Section 230: The Law That Made It Possible for Facebook and Twitter to Thrive
"Thing that actually made it possible for companies like facebook or twitter or youtube to exist and grow with something called section two thirty of the communications decency act which was passed into law in nineteen ninety six so what problem was section to thirty designed to fix the reasons extra to thirty even came to be was because they were to lower court decisions that held two opposite things k. One involved in old online platform called. Compuserve compuserve combines the power of your computer with the convenience of your telephone to bring you hundreds of online services like a complete set of encyclopedias for those of you who don't remember the nineteen nineties. Compuserve was one of the earliest internet service providers. It also hosted several online forms as well as the third party. Newsletter called rumor ville so in nineteen ninety. Rumor ville published some disparaging remarks about arrival newsletter. And this is perfect called scuttle but which was owned by cubby inc. In addition to suing rumor ville cubby also sued compuserve alleging that as publisher compuserve was also liable for the statements of its authors and the court in the compuserve case called covey versus compuserve. Said that a third party post on compuserve did not make copies reliable So in other words because compuserve didn't moderate content on its platform it could not be sued for libel that is since compuserve was merely a distributor of defamatory statements. It wasn't responsible got it. So what was the other case. And the other involved. Old online platform called prodigy named the case was stratton oakmont versus prodigy. Stratton oakmont as some listeners. May recall was the subject of the martin. Scorsese film wolf of wall street. Where leonardo dicaprio played straightens pill-popping ceo jordan belfort. I've been richmond. And i have been a poor man was rich but on my compuserve perje was held liable because it had taken a small editorial role in deciding what content got on its platform or not so it was these two decisions that were completely at odds with each other that caused two members of congress then representative christopher cox from california and then representative now. Senator ron wyden from oregon to say. Look if we're going to have an internet that flourishes where everybody can speak we need to fix this.

Finding the Judas in Judas and the Black Messiah
"The 19 sixties, Fred Hampton was chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party. He was a rising leader, organizing disparate multi racial groups in Chicago. Until police shot and killed him and another Black Panther member in an early morning raid. There's a new movie about Fred Hampton out this week, it is called Judas and the Black Messiah. It's not a question of ball. It's a non violence is a question of resistance to fascism or non existence within fascism Film got rave reviews after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last week. It's the second feature from director Shaka King who, until this project came along, was on the verge of giving up making feature films altogether. MPR's Andrew Lyne bonked takes it from here. Yes, Judas and the Black Messiah is about Fred Hampton and how he led the Black Panthers in Chicago. But it's also about William O'Neill, the man who infiltrated the Black Panthers in spied on Hampton on behalf of the FBI. Shaka King told me that the Lucas Brothers who co wrote the story, sold the idea to him like this. Their pitch that they laid out was we want to make a movie about Fred Hampton and William O'Neal. That's kind of like the departed the 2006 Martin Scorsese movie Inside the World of Cointelpro, or Counterintelligence program, the 19 sixties project where the FBI infiltrated and disrupted groups like the Black Panthers, and I was like I see it. I'm done. I'm in Judas is a tight, intense movie. Yes, like the departed and other Scorsese type crime movies. It's a long way, though, from King's first feature film newly weeds from 2013. So what you got here? Newly weeds tells the story of a young couple in Brooklyn who smoke a lot of weed where Judas is loud and fast. Really? Weeds is quiet and tender. I'm done. I'm done online. Won't want Wanna hang out. We hang up. Yeah. How are we supposed to go to the Galapagos? If you mind the bag every two minutes. It hits similar beats as movies by other indie darling directors like Joe Swanberg or the Duplass Brothers. The film Independent Spirit Awards even gave King the Someone to watch award after it came out, which came with a $25,000 grant. Not bad for someone fresh out of N Y. U film school. But after that initial fanfare, I was so depressed after making newly weeds and my expectations for the release just not coming to fruition. The movie didn't get much attention outside the festival circuit from agents and distributors, largely because it was a movie with black actors who no one knew on at that time that was deemed worthless. The film's release in 2013 wasn't that long ago, but it was just before what a friend of Kings jokingly dubbed. The Black Excellence Industrial Complex. You're Selma's and Moon Lights and Black Panthers when movie studios realized they could make a lot of money by releasing films by and starring black people. Nearly weeds. Loss of momentum burnt king out on the idea of making another feature film, But he did have an idea for a short rolling around in his head. It was kind of silly kind of outrageous, sweetheart. Lips. Excuse me, miss. It's called Moon Yang's after the Italian slur for black people want heard on the streets of Brooklyn in it, King and two others play these three black guys who talk like they're in the mom movies. King has such a fondness for It was somewhat inspired by King's experience growing up in a mostly black part of Brooklyn, but going to high school in South Brooklyn, where everyone the Irish Americans, Greek Americans, Asian Americans, Jewish Americans, all talks like the Italian American kids, and those kids were Hilarious. They were profane. They were quick witted, and we were not friends put like I could appreciate their sense of humor. The movie is a concise examination of race, gender gentrification. As King's character gets into an argument with his sister over a MetroCard, you did not have a dime. Put 1000 until the white guy comes by and says hi to the sister. Hi. How you doing? How are you? You guys just don't know what both outta here. Oh, Polluted the movie is fun and poignant, and the process reminded King how much he loved making movies. That movie saved me. You saved me. I didn't see that or know that about Shaka. But I could understand, and I could see how that could happen. Charles de King, no relation to director Shocking is the CEO and founder of Macro which since its founding in 2015 has produced movies and TV shows featuring non white people, including Judas and the Black Messiah. It was before the oscarssowhite moment. Of 2015. There's a lot that's happened since then. There is much more of an openness and I think an understanding of the business opportunity there. Which brings us to King today, making a movie about an anti capitalist black radical at a very capitalist Hollywood studio without watering down the politics. The deal is to respect the authenticity. Fred Hampton Jr is the current chairman of the Black Panther Party, Cubs and son of Fred Hampton. He says he and the other Panthers had their guards up when they were approached about this film. The Panthers have long been subjected to propaganda campaigns and misrepresentations. But he says King and the rest of the cast and crew definitely navigated the crossroads between their creative goals and the Panthers. Political ones. Well enough, anyway. Revolutionaries never satisfied. You know, I wish there was more political cartoon. We could've pushed. In a certain point, However, I'll put the people's need before before my needs my wants and desires. For instance, the relationship between Fred Hampton and his partner, Deborah Johnson, was a tricky thing to get right. The poet.
