Billionaire playboy smirk on his face rapid fire dialogue watch him in gone with the wind again now one of my favorite movies. Tell is Clark Gable? I will submit to you, the misfits, and you tell me if he's tougher. None an aging cowboy at the end of his career. He's toughest nails in that movie. Cimarron tough Onasa mogambo toughest nails in that movie. He is a tough, dude. Clark gable? And he's been through it all and he would have that twinkle in his either ironman has. All right. Go ahead, captain America. Yeah. Robert Redford, who nice choices. Yeah. I mean, I think it was kind of perfect it. He ended up in that franchise anyways. But yeah. Young Robert Redford with that twinkle in his online. They're kind of like, you know, good goody two shoes. American. I like it. I would have I chose Paul Newman. And I like I was thinking Paul Newman too. Yeah. I think we're right on the same page there. Well, with Paul Newman most, you know, with Robert Redford, he has tackled some political things in his movie three days of Condor the candidate that are question. What we've been presented in our society, captain America through the trilogy does that especially in winter soldier. So I think Paul Newman consistently does it through all his films, and I think he would have the right to plus you could see him wearing the captain America thing and trees out of jail in America. Right. And then also questioning what America's doing with that intelligence? Like, he does with Nick fury. I think he'd been great. It's cool hand Luke body that down the armor. Black widow Debra winger. I'm just kidding. That was all right. I'm gonna go with. Nineties bad ass. So Demi Moore. Oh, Demi would be a good black widow. Yup. I liked it. I guess I went a little older than you. I was trying to explore because a little bit tougher for me to go down there. But that's a nice choice. You're thinking more classic. Yeah. Classic. So I did say. They do. So when he mentioned a when I don't know Chelsea's a man or woman, so Chelsea could be the way. So they mentioned Jimmy Stewart, Katherine Hepburn Cary Grant. That's what my mindset was. So for me, I say black widow, Elizabeth Taylor. It would be very good in that blackout fed and also playing both sides we've seen her as she got older play roles like Butterfield eight and who's afraid of Virginia Woolf or she can play both sides hero and villain quite effortlessly in the same movie. I like the Demi Moore can kind of be like a seductress also like a bad ass. Lookie son G I, Jane. I don't know how she do with like a Russian accent. If she's ever she kind of needs one. Yeah. I mean, right. It's it's Russian is. I don't know if she ever did a Russian exit but Scott announced yesterday I like where we're at. So I have cruised Redford Demi Moore, and you have Paul Newman Clark Gable? And Elizabeth Taylor. Okay. Okay. Pretty a pretty strong selectors herself back in the hall. Who do you have for home? I have Robert Redford has the hulk. Wow. So you have Redford on your vendors squad too. But not as cap. Okay. Oh, he he could wear the glass hall. So he'd be the scientists can see him really turns up and getting angry. He'd be like AB such new wants thing. Look, Mark Ruffalo is meek as they come. When you see them in most movies. All of a sudden, he's the hulk Robert Redford, Ken play the intelligence, scientists aspect of banner, and then have issues with his anger. If you've seen him if you watch three days of the Condor pretty vicious to Faye. Dunaway in certain scenes, you could see him hawking out and get angry. I just see I guess. Because to me, Robert, Redford. It's like the nice old man at Sundance. Yeah. I can't see him hulking out. But okay. All right. My friend. This might be a little might be a little bit tougher for him to to play Bruce banner. But Michael Clarke Duncan, I think him as the hulk is like this kind of like sensitive scientists who is just like gigantic battle be so cool to me if only he was with he could play the hulk then you'd have to have someone played Bruce banner, right? He would play Bruce. He would just be like a big scientist doesn't look like a scientist from the outside. But like, you know, okay. That's why he would sort of soom hulk form who do you have four four are think of a guy. He's got to be like blonde and beautiful and have this great, man. And be chiseled. So I went with Patrick Swayze. Oh interests hachik Swayze store. That's right. I like it. I went with Vincent an offering on ventures in babysitting. I went with Marlon Brando your man, you're really going deep come on Marlon Brando as the hulk would be I mean as Thor would be incredible. You could see him with the long hair, and the chiseled physique kind of carry on the hammer. I cannot Big Sur Brando's Thor. What's beyond? Have you seen your car named desire? He is like sexy strong muscular guy in that movie. And in frigging on the waterfront, he's more of a slower guy. But he's still driven by immoral in principle, all of that as a four would be very interesting. And if you throw in who I'm gonna throw in the low-key that chemistry Ziv, I only did those find it. Okay. Well, let me throw I got Hawkeye Steve McQueen Hawkeye that'd be a bad as seen him flinging. Arrows, and I and I think that would be the hall guy be would