Move because I still have another three and a half hour. You're three hours to go and then on top of that my first race I've ever been at which Daytona the first full insert race. I lost my radio forty five minutes into my student. I had no radio and I had no dash. We Hung Aletsch electrical issue where I lost my Dash Dunno year. I'm in like I'm counting gears.

I'M GONNA change my last question here. Walk me through what. It's like doing an endurance race. When you essentially have no idea what's going on other than what you see in front of you was there. Did they pull out one of those old school hip awards to update you or anything like that in Daytona? Really hard to see young where the pit lane is and where we're coming around to turn want. It's really far away from each other. So I mean every lap a Mike leaning over my my. Halo's my pet seeing they're waving seeing I'm GONNA get black flagged maybe they called up and Black Fag. Many come in but I was really just guessing out there and like little. Did I know the first forty five minutes? The race I was running with the leaders pace and I was sitting in p. six P. Seven when I started p twelve I passed six cars on the first lap so I was having a pushing the car really hard. They're worried about my tires falling off. Luckily I'm pretty good on the tires. This coming from a drifting background. I understand tires really well. But it was stressful. I mean my heart was like because an also like I don't know a hundred percent all the rules like right right when we have to drive drive through to get back on the lead lap of the GT cars. I was just guessing might well. Everyone else is doing this. I guess I'm doing it and it was a stress. I mean I got out of the car like I did. I did one pitstop too much because I didn't want to come in. I'm just guessing so then. My stint ended up being longer to change strategies and I got out of the car and I like did. The driver changes ban hopped over. The Wall took Muhammed often. I almost like passed out. Want it was hot as hell. Yeah and then.

I know of the rule book and it was just a lot a lot. Yeah that's even more impressive to bring the car home in in one piece after a couple hour stint so. Wrap it up with a really easy question here this year. We are building out the parlay a spotify playlist. If you were to add one song something you listen to before the race to get you in the zone. What Song is it Tim Montana particular's not one specific song. But only let me look at my playlists workouts. Let's see here Jim Montana Hillbilly rich. All right we're going to add it to the list. That is I. I'm guessing it's a country song. Ads country all right so we have. We have a very eclectic list so far. I think we have some wrap some pop and now some countries. So we're going. We're going all a full spectrum in the circuit so far so thank you for the addition and thank you for the time this afternoon.

So to kick things off Jennifer could he please share a little bit about your background, and what led you to working between the for profit corporate in such enterprise sectors. Thanks. I'm working on the state of quite a long time and increasingly sore just named her number of constantly trying to reach out to on this to cope roots just for an awareness on then a friend of mine was what came the corporate sector in finance. She complained to me said, you know, what I had a pot of money that I would try to give away actually found it really odd earned money too. I just actually heard that a few times from different culprits, where they actually had resources have provided that they found it really hard to find has away to and I just thought this change in was just contradiction vices eating something wanting to connected, and then not being able to reach out to each other. So that was really the Genesis of the resonate insulting modal baggage as fourteen of his late interrupted quarter of neurosis aside. And really kind of landed down as consulting model way. Just kind of reaching out to his reaching in Jesus seeing how we can match them together that's been quite a journey because I went through social enterprise incubated program in Brisbane two dozen fourteen tested model, and it really kind of lately different service mos- to make that work to your out wet valleys landing for vice Ngoga coporate to make that an affordable service infested. Have you been projects that you wanna shed run through resonant? Now, we have a couple of products. I guess one is what chapel we cover my on all marathon. In other words, that some people might use us kind of done in a day modal, truly six corporate set a time hole that my have Edyta cheeky to unity, and that's really what is a laugh model when we bring problem. Into before dream. Co-prince use the Coker brains of so. Over creative raise Michael reprint of the solution in send that racial implement that has great effect. But as you can imagine kind of limiting packed. Often the NGO is left with a motive worked do what shawl? So another thing we went on his moral and entering motto where we'll do a similar kind of scoping project that my last day then match over toll professional that NGO to kind of checking and fuller mouse times three maybe ever. And sorry just kind of allows the beat of follow up or. Kind of continued relationship over we also just do mentoring. So short entering matching miscellaneous this mental social internet to help them brings doom. In about business model and health instead of new networks and resources. So this is quite a few is actually that we found worked is it three nasty, Jim. So working in the corporate sector have you noticed any trends we net corporate sector when it comes to running ethically in committing tackling social environmental issues. Fina. Really interesting journey learning about cobras because I don't I don't come from a covert background and senior serving like a real reduction of the geez framework of thinking about impact of his online of saying -bility programs social programs ways of thinking of the nation nation in how that went work not becomes a real shit language between them. Nothing that really bikes grass in each other. About not becomes criteria matching would shed goals. On the sandy. Finding companies reaching out more to find out that proclaiming in Cobra volunteering in how to this lady programs, and that's a real positive resonate away. With no. Yeah. If a global trend, really, I think. Ten years ago relate was legal provider. That was very well nine street that was developed increasingly seeing events and Audi Colson compensation topics from services, another the state is really kind of inquiry like one. Volunteering. I think just sustainable businesses. I think since he. Yes. As so remarks what ten years is very much. Mine's whether they like it or not. To think a how we how we the hiding sustainably in a way to us. We not gonna face another. Yes.

Lace mints always seen is a fan. What rights then again that comes back to in bedding the St. jeez. Into a lot of language. Yeah. Absolutely. So you got a lot of experience. Jennifer in developing creating partnerships says have you go about approaching new partnerships, and what do you think of the case to successful clever rations? That's really good question. And it can be really really hard because you can imagine the culture of the COPA sector in the north of sixty Kennedy, so divergent ways so real punish it takes a lot of lot of hard work. A scene at work. Situations. I think I keys have real champions and drivers of really on the ship and that really has to come from the down. So when a c really grabs it when a senior pondering the phone really earns it than that makes it cheerful. Lot of people's any a nice say that because often Wednesday, a corporate sustainability, COPA social responsibilities stock, member employees.

"We never do that those guys and not to mention I mean, you're going to have something good at the end if you can if you can last throughout that that amount of time, but. Wallet. Probably seems cool. A lot of times in the documentary. Whatever our half or two hours. It could be real taxing. I think to hang around with the mar shards and the Mike shanks as well. Right. For as long as it would take to make that movie, but I highly respect that movie and to be able to pull that off. Yeah. Good woman, we walk out of a bad movie. Bail. I have I say which one the last one that I walked out of I can't remember. But I have definitely walked out of a movie where I was born. Here's a lot is. That's is as much on me as that movie. Just because my attention span is right on that. Just it just can't do it. All right and finally movie going one on one what are your and you probably don't get out to theater at ton anymore like most grown adults with kids. But what's your what's your movie ritual? Where do you go? What do you eat movie ritual? Now is we go to while? There are the I'm max screen that you can lay down in and safe Phipps or whatever sure we still like to go to Tara. Oh, yeah. Jenny. And I will go to Tara and can get drinks now, adult drinks. Yes. Terra everyone is the I guess sort of long standing art house theater in Atlanta that. You will always no matter. What our ages? You will always be the youngest person, the Tara, right? That's right. Which is great. They show movies that the seventy five year olds of Atlanta love to go. See I can't generally. And they do. Well, they'll they'll have those the what she said the art the art films that come back around. Call me by your name. I think is a last. Yeah. Over there. Now again, that's over there. I mean, we've seen other movies on those, you know, the lay down. At this age, the lay down theaters very dangerous 'cause call the lay down go night night. Yeah, we don't we don't go to those either the one like the big recliners. Yes. Every now. And then, but I I go to Emily, and I'll get out to movies together that much anymore. How can you? Yeah. Do matinees. Yeah. By myself now. But you also can you can stream those right at home. It's kind of there's an aspect this kind of a little bit of. I mean, there's convenience. Yeah. But I will say like I don't wanna be those that snob. It's like you really seen the theater, but I saw Roma in the theater saw Rome at home, and it was two very different experiences. I'm sure I saw Roma at home. Yeah. And I said oh shit. This. When the theater. Yeah. It made a big difference for that movie. But still great. All right. Thanks, buddy. Thank you. It's good Good stuff. stuff. All right, everyone. I hope you enjoyed that. I was laughing with Mike afterward. Like, hey bet. There's about maybe two hundred movie Crushers who've actually seen Vernon Florida. And that may be the best hour and a half of their week was talking about it. And I tried to not just sit around and tell jokes and do character voices and repeat lines, which is what we've always done with this movie. But I think we had a good discussion about it and looked at it through a bit of a different lens here in our late middle age. And every time I see that movie. It's something new jumps out at me and speaks to me a little bit differently. I think Mike felt the same way. So there's a lot of fun talking with my good friend about that great film. And who we did a Justice. If you have not seen burn in Florida, go check it out. It's fifty five minutes long, and it's just some of the purest documentary in its most pure form that you'll see..
