Female Comedians Unite
"Hollywood's top comedy. Actresses are uniting in saying they are sick of being put in a box. Tiffany Haddish told the Hollywood reporter that she had to turn down multiple projects as a block comedic actress. She says she gets roles that are overtly sexual or roles that had her play a mom whose child gets hurt in some way. Way And she's fighting for justice. She mentioned this during a virtual actress roundtable. That also included Jamila Djamil Jamila said she's always given scripts to play a character who has too much sex. Robin said the writing is often so bad for comedy actresses. She's resorted to writing her own. Do you think that men and comedic roles feel the same way, or is this? Just a one sided argument. No I think you've you asked Matthew mcconaughey Hey why his career went away did it's because those were kind of the only roles that men had to get as well men who were players, men who still had roommates in their forties men? who were Douche bags? That never got out of Frat life. I think that's comedy is all about is lagging at at those things in life, but I think men do get them as well. Okay, I I was conflicted about this I I'm not a comedic actress and I actually thought the opposite I thought that women who were put in comedic roles were usually sort of the best friend role or the woman. That's like maybe made to look as unattractive. Unattractive as possible to be as funny as possible, so I didn't realize that women who were being put in comedic roles. We're supposed to be overtly sexy or things of that nature so to hear this actually quite surprised by it because I just didn't view it that way. Yeah, I think there's typecasting when it comes to a lot of actors whether it's you were maybe a nerdy role in one movie. Then a lot of people see you as oh. That's going to be the quintessential nerd. If we look at Michael Sarah or Christmas, plus like they are also typecast in their own way, so yeah, I feel like it falls on both sides, but do we feel like right Impro-? No I wouldn't ask for it to improve what I would do. is either a write my own scripts and come up and find content that is right for me as an actor or an actress or I would just pass those things up because what happens is if you pass it up. Another actress gets the job, so let's not have those roles diminish. Let's see those roles go away. Just pass them to another actress. Who's just starting her career? Everyone's not in the position, obviously to pass roles and I think you do have to maybe do roles in the beginning of your career, like for example, even just with my own career right I started on a reality show. That wasn't my end goal but I did that to get to where I was now. There was obviously no guarantee in that out, but luckily it has women who wannabe actresses, whether it's serious actresses or comedic actress, or both start their career out and have different intentions are willing to do different things than maybe they get. Get a little bit more famous, or they get a little bit more successful, but I think what you said. Aaron was very valid and I don't know if it's a comedic actress. Issue I think shirt. People just get typecast in general I think the bigger conversation I feel like when you're casting one role, you do it sell well. People tend to want you for different kinds of roles that are similar to that. Yes, yeah, exactly and like what you were saying just in like you know if you don't want those roles, let's not eliminate them. On them, and these women who are part of this roundtable seem like they're fortunate enough to be able to pass on those roles that they don't WanNa, take on I will play the funny gay friend. Anytime Billy. Porter is not

B. I don't know how you could imagine that but with a bunch of kids and trying to work and now you find out the kids are going back to school until maybe may fifteenth I mean I don't this is what I'm very happy to be single and unmarried but I don't know how people do it the most dot not making money you got a million kids you're trying to work everyone making new recipes and it is it's a complete cluster the most offensive thing I've heard through all of this was Gayle king lamenting it's really hard to do this while you're single because it's just so lonely and I might come some some of this scale it's just only in your massive Bel Air mansion so narrowly up there depends how the Upper East Side shut up so thank you now I mean if I hear one more celebrities sing a song from their pool I'm gonna shoot somebody asks where I have more Matthew McConaughey in the woods is Bobby bandito in less Kylie Jenner's legs pool side I I know that's a weird thing this ma'am but that's the reality that is the reality I mean honestly and you see it out here you would not believe the conversations you overhear when you have to wait I don't know an hour to get into trader Joe's with a bunch of like hipster Silver Lake you this is I mean it's just unbelievable engine we deliver any wind up over thirty dollars a barrel that is a direct quote from somebody finally it's awfully trader Joe's okay I need a video I don't think they're not even you know producing series right now but we're all looking for the next tiger King makes me at trader Joe's lines throughout California I'd watched an episode of that I'm sites outside by helping the homeless encampment I know how that turns out you with every one of them socks that would for me I speaking to spend you got a new book out it's called mai ham unanswered questions about the Tsarnaev brothers the U. S. government and the Boston Marathon bombing obviously we all know April fifteenth two thousand and thirteen this happened your first book on this came out in twenty seventeen called maximum harm here's my question for you on the book you've gone Hollywood between twenty seventeen and now you've been wildly successful you've got a series on TV that's been picked up again you got another series in production why is this one stick in your Craw so much that even though you