"I think that's fair. Yeah no. I actually haven't read her piece yet but i know when i watched it on first. Viewing i i went for. I went for the boldness of it. I went for how how kind of itchy in disturbed. It made me feel honestly. I appreciated the the audacity of the film. I think the the different tones. It was going for michael so again overall. I'm more of a fan of that film and that performance. But if i could pick i would give it to davis as well. And she's got all of these really commending scenes in the film and she's butting heads with chadwick boseman or with the producers who are exploiting her and yet whenever i think about the movie and i think about her performance in particular actually think of a line from we recently talked about here on the show. Josh part of our seven from seventy six series when we talked about network. And i don't know if we ever even mentioned beatrice straight through of course sort of infamously won an oscar for really being in houston hodel and she gets that one big showdown with william holden where she's onscreen for nine minutes or maybe it's fourteen minutes or something like that. But she's got that great line where she says i'm hurt. Don't you understand that. And i think about the pain of ma rainey. When i think about that movie not the not the bluster. Kind of the the bravado. She someone when we reviewed the movie. Josh mentioned that she she needs but she can't show that neediness to the world and is much she's a force on stage and that super crucial to her success. It's it's all about that persona george wolf camera and davis as a performer. Reveal what ma rainey is always hiding and the more distance. I get from that performance. The more i really reckon with how good it is not that we ever need to reconsider. How good viola. Davis isn't just about anything i know they rehearse from that. He's black vitamin. Hey in mar. It's what i wanted to talk to you about. Levy's version of that song. It really picks it up asked living. I'll know any of that song. I don't like to sing at. I'm doing it to away. That's why i brought my nephew need to do the voice intro. That's what people want. Now they want something. They can dance to levies. Arrangement gives the people what they wanna make some excited. It makes him forget about their troubles. Are care what you say honey. Levy mess it up myself. I go into people won't let them take it somewhere else. I'm saying my rainy. so anything. no levy song. Now that's all he's doing my agreed so mission well. Here's another confession where i didn't do my homework. I already struggling as listeners. Heard me say with seeing pieces of a woman. I knew it opened with what seemed like a pretty harrowing childbirth sequence. Then josh did the math on it like ran. The stop watching told me was something like twenty three minutes almost twenty five minutes. Yeah okay. And i just knew i was out. And i apologize to vanessa. Kirby i apologize to the producers of pieces of a woman. You can expunge my ballot. I will not kick anyone out. Because i didn't see kirby's performance but i will just remind people and now i don't really have to because you guys did it for me that if they haven't already seen chicago's own kerry the nest they need to because she would be my first name in easily in this category and i don't i haven't thought much about pieces of a woman it except now that we're talking about promising young woman to have two very different films take on to the these just unbelievably anguished scenarios of The loss of a stillborn child sexual assault and the revenge thereof and to have both movies in totally different ways. Play those subjects falsely in my view that that's why they stick in my craw months later after i've forgotten even better movies and you know i i'll wrestle with the reasons why especially with promising a woman for you know for as long as i'm thinking about movies i suppose Well i can play the seneca again here in say how many oscar nominated performances. Can you point to where there's extreme suffering involved now that doesn't mean that's out of bounds for movies to tackle. But as you're saying michael if they tackle them honestly that's something you know that. I think we're more willing to give recognition to as as great performances. And if they don't then it it it can be a front so but certainly suffering is a common thread among the characters in the both those films and you do wonder how much that plays a role into the nominations and the most suffering character may be in that entire categories. We talked about is actually andrade as billie holiday who. I'm sorry. she is great. I mean i like that movie more than almost anybody i know. Y- messy as it is a fully a third of it or so doesn't work at all because it just tries. Suzan lori parks screenwriter. Who's a great playwright. Who maybe i. maybe. I'm just overlooking all the problems because i have too many good memories of what she's done in the past but i don't think so i and andrade great casting choice lead. The is problematic director. Who really gives you a one hundred ninety percent in terms of ideas and attack on the material and really just one hundred work. But i think hundred as great and if she won you know it'd be nice upset. Frankly i although over via davis mistake probably not going to be a win for david. Hopefully a launching pad for a lot of future great performances are oscars ceremony continues after the break when we talk best director and best picture. Plus it's the return of massacre theater. Stay with us Just i am a little nervous. I've thought a lot more about being a dad that i've thought about Making conversation with the person.

"I don't know so. I think this is my cynic most cynical prediction did i just think It may be like okay. Well it costs a fuss. Let's let's not. I mean it's the only plausible nomination that we should award. So let's go. Carrie mulligan. But i don't know i don't even have faith in my my My prediction but i'm going to say for the hell of it. Just just for the element That carey mulligan will win. I think should win. Viola davis from rainy. Even though adam my rainey's structure is just like judas in the black messiah and that. Nobody really knows who that movie's about you know. It's all it's it's my rainey's and the title while she doesn't show till you know nearly a third of the way in on stage in the play and they kind of frontloaded her in the movie just to kind of make a little more prominent where we see your down in rural georgia performing tent show before she was up to chicago for the recording session. But you know it's it's it's such a great performance. Though and viola davis has done such great work with august wilson her whole career on stage. You know fantastic. The you know egregious omission. I would drop vanessa kirby for women and bring in. God i gotta give you four julia garner in the assistant sidney flanagan in never rarely sometimes always carry coon in the nest and know elizabeth mawson Either surely or the invisible man. It's just it's just. It was such great work all four. And that's what i do. you know. honestly i'll be just as happy to see. Viola davis win is she should and i hope she does now. Josh and i we both michael wanna rap you on the fingers for picking four or five for your egregious omission except we agree so much with your choices right line. We're going to do. It can't do it now. Well i ten. I twelve i think. Twelve for the next one and seventeen for best picture. Drank felt who did you say is getting bumped michael from this. This current would bump of kirby for pieces. Okay got it okay Yeah i think for best actress. Viola davis is gonna win. I think viola davis should win. I think whenever viola davis appears in an adaptation of an august wilson. Play you give her the oscar so we can just do that moving forward. I think who should have been nominated. I'm gonna pick someone from your list. Michael ended is carrie. Coon vicious delicious performance. Just maybe the most purely enjoyable. That i saw last year and so i would have loved to have seen her it. Would it would kind of been You know the equivalent of paul racy nod. I think she's more high profile that he is but still someone. You would never expect it to see. That would have been just great. I feel much better about who. I'm going to boot after what you said michael. Because i think i'd have to take out carey mulligan here and i know that his heresy to adam and certainly to sam our producer I just you know this is a movie of very difficult movie that overall i do appreciate even as i struggle with a lot of elements and as far as mulligan's performance goes. I think she was more than gamed. Okay for these charge scenarios that the writer director emerald fennell designed for the movie. She's captivating in each individual seen on its own. I think that's the technical talent that you're talking about. But i never got a sense. That cassandra registered as this full person. Outside of these clever games that the movie was playing. And for that. I think it's just a you know a degree below. Then i guess going back to carry coon. Imagine carrie coon as she is in the nest plane that part in promising young woman and i think you have something closer to what would have made that movie really saying in a way that i know a lot of people have connected to it And so this is one of those cases where i mistrust my own response. A little bit but But yeah. I think. I'd have to take out mulligan if i'm gonna make room for kerry well michael. You said you were picking mulligan to win. She will win for the hell of it. And i'm with you. I can't articulate why. It's just a gut feeling i think mulligan is going to win and i would be okay with it. I'm i'm higher on her performance. I'm higher on the movie. That i think both of you are though michael i would love to talk about it more with you some time because the more distance i get from it the more the more problems i have with it. There's no doubt about that. But there's still a part of me and i know we shouldn't do this where we give performers the award for other performances. We like more but you know what after an education and never let me go and wildlife. Okay i i'm fine with her wedding in fine with her. Winning is exactly exactly. Why wildlife mudbound. She's been great in so many different things it. She's she's just as a and it's not just about somebody's quality you know. We're just going to goof up but she doesn't remind me of anybody in this and that's except she is just so indelibly but also dazzlingly versatile in so many ways but you know. I always when when pressed discussing because i never got the chance yet to write about promising young woman. Just a quirk schedule. I always people to the great dana stevens in front of the show obviously is just one of the one of the best critics in america and then she's just as written beautifully about about her problems with promising young woman and i think i think that's that's true me always the first and only references reader and then argue..

