"With peter matt moss And basically he gives a he gives. I think he does a hamlet monologue and the acting coach is pushing him saying you know what. What was that choice. Why was why did you make that choice so well. He's basically saying. I never had the urge to kill myself So i don't know what that's like. So i did. Xyz he's like the the teacher is basically saying you have had it you know and there's this idea of creation that kind of hit home for me as a writer you don't have to have actually had it to explore the feeling you don't actually there's no feeling there's no there's nothing that has happened on this earth. That has not happened to you. That's what he's basically positing right whether how true that is. I'm not gonna debate. I just think there's something beautiful in the creative zone of that and giving permission to inhabit a space On you know personally Even something you haven't experienced there's something there that's what makes actors great i think and And certainly there's something there for all creative people to think about. Yeah i thought that was cool. Yeah that is cool and then the audition tape or the doors and all that. I know the way that he kind of went the extra mile to audition for all of these parts by creating his own basically many movies of him auditioning failed goodfellas fail and they're not just like him talking to camera like he creates a little movie so he fails. At getting the henry hill part goodfellas he fails of getting the matthew modine part for full metal jacket so radio to get some matthew modine gets them and then he sends it to become jim morrison and it clicks and they're like but otherwise he would not have gotten the part this is after he's already been in some some movie. Yeah so it's so interesting how you have to keep fighting. That's another thing. Yeah yeah and also the challenges of being a movie star stuck in the body of a guy who's fundamentally you know sensitive artists like he talks about being. I don't know if you've got to this part. But what it was like for him to be batman and challenging it was and the pressure to you know kind of be a big movie star when he was in parts that were coming his way and within that there is this conversation about you know how difficult he was and they address it but they don't really give it. I would've i would've felt better. Had there been a real honest reckoning with that kind of narrative about his past and had him like talk to camera and acknowledge. What's true about that or rebut. What's not true about that. Because i think that's that's kind of what you know because we're all walking around or anybody who knows anything about him. It's kind of walking around with a certain impression. They do deal with it. Robert downey junior kind of dismisses it they were in kiss kiss. Bang together That i felt like i wanted a little bit more. You know kind of like real. Like i'm at the i'm i'm i'm done with my that part of my career like here's how i reflect back on that and here's what i would have done differently. Or here's where. I was misunderstood because it isn't a documentary in which people are talking to cameron sharing their perspective of him. It's just archival footage and then following him around. He's doing whatever he's doing. And i think within that there is a sadness because this guy you know lost his voice in could no longer do the thing that he loves to do and now he's reduced to going to comecon and signing posters and he talks about how he had to make peace with that and find like gratitude and spending time with people who who are fans of his. And how there's beauty in that as opposed to looking at it like. Oh well this is the bottom of the barrel now that i have to do this. And that's uplifting and of itself but you see a guy who had so much more inside of him yet to be expressed that will never be expressed in that medium but it's compelled him to reinvent himself as a visual artist and now he paints and he's got the studio space and he's opened up to other artists and is berthed. This whole other kind of i mean he's eighty gonesse and now he's like right. Yeah yeah to like. Have to reckon with your ego in that regard. Well he gives interesting. So i don't know i thought it was beautiful like i. You know i i you do you know. It's not the definitive word on val kilmer. Because it is his perspective on his own life is should be. It should be consumed and enjoyed with that in mind Not as like. I is this. The real val kilmer. I mean this is the val kilmer that he wants us to see. Ray and i enjoyed it very much and i. I left that documentary deeply touched and kind of in love with the guy. But you could say the same thing michael jordan. Doc documentary series. It was it was made by someone else with the point of view. But it was obviously with michael jordan's tacit approval and there's nothing in there that jordan. Kobe bryant had documentaries. And i love. Kobe rest his soul but like his book. I think didn't reckon with everything you know. There's there's arguments for all of these kinds of yeah doesn't mean it's not worth watching because there is something there for you right. Yeah all right. Check it out cool. What else talk about The alpinist is coming out. September seventh i believe is the and then theaters. That's premier and. I think it's in theater shortly after that. It's the new red bull climbing documentary by one of the producers of the dawn wall. Which is was the tommy caldwell story of them climbing the while he and his partner And this one follows. Mark andre leclerc and basically the idea. He's a canadian that no one really had heard of twenty three year old and he is a free soloist but i also free solo high alpine ice climbing. So i think the movie starts with. I watched it's a beautiful movie The filmmakers peter mortimer and basically Starts with alex. honolulu voice. Saying there someone out there that you That you admire during the press around free solo. Because alex has blown up so huge and he cites marc andre. Leclerc someone to watch. And 'cause he's this guy no one's heard of doing stuff that like even alex is like wow and the footage is absolutely spectacular seeing him because he's using equipment but with sometimes with no ropes climbing waterfalls with no ropes with like just a blade in like a centimetre blade into ice and hanging off with one arm. And just how slow but also person you have to move to keep climbing up some of this The kind of third act revolves around his amazing tori agar. Climb which is the first person to solo up tori egger in In patagonia during winter and he uses ropes on that one And so you kind of see that happen. There's a failed attempt and he asked to come down in the middle of a blizzard during avalanche conditions. And then he tries to get up again and then you know if you look up mark andrei you realize he's no longer with us and it gets into that.