Use Books (And The Internet) As A Door, Not A Mirror
"Well i just finished a number. Netflix series lockdown is certainly helped me. Take care of my to do list on netflix. If nothing else and this time it was the series. Pretend it's a city which is a short interview series. Between martin scorsese director. And fran liebowitz the american author and humorist and fran is a lover of books and in this series. She talks about her love of book several times but one of the lines that really grabbed me was way. She said that a book should really be a door into a new world. And that's the beauty of reading books particularly when you're young it's a chance for you to escape the world. You're in a chance for you to go into another fantasy world or at least to learn about another different world. And i guess the inference in a lot of what she was saying was that. That's what's missing today because we're not reading books like we should or as like we used to and i think it's an interesting comparison to the internet because these days in the internet. We're all stuck into this world of social media which oftentimes thanks to the algorithms of course is really a mirror. It's a reflection of what we are interested in what we like and what we do. It doesn't necessarily show us new things over time. And that's the serendipity that fran talks about in this series as well of walking into a bookstore and just discovering a book opening it up using that as the door into this new world. Learning something that you did not know so. I think the comparison really is apt in today's world. And i think we should be using books as we should the internet and social media and everything else that lives on the internet as a door not just as a mirror that reflects who we are and what we are and it's something you may recall. He's got a very good memory. I spoke about way back in episode fifty to this show where i spoke about the need for businesses in general to look out the window. Not look in the mirror with her that we should reflect. We should take a good look at ourselves in the mirror but that is only gonna show what we already know will show us the image of what we already have but if you look out the window and have a look at what's going on around you you can actually learn a lot more. And it's basically the same point as frame was saying in this series. It's on netflix. Check it out. Pretend it's the city pretty funny actually or
Coronavirus: Hollywood Filmmakers Issue Warning Theaters Are Facing Extinction

Oscars set inclusion standards for Best Picture nominees
"In other news that's rocking La after years of Hashtag Oscarssowhite. The Motion Picture Academy has announced a major rule change to hopefully make the Oscars. Hashtag. So right, the Oscars are making inclusion requirement for best picture consideration starting at twenty, twenty four, those movies must meet diversity requirements in two out of four production categories widening opportunities for underrepresented groups. They include women, minorities, and people with cognitive or physical disabilities promoters of the initiative say the changes will better reflect the diversity of the movie going audience. So this is encompassing the totality of the people that actually work on film. All Shift From now on movies can only be nominated for best picture if they meet certain diversity thresholds wherever Martin Scorsese is right now he is shitting himself. He's probably calling dicaprio begging him to make a plan come on your show. You can't play black you can do anything I know you can personally. I think this opens a bunch of opportunities I. Hope that long running franchises will just switch up the races of people and never address it. Like how dope would be in the next Batman Movie? He's just Jamaican I beat about. What? Did you. See. For. What you want to see if what give him dude my you know what was funny man is soon as the story came out so many people read the headline and they just started panicking bitching online people like this is censorship you can't force filmmakers to create whatever you want I mean, how can you make a period piece with diversity? There were no black people but. You actually read the story before chiming in people would have realised that in fact, these new standards which only take effect in two thousand, twenty four I'm not that strict. For instance, a movie qualifies if it has just one lead role from an underrepresented group and thirty percents of the crew from an underrepresented group as well. Right? Even if it has just thirty percent diversity in the Marketing Department or an internship program for an underrepresented group and by the way. They define underrepresented groups as Black Asian Hispanic Indigenous People, women, the disabled community or members of the Lgbtq community. So in other words, it's super easy to meet this criteria.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Creators Depart Netflix's Live-Action Series
"Okay, let's start off with A bit of news that I'm sure comes to some disappointment our own ht. What is going on with Avatar the last air bender they were GonNa make a live action TV series for net flicks. What is the update? The latest update is a real bummer for avatars last Air Bender Fans Michael Dante Di Martino and Brian Connie ebsco who created the original acclaimed nickelodeon. Animated Series have parted ways with net flicks over the creative direction of live action remake series. De Martino Post announced in a post on the website titled An Open Letter to Avatar last air bender fans saying that they couldn't control the creative direction of the series and decided to just exit the project altogether and he he had some pretty not I wouldn't say harsh but not. Veiled for in terms of thinly-veiled In like knots unhappiness with Netflix production So he said at one point The project, which is still ongoing has the potential to be good. But what can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on screen, it will not be what Brian and I had envisioned or to make. So this is a massive bummer for Avatar. The last Air Bend Fans because De Martino. Goes involvement in the first place was kind of the reason that There was somewhat cautious excitement for this because these the creators at donors in executive producers for the new Netflix series and they promised or shared rather that they would be deliberate. Choice to a cast as. A people of Color and ethnically accurate to the depictions in leverage animated series and the. The memory of the last live action attempt. Ed Bender is still strong in fans mines, and we don't want a repeat of that. So now that contracts go rhino are gone, there's a lot of fear that the the. Disaster will be. Repeated. Yeah, we shouldn't insinuate that this disagreement it's probably over like the the the racist of casting or anything could be like story or character that we don't even know what the disagreements are over. This is a little surprising to me though because my conversations with filmmakers on and off the record has been that like Netflix's is pretty hands off with stuff. So I'm actually very surprised that big Conflict here I'm curious as a as a fan of Avatar the last air bender now that the creators are known no longer involved in this, would you still be excited to watch live action series not at all? My cautious excitement from before. Has now turned to a sort of read. which not to say that there can you know the situation can't come out the better I'm sure that there are some great. Writers and creators out there who could have an affection for Avatar last bender could. Steer this in the right direction, but it just feels like. Martino and Connie lasko are such a major part of Avatar less air bender and its success in why such great perfect animated show that they're not being involved in stepping way in a in this situation where it seems that they clash with the Netflix's executives in some way can't really know what? I sure what it just doesn't dumb. Bode well for the production at large.
Truth vs Hollywood
"Welcome to truth versus Hollywood I'm David, Chen and A. Truth versus Hollywood is look at films that are based on a true story, but we don't just talk about the film. We also talk about that true story. On this podcast will touch on what really happened. How that differs from the film and why and we're not just talking, heads will hear about the true story through interviews from experts, witnesses and people who were involved in it. It's both the real facts and the real facts are l. fix. What do you think that Joanna I loved it today Ridge? Today! We're talking about Martin. Scorsese's classic film Goodfellas Goodfellas is based on the book Wiseguy. Nicholas Pathology which, in turn is based on life of Mobster Henry Hill Hill was actually alive when the film came out and was very pleased with his film based on him, and as we'll talk about later, it definitely had an effect on his life. Pathology worked with Scorsese to write the screenplay and the film was. was a complete. It nominated for six Academy Awards and won one Joe Pesci for supporting actor. It's considered one of the best gangster movies of all times. If I put it on their list of one hundred years, one hundred movies and the Library of Congress decided that it was culturally important and added it to its preservation archives all right well. Let's get to the movie itself. It stars Ray Liotta. Hill Robert Deniro as Jimmy, the Gent Conway, who's based on Jimmy the Gent? Burke Joe Pesci as Tommy devito based on Tommy desimone Paul Sorvino Paul cicero based on Paul Vario and Lorraine Bracco as Henry's wife Karen Hill. Many real life figures at this movie was based off of an apparently Henry Hill ended up getting paid five hundred eighty thousand dollars because of the use of historian, this movie, which is a lot of money to pay to a mobster who has done very horrible things you know in watching this movie again. John Robinson one of the things that. I kind of realized you know or reflected on is the fact that we've been lost you decades seen so many movies about bad men, doing bad things, and that this movie kind of one of the prototypical examples of how they can be glorified an elevated in this. Movie makes that lifestyle look really glamorous while at the same time depicting some of the negative consequence lifestyle, but at the same time it does rubbed me the wrong way that like the people who are involved often are rewarded. We also saw this Martin. Scorsese's Will Wall Street as well. Similar dynamic, there so I'm kind of curious like as you're reflecting on your overall experience of watching the movie, and now that we know little bit more about what happened with the real life characters, and we're GONNA. Talk about it during the courses podcast like. How did it strike you that? This is based off of Real Person I. Think Scar says he couldn't have picked a better release. Go subject to to glum onto here than Henry Hill because though he is gangster and he's fully involved in this gangster life, he is a the likability of this character, which is really what's Cortesi was going for I've seen interviews. We talked about the nineteen thirty two scarface, which was the first time he ever saw. Gangsters depicted as really likable. When you Henry Hill. And he does terrible things, but he's a gangster who is a little squeamish. We see this the film and it's corroborated by true story of his life. He was violent crimes, but he wasn't a a mass murderer and You know the the charisma of him. I think is really important. He wasn't one of the most vicious people in this story. And so I think you're making good point that like. If you're GONNA choose an entry way into this world. Henry Hill is probably the ideal candidate in this case so. Well, the film opens with three men driving in a car, having a seemingly normal evening. It's then revealed that there is a captive in the trunk and than shortly after him, we mmediately get Henry's voiceover with the iconic line as far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. It's one of the most. Openings and Awesome History Joanna Robinson after nearly three decades. How effective did you find this opening? Well, it's funny. I did not see I was eight years old when fellows came out, or maybe nine so I did not see it in theaters and I didn't see it until later in life and but by then it already seats into the culture because it was so iconic. You know there's. Maniacs good feathers, pigeon parody, and like all sorts of stuff, so I'm going to wear of the beats of it, even though the first exposure to goodfellas was. Is what you're saying. Thousand percent absolutely. But you know so by the time I had seen it. I had also seen so many things that had imitated it, and this is true of like so many of our great films like by the time you get around to watching it. Maybe you seen a bunch of people. Knock it off and so you're like well. How groundbreaking? Is this
