"mark harris" Discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"In the last segment, I talked about how the Supreme Court might be taking the view that one can't do very much about the past election, but the court might take steps to tighten up the process, bring it more in line with the constitution for the 2024 election. But I think that we shouldn't take the view that 2020 is in the rearview mirror and that somehow this is something that we need to quote move on from. Yes, in the end, we do have to move on, but I think we don't want to move on without some reckoning of what happened in 2020. And I came to this view really not initially, but after I did all the work I did both to do the movie 2000 meals and the accompanying book, which by the way comes out at the end of August, you can pre order it now on Amazon, it's called well. You guessed it. 2000 meals, but there's a little tag that says the full story why because there's going to be more in the book than there was in the movie. Now, initially when I began work, went through the vote, Debbie and I did. I took the view that look, we want to make a movie that's going to tell the truth, about 2020, and we want to try to fix things in the future, but it never crossed my mind that we want to do anything about 2020 itself. And yet, the more I dug into it, the more I realized, well, if a grievous injustice has been done, then you can't simply quote move on. Think about I mentioned this example other times the Tour de France. If Lance Armstrong cheated 7 or 8 times to win, she did during the Olympics. Well, I mean, don't you take away the guy's medals? You just say, let's fix the Tour de France for the next round, so it doesn't happen again, let line scores have his glory. No, we want to deprive him of the fruit of the cheating.
Understanding the But-For Principle of Election Fraud
"Generally in discussing the subject of order fraud. Courts adopt a principle that is called the butt for principle. And the butt four principles simply says, but for this fraud, would the election outcome have been different. That becomes a critical question. So for example, if the fraud is minor and wouldn't have made a difference, even if it could be proved, courts are likely to say, well, it's moot. It doesn't really matter. Even if this were true, it would not have changed the outcome of the election. But this is not what we're dealing with in 2000 meals because the claim is advanced in the movie with a lot of supporting evidence that we are talking about and enormous magnitude of a fraud. So the question is, when that's the case, when you can meet the butt force standard. Canon election result be overturned? Well, as it turns out, the answer to that question is obviously yes. In 2018, an election was overturned. In North Carolina. Now, interestingly in that case, which by the way is mentioned in the movie, the fraud was on behalf of a Republican candidate. It was done by a democratic operative, the fraud was actually organized by a guy named McRae Dallas, a guy recently died, the late mcgray Dallas. And this is a guy who worked for kind of a black left wing group called the bladen improvement association, and he learned all his tactics of ballot trafficking and being guys and are doing all kinds of shenanigans. He learned it from the Democrats, but then he had a fight with them, he broke with them, they refused to hire him, something like that, so he took his services to a Republican candidate Mark Harris. And that then resulted in Harris winning the election narrowly, but when there was an investigation that were admissions that came out of that and the election result was overturned. Overturned by the way, not by a court, but by the elections board. And then there was a new election, Harris decided not to run again. Another guy named Dan bishop ran on the Republican ticket. He won the election, and so that's what happened. But the reason I mention all this is because it simply doesn't follow that we are stuck with a kind of fade accomplish a done deal that somehow because it's happened, nothing can be done. It's not

"We got more. We got more. That was excellent, chitchat. I think people can't wait to be able to use these conversation openers. Straight ahead, we have morons in the news. A gentleman thought he needed a battery and when I tell you where and what you're going to be screaming, sir, you are not the energizer bunny. It's Bobby cherry. We've got them. Some hope. With bob. I'm sherry. You're a more. It's more on the news. This first moron in the news story is almost hard to believe because the person was so arrogant in asking for so much. Last spring, senator Mark Harris, who was a Republican from soda springs, Idaho, and I just love that name. Mark Harris received an invoice from a St. Louis base company, industries. LLC. And they asked him to pay $480 million for IP targeting and general caucus retention work for the Idaho GOP majority leadership committee. But Harris never agreed to purchase any goods or services from Cara bell, who I think we need to call clarabelle, according to the Idaho office attorney general. Last summer, the collection agency alerted Harris and attorney general Lawrence Weston and sued karabel, the lawsuit alleges karabel violated the Ohio consumer protection at blah blah blah. The judgment said you got to pay you got to pay these people $11,000. I only bring this story up to say who in the world would believe that a bill came in for $480 million. That it's almost a half a $1 billion for some targeting IP targeting. What are you kidding me? I don't even like I don't even understand a lot of what you just said, but. I know. Anybody that gets a bill for half a $1 billion has to know songs now. You gotta call somebody, if they had sent the bill for, let's say, a 150,000. Okay, you know, you know, he's got this war chest for politics and blah blah blah. You know, you might be able to do something $480 million. This is someone who misunderstood the saying go big or go home. A lot easier chance of ripping this guy off for a hundred grand than you did for half a billion. I know. Our fine criminals are just not putting in the legwork. Today's morning of the day comes to us out of Tehran, and I'm just going to warn you this is an extremely uncomfortable story. And he was an extremely uncomfortable man. He's 49 years old. He went to the hospital in Tehran. And he told the doctors that he had a double-A battery lodged in his member and that it had been stuck there for 24 hours and that he was in quite a bit of pain. He did not explain why he shoved a double-A battery down in there. And I swear to God you can never lay your hands on one when the remote goes dead. Now I know why. He did not explain why he had done that. He had no history of mental illness, doctors were able to, and this is an uncomfortable description. Fry the battery out. They pride the battery out, but then a few months later, he came back to the hospital and said, hi, it's, you know, it's me again. It's kind of hurts when a pain I'm having a hard time. So doctors, they went ahead and had a look and here's what they learned. Except we think that the chemicals inside the battery may have done some damage to refresh. Which is another really good and important reason why y'all do not need to be stuffing a battery into that thing. So here's what they had to do. They had to cut open his mouth and then wait, wait, wait, then they had to get a skin graft from his ends the inside of his cheeks and his lips to fix his urethra. He ended up in the hospital for three weeks. Good lord. You know what? Why didn't you use a triple-A? That's what I would have done. Because he got overconfident, you know. Yeah, well, that's true. So that's right. In the medical report, they actually said the doctors in Tehran said this, quote, yes, visiting a doctor can be unpleasant and the patient may be ashamed of it, but eventually they will have to visit the doctor when they stuff batteries into their. Delay in visiting the doctor could lead to gangrene, and of course then, you know, he'd have to have an amputated. They speculated in the medical report as to why the battery was there, saying, quote, there are several reasons for why you might insert a battery. Including psychiatric illness, intoxication, and perceived contraception. Y'all. Even the energizing. Long-lasting energizer batteries keep going and going. Yeah. Yeah. Well. I know you're going to want to see, I know you're going to want to see more incredible x-rays. We're going to post it on our Facebook. And let this be a lesson to each and every one of you that's going, gosh, you know, there's just nothing to do tonight. Maybe I'll show the battery there. Should they not have HIPAA rules there? Apparently not. That is something. If you're worried about maybe you're drinking too much at least you can use this as an excuse I've never done that.

