Literally every jason bourne film also wrote and directed michael clayton and william blake. Herron who. I don't even know why his credit for this like only got one other movie credits he's credit created as the co writer. So i guess he did stuff here. He came into some rewrites.

"Unfortunately this Shithole has more fucking leaks in the Iraqi navy. Fuck Yourself. I'm tired from fucking your wife. How's your mother good? She's tired from fucking my father. You have a job Tom. I'm a firefighter. Oh God bless you a hero. I'm not hero. We'd all be here. We could use the petroleum. No excuse me Christmas. Utah a lot of fucking money. What did you do? I mean if you take away nothing else for my class from this experience let it be this. If you're not a genius don't bother right. The world needs plenty of electricity and a lot of them are happy and they can help. It really can't be that we can always do. Better let me keep trying. If you guys keep trying I'm shawn fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about Mark Wahlberg. This episode may break the all time record for big picture dissonance later in the show. I have an interview with Kelly. Reichardt the writer and director behind independent film classics. Like old joy. Meek's cutoff in the new film. First cow which might be the best movie of Two Thousand Twenty so far. I hope you'll stick around for that but I were joined by the frog. Sheriff Chris Ryan. I heard that Mark. Wahlberg actually dropped out of first cow. He was gonNA play the cow Alao. But you're already doing animal. Humor here on driver too is calling. Chris. You're here because you're a fan of Mark Wahlberg work. He's The star of a new movie. That is hitting Netflix. This Friday called Spencer confidential. I think gets his fifth film with Peterberg. The actor turned director of such films as lone survivor and deepwater horizon. This is a very strange movie but I think it's going to be a a very watched movie because the corona virus is scaring America into staying inside their house. And so I think that there's a potential for a lot of viewership of this movie. So we're talking about Mark Wahlberg one of the most resilient and persistent movie stars. I guess of the past twenty five years so let's just start with WHO is Mark Wahlberg. How did this happen? That Mark Wahlberg became one of the signature figures of movies in the twenty first century. I would not say I'm a fan of Mark Wahlberg as like I'm a I'm agnostic as a citizen. Yeah I would say that. I am very interested in the way that he has conducted his career. Which is kind of a weird throwback to a studio systems our he makes three to four movies every eighteen months somehow and just releases them at like a hugely prolific rate at. I'm fascinated by all the little pockets of his career that he has created where he repeats. You know he goes back to these little micro genres that he and he works a lot of people over and over again by the way he kind of has conducted his career to me is almost unique among Hollywood movie stars anymore. I mean most of the time when people achieve a certain level success. They just like see in three years for my next blockbuster or award fodder and he's just like nope. I'm grinding out. Family movie violent action film and then every once in a while Raunchy comedy and it's just like pretty pretty like unique among all Hollywood stars so I'm fascinated. What do you make them Amanda? I was fascinated when going back to you. Remember how many great directors he's worked with and how many actually excellent movies he's been in. Chris was asking me how much we watching I had to do for this podcast and the answer is a lot. Because I wouldn't say that Mark Wahlberg stays with me besides certain shots that will certainly be discussed on this podcast but he especially I guess in the first decade of this century just goes on a tremendous run. I really from Boogie nights on and works with a does a lot of really great movies and then kind of decides to just become like the Peterberg comedy guy in the second decade of the century. And I it's a really interesting shift. He just Kinda decides no. I'm going to do this now. And it's very fascinating to me I can't really make sense of. I also is Christmas talking about his efficiency. Just pulled up his daily schedule. Do you guys remember the days? Will he wakes up. Like four o'clock in the morning posted this on his own instagram typical daily scheduled to thirty. Am Wake Up. What don't you forty five prayer time. Three fifteen am breakfast. There's a lot of work work. He's golfing from seven thirty to eight. Which is the golf people? And there's a chamber recovery at nine thirty that takes more time than golf workout number two lunches and our so our meeting slash work calls also an hour and he goes to bed at seven thirty PM and which in Los Angeles for. I'd say six at least six months of the year. That is still broad daylight. Yeah Yeah Su. There is real efficiency baked into this. He's clearly very deliberate guy. He's making choices. And I think that pertains to his daily life and also his his career. There is clearly thought going into this. It's not a type of thought. I can access. I still don't know why you would wake up at two thirty and I don't know why you would do like five deep water horizons. There's a rumor that he has a routine. I think you. I'm speculating here. But I think he's a member of Wilshire Country Club here in Los Angeles. My husband told me this last night and he likes to play alone. He likes to play. And that's why he's playing so early in the morning and he's trying to get in like a quick nine or quick eighteen. I don't know five days a week which I'm who among? Us would love to do that if I could wake up before five. Am I would do it. I'll tell you I would love to do that. I'll tell you something else I am. I find golf to be social and I get crippled like when I play by myself. I'm like all the neurosis is creeping like. Should I take another shot now like it really playing golf? If you're not playing with anyone can just tell you. He's got three snacks on the schedule. Including one that takes an hour and a half from eight to