"To bound back for the meyerowitz story. Movie I love. Then Logan lucky with your boy Steven Soderbergh. Did we mention soda? No, we didn't mention some of her. I'm sorry, Stephen. In 2018, he gets his first Oscar nomination for his role in BlacKkKlansman. He was tremendous in black men's men as detective flip Zimmerman. He helps Terry Gilliam achieve his long yearned for desired his desire to make the man who killed Don Quixote, a movie that ultimately I think didn't work either, but he basically was the vessel for funding, and that's obviously something you can do when you reach this level of status too, as you can get movies made. He made the report in 2019 and the dead don't die reuniting with Jim jarmusch and then marriage story for which he was again Oscar nominated. Now let me tell you something. Yes. I rewatched that one last night, too. Have you watched that one since you became a parent? No. I was on the floor. It's so good. And so brutal. I remember that. I remember being also particularly brutal to the city of Los Angeles, which is the city that I saw. Yeah, but that House is so good. I just spent a lot of time really coveting that house to me to where it is. I assume it's like somewhat palisades. It's so beautiful. At this moment, after marriage story was released, I saw merit story at the Telluride film festival that year. This was also the last great film year, an amazing time for movies. My reaction to it, and we did a long podcast about marriage story. Was like this is it. We have the guy. We have the actor of our generation. He's about our age. He has incredible taste. He's Oscar nominated, but also is appearing in incredible franchises. This was right before The Rise of Skywalker came out. And ever since then, it's been a little tricky. It's been a little dicey, I don't know if the stock is down. I don't necessarily take issue with any of the choices that he's made since then. But they're worth examining a little bit more closely, okay? Okay. The first one is obviously the Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker. I think he had a choice in this. I believe he signed up for a trilogy and a trilogy he made. And that film doesn't work at all. No. And the resolution of his character is offensive. And also that is your character. Yes, it stinks.

"And thank you for joining us for the 482nd episode of The Hollywood Reporter's awards chatter podcast. I'm the host Scott feinberg. And for those of you tuning in, we are recording this episode in front of an audience of students at Chapman university in Orange County, where I'm a trustee professor at the Dodge college of film and media arts. My guest today is one of the most talented and exciting young actors in Hollywood. As we'll discuss in greater detail in a moment, he started out in the business as a pre teen on TV series aimed at kids and young adults, then had a big breakthrough on Broadway in 2018, and then began getting cast in films by some of the world's top filmmakers. Among them, Jim jarmusch, who directed him in the dead don't die, and Quentin Tarantino, who directed him in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Both of which were released in 2019 just before the pandemic. And then, of course, he starred in the film that we've just screened here. Baz luhrmann's Elvis, which was one of the most popular releases of 2022. For his performance as Elvis Presley between the ages of 19 and 42, this 31 year old received the sorts of reviews that actors dream of. And between those and the reactions of the public, it quickly became clear that we have a major new star on our hands. That impression has only grown over the last few months during which he won best actor BAFTA and Golden Globe Awards and was nominated for best actor critics choice and sag awards. And on March 12th, he will be up for the best actor Academy Award as well. Poised to become its 5th youngest winner ever.

"Now at this point, Kate had been away from the screen for a very long time indeed, but Hollywood hadn't forgotten. They just kept calling. Finally, she answered. The filmmakers, many of whom have been discussed tonight who have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to collaborate with her. Read like a who's who of the greatest filmmakers of our time, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Jillian Armstrong, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Peter Jackson, Terrence malick, Anthony minghella, Todd Haynes, Jim jarmusch, Bruce beresford, check our David Fincher, Steven Soderbergh, Adam McKay, Alfonso cuaron. Alejandro and Iran to Guillermo del Toro. I'm going to stop there. It's just a name but a lucky few. Yes. How lucky they all were. And how lucky I am. And how lucky the world is to live in a time where Cate Blanchett, grace was our stages and screens. And walks the earth for our common good. John larm of The New Yorker got it right. Her informed heart. That is Cate Blanchett. And yes, she is one of the greatest actors who's ever lived. What a privilege and joy it is to introduce to you my friend and colleague and the recipient of the outstanding performer of the year award. V one. And only. Kate Blanchett. Thank you so much. Thank you, Todd. Thank you. Thank you. I won't bang on. You've heard enough and seen enough. But thank you so much, Todd. And it really is lovely to be back in Santa Barbara. Which is a place that, yeah, that is some, it's a community so full of spirit and such a warm, loving film loving community. So thank you to the Santa Barbara film festival for the third time, clearly a lot of people have said no. Here we go. You got me again. Thank you. And for outstanding performance of the year, it's an honor in any, but this year, in particular, when there have been so many outstanding idiosyncratic performances, memorable performances by women of wildly different shapes and sizes and artistic ambition. It's an honor indeed. So thank you so much. And thank you, roger. And thank you Scott for the conversation. Thank you very much. And for the reminder that I have been in this industry, for quite some time, which really is a genuine surprise to me that I've been able to pursue what I love. I mean, in a way, acting is a sort of a physical visceral form of anthropology. You get to sort of excavate a character, a set of relationships and the circumstances that they live in. You know, involves dance and theater. And costume