like more than the Jeremy Renner Hawkeye who gets a lot of flack from the fans. Steve McQueen Hawkeye would be interesting. I went James Dean for ant, man. And my last one was oh, no my last two LOKI as you'll Brenner as LOKI would be very interesting. Do I've come to rule. You manned Lee Marvin data's man. I don't know how old are audiences. But if they know half, these people the impressed. Well, you know, Joe Venice is good. I like that. Yeah. He'd be greatly mamas. And all right. Let's move on to our next question. At least you don't have any more. What's our next one there? Jeff. All right. You can recover in time. It is an Email from Fred Custodio rights. Hey, clatter mail bag. I recently saw captain marvel twice and liked it more the second time than the first. My question to you is what is the best movie you've seen that you like better the more. You saw Maynas dogma which became my favorite movie of all time. Thanks for taking my Email and have a great day. Fred c dogmas your favorite movie of all time wild, man. I have three watchmen have already said on numerous programs. How I I've loved the director's cut, and I watch now incessantly whenever it's on TV. Or if I'm in the mood. I'll put it on not the original called the director's cut. I've learned to appreciate that. Phil more more of the years anchorman is one that got better as I watched it more and more. But probably the big lebowski is the number one thing when I walked out of the big lebowski. Okay. I get it. It's funny. It's not until I washed it over and over and over again that I really got what the Coen brothers were going for and understood the humor and enjoy the performances and really got what overall what the film was trying to do. And I've learned to appreciate that film. So much of a less likely. I think you're I'm with you on anchorman and big lebowski. Those are probably movies that I didn't maybe a little too young. When I first saw them. Not not. So with anchorman is definitely too young. When I saw big lebowski and some of the stuff sailed over my head, right more. I watch out that are anyways. Mine I think comedies are like that though minds a comedy too. I wanna see if you if you get it just from the quotes. Okay. All right. Oh, Philly so cable guy cable guy, right? The cable guy is my movie I loved I really like the cable guy when I first saw because it's like, you know, I think I was twelve years, right? Ace Ventura dumb and dumber. Like it was wacky. Jim carey. And then this was just like a different sign of Jim Carey that I didn't necessarily like, but the more that I watched the cable guy, I've come to appreciate its brilliance, and what it's saying just about like television, entertainment and friendship and just I don't know. There's a lot of stuff that I think holds up really well in that movie, particularly Jim Carrey's performance. It's prescient on a lot of issues dealing with. Now, you know when reality TV local reality TV president like it's my blowing. When you look at Cape rewatch, cable guy and see how many things Ben Stiller was kind of talking about or foreshadowing that was going to happen in our world entertainment in our technology, and how it was going to change us. It's really interesting and by the way, shadow to Ben Stiller being on the Bill Simmons podcast recently. I don't know. If you've listened that episode yet. Let's do it on the way in this morning. He just dropped at this morning as we're recording this, and it's a fantastic episodes. If you want to. Something a great interview with Ben Stiller go and the stood at the bills until this last one, and it's an Email from Jason Georgia's Howdy, outlaw writes a trend. I've noticed recently is several directors who are known for their work in horror have made the jump over to big blockbusters, particularly superhero movies. Some examples of Scott, Dirksen with doctor strange Dave is f- Sandberg James won- with aquaman and Neil Marshall now withheld twenty nineteen which director known for their horror films. Would you like to see make a superhero movie in which hero? Would you? Choose personally. I think Mike Flanagan who did a haunting a hill house and Gerald's game. Could have a great take moon. Knight a hero who suffers from dissociate identity disorder. Thanks for taking my question. Regards jas. All right. What you've got right. Is guys who've worked in in horror who I wanna see directing a superhero moving. All right. I think like, you know, Adam wind guard. Is someone who has obviously been getting bigger and bigger budgets to work with from death note at Netflix. He's doing that got Dylan movie. Yes. So I I could see Warner Brothers. If that Godzilla movie goes, well, I could see them giving him, you know, something in the DC universe. That's although we may have already turned stuff down. I'm curious about this director of bright burn, which looks like a superhero movie of sorts, but like a horror movie, technically like could this guy become the next James Gunn who know becomes a horror movie director? But then, you know, the one that I'll say even though I wasn't really a big fan of us, which I still encourage all of you to see and let me know what you think Jordan Peele. Okay. Jordan Peele doing a superhero movie. I think would be really interesting. I