"Website christian. Jared dot com wonderful and in the ark of the life of mark harris which we've shared at the top of the show. He went from really legendary party. Animal to hyper conscientious. Attorney to hyper conscientious entrepreneur and now a couple of decades later. He's having trouble releasing some of that hyper conscientiousness and he misses some of his past self. Which i think is so interesting. Do you have any advice for him. So i i would recommend a few things of so walk. The experience of the emotional eight we is is shown to increase openness to experience so that could be those kind of when you experienced that emotion you feel small it makes you feel kind of small relative to the ground this of the universe and everything so watching nature documentary spending time in nature taking hikes in the wilderness would be one way other studies suggest mostly yourself in culture already does help to boost openness to experience so reading traveling Going to the opera exposing yourself to the unfamiliar and neuroticism. Well you touch and some of those sort of therapeutic techniques. A another thing is kind of seeking out those kind of peak experiences in life. It doesn't have to be the shays climbing to the top mountain but it doesn't have to be pushing yourself to the limits doing something where you refill challenged stretched that change your perspective in life. It could be taking. It could be having psychedelic trip another. I'm recommending there for everybody but those those kind of peak experiences out of the ordinary experiences. Actually can. it could be going a living. I mean difficult and panic but it could be going spending a little bit of time living abroad these kinds of things that they us they recalibrate on minds of brains. He's like a reset and that's shown to low low into autism. So maybe there's something you friend could try well christian thank you so much. Thank you for taking time out of editing magazines and enjoying the english countryside raising your miniature schnauzer to be with us today we so enjoy. The conversation elliott was It was my pleasure rufus and it's great to meet you and chat. Thank you very much a few days. After i spoke with christian i called up my friend mark to tell him what i learned so mark. We've discussed your predicament with christian. And he seems to think that you might be a little bit in iraq. What do you think about that. Do you feel neurotic. I might be click to say no. But i actually think it is kind of a feature of this personality that i've developed and specifically like especially as it relates to this just obsessive need to be hyper productive all the time i mean. I think you know this about me but i just i have so many to do lists. I've had to develop a system such that all my to do list can talk to one another. I have a master. And then i have all these different to do list organized by categories. And so i don't know at what point do you cross into neuroticism. I'm not sure. But what is the average number of things on a normal person's to do list. Because for me i probably have over one hundred things on my to do list name one time. Well i think maybe what we need to do is just modify some of the things that are on your to do this christian tells us that he seems to think you could benefit for more openness to experience reminders of the grand of the universe. A manga suggestions mark was hiking. I think you already. You're already hikers. I you might have that covered reading. I know you to be a reader going to the opera now that that might be a fresh one for you. That's when treatment. I haven't tried right. Said we could you might. You might deserve a place somewhere in the nineties on one of your half dozen to-do list. He was somewhat hesitant about recommending a psychedelic trip as a my. This is a family podcast. But that was mentioned. I think international travels probably an easy sell that i had the different suggestion. Mark which is if this process of developing a set of habits and repeating them with great fidelity over many years resulted in some new personality traits that became semi-permanent. Maybe this solution to modifying. That is to develop a new set of habits. A new set of irresponsible and spontaneous and celebrate tori and festive and joyous and in the moment habits. The a new set of behaviors. That if we repeat these these new habits mark for a couple of decades. I think that that that could become a new full reversion to the in the moment marquez and i volunteer myself to be your partner in crime i rivers i. I couldn't imagine a more capable coach and mentor and partner now than yourself and it sounds good to me it whether it takes her not. It'll probably resulted some short-term joy and and it does take it could be dangerous because at the very least we've learned how hard it is to undo habits. once their well formed deeply grooved absolutely feels like full circle. mark.

Oh people think that he made that appearance on cocaine and if you listen to it again if you were to listen to it again in here the giggles and the fits in the starts that did not sound like somebody who was any realm of sober or had good judgment about.

Yup washington no schubert has gotten has Let's see attempted to mess up international affairs with a giant jellyfish. He has tried to do mind control of the world with a statue he's stolen Tried to salvage one of their submarines. I would swear my recollection is that he the cetacean in the pilot was his yeah and that he had salvaged the navy submarine. Because that's what he was. He was a salvage operation. Yeah that's what i when. I watched the episode. It's like oh. I got it. He he basically took that ship along with the pilot. The may the pilot slave. And then you just use the sub. No i know. i don't think so. I know the sedation is his because even the base was was like his. It's the same shots. Yeah yeah in. And he salvaged the navy. Fear that's what he was doing. He was stealing other people ships with it so anyway. The point is is that somehow the pilot and the second or third pilot. I think the second pilot. Suddenly the citation became Mark harris ship and now schubert somehow has a cruddy leftover world war two sub that they could only paint pink.