nine thirty. Am is snack after seven. Thirty to eight am golf. Probably a euphemism. Oh Okay so you think. His sessions are ninety minutes. So you're saying to jump off something. Amanda said You know who? He reminds me of a bizarre way Cruz. Where it's like that run. Where cruises like I'll just work with Barry Levinson Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg and every great director at it seems like I'm just the most important factor in the whole world and then one day he wakes up and says I'M GONNA make action movies for the rest of my life? It's very unlikely though. I mean his origins restraints obviously member of this very well known family. He's from Massachusetts. He starts out as a a rap artist and ultimately becomes a Calvin Klein M. C. An. Mc Yes we watched the vibrations video. Recently I took my top five twenty two. Would you make of good vibrations? And and how did you feel about the funky bunch all these years later? It's just really bizarre that this was a thing that we lived through. Who is the funky bunch? I I still don't know who's in it. Were you in a Chris? Thought it was the backup dancers. I mean yes. That's who they were but like do you know anything about them and where they are now. I was pretty. Yeah I was pretty. I was pretty authentic back then so I was. I was already listening to deep deep newer. Grab I love talking about the early nineties with you. Can we talk about the Calvin Klein ads for a second really really important? You're almost put these on my list. And it's and my honorable mention boxer briefs. Yeah I was still a boxer sky back then that was not interested in the product. Would you just tear the ads out of the magazine? Crumpled them up and throw them in the garbage. I think that the those are the signature moment in his career without the advertising campaign he would not have become weirdly Tom Like sub Tom Cruise but he you know. He soared to a of fame on that ad campaign. They're just extremely important. Ninety s imagery obviously came as also in them. And that's where the whole K. Moss thing starts Them Hating each other. Great early celebrity feud they're very important that's all and also it looks great. I mean he and his image was of basically like a tough guy with a bad attitude whether that was true or not he obviously got into some altercations and his his personal history is pretty complicated. We're not gonNA spend too much time talking about on this show. But I think that he basically leveraged his complicated persona in the public into a movie career and if you look at the first few movies that he makes replays these kind of like weird intimidating Undeveloped YOUNG MEN. You know in the basketball diaries in. Ryen Russillo favorite movie fear And even in boogie nights. There's something like violently adolescent about his his persona which is very different from the kind of actor and movie star that he is right now so a lot of times. I think that we could. You could write like a series of essays about how much actors of his generation have attempted to mimic the kind of like rough and tumble blue collar upbringing. That Walberg apparently had like how how often like DiCaprio Damon or these guys have tried to be like no I'm Jim Carroll and he's just a function Carol I'm the real thing but it's weird like even in his authenticity. If you WANNA call it that he still lacks like any kind of emotional intelligence or psychological depth to portraying those things and you could write all these essays. But you could just watch the departed. Because that's what this does that. Do you need that from an actor? Do you need to feel like this person is like in control and has that depth that Chris was talking about? I think I do ultimately. I think that there is a reason that I gravitate to Matt Damon instead of Wahlberg. And I think that you not just because of the departed and the Boston. Bill will talk about that a lot as a comparison but I like I said I really remember a lot of Walberg performances. Even though he's been given a lot of great ones and I think that's because they have a I don't WanNa say surface level. That's unfair. They're actually a lot of depth but they aren't the emotional depths and I think I personally don't hang onto those. I think I'm always wondering how in command of the Ark of his career. He is because you pointed out he makes he's. I mean he's just been a lot of great movies a lot of movies that are going to stand the test of time and it always seems like he's being cast the way that a lot of young actresses or cast as the. Nayef as the like the naive and innocent who gets corrupted when put into a system and like did someone in a room. Say That to him. This is your lane man will early like you think so. Well I just don't think that he I think he's largely in charge of the movies that he makes. Now he's like. I think that the movies that we see our movies that Mark Wahlberg once made for the most part and my suspicion is the reason he made that transition. Amanda was referencing about just mostly doing action. Comedy movies now is because those movies are more fun and easier to make for him there either like a physical challenge there like a day on the set whereas making boogie nights as hard Russell Smart. Yeah I think that he is both like sinking very strategically as the schedule would suggest and also like not over thinking it i. That's the VIBE. I guess sometime at the end of the day he's going like it very much is what it is. He is a very Surface level or just immediate actor. That's that's what you're getting and so I think he wants. He gets to produce the movies himself and make the decisions. You just kind of like. Yeah action comedies. Got There before we get into our top fives and I think we should figure out what we mean. When we say top five if it's five performances or his top five movies because there's some complexity. There is a very strange celebrity. The the nine eleven thing is you're staring right at. It's just hanging over my head as I think about him as a public person. So in twenty twelve Walberg was quoted in a magazine interview regarding. What would have happened if he had flown aboard