"mike shanks" Discussed on The Next Picture Show
"But do they know they're scamming them? I think is the central question, you know, like, you know, to kind of rephrase your question from earlier earlier at what point did they become aware that this wasn't working boy short does become aware. Mentally and says we we can't do this anymore. This. I wouldn't. I wouldn't camera. I don't mean him. No, billy. I billy. I'm not sure it's a mystery. And unfortunately, he's he's not in this film. And then he's super cagey in not forthcoming at all in the other firefighters, so we can't really know what was going through to wonder pathology to it at some point. That's just the way he was sort of leading was like, I really want passive news. I mean like early that early seen in fire where with the pilot and the pilot is like like I've spent I spent a night or two on this island. Talking about the Google flights. Oh, so brilliant, great Christmas moment. But but just where he's like you need to stop thinking about models and start thinking about toilets. There's there's a lot of practical concerns that Billy McFarland doesn't have time for and just sort of magically thinks will work themselves out somehow even all the way to the day. And maybe you get the cold reality. You have a bunch of people on Iraq, and the tents and nothing else like very influence or level version of Lord of the fly seems breakout. Everyone's there with the rainstorm that has the night before it was all the mattresses and oh my God. What a what a scene that must've been? I mean, it does feel like a little bit of an echo of the very beginning of American movie when we're still sort of in the northwestern part of the of the setup, and there's like a couple of production meetings, and Mark is like laying out his grand plan, you know, like black and white 35-millimeter whatever someone in the room asks about five. Financing and you can just see like the little hiccup in his brain. And he's like, yeah. And then just continues on without like even addressing you know. And so that sort of unwillingness to engage with the practicalities of the stream like Mark eventually does I think a little more over the course of the movie do that in the making of Kovin? But at the outset he is coming at from a dreamer perspective, not a practical perspective for sure. One thing. This is a this is a point of contrast between the two movies is just the style of it the style of them. I mean, they as I mentioned in the intro American movies much more done verite style over over a long period of months, whereas fire is a very compact more journalistic way of telling stories, so so I guess Amaechi to hear your thoughts on those contrasting styles. And then where maybe where you can find Christmas in that. I think the one thing they have in common kind of thread throughout his documentary films. At least he's he's very good. At interviews. He just from from American the on. I mean, not necessarily that much draw Mark borsch, art out. But he asked good questions. He gets a good stories and like in films like collapse in Gemini, Andy, the great beyond and this. He's just good at getting people on camera talking like, for instance. I'm Andy king, you know, whatever lessons he has to tell this very. Story. He's Cleveland put it eased by Smith and his team that he can you can you can share you can talk, you know. And that's how they have in common. Yeah. I guess I would love to see verite account of of the fire festival as well. Not not being a possibility. I think this is a very smart alternate approach another similarity before I go into contrast is that I think both films demonstrate an awareness of the need for pay off. And like things that you expect to see and want to see throughout the movie, and you get like mentioned it with the getting to see the it's all right? It's okay. There's more likely you have to show us the end result of that, you know, and just like in fire, you have to show us the cheese sandwich. You know, like there's an awareness of the things that we as an audience want to see as a result of what we've been seeing that. I think is is demonstrated in both films as for contrast fire is just so much glossier in a lot of that is obviously and our. Cable footage, but also in the talking head segments the way that they are staged like we talked about American movie being a mid western film. And a lot of that to me is how much of the talking heads are just filmed like in people's living rooms and their barcalounger 's or with their like, kitschy decor, or whatever, you know, it just makes them feel like real people in a moment. Whereas the talking heads and fire, you know, they're presented and kind of sterile modern office spaces for the most part, you know, in they are looking back on something, you know, they're reminiscing. And that's not really what's happening in American movie. They're not looking back on an event the way that the interviewees in fire are looking back on it events. So interviews play out a little different. Oh, for sure for sure. One thing. I will say inter another connection, I guess between a lot of Christmas work has to do with labor talked about a little bit with American job American movie the jobs at my shirt holds down. And then and then what I think is the prevailing theme here about all the hard work that people didn't good faith make this festival happen. Which is the story. We didn't get we did not definitely do not get that story on social media, which is what allowed us to enjoy the collapse that festival without feeling residual residual guilt. JR gets driven off the island, which is kind of his right hand, man. You know, the the kept getting him more and more laborers. And then once everyone left the island people are like pounding down his door wanting to get paid. No. And he's like, I just left the island. King talks about like ducking down someone's car. I mean, just getting out of that space without being mauled the equivalent of the actor who kept getting heads fashioned into the cabinet just really there for this guy's dream. Will you know, willing to go all the way and just getting punished for it? Who's the Mike Shanka this one the what his his little right hand, man? Oh, the guys who's like guess who's super high strong and? Like early in the he's like you see most of them in the promotional part of it. He says like shake, but it's been interesting distance kind of get a sense of this is the scope of Smith's career types of films that he he's done and he'd never has done anything like American movie again. And even though he's worked in the documentary realm. I think he's I think just the commitment that takes to spend that much time with somebody in develop film like he did with American movie. It was something he doesn't have the bandwidth anymore. And so he's taking taking on a lot of projects where he can do a more journalistic style, while still pursuing the things that interest him, which are pretty vivid characters, I recommend collapse and say last podcast, which I love, and you mentioned Jimmy the great beyond which is absolutely fascinating. And then of course, here boy shot and Billy McFarland. So he's really a good good sense of. Like, a single person is like a driving forces really gonna take you through a movie, that's kind of it. Yeah. I mean is very slick, and I think it needs to be. I mean, it is what it is. I mean, I don't think I don't know if there's another way of approaching it, but it is unusual for this kind of a film to be dropped by Christmas. That surprising. But maybe I should be surprised. He does a lot of commercials to and those look a lot different than American movies. While one thing these two films have in common is drinking. Partying boozing boozing. And how the how that gets in the way of being productive. So I think the iconic shot Bill is like Billy McFarland passed out on the beach. Like, he's our leader. Get so sleepy. Yeah. That's what it is. But I mean like so much of the first act of fire is given over to the filming of that ad and the the big party and how Billy McFarland job rule seem to envision it. As a party that just happened to be filmed. And you know, but the you have the director guy talking about how like there was no shot list. There was no one directing is seeing. It was just like point cameras at us while we have an amazing time. And so there just seems to be this philosophy of have a great time. And everyone else will have a great time and everything will work out that is behind the whole conception of fire fest, and that is dumb in a little a little dark, and I think it's a little dark in American movie too. I mean, it's very much. It's very much back rounded, I think there's definitely some comments from Mark's family about his drinking. There's obviously the stuff with Mike shank and talking about how he and Mark light bonded over drinking vodka together. You know, it's vodka. But. But American movie doesn't like I think try and make the case that marks drinking is like preventing him from seeing his dreams, but it suggests maybe an element. And similarly, I don't think that Billy McFarland partying drinking passing out on the beach is the primary reason that fire fest didn't work out. But it does speak to one issue that is in the mix. I think before in. There's that sense of just he just does not have the patience to see something this complicated through. Yeah. It's not is interest in. Maybe you could see the roots of the trouble with the festival itself in the fact that they went off to shoot these this promotion without a shot list without giving you the the what actually needs to be accomplished through this what they ended up with due due to the professionals that they hired to make this promotion was something quite good. That did exac. Tely what they wanted to do. But you can't. So that sense you career for Billy McFarland for hiring the right people and having the kind of the right idea. Terms of you know, how to sell a certain lifestyle back to a certain type of person. But when you have to sit down with plans deal with stuff like plumbing ability doesn't want to spend a second of his life thinking about that kind of thing. He's just it's not in his his nature, and he'd much rather be the guy partying and be be the one, you know, living out this fantasy that he is offering to other people. Yeah. As the whole shot list, there might be a little bit of four there. They're almost like if this were narrative film and not a documentary. You would you put that detail in there to set up the disaster to come? And I I don't know we let's create a project where we promoted by asking much influencers to publish a post of orange. Orange tile or just tile those clever? Yeah, there's nothing you know, they were selling complete emptiness. But it was still emptiness is the color, orange, Shannon. Oh, maybe that's the title.

