Yeah her in the monkey and about so funny in the beginning he was like he's Craigslist Telling monkey like oh be glad you. Consciousness yeah and then the family value totally as bubble consciousness. Yeah completely yes. I read i. I read you that like. She didn't love her. love her character. I i guess. I don't need her performance. Because i think her performance satisfying but like my two issues with with that. I think everyone else you can. You can clearly understand their characters. You know like like craig wants. Success and cameron diaz surname. Lodhi wants to be loved. You know i mean you can kind of understand their emotions but catherine keener just likes to fuck with people again yeah. You don't always understand her. Motivations may i i mean i guess maybe i was interpreting. Maybe she'd want to make money off of malkovich and i didn't mind Getting in the middle of this other relationship happening. But yeah. I mean i guess you can i add Yeah maybe every watcher thinking more about that. I think that makes you might be right. You might you might have caught onto something. While i was going to ask what you guys thought the whole purpose of that that film that lake Other all about that. Let me last. Night was the first time i'd watched being john malkovich over Which was great great experience. But like since. I've just been thinking about that. I can't figure it out.

"Just, self-indulgence like everything is him and he's like fuck I don't WanNa be me like get me the fuck out of me I even Malkovich probably wants to be somebody else right and then of course, when Lotte and maxine going to the unconscious then you're like really want to be this person who has all of these traumatic experiences. It's kind of like a very cynical take on that that. Desire that desire for escapism it's being seeing like, Oh, you see these people but fuck men were all fucked up when you get down to the deep recesses of the unconscious and stuff like that. Do you really WanNa be these other people and it doesn't really leave with any solution it's not like you should just be true to yourself and be happy with yourself. It's none of that but it's basically Just. Kind of. Romanticizing of others of otherness you know. Well. Why are we kind of like wind into an actually Raymond? Go ahead because I think I'm going to derail. Thanks look at. I was just going to say you hit on something interesting there Austin I, think that. Even. Though everyone who's giving so much of themselves for this experience in in like I said, they're entering this head and relinquishing control and To some degree, Malkovich also makes that bargain when he gets a call from a complete stranger and she says, you know meet me at this restaurant and I'll be there at this time and like there is this like you said, there's this yearning that he exhibits to four. He doesn't really know what it is, but it's going to be something different and I think that you can say that across the board for everyone as opposed to except for maybe you mentioned Michael that all the old folks seem to just want to live forever except for John Koos Ex. Boss who I think just wants to be able to fuck to itty he's just Solely, driven by sex. Just, like It comes back to that notion of like wh- what makes immortality worthwhile? You don't have any desire left like for for Craig. His entire desire is to be with maxine and when he's denied that he's denied it in the worst imaginable way whereas all these other people just want the just the bassist things they've you know to experience the world through someone else's eyes or to just fuck in perpetuity. That guy that guy seems to be having a grand old time at the age of one hundred five. Well let's let's leave that as. Well here let's wider. One. Okay quickpoint. and. Middle Thirty seconds thirty seconds thirty seconds go. It's crazy. The Catherine Keener in this movie were has a job where people pay her to go inside other people's minds while in get out, she has a similar role in that family. That's all get. I was thinking about get out a little bit as I was watching this to. Same See that that took twenty seconds. We're all okay. Appreciate Malkovich is definitely in the sunken place in this movie. Yes and before we continue onto the mail bag I, WANNA. Give a shout out to our last sponsor of the night hellofresh I don't know about you but I love to cook. It feels better than eating out and usually tastes better. The problem is that preparation is always. So time consuming I don't want to have to go to three grocery stores to grab everything I need especially for specialty items I end up with I won't be able to. Finish before expiration date or by a bunch of unique herbs and excess entered hellofresh with their measured and mouth-watering meals that are delivered right to.