Apple and Paramount to make a deal for Martin Scorseses next movie
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Melanie and Matt. The streaming wars as you know as many people who are listeners know are underway. Hbo Max Coming out onto the field of play this week. A lot of people finding it a little including me a little tricky to figure out how to get that even though as a spectrum customer I should be able to access it but it doesn't show up on my TV. Because I have Roku so it's some people can't find it. Some people like it but we are seeing apple seeming to up its game with some big high profile deals. They are spending money. It's a little reminiscent in some ways of the Netflix strategy. Where we seen them angling for high profile expensive awards movies awards prestige movies apple is now throwing. Its hat into that ring. You know backed by the might the economic might that wealth of Apple. Yeah and this is a big project. Martin Scorsese Film. Sources are saying it's between one seventy five two hundred million dollars depending on who you believe probably will go much higher than that given scores as he's track record. It's got Leonardo DiCaprio. It's called killers of the flower moon. And this is a really really interesting play for Apple. Because you saw Netflix's get a lot of attention for the Irishman last year. Whether it was good or bad you can debate that. But it got them into the Oscar conversation in a meaningful way. They didn't walk away with best picture but they were in the game and apple will likely be in the awards game when this movie eventually comes out. What's interesting here? Is the deal structure. You've done some reporting on that because it was originally paramount. Paramount got cold feet and it ended up at apple after a bidding war. After you know it was shopped around town and this is essentially. What I think is going to happen with a lot of movies. Going forward where they get developed at the studios than the price inches up inches up inches up studios where once upon a time they might have taken a risk on a big movie from a big director are now going to get cold. Feet and income streamers just clarify something about that. Paramount is not out of this game. Scorsese has his deal there and they did release them to shop this around but they own the property the underlying novel and this is a very dark period piece set in Oklahoma in the nineteen twenties. Leo DiCaprio originally was supposed to play a good guy. Paramount was really interested in that version. Then he changed it so that he was playing a kind of a villain character and I am told that paramount felt this is now a less commercial movie with the same budget which point they did say go ahead and shop at around and there was a really long pause and apple did step up but it is still a question of a deal with paramount because it is expected that paramount will at least get some sort of a percentage at pop probably released the film in theaters. Which is what. Scorsese did not get with the Irishman with net flicks so having explained all that. Let me say I would pay money? Actually to see tensor Endo's at Netflix's sit down and explain to me. The cost benefit analysis of having spent which I think was certainly over two hundred billion dollars on the Irishman. Yes they got nominated no they. Didn't you know we? They have all the data. How many people sat through it. Did anybody subscribed because of it. It's a black box for people like us but this is this is something that apple is now saying. We're in it. We're in it in a way that will make Scorsese happy with theatrical release and ironically make paramount happy because paramount will have its name on this movie and we'll probably get a good chunk of some kind of a piece of whatever box office it generates win it can get made because we're all stuck now waiting for protocols and an insurance policies to make filming possible so we will see. I will note. This isn't the only movie they bought. They bought Tom. Hanks's movie Greyhound from Sony for supposedly around seventy million. That movie was done studios will sell as you suggest Matt with movies. That you to bring in cash right now I would say many cases. It is not a great vote of confidence. When you see these deals made in the movie itself but it will be high profile. It is Tom Hanks and for Apple. They obviously decided it was worth
Martin Scorsese And Leonard DiCaprio's Next Movie Is Going To Streaming

The Best Movie Soundtrack Songs Of 2019 | Movies
"I have a very special show today later. In this podcast I have an interview with Robbie Robertson one of the founding members of the band a significant figure in movie history as well. Who HAS COLLABORATED WITH? Martin Scorsese over the years. He has a new documentary that he participated in the basically tells the story of his life and the work of the band called. Once were brothers so I hope you'll stick around for that and inspired by that conversation. I had to invite on Ringer Staff Writer Rob Villa. Who is one of the funniest and smartest people I know about music? I Rob She's we'll thank you. It's an honor to be here of course alot rob you write about music and movies at the ringer as well and quite deftly and I think the use of music in movies has always been frankly an obsession of mine and I suspect that you are also a sophisticated thinker about this idea. Is that fair to say? Sophisticated is a strong word. But let's go with your role with your a guy who has a functioning brain that watches movies with music in them. Is that fair to say Aisha's? Amd during sonic the HEDGEHOG. That's the way I would describe my relationship with music and movies me I was that guy I feel like there's a lot we know there's a there's a conscientiousness about choosing songs in movies now because we grew up watching scorsese movies and then the movies of all the people who watched. Martin Scorsese movies and start making movies of their own and so the use of the pop song. We're not talking about score here. We're talking about pop music appearing in films you know what is your. What is your sense of? Who Does it well and sort of what goes into making a good choice for something that's really obvious or really obscure. I think the obviousness I see a lot more in prestige. Tv generally like that's the plate. Like any use of radiohead. Almost across the board. Like I I like a lot of Westworld but just the way that Westworld is uses those pop songs you know the old style piano version of pop songs. It's just you're just sort of leaching off that songs energy like the the cash that it already has and you're just sort of stealing and implanting it into your TV show or your movie like it's there's a difference between stealing a song soul and like taking a song and building a new universe around it like sort of recreating it in re-energizing it it's a it's a great point. I'll never forget the moment I watched the pilot of Ozark. Which is the last the last episode of ours. Ozark that I've ever watched and at the end of it Decks dark by radiohead began playing and I was like. Oh this is that JOE now. I mean no disrespect to say Chris Ryan. Who's a huge fan of that series but actually that choice indicated to me what the creators of the show thought they were doing and it wasn't for me you know it just didn't Didn't click with what despite liking radiohead and Jason Bateman and. I knew that there was a pretentiousness that I was not going to connect with their What do you think makes for a good song choice in a movie? I think it has to be at least a little unexpected. It has to re- contextual. Is it a little bit like I? There are instances where obviousness is what you need and I think there are a few of those and my list here but I I think. In general you need some element of surprise some just more gratuitous are just more surprising way of using it than what you would expect. Do you think it's important to saying something about character or the scene itself or because one of the things that that Robertson said when he and I talked which I thought was interesting was the he really likes the contrast he moments. That's the moment when you take a very sweet song. Said it against a very violent moment or you take a very sweet moment and give it something more braces and that's obviously a hallmark of a lot of the people that are best known for choosing songs and movies you know. Think of Quentin Tarantino or fincher. Scorsese are all these people that I talk about endlessly on this show. Do you think that the that music can play such a profound role in telling a story in that way? I think so. I mean you can go too far in that the phenomenon of every movie trailer now using like a really slow down creepy version of a pop song like you think. Fight THE FI. The fifty shades of grey beyond say series. You know like I suicide squad. I think did that. You know you can go too far in that direction and and just use it entirely as irony like. Here's a really sweet song to contrast with an ugly thing. But Yeah I mean. That's that's sort of an overused tropes at this point at the time in the heyday in the early reign of those people those directors like. Yeah that was a really effective use of contrast. So we're here to do a top five list. You'RE GONNA share your five favorite needle drops in movies and I'M GONNA share my five favorite needle drops. Now I don't know your picks and you don't know my picks you almost ruined this podcast by accidentally sharing those picks and I would like you. I'm I apologize profusely and I apologize for my choices. I think this is going to be yelling at me in the next twenty minutes. That's my concern. You know what my concern is is just being too basic right. There are some things that are sort of undeniably signature moments in movies and music especially in the last twenty to twenty five years when when I think this phenomenon has really picked up. Steam and my choices are not songs that were written for movies. They are entirely songs that had previously existed before the film came along. Is that true for you too? I think in all but one case my number five. That's not true but I think that's an important thing that you have to have a prior. Ideally you have a prior relationship with that song that the movie changes. That's what makes a really good moment for me. Not all of them but that's the platonic ideal. I absolutely love that. I probably have one song that that is out runs an opposition to that idea. But that's a great

Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
'Parasite' winning best picture would make movies richer
