"May I speak with you? Yeah. You can blow them out. Whoo. What's up? Can the prototype do the sepsis test? No. We're still pretty far away. Well, why is why isn't everyone working? We just taking a break. You know we routinely put in 12 hour days. What is that? It's for my daughter, she. It was broken, so I was just tinkering with it at lunchtime. Your daughter plays with that? What does she do with it? She begs things. Why doesn't she use a real oven? Because real ovens are dangerous for kids. He's getting us a meeting. Get no partis. And you need to run your team 24 hours a day in shifts and work does not stop until we run a successful test. You want me to ask people to work 24 hours a day. You know, Elizabeth, they have families. They have lives. They'll burn out real quick. But people are replaceable. If you can't do this, I'm gonna start firing people. And get that out of here. Okay, okay. So again, this is like, this could be written to be so funny, which is her being like, why does someone have this oven? And you're like, can't they? But it her power position in that scene allows it to be like, if you are from admits perspective, if you're now like, I am uncomfortable and I don't know what I'm allowed to say in this and you don't know how to feel and you can see how power changes a person, power changes both how she approaches being like this and how people have to respond to her. I'm like, I'm so glad that you picked out that joke. It's like one of my, I love that moment. To me, that the easy bake oven joke is so sad. I kept it in. There were many times when we were trying to cut the script down a lot. And comedy is the first thing to go when you're putting comedy and drama, but I felt like after that scene with our dad, I love that moment because it's really, I think, heartbreaking, but also funny and that's what I, you know, that's what I really love to write and because it's really a joke about how she doesn't understand what it is like to be a child or to be or to have a father who plays with you. But it's also her stepping into her power and actually the walking into the room with them singing happy birthday is based on me because there are many moments in new girl when I would be just my feet were on fire and I would like hear happy birthday coming from the writer's room and that's why there was one horrible moment when I stopped the party. But yeah, I mean, so I was actually from my experience of just like that feeling of like don't you understand what I'm up against. And then having to kind of acknowledge the humanity of the people you're working with and step out of your own sort of stressful existence for a second and so yeah that section was like really kind of close to my heart. I never could kill the ants though. What the show does really gracefully is there's a feeling of something is going on with this person but not being like this is it and I'm sure there were conversations I'd like to understand what the conversations were like because I imagine some people are entering the room being like she's on the spectrum. She's a sociopath. We need the show to give that but also any Andrew give them especially early on in the show and then the show is just about a person who has this. Opposed to whatever just like being with this person and trying to see the parts that make sense and don't make sense. Can you talk about what those conversations were like? Yeah, I mean, I just pretty early on made a decision that I wasn't going to tell the story of a young woman who had no feelings because I think maybe that could work for a movie, but for an 8 episode limited series. I needed the audience to hook in with her. I needed the audience to feel for her and you know I think all of this is a dramatization and so it's sort of hard to talk about a real person who have never met and have never spoken to, but the way I saw the story was that this is a character really changes a lot over the course of the story, not somebody who kind of sets out to commit fraud and quote unquote sociopath. I don't know what a lot of those words actually mean. And so I think I just really was like, you know, that's not good for storytelling. It's not good to go into a story like this with an agenda. I think the reason that you're dramatizing something is to open up the conversation about it to present all of the kind of richness of it, the complexity of it, and then allow the audience to take from that different things. I think if I had gone into it being like, I'm going to prove that this character is sociopath. I don't think that it would have worked, you know? And I think people use those words all the time and sort of don't really know what they mean. But I did get into a little bit of an argument with my friends husband who is a psychiatrist and he was like really getting into it with me and I was like, I'm not telling that story. So I think yeah, but there was a lot of conversations about that. And there are a lot of conversations about the comedy in the show as well. Hulu Hulu was sort of constantly to their credit, but constantly kind of pushing back on me a little bit of not letting things get to too silly. I think they use the word goofy in the notes call and it just like children to my core. I'm so glad that you have the same reaction to that. So it's terrifying. There's a word goofy and quirky. I have a piece. Yeah, I wonder why. Yeah, but it's just like, but I mean, there were definitely moments in Scripps where we pulled back from the comedy. Can you think of an example? Yeah, I mean, well, there was a whole section that we cut out that we actually shot and cut out. When Don Lucas comes to visit the labs for the first time, there's this sort of crazy sequence where they're running around, getting the machine ready. And of course, in new girl, that's my bread and butter. And I was so excited to write that and shoot it and it was like double the length and there was a scene where there was a scene where Elizabeth's assistant runs into the lab and she's like, I need to make copy the coffee machines broken. Who's an engineer? And everyone raises their hand and then they run in and then it's like all these engineers trying to fix a coffee machine and she's like, forget the coffee, you know? It was a lot of that. And then when we started watching it, we were like, oh, this is totally, you know, this is just tonally to too crazy. And I also have to really Michael showalter who directed the first four episodes has that has that sense of tone in a great way. I think that if there's one scene that I would point to that shows how you approach this, this sort of can define how you approach this, that essentially the scene where she tries out the voice. The patient's know that they're participating in a trial. Go back in there, admit. Go back in their Edmond. Go back in there and go back in their admin. This is an inspiring step forward. It inspiring step forward. And inspiring me to step forward..

