# 79 - Widows / Wildlife / Shame
And movies today. The Davis is planning a heist in Steve mcqueen's crime, thriller widows, no one thinks we had the balsa pull this off actor Paul Dana makes direct to'real debut with wildlife starring Carey mulligan, Jason hall and thirty four. Doesn't seem like the wrong age and film clip. It's back to Steve McQueen as we revisit his second feature the sex addicts counter study shame. If you had a choice to live in the past or the future, and you could be anything you wanted to be would you all coming up in truth and movies? A little white lies podcast. Yes, it's Mike alita here back in the host chair after a few weeks away. Thank you to Nick Duncombe for hosting the last few weeks, and I'm sitting across from a veritable crack team little allies contributes his head David Jenkins, and Sophie Calvin. Hey, welcome. So I've been waiting for few weeks. David Wahdan missed analyst white lines. World you missed. Indeed so much happier. Whirlwind of fun and frolics probably one thing that to mention is the our podcast listeners might not know that we also make magazine which comes out in shops. And our new issue is out. Now, she seventy seven, and it's inspired by the film, Roma which is the new movie by funds Acquarone who did gravity and children of men and the only good Harry Potter film. So yeah, have a look at that one Roman. The film comes out just before Christmas is a net fix film. So. Shoot the at Koran. Yes, he hey, I is one to maybe try and see in the cinema and Netflix. It's a very cinematic film. Uh-huh. It feels like, you know, we're like thing people to see the cinema because everyone who says that as if every phone these species cinema, but this one really repays that surround sound and that he'd screen Dobie at moss is the way to go. I mean, this this is awful, isn't it? We like saying make sure you you know, platinum go play feel Ford Fiesta. If you see if you take one hectoring film critic to face value than going to this one of the film critics make no difference. It's a little lies in shops. Now or online online, the rush, you don't get it. So do you have any news to bring me speaking? It's funny that you ask Vick is if he knew the antiquated. Yes, if we'd had a conversation earlier, and this wasn't entirely for Taylor. But this is dangerous ground. I'm heading. I say I am proud to be one of three authors to have written and book. Everything's it's a collaboration between lays and HarperCollins. And we out this series close ups, and hopefully, it's the beginning a long running series, but my contribution to this first batch of three is Wes Anderson, and my Lord, I sweated my soul into that. It's not that's not to her image. Yeah. I very proud of it. I did the Pacific in its blood lead. And David editor am I could have done it without him. Anyway, that and the other two which by mau- cash and Charles Esco available from November fifteenth, which is a Thursday, I believe and the other two on New York, movies and vampire movies had. So there's a spread all all cinemas there. Basically these three books. From New York and westbound us. Yeah. And that's online little white lies dot com yet you can get it from the shop onto the website and other monolithic, broken mortar online outlets. So before the podcast and Twitter. These things called shops. Exactly, magazines and books is on something called paper. So great fantastic. Let's go back to this week's. Say never show other people's products. They're in cinemas this week. I up we have Steve McQueen with widows. A Bank heist goes wrong. And it's up to the cruise grieving wives to finish the job in this new film from director Steve McQueen based on the TV series created by Linda, the plants. Feel davis. Leads this unlikely gang joined by the likes of Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth DeBakey and newcomers Cynthia reveal here's a clip in which posse runs through the plan. I'll go three days the night that the debate. All about work is with nothing. If we don't move this money in fast the notebook says finally in dollars. That's exactly the amount of money mulligan was accused of taking commission kickbacks. So the here we have two million dollars twenty up aware boxes each box one hundred thousand dollars one hundred dollar bills. It was forty four pounds over here. We have two million dollars forty Tupperware boxes. Each box has fifty thousand dollars and fifty dollar bills. It was eighty eight pounds feel like I'm in school. Tell me about it. We got to start thinking with professionals. We're in business together. There's gonna be some cozy reunion after this job with done. We have three days to look in move. Like a team of men. The best thing we have going for is being we are why. Because no one thinks we had the balsa pull this off. The question is do we have the balls to pull off this review of widows? Sophie, Steve McQueen, director of summer noun hunger. Shame twelve years a slave now widows excited, I was I'm a huge Steve MacLean fan as we will get on T when we enter foam club. And so I was excited for as I mean that cost is stunning. And it really was no a film that contained why love about Steve McQueen, which isn't to say