"So the nine best picture nominees are of Ford. Vive Ferrari affordably. Ferrari is Christian Bale and Matt Damon in the story of Ford trying to build a car to beat Ferrari in the lemond race The Irishman when is the Martin Scorsese Film. which is on Netflix? That you might have heard. It's three hours long. Gioja Rabbit is TYCO I. T's story about a World War Two to that is the one with the where he plays a an imaginary Hitler. If you've heard a joker of course Joaquin Phoenix as the comic book character. Sort of little women which is little women you know Little Women Louisa May alcott and book adapted by Greta. GERWIG marriage story which is Noah Baumbach. Big divorce film with Adam driver and also Scarlett Johansson nineteen seventeen which is about two young men in World War One cent. On a very dangerous mission started by Sam Mendez once upon a time in Hollywood Hollywood. Is Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's story about the Hollywood of the very late nineteen sixties and parasite which is Bongino Jin. Ho's Really Fascinating story about two families who come together in a very unexpected way Glenn Gimme a quick will win. Should win on best picture. I'd be happiest with parasite movie that just gets better and better. The more you think about it I'd be okay with little women or once upon a time like movies I'd be a little disappointed if it was Ford versus Ferrari for reasons you can hear more about in the full episode and if it is the joker I'll scream into a pillow Because I kinda hated that movie the oddsmakers have nineteen seventeen winning which is surprising to me. Because I like that movie but the best picture of the year really. It's Oscars sensitive from war movie and it's kind of a traditional Hollywood movie in some ways but then at the same time. It has the kind of showy element of having the you know. Made to look like one shot. I I will just go next and say I would pick parasite and you know. I'm going to stick with will win parasite because the last time. I had a tingling feeling that it was going to being upset. It was moonlight backed off at the last minute. So did the telecom. I robbed myself of an opportunity to look smarter than I am. So I'm going to say will win. Parasites should win parasite. I'm okay with nineteen seventeen. I think there is some lovely filmmaking there. I admire fire the accomplishment of it Bob. What do you think will win and should win? I think one thousand nine hundred will win because it's just everything seems to be driving that way it didn't start out that way. What's interesting sting is at the front runners? Initially were supposed to be Once upon a time in Hollywood and the two from from net flicks Irish marriage. I'm sorry Mayor Story and those have kind of disappeared from the conversation. I think it's safe to say none of those have a real strong shot anymore. I would love to see parasite win. Yeah Stephen Anything. I'm in somewhat of the same boat. I would be thrilled of parasite one I would be thrilled if a little women one. I love that movie so so much. I went on record in our resolutions and predictions show. I predicted addicted. That once upon a time in Hollywood was going to win best picture. It seemed like everything was coming together for The Oscars love movies about the magic of movie. Making it is is a movie about old Hollywood. You know who else is old Hollywood. Everyone who votes for the and so I felt so much like and also Quentin Tarantino. Not No he is an Oscars favourite but he typically get's nudged over two screenplay and then doesn't win best picture best director so I really felt like he had an enormous amount of momentum going going in but I agree that nine hundred seventeen seems to have kind of swooped in and picked it up and I. I really liked that movie a lot. I admire that movie a lot. I would be perfectly content content and satisfied to have it win best picture but this time next year it will take me thirty to forty five seconds to remember what won best picture unless it's parasite unless it's it's parasites will be talking about it for decades. Well I think I wrote about this a little bit if you subscribe to our newsletter which is at NPR dot org slash pop culture newsletter. I wrote about this last week but I do think there's a chance that will be parasite partly because the opening up of the best picture category. which originally was talked about as a way to bring? In kind of popular blockbusters that are also of quality. Got A lot of talk about the dark knight and things like that but it's actually done is bring in more smaller films and foreign right language films so eventually it's GonNa Happen. That one of them is GonNa win. Might as well be this one. I think it might be this year. I think people just like that movie. Yeah and the fact that the US preferential voting for this cat this particular story. COMP look it's way too complicated to get into here but basically what it means is if people liked parasite recite for example enough to what it number one number two or number three. It's got a better than average chance or second. Choices have a have a better than average less polarizing films. Do you better than the ones that everybody likes. Even if it's not their favorite

Ornstein is the author of the new book boys and sex young men on on hookups love porn consent and navigating the new masculinity. It's a follow up to her book. Girls and sex. She's been chronicling. Girls Lives for about twenty five years including her earlier. Books schoolgirls don't call me. Princess and Cinderella ate my daughter. She never expected to be writing about boys. His but after the metoo movement and revelations of widespread sexual misconduct including the now infamous list famous men. She thought it was time to engage young. A young men and conversations about gender and intimacy her book boys and sacks is based on extensive interviews with over one hundred college and college bound boys h sixteen to twenty two heads up to parents of young children. Like the book title. SAYS WE'RE GONNA be talking about teenagers and sex. But there's nothing explicit Peggy Ornstein. Welcome back to fresh air. Was it harder for you to talk about sex with boys than it was to talk about sex with girls or my. My biggest fear with boys actually was that They wouldn't talk at all you know. They don't teenage boys. Don't exactly have a reputation for chatting us and I was surprised and maybe the biggest prize for me and during the project was how eager they were to talk and while I thought it would be maybe awkward or or that. They wouldn't want to talk to a woman That proved not to be true at all. And they were Super candid they were super blunt. they talked a a lot about what boys don't usually talk about Feelings and I think the reason was that we just don't give boys this permission or space to discuss their interior lives and talk about what's going on with them so when they had the chance when somebody really gave it to them and Wasn't going to be judgmental about what they had to say. They went for it sooner. You write that. Feminism has given girls and escape from the constraints conventional femininity but for boys the traditional concept of manhood still hold sway. I want you to explain the difference that you found between girls and boys choice in trying to escape from the constraints of gender roles and gender preconceptions. Yeah I mean with boys. His on one hand. They saw girls as equals and deserving of their place on the playing field and in class and in leadership and they had female friends so that had really changed but I would ask them all the time to just give me a kind of lightning round of the ideal guy and when we would do that it was like they were channeling. Nineteen fifty five and it was still all about stoicism. Sexual Conquest Dominance aggression or this weird combination of being both aggressive and chill ATHLETICISM wealth. It was really narrow narrow and they would talk a lot particularly about that piece of suppressing feelings and a lot of guys Would say to me that they had learn how to build a wall inside them to block off any feelings except maybe happiness and anger and they would talk about training themselves not to feel feel or training themselves not to cry That was actually a really big one and it took me a while and again. I think this was being a woman to recognize what they were saying to me when they would tell me how you know about time they had cried or times. They almost cried like how big that was for them. And how hard that was for them so if it was humiliating. Yeah and that's a really good point because I think a lot of what the boys were wrestling with breath or or struggling with It was about humiliation but it was also about really about vulnerability and the kind of imperative creative that they not make themselves vulnerable whether it was in A hookup or whether it was with other guys one guy talked to me about how he liked to partner with girls roles in school projects because It was okay to say. You didn't know what you were doing with a girl and you couldn't do that with the guy. But that idea of emotional vulnerability ability was so profound for boys and we know that vulnerability is basically essential to human relationships. So when you cut boys off from the ability to be vulnerable You're doing them a huge disservice. And I started thinking you know when I was doing the girl book that the kind of core issue with girls was that they were being cut off from their bodies and not understanding their bodies response in their knees in their limits and their desires and with boys. It felt like they were being cut off from their hearts and that was having a huge impact on how they conducted personal personal relationships and what was available to them in personal relationships for boys. We talk with you about that. Where did they think that in ability to cry Brian without humiliation or the inability to access or express feelings? Where did they think it came from pop culture? The word that were brought up on your parents terrence. I mean all of that right I mean. Certainly the media barrages them with that idea of male sexual entitlement and Female female sexual availability and submission but yeah their DADS I mean. They talked a lot about their DADS or the the male role model in their lives. And it wasn't just guys who said said. Yeah my dad told me to man up or don't be a little bitch or something like that. It was also a lot of guys who would say things like you know. My Dad was a a loving charismatic guy. I didn't learn sexism or homophobia from him but I did learn that stunted side of masculinity because he was sort of a science walkaway kind of guy. The person who'd talked about something so I learned not to have those conversations from him. So you talk with boys who understood. Feminism awesome who you know Kinda got it intellectually but didn't necessarily behave that way. There were frayed to object. If they saw other boys behaving in a very sexist way or you know trying to be too aggressive with the woman at a party afraid to alienate nate male friends. who were like speaking and our mattress way about girls are behaving badly so Can you explain that That disconnect between having certain beliefs but not being able to act on them sometimes that pressure to silence was so intense for boys. I always think about this one guy who was telling me That when he was a sophomore in high school he tried to stand up when he was on crew team to senior. who was saying something Despicable about girls and the other guys mocked him and he had done this with a friend and next time it happened. The friend stood up but the boy I was talking talking to stay silent and he said to me the more I watched my friend. Stand up to this the more I saw other guys not like him as much and he looked at me and he said you know. I don't WanNa have to choose between my dignity and being part of this team. But but how do I make it so I don't have to choose. And that was a real central undramatic. Is that part of what makes you. A man is bragging about sexual conquest. And that whole idea of you know Locker Room Banter which we now know is the thing so when guys are together The way they're supposed to talk about sex you know they. They pound the Hammer. They Nail They Smash Bang. It's like they just visited a construction site. It's not like they engaged in an act of intimacy and that could be really troubling to a lot of guys but the cost on you know you can become a target. Get if you stand up to that you can be marginalized if you stand up to that. So there's a lot of pressure to stay silent if you're not going to engage in and that that silence in itself is kind of boys become men at the risk of stating the obvious. If you're using the kind of assault of language.