architecture and random snatches of conversation. And they're all channeled into one form. And that is a form that I love so much, which is film. And the last 30 years, my passion in the film industry has been the craft of acting. And this passion has led me to seek out roles that can deepen and challenge that craft. And in doing so, you fail. And you fail and you fail. And sometimes it works. And that is, you know, you can do all the homework in the world. And the film can succeed, but it fails to reach an audience. And so I often think about what we what we decide is a successful film. What we decide is a successful performance. Is it one that wins awards like this? Or is it one that stands the test of time and people discover in ten years time? It's so it's so personal in a way. And so thank you for that painful. It's a very big way to look at yourself. I mean, you don't. You don't really ever get your phone just doesn't prepare you for that. So just yeah. But it also, I think the gift, I'm a wonderful audience member, by the way, I love going to the theater. I love going to live music and to dance and to the cinema. And just to forget who I am and to strangers in the dark, imagine somebody else's ambition. And I think often when we think about what people are trying to do there up on the big screen, it's important to remember, what are they trying to do rather than do I like it? Do I dislike it? I mean, these things aren't often useful assessments about what is actually people are trying to do up there. Maybe they're trying to do something to shift us into uncomfortable and different places. And that is certainly what Todd field did for me. And for audiences in tar. And look, let's be Frank. I do like being a little bit terrified. But it's only such roles that ask you to shift and change. And that our startling in game changing and they are only as startling in game changing as the stories. They sit within. And they're determined by the dance partners that you are lucky enough to find yourself paired with. And they are also dependent upon the delicate dance that you find and make with a director. And I know how I know how rare those collaborations are firsthand. And so I accept this honor a hundred and million 1 trillion % in the name of the most generous inspiring of collaborators that I had ever had the great good fortune to work with. And that is Todd field. Because tar consumed

Oh, go dart, fellini. Nah. Nah. Polansky. Kubrick. Nah. Man. I was a Spielberg, dude. What he does with the camera to me is awesome. He, the camera is telling you the story. If you just pay attention, he shot what's in the foreground? What's in the background? It's all all. Helping the narrative. The whole freaking movie. He's involved in the set direction. Even look at Schindler's List. He colorized the little dead girl in the dress in the red dress. The only thing of color in the whole movie. Genius. Dominic acquitted domo Juan.

"I've always been somewhat of a loner. In terms of how. I a lot my time and i think having a lot of alone. Time and space gives you the psychic space to be creative especially if you're if you're processes as self sufficient as minus you know so it doesn't inherently have to be very collaborative having said that i mean it's always intriguing. There are always instances where your interaction with younger artists. Something that to get Action from or is never a bad thing. I mean there's always a a mutual respect in a sense of brotherhood endure or whatever that you get from that but you know. It's not something that i am looking at to pursue in a broader sense. You know a lot of people get to a certain point where you're audience. I mean might my audience for solo. Work is always been solar anyway. You know compared to fleetwood mac. I mean for if there's people that listen to feedback. Probably i get one of those who who took for whom the solo work makes sense. You know because it's a different animal in a To sort of thwart the preacher -ception. They may have about the in fleetwood mac but a lot of artists who will pursue the idea of collaborative efforts as visibility. Too you know and mean. I'm not opposed to that but at the same time. I'm not someone who is out there looking for that in order to fulfill some sort of commercial outcome. Because it's not something i've ever done. I've always had the fleetwood. Mac is the big machine and and the solo work where where i continue to grow and learn and hopefully create a more pure sense. And it's kind of like i. I said the smart in his cast. If you're a film director and you were making that choice. It would be like you know if you wanna be jim jarmusch or somebody like that. You know you're not gonna think about the business you're doing and try to hold it up to spielberg movie. You're obviously going to reach much smaller audience. But you're doing what you wanna do. You're creating on your own terms. And that's that's a trade off you've got to be believed to make you know and i think it makes a lot more sense when when we do here you elsewhere it it it. It's a piece like the the solo you contributed to the killers record last year. Which was and it could have been done by anybody else Yeah great guys. I think One of the things that struck me in you know in in hearing the other interviews you've done in the press for the cycle is that it does seem like there is a sense of the carry some sense of optimism about future collaborations with the band. Is that still something that you carry in your heart or is it just. If it happens it happens. We'll i whenever went down with ban. You know all of them stevie everybody. I don't hold any grudges. I i know everyone is doing the best they and it doesn't. I don't blame anyone for anything if there were things that i did to. enable that were to create it in some way. I would want to own up to that. But having said that you know i i don't. I didn't feel bad that i wasn't part of that tour. They did the only thing that concerned me that i felt ohi. Nineteen that concern me. And that i felt a little bit disappointed by or perhaps more than a little was that Again you go back to the legacy of fleetwood mac and that legacy is about rising above difficulties and the fact for forty three years where she'll here especially after christine came back. These five people are still working it out and it may be not easy but but there there is on higher.

