Life Imitates Art With 'Wag the Dog'
"Everybody needs to go back and rent the 1997 classic movie wag the dog. In it Robert De Niro plays a political consultant who gets called in by a president who's been caught having sex with a campfire girl in The White House. So in order to the election is in two weeks, in order to distract people, they make up a fake war with Albania and then they film the war and they have Kirsten Dunst and they dress her up as a peasant running with a bag of Cheetos, but later they Photoshop it to be her doll. And they just, they manufacture this crisis out of thin air. That is exactly what they did with COVID. It's what they did with George Floyd. It's what they did with Jussie Smollett with Russia collusion, it's what they're doing now with the Ukraine and I guarantee you if that tragic war ends tomorrow, the very next day, we're going to learn that systemic racism lies behind putting things in alphabetical order. And that using alphabetical order is a continuation of slavery and it was invented by a slaveholders conspiracy and the Catholic Church is tied up in it and we all have to repent using alphabetical order. Now, you think I'm kidding. I just took that from a real headline that said that the Dewey decimal system is systemically racist.

"So you're unconscious mind is giving you the keys of your character's experiences. But yeah, she works with so many amazing young actors. She's just, yeah. But yeah, just her method of is very nurturing. You know, I think a lot of acting some acting is so like, you know, people yelling at you, you know what I mean? That's screaming at you. That's a whole other kind of method. Which doesn't work well with me. I think I shut down. But I remember acting classes like that where I was just getting yelled at. How does that help anyone try and expose themselves just people trying to scare the shit out of you? Well, you know, it's just a year after all good things, your first one back, then you were with Lars ventre in melancholia, which again is one of these ones that it's at the very top of the list of stuff that when people think of your great performances, I think. And I read that as Paul Thomas Anderson and susannah beer who were the ones that advocated for you, but I can't figure out how did you just know them socially? Or had you worked with them in some way that I don't know about before? I only knew that Paul Thomas Anderson recommended me to Lars and I had met him before, but I think, you know, he probably just knew I had it in me and I haven't had the opportunity to get a role where I could show that. So well and it's interesting because here you are as we've just talked about coming out of this kind of dark period that you had gone through. Lars, I guess talked about generally and certainly to you that he'd been through stuff. And now you're being asked to play just to remind or familiarize listeners. I mean, this is a woman who on her wedding day feels literally like the feels like the world is coming to an end. And I guess I wonder was there any particular sort of direction or anything that where you were able or were you able to just kind of draw upon experiences that you or Lars may have had in order to kind of create that character? Well, immediately, I think the best directors immediately are vulnerable with you. And we went to dinner and he explained to me, you know, a lot about his own mental health and so I knew I was playing Lars all of his he always has women playing him, you know? And so I felt very safe immediately. And.

"You did how to lose Friends and alienate people in 2008. And then there was this period, I guess you're now in your mid to late 20s where you kind of dropped off the radar for, I don't know, about two years before you came back with all good things in 2010. And I know that, again, this is a period where it was all kinds of misreporting people were assuming that you're like a lot of young stars who are very famous maybe we're having substance abuse issues or whatever. You eventually clarified it that no, it's a much more common thing that you had been dealing with depression and other stuff that, again, extremely common. But take me into that period because I do wonder if there was an element of this where you were perhaps disillusioned with how things were going. And I wonder if when you decided to then actively made the active decision to come back was that kind of taking ownership of all right, I'm now an actor because I choose to be not because this was the path that I was sort of set on by a bunch of events that I ultimately who knows how much say I had in it when I was a little kid. Yeah, listen, there's a reason why a lot of artists at 27 like something happens. It's your brain changes. Just fundamentally. But I think that there was just a way I was doing things that didn't work anymore. And my body physically stopped me, you know? And, you know, you can get the best help or get these recommendations, but if you're not, really, if you're not in the right hands or mental state, I think those two things, those things together can not always work. So you kind of have to figure out your path to kind of get clarity again and get out of the get out of the haze of it all..

"With my mom. In the valley. So again, I wasn't. I didn't take this fame and money and start doing all this crazy stuff. I just was, you know, that was that. And I had my Friends were the most important thing. My Friends from high school and stuff, and they were going to college, so I think I started to just have more independence and things like that. But I just, yeah, I remember visiting my friends at college, really, and missing them. But I mean the paparazzi would take my picture more and things like that. That was kind of the start of that. But it also wasn't where it is now, which is really just like we need content online all the time. It was more like the weekly magazine and it wasn't really anything. Yeah, I guess the Internet was not fully blooming yet with that kind of stuff. So I wasn't put in a position where I didn't feel like still I was just living a pretty normal life. Right. I'm aside from it, yeah. Now, something we did not really talk about as much in those days, but we certainly do now is the idea of pay equity. You have said that those three movies, I mean, it was you and Toby, toe to toe. Granted, it's called Spider-Man, but I mean, there's no Spider-Man without Mary Jane, as we've seen through two other incarnations of this of this franchise since then. But what was your awareness of that at the time? I was aware I honestly I didn't really think about it at first at all. It was just like, oh yeah, he's Spider-Man. But then I only thought about it on the second movie 'cause they used my face and then Spider-Man on the cover of the posters everywhere. And I was like, well, Toby's not even on this poster..

