"A lack of urgency at the same time I have some friends who are interested in movies and they were like, Hey, what are the good movie racks and I told them and then I got a text back that was like, okay but none of these are coming out. And I said Oh I'm sorry you're not actually going to be able to see these movies at any point I don't really know what to tell you. So there's still such a big question mark at the end of this. Now, a lot of this is because it's September and as I mentioned the Oscars are out not until April. So. We're starting a bit earlier in the scheme of things in the timeline and you know there's also a pandemic and theaters are in crisis and things change every day in terms of release schedules. So who can really say but I do think that there's a lack of urgency as a result. You imagine a world in which there. Was No pandemic and I I wish we could imagine that world not asleep for so many reasons we already would have seen pixar soul. We probably would have already seen Aaron sorkin trial Chicago seven maybe we would have seen bank maybe make would've played telluride who knows we might have seen a lot of these movies, these movies that. We know are coming out that your friends are asking you about we'd be able to recommend to them and say, Hey, this is coming on October twenty third this is coming on November fifth and most of the even the stuff we're seeing now I don't I don't know when it's coming out but let's use that as an opportunity to talk about what we have seen in what we do like so. You know this is a very abbreviated list and I don't want to go into too much detail about these films because I don't want to ruin them for people I, don't think that you can ruin David Burns American Utopia, which is just an absolute steroidal shot of joy and and safety. One of the just one of the best things I've seen this year I completely agree I have not had a stronger reaction to a film this year or in a while and certainly a piece of art in a while, and this is what I watched alone on my couch at two in the afternoon, which is the worst possible circumstances to get like Amanda to engage on something and I think I cheered up within five minutes and was really emotionally moved. Throughout this, this film which I do think it is a filmed version of David Byrne's Broadway show which I was lucky enough to say but I do think it exists as it on its own as a film. There is art into way in the way that it's filmed and I am a little bit speechless and to talk anymore without. Spoil parts of it though I think you're right. You can't really expose spoil the experience you either like kind of get live it swept up in that world for two hours or not but I thought it was extraordinary. Yeah and this is one where we're not necessarily torturing people by talking about it because it's coming to HBO on October Eighteenth. This is directed by Spike Lee Obviously David Byrne is the star of one of if not the greatest concert documentaries of all time Jonathan Demme's stopping sense. This obviously feels like a book end to that film. There are a lot of talking heads songs in this film that he performs as part of the show American Utopia is that he released a Couple years ago, and is still kind of the spine of this show and I don't think we should talk about the themes or the choices that he makes. The choices that spike makes just say it's pretty amazing. It's completely enveloping I had a similar experience I kind of watched it in the middle of the day and just took me over and I actually struggled with that with some of these other films films that I liked if I was watching it at the wrong time a day or I had something going on in my life or I just a little bit more distracted than I would have been if I were sitting in one of those theaters in Toronto until you're right or wherever. This I was just not the case for this. I just was sucked into it and then it. You know pummeled me down into a talking heads rabbit hole for three days, which is like the best place for me to go same I. That's all we've been listening to you in this House and my husband can watch it with me. So just like I think every three hours, I would just kind of out of nowhere be like another thing I'd like to tell you about David Burns American Utopia and he just like can you please not spoil it? Yeah it's it's a it was a really happy. Inspiring place to be yeah and it felt like a natural kind of festival kickoff film. Right is the sort of movie that I think you know isn't necessarily it's not this is not GonNa win best picture. It's not that really that kind of a movie it's it's an experiential movie. It's a salve really for for Broadway, as much as it is for films because this is a show that was active when the pandemic hit and had to shut down because of the pandemic I believe I think I'm getting that right and so a lot of people missed out on the opportunity. To experience this who at tickets or had planned to see it I I would have been one of those people if I were traveling to New York just because I love burned so much like a very just an important artist to me personally and It's cool. It's cool that we got to see it. You know it's cooling. We got to see him do his thing but I do think it really like there is a I mean obviously, it was directed by Spike Lee who knows how to shoot things but there is a visual sophistication to it and the way that communicates. This design and the movement and the music altogether, and it communicates like what the show itself was able to create within a theater. But I also think like uses the film medium as a medium itself I. I can't say enough good things about it I agree. Maybe we'll talk about it a little bit more hard to say I would love to talk to spyker David about that if they're out there listening in the world. I I'm going to mention that nomad land is definitely going to make our lists of our favorite things we've seen thus far. We'll wait to explore a little bit more detail in the next segment, but just WanNa site that this is a this is this is kind of the movie of the festival season thus far, and we'll explore why that is shortly. The next move is one night in Miami and you and I have not discussed this at all. Did you get a chance to watch this? I did enjoyed it I did too. So when Miami is based on a play by Cam powers and it's directed by the Great Actress Regina King Recent Oscar Winner Regina King and it is a fictionalized portrayal of a night in Miami and nineteen, sixty, four, the night that Muhammad. Ali Sunny listened to win the world heavyweight championship and it's mostly a four hander that features Malcolm X. Jim Brown Sam. Cook and Muhammad Ali talking that's really what the movie is. There are other aspects of it. There's some a couple of impressive boxing sequences in the movie. There's a couple of sequences that are outside of the four of these guys talking in a hotel room for the most part it's a contained story. A amazingly timely film and I was at you and I are probably not the best people specifically to explore. What's really at the heart of this movie I really am I. I've I've tweeted van lethal like I'm very excited to talk to him about this movie because in many ways if you've been listening to the higher learning podcast on the Ringer podcast network, the movie is like a reflection of a lot of the conversations and debates that Rachel Ends Ian van have been having over the last four or five months. But what did you just generally think about what Regina King did and and the setup of the film? I think everything that you just said about us being like we aren't arbiter of of this movie is True A. Lot of ways becomes again, we won't spoil too much but it is four men talking in a hotel room, and so they have a philosophical and political and religious. Conversations and sometimes debates, and they are on different sides of things and it was. A, very welcome learning experience for me just to watch these fictional characters talk about these ideas and just to sit and listen and watch. So I, thought that as you said, extremely timely topical matters even.
