In 'Stillwater,' an American Oil-Rig Worker Seeks to Exonerate His Daughter
"It's a familiar story. The stereotypical American goes abroad crass and brutally honest, but with a heart of gold, who breaks all kinds of rules to save the day. But while the new movie still Water may wink at this formula, it has its own story to tell about America's place in the world. You're innocent, so we gotta keep fighting. It doesn't matter that I'm innocent Dad. It's not about justice about finding peace. That's Matt Damon as Bill Baker, a former oil rig worker who travels to Marseilles, France, to see his estranged Daughter, Alison, played by Abigail Breslin. She's in prison accused of the murder of a local French Arab girl, but claims to be innocent, and Baker struggles with the unfamiliar language, culture and legal system as he attempts to free her The movie is out now in theaters and its director is Tom McCarthy, who won the Academy Award for best original screenplay for Spotlight in 2016. I began by asking him if the real life case of the murder of MEREDITH Kercher, which sent American Amanda Knox to an Italian prison in 2000, and seven before she was eventually acquitted. Inspired this film. I would say the seed was there. I started the script 10 years ago, Really? And I was sort of fascinated with that case, particularly the idea of An American student being imprisoned and then ultimately focusing on the relationship between as you point out her and her estranged father. So it started there and worked on this first draft of the script with another writer, and I just got into a place where it just was straight up thriller. I just felt it lacked dimension and Maybe authenticity, and I sort of put it down. I made the decision is director not to pursue it. Put it in a drawer for about 67 years and I picked it up again and I re approached it sort of from Page one with two new French writers. And we really talked right off the bat with Tamar. But again, in the way Debray about exploring the sort of you know all the dimensions of this story, the human dimension of it. The thriller Dimension suspends

"It's like the night Santa went crazy or whatever, and this other like fat thing that Weird Al did, and he's like, Oh, Mel Gibson just making the intellectual property weird Al the, intellectual property movie but I think he's doing it in a cheeky way 'cause he's not like that at all I. Love Much Love. I have. Yeah for Weird Al to go after Mel Gibson in any way. And he's so smart and is always comedy so like calculated. I want to jump into some of these, our no. Okay. Let's do that. Let's jump into a couple patron questions because John You you said you went to film school. I know you're a bit of a film buff that's why you're. Game so Shane. All of us, but we'll let you start John Favorite film that you either rediscovered recently after not liking it the first time around or that you were recommended to watch by someone else. Who? Last night. I got. Baked And I watched midsummer the directors. And there's more no. Be Better, it's supposed to be better I mean, it doesn't change a whole hell of a lot but I the first time I watched that movie. I loved hereditary. So I was coming into it lake hereditary and it wasn't that and on the second time watching it I was like ready to just be bored but it was more interesting. I. Think after knowing the plot points to knowing where the movie is going I was just like totally taken in and also I think the we'd helped I will say I, don't know if. Cannabis on the pod We talked about it all the time we have a cannabis sponsor. We own. Wow. That's right. I've midsummer I. Loved Because I. Just think it's a weird movie that like not it's not weird in terms of the content it is obviously weird in terms of the content like. Weird. Incest Orgies Lake, you know pukes and stock let's colts. But like all that aside, like the movie making is really strange, it's like you don't get movies that are this slow and like. Sumptuous and like Moody because it's effing two and a half hours and the director's cut three hours, I just like that it's like that. So I. Don't know if I'd recommend it I. Liked it. I totally agree because I can't think of the director's name for some reason but the the imagery Ari is Ari after Ari Astor. There you go. I almost said it and I was like that's not it but. I didn't and I fucking what? But. The. Visuals man the visuals in that movie are so credible and it's refreshing to see, and then you see it and then later on people talk about how? Did you see in the background because like I won't spoil too much but there's someone who passes away early in the movie who dies movie and then later on there's like a there's like a wide shot of like this area or whatever, and the trees are like in the shape of the dead body. Who Died. I didn't see that that's like Scott Chill Dude. It's fucking incredible and I love it when movies do that, they take the convention and they twist it and they go. I'm GonNa make something different. I'm going to make these visuals. Something people have ever seen on screen before and I really love that. About composition in that movie for sure. Yes. Like the long takes and then there's like racking focus and then like he's just kind of a master at like a long take like shoving as much information into that as possible and also it's like there's not a place where you can pause that movie to be like, okay. Time to go do something else like we were trying to posit. So we could get chips and dip and maybe re up below. And we were having the toughest time pausing because every frame is just filled with so much to look at and that's like a fun movie. It's not like a salting you like it's Tiktok the movie it's not just live in this little creepy place for awhile. Yeah. You know it's pretty. Because a hereditary you think you're going into a little bit more of a classic experience as far as horror goes and that includes I think. Lighting mood lighting when it comes to that, and that movie is so bucking bright. and. Just like there's light everywhere, they're not hiding anything. They're just like everything is here. You can see it when bad shit happens you can see it. There's just there's nothing hiding in the shadows in that movie, I? Concept it's such a cool concept. Yeah. Do you need to see third day? Have you heard of that now it's an. Incredible and cool. Elliott please see everybody see it. It's Jude Law and it's very midsomer. It's very midsomer. Jude Law. Do Jude Law's just Steve. Did