"Have conversations with that that deal with the interesting subjects so to speak and open your mind you can learn from them see. Didn't want them to know about your pass. Not necessarily sometimes tell stories and things like that kind of interesting place. I came from in in a sense I was still part of it and only learned that by the time raging bull. Really you know it was time to we thought could really change and said reinvent myself self am and become the director you know An effect it did but not really not really so ultimately after a New York New York I just sort of caved in and said okay. Look this is who you are. This is what you do These themes that you've been dealing with New York New York and Paul schrader scripted taxi actually driver analysis and Libya All of that's fine and good and that's something that might sustain you and had a universal interest but the problem is you can't you can't you just can't deny or pretend it didn't exist in terms of the world you came from the that forms you know And then included everything. Because don't forget the sixties were still It had the counterculture like a lot of the hippies. Oh can I just stop you there for a second I you can tell me if this is true. I read that when you went to woodstock. You're actually wearing cufflinks. That's right tell me more. I lost one of them as a shame. Yeah I know it wasn't a great one but I lost Austin. I had a friend cups. I have French cuffs on my shirt and then I started wearing jeans after that by the way radical. Yeah no I know I read riddick pushed it there a suit to woodstock well. It wasn't a pseudo was you know I I dressed differently from these. The all looking me very strangely and I would dress very differently and I still do. So you know I went back to what I in the seventies all change of course we were wearing more landers things but and it was very enjoyable to do that and But in any event no.

Two Main Street seventy-three. Alice doesn't live here anymore. Seventy four taxi drivers seventy six New York New York seventy seven the last wall seventy Wendy eight raging bull nineteen eighty king of comedy nineteen eighty-two. I'm just thinking your schedule. A must have been insane. That must have been like a whole lot of stress. I am yeah just collapsed and out of that came raging bull you collapsed. You collapsed and then you made raging bull. Yeah John Collapse like collapse with the you know the same old story You know having a pet to tell you withers drugs or not. You want to get into drugs but the issue is with the failure of New York New York or considered failure so to speak. I I like that film of La. Yeah exactly at that. Time was considered a terrible flop. They be considered that people. Now look at it and say what is very very different. Okay but with that failure in be Ab- For me a certain artistic failure for this big experiment that I wanted to try There was a a lack lack of Something happened like I felt. The creativity was just punched. Out of me and Yeah you saw that. He sought some Interesting times we're taking these drugs that this sort of thing but Ultimately it was an experiment a curiosity to try to find. If I could ever care enough to get back on to get back on set to care enough I didn't care anymore and I had to find if I can make another film. I felt a little bit about wools. Also made you feel that again. Because that's what he goes through. Oh say well. I didn't know that Deniro knew it. he more or less knew it because because he also wanted to be He had been working out he was. We were thirty five and thirty six years old and he knew that he really had to make it as soon as possible because physically he wanted to do is gain all that weight. It can be very hard for him if you've got older. And he knew I was the right person to make it and he kept pushing me pushing me and I kept rejecting it for like two years. I don't know anything about sports. I didn't boxing to me was always an image of two small an image and a sixteen screen black and white up two small figures kind of moving around a white square. What is that you know? I never went to a fight so I don't know I saw fights in the street. Yes but not not in a rain and so and and I knew You know certain things about it But ultimately I also didn't know how to shoot it so I came up with my own way of shooting like music saint so Like covering music in the last waltz for example and in New York New York and I applied the same principles To the fight scenes in raging bull but primarily. It's that the rebirth in a way he's reborn and I thought pretty much. That was it but it took about twenty five years before before we could agree on the subject matter to make our next film that became Irishman. Trying to do other things we were trying to do. Really what we were trying to do was is a a remake a bed beautiful in two weeks in another town. Those Hollywood right. Yeah but in a way this is what it is better than beautiful is like three films and won to begin with exactly. Yeah so that's a Lotta films to do that. We wanted to do our version of it and we we were living it and we couldn't figure out when to start and went to stop you know and also sometimes you get into things things that happened to you and say what you do that. This person will be upset or data data and so we found. We found the common ground on on on Irish really. I'm glad you did. Do you still consider yourself Catholic. I think so yes. Yeah and like have your beliefs changed from what you believed about like heaven. And how L. in life and death from when you were an altar boy well of course you were child and you had the child. So what's the The Saint Paul thing I put away childish things now. How we're stuck with the adult things? So what's your adult vision of of death. No and of what if anything is after. That's a that's a good question. Of course I I don't know I think I know the sound this way. It sounds is rather naive. I guess but the point is that I do believe in Something beyond the material I mean I do believe in This machine Moran and away body wouldn't be the same without the spiritual ritual part of it. Whatever that is and people say well it's the brain synapses?.

So did it feel better to kind of like get thrown out because that's a kind of like statement and as opposed to saying like I want to do it. No no I knew what is missing something truthful and I knew I was missing the very essence of how you should live I really did. Did you feel like you could find that essence through art through making movies. Yeah ultimately it's but that took a little while I mean it was always there. I was doing things with my friends and stuff like that. Adult cinema movies had become so important to me because I would go to adjust basically spent a lot of time there but couldn't really play sports or anything like that. Maybe I should have. Maybe you should have been like Teddy. Roosevelt did everything with asthma. But my parents are old fashioned and As I said uneducated in the doctor said don't do this you didn't do it Did you spend a lot of time as a kid at home.

My mother was working so I just go in and there was a sandwich waiting for me or whatever and maybe there was a film come on channel eleven you know in the afternoon and certainly after three o'clock I had that apartment to myself. It was amazing. I saw Cocteau's beauty the beast. I saw my diary of a chambermaid I saw The Southerner Renoir began fat fascinated by renoir because I got got to know that it of course his father was his great painter too and I saw these pictures of paintings in school. Like those amazing and I became fascinated by some some of these especially if the film had subtitles. I found that very curious like Bella. BET subtitles fantastic. Then these onto Parodi Redeem one night was on. I only saw the first our children paradise. Yeah fulfill had subtitled. You can speaking this language. Would you their trust in a very interesting way. Culture is very very different. It's certainly such a different world from the when you were growing up and you you got out of your neighborhood by going to Nyu so we're once you start going to Nyu which was a different world even though it was near to where you grow up yes We you I imagine. You're coming home afterwards. Will you a person and both of those worlds. Yes and what was the difference. The difference mean streets there. Charlie mean streets kind of characters a blend of my father and me in a way a My father and his relationship with his youngest brother who was always getting in trouble. I was in jail so his brother was de Niro character. Yes yeah and it was reflected in myself a close friend of mine and our friend was always in trouble and so it had ah it referred to both both the my father's worthy my world.

It was about in a sense me to a certain extent trying to get out of there And living you know going due to Washington Square College Reading Moby Dick.

Cavities buy a house. Frampton by Jonas Meek is in the whole underground Shirley Clarke. For God's Sakes Amazing you met you met Robert Deniro when you were both around sixteen. Yes where did he fit into your your life and into your world. Well in that area as I say not necessarily the college crowd But different little clicks clicks. I guess you'd call it now but there are other groups and they will hang out in different with the call social clubs and he was with them and sometimes they'd mix and I remembered him as the Nice one. So when you met you had no idea that either of you know would must be in the know so must have been a big surprise when you met up again. Yeah we Jaycox and Burnham Blooms House and Christmas dinner Brian. DEPALMA put us together. Uh was nineteen seventy. I think and that after dinner Deniro looked at me and said you know I know you used to be with the Joe Ian Kurti and this guy that guy and I said wait a minute. How do you know that because at that point I was denying it? All what do you mean no. I don't want anybody somebody to be a filmmaker. You don't go to Hollywood.