"But in the middle of that project, is also I believe when the first kind of rumblings of the possibility of Spider-Man came about. So can you take me back to just that moment where suddenly you're going to go to catch me, I was not a giant movie, but here you are with the I believe in the middle of making it where the prospect of doing something that's going to take your life and career in a very to a whole different level of exposure and fame and all of that, just take me back to that. Okay, so I remember a long time ago I was working on crazy beautiful actually at the time when I first met Sam. And I think that, you know, I don't know it was like such a long casting process, but I remember just wanting to be a part of this so badly. I loved the fact that he had cast Toby, who was also an independently spirited actor and his choices and the way Sam wanted to tell the story. I was just really moved and also, yeah, I wanted to be part of a big fun movie. I hadn't done one in a while and it just, I just really felt it in my heart and soul that I wanted to be a part of this badly. And then yeah, I remember my friend Ben foster actually was like, I remember reading the cats me and I was like, should I go do this movie? He's like, yes, you should work with Peter park donner. She's like, okay, so yeah, I'm in Berlin, and at Tobey was driving down sunset boulevard and I was on a gap. You used to do this big gap billboard on sunset and he saw me and was like, what about Kirsten Dunst for this movie for Spider-Man and so they all flew out to screen test me? The producer, Sam, Toby, like, all flew out. We did it in a hotel room, or a conference room. And I was so I was so nervous before I went into my audition, but I just remember when we worked together, it was like, exactly what you want from chemistry and acting and it just felt right. As soon as I left the room, I was like, I got this. I just felt it. I knew it. I was like, I did it. And then I remember I left remember when we used to have these big ass CD cases with my hundred CDs that we just carry around. So I left out there and then I knocked on the door and I was I felt like so relieved I had nailed it. And I was like, hi, sorry. I left my CD case. So I remember I got my little CDKs and I could just tell on their faces. I didn't mean to leave a CDK, but I could tell that they were almost relieved and overjoyed too, that okay, we found our Mary Jane, you know? Now that we should just remind people so the movie comes out in 2002 exactly 20 years ago and that was the beginning of there weren't people can forget the order of events. That was the beginning of this whole superhero dominated century that we really live in. Yeah, I mean, there have been a couple of Batman stuff and whatever, but this was a new chapter of movies. Was it your sense?.

"Mean in that way, but I think for me as an actress, I think some of my favorite performances though, it's like everything that happens in the private moments of people or always some of my favorite in film. I mean all the, yeah, all the movies that I loved growing up or when I first discovered what it is to be like, what kind of acting do I like? What kind of movies do I like? 'cause I'm learning that as I'm doing it. So watching, you know, a movie like, let's say like three women, you know, or like picnic, hanging rock or these movies that clearly influence, you know, Sophia, but I hadn't watched those movies yet. You know what I mean? So it was like a weird or like a persona, which kind of is very much like melancholia, which I watched for the first time, I think, kind of probably yeah, I watched it before filming melancholy, but these films about women and their psychological what's going on in psychologically have always been my favorite because I like, yeah, I like movies about things like that. So yeah, at the same time, though, again, to come back to the idea of range to be able to do those kinds of things, but then also do a movie that your own contemporaries want to go and flock to, like, bring it on, which was the year after virgin suicides and all those other 1999 projects. That is, did you guys ever imagine that would be so popular? This is, of course, you're this head of the cheerleading squad, but it's a deeper movie. There's an assumption that a movie like that's just fluff. But I mean, on another level, you guys are talking about race and privilege and whatever, but it's just an interesting performance and a story and it actually was very popular and remains very popular. Yeah, that was a complete surprise to us..