"Pierre comes from a philanthropic old money family in France and wants his family's charitable foundation to collaborate with Mali. Although he intends to keep it strictly business, there is an undeniable connection between Jean Pierre and Molly. With no title for the show yet, you know, there is no telling when this is going to start streaming. It must be kind of weird to have a movie or TV series produced about you while you're still around to watch it. Weird for guys like the head of one of the greatest flameouts Silicon Valley has seen in a while and weird for just a guy trying to get his life together for a few decades. Actor Jared Leto has some advice for WeWork founder Adam Neumann, don't watch the Apple TV plus show where an actor Jared Leto plays. We work founder Adam Neumann. I guess the actor thinks the founder might not like it. I more has the start of we crashed, offering that advice, the piece as we crash tells the story of Adam Newman and the company he founded, we work, I'm more as Newman saying that Leto offered that advice. Newman spoke this week at The New York Times deal book online summit. It was there that he said that Leto told him that he shouldn't watch the show, although he didn't go into detail as to why. Hey, I wonder if apple's description of the show has any insight. Well, it says we crashed will follow the agreed filled rise and inevitable fall of WeWork, one of the world's most valuable startups and the narcissists whose chaotic love made it all possible. Well now, who wouldn't want to watch that? And finally, today, on a different part of the spectrum, another piece from my Moore says the real-life patient depicted in the Apple TV plus series, this ring next door has talked about the show. And he is apparently gotten no problem with it. I'm sure you remember the basic plot, guy goes to CS psychiatrist, psychiatrist eventually takes over that guy's life. The guy has no problem seeing that on TV, it seems. In fairness, he's already heard it as a podcast. Anyway, he knows the podcast is out there. In fact, I'm more working from a story in The Guardian about podcasts being turned into TV. They spoke with the patient, Martin, Marty, markowitz, played in the television series by welfare. For his part, says The Guardian, the shrink next door's Marty markowitz seems over the moon and having his life turned into a TV show, Paul Rudd Will Ferrell and director Michael showalter flew out from California to spend the day with myself, my sister, and Jonas Sarah, he says, this era is a Bloomberg journalist who wrote what became the podcast on which the TV series is based. Then they flew right back to California as markowitz there was no joking around. They just peppered me with a million questions. It's unclear whether markowitz is actually seeing the finished product. If not, he can watch along with the rest of us..

Knowing that jessica was going to be playing tammy yeah so just. She owns the property. She's been involved developing it for over ten years. Wow and She had kind of started down another avenue.

Prosthetics originally kazuhiro. Cg was going to do. The makeup and a causey was no longer available for the show. So it came to greg and myself To decide if we wanted to make it happen Which we both did. I mean we knew it was a huge challenge.

Even months and months and months later people are still talking about the still see pop up on twitter and one line from it people just as else still. Hopefully they Check out our old episodes but today this is a much different movie from from the mt man. We're going to talk about with the. Is it dami fe first thing before we start getting into some puzzle. Pieces was this big heavily. Awaited movie for you. That's a bit of a complicated question. Actually yes and no I grew up in a household. My parents watched jim. And tammy faye's programmed. Pto club religiously every day it was like literally religiously or religiously as a lot. Yes actually the first real vacation. I remember when i was maybe four or five years old Was going to their Theme park that they had bill. Wow i believe it was in north carolina. Don't remember a whole lot. I remember going. I remember my parents being super excited about it having a christian beating park To go to and vacation at so. I grew up very familiar with You know the real. Jim and tammy faye at least from their public personas on on television. Sure so yeah i. I was kind of interested in seeing what what the filmmakers would do in in telling their story It's not usually the type of bill might gravitates you normally but Yeah it was. It was a very interesting watch. Yeah i wasn't sure going into this. Because you know i. I love michael showalter who directed this and mostly for very off the wall. Wacky comedy stuff like wet hot american summer the state and some of the stuff that he was involved with over the years so i really wasn't sure the tone was going to be here going into if it was going to be just a total farce. Just you know completely making fun of these characters these people or if it was going to kind of you know try to tell their story but with some humor added into it or or where exactly it was going to go so that was definitely a question. I had going into testing which Which turns out mostly. I think you know we'll get into this as we're going through pieces and what we thought of the movie but I think mostly it's a performance show pieces. What i think is what we ended up. Ultimately i agree. Jessica chastain is amazing. I think in. And i think andrew garfield actually did really bang-up job to yeah absolutely and i. I really like him a lot. He has been in some really interesting rolls over the last couple of years and Yeah i mean jessica chastain is like that's the standout for sure but i think he's great in this as well but you know we will. We will lay on the praise to those two along the way through the conversation Let's start getting into some puzzle. Pieces here what do you have your first piece. My first piece. And i realized when i was writing out my notes for this i think i actually put them in basically chronological order. So i'm going all the way back to citizen gate okay. I i'm not sure how directly influenced the film other them. You know it's it's been a building block for hundreds of thousands of films over the years. just A pillar at now of of hollywood But there was You know a couple of things. The the story being told of of someone who had rated This giant empire and ultimately is left kind of unfulfilled. At the end i think is is similar in tone At and there was also especially in one scene in the baker's home At all is about two thirds of the way through the film Some of the camera angles chew walter. Used reminded me of Camera angles that orson welles and used and Citizen kane is that slayton tilting It just makes you feel like things are a little off You know in this enormous mansion. you know. The the the baker's had they were living in you know absolutely beautiful but just telling the camera a little bit gives you that Feeling of unease shore that that sense even though everything is so like seemingly perfect did huge and beautiful that it. But it's off. Kill exactly exactly so that really just popped out to me. I should be better about Talking about some of the mechanics of filmmaking like camera angles and whatnot But it's. It's not something i i. I usually focus on story more Especially when i'm.