"I'm not sure the academy's really willing to put its full force behind an amazing performer. Like la- keith stanfield. And maybe that performance to it it gets back to some of my issues with the writing that performance was maybe just a little bit too slippery to really to really feel like it's one you want to say was one of the year's best it's it's pretty nuanced and i do think it's good but i don't think it quite has the the overall impact of columbia so maybe i think there's not going to be as much of a split joshua's you might anticipate. And he's won. Several clue that has has won several major awards for that performance. Already that seems to be you know who knows the oscars. That's that's only fifty percent of the time sort of trail you can follow. You know the the oscars will follow that That passed. But i think i think in this case they probably will and it is the kind of performance that the usually do give awards to their speeches their showcase moment so that all makes sense to me. Yeah that's the thing about about. What you said was calling him in every single single shot and close up is a is another specie oscar. Ready moment you know. And that's and that's my quibble with it. I think you know. I don't usually get hung up on realism. You know at all. I always quote tennessee williams. I don't give me realism. Gimme magic or or no. I think he actually said that. Don't give me liberty. give me death. But i'm getting up. But but i just think. Sasha baron cohen who is such such an acute mimic in so many ways in so many different guises to just sorta disregard the the really combustible zigzagging unpredictable energy of the real abbie hoffman. Slow that movie down for me. And and yes i guess you know. He's he's a skillful and artful enough straight performer. Comically tinged always. But in this case as you say josh he may well be rewarded for you. Know cutting the clowning out general Because they're all calls for. Yeah i don't know that's that's my thing but the interesting for the five nominees here. Real life historical figures. That's another difference there. Josh where lookie stanfield even playing a real life figure though not one anybody really knows anything about in contrast to fred hampton in terms of who should win. I was elated when these nominations were announced to find that my two favorite supporting male turns of the year did get nominations. Leslie junior from one night in miami and paul racy from sound of metal when i submitted my chicago film critics ballot. I did give the edge to leslie. Odom junior all five foot seven of him playing sam cooke going up against these really formidable civil rights icons in malcolm x. Jim brown muhammad ali. All with tremendous charisma. All with tremendous stature. And you see that. As well in this category going against daniel colluded as as fred hampton as i said but my heart. My heart is really with paul racy who you'd never describe as charismatic. At least not in the way. Those other figures are those other performers are that we've mentioned but you can't take your eyes off him anytime he's on screen in sound of metal and you lean in every time he speaks or has something to impart and i think it it comes down to how comfortable he seems in his own skin. How at peace with himself. He is but still. He's carrying the weight of someone who had to really struggle to get to that point and after silly games from lovers rock racy gave me my favorite scene of the movie year which is just a conversation that happens about three quarters of the way or closer to the end of side of metal. Between racy and -rism ahmed really tough bracingly honest conversation between the two really uncomfortable conversation even though nobody nobody raises a voice. Nobody gets angry with each other. You just have to. Really talented artists giving unflinching performances. And after i saw sound metal my entire letterbox review is just for your consideration. Paul racy and of course at this time nobody was nobody was talking about the oscars. I don't think he was on anybody's radar. I never imagined. When i wrote it that he'd actually get nominated. I just knew. I wanted to lead that. That parade right right. That's what i'm saying. That's exactly the kind of great performance that never gets no it. Doesn't you know. And he said he told me when i interviewed said the director had a really basically beat the acting out of him. You know he said. I don't want any acting. Yeah i don't want it it's just you got it. Just do it. And i think i read it in your article where you talk to him. Michael that they considered robert duvall for this role. And i'm sure robert duvall would have been very good. Robert duvall probably would have gotten an oscar nomination. Frankly but i'm really happy that we got paul raissi's take on this character and i don't imagine either that he's actually going to win but it would make me happy as any oscar win. I can think here's to praying egregious omission. I don't need to continue beating up. Sasha baron cohen but i agree with the two of you and i think if i had to sub in one actor it would be malachi. Kirby from steve mcqueen's mangrove lou plays darcus allen new face to me and he's very good. Is this trinidadian adventists in that movie. Part of these small acts anthology which i think you can still see on on amazon prime lots of good performances in that film. Yeah i will say it was. It was maybe unfair to watch chicago. Seven because i caught up with it late after having seen small axe mangrove in particular which does turn into a courtroom drama. And just how both bills handle that genre and a lot of the sort of cliches that you're gonna come up against and how actors to handle it because i agree with you adam. That's that's a great performance. A small one tucked into that film. To let us organized a demonstration will into the diagnose boy. This is nothing hill. This is nothing. He'll this place demand growth. It's not taking him whether you recognize so not. This is the front line. The is going to the black community. Is your community the black community who rely on the mangrove. Just as much as you rely on them. Take it to the street taken to the streets prank. Just use it as an excuse. We move onto best supporting actress. The nominees are maria. Buckle ova for borat subsequent movie film glenn close for hillbilly elegy. Olivia colman the father. Amanda savory manque an eugene yoon for me nari michael your pick will start with. Who will win. You're young will win for monari. I think that's that's a. I would bet money on that and i would be happy and we'll be happy when she does the one. I really missed on this list. I think really deserved to be. There is talia writer in elisa. Hickman's film never rarely sometimes always which we're not hearing about at all you know oscar night Which is which is like a lot of the very best. And i would say the most ardently and expressively feminist films. I've made in america last year or released in last year. that You know something. Something's telling me that the presence of promising young woman my most problematic title of the entire list this year is just clogging up space. That should be taken by other better films but anyway talia writer and never really sometimes always terrific performance. It's a kind of poetic naturalism. That a lot of the the titles most prominent in the conversation this year from a no-man's-land are kinda hitting debris you know moods and strains of the sort of poetic sometimes effectively sometimes maybe a little problematically. That's a great performance and man. I hate to say it. But glenn close for hillbilly allergy. It's that's that's that's a really really mediocre performance in a kind of profoundly misguided adaptation of the something that you know maybe ron howard was wrong director to try to adapt so i i you know anyway. That's that's that's what sticks out to me. So michael we got your who will win your egregious omission there and it sounds very clearly. Like you're cutting out glenn close of the nominees. Who would be your pick to win..