that. I didn't enjoy the film which very much did. But it's he's doing something different here. You know, those three films his three foams very hog cool out house. I mean, you could describe them as a historic who. I could a character study in the historical epic character study, they really feel like they're rating, discreet, jumbos where is days is heist. Maybe if you wanted to incur wrath of people, you could call it an elevated heist movie. Steve McQueen recently gave it into to the independent. He complained that may occur ticks didn't get it. They didn't get the element. How women coming together? And how he was therefore able to cost actresses that. Don't usually get such billing, and yeah, the element is in there. But I think it's a kind of a dog whistle cinema. And if you allow me to unpack what that means is like that works on one level as a kind of strange film. But then for people who maybe more clued into the subtleties of the issues. It's another film site for me. I which would as I really enjoyed it. As a piece of filmmaking apart from now, Steve McQueen, he knows how to make images flow. He's got this team of what with him across all heads for film cemetery official and Bobby edited Joe worker, he just makes phones pleasure to watch. And I really enjoyed widows, but I didn't necessarily get a big political impact statement from it even know within it there is a racial politics gender. Police takes the look to me it was really enjoyable. New germ Arabi was this enjoyable David or explains for these social fabric themes that are in there as well agree. What you're saying that I think one of the things the film is trying to do is trying to be this big enjoyable multiplayer genre film, but it's also trying to have all this kind of political undercurrent as well, you know, which includes the costing which is, you know, GE gender reversal of what we kind of take the kind of traditional heist movie, which is a male dominated John. And he wanted the kind of fun. Hi, Stella men men, the only really name check or just, you know, touch upon very slightly some of this political undercurrents, there's a a very small element that looks at the idea of racial, profiling by police and police brutality, and is done is almost aside. And it almost feels like a weird thing to kinda crowbar into the film reconnect to anything else in the film is his own little kind of. Oh, I just want to name check police brutality air Isabella side. Is a strange one. I mean, Steve McQueen, you know, his career began as a celebrated artists visual artists did video Conforto graffiti and won many, many prizes, and then he made this film hunger, which almost felt like a transitional work between on cinema is a very kind of you know, almost over ambient take on hunger strikes. What's the guy called Isabel signs, of course? Yeah. And it seems to me like with shame in twelve years a slave. He's kind of edged ever closer to a more kind of mainstream. Hollywood I'ts cinema with twelve years a slave. He kind of almost got that kind of mid point by being kind of embraced by the academy. It almost feels like if he were to continue on the judiciary. He's taken with does the the next film. He would be making would be like a marvel movie because every time he's of taking a big by the cherry is almost as a character in the film played by Colin Farrell who is the who is of corrupt. Politico who you know, you may think at one time he was kind of down with people, and you know, really genuine about what he was doing. But now the the lure of of money and wealth and being able to take advantage of his position as of increasingly got too much for him. And that's kind of whether the hi Stella of the film comes in. We should say they he's great at sketching characters laid the number of performances in. It's maybe it's fun and chewy and you've got robot Deval literally spitting in one scene. He so mad and Daniela. He must be from planes. Very sympathetic victim in out in this film is a one eight he is terrifying. Every time he's on screen. He phase Cantacuzino tem. And that is I running you not love Danieli ear and this. Hey reminded me of Anton sugar in in country, quiet menace. He's gone that kind of there's a scene in. The beginning where there were these two light kind of flunkies who like mucked up, and he's of he's basically cat-and-mouse seeing them in. It's just absolute terror and the widows themselves, so you mentioned that Stephen was giving tune see with us to cast people in lead roles. He probably wouldn't have rows. Viola Davis being somebody who on MTV world is huge. But still hasn't had that breakout mainstream Hollywood role. How is she in this? Oh, she's she's the center of gravity. She's got this regal place. So the film opens I think is the first show. It's a a good save you shop of her imbed with Liam Niessen and say from the off she's put trade is this sensual figure, and then instantly you get this heist gun run dispatches, her husband and three other husbands. And then she's menaced by the Jamal who is fighting column. Ferrall. This position of oh demon. She's a character under a low of Giresse, and she maintains steely dignity. She's great. I mean, we should