they've been sued. You might remember the Trump University case in which Trump was accused of operating a sham university and he settled or the Trump Foundation case where he was accused of running a fake charity to benefit himself. He settled that one too. Every one of these court cases has always been civil, Never criminal, and that's what makes the arraignment. We're expecting this afternoon. So noteworthy for the first time the Trump business is Criminally charged criminal cases, of course, come with higher potential penalties and possible serious reputational damage, although we should just underscored Donald Trump is not being indicted. Himself today. What can you tell us about the arrangement and the exact charges that the Trump Organization is likely to face? These are the crimes advance, has said he was looking into scheme to defraud falsification of business records, insurance fraud and criminal tax fraud, all state level crimes. We don't know whether these crimes or others will ultimately be charged today because the criminal complaint isn't yet public. We do know that in recent months, prosecutors have been looking closely at whether or not taxes were paid on non salary forms of compensation for Trump Organization employees. Now it's pretty common for companies to sometimes pay their employees with little extras. But at the Trump organization, it went beyond that. And we know this because Alan Weiss Alberg CFO. His son, Barry, also works for Trump. And a few years ago when Barry Weisberg got divorced, his assets and income were part of that proceeding. So Jennifer Weisberg's attorney, Duncan 11, Told us that Trump orig paid way more than mere perks. These are multi million dollar apartments and tuitions to the most expensive private schools in the world. Renovations of marble and other You know, high end appliances and the core of this is serious. So the question here is whether taxes were paid on those perks. And if prosecutors allege they were not, can they prove it? So you mentioned Ilia that prosecutors were looking into other crimes beyond the tax fraud. Uh, charges if if that is all that's alleged today, the tax fraud is at the end of the story here. It would be really surprising. This has been a three year investigation. Donald Trump took Cyrus Vance all the way to the Supreme Court twice in an effort to block him from getting his financial records like tax returns. And we know that early on, Vance examined hush money payments made to two women who claimed they had affairs with Trump. Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, went to jail over that Trump was never charged Advances also looked into real estate valuations. So I'm going to be watching very closely to see a What crime or crimes are charged. There are, of course, only allegations and B whether the indictment tells a story about business practices of the Trump Organization, and if it does tell us something about how Trump does business that may also suggest additional charges that could be filed down the line.

Jim this is like the top grossing film of the year and also did quite welford self in oscars nominated for eight one three and it made like a billion times is budget not bad. Not bad Is directed by barry levinson which you might recognize from his work on the natural. Good morning vietnam wag. The dog and sleepers is written by barry morrow and ronald bass. Maybe ronald bass. I didn't look that up. Shoot just realized which we'll talk about. We'll talk a little bit. More about barry morrow when we start talking about the impact of the of the film had on this subject matter Stars of course. Dustin hoffman as raymond ray babbitt and it stars. Tom cruise is his brother. Charlie and also val area go lino. Who i'd only known as the hot funny girl from hotshots and hotshots part do as a remember her from them. She's actually. she's playing italian in this movie. So gotcha and i wondered if like what happened to her because she was in these big movies in the eighties and i looked through her Like imdb and some does just one thing after another match kept trying to work on both sides of the pond and one contract would interfere with another contract and then that would fall through and that was delayed and she liked it. Seemed like ten years relied. Click by and so. It's a shame in a lot of big movies like the. I'm not saying this was a big movie. But she went to rainman right after big top pee wee which you know not the best. But she's in like you said she was in leaving las vegas. She was in escape from la. She was leaving las vegas. Apparently playing someone named terry jesus. We just saw that movie. And i did not. I didn't did not really must've been a minor role

You have one that. If you're a fan of that franchise or a fan of that kind of movie. It has that kind rating in the a rating for a few. Don't particularly like that in your just watching it blind and i feel like almost all the ratings you find on any like thing. That's user submitted like imdb compress your right now. It's at six point. Five is godzillas rating in Almost like the average of godzilla fans and ran watching it. I will also say that some not so much on imdb but some of the reviews have been skewed for the stupidest reason. Which is that fans of. The snyder verse. Dc films have wanted. The snyder verse to get rebooted since they liked. The snyder cut of justice league so much. And so they've been review bombing godzilla vs kong. Because that's also warner brothers. That's weird. I'm going to step away from for a sec. Because we've gone from bird to annoying yappy dog dog. Oh well never mind. Then if you can't hear it it's fine. I bird is more powerful than dog as improving today. So all those people who are going to dogfights bring a bird instead also go to dogfights. Those are terrible also. Don't bring a bird it's ridiculous idea. Choice people's obsession with the snyder versus something. I'm going to get into a little bit later. Maybe depends on that we have time for. We've got all up here today. All i gotta say. I'm never watching it. No i'm never gonna watch. The snyder cut no low four hours. Long by the way the makers of godzilla vs calling have said they have enough for like a five hour movie which led me to question. Why did you keep certain things in there. Then mine is who are these..