"Welcome to film spotting you know josh. Every year we talk about how much we don't care about the oscars. I don't even remember the last ceremony. I watched and yet every year. We do this. Oscar extravaganza are we ever going to learn and every year. I have to remind you you don't care about the oscars i m. I've never missed a ceremony. I think in my life but but yeah I know it's something we kind of do for the show. A little reluctantly. But i think we always have fun. So i'm glad we're doing it again. We do have fun and the big reason we have. Fun is because this offers a great excuse to elevate the show to bring back. Our friend from the chicago tribune. Michael phillips michael. Welcome to the virtual red carpet. Thank you thank you. It's an honor just to be nominated to be here. And it's michael phillips esquire for this night only please of course told noted now also good timing to bring you on michael. We did recently wrap. Film spotting badness best of the eighties we have crowned a champion and regular listeners. Longtime listeners know you love film spotting madness pitting films against each other and crowning a winner. It's it's just your favorite thing. Ever so i'm going to ask you before we share with you the winner. Do you have a guess. What movie which one the best film of the listeners listeners. Four as the best film of the nineteen eighty four. Michael where do you think you're just dearly. Beloved raiders of the line. Well i happen to know from various social media. That raiders was in pretty hot contention was it not was made the final four right. It's funny wouldn't even made spielberg's final four but that's fine. that's fine. You know k. We are off to agree. I mean it's fine. That hole deeper. Save the suspense will let you know. Which film did eventually win here. Later in the show. I'm pretty sure you'll be happy about it. Who'll if you want see how. This year's spotting madness went down. Just go to film spotting dot net slash madness. That's where you can find the link as well to the shortlist for next year's madness. Yes it's already begun. Michael to be the best of the yes. That's my decade there. You're going to get down to sixty four movies right now. The shortlist is at a hundred and thirty three potential candidates to make the big dance and it seems to be growing every day. And you clearly should be a consultant. Yeah i was gonna say. The selection committee look. I'm the guy who sat literally inside the sensor on speaker in the back of the theater to see earthquake. So wow i never. He was there. Maybe you shouldn't be a can because quake earthquake did not come up in any watson. Committee's deliberations on behalf of every judge. George kennedy fan club i. I'm i'm outraged. This show is about the best films of one year. Twenty twenty kind of. And i guess i'll add. Allegedly the oscar ceremony will be held live and in person on sunday april twenty fifth. Push back from its traditional february date and this is how out of touch with the oscars. I am until. I read this note from our producer sam earlier today. I had no idea that only the nominees. Their guests and presenters will be in attendance. But of course that does make sense now. Michael i hate to start us off on a very serious note as were going to take the rest of the proceedings decidedly unserious early. But i got my chicago tribune. Thrown in my drive wrote picked it up decided with my morning coffee to read what one michael phillips had to say and your column addressed you know the arc light and other cinemas closing down and then you wrote this when talking about and thinking about the oscars remember the whole thing about predicting oscar winners back before the pandemic before the twenty twenty killings of george floyd and so many others before what happened again in minnesota just last week. This time dante right. It's no wonder the oscar seem insanely frivolous this year. Life right now is more about nailing down your second vaccination or trying to stay sane while another black or brown citizen is killed by the police. Then speculating on. Who will win. Best supporting actress. We turn now to our picks for best supporting not not the transition. I really wanna go for there but this is weighing on my mind. I know it's weighing on joshua's mine. Should we just shut down the show right now. That's it call it. Call it a show maybe eight eight minutes or whatever it is i mean yeah you know i i'd be in favor now i wouldn't really i i think i but i tell you i wrote that and i just don't feel like it's easy to be a barrel of laughs on this topic Let alone insight because it just is. I guess it's the same thing that we might have felt during wartime and world war two. Maybe it's the same thing that felt that the just a the bottom of the depression and thirty two thirty three. But there's something else going on here. I don't i you know who wrote a really good piece yesterday. And i thought absolutely nailed the moment. We're in oscar. Wise is brian lowry my old. La times colleague. Writing for cnn did you. Did you guys read the did not. Now it's a he talks about. This very simply doesn't really get into the whole kind of socio psycho nightmare. We're living in a nation right now. But he says if the oscars needed a general theme this year beyond just honoring the best in movies to closure of the arc light and pacific cinema chain has perhaps given them one spread the message to save theaters. And i mean. It's about more than two theaters. I mean he's specifically talking about the arc light on sunset boulevard which is which is the first really cool multiplex. I'd ever been to in my life when it opened in two thousand two right next door to the pacific cinerama dome which is a uniquely bizarre volleyball of of an icon right movie going and this is really. This is what's going on here..

This is your first new year in a new place to live this. Yeah it's been about six months since we've been down here but yeah the first official winter. The weather is pretty much the same as as in the chicago suburbs. I'd say in the winter Maybe a little milder down there. A little less wind than there is here. But yeah we're doing we're doing well. Thank you very much for filling in this week. I i'm guessing that adam is off really studying his movie trivia You were with us. Michael last weekend's trivia spotting contests his team. I'm afraid didn't fair too. Well and so i imagine he's. He's out there studying getting ready for our next show. How did your team fair reminding. I've been such as one once. You know what head on so many weeks ago now. And i've never come close since and i have to blame. You know all my teammates. Honestly i you know i. I wanted to stack the deck. So that all my incredible lack of knowledge on the marvel cinematic universe in the basically most of the star wars stuff would be plugged in by some of my cohorts now. Well i've only won once as well and i'm going to credit might teammates for that as as you saw this last week and i can tease adam but i failed spectacularly in the lightning round. I couldn't even pull the title of. It's a wonderful life out of my hat given the clue bedford falls and and of course it's a lightning around so everybody's watching it's live and it was a face plant. I'll i'll just say. I don't know if you've experienced this during trivia spotting but for those answers that are obvious i find. There's like a millisecond window where your brain knows it and if you don't blurt it out that window shots and that's right it's it's honestly no different. I just enough bad college theater to know just like forgetting your line. There is nothing in the world. You can't muscle it into existence of. It's not fair so yeah. If anyone wants to see me regularly embarrassed myself please do join us for our next trivia spotting event.