"How would you help me out of it. How help you out of it. A lot of context but i suppose look within and really trying to see things for what they are much circumstance. Old people of the made that i was. I was questioning. Whether i was good enough to go and speak to them are well but i'm older than you don't wanna go to site and that's the thing people want to hear what you have to sign a really good book. Recently team grove. Harvey's yea kobe's toby coaches well and he's books called relentless i'll put a link to it in china and he's got a new book that came out the actual next book about to raid looking forward to that one as well so relentless talks about the different types of personalities that within basketball teams and uses basketball as that but you can overlay that into medical philosophy which is really cool but one of the things that when you watch basketball never really been fan michael jordan. Yeah it's pretty cool caveat. It's pretty cool. I don't sit there in the middle of the night watching basketball in the united states. You know go to a game alexa sport. But when you so i listened to he's book a couple of times twice actually and then i found the michael jordan doc on netflix and i watched that as well and one of the things that he talks about. And we said it a couple of times in this podcast is about instinct following your instinct and one of the things that he says. He's don't think says that often when your down and out and your and the clock is against you the school boards against you. Don't think just use your instincts and true champions us a more instinctive than most and it's demonstrated every week on the sports field. And when you watch another sport that i do like i do follow that compares to it is formula one so when you look at the of the formula one rice to the ended the rice on qualifying grid. There's less than like a couple of seconds from the front to the guy at the back. There's nothing in it. So what's the difference between the go out the front and the back. He's instincts and he caught. It was a little bit better yet. Get it. There's going to be people that are arguing that for sure. But if you if you put them all in an indycar where the indy cars are all exactly this. What's the difference between the go out the front and the woman at back. Nothing instincts instincts. They instincts are what make them different. A sore. I am kind of remind me once sore. I report with the he was a sports reporter and back in the day. When schumacher was in his heyday he played the game slaps with him. Remember that two hands together. Like you're gonna pray and you put your fingers and you slap light. That reporter was flogging shoe mecca. And he's come on. I thought you would be better at this. Game is what place play or drive a car for living and it just kind of showed that you mental called cognition between hand and you're and slapping somebody else's hand had nothing to do with your ability to drive a car and the instincts that you have when you drive around at three hundred twenty kilometers now. And i think that's. That's quite of held..

"Mean, this is our livelihood. We could lose everything. Yeah. Get me the hell out of him Booking a point to get back to New York. Because I got to say my show. Yeah. So you know, this film promises to give you even more of a backstage look at some of the key problems and conflicts that shaped her legend. Well, Eric, there's also another movie that similar it's the bio pic about rap duo, salt and pepper on lifetime. And the group had a lot of creative say in this piece. And then there's this Michael Jordan Doc that was really popular. The last dance with ESPN Kevin Hart's Netflix docuseries about himself. Those, of course, are documentaries. But is this a proven model? Do you think we'll see a lot more of these kinds of projects? Well, it's interesting. I mean, so that salt and pepper bio pic aired earlier. And they took flak because they didn't really talk a lot about spend a rela who is the third member of the act, and, you know, famously, they have been on the outs been a relic claim that she was fired from the group in 2019. And so you might understand why they might minimize her role in the TV film. But still, you wonder, and what's interesting is I think we're entering a moment. Where celebrities realize people want the sense that they seeing an authentic story so they can't really hold back all the negative stuff, But I do think that their very presence can influence the filmmakers. To pull their punches a little bit. So this is a new form of storytelling that we have to keep in eye on because it's easy to assume that these shows air telling you most of what happened. But you have no idea what they're leaving out. And I think that's the one thing.

