In every way and you come home to your family nestle one place where you can feel in charge of something so you might take it out on your woman pretty interesting stuff for years. I thought aback man was behind. It turned out it was a white man and they happened today. He wouldn't even get a chance to make the move. He would have to probably use somebody as like a shield or something to which is what happened with this movie queen slim lake. They say like The guy who wrote and this is full circle houses. Full circle The movie queen slim was like this kind of black lives matter. You know kind of music video type of movie very shallow very Think peace Think peace theater.

Could it just made a novel and not have had to You know felt like he had to prove he was kind of Real-life addict it's fiction because that's what this book was or you know. Use some back woman as a front to tell this other story you know but yeah yeah i think that's one of the ironies over correction. I just think it's like. I think it's like This is sociopaths. Can't go to therapy. Because if they go to. Just learn to be Better sociopaths i feel like the decision just told people who they had to be to tell the story instead of actually opened the door to more Realty just taught him how to fake certain things to get away with writing about certain things. Well that's that's sort of That's not really that much of a surprise. In that i mean james frye you know there was this sort of public shaming and scandal and oprah like spanked him on live television or whatever and there was this sort of Sense of okay..

"I'm gonna make the terrible joke here. Josh and say there must be something in the water. What is happening with all the mermaids stuff. Last week we talked about christian pencils. Water nymph parable. Dina this week. It's pictures luca. I'm blaming you. It'd be a great idea. Adam if if someone did like a related top five to this phenomenon. I mean maybe someone else will take care of that okay. Yeah we'll take that under advisement. We will get to a review of luca later in the show. I though we're going to give out some awards. We finished up our seven from seventy six best year ever series last week with michael schulz's co- comedy car wash this week. We're going to name our favorite performances scenes films and more and maybe we should provide a little bit of background here. Josh on the best year ever series we revisit or in some cases finally catch up with movies that help define great movie years. It's something we started a couple years back with the twentieth anniversary of nineteen ninety nine. We did our nine from ninety nine then talked about fight club being john. Malkovich magnolia eyes wide shut. Success was in there. We had so much fun with that. We followed it. Up with eight from eighty. Four ghostbusters gremlins. This is spinal. Tap amadeus and others part of that series in this year. Hopefully you can see the pattern. It's seven from seventy six and josh. We started it with four of the movies that were nominated for best picture. At the nineteen seventy seven oscars. Those were all the president's men taxi driver network and the eventual winner rocky. Those were all revisits for us. Much to your chagrin with rocky josh. That is once you realize you had actually seen network before right. Yeah you'd think. I'd remember that but you know it's just those years of network being part of oscar montages the i thought. Maybe i've never actually seen this whole thing i did. You know who did so. I saw it again after those best picture. Nominees there was shantelle ackerman's news from home. A blind spot for both of us. Barbara coppell's harlan county. Usa a blind spot an actual blind spot for you. Josh and finally as we mentioned car wash it was a fund series and a short one. It's june were already done. Didn't spread this out over the course of the year. Maybe we'll get into the habit of that and when we close out. Remind me josh. That i can already give you a preview of six from sixty what i do have thoughts looking ahead but first let's look back. You put out last week call for listeners to name these awards. It wouldn't be a film spotting award ceremony. If there wasn't a name we have to hand out some kind of prize. And we of course got some great suggestions. Starting with dylan. Dome in blair nebraska. He went with the golden italian stallions. Of course referencing rocky there. Another rocky one here. The mighty mix another from dylan. The mad prophet's that's a network reference as the corporate cosmology. A bit of a deep cut. Their dylan tumour suggestions. He had the follow. The money's reference to all the president's men and the which side are you on a reference to harlan county. I'm going to say you know i. I like some of those. But i can't abide iraqi reference as the name of these awards okay. I won't do that to you. I think the followed the monies and the which side are you on are very clever kind of a mouthful i think the josh miller l. a. has our answer he says how about the flowerpots named after the system. Bob woodward uses to communicate with an anonymous source in all the president's men rearranging the flowerpot on his balcony. Plus a flower pot would be a nice little trophy to take home. And you see it's practice. Yeah maybe that does put it over the top. It's practical nothing to do with rocky. I like it. Yeah and. I'm sure robert redford and patty tchaikovsky. Rest in peace and everyone else who populated are seven from seventy six series will be eagerly anticipating the delivery of their flowerpot. Let's find out who has a shot at getting that coveted prize. We're gonna start with our award for best supporting performance and this is good places any to mention the passing of the great ned beatty eighty three years old oscar nominated for his memorable single scene performance in network and it is that good. He also conveniently shows up in all the president's men. Maybe not quite as memorably. This performance