Yeah to append to put appendices on my sentences and words and the food you eat yes I noticed when mark was swimming. He did not actually spread his fingers and make use of the webbing is that because the appliances wouldn't stay in his hands the ripped off the force the water. But we didn't even think about it.

This was like this is like the height. I feel like of warranting though. Globally and i would you know most of them. I would watch with my family with this one. I remember very vividly watching by myself. i wasn't at at the time or anything like that and i love the movie when i was that age but there was something about it that i felt like i could almost never returned to it and i honestly cannot articulate. Why so when you told me about the series. I was like okay. This is this is my opportunity. And it was completely different from what i remembered and it was particularly. I was very moved in a surprising way by the beginning. Because i didn't just didn't click. I guess when you're that age it like you have a half hour of a movie of just two guys like very quietly getting to know each other and yeah i guess we'll start there but it was. I was very not surprisingly moved by revisiting it but it has been a long time so it was kind of the quietness of the movie that that surprises. Second i mean like a we. Don't get major studio movies like this much at all anymore. But i think the the kind of revolutionary -ness of the way they set up this relationship. I think sex audi more the more you know about film right. Yeah exactly i mean. My relationship to film completely changed. And i've seen a lot of queer movies since i saw this one which was probably my first at. I think it holds up in a surprising way because movies of this scale that get this kind of awards attention and commercial attention. Even there haven't been very many movies I don't think any of had as much oscar success as this one i mean. Let's you can't something like call me by your name. And even then i wasn't in the running for best picture in the way this one was so Yeah it was. It was a strange experience to to realize that the the degree to which it held up in that respect one of the people texting us text. Morris smith i asked if we see connection between this and carol which was another kind of famous oscar. Underperformer like mountain obvious was the best pitcher front running until last a crash. We'll talk about that for sure I think they're they're pretty different movies. I think although they obviously have a lot of similarities i think carol was much less successful with the oscars. Even the brokeback mountain. But i do think there is. You know if. You're if you're looking for like unexamined homophobia in this china awards thing. I think those are two interesting examples to look at. Yeah i remember a couple months ago. Mark harris had tweeted just lgbtq representation at the oscars is really finicky. And it's very low and it's not given necessarily a lot of attention. So i i do see a parallel with carol. It was a movie that i think people were surprised wasn't nominated for best picture in the same way people were. Maybe surprised brokeback didn't win. Best picture and it did feel related to it being a really. That was a very queer film the texture of it. The filmmaking Todd haynes given it his all they're definitely felt related in a different kind of way. But i do see a parallel. They're just broadly with this ongoing narrative. Yeah chris you came on a few weeks ago and talked about. Chicago is your kind of oscar. Radicalization moments so. I'm assuming that when brokeback mountain came in came out. You are all in on on the oscar narrative for this. Yeah i mean. I had a similar similar experience david through tormenting but through physical players of watching it like you know in my early teens or twelve thirteen and being really not really understanding all of it for sure and i think that's from rewatching this week. It was a lot of gaps in my. I've watched a couple of times at different stages of my life. I think every time. I see something else but i remember being so in and so obsessed with also the female performances this time for me the really the female performances stuck out. 'cause i was never i was not paying attention when i was twelve when i watched it when i was twenty was not pay attention to that necessarily as well but anne hathaway and michelle williams. Really do some incredible incredible work in the film and have really really sort of a be hard line to walk. I was talking to katie about anne. Hathaway phone call seeing is excellent. It's so difficult. And she's so cold but she emotional. She's wearing that big blonde way. It just really it just. It's it's really excellent so yeah. I think it's one of those movies that you know. I think a lot of queer kids in queer or queer. Now millennials watched in sort of the cover of night and didn't really talk about it to anyone and just sort of like had it and then maybe have not sort of returned to it or they were quite often because it's so special to them they hold it so dear But i was more of a david. And i had really watched it. I watched it. I think once before this in my early twenty s and it really still hit but it hit different. I will say also so sad movie tv visit like it just like rings you out. In this way that it's it's it's like you do have to kind of like brace yourself to go back into. This movie is quite long and It's it's it's slow it really does sort of take. Its time in a way that like in our you know. Action franchise f nine world. We don't allow movies to sort of do and he more which i think it which is deeply upsetting and sad to me so the fact that we do sort of. Have you know thirty minutes. Almost utter silence. They barely speak for the first forty two minutes of the movie. There was something really magical and really really special and sort of old old..

I mean, this guy had a full life. He passed away in 2014. So we welcome marks of the program. What was it about Nichols that you decided? Well, here's a guy we need to write a book about Well, as you just said. There's really no one like him. I mean, if you direct movies for 50 years, that means you have a pretty interesting career. And if it's the same time you're directing, uh, everything from the odd couple to Spamalot on stage for 50 years, then you're pretty unique. And if that is all preceded by a really big career as Um, a performer as a comic who changed the face of comedy. Then you know you have a life that I think is really worth all the work it takes to do a book. You know, Mark, I knew Mike. Just a little bit always admired him. But you know, the public persona was here's this guy tremendous success. Very intelligent, dapper, elegant. Married to Diane Sawyer seem to have the perfect life. But what your book makes clear is that behind that facade, he was a man who battled very seriously with depression. What what would bring that on its life? Yeah, That was maybe the best surprise to me and doing the research for the book Because at the time that I knew Mike, he was in a really settled happy place in his life. Um, and I didn't realize how hard one that was on, you know, it's hard to know what brings on depression. Maybe there's a genetic component, but he certainly had a really rough start in life. He was He was an immigrant. He and his little brother and their family. You know their parents came from Berlin. Um, just before World War two. Mike was hairless because of Ah, childhood reaction to Ah, vaccination, so he looked different, so he was teased and bullied on Bet's a pretty rough start. Now Mike Nichols directed.