ESPN Michael Jordan doc: 'The Last Dance' episode 3-4 highlights

"From now last night the last dance Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls we have a so it's three and four and these two episodes centered on two different revolving storyline it's been a little bit confusing as great as the filmmaking is it's been a little confusing if they darted back and forth between eras the reason they're doing this is not just a start to finish documentary the timeline of the nineteen ninety Chicago Bulls which which start hypothetically would Jordan gets there the eighties then go right through nineteen ninety eight instead of it's built around the all access footage that they got in nineteen ninety eight and so that's got to be at the core of it and then they build around that the sub plots of what happened with Jordan first got there the building of the culture of the hiring of Phil Jackson the resentment of the Jerry Krause the addition of Scotty Pippin all these little things along the way and so last A. U. two totally different eras kind of combining these two episodes the one era being the nineteen late nineteen eighties early nineteen nineties wars with the Detroit Pistons the bad boys pits and buys that Thomas Joe Dumars and Dennis Rodman and then the modern carnival surrounding Dennis Rodman with the bulls and I say moderate in air quotes because it was nineteen ninety eight so you have the late eighties wars with the pistons and the late nineties battles in keeping Dennis Rodman on tracks was been a little confusing to go back and forth if you're not really familiar with how the whole thing unfolded I thought as I assumed that the episode against the episode of the wars with the pistons were going to was going to be one of the most captivating if not the most captivating because it is a moment in time where Michael still can't win and I think that there is I don't want to see it inaccurate because it is accurately the the reputation of Michael Jordan's accurately depicted as six time champion he did those things he was six now in the NBA finals six NBA finals MVP awards they never went to a game seven so is accurately depicted as a winner but what is often times forgotten is there is a chunk of his career he is not a winner and when I see the tear downs of lebron James o'reilly C. with anybody's compared to Michael of they don't have the killer instinct they're not a winner they don't take the last shot all this stuff that really is surrounded lebron by and large but it's hit other players as well and kind of makes everybody pal compares to Michael I keep reminding myself and those around me yeah but Michael wasn't always Michael that we know him now he's a finished product he is now a icon he was a winner but there were years that's the reason is because I watch those years had remember getting Sports Illustrated the mail where it said basically you don't the pistons are stopping Michael Jordan could can Michael didn't get past the pistons can Michael Jordan win a championship and that the conversation at that time nationally was Michael great individual player cannot win the title is not good enough to make his teammates better in Seoul I was glad that that part of the narrative is being talked about with that with the pistons that does our blood feuds and Michael could not get over this any loss to the pistons three consecutive years the only highlight the last two years the United ninety last night they lost we get eighty eight as well that is three years off Hey gene for Michael to after where they did they finally get over to nineteen ninety one so those wars to me were the most fascinating part about last night's two episodes because that to me is one of those interesting errors if not the most interesting era of the bulls is that they are better than garbage which they were when he took over when when he got drafted they're not as good as they were when it was assumed they would just blow through the league they're in this transition state it it's almost like it's almost like growing from a warm or caterpillar to a butterfly it's in that moment is the nineteen ninety in nineteen ninety one pivot point post seasons where they lose to the to the pistons in seven and then they finally beat him in nineteen ninety one by sweeping them and I say and the bad boy pistons walk off the floor before the game is over and don't shake the

Here's What We're Watching During Quarantine