Now that'll be considered for oscars. They're also coming on demand. Regina kings one night in miami. That's one that's coming to prime video this weekend made adams top ten list of really good really good. Yeah
Film Academy Announces New Diversity Requirements For Best Picture Nominees
"Hi. This is in the Chicago Tribune yesterday. In an historic move, the Oscars are raising the inclusion bar for best picture nominees, starting with the 96 Academy Awards. This is the one in 2024. Gives the motion picture industry time to do what they say you need to do if you want to be considered for the best picture to meet on screen representation, Standard of film must either have atleast one lead character or a significant supporting character be from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group. At least 30% of secondary roles must be from to underrepresented groups. Where the main storyline theme or narrative must be focused on an underrepresented group. Otherwise, the way I understand it If you're not including people who are under represented relative to gender orientation, race, ethnicity, even disability. If you don't do that, then you can't be the best picture. Michael Phillips. Film critic joins us on W G N Hi, Michael. Welcome to the show. Thank you, John. How are you doing? Really good. That's my understanding of it is that is that a right read on what they're going to do. It is it's although it's it's damn complicated, but, you know, really broken down beautifully with Steve Zai, Check my festival going, pal who's writes in The Washington Post that it's complicated, but you gotta get to Of the four elements right story. The film story, lead actor or ensemble have tto prominently feature unrepresented groups or, you know those working behind the scenes, Same thing, or the production includes paid internships and training for those who are under represented, or that always released team has to have multiple in how senior executives from underrepresented groups, so it's complicated. But you only gotta hit two of the four and I think that I think the telling point he makes is that out of the last 15 best picture Oscar winners last 15 years. 73% of would have been quite clear. No problem. I'm not just talking about what happened. Moonlight or parasite we have, you know, clearly like not the usual white wall of characters or treatment, but you know there's all kinds, so it's not really a cz. I don't want I don't want to. I don't wanna throw fuel on this fire. But it's not really to say it's not the same kind of You know, like under. What would you say affirmative action that a lot of the right is framing it as but you're also saying, I mean, so you see the glasses three quarters full, but I You could also see it is one quarter empty. That is one in four films would not that one. The best picture had met this criteria. Not usually, but I mean, if you just had hired, Let's say, Let's say you didn't even re cast that or rethink anything. It's on screen. Right in terms of the characters are the actors, If you just if those productions had, well, you know what Let's we're all we have is a bunch of white grips or we've never had a female, You know, director of photography or we've never had any any composer of color, you know, working out? Why not? Why not think twice about that? That's that's a less visible but equally important. Right. I think people will judge this though maybe by what they see on the screen on I'm thinking, okay. King speech won best picture that was populated Desire recalled by white people. However, that is about a disability if you will, so maybe that satisfies the requirements. I could just see there being lobbying for some of these criteria to Yeah. Yep. Yep, the ones that would have would have run into a problem. According to the Washington Post, uh, run down his argo, the artist, No country for old men. And the Departed would have had the toughest time as wass. But, you know, it was a little again with a little adjustment. I look, I'm not, You know, I'm not the guy who's gonna Say this is an outrage. I'm just not that guy. You know a TTE the same time, John. I know I'm a hypocrite. Because, you know, I'm one of a white wall of critics of Chicago trip, you know, so it's a sensitive topic. And this is all part of kind of what we're You know what? What Every person in this country is dealing with one way or the other, which is like you know what? How do we? What is this country? You know, what are we supposed to look like? How can we? How can we broaden our perspective of what we see and what we write and what we read.
How One Covid-19 Victim Was Lost in the Chaos
"Images and stories from the pandemic that will be seared into many people's memories forever. One of them was the discovery in April of rental trucks, holding dozens of dead bodies out a funeral home in New York City. The people found that day were victims not just of the coronavirus, but of a system overwhelmed one of them was seventy two year old nathaniel hallman. He lived in the Bronx with his wife Mitzi. They were married for forty two years. He repaired whirlpool appliances and in retirement he and his wife or a Deacon and deaconess at the Church of the Meek Baptist. Harlem they visited. visited the sick and shut ins in early April at the height of the pandemic and New York City home in was at a Rehab Center in the Bronx, where he was diagnosed with nineteen, the sent him to the hospital next door where a few weeks later he succumbed to the disease, but that's not where the story ends. It's where it begins our reporter Michael Phillips. He died on April Seventeenth, at Saint Louis Hospital and his goddaughter hope who is a very astute person. decided she would take responsibility for making sure that he was cremated and taking care of and and so his wife is widow. mitzi wouldn't have to do it. And so hope was under the impression that she had only seven days to get his body in the hands of funeral director, or the hospital would give the body to the city, and the city would bury him in a mass grave on Hart Island, which is a the Potter's field for New York City. One hundred and fifty years that the people have been left behind have been buried on on heard island. And, so she thought okay I've got a week to find somebody to take care of the body, and she started calling funeral homes, and they were all full. This was the height of the epidemic of hundreds and of New Yorkers were dying at a day on the day that that Daniel died three hundred eighty four New Yorkers died. And so the funeral homes would just overloaded. She called something like twenty funeral homes, and they all said we can't take him. Her Middle Son was even doing an internship at a Newark New Jersey funeral home and they were full to take Nathanielsz bodies. So she grew more and more panicky over the course of the week, and she contacted a family friend Reverend up in Connecticut, Marshall, Morton and Reverend Morton being in the you know the business of of being a clergyman new number of funeral home directors called up an old contact that he had named James Robinson. Mr Robinson worked out of a funeral home in Neptune City New Jersey as well as one in Brooklyn. And so he said, according to Reverend Morton I'll take care of this for you. I've got it and please. Please take the body down to my funeral home in Neptune. So the Reverend and hope son managed to find a funeral director, who would could drive the body out of New York to Neptune New Jersey Neptune city. And deliver it just before the what hope thought was the deadline at the hospital. They get the body out of there, so they took the bodies of Neptune city Mr Robinson the funeral director was not there. A person who was there said I'm sorry. I can't accept this body. They called up. Mr Robinson the funeral director. And this is where there's a lot of disagreement about what took place, but from the point of view of the family and Reverend Morton. What happened was Robinson said. I didn't mean for you to take it to. New Jersey Take my place in Brooklyn, this is something that that Mr Robinson disputes. He says he never said such a thing. The driver took the body up to Brooklyn to a funeral home called likely funeral services on UTICA avenue in Brooklyn. He dropped the body off there with the people who were there. They put it in. A refrigerated truck was parked on the street. And the family assumed everything was OK at that point. The body was supposed to be cremated on the twenty ninth so a few days later. And when hope called the the crematory to ask whether or not or godfather had been had been cremated, she got an answering. Machine were closed for maintenance the next day. She got answering machine message, but Never received confirmation he had been cremated. During this time news broke about all these bodies in Brooklyn in U. Haul trucks, and that was the same address where they had dropped off Mr Hallman. So hope began to panic and put things together. She called up the Reverend. The Reverend put things together. They all started to worry and at that point they tried to get Mr Robinson to explain where the body was. They tried to get a funeral home to explain where the body was tried to get the city. Medical Examiner explain where the body was, and they just couldn't find. It took until the fifth of May until. Finally learned that her godfather's bodied Nathaniel Hamad's body had actually been in the back of an unrefrigerated u-haul truck left on the street in Brooklyn, just a horrible horrible discovery, and it wasn't the end for Nathaniel. Family, who then spent several weeks trying to get his body and arranged for his final resting. What happened after this? There was another misstep when the