American Airlines Flight? Eleven on September eleventh. Two thousand one. He'd been booked on a flight on flight. Eleven but his plans changed the day before the scheduled flight and he cancelled his reservation. Walberg received public criticism for stating quote. If I was on that plane with my kids it wouldn't have went down like it did and there would have been a lot of blood in that first class cabin and then me saying okay. We're going to land somewhere safely. Don't worry Warburg apologized for those statements. But they're actually the sort of thing that kind of inform his public persona and when we watch him in an action movie. We think that he's the kind of guy who's like I would have kicked some ass on nine eleven which I don't know if you like complicates the quality of the films that he makes but I can't get stuff like that. Outta my head once I've read or heard about it and I feel like we've referred back to it even in a joking fashion over the years right. Yeah it is definitely one of the top three things that I think about. When someone says Mark Wahlberg schedule yeah nine eleven yeah and the last night of prosthetic but like you know. I'm human beings. It's the point of the movie full movie as leading to that so yes I agree. It's funny he is both. I think very funny as a comedic actor like entirely humorless and it's that some things he's in on the joke on some things he's just kind of being like no I would have save. I would have stopped nine eleven. Which is just a ridiculous thing to say. And that's the joke of Andy Sandberg's say Heidi Mother for me. Yeah you know portrayal of him is this is like he's kind of total rube but also not. There's something very elusive about. Whatever's going on with an entourage thing it's like. Do you watch entourage because you think it's completely ridiculous or do you watch entourage because you think it's like six awesome representative drama and I dare to say that Mark Wahlberg is like Yup? That's how it went. I you probably think you're right. Insulin entourage Ari comes on and it's really like Whoa but most but he's like that's accurate me. Like Vince is very much living my experience. He's like we should make a show about it. I think. I think that you guys are right. Do you think that this should be five performances or top five movies I choose? I don't know I don't know where I landed. I think I did I tried to be interesting here but I I wouldn't say that any of these performances leap out at me except for my number one and number two as like excellent performances. They're more like movies. I really like was he ever given a truly great performance. Yes I I think. There's one and a half great performances on this movie and it's just a half is the end of boogie nights. No no I. Well that might be the case now. There's another movie I still did performances but I think they are. They are a little bit also an award for the movie knowing how best to use him right. Okay well then let's get into it. Let's go into our top five Mark Wilbur performances slash movies number five Amanda. Why don't you start us off? This goes out to Bill Simmons and apparently to right who I still have never met. Hello Ryan. I'm going with fear. Why not whow revisit? Yes I did okay okay seen Djing
'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
Our Alternative Academy Awards The Oscars Show
"Guys. Welcome to a very special conversation. Nations show about the Academy Awards but not just any Academy Awards are Academy Awards. were changing things up in the big picture this week. We've invited wisely from the New York Times we think for being here. Thanks for having me. Three Person Person Academy that makes us the Grammy Selection Committee. Hopefully less fraught less racist racist sexist and complete Taylor swift at Ed. Sheeran her part of my mom and I want the academy to tell the truth about who it is fun. Fact Taylor swift and Ed Sheeran had movie moments in the last twelve months. If you recall cheering yesterday Taylor Swift. Of course Miss Americana could forget. we're not going to be nominated for you said Miss Americana Either GonNa cats. That was yeah. That's very generous of you sir. I've locked that out we. We're not talking about that on this. PODCAST CAST now. We got the part right. Okay guys so every year the Oscars come around get very angry because they don't represent all the movies that we want to to be celebrated this year I would say it's been an unusually positive Oscar year in terms of nominations. However we got stuck in this conversation about why are there no female directors in the best director category? Why are there so few actors of color? Why are there so few uncut gems nominations are there so many things here we may? They disagree with that. We will discuss. I'm I'm your evolving. I'm evolving exactly the way to put it all evolving. Wesleyan a minute can you guys. Just give me coming some big picture feelings about where the Oscar nominating process is before we dig into our own awards well Without going into the Math Jeff on how the nomination determined at least in the best picture category whatever they did to make them less foreign needs to change because in addition just like I just wrote a piece for the paper Abou a complicated problem I have with. This year's show is the first time more. I'm I feel like the homogeneity among the best picture nominees just superficially is Kinda monotonous to me. What do you mean but up I mean basically what I mean. Is that lake. There are nine move. Eight movies about white people And like the the white experience yes there is a wide experience. PODCAST is often expanding on and in one from Korea or South Korea. And I I like all of these movies except for one and a half of them and so so. The thing that I am annoyed about is that there isn't it is not as though there's one movie that didn't get nominated that should have that also featured Richard people who are not white so my problem is more of an industry. Problem in the Oscars of course is a symptom of this larger thing. And so I'm Kinda just. I went back just to do some math on on on. How many movies among the nominees for best picture since