"I started talking to Billy. And from the gecko was, you know, we're all running around scrambling every day to find new houses, we need help from you guys start to cut people. These people aren't paying for experience tell them not to come. And it was a constant battle because they cared. Most about was influencers. So I'm imploring them to cancel paying guests at this point. You know, they're not gonna stay and the response from Billy was we're not a problem focus group were solutions oriented group, we need to have positive attitude about this. We need to have a good attitude, and he was unflappable, but he was also entirely delusional. So it was this constant battle in my mind. Between is this guy a genius. Or is he a mad at because he would not take no for an answer. And he would not take advice. He's a liar. Now, it's time for connections will bring these two films together and talk about all the things they have in common. I think that the obvious place to start is Mark short versus Billy McFarland. What do they have in common with? They don't wanna dreamer went to scam. You know, they may have visions for things they don't really have the skills to execute. Or the means execute or whatever. But I think the question intent is very central to what sets apart from each other. Yeah. I was reminded just now of the short little exchange between for short and Mike shank in American movie where Mike is talking about how he might like to be a producer. 'cause you get like money and women or something, you know, and Marxist like what he's he's not having it that what Mike shank saying like strikes me as very much more in the Billy McFarland mold and it kind of goes back to what I was saying in the first half about. Or Chartres streams being modest noble. I don't know pick your budgeting. But like what he wants to do is creative endeavor. Like, he wants to make something and Billy McFarland just seems to want to be rich famous and influencers to be king of the millennials whatever like it's all very power and status based whereas Mark were Chartres is seems very much more creativity based, you know, whenever model of creativity. We're dealing with with him. But you know, it'd be very funny to see them the. The ruble. Having lunch. I wanna see Mark Bouchart making the movie of of how billing far. Yeah. That would be pretty funny. But, but there is that basic idea of someone who has this great vision has the ability and has the charisma to bring a lot of people on board and have them work, very very hard to make it happen. And really, I think with knowledge and billing me fallen probably there had been a part of billing fallen thought like this is gonna I'm gonna make this happen. This is gonna actually gonna pull this off and Borchert has too. But there's also the other side where they both perhaps knew that they wouldn't either. And that other people were going to be into being disappointed by having come aboard. And and put in the effort because there because things are not going to work out for them. I mean, it's hard to get inside the mind of Billy McFarland as you say he's not he's a presence, but not present in in fire. And boy start is an open book. We're hearing we we're hearing so much from him. But, but even if we did get more from building fire than like, you get the sense. He would never be the sort of open book that Marc Busch artist because he. He's a scam artist. And he's he's hiding stuff from everyone. You know, like, his employees his partners. You know, part of the theme of this movie is using shell game. You know, and so that type of personality like a person who's running kind of scam would never be the sort of open and forthcoming that Mark short is. I would assume ultimately ends up being if we're talking about fire festival scam. What point does it become a scam? And then at what point does it in the financing. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he's borrowing against money. He he doesn't have and promising returns on investment that he he can't am very fascinated by that woman. Corolla who you know, apparently has financed. Who knows how many of Billy's dreams over the years? Maybe she's his his uncle Bill. You know? But he's definitely screwing investors. I mean, that's we'll know he went to prison for wire fraud, but he was charged with defrauding investors. You know? And that's I think definitely where the scam comes in. But was there point though, where he was simply in over his head. And then it kind of became a scam. You know, like, yeah. I I think in terms of the general public becomes a scam. When they continue to sell they know they're not gonna be able to deliver it. I guess if you want to be generous it's fairly late in the process. I mean up until the moment before they thought Blake wanted to to be there. I I don't know, you know, the the same time though, like they know they can sell these bungalows these these gourmet meals the saying they're going to provide. I don't consider their though there on the ground there. Bussing people in they have. Yeah, they're trying to throw some crappy version of of this festival. And there was there might be in addition to. Camry. A just a massive level of delusion. Right. And I I think that is maybe sort of another link between borsch art and McFarland, you know, like the desire. Maybe they're the desire is definitely there with both of them. But the ability, you know. It gets a little shakier. They're like with fire. There's that little bit where the guy who's booking all the acts has never booked anyone before you know, and doesn't really know what he's doing and Billy just like bringing in people he knows to help things, but like not actually bringing in a fest like a person who has done festivals until like what forty five days before it's supposed to snarl. There's just level of clueless nece here that just kneecaps surplus of ambition. You know, with also part of the to both of their parts is that this belief that if you just start to do something things will magically materialize around it. I mean think about where borsch art is trying to start making north western. He doesn't have a script finished. He's in huge debt. He so he doesn't have any of the money in place. And yet he's making casting calls putting crews together he's having a production meeting when really any sane person would say, wait a minute. I don't have any of I'm not even anywhere. Close. I mean, he does get to that point. But like Billy McFarland doesn't mean maybe that's the difference ability. Farland never gets to the point. He gets all the way to the to the end of the line these still trying to push the scam. He's still on the ground, you know, on top of a rock or something trying to direct people. He's a level of delusion here that both of them share in common. I mean, maybe more so Billy. I mean that is sort of interesting part of his personality or it's like a hundred percent scam. Artist wouldn't have been anywhere near the scene. You know for fear of being driven driven away with pitchforks. You know, I don't know. Maybe they could pull out a miracle last second. Maybe they're maybe they're just dumb made. It maybe me. They're only talent comes for like, she's just scamming people. But

"Stories. Figel like totally benign smile on his face score that he does for the that works out. So well, that's so smart to incorporate that just really just woven into the fabric of the movies. If it sounds like Sabbath. But of course, maybe more troubled relationship is that relationship to uncle Bill because I think there's there's argument that you could make that Mark is bills is the only one who really is looking after ankle billon cash cares about uncle Bill. Is he doing very good job? Maybe not that gonna Darlie monitored. What it was it was the free to use. Afraid to use when he was in the bath. Yeah. It's you doing the moderate like uncle bills trailer. Like, you know. Yeah. Yeah. But I don't know. I am only willing to extend Bouchard a certain amount of leeway in terms of the the care heat provides uncle Bill because I am of the opinion that it's not necessarily coming from a pure hearted place and the sort of half-heartedness with which he does his caregiving reflects that. But even like giving him a bath. I mean, he doesn't do that perfectly. Also both wasted. When it had. Else? Yeah. Given given given an old even old, man. A bath is an old man with the gnarly tone is not not somebody not something that you would necessarily want to do. And he's he's out there doing it. And I think there's a they seem to enjoy each other in Bill likes getting the attention that he gets for marketing seems to be at least semi aware of barks culture here motives to and likes to shoot him down on occasion. I don't know. I mean, so you're you're leading pretty heavily towards. Exploitation. I mean, it's so hard to say because go Bill is clearly, you know, mentally deteriorating over the course of of this film, you know, and one of our last scenes with I mean there several scenes where he, you know, the subtitles just go like gibberish in. You know, he's sings on, you know, he's not fully engaging in conversations at this point. But like there's a scene where you know, Marxist Yam ring about