That eventually brought the couple to ruin and also robbed countless regular working people of their hard earned money in the nineteen eighties. Tammy faye and jim baker husband and wife chipmunks united in the service of the lord ruled the christian television airwaves with their cheesy but unapologetically celebratory show designed to fund their ever-growing p. t. l. club operation folksy apple faced. Jim spreads the word of god like margarine greasing the wheels to entice the folks at home to call in with their donations. Tammy faye with her. Helium speaking voice and peppy gospel tune belting not to mention her clown on the town makeup which became more garish and extreme as the duo became richer was lively and sugary and fun to mock of all the eighties tv evangelists among them pat robertson and moral majority leader. Jerry falwell both of whom played roles in the baker's rise and fall jim and tammy faye seemed the most benign if you could apply that word to any peddler of rigid religious ideologies. Who's also in love with the almighty dollar. These two certainly seem harmless at the start of the eyes of tammy faye. The movie follows the baker's pious trail from their meet cute in bible college through the early years of their marriage in which they took to. The road is traveling preachers to their first taste of success as the hosts of a tv show that used puppets to teach kids. About god's love andrew garfield plays jim baker as an. Aw shucks charmer.

The puppet idea a hint that everything they built might have begun with her chastain plays. Tammy faye with a feral eagerness. That's poignant until it turns greeting in the movies early scenes she's a saucy seductress. A good girl who wants to have fun within the bounds of holy matrimony of course her eyes are wide. And unblinking like a dulls. Her skin is brushed with porcelain innocence. This is a far cry. From the older tammy faye we see in the movies.

"Or did you do hello mother. This is jim baker. My husband jessica chastain there as tammy faye bakker in the eyes of tammy faye which opens nationwide this weekend. Andrew garfield co stars as jim baker. Tammy's husband who people of a certain age like us josh. Remember as one of the most prominent televangelists of nineteen eighty and nineteen eighty. Nine baker was sentenced to forty five years in prison for fraud. This movie is directed by michael showalter. Who made the very good two. Seventeen rom com. The big sick. The eyes of tammy faye came up a couple of weeks ago. During our fall movie preview. You have seen the movie and as i alluded to. We lived through the eighties. The bakers were inescapable in popular culture. At seem does the movie convinced that there is more there was more to jim. Tammy faye than we remember or what we saw in parodies from the time i mean it had to for me because my only point of reference was jan hooks portraying. Tammy faye bakker. On saturday night. Live visiting the church lady. I think phil hartmann was was jim baker. Actually so i didn't really know much beyond that of the story. I mean would have been a little kid at that time. And so yeah this was interesting to get some of the background info a lot of it drawn from the two thousand or two thousand two documentary of the same name. The eyes of tammy faye haven't seen that one. But from what. I understand both at end this i can attest to very much rehabilitation projects. You know to to say that there was more and of course there was more to to this woman than what we saw on saturday night. Live or in news. Reports jessica chastain as tammy faye is going to make you believe that no matter what. She is the powerhouse force in this film. The reason why i liked it. I think overall as a movie. It's it's a little strange. It's both really obvious like hitting its themes and points very underlying them like she on like her makeup his underlying. You know but at the same time it's also kind of thinly developed. There are things we wish. It explored further or more deeply. So the material isn't great. Here but chastain is tammy faye does something. It's curious adam you you know. I've talked about this. How this is the sort of performance that i normally would bristle at where it's it's it's really big. It's an actor going through a physical transformation. It's geared for oscar attention right but but why it works here is because that all lines up from what i understand of the real life. Tammy faye bakker this. This is someone who had a peppy. Cheerful bright public presents the entire movie. Adopts that and chastain does to. This is almost like you're you're experiencing this movie. What it would have been like to live through the fame and the failure of this ministry through her is how she would have seen it and how she sees herself. So it's really a galvanizing performance. I couldn't help but admire at the end. I even started thinking that it it kind of reminded me of. We've been going through a various sort of loose joan crawford marathon at home. Maybe you know movie every month or so here with the family and it did remind me of the ways crawford could kind of just takeover a film that dared caster and a lot of times. These were films about women who were at their