they expanded ten were set the present and usually I mean the thing? That's thrilling about the best picture. Nominees every year is that you do get some really interesting story that gets told about the movie industry but also just the movies and something about this collection of movies as a collection as a class of films kind of bores me and but again like I like most of the nominees and so I don't know it's a weird place but they they have to change them. I think the man is part of this like even I don't like Hustler's that much but you this. This group of movies needs it. Needs it needs needs like a blindside. It needs a district District nine yeah. It needs a district night but you think that so. That's I think it's math don't you because don't what's the one film that would have resolved some of that feeling. Is that the farewell. Like what is it. I don't even see that's the weird thing also. I don't even care care what it was because I don't like any of the alternative. This is weird year for for the solution to this problem. There isn't one. There's no main waves. Waves would be a movie that would that would be more interesting but every year since they expanded ten has had just more interesting stuff. It I have a theory and it's not about math and I think your point about math is good and also your point that this is these are eight movies about white people is also important. uh-huh any everything we're about to say is not going to change that but I do just and it's not GonNa Change the industry and it's not GonNa Change. WHO GETS to make movies? Unfortunately but I do wonder if some of it is also like our expectations and our relationship to the nominees because we're used to being dissatisfied and we're used to findings something that to be mad about and since they've gotten to ten and especially in the last couple of years years. There are more movies that I'm excited about that are nominated for best picture. And even this year I would say they're five movies like jazzed about same same here and I'm not used to that and so I do think and and we're part of doing this podcast and talking about the Oscars is arguing talking about what was snubbed. And what the economy isn't representing. and I wonder if some of the boringness is just kind of. I don't know where to put all of that energy for what interesting that I hear that that particular aspect of this year's race though I think is an anomaly. I think there's two reasons for at one. We we just happen to get a couple of films from a couple of people who kind of always make big noisy special films. Martin Scorsese Quentin Tarantino. We got a couple of movies marriage story and the Irishman that probably would not have been financed by any other studio that got a lot more money than they would have gotten and so those movies got pushed up to the top. You know I know you guys probably not huge joker Fans but that's a highly unusual kind of movie to have been made in the way that it was position. Marketed the success that had had and also the parasite thing is. There's just no literally literally no precedent for a movie like this getting this much awareness appreciation potentialities to win The the fact that this is impossible right now is was utterly unpredictable. Even even in September I ran so I think accounting for this year in particular as a bellwether of any kind and is a little bit difficult long term. But the point that you're making one hundred percent right which is that you know. There's a certain kind of movie that still is always going to get made in Hollywood and there's a certain kind the movie that it's still really hard to get made that's movies by women's moving movies by filmmakers of color starring people of color about different kinds of experiences in the world. So that's not going to change. I think some of what we're we're GONNA do here accounts for that. I think some of the categories that were creating accounts for that. Yes I think. In general though the public perception of the Oscars is it's a little bit. Stodgy it's a little bit boring self-satisfied but also it doesn't really understand what's fun about movies no well that's part of I mean to the degree agree that there is a selection committee. It's People's self consciousness about their with. They want their tastes to be. Yes yeah and that to me is part of what I'm sensing about this group. The best picture nominees though I feel like I do feel like despite the fact that I actually could not subtract one of these movies or there's a ten slot at the tenth movie like what I mean. You could additive movie proud interesting lake. Ed Lee said in the president and at least about the thing that is seemingly the problem by gathering these movies together race Which member of the knives out family is each? That's a good game that somewhere. Oh I like that. We don't have to answer that right now but just trying to think of the Google anyway I but I but I also think that part of the problem. I think some of the things that I'm feeling is this. I mean I don't know it seems like a revenge against the way things seem to be going. Otherwise yes but you can't prove that a and I mean I'm arguing against my own myself right now but it's unprovable. It's just a feeling that I have a feels like every time they do these blind surveys of these academy members. There's always somebody who's like well. I don't think we have a diversity problem. I just think the movies that Star Wall you know other people uh-huh aren't as good as the ones right or even just that was nice. But it's not an Oscar film which covers all manner of sentence and that shows up in. Everyone knows that there is an Oscar film which there's been an Oscar film since like nineteen thirty nine like that's part of the problem. Yeah I don't know when it got so not. How did you no one team seventeen despite how much I love? It smells ker movie. It is twenty when I was fifteen. I did not think that was pejorative. In fact I thought that that was was meaning really really meaningful. My perception of it is changed or self conscious about it. That's an parasite actually wins. I'm going to feel really freaked out. Because