"Liotta, who played the lead in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas, also struggled to avoid typecasting, as did Paul sorvino, who played his mentor in the film. Why would I want to get into that? Just don't do it. I want to talk to you about Jimmy. You got to watch out for him. And the once a gangster always a gangster thing didn't just happen to featured players quite a few of serving as Goodfellas henchmen found steady employment with suburban mafioso Tony Soprano a decade later, including Paul Herman, who played beansie. This maniac. Right from the Zeppelin standpoint. And Tony sirico, who played walnut sculpture. He would have been done. Still, this wave of modern mafia epics was just that, a wave that crested with The Sopranos, almost two decades ago. There are still occasional mob stories with Italian faces, but in recent years, a more egalitarian Hollywood has turned its attention to African American anti heroes. Asian cybercriminals, drug cartels from Latin America, and as the mafia recedes, so eventually must its interpreters. Do you ever feel like nothing good was ever going to happen to you? Yeah. And nothing did. So what? I'm alive. I'm surviving. All 5 of these actors still robust and working at the start of this year are now gone, which is perhaps unsurprising in actuarial terms, but still comes as a shock. We tend to freeze actors in the roles we best remember, Khan was in his early 30s when he made The Godfather, young, vital. What the hell is this? It's a city of message. But it's now a half century later. Leota was in his 30s, serving of RICO and Herman in their 40s and 50s

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.

"Getting asked questions by Martin score, says he who could not be laughing more consistently or harder throughout the whole thing. And then so they did a sketch about what the show is really like. And by the way, I thought that the friend Liebowitz impression was quite good going. Yang Yeah, a male cast member. Portraying her. It was very funny. The hair the outfit market spirits score says you just laughing so hard. The whole time was just fantastic. Here's a little bit of it this week that the New York City could reopen indoor dining by mid February. Here to comment are stars of the Netflix show pretended to city Fran Lebowitz and Martin Scorsese. Way are you doing, friend? And Marty is not gonna have you both here, Please. I think show bored at home. I was about to get married to my cufflinks. Let me tell you. I've done so many interviews in front of audiences. I have squatter's rights at the 92nd Street. Y okay. Well, I love the serious because to you just sitting and talking and Marty just losing his mind Price. He asked me my range. I said, I can sit and I can sit down. Please talks. They were Children and asked me. Should I be a writer? Should I be a filmmaker? I say no. Should be something useful. Be a piece of melon wrapped in prosciutto cadences. Kyle Mooney is my heart's courses. Oh, what a great impression was. Does anybody get it? And I know because not that many. I mean, I don't know how popular that show is. Maybe maybe it's I think has been trending at some point on Netflix. You know, like on the most popular clicked at some point, maybe I don't know. Well, whatever it is now, if you didn't know about the show, and you go and turn it on now, you will realize that that Fran Lebowitz impression is so great that you're exactly right. Done the cadence, the like the What's the word here, The up and down on the voice. There's a word for that. Inflection. That's the one is perfect. And truly when you watch the special You essentially just keep thinking respectfully and lovingly. Why is Martin score says even here? I know it's just to get just like this person is worth laughing at because we respect him. Yeah, right. Since he thinks she's funny, then we automatically think she's funny. You know, it is interesting about that. I am always wondering. OK, so you always see. Martin's crew says he's back right and then you see her, but she's not looking at him. She's looking the other way. She's always looking to her left to the other person that's there for they never named a I see this other guy go. Who is that? Yeah. Who's that guy sitting there? Because she's talking to him. You should be something useful. A piece of melon wrapped in pursuit of that. Very funny. I just hope it was my favorite thing about it is that I wasn't really no, I hated it. I didn't even like the machine gun Kelly performance. There was one sketch that I really feel like It. It Was not good. It was tone deaf. It was a bullying sketch, and John Krasinski plays this quarterback of the high school team. And he comes and finds that his you know, kind of puny little brother is being picked on by people out in front of the school. In the school yard, right? So he goes to defend his brother and listen at what happened. Oh, what's up, Loser? What you're eating there? I slipped a little comic book. Oh, what's a bangle? Give it back. Are you What?.