bodies were discovered at the funeral home. In the U.. Haul trucks hope called the city medical examiner's office. They had come over. You know when the when the police got there and the after nine one one call reporting bodies and trucks on the street. You know hope called everybody. She could find the governor's offices. The attorneys general of the State of New Jersey and New York. You know. Where's My Godfather? And when she called the medical examiner's office, they had already collected sixty one bodies from the trucks and from clerk. Lee's funeral home itself, including many that would simply on the floor in various states of undress, and on the floor of the Chapel at the funeral homes just loaded with bodies. And so she when she called the medical examiner's office, they went through the list of all the bodies. They retrieved from the funeral home from the trucks. And Nathaniel Holman's name was not on the list, so for days and days she couldn't find out where he was. She even went over with Reverend Morton to the funeral home. Mr Clearly was not there at the time. Mr Robinson was not there at the time and she said. My father was here. Where is he and couldn't couldn't get an answer? And, what happened was and the fifth of May. That medical examiner's office discovered that the name on his paperwork had been reversed as hallman nathaniel so when they had looked up the bodies they had. When hope it call then they looked in their record, says he will what bodies we have. Do we have in home? It came up as a negative. The only had a home in faneuil. And by the fifth of May, they figured this out, and now remember he died on the seventeenth of April, so we're no weeks into this, and only then does hope discover that. In fact, her godfather had been in one of trucks and was now in the care of Medical Examiner's office. At that point, the the medical examiner said look. We have him safe. He's in. You know in cooled unit, so he's he won't decay. To be blunt about it. You can leave them here until you find a funeral director. WHO's able to cremate him? which is what the family wanted to do, so they held onto him and it wasn't until five weeks after his death. I think thirty nine days exactly after his death that they were able to get him cremated, and now his ashes are in an urn that his his widow Mitzi keeps at her bedside Michael. What else did you hear from city officials in response to this as well as from the quickly funeral home. The state authorities suspended Mr Claes. Licensed to act as a funeral director, and then held a series of hearings online hearings to decide whether to permanently revoked his license for you know poor practices, the ruling has not yet come out. They've had three hearings and the lawyers have submitted final closing statements, but the administrative law judge has not yet ruled on whether to revoke his license in listening to the at least one of those hearings, and in talking to Mr.. Claes attorney, he's basically the the argument is they were holding the bodies in the U. Haul trucks as they were moving them from the refrigerated truck which was. Recognized waited two whole bodies into the funeral home to be packaged up four cremation. And so he said we would keep them in the in the U. Haul trucks for a while and then move them. It was hard I think for the prosecuting attorney. I guess he'd be called the prosecuting attorney. Understand that because the argument is why not just move them from the refrigerated truck all the way into funeral home instead of stopping. This is just a matter of a few yards, so stopping and putting them in a truck. Mr Quickly. That's Mr Clarke's defense as well as his lawyer said to me. Look the whole city was inundated with bodies. Just wasn't enough. Space to handle the mall and so things happen. And he said that he thought it was unfair that his client Mr clinically was being singled out when so many other funeral homes were also overcrowded in his in his argument. So, that that is his defense Mister Robinson's defense. He has not been charged with any anything by the state. He has not been his has not been suspended, but in talking to him, his argument is. I never had that body. I never signed any paperwork saying that that body was under my control so everyone who says that I did agree to take control of Mr. Hammond's body is line. That is his argument. There are text messages back and forth in which he says that he would take care of the body, but he also said and give me the paperwork, so there's now a lawsuit underway Msci Hallman and hope dukes. Who is the the Goddaughter of Daniel? Hallman have filed suit against the he quickly home as well as Mr. Robinson And are seeking damages for what they describe of course as mistreatment of Nathaniel remains. Michael as you say, and as you've heard from many of the people in this story, Nathanielsz body was one of dozens discovered in rental trucks during the height of the pandemic. What did reporting out the story and what happened in this one case? Tell you about what happened here in New York at the height of this. So, what are your takeaways from this tragic story? This won't come as a surprise to anybody but. When the pandemic really hits and went really hit New York. Hardest I. At least in the United States of course. It just overwhelmed the system. The city and the people who who manage these things would just not ready for overwhelming the doctor. Was Internal Internist resident at Saint Barnabas Hospital. Who took? Mitzi up to see Nathaniel before he died is she would cry constantly into her. into a mask and goggles because there's just so much misery. All around her. And the same situation occurred with with the body's. Just the city. Wasn't prepared for the awfulness that that's that hit it. I can't judge whether they should have been more prepared. Or there was some mistake making made made at some point. That's not really within my capacity to judge. But, certainly, it was overwhelmed. And that meant that there are a lot of a lot of collateral damage and. Michi and hope, and of course Nathaniel himself were part of that collateral damage, and now I think. Between lawsuits and historians and journalists looking back at what happened. We'll start to peel that apart and figure out. Who did what who could have done things that were you know could have done things better and who who? Who did the best they could?

"Oh He's he's Geraldo and he's Rudy Giuliani and it's so distracting and even unfortunately thoenes performance as Megan Kelly where where she gets the machine like physicality of Megan Kelly. She gets the look right she gets the expressions right and yet it never feels like anything more than an imitation angry. And that's that's a high wire. Act that every performer. Who's playing a role person has to walk and has to figure out Zuluaga figured it out there and didn't hear as Megan Kelly but I also honestly put a lot of the blame for that on the writing in the direction I think maybe if she had better material cereal we would see a better performance? At least I want to believe that. But the performance we get in bombshell now worthy of asking I agree. There's a key moment that is among many any of that. I think it's not a terrible film. And I've certainly seen worse. You know stabs Ed had kind of sardonically handled recent history whether it's on the subject during the are others but there's that moment where she says. Wait a minute wait. Am I turning into the story and and you're supposed to believe that Megan Kelly didn't have at least some some the wherewithal that yeah and I just think I think it's I think it it gives that character such a pass that that the Makes me question my guess. My ability to kind of leave politics out of watching a very deeply political moving in into what degree or in what ways that's actually useful full as a viewer as a critic to do that d really leave politics off the table or into a political spinner interpretation on a story like this. I'm not sure but somehow it it did sort of affect and limit Shirley stearns performance as Megan Kelly. It just seems like as you say. Okay kind of Half flattering unduly flattering half. Can't have you know Sli- Caricature Caricature and it's somehow that makes you just want to jump back quickly to the LUPITA and young Omission because I remember seeing circulate on twitter I forget who I put it out there but the image of the Hollywood reporter Actress Roundtable cover and this was in November. This is before any nominations came out. They were gathering the actresses who were getting the most buzz and they thought were likely nominees. You had six women. On their Scarlett Johansson Lupita young though Laura dern and Aquafina Jennifer Lopez and Renee Zellweger. Now in your mind you can probably already see. You have three women of color their guests which three were nominated nominated by the academy and guess which three were not. I mean I know the it's it's that you know we're sitting here speculating. I wonder why Lupita neon go. You know it's kind of curious. It's Kinda missile I mean. Sometimes you have the evidence right there that brings us to best actor Josh. The nominees are all right Antonio Banderas. Dan Darris for pain and glory. Leonardo di Caprio for once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver for marriage story walking Phoenix for joker. And we gotTA Pope. We've got ourselves OPPO. Jonathan Pryce in the to Michael will one of the pope's in this case. Jonathan Pryce win the Oscar. No no no I like that film fine you know I do like me now like the performances but no I think I think the should win the for me the should one is is Antonio Perez or it was two weeks ago and I'm not it's a real close this