"That's the return whatever it is you know what I'm talking are the rises. That there are themes that he's trying to represent through these characters. I don't quite see that that's what Kaufman's doing. Rather I think that he just is like exploring these really personal themes but because he's such a philosophical thinker, they end up being projections of. Concepts if that makes sense I can I ask you all a question that I think relates to this that and let us my be over reaching or reading into stuff. But something out to me was the difference in seeming motivation for people that wanted to be inside John Malkovich. Felt. Weird to say inside John Malkovich. It and it still feels weird but it's part of the film but like. We have the Schwartz's I guess. Yeah. Because maxine never goes in this Schwartz is Go into Malkovich for experience on to be something else to explore part of themselves to use their artistic skill for the cusack character he's a vessel for his own art for the Cameron Diaz Character. It's a way for her to explore male identity identity, but then the crew of like the old timers like the extras from cocoon that live in the mansion together. Like there seems to be, we don't want to die. So jump into different host bodies for the simple perpetuation of life. So maybe that means nothing. Maybe I'm looking for rules in a world where there shouldn't be rules or maybe it's saying something about like experience because of course, I also think it's significant that you can be a Malkovich for fifteen minutes. As the general sort of thing like this experiential thing, it's fifteen minutes is that getting your fifteen minutes of fame? I think it's something. Special being important like, yeah. Yeah. I mean I think I. Think There's definitely like the lineup of people that are paying the two hundred bucks because it's John Malkovich and he's such an amazing actor like part of that is I want to see what it's like to live as a celebrity part of it is I want to see what it's like to live as another person, and then the interesting thing is most of them have enjoyable experiences, right? Like it's amazing. It's exhilarating to to to literally live as another person be in another person's bodies. But then when Malkovich goes into his own portal and he comes face to face with his own self, what is it your hair? Yeah and it's just solipsism so I think there's an interesting. Almost tension there between all of these other people in their various desires to live as another person for whatever the reasons are. If it's just because they wanna live forever or if it's because they want to experience something that they can't experience from within their own identity position in the case of Cameron as or within kind of like their failures because they haven't had the opportunities or whatever it is in the case of character. And then that's kind of different. All of those motivations compared to kind of what happens when Malkovich goes in right? It's totally has their reasons I mean the first guys great where he comes in and goes I want to be someone different. We can offer you a chance to be John. Malkovich use that would be my second choice. Yes absolutely ridiculous long. Okay..

"He uses him to be with maxine and then uses Malkovich's notoriety to get his own career going. So it's using John Malkovich. Yeah. I'd say it's using John Malkovich well, this I'm sure this is something that may be on your. List to sort of explore Austin but the whole notion of the Cartesian south. do you think this is an endorsement of Cartesian philosophy or rebuke of it? Yeah. I think that the interesting thing is this quote is more an endorsement of it because it's kind of implying that there is a sense like an essence of Malkovich. That has never distorted right? You're only ever using Malkovich. But when I watched the film, the funny thing is I actually I actually I think it's different when I was when I watched the film I, do think that there is no real Malkovich At when when it's taken overnight like there's no true Malkovich, right like others the moment when when he snaps out of News, I'm fucking paranoid I heard this other thing in my head. But by the time, the Cusak is doing the puppeteer dance with Malkovich's body by the time at that point I think there's something much more synthetic going on there's more of a hybrid going on. So the funny thing is that his quote totally seems to me to fly contradictory to how I interpret the film you know. In in a way, that's kind of what made me think of that when you brought that up because when I watch it having Malkovich's head as this I mean, essentially, it appears to be a tangible vessel for these transient egos to inhabit like that flies directly in the face of what he's saying in that interview. But this is this is also the guy who you know. When when he won an Oscar, he took the stage and said I don't want to take my time, I don't WanNa. Talk I want to be gone. He's disappeared ha so. There is this aspect of his personality to where I'm like is that also part of it does I mean he seems to have contempt for the whole. The, the show side of show business or maybe the business side of show business. I mean it may be difficult to to draw the distinction, but I wouldn't put it past him because. Well, this is something I was going to bring up that. So often on this show. You guys will talk about movies within a philosophical framework, and that makes sense because I think all art can be seen through philosophical framework in the same way that it can be seen through political framework but it's I think fairly uncommon or infrequent for the filmmaker screenwriter to be aware of those frameworks when they're developing something I. think Charlie Kaufman is one of the rare filmmakers that actually engaging with the dialectic and in a an intentional way. That's interesting. Not This interesting. So actually Michael and I both had a supervisor out of point didn't last for the entire time I don't think but at various points by the name of John Malarkey. Who He's actually changed his name now in use as an Irish name, but I don't know how to pronounce it. So I'm sorry if I'm being lucky wasn't Irish foreign well, he's like it's like the Irish, the Real Irish saying it's like my. Is the one that the the English colonists shoved on people as they destroyed their language but let's not go down this rabbit. Michael, clearly Irish descent everybody. So, John John has written a lot on like the philosophy of film and one of the things that he kind of does is he takes a different route and he says rather than looking at how we can do philosophy of film. He says that no film is a language in itself. Film is something of itself like you shouldn't do a philosophy of film..