think that he he showed his skill for like shot composition in and. Yeah. With the right script. I think they're elements to peale's work that would. Early. You know, do well, you know, within the superhero, John. Yeah. All right. I like did idea of Karyn Kusama who just invitation to destroyer I like her getting involved in some way. Because black widow is nice. Captain marvel is these are wonder woman, but there are some darker female heroes in the superhero universe. And I think getting a female horror movie director to glass onto some of these heroes and explore their darker stories would be very interesting and black widow does have a darker store. But when you catch Scarlett Johansson, I think you're only going to go so deep into that and into the darkness of it. All I think there's a lot of superheroes that you can explore him Coosa my. When you look at when you look at the Justice like black canary has got an interesting story behind her. If you look at the X men Cilacap has interesting stuff going on with her. If you explore even more, I know the dark Phoenix thing has been done already with Jean grey. But can you imagine if it had been done with a horror movie director, there would have been more to explore there? You can go through a plenty of lists of superheroes. Who have darker edge to them darker vibe to them? And I think Karen Koussa could bring that out. And that would be a lot of fun to see do you have any? Do you have any superheroes yourself that you would love to see come to the screen offhand? No, not really, there's not you, Jim. I know Jeffey big fan. I mean, I I love saga. Yeah. Sagas gazing Dennis's wearing a lion can't shirt today in the office. I just wanna talk it off of Dennis. I always want to tear demonstra shirt off. Anyways. I think that's it. If you did a cat woman with Karen Coosa, Ma that could be interesting as well with what she confronts in the Gotham universe, and the things and imagine a Karyn Kusama Harley Quinn solo movie that would be a lot of fun. Would you know, they got this other female director, Kathy right for birds of prey, right? But let's Sola one would be interesting. Why these these were awesome questions I want to thank everybody for sending those questions in and one thing Jeff Snyder for taking the time to stop by Jeff where can people find you my friend at the instigator on Twitter on Instagram and uncanny? That's right. He's a I need to get on that. I keep getting those notifications for like two months, I need to get on you need to play basketball to on Saturday. True. True. Well this weekend.

"Singing to Snow White? So many questions here. This was nine hundred eighty nine and that's no excuse. But yeah, exactly. That's what happened the last time that they didn't have a host. He was just one of many celebrities that they brought up on stage. And he was theoretically, entertaining the audience at that point, the the problem is that host monologues. Take at least ten minutes, usually, right? And they this way they don't have to give them that. They don't have to give him something to do every twenty minutes thereafter, and it's easy enough to have the celebs just come out and announce things the problem is that hosts have big followings, right? And originally they were thinking they would have the rock Dwayne Johnson to do this. He's the highest paid most popular actor in movies right now, but he's making movies, and he didn't have time for all the press wanna talk about another issue diversity. This is often talked about the Oscars in terms of the nominations things. Like that now maybe because Roma and Black Panther in the mix. We're not hearing about. It has much this year. Does that mean that the numbers have improved? Well, some of them have it's not twenty white actors this year. So that's better Spike Lee is in the mix for for best director as is off onto Koran who's Hispanic. There's a foreign film director Pavel Pavlovsky, the polish director of Cold War. That category though, is problematic. I think because this has been a great year for women directors. The most powerful film. I saw in two thousand eighteen was directed by a woman Copernican directed by Nadine lebowski. And I they're not mentioned in there at all. There are no women directors in that category in theory, there should be long. Well, let's talk about some of the others. That would have been some of the best women directed movies this year. Well, leave no trace is extraordinary. It was directed by Debra Granik. It's one hundred percent on rotten tomatoes. It's just an amazing picture. I really liked the writer by khloe Zhao. Both of those were in my ten best lists destroyer by Karyn Kusama, and there's a. Movie that got it got a bunch of other nominations, which is can you ever forgive me? It got a Oscar nomination for best. Actress for Melissa McCarthy. Best supporting actor for Richard E grant, Nicole hall of center got a screenplay nomination. But they didn't nominate the director who pulls all that together. I mean, let's listen to a clip you'll hear why this film is nominated you friends with them. Julius. Yeah. Nations anymore. She died. She did. Maybe she didn't die. Maybe she just moved back to the suburbs. Those confused as to that's right. She got married had twins that died. Indeed, Marielle