"The striking creative force from his time and the Chicago improv stage with his partner, Elaine May, as in their classic funeral home sketch. Would you be interested in some extras for the loved one? What kind of extras? Well, how about a casket? It. Isn't that included in the funeral? No, his incisive powers of observation were sharpened by his experience as an outsider. Eight year old German boy who had to flee Nazism developed a rare allergic reaction that marked him for life. He was left hairless and his father died. When he was just 12 Mike Nichols would grow up to become a true American glitterati Direct Neil Simon and Chekhov plays and breakthrough films like Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf? Carnal knowledge. And, of course, the graduate. Mrs Robinson. You're trying to seduce me, aren't you? Mark Harris has now written a milestone. New biography Mike Nichols, a life Mark Harris joins us from New York. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you for having me. You knew Mike Nichols and in particular and personal way, didn't you? I did in 2001. He started working with my husband, Tony Kushner on the HBO adaptation of Angels in America. So that was the first time I ever met Mike. I think In fact, the first time I ever met Mike might have been on the set while he was working. What did you see in his life and art that made you want to tell his story? I was fascinated, of course, by the fact that from very humble origins, you know his his beginning as a refugee who was really ostracized by their kids because of the way he looked. He built this extraordinary career, but I was also fascinated by the uniqueness of that career. I mean, there's no other director. Who had parallel half century runs in movies and in theater and to have both of those careers proceeded by being a famous performing artist who really changed. Improvisational comedy really felt like a life. I would never get tired of exploring. Yeah, um, for someone who became known as a great actor's director. He didn't play well with others as a little boy, did he Well, he didn't. But I would say that was probably the fault of others more than of him. You know, Mike was bald as you said, because of this childhood reaction to a vaccine. He was an immigrant didn't sound like other kids didn't look like other kids. And so he really learned to watch and observe and try to figure out from looking at other kids. What an American voice sounded like And I think all those observational skills were really in a way his first improvisations. I mean, he was working out how to be a person. Median. Elaine may really changed his life, didn't it? It really did it was, you know, a lot of us have had the sort of magical you meet someone in college and your fast friends and it lasts forever. But Rarely on the level of Mike Nichols and Elaine May, they met each other when they were only 20 year. 21 just instantly connected both as people and as seen partners on by their their development of what really became a new style in American comedy started right then, when they were both barely out of their teens. Tell me about the graduate because I get the impression that the film wouldn't have been made without him. It was supposed to be Mike's first movie, not his second. It was a novel that Michael had his eye on as a movie for a long time. And then who's afraid of Virginia Woolf came along and the chance to direct Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor, but Graduate was not considered a huge film for Mike..
Snubs and surprises from this year's Golden Globe nominations
"The globe. Nominations happened and boy. They'd seemed a mess. How do you feel hi. How are you feeling about words and being back. I guess i'm glad to have award season back though isn't it. We can discuss specific to these nominations. I feel a little bit like charlie brown with the football because every year we talk about make fun of the hollywood foreign press association. And let's be clear we're going to continue to make fun of them. They are traditionally. It's a small group of international journalists. Who do not have a lot of renown really know outside of the fact that they are in this mysterious priests small group of people. They really like celebrities or their definition of another other thing. We'll discuss and their star fuckers and they give nominations to people they want in a room rather than a merit or at least our interpretation of merit. It seems like to win an award. You just have to go to as many parties as possible and then think the association from the stage. We know that there are always bad. Choices always mysterious traces. We're always like what is going on. Who are these people. Why do we do this. But i would say even for the hollywood foreign press association and even for a film here had some challenges aka pandemic theaters being close and far fewer films released unusual. These are real embarrassing. And i woke up just being like. Are you serious. We have to do this again. Like come on yeah i. It's hard to know we've gone through looking glass or not some of these. I think we're fairly standard and expected in their plenty of movies that i'm sure we'll be talking about when we get to the oscar nominations in a couple months but there were a handful of nominations. What what. I will generously called the surprises. That just took my breath away. That i i think even in my wildest dreams i could not have imagined the fbi concocting so. Let's just talk about them because this award show is happening really soon. It's february twenty eight. It's gonna be hosted by. Amy poehler and tina fey. It's going to be on nbc. And so we're going to actually having awards season to cover for real for real. I think we have to start with the jared leto nomination for the little things. This is probably the single biggest. W t.f of this collection and it's funny because when we talked about the little things on the show last week i think we both walked away from the little things thinking. Jared leto is pretty entertaining in it. And maybe rising to the challenge of this camp script and that being said i. I never considered him. A worthy report surprised to see this nomination. I enjoyed watching him in the little things in the context of the little things which was not a film that worked at all and so at least someone was doing something you know and i was talking with friends about it. There's like a really a nice like vintage. This is bad feeling to the little things that i found pretty comforting. You know it's like it's not like someone just made a twitter thread into a movie on an iphone and like someone wrote a script and they tried to do this old ninety staying. And then jared leto is doing the weird villain and having too much fun with it. It's like i know what's happening here even if it's not working and and i'm glad to have it back. I do not know that it needed to rise to the level of golden globes ovation especially because the golden globes supporting category does not differentiate between drama and comedy in some of the comedy. Nominations things get wild. But that's because you're kind of you're filling it out there some extra slots. A lot of people didn't get nominated in supporting actor. Jared leto like weird joke of serial killer. I think he's right. Can we talk about that for a second. This is dangerous rabbit hole to go down. I have no idea. The truth is. I don't know i think you're meant to believe that he did. Not if you haven't seen this movie. Sorry for spoiling it for you. It's unspoiled in many ways because it has an ambiguous ending of sword. I- i- i- jared. Leto obviously is has won an academy award. He is a very famous person has been celebrated. He's also like kind of a joke. You know like. I really enjoy him as a performer. A famous person. But he's kind of a joke. I mean he's he so Has all of the pretensions. And absurdity of the method actor who sort of you know pulling pranks on his cast members by trying to get into character and so outside and so masking his beauty all the time with these ridiculous roles you know like in the little things that character has like a is is fat and walks with a limp and why it's just pure actually affect nation and the role is actually affectation and the asia was impressed by that or impressed.