something or other with the film and in the bills just like is a time to eat. You know, it's four thirty is the time to eat, you know, and they're just to me he seems not really interested in anything that markets doing with the movie as much as he is. And just like having someone anyone around. I don't particularly see a lot of fiction toward Mark coming from him. But he did leave him with a big chunk of cash to finish the movie. Yeah. Or start the movie. And I do and I do wonder what point Bill like made that will in what way are 'nice. Mark had that he had this money coming to him, you know, 'cause Bill died very shortly after this movie wraps like a matter of a couple of months. I think you know, so presumably he already had a will in place. Although who knows me it was a scrap paper and his trailer. You know, you just literally take on to the Bank. That's yeah counts. So yeah. So there is there is a strong effort to separate him from his money. You the same mind knuckle Bill, it's I think lines can get blurry. Maybe there's some real fondness there too. But what if on this is also kind of tied into the fact the has the money of not funded? I guess, but at least help it along, I take it genuine. I think it's right in the middle there domestic of, you know. These scenes between these screen him. And uncle Bill. There's a there's he jokes around. And it's you know, I think they joy each other more worth he gets thrown from okla- belly does from his brothers. That's for. Sure. Oh my God. That one at least one of his brothers is. Absolutely, George's them and those interview sequences. Yeah. Oh my God. If that's a whole interesting aspect to is parents and their separation, which is dealt with too much. But his mother kinda going out on shoots with him and stuff and fill the camera. Decorate bit with with her with her shooting framing him. That's that's the wonderful wonderful stuff. That is actually maybe the moment. I like Mark the most in this movie just because like you can feel the frustration coming off him. But also just the desire to to do this to make this happen. But it's like tempered with like he's talking to his mom, you know, and he does have a certain amount of respect for his mom, arguably not enough, but that's another conversation. But just like watching him in that frame just having his will to do this like sucked out of him. But just like holding on he's going to get through this gonna do it. I'm not going to yell at my mom, and we're going to get the shot. It just it feels like the best expression of the Mark Borchert character to me really loves them loves his mom when he loves wake shanking uncle Bill and in that comes through in the reporter on occasion or often. Even in some cases, if Mark short we're in intolerable person. To be around the none. None of what he accomplishes would have been possible because everyone is drawn in by him. And he has that charisma he jokes around a lot. And he's you know, he enjoys people, and he's not a monster that one after I say, the one the one who's like, well, I usually have to sort of hard out get out of this time. I know this is really poured to him. So I kinda tried to balance those two, and that's the guy you got his head smash there. Yeah. Over and over. Clearly, there has to be something to Mark short to inspire that sort of devotion. That's what it is so many memorable scenes and set pieces in this film. I would like to hear from from you, all what your favorite move is in American movie. This this time just like a little shot where he is vacuuming the Muslim and just kind of gets the cord caught around one of the flowers and kind of has like a whip it off inches let this little moment that they throw in there. But it's it's sort of kind of telling of his existence at that time too. But in terms of the big scenes always a sucker for for, you know, in documentary or narrative film of the scene. That's just not working, and it's going bills saying that line over and over. Increasing resentment, and we see we see that moment and actual premiere of the film. Okay. They gotta know Kate probably got the best line remained could out. You know, I was really happy that they opted to show us the end result of that. Because I think that is the the standout seen at least in contention for it. And it would have been cruel to dance. You know, seeing what it what it would actually came of it. So that was going to be my pick two. But as for a small moment, it's at the beginning when he's going through his stack of bills like the kicker of it is tick, I got a MasterCard. Somebody gave me a Mestre. And I also like Mike shake and the other Guy Forget his name explaining or once come. Yeah. Explaining what happened to the flyers attempting to hang up the flyers. It takes two of them to scotch tape. A flyer in the middle of giant Goss window? It's amusing to me establish that he's a competent dish filmmaker. I don't know that you need to drag someone through puddles. Get the sound. So dry. Find a way to that. So for us are so good. And we do turn to record whether no birds no sound whatsoever. That's that's that's beautiful stuff. And I and I really like the scene of of and Mike shank a framed in front of the front of the junk yard and talking about you know, Rocco. Yeah. Is this what you want to do with your life? Suck down permit. Schnapps? Call Morocco at two two in the morning. That's that's that's wonderful, wonderful stuff. But the cabinet scene to me is, you know, this to go with the obvious. I mean that is a that is a wonderful sequence again. And again as I said before I mean is not it'd be don't have a special effects crew. You know, they don't have the breakaway cupboard or anything. And so so what they're doing? It's not not stupid. But it's not as dumb as it seems. It's like, okay, we're going to put scores in the saying, and he's gonna hit it with his head. And it's gonna it's gonna break. And have the fact it's going to have at least he apologized at least he was like, I'm sorry, man. I'm sorry. It was like, oh, no. Choice to pinch. It get fist through. That's that's good. That's filmmaking. You know, that is whether you're you know, Werner Herzog boy short. I mean who knows if Porsche art had Herzog's resources who knows what have what? But humanity on Netflix by now. All right. We'll talk more about American moving connection with Christmas latest film fire next week. But for now will move onto feedback. Now,

"Dream. I mean, as as the entire universes telling Mark borsch to do, you know, it's it's a painful thing to do and for him to kinda carry on despite that is Geraldo and its way. The other thing that I personally to also as a mid westerner. And as someone who doesn't necessarily have a lot of connections. I never really wanted to make a movie I was always kind of happier doing this. But even like right about movies. It seemed like an impossible thing something that someone from where I came from. Nobody else interested around me and culture, writing or culture, people dissension culture in general where I grew up. It was you know, the same things seemed out of reach. And I found that variable that I don't know that he was, you know, the next Spielberg denied or anything, but he really got a chance to find out for himself. There's also the matter of scale, I mean, I don't really get the sense that Marsh art like is dying to jet off to Hollywood to become you know, the next Spielberg. He just he wants to make movie there's all this wonderful footage of, you know, the super eight millimeter film seem may just like driving around with his buddies, you know, and causing mayhem that teenagers. Do you know and his desire to make a movie seems? Very pure in a lotta ways a he just wants it to be out there. You know, he wants to sell enough VHS copies to make a another movie it's somewhat modest ambition within the very large scope that making any movie is, but within movie, generally, I think what he wants to do is fairly modest. The point. I think about him is that he isn't Tommy was he's not. I mean, obviously, he is limitations to his talent. But into its finance finance what he's got an eye. He he's film literate. He knows certainly knows technically what he's doing. He's not that bad a filmmaker brings to that again to that point about the time critics are sort of complaining that the film's being sending towards him. It's like if you've ever been on a low budget shoot or a student production or direction of the scale that of borsch arts. I mean, this kind of this kind of DIY craziness is the norm. It's like, you know, it's it's part of the process of learning. And I think everyone is having fun with that the film is laughing with it. And it should I mean, it can you imagine like, can you imagine like getting all of that footage of the cabinet the cabinet scene? And then deciding you know, if I put it in their people. The gold that solid gold. You're you're putting that in the movie, unless you're a crazy person the whole kind of thing just dwell along reminds me that when we did Roger and me for our Michael Moore pairing that also came up, then is whether he was being condescending toward the rabbit lady. You're you know, anyone else in Flint, and I kind of wonder if