does that mean that I'm basic because is the movie that I want to win also won the Academy Award. I just called aging. Yeah well I don't know I don't feel the way by moonlight. Yeah now more so feels like the exception and to me even though I mean in a weird way. Here's a good test of this of this question. The departed. I always think about the idea that departed is a best picture winner. You know what I mean. I think if the departed was directed by Guy Ritchie though it would have had no chance at the Oscars yes of course. The Scorsese. Only the Scorsese UNISOM did that but just looking at it. As a movie rate lake. That was the best picture of what was it. Two thousand six six. I just it just kind of. It's a funny thing. It's a funny thing that wasn't i. I wasn't the best movie of that year. Obviously are not obvious. It's funny that you bring that up. We actually just talked talked about that. Exact movie a couple of days ago show in that movie yeah. It's a totally fun and slightly. You need us. Yes Oh sure. Yeah what what other the way. I don't know actually actually. Actually what's going on with Matt Damon in that movie. Congratulations him okay. So if we were going to change James the telecast a little bit What what there was talk of this last year? About modifying the telecast. But I don't want to modify the telecast per se but I think that there's some categories that maybe we don't needed some categories and maybe we do need okay. I'm personally I just don't believe that. The shorts need to be in the Academy Awards No one watches them their unseen by the by the public at large. Are You mad at that. You want the short sustain gas. I do why I don't know but the idea. We will not a part of the rest of the conversation but is that really how it works. I mean I'm but you're talking to the wrong person and a win aware like I actually wish they had brought. I want to see the best bluegrass album winter. I WANNA see best. Okay I WANNA see best. Best Ja- best traditional jazz album. I WanNa see that person person win. You're in dangerous territory women. I personally would like there to be a nine hours. Oscar ceremony right. Amanda wants to get through this fairly quickly vision show. You're saying it's its own not work of art. But it's least its own entity that needs to have a start and a finish on a structure and momentum and energy we can't just like trot got out every single movie clip that Sean is like for the past seventy years and then let's talk about this cinematography. I'm and this one's like to the telestrator up with the old Oscar broadcast that were nobody really. There was no Internet for people to run to and complain. I mean it just ended when it ended and it was full of supporting clips. I mean for a lot of America. They didn't know who Pauline Collins was. They wanted to see like surely Valentine. What does that clip? This is good so you get a clip Pauline Collins Acting Shirley. Valentine know what you get is a weirdly spliced moment of an actor doing the most over the top contacts list part of a movie you have. If you don't know where Iran Iran remember. What Julia Roberts Best Actress Clip West Pretty woman? It was her singing kiss in the Jacuzzi.
"matt damon" Discussed on CarCast
"Theaters Friday November fifteenth sought loved it done so many movies Logan three ten to huma which I enjoy so much. Wolverine girl interrupted. I forgot that that was you So good on you good to see again to see you again. I love the film. I had done a documentary on the film or the theme of the film and I'd also just finished one on Carroll Shelby so going in I was was worried that I knew too much. I knowing you're seeing it. I was worried that you knew much. The good news is I really don't know anything so I enjoy the hell out of this thing and I thought you know what you're trying to get you you try and get the details right of course but you're also trying to capture in a dramatic attic movie that you can't do as much in documentary is you're trying to recreate a feeling or a vibe or a tone you're trying to understand something about the personality these guys that that they might hide from a from documentary camera or something. They may not show when they're doing an interview. Like this trying to get in a way behind the mask What are they dealing with? You know what are they haunted by. What are they chasing? And there's so many interesting aspects to these characters obviously the cars are interesting but carroll shelby he's top notch racer in nineteen fifty nine winning Lemond an Aston Martin and suddenly finds out. He's got a heart condition. We never race again cannot get behind the wheel again right. What does that do? I mean you can only imagine if he were suddenly told that all that joy and adrenaline and excitement and obsession you have about something is suddenly redirected. And you can't do it anymore. Ever on a certain day and that he he had to re imagine his life on a day's notice and turned all that passion into building and designing and managing races. And that's so interesting. Then you take a cat like can miles. WHO SPENT HIS PRIME YEARS Fighting World War? Two as a tank engineer comes to this country still wants to be a driver there is also interesting. I'm not a big motor sports guy in that I learned it all watching and making this movie and watching all the research but can miles els is also an example of a day and age when when the drivers could also fix their own cars. You know that that these were people who understood dude who built the car where the people drove the car. Yeah you had to sort of where a couple of hats back. Then and a lot of those shelby guys has a guy named John Morton whose was a shelby driver and then he moved on with Pete Brock. Pete Brock built. The Daytona famously. Won The manufacturer's I championship is seen in the movies while these guys drove and built right there their own cars. And there's a romance to that I I mean I I wanna say it's better or worse. I think that as we all get more specialized there is something that were robbed of. which is that kind of renaissance man or woman of racing or anything that the people who build something start