And i was just like hey i think i'm just gonna do some film and then when i got there like I was like i don't. I don't think i compete with can compete with these people. So i ended up going to a small kind of little liberal arts program within the university. Yeah and did that for two years. And then i slowly kind of started doing. I took a couple of film courses. But i was just i was just too. I just wasn't. I was really green. I wasn't very self confident. I was your freshman. Well right you know. And i was in the middle of new york city. It was just all incredibly intimidating so a Anyway but we're asking for that. I mean you kind of wanted that intimidated by that. Well yeah yeah but i. I was intimidated. But i was like. This is exactly where. I wanna be so you know anyway. I just started. I took a couple of music studies courses and some creative writing courses. And then i took a course by this guy named robert chris gow who was the senior rock critic for the village voice and i did really well in his class and then when i graduated he set me up with an internship village voice. And that's when i started doing like writing about music so when you were there that would have been in the eighties. No i'm kind of trying to replace everything though. It was eighty nine. When i got okay. So the movie the movie down by law yes already come out. Yes and That was a gentleman. Jim jarmusch and Tom com weight. And the the. What's that guy would say. He was in beautiful. Yes italian yeah and then the tall guy. The lounge lizards guy john. Laurie yeah now. I was in houston when that movie came out. And i'd been going to new orleans on business and that movie. I had an experience with that movement. It was because it showed these little shack like places on some road in the town that i normally didn't take was usually coming in on. I attend that might have been some other road. That was by the swamps and stuff did people sort of say wow. Did you know about that movie or i mean. Was that kind of thing that they associated or head to even seen it down by law. Yeah down by down by law was definitely kind of You know it was. It was a kind of one of the hip things it was like. You know the epitome of like underground cinema and cool and everything and asking whether i'm just trying to. I'm not sure what i'm asking. Are you wondering where people like. Look because it's it was filmed in louisiana. That's right and did they associate you with the film or did you think that they think that was cool. That you're from new orleans. Oh no no i mean. They thought i was called from new orleans. But the thing that like i found was real. It was very surprising to me was that i was called that i was considered a southerner when i went to nyu. I mean you kind of ara. I know i know. But like i didn't. I mean you know you grow up in new orleans. You don't necessarily think. Think of yourself. In a redneck. Or or is it a redneck or even in the south. Like i mean orleans kind of it's different this other world but also as you grow up in the south you're not really aware of yourself as a southerner true just kind of in this place and then i would. I went to new york. And i said i didn't understand. I didn't know that like saying y'all yeah. Was this different thing. I thought it was just like that's just the way we spoke and everybody was like every time i said y'all y'all y'all and they all thought i walked really slow and then what a bunch of idiots. Yeah isn't that stupid. Yeah i went. I went to school in baltimore. Same thing really. The way address talked all of it and it was startling especially when you're younger you know when you're in that year old eighteen year old you don't you know it it it. I completely agree. I know exactly what you so you know. The fact is basically what you did. Was you left the south for good. I mean it's like you're gonna find this career for yourself in new york. Despite.

Street Photography in New York City, with Gerard Exupery
"Back to another episode of this week and photo. I'm your host frederik van johnson today on the show got gerard exupery. He's a veteran new york city based street photographer. That knows more about street photography than than or has forgotten more about it than i probably will ever know about street photography. We're gonna dive into that a little bit as well as what. It's like shooting in and around new york city now and before pandemic all that stuff going to talk about gear all this stuff so gerard. Welcome to the show man. How's it going very well. Glad to be here. Yeah it is good to hear man. I'm excited to chat. So we've got you know. The the john mara of photography. And then this genre of let's call it of photojournalism or that that world of shooting. What's the difference. What's the difference between street photography. And that i think that in journey with photo journalism you tend to think in terms of projects. Not just one image. You know a a series of images that tell a complete story and i think with straight photography. is generally just one image. Okay okay has got to tell the story one at a time. So let let's rewind back to the time to. Let's let's do origin story thing so cue. The flashback so the origin story of girard. Where what was that moment where you knew that. Okay i feel like. I need to be taking pictures of this. This amazing city. I live in well on my planet. We didn't really have photography. And when i came to earth. And i'm sorry all right more and you know it's funny. It's the only thing i've ever wanted to do since As far back as i can remember one of my earliest memories of my father staying his role affleck's in my hand. While i took the first picture took and which was a ship underneath the verrazano bridge and it just stuck in my mind. He passed away about a year after that. And you know. I it just all these feelings about photography and loss. Let's say i don't know all came together. And i just knew that this is the direction i wanted to go. Yeah yeah and it's a good direction. It's the world photography from my standpoint on of you agree with this but it's it's equal parts. Geeky ray is we like the technology and all that stuff and then it psychology you when you're dealing with the public and trying to get the right shot or get the shot or permission to do the shot and the you know the all of