‘Richard Jewell’ and Olivia Wilde’s Offensive Portrayal of the Late Journalist Kathy Scruggs
"Brian on your podcast with David Shoemaker. The press box talked a lot about the controversies around Richard Jewel. Let's unpack some of those quickly before we start getting into the nitty gritty of the film Maybe you can help us understand specifically what role. A person named Kathy scruggs plays in this. Yeah she plays a problematic role. I think we should say she was a big figure. In in the coverage of Richard Jewel. She was a co byline on the very first story in this movie she is kind of a suggestion of a character. More than character. Actor probably The big news of courses that they in the movie they suggest or I guess more than just right she sleeps with an FBI agent. Yes after he gives her a tip yes that they are investigating Richard Jewell. Yes it literally say. She does not literally say I will now sleep with you because you have given me this information But that happens in rapid succession in the span of thirty seconds. It's kind of like the trump Ukraine call. Oh it's a quid. Pro Quo don't have to say it. We know what happened. It was a perfect bout of sex for information as trump might say and Olivia Wilde. And I think you're talking about the delivery. Wild has suggested that she was a relationship with this. FBI This is. This is again some reporting that none of us were aware of before this. That's not what's Woodson the movie the movie is high. Sure Gimme some information and I will do you a favor and then the FBI agent played by. Jon Hamm mm says Oh so we are doing this. which would suggest that they were not doing this before the exchange of information? Yeah Yeah So. This controversy has swallowed the movie up in a lot of ways and I did not think that was going to be the case. And over the course of the run up to the release of the Movie Warner Brothers released a statement sort of defying the Atlanta Journal. Constitution's rebuttal of the movie. They were very proactive. In identifying the fact that this is a movie and there is some fictionalization traumatisation happening here. I wanted to talk to you guys especially about what happens when a movie takes liberties like this is generally speaking. For Art's sake. I think we should always be doing doing this. There's the movie should always be stretching and redefining and re imagining and re contextualising these stories to tell better stories that it's not the job of movies to make good journalists. It's the job of journalists to make good journalists but this seems to be a situation where cleese would obviously the director and and grandfather grandfather of this film. hasn't very specific points of view about authority in the media and there is an expectation that he brought a lot of those ideas. Do Do you think that the movie suffered greatly because of this conversation or or is this just something that we talk about on podcast. Because we're all in the media. Dave Weigel political writer had a great tweet where he said all this controversy convinced fenced liberals that they didn't WanNa see Richard Jewel but the controversy wasn't big enough to convince conservatives that they could own the lips by seeing Richard Jewel. So it Kinda put Richard Jewel in this weird have state I'm with you. I'm all for historical fiction and broad license to do it. The exception I would make is in a case like like this because you could have just picked a random person but you picked a real life reporter who's not famous and you're telling the world the one thing you should know about this woman other than that. She broke the story. Initially but Richard Jewel being under investigation by the FBI. She slept with somebody to get the information. So I think if you're going to do that and then take the additional step as wild suggested that this is based in reality this isn't billy ray writing the screenplay allow. Let's make something up you owe it to show your work in some way whether it's an op-ed whether it's an interview or something because this is beyond this is not famous people. Having a conversation in the White House is a real person sue. This is a a very pernicious and well-established trope in movies about female journalists female journalists in movies are always sleeping with the sources which you know I should just go on record in case you you are not as involved in the media as we are. That's not what happens in real life. We're not all sleep with our sources just so you know. That's not allowed. But when I saw this movie. It was a couple days before the the kerfuffle started and I was so shocked. I thought that either I assumed assumed that. This journalist Kathy scruggs portrayed in the movie was not a real person and then when i Google that it was she was I was like okay. Either there is. She wrote a memoir where she literally said. This happened and I did this. And this is how I got the story in my involvement or else she's dead and friends it's option B because otherwise I was like how do you get away away from this with from a liable perspective. It's so blatant. And so and it stands out and the other thing is just it really it. It undermines the movie. I don't understand why you have to do this. Because this is a movie about how the media was responsible will in in and ruining rituals life which is like. That's fact right that is that definitely happened But to put in this seemingly fictionalized or unsubstantiated and like gross comment on a female journalists in the movie undermines all the legitimate if if tricky cases that Clint Eastwood and movie wants to make about the media's role