from zero and deliver it to the final destination? There's something romantic about that. That is Louis. Modern life has gone on. We get robbed of we. Don't we don't get to understand that kind of pride and yeah so when you talk to modern day race car drivers he says a gearhead and they're telling the driving f one car and I go. What's the displacement on the motor? And they don't know I don't know I might feeling like I get it. They're good at what they do but if there was a barbecue Q.. Join and it was run by a Vegan. I wouldn't go in on a guy who you know who knows. Listen live does he get tiredness. Own Supply yes. I want that and also the cars back then because I've talked a lot of these guys who race Aloma. Aw then and now and then it was a lot of about endurance reliability. Famously in the movie I won't give give it away but Phil Remington the designer engineer. extraordinaire comes up with a way to make the brakes lasts longer and Blah Blah Blah. They had to drive. I've interviewed Dan Gurney on this. They had to make those cars last now. The drive the car at ten tents for the whole race because everything synthetic and the cars are so durable computers work and everything and doing everything that they don't have to simultaneously race the car and sort of maintain the car. No it's it is so different now I mean what makes Lamont so interesting And was for me as I did. The research on the movie was then it is not a car is not a race that is all just as it was first created as a race. It wasn't only about winning. It was about surviving. It was it was. It's a racist old as you. Well know as the automobile itself and was a way of putting cars on a road and seeing who had built a vehicle that could would just stand that kind of usage that kind of test. A lot of what crosses the finish line. Element is not about people who have fallen into tenth or twentieth the position but usually about people who just fall away in the past. I think that's is true anymore but no and there was a strategy. I mean it. Send one guy out to be the rabbit right. Hopefully the other guy with chase them and break right in the that. That is the point. And then you have these cars. Because it's a dawning moment in car design the cars themselves e more personality because they're a little more lopsided you know they're now we've I've got no this kind of tipping point where they can with computer design and just experience. The cars are all pretty good all around. There was a time when you might have a car that was nimble. But but it wasn't it was it didn't have the talk that another car had you might have like. Gt Forty had all this power but what they were. They knew from the moment they had kind of put that engine in the forty. At least as I understand it they kind of knew they were faster than anyone else. They just didn't know if they can stop or turn so the the reality is each. Each car has such a unique personality. And and you get to see these these these racers and and shelby in the pits. And they're all and REMINGTON. They're all all dealing with the unique personality of the monster. They've created a Ferrari too in the sense that the Ferrari has its advantages and disadvantages the I notice a lot a lot of filming at Willow Springs which is a track. I'm very familiar with and I was thinking as I was watching hot. They're cool. I mean when we the shooting the guy is. I don't know how they don't sweat. I never know this about movie stars. What why what what they do to make the sweat never occur? We're shooting in one hundred and twenty degrees. And I you know I have obviously looked like a overheated lobster. Right clinging to a slice of watermelon but but the the shoot itself. You're you don't feel that you feel the joy of that. Well it is that it. I was transported back. It made me want to race and DR driving out for the weekend with a bunch of gear heads and tooling around one of these beautiful tracks. It's beautiful willow springs as I was watching the movie and I've done a professional transam race in vintage races and stuff there. I'd struck me that you didn't have to touch a thing. We very little because that places places and Change Nineteen fifty seven and it's thrilling because the real characters were making the movie about race there and they haven't touched a thing it is it is and what I love about it is it hasn't been turned into some Not Sean on kind of life right like the style. GIC thing rice just is what it was. 'cause it's not it's not been turned into some kind of touristy things no Marilyn Monroe Mannequin that grass. You shop or anything I it's it's just the place like it's been always. I know I was thrilled watching it. And I were talking Christian about out The car this bumped me and that bumped me the only thing the sensitive the entire film that bumped me is. There's a couple Bush shots where you're going the wrong way on spray. Yes yes was that in the later sequence when they're testing the car because that's we did intentionally. We like going the wrong direction but as like you're the only person in this theater that knows shop the racist going there now. I know there's a later sequence where they're testing other testing thing the GT forty when they ended up tying the yarn to it that we did shoot. I think we shot at going the wrong way and a couple of places the Trying to freshen up the shots figure figure when you were testing on the track you can drive any which way you want. Yeah it's it's such an amazing film and it's I was worried that I was going to love it But that America wasn't gonNA love it because they don't like cars than ever to worry of mine too. I'm glad this story. The story of can in his son in what happened can and this sort of tragedy Ken Miles after. I made my doc when I thought I was just making a doc about sort of Ferrari Murari versus Ford like the film and I realized Oak. Ken Miles this is the human story in this in this whole big. The big macro ness of the whole thing the microbes really can his son his wife and his tragedy. We'll also he was such a wonderful character actor. Everyone remembers him with such clarity and And the way his friendship intersected with