had so much success you still got to keep working on this thing we don't funny I tell the story all the time about how the family things you're rich when you put out a book and like the Christmas list gets bigger but I don't next them harm for five thousand dollars and re publish it for one reason and one reason only it's because I think we deserve the answers and somebody who is standing at ground zero you know I was in please bureau chief for nine eleven I had a front page that day on the New York Daily News it was burning all of lower Manhattan it's a day I will never forget I lost a lot of friends among the three hundred and forty three firefighters and twenty three and might be detox and thirty seven Port Authority police officers in the in the hundreds more that have died of the droga illness which nobody ever talks about even as we talk about clone of ours you know I think that we are deserving of answers to this day he be there people tend to give all the still haven't been brought to justice there are still how would classified records about the Saudi connection to nine eleven and I feel like we keep I actually read the nine eleven commission report and if anyone else reddit or anybody in Congress read it or any of our lawmakers took it seriously the marathon bombing whenever it happens and I think that we are deserving of the real answer is there are some very glaring questions that you and I talked about before number one the government said in court records they said during the night trial that they don't believe the brothers built the bombs they don't have any physical evidence linking them to the building of the bombs which raises the immediate question then who the hell did it and why are we looking for that person and then you turn to Topsfield Massachusetts fifty five days after the Boston Marathon bombing and you find out about this wacky doodle named Daniel Morley who told his mother he had something he had to answer to god for his mother told the top feel PD that he was friends with him on the night of October when the police bomb squad Topsfield PD they do a great job securing the scene they got permission to search the home all the time the FBI showed up I know where nobody who called the feed which is a quote that one status as one other that night and next thing you know despite the fact that nearly every component to the pressure cooker bomb that was detonated seven years ago was found in the kids back from the FBI thinks and take over the case and where do anymore we now well the last time I saw that cute he was driving for the ride when his original charge was beating up his mother and her elderly computing how does that make sense have your guy that had all of that stuff and it's it's never prosecuted have you ever talked to him I tried to get Bruce gellerman his good friend of mine W. B. O. R. talk about unlikely alliances but it we found out where he was living in move in Massachusetts and we went there and he literally had one of the ride vehicles that we pay for a factor and he landed on a slow speed chase R. N. he wouldn't get out of the card wouldn't talk to us you know I went to the hospital it's in the box to see more I want to talk to a hospital where he was being assessed the two years because you know anybody who had any experience with the amount of mental illness and trying to get help for that two years in a mental institution no one can tell to pay for that again I'm Ali but I went in there and I asked him to have faith in the the big gambling you know how good a guy as a Guinea did you build the bombs anytime in smirked at me and turn around walk away let me here we need to build the bomb would depend upon what he's talking about the alarm he was not at all but you know how this goes it's critics of yours make fear rolling their rising they're going all there goes makes me again often some crazy conspiracy theory and make it much more out of it that is already there is this just conspiracy theory talk well I think you'll see you know my friend Jim Sullivan over the market just in the story and he asked me that same question there's not one thing and that book VV that's not annotated this is all court records this is all interview notes if the inspector general Horowitz report is the mass media report it is you know shouldn't through both of his child every single solitary day every single day my my routine is to wake up look at pacer if you have any new filings in his case we both know that this case is so expensive that they steal the cost that we have already paid for the first two trials and now the field the costs of his appeal I mean this is become a boondoggle and I think the world deserving of the answers I challenge anyone they can treat me right now any question that they have about the book and I will point you can go to my Facebook page you know I will point to the evidence I have the support any questions that you have and DB you know I have pictures of every single piece of evidence that was taken out again I'm always house I have him on the night of a file which you know Magnus are provided to people while ago talking about this inexplicable state department document that has camel and when he was sixteen years old come into the country and I had another completely different dude on the same identical document where the same identical shirts and the state department either the scanning failure but declined to explain how that giving failure might have happened there's just a lot of money of the questions that I think we deserving of those dancers the most important question I think is what you know you have an FBI agent who interviewed him on but I've been a whole family in twenty eleven after the Russians warned us that he was becoming radicalized you're telling me that that the I. agent just as a reporter you're telling me that the pension from out of town when in your heart you don't recognize the guy you really buy that the new book is called may have Michelle makes the our good friend is the author of if you like maximum arm you're gonna like may I'm one of the exits it Michelle is I looked you've never been