this stuff in between psychology science physics wrapped up into the time machine that we call a camera to fast forward to now the president or the recent the recent present. Let's call it like this last this past five five or so years me decade your adventures in and around new york city. The i can't imagine being a street photographer. There for just an extended period of time when i'm there is overload. It's just like what. Do i take pictures of two months. It's too much going on you get analysis paralysis. What would have been some of the standout experiences you've had in city over the past decade or so that you like okay. I got to tell this bar story. Wow pick were got to pick one. I think defining Well this is. It's further back than ten years but sure for for the finding event was i was involved in a robbery and a camera store. And it's a long story but rather traumatic thing. Somebody was killed and and i got roughed up a little bit and it was it was. It wasn't pleasant. But it was. After that i i realized well putting yourself out there making yourself vulnerable and taking pictures strangers asking or you know. I don't think covertly taking pictures of people is for me. It's just not right so if you're going to ask or you're just going to be obvious bat it you've got to put yourself out and up until that point I didn't know what i was expecting to happen but After that i figured well. What's the worst that can happen. I already found out what the worst that can happen. And it really It helped me in. Maybe be taught me to be very aware of my surroundings almost in a comfortable way though. So that okay. Let's not ever forget. I've gone into situations where drug dealers on a corner. And i was taking a picture of this house that was closed and abandoned actually in patterson not beard city paterson new jersey which is really exciting. We've got a water tower waterfall. There you go and a crappy movie was made by. Jim jarmusch bad it. It lasts two years ago and any case so i am standing there taking pictures and You know. I hear this guy walking up to me and it was interesting because there were like three. Get two or three guys on each corner but not the corner i was on the house was and i'm i'm taking pictures and i hit. This guy comes up behind the camera up to my eye. And i can hear him. I'm aware of him and he said. Hey what are you doing. I told them flat out. I'm taking pictures of buildings that have been foreclosed on You know and properties that have been abandoned families that have gone kicked out. And what have you. And he goes off and you know then he goes How much do you think they want that house i should. Oh i don't know but whatever it is going to be pretty cheap
"jim jarmusch" Discussed on Reel Chronicles
"Nobody is technically kind of accommodate. Number five is dolemite. Eddie murphy nice. That's a good one. I enjoyed it. I thought his performance was excellent number. Four david 'push on earlier. Atanas johnson and michael jordan nice Yeah just as a rise and just from beginning to end of the movie. Yeah next Cynthia reveal so we will. Hi reba. reba you harry. I wasn't a fan of the movie but her performance. Skopje like when When she goes back and seat don't want anything and she's what she finds out what she finds out Like i'm like damn like i am. She gets me invested and my number one will smith like forget the mink actor's name in pursuit of happiness. Nice bogner chris garner. Thank you Just his struggle such a good movie and he just kills it. nice leo. what are you got So my number. Five is actually michael jordan as well but i went with fruitvale station. That's a hard one now. That's a hard movie to watch. Jc yeah i i watched this pretty I watched maybe like last year during everything everything started off and they just just kind of like educate myself and try to learn more about like the film and then like the back history of the film but Michael jordan as oscar grant was awesome. It was fantastic. It was it was very very mature performance for a young actor I just seeing his. It felt very denzel early in the way that denzel was able to malcolm x. Just mixing that that hard minority man type thing that you're supposed to supposed to be right. And then he just some moments of the sensitivity and and just in warm this but Yeah michael jordan's performance in brazil station. I thought was great direction with antastic too. But as where i picked him i put actually also went with pete on the ongo but i went with her performance. And that's a great one. Great when leo exactly what's funny i. I've always thought that. I always thought that it was one of those things like with with mark ruffalo being nominated for his role recently in that that dual dual role. Things was true. Yeah the tape. Who different characters in film and each of them was just riveting like you wanted to know more about what read you want to know and then when you found out the twist. It's like That that's that close up scene with here coming down just like incredible work but But i also yeah. I think after. I saw the movie. I'm like just has to win the oscar and then i think that came off really really early into that so like little by little. It started getting pushed to the back of the list back to the list. Unfortunately i didn't win anything. I never and leo's assorted cut you off. I'll never forget leaving that theater. And i'm like oh he's gonna do it again like he's gonna do it again. He's gonna get his pick. His picture nominated for best picture. And i thought lupita was a sure thing because and the reason i had confidence because get out came came out in february as well so marshals light regulatory winners. Yeah so i figured it would be especially repeater and then we were talking about rotation really for like five dollars. Level became off. I constantly had to say because michael be. Join us at birlik. I for oscar grant related. We used to say allow because revel and was was number ones. Oh so yes. So then. My number three actually. I went with the films that i actually listed as part of my movies co q. Junior and laurence fishburne in boys in the hood I think laurence fishburne performance is like underrated as far as how really like. He really gave a solid pinnacle pillar of like adult in that movie. Where he kind kinda gave off like this. Like twenty