in American politics in life I completely agree with this man was trapped in his home mm-hmm with his mom for eight days while people everyone in America thought he was a terrorist who had set a bomb and blown up people and it wasn't a case of some of these cases of guilt or innocence. Where it's Oh? He was a little bit involved but he wasn't no he was completely innocent. And Somehow you've done this and taking him him he's no longer the sympathetic figure and the journalists who was part of a team with the JC that made mistakes in covering him. And we're not skeptical enough of the government's evidence evidence and case you've turned them into the into the sympathetic figures. I just don't get it at all. It's a bit of a confounding thing I think a lot of journalists are struggling with the movie for the exact reason you mentioned. Amanda which is that I. I think it's actually quite a strong film in one of Clint's best movies and last fifteen years and it's been completely cast aside and a lot of ways not the Clinton needs another successful movie had plenty in his career but it's a movie that metastasized as a lot of ideas that he's fascinated by kind of like libertarianism in the pursuit sort of like a single man's pursuit of success in the face of a lot of people working against him the Atlanta Journal Constitution response to this though. I think has been a little little bit curious. The long piece that they that they published a sort of profile. Kathy's life I think in some ways was very helpful in terms of saving her reputation specifically early about these kinds of allegations but also revealed a person who obviously had a lot of struggles in her life. Who who did some things that are I think just on the page people will look at me like Oh? Maybe she didn't do that but she was that it's Actually like I thought hyper generated new conversation around her life and around the movie Brian. What did you think about? The idea of trying to memorialize is her in. Defend her in the pages of the paper like that. Well I thought one is I think you just want to give her an identity. You know she is she's been. She's not really much character as I said in this movie. Clint Eastwood doesn't really care about the media in this movie. Other than as there's this noise in this thing that's happening Richard. You didn't care about the way that story got written was very interesting actually is a bunch of editors editors and writers kind of putting that together imperfectly as often. Journalism is so they were trying to give her an identity. I think we've Kinda gone now over the falls where we've corrected is using this horrible. Oh stereotype that got into this movie and now we're kind of excusing. What the paper did and all the media did and saying? Oh Her story. I saw held up. No they didn't one guy was innocent and two there were actual mistakes in the peace even in the first piece in the paper together which so. It's totally understandable. Hannibal that the paper wants to do this. But to me at some point it becomes okay. You're giving us one identity. You're telling us the real story behind your life and then there's this conversation about what the media did to Richard Jewell. which is it's actually kind of separate one thing? That's a little lost in the conversation around this. I want to get your perspective on an Amanda is when you're making something let's say you're making a podcast or you're working on a story story or you're making media company every day you're collaborating people. And you're interrogating all of the choices they're making on a regular basis. You have questions about things. The Livia Wild Defense of the character is one of those things where you think that at some point you might ask a question. You might not just presume and I guess that's questioning maybe the integrity of what Olivia while saying the defensive. Her character but movies take a long time even even one day Clinton movies take a long time to make. There's a long time in the making so how. How did how was not not everyone on the same page with this? What am I going to say? Movies do take a long time to make but relatively this was like a very quick movie At least in the filming like this was filmed over the summer of two thousand nineteen and it's December and now we're watching it so that's pretty wild and and it does really seem like Olivia Wilde. Got wanted to takes and it's like go okay. This is the performance going with which is it's it's a caricature I think. It's pretty generous and cruel version of a reporter which is fascinating because Libya while the daughter of journalists so i. I wouldn't say that this is a portrayal of empathy eighty and understanding at least from what I've seen Granted you only get to take her to but she the material is not there on also. Her interpretation of the material is pretty pretty intense but it definitely seems like it wasn't examined at the time and it certainly seems like no one anticipated this and no one got on the same page about their talking points because Libya has been all over the map. And I'm you know what I'm not sympathetic. With the fact that she's answering search for somme choices. I like this movie directed by Clint Eastwood. It's written by Billy Ray. But also she knows what she's doing. She read the

The Politics Behind The Golden Globe Awards
"Welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn. But we're about to hear from John On. He's covered the movie industry for more than two decades as a print reporter and so we figured he's the best person to explain the significance or lack thereof of the Golden Globe awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association today announced the nominees for its annual awards which take place in early January but rather than detail the usual inexplicable explicable nominee choices and snubs. We thought we talk about the relationship between movie fans the Globes and the entertainment industry. I John tells us who makes up the association. What's important to me about the Golden Globes and about some other kind of minor film? Awards is that this is not a representative presentative body. They're about ninety journalists. And if you go on the website for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association you can no longer even find their names teams or where they work. It's a very small group of people and they have undue influence because the movie studios have figured out that if they wou- the voters for the Golden Globes and they're filmmakers win awards at the Golden Globes it kind of create some sort of momentum for the Academy Awards but none none of it is very legitimate and H. MPA has cleaned itself up. It's not a scandal ridden as it has been in years past but this isn't an elite group of film writers or film critics that are making these selections and if you look closely at the selections not just this year but but in past years the fact that they are really that serious ask kind of film. Lovers starts to reveal itself pretty quickly. How so? Well let's talk about a couple of past nominations twenty thirteen. There were three nominations for a movie. I bet you you've never heard of salmon. Fishing in the Yemen amend that was a Golden Globe Walker. If you go back nine years to twenty ten there was a movie with Johnny. Depp called the tourists that was largely largely derided that ended up getting multiple nominations at the Golden Globes. And I think if you look closely at some of the selections this year it's clear it's it's driven by the red carpet like who do they wanna have on the red carpet you look in the TV category. There are multiple nominations for the morning. Show a apple all series. That didn't get great reviews because Jennifer Aniston is coming reese witherspoon is coming as nominees and then you look at Ava d'auvergne as when they see us. One of the most critically acclaimed TV series of the past year didn't get any nominations so it's important for the NBC. Show to have that star Klaus so there's eyeball so so people watch. I think that's part of the bias historically for the Golden Globes that you can say it judging between good filmmaker and a less name they generally are going to vote for the last name and they also have some historical by sees you know that are shared by the Academy in the seventy seven year history of the Globes. Only five women have ever been nominated for best director and this year. There are lots of really good female filmmakers that were up Greta Gerwig for little women. Olivia Wilde for book. SMART Hurrell for honey. Boy Marielle Heller for Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. Not One of them got nominated so golden gloves has a pretty poor history when it comes to nominate women the Golden Globes has made some the effort to try to rehabilitate this reputation. What has it done? It's made sure that people who are members actually have legitimate emmett credits. As journalists there been some reports of. I guess you could call it. Bribery or expensive gifts in the past. I think they've tried I to eliminate all of that so again they have cleaned up their act. But there's only so much legitimacy you can bring to yourself when you're only ninety journalists writing for publications that if we had the names I guarantee you you've probably never heard of them and yet the industry I I guess mostly plays along and an actor or director or studio can use success at the Globes as part of their campaign going into Bosco Bosko season one hundred percent and I think that is one of the most interesting parts of the story. Everybody in Hollywood knows in their soul that at the Golden Globes are really not totally legitimate and yet the studios independent companies and marketing departments. Embrace raise them because they recognize. There's a game to be played and the game is. We're going to court the Golden Globe voters we're going to have screenings and QNA's for them and and if we get a nomination are actor or filmmaker is going to be on their awards show and people are going to start talking about the film and one thing gets the other but they do know that really. It's not totally legit but it serves their purposes academy award. Campaigning is a multi title million dollar business. There are people who work as campaign consultant who get hundreds of thousands of dollars for getting nominations or Oscar wins wins. There is a huge business behind all of this and in some ways it might drive ticket sales or people to stream movies so it's driven by finance finance is driven by trying to get eyeballs on the movies but it's all kind of a hustle so John I've never covered the entertainment industry that closely so so like a lot of people in the public eye really always just saw the Golden Globe awards as the first among that more high profile award shows to spotlight the top films of the year. Going into Oscar seasons am I am I off on that. Were not technically off. I mean because the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Asian nominates into different categories for most of the major film awards they cast a wider net. So just mathematically. They're bound to include lewd a lot of movies. That end up getting nominated. I wouldn't say they're that much of a bellwether but because they're embracing so many movies. They have a a mathematical chance of getting most of those things right. John Horn out in New York. John Thanks for joining us to talk about the Golden Globes. We'll see when you get back. Thanks for sitting. In