"I think we have to go and see twenty three right off. The top. I manage just told me that she read a thorough examination of the announcements made at this this weekend event. How are you feeling. Are you excited about the disney plus era upon us yeah but you have to do this. Julia minoshe from nonfiction chris farley watched non-fiction. You can just look blog. I clarified clarifying. I i think for disney and for me <hes> possibly in different ways you know disney has a strong brand as we know and it is quite articulate clearly articulated ticketed in this and i think that there will be many people including parents and star wars fans who have end marvel fans watch look forward to and i will be sending ending my streaming money elsewhere very interesting not surprising take from chris you are the coast of a podcast called the watch a long running podcast a hot. It looks closely a culture at large but particularly television a lot of t._v. Shows and disney plus. Here's my take on them. Don't care. I'd like to talk to you guys about the movies that were announced cheshire. Okay aside from the mandatory and i do care about this. Say which i care about all the there are two more stories memories t._v. shows. I'm sorry yet theoretically the mental learn is the only thing i have a clear percents of what it is and what it's going to be which actually does feel like the star wars show that we should have had like twenty five years ago very like <hes> grounded in the dirt small character look as opposed to the intergalactic battle kind of t._v. Show the other shows. I don't even know what are those shows. Isn't there a urine mcgregor. Obi obi wan the whole thing right. I think he's lovie wine. Even as i was saying it out loud i was like oh got him getting the names right. Am i getting the names right. Have you guys like a mandate. We're going to do a star wars episode so you should host and she she has ever told you. The story of this is a fun game to play. If you're like in a car and really board is you can ask you just tell you the plot of a movie a husband and i do this sometime and we maybe we should just do a podcast sometimes because it's really wild what people remember but famously i was asked to do the plot of star wars and i gave the entire plot with like intense analysis of the sexual tension between luke and leia and then also hans solo and the trash chute and all this stuff and just like did not mention the desktop the sexual tension between hansel and the trash chute. We are in russian. Oh yeah and i even got but at no point. Did i mention like the death star them blowing it up like the central plot of the movie just didn't exist in my brain spoiler. Sorry we have revealed views here officially that the death star is destroyed and star wars a new hope very sorry to everybody who hasn't seen episode four chris. Would you make the movie news non non non star wars edition so we got some moral news. We got a little look at the lady and the tramp live action yeah so for most of my life. Disney has been like a non factor <hes> it was a i never really grew up in disney household and a lot of these <hes> sort of legacy titles. Don't really mean a lot to me. I don't even know if i actually seen bambi like for instance. <hes> so a seminal event in movie history interesting to have the doorway into disney is marvel and star wars for me but now being introduced to this huge volume play and that that is kinda gonna come attendant with all this stuff and one of the things that we probably talk about when we get into the summer movie awards. That's been kind of confusing for me. This summer is having take things like aladdin seriously. You've been doing that no but it's like that takes up a lot of airspace. Have you seen either aladdin no yeah so you're not taking taking it serious. Oh i'm not taking it seriously but wouldn't you say that it plays a larger role in like pop culture in general because of the like the volume of the megaphone is that much louder pre everything builds everything else and now you've got these three things that disney legacy titles marvel and star wars say nothing of pixar and everything else that take up. I mean this is what you're saying a stranglehold on your brain. It's like sixty five percent of the airwaves man. It's true although in nineteen ninety-two aladdin was a big deal to so if you were hosting the watch which i don't know what would it have been call one thousand nine hundred smells like teen spirit yeah exactly if you were hosting smells like teen spirit the podcast you can get out of your windows media player six days to download it would still be forced to talk about and in some form or fashion but you're right the the the amount of mindshare that they have right now obviously is overwhelming and this is. I mentioned this biennial event. It doesn't happen every year the fact that it happened at this exact time while we're going through a me when wesley just had this conversation last week on the show we were like we are being choked out. You know brock listener has come to choke out with content. You guys get that referenced. I it's about wrestling. It's he wasn't in fighting with my family to today. Thank you to too much time on this podcast. I it is interesting like i could not help but see the announcement black panther too and just how far away that is. We are a thousand days away from black panther too. That's a long time. It's a it's become a cliche to say. We're all gonna be dead by then or the world will be on fire but it's possible that some things are significantly different culture at large a thousand days from now. We may not even have t._v.'s in one thousand days i don't. I don't know what's coming so to be planning that far ahead for something thing particularly something that is so anticipated yeah. I thought it was so strange. I thought it was almost like teasing away. That's funny because i had the opposite reaction which she's like this thing that we have been predicting for a long time which is disney as monopoly is here the this we have seen the realignment of the studios and the streaming services and kind of what the big names are going to be and we have been like well disney's just going to own everything and disney will have this movie and disney will have the streaming service and the men were in all of this i._p. And this was just the confirmation a certainty of okay they have consolidated. All of the i._t. Is together they have their distribution plan ready and disney plus and what what we expected to happen is going to happen and i have an easier time imagining how black panther too is going to fit into entertainment as we consume consumer than i do like basically any movie that a traditional movie studio is releasing or even most of the t._v. Shows on basic cable at this point but i think that the interesting thing that came out of some of these announcements between black panther being nine hundred days away and spider man being excommunicated from the is that there are a lot of people waiting on line. You know what i mean to get in to get their big screen time. There's a lotta characters. There's a lot of filmmakers producers who are all like so. This was a a huge hit and we've got to wait like four years and my guys gotta be in like a couple of thirty seconds spots and post credit sequences of the internals. That's you're telling me it's like that. I'm not single. Black panther would walk away from you. I don't think he michael jordan's. Not gonna get did going to do that but the spiderman thing i thought was indicative of indicative of so he being like let's go let's. Let's do another one most definitely but i think it's because while i think what you're saying is right that the playing field is kind of settled in a way that it's at least for the next next six to twelve months is going to be disney versus net flicks and then h._b._o. Max will come along and then you know. Universal will clarify what they're plays for the most part we we know what the short-term clarity around things but three years from now. I don't know if there's going to movie theaters close three years from now. I don't know if we will have have forty five hundred movie screens three years from now so getting that far ahead of ourselves. I think you're right chris that there's a desire to kind of plant flags. There's there has been mark. Harris has been writing about about this for coming up on ten years. Now this sort of like we plant our flag on a film that we don't even know what it is seven years ahead of time black panther too in particular those struck me as weird because it might be after the rise of skywalker. Maybe avatar to the most anticipated movie that exists that we're aware of world is that i am. I overstating it to say that will add. I think the avatar to is a good example. I mean not that. It's going to go black panthers. The wait between black panther one and two is nothing nothing resembling avatar in avatar too but it is indicative the fact that i think that like without seeing a single piece of footage. I think a lot of people are like. Does anybody still care about avatar. I was gonna ask coup is anticipating. I've talked to you besides get mine. I don't now i don't know but underestimate james cameron at your peril because this is what happened with titanic and this is what happened with avatar people were like is this going to be good. I don't know if i care about this and then boom biggest movie of all time and then biggest movie of all time twice he did that twice. People were like i don't know he lost his fastball. He's a weirdo. He loves to play with his toys doesn't understand humanity so i i wouldn't underestimate cameron trouncing
Welcome, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!