"It's like, okay, you know, you're done with this scene, getting to school. I mean, that's just the worst as a child. I can only imagine. And so those were both 94, then 95 is Jumanji. You and some other kids with Robin Williams. And in fact, that's the first time I think I remember going to the movies and seeing you. I don't think I would have necessarily gone as a kid to go see interview with the vampire or little lemon. But I guess for you, I'm wondering as to have a bang bang bang of those three movies within it could even be in terms of the release dates within a within a period of a year, something around that, you were in a situation that very few other child actors would have been in at that moment. And I wonder, in fact, I had read that there was some kind of an interaction with another kid at the oakwood who didn't even know that you were Kirsten Dunst and said something about that, right? Yes, the day after I got in your Ruth a vampire, I think I was walking to their little convenience store and I don't know, maybe these kids are talking and started talking to me and then one of the little girls was like, oh, my agent said that I'm the next Kirsten Dunst and you know I just I don't think I said anything. I was just, you know, I knew better, listen, I grew up going to New York on a to auditions in the 80s. You know what I mean? I knew when to shut my mouth and walk away. I didn't, you know, I grew up street smart so I wasn't I didn't indulge in things that I didn't feel like I needed to. So I just walked away. But I was going to say that I really had no conception. When you say this, that there was all in pretty much a calendar year. I didn't even realize that myself, Scott. I was so in my own world with my best friend Molly and my school, and then I'd go to work. And then I'd come back to my school, but I never, which is so good. I never worried about whether something was successful or not, or whether I was successful or not. I was just kind of doing my thing. And that wasn't even, I just was pretty innocently just doing my thing and not really worrying about anything else. Now for a kid entering their teens, that's not an easy period, whether you're a regular kid in cheboygan or certainly not easy if you're an up and coming actress, I'm sure in Hollywood and I'm looking at how you navigated those years and you know there's little bits of things wag the dog or a voice in Anastasia, whatever. And in fact, there's a back to back to back shooting period. I don't know the order, but I know these were all shot back to back to back and came out in 99 of drop dead gorgeous dick and then the virgin suicides, which I'm definitely going to ask you about. But I wonder just in terms of deciding what you are interested in and comfortable doing, as you think back, I mean, I believe there was another movie that came out in 1999 that you declined to participate in and it happened to be the movie that won the best picture Oscar for that year. American Beauty, but you kind of had in your mind, what you were and were not comfortable doing at that point, right?.

"I heard Christina Ricci and a bunch of other people may have tried out and in fact, I just want to read back a quote if I can from Stephen willey who was a producer of that. This was from 1994. Quote, we started looking at 6 year olds, which is about Claudia's age in the book, but the role is too demanding for 6 year old. We needed a child with a mind capable of grasping the fine points of the difficult monologues, Claudia has and Kirsten was the first actress we saw. She gave a wonderful reading, but we thought it was too good to be true. So we saw thousands of other girls in the end, we came to kerson. She's quite extraordinary in the part. And then Tom Cruise also just to add said quote, we're all in our maturity as an actress. There seems to be the experience of a 35 year old actress in the body of this little girl close quote. From your perspective, do you remember about just was it a big deal to even be kind of auditioning for that part? And then take me through where it went from there. It was an enormous deal. Well, I didn't know I was one of the first people they saw. I never read those quotes, you know? So it's cool for me to even hear you read those. I worked very hard with my acting coach, John Ho, who's my acting coach at the time, and just he just made me stand things in a way that was safe for my little mind, you know? I remember him having me slam a door a bunch of times just to like, because there's something really scary about doing that and it brought up a lot of emotion for me. So there were ways that he would kind of help me understand how to get to certain places, but also he was very protective too. I remember there was a scene where, you know, I talked to Brad, I think about wanting to be older and like kind of caress his cheek, or there's something about it that seems more womanly. But you know, instead of talking to me about anything like that, he said, you know, when you're you know when you steal your brother's toy and he asks you where it is and you know where it is, but you're not going to tell him where it is. So that immediately gives a precocious kind of look in a face that is not necessarily. It's not sexual at all. You know what I mean? It's like just, but it has a similar feeling. So I think, listen, I went through so many auditions. It was insane. I remember one of my auditions at the sunset Marquis Neil Jordan talked to my mom after him was like, she met totally okay. Because I was crying and shit. I mean, I think at that point, I had done this so many times and worked so hard on it that I just was like ready, like a horse in the ready to go in the race. You know what I mean? Right. I mean, just to remind people because you talk about there being some grown up scenes and whatever, which is obviously the nature of the part that you were asked to play..