Gotham Awards: 'Marriage Story,' 'The Farewell,' 'Uncut Gems' Lead Nominations
"Okay Amanda the Gotham awards what do you know about the Gospel awards they are New York based yes is Gotham is a stand in for New York and uh-huh well done thank you and they are an indie film awards and they always have the ceremony pretty early in the season and their speed teaches are often really vibrant and kind of make some noise that people are usually recapping them are doing videos of the acceptance speeches that's right the nominations are usually driven by journalists and critics whereas the awards themselves are usually chosen by people in the New York Film Community this year's collection of films is sure thing and I think it highlights the New York versus La Aspect of this award show I would say that this is a very good collection of films but not terribly represented of of where Oscar is going to be going this year so let's just mentioned a couple of the categories we can talk about what we see and if any of this really ultimately matters to the big race that we talk about on the show all the time so for best feature Lulu longs farewell The safdie brothers uncut gems trae rituals waves Noah Baumbach marriage story and Lawrence Ghaffari as hustlers now as a human man these are five of my favorite movies of the year you truly love to see you love to see it now Ah I think this list has been somewhat criticized for being the eight twenty four awards share and also Noah Baumbach a former eight hundred four filmmaker himself so there's a lot of lineage there but I don't necessarily I mean I think marriage story is pretty much a lock for best picture and you've got a chance to see it over the weekend so that we may be we can t some of that conversation talk about it but yes these other films I think the farewells probably the one that has been tabbed to have the best chance at best picture but do you see a world in which I guess these early awards shows do more than just you know sort of celebrate the films that we expect to not be recognized come Globes and an Oscar season or or do you think that this is just a forebear to what's coming I think this is probably people sharing their passions for the most part and doesn't shift a lot the only notable storyline in the future category for me as Hustler's being here because that means that people really are taking it seriously as a a capital f film in addition to a great kind unexpected box office hit featuring Jennifer Lopez sue and we talked about that a little bit of the time of Jennifer Lopez seems like an Oscar contender people take it seriously it seemed like the answer to that is yes in some ways yes but on the other hand Jennifer Lopez not nominated for Gotham you know just kind of fascinating what are you going to do with you ran does in the film community I don't know it is people expressing themselves yeah I mean there's a lot of very admirable choices kind of up and down we don't have to run through every single category here I think one thing I like about the Gotham is is that it does a lot of awards that I really wish the Oscars would do for example they have the Bingham Ray breakthrough director award and the nominees here are kind of interesting collection of people couple of films I haven't even seen Lord Clermont on Air am I pronouncing that correctly thank you can Jones's here we had him on the show earlier this year Joe Talbot from the last Bachman in San Francisco also on the show Olivia Wilde this year for book smart and films for burning came which is a film I haven't even seen yet which is yeah been released so that this is sort of like in the spirit of the indie spirits meets the Oscars meets the New York film critics are I tend to think of this award show and I think the award selves our health quite early at the end of this year as opposed to early next year and you'll be able to stream them live on the Internet and you'll get to see some of those acceptance speeches that talking about but it does feel a little bit of a lucky to be here kind of award Andre Holland you're nominated for high flying bird and be pretty surprised Andre Holmes nominated for best actor Best Actress Likewise Mary Kay Place for Diana Elisabeth Moss for her smell these are performances that will be on craigslist MHM maybe on your lists I haven't seen her smile yet I need to do that I will do that before the end of the year I'm saying it in public so that will actually happen and probably how do you feel about being in this moment this period of award season where we're like right at the were at the gates worth the Don excited I think you and I kind of went through a marathon in the last week and so we have seen most everything which is great there are a few outstanding films talk about and there are a few on my list that I haven't seen because they were at festivals and haven't really been screening for critics yet but we've seen a majority of things and I definitely just had a week where I just saw elise and I was like wow cinema I was very moved by a lot of films that I saw and so in that sense I feel hopeful and excited and you're like movies are great we have all the movies and then I started trying to make my Oscar predictions and started thinking about all of the politics and like reading from what Academy voters I had to say and it creeping