the role. He plays such a like a. It's not a not a very common role for any minority being latino or black but like a father that actually cares in. That's and i think. That's laurence fishburne fantastic in it trying to give as much as he could And that one scene where he educates about Jeff gentrification yes if it was me like it stayed with me as a young man watching the movie. I'm like oh there's so much more and my number two was denzel malcolm x. Pretty much. Just exactly what i mentioned earlier. What you is all like a agreed with like. It's just it's a very full performance and fantastic that the film was able to give it so much time But i still. My number one is still to pock to has done. Yeah it it was like you you. You glorify things being hard and being hood. And i just being on top of your game and then to puck gave it that like that tragedy like what happens when you're obsessed with that kind of lifestyle and what can happen to you and i just thought like for me. It was one of those lights throwing up and trying to be like that type of person It just stuck with me Number five and a half. Four twitter goes dog because when it comes to like mafia movies is like we never really see them up to have a black head. Mad and movie you know for for office goes cohen then. He's also like his philosophies very muslim in the quarter of the samarai analyze the black samurai. Like i feel as his best performance. I know you bud the but like urine christ out that dig it like jim jarmusch director for everybody but this is probably most assessable. Movie is like a very great. The very detailed and very complex performance from fourth quarter. Not many people tend to know all number ford's same as you guys have mentioned in lower springs burned. Boys would the o nailed. Everything had is like most time. You see like hood movies. It has to be the father decides him and pops a friday. You'll never really see like in movies like the the main these have like a of the father diva very abusive or absent. So the fact that you have a of like father is moving. This is like the densification speech is like. He's a father that wants better for his son. Like yeah he had tree a young age but he doesn't want his son like when he was when when they had the comments about twelve That's like a great conversation as like it was like a grapefruit freely the fact that the boys in the hood screen director. I felt like anybody asking. You should have been lost. Because the debt side panels wofford city. Sleeping's a book but largely nominates. The things a slap in the face of a movie of it all number three on. We'll be over the color purple jc. You're going to say ghosts. And i was going to hang on. This is like you know. Movies like produces like a whole black cast abbas like not forgiven oscars. I mean granted. Didn't win nothing which is crazy because that should one supporting actress for open and will be for like some evil. I think is the greatest performance from a comedian series role. And then it's one of the greatest before time to me is like maybe heartbreaking She carries it like she should have been the first like actress win. I for these. According moves lee performance was translated instantly to another woman should have one basket for was was that in the bassinet at was tina turner way. She embodied the character. Like when. I some like grandma as inner magmatic the dominated by but when i when i hear tina turner track i. I see agile. basil like earner on the late. she's like a grip woman. Alexandra basta very fit.
"jim jarmusch" Discussed on Whores Talk Horror
"This was just like maybe two months ago. it didn't land for me. It didn't want it to be more scared and seeing now again. Why i'm confused. About what horror is i mean. That was considered a horror film. Right like a scary movie. Yeah it. I kind of felt the same way. I thought it was a bit long. But i thought the general concept was really scary. Like if there was somebody that was a crazy stalker that had access to that kind of technology. The thought scared nothing and the beginning. It was very scary when she was like escaping. That house. yeah boyfriend. That was scary. But then i felt like it didn't live up to that i don't know end the guy who played the brother he's in my on my favorite. Tv shows patriot. He's the lead in. He's amazing But it didn't land for me. And i also i watched i watched. Jim jarmusch is zombie. Movie talk which was supposed to be funny anyway. More funny than scary but that one didn't land for me either. And i love his movies. Not all of them. I didn't deadman wasn't but some think are masterpieces. so. I've had a few disappointments lately. So i'm hoping these church me up on the horror watching these films for you for your challenge. Just gets me going well if you had to choose. Which kind of scary movie would you rather watch one about ghosts and the paranormal slasher film a monster movie about vampires or where will or maybe a psychological horror movie. Ghosts are scary. Well okay. here's a movie. That was scary for me. And i was at twenty eight days in twenty eight days. Later was Leeann murky yeah days later than twenty eight weeks later. That wants dick stuck in my brain and we might have talked about this last time. How many times. Okay does your. Here's the drinking game for this episode. Every time i say we might have talked about the mo- foes What was so scary about that. Was the fast zombies. I agree i mean. Zombies are scary but fast sambas. Oh my god you know kazombos numbering in. You're like well if there's just one thing could barely walk. You know what i mean. I think from it. If they're see now you see this on the walking dead if there several of them then it gets dangerous. 'cause they can knock you over. You know whatever but fast running zombies that was terrifying terrifying yeah aggressive and then them scavenging. I think about them now with cova and you know like when the when the supermarkets were bare and all that you know i think in that movie too because i remember them going into a grocery store and finding some things that they could have the drink sugar they crash. They weren't used to sugar and yeah crash liked their metabolism. Their body energy would crash. That's sense sagan. I was gonna answer to your question that you would prefer a monster movie or zombie.