"It sweeps you up in its energy. You accept the rules in the rules are simple enough that you don't get lost. You know it's not like. you sometimes I watch. A movie like I dunno inception where it's like they have to stop every ten or fifteen minutes to explain more rules and. You know a movie like that isn't overly complicated but even so when you're script is built on. Okay this rule. Now, this rule in this role is built on those roles and there's this this math to it. That's constantly compounding you. Do have to to stop and make sure that the house of cards doesn't fall down whereas I never feel like this script is labored. I. Never feel like he's like he's Working overtime to try and hold everything together I. Think the thing moves it works like it may be weird but it's definitely relatable and you know it's crazy. He doesn't explain the rules like you don't understand why is. That why? Do they fall out of it's just the top of the screen and you're like, well, that's. Like message for Christopher Nolan I guess like it doesn't matter. He doesn't explain all the rules and it's fine because it's a movie and we don't have to have. Someone stopping to like explain it to us because as soon as soon as you try and stop and explain how this door in the wall of the little room goes into John Malkovich head. That's when you fucking lose people because they're like, oh, that stupid as soon as fantasy starts trying to become science fiction and edging, you know great you just let it be fantasy than people we'll go with it I was literally there's a quote where somebody says that this isn't science fiction. This is fantasy A. Fantasy I think that's exactly right and I think that's why why this films convoluted storyline is successful is precisely because it doesn't of get bogged down in the future to explain it it falls apart, right? Exactly. Okay. I. Want to read a quote from an interview with Kaufman because this is kind of based on a on a theme of of the film that I thought was interesting 'cause the title of the film is being John Malkovich. So the question is is do these people who are paying two hundred bucks a pop, and then you know even Schwartz, who becomes the master puppeteer? Do they pay for the experience to be John Malkovich or is there some sort of weird hybrid or some sort of synthesis what's going on? Here's what Kauffman said. He said, well, you're inside someone else's skin but Craig doesn't have the experience of being Malkovich. He has the experience of using Malkovich..

"Not to use a cliche term, but it is like self therapy. All of his films are you know when he's putting them out there so it yeah and I think like rain and pointed this out about the Malkovich unconscious and the narcissism there. But I think it's interesting to look at like three different things in relation one would be the at character as the misunderstood artist who gets punched. In, on the street for his puppet show because people are coming from other room seems and you have like, yeah. Then you have like the first level of Malkovich unconscious, which is the Malkovich Malkovich. Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich world. Then you have the one that the Cameron Diaz Catherine Keener character going to that's the deep unconscious of childhood trauma of. Being, picked on all these sorts of things. So the sort of like you have this this sort of art coming from a place of trauma, you have this sort of narcissism necessary for an artist who believes the their their work deserves to be made, and then you have the like misunderstood cusack character and I like all of those sort of like different slices of like the artists psychology. Now last last episode that we did on Kaufman there was some discussion about like the film was kind of self indulgent and self aggrandizing. Do you think that there's something in that? Do you think there's something to that with Kaufman's output more generally that doing this type of investigation this type of another, airing out his own neurotic dirty laundry and exploring the deep recesses of the the causes of being a tortured artist there's something that's like a little bit self-aggrandizing. I think that. Are. At least insofar as its commodified is inherently egotistical in a way because there's this tacit acknowledgement that like I think the contents of my brain or with the contents of your wallet. So you can't. You can't really escape that and. I do understand. Some criticism that people could have of him that you know maybe his work is too personal or but if it's as entertaining as this I, it doesn't really concern me too much where it comes from I think that he writes these and these pieces are Cathartic for him in a way that art is Cathartic for a lot of artists and it helps him and it's appealing entertaining and engaging for the audience I mean clearly this movie has. Has had an impact because you know twenty years later twenty five or twenty six years later now. It still is I mean. It's giving us a lot to talk about there's a whole lot to unpack with it. Yeah I kind of that question you ask, and I really love your answer to that as well. Rounded about you know is it too personal to self-indulgent i? Don't know it makes me think of music like I would never complain if Bruce Springsteen to self indulgent and personal on an album right? If anything I would. I would argue that like for let's say like a springsteen or Dylan or IRV like a Dolly Parton or whoever their best work is their most personal introspective work and what about..

"Maxine and maxine falls in love with Malkovich or with Lottie inside of him in fact when they have sex maxine repeatedly calls Malkovich. LAUDI. Now Schwartz gets jealous and he gets pissed and he locks laudi in a cage so that he can monopolize Malkovich's mind and date maxine while inside know he's a master puppeteer. So he begins to learn that he can actually take over Malkovich entirely this makes Malkovich more and more paranoid and after consulting his close friend, Charlie? Sheen he follows maxine to floor seven and a half finds. The portal insists that he entered the portal to his own mind once inside he finds himself in a world where everyone looks like him and can only say Malkovich after his own fifteen minutes he spit out and demands that the portal be shut. Of course Schwartz. Refuses Laudi then escapes from the cage tells maxine that she hasn't been inside Malkovich, but actually maxine has been dating Schwartz Malkovich. But maxine enjoyed ourselves so much she decided to just continue. Lottie then runs.