wit's ends or or facing societal expectations that they wanted to upend and so it was interesting to see chastain. Do something similar here just grabbing this movie by the throat giving it a fierceness that kind of aligned with what you understand tammy faye bakker might have had underneath all that niceness that she presented so so. I think it's definitely worth seeing for chest pains performance which i think is probably what intrigued both of us about the project to begin with. I hope to catch up with it soon. The of tammy faye opens wide this weekend next week on film spotting we kick off our twenty twenty one who've review last year. It was christopher nolan. This year we consider the entire filmography of new zealand director. Jane campion with a series devoted to all eight of her feature films including her latest the power of the dog which comes theaters late november and then to net flicks in december. So that was really the impetus besides for me wanting to catch up with these films. Most of them blind spots for me. It seemed to set us up well to consider her new film which has gotten all sorts of acclaim coming out of various film festivals including benedict. Cumberbatch is performance. Our first campion will be sweetie from nineteen thousand nine which is one of those blind spot for me. I know it's not a blind spot for you. It's made a least one or two top five louis over the years including i recall top-five female directed debuts. I think you had it at number five. So you must think sweetie is a pretty good start absolutely. I think i probably went on a bit of a campion kick after the piano. I'm trying to remember when i would have. I seen it. It definitely would not have been in eighty nine. So that's probably when. I first saw it but cannot wait to revisit it. As part of this who've view sweetie is currently available. I love the way you say that. On the criterion channel and available for digital rental more information about the campion oeuvre view is film spotting dot net slash campion. Also next week we prepare ourselves. Vialli some fun josh. We prepare ourselves for the end of the daniel. Craig bond era by revisiting. His first outing as 007. Two thousand six's casino royale for its fifteenth anniversary. You telling me you don't consider the card counter fun. i'm saying. It's a little more grueling. Josh just just a little tougher sit. Maybe then casino royale. This also helps prepare us for daniel craig's fifth and final bond. No time to die coming out here in a couple of weeks. I've already done my homework. I was inspired to rewatch casino. Royale for the first time since two thousand six when it was reviewed here on the show by our recent film spotting family bonus content. Discussion of sean. Connery's second feature as bonn from russia with love. And i even then followed it up with quantum of solace which i now think. I was too hard on back when that came out. I'm all in on craig as bond you are and i've mentioned i just don't know how you could argue. There's a better bond at least a better bond than the one we get in two thousand six casino royale so i look forward to watching it again here in preparation for this discussion will see what you think of it. I mean i know you haven't revisited. Timothy dalton or pierce brosnan so. I don't know how you can be so presumptuous. Such claim craig bob until you do that homework. Adam yeah yeah. You got me there josh. That brings us to our latest deeply. Flawed film spotting pull. That is trademark. Don't worry it's registered. We couldn't help ourselves with daniel. Craig going into bond retirement. We had to join the cacophony of voices posing this question. Who should be the next bond now. Before we share the options we provided a few things. We consider him by we. I mean mostly our producer. Sam i think he spent about three days on this full question so tortured. Poor sam was so tortured and yet and yet for all the thinking that went into it he still got hit with all the accusations of who overlooked all the mistakes he made. That just comes with the territory. Sim sim knew that when he took the job that he would be in peril. Not unlike bond himself. So i we did go with all brits. It just seemed. It seemed like a bridge too far to me. Josh to be throwing an american into the mix as james bond call me. Call me a purist. Nobody wants that no. We did also try to keep age in mind. We're not going to see another bond movie for what three or four years. Most first-time bonds have been in their early. mid thirties. connery was thirty. Three craig was thirty. Eight roger moore sixty seven. I think the joke goes. We did however include a couple of actors in their early to mid forties so again flaws abound a name. We left off our list. Someone long disgust as perfect bond. Material interests elba. He turns fifty this year. No yeah we decided to old. Wow good for idris. Elba a just here on film spotting would james come after it's a beat our atlas. Yeah well you know that he will and that he certainly could so there were a lot. More considerations will jump ahead here to the options we gave you the idris elba less options we gave you for. Who should be the next bond josh. Those options are -rism ed..