Noah Baumbach Digs Into A 'Marriage Story'
"It's the opening scene in the film ahead of a screening of marriage story at the telluride film festival this year and in front of a live audience. I spoke with driver. Just after Martin Scorsese presented him with a career. Honor driver was at telluride for marriage story and another upcoming movie the report in which he plays a US Senate investigator looking into this as use of torture after nine. Eleven driver explain what his relationships are like with directors. He's worked with multiple times and that list includes Jim Jarmusch and marriage story. Filmmaker Noah Baumbach. There's there's something that we are way of working. Our work ethic is similar in that. They don't take it for granted that we're making a movie. The has the potential to reach a plays that as far away and either give language to a culture. That's completely different than ours. And someone's paying a lot of money for us to be here right right now for this amount of time to do this thing that will last forever and labeled the feeling and how powerful that is why why take that for granted why show up and kind of wing it you know or not. Consider what it is. You're saying and that no detail is too who small now. Obviously there's traps and all of that that you can get so worked up in details that you're trying to control everything and don't leave room for you know something. That's more abstract with those people. They're brilliant writers and create a set an environment onset where you're free to You know all those things that hope from from people you're free to get it wrong and you're free to explore and but really don't take it for granted if I was trying to summarize summarize it which is kind of hard. They very much curated the people that they want to work with in front and behind the camera and you feel like as much as everything thing is both has meaning and as meaningless. You don't don't take it for granted and finding people that have your same work ethic gets a rare thing. I think I just repeated myself three times the best show of hands. How many people in telluride for the atom driver double feature marriage story and the report? Wow okay. That's about half a house as quick question without spoiling either film. I WanNa ask you about Dan. Jones and CIA's post nine eleven detention and interrogation program which a lot of people would call torture. They call it extreme rendition of the things. What would you say about that film going into it without giving it away about why? That movie spoke. Oh Q.. And why you thought it was something you wanted to do. I mean the topic is was something that I you know embarrassing. They didn't know anything about and I mean the original report is over six thousand thousand pages. The redacted version is just over five hundred and our script with one hundred thirty. How do you how do you tell that story as economically as possible astle but not without leaving the humanity out of it so that all of those things just an opportunity to potentially bring a topic to light that has been in the dark and that I was inspired by you? Hope there's people like that in a room alone toiling away for six years with no support trying to trying to make a difference and that relationship with something that you've grown up with thinking that you can trust and suddenly you know you have to not only do you feel like you're trying to make a moral judgment for the country but internally as well they all those the reasons why I want to do it you were recently doing. Burn this and I'm wondering when you're doing it play and then going. Lean into film or television. What are the things that you might miss retain as an actor? WHO's doing a show in front of a different audience every night when you're not able oh to replicate that on a film set yeah? It's a totally different thing. It's I working with Mila. For example he likes to do a lot of takes and that actually feels more familiar to working on out of play because the lines of the lines. There's no there's no Improv. This is what it is blocking it out. But the intention can be a million different things and he he structured the day smartly so we have enough time to explore all the possibilities of what it could be not just arbitrarily but I mean sometimes and and then sometimes you have to rebel against him and then just do it the way you WanNa do it just to shock yourself and shock the system and then maybe come up with something better but you know it's like a whole run of a rehearsal truncated into a day. which is I rare with? Someone like Noah and you're also rehearsing you know if you can be as much as you can before you start just being prepared to give yourself time to explore all the options and when you don't do that with a soderbergh then I tend to have regret of like you can't help but go home and imagine I had all these ideas that now but then again. Maybe those were bad ideas that I don't know oh anything. The tribute is a sham. Last question I think there are a lot of things that different people will take away from marriage story one being. If you're thinking about going into family law you might reconsider it. But what was the thing that you treasure about making this film with knowing scarlet again. That could be a long answer that I know I should keep short. I mean this movie is hard to. I feel hard to talk about because it's very personal and it was personal. The people who made a collectively and we talked about it a couple of years before we started making those conversations tens of what it's about or what will retry into are still happening but how love can transition and how that can be violent set not not physically violent but an internal violent thing of you know someone kinetically where you know. It's everything your way. Oh you were in a room together a second nature then suddenly to divorce that from yourself That could be painful but maybe it's just transitioning into something different. I thought that was a beautiful idea. This is not a sham. Adam coming up on the frame the writer and director of marriage story Noah Baumbach on capturing the heartbreak of divorce Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn. Our next guest is filmmaker Noah Bam back he wrote and directed indie darlings like Margot at the wedding and the squid and the okay all his stories often feature realistic and flawed characters and it holds true for his latest film marriage. Story Charlie and Nicole played by Adam driver ever and Scarlett Johansson are a couple struggling with the early stages of their divorce bombeck painstakingly mapped out the process of their separation. And that makes watching watching marriage story. especially if you're married a bit like watching a horror film. Here's how bombeck described the movie when we recently spoke at the Middleburg Film Festival. I've a friend who said the movie gets divorced so you don't have to which I think is a nice message from married couples relatively Glib but I can see it Netflix has another movie. That's planet Middleburg called two popes. Your movie is called Marriage Story. They both seem like obvious. Titles but almost inevitable bowl. Did you play around with other things to call this. I didn't coordinate with Fernando Morass. I I It was it was the working title from the beginning. The the idea that I'd come up with something else but like pseudo you know Phil Collins but something about the movie resisted more more specific or poetic titles things like the squid and the whale. Didn't there was no squid in the whale to be found and so I I kept coming back to it. I liked it as its in. Its simplicity. I want to ask you a little bit. Because Adam drivers said that this was a collaborative process and hobbies. You're the writer the director. But how would you describe the process of putting the story together and before we started filming what you were talking to due. At least you're actors about it from the onset. It was important for me to know who the actors who are some of the actors were in the movie. I wanted To Have Charleena Nicole in my head is inspiration but also because I wanted to bring the actors in to the process a bit I Adam. I've I've been friends with now. When so when I brought him sort of some of these ideas he would say like? Oh these are things I might. He he was interested in playing a theater director. That's you know as I remember it. That's how that came into the movie. You have often had characters who you are very articulate. That could be writers. They could be theater directors that could be. They are very capable expressing themselves and talking about. Maybe maybe what they're feeling or what they're feeling about somebody else. Is that something that you think is a pattern. That you like articulate characters who happen to have particular jobs does one beget the other. I don't know I I don't think about it like that. Quite the artistic the fact that they were artists and and creative and professional partners in this movie was I thought important and also narrative interesting because there was sort of more at stake.