"Not during a scene with her finish said later, my new I was acting, but my heart didn't and my body. Certainly didn't I won't discuss it more because of the degree of intimacy involved. That was Finney the chemistry between the two is unmistakable Harris writes, and perhaps at its most powerful during the scenes when you're wondering whether Mark and Joanna should stay together at all a counter to your point about the Manzini score. He says, Don and gives their dilemma a great glossy coat from the gorgeous animated opening credits by 007 genius MAURICE binder to what may be the most melancholy romantic theme, Henry Mancini ever composed and then on its poignancy. He says undone in steady hand to for the road. Does what only a Hollywood movie can do it convince you to beautiful movie stars tooling through France and car are just like us. It's everybody's marriage. That's on trial in this film. If you've ever failed to let a fight go or said one thing too many or kept silent rather than apologize. You're likely to recognize a bit of yourself in the shards of the Wallace's the point about how they're just like us the scene that I think does that. So well is when they are forced to stay in the chichi hotel and have to kind of dodge around the fact that they can't afford to tell the restaurant. I mean, those charged for it is just a great secret. So fun so two for the road, my choice. Maybe Mark Harris's choice. If indeed he was participating in the marathon Thanos pick. I know it's not your choice though, Josh. And you know, what it's also not the choice of another guest. We have teased at last week that my daughter Sophie has been watching all of these films with me the first film finding marathon any of my children have fully participated in. And she wanted to play along and weigh in with her choice for best picture. I'm Sophie Manar in my awards for best picture goes to funny face. I was sucked in soon as the bundle of pink fabric hits the camera during the opening number it sets the tone for the whole movie fun wins ical, vibrant that. Coupled with an excellent performance from Audrey Hepburn led to experience where to quote, my dad. I couldn't wait to rewatch it as I was watching it. So there's my daughter quoting me quoting same van Haldeman? But that's fine. We'll go with it all goes round and round. Well, I knew Sophie was sharp. But this seals the deal. I mean, she she got the pick. Right. Funny faces the best picture of this marathon. I'll admit I probably enjoyed charade as much while watching it. But I think for me funny face has those musical production numbers that just are going to put it over the top. If you're comparing the two not only what I've already mentioned in these awards, but how about on how to be lovely that satirical, duet with Hepburn and Kate Thomson. I think that one really is crucial because it undercuts some of the movies fashion fascination that that they got into labout. That's great. Irene George Gershwin's. He loves and she loves I don't think we talked about this when we reviewed it at all. But this is where Hepburn an Astaire are at an. Outdoor wedding photo shoot. And they dance their way across a stream by lightly stepping onto a floating raft. I mean, here's another almost over the top Don touch could have been a pick for physio seen as well. So funny face. It's just stuffed with production numbers. Most of them quite delightful. Domine, of course, will forever be known for co directing singing in the rain. But I do think funny face has deserves a place in the top tier musicals conversation. Well, it's my runner up certainly for this marathon film. I did enjoy and has so many of those great done in moments. And touches that's our marathon. Are thanks again to Sophie to Nathaniel, of course, for all of his insights and launching all of these conversations. We hope you enjoyed this marathon whether you were following along or not and able to watch every film, we do have another marathon coming up. We don't have the date set exactly for when it will commence, but we're going to take a look at the work of Josef von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich that collaboration. You can find.

