"Spotting. I don't know Josh. I guess my senses were so overloaded last week from seeing Harvey Keitel in address and lipstick that I just had to recover. We're going to take a week off from our gene campion Uber review. Completely understandable. That one sticks with you. Yeah, it does. And the film holy smoke with keitel and Kate Winslet sticks with you as well. A pretty good one that we enjoyed discussing last week. We will get back to our campion overview next week with in the cut in 2003, of course, starring Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo. Instead, we've got our 2017 sacred cow review of Wes Anderson's Rushmore. We will also share our updated Anderson ranked lists and Joshua put a lot of thought into your recommendation for introducing the Anderson uninitiated to the director's work, specifically for budding cinephiles. Yeah, more specifically 8th graders. I have to really drill down to the nitty Gritty there, but hopefully other people find that interesting as well. First, though, it's off to Enrique France for our review of the French dispatch. It began as a holiday. Eager to escape a bright future on the great plains, Arthur howitzer junior transformed the series of travelogue columns into the French dispatch factual weekly report on the subjects of world politics. The arts, high and low, and diverse stories of human interest. You don't think it's almost too seedy this time. No, I don't. Do some people supposed to be charming. The assembled a team of the best expatriate journalists of his time. Berenson, sazerac. Kremlin's robot grite. These were his people. Just try to make it sound like you wrote it that way on purpose. Adam, I could deliver a straightforward simple setup for our review of the French dispatch. Efficiently stating the facts that this is the tenth film from writer director Wes Anderson and anthology movie, dramatizing a handful of the stories published in the fictional title magazine. A New Yorker style American periodical headquartered in a quintessential French city. But I thought something different might better capture the experience of the film. Imagine the following as being narrated by Angelica Houston. It began as the setup to a review. The movie under consideration featured actors well known to most audiences. Having already established themselves by playing iconic characters. Marge Gunderson, doctor Peter venkman, and Paula tradies. They and others agreed to be part of the large ensemble for the French dispatch. Plane writers and editors of various kinds inspired by real-life scribes such as Janet flanner, James Baldwin and James Thurber. Here, an excerpt from a March 1955 Baldwin peace in commentary magazine entitled equal in Paris. I had come to Paris originally with a little over $40 in my pockets. Nothing in the bank, and no graphs whatever of the French language. It developed shortly that I had no grasp of the French character either. I considered the French and ancient intelligent and cultured race, which indeed they are. I did not know, however, that ancient glories imply, at least in the middle of the present century, fatigue, and quite probably paranoia, that there is a limit to the role of the intelligence in human affairs, and that no people come into possession of a culture without having paid a heavy price for it. Surely an early draft of that essay was written by Baldwin and a notebook and notebooks are a common motif in the French dispatch. Indeed, the early draft of this setup was scribbled in a 48 page memo book, measuring three and a half inches by 5 and a half inches available only from field notes located in Chicago, Illinois. If you start with the right notebook, 14% of your writing task is already finished. In another field notes memo book, jotted down while watching the French dispatch at the Chicago press screening, this author wrote among others, these words, Tati, epiphany. Kidnapping by comic strip. A new flavor. Other citations regarding the French dispatch took place digitally. On the film spotting slack at 9 45 a.m. on Sunday, October 24, Adam kempner wrote this, regarding the planned episode, Perry Anderson's movie with Jane campions in the cut. Can we take in the cutoff and rerun tenon bounds sick or Rushmore or whatever? At 9 50 a.m. on that same day, Sam van hogger responded good idea. And we could do a quick Anderson ranked as part of segue into Rushmore. I wouldn't do tenenbaums because I'm on that one. This was a reference to his appearance on film spot in 5 89 for a sacred cow review of the royal tenenbaum and a discussion of the top 5 non kids movies to show your kids. A rare instance in recent years of the stalwart film spotting producer returning to the mic. Notably absent from that slack exchange was this author, who's Sunday was filled with a number of activities, including appropriately seen the French dispatch for a second time..