Internet memes are the new coronavirus coping mechanism
"I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with US special guest abroarall hedy bright. You've got this fantastic story. Which initially we wrote off as a fluff piece because it's Internet memes and means you're so disposable but there's actually like a series star behind such a fascinating story behind it kind of breaks out. What exactly where. Exactly how our Internet memes Being designed or created as a reaction to what's going on with crowbars absolutely you're right. It's it's true that you can kinda push off these things that we see on instagram and twitter ads. Just these these things that people joke about but it turns out that means can be a very healthy way to cope with stress and anxiety. And there's a lot of stress and anxiety right now. Given the krona virus pandemic psychologists actually saved that means our healthy way to cope with anxiety because humor is something that we have used as humans to cope for ever so this is something that people did during the world. War is something people did during the civil war. They found ways to incorporate humor into magazines and posters and journal entries and this is how we process things and make light of them And so it means are kind of the modern day way that we do that we take a very serious situation like quarantine and then we find ways to make jokes about that like. I'M GONNA put on my living room pajamas as opposed to like my bedroom pajamas. Like all the ways that we find You know the ways that we find humor in kind of the serious reality of the world right now so this is actually something. That is very help healthy for a lot of people to use a time like this. Yeah I love Sort of the the quick kind of walk back through history of how humorous played a role right. And it's fascinating to me that you know that the civil war civil war era was largely considered the age of practical jokes article. Joking which you know when you're watching those. Ken Burns documentary like I don't it. It's weird to Kinda like juxtapose. How the Civil. War's been presented with the fact that people were playing practical jokes on each other. Which boggles my mind. But you're it's a great point. We've we've long used humor as a way to deal with extraordinary circumstances and this is a particularly extraordinary circumstance absolutely and this is something that I spoke with Dr who runs this me McCowan. And he was saying that you know sometimes a laugh is the only bit of sanity that you have in your day because when you don't have that ability to kind of diffuse that tension and a few that anxiety like what else do we can't somebody. One of the psychologists I spoke with Dr Andrew's was saying that this isn't a scenario where we can kind of band together and be like okay. You know. We're all facing this crisis together. Let's go and volunteer drives at helped people. We can't even come together. Well if we have to stand six feet apart from each other we have to social distance we have to be essentially isolation from one another and the only way we can really reach other is through the Internet and so when we are communicating through the Internet. One of the best ways we can make light of a situation and one of the best ways that we can connect with. People is with humor because when you relate with somebody when you can share a joke with somebody that's really what creates those connections and those connections are so critical right now at a time when people really crave social interaction. Exactly this is an audio podcast right now just given our limitations but as wondering if you could run through some of the more memorable means that you ran into and of course reporting and I know this isn't a visual medium but You can talk to your best. Describe the the memes that the great. Yeah absolutely there's wine with Matthew mcconaughey where he's like smoking a cigarette and he's really intense looking at phone and then the caption says me reading about current virus thirty seconds after. I swore I wouldn't read about corona virus anymore and it just really captures like like. Why am I doing this? Why can I not put down my phone? Why can I not step away? You pledge that you're not going to do it and then you do it again There's a lot of good distracted boyfriend means where it's like. Yeah yeah look over. And it's like oh two weeks according t and you're looking over and it looks so good and then like work is in the background trying to juggle. Like hey headway how do I do this There's there's one that was kind of a little bit on the on the darker side. It was a picture of a baby. And you know how like sometimes people will have a sign that says like my first Easter. My first Christmas it said my first pandemic and I was like wow. That's funny. It's extremely dark. Extremely funny exactly are fascinating but even even dark humor psychologists. I spoke with April. Former saying they'd even dark. Humor can be a healthy way to to cope with these things. And so you laugh and you feel like slightly like. Oh my God. This is awful. But then you're like you know like it's the reality. We have to make some
Explaining Occam's Razor