call with Adam driver to my regard for marriage stories just couldn't be higher but I would say you know the Will Win is easy Joaquin Phoenix and joker should should win for me. You know tie between Derozan Adam driver. I guess but I wrote I wrote Bandera. So that's what I'm doing. What about you okay? All right I think I think walking Phoenix will win. I'm going to go back to for the track record thing. He has four nominations and no wins. So you know in a sense. If you're looking at this can be voter. You could say he's due for the record. I was was thinking earlier. I had said there might be a joker. Category that did make my top five in critics voting groups and actually. I didn't have it that I walk in. Phoenix was not even in my top five. I think he was in my top ten for male lead performances of the year as far as who should win. I think I'm torn with you. Michael Between Adam driver for an Antonio Banderas I'm leaning toward driver because the performance obviously but also because I went with Johannesen as who I thought thought should win in the actress. Category and part of me thinks that you know he and Joe Hansen. They either have to both win or both lose. They're just so so you're saying it's like learn. Va Michael Cain and sleuth. That was always talk back but it is. You know those are two performances that They do have wonderful moments independently. But when you think about we've talked about The really impressive sequences in marriage story. It's when they're acting off each other so obviously I do think Joaquin Phoenix is going to win and it bums me out because you know I'm walking Phoenix's biggest fan. I would love to be sitting here saying yes finally finely. He's going to get his do and he's going to get his do and it's going to be for performance that is the only one of the nominees didn't like I love the other four. I found Phoenix in particular as cloying and overbearing as the movie itself and I think that the sheer toil of the performance. How Hard Phoenix is clearly? Working thing is what's going to get him the Oscar that does as I said Bombie out but overall I joke during one of our previews last year. He's the greatest actor alive. Yes I'll even put him ahead of Daniel day-lewis so you know what he hasn't lost that a that stature of really close in terms of who should win. I'm going to say it has to be Adam driver. I think they are my couple who should be married forever and Oscar. It's not gonNA work out that way but I do. Love driver's is performance. I think those are the two best lead performances of the year. And how about Sam our producer in the film spotting newsletter this week which you can subscribe to. FM spotting dot net slash newsletter. Her shocking. Everyone the guy who I think is the only person who loves Mary Story even more than you Weichel. And he goes and says that if marriage story is first and foremost in achievement government of writing and directing with some brilliant acting once upon a time in Hollywood film. I didn't love Sam. Notes is first and foremost an acting achievement with some great production design Zayn credit to Tarantino for creating Dalton but the specificity of DiCaprio's work his bitterly funny self loathing charisma and sense of entitlement masking deep anxiety. His his barely concealed stutter. Is What makes him so memorable so Sam actually going with just edging out at driver Leonardo DiCaprio and I love the performances Rick Dalton too but for me it is driver in marriage story and I might take issue a little bit with Sam claiming that it's first and foremost and achievement of writing and directing with that really acting. I think that without the layers and the life that driver and Johansen breathe into those characters. Charleen Nicole Mirror story could have been a very different movie and could have been a really brutal slog and it's not no no tribute to yes bound backs writing into the directing and the cinematography and the editing. I do think the movie really is a marvel and a lot of ways but I think the acting is just as deserving of recognition for. What makes that movie great? And then I hope driver wins even as I don't think he's probably going to. Unfortunately so what about any big mistakes. I mean honestly the one I would would have been happy pop in there. Was Adam Sandler for uncut gems. A film I like it obvious. One for them attack film I liked didn't love but Performance that reminds you WANNA assessment. Said reminds you that there is a real actor and a really good actor under neath everything else working against Adam Sandler as performed. Why do you think Oscar voters didn't go that route? I mean it seems like it's set there for them or is it the fact that uncut gems movie they just didn't watch it's it's. It's a uncomfortable uncomfortable experience viewers. It's it there's nothing confrontational in Jonathan. Pryce in the two pulps. I mean that's a very reassuringly. We crafty and and pleasurable perform very good But you know I. I've got some questions questions about the safety brothers movie this time and I'm not yet entirely sure why I like it a little less than everything else they've done but But sandwich wonderful in and and and I think It would it would have been good nomination once again. Kevin in Clinton Tennessee writes Adam Sandler got hosed pre Golden Globes. I was ready to make a three way parlay. I Sandler Globes Sandler Sag Sandler Oscar. Alas not our awards voters especially the acting branches punishing the Sandman for his constant lack of seriousness. My Buzz has been killed by his omission from the Oscar ballot and it seems to be a reflection of his peers. Not taking him seriously. He hasn't helped himself. They're really despite his obvious. Skill and unrelenting Energy Asia and tackling such a character is how we ratner it is a performance. I would put up there with the best of the year stopping short. Only of the other Adam Adam driver the only one left. I'm rooting for the best actor. Category so I think Kevin and you guys are right in mentioning Sandler and that notion of him maybe not being taken seriously by his peers or somehow them being put off by. Maybe his campaigning. For this and not earning it properly. That was suggested by one Oscar voter that in New York Post Article Nicholas just about everyone campaigns. Yeah but it was mostly the fact that he somehow didn't take it serious enough and hadn't properly earned it with all the other nonsense sense. He has apparently made but yeah I think that performances Howie Ratner does deserve to be a nominee. Yes obviously I would put it ahead of Joaquin Phoenix the character. We talked about a little bit on our roundtable how he is so self destructive and outright destructive and even if I don't quite align with the Safdie brothers and viewing him as redeemable mable and romantic I understand why they do and that performance is a huge reason. Why there there's an audacity and a brazenness to Howie that I think has to be grounded or or he becomes purely a comic figure and not potentially the tragic that he becomes? So that's easy. We're all agreed on Sandler but I think this is a really difficult category gory to say. Who are we going to take out will not them? I mean I I would have. I didn't have locking Phoenix as You know in my top five performances but I did have a my top ten. I mean maybe it helps if you see this. This is dance performance that he's given so yes. Gestures big are going to be a part of it. That's what I liked about it I also had prices pope in my top ten performances of the year. So I didn't have to Caprio as I'm not with Salmon. I loved that performance. I think it's great but it just I had a lot ahead of it that I thought were even better in a great year so decapa might be the one I would take them. You're taking out. Phoenix is Michael You know there's not a second end of joker that doesn't utterly rely on walking Phoenix to to save it or bail it out or sell it or something and yet if the results are loathsome to me then then I think I would probably say look Joaquin. Phoenix has done. Brilliant Work of not you. You know not every time but nobody. Nobody does every time I think this is just simply A bunch of surface activity in search of a better header interpretation as written. You know it it just feels like a twenty minute Improv. Exercise joint out the two plus hours and I don't no no not for me I just you know I got nothing but trouble with with todd. Phillips is a filmmaker and as a thinker. And I think he's I don't even think he's any good. Would I don't think he's any good with actor giving let's not talk about the movie at all. I mean the movie itself I think. Yeah I think there's about a conflation with Phillips and the movie in ways that were not comfortable doing with a lot of other films there's there's a there's part of Philips in that movie obviously Yes for sure But part of what it makes it disturbing and Interesting to me are our the ways. It's also working against itself and becoming its own. Unruly thing that matches you know I. I don't think it's a movie where you're going to sit down and say I want to know what Todd Hot Phillips is thinking about the world I don't think that's what that movie is giving. I don't but I don't know what what is in that film except for just sustaining attempting attempting to sustain monotonous on revealing mood of dread and anguish. That just absolutely let's character off the hook away in an utterly UN mystifies the character by explaining every every rationale in the A..

Did you desk like you know people. You never met that question. That was his icebreaker party. Sure that went over really well. Well I'll check in with him on that but Anyway so it's really paid off.