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

"Twitter at Melville Trust. This is NPR. Welcome back to Bull side. I'm Jesse Thorn. I'm talking with actor Isaiah Whitlock Jr He's performed in movies like Goodfellas and 25 Bloods. He played state Senator Clay Davis on the wire, and he's starring in the New Showtime. Syriza, Your Honor. Let's hear the rest of our conversation. You have a really wonderful start to your career on film. Here I am DP in your Wikipedia list two films in which you appeared in 1990, both of which Are profoundly beloved cult classics. One is Goodfellas and the others. The other is gremlins to the new batch. I have actually seen gremlins to the new batch. More recently, I saw that about eight months or a year ago. It's pretty amazing movie. Uh, can you tell me? Can you tell me how it came to be that you ended up in two pretty big movies to start your career, albeit in in in small roles. Gremlins two. I think I was like a fireman or something that might have been like the first her second movie that I that I did. I was really like trying to scratch things out. But Goodfellas was interesting because Had become a member of the actors studio. And Paul Newman was looking For some people to come over to his apartment and read the color of money. Uh, with Martin Scorsese, Tom Cruise. And I went over to to the part, but terms I'm sorry. I'm busy. Hey, plan, not new man a date, So it's like, Look, you know, I gotta go over to Paul's, uh, apartment and sit on the couch and read and he had a handful of people there and we're all sitting around and we're and we're reading the color of money. And of course, I wanted a part in the movie. And I didn't get a part in the movie. That part went to force Whitaker, but When good fellas came around. Went to audition for good, fellas. I got an audition for good fellas. And I got a call back and I got called back for Can't remember the actor's name. But the scene is when he's comes to Joe Pesci with the bill and Pesci hits him over the head with the bottle. He owns the restaurant or whatever. And I thought, what? There's no way they're going to cast B. In this part, but I got a callback. So I'm not going to say no. I haven't really done a movie. So I go and Walked in, and Scorsese says I know you from somewhere. And I said, Yeah, I did Those readings on the couch for the color of money. And he says, Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, that's great. That's great, He says. Well, look, the part you auditioned for You can't play that, But I do have this role of a doctor. It's a very, very small part, but it's very instrumental to the movie. It's the only guy that Henry Hill trust. He's all coked out and everything like that. Do you think you could do that for me? I know it's not much, but do you think you could do that? And inside? I'm saying Act like you've been there act like you've been there and I say Yeah, Yeah, sure. Marty. Yeah, I think I could do that. Oh, yeah? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And so, he said with Paul real quick, I'm going over there is a privately right? And that's how I ended up in Goodfellas. But at the time I kind of took it in stride until I started going out and I started telling people Yeah, you know, I got this part in this movie Goodfellas. And that was the big story was. How the hell did you get a part in Goodfellas? Which is called wise Guy at the time. And I was working a job at a restaurant. And there was one guy who actually said Look tomorrow I'm going down. I'm gonna audition for Goodfellas because of you got apart. I know I'm going to get a part. They must just be giving parts away in this movie if they hired you well, needless to say he didn't get apart and Screw him. It's bull's eye. I'm Jesse Thorn. My guest is actor Isaiah Whitlock. Junior. Um, your character on the wire. Clay Davis. He was briefly in the first season of the show, right you It was. It was just starting up when you went in. Did you get to read any hole scripts before you went in for that part? Or had you just seen little sides? No. The thing with wire is also very interesting because I was in season one in season two, but I was only supposed to be They're at a cocktail party. There was no story line. There was nothing written. It was just the state senator. After those they decided. Well, we should maybe do something with this. We should maybe do a story line and When they called me to come back. For season three. I initially said no, because I thought it was just gonna be This sort of cocktail party stuff. And I was doing a fellow in Alabama. And I said, No, I can't be bothered. I just I'm not gonna go. And my agent called me, he says. Are you sure said No. I said, I'm too little fellow down here in Alabama. I can't be concerned with some little cocktail party. And, um, they finally convinced me to go and David Simon pulled me aside and said, Now we've got this whole thing set up this whole story line where you're gonna be ripping off the drug dealers and things like that, and they think they're ripping you off and you're gonna be ripping them off, and that's when I got excited about it. But I was never ever on their radar from the beginning. Was the show on your radar. I mean, did you realize by then what it was, You know, not many folks were watching it at the time. Yeah, I did, because I had a lot of friends on the show and You know, I mean, I thought the show was great. I just didn't really at the time just didn't see myself in it. And then when I got on it Could admit this now. My biggest fear was that I said, Don't be the weak link. This is like a great show. Don't be the weak link. Don't be the got, you know, they say Oh, yeah, the wire and then that guy Isaiah Whitlock. Other than that. The show's like fantastic, But I was terrified. I was just terrified. You know, I said this could go One of two ways, but that being said, I had the courage enough to do what I wanted to do. And when I was at the American Conservatory Theater, the artistic director Bill Ball would always say fail big. If you're going to fail, fail big. So I thought, OK, I'm going to fail big and kind of go forward and play what I feel or what I think this character should be. There was a period where I thought I know they're gonna fire me. But then I also thought, you know if they don't like it, they can always cut it. But nobody ever said anything to me, and they just kind of let me Continued to create and it was that freedom that they gave me that allowed me to just even do more stuff and solidify that character. How did you feel the impact of your work on the wire to folks talk to you about it every day every day. It At the end of the wire. David Simon came to me and he said, You know, you know you're gonna have to live with the catchphrase and everything like that. And I didn't believe him. I thought not, You know, a year from now, nobody's gonna Really paid too much attention to it, but There's a few things there one. I had to live with the catch phrase, but I also saw how the character affected people. It's like you're a bad guy, and you're going to make people love you. It would be so easy to just sort of dismiss the character. But The key is to make people like you and make people enjoy you when they see you, and I thought I was able to do that on this show. And then fast forward to today, people still feel that way..