"Today we're going to discuss a problem solving principle that many of you probably heard of and we've we've definitely referenced on the show before and that is autumn's razor that's right. It's it's one of the classics one of the hits of like the skeptical toolkit and I think it's a really one to get into because it's something that is widely known but in different ways and often To whatever extent it actually does have value. It often gets deployed in ways that do not actually make use of its value right like like an actual razor blade. It may be misused from time to time. Yes now. What one specific place that. I know we've talked about it before. Is that is in the context of Carl? Sagan's recommendations for the the tools of skeptical thinking he these out and one of them is autumn's razor. He writes all comes razor this convenient rule of thumb urges us when faced with two hypotheses that explain the data equally well to choose the simpler. Okay now why did we end up talking about this today? We we were in the studio the other day Discussing upcoming episodes. And you said that. Seth had mentioned this our producer Seth Yeah. I was in here and set a nickel Johnson was working on. A crossword puzzle was at the New York. Times he tells us it was the New York Times And he he asked me how to spell. Autumn is in razor and I took a guess at it and I can't I can't remember. I was correct. I was probably wrong but also probably hit one of the multiple acceptable spell things for razor But anyway we started talking about it and I was like. Oh Yeah we we could do that as an episode and so here we are. I'm very glad we picked this because I think one of my personal favorite genres of of critical thinking is is being skeptical about the tools of skepticism. You know is sometimes people who identify skeptics can ca- can I get a little cocky. You know they get a little too sure of themselves about what the reasoning tools they use and it's worth putting those tools to the test. Giving them a closer look. Yeah absolutely now I have to say I definitely remember. The first time I encountered the concept of outcomes raise or at least the first time I encountered it and it on some level stuck with me and that was when viewed the Nineteen ninety-seven film adaptation of Carl Sagan's novel contact the movie. I can't watch without crying. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah well. Why does it make you cry? Oh God there's no point especially the first part where you know it. Zooms out from the earth and you're hearing the radio signals go back in time and then and then it shows the young. L. E. Airway experimenting with the Ham Radio and her dad's helping her and get so emotional. Yeah Yeah it's it's been a very long I. I haven't seen it since initially came out and in fact the main thing I remember from it is seen in which jodie foster's character. Eleanor Airway has having this conversation with Matthew mcconaughey as character. Who How old was Matthew mcconaughey at this point? I don't even know how old he is. Now is this ageless demon but anyway. Here's this character He's scared Palmer. Joss in the scene in question foster's character brings up autumn's razor in a discussion on the nature of God she. She says well which is ultimately the simpler hypothesis that an all powerful God exists or the human beings made got up in order to feel better about things and then this ultimately comes back around is kind of flipped on her later on film regarding her characters encounter with an extraterrestrial intelligence right. Is it more likely that she really had the experience? She thinks she had with With all these aliens or that. She like hallucinated. Something that would give her emotional closure. Yeah and so. Yeah I think I was in high school at the time so it was. It was interesting concept especially in the context of of atheism verses of faith in a creator deity inserted to suddenly have this tool from the chest. Skeptical thinking just thrown up on the table and you and seemingly used by both sides. Well Yeah I think this is funny. This is a great example because it highlights some of the most common features of all comes razor as it is actually used to like. It's often invoked in a kind of fuzzy way without an objective measure Just kind of invoked to back up your intuitions about the probability of something right but another thing is that this example shows how. It's not always easy to find a way to compare the simplicity of two different propositions like is the existence of God a simple hypothesis or a complicated one that I think that really depends on kind of how you feel about it like like what kind of objective measure can you come up with to evaluate that question right. It's GonNa depend so much on your like your background your culture what you grew up with. And you know how you how you've come to view the possibility of Of God's existence. Is it just kind of the bedrock of your your worldview or is it this thing from the outside that you are contemplating and also how do you view it at like the coherence of the idea? Do you view it as something. That's like That's full of all these little kind of ad hoc accommodations or something that is a holistic coherent Sort of like fact about nature. Yeah you know I it's I I think this is a perfect example. That shows like win. People used the idea volumes razor in a way that is not helpful and doesn't really doesn't really get you any closer to figuring out what's true now if you're if you're still questioning what the concept really means. Don't worry we will get to some. I think some very understandable examples of how it can be a used properly and used improperly. But let's go ahead and just start about the concept itself the the word autumn You know where this comes from. We'll get to the origins of autumn's razor so Oxfam's razor is also known as the principle of parsimony and parsimony means a tendency towards cheapness or frugality. So I like that. It's like the principle of parsimony is like you. You want to be cheap with your with your logic right yeah. I don't need more than two steps of logic between me and the solution. Don't give me one with four or five. And it was named after the Medieval English philosopher William of autumn. Of course William of Arkham So he he lived in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries from twelve eighty five to either thirteen seven or thirteen forty nine. I've seen different death dates given forum. I've seen different birthdates as well. Eighty seven twelve. Eighty eight looking at That's interesting so he was a prolific scholar. Franciscan friar we'll get more into his ideas in a minute. I you know one thing I've always wondered is where