Heller is responsible for that. So is there anything you can point to that's gone, well run up to this era moaning, well, the one thing really went, well, which is that the nominations. This year included a bunch of big pictures pictures that people really like Black Panther star is born bohemian rhapsody. Otherwise known as box office hits. All this monster, huge they made hundreds of millions of dollars and in theory. They give people a rooting interest in the Oscars, and that should improve the viewership, by writes, this should be very well viewed Oscar ceremony, despite all the hassles. That's NPR. Movie critic Bob Mondello, thanks for explaining it to us. It's great to be here. The Los Angeles region was watching something else yesterday. And it didn't come from the screen. It came from the sky a lot of people like Elena shatkin captured it for social media. Okay.

"Brought many genre. Filmmakers, many millions of dollars. All of the world's Shane blacks. And max Landis is and Quentin. Tarantino have have made squad gillians on making genre movie that has well executed cuteness in it and people were really mad at her about the time. Yeah. Was almost as if the message was no you. Don't get to speak from your own made up voice. You have to speak by my roles. We'll why why did that why does Diablo have to speak from anybody's rules, but her own and the fact that she was so defiantly saying, Nope. This is just how I do it. You know, love it or leave it it pissed people off, and it was really interesting because writer so rarely have being married to one and loving the experience as a filmmaker with working with screenwriters writer, so rarely get the opportunity to be acknowledged as creators, and yet they are indisputably the creators of so much of what we consume in storytelling. And it's almost like there's a resentment baked in to the act of creating we just hate the fact that like a an actor doesn't say these words having thought of them themselves or a director doesn't show up on set. And just say, you know, what I think would be. A great, you know, second act curtain this. And so for DR blow to have staked out that territory where she actually got to be a creator with a with a voice that was that distinctive. It's almost like it's almost like it made people fear. Yes. And I now see I I'm now I now have a really different kind of reaction to like the loudness in culture because I have to question the volume itself. Like, I have to wonder what what is this about what what's actually underneath all of this because it tends to be so many carefully constructed messages that if I really like look more carefully. I'm like, oh, I just fell for that. Like everybody else we're out of time. But I'm so grateful that you came to be around bullseye. Thank you very much. It was so great to. Talk to you. Thanks..

"It's just whether or not that the most nihilistic and toxic expression of that relationship gets gets voice. You know, it's like Megan FOX's images celebrity her image within transformers, which itself is Michael Bay's fantasy of female character in transformers. None of that is actually who Megan is or was. And so there were so many levels. I think of. Deep misunderstanding about. About how to frame this movie. I think what it was was that. There was like a failure to understand that the movie was more sophisticated then it's marketing materials, and that that's that's tricky and requires a lot of work, and the attitude I think at the time was well, look, you know, we have one of the best marketing teams in in the world, and we can make any piece of make money. And unfortunately for me, the the message implicit in that was even this one. When in fact, there could have been an opportunity to embrace. What actually did make it cool and interesting and funny and scary and worth watching and we're talking about and so there were so many levels where like things could have gone different way. And they just didn't so many steps in the process that were sort of the exact wrong thing happened each time. I think maybe also straight dudes Lakeway self are. Not as facile with the language of camp as other segments of the population might be though, it's funny because ironically to me, I look at the language of independence day and transformers and Pacific rim and like that's kind of camp. It's just it's it's just hope it's coded for men Thomas can Kate painting. I was just looking at where there's literally a like it's like a flyover by the by some fighter jets on a NASCAR arena with like fireworks exploding in the air. And like a bunch of American flags. As well. And they're all sparkling with the light of thousand Suns see for me. It's like if I were to become, you know, my own version of Thomas Kincaid, it might be that painting with like a young woman at the edge of lake like puking into it. So. So to give you a sense of like, you know, I'm all for, you know, a multitude of of of languages represented, you know, media languages represented, but I there's ways to tweak it, I think, you know, the other piece of that besides the way people were trying to deal with Meghan. Fox's celebrity at the time is that, you know, one of Diablo cody's, great qualities as a screenwriter is her cleverness, and that's a quality that has.