the way he him in Shelby's friendship was so mutually beneficial. How they each needed each other in a way? Ken to be Carol's kind kind of driver his almost projection of himself behind the wheel and that can would never get a chance to drive. It wasn't for Carol because Ken was a handful. You know and that that to me was so interesting and then a lot of the relationships were interesting. I found Henry Ford the second really interesting. I mean the idea of being a legacy running this company. Roofer makes kind of slightly boring cars affordable cars for the working man. And then you have a guy like Enzo. WHO's much more of a maverick? No legacy created this company who makes unaffordable cars rumbles. No Man and and each man has something in on the corporate case of the corporate side. They each ban has something the other other wants. Ford wants to be cool for wants to be solvent awry you know and the And it's in so many ways the characters it extrapolates out of racing and becomes about all the decisions we make in life and the choices we can make about the tripe type of person we want to be the way we pursue our goals that that either bankrupt. US or enriches but we go. How did I get on this track making too in this boring shit and the and the all and the efforts to kind of change your track even Ford? I very moved by Henry Ford. He's trying to change it up. You know he's trying to and and one great scene where you know Matt's character. Shelby takes Henry for the second out for a drive. I always find it very moving because you suddenly realize this imperious kind of Intimidating executive is also really living in a bubble and it's kind of sad and never gets to taste on the ground level. What it is they do that act there has a tracy lattes yeah yeah he was fantastic? He's a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright as well but he's really actor yeah he's and The Guy Played Remington. Ray McKinnon. I thought was awesome as well. And it's He was in deadwood he. We created a great series for years. He's he's a great. He also is a great writer to Greeley Interesting Group of people. We gathered together and the way it was shot. Let's let's just magnificent. It looked so good. Great DP Fed Papa. MICO and we've worked together in five movies and We you know and and I've done a lot of commercials in my life and I didn't want the movie to look like a car commercial but I did want to be beautiful like A. There's a I wanted you to feel it as real like sometimes. Sometimes when you're shooting car commercials everything gets so creamy and beautiful. That every car looks obviously no one wants to see their car dirty right here. Part tired of the sexiness is the dirt. is the dust is the the sense That they're being used one of the interesting factoid. I know from other life making making other kinds of movies and also doing this. As you know a lot of the characters I met especially the willow spring southern California racing characters they knew George Lucas because he was a hot water and he would have out He would sleep on a lot of their couches and was at willow springs and all these places and and for those star wars fans part of the reason that all although spaceships even in the very first star Wars Malim Falcon. The X. Wing's look so soiled right house of George Lucas his experiences and drag racing and in racing and that that all that exhaust staining and all that stuff was was his influence of trying to kind of carry something like. Why is everything perfectly clean in outer? Space Brierley is unattractive the American graffiti great movie and Yeah Ryan Harrison Ford plays a drag racer with A. I'm fifty five. I think he's driving a Bell L. Landscape movie. If you haven't seen it a great soundtrack is it's an impossible to afford soundtrack now. So they're telling me to bring it home so so I'll heap.

"We'll see but. Okay. So this weekend was the last. I think it was the last SNL of the season. Okay. And Matt Damon Matt Damon and Miley Cyrus was the musical guest. She did not show up in any skits. And actually, I thought it was one of the stronger episodes of SNL we've had all season Donny posted. There was one good sketch were people were imitating different people were trying to try out for the Oscars and Matt Damon curly-haired McConnell. Hey, oh, how funny. It was a really good skit. Every just about everyone in the cast. The only thing that Pete Davidson did after his basically, it seemed like a suicide note. Saturday. He did introduce Miley Cyrus for the second musical number. So, but he wasn't in any skits or anything like that. So he he seems to be okay. And I guess all of his friends just he just might need to stay off Instagram and Twitter, just social media. Just screw it. Aneta volatile six months to meeting. Someone falling. Bipolar disorder, which is a very real thing. So. And then I also thought the skit where Matt Damon incessantly strongly does not get her credit on that show where they were kind of a lounge singer hysteria. That was very that was very good. And then Chris Miley everything. So the first song she does is nothing breaks like a hurt. Her new song, which we think is loosely sounds like Joe lean little bit. But the funniest thing is you tell me in you making look at it when I get in into your leg. Julia look at this. And you said Casey just kept wanting Miley to lift up her arms lift up, and I'm like, what are you talking about? Yeah. So we played the video of my Lee singing, and you can and she's wearing track bedazzled like a sparkling. Yeah. That's. Zipped, and she's got she's just ripped in her breasts. It doesn't look like there's tape to hold the jacket had to have been. Because every time we go lift your. He wanted to this. I know, but I. Instagram. I would and then she had high boots on her. So. She's gorgeous. She's gonna get a five-time jacket 'cause they love having her on. She brings it. Remember when she did wrecking ball out. Yeah. Good. So then. Pete. At the end of the show. Pete Davidson introduces Miley Cyrus Cyrus, and Mark Ronson, and Sean Ono Lennon who I was just crushing on in his top hat and his beard glasses. But he didn't introduce him.

