Overlooked Auteurs: Ida Lupino and Maya Deren
"Guys. In this first episode of your. Marathon. With my appearance films, Meshes of the afternoon at land and ritual in transfigured time and IDA. Lupino. The hitchhiker I've been thinking about how to connect these two directors and these films if it is fair to connect them. On the one hand Lupino and Darren have little in Common Darrin made experimental films bending cinemas form and it's character and narrative conventions and she worked holy outside the studio system. She was this film theorist writer director actor where she funded promoted and screened her own work off and on living room walls. Lupino on the other hand made more straightforward narrative films following character plot and structure conventions, and she worked from inside the Studio System With Archaic Pictures for example, ultimately distributing the hitchhiker. But it is notable that Lupino was actually suspended from studio contracts and when she turned to directing, she formed her own production company called the filmmakers and beyond production itself both women in their unique ways bucked the system and pioneered that own paths and I think I must say, Latinos, the hitchhiker is perhaps for me alternately as subversive as the wonderful woman figure in Darren's at land this figure who crawls and gropes her way along the long table at a formal dinner party exposing and disrupting their rituals and expectations of so-called polite society. Take the ways both Darren's meshes of the afternoon and Lupinos the hitchhiker reference and disrupt the conventions of filled noir of their day. If nor films broadly speaking are these thrillers featuring things like low key lighting and claustrophobic urban interiors kind of a somber mood a sense of cynicism inescapable fatalism, an anti hero of course, and FM fatal both films give us many of these things but new Lupino Duar in the hitchhiker rejects the classic cityscape and creates the same coster phobic intensity in a wide open desert landscape instead. She also rejects a FEM fatal that figure of Man's demise, and she focuses our attention on the brittle masculinity of her male characters, exposing guns fetish wielded only by those who are weakest and most insecure. And instead of a SAM spade type figure furiously asserting his independence, I won't play the SAP for you. Lupino suggests it's in vulnerability and Camaraderie where true strength lies. And Darren's noir infuse meshes of the afternoon while offering her character, a claustrophobic cycle of fate within the walls of a city home from which noir like death seems only escape. She even more radically rejects cohesive ideas of anti heroine, FEM, fatale, and makes her central figure a woman someone who she makes both anti hero amphay towel. And instead of a thriller playing out over a three act structure, she makes it a thriller wholly confined to one individual's mind where we see justice many twists and character trails as any new are. So my question for both of you as you begin this new marathon and consider Lupino and Darren specifically is what do you see in these directors films that like the connections to Nuwara that we've noted the film's are products of the kind of cinematic conventions that every filmmaker is in debt to, but also showcase evidence of trail-blazing in form and in content the you so much. Melissa. For that setup, we hope that we'll. Get a chance to hear from Melissa another time or two throughout this marathon. But she certainly did an excellent job getting a started she also in her extended voicemail pointed out that look was the only woman director who is included in Andrew Sarah says the American cinema directors and directions from nineteen, sixty eight, which included his ranking of directors. He kinda put him in different tiers of his Pantheon if you will and Lupino. was there, and of course Sarah the man who coined the term at least here in the United States, the auteur theory that are marathon title references he had her in the back of the book called Oddities One shots and newcomers and also rightfully points out. She wishes that says had just left Lupino out as his entry on her work basically dams her with Faint Praise Melissa gave us a question there to wrestle with. As we consider both of these filmmakers how rooted in traditional filmmaking and even especially in Lupinos case Richard in genre their films are but also how trail-blazing, how pioneering their work truly is what stood out to you in that regard with both of these filmmakers well, let me start with Darren, and first off just to say that I think meshes of the afternoon. Her first film is a flat out masterpiece it just completely. Knocked me over in a way that reminded me of a film that's in the tradition I think you could say Darren was working in and that's Louis Boone Wells whom Chen and Lu which we did as part of our boone. Well, Marathon Adam. So it's a this is an experimental surrealist film in a Lotta ways meshes of the afternoon but what is distinct about it to me is the way dare intakes this dreamlike atmosphere this the sense of dreaming the intellectual surrealism at play and made it. So intimate this movie just feels completely distinct from something like Shin and blue because it was an emotional experience for me whereas. The other one I think you're kind of like a fun puzzle to think about and it's you know. Under Lewis disturbing absolutely in it, it strikes you on that level. But here as we follow this woman played by Darren who walks into a house in the afternoon goes up some stairs notices. Some items falls asleep in a chair and then the whole sequence kind of repeats and it repeats a number of times. I just basically felt with each level even as it got increasingly surreal, it was. Another level of psychology we were really exploring of this particular person. There are ideas at play here, but there is also a person who's who's reality and whose very life we can say is at play. So in addition to all of sort of the experimental touches techniques that we can probably talk about in this this short film, it's sort of that the way the movie really captured psychological distress. Dislocation for me that makes it stand out and stand alongside I would say something like in China Angelo. Yeah, I agree and I think maybe the best way for me to try to get an answer to Melissa's question is to talk about the fascinating intersection of these two directors. We put them together pretty randomly there the first films in our series chronologically, and it worked out that we would combine some films here because the three Darren films combined are about forty five minutes and Lupinos the hitchhiker is only about seventy minutes. So that's a solid two hours there between these filmmakers but how perfect was it Josh watching? These films together and thinking about these two filmmakers together you have Lupino someone who I think is clearly interested in using cinema to reflect reality and you know this from watching the hitchhiker and especially that opening bit of text right that tells you that this is based on true events than you're going to see facts play out at uses that word and even implicating you as a viewer saying, this could be you yes. Experience could happen to you but also how focused she is on putting us as viewers through this experience with these characters so that sense of reality is omnipresent and I also know it because i. Watched a video was I think on the Criterion Channel website? It's a very short video, maybe a minute, but just kind of puts lupinos career and Perspective Imaging Sarah Smith is the critic who talks about her work and she says explicitly, Lupino wanted to make documentary style films about contemporary social problems like rape unplanned, pregnancy, disability bigamy, and the corresponding clip examples there notably, all feature women in these movies and women's stories. That's not the case at all. Of course, with the hitchhiker. Now, you've got Latino on one end of this realism spectrum, and then you've got Darren on the complete opposite using cinema not to express reality. Or reflect reality to completely transform it and I think where they meet in a really interesting way is in Lupinos, expressionistic flourishes and endurance psychological realism. You said a perfect word there the intimacy of those three shorts that we watched. That's where these two filmmakers crossover they seem so disparate and distinct, and they are, but they're also mining some of the territory.