North Carolina Republican operative charged in election fraud scheme
"Charges in the last of the unresolved midterms and North Carolina congressional race. Where a new election has already been ordered by a state board political operative and convicted felon, Leslie McRae. Dallas was arrested Wednesday morning and indicted on three felony counts for election fraud that up ended North Carolina's congressional district. Nine race Dallas is accused of tampering with male and absentee ballots to favor. Republican candidate Mark Harris Harris was ahead of democrat, Dan McCreevy by nine hundred and five votes, but the state did not certify the outcome because of suspicions of election fraud Harris had denied knowing about Dallas's shady past before hiring him. But then cried as his own son told North Carolina's election board that he warned his father
New Election Ordered in North Carolina Race at Center of Fraud Inquiry
"According to MBC news. This is the first time in US history that anew election has been called for a federal office because of election fraud that with Jimmy Williams and joining us Judd leg author and founder of popular dot info. And judd. This is pretty extraordinary because Mark Harris was defending himself all the way to the end. Their point appointed, which it wasn't clear even knew McRae. Dallas the person who perpetrated these frauds, and then his son got up on the stand. It all change. What happens now is he likely to run what happens, and is there going to be any remedy against him for this frog? I think he's very unlikely to run. And here's why there were his sons testimony you played a clip. It was extremely compelling and dramatic, and essentially he breaks down the idea that Harris had been talking about since the election that he didn't know anything about Dallas. Or the fact that Dallas was involved in legal activities because I was warning him not just for weeks. But for years that Dallas was trouble. But the real problem, and the reason why I think he may not run again is that he was also exposed the fact that he did not turn over to the investigators the emails that establish these conversations with his sons, and then was lying on the state under cross examination from the lawyer representing the democratic candidate, Dan McCreevy that he had told his younger son that he didn't expect those emails to come up, so sort of know ille- withholding information from the investigators. So I think the combination. Of all that it just looks too bad for him. I don't think Harris will run, although he hasn't indicated definitively their way.
Mark Harris just lost any chance of taking a seat in Congress
"Republican congressional candidate in North Carolina. Mark Harris says he didn't believe that one of his political operatives would be tampering with mailing ballots in November. But much later. No winter's been declared in the disputed election amid those allegations of voter fraud, and now North Carolina's votive elections has ordered a new election in the states ninth congressional district
GOP candidate calls for new election after allegations of ballot fraud
"The last outstanding midterm congressional election results been dogged by evidence of ballot fraud North Carolina out a surprising move, Republican Mark Harris dropped his bid to be declared the winner in the ninth congressional district board of elections voted unanimously to call for that new election. But we don't know yet exactly when that will be and despite our repeated requests it's unclear whether Mark Harris will be on that. Ballot. ABC's Mary Bruce Venezuela's President Nicolas Medeiros ordering the border with Brazil closed. His opposition leaders try to bring in humanitarian aid from other
North Carolina Republican's son says warned father about operative's past
"North Carolina State board of elections. Just finished a three of a public hearing that it's trying to get to the bottom of what happened in the states ninth congressional district last year the outcome of that race still hasn't been called state. Election officials accuse a political operative named McRae. Dallas of running an illegal scheme to collect absentee ballots. He was working for the Republican candidate Mark Harris in what was very tight race NPR's miles parks has been at all three days of this hearing, and he joins us now. Hi miles. So understand today's session revealed tensions within Harris's family over the decision to hire. Dallas. What happened? Yeah. We heard some pretty compelling testimony from Harris's son, John Harris, who's actually an assistant US attorney in North Carolina. He testified that he had looked at previous election results from two thousand sixteen and noticed a disturbing pattern of results based on somebody who is hiring this political operative this McRae. Dallas basically he saw public records. That indicated ballots were being returned for this candidate in batches leading him to. Believe that somebody in bladen county where this investigation is centered somebody there was collecting ballots, which is a legal. So then his father in two thousand seventeen comes in and says he's thinking about hiring McRae, Dallas. And he really has an issue with that investigators show an Email where he even forwarded the North Carolina statute that said collecting ballots is a legal North Carolina to his father. What have we learned about this scheme that investigators say Dallas was running? So for the past three days. Former employees of Dallas described how they collected ballots and one employee even said she filled in multiple ballots down ballot races, which is a legal North Carolina. Again, it's illegal even just to collect ballots, North Carolina. They also described how they were instructed different ways to make sure that state and local officials. I didn't get any red flags about the operation, and the consultant who paid Dallas his name's Andy Yates, he said a number of times that he didn't have any warning signs about Dallas. That's even though the state investigated, Dallas and. Thousand sixteen and there were a number of. News reports about that investigation. Harris said that he knew of no illegal activity on behalf of his campaign. So what does today's testimony mean in light of that? Well, he can't really say anymore that he was not warned. Here's how his son John Harris put it I raised red flags at the time. The decision was made to hires Dallas. That's what I did. But he also says he thinks McRae. Dallas lied to his father about what he was doing to get out the votes. Andy Yates, testified that doubts that he was only registering people that he wasn't collecting ballots. John Harris says that he thinks his parents believe McRae Dallas, and he did not. He says also added at the end of his testimony that his father did things in his campaign differently than he would have these hearings were initially scheduled to just last two days. This was three that just wrapped up in. It seems like there's more left to uncover. How long do you think this is gonna last and how long before voters in the ninth district has a member of congress to represent them? So at this point if definitely looks that this could like this could last the the rest of the week if not longer we still haven't heard from Mark Harris, he's set to testify tomorrow morning. And his campaign says he is very ready and eager to do that. If the state board they're going to vote at the end of this hearing, whether or not to hold a new election order certify, Harris, if they decide to hold a new election that process could take months North Carolina ninth district voters in North Carolina's ninth district could be looking at not having representation in the house until late summer early.

You might remember more than three months after election day. They finally began the state election board hearing today, and it is extremely damning for the campaign of Republican Mark Harris. Here's how the executive director of the North Carolina State board of elections laid it all out. We we were by day show than a coordinated unlawful ace essentially resource as now the scheme operated, eighteen Lashin Laden, Dan Ross. State investigators found at least one thousand ballots were illegally requested by a man named McRae. Dallas whereas employees well over the nine hundred and five vote margin that decided the race Dallas, stepdaughter. Lisa brit.