talk about the woman ses, by the way is actresses which across the board. Fantastic. Elizabeth Debbie key is very touching. She's a actress who recently within the tail in that played at hideous character in this sheep is very sympathetic character. He is trying to really cruel away from the row of domestic abuse victim for out the whole film. She's just used to being kicked. That's the row. She's accustomed to and how our Imos hell earning stand up for south, and she used that with so much poignancy and yet Michelle Rodriguez heck, carrot has a little bit less range, but she still a pleasure to watch. And then Cynthia river is a revelation Cynthia, right? It's going gonna have an amazing career. She was already in bad times of our L. She and Jeff bridges, and that film ready carried it. And this she gets roped ten with the widows to be a getaway driver, and there's a great scene of working out. And she she just this real code physical presence favorite show of the film inch the guy just. Yeah. There's an amazing bit with Cynthia Riva character scoping out a house for that for the eventual heist. Just watching her run is just poetry in motion is incredible. And there's a bit what she kind of hops up onto this bike rack and thing and she's got this cat like prowess. And I was just thinking kill killed see her and their own like action movies, which is gonna be in Cassie lemons new foam Harriet, Tubman, she's gonna be Harriet Tubman. Wow. So you already quite a crew. Absolutely. Yeah. It's interesting running in that. I mean, probably. Yeah. So we have quite a mix. Here. We have the John relevant to heist movie for you. We have this idea of these character arcs on social themes is an enjoyable nice of the movies, David one thing to add actually like just going back to are saying about these little name checks. They want one of the things that I think is is really good about the film is there were these little kind of character moments. He kind of pushes in there. Just really nice. I mean, maybe so going back to the fact that the nuclear characters Kujat timber. There's a scene where with of what ching him. He's he's kind of in a car watching the widows go about their business. He's learning Spanish on the lots the little tiny little details in the background even there's a bit where they go into a bar. And there's like Michael Jackson's you wrote my world playing in the background, and it just seems like a very strange choice of kind of soundtrack choice. But it's the small choices in the background have a real impact of their the things that make it feel like maybe the ten. Play is very kind of timeworn burn a lot of thought has actually gone into of shaking some knee life, something that surprised me speaking these small details. Oh, pack grantee has come to the foreground does a scene stealing dog in this movie. Feel Davis has and it's a film, you know, either as a high thriller, or as a social drama, you wouldn't make space for a really cute puppy, would you? So for us every action their dog work here. Yeah. Thank you so much for bringing the dog to the for because I think David Noida forgot a travesty. We had fun took deficit yet. I mean, it's an adorable dog, and it has a very tense climax of the I went spoil it. But let's bring us home for some scores in patient enjoyments in retrospect, David Alcon. I for me, I really didn't like a film this year called oceans eight and this to me, I was hoping that it would be the kind of antidote to oceans eight. And so, yeah, maybe say, it was a foreign anticipation because you know, it it got really good reviews from its festival run. And Steve McQueen. It's got all these great actors actresses in it, and then I'd say probably enjoyment. It's a kind of very high three like I thought the the plotting itself. Sometimes a little bit rushed. And there's if there's a few bits that feel like kind of paste together just to get to the next point to the next scene and yet. The that's of hampered mind a little bit. So is kind of maybe let four four three four three. Sophie, that's exactly the same as mine. Even the it was somewhat anti-climate to me as a huge Steve MacLean. Stan I still have nothing but admiration for the way, he blends these elements, and does I enjoy ably as you put it out, Michael there's so much going on and he manages to weave together these issues. These themes these details these characters will be performances, and it's a pleasure to which craft assembled in Manas. So it would be a four for enjoyment. Then a three just because it didn't stay with me. Like, it's other three films. Did dairy rank though Steve McQueen movies as Steve McQueen STAN say, they're investor at create anticipation who wasn't it helps book say full widows three hunger to twelve years slave and one shame. Well, more on that later, but that was widows in. This weekend was now. In fact, I believe it had to choose release. So you might have already seen it less note. You think at the truth the movies, I'm Twitter or the twice dot com slash podcast page up next. We have wildlife. So in nineteen sixties Montana. A family is thrown into crisis. When dad Jerry played by Jay, JoAnne hall, loses. His job leaving his wife. Janette