Breaking the Glass Slipper: Women in science fiction, fantasy, and horror
Hollywood Monsters with Mallory OMeara
"History is written by the winners by men early editors of science fiction anthologies choice to exclude by women and in doing so made many believe that women did not write science fiction in the genres earliest years. This is just one example. And by no. Means the only one mallory mira self-confessed monster lava and film. Ned discovered a similar story in one of her favourite monsters. Millicent patrick was one of disney's earliest female animators and went on to design one of the greatest film monsters of the creature from the black lagoon but a jealous smell. Coworker ensured that there was no prestigious career. A rating millicent. Mallory decided to set the record straight in her book. The lady from the black lagoon. Hollywood monsters and the lost legacy of millicent. Patrick and reestablish. Millicent of monster design mallory. Thank you for joining us. But before we get stuck into things would you please introduce yourself to our listeners. high Yeah thank you so much for having the ottoman cited to to talk about this with you. Three i m author of lady from the black lagoon an fulltime author. And i'm also fellow podcasters. I host the show reading glasses every week with my friend. brea grant. what did you hope to achieve by. Unearthing the story of million patrick and setting the record straight about her contribution to monster design. Well a few things honestly the impetus behind me working on in in writing from the black lagoon was just i wanted to know. Millicent has been my hero. Since i was a teenager and i wanted to satisfy my own personal curiosity i found out about her when i was seventeen and it just seemed creature from the black lagoon like nobody even knew if she was still alive. She didn't have a website. She didn't have a wikipedia entry. Nothing about her online. So i personally just really really wanted to know at as i started digging into her life and her work and in this book i i also just. I wanted people to know that we've always been here. You know i. I actually started working on this book before the metoo movement happened and while i think it's amazing that there's such a huge push right now to get more women in front of the camera behind the camera writing doing everything women everywhere in cosigned for me but i also think it's really important to have people know that women have always been here. We have a legacy here and millicent. Patrick is proof. That and if i could only unearth her story and bring it to the world than i could could prove it is funny. You say that. Because i remember i was a massive star trek fan still but i remember in high school being completely obsessed with original series star trek and then discovering that d c fontana was a woman and i was like women have been there from the beginning. We right star trek. Yeah so i. I definitely can get on board with excitement. It changes everything. I mean finding out that a woman who designed this incredible monster that i became completely obsessed with it changed my life. It made me realize up until that point all of my heroes in the monster world. Where met you know tom. Savini rick baker. Dick smith jack pierce. It never even occurred to me that women did those things and seeing just one single photo of seeing a woman working on the creature from the black lagoon. It broke my brain open. It was like being struck by lightning. And it you can. You can make a direct line from that moment in time in front of my computer. Seven seventeen to me becoming a filmmaker later on up reading a bit about medicine on. You mentioned that you back. Then she didn't have a wikipedia entry. She does have one now on your on it as well. Yes i mean we're competing is basically all from the bottom up until that point there was no there was really no biographical information about her and the stuff that was out there was largely false Sometimes because of Militants own she liked to fabricate biographical information about which was very fun for me to deal with as biographer But it's now now actually people who she is and she has a wikipedia. Entry people You google tons of stuff comes up. It's really it makes me really really happy. So how did she become raised from history in the first ice so the her boss at the universal studios monster shop and she worked there in the early nineteen fifties was a man named bud west more and he was part of a very very famous big family of makeup artist. The west morris His father actually. George west was the man who invented the idea of a makeup department so they were huge. Deal in hollywood at the time he had a massive amount of power and influence not just at universal but in the film world is a whole unfortunately he was also known for taking people's credit being very jealous of the other artists that worked with him if they were more successful or more talented than he was which wasn't hard to do And she designed creature and they shot the movie and it became very clear that the movie was going to be a huge hit. They the universal studios publicity department wanted to send millicent on a press tour to promote it and up until that point in history know in the fifties. There was no twitter. There was no. Imdb there is no way for people to really look into the details of of credits on films. You know back then. There was no like ten minutes end. Crawl at the end of a movie like we get now. There was only like these cards that gave the heads of department Credit for the things that they did so no matter. What but didn't design at on a movie increase in the credits creature. It says makeup. Bud west more So he never was challenged. People always just assume that he designed everything that came out of his shop

Best Case Worst Case
Is the Netflix documentary "Cutie" breaking federal law?