She's not right. Right. She's a public speaker who isn't doing one liners. Necessarily. Yeah, she's telling a story. Yeah, you know, she reminded me of In her comedic delivery, huh? Our bus. I was sure that I was like, Oh, she kind of reminds me of B r that he kind of does have how she delivers these lines and a little bit of like the raspy voice. She's very funny. Yes, I kinda gotta you're an idiot Vibe, too. You know that line of like you would take the Dalai Lama one subway subway right to become an absolute lunatic and starts laughing.

It's so good or killing. His brother is also on the crew, which is so funny how he works his brother in and it's just a very heart warming, different kind of travel food show. That's me. You know, I also saw Okay. That's Netflix. You said Yes. OK, feet first. I got to check that out. Also. I saw that Stanley Tucci has it. I think he has like a food related show.

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

Schultz from starbucks and business, and I think I think Mardi did one on filmmaking Al. can you please not do that? Absurd to what the thing where people call Martin Scorsese Marty like they know him personally. I didn't even know that was the thing with Marty. Stop Calling Marty I have the right to call him Marty. Okay, that's what his friends call him. They call him. Marty, your friends with Martin Scorsese okay. Honestly. Not Best Friends. But when he calls me a pick up the phone, and I answer Lou and he says hey, it's Marty. And then usually starts talking really fast about some old foreign film and I'm like Okay Marty slowdown God but I love that guy. He's A. He's actually probably listening. Shutout to Marty. If you're listening, please Dylan and the kids I say Hello Ron. How do you know Martin Scorsese Oh wow, you are! You are really taking me back now Carolina. I guess it had to be around the summer of nineteen eighty. One because I was in new. York at the time Yeah, that'd be right. That's when Joe strimmer introduced me to Mardi. Wait hold on. You knew Joe Drummer. What do you know him? Yeah he had a little band at the time, the oath, the smash or something clash. Yes, they were called the class. Yes, I know who joe strimmer is I'm just surprised you. Do I knew him well. Nice Guy but he did screw me on a news story. One Time I. Remember I was doing a piece on how a venue called bonds casino had oversold a bunch of concert tickets for Joe's Goofy punk band, they are a really good ban run. They were called the clash anyway. I went down to the venue, looking for riots and violence in a bunch of young dangerous punk rockers, kids with spiked hair, throwing bricks around telling their parents to put it with a sun don't. Don't shine. It was it was going to be a sizzler for the news that night. Let me guess that's not what happened. So not at all good guests. Yeah, it was all very peaceful and boring because Joe strimmer and his band, which for some reason, these weird kids wanted to see agreed to play extra shows for every kid who bought a ticket, which was a standard thing to do, but if I would've said tough luck. You know this is sort of a legendary story in rock history well. It was a terrible news story that night in Nineteen eighty-one. I'm sorry. How do we get on this topic? Oh all right. You were questioning whether or not I. Ron Burgundy was close enough. Friends with Martin Scorsese to call him Marty I just find it a little surprising that you were part of such a specific moment in pop culture history. If you haven't figured out by now, Ron, burgundy is full of surprises, okay? And if you don't believe me, you can ask. WHO! Martin yes Marty. We can just report the answer to the show. Please if we can just get that going masterclass people will be calling back soon with their final. Actually we're running short on time and we want to get the ads recorded. You ran out last time so suggesting we just do those I all right all right fair enough. Let's do an ad break and then I'll get a little drunk. have some eggs and we can.

"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

"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.