Carey mulligan and son Joe to pull up the slack, Paul deneau. From though, we blurred prisoners atoll is in the director's chair dancing. Richard Ford's novel of the same name in collaboration with his partner. So because on here's a clip. Name. If you thought about it. Because of his plane Joe could be anyone of that name. I suppose. Ginette? Whenever like that seemed like a waitress name. What would you rather be called? Well. I used to be a singer name Lodden. A would that? I like Janette. You have to like me the way I am. Anyway, I guess at my age, I don't choice. How old are you? On thirty four. Does that seem like the wrong age? You like it better. If I said it was fifty. Thirty four. All right. All right. With the sage forever. So don't get used to it carry Milligan at oxen bold there from wildlife, so David the director area, Paul Daino actor of some renown of the is were you excited by battering down the doors to see this? Of course, they know in the I'm probably not excited. It's red to be the I'm going to be excited by a film directed by actor. I mean that that's maybe sounds like an awful sweeping statement and trashing a lot of hopes and dreams for people. You only have to cost your mind back to Tom Hanks, Larry Crowne to remember the horror of when when of basically give it as of little side ports about nothing. You do. Yeah. That was quite nice film. Wasn't it? I think it's a film that if it had the all the credits taken off it, and you were seeing in a kind of immersion chamber situation, which kind of like what scenarios I think, you could probably guess and someone's. TD think this film was directed by actor. I think most people say yes why? It's a very actively film. I think the ninety percent of the of the energy has done to wards these kind of very big court show performances Carrie mulligan, as the mother Jeanette, she's a very sort of big Brosse performance. She's initially shown as this of demeer housewife husband, Jerry, who is this kind of cliche. Prideful patriarch who is humiliated. Jovan a golf course. And when they when they ask him back. He's like, no, I don't wanna do that. And instead takes a job fighting a wildfire in the in the planes in Montana, and there's this idea that he's kind of risking his life. And I think initially you're asking questions about why would he do that? Why would he sacrifices family life? What he not go back to this job this safe job and have his family to be within. There is this kind of pride and shame element of war. I have to be the guy who provides for my family. In the film takes this other angle where it's like, well, if he's doing that, what would the mother then get to do, you know is she thinking, well, I should be ashamed that he's going to be dead now. So do I need to start thinking thinking very seriously about what I need to do to provide for my son to make his life happy. And I think it's a film about like thinking about people in how they provide for other people in the family. What that what being in a family means? And I think on that level. It does are some, you know, some big interesting questions about family dynamics. But it just doesn't do. So in that exciting away. There was never a point where I was like, you know, he'll release of lock to the screen. She was more bored with than really kind of excited by say. So so where do you land on the board excited that sheepish about being bird? Yes. It's a like a fell, and it feels a little bit like kicking that sweet little Doug Livia. I wish I liked it more treaty. It's very interesting setup. It subverts this classical image of nuclear family dad's provider mum's the perfect housewife. And they've got this path at corn fan little trialled site. I think it's interesting on a thin Matic level kit's. It's like what happens when that dynamic implants and people start behaving in a way that is not in keeping with stereotypical behaviors associated with those rows. That's really interesting on paper. It just the me. What kills it a bit? Is it doesn't seem to have much of a pose? It has his very long scenes, and they just so have ambled along despite sin, quite dramatic performances. They suffer through a kind of stasis. It's is what? I was watching who miss like beating myself up like try it harder to enjoy this safely. These big themes here. Why don't you enjoy? The big theme safely. You're bad person. I totally agree though. That is a film is almost obsessed by some big themes. I mean, a film that I was thinking of when I was watching. This was was good in the whale, which which is another divorce drama, which we don't film club, many, many moons. But that film has so much texture is all about looking at characters and how they react to a situation where this film is just the situation is like every line every situation is somehow very kind of carefully neatly keyed back into like a what what is that? You know, it's all about this win the family is breaking down. Then this is you think about this the adults involved. Joe he hasn't. Yes. A girlfriend character. And it's like absolutely I propose nothing. She's only a handful of scenes just there. When he needs someone else to talk to to my bed, girl. I did interview