"I don't know. I saw Nick random little pieces that come back to my mind when you're mentioning it. But yeah, we stayed first we stayed after all that. We tried. When we stayed at, I think it was called the highland gardens. It's on Franklin. Now it's called something different. It's a cross from that little park. It's actually where Dennis Joplin passed away. She. Oh my gosh. Yeah, so that's where we stayed. And it was not nice. We were there for two weeks. My mom just didn't know where to go. And then we went to we stayed kind of near the formosa cafe in an apartment building called the Jessica apartments. I remember. And we grocery shop at what was then called rock and roll Ralph's. But yeah, then eventually I think she just felt like it's not the safest, maybe we should go to the Oakland with everybody because it's like a behind Gates. And I get why everyone goes there because if you don't know Los Angeles is just a little bubble of built in safety, which is probably pretty false, but well, and also there's a ton of fellow child actors aspiring child actors who end up staying there. When you think back to that period where you're just sort of settling into life in LA, your dad, I guess, is still on the east coast, but you're surrounded now by all these other kids and you're starting to get auditions out here and all of that was that a fun time was that disorienting time. What do you remember about that? I remember, I mean, okay, it was me, my mom, my grandma came out and visited a lot too. Me and my mom, my grandma and my brother, a lot, but we were in a one bedroom. So it was like a pullout couch in the other room, and then so it was just like piled into this. Apartment. So I remember when I did start school in LA, I'd never have anyone come over to my house 'cause I was like, oh, we're all piled into this teeny one federal party. I was like, I don't. So I do remember feeling that way. But also, we didn't really socialize so much with my mom was, you know, not into we kept to ourselves. Let's just put it that way. We didn't go to any of the stuff. The group acting, you know, whatever it is, if anything, we just run in, get the free donuts and get out. That's what me and my brother were doing. Because it is a weird group. It's just kind of weird. So I eventually started school. In LA, and I had my friends from school. So I wasn't mingling at the oak wood so much. It does seem like if there's a before and after moment for you, it's got to be getting interviewed with the vampire. We got to just. Sort of remind our listeners, you were Claudia, a child who has turned into a vampire and this was as a result of two vampires who are now raising her who happened to be played by Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. Do you remember this was a thing that your contemporaries all would have wanted..

"Hi everyone and thank you for tuning in to the 426 episode of awards chatter, The Hollywood Reporter's awards pod test. I'm the host Scott feinberg. And my guest today is an outstanding actress who is just 39, but has been doing great work for some 30 years already. She became a child star thanks to a remarkable performance opposite Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in Neil Jordan's 1994 film interview with the vampire garnering her first Golden Globe nomination at the age of just 12. During her teens, she began leading a double life becoming a teen idol through films like 2000s, bring it on and the original Spider-Man trilogy, which rolled out in 2002, 2004 and 2007, while also earning critical acclaim. For the first two of her three collaborations with Sofia Coppola, 1990 9s the virgin suicides, and 2006s Marie Antoinette. After a bit of a hiatus from the screen, she returned as a full fledged adult on screens, big and small, winning the Cannes Film Festival's best actress prize for Lars von trier's melancholia in 2011, and Golden Globe nominations for her work as the leads of two TV series, FX's Fargo in 2015 and showtime's on becoming a God in Central Florida in 2019, but never has her work been better received than it was in 2021. When she played rose, a woman in the old west, who is tormented by her troubled brother in law, in Jane campions, the power of the dog, for which she has garnered best supporting actress Golden Globes, sag, and critics choice award nominations with an Oscar nomination likely to follow. Kirsten Dunst. Over the course of our conversation, dunston and I discussed the pros and cons of child stardom. And why she credits Sofia Coppola with helping her to successfully transition into grown-up parts. Why she has always resisted efforts to turn her into a more conventional movie star from refusing to have her teeth fixed to shunning opportunities to play romantic leads outside of the Spider-Man franchise, why she is particularly proud to be associated with campion and the power of the dog, in which her real life husband Jesse Plemons plays her on screen husband, just as he did when they first met while shooting the second season of Fargo plus much more. And so, without further ado, let's go to that.

"Kind of hearkened back to like the old John Hughes, you know, coming of age teen movies, but like a heartfelt genuine moment in the midst of this kind of madness that had a really, you know, a nice feel to it. And I also thought one of the most fascinating thing is Kate Blanchett's character who is incredibly it's a bizarrely complicated character. Like she's just she is a two dimensional character that is just fighting to be two dimensional. That's the idea. Definitely three dimensional. She has all this stuff multiple. She speaks multiple languages. She's got these degrees. She's poetic. She has this weird kind of nihilistic sexual fetish. And yet as a person, what she's seeking is surface level contact everywhere. Like she's almost running from the depth of her being, which is a really fascinating character. You know, I think it's gonna be, it'll definitely get a nomination for best picture. I bet. Right. Yeah, I mean, it's basically melancholia meets anchorman. Did you see melancholia? A large entree or movie with Kirsten Dunst, they know this planet's gonna strike earth. And so it's just waiting for it to happen, essentially. And so everybody's got this kind of malaise idea of like, we know what's going to happen in a couple years and everything's leading up to it. And some people are in denial about it and other people just are just giving themselves over to the reality of it. And it's at a time where we don't have this kind of cartoon level ability to fight back or the idea we would launch nukes or anything towards it. They're just like it's too big. This is silly. We're just done. And it's just like sorrowful. And it's portrayal, but that's large on treasuries of fucking lunatic. But the fascinating part on this one, to me, it's summer, my girlfriend was even saying, it feels like they're setting us up. They just put this giant telescope in this guy. So they can look further than anything. And now they're putting a movie out like, you know, don't look up, you know, like get knocked us upside the head, like, we might actually have to confront this. Right? I hope she's not right. She often is. So I wouldn't rule it out. But again, we're launching that they launched that attempt to push a an asteroid out of the way. It's a test, but they're doing it before it's one of the ones that will strike earth, which is wise. And all that kind of stuff, by the way, some of that started, at least to wind up of it, started there was inklings of it under Bush, the some of the funding that happened under Obama, the actual planning. It happened under Trump. There's a big section of stuff where they're like, yeah, we kind of don't give a fuck who the president is..