I'm filling in for jared who is out today on vacation. Haitian I'm joined here by Ryan as you just heard fans whatever and Austin out in Australia still. Yeah we're down under or man down under night no matter crew to talk about a Nice Ole Mafia movie. Today we're discussing. The Irishman written by Stevens alien directed by Martin. Scorsese Sese starring. Everybody Robert De Niro Al Pacino Joe Pesci Ray Romano. I can keep going on as always. Let's go around and get first impressions. And what was it like the first time you saw this movie. If you watch the second time like me and Austin on if you did Ryan what was it like the second time you saw it and Let's start with you Ryan. What was it like? Tell us will you know you. You call this the Irishman. I think someone needs to explain to. Martin Scorsese that movie's called the Irishman. Because he put a title screen Fr- I heard. Did you paint houses at the beginning I saw that I did. That was bizarre. I thought it was pretty cool though. Yeah I was anticipating more title screens throughout chapter visions and then weren't so so retroactively. It made me think okay. I mean that was a very conscious. Big Block lettered decision. What's going on there? You know real quickly before I get into my thing I Review Jake. I hear you say that you went into this first screening. Not knowing feeling it was a true story that's right. I didn't know that you caught that. That's crazy to me okay. Let me let me well I I go into every movie pretty much movie knowing nothing because I've been disappointed far too many times so anytime I like. Get too amped or two jazzed. I get disappointed so what I do now. Is I kind of go in knowing nothing. I knew nothing about this movie. So I went to with jared at the Egyptian theater now that Netflix runs the Egyptian And Yeah I just saw it and I to me I was like. Oh He's just made another goodfellas made another casino. We'll great casino. We're both about real people to true stories. Yes I don't know anything. I should not be here hosting filling in no no I. I didn't know much so about this movie and I didn't know much about those stories. I just didn't know much about what's going on. I knew Jimmy Hoffa was obviously a real character. I wasn't sure how much of this was fictionalized around him. Then then in the second watching and researching this podcast I I watched I had no intention of coming on the podcast. Now that I did I was like oh Okay there's a lot more going on. Every single character can be kind of Google Research. That's interesting every moment like the Nashville court scene. I mean everything is sort of a historical moment so it felt more like watching Lincoln this this time. Okay not not not to be disparaging but I thought it was a little more historical. There's more to get out of it so anyway. What was it like the first time you saw it right okay? Yeah because I'm I'm the opposite of you. I read like a fuck ton of movie blogs and movie review site too so I i. It's pretty rare that go into movie completely blind. I do you know I try to stay away from spoilers and stuff obviously but I knew a lot about this story going into and I haven't read the book I heard you paint houses but I you know I pretty much know the entire story And yes I could not wait for this movie. This was the fucking. The expendable of of Martin Scorsese verse. Or whatever I do follow follow. You were friends on facebook. I did see the anticipation with your full. On fucking list of Martin Dobson Tireless. I ranked every Scorsese film that I've ever ever seen you know Willful Wall Street's at the top trying to see where the Ryerson would follow in and basically I really love this movie. I mean it it is not the home. Run on out of the ballpark hit that I wanted it to be. You know it's not good fellas. It's not as good as casino even in my opinion It doesn't But but I don't really really at the end of the day. I think it was even aspiring to be like those movies even though it obviously does fit in nicely next in the filmography with those total it has completely different aesthetic whereas those films are very very tightly bound together by their aesthetic. And this one's ten times slower It's three and a half hours hours even though I guess the other two or three hours but this feels way slower obviously Because you know it's about fucking geriatric people goodfellas meets grumpy old men and what I did but I really liked it like I two saw in one sitting at the Egyptian theatre like you which I think is the only way to wash movie. I do think that I'd be curious here. I'd be curious to hear people's emails. You know like the difference between the people that watch in the theater versus the people that watch it like three parts on Netflix. Because that I honestly it by the time you're on your third sitting. Watch the Irishman. If that's how you did it feel like you're you're pretty much. It's like a chore for You. You're like all right. I got this movie people. Tell me it's supposed to be important whereas you know we. We saw three hours which was too long. It is a WHO long movie I would say doesn't need to be three hours but I will say that. I was completely engrossed in engaged the entire time I was rarely Li- like twiddle my thumbs Yeah so yeah to me like it. Fired on all cylinders with the aesthetic the pacing was cool and different The de Aging was weird. But honestly I liked it at the end of the day in in kind of made me my imagination. Run Wild with the possibilities of how you can apply that stuff. I mean. Obviously they looked old old even when they were young. Sometimes which is you know. Didn't work perfectly. But I got used to it so overall I mean I give it a solid a minus like a pretty great really great movie. I will tell you very briefly before you get the also I. I had a funny I. I went on a date to see this movie with somebody. Our second day she it was her idea to see the three and a powerline movie. And I'm like okay great but I I've been wanting to see it. Let's go and then we go to the Egyptian and I swear to God for. She starts coughing right right which she's sick. UK Get Madison for coffee. But she does it every ten seconds for three and a half hours and and I was never going to say anything. I got some water to help. Then everybody around me literally start saying hey can you please leave after about two hours of her being there so my I was in this like painful so I was in this curb your enthusiasm episode from Hell where we're literally me and my dad are ruining the whole movie for five hundred people at the Egyptian Just like because of something. She can't change she's sick. What is she going to do? You know and so then I'm sitting there And then she says Ryan stay here. I'M GONNA go in the back and so I listened to her and I didn't leave leave. That was never going to date with me to a movie. I'll leave you in the movie if you're sick and you can go back and honestly I mean you you. Everyone felt bad for but it's because she was sick. What are you going to do? She can't help but yeah I mean. She's coughing so did you watch it again. Dan Yes so so that you experience was a little fucked but I did enjoy but then yeah I did watch it with my folks when I came back for Thanksgiving and and and we watch it on Netflix. But in the two parts and that was definitely not fun is the first time even though the first one had the coughing incident. So let's go to you Austin. What was it like watching the the first time I it was like watching it again? Yes the first time I saw it in the theater second time. I did a two part viewing on Netflix. And I actually didn't mind the two two part viewing of it. It felt kind of Nice like it was a mini series. Almost you know and I went in with. I guess the historical Biographical Lens so I went in knowing that this was going to have some sort of there was going to be like entertainment historical biography you know and it totally was totally was and and I. I was hesitant before seeing it because I'm kind of tired of so much cinema right now. I know that Scorsese is not the average director director. What's up Oh to say say what tired of too much cinema well? Contemporary Cinema not tired of the cinematic form. I'm bored with what is being produced. And so when I saw that it was gonna be another gangster film I was like I mean. How many times is he gonNa make a gangster film? I was like I know it's him. I should give him like a long leash but then I was like also in this landscape. Cinema seems to be saying the same shit reproducing the same stories just with different different names attached to it so I was. I was a little bit Mr Mick grumpy face before I went in right and.
"martin scorsese" Discussed on The Qwipster Film Review Podcast
"Today I am going to be looking at the latest film. From Martin Scorsese and it's a film. It's notable because it's currently playing on the Netflix streaming service. It is called the Irishman. It is an R. rated film it did give some theatrical release before it was put into Netflix. But I'll get into that. In a moment. It has pervasive of language. It has strong violence in. It runs another notable thing three hours and twenty nine minutes. The main star is Robert Deniro with sizeable sizable supporting roles. For Joe Patchy Al Pacino Harvey Keitel Stephen Graham Ray Romano Anna Paklin and bobby kind of Ali are in the film. Martin Scorsese as I mentioned is the director Stevens alien credited with the screenplay of Irishman is a tale that is spun from the vantage point of an older man. He's in a nursing home. And then we get to see a series of very extended confessional flashbacks as the main body of the film. A Robert Gordon. Euro is in that lead role of that old man. The World War Two veteran meat delivery driver named Frank Sheeran who back in the nineteen fifties. He got get involved as a Hitman for the mob after he met and he provided his services to a well known crime boss named Russell. BUFFA Lino Beverly knows. Played by Joe Pesci she in the film now during his time working with Russell. Franken's up meeting and then becoming a close confidante of the nation's most influential union boss Jimmy Hoffa and then he's played by Al Pacino Hafa was known for using strong-arm tactics to bring the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union to power organized crime had a significant influence in this era on the unions and in business and really up to the highest levels of government. So frank finds himself on the rise. He plays bodyguard and a man of trust to Hoffa in his attempts to keep control of the most powerful union in the country. Now if you know your history you know Kinda wear this is going to go although although you know the mystery of Jimmy Hoffa kind of still exists today this film attempts to answer some of those questions now. The Irishman is a notable film for for many reasons. I've already given you a couple but in Martin Scorsese's long and illustrious career he struggled with the financing here for over a decade to get. The movie made his way. The current studios make decisions primarily for wet will make them a prophet cinema for art and these Oscar Bait Prestige films. They end up getting packaged with a similar notion in mind they want to have their budgets limited and to market them on the hope that perhaps it might take off often become lucrative for them after languishing for several years. Martin Scorsese may depress to push forward with the Irishman. After the release of silence in Twenty Sixteen eighteen however the financially struggling paramount pictures they paid for domestic distribution rights which was good but then they scoffed at the exploding costs of putting forward word. The filmmakers vision as it was the ended up dropping out when the leading financiers a Mexican company called Fabrica Cassini. They cancelled their one hundred. The million dollar bid to fund the money when the costs looked to skyrocket well above that amount Scorsese ended up bucking then the traditional studio