in network was his only oscar nomination. Josh mark harris weighed in on his career. He's so great at memorializing screen legends when they pass. And here's what he wrote to me. Ned beatty is what a career in screen acting is all about. I can't think of one thing he was in that he didn't make better. You know the film credits but he was also a tv. Legend homicide life on the street. Friendly fire the marcus. Nelson murders one of the greats r.i.p. Some of those film credits include his debut was deliverance. He was also in robert. Altman's nashville in seventy six. There was network all the president's men and elaine. May's mikey and nicky. That was part of our. Elaine may marathon a few years back. He was of course. Also lex luther. Henchman otis in seventy eight superman and its sequel and maybe gave one of the best vocal performances ever in an animated movie as lonzo in toy story three. Oh lots of hugging bear. That i mean that might be my favorite beatty performance that the cuddly villain there and i love the sort of that suspicious drawl. He gives as lots so so great but even something you mentioned his debut and deliverance. Adam i think when we talked about that film we spent some time of course the notorious scene where he's assaulted but there are so many layers to that largely because of what he does with that character in the other scenes in the move. You know it's he's he's coming when he's going on this trip. He kind of takes what he wants of the land and looks down on the people they meet. So it's all of those complications. Come into play in that notorious. Seen that he's you know often remembered for his last film credit was twenty thirteen. He was as we said oscar-nominated there were actually seven nominees from our series who were up for the award either. Best supporting actor or best supporting actress. Jason robards eventually one for all the president's men. Jane alexander also nominated for all the president's men beatrice straight one for network joining ned beatty there with a nomination that we had to from. Rocky burgess meredith and burt young and also jodie foster from taxi driver. Incidentally the other three nominees that year laurence olivier for marathon manley grant voyage of the damned and piper. Laurie who could forget piper. Laurie mrs white and brian depalma's carrie now josh. I'm gonna guess that your winner of the flowerpot for best supporting performance comes from one of those seven that was nominated though two names. I'll throw out both very good in the series finale bill duke and ivan dixon my two favorite performances in michael schultz's carwash all throw them into the mix. Where did you go with your price. Yup definitely consider those two especially bill duke. I think you know as abdulah he was. He was kind of the movies. Wet blanket for much of the running time. But then he also becomes. Its most moving character in a way with that final scene. We talked about where he He laments having to work at this clown show and his words so definitely thought about bill. Duke also thought about carl. Weathers apollo creed in rocky here. I'm going to give rocky some early. Love here adam. He's just so cocky. So crafty and as i talked to i love how he delivers. Essentially movies thesis speech. You know about american sentimentality. So carl weathers was a nominee for me and of course ned beatty the corporate cosmology speech. I mean if you're going to get one scene at its that rich. That median you deliver. You deserve to to get the oscar nod but my winner. And even as i'm saying this adam and you were running through those other nominees and i know that she was not only a nominee but one but i think the academy considered her in a lead role and i have her. Here is my supporting winner. That's faye dunaway for network. And i guess it's i think network has such as such an ensemble piece as really a handful of these seventy six movies were that it didn't strike me to check up on that. So we're we don't play by academy rules here adam. I'm going away in that merck. She was the highlight for me in this movie. The re discovery in a sense just how she devours all these scenes. she's in She's so driven she so brazen. She's so unscrupulous. i talked about her. Maybe being a prototype for the michael. Douglas sleazy business types. We'd get in the eighties. She seems like a model for him. And i just love the way. She even works her eyebrows throughout the movie where she starts to kind of salivate over something..

"Pryor there had to be a lot of improv. Going on in these scenes you think right so then so then what you've got here. Is you could criticize car washes saying oh. I see a lot of white liberal imagination. What someone might think these sort of characters would act like and hold that against. I'm sure that's an element. But then you've got the improv where some of these performers of color are bringing their own truth to these moments and and taking the script maybe where they want it and then you have schultz bringing his own perspective so it really is. It's a movie that has I don't know a lot of elements that could be more at odds with them with each other than they are it. It's very self aware about the tensions within it and find it manages to find comedy there as well. And you know you're right to mention that there are serious conversations about pay here and and not being paid enough and i actually didn't make that connection harlan county. And it's right there that's a total connection and also near the end. There's a remarkable scene between lonnie ivan dixon. Here the parolee and abdullah has come. Come back at night. It's just the two of them and abdullah tells him he breaks down and says it's all falling apart right and he says he's basically talking about the economic corner he feels like he's he's put in but he also references the car wash itself. I thought it was really interesting that he says he can't watch this clown show anymore. Idaho man i don't know.