"I think to rebecca's point and that's the kind of movie that does stay with a voter and that does stay with a viewer. In a way that i think it only builds estimation Ask for me. I've seen it twice now on it. It really sticks with you in a way that served so well. I was gonna say yes in terms of other people single out his that. Cody's mcmurphy and kirsten dunst both seem to have a good sheriff fans from this as well definitely and we'll get into some of the other titles premiered at venice and ahead of the festival rebecca. You had done a piece on cyrano without having seen it Talking to joe right and kind of looking just central performance and there was a tribute appeared in english ahead of the screening. So you know if they're trying to prime somebody up for an award season aired of it. Seems like peter glitches right there right. Yes i think he. His performance is really strong in the movie. It's it's definitely getting mixed Sort of feedback from people. I talked to on the ground and telluride. You know it's a musical and it's really about love. There's not as joe right. I think it said in my interview not cynical bone in the body of this film and know some people are turned off by that but some of the songs work so well that they really stick with you days after But through it all like peter dinka just performances really wonderful and was adapted from a play that his wife wrote for him to play that lead so he really. You know just delivers a really memorable performance. So i think plus the tribute plus. He's beloved by the acting community already. It just feels like he's got a lot of those boxes checked that you do to become an oscar nominee so i could definitely see him coming. I i will say. I loved kelvin harrison. Junior in this film he can sing like an angel which. I did not know until i saw this. He had a great performance in waves. But i do think even if this isn't the one we'll be seeing him bigger films and as a lead hopefully another musical because he can really sing down the line anymore musicals in the world. We really do kelvin. He comes from like a famous jazz family. Event yeah he's got that background. Well he uses it well in the film he's and i think in english is not known so really be a singer in any sort of formal way but the music for cyrano was written by the two of the brothers who help make up. The band of the national and english is singing voice. Sounds so much like the lead singer of the national like. It's this really low kind of. I don't know how to describe it. like plaintive but not like becoming confident that's a it's a really interesting tone and so he's not like you know some beautiful musical theater singer but like he sells it in the movie and i think that kind of degree of difficulty stuff Earn some extra points. It never occurred to me. That peter england to the national a. b. o. Fit for that reason but the minute you said that i absolutely hear what peter tinkler just singing sound like it for myself glen hansard also pops up in one one scene singing a very beautiful song about war. We happy to see him And then okay two more titles went to check off the list Who i guess. They're both both in black and white. They'll fasten mum on my remembering this correctly Cow which which is the black and white film to beat in. I don't know audience affection or anything else. Belfast in terms of audience affection. I think if not i mean come on come on has gotten much better reviews. I liked that movie. The more than belfast. Personally but i think belfast has the sort of well. Rebecca spoke with canton. Yeah just you belt. It also felt like it played more at the festival than any other film because there was there was always a screening so if someone was always talking about it but you know i saw it ahead of time so i could do a preview. Peace with kenneth branagh and it's it's a very personal story to him and it's his realm. I think i said this before on this podcast but to me it you could actually feel how personal that story was to him and i really appreciate it. And because it's about his life as a child in belfast. When suddenly his childhood was sort of turned upside down by this violence in danger. And i feel like you can kind of relate to that now because as parents you have to decide what's safe and what's not during this pandemic with your kids and and then there's a lot of movie watching the film and i feel like being televised. You sort of remembered that you missed movie watching as an escape in a theater and so it just somehow becomes a super timely movie. Even though it's from kenneth branagh childhood wonder about movies with movie. washington them at their oscar. Track record is because there's movie watching rome. There's a time in hollywood. There's got to be a weirdly identical to in that respect to hand of god because that is also movie made from his childhood which through the various things that happened as childhood charts his journey to becoming a filmmaker so it some is a lot of parallels there and i believe that one also he spoke a lot about just the residents of the pandemic in terms of you know encouraging them to want to make this film so i wanna ask by hand god because david you mentioned that was one of the big three netflix..