"Oh, it's funny to hear it that way. Divorced from images. Sorry. It's the best. We can do. We'll get there. Eventually. It would be a distraction when people are driving. Yeah. The hologram. So this was obviously like the the movie that when Diablo Cody who wrote it became the most famous screenwriter in Hollywood after writing Juno. This was what she wanted to do. This was her this was her peck. She's like, I I wanna make this movie. How did you end up attached to it? I had read the script and they hadn't found a directory yet. I know they were out to a couple of directors. And I just I laughed and cried it was like that kind of script for me. And I growing up I watched movies like heathers and an American werewolf in London, and the howling and these movies that had humor and Akon a whore component to them. And I just I just felt like this is so my wheelhouse. This is so where my seventeen year old self lives. And feels the most spoken to and I just felt like what made the script. So brilliant was that it really was about a very very dysfunctional friendship between two girls, and there was the alpha girl, and there was the not alpha girl, and as someone who is the not alpha girl, it it meant that. I could read this part of needy less Nikki and completely identify with her and understand the idea that you would want to protect your best friend who also is the person who torments you the most that's very female very specific. And might have some male parallel that I'm not you know as aligned to. But I just think there's something about that dysfunction that just like spoke to me. And then I just thought there is an opportunity for a lot of incredible images. And so I had put together this look book that I haven't I don't have a memory of having more fun pudding. This book together for me. It's a long process of. Like just sitting and looking at art books and looking at photography, and and just thinking about about images, and what excites me, and what speaks to me. And putting that together was just like, I don't know. It just like re energized me because I was at a I just made I finished this movie on flex that was considered a disaster. And it was just there's something about reading something. So exciting for me that I just went in there like kind of guns blazing and just said, you can hire whoever you want. But I'm the right person to direct. What were the images in the look book to remember, there's I have this book of horror films that really looked at a lot of the hammer horror films out of England. And there's just this supermodel, basically from the sixties. With blood dripping down her mouth and a kitten hanging out of it. So it's like it's almost like a Roddick, but disgusting and and just completely. Over the top. I, you know, like, how can you know, there's something about that. That just that kind of image was front and center in my in my look book to say, here's the tone. You know, because the the script was very clear. I mean, when when Jennifer polls, there's a point where Jennifer's like eating out of the chest cavity of guy, the, you know, the the star quarterback that she just seduced, and then murders, and they described his intestines as as sort of flying around like confetti, and or like party streamers. And I just remember thinking like woo, that's really horrible. And and horribly funny. And so that's what the the look book was communicating and then there was a process of me, you know, by showing everybody that and talking it through with them. I got the I got the movie eventually was there a point after you? Had made the film that you realized how much of people's reaction to the film was going to be about the that moments cultural relationship to Diablo, Cody and Megan FOX, the snow. Well, I think what I've come to realize is that the surface interpretation from for me at the time was oh this reveals the culture's relationship to Diop blow Cody and Megan FOX as the years progress. I realized this is always the relationship. We're going to have with powerful women..