"Alone. Welcome to best case worst case this is Jim Clemente retired profiler former New York City prosecutor writer-producer CBS's criminal minds with today's high everybody. It's Francey, Hague's former state and federal prosecutor. Jim. Across the country and if it's possible, I'm even more outraged. Shall I say enraged than I was last week I find it. I. Don't know very believable. Because I know you but I know what you're outraged and enraged about. I agree with you tim I don't understand what's happening. You know we've we've done what is happening I. Don't know we've done. I don't know how many episodes where we've talked about. Hollywood. We've talked about power position predators. We've talked about a Hollywood sexualizing we talked about that movie call me by your name I remember that one member that you and I saw that. and. Just being outraged at the sexualizing of children and in that movie if I'm not mistaken, there was a nineteen year old actor playing a fifteen year old boy I think if I remember correctly. and. That was bad enough because it was depicting. The sexualization of a child even though it wasn't an actual trial here Jim in the newest entry into net flicks Pantheon, we have a movie called well in English. It's called cuties and it was released just last night as you are recording here. So on September ninth here in the US. Anyway it was released on Netflix said it's a French movie I think the original title was something like Lehman Mignon. Which I would. You know I was a French minor but French is a longtime ago for me I, thought meant the little ones but maybe it means cuties regardless. The Americanized is name is called cuties. And Jim. I didn't see the movie yet. But I've seen a clip of a dance from the movie before we get into the discussion of the movie. Let me just tell people who haven't seen the clips and you haven't seen the description of the movie. What is purportedly about? This movie is described by various media critics who've seen it. As a coming of age tale, a young girl fighting against the patriarchy. Now, how is she coming of age how she fighting against the Patriarchy this eleven year old she joins she's a Muslim child and she joins a dance troupe. Wow. That sounds interesting. Right she's breaking out of her cultural barriers whatever they might be or whatever she perceives them to be. She joins a child's dance troupe with a bunch of other eleven year old well, that sounds perfectly innocent. Well not really however. It's really not Jim because you and I have seen the clip why don't you take it from here? Well, for not I did just see the clip and I was shocked I was shocked at two things one the focus of the camera. On the general areas of young girls very deliberately. Very, sustained, very purposefully. But I'm also shocked by the fact that this depicts a dance competition and in the dance competition, these girls are on stage in public. Doing these you know basically dance moves and I'm using those air quotes that are that are basically saying and touching their general areas and a showing off between their legs I mean. They're simulating sex. That's the that's certainly a very. Easy determination or that's an argument that. CAN EASILY BE. Made. So, this bothers me for two reasons. One is that. It's apparently a competition that they're in in which this kind of behavior is actually. Promoted and encouraged. But the documentary style of it. Is that they are showing close ups of these girls is one thing if they're thirty, forty, fifty feet away on a stage, but to have a camera. where the entire screen is filled with the Crotch of an eleven year old girl and the camera is focused on that and again it's sustain it's not just passing. That is part of the definition of child pornography when a child is centralized in a way and they don't have to be naked for it to be child pornography but the image has to be focused on the Genitalia or on sexual activity, and even if that's mimicking sexual activity is putting a child in a sexualize situation and I believe that this does that. In fact, and I, I don't know what the rest of this movie is about but it's scary to think that this is just one scene in movie that that purports to do things like for example. There's a parental warning apparently on imdb would says, one of the many highly sexualize erotic dance scenes. That purposefully exploit an objectify numerous scantily clad underage girls. One of the female child dancers lifts upper crop top to fully display her bare breast. This they're saying. This is supposedly literally pulled from my md be yes. That's pulled from my MTV which they've changed as of now this this has just been a massive explosive controversy over the last twelve hours Jim and you're absolutely right. I. Hate telling you that because God? Usually wrong. But here you're absolutely right. It does fit the definition at least in the United States the federal definition for child pornography, which is the lascivious display of the genitals for the purpose of arousing the sexual desires of the viewer. There is no other way to describe how these children are dancing and that IMDB description minimizes it by saying it's sexualizing or Roddick with underage girls. They're eleven, years, old eleven what is that? Fifth. Grade. Fourth Grade. That's it's crazy that anyone thinks that this is okay. But the most important thing to me is that I think it might be a federal crime. It certainly fits the definition now in federal law in this country, there is an exception if it's art, but that is required to provide a whole bunch of information to the Attorney General of the United States about the age of the actors when there's any depiction. The age of these actors is clearly under eighteen. There's no question about it. Not Right now, typically Hollywood gets away with it by having someone who has just turned eighteen play somebody who's younger but that's not what's going on here and there was among the years ago called kids I think and they did the same thing they had actually young people and although they didn't actually they sort of hit the sexual parts, they suggested it. But this because of the music that's playing in the background that's clearly of a sexualize nature because of the humping that's going on and the touching of the general areas by these girls, and then you know the cutesy sucking on the finger. To, make it seem like an innocent girl is being sexualize. It's all together. It really does make me. Believe that they are they are violating federal child pornography statute and I think that that's something that you know it's not just well, this is a French movie and we're trying to be open minded this this this description goes on to say. Trigger Warning and eleven year old girl watches a female rap music video where naked women role play through dance both heterosexual lesbian sex acts an eleven year old. Female. Dance Group then mimics these sexual moves, the on themselves and on each other while the camera zooms in on their sexual body parts as they erratically rise. This can be highly distressing to many viewers. Covered Hani legal.