"So he was in that world and wanted to use the script just as a SPEC to get comedy jobs and I think this movie reminds you of how funny he is and that he does come from that world. Now he's grown increasingly darker maybe more self serious in his recent films but this is a funny movie. Well, this is a question that I'll just put it out now and then we'll do the recap and then let's get into it after does he need a director? Does he need a Michelle Gandara does he need a Spike Jones? Does he need somebody to do the eternal sunshine? You know to do the being John Malkovich when he is in control a Lisa? New York, his latest film is there some Ran Spike Jones? Did Adaptation to right? Yes I have this. Great. Sorry. So is there something that he's almost a little too close to the material I? Think that's something we could think about let's put a button on it, and then I'll do the recap and then we Questions, get some thoughts on them. All right I have no idea how the going to do this recap. So let's look Sir Lindsay is works all right at the beginning okay. So Craig Schwartz is an unemployed master puppeteer in an unfulfilling marriage with pet obsessed wife Lottie soon after he gets a job at Leicester Corp on floors seven and a half of the Merton flamor building in New York City he discovers a hidden portal that leads directly into the mind renown actor John Malkovich the trip inside Malkovich's mind lets him see feel the world world from Malkovich's perspective for fifteen minutes before being spit out. into a ditch near the New Jersey Turnpike when he tells his co worker and object of desire maxine about portal, they decided to start a business charging others two hundred bucks a pop to be able to experience Malkovich Schwartz his wife Lottie however becomes.

"Him as the actor in that movie lane does version of himself and how in sense that's like could be seen as harder than just planes and external character. And he's and he's a very big actor to right. So he's also fucking great when he's playing John Cusak playing him like there's a sudden sanction. Where you're he adopts some of John Cusak I think sex from Illinois he has kind of a regional dialect a little bit. He adopts aspects of that and some of his mannerisms and you feel as though he's really channeling guy channeling him. There are so many layers to it. It's it's a lot of fun to watch. Yeah. That's such a good point and watching it like those scenes after huge act fully. Moves in to to Malkovich the movements the dialect it's so great and even how he becomes he goes from exuding this theatrical confidence to the puppet master insecurity. Jack's character. There's a scene where when John Cusak is in control where he kind of in its early on and he's still getting the facility of. Malkovich's body where he comes in and he's just kind of slightly slumped over and he just has like you know kind of closed off hangdog expression and that weird kind of manic energy that John Cusak has when you can win meets Catherine Keener in the bar and he keeps saying. You're what? What's her name again? maxine. maxine waters maxine maxine maxine, Mexican like. There are these weird little ticks and. ECCENTRICITIES that Malkovich? Since so good. Yeah. Yeah. So my experience, the first time watching it was very similar to Michael's I felt like I watched it and I thought that there was more going on like I knew that I wasn't getting it all but I enjoyed it even just getting into the story. It's kind of like that shit crazy in the characters are great and I. Think cusak great, and I actually completely forgot the Cameron Diaz is in this like I. Feel. Yeah. Lately forgot kind of disappears to. Yeah. But like Brunette Brunette. Cameron Diaz like I was like what the what I'd like for some reason I thought the first thing she did was the mask where she's like the blonde bombshell or whatever. Right? So I completely forgot. And then obviously Catherine Keener is great. Catherine keener is great but you know what's Weird I. Seen as a handful of times now, and I actually struggled watching it this time and it wasn't because. I wasn't because I don't think the film is interesting..

"Yo. What's going on everybody welcome to show me the meaning wisecracks movie podcast. That was a really desperate call and I think we're going to need that level of desperation for this year How's it going on Austin I am joined by the show me the meaning dudes we've got Raymond. Everybody else going and we've got Michael Burns. Hey. Hi. Hi and this week we're. GonNa be talking about, I, mean, would you call this a classic the Charlie Kaufman? Jones classic being John Malkovich. This isn't a classic I. Don't know what it is. Yeah. It's definitely true. A mind bendy Ah mind-bending investigation that's for sure and this was actually the patron chosen. Film. So we put a poll out there on our Patriots on and we each selected to films and we put it out to you all and the votes came in and it was a tight race. It was a really tight race. It was actually kind of the dark horse that came up in the final. Few minutes or whatever, and it beat out the death of stolen. So let's go over real quick what the results of the poll were so Raymond chose the Bobby Duke and being John Malkovich the winner. And I feel like the Babu could be a good choice for a Halloween type of thing. So that's some point in the future maybe. All right Michael chose death of stolen and Dick Johnson is dead. Yes and I chose a nola homes and first reformed. All right. So the final results came in being John Malkovich obviously one death of Stalin was very close in second the Baba Duke was third. Enola. Holmes was fourth. I reformed was fifth and I'm sorry Michael. But Dick Johnson is dead. got like. Whatsoever and. I'm glad it didn't I watched it last night. I, think it would have been a weird hang so. All things have worked out the way they are supposed to think, yeah, I wonder if we can get a little bit of a read on our on our patrons on our followers by this, you know like, what does it say that the top two were stolen and being John Malkovich they're both smart quickie kind of like analyses of culture and humanity and stuff like maybe that just means that our our peeps are super smart. Yeah. They're both very wise cracking movies if I can use that moniker scripture here you know. They both do interesting things with filmmaking they. Both explore ideas at multiple levels. And they both have some really classic character actor performances in them as well. Yeah totally. Totally. Totally totally. All right. So before we get into the recap, let's go round and just do first impressions. What was it like the first time you saw this film if you can remember it then what was it like to revisit it? Let's start with Raymond Oh. Sure. I'm a big Fan of this movie I think it's kind of one of those movies. That's kind of the platonic ideal for a show like this that is both really entertaining and rich with a lot of philosophical subtext and. There's a whole lot to pick apart and I saw this at first in high school. When I went through sort of a Charlie Kaufman kick after seeing attornal sunshine and check this out and add up. and. There's really nobody else liked him as a screenwriter and I know you'll have the opportunity to talk about his most recent film and Ryan and Jerry went crazy about it but it. Also is a pretty interesting picture. Especially, if you've if you've read the book, it's based on its beat for beat the plot of the book, but entirely different and I think only Charlie Kaufman can do something like that. He can take something..