"I've had for years box. Dvd set that celebrates the Chicago Bulls six championships in the nineteen nineties. The title is NBA Dynasty Series Chicago Bulls Real quick takeaways couple takeaways Scottie. Pippen totally underrated. I I mean. I know he's considered a legend and one of the top fifty basketball players all time. But but he's even better than that as far as the goat discussion. Greatest of all time between Jordan and Lebron James. All right I conceded. I think it was a year or so ago that Lebron has probably taken that title. I'm more than willing to be argued that I'm more than willing to be argued wrong as a Chicagoan but one thing is for sure after going through some of these. Dvd's Jordan is so much more fun to watch. I mean he just. He spent so much time doing beautiful things. High up in the air way above Lebron's had would have been so That's just a blast to watch now. You can't this is kind of a sneaky. Pick you can't stream this. Dvd set so. I'll take this occasion as an excuse to mentioned that. Espn's ten part Michael Jordan Doc. The last eight they move that up it was gonNA come out on June nineteenth. Yup the release date is April nineteenth. So obviously I can't wait for that listeners. I can maybe loan you my bulls box set because it isn't streaming but otherwise just look for the last dance this weekend on ESPN. I will be watching it. Yeah I have not seen the set that you are watching but I cannot wait for Sunday night. When the ten part doc starts it's been this mythical thing that's been rumored to be in production or potentially production for some time new house coming out and ESPN wisely bumping that up. I think it's something that a lot of people just like us are going to be watching my number three these fall under the category of blind spots and in this case there is a specific hook to Josh. Though it wasn't by design all explain it's my unofficial slash official. Bruce SURTEES MARATHON. So one day. I realize I'm kind of running out of options in terms of things that are really hooking me on net flicks and I know that there are some things I should get to real cinematic blind spots that have been mentioned on the show over the years that I feel regret about but they just seem heavy. I'm not ready for it yet. I need stuff. That's under two hours. I can knock it out and I needed to be reasonably entertaining but I do still WanNa feel like I'm getting some homework done. I do still want to feel like I've crossed something off my list that I felt for some time that I needed to get to so I went over to Amazon prime. And one of the things that popped up happen to be dirty Harry the first dirty Harry movie with Clint. Eastwood Don Siegel directed and right away. I realized how stylishly shot it was and so after I watched it I looked up who the DP was and I see that. It's Bruce Surtees. I think yeah I know that name. I can't really tell you what else he's done. I don't know much about his history's legacy at all but that is a name I have heard and oh I'll just file that away okay. So what's next? Couple of days later I go back to prime one of the film's POPs up. Lennie the Bob. Fosse directed film about Lenny. Bruce and that really is one for me. I've always been ashamed because I adore. Is You know all that jazz. Fosse's film I like cabaret quite a bit as well and in the TV series Fossey Verdon some of the making of Lenny POPs up in that TV series it. Of course POPs up in all that jazz as well. A lot of cutting to scenes of the fosse alter Ego Joe Gideon cutting the movie. That would become lenny so it was kind of just been a joke for me that I've never watched this film. I decide I'm going to sit. And Watch Lenny and. I'm watching the credits. And whose name POPs up is responsible for the Black and white cinematography. It's Bruce Thirty so then decide okay. Well this is just too convenient too much of a coincidence. We're going to make this happen and I'll give you just a little bit of background on him. Is He a name? That's familiar to you at all Josh. Young familiar with the name. I don't think I would have been able to identify any of his movies though right so he got his start as a camera. Operator working with Don Siegel and especially on Siegel and Clint Eastwood Films in the late. Nineteen sixty so movies like two mules for sister Sarah and Cubans Bluff and then his first role as a cinematographer. As the director of photography was Nineteen. Seventy-one it was the beguiled so that Seagal Directing Eastwood and then play misty for me followed that where he was working with eastward again but this time Eastwood as director that was his debut he died in twenty twelve and if you look at his. Imdb the early two thousands in the nineties were not good to surtees out of maybe twenty. Titles there's not one that really stands out as essential viewing and even at the end of the eighties. The decade closed for surtees with rat boy back to the beach and licensed to drive in the eighties for him was otherwise filled with a lot of eastwood's stuff prior to that so movies like Fire Fox and tight rope and sudden impact even honky. Tonk man his heyday really was the nineteen seventies which brought me to night moves. This is an Arthur Penn. Early Bleak Neo Noir starring Gene Hackman as a former football player turned disillusioned private. I would other type of private. I is there in the seventies and it's all set within the movie business so it's reflexive to in the mode of Altman's the long goodbye and then the one I most recently watched was another Eastwood blindspot. Which is Pale writer?