"kirsten dunst" Discussed on The Takeaway
"And now we shift our focus from real life political drama to the fictional kind political. Tv shows and movies have seen unwavering popularity over the decades. We wanted to know about your favorite political shows movies and characters. And here's what you told us. Hi this is robyn from philadelphia. My most recent favourite political drama is borgen which is about a woman named. Beer jeep nyborg. Who becomes the first female prime minister of denmark. In addition to really enjoying the characters who felt to me much more real and less hollywood than a lot of characters on american shows. I also gained a better understanding of how a parliamentary system works and of what goes on behind the scenes between the media politicians and they referred to as their spin doctors. I always liked air force one with harrison. Ford is the president. Get off my plane. I think the movie. Dave offered an interesting commentary on fiscal responsibility. The time that is accounting friend came to the white house and went through. The budget is iconic on how they found so much governmental. Waste the best man with henry. Fonda fantastic manchurian candidate angela. Lansbury is so brilliantly evil. Dick with kirsten dunst aah michelle. Williams is so funny. Some people prefer comedies that parody are lawmakers but personally i'm a big fan of the political thriller. I think what i love. Best is the mix of public policy politics and good old action no matter how much high stakes tension there is going on in the actual washington. Dc were california for that matter. There's something endlessly entertaining about the best of these shows and through them. We get a peek behind the capital walls with varying degrees of accuracy. Joining me now to talk about what the best of these shows have to offer is dr lily. Goren professor of political science and global studies at carroll university and co author of madman in politics lilly. Great to have you here. Thanks for having me on today. Nancy so what do you think makes a good political thriller Well i mean a lot of it is The drama obviously so whatever. The narrative arc of the of the show or the movie is and some of the some of the ones mentioned by your listeners including things like borgen Or the mentoring candidate are among my favorites. The depth of the characters involved in how they are interacting with politics as well. Do you think that most successful political television shows tend to mirror the political reality of the moment or they usually things like the west wing that provide a more idealistic hopeful version of our politics. They usually go in either direction of something like the west wing or madam secretary which are idealistic and and to some degree fantastic Or they go in the other direction like say house of cards or scandal where there's a lot of murder and You know started duplicity and secret. Things going on In the halls of power so neither of them are really based on reality And they're they're fun to watch and of course they have you know great actors and actresses and really interesting writers who are sort of threading the plot lines. I surprised that there aren't more shows like the house of cards. I mean there's obviously a huge appetite for detective stories. Police procedural rules mysteries like that. And that you know house of cards is kind of a perfect blend of that but We we just haven't seen that many of them right. Yeah and again you know you have shows that do take this up And something like the wire is another show. That's actually quite political. But it's it's not national. It's in baltimore And it's at a lower level. It's about local politics So you do have different kinds of approaches to thinking about The you know the insanity of something like house of cards but you may see it. In some different sort of venues. I have loved access to international. Tv that street has brought us and some of my favorite shows have been. The norwegian show called occupied which is a full on political thriller. The is rarely show prisoners of war which was behind that led to the american homeland series And i think my all time favorite was the bureau which is a french spy agency show but had very geopolitical focus. Plot have have you seen much international. Tv shows are you waking. I have an an a number of the ones that you are talking about. like the bureau Are among some of my favorites particularly borgen Which you know. The first time. I never wanted to do anything else but watch borgen And it just it again. He served can contrast that to a show. That was made More than a decade or two decades ago in the united states by gina davis commander in chief that was for one season also about You know a woman. As president of the united states all of the conflicts that she dealt with at home and in the office and so forth. That were centering around her gender and in borgen you see so much of the same thing but you also see it in this. You know in a parliamentary system And all of the differences that that kind of a system in a coalition government has So you're right. They're quite a few international shows that also show us a lot of political thrillers like occupied. Which was you know again. Fascinating eating show you know are there any particular shows that really captured. The trump era in washington Well i've been asked this question before and The the television show that is about to debut its fourth season. The handmaid's tale actually Green lit or you know sort of put into production before trump was elected president. But it debuted just he became president and there was a lot of discussion about how it seemed to be capturing a third of the zeitgeist of the the the trump years in terms of you know sort of having women lose autonomy or agency over themselves and their bodies And you know some of the ways that mr trump was misogynistic in some of his commentary. about women and and so i don't think that the handmaid's tale necessarily captures the trump years per se But television also has a lag time because things often have to go into production A year or two beforehand with cova. It's been very difficult to do. The filming And and produce the shows because of the limits on the capacity to do that safely. And so i think we may also have a lag in terms of shows that kind of reflect what people may have been feeling during the trump administration right. So maybe it'll take a couple years but we'll start to see something a little less dark in a little more stick we may. There's always hope and of course we had shows like scandal that tapered off during this period as well which were kind of dark as well. Dr lily.