the whole like condescension criticism is maybe just coming from a place of elitism to begin with, you know, maybe maybe maybe just a complaint that people had some people like to complain about at the time. And now it's like what people talk about. Yeah. That could be too. But on midwestern folk, that's that's the thing. Well, in both the case of Roger and me, and and here, it's filmmakers who are like filming in in their own space in their own world. You know, like Christmas wasn't really an outsider, you know, like coming into this into this world and Michael Moore was returning to his hometown. You know, like, I think there has to be like an exploit hate of element to cling con. Dissension that I don't think either these films. I don't see neither of these films to circle back to a point that Keith made earlier Christmas wasn't anything at this point. He he had the way this film came together was that he was at an editing bay the university of Wisconsin, Milwaukee cutting together his first movie called American job. And so in that that's when he kind of borsch art was working on his film, and there's all sorts of arrack l borsch ARCO anywhere without there being a certain amount of noise. Immunise four kids tagging allies sleeping in the bay. Exactly. Right. And so this plenty of that. And but Christmas at that point was a mid westerner. For from komo's Michigan new traveled around and live different places. Who would scrape together a very small budget in asked a lot of favors to get, you know, American jobs fantastic film off the ground, but it wasn't off the ground yet. And when he when he finished cutting American job didn't got rejected from. Sundance rejected from a bunch of festivals before it finally kind of found a couple of people who recognized how good it was. And then then it found fun its way out. So it's not available anywhere. It's not. It's not really good. It is really good one. I hope like Christmas starting to work a lot more now. And maybe maybe that will inspire American job to come on. I think it was like was it a special feature Lee American movie DVD that was special because that is nearly as good as American movie, my -pinion, but but it's a great scene. I spent a summer working light light industrial work, which is I was thinking of you watching the scene. Yeah. And there's a their various machine presses that kind of thing. But plastic plastic box battery worst of all, but you kinda just have to adjust your body to the rhythms of the machines like the part, they could not automate what you are. So like, you take the PLA my Mike, you should take the plastic boxes out in the shave off the side. But there's a quivalent the hero that movie has quit. And it was like, you know, in the time takes the machine to spit out. Whatever is he's working on that time your own like, you can read you can read a book or whatever says seen him like trying to read a novel, and like thirty seconds at a time in his downtime, while it's definitely, you know, like like American movie it benefits from someone knowing what he's talking about, you know, and knowing the world he's trying to depict and knowing labor. Yeah. Which is a part of this movie to in which which is we'll get to later as a part of fire. I mean like like this is about jobs that have to be done. I mean, you get plenty of footage of short working newspaper route or you know, working at the cemetery down fourteen hundred American flags. Yeah. So I mean that is you know, he has to scrape it these low wage jobs to put together what money can I mean? Just just a swimming in debt. Maybe this women dead a little bit less. An American job is all about that as all about minimum wage jobs that this guy goes from one to another. There's scene with the box factories. I it is boxed forget what it was. He he breaks machine. He just walks off. Yeah. Comes in the next day in estimate with the boss and the bus has them sit in his chair to this the buses chair and tell him what he do in his situation. It's like, well, I have to let you go. You're speaking of movies that people can't see. Have either of you seen anymore of Kovin than what appears all? It's on the DVD. Yeah. And it's interesting. What you see in the movie is actually really the Trach e in American move. You're actually really promising looking like is that is it seems like we're seeing the opening credits surrounded the, and it's it's not great. But it's not. I mean, it's like a lot of a really good student film. Yeah. A lot of other low budget or from the time like I can see him. You know, kinda thing you, maybe, you know, hardcore fans would buy on VHS in from back fan gory or were the seems to be like operating in your milieu, or what used to be your key like like is his plan to sell three hundred eighty copies of Kovin at all realistic. I mean, probably quality aside like something like at that scale going to sell three thousand copies. Correctly, the American movie website kept track of how many VHS copies sold and like even with the publicity of the film itself. I don't think they're close to meet. I watched because I did this whole feature on Christmas. And and so I watched I watched and watching their three appearances by Mark short on Letterman. He was kind of funny character the Letterman like to bring on the moment. Exactly. There was a thing where he I think I think I mean this obviously the publicity for this film did gave cove and sales a huge boost. They would not otherwise, I don't know even with that actually made enough. Okay. But I I agree with Keith in terms of the quality of the film. It's not a great movie. But but it's not terrible. It promising though, I wouldn't necessarily even go that far. But but it's not it's not garbage. It's not like again, it's time. It was this somebody who has since ability and has an eye, but is not hugely not usually sophisticated filmaker either. I mean, that's I don't wanna like over do the comparison to Tommy was. But like they are kind of interesting analogous figures working at more or less the same time some perhaps it's inevitable. But like borsch art seems like he at least has a pretty good handle on the craft of filmmaking. And if not necessarily the ability to do the work an awareness of the work that needs to be done. But perhaps. Not the level of vision or ambition. In terms of the actual content of his film that unlike time it was so much to that's the difference, right or training to necessarily get the chance to learn the skills. These kind of church picked him up on his own real this books that he's in his room to and every f stop known to man in this fell. He knows what f stop Tommy was damn thing about f stop or how to work, you know, editing bay, and I he was cutting on film. So that that's a huge that's a skill. But what I one of the things I wanted to get to you before we because we were still deep into this. I want to talk about the relationships in the film because there's so many memorable characters to particular Mike shank in Bill. So maybe we break them down one by one. What do you make of these relationships shanks to mystery, right? Well, I feel like both relationships are really tied up in a lot of ways not solely. But in a lot of ways with Mark's relationship with alcohol and partying one of the things that I had either missed before forgotten is the scenes of Mark like feeding Bill alcohol getting him drunk, and that is like Cleese clearly not at a stage in his life or that. Isn't it all beneficial to him and with Mike Shayne he seems to have a very much? Seems very uneasy relationship with Mike's sort of newfound sobriety, such as it is, you know, and there's the premier there's a that weird moment where he's like on sage thanking people and he says something like don't drink drinking's bad to to Mike just like calls amount. Make some weird comment about drinking and that complicated. Those relationships to me in a really interesting way, and because marks drinking partying, whatever you wanna call. It is sort of like a foundational aspect of a lot of this movie. Like, I mean, several people say in the movie that he has some sort of problem, and we see him drinking while he's filming and stuff, you know, he's perhaps functional, but it's maybe a bigger part of his life than it needs to be. And in these cases, maybe a little bigger part of his relationships than it needs to be. I mean, there's a scene in here on Super Bowl Sunday with us, quite quite messy. That's so ugly. That's that's a bottom out. See an and I think. That whole monologue about not working in a factory. It's like sad. But it's like, that's you know, there's kind of sending their to that that he thinks he's he's better than the working class people around him, you know, and it's it's it's it's rough rough seeing watch. Yeah. No. It's it's real. I mean, I, you know, in terms of just the way that dynamic plays out though. I mean Bush, right. Maybe this is the true real-life at also on screen is just you know, you have you have borsch art. Who's who does all the talking get you have shank who's passive and kind of this pleasant presence that he liked except for that scene where he's talking about his acid slash PCP. Dose whatever like that is a wild monologue. Stories.