Did you get yelled at and I said no I did not My wife one of there's so many wonderful things about Mary but one of them is she does not hold a grudge and I know that she was ticked off at me this morning. Things are different when you're working from your house. They're just different. My usual routine is out the window. I woke up before the alarm on my iphone. Went off this morning and So I picked up the phone and I walked into the bathroom and his brushing. My teeth and I left the phone in there so I came in here to get ready to go on the air and the phone. It was left in the bathroom. And of course the alarm went off so the door opens. Well were on the air and she just dropped the phone Right there on my table next to where I work and walked out and she did not slam the door but it was firmly closed so I was going. Oh my God. I woke her up. You know she. She loves to be able to sleep later in the morning. So I went out there and I said I'm so sorry she said it's fine. Don't worry about it house the show going. I just love that. There are just things that are different that are happening in your life now Things like just leaving the phone in the bathroom which I normally wouldn't do and eating I. I walked into the kitchen and she had a muffin. That was on The counter on a little paper plate and ice looked at the MUFFIN. And you know she's thinking of eating this muffin. But I saw the Muffin and I said I need to eat that Muffin subconsciously. A new it was not my muffin and I'd already earlier had a muffin. You know so. I did not need a second muffin this morning but it was. It was there by itself and it was like you need to eat me. It's like I can't go through that kitchen without opening either a refrigerator door or a pantry door in eating something and I don't think I'm alone now. You were like this at work though so this is just your work behavior that you're bringing it home now now. You're just eating Mary's MUFFIN. But at every break you will go for a wander and have a snack. Usually not at every break that then. That's an there are lots of breaks. You know what I miss most about not being in the same room together is right at that point Sherry when he said not every break you would have leaned back and kind of looked over and giving me the side I I would have died as as soon as he started to defend himself. I leaned back and gave the cat off so much russell because I you know I felt the presence of this. I did like we would go to a break and he would go for a little walk and sometimes he would come back with his cheek. Pouches Cram like a hamster heading into winter and sometimes not but there was a lot of snacking going on there. Were many times I just get up and walk around just to stretch my legs and contemplate. What brilliant nugget. I'm going to be bringing to the show next. These Melian Nuggets. They don't fall out of the sky now. Why did you put that Muffin in your face? You do? That was her muffin. I didn't need it. No I left it but my immediate reaction to seeing the MUFFIN was eat it. Because Bob you are a Predator and that muffins your pray and you can't help being the animal you are. That's exactly right. It's just so many things that are that are different. You know. I got this continual pain in my neck. And no it's not you.