"Just wanna love goupil. Devil's coming tammy. Can you talk about. Seton peter. Steve is a patient of aids. You need to get her under control. Built you at empire you an empire some people. They're just hurting so bad. And you just need to love them. Wanna put my arm around but my arms around you. Tammy faye based on the trailer. The movies directed by michael showalter who also directed the big sick. He's really going for it. He is leaning into the campy absurdity of televangelism of their personalities everything that surrounded their rise to fame and fortune and the inevitable subsequent fall watching it. Today i thought about i tanya and i think obviously this is going for even more blatant comedy and dark humor than that film did but it may be thinking that film because here. They're taking someone who has mostly been a non entity in the zeitgeist recently. And whenever she is mentioned it's as the butt of joke and they're telling her side of the story and not for nothing again at least based on the trailer. The movie is going to suggest that poor tammy faye was driven to all that excess by her quest to just earn her mother's pride and affection which she could never get so. It's pushing her. And you heard this a little bit in that plot summary. It's pushing her little bit as a rebel as an iconoclast someone who despite all the ways we can laugh at her challenged the lack of compassion. And the right wing politics exhibited by people like jerry. Falwell who's played in the movie. By vincent off rio. I don't know why i'm skeptical. Maybe it's just because of my skepticism of televangelism josh. We'll see how much i'm buying. The eyes of tammy faye when it comes to theaters on september seventeenth. And for what it's worth. I will put an asterisk in my question. I did discover today. That jessica chastain put out a follow up tweet after the big story broke hollywood reporter and everything that she claims she's done irreparable damage to her skin from wearing makeup took seven and a half hours every day to put on. She tweeted the makeup artist for the tammy faye film are the best in the business. Don't believe click bait headlines misinterpreting me. They just want you to open their links. My skin hasn't been ravaged by makeup. Jessica chastain says so my question is based on a fallacy much like the religious lives faith of jim and tammy faye bakker and we'll we'll see what i think of the film. I'm very relieved to hear that. About jessica chastain skin and i think that the fact she's involved suggests yes there's gotta be a couple of more layers than even the trailer suggests to the movie that she would take on apart like this and i'm just fascinated because it does seem so you know a different direction from what at least i think of as jessica chastain performance or character so you will see all right. My number one question for the fall movie season. is there a way to wipe my memory of dune. Before i see dune geneva news. Take on the frank herbert scifi novel. It's been hugely anticipated by me and by others for so long now. I mean to fill the gap. It seems at least from twitter. That a handful of people started reading the book for the first time and and they're loving it. This is one. This is what. I haven't made time for to read in advance atom but have seen some people doing that while they're waiting for dune to come out now. We covered the disastrous. And i know it has its fans too but the disastrous attempt by david lynch to make a movie from the material i think it was last year in our eight from eighty four series and it was fun to consider all the guns. Oh choices made there. We appreciate it a few elements as well. Some of lynch's contributions. but now. I really don't want any of that in my head when i watched the new dune because i really believe that villneuve deserves our sincere attention not camps snickers with this movie i mean his bladerunner twenty forty nine. That proved it to me. That was my number eight film of twenty seventeen. I think he knows what to do with Hetty sci-fi material both in terms of story and plot and with the visuals. Absolutely so i'm going to do my best. To set lynch's dune aside really glad we sought that finally scratch that off my blinds list. But i'd kinda like to have a little bit of amnesia there at least while. I'm watching this new dune which we are going to finally get on october twenty two. I just have one question. Yes will sting be wearing a thong. I mean now. Come on putting the image battle there. It's gonna be at least six weeks to purge that you're welcome. What's the time line. I think i've been travel. The shallow may is in it for dune. Great number one okay. Well i'm going a little bit more obscure. I'm going art house here to your mainstream pick of doon. My number one question is and this is a familiar formula for me in these previews usually i find a way to work. A question in that follows. These lines will bergman island be my favourite film of twenty one or of all time. This is the. I think we need a happen at some point of all these i don't and they never they've never made even my top ten so talk about your cur pursue patients. I am cursing these movies. But i have. I have a really good feeling about this. Josh mia hanson. Loves latest. Film has been on our radar since twenty nineteen..

Hey this is what i'm doing and you can love it or hate it but this is all doing. Yeah absolutely so. What do you got for pieces for this one because these kind of action movies are you know they tend to be almost doing the same thing but just a little bit different here and there but what do you think for. Yeah so a. I know how you sometimes you like to pick as a piece. I mean this also feels like it could have been a guy ritchie movie right. Sure so i picked that And then the two movies. I picked so the whole thing is like he's trying to get into jail right for whatever reason and that reminds me of another action movie where they were just relentless towards each other a pro and cellblock ninety nine which we both liked that movie right. Yeah yeah absolutely. I mean i like that movie right dave. I definitely definitely no. I liked that you like that movie that movie and then the reverse of that from the nineties an australian film. We might have mentioned before. Chopper where eric bana plays like the most deadly criminal in australia. He's in jail and everyone wants to kill him so he like does stuff like cut his own ears off so he doesn't have to face the inmates and everything of course what a what a good excuse to mention boss level. We love frank. Grillo go absolutely well if you're going to bring up. Boss level mentioned smoking aces. Just you know. Joe carnahan's back in his own perfect thing like exactly what he does best and he's just leaning right into it. I would also have brought up guy ritchie movies in general. I think you're absolutely right there. It does have that kind of feel to it the constant everybody fucking with each other kind of vibe but then the one piece that i think really fits here is assault on precinct. Thirteen john carpenter's seventies action classic. Taking place inside of a police station like breaking into a police station. So i just think that that would be a really clear influence here on what he's doing with this one nice so moving onto another movie. I'm really looking forward to. It's the eyes of tammy.