Summer Movie Preview
"The movies of summer twenty nineteen. What is out there? What's going to happen? And I've got to start by saying you think maybe that summer begins on your calendar near the end of June. But not in Hollywood everything in Hollywood begins early because summer is when they make all the money that they can make all year. So officially April twenty six it's the beginning of summer because the movie that opens on that day is called a ventures endgame. This is three hours long. Nobody's gonna care. I predict that not only will this be the biggest box office hit of the summer, but it will be the biggest box office hit of the year. You remember what happened last time all the ventures or at least half of them seem to turn to dust than die mean? Now have those ventures that are left to signing if they can beat the evil fan. He so evil will the adventures be wiped out forever. Look how much money did these movies make I'm saying why would you basically kill the golden goose? This is going to continue in some way, we all know it. So what else is out there? I'm looking at my list. There's a major thing going on now of in terms of taking the Disney slash Pixar animated classics and turning them into live action movies. So we have The Lion King line king. One of the most successful Disney animated movies ever is now being done as a live action movie. You have Donald Glover being Simba. You have James Earl Jones actually being this father and the same scores. They're the same using. And it's directed by John Fabbro who did such a great job with the jungle book doing the same thing that I think we can all feel optimistic about what's going to happen. And then we have Aladdin when we remember the. Animated movie who do we remember the most? We remember Robin Williams doing the voice of the genie. This time doing the voice of the genie and being the genie. We have Will Smith. So big stars in this big kind of thing, they tried it with Dumbo earlier this year, and that didn't quite work the way they wanted to do. But we're talking about lying king and the Ladan so big deal. Now, what terms of old fashioned animation is out there. I don't know if you're like me. But there's a Toy Story four toy stories always been my favorite of those Pixar. There's something about Woody and buzz light year, and you're probably saying to yourself. Well, and Toy Story three didn't it happen. That would he said goodbye, Andy. And he went to college, and it was all over remember. There was little Bonnie Andy gave his toys too. So we're going to have little Bo peep comeback. I think when you look at what goes on in Toy Story, you have that kind of feeling of goodness of field. Goodness, but done with all the magic of Pixar. So if those adventures out there are going to have a run for their box office money. I would say Toy Story. Four is going to be the one that does it. So what else we now have men in black men in black international? You're not gonna see Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones anymore. But this time you have Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. As new agents who are out there in this men in black universe. Sometimes you say to yourself do I want more of that? And you never know to actually see it. And I can only tell because I haven't seen this movie yet. But it looks like there's chemistry there. Then we have Spiderman far from home. You know, the Spiderman franchise never seems to end either. But we have Tom Holland who played him last time charmingly, I think, but now spider man, Peter Parker. They're taking a European vacation and the villain that they run up against is mysterious. Played by Jake Jilin. All I just think they're still some special sauce in the Spiderman universe, and I expect this one to also be a major hit. Godzilla Godzilla king of the monsters. I see that. And I go how much can they work this poor God's, but you can look at the trailer and see it. I like the idea that aside from viewer for Megan who is in it, Billy Bobby Brown from stranger things is in its she the dynamo. So if God Zillah can basically meet his match betting on little Millie to do something with that Hobbes and Shaw, this is fast and the furious you remember the rock of playing the the law man, and Jason stefon playing the outcast and the rebel these guys. I don't know if this is Hollywood kind of thing, but they tell us that Jason stadium and the rocked wing Johnson. Don't really like each other. And maybe that what the reason we love these characters and show so much because we liked that conflict. I don't know it seems a PR stunt to me, but I'm going to be there because this cars. There's the rock and their Stefa. So you're going to be there to and you know, it, oh and the big deal. Now, everybody has just in the midst of welcoming game of thrones back to their lives. The last season of that. You can't bear to live in a world where you can't see the stark sisters anymore. Well, now, you can dark Phoenix, which is part of the X men universe. Bring Sophie Turner, and she's Jean grey this character that we've seen before. But she's this younger version of her and she split between the good side of her and the dark Phoenix side of her. And to me, these girls are tremendously talented in what they do on game of thrones. And I think we're going to keep seeing them through the years, but her sister her at least game of thrones sister, maisy Williams is in new mutants part of that universe too. But in this case, they're all new characters to do this. They're all gonna be in the X men universe. Doing it. So that's it for the blockbusters