Are you kidding me? Oh two bathrooms. How many bathrooms could they possibly have even if they loaded? There's always somebody in the bathroom. How many bathrooms would you need third? How many in all seriousness. How many bathrooms do you need? If you have thirty three people living in your house I think you need four. I think four minimum unless you're Mike Brady from the Brady Bunch who was an architect and they only had one bathroom for those six games. He was. He was the war stark architect. Hey you know what? Bathrooms and dish. Washer and laundry is not my problem if I had thirty one kids getting WIFI. Use for thirty one. Would that would just ride. `Cau- you you couldn't you couldn't do it.

According according to Albert's family roots first attempt on her husband's life occurred in July of one thousand nine hundred twenty six on a warm summer day Albert was taking a nap in the Living Room Granny Brown was out with Lorraine and ruth left the house to run errands not long after she went out Albert woke. Oh God feeling sick and gagging. The house was filled with gas fumes. He stumbled outside gasping for fresh air when Ruth returned to find him in the garden. She acted horrified. She claimed that as she passed the living room heater she he accidentally kicked the gas tube. Free of the Living Room Wall on her way out the door but it didn't seem like an accident. Albert's sister said that later later the trying to kick the gas to free of the wall and couldn't do it. They thought ruth must have yanked it out on purpose by some accounts. Ruth also made several attempts to poison Albert by pudding by chloride of mercury tablets. In his drinks telling him they would cure his chronic hiccups. The pills didn't kill Albert. The only made him vomit but since hiccups did in fact go away. He apparently apparently didn't question his wife's treatment when poison didn't work ruth reportedly tried to guess Albert again in early nineteen twenty seven. Then she wants more use the excuse that she had kicked the gas tube as she was leaving the house she came home yet again to find him gasping in the street complaining that he had almost as fixated leader at a party with his family members. Albert made an offhand remark about out how close his wife had come to widowhood however he appeared to be joking for whatever reason it didn't occur to him that his wife might actually actually be trying to kill him perhaps because they were ordinary middle-class people living in ordinary middle class life. In Albert's Brits Mundane World Wives complained about their husbands in rare cases. They might even divorce them but they didn't kill them though. The idea might seem absurd according to evolutionary psychologists David Bus. Almost anyone can be capable of murder. Dr Dr Busek said that murder fantasies are incredibly common. In a study of five thousand individuals. He found that eighty four percent of women and ninety ninety one percent of men had at least one clear fantasy about committing murder Dr bus stated though we like to think that murderers are either pathological misfits or hardened criminals the vast majority of murders are committed by people who until the day they kill seem perfectly quickly normal perfectly normal just like roots Snyder but she was serious about killing her husband and she would not be deterred.