the heck is awesome. I've never heard of that. Well yeah because the word sound has kind of like a remoteness to it. It sounds alien in some ways. Autumn is very much a real place. It is a rural village. In Surrey England. You can look it up online. You can find that the website for the church in Oxfam for example and this area has been occupied since ancient times. It's about a day's ride south west of London and it was the birthplace of the individual who'd come to be known as William Volume now beyond that beyond the fact that he was born here. We don't know a lot about William's life We don't know what his social or family background was or if his native language was French or Middle English. As Paul Vincent Spadea explains in the Cambridge companion to Arkham he was likely given over to the Franciscan order as a young boy. Before the age of fourteen and here Latin would have quickly become his language of not only writing but also just conversation Grey Friars Convent in. London was likely his home convent but later he traveled he visited Avalon he visited Italy and he lived the last two decades of his life in Germany. Now philosophically William was a Nominal List and spayed writes that the two main themes of this for William were the rejection of universals and ontological reduction in these two teams are are not necessarily interconnected like you can you. Could you could believe in one but not the other and vice versa but basically like let's get into what these mate so the first rejection of universals is perhaps best considered and this is very brief and broad Certainly you can find so much written in instead on this topic but basically think of it as a rejection of the tonic idea of the realm of forms. So that idea that all chairs that we might make design and carve a symbol are an attempt to create the perfect chair which doesn't reside in our world but only resides within this realm of forms. So all chairs that we create our like an aspiration for the ideal chair another way. I've thought about it at least as I understood it was. The nominalism is kind of the idea that there is no such thing as a chair. There's only this chair and that chair in this chair over here. There is no chair right like this. This is the kind of the situation gets too. When you you get into the genre classifications of say albums artists or movies. You care a great deal about and someone tries to limit it to a classification and say oh well that's classic rock where that's alternative rock near like. No no no no no. Don't don't try and fit there is there. Is these categories. Do not apply. There is there is only you know whatever. Your band of choice happens to be. There is only tool. There is only primis or whatever right there yeah there. There is only things not category right. Now let's move onto the second theme here. Ontological reduction this is as Britannica defines it quote the metaphysical doctrine that entities of a certain kind are in reality collections or combinations of entities of simpler or more basic kind. I think your classic example here is molecules atoms. Yeah so another example. Here's while our aristotle defined ten categories of objects that might be apprehended by a human mind. These would have been translations vary on on how you wanted to find these but substance quantity quality relative place time attitude condition action and affection. William cut these down to two substance and quality. He's really getting in there. That's the razor. That's what a razor Dutt. Cia slices away. It cuts off the fat and gets down to the meat. Spayed writes quote. Although these two strands of thinking are independent. They are nevertheless often viewed as joint effects of a more fundamental. Concern the principle of parsimony known as Oxfam's razor okay. So we're getting to the razor. Yeah so William. Devoted a lot of energy to arguing against What spade calls the bloated onto logical in inventories of his contemporaries and became well known to his peers for this as such either towards the end of his life or shortly after his death a kind of greatest hits album came out on his thoughts and ideas titled On the Principles of Theology? Now it wasn't actually by William of Arkham but it featured his doctrine as well as verbatim quotes there is no ascribed author either so later generations would often just attribute it to him as well as the notion of outcomes razor however the specific phrase was apparently never actually used by him. He never said autumn in the house. I'M GONNA get the razor out and started carving on some some some some some ideas
Oscar Picks of Wesley Morris from The New York Times
"Wesley Morris is here. Sometimes we fly him out. And we just put you on a whole bunch of podcasts. And we just wind you up and you go yeah Ping Pong Pinball pinball Wesley Yeah Oscars this this weekend yes I can never get through Oscars week without talking to you for at least ten minutes on what's going on. I'm not sure what happened to the Oscars because we have all these prohibitive favorites. There's no drama at all. Everyone thinks nineteen seventeen gonNA win. Isn't that wild. Everyone thinks Phoenix is GonNa win for the joker. Okay yeah that Renee Zellweger is GonNa win for Judy. which I five saying? No no no it made money Brad Pitt for once upon a time And then Laura dern for marriage story yes and those are Kinda done y- everyone the the. They're like huge huge favorites. It doesn't even make sense to bet on them. They're such huge favorites. You'd be like betting on. I don't know the the though Oklahoma City Thunder to beat some division. Three Kinda odd you the only one. That's kind of even best director. Sam Mendes as twenty five favorite. That's what is happening. Is it just. The Internet has made this that the consensus the census of thought now nobody goes against the grain and they just kind of follow the pack. What's happening here? I don't know I think I really feel like increasingly. There are just enough people. I don't know how voters