you try Utopia? Alana watched and I saw some I walked in and saw her watching it sometimes it looks beautiful and it looks like a great show I'm going to watch it but it's not. I thought Oh I think. It's pretty bad it. I like to episodes but. And really high hopes. The right against I'd be curious your opinion on it because the writing to me it was very. This is Gillian Flynn I'm the. Better. because. Let's euphoria. Listen, and Rainn Wilson and John Cusack. So. That's where you're. Damn. Yeah Watch third day though if you want real good. Yeah please please Jude Law because he's the only celebrity I know celebrity man who's like I'm going bald and I'm just not going to do anything about it. Balding. Thank goodness for you man. As easy. Good for yeah, and he's like a sex symbol like he's he's one of the sexiest man alive and he's got he's just letting letting them go natural I love what we were saying on the stream when we were talking about Jude Law is that I feel like that dude is just. He's just an Ma. Amazing actor has the has the present. So he's actor, but he's also a star very much like Brad Pitt Brad, Pitts and movie stars and movie actor. so as Jude Law and he's like and he's beautiful like he is a frigging movie star you see him and you go.

You're young guy would go. Okay. Well, that's good and then you go. Well, it's post divorce. If I got to go back until my young Catholic at the height of my Catholic belief lake that I one day would do all the things that I did including talk about getting a sex toy stuck inside of my on comedy central. I think I would still end it with. Here's a picture of your girlfriend though, and then I'd be like, Fuck Yeah Nice. Thirty something single men is. Girl could I show my high school self that would make them think I'm doing. All right. I'm GonNa Bring this moment full circle for y'all check this out. So Jon and Elliott pretty similar high school experiences with the theater and the religion Steve Catholic myself. I grew up no religion supercenter for sure. No theater none of that just a jock in Montana playing football and baseball and all that stuff I go to video games and video games, and then go to college, which is a Catholic institution jesuits go Gonzaga and I find theater and Improv and fall into it like my sophomore year. We just didn't have it in school as always kind of interested fell into it in college I also attended theater like festivals I. I got an Irene Ryan Award in college for my my rule is Matthew Poncelet in In. Dead Man walking is that the right character I think it is and I went to the Irene. The festival that they do in colleges and I did the competition thing and I also was really fucking bad and I would never want anybody to ever see it. But they're better was good. No no no. No. I was a thing about. College. No. Way I feel high school theater is always cringe. College theater only sometimes. Yes. Yes talented people because people are really starting to figure it out. One of the people that I was doing a scene with was Luke Baratz. who was an actual and is an actual good actor and gets it and his next level, and I just remembered doing a scene with him and being like. I'm. Really, fucking this up for you. Real sorry. I'm the not good one. Yeah. act. I have an idea. Let's do. Let's do a video. That's like we get are we it's US and then we get our talented Fran our other talented friends to come in and show off something from their past like some kind of college performance or some kind of sketch you made when you were a teenager or something and we just look at that because I need to see shit of you acting in College Joe and I need to see you doing that fucking memorial interpretive dance through. Interpretive. Dance. And John, I have to see your sexy. Yeah. I have to see you like why? Are you guys in bear like obviously you don't want people to see it but is there a world where you would share it? Still. Percent Oh. I love that. Well, let's just do that Joe come on. Yeah I had it. I would show it. I've got like dance performances when I was Oh, that's that's that's my curveball when I was in fifth grade, I joined ballet and jazz and modern dance for three years because I oh my gosh around saw girls and they were like, Hey, I was like, Hey, what does this thing with all the girls and she was like this is dance and also I'll let you do it for free because you're a guy. So I did three years of like free dance training in Montana because I was a dude and I love it I don't I, don't. I don't WanNA see your I. Don't. WanNa see. I desperately WANNA see I don't i. don't WanNa. Make jokes about like fifth grade Joe Do. Do Not Beautiful but they are funny you could definitely make jokes I. Think you need to chronicle your because you don't know if you own any of those those are at your with your dad or any I I have I have Oh, you have. Okay great because I was GONNA say because I would go like go down the fucking rather hole and chronicle of that Wagner, yourself like calling your old high school buddy and being like do you have any footage of US fucking around in school or whatever or in a musical or something like you can really dig this shit out it'd be really fun I think. John and Elliot and Steve I know you've had a little bit of A. Past With the rocky horror, hipster show you just did. Do you miss it like I know that I miss live theater and if there was a world where it made sense financially for my family and whatever I would love to do a musical or jump back into a play if I had the time and and How do you guys feel about that? Is that a world you want to get back into? I'm so nostalgic for that kind of stuff and honestly this recent this. This, what did I do your trump video? Yeah I was GonNa say if trump was Hitler. But it was hamlet. Him. With doing like doing like the dances that wasn't written, we just started shooting and I was like what if we started dancing and then the whole thing is now me dancing just because I wanted to and I desperately wanted to do theatre I, just love it. But but yeah, I was so pragmatic I was like I'm never going to theater school I would never get a job and at that. Point I wasn't Youtuber so I was just like I'm I'm going to be pragmatic go to film school but I regret it because I I wish I could dance did take dance and stuff like that would be stage. That's always like we should get some. We should get like a group of youtubers together and take show on the road that is kind of theatrical I've always wanted to do that.