"And that's like a classic bad dream. I mean, you know, that that is a bad dream, you know, that's the definition of a bad dream and yet it's it. So so you can watch something kind of take on the hallucinatory logic of a dream which in some ways by watching. It is posed to dreaming at yourself. I think gives me a little bit more control over the situation. So while I understand not watching horror films because you're afraid of them. I watched them because I'm afraid of them like I need to feel some control over the experience of my own terror, and it gives me some shape, and so in some ways, I see it as like this. Opportunity to. To safely investigate the horrors of our life as opposed to actually experience them, which is the bigger hor-. You know living living living here on earth. I think is kind of the bigger the bigger terror. You know, we've found our pool clover. I have a pretty I have a pretty dark way of looking at the world. And I so for me, and I don't mean to I I want to be a more hopeful optimistic person. But the fact is I don't I don't think we have a ton of reason for it. And so for me making movies that make sense of or attempt to say that the act of trying to make sense, regardless of your success in that endeavor is is some step toward the positive. That's about as much as I can hope for another thing about horror movies is that they are one of the only types of film that has majority or at least a plurality of its audience as young women. Often there though, though one though, I know the conventional wisdom is that many of its female characters are are terrorized and marginalized by their very female nece, and while that can be true some of our most successful horror films actually have women Fronton center, which I think distinguishes it from a lot of other onerous more with Carin Kusov after a quick break still to come. She'll talk to me about Jennifer's body. Very scary. Very funny movie, she.

"Stuck in really really heightened terrible situations, or in messes that feel extrordinary, but in fact, are an expression of how most people live which is day to day and fingernail by fingernail. And so for me, it's interesting to explore that and have the pleasure. Principle of movies. At work. I'm just I I love my art films. And I'll watch fanny and Alexander every single year for the rest of my life, and those movies are important to me, but I also need, and I would never say that a lot of those art films are not in many respects, deeply deeply pleasurable to me. But the idea that I could maybe reach people who I don't expect to communicate to with my movies. Not that it's the first goal. But it certainly a tertiary one to have people who aren't like me still say that movie spoke to me, and that just seems like that's the hope of what we do, you know, trying to communicate. Let's talk about horror for a second. I've not seen your heart films because I'm scared to watch them. Oh, because I'm scared of Harv movies there. You should see both of them. Okay. I don't often admit those gaps in my knowledge, but I am sincere in my being afraid to watch horror movies. I appreciate that. What are the what are the special things about a har- movie? That makes it compelling an exciting for you either. As viewer is a filmmaker. Well, as as both I would say, what first comes to mind is that horror movies are no matter what the plot is. And it can be many things, obviously, there's so many kinds of horror movies. They are speaking the language of dreams, and that allows for I think opportunities as viewer to see a story be told in in a different kind of way, and we still accept it. And as filmmaker there are ways than that. I can tell a story that are outside of what are the traditional conventions? And I think we can also really vote the power of literally the power of what happens in our dream life. You know there there's there's a. A sequence in Texas chainsaw massacre in in Toby Hooper's original, which I think is a masterpiece in which we watch woman run from one utterly terrifying situation to find safety, and we realized that she's just run straight back to her captors..

"Because we need we need to understand our own capacity for light and dark, and and if and if we keep making some assumption that women's capacity for darkness doesn't exist than than that sort of an assumption that just contributes to our own complicity in our dehumanisation, do, you know? And so for me, I am a couple of things I'm I'm I was about to say the words literally advancing age, which makes it sound. Like, I'm you know, like marching to my grave. I'm not bad move. But what I really mean is just that like I've made some films. I've lived some life. And now I can't look at those vengeance films and answer to the eleven year old son that I'm raising with any dignity. I have to find a different way forward because I know that vengeance is emotionally satisfying. But kind of the way angel food cake is, you know, it's it's there, and then it's not there. There's no there there. And so for me, I felt like I needed to give the audience a sense of being grounded in a story that they might already know and peel back those layers to either encourage them to ask the question do they know these stories why do we think why do we have the expectations? We do with them. And what more could we see from them? And in fact, how can we expand the conversation? So having a woman. Occupying the central role was just as much function of the movie having to be a character study as anything else. But it also felt like the only reason for being in terms of making the movie was that she be this interesting woman, simply because of what you say we've we've seen we've seen men occupied this story at sometimes in some ways satisfying -ly, but in many respects unsatisfying Lee as far as I'm concerned. So I just felt like why not take a crack at something. I feel I know a little bit better, which is really dark complicated women about Johnny movies. I second made a lot of John movies. This is, you know, in in some ways, it's a subversion of a particular John it certainly exists within genre. And there are some like real bad ass parts. You know, there's a there's a big Bank heist in the middle with a lot of crazy exciting shooting and crazy masks that kind of thing what are the benefits of that John Robb for storytelling? Like, why why make this movie with a bunch of you know, intermittent? Brutal violent. Rather than simply make it as as, you know, like a woman who's in a and has to go from person to person making a man, I mean, and look, you know, what that movie sounds really interesting to me too. I guess it's just there's something about the movies. That are lodged in my imagination and lodged in my childhood that almost always ended up being dog day after noon taxi driver, Rosemary's, baby Klute, the parallel view, the French connection. You know, like these movies somehow felt like an American expression one actually sort of a kind of regional or, you know, a kind of filmmaking of a place in, you know, in this case, I would just say kind of an expression of this fascinating mess. We call the United States. And I feel like these were movies that spoke very profoundly to their times without ever directing the times themselves like without ever directing attention to them. And so for me, I guess I just feel like there's an opportunity with Sean films to invest them with ideas. You know, like a great example for me is a movie like alien that's a movie about trash collectors in space. It's about working people. And most Sean removes our I think they're really about regular people..