"matt damon" Discussed on Waking Up with Sam Harris
"The guardians of the galaxy who got immediately fired and had his movie torpedoed for history of bad tweets. I think it's right to think that a lot of these powerful people are reasonably worried that they don't have the power. They think they have. They can't take the risks. Frankly, the reason why. I can have this conversation with you is there's no one who can fire me. I can explore this with you and make mistakes and part of what is novel about this conversation is showing whatever mistakes, I make to the audience and just processing in real time with you. And that's the experiment. I'm happy to run here. But I couldn't do it on CNN with you. And there's something that worries people about that. And it's not just guys with power who are worried many women journalists whose names, you know, who you write about in your book people like Caitlin Flanagan, Katie ROY fee. And I don't think you mentioned kluber linski in your book, but McClair Berlin skate they've taken this other point in defense of the Matt Damon's of the world because they see kind of frenzy or witch-hunt or moral panic, or at least imprecision here in how we target people. And even even appoint in your book where you acknowledged this where you say. And I'm going to quote, you, quote, the rage that some of us were feeling didn't necessarily correspond to the severity of the trespass. Lots of us were as incensed about the guy who looked down our shirt at a company retreat as we were about Weinstein. Even if we could acknowledge that there was something fundamentally nuts about that. So yes, you you're on it and say what I right after that. Explain why there's I mean, that's you're right. This is what I mean. By the way, when I say that those of us I was writing that sentence appeared in a piece that I wrote in real time in the fall of twenty seventeen and that's what I mean when I say that some of the flattening that's been done is behaving as if we were just out there wielding these clubs in which we were not, you know, acknowledging distinctions I write about that. And make that point precisely because I go on to make the point that what I was getting to in what I would ride in a letter later piece. I believe in response to Masha Gessen's piece, but I was working through there. I say we know that there's something fundamentally era. Rational of the about the way that these giant trespasses are making us as as angry as some of the minor stuff. But what I go on to say is in part. That's because it's not just about the sexual violence. It's about getting this view of our value are diminished value in the world is about sexism. I think the end of that paragraph is like that's because what we were identifying was not simply a pattern of sexual harm you rather sexism systemic subjugation, systemic gender inequity. And and that's why. And I mean, that's part of the argument that I go on to make just to be clear that was a that was a sentence that I wrote it in the same period that people were saying that people like me, we're just making these broad characterizations in which everything was the same. You acknowledge that it was fundamentally nuts, right? Or that? There was something fundamentally nuts about that something fundamentally nuts. And then I go on to write about why why we got there. And I wanna go back to what you said about Matt Damon ridge. Asking something. Are you risking something? And talking to me, what are you risking that? I'm going to that. I'm gonna. Argue back that I'm going to say, I think you're wrong or that. I'm going to say, oh, no, no, no, no. It's the audience Damon risking he was risking that. People would disagree with him. What is Katie ROY risking that people? And as I did disagreed with her vociferiously that is very different from how it's often cast, which is you know, as the victims of this mob. Katie ROY forgot I believe it was a covered cover story in Harper's. And Matt Damon as we have covered already. He's just fine. He no. But there are people who just take someone like, okay? A not perfectly analogous example. But take Roseanne Barr rice. Oh Roseanne Barr. Tweet something stupid people can argue about how racist it was..

"Is a quite frankly at this point someone who retired argument but if you're going to come down on matt damon for trying to bury the story well then what about all of the women in hollywood who knew exactly what harvey weinstein was doing but they didn't come forward i mean is that not a fair question to ask now i will admit to you and it will submit to you that there is a difference between trying to bury a story of these allegations against weinstein from the that's the accusation against matt damon versus not coming forward if you're a victim of harvey weinstein or if you know what to harvey weinstein it has been doing i do understand that there there is a difference between those two but i think that the point is still the same so for all these women and all these folks to scream oh matt damon matt damon will there missing what i would say is the bigger point which is there are similarities between damon trying to bury the story of harvey weinstein and women not coming forward with their own personal stories and by the way damon denies trying to bury the story but you have all these women now and i've i've lost count i'm is forty fifty whatever it is that these women that are accusing harvey weinstein well they're not denying the you know harvey weinstein did this to them and so i think it is a fair question to ask what we're coming forward now but why didn't you come forward ten years ago but honestly i think that in here's the the problem that we have with this whole conversation is the fact that all sides have legitimate points and so for me as a guy who comments on this stuff every single day i try to be fair and i do try and provide all sides see there is a point to be made that if a woman was sexually harassed or sexually assaulted fifteen years ago by harvey weinstein or he made some sort of a sexual demand on this woman in order to further her career and she does whatever godforsaken thing it is that they the woman wants him to do the other that he wants the woman to do well they didn't come forward for ten fifteen years because they were worried about their career i do understand that in while i i would say that that is a valid point.