"How are you doing? Where are you calling from beach? Own Beautiful L. A.. Okay Dr Debbie's right here. What can we do for you? Well my question is I had a sixteen eighteen year old cocker spaniel. And I've had him since he with a puppy so I know his moves his behaviors and recently he started Camping a lot and I mean just like breathing really heavy fast and he also is he follows my husband and I around from every room to to room and when he's breathing pattern that's going on all the time or is it just sets a certain times of the day like I've noticed it more in the evening and does he ever cough or have any other type of symptoms. No no coughing hyphen. Have them check out with the vet and they did discover that he has a firearm viral. So he is on medication twice a day. Okay and has he been reevaluated. Since he's been started on that he he was. He had his blood redraw two weeks ago. Because because that's an important thing for pets that are on thyroid supplement We WanNa make sure that level is in the right zone if it's too high. We can't actually see some anxiety behaviors. Here's panting Drinking a lot so that's just where I wanNA make sure that that is a a nice healthy zone and it's not if it's even at the higher end of normal and you're seeing these behaviors then I think that might even warrant Adjusting that dosage. But you know there's a lot of things in an older pat that will cause panting and if it's time that nighttime anymore sometimes there's some behavioral things that we can look out and dogs can have types of senility problems. What we call cognitive dysfunction? That may that maybe something as simple as you know kind of being a confused stage having behavioral changes panting excessively suggs. Get up in the middle of the night and kind of wonder uh-huh that's what he was doing and I even noticed that he walked right to the living room wall and he stood there and he was looking at the wall and I had to go over-chill him and move him away kind of pat him because he can't hear anymore either but he's he's not in any pain but I'm just wondering if that's something like the breeding if I should be concerned current about that we'll do breathing itself You know I would want to accompany this with a good physical so listen just heart lungs. Make sure everything. There is good if we're not picking up anything physical that we relate eight to the heart of the lungs. Then I might really be looking at cognitive dysfunction or or this doggy senility. Because we see a lot of what you're seeing. Dogs will be kind of pacing They tend to get their sleep and wake cycles screwed up so they may be up in the middle of the night. Like hey man. I'm going to party and during the day they'll sleep like a log so if you're having in a couple of these types of symptoms I would speak to your veterinarian because there is medication we can use to help this and it basically helps to increase the the dopamine levels in the brain And that is something that is it takes a month or two to see some improvement with a pet. That's on it but I wouldn't hesitate if they feel that everything else is good. You know to look into. It's a medication now. Also there even are some diets that have some enhanced antioxidants enhanced with fatty acids and they actually have been shown to help with brain function impacts that have cognitive dysfunction like this In Hills House Diet for that So that may be even something else that you can add in that food is called B D Or between a diet might be some some solutions for you if it does seem that we have this cognitive dysfunction. So I'll definitely look into speak into that again about the Dopamine in the medication actually is called the legend lean. It's a horrible word. Just say Selena but if you say cognitive dysfunction or you say CD s Your veterinarian you'll know what kind of concerns. Aw thank you for your call. One eight six four zero five eight four or five.

He described the moment for the story story core podcast earlier this year saying the crowd separated like Moses parting the Red Sea and Kennedy was putting his hands up like a boxer trying trying to avoid getting hit bobby. I saw him slumped to the ground. His legs were splayed toward me and I saw the blood dripping out of his ear ear then you are shot the photo that haunts history Kennedy his legs limp staring blankly into nowhere with the young busboy crouched beside him propping up his head with stunned helpless look on his face that busboy Juan Romero died earlier this month from a heart attack at age sixty eight though in truth his heart broke that night as Kennedy lay dying in his hands like so many others in the late sixties Romero a seventeen year old Mexican can immigrant said he saw Kennedy as a uniting inspiring figure in a time of great tunnel just the day before Romero delivered room service service to Kennedy. He told story core about it. Describing how Kennedy was on the phone when he walked in you could tell when he was looking at you that that he's not looking through you. Romero said he's taking you into account and I remember walking out of there like I was ten feet tall after snapping the photo Yaro raced to a phone so he could alert his editor. He was ordered to the newsroom room immediately while he told reporters what he saw.

The psychological damage was worse for Romero. Just before the shooting Romero offered offered his hand to Kennedy for congratulatory handshake among the hundreds of letters he received were ones blaming him for for Kennedy's death. He recalled the letter saying if he hadn't stopped to shake your hand. The Senator Would Have Been Alive Romero moved moved to Wyoming to start a new life still he couldn't escape that moment cried a lot he felt guilty and and in two thousand ten Romero traveled to Arlington National Cemetery to visit Kennedy's gravesite to apologize in person he had never owned a suit so he bought one for the occasion getting dressed up showing Kennedy respect saying he was sorry all of it brought back the way he felt when he first laid eyes on Kennedy while serving Him Room Service.