individually or feeling about not pressure to pick a certain person person but the like doing the work to really choose the thing you love the most because every year you read those blind items that variety are Hollywood reporter daily beast. I do yeah And you read these Oscar voters say things and they all have. They all seem to have individual taste rate to hear these. I voters justify why they're voting. They're voting for you. You would think anything could win but that never happens will rarely happens right so I also also believe that in this particular year. I think there's a lot of politics going on like like movie. Industry politics rang. Explain plan so I don't think that people. I think there's a number of things happening. I think people don't like parasite that much. I think they see it. I think that was that was okay. I don't know how they could think that it actually got. It's like Robert Covington right now the NBA trade deadline. It's gotten hyped up too much now. People going wait a secondly. I think it's great it's awesome you're going to see it and you you end up going and you're like yeah it's good but you're not like Oh my God you're right I'm blown away. Yeah Yeah I can't speak but some people are leaving matt a Lake Nona. Nope they're leaving. They're probably just watching it at home but like they're they're watching this movie and they're just Kinda like well okay. I and I'm rich people poor people and I think that I mean I really think that they think it's that simple and I also think good. I really liked it. I didn't think it was like the best picture picture the year I why do but you do really. I was the case in a minute. I think it's just okay. The very simple thing is it takes a story. It takes an idea that I can't believe that in a hundred and you know twenty years of movies. Nobody's ever done before nobody's ever fought to turn the class. Divide into into a game in this particular way. Yeah and by the time they get to the sect by the time the father other by the time the father gets the job. So the third the third introduction of the the glomming onto this family. I'm just I was just laughing. I was is laughing with happiness at the brilliant to this idea. He's such a great of these nine movies and most like almost all of them are perfectly made. I would say that's the one that surprised me the most in terms of how tight and smart and and surprising it was the one thing I don't like goodbye it is the ending but in talking to people about who also sort of ending is anticlimactic but it also needs to be there none. Nobody could come up with a better trending. So this is the endings. Movie needs to have this elegiac sort of tragic fantasy ending. I liked once upon a time. The most I mean and as you know I also love them. We did a podcast about that on this podcast. Back in August we wait. Let's go back though we dated Rewatch ables. That's coming this week about about it already. Yeah well we do one Oscar movie every year O- of the nine area to get out on time. That seems fair. Yeah UH-HUH I think forward and for our versus Ferrari of those nine movies. That in little women I think are the most those are going to prove to be the most re watchable bowl of those. I'm so glad you said that. I feel like those have become the underrated. I'm not sure what happened. In each case moves. I thought little women was excellent. Women Soak so good the crazy thing about this year. Is there a two stores. I just wrote a story about this for the paper and the the the maddening thing about these nine movies please. And I'll get back to the into back to what people are saying about who they are. Why nine hundred seventeen is going to win for political reasons Movie movie industry political reasons. But I just read a piece about like how. This is the first year since they expanded the field ten. Move to up to ten movies that I have liked every single one of these movies more or less except for one and I don't like joker either. Yeah I don't like never really really align this year on what we didn't like I like that I didn't. I don't like joker I didn't have fun. I thought his performance was awesome. But I've seen a lot of movies that whereas the performance was awesome. But I'd necessarily loved the movie right I don't even I don't even Joaquin. Phoenix is one of my four favourite male actors. And this does not I feel like this is the first time he is looking for a character as like we are watching him do work mark. The I think it's done before you start shooting in this movie Part of it is. He is playing a person who's changing but he's always playing people who were undergoing some sort of ecological little change wasn't he's so much more interesting in the master. Oh everything he was doing. If you're going to start there then I'm like why did you give just give Antonio Banderas the Oscar. I mean that's where you're GONNA start but I'm saying like I don't know why I took this movie for people to like. Here's his Oscar. Movie when he was so good the pastor I mean the thing that was more interesting performance interesting thing that we should talk about. Is that like he is one of those people were. He's just a person who is owed right like it's he's been he's a set of a woman quote suffered so long just give him just give it to him not that he's begging for it because because when he took this part I was like oh well you know he clearly. He clearly understands with businesses going and I would never accuse him ever of like being being interested in getting any prizes for the work. He's doing but I also feel like there is a sense that he's been nominated three other times. I think maybe maybe four do you remember how lost to the master who who when they're You're talking keep your point going on anyway. I feel like if I sat here and thought about it. I'd come my with but I'm not going to remember those thirteen Two thousand thirteen. So we have. Is that Matthew mcconaughey. Now it's not McConnell. Now he lost a Daniel Day. Lewis Link Oh well that's that's just bad luck for Joaquin Phoenix. I remember having issue with that at the time you should have. I mean just just as a matter of history you should rostker you blaspheme. He's fine. He's fine I thought Athletes Ship