Putina and sorry Kazan. And they absolutely lovely. FM critic is under any obligation to be affected by those Patrie. Thanks evasion connections. But they were talking about the way they made it, and it seems like they were a load more scenes that were in it. And the way they decided what would stay can expect to what you were saying that about how everything's quite deliberate. It was like will this scene reflect on the family dynamic? So it was seems to be less about letting things go in and kind of like well direction, according to an impetus more about like carefully, adding another color, another color, another color and Saudi e sacrifice. When you can that way. Is this energy is kind of lackluster hearing that makes me really wanna see the film made from the scenes that they excised. You just wanna watch people's lives. And like you want us to guess how they're feeling and the wants a mystery there. I just don't think this is a film with any real like at the emotions are there on the screen in every scene all myself screaming, and yeah, I almost want it to be a little bit more of a kind of fan dance and having to like try, and you know. Joe's character is like, you know, he's got this kind of rob in headlights look throughout the entire film. And you at least want him to have some kind of confusion of the situation. But even. You can see him being confused rather than feeling being with him on that kind of having that dilemma about what is going to do. You know, I have nothing, but kind of admiration for the makers and the and the actors, but there's a kind of spark missing, it's this actors, clearly, actor and director Chaz and access film. Formats, Phil maybe of the formerly stood. Sophie, see, I would like to see Carey Mulligan's Ginette in it different contexts. She does a good women on the verge time the elements like David says, she starts system euro housewife, and then she flips. And because there is the film is composed and exacting. You don't really get the sense of the stakes of the danger of the peril foot. What it means women to be out of control in the way that she is. So I think performances great, but it's not necessarily supported by the rest of. The elements of the film. Jake gillen performance wasn't really that for that one. Interesting. You have to actress care Milligan on Jalen hall, both define clearly on their careers by teenager roles Darko and an education now playing these adults at a time where it was hard to be novel. The they're only a few years older than a rebel without a cause type youth. You know, she's thirty four in nineteen sixty. She says she dropped out of college to have a baby teenage son. Now, you can see the interest air is being that specific sorta character nuts Pacific time. I think actually that's one of the most interesting things about the film is the age gap between mother and son is clearly tiny, Carrie mulligan, still looks very youthful actually seeing them interact. You could almost imagine them as like brother and sister, you know, because the gap isn't that big? But on the other hand, if feels I quite. Tonight. Did you get the sense of the film was saying like, hey kids? Wait don't have a kid when you to young because you won't understand what it means and grew in the rest of your life, and you'll you'll be in some like track towels in some nowhere town and having to do like menial labor to buy light tens of beans. Dave. Did you ask bullet Paul and Zoe question, I should have done. That scene that we heard was that was the scene where it was like, I read that is basically saying you shouldn't be here. You know, you kind of ruined my life. I don't know. Scene. Mystified me. Actually, I wasn't quite sure why it was there. So yeah. Maybe you're a street is the correct one less person scores on on wildlife. Then Sophie, I will come see I in anticipation enjoyments in righteous banks. I actually wasn't very excited about it. Despite the good release three enjoyment. Three in retrospect, three. David. I the same maybe. Yeah. Yeah. Threes threes across the board. I think I think there's enough goodwill there, and there's enough ideas in there. I just add another ill thing I've seen the film is is visually. Not very interesting tools. Oh, I just hope that next time with Paul Dana next film. If each is go in that direction that is something a little bit more visually. Interesting. Can we give a little show out to their previous collaboration that we Kazan vote ruby spot both at today? And that is a fantastic dynamic interesting film about a writer. He writes, his dream go down and she comes to life. But then he can control how at his typewriter, and it's really fascinating and dark expiration of gender. Power dynamics. Maybe it's because I'm director next collaboration. Can I give it very quick shouted Zoe Kazan as well? 