"Can be better than me. Karn? Kasama? Welcome to tebow's. I it's great having on the show. Thank you. It's so nice to be here that scene, actually. Looked like it was shot. I might be wrong. But it looked like it was shot like just up the street, two blocks. Bamboo in which is like restaurant here in West Lake in Los Angeles in our neighborhood that literally still has a sign outside the chop suey. Yep. Like a pure nineteen sixty experience completely unexpurgated. Yeah. It's an incredible. And that space is incredible. It hasn't been changed or updated and actually is more more beautiful and more moody and incredible for it. What were the things about Los Angeles that you wanted to capture both aesthetically and the medically. I, you know, I think people who don't live here assume that sunshine has a kind of joyous almost shallow quality. And for me when I walk outside every day. It's just almost a kind of dread every sunny day. I feel I mean, I feel a kind of relentlessness to the sunshine that feels punishing damaging scarring somehow apocalyptic, and I wanted to express that in a film, and in this case, it was the Mattingly tied into the idea of a character whose greatest adversaries herself and who leased wants to look closely at herself and yet feels exposed at every second. And how better to depict that then see her constantly sort of squinting into the sun? I mean, there's this quality. I, and I think to me it has something to do with the arid -ness of Los Angeles. Well, that while the heat is rarely extraordinary like it's it's often in the summer, and the, you know, the low nineties, but it's not the hottest place in the world. This isn't Phoenix Arizona, but there's something about that quality of relentlessness of and the sort of hot dryness that as you said kind of beats you. And that's that kind of physical toll of time and environment is almost a theme in the movie. Oh, yeah. And I think I want to say kind of physical and spiritual degradation. That is a theme in the film that that comes from a deprived Reese. Source center. That's both self generated in that. She she doesn't take care of herself. But then it's like she's in a place that you can feel the lack of water you can feel the lack of moisture you can feel that hot dry beating sun. And that's something to me that makes me think about you know, lizards, and and snakes and creatures that manage to become hardy in the most deprived environments, and yet we're afraid of them for and perhaps sometimes for good reason. And that's a bit of a mirror. I think to the main character of the film. There are a lot of movies about morally ambiguous protagonist, especially police officers who are wrong in some way. And they're out for Justice in they're trying to find. However, they can. And some of those movies are really good. I don't know. I really like John wick to where I think at the beginning. They kidnap is dog. And then the rest of it is just aesthetically stylized violence for ninety minutes. And then eventually gets his dog. Very high body count. Yeah. Exactly. But it's very beautiful way through all that. But it seems like you wanted to complicate that. And some of the biggest box office hits of the past ten or fifteen years, especially in the action movies revenge movies. There's this whole genre of dad's getting their daughters. Kitting asher. It seems like you wanted to complicate that. And and you didn't just want to complicate that by replacing a man with a woman that there was more that you wanted to complicate. Yeah. And I didn't want to replace a man with a woman. I I wanted a woman to stand kind of on her own within the role. I wanted us to question why we assume this is male space at all not just the notion of vengeance. But the idea of moral ambiguity, you know, when women aren't allowed to be morally ambiguous or even monstrous, it's a disservice to all of humanity in my opinion..