"Documentary American movie could be called burden of dreams as a middle aged person. Watching the film, I found myself more sensitive to the practical consequences abortion. It's emissions. He's a father of young children. What's his relationship with them? How well as he supporting them what burden are they accepting on his behalf. He's roped in actors and crew members with his pitch what his broken promises means for them. And how are we to take his relationship with Bill on the one hand seems to be the only person genuinely carry enough to withstand Bill surliness and look after him on occasion. Even giving them a bath. On the other Bill is the one solid source of money. He could tap and he's aggressive about doing. So is he a good nephew? Or is. He just trying to separate demented old man from his nest egg, these are complicated questions, and they reveal American movie to be about so much more than a film about filmmaking though, it's off. Funny as hell in that respect. It's about the calculations all of us. Make is a Dulce between pursuing dreams and acknowledging responsibilities. Mark Bouchart is an extreme case these willing to dodge or deny reality in the pursuit of greatness. When I I saw American movie in nineteen ninety nine I was fortunate enough to achieve dream that I'd carried so sixteen years old and working in movie theater. Twenty years later, I'm still more or less on the same track. But with a much more practical sense of what the job is what larger responsibilities I have to those closest to me because whatever dreams I've had in have not entirely my own. This is ridiculous. We started may ninety four man we've got every f Stott known to man in film. And right now, we gotta take action, man. We gotta go out to that field. Put those scarecrows it on a killer. Slant they've been there for years the farms burnt down. It's going to be the opening shots for cove in. You know, what is going cove in the thirty five minute. Direct market thriller film shot and sixteen millimeter black and white reversal. It's. An alcoholic man compelled to go to this group meeting by his one and only friends left, but they're not that helpful the group. You know, you know, about the group thing. Okay. So that's what we're doing a film on. Kovin man, we gotta get this sucker done though, seriously last night now so drunk. I was calling Morocco men calling trying to get the hotel Hilton at tan jeers in Casablanca in its evidence. That's pathetic, man. Is that what you want to do what you're life sucks? Peppermint schnapps and try to call Morocco at two in the morning. Senseless. But that's what happens, man. Okay. So you've heard me talk about this question. So out of this movie play for you when you saw it and how does it play for your now? I played great then and plays great now. And while I've always been of the mind that the Christmas lobby it's it's sort of exploiting for short and making fun of him. But I really never thought that then, and I think even less, oh now places very even handed to me. And I mean full disclosure, I interviewed Chris Smith. I kinda got a little bit at the time. And his take was always that he was filmmaker trying to figure out how to do what he was doing. And he was just making documentary about another filmmaker in the same situation. Obviously, you know, when you find a colorful character who's gonna be furniture in film. But I think there's a certain amount of respect and interest and concern to the filmmaking that never played his condescending to me I've seen this movie before, but if it's less than ten years ago it was while I was at the club. And I think I have probably less of a personal connection to this film than both of you do for various reasons, but like. I liked it. Then I liked it. Now or short is just very charismatic and very specific way. And I think that is what keeps it from feeling exploitative. Like, you say he's he's just like the kind of character that pulls you into his orbit whether you like actually like him or not or want to hang out with him. He's he's such a curiosity of person which makes for a very compelling documentary. That is also really sad. Like, I think you're kind of circling the a little bit in your keynote, Scott. But you know, I definitely came away from it. This time feeling a lot sadder than I remembered the the first time when I think I may be approached it a little more, you know, glibly or snide Lee is, you know, look this weirdo. Kind of almost Tommy was oh type figure, you know. But kind of looking at it now in the context of his family and the people around him and his adult obligations and Mike shank who is just such a interesting counterpoint to everything that is go. Going on with with Mark here. It's hard to come away from it feel like I feel sad. Not because Mark still hasn't gotten to make northwestern. Just like feel sad that I feel sad that this is life because that's condescending. But just like I feel bad about like all the circumstances that are in this movie one of these battling against the forces. That would face even talent working from the mid west. You know, wasn't trying to make a movie like that's kind of what I mean is like independent of the movie making aspect and him like knocking to realize dream just like there's so much in his life that is like relatable on a just sort of a human level like the financial struggles relationship difficulties the family tension, and strife, you know, there's a lot there that is very recognizable on a human level. The movie almost seems more of a frame around all of that to me to kind of continue. What's was saying as you get older unit living happy life? You realize that life is? After certain points. It's doors closing opportunities. Just not being there. And you know, he's high early thirties right right around thirty one. So yeah, it really is. He Mona realization that may be too late for him. You know, and he doesn't have that realization realization or he said nine at the entire movie that that it's not going to happen. And yeah, I think you're I think you're right though, also that I mean, you know to get to raffle. But you know, it's easy to see. Oh, that's kind of funny. He's also dad, and he's trying to do all this. And now, it's like we'd be a dad, you know. Is this more important than your moving? One of the things I found interesting about this film, watching it. This time was how long Smith, and I guess this is a good time to also cut it Sarah price who is his collision. Film by. Yeah. Spencer. There's no actual directory credit. It's a film by the two of them. But anyway, I find it very interesting that the choose to wait. So long to introduce the fact that he has has children, you know, you really you spend a lot more time with his obsession with this film. And then it's like all of a sudden. Oh, and also there's kids I think it's very good throughout film energies new wrinkles. Like. Yeah. Also, kind of the stripe with his parents. That's also kind of comes later. So that's kind of what I mean about the making a movie element seeming more like a framing device within this portrait of a kind of ordinary life in a lot of ways. Just another motive to on Christmas part is the all of these elements are on the periphery because they're on the periphery of borsch arts right life to like, he's not minding of these elements that are would be very central being father of all children would be pretty central to your. Experiences a person. Usually if you're not trying to chase the stream as he isn't. So you have some very important elements that he's pushing the cider denying. And I think the film does nice job of reflecting that because I think there's another film you could make that would just be about all areas of his life that are going on tended. But we don't get that movie at this one, which is great. And so you can kind of that you can kind of then go back to and think about oh what's being forgotten here? He's pursuing the dream. But I think I think there's the other thing about this film it, so I guess this where it gets inspiring your semi inspiring is that I think everybody does have people have dreams. I mean, people do want to achieve something grand with their life. You know, even if they're other lives or younger lives, they're responsible for its actually table that dream.