that are out there. You've got everything from animation to comic book characters to everything. And that's the stuff that you hear about that your friends are going to talk to you about. But there's gotta be other stuff to part of summer is comedy of. I think we all really have gone through a long winter. And we're saying make us laugh give us something that will just make say, whatever. I can just sit back and not think. So what's there for that? There's a movie called longshot. This is a movie in which Charlotte Theran is playing the secretary of state who is running for president. But falling Manley in love with who staff throw in. Okay. It's like, a beauty and the beasts thing going on here. Seth Rogan is her speechwriter all of her people say what are you doing? You're going to destroy your career. But no, it's love. And if you don't laugh at the combination of Seth Rogan, Charlie staring. There's nothing left for you. And then we have the hustle. The hustle is a movie that used to be called dirty run scoundrels where the old days it was about conman. Now, it's con- women. They're played by Anne Hathaway and rebel Wilson. And they basically go all cross the continent finding rich people whose money they can steal pretty people. Glamour? What's wrong with that? Oh, book smart. This is directed by the actress Olivia Wilde, and it's about girls graduating from high school and saying we spent all our lives with our head in the books. Everybody else is going to parties and having fun. So they're going to do that beanie Feldstein plays one of them. She is the sister of Jonah hill and real life and Jona hill did super bad. This is kind of the women's version of super bad everything in it works, like a charm. You're really going to like that one. Then we have a movie called late night. This is about the TV talk show world and Emma Thompson plays. Probably the only woman on late night TV who hosts her own show, but she's got only men on her writing staff, and then she hires Mindy Kaeling who also wrote the screenplay of this movie, very very funny about what happens when you put women into what basically has been. A male bass they end of doing this. And the combination of Mindy king writing for the great Emma Thompson and watching them perform together is just so you've got to see that one to my favorite kind of thing. The dead. Don't die. You've got to admit that is a great and funny title. It comes from the indie, directing great, Jim Jarmusch. And it's cut people like Bill Murray and Adam driver by zombies. Okay. If Bill Murray is going to go out there and get laughs. Sizing up zombies. I'm going to be there watching him do it. So we have a good chance for laughs horror. I've got to talk about it now because it's not just the Cajun. Oh movie harm movie that makes money any makes people talk and get happy. It's they're everywhere. Now child's play do you? Remember the old child's play movies where you had Chucky. The crazy nut doll that. Always terrified me. Just. This doll who looks kind of little bit weird and freckly, but he has a voice on him like a longshoreman guess who's doing the west now of Chucky Marquel? Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker. And from what I've seen of it in. It's just been a little bit of it. It's wonderfully malevolent, so I'm going to be there to see that one. Then there's Annabel comes home. Another doll another possess doll also part of the conjuring universe where a viewer for Megan Patrick Wilson. Or the demon knowledge is that tried to make sure that nothing bad can come of this horrible doll Annabelle, but Bill will destroy and I will be there to watch her. Do it then them that follow their certain titles that get me them that follow really gets me? And it's about a snake handling church in Appalachia. No, they there are there colts. And they're almost religious cult where people pray. But they have the snakes, and they hold the life thinks pass them on. And you're thinking, what are you tell me about this like CD movie Har movie will guess who the star of this movie is the freshly minted Oscar winner Ogilby Coleman from the favourite, she's tossing those snakes around so irresistible. I think you're gonna love it. Then there's the Nightingale. See it's does not stop. It's har- everywhere. The night and gas from the director, Jennifer Kent who did a thing a couple of years ago called the baba Duke, which gave millions of people nightmares. And now she's back there following a woman who is chasing a convict got to be hooked. And then midsummer midsummer directed by REI Astor who last year gave us hereditary with Toni Collette, a really scary movie. Now, it's at a nine day Swedish holiday where everybody celebrates. But they'll be no celebrating after this one. So we. Got a lot of stuff out there. That's just going to scare us witless. And I couldn't be happier. All right. When summer comes. We think of all the things I've just talked to you about blockbusters comedy horror action, the rock of everything is there, but every even in a season like this. It's all about money and getting us into our theater, there are those movies that can come out entertain us. And also will hear about them at the end of the year when the Oscar nominations come out and the number one movie on that list, and the one that I haven't seen anything of India's of anyone that saw even anything past the trailer is called once upon a time in Hollywood it is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino its stars in order to Capri, oh as a TV star on the wane in Los Angeles. And Brad Pitt as his stunt double whoever thought of