So to go back to turning it into a small interview, which I know is annoying. Sometimes, how did you stumble into it I'm sure you've told the story before, but you're little younger. You but I feel like you kind of got to see you to one point Oh. Did you. Did you avenue ambition like I wanna be a youtube and then you made that choice or just like I got these ideas and this is a place to put him, and then you happened to stumble into a little bit of notoriety because you're artists. So kick ass. Yeah I mean I was making videos of VHS camcorder as a kid that was like legit VHS I would like shoot like scooter videos razor scooter. Obsessed like legos and claymation. Those were the first videos ever made roll like Lego claymation. And music videos. So that's and I would make instead of making. Like writing a paper or book report, I would make video for the class and then screen it, and that was just what I did for fun. I didn't even think about it being like a career. It was just cool and then from there it's like the notion of Youtuber came out like you were. Baretto was like a huge influence because that is one point.

Oh music videos parodies fandom like that stuff I'm naturally interested in on like a big corny white guy. So I do Capella because I can't play instruments and that's basically had the whole thing came about and then the perfectionism and all of that like self criticism that was just part of me from day one. So that came baked into the arrest. Yourself, you get dibs on hating yourself from day one for short. I. Know that I've ever truly do I've never met an iteration of you that one of the reasons I love you very much is one of the first moments I made it was like Oh yeah. No I get it.

This is the comment that will haunt me forever. But in the comment section, it was like he's like Bo. Burnham meets, John, mullany. And I was like that's so nice that I looked at all the replies like but not as funny as either. Okay. Why. Right I'm. John Coz art replying to. Well. Let her know stay up is so hard I don't know how you did that Elliott to be honest with you. It's it's. It's the worst thing that I've done probably my life. Getting up in front of people theoretically. I have a show right now in Washington DC in December and I'm nervous to cancel it because I feel like that's rude. But at the same time, I'm like I don't. I don't WanNa do that for a billion reasons one of which Situation that we're. It's feels like a distant memory at this point it feels like I'm like I feel the same way. That's cool that he did that and. God bless them. Would never be able to fit to not revise and revise and revise and revise all these jokes that I'm like this is my five minutes or whatever I would be looking at them before the set and be like I can't tell any of these. These are all awful I. Don't think this crowds gonNA like like I don't even know like then you're studying all the other comedians before they go up going like, okay. How's this audience? Are they laughing at stupid shit or are they laughing at smart? Shit will change my whole fucking set because it's all stupid shit essentially, it's like I I have no brain for that. My brain does no acute that. Like wouldn't it be easier if if we were geniuses life over sixteen, we have a stand up special of like musical comedy at Sixteen. Yeah, we have the knowledge taste to able to perform that. He like if we so much easier if we were geniuses. Yeah said we gotta do it the hard way. Capable Yeah. Different. Oh. Go Hang your say he's not doing it right now either like he's he quitting media but. Also. I don't want to do any of that stuff anymore. We're all the same. We are I I don't know I just. It's just it's so sad that we that there's so many geniuses and you're just like, Oh, I'm so I can just reach out and touch get a little bit of that genius. I'd be so much happier. I'm just feel like I'm just right behind the people that are behind genius that I love so much and I just feel like I I'm so close and I know I can do it but I just there's talking me Steve Documents Steven crowder he. Yeah. Go ahead the problem with what you're talking about Steve, is that the ven diagram that you're trying to create the things are so far away you've got a big old circle of genius over here. And the happiness circle is about seventeen miles away. They don't cross very often. It's usually you're genius with a little bit of melancholy but a lot of it a military. been.