A mental health. I'm curious about whether it's more important to do this. Because you are the mother of two boys to and i know how you are about raising them to be men and boys but sensitive to their role in society and how they look at women absolutely. I felt like you know. I have a ten year old in eight-year-olds and i know you notice from your kids like puberty is. It's around the corner. And i am not prepared I've i've realized that i was not prepared in. I thought how do. I are myself with some tools. And how do i explore. What happened to me at those ages and really be honest about it. You know be honest about like being a sexual. Being young in early and being aware of things younger earlier on the internet is not making our job any easier. It's only making our job harder and it really felt me That this was something that i could do. Not just for myself but to become a better mom. It's become a better human and to understand sort of what the landscape is gonna look like for me and talking to my kids so i really got incredibly valuable tools To take forward. And that i wanna bring my community to me with all of my relationships at all talking about like you know boys. Are you know looking at their watch sports. They're also watching porn. Are we all uh clear on this one. This is happening. What's going on and had we get ahead of it. You know and not be shamed free about everything that's major because that to me is the most important thing is how do we talk about it without sigmund. Shame those with banks joining me here on the rich eisen. Show my body my podcast available on audible on july twenty ninth. I would be remissed before you go it. happy day.

Any idea what you're getting into when you stood up for that movie we wanted to make a cult classic because we were all obsessed with richard linklater and we were obsessed with Fast times original. High We wanted to make that. We thought like this is a coming of age story that could be a cult. Classic at i mean it was so called like four people saw it when it came out twenty years on. It isn't tactical classics. So we did accomplish the thing. I think that we all hoped we were going to do which is kind of amazing. When's the last time you thought the original. Yeah oh my gosh. i've seen pieces of it. I have not watched it. You know head to tail in a very long time. Indiana's inga bad. It's paul is bradley in his first movie. Man me and bradley our first movie. Yeah movie too. Yeah bradley. And i is our first movie better. That movie amy poehler holleran. But you know even jimmy garoppolo david pearson molly shannon. Who are all like names than it was. I remember we were making the movie. That all run list Think he'd been like a guest arm france a little bit but it wasn't like happening yet. He got to be on the cover interview magazine. And we we all got it. We like put pictures. We put the cover up like everywhere like the newer so happy and jealous excited at mike all the feelings. Like oh my god paul like you're making it you know and i remember he was like i think i think he went to asia to do like a consumable here. Something i wasn't even in english can't get a job and now he's power museum. It is let us so we could see. It was really fun to see it happening. Like then you know. Amy getting snl like just being able to root for people eighty miles. Susan the you know. He ended up being the head writer. Jimmy fallon for years so these guys were there. They were all not to mention david. Random michael showalter in michael ian black who were obviously icon especially new york because of Because of Everything they had done their sketch comedy and stellan the whole thing. So it's been overly fun. Ride wonder if you could even make that movie today. I hope so. I mean i think you can definitely make movies that feel guilty in exciting We're always. i'm always trying to discover really cool new people. I mean it was a bunch of unannounced anna kendrick. The only name the entire movie we cast around her and found a bunch of you know unlikely heroines. And i think that is possible. People love to discover new talent and they liked to root for underdogs in that is was at the heart of a hammer. Czar it's great. The timing was perfect controlled to plug the podcast is.

It should be in your feed a chance to have a conversation with creators of one of our favorite shows of the year. Hacksaw nice bookend to the talk. That you and i had on monday with gen stats. Lucia aniello yellow and paul w downs. So that's cool. Check it out. Listen to that and then did you talk about this apple trailer that just drop shrink next door. Sure yeah. I dig my coming to you. Is it turned. I guess these guys are really like the cable guy. Just because my initial sort of thought when you see paul rudd kathryn hahn and will ferrell in a show is dan. This is going to be funny and it seems to be set in like is so. It's based on a true story that set in the eighties. Yeah it said in the past And it is a true story. And i don't know if you have this experience but kaya earmuffs. I don't really listen to podcasts very often. So it's an interesting into who can in other cars. it interesting was a really weird pandemic strategy by you. It's an interesting cultural moment because we're about to have all these scripted versions of very popular. Podcast that may have actually been based on articles or things prior to that. I am completely ignorant of all of them. I don't know the street next door. I don't know dr death. I don't know i didn't watch tiger king in any form. Was that a podcast was just not not a podcast is a netflix show. No i think it was. Because i think the I think the upcoming peacock show is based on the podcast. I know that yeah i. I got all my tiger king. I'm good for the rest of my life yet. Joe exotic with the puck anyway. The point is. I don't know anything about it but it does seem to be sort of bizarre story but not necessarily a hard comedic one and you know trailers trailers but i thought it was a great one honestly thought it really sold a vibe and a mood and a compelling story and also captured i think the tone of what these guys are going for rudd seems to be on one which is cool And my bet rudd comes from like a pretty dramatic background in like for like most of the beginning of his grew like discharge the duties and neil abuse place. This is the most