'cause she's in another film this week. Which is the new cone brothers, Phil ballot BUSTER Scruggs, and I think that her. Performance in that film is absolutely astonishing. It's sort of an anthology move you've many shorts and she's in one called the gal that got rattled the called. And she's gal and that she is really amazing performance. Really like, I love that films by dulling that particular route they tend to take and I thought in that section the way conclude due to her performance that was one of the saddest things I've ever seen him that films. Yeah. So that's on Netflix this weekend in cinemas as well. But yeah, it's just named Chet that little element of it. Yes. Six films. Lots of big names. Totally it's covering the whole gamut of the western tradition. He is kind of like western toll tales very much with catching. And the big question is how you ever moved to tears back home for this movie on a postcard Davey wrong. Prove me wrong. Well, that was wildlife we're gonna stick with American note the film clip with shame. If you had a choice to live in the past of the future could be anything you wanted to be would you? Would you be? Well, I always wanted to be musicians sixties. Musician. Sixties tough though, I thought give me shelter recently. You know, the Rolling Stones documentary like hell. The last place. I want be. Chaos. So where would you what would you wanna be? Here now. That's boring. Michael fast there as a sex addict, whose Catholic calibrated lifestyles upset when his sister co Milligan makes unexpected visit back in two thousand twelve Adam would of this parish called shame raw elegance and uncompromising. But how does it hold up here now and more importantly, what do the listeners think David Millicent Thomas? I love this movie all caps. I did my final level film. Studies essay on the human body and Steve's then just in three movies dissect to endlessly in love it more and every watch mcqueen's absolute best for me was stunned in my seat when it was overspill bunny stuff. That's by Scott j Davis. I read one more Nikolay the rest, you can do the big one in the end. Dan Bullock, as well as being complete care to share intimate intensity. I also next Tim mckenry to watch it. No, one looked each other in the eyes when it finished great topic for modern Phil muddied by misguided siblings. Story that derails the Phil gives into clumsy sentimentalism says Stewart field got Wordsley last year. It was disappointing. The brother sister dynamic didn't add to the picture. And although it was clearly showing the main character is in a lot of pain that didn't seem to be enough on the screen allow onto no him more. Netflix empathize with him. Mark fairhurst. Finally, this is everybody's favorite Clement because children his dick is huge says Valentine manically. We can't argue with that one boy can argue how shame. So we know what you think of this movie, David is you Steve McQueen, and and elsewhere, can I tell you a little story about my rewatch. I found myself yesterday in Copenhagen airport in the waiting room watching Shane when my laptop. Behind me had my back to a glass wall. And the people coming off the plane, we're kind of walking past that. So I knew I think I suspected they could probably see what I was watching. But then in front of me about two meters. There was this kind of large gentleman who just was looking at me looking at the film, and it was a very strange situation because I was like. I had to keep checking the my headphones. Keep taking my headphones off playing the film's. It felt everyone could hear what I was doing. And I felt shame. That was a little a little fun way to rewards the film in airport lounge. I remember seeing this from the London Film Festival and not really digging that much and I was a bit nervous to come back and and see again. And you know, I think so fishy go I and is about it. And then maybe I can solve respond hit. It Sophie festival. I hope my hands at this difficult firm, and I think is difficulties part of what makes it great late to counter. What Mark said about how they didn't seem to be enough. Unscreened allowance him on empathize them. This is the absolute opposite ever fell where troubled character. Has lots of exposition about what that troubled where I go to see a friend or therapist, and they talk about a half and be happy for C happened. The whole point is there's no context for his sex addiction for his trouble for his trauma for the way. He lives his life is kind of presented without comment, and what you get. Instead of that context is brutal and immersive depiction of what it's like to be stuck in itself destructive spiral, and he goes in sacco's, this takes place across three days, and the clip that we listen to that represents the pinnacle of him attempting to have a human connection. He tries to go on a date with a worker, but the rest of the time he just can't really relate to people, and he's got this pristine apartment, he's got this well-paid at exact job. He's well dressed. He's handsome. He's got these trappings of materially successful life. But he's utterly alone. And he's a mess and this. On their debunks, the idea that that's what you need for happiness for good life by showing actually you can have a terrible life with those things and it also Shays. So his sister comes to stay played by Carey mulligan, and she's kind of the opposite. She's just this tornado. And she likes warmth connection. No, the stuffy count give and say what this show is is that if you can't care of yourself, you don't care for other people. I mean, this