Movie Review: “Green Book”
"Which I said, let's see I'm looking up here. I said I watched green book, and it was about a white racist who teaches a black guy how to be more black and how we'd all be better off racists in the victims of racism, just got along. Better your enjoyment of the film will likely depend on your receptiveness that message. And I literally thought I think I'm only my leagues agitating. When I literally thought I was just stating the text of the film like that. That is what I thought the movie was trying to. Say a lot of people were like criticizing me being like, you know. That's super harsh. Dave. And I'm like that is what the movie is like it's Viggo Mortensen plays a racist. There. Mercia Lally plays a black pianist going through Jim crow, south touring and and being subject to racism and the to kind of teach each other. Better understanding if humanity, and I think Mark Harris did a great job of running down like what's wrong with movies like green book, which they feel like they are out of I dunno late eighties early nineties. Right. This kind of by this. This type driving. Exactly, right. The like driving miss daisy. Both sides have something to contribute to the conversation. Like, oh, like like, look at how much we all have to learn from each other. You know, like. I'm sure I can imagine somebody who was big in Hollywood in that period. Looks at this way. Now now, the white guys driving him that's the movie, I know. And so it's not I mean, it's certainly I can understand why people find it to be an offensive film. And in fact, the the relatives of Dr Don Shirley have since come out and publicly denounced the movie, they have said like this movie contained they called it. A symphony of lies is what they said face like everything about the movie is that it is a gross misrepresentation of their relationship because like a big part of the movies about Dr Don, Shirley, the pianist and how he's like so disconnected with his family. And and he doesn't like he feels like a like an outsider to his own race. And it's it's Viggo Mortensen 's mildly racist character that helps them to reconnect with his like, it's all this stuff and his. The real life on Shirley families like well that never happened. None of that was true. But at least it was a symphony of lives. That's correct. The poster will say a symphony. No, I don't I don't know if they're gonna use that poco, Jeff. But in any case, I mean, yeah, it's so it's not even really that accurate and the story as it just it just feels like it's from a different era. Feels like we don't really need this kind of story anymore. We have other choices today about you know, how we've you these types. I mean. Yeah. There's there's a more diverse slate of filmmakers behind the camera. These days that can tell stories like this and from a different and more interesting perspective. So poignant views like, you know, more nuance point of us. I will say when I first saw the trailer for this. And I was like oh, my Herschel eilly. That's so that's interesting. This looks cool Vigo Mortenson and then Peter Farrelly. And I remember we talked about project greenlight a couple years ago. I will never forget how Peter fairly treated producer EFI Brown. And like, you know, she's a really well known and very prolific. Black producer. Yeah. And she's made a lot of stuff and Peter fairly would not show her any any instance of like respect or like there's just like a like subtle racism going on there.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Data analytics company Pailin tier is reportedly considering going public Pailin tier is the company co founded by controversial Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel, formerly of pay pal. It's named after an all seeing artifact in the Lord of the rings trilogy, and it promises police departments governments even the IRS that it can take in a huge amount of data and make a informed guesses to help track down criminals and in a secret pilot program in New Orleans, Pailin tear tech even tried to predict when crime would happen or who might be a victim. But lately, it's huge twenty billion dollar valuation is in doubt and privacy. Activists are concerned about its tactics. Let's dig into this in quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story. Mark Harris is a reporter who's covered Pailin tear for wired politics selling point is that can take these hundreds of data streams from old different kinds of systems that don't nobody worked together. And it can squeeze them all into this pot to come up with these insights. But that's actually really tricky because you have to understand a lot of different types of Audra, a lot of different types of software and databases and every company and every jurisdiction dustings way. Well, in one of the other things that's been speculated is that pollen tear may have actually promised cities like New Orleans or Los Angeles that it could do sort of pre crime prediction, right that it could sort of use artificial intelligence to say, oh crimes are more likely to happen here. You should direct resources that way. Yeah. It's the case that police departments want to be smarter about the way they deploy their offices and deployed their resources to question is can you do that in a way that respects people civil liberties that doesn't talk it populations minorities, perhaps a poll neighborhoods that have disproportionate amounts of policing? Even though there's plenty of crime happening. Elsewhere there's a cycle of there's been crime here in the past. So let's go there gin and. Or you can institutionalize a lot of biases and discriminations. The you know that we've seen historically in cities across America. It reminds me a little bit of the Cambridge Analytica story where they were saying look, we can use this data to micro target to such an extent that it will be like, we're psychic. We can get right inside someone's brain. And I wonder if there is a possibility that no company can do as much with mounds of data as they promise. Right. That's really true. Right. It's nice that they have success stories, but we're not seeing the day today work with not seeing how useful it is for officers, and some of the emails that I've seen, you know, found that some people using the thought it was path other people, you know, had struggled with it and struggle to get it usable by them and to give them useful results in their work. So you're right Parenti has this mystique of having trouble the intelligence agencies. They have a grey attractive background. They sound like a an interesting company to have that sort of technology working in your organization into the truth of it is can you actually see whether it pays for itself. I haven't seen those data it's entirely possible. And if they go public, which they're planning to do in the next couple of years, then we'll have a lot more visibility into what they're doing. Mark Harris wrote about Pailin tear in wired this month, you can find a link to that story at our website. Marketplace tech dot org. And now for some related links literally related this time. First of all, you have to read the Wall Street Journal story from the other day about pollen tear, and it's and possible problems with its business plan if only for the description of Pailin, tears, the Alex carp his beanies, but Varian farmhouse tied cheese swords loud German phone calls and how he describes Pailin tear as a quote colony of artists, but plenty of people find surveillance software. Neither Corky nor artistic last month. Several immigrant rights groups put out a report accusing Pailin tear along with Amazon and bay area company called forensic logic. Which does predictive crime analysis of helping the Trump administration excessively target immigrants for jail or deportation? Amazon you may have heard has been selling facial recognition technology to law enforcement agencies. The software is called recognition spelled with a creepy. K instead of a sif. In may the ACLU ran a test of the system and found that it accidentally match twenty eight members of congress with mugshots of other people. Amazon said it was mis calibrated last month and anonymous Amazon employee wrote a medium post saying that four hundred fifty employees inside the company had signed a letter to Jeff Bezos asking the company to stop selling the recognition software to law enforcement and actually to kick Pailin tear off of Amazon web services.