system in two thousand seventeen to make his film with the Streaming Service Netflix Netflix. There's no need to worry about selling tickets because they really have a platform already for their viewers you know they have a different prophets structure that relies on getting new subscribers to sign on to see their wealth of entertainment that they provide and they want to keep all subscribers from canceling because because they're satisfied with them continuing to get fresh content of quality so they footed the hundred and five million dollars for the exclusive rights to the Irishman and in addition to that the overall budget to make film into one of the best films in the career of one of the best film makers of all time. That's quite a feather in. Netflix is cap now. Despite despite not being made by a major studio Scorsese here received a hefty budget to make the film he wanted a hundred and fifty nine million dollars. That's the kind of money that studio's really. I usually only afford the movies. That Scorsese has recently criticized as so-called not cinema in his interviews of late. You know he's a longtime sinophile and he's also been a cinema Peres to eat. Long has been extolling the merits of the theater and crowd experience to take movies. And that makes his marriage to netflix particularly striking they. They would split the difference by releasing Irishman exclusively into theaters for twenty six days before it ended up debut in on the streaming service. It's not a popular way to do it. Some major as your chains so major theater chains have been resistant to showcasing films that ended up going quickly to digital so a lot of them chose not to carry it. Not only because short runs cut into theater profits because the longer that films run in their theaters the more of the percentage of the take that they get but audiences are also hesitant to pay for an experience into theater when they could see it on Netflix in just a short number of days. So Scorsese has since softened on his initial criticisms of the studios in their quest forever. Profitable temple releases here. He chooses to let his work speak for him and it speaks volumes. The Irishman is best argument in reminding cinna files on what it's like to see a visionary filmmaker deliver an honest to goodness artistic and dramatic achievement in crafting challenging cinema cinema set of trying to service audiences by making strictly what we want to see which is usually what the temple releases do not. What is the Irishman well? It's an adaptation one of this two thousand four true crime book that was written by a former Delaware. Deputy Attorney General. He ended up turning into an author. His name is Charles Brandt. He published a book upon on which the Irishman is based. But it's called. I heard you paint houses in book. Form The book chronicles Frank Sheeran's alleged activities working for the Buffalo Crime Family and details els his purported involvement in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa. This is a book that Robert Deniro read during his time when he was directing his film the Good Shepherd that was back in two thousand six. It has some similar subject matter because it gives some history of the Bay of pigs which is kind of what the Good Shepherd was revolving around Deniro connected acted with Charles Brands Book. He ended up handing it to Martin Scorsese to read and he thought it could be a possible project for them to work together instead of the one that they had been planning which was of the. Don winslow novel called the winter of Frankie machine. Now Scorsese felt that if deniro was finding it so passionate about this potential project and the way he hasn't I've been in some time maybe it would be worth pouring all of their time and hearts into getting a film that they truly wanted to see made at this point in their career so he ended up optioning the book immediately after reading it in two thousand seven and yet he still struggled to try to bring it to the screen and that lasted for over a decade because initially he was struggling with scheduling all of these actors that he wanted to appear in the film to be available. And then there was a darker reality as timeline on studios were becoming more reticent to provide the funds necessary necessary to bring such a sprawling epic gangster film too big screens in this era of massive releases that concentrate on superheroes and big budget action Chin and whatnot. This was not going to be a lucrative film in most studios mind so the rest is of course history. We see it on Netflix. Now in this film will end up marking the ninth feature film collaboration between the Director and Deniro. They had not done a movie together. A full-fledged movie since Nineteen ninety-five Gangster Opus called Casino now also from Casino is Joe Patchy he reportedly had been asked by. Martin Scorsese dozens of times to come in to do the film before consenting they say over over fifty times PECI really had not appeared in any movie other than doing voice work since two thousand ten love ranch and that was his first significant roles since since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight lethal weapon four so for the past twenty plus years. He really hasn't done very much. She said he was through with gangster movies in particular but Scorsese insisted listed. This one would be worth his wild come back to you deniro. So played a role in getting pets. She to reconsider. And the actor finally consented when Netflix got involved because then the project changed from a pipe dream to something that actually had solid backing an interest in Deniro was right. The film is different and the Irishman's not just about the rise and fall all of a criminal empires so many gangster films are. This is about more than that. It's about the corrosive nature of crime itself on those participate in the life of killing and thuggery. This is a story of a man at the end of his life. He looks back at all he's done and this is also made by people who are also looking back. At the kinds of films they've done and in that retrospection altogether they find a defined poignancy in the tolls that are paid and traded away to live a wretched life. It's something that really can. Only be observed at the other end of life looking back back a retrospective gangster film not commonly seen anymore although both knew each other and traversed the same cinematic circles for nearly five decades. The Irishman also marks the first collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Al Pacino. They discussed making films together for years so they definitely were on the same page. They're the most promising project that almost became a film was a bio pic on a Jewish Italian artist named Modigliani that dissipated due to studio reticence back in the day back in nineteen eighty. The United Artists Released Heaven's gate. That was a big budget art film and they ended up taking a bath on that. They really faced bankruptcy after that and they ended up getting scooped up by MGM and that made a lot of studios Shy Away from putting forward the funds necessary to make lengthy and lavish art films like that Pacino did appear For three prior films with Robert De Niro though the first of course the all time classic but they didn't work together on the screen. That was the godfather part to the second time. It was much more notable. They made a great film. Ah called Heat Michael Mann's film and the ended up sharing a key scene in that. which a lot of people found very riveting because here were two titans of acting from the the nineteen seventy s through the nineteen eighties working together? The third time they actually worked together much more. But it was a lacklustre misfire. The very few fans really care about beyond the fact that there is is a pairing of Pacino and Deniro that was called righteous. Kill after that last one de Niro said he would like at least one more chance to work with the Chino but it would have to be in a project that they both could could be proud of. Making and the Irishman I think is that movie that they should be pleased very pleased that they made now all three of these actors give their best performances on film in decades especially especially Robert Deniro. He acts like the film really means the world to him. And that's probably because it does. It is a passion project for him even more so than it is for Scorsese. We witnessed Deniro's passion. You can see a scene that comes late in the movie. He as frank struggles to spin a hopeful assurance to be concerned wife agonizing about her husband. Who's been missing for a couple of days? Frank knows of course what happens to the husband Jimmy Hoffa but he has to maintain this facade of being a family friend and to be able to consoling in that effort and he's struggling to find the words. You know this is evidence not only of the scene but throughout this whole film of a masterful performance. I think this will will allay naysayers who have long. How did that? The actors best work is long behind him. Meanwhile Pacino is electrifying as you would expect as Jimmy Hoffa's both menacing and comical comical is a mix of strengthen actually vulnerability that really could only come from one of the great actors in Cinema. It's really a well rounded part. It's not just to stereotype. And although he's rarely acted in the last two decades I think Joe Patchy really seems like he hasn't missed a beat here. Even longtime squeezy collaborating Harvey Harvey keitel gets a smaller appearance. Although the role may be too small to garner him to kind of accolades that these other actors are getting. The Scorsese is still in peak. Form here here with the Irishman his use of steady cams to at intimacy and to comment on some of his other works and music to punctuate the time in the setting in the mood of the film. And there's a heap of emphasis on period details. Here is very immersive. He had already had a shorthand with these lead actors. He'd worked with before I guess Pacino was new to him but he is also Louis season actor that's used to improvisation reactions and he has played variations of tough guys like Hoffa throughout his career. So he didn't really need a lot of guidance. Scorsese here is discovering covering new facets by not portraying these top gangsters as unapproachable or glossed over with menaces so many other films dude instead. They're flawed their Pity they're concerned with very mundane issues on a human level. Russell doesn't want people to smoke in his car. and Jimmy Hoffa really can't get over someone meeting with him unless they're wearing a suit especially if they're late that really bothers him to no end and I guess if you want to read into this in all these ways. These behaviors are a measure of control. Roland respect. That drives them. They expect and setup arbitrary rules as guideposts on how others should behave around them whether they continue to have that respect as measured by whether other people are willing to indulge in not smoking in a car or being on time and wearing a suit a really dogs these men to no end if they don't get that respect so very very telling their the film features over two hundred fifty characters to portray throughout several decades heavily researched period wardrobe sets vehicles. Guns ends other props that are appropriate to each era. Six thousand extras were also utilized in the course of the shoot and that shoot took place at over one hundred different locations Israel locations not just done on a movie set now. Does it need to be three and a half hours long now if you will just want to tell this as a story I guess it didn't need to be. You could probably do within two and a half maybe even less than that but if you removed even an hour of this film you would likely lose many of the important smaller and more relevant reflections and those personal tidbits that feel so unique in this world that Cortesi and company are creating Scorsese here deliberately brings in details like.