But the thing is it works it works and you have an amazing audience and we have amazing audiences and we have people that La support us and are there for us when even if we want to take a two year break or whatever they'll be there and I'm sure there's been an outpouring of people that are just like Holy Shit we missed you. We need you right now. Yeah it's so humbling 'cause I just live up here in my own brain. So I'm not online all the time getting all this praise thinking about how great my videos are. Usually I'm just putting myself down. And I don't know if that's me or every creative personal like man that Shit I made two years ago boring I'm really ready to show people what I'm capable love and being the adult in the room making real comedy or whatever, and then I have eventually right and then I get to a point of such misery trying be this like legit creator that I just get to a point of like i. have to make something and then I make something like this and people love it and I'm like, why did I do that? Are you wearing is while you're saying this, are you wearing a studio seventy-one sweatshirt? Well. Well, that's the thing I haven't made a video in two years. So by close. My favorite sweater is the instagram has an Instagram TV logo on the that it's such a comfortable. Yeah. Yeah. Did I wear things that studios give me like this eight, twenty, four shirt or like this says like bill and Ted you know three Shit my daughter is now at the age where like she's big enough that her and heather my wife's clothes or like they get mixed up and they can just kinda share and go back and forth I'm like waiting for the day I get to do that with Jackson and I don't have to buy myself close anymore. That's. Just. Start doing it now and let the clothes slowly grow over time. Fitting I feel like we're kind of like naturally just talking about Youtube, in general is kind of our topic which is great and I. Think There's a lot to be said. Joe You have some. Yeah. Because, I could tell you about to segue maybe even to no, I, don't WanNa work I WANNA. Stay. and. It's one of the questions I wanted to ask There's a point that John was making about I think what I think it's not. It's not beholden to just creators and stuff, but I think there's this you you get tired. And this could be somebody that's creative. This could be somebody that's a little bit more analytical like you could be good at a job. You could be a great accountant. You could be a great politician you could be you know. Anything under the Sun. But at some point, you might just hit that that wall and like I got I know I'm good at this but I want to try. Something else and I just don't want I don't WanNa gloss over the point of this isn't something that only creatives feel I feel like it's a healthy thing that John's talking about too. Yeah I am good at this but I do want to explore these other avenues I want to I want to challenge myself and hopefully not fail but failures good and you grow in all these other aspects of my life and I think I, think everybody listening whether they're creatives are not probably feel exactly what you're talking about John. So. True. Honestly did y'all see the last dance. The last series yes. Oh, Michael Jordan. Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's great. Oh my gosh it's so good. Told I need to see it yep? Willard. I heard that. It really is if you think about it, that's some. Shit. It really is it's like so shocking Michael Jordan I mean the whole documentaries about how how great he is like literally, how much? Than every other like person ever play the game and then he quits to play baseball just because he'd liked baseball as a kid can't rule and. The most relatable thing. Yeah are you kidding 'cause I actually mean is no for sure. One hundred percent think is incredibly because. I could always go be an archaeologist like some kind of off the left field thing. I can do. It's hard for like someone like Michael. Jordan obviously, and in a big big way and it's hard for you know our little corners of the entertainment world as well because we we start off doing a thing and people really like it and they know us for that and then we do that for years and years and years and years and years, and then we're like, oh This is killing me from the inside like I I. It's not doing anything for me in like a stimulating way, and so it's like what what can I do? What needs to happen and sometimes you gotta like you know change years or maybe you modify the thing that you're doing how do you rearrange the Putty of the soul? Exactly. Exactly. Exactly. How do you? How do you played the Jenga the soul without toppling over the whole Oh, my God my God. Yeah. Go ahead and put on a t shirt, but it only desierto it's. A studio puts on T. Shirt you'll wear it. Free. Also I think there's a benefit and if you start out being fairly transparent about things with the audience, then it's a it's less pressure to in moments like this like I. think There's a lot of creators who wouldn't feel comfortable having this conversation any kind of public way and act that we have people who are like, yeah. No, just we get it. It's very refreshing situation. It's important to have people here that. I think I think if we're going to be an influence on so many people and on our audiences and for some people that's many many many thousands to millions of people. It's kind of like It's a bonus to be real when you can because then it's like it shows people that like well, you know I mean even though we we have the little the knobs turned up a little bit more on some things that not everybody else has we still get anxiety and we still feel stuck when we're doing the..