is me talking about the message of it in the Matic's, basically like Steve mcqueen's films is is beautifully composed and flows. And soon as I can. It's almost like an upper like very brew to upper because everything about its code nece is offset Innis beautiful elegant craft Harry Escott school is using the go beg variations alert and it's seat. Mcleans best soundtrack with Sheikh on there. And for me. I have watched it five times and only gets better better and for me a market treaty. Great villains. Each time you watch it Gieszi something different. And to me. That's how it works. Every time. It's a different movie for me, David. So the film opens on the shot of there's a lack of mirrors to widows in this film because there is there's obviously running so side on running show in widows, and there's a famous side of Brandon running through New York one night, and they pretty much open on the same shot. Don't they the birds? I shove of a personal Abed interesting. I fell right that that opening shot, you have a spender and he's got the sheet covering. Just just about you know, you one more inch down in you. He'd be little colder say he's giving this kind of golden expression, like he's just had some so of listless interaction with someone and all the, you know, he's bored. He's he's been sept- his spirit, and he's he's got this apartment any and again he and violet Davis seemed to be living in the same apartment. This very Spartan white all very little decor is all kind of function is an interesting openshaw. Is you know, you introduce this character. Really, well, and I almost feel that like, you don't really need any more of the film, like I think he kind of get everything in that one shot like he's it's of tells you about the character, and then just of gives variations on on that kind of spiritual. Loyd. I don't know. Maybe maybe you want to respond to this didn't say anything specific about sex addiction is a very broad film about addiction in general. And it's like it does make you antisocial, and it gives you these demons, and it makes you judge mental of the people as well. And it was hard to take anything more than that faith. I feel the film works in these very broad strokes. To go into cardiac arrest. Okay. Maybe that it's quite conservative films. Well, in the same way, like the it's very anti is a film about how all these things about V. Maybe this is something of other people could read this inference that him taking on this life that is focused on sex and pleasures of the flesh. I guess is the thing that's ruining him is the thing is making a miscarriage avoid the if he were able to embrace normalcy. Then he would be a happy person if he were and he would be like understand, you know, you'll be to feel things and emotions, and I think the end of the film where he gets this kind of rude awakening about what means to be giving up this connection to other people if those Pat way of saying he's gonna be alright kids. But wow. This many counts for one. It doesn't end not ends where it begins, and it seems like he's learned nothing actually coach yesterday run. You've got that wrong that ending room and the point of it wrong from the off we can dismiss that. Don't see him the train the end at least open. It's very open end. It's not a patent. Orca Pat, either. I think that the normalcy. The tries to is a false flag. His is his breakdown though is very kind of. I it seems to just be like, well, it was the release that we were just inevitably waiting for almost enduring kgon. Okay. So second of all I really want to come in describing it as like a Pap and brood addiction narrative. I think we get a lot of addiction stories the very performance-based enabled acted to go off and the delicate refinement of that pain, and we get hardly any stories about the shape. Addiction made what it means to be could in these behavioral compulsions that you can't really free of. And that's shame is for me. It's shape, and is actually a circle of a movie and within that circle that takes place across three days. You see him wrestling with this thing, and I'm gonna hold my hands up and say where my perspective comes from. I had eaten disorder for early time. And that has compulsive properties. It's an addiction. But you you are caught in a cycle of behaviors that you can see how the damaging your life. But you're just trapped in them. And I've never seen a film represent how that views as well. A shame and people who liked the film a lot of them talk about his his kind of very unsympathetic performance when you are enslaved by a certain type of behavior. It does drain you of your humanity. And I think it's a it's a really. Bowed. Compelling portray lavar, and I understand that it's pudding. But for me, it just incredibly truthful and the detailed Steve mcqueen's customer detailing is for me, the dramatic counterweight to this very minimalist central forms by Michael bender, very powerful point marines. You wrote a piece teasing some of these themes. Didn't you thank you to put down on the discussion now running out of time, but we should probably plug it piece. Thank you the role and shame and blame you and particular. So that we should do know where where was it again?