"Me that people are always saying he glorifying violence in his movies so is that is that more so i feel like you have to say more really what would it be saying about violence in that i guess for your thing it would it be i don't i don't i don't feel like the movies glorifying violence i don't i'm and bring my own sort of prejudices apologizing for the fact that of course leonardo dicaprio's character is a man of violence he's gone through the worst shit the moral better did you expect that or yeah i mean yeah that's here's what it means to your point here you know he's like literally hugging hugging his dead wife his hands are covered in blood there was blood on his hands martin scorsese is working on his hands from movies there's the menace bam play that inception thing the violence is actually i think different than most movies he's at least that i remember at least that i feel like this one is the blood is much redder and more saturated it's much more like more beautiful almost like it's almost like a painting almost it's art artsy did it wasn't gross to me like remember watching you know the blood flow out of the nazis had there's something there's something beautiful about that image so there's beauty in the violence here which is interesting it's like all of those flashback sequences are very lush you talked about that tracking shot where they shoot off the nazis tease i mean that's a beautiful shot you're like you're marveling at this display violent arctic shot to yeah all right right you guys have anything else you wanna bring up if not we're going to the mail bag anything else print going once going twice we got a lot of emails and voicemails about the dark knight rises a a movie that people seem to be passionate about we're gonna go into our food we're gonna go into our voicemails if you wanna hit us up with with a voicemail comments questions interpretations whatever you want to one three five three four eight eight zero seven or two one elf hut oh seven we're going to go with anonymous who wants to talk about the dark knight rises going on animus hey lifestyle i wanted to comment on someone else less earlier earlier in the stream about the the the noble why at the end of the dark knight rises i actually don't think it is alive because the batman the the whole all series is about bruce using the symbol of the bat to overcome his here the symbol dis and is given new life in a participation of the people of gotham so the he hands them basically gives them the rights it's to use the symbol uses a symbol to inspire them and then the figure of the batman is at the end of the film and so because of that more people can take on batman identity which is kind of there need not the strongman of justice anymore now justices lies on the shoulders of every i've ever individual which i think is point so i don't think it's a lie i think it's a it's like an art performance hey that's kind of like this point yeah yeah the only thing is that i would like that a lot more if joseph gordon levitt character didn't become batman that's the problem with that sort of thing like it feel it doesn't i don't feel like the symbol people is dead it's still it's still alive it's like banks do you know the bank sees identity is his art he i- banks he could be anybody buddy it can be joseph gordon levitt but joseph gordon levitt has access to the bat if he like if banks he died like someone else came as banks what i'm saying the we'll never know i guess you know these people i like the idea of the statue not being representative of the sacrifice batman but at image of what gotham needs to come to get its needs to become to get its shit together but once again if it is in fact the city as a whole that if the symbol really has evolved than there shouldn't be just another batman which is joseph gordon levitt yeah my only nemo only thing with that all right let's go from mike hey what's going on my back this is mike from new york i'm just calling in about the meeting on the dark knight rises i i just thought it was interesting when you guys got a discussion about the socioeconomic messaging of it and i really appreciate a lot of jokes comments i think just quite simply no-one isn't schilling for or left or right wing ideology just doing one of the things that he did pretty consistently well across all three installments which is kind of make gotham a character one of the biggest guest exit out the rest of the DC franchises they treat big by sequences like the city is a rugby field and you're you lose sight of what exactly these people are defending or attacking right whereas like the marvel franchise is very good not just reminding us about who is saving but also what is being safe and whether or not it's worth it and that maybe in rather going won't that mean fight because the city is den of iniquity prime that it doesn't matter because it's still worth saving joker these people have no moral code and have have no you know actually integrity when it comes to what they believe ambanis matters the city still was saving and finally being comes along as you know look there's this messaging thing about this being wide-scale inequality risky getting richer the poor poor there's exploitation ray in batman again you know to create the cemetery there is again the city is worth saying i think it was a lot on this movie for sharing i respect everybody's comments i thought on that one piece that's maybe it was possible to read too much into it thanks goddamn that was a good thing voicemail real good voicemail podcast talked a lot faster and more eloquently than i do real i totally am there with him on that like i i don't we've we touched on the political message or reading you could read in the film i don't think any of us necessarily saying that that's for sure what no one is saying i think in general is pretty a political and and that he just sees the conflict you know he likes the nature of that conflict thinks cinematic and and isn't necessarily taking sides it's just he's showing it like it is why i think there's an interesting question to be raised about when filmmaker thinks he's being being a political but critics think he's being political case in point didn't what's his newest movie called again which i wonder why they came out with tom hardy in a plane dunkirk dunkirk dunkirk dunkirk was was criticized because i guess through a through the lens of certain certain people i don't know which side of the aisle they're on but churchill's choice to sacrifice those people is not something that some people agree with and yet it was romanticized man-sized so maybe no one doesn't think he's being political but other people might put him on that pedestal i mean i is interesting by sort of display by deploying by displaying both sides of the argument to sort of create sort of a a multilevel sorta depiction of this city people sort of latch onto each side is being you know the political political statement of new movie when it's really i think to this sort of commenters point it's more about you know creating a world for batman to theoretically save more so than is about you know admonishing or you know going forward with one particular ideology over and that's how you know it's good art man because you can make arguments for both arguments man you know what i'm trying to say man you know good art i will say that i don't think no one he's never struck me as a particularly political filmmaker maker i think he's more interested in sort of existential identity issues that he is in you know politics yeah we got a whole bunch of emails about the politics thing and the one thing i'll say is that if nolan is a political filmmaker i don't think he so shallow as to say all right i'm gonna straw on the other side toward the argument is incoherent and then you know because that just seems cheap to me the fact that whatever baynes revolution is built off of is incoherent that doesn't strike me as a real attempt at criticizing ideology so now bean bean sucks all right let's one more from jacob hey wisecracks this i was just listening to your dark knight rises podcast and i just want to say that this pothole kind of makes me angry that whenever i think about it how does bruce wayne get from the lazarus pit back ticked off them city that never makes sense especially recent were you brought up which i never actually considered and even when i considered it still doesn't make that much sense he doesn't have his money at that point he doesn't have any access best to anything for him to get back to gossip not to mention of house even get back into gaza which i really don't understand i was wondering if you guys could expand expand upon that what do you think because how can he get from the middle of the desert tossing city anyway podcasts prettier from you and i hope that often you're feeling better that's all right but you guys by a he's batman be he's ninja see he's rich as fuck a billionaire and has had on at this point what not at this point he's broke you don't think he has cash or assets assets scattered and that's it it's another critique of capitalism because he has offshore accounts that not even bane knew about see as we go he is literally one desert walk away from you know from a bunch of gold that he can get back to america no problem i mean the guy industry industry get a cell phone i can almost guarantee chris and jonathan nolan had this conversation and they were like who cares he just gets there man take time and you remember when we kind of touched on this before we didn't go into detail remember when the dark knight rises preview came out in front of mission impossible four four and that was when the whole big thing about no one can understand what bain is saying did you did you see i did and i didn't i didn't understand what bain was saying i mike that i kind of liked it too and i remember that chris nolan was really resistant to the idea of re recording tom hardy's lines which ended up folding and doing because he said look it doesn't matter if you understand what the people are saying because of the context clues in the tone you'll get the gist you'll get enough and i kinda respect that yeah i mean no one's never been one just sort of walk you through all the steps he likes to cut into scenes he likes you know interesting editing choices i don't think he's the type of filmmaker who's going to tell you how bruce scott to gotham he's just going to jump to the actual story i think that's insane though the idea that you think that he thinks that that oh it doesn't matter if i have my video he said what he said this this isn't just my conjecture seen like i do watch guy and what what would that be like he goes to somebody's like hey can i get a ride to gotham like it would be silly to see i don't like kenny in south park you just get enough you don't know exactly what he's saying but the context clues work there's a lot of issues of plot flat issues with dark knight rises but i i don't have any issues with this one uh-huh honestly if kinney's leading an army and no one understands what he's saying that is hilarious if if if and to me that is a commentary if he's leading an army against gotham in everyone's like wait what did that guy say it's like that scene in life of brian when everyone's like what jesus say and they're like he said everyone gets cheeses jesus bless the cheeses i don't my favorite my favorite part of watching that before mission impossible for was aiding gillan plays the other actor opposite tom hardy and that scene he like axis assist can understand everything tom hardy is saying despite the fact that nobody else can i liked that dedication i like i like that it's weird and i enjoy it well here's my point my point point is is that i would imagine a similar logic applies to a lot of these plot holes and i think there is a sense of being a daredevil here you know if you take a filmmaker maker that's radically different from christopher nolan but think of david lynch at a certain point you realized i'm here for the tone i don't care i don't i'm not supposed to know what's going on and i think.