Interview with Anya Taylor-Joy from 'Emma'
"You were mentioning before about being eight years old and not doing one thing but your background is really interesting and unique. It's complicated right. Yeah you're like raised in Argentina. Born in Miami yes move to Argentina. Yes then go to London but before you got to London. You didn't speak any English. No so explain that. Let me in the states because my youngest to siblings isn't the ones closest to me. They were born in the states and they didn't want me to not have the passport because that would have been traveling with six kids one of them. Having a different passport was just like a nightmare so they didn't want to do that but pretty much instantly. After I was born I went over to Argentina where I spoke got these I know for the whole of my life and then we moved to England when the political situation got quite frightening and then I refuse to learn English because I wanted to go home and in my six seven year old fray. Now's like if I can't speak the same language as these people may be like. My parents are definitely going to take me home So that didn't work out and I was very lonely so I learnt so I know talking to you needed to make friends so I started I actually learned to speak English by reading the Harry Potter books. So now you're in London. Where does it come to you that you say you know which is also a Russian name by the way? Yeah so in this study. I do want to clarify so I in America people find it very hard to say my name. It's and yet. I'd say like aneurysm. I'm trying to find a nice. So it's on. Yeah yeah it's everybody at home. There will be a quiz. I've been so anxious about correcting people in eventually. I'm like that's not my name. I'm not going to respond to you unless I'm yeah prevent. Yes so it will be for me forever way. That's where it's going to be but what happens I head? Did you started acting? Did you start with modeling? What was the first thing you did? I can't ever remember performing being something that I became aware of. I was just always doing it and then got started watching genuinely and when I started watching like nine thousand nine hundred kids classics that had animals in them. I was like I wanna be the kid the rights the whale like. That's a job and I want that job. Like this is unbelievable Kirsten Dunst Jumanji. I just I wanted to be part of all of those adventures and then I got scouted for modeling which was never something I thought I could do but I did think it was an in to acting and then on a photo shoot. I recited some poetry to an actor. He put me in touch with his agent. And then the witch see. That's all you need to do. People is recites poetry. No I had I had read somewhere which is probably Apocryphal. And maybe it didn't happen but that you felt when you were discovered to be modeled you were being stalked by the why it was terrifying. I was wearing high heels I had a party the next day and I'd never worn heels before and so I was working moms high heels and I was walking with my dog and this car kept sort of edging around me and I would pick up my pace and the car would pick up pace so eventually I picked up my dog and I just liked it because I was terrified and this guy stuck his head out the window went. If you stop. You won't regret it. An idiot stopped. I have no idea like if anybody tell me that scenario. I'm like no if you keep running like that's what you do. Yeah but it was. It was the head of storm. Model Management Are Ducasse. And she was like a never stop again and be coming to see me at the agency tomorrow. 'cause 'cause we thank you have a future with never stuff again but be this is a good piece is good wounded. Yeah it's a good thing to say if anybody is being followed by a car. Please don't stop running because I'm definitely. I'm definitely the anomaly in this situation. Everybody else run run the way that was put. You won't regret regret that I didn't. So wow that takes me back to your m night. Challah movies where you could wind up captive by psycho not changed back. Well he isn't. He's a lovely man. So you do stopping and you get this job. Yeah it was. It was unbelievable and honestly going back to sort of my upbringing and the way that I still am. Transient you know. I'm pretty nomadic. But the first day that I stepped onto the set of the witch was the first day I ever really felt like I belonged anywhere like I just felt this feeling of I'm here. I'm where I'm supposed to be and the people around me. We're all speaking the same language and we're interested in the same stuff that I was into and I just I. I grew my first family there. And we're GonNa make a movie together again Starting in March and I just can't wait to go home. I heard about that. That's going to be no no. This is the north men over what's happening with Knows fraud is not. We have another movie to make. I I this vacation I keep seeing for us never going to happen. I don't know I'm yeah. I keep their random moments. I'm just like I need a break and then I'm just like I know you're doing everything you've ever wanted to do. Just get extra night's sleep and wake up and keep going. How old is your family? Relate to what you're doing. Are they all happy for you? They're all very all of my siblings. I have no idea what I do. They're just like okay. Did you have fun cool? And then just sort of quit but my parents are very very proud of me but they should be look at all. This is happening thanks. You know and you did a movie that I totally loved called thoroughbreds. Thank you well. It was really amazed you and Olivia Cook. She seemed more disturbed initially and then as we go along we see you not being afraid at all playing somebody who might have jobs some peculiar abilities but this is this is what I find very interesting between characters like lily and Emma because my way into the characters so different for each of them when I was playing lily I defended her every single day on set so members of the crew would come up to me and go lily such a bad person and I would react as if they told me that they hated my sister. Something I was just like. You can't speak about her that way. You have no idea what she's coming from she's going through a really hard time Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and then the movie ended and it was almost like this veil was lifted from from my eyes. And I was like. I am praying psychopath for like a month and Oh that was tough. I couldn't keep any of her jewelry. I had to take it all off at the time I had to defend her and with Emma. We are both so I was so close to her. Initially but that didn't mean that there weren't days that I showed up on set and I was like I really don't like I'm I'm as behaving terribly. She's being brought. I don't WanNa do this. Don't WanNa be doing right now but it helped in the scene. I guess