Ava Movie Review : Jessica Chastain powers this moderately thrilling assassin saga

"I'm Madeleine brand. I am ready to review some films of two of my favorite favorite critics and two of my favorite humans all time alongside early and Dave White film critics for the rap and host of the podcast, Linoleum knife. How you guys Hello. All right. Let's talk first about Eva. Jessica Chastain stars as international assassin, but a job goes wrong. Here is some of the trailer. I know you like Eva. She's a liability. No, she's best to breathe. I recruited her trainers talking She's always been jukes favor, but she's a loose cannon and dangerous of the organization. Alonzo. What did you think so? Yeah, this is, you know, typical international assassin and runs afoul of the corporation. And of course, she must be closed. Um, why is it that only the female international assassins also have family issues, whereas the male international assassins were always completely cut off from their own feelings and from their own families of their own pasts and all that stuff. Really The most interesting stuff about Eva is that a bow, played by Jessica Chastain comes home to Boston, where she has to confront her fractured relationships with her sister, played by just Wexler and her mother, played by Gina Davis. On Of course, Gina Davis was an international female assassin in the long kiss. Good night, so that's a nice little Bow on this, and the scenes between Gina Davis and Jessica Chastain are so crackling in a Confrontational, dysfunctional family cannot away that you kind of wish this had been a confrontational, dysfunctional family movie and not international Super Assasin movie. But I mean, it's a lot of that movie is has been made. It's called What ever happened to Baby Jane? Good points, But I mean, you know the The pieces in this are not bad, like the actual international Super assassin scenes are pretty well done. There's some pretty good action sequences. Maybe Not in like an atomic blonde kind of way. But still like when. When Jessica Chastain gets into a scrap with Colin Farrell or, you know, I mean, John Malkovich even gets into some violence in this movie. Those scenes are kind of fun, but then you gotta shift gears into Ava and her addictions and her family stuff, and it's like The movie is in all the lanes and it doesn't really ever quite nail any of them. So I maybe wish they had. They had taken off one piece of jewelry before leaving the house, you know, either lose one of reds here, Dave. Moments of cool, stabbing and kicking. Alleviating boredom. Unfortunately, they missed this golden opportunity to allow Gina Davis To be revealed. To still be her long kiss Goodnight character, passing the mantle of super assassin. Down to her daughter that they did They do this. They did not do this. Unfortunately, if you're going to make a movie with a plot, as wrote, and by the numbers as this You got to juice it up somehow, You know, it's not. It's not enough that the Jessica Chastain isn't a long red gown. You know, stabbing and kicking and shooting. Okay,

"As the brand new streaming series space forces about to blast off that's right this star Steve Carell and it's created by Carell and Greg Daniels who is best known for doing the office the two of them of course work together and that for many many years big popular show this one is a Netflix series and like you said it's taking off this Friday it's about the creation of the space force which is a real thing and we've got that actually happening right now and it's a more of a workplace comedy from the general's point of view has been put in charge of it that being corral potus once complete space dominance to that end the president is creating a new bridge space force which mark will run what overall the story is interesting I'm curious to see where they're trying to go with it because that one hand they're trying to make a kind of this absurdity but on the other hand there really trying to make this destroyer of out this general who finally gets his chance to run something and and he's handed something that he really doesn't want to do it he's gonna find a way to make it work hi it has had some some very funny moments especially because of the acting I really want to see where they go with season two because they could this could blossom like the office but it could also please allow ten you know crashed upon landing yeah you know it's got that deadpan humor the kind of thing that Steve Carell is able to do very very dead pan humor how does that how's that gonna hold up episode after episode well I think that's the part that works that's I think what made the office work so well and and he's he's up against like John Malkovich's his foil it and and that that really was the two of them have great chemistry I was amazed scene after scene they trot out in every scene another new character actors some of television's best character actors on this so that makes it look pretty interesting all right how many how many retro rockets do we give space force I'm going to give it three and a half retro rockets but they're firing on all cylinders and that's good because I I I think this has a lot of potential which is kind of still has to fight to find its