And he admits police. I tried to question him about it several days before his arrest. Did you answer the questions answered what I could answer the questions without put myself in jeopardy? I said, we'll do I need higher attorney. They said I wasn't under investigation to that point. They would just asking questions. So I answered a lot of questions would I don't know. I don't jeopardize myself. This is the TV that I purchased says he bought and paid for this seventy four inch flat screen on Amazon. What a third party shipping company delivered it. They also gave him a larger model TV by mistake. Did you ever think that hey, they made a mistake? I should return this. I did. And I looked into all the laws and everything happened. I say, you know, it's a scratch ticket. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose Amazon said I had nothing to worry about. I made no wrong decisions. At that point. The shipping company tells Boston twenty-five they made numerous attempts to contact memo before they went to police, and the shipping company says memo's signed for the delivery, something he disputes, the drop ship company tells me they tried to contact you five times, and you will never coop. Operative with them. I have my phone ringing all day long, run a business. I get calls from Google website people. I have no reason to answer all these calls important. I just hang up. Did you ever tell them? You were when you were not. The memo says he thought he was going to be arrested. He would've just paid for the extra TV or give it back. Now, he's looking at the possibility of jail time memo pleaded not guilty at his arraignment. We wanted to get more information about this case from law enforcement when we contacted the Bristol DA a spokesperson for the office directed us to the Freetown police department. We left a message, but it has not been returned reporting in Freetown. I'm Ted Daniel Boston twenty-five at is called Freetown. The city is literally called Freetown the irony. The irony of it. All right. What's the difference between the seventy s and eighty six inch jail town. That's the difference with this guy. I've found it hilarious when he said. Yeah. They said I'm not under investigation. Correct. You're not under investigation you're under arrest. Zero four eight nine two two seven zero three on man. Let's go to Todd calling from the car wash on his biological. The first time they talked to him. He said they asked him was India investigation based on that he kept giving them the responses. I don't know which was a lie 'cause he did. No. I think that I think that is what will be determined is the criminal act, and that would be an obstruction charge down the road. He has not currently been charged with that. But the guy had it mounted on the wall. He went out and bought a number TV mount wall kit, especially for the eighty plus inch television. Well, this is the supper lesson in the consequences of greed. Joe that's one thing. Everybody should get from it. Would you have kept the television Todd now man, I'm not like that. I'm not I'm not like that. At all. I wanted to when you when they couldn't win the got it in my door. I would've told them.

Tv may know may have been meant for and also what didn't take any consideration is somebody may have missed the Maidment made a miss out at the company delivered it, and they may be getting fire. It is just TV comes here. So I I would take an auto things in consideration. Now to take it. Okay. I'm just I'm just not that type of do all things of that cost things of that cost level. Stacey Abram Joe Biden. What you think about that? I I really don't want biting the run. But it Stacey Abrams his teammate, I strongly consider it. I think it's a good idea. I talked about this yesterday on Fox News and. CBS forty six. I think it's a good idea. Here's why Joe Biden desperately needs credibility in the marketplace of progressive politics to win the democratic primary. Here's the truth. He has weaknesses that will be exploited during a democratic primary process. Even though he's polling number one and number two, respectively, given the current polling data that's because he has not been challenged on his previous weaknesses. He knows. That's coming up. Also, he has absolutely no national fundraising apparatus in place. He shared that with his supporters of you days ago, who does have a national fundraising apparatus that is still fresh Stacey Abrams. Stacey Abrams guarantees guarantees victories in places like Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi Democrats in a democratic primary need those states to secure the nomination. So I actually think it is a good idea to consider a Stacey Abrams as. As a running mate. How is Joe Biden day seventy eight. I don't think I think he's seventy six maybe he's he's definitely upper seventies. Let's just talk at this point. So maybe I'll come back to this at a later date. But I just heard about a day. So I just wanted to pass. Yeah. I didn't know you'd are gone into it. Yeah. And I play the clip I played the clip from yesterday. If I could find it, but he's seventy six seventy six years.

The treasures that are all around us are often not valued for what they really are. We see them every day. But that very customary site is often the reason for our own blindness.