It. You got it. Cardi B's publicist confronts woman. Yelling. No wonder your husband left you. Yeah. We're gonna talk about this a while. Carting sitting on the stage. Looking great Cardi, B appreciates the way publicist handled the hostile situation in Sydney, Australia. If I learned anything about Cardi B this afternoon is that she has a loyal team doing her bidding a prime example of this loyalty occurred this weekend while Cardi B's, an her publicist in her body got passing through an airport terminal sitting Sydney, Australia, then out of nowhere woman who was passively refused. The photo op yells out. No wonder your husband left you as Cardi B contained to cloak self. With the pullover sweater as you, and I saw this video priceless. Carnaby's publicist decides to engage with the woman sit up letting the ru comment whether an empty space patients foster, publishers publicists gets right up to her mug and gives her the square biz B I'll smack the crap out of you. She yields back with with an itches of her face to ever come out your mouth about her mother. Loving husband watch your mouth. Though, I sense loyalty and patients fosters actions, not everyone on the internet was to please with her. We actually outburst especially the liberal stronghold on Twitter. But with an hours of watching these opinions built from ground zero Cardi B jumped onto Instagram to voice her approval with patients patience is handling of the situation. Foul by second video posting where she reiterated her stance on Celebi life remains unchanged. You need to your situation. Like this person that person, bro. That's not me quote from Cardi B on Instagram. She sent on behalf of patients and the values they both shared like sometimes, I don't even feel like I'm celebrity 'cause the standards and the way y'all expect these celebrities to act that's not me mother lover sensor. So I and foremost. Okay. Yeah. That's the first time we ever saw publishes flash on somebody. I get that. And it's newsworthy. But understand something. There's a sense of entitlement here. That's disturbing. Okay. No celebrity is required to take a picture with you or the sound your autograph. You know? That's not a right that you have. That's a professional courtesy that they don't have to offer you. So for this woman. Australia to say, no wonder why your husband left you. She's lucky. She didn't get punched in the face. By Cardi B. So the thing is. Yeah. I get the publicist flashed on that. We've never seen that before. And she's very protective. But at the same time, you know, you can't demand a celebrity take a picture with you and sign your autograph. It it doesn't work that way. They're human beings to and just because somebody doesn't do something that you think they should do. You don't know Carney becoming she could have been having a bad day. You don't know she could have been feeling sick. You don't know. But my thing is you don't insult somebody because they don't do what you think you're entitled to so that's disturbing. But the look on that lady's face when the publicist went after her was priceless. The fear that she had. I think she'll think next time I think she think twice about and salting a celebrity comes to airport or because someone take a picture with them. You know, she would have been better off just getting on Instagram, or whatever social media and say, hey, you know, what was. Going on with all that. I mean, but ten sought somebody into go personal because they will take a picture. That's that's just not nice. So yeah. People can criticise the publicist I get that. But like, I said, you know, this is definitely someone who takes her client very seriously and is very protective. So and I get that. And another lesson that you learn you don't know who you meeting, you don't know who you're talking to. And what I mean when I say that is that there are other people who would have gone further than what the publicist did. So you need to be careful how you conduct yourself in public in. That's just for human beings in general, just saying. Okay. I'm done with that. But it's a good story. And yeah, you want to see that. Radio. You want to see that video house like well there it is. Yeah. Don't start those star commented on people's in their marriage. Don't especially you don't know them. Don't don't don't do it. Do it. And in more entertainment news the punisher season. Two teases teaser drafts. Online along with release date for Netflix villains will be punished. The punisher is one of the last marva shell standing on that flicks. After the streaming giant cancelled iron fist, Luke cage, and they're double. What's that all about fans began to see a trend, the punisher and Jessica Jones days, or Netflix may be numbered.

And if you weeks excited about that, the tweet has since been scrapped from most America sites. But of course, nothing is truly hidden on the internet. The list does show content that won't become into the American version of Netflix. So they could be incorrect. Still offense note, the Netflix usually releases his marble shows at the same time worldwide. Okay. Now, you go Kevin Spacey's attempt to skip court appearance. The night. Oh, my Ohio.