There's an audience out there waiting to sing my mouth driving off assistant fine. We get back into our Oscar preview special with that clip live from the Judy Garland Bio pic. Judy Best Actress nominee Renee Zellweger and that scene with someone who maybe should have been a best actress nominee this year. Certainly I I loved performance in wild rose. Jessie Buckley much smaller role in judy the nominees. In addition to Renee Zellweger are Cynthia Areso as Harriet area tubman and Harriet Scarlett Johansson playing Nicole and marriage story Social Ronin as Joe March in little women and Shirley's Sharon as Megan. Kelly Kelly in bombshell Michael. Who Do you think will win? I think it's still gonNA be. This has been kind of a front runner for awhile. Renee Zellweger for Judy I should win. I had Sir Sha Ronin at least a couple of weeks ago I beat frankly just as pleased with especially Scarlett Johansson for marriage I think is a huge huge talent. I think it's a really good performance in a pretty good movie and but But that's I think so. You're still got the sentimental. I don't WanNa just put the sentiment but I know I think it it hits every sweet spot with large swaths of the thousand strong academy. Yeah absolutely and I would have before seeing judy. I would have predicted that you would win for those reasons. I mean it's it's Showbiz showbiz again. Right where we're right back to looking in a mirror But as also the fact that it's sort of comeback for Zellweger. She's done some work but I have not seen her in anything since Miss Potter which I think was two thousand six and I know she's been in films between then and now but I just haven't seen them so she hasn't been quite the presence onscreen for a lot of people In recent years and so this can kind of qualify as a comeback so I think she probably will win as far as should win for me. Yeah it Scarlett Johansson Hanson in marriage story. Just giving. I don't know if it's her best performance of her career. You might say under the skin but think about how different those performances earns is our. This is maybe her best Real world performance. Like a person as I describe it you would meet on the street you might know in your life and to see her doing that. So so while was was kind of astonishing and so I think that It should probably go to Scarlett Johansson. Yeah I'm with you guys that I think it's going to be Zellwegger. I do wish it wasn't for by OPEC even a halfway decent one judy. I wish it wasn't for the performance that does feel like the most acting but I do think she captured garlands ability to tap into a deep reservoir of emotion at any time and there's a real fragility to it and yet there's that a billion of those performances. Yeah Yeah Yeah I I should say like I. I was really impressed. By that. Performance as much as I may have resisted the film and the bio pic genre. And all of that. I mean the physicality that she does bring to to a you're right Adam it's very showy But it's all about it to me. It was almost the the flip side of not the flip side but the woman version of what Adam Sandler was doing the male category gory uncut gems there. was that much throwing tension coming out of her as Judy garland she. I thought she was really good. Yeah I would love to see Scarlett Johansson when though four or marriage story. I think she has the tougher role slightly actually than Adam driver as Charlie at least in terms of audience identification because she is the aggressor when it comes to the actual divorce proceeding. She's the one who escalates things but I think Johannesen embraces all of the kind of contradictions and complexities of Nicole and I re-watch just seen today that I loved the first time I saw marriage story which is kind of an emotional scene. It's where she breaks down and cries for the first time we see her early in the film. But it's that moment where they've come home from her last performance with this theater company and they've had that that attention at the after party and then that IC- ride home on the subway and and at home. They're kind of falling into their usual routines a little bit and she knows that her director husband wants to give her a note even though it would be the most absurd insufferable insufferable thing. He could do because she's never going to play the role again and he points that out yet. She knows that that's what he wants to do. And she says no come on give it to me and and he does says thanks for indulging me and we see her then just walk out of the room and the moment she exits that room we get some waterworks from. I'm her where you just recognize that that dynamic which she's recognizing in that moment that that dynamic is what makes them Charlie in the colts and it makes the the divorce seem. I'm like the probable correct. Course yeah it does. Certainly there's there's that element to but those indulgences of your spouse and those compromises are what marriage is. And that's the last one that is ever going to happen between them like that and it is all over there. And this is my favorite Scarlett Johansson performance. And she's given many good ones so I would really love to see her win. What about an omission? That bothered you a lot. Oh my God is the best of my favorite performance single performance minutes last year on screen as Lupita neon go in us. I mean just just just the work she did to delineate those two characters. And the you've just the ferocity and precision of of all the scenes that require big big acting bigger than I'm talking Zellweger and Judy big. You know no and and that's But it's their technique is so good she is so great I just I. It kills me that she didn't get nominated and I don't know if it's just that the film is difficult for some people to kind of track in like what's actually going on toward the end. I don't know if that came out of March I don't know yeah. I mean you're era. This is the glaring omission. This is the forehead slapping one But there are reasons you can see and you've given some of them why this might have happened. It did come out early. It is Horror Genre that the academy resists but my goodness not only the performance itself Talk about physicality in terms of of what Zellweger's doing judy the element. That the the fact that physicality comes into play in this performance here but how about the fact that it was already an Oscar winner. They love you if you've won once already. At least you get a courtesy nomination the nation I mean. I'm not saying that's how it should work. But it's how it usually does work. So why didn't it work here. The performance was heralded across the board I don't think there was a critics group. That didn't have it in their nominations. At least it was right there for the academy. Yeah I'm with both of you guys on that front as well. LUPITA neon go go is my stupid omission and it's unfortunate that she got overlooked here because Michael you talked about that dual role and it being big. I re watched that scene. Today were introduced to the tethered figure. We finally meet the quote Unquote Monster. Romeo d'appel ganger. And you're right that it's big. In terms of the emotion of it used order earlier the ferocity of it you get that sense from both performances within that single scene and yet they're such a stillness and quiet it to it. She is tapping into all of this emotion without being showy as an actress at all in that scene. If you watch neither character that neon goes playing ever blinks. Those Eyes Wide Open listening intently listening as a performer. So key to neon go does certainly in this role and the way. She's she's listening it's with curiosity and it's actually oddly because she's just suffering through a home invasion and is legitimately terrified and her family is too but there's this is odds of compassion. That almost seems to come through where she she's genuinely wanting to hear the story that's right that's seems so great because it's it's not played for fright that's once it's established and attire. We want to hear that story. And it is some of the most riveting exposition. Yes in just like okay. Give give me some information so I can hang onto. The premise. Here is kind of what the subconscious audience needs are and they get everything they need in its. I've just never seen had more deftly and kind of strikingly delivered. You know I I wish you know whatever I I wish the last twenty minutes or so were as astutely handled i. It's just by then I think he's lost control of whatever mythologies is trying to deal deal with And and create fresh in new. I mean this is a look. This is the one movie that wasn't based on anything. That didn't come from anywhere except for appeals prodigious imagination and that performance that she gives his is. It's a it's a director's dream. Yeah Yeah and in terms of who we would kick out. Michael I think for this category. It's a pretty easy one. The one I would liked to have seen omitted is unfortunately because I really like her as an actress is Charlene Darren for playing Megan Kelly. In the movie bombshell this is a movie that unfortunately feels like a really shabby costume party in every scene. It feels like one where everybody is definitely pretending to be a real person. And it's just chock full of these kind of faces popping up and voices popping topping up. And you're wondering okay..