Horses Follow Money
"This is popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and my frontier Alexander Skarsgard has a movie called the team movie of some serious intent guarantee that each and every one of you will have a chance to be a warrior Jackson do something out here to be a part of history said of reading about it in some book and I like that Wolf in that scene looking like do I believe this guy yeah because he wants to be a hero in the beginning of this scene nats character is reading a book on history so when deeks walks up to give this little little speech clock said and he's like Oh you're you're history so that's why he wants ended in he knows at all these guys young guys want to do what they want to be heroes they wanna be says this is your opportunity to be a part of history instead of just reading about it in some book on so this is his way of just tickling that a little bit to get them excited and like trust me follow me and you get to do great things I think what this movie is about and what it's saying and what's manipulative about it is very timely it's there's a thirty and ital- authority masks itself sometimes and how it creates a thing where you wanna please it or you can also say if you don't please it it's going to be trouble for you absolutely and how easy it is to surrender your morality to authority the the MILGRAM experiment you remember that back in the day they think it was back in the stay there was that famous experiment with a had subjects. Push a button to electrocute someone in an in another room but because there was a doctor of or an actor playing a doctor conducting this experiment telling the subject to to do this normal good people law-abiding citizens we're willing to ultimately execute someone might push of a button in another room because they had surrendered their own morality to a person in a position of authority on which is very troubling and there's movie touches on that a bit where in the beginning they feel like they're part of unit and the unit has its own. Morales be in its own moral compass and the leader of that unit is deeks so all they have to do is just follow blindly and what happens for Bregman nats character starts to rub against his own morality eventually I was also fascinated with how declares the guys against each other it's almost like a love story and it's a courtship he it is positive attention and then when someone's not quite doing what he wants to heal ignore that work on rayburn another character instead and then suddenly eases pet which will leave Friedman feeling stuck out in the cold and bring back in his lover and on and it obviously feels quite timely 'cause it's about whistle blower which is quite topical right now isn't it totally is look at you look at you go from one into another without ever being the I mean I'm watching I watched you know on being a god no but that guy yeah from another planet yeah you know I I need a little levity between some of the dark projects worked on so so that was it was a great opportunity to that a lot of fun on that job and Kirsten dunst and you'd be back together again after melancholy and your large tree experience we play a married couple again melancholy different kind of very different and I couldn't have been more excited I love I love there's an she's obviously fantastic actress but also so we became very close on melancholy and I was thrilled when she called and said doing this show and asked if I wanted to come in and play her husband and then get eaten by should I reveal it's a spoiler alert I know that now we the Dow and you found that very appealing immediately didn't you yes and I love the way it was set up because it said it's the two hander and you think all right this is a show about this couple on an I love when you in a way almost trick the audience too so they sit back can eat popcorn and think like I think I'm not watching this is going to be the trajectory of the show and then the end of the it's so surprising hopefully to the audience suddenly taste eaten by me and and the Hell Agadir and then the show is about something very different and it takes a different turn so it was lovely but what does the success that you're having do to change it when you are on big little lies you didn't only win the Ma you when the Golden Globe Sag Award every other award they could actually meant did that turn your head around did you look in the mirror and say wow you're fabulous that's how I start my day every before those awards that's my mind to eat just my bloodline from my parents like wow you're you're you're fabulous go out there and conquer the world they'll do it but that must have been experience doing that series as well it's extraordinary it's kind of a great thing with you and Meryl Streep deep we have one day one together one little moment and she said son and I started crying and my heart melted it that was it I mean yeah it's Meryl Streep it's on there are a lot of extraordinary actors on big little lies obviously had the great privilege of working closely with in the coal but Amerisleep is grow up watching her movies and a massive Fan Kramer and Kramer was I WanNa my parents favorite movies that's just so bad parenting because they would why would watch that when I was a kid about such a great movie the worst right the kids let's watch it was their way of saying you should be grateful that we're still together because look at this this is what can happen this is what could I think is Weird is that your dad's done in Mamma Mia with her yeah has way more scenes than you've Ah Yeah Way more fun and singing and doing that and you know dad loved every second of it I think it he can't dance he can't sing hey he should not be wearing wearing spandex but he's dances and he thinks that he's worked with all the worst panics and he loves it and I think it I think the audience his loves it does he give you a pointers now in your career does he call you up and say I just saw not after the spandex and Mama Mia and do it and I'm like Dad you've lost for list but you've got how many of you in your siblings are actors three three three siblings yeah yeah we're eight kids and four of us