S. B. bang Russia's security service and that was the first in in a in a long line of evidence that really pointed to two year involvement by the Russian state security apparatus in these the series of bombings that was so deadly in Moscow now they have us be had been headed by Vladimir Putin before his ascent to power and so the fact that the F. S. B. had its fingerprints on these bombings indicated that he could have potentially been involved and certainly the impact of those bombings was to allow peace and to build this platform from which he could fulminate against that the threat of these Chechen rebels and as I say build himself up as this kind of strong mon and it really set the stage for his presidency which has really been built around this I dare for storing Russian greatness and Russian might do you write in the book that covert killing was a particularly Soviet form of state craft this this goes back decades we me that's right so you targeted assassination was it was a kind of tool of state Croft that requested for many years in the hands of the KGB the Soviet state security agency the KGB was famous for refining the kind of art and science of targeted killing and have you know of having weapons labs and poisons factories that churned out kind of weapons of assassination like rice and tips on brothers famously for example lipstick pistols were exploding cigarette packets new KGB famous name was behind the assassination of Leon Trotsky with an ice pick you know that there were many notorious and brazen can to billing to assassinations during that the Soviet era that had that capability had ready dwindled since the fall of the Soviet Union and it was ready when the ten came to power and piece of himself having come up through the ranks of the KGB I'm being ready I'm a student and a kind of major fanboy if that of the Soviet Union and does the case eBay who grew up reading stories have of you named Katie being spied Croft that he really began to pull resource back into tooling up the Russian state security apparatus to you know to once again re engage in the office of targeted assassination with with some really creative means there is poisoning and radiation and that kind of thing that's right yeah I'm a part of what the you know research established was not used in house in a very constructive way you know I poured resources into a number of the pirate trees in which government scientists just dedicate their lives to the development of weapons and poisons which are designed to kill without leaving a trace so we know that the Russian state has a whole armory of of of poisons which is designed to try to for example fast acting **** says or to trigger cardiac arrest or even psychotropic drugs which are designed to destabilize enemy targets to you know mood altering substances which can create their parents thought the person has plunged into a very deep and profound depression and one of the things our intelligence sources who talked to us about is is the study of suicide clusters in which there is a suspicion not the Russian state may have either driven individuals to kill themselves or has so successfully destabilize them dot when that deaths are made to look like suicides as a pretext in which that that can be made believable because that behavior in the weeks leading up to that justice has been served disorders now a lot of the Russian exiles who became opponents and eventually targets of the Kremlin some former oligarchs and in some cases not the most admirable of people seem to settle in Great Britain why was it a favored destination for these exiles well those ways kind of made the perfect playground for the super rich Russians here he slides driving if he sends regime because it's a place where you know that there is a kind of degree of respectability about investing your money in the United Kingdom but actually the fight the vagaries of the precious financial system make it very easy to establish shell companies with very little scrutiny into which money can be managed and it's actually has been historically and and to some extent still to this day very easy to plow huge amounts of money in to purchase properties process companies in British banks without a huge amount of scrutiny from the authorities and so you you know it is possible for these Russian run aways to come to person to expatriate huge fortunes and reinvest them to you and then also to to kind of loan to that reputations into the west by sending their children to some of the most prestigious public schools that Britain has to affect him making endowments to the colleges of of leading universities in Britain buying up some of the most prestigious stately homes in the country and really kind of crossed in a life that that bore all the hallmarks of kind of British establishment respectability that which was funded entirely by money much of which had been helping inner expatriated from Russia in fatty corrupted GPS instances a lot of what you deal with in this book is the British government's attitude towards the suspicious deaths how did the government generally regard these oligarchs of arriving from Russia and and and for that matter in a British the business interests in Russia how did they figure into the British government's attitude towards these events well they're kind of in flight of Russian money into the British colony has been a major player and particularly given the decline of the British manufacturing industry industry in increasing reliance on financial services to prop up the pressure to come to me so there's been a great eagerness on the part of the British authorities to welcoming these these Russian run aways and to dole out investment visas which which are basically ground so you know the right to remain in the country to those who can afford to invest yeah right because it sums of money in the economy and say that this being the in in lots of ways you know decision by government kind of roll out the red carpet and let wealthy Russians into the country and and you know as a result fatty soon to prison came to power huge sums of money you know tens of billions a year were pouring into the pressure to come to me from these these wealthy Russian oligarchs and had been attracted hair I'm and will say you know from from major Russian companies fighting on the London Stock Exchange and also some other routes and you know at the same time Britain is a major investor in in Russian energy projects as well say there are also serve reasons wanted to purchase government has being keen to preserve thought flow of Russian money into person but at the same time fairly soon off to this kind of cost of Russian runaways arrived it became clear that they were companies Bonnie some pretty major security threats and I think that's why the British government found itself in a bit of a double blind wanting to welcome these enemies of the Russian state in but then also not wanting to have a confrontation with the Kremlin when threats to their lives imagine versus oil Heidi

in Britain so it's just a little bit about his days in Russia and how we ran afoul of Vladimir Putin Boris Berezovsky was it was known in Russia as the godfather of the older dogs because he was