"A trainer partying like it's nineteen ninety one eight bolt she's got a two and a half lake lead dawn the destroyer next toward the inside what over with Mark Holiday from blue devils been a client of mine for years and we just try to make a game plan where we figured we'd cut it back and trying to make her a champion in the sprint division just seemed like chasing midnight these you might be a tough ordeal for her we had always Kinda were skeptical about how far she wanted to go even though she had won the Royal Delta ongoing amount sixteenth earl the year before last when she was second in the gopher one going mile just seemed like a good plan to just regroup she got a little light after the midnight race to wait for the Ballerina and try to win that game one which turned out great and then it's actually not ten weeks I was wrestling with that but I decided to go ahead and run the gallant bloom on September twenty second I got the I put she also won so now I got the two races back since the Phipps and I'm sitting ready to go five and a half weeks into the British top actually speaking of midnight zoo you know we mentioned in our open that your family has a history of running a really good horse against a potential legend for speaking about your grandfather Pancho Martin who had oh really good three year old named Sham back nineteen seventy-three but that was not the right year to have a really good three-year-old how much did that enter your mind when you decided to shorten up come down instead of knocking heads with midnight bees again I never really think about things in the past I mean I know my grandfather was a great trainer and that was a great horse and he ran against probably one of the greatest sources that ever lived but I just kind of try to do my own thing just worry about my horse and we're just trying to make the best game plan to give her a chance of success and to win a grade one and we just thought that Mitt I tease you and a late and some of the older fillies like a really strong division not that the sprint division having to run against co Pepsi the test and some other great vilis it's not it's not going to be easy but we just all got together and we just talked about cutting her back you know she had been brilliant in the distaff going seventy eight just started give us a chance to make regret one winter which has been always the goal 'cause we always believed in our hearts that she had that kind of brilliant ability in that kind of talent and they just that's just the way just turned out for us the time you know we were we were always debating you know what her best distances and this race was great and up to a mile it seemed like up to a one turn would be her game really oh by the way your grandfather portrayed as something of a foolish villain in the movie secretariat with Diane Lane and John Malkovich I know 'cause I was there for some of the filming of the scenes it didn't mention in the movie that he led the trainer standings in New York for ten straight years and entered the hall of fame in Nineteen eighty-one what did you think of his portrayal by Nestor Serrano I thought it was an interesting movie to say the least I brought him to see it and obviously he wasn't too pleased wasn't an accurate portrayal anybody that knows my grandfather knows that he was a gentleman and a lot of those things never happened with him screaming anybody I think he said he met Mrs Tweedy used to call her by her maiden name the day of the Derby she said hi Mr Martin can I say hi to sham and wish you luck inch and he took her over to t- his horse and exchange pleasantries and they wished each other luck and that was about the extent of his interaction with petty Chinnery so he thought it was quite amusing but like I explained to him it's Disney and somebody has to be the villain and they chose you and he said to me you know he was about eighty six years old and he said is there anything I can do I said well if you still have about twenty unless you could sue Disney but other than that just sit back and enjoy the movie so I don't think he really enjoyed the movie too much but it is what it is he had a great horse and if it wasn't for secretary how people theorize you know he broke the record in defeat and the Derby and preakness and maybe could be the triple crown winner he got hurt chasing him in the Belmont and then he still was syndicated for two and a half million in dollars which wasn't too shabby back in nineteen seventy three was a great horse in a great story and you know it's like having you know going up against Michael Jordan and a championship game and scoring eighty and Jordan's going one hundred and just coming up a little short trainer Carlos Martin joining us here on in the gate will send out come dancing in the Breeders Cup Filly Mayor Sprint you obviously come from a family of six zestful trainers including your Dad Jose who trained groovy I mean this is a business built on pedigrees so because of that I would think clients would have come flocking so you what made it takes so long for you to get back to this top level of competition I'm not sure I think we had a little rough patch with Mr Laser was my main client and backwards my dad got sick in two thousand six I had the the cancer Starting two thousand and two and then I unfortunately lost him in two thousand six we always had a close working relationship with Mr Lewis on and I kinda got comfortable in the state of being kind of a private trainer for him until he passed away about eight years ago and you know people sometimes they see you with one outfit and you know there was a lot if I think maybe just thought that was just him and me I was beholden to him and a lot of ways you know he was like a mentor to me with my father my grandfather of course and I think that kind of turns people off you know I had kind of a private job with him until he passed in two thousand eleven pretty much you know so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it I know when when he passed away it was quite an awakening to be a public trainer again and start almost from scratch about seven years ago and I'm so grateful that Mark Blue Devil and a couple of other clients like Matt Scherer on Mr and Mrs Collins a really good team now some really great people that have passion for the sport and really take the Horse I they're kind of the owners I have now say a little bit of a throwback because they really art patient with me as far as they want the best for the horse and I know there's a lot of pressure to do things right now especially when you spend a lot of money for but I'm very fortunate and blessed able to get back on our feet we went down from forty horses when Mr Lizard passed away in two thousand eleven to probably about five horses so we've called our way back and you know about the opportunity to win it Breeders Cup would be really really sensational way to finish the year and oblique grew almost to two million earnings for this year with a relatively small stable of twenty five sources I think he's a good accomplishment so I'm happy where I'm