amazing ever. But i saw paul rudd in twelfth night or some other like shakespearean comedy at lincoln center where he just wear a loincloth in lounged on the stage Thing my wife liked it more than i did But that's that dude. But yeah he's he's a great actor. And i think the only thing i know about this is just in terms of like buzz is that they are going for. They're going. they're doing something different. This is not like their who directed. Show altered michael showalter late of the state and also directed. The is tammy faye movie that had a good trailer. Last went allow. Yeah what are your him all right. Let's do loki second episode. I have this is my my big note. Okay that i took down. Thank you for taking down a note. I mean already. What a bunch of chatty kathies. that's that's my of. Yeah i was. Just i think the show is is remains great. I still ride enough the fumes from last week i think taken together. These are two really good setup episodes. A do not really understand what's happening. I mean i enjoy the time branch stuff. And i really like. I find it very charming but it is essentially like my cafeteria lunch with andre with these guys sitting together and just sort of bantering back and forth. I've always sort of been wary of timeline. Multi-diverse stuff because. I just think it's an easy out to not have consequences to what happens in movies or shows and i think if you're gonna go distance of spending ten fifteen years building towards something like don't don't also get out of jail free card where you can just be like. That person didn't really die in the snap or that. Dan didn't really kill this person. So i have a little trepidation about some of the mccain's wait till you hear about comic books gonna struggle. I know but i despite my trepidation about that. I do think provides an interesting platform from which to discuss the meta qualities of these stories of like. Why is anyone do anything. And what's the point. Yeah i first off. i'm with you. I really enjoyed the episode and actually enjoyed it in a way. That surprised me because when it began i had i little low-key dagger sharpened being second episode. Itis because as it started. I was like okay. So we're going to redo the first episode again and we're gonna talk about talking about stuff instead of doing stuff and we're going to settle in to a longer story as opposed to you know something that's gonna have like the the the pace and energy of a movie and i was gonna say i was gonna begin to wonder if this is the struggle of this phase one of marvel on tv where they want to capture that lightning in a bottle or lightning in two hours. Flat that are movies but they're not entirely sure how to apportion it out. And then the second half of the episode went and it totally washed away those concerns because it had its own momentum. Its own sense of place and fun and steaks and did stuff. And i appreciated that very much and i continue to feel. This could always bite me. But i continue to feel that through two episodes. This is.

"michael showalter" Discussed on Piecing It Together Podcast
"Direction as well definitely definitely and then just really quickly. I'll add on these two last pieces. Which are both paul rudd. Movies took three. Paul rudd movies in this list. First of all is two thousand. Eleven our idiot brother about these three sisters. Who have this idiot brother who who is sweet. Just really well meaning well intentioned guy who's just kind of a goof you know and just kind of everything that goes on within the family and with with dealing with him and Jason segel's character is kind of goofy movie is obviously really helps for a family to have someone like that around so So i thought of that and also another movie that paul rudd got much smaller part in It's called the baxter. It's from two thousand and five not a lot of people saw. It's directed by michael showalter for a american summer and the state and all that And it's basically it's almost like a spoof of romantic comedies. In the way. But it's it's a romantic comedy about the guy who gets left at the altar or But know for the the lead in most romantic comedy. So it's kind of just a twist on that whole thing and so the the idea that this movie our friend i mean. We've got this this big dramatic story about this family going through this thing but it's really about the other guy the sweet kind of you know silly friend. Who is there to help them along. You know it's definitely not an exact one to one of what's going on here but just the fact that the movie is really about about that other person that is kind of the heart of the film is is what made me think of the baxter and also just like get in another paul rudd movie so i i'd never heard of it but now i'm intrigued. Seek it out and check that one. I love paul rudd. So i'll definitely is the best. So i will go through our list here of all the movies we just talked about. And then we'll get into some closing thoughts but are finished. Puzzle includes fifty fifty. I love you man. The upside eternal sunshine of the spotless. Mind the bucket list me and earl and the dying girl. The big sick. My sister's keeper our idiot brother and the baxter so obviously a lot of paul rudd but also a lot of movies that you know did deal with. Obviously the the central thing here. There is a person dying in. It is a very heavy thing but then we have these really sweet relationships that kind of helped the characters through and help us through at the inside because it's such a such a heavy movie otherwise but did you have any other thoughts about this that we didn't quite get to talking about the puzzle pieces. I mean i think. I think for me you kind of touched on on some of what. I was a lot of my thoughts about this one. But i think the central that yes. The central theme is friendship in in in this. You know dealing with with death and things like that. But i think looking at not just you know death in friendship but the amount of sacrifice that happens in this movie was something that really stuck out to me. A lot With you know the way that. Dan just uproots his whole life you know now. Yeah maybe he didn't think he had much of a life to start with because we get a scene where he's about the essentially kill himself as he goes out into the desert essentially which i thought was a really cool scene we got see gwendolyn christie