"Between the past. Leads or someone pass. Antoon take possession of living. We may be through with the past. But the past is not through with us. Welcome to the next picture show movie the week podcast to a classic film. And how it shaped her thoughts and a recent release. I'm Scott Tobias here with Genevieve Koskinen Keith ups. Tasha Robinson is at the Sundance film festival spending millions on the next Spitfire grill, but she'll be back at lower altitudes soon. Every week we get together to talk over classic film and consider how it relates to occur in movie today. We're looking at documentaries about two dreamers. One an independent filmmaker for Milwaukee who's determined to make his first feature the other an entrepreneur from New York who's trying to stage the most exclusive high in music festival. The world has ever seen to inspiring tales of triumph over adversity. Right genevieve. Well, they definitely deliver in the diversity department. Not so much in the triumph department, but they're inspiring right noble failures mixed bag there too. I'm afraid one of them is still nurturing the dream twenty years later. The other one is currently spending six years in federal prison who've. Okay. So what do they have in common? We'll save that question for connections. But Mark Bouchart and Billy McFarland are to unforgettable characters profiled by director, Chris Smith, and independent filmmaker who's fascinated by Embiid eccentrics borsch art is a hero of Smith's nineteen ninety nine breakthrough film American movie, which was supposed to be about bre shards. Efforts to make a personal film called northwestern. But is actually about him finishing a horror short called coven Genevieve, please it's pronounced Tova n- Ryan's with Ovan as in. I took the cookies out of the Ovan. Go ahead. Thank you will Smith's new film is a Netflix documentary fire one of two competing documentaries about fire festival notoriously botched attempt to stage, a luxury music festival on a beach in the Bahamas. The other called fire fraud is on Hulu at the center of fire is founder Billy McFarland who partnered with the rapper job rule to offer well-to-do millennials opportunity to party with models and paradise and taken the music of major lazer. Blink one. Eighty two migos. And other acts needless to say the festival fell well short of expectations. So this week will kick off her Christmas pairing with American movie a documentary about the thrilling humbling, occasionally stupefying process of film. The next week will bring in fire talk about all the things the two films have in common. Keith, I've given you one line in the script. Let's hear it. It's all right. It's so K. There's something to live for Jesus told me, so wow, I take cut print that's a wrap. His whole life is missing one fell. You have two hours tomorrow from eleven AM to one PM and be an extra in a film. You get your name on the credits man as a producer. And of course, still be a whole crowd of people here. So we gotta make like a line where people can't go have a hell of a lot of system director saying, hey, could you step back like five feet? I think my mind is going to have to end up going out in the woods shopping to do. Okay. You gotta spread apart that way, all of the extras of just fell through except for Mike shank right there party together. But I don't party anymore. A Mike make sure everyone has Brown gloves deserving on have Brown gloves. Do do I'm broke man. I got hit cast. Cast and dudes talking to all making a feature film film is cove and. Kevin that's the proper pronunciation of Covent sounds like oven man in exodus. It doesn't work. She wants to be in your fill Bill. If get your three grand bath. It's the first line of the film, man. It's got to be on the money. Yes. All right. Okay. I believe we can do the first question. We usually ask the beginning of each next picture show pairing is what is your history with the older movie. How did it play when you first encountered it and how does it play now? But I'm going to address that question now about American movie because I think when you see the film does affect your understanding of it. And for me, it's personal American movie premiered almost exactly twenty years ago, the Sundance film festival in I premiered as a fulltime film critic about six months after that a much different perspective on my chosen field that I have now as a young adult. It's easy to see American movie as the inspiring story of filmmakers chasing, his dream in simply won't take. No for an answer. Mark Bouchart the ultimate outsider a blue collar guy from Milwaukee who determined not to lead an ordinary life, perhaps the most comparable path is successful. Borsch? Art would be Jorge Romero. A Pittsburgh native made a name. Himself for the ultra low budget black and white zombie film night of the living dead as it happens. Bouchart is a huge George Romero fan having made Romero inspired horror shorts on super eight millimeter with titles like the more the scarier in the more the scarier three. And as American movie opens for Chartres is three years into making Kovin a black and white shocker that still an edit and a few re-shoots away from being finished the film is extensively about the making abortion. It's first feature film northwestern production that he's determined to get off the ground despite not having finished gripped or anywhere near the resources to make it happen outside of a few production meetings. However, we never see a single frame of north western get shot. In fact, we never you. And find out what it's about what filmmaking. We do. Get to see our the re-shoots on Kovin which poor shot hopes will attract enough attention in VHS sales to get on the money needs for his magnum opus. In the meantime, he's working odd jobs as a newspaper delivery, man. And as a janitor at a cemetery hang out with his buddy. Mike shank, drew. Being a lot and sorting through second and third notices on bills that are piling up. Hollywood is still a steep climb away. And yet if the title were already taken by another great making of documentary

"Yourself mode kicked in hides a free for all, you know, you see these. And I actually thought both of them were really good my recommendation would be watched the Netflix one first, and then Hulu, but Scott Tobias with dot com might have a different perspective on that. He wrote about some of this, including the the Netflix one in particular because of director Chris Smith, and he's with me this afternoon, Scott. How are you? I'm doing. All right. How are you? I'm fascinated with all this fire stuff. And I guess I didn't really pay attention too much before these docs came out. I remember hearing about it a little bit in the news. But there's there's a lot of folks that are watching these are watching both of them buzzing about the fire festival right now. And it sorta has taken the country to a certain extent when it comes to binge watching television by storm hasn't it? Do you? Remember, you know, if you spent a lot of time on social media really exploded that weekend, which is a late April two thousand seventeen that the the way that whole thing down, and and all the. For the for millennials. It's sort of he did play out on social media. But it's interesting to see these documentaries. You know, the perspective they get from doing some real journalism and looking into what actually happened. I learned a lot even though I certainly were paying attention to what was going on a little a little background before. Because I we can't assume that everyone knows what we're talking about when it comes to this music fest. So this guy Billy McFarland says I'm gonna do this huge music festival down in the Bahamas. And at first he he sells it as on one of Pablo Escobar islands, which none of this stuff was true. But it was a brilliant marketing effort by this company that was called Jerry media or f- Jerry that sort of that summit up, and then it's all brought together. Supermodels put posts on Instagram. There's excitement the thing sells out and people arrive. And of course, I'm kind of putting this in a short synopsis when concert goers are festivalgoers arrived. There are FEMA tans awaiting them with soaking mattresses, and the whole thing's a bust. Let's right in in in the gourmet meal. Alert to slice of bread. Undress salad of live music is ever actually played. So, yeah, it's it's a disaster. And of course, you're you're right. It was supposed to be on. Public private island. It ended up being on x amount which is which one of the larger islands in the Bahamas. Just north of an unfinished what a little bit north of samples. It's it was a it was a catastrophe in the post docs, mysteries reveal a scam going, which I should say that the that Jerry media was involved in promotion. Weren't involved in actually. Right. Fire media, which was going to be Farland's company. So let me talk about or have you talk about some of the ethical concerns in both doctors, you focusing your piece on Christmas. I know Chris a little bit from my days in Milwaukee. And I know you I love the fact that you know, you go into American movie American movie is one of my favorite films of all time. It's a documentary from twenty years ago about this guy Mark poor chart and his his kind of pothead buddy, Mike shank, and they're trying to do horror movies, by the way. I'm connected to this movie Scott for a variety of reasons, but Mark chart used to call my radio show when I did evenings at WTMJ Milwaukee on a regular basis, and of course, after the movie came out, I'm pretty sure you used to call my show before the movie came out after the movie came out. I could always tell that it was him which was pretty funny because you know, the accent is pretty distinguishable up