"Kind of satisfaction so you think about craig in lahti both the people we meet the beginning of the film. They're both kind of powerless. They're both unsatisfied in their lives. You could say the unsatisfied creatively both of them because i'm stretching the term creatively here a little bit but think about craig not being able to be the puppeteer genius. The world won't let him be that puppeteer genius that he clearly feels he is he has that line. I feel i suffer. All i ask in. Return is the opportunity to do my work and they won't allow it. They won't allow it as if there really are these forces out there keeping him from his true calling which really isn't the case at all and for lahti audie she at least at one point expresses that desire to want to have a baby she wants to create two and is at least in some part dependent on craig in order are to make that happen and isn't able to bring that to fruition either maxine comes along and that that merger of maxine and malkovich when that that becomes what connects craig lodhi to malkovich that empowers both of them it gives them both a different path they see for our happiness and even though it's not as initial he really just wants to go to bed at first with catherine keener maxine character but he does eventually get to achieve artistic goals as well through her malkovich and he's doing it by literally controlling malkovich. He's pulling the strings on the puppets. He's bending them to his will and then we see him. Actually pulling malkovich's strings and maxine of course is pulling both craig strings again it gets back to that scene where she's stuck in the the middle and she is just living off of the feeling that vibe both of them are giving off to her her great line the comes later after craig has started to be able able to actually manipulate malkovich and the horror of malkovich losing complete control <hes> disruptions of the movie that your mind kind of breaks a second honiara whoa we're not only in here but now we're able to control tried also completely forgotten about remember her line where she so gidley says. Let's have sex on this table. Let's have sex on his table and make them eat. An omelette off of it and malkovich says no the real malkovich. Lets out this big yelp of no. I don't i think in that moment we're supposed to believe she's all sexually excited because she loves having sex with physically john malkovich nor emotionally psychologically gigli craig inside of malkovich's body..

"Filmmaker. I think the last thing is. What is it? The article experience is what is the definition of it? Now is it five hundred people in the theater is it a hundred is it fifty is a two people on a Friday night in front of a flat screen to me. It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it. Then if you're listening, it was a really well spent two years, it's an incredible piece Patricia and Paul and Benito these performances are one of the writing was great to six six or seven parts on the did you see it? I did on the fifth or sixth episode when that thing happens, and you all my God, this was because it structurally, so brilliant to put that they're not in the front where it would have so differently affect. The peace, and I would have been so proud to do that piece. I thought it was remarkable. That's a great answer. I had so much fun watching Belva bus ident-. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate.