in this. I thought that was great but stuff like that. You don't see eli in these kinds of movies. That's the side. You don't actually see like all the movies that i that i mentioned you. Don't get aside like that and i. That's something that i really liked about this. That they chose to go and it wasn't the person who's sick a lot of times when they do show stuff like that. It tends to be a person who is sick. There has those thoughts and it's not. It's it's the friend you know it's the guy who just doesn't have anything going on and now Stuff you know other stuff is going bad in his life. And i don't know i thought that was a really interesting and i thought that jason eagle did really fantastic job. Not just in the robot specifically in that in that sequence. Yeah he he's. He's kind of perfect for this character. Because you know he he's like you said he doesn't really have anything going on before he takes on this role within this family But he's not like He's not forcing myself and they're either he's not like he's just he's just a nice guy just seems like a really nice guy and he likes these people and he wants to take on this sacrifice and really help out. It's an interesting thing. And my my other thought that i wanted to bring up and this is a very maybe a strange thing. I don't know if it's a criticism or what it is exactly. I'm not sure how old you are. Josh. i'm forty thirty six thirty six. Okay so there's a little below me but this move is something interesting about these three main characters to me that it usually deal with a lot of movies about like you know people dealing with these kinds of issues you either get older people or you get like it's the teenager death movie the tears movie you know but these people being my age i felt the fell so i'm trying to think of the best way to put this but i could picture them if they weren't going through this they'd be on film twitter arguing about star wars or something late. They felt like they felt like kids. Basically yeah and i don't i don't know what it is about him calling myself a kid as well forty year old kid. But there's something about that. That i just found weird not in a bad way. Just just interesting and odd and something. I hadn't seen on screen before where where the the main characters are. These are almost like people out of kevin smith movie or something like that where they're not quite grown up. You know what i mean. And dealing with this majorly grownup life thing and i just think it's an interesting twist on that i agree When i realize that these characters were my age i was like. Oh okay. I mean obviously i know that you know jason segel in case you have like our older but like i didn't realize that Nicole is literally in the movie. Thirty six she dies right. Oh you know that kinda that kinda hit me Because yeah usually like you said it's old people like i mean i have the bucket list on here and that's old's your And you talked about a knee earl anger. And that's aren't they young kids your junior. Yeah yeah so and a lot of times. It's that is that's what you get from it so it is nice to see these Somewhat essent technically adults but yet who. Hey living the movie adult lifestyle. You know what what is portrayed in films as being an adult. It's a bit more realistic. In that way. I thought i. I like that quite a bit about it. Didn't thirty. six and.

"michael showalter" Discussed on MinddogTV Your Mind's Best Friend
"I definitely wonder how historically accurate this is about the culture of the time. It's hard to believe it was that open but madman kind of portrays it as that too. It's just like not a secret at all. If you were an executive your taste be banging secretary or at least some menial woman who worked at the company whether it's a secretary or you know receptionist or whatever she was but you're expected to be changed that was like part of the culture strains but not knowing while madman is an obvious influence. One of the other movies. I wanted to talk about was a little lighter in tone is called the baxter Which is obviously a reference to baxter which jack lemons character and It's with Michael showalter and He wrote directed it and The premise of the movie is that. There's always a guy in any one of these movies who's always left. You know like someone. There's marriages stopped at the alter. And who's the guy. What about the guy who's left at the altar for further actual couple so the baxter's about that guy and so In this this image here put together. Is shirley maclaine on the left and michelle williams. Who's the love interest in Baxter and her character name is Something like cece. Mills settled Sessile cc. Baxter she smells. She's obviously got the same haircut as shirley maclaine But the baxter's a little bit more lighthearted and just like michael showalter's other material that he's done like he worked on. He was in the state so he worked on with hot american summer So it's a little bit more parody and they came together which is a parody romantic comedies. But the the baxter is a much more gentle movie. In which as i said half parody half sincere romantic comedy in which. It's an interesting idea because the whole point is that michael showalter is a narrative black hole in that he is not charming and that's why he does not end up with The the woman of his dreams in that case played by elizabeth banks and ends up with michelle williams Because he doesn't see what's in front of him who someone who's more connected as opposed to you. Know the the hot blonde who you know. Who's it's always in any of these kinds of movies. It's your should be the hot blondes distraction but the the more mousy brunette israeli who you should be looking at in situations. It's kind of like half a parody of that But just like in the apartment His girlfriend shows much more interest in him once. He gets beaten up in fact. There's a in the apartment he gets. He gets punched in the nose. Are you doctor. Because are you okay. And he's like doesn't hurt a bit and in the baxter what happens is He gets There's a break dancing off between Michael showalter and justin throws refund as as Elizabeth banks ex-boyfriend and he accidentally gets kicked in the face. And then os with. Thanks oh no oh so sorry you got hurt and so there's all these interesting parallels so the baxter is in. Its own way what i was talking about before..