Contact: The Movie That Changed Drew Hammond's Life
"The movies adapted from the science fiction novel by The scientist Carl Sagan and tells the story of L. E. We first meet her as a little girl with her dad watching the stars and fascinated by the idea of life on other your planet's we see her playing with the radio trying to make a connection with people from outside her hometown and that curiosity that she has a little girl will eventually guide her through her work. Could we talk to the moon. Wow Big enough radio. I don't see why not can we talk to Jupiter or or what's one after that. Don't tell me give you in Hula hoops Saturn. Could we talk to Saturday. dad could be talked to mom. I don't think even the biggest radio could reach that far. Yeah people on other planets. I I don't know sparks but I guess I'd say if it is just as it seems like an awful ways to space ellie grows up to be this amazing astronomer who works for this organization that is trying to find aliens on other planets and many people don't take her work seriously other scientists give her credit for her hard work and for her intelligence and her amazing determination in her projects but it's the kind of science that is often equated with faith the kind of science. You can't prove true what I'm I'm doing you promising scientists to be wasting your gifts on this nonsense consider what could potentially be the most important discovery the human race nonsense incense okay. There's four hundred to one. There is intelligent life out there but it's so far away you'll never contacted in your lifetime Carol Disisto. Oh there's nothing out there about noble gases and carbon compounds and you're wasting your time in the meantime. You won't be published. You won't be taken seriously and your career will be over or before. It's begun so my life. That's search is one that takes l. e. directly into the path of Palmer Joss this this kind of spiritual pastor seeker played by Matthew mcconaughey elliara mutually studying all the usual Nabulsi quasars pulsars stuff like that. What are you what are you writing. The Usual Nouns adverbs added to here and there I worked on a project called city search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Wow out there l. E. is played brilliantly by the one and only jodie foster. One of my heroes and the relationship between her and Palmer is so important because it is going to kind of demonstrate and play out for us that divide divide between science and faith science and religion and it becomes the guiding light for the movie. How can you be sure that something really exists when you can't prove it Orig- book. Would you like me to quote you. Ironically the thing that people are the most hungry for meaning is the one thing that science hasn't been able to give them yeah yeah come on. It's like you're saying that science killed God. What if what if science simply revealed that he never existed in the first place the character of Palmer Joss was important for me because he inhabited this religious spiritual seeker identity but he also really understood were Elliott as a scientist came from and that was really important for high school teacher Hammond. Although he related to Ellie you know he had never seen a scientist. I figure like her before someone who would ask these hard questions of everyone around her and even of herself and the work that she did and yet but really really comfortable with the idea of mystery and unanswered questions so I want to hear the story behind when you first saw contact and this is kind of a meditative exercise that we found really useful here on the podcasts which is free to close your eyes so I'm looking at you so I know you're doing close your eyes and then for ten seconds distinct about that first time you saw the movie and then I will look at the clock and I'll interrupt you so what memories came for you then it it was the it was the summer after high school high school graduation. I think it was yeah and and about two weeks before the movie came out my long-term term crush that had a you know I wanna say it was love but it was not for sure. It was just highschool crush but for four years I had you know wanting wanting to be with her. and then towards the end of highschool. She got engaged to her youth pastor well from her church was he he he was like a good seven years older than she is right. Yes right but you know. Jesus was cool with it so I guess it was all part of the plan anyway but so I was I was crushed and I remember like I went to the wedding and and I remember thinking like Oh. Oh you know if if I if I was more of a person of faith if I was going to be somebody that could go to church this would be this could be me love me and I I I was just I was depressed and I felt so alone and and then a couple of my friends like we went to the the movie just because it was a science fiction movie had aliens in it and if you if you go back and look at the trailer it does not know it does not sell thus you knew like Carl. Sagan's work had no idea the kind of dialogue that it just looks like a cool science independence day was going to be it's been fun a fun romp and we watch the movie and and win when it was done my friends I got up and started to walk away and they were like let's get them scream and I was just sitting there bawling and I could not I could not bring myself to leave the theater for like a good ten minutes because it was just such a yeah. It was just such a profound and deeply personal experience that I don't think I've ever had in a movie like that where I felt like this movie spoke to something that I could never even put into words and I didn't know how to talk about it with anybody. I didn't feel like it was okay to talk about and what that what that movie brought up for me what