there in the north, but he's was in in certainly in particular. But that's a fascinating movie. No, it's it's been exactly twenty years since it premiered at at Sundance. So I use that. As an opportunity to kind of do, you know fish to the ringer. This long form piece on Christmas house fear is gone from American movie to the Netflix documentary. And then I in the second piece sort of came out of that was actually, you know, a little bit of a scoop because they both documentaries. Have certain ethical. Yeah. Checkups and all of the the back and forth sort of played out. You know over my line right now. I think I kind of thing this is the way I described it last week. I think that maybe it's a wash with the ethical concerns. But let's go into him. So the complaint about the Netflix dot Christmas stock is that he as producers uses the Jerry media guys. Right. Yeah. Well, they had sorta I mean, they're they're they're involved in the promotion. In marketing of it in there. They shot all the stuff on before the festival. You know for the festival that stuff with the supermodels and influencers Instagram campaigns. I mean that was all they're doing and so in so flex partnered with Sam. In order to be able to use that footage. But of course, on the other side of the fighter fair for documentary, which doctor Dr three they're saying that, you know, Jerry media was well aware the festival was not going to be. What was you know, what it was? And they were kind of complicit in that. Right. Right. Right. So they're saying that saying that they were complicit. So that's an ethical issue for them. Well, the other side of it. You know, the the Hulu people paid. Mcfarland. Dollars right. Very much disputed McFarland set that they pay them two hundred fifty dollars. Actually thousand dollars, but but it's probably possible and probably likely that he was just giving Netflix number to leverage. Yes. Because he lies a lot. And that's what he does best. Right. He's not on the level. Maybe he should run for president or something like that. That might not be bad for him. Did you have a preference? I thought that they were both really good documentaries in different ways. And I think they they sort of work well as companion pieces, do you have an opinion about that? Well, I mean, I think. Documentary. I because. Feels like he's very solid piece of storytelling about what actually went down. And who documentary is much more kind of a piece of commentary. I would agree. But I think I much prefer the Netflix documentary. I think it's much better movie. I agree with you. I I liked Chris better. But I do think that there was some things in that Hulu doc that were were interesting different perspectives. There was something that I thought was a blatant omission though, from the who was the guy that ran the festival. I can't remember his name. Scott. But the the gay guy who admitted and this has been somewhat controversial tour at least people are buzzing about it. Because this guy what was his name. Your member was a Ken. Yeah. So he basically was asked at one point to get a bunch of stuff out of customs to go down and service, the guy in charge of customs enforcement via oral sex and he admitted in the documentary that he would have done it. And he's not featured in like, they don't even talk about that guy in the Hulu dock at all. No. But I think the focus is different. What what does things I really admire about Vanessa? Eventually is that is that its main trusses that school who worked really hard good faith, including you, clearly, this guy is all the way to make this happen. Ended up holding the bag and not getting. They just get paid got your older hard work. And there there were some swept up by stand for which they were not responsible. So I thought that that was interesting angle that Christmas for the head on festival. I was not expecting kinda mix that film stand up for me a little bit. I said I mentioned something as I was promoting this interview where one of my friends heard me earlier in the day because I do a quick promos saying, hey coming up this afternoon. We were talking about the fire festival, and he said that he and his girlfriend had tried three times to watch the Netflix dot Chris's dock and fell asleep each tunnel. Like, dude, you're like the only person because I think the response for most people, and it's amazing how these films have in many ways greater impact then feature films released at the theatre. It's also kind of amazing that a movie like this. I'm a big fan. And it sounds like you are Scott of documentaries because I think some of these documentaries. I've put American movie in category are far more entertaining. And engaging. The most of what comes out of Hollywood, but it's kind of cool to see people latching onto documentaries because I think they're finding not only are they entertaining and informative, but also can be pretty compelling entertainment. Most definitely most definitely. I love documentaries. Always always. A lot of these streaming platforms. That's who Amazon they buy up documentaries by the bundle. And there's a lot of really good one on the service and the commission Christie's documentary for that. On the came on the service last year about told Jim Andy, right, really? Perfect hard. Jim Carey and Andy Kaufman in that that whole backstory there is fascinating to definitely. So there's plenty of plenty of good things to see documentary them. Streaming services on. I'm I'm sure it's was interesting to see you know, these two. You know, we're talking about the same about the same. Also, just a lot of going back and forth. It was a it was probably the all the flame throwing was maybe I'm always a little bit, you know, suspicious about this, especially when you have great PR companies that were able to calm people into buying tickets for something that was never going to exist. But look that probably if you come from the Donald Trump school of no, publicity is bad, publicity that could have not been better for both of those documentaries. Well, I think. Almost set to could do something because it was who was a smaller service. This is the project was didn't they didn't announce a state that was kind of their. Guerrilla tactics to release. Nobody knew that when that was coming out. Who had their own country. But Netflix announced the solid beta. So there's. Who just dropped out of nowhere. Well, I think they did the right thing in retrospect, Scott Tobias from the ringer dot com. Scott, thanks so much. And we'll we'll see if people are inspired to see these docs. But again, I'd say, and I was asking this question last week. Do you know where you can find American movie is it up on I tunes? It's yeah. I think it's it's you can rentable in on most of the most of the digital services. If you wanna see a groundbreaking Docker, just something really interesting, go check it out, Scott. Thanks so much. I appreciate it. All right. Thanks. I want to go over one more thing, that's entertainment and crime-related before it gets to the the end of the hour here in our cut of the day because there's an update on jussie smollet, the gay black actor who was on empire, and he did a concert where he addressed the hate crimes. Even some audio about this the questions last week instill we're at this point on Monday. I had Rafer Weigel on my show. He used to be here in Saint Louis at FOX two. He is now up at FOX thirty two in Chicago, and he's been raising laws. Why isn't not him? He's reporting on some of the questions that people have sort of had about this particular crime. So he does a concert over the weekend and says he's okay says there's a lot of stuff about me. That's absolutely not true. I have so much audio in here today. It's kind of hard to find it. But I know that I had audio of this to Jesse small out here. He is at this concert. He's a musician too and an actor Bruce. But my.

Since nineteen ninety nine Don Panos came to us and said, hey, I have basically aluminum version of short tech version of your Cup engine, and I'm racing in the series and I want to go to the mall. Would you guys be interested in doing it and Ford help with that? Yeah. And so that was our first look at fuel injection and and this engine and going racing Lama. And we've been involved with that every since when Jim France change the M-series over to the DP cars we, we were at that I went with multi Matic and. In two thousand three ever leaf and and we've had a lot of success. You know, winning the Rolex twenty four four times now, Mike shank, and then with Chip Ganassi with the DP car and the and the Ford GT is something really proud of. And then then ultimately going back to the Ma fifty years after Ford beat Ferrari. And that classic battle the very first year in a no pressure, right, right. That was two years ago in two thousand sixteen twenty sixteen. Yeah. So Edsel Ford is awesome. And what a great guy and the Ford family so passionate about about racing, but but it was a big decision for them to go back Edsel. Was there fifty years ago with his dad? He was a teenager at that time. He knows the significance of that race, the stage and to make it to go back was a big, big deal. But you know, it's like his dad said, it's just win as edsels were is just went said no pressure. A few years later I year, you know, and but the but the brilliance of the decision is we, we enter the eco boost engine, the twin. Turbo v six. That's in the Ford cars on the street. We race that which can ASI two years ahead of that. And so we got through the growing pains early days of that engine and one Lama which was which was just awesome. But we have a facility that just concentrates on the road racing as well. The GTL am with the Ford GT and all the Ford Mustangs with GT four series.