"It's terrifying, but they're amazing all. So for those who haven't seen the, do you wanna give so for for those who haven't seen it? Just why we are gonna talk about the plot and I do I will throw it. I recommend seeing if we'll talk about whether we thought it was enjoyable experience like I would recommend seeing down just in general just because it's fascinating, but would you feel comfortable giving a synopsis of what happens in this. Sure. I would say in unhappy couple both trying to make each other happy, but nothing able to one. Finally, one was the upper tier John John Cusack, John Cusack of teary decided to get a regular office job where he falls in love with his youthful woman pretty much on onsite and her character wasn't really developed back raise and other weather who loved his girl. Feelings about Maxine. Bulls in level next scene and together they thought they wanna finding portal actives hatched Lord office of and the portal essentially sucks you into John Malkovich ins monster to end. You see things from his eyes until point of view, and then it the total time of stumps you out in the middle of of one hundred major yet. I don't know why John Malkovich was really can be the end of my brain, not being the portal out, not be jersey. Like I told mine would be like. Tell or not. Jersey time. I, I feel like part of that was just so that they could make sure that the characters to get back to you. Yet. So. Shove so that you made a eventually. These two people are charging other people talking clients to come in and go through the portal, two hundred dollars to be exit, your wife for fifteen minutes and be John Malkovich, and then against eventually. Data's on. Take over John, not vicious. Hold me. Like eventually, John cusak starts for Saint John Malkovich to save things that he wants to wish freaks out job out of that he is not happy. I felt for John Malkovich spoke much in this movie and particularly will kind of get to this Maxine was played by one of the haircuts was awesome. Get out and now seem get out. I'm like, I can't look at this movie the same way. This is an horrifying movement. That's that's what I did not. I was thinking a lot about get out any in. Obviously it was at least twenty years ago dead on ninety nine I think was here on the end to go to like I didn't tuned together balancing hydros for the whole time. I was like, allow get out, definitely got a lot of its ideas from being John Malkovich of your get out. Then I would say, instantly watch us move and you'll see the parallels now even more, but it's a Mac OS, but yet. What is it? Actually, I looked it up before. I can't remember because I see her in a lot of things just wonderful. I'm gonna look it up right now while he talks release antastic in both shelves. But if you're a fan of Gadot I'll definitely suggests watching because it has strong connections there. Yeah, yeah. So the reason that we are talking about this show on earn with the reason we're talking about being John Malkovich on this show is because there's a character body who's played by Cameron Diaz who is unrecognized muggings on. Apparently they gave a the director whose name completely forgetting spike Jones cycle who they gave psych Jones complete, like, hey, we don't know what to do in this character. Sue, just whatever it's not specifically described. So she's got frizzy hair..

"So I'm transfers, you can be transferred. Sometimes the sh the show, Gary puncture need some five actual. Thank so thank you. Thank you for that actually own legend. I think like what we have to learn, I think that you know, if you don't want to kick the person, you were five years ago on the fates, then you're not growing enough of the person. You know, hopefully we won't regret last year's. Trust and with language in people that are constantly changing and shifting. It is something that we have to kind of keep in check one percent in sometimes you release a thing like that. You maybe don't like how you raise the thing and they'll help you never know. Need to make sure that I'm next thing this thing moving forward that I think I'll, yeah, I would not some great discussions. My my opinion on hiring train factors were exclusively friends roles in method. I was unprepared change that query, but like my Molly ITO, I give up that might not be scared of Acton transforming to to play. If there's, you know a role them in the past to play them, the enemy acid Frenchwomen Nacchio uncomfortable that they might go into record destroy thing on knowledge ING, like make of give him a carton. They know it's coming in, they have scripted hand then. Them the option. Yeah. Now. Yeah. So today we're talking about being John Malkovich. I got her low on our Chad. Hello, Melissa. So that's a being John Malkovich. I watched this on comedy central years and years ago, like growing up like in mckees interrupted any as comedy, like bizarre. But yeah, I guess it would be combination. Yeah, it's it's kind of comedy because it's so absurd that you're kind of laughing because you're not white following what's so. And there are some things that I'm no makes sense. The don't like they take it just seriously enough yet that it's even the most ridiculous things like the fact that they're on a Florida that half the size. I have other floors because I think of like like running like the Bill that you didn't that like the tiger they belived higher office building half the size, like and the extra immediately twenty. Five hours a day in your old walk in on chill out, knowledge. Before the movie came out. If I was an extra they're, they're like, oh my God. I noted what this movie is to keep like walking by. And over. Like an you. Look actors were doing different things like some were just doing the normal. This one guy that was just doing this the entire time of lines rate. I live commentary. It was, I don't. I mean, how do you feel that he really like? What do you think that significant of the floor was in the moody by saying. I think they there were some elements that they just wanted to make the audience not necessarily uncomfortable, but thank like this guy doesn't really want this job like they end. So I think about party. Nate. I think part of it was like building up this idea that he wanted to be someone else and it's not an he necessarily wanted to someone else as much as he could be where he worry. Yeah, and so I think that was a part of it. There's probably other like the director in Renier are very tight lipped about their symbolism live, aided, but they gotta any been bugging some of the reviews that are John Malkovich heads, say what he thinks the movie was out, but they, they need the choice not to necessarily say why the navy decisions they did I, I was, you know, average, I really like athletic on thinking, maybe it can represent. That we only own half of our minds. We only own Hafer stays while you're station. This world isn't hurry hours and you can easily be influenced against from outside forces such as Puerto. And in that you didn't in the only half yourself. And I think that that could maybe be some kind of love that, like really made me have to think what the hell does that mean? And maybe it's maybe it's the. Yeah, it's only part of a person if you don't joy your jaw. Yes. The movie start? Well, I guess that's how it started with the near help achieve that are amazing..