I'm saying. Oh yeah definitely it's one of the things that I love the most about movies and that experience when you see one in the theater is it's you're kind of hit with the impact of the film and then you're processing it. I mean days weeks years later for sure. I went back and saw the movie again in the theater. You know maybe within the next week and finally started to figure out like Oh. This is speaking to this disconnect that I felt for the last you know whatever the the time probably eight years of being a young kid who never had a relationship with church and and was surrounded by very spiritual and religious people and always feeling like an outsider because you know it's funny. I think I had a similar experience to you watching the movie as someone who grew up actually very religious my parents are pastor eventual Christian but he's also a man. He's like a botanist and he always man of science. Yeah I think watching this movie felt in a lot of ways like seeing a lot of his own or inner conflict a lot of the things that we grew up hearing about from him but it was also the best example that I had had seen at the time of my ideal version of faith

"matthew mcconaughey" Discussed on The Filmcast
"We say Matthew mcconaughey is s on a number of occasions in this movie, which his son, I guess program broken his son programs that and his father having a lot of Selker sex with this woman a lot of Hooker sex. Gigolo sex. I think is correct term to get is to for his dad to procure money, which he the just give his dad in the like, you just create money just make money. Yeah. You could just have his dad have a lot of money. But in the end, there's no rules God. If that world he pairs up his dad with giant Hoon Seuss character. But gentleman who's who's apparently bad luck because as he programs his dad to say, we stopped getting good fish after your wife died. Which is a pretty fucked up thing to say, right? Like just as a as a basic thing in real life. You wouldn't you wouldn't say that to a real person unless you were terrible human being. But this kid apparently has a positive memory of his that. There's no giant hunts who has no function in this movie other than to try to talk him out of killing the guy and the way that he tries to talk him out of doing this. As at one point he hires a gang of I dunno like Argentinians or something to break the hands of Jason Clark's character. So that he can't go fishing like in a video game. Video games. Apparently, there's like a gang of Argentinian mercenaries like on hand. Argentinian mercenary perk right on the y'all. Duty. They do this very violent way. Despite this being a game. We're like no one dies and yet his hands, look brutally broken. And if you're playing so first of all there's not even any concept of how this kid is playing the game. Like is the game is the game of simulation and his father has taunted and his sort of this. He's just watching it all in full. It's like the SIMS or something right? Let's playing it. Because if so there's literally no reason for any scene that doesn't involve Matthew, mcconaughey. Because right in the video game. You don't you don't cut away to character? I mean, I guess you do in cut scenes, but it doesn't make any sense. Also to go back to your Argentinian mercenary point like my favorite part of that scene is how that all happen will end Hathaway's. Character was apparently asleep like drag them out of bed brutally beat him. And she wakes up, and you know, there's blood everywhere. I love the he's a man of God and his whole plan to give them to stop murdering him is just. Injure him. Up this other guy real best? Right. So super weird it, and again, if if it had if there was an analog to it that like in the real world the stepfathers hand had been broken. And so he had to incorporate that into the like if had been any reason for anything. Well, Jeff, I think one of the things one of the weaknesses in the film. You're pointing to is one of the week, you you just don't have enough knowledge of the real world right is. For instance, this kid programs the Anne Hathaway character in the game to basically kind of be a gold digger. Right. Who is undesirable to Metheny? Right..

"And even about you had to see it to believe it. Let me tell you. What happens with this movie, man? I'll tell you what it'd be don't wanna hear just walkaway. But let me just do this anybody out there when I hear this Twiss anybody out there. What if you check the Chit chat, tell me not to do it. I won't I won't do it, man. Even says give it to me strike, tell us gene says hell, even the movie saying tell me serenity right over here. Tell me I'm excited tell us. Boy. Oh, it's the I don't know. 'cause when it when I do know where it could be a rental. That's so stupid, man. This stupid here. We here we go. And so in the middle of this Bill more mystery thriller stuff that's going on big star flashing back to this kid on a computer. And they I you think okay. That's the kid that 'cause they they talk about how and half the way being married to Jason Clark. How and Hathaway in Matthew, mcconaughey? They had a son, of course, when they divorced. She took the kid merit this dickhead right here. And so since he's beaten hurry shit. I'm beach a little too. My nerdy stepson. Yeah, he's computer. And every time we don't computer you see him either typing code are he's playing fishing game and fishing gaming, none. But a fucking beach in hand holding the poll the whole time now as we move it goes on Matthew mcconaughey stars hearing voices why he's in the middle of this murder mystery and. You start thinking. Oh shit. Okay. Now, this is he's got some telepathic link to his son. And it okay. Now, here's a straight up reveal right here. Turns out that it's not that he's got a telepathic link with his son tires out the fool is dead. And this whole island is a virtual reality world created this kid genius. If like a cross between a fishing game and Tron in been. It's been watching a video game. All this time.