Michael Phillips on Brad Pitt's 2020 Oscar Chances
"Michael you are on the record here quite vociferously. Yes as generally liking once upon a time in Hollywood except for the last twenty minutes. Yeah hate it. The second time through hater two more. Okay where do you stand on the performance of one Brad Pitt. He seems to be the front runner. Do you think he will win. And do you think he should wait. absolutely will win. I think it's one of the surest bets you can make you know if you're if you're trying to get a coworker a little tipsy so you can start saying things like well let's make it interesting. Let's make the I think it's a real sure thing partly just because it's it's a really engaging performance. It's a great Brad. Pitt is one of these movie stars and this is. This is an idea that cuts completely cross gender and every other thing where you know he he was a movie star and then fifteen twenty years later he became came a good actor and that that can happen. Only if you're a lot lucky and a little bit smart and pick the right roles in the right director actors and push yourself enough that you become a better version of yourself and as an actor and I think that's absolutely happened with him He's certainly one of the chief satisfactions of Tarantino's film
Judy Garland's Top Movie Moments
"Welcome to film spotting Josh. We both took a crash course judy. Garland movies of the last few weeks and today is the final. Are you ready. I think I'm ready yeah I haven't I haven't seen everything. I don't even know if Michael Phillips is seen everything she's major so yeah. I feel prepared. They're still blind spots but this should be I think appropriate to our styles of preparing preparing for a show you methodically doled out the movies took them in over a few weeks and I crammed just didn't college. I procrastinated and I had to hit everything thing at the last minute to be fair. It helps when we actually commit to something for weeks. Had A title which is very rare for the show is rare well. Let's find out if Michael Phillips has is in fact seen every Judy garland movie we welcome in the man who will be handling proctoring duties for our garland examined is Michael Phillips from the Tribune. How are you good to see you goes good to see you. It's been a while I mean it's been a long time. I know it'd be on. I know we do this. More regular like Obama's. First Tournament feels like a slight exaggerate so how many how many do you think you've seen countered them up the garlic first of all. I had a wrong. I thought it was beverly girl. I'm on my three sons so I prepared all wrong. That's next show my next issue. That'll be a download killer. Yes but you know I'd say if you look at all the titles including the the obscure secure ones before she was advised. I've seen two-thirds maybe enough to feel pretty smug about my knowledge base compared to you guys okay okay well. That's all that really matters but let me ask you. Is there one at the tip of your tongue. That is a blind spot. You're embarrassed about. Is there a garland film. You've always meant to see that you haven't y actually I joked. I joked with the email to you guys earlier today about about pigskin parade or actually it was on twitter yes yes. I've never seen pigskin parade now. How you were just needling I was kneeling. I haven't seen pigskin parade. so you know if we can do a whole show on that next week at appreciate it could get to it but no that's of the biggies you know there's a few others in the early forties that I haven't seen him never seen presenting Lily Mars a lot of other things that would just sort of make you look click nipper the dog just staring. You know like what presenting. Lily were so these obscure titles to to to share explore someday later later in the show. We'll talk a little bit about hustlers. The new dramas set in the world of UPSCALE GENTLEMEN'S CLUBS IT Stars J. Lo and Constance Wu Michael and I both had a chance to see that that movie we open to big box office numbers last weekend. We've also got pull results to our question about which acclaimed movie director needs to make a movie set in space a lot of great feedback from that one including one Josh like last week. I might just be setting aside in my back pocket. Just bring on you upon. I'm going to have to leave the studio. We'll see but first I judy garland. The garland biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger opens in limited release including here in Chicago next weekend the reviews so far pretty pretty much what you'd expect from the genre that Josh knows as his most detested movie genre the biotechs a little strong but not my favorite Los Zellwegger herself and getting a lot of praise now Michael. You have made a little bit of the festival around here lately. Did you see no no tomorrow to screening tomorrow. Does the does the listener goodwill no no. It doesn't know that you're going to see gonNA see a trend. We will have to have you back on to hear your thoughts. I could go on singing. I'll I'll go on singing. That's what I'll of course we may or may not get to a full review of Judy here on the show but we did want us the movie as an opportunity to spend some time time on Garland herself who until recently was kind of a blind spot for both of us Josh with the exception of the wizard of Oz of course it really was the Manelli marathon where we got to dive into her work. Is it fair to say that maybe the wizard of Oz isn't the best introduction one could have to Judy garland because Saad as a kid and many times sense and I don't know. Oh that a place to her strengths now that I've seen obviously over the rainbow is a central piece of focus and made her you know center to another level level of notoriety and fame but the character I don't think is sort of a passive character could be a little whiny and I held off on Garland for a while thinking meanwhile that's Judy Garland and then I think it was producers. Sam's pushing of Easter parade a couple of years ago. That was my first non wizard Judy Garland film the One with Fred Astaire and I was just completely shocked. At what a great president. She wasn't that so very different and then you're right. It was the Manelli marathon that really gave me a good sense of what she could do as well as catching up with nineteen fifty four is a star is born when the remake came out so yeah than really immersing myself men for this list. I in her stuff and surprise surprise Adam She's really something yeah. Check out the big brain on Josh. He's done all his homework. Shoot down the conclusion Asian. Is that needs to know about you the wizard of Oz I was. I'm a crammer like Adam. I'm doing the most I could watch the catch up on stuff. I hadn't seen in years years and years and stuff. I I knew I liked but hadn't seen in a long long time and just the the real pleasure of watching shing concentrated way of you know a little a little bit here and there for a couple of days of somebody who is just such an astounding triple threat who did did the top of the top of the heap and I mean I mean she. It's it's there's a handful of other. Mgm Stars Gene Kelly Fred mystere and then you know one or two others but it's it's Kelly astaire in Garland and then there's everybody else and that and that's when you think about what that actually means and when you talk about the work they did together with the garlanded with Kellyanne garlanded with a stereo. It's just you know. I don't have the same love for Easter parade that you do Josh but you know the talent level is just kind of astonishing though and it's just sort of a I don't know I don't I can't even be cynical about how what what a what a strong response. I had just kind of like just sort of like soaking up the talent because it's not somebody I grew up with loving from age eight on on you know I mean I mean I. I wasn't really a wizard of Oz annual viewer at that age you know because if the marksmen does Ron I was mark of course they were the Marx brothers. Those were not in the was it of is you know I would've actually loved to see him as ten minutes but the radar now jokes aside Josh I do think it's fair to say and this May bear out as we get into our picks that we've discovered there are depths to judy. Garland is a performer that probably aren't fully on display away in the wizard of Oz. So why don't we go ahead and jump into those picks we are going to devote this show to our top five. Judy garland moments and we're going to start it off with an an expert voicemail a guest opinion here from a previous contributor to the show does Ray Garcia Michael. You put us in touch with desert initially. She Played Madeleine Colin in Damian Chazelle debut film Guide Madeline on a park bench. She's currently an associate professor of Latin American Latino and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth and if you're a longtime listener the show you'll recall that she joined us for our top five musical numbers back in two thousand sixteen that was a tie in with our review of Damian Chazelle la La land and she's got a great pick for her favorite Judy Garland. Hi this is Deborah Garcia leaving a message for the Judy Garland show show if I had to choose my favorites judy moments which is indeed a tough task it would have to be rather obvious choice. I'm afraid of the have yourself Merry Little Christmas Song in Navy in Saint Louis. Your saw aw little let your heart the next year. Oh it's it's really an anomaly in musicals of that era in the sense that it is a song that is quite dark. It's a moment that's quite dark. even rather kind of foreboding it's Judy of course in her character esther trying to console her younger sister sure as they prepare to leave St Louis and moved to New York. The lyrics of course are storied lyrics. Now we know that there were at least two different versions of lyrics. The first is one being much darker than the first and it's it's something that quite rare for Hollywood musicals of the period to delve into such dark seems uh-huh change and family separation and perhaps separation is eternal and even though she's trying to comfort her little sister to D- it's clear that esther has her own doubts about what is about to happen and we hear that I think in in Judy Garland's voice voice up here. She's a masterful singer so we hear both the kind of conviction and hopefulness times that things will work out all right and then at other moments I think including the very very end of the song is she seeing those last final words we hear that there is some doubt there on her part some day soon you who beat him and and also just say that that for me you know that song has always been a kind of touch tone in my life something that has helped me kind of mark the various listen turns of my journey's first away from home three thousand miles away to college again leaving a college that I came to love and considering home and embarking on a new career and then to of course marriage and and having a kid and every year I revisit is it that film and that song and it helps me to kind of chart where I've been but also to help me brace myself for the future. Thanks