sense of dread also and anger and resentment started creeping in so I would say it's a complex emotional time for me personally how are you feeling I have the same exact feeling as you and it's for that reason that we have decided at the back half of this show to make predictions make bold reckless quite likely very stupid predict predictions because as you said we've seen almost everything last week you and I got a chance to see the Irishman let me just tell you the Irishman is good. You should see the Irishman you had a chance to see marriage three yes we had a chance to see knives out which I don't think we'll be a part of the awards conversation but which was fantastic it lived up to my hopes and dreams have been screaming about it on a podcast for two months so those to receive we see something else we saw little women little women of course of course little women so all of these movies have now been put in front of us let here's here's a very short list of the movies that neither of us have seen thus more because we've done a pretty good job of doing our homework to this moment but so far we still haven't seen nineteen seventeen seventy four one film we haven't ritual Clint Eastwood's portrait of the man who was accused of the Atlanta Olympics bombing we haven't seen cats it's fine that you put this on this sliced by Mattia cats cats come in cat season is nearly upon us we haven't seen dark waters which I think is going to start screening this week we've not seen star wars episode nine the rise of Skywalker uh-huh I did read a bit of box office prognostication about episode nine today it was kind of kind of kind of grim interesting it was like this will is on track to be the lowest grossing of the sued thus far on its opening weekend maybe it's because everybody knows what's GonNa Happen I read some fan fiction or not some fan fiction no like can we just used to lead them into it yeah I read some fan fiction you know what I read some predictions based on nothing speculation is what I read about Star Wars that was essentially conviction and I got really upset about it I told you about this already we had this conversation with no let's not do that yeah but I don't know it people I it seems like people are interested in what happens I'm interested in what happens was the was it that ray is a rookie was it no it's Ray in Cairo and fuck just like the weight again pure speculation but let me go on record saying I do not want this as the really casual star wars fan who does can't remember the title of Episode Nine Not for me it's not what you want the only other movie I can think of that we haven't seen that is going to be competing this year barring maybe you're frozen to in the atom akara categories clemency which is Alfred movie that premiered at Sundance and has gotten reviews and I it was pointed out to me that there to death row movies this year with just mercy and clemency which is kind of interesting but that's only six movies between the two of US we've done a nice job hopefully we'll have a peaceful December probably not as we go through all of our takes which of these sixty think is most likely to to mess up the the narrative is we're going to break down later in the show I have on the document that I made I have one thousand nine hundred seventeen written several different times with like twenty question marks it was I just I don't know what to do with it. It is obviously a world war one epic with really athletic filmmaker gang directed by Salmon News which is Oscar Bait shot by Roger Deakins which is how you know it really is and they haven't they're releasing the behind the scenes rich of him just like running and trenches they're really leaning into we worked really hard to make us you know and it's a very showy style of directing yes their narrative is the effort yes which is an interesting thing we hear a different version of that with someone like Joaquin Phoenix and his performance in the joker we heard all about how he lost fifty pounds and he contorted his body and he I mean this physical transformation this is the full-scale movie version right of what sacrifices were made to achieve something yes and it's so funny because the the movie is not out for still another three months but I think that's really smart and the reason I have twenty question marks is because is it too late in the Oscar season to kind of really breakthrough because the people haven't seen it and the Oscars season is like a full months earlier this year and then was your so we're in a really crunched situation I think we have learned time and time again that it is harder the later you get in the season more crowded it is it's harder to get people invested in your movie you've just created a wonderful segue for our next segment let's go to stock stock down if it goes bust you can make ten to one twenty

"Obviously, as we've mentioned, you've done, some pretty serious Hollywood projects, and Joe swan Berg local filmmaker Hyun, Chicago. He's famous for shooting ultra low budget movies. He doesn't script them. He just says, hey guys, this is your character sit here. I'm turning on the camera. Go right. Yeah. And did you enjoy working that way? I left it especially because we were drunk, one hundred percent of. I tried to emulate it with book smart with less beer, because we had young people. So let's talk about the movie this isn't the first thing you directed. You've done some short films, but this is your first feature, which is very exciting. One of the things I've read is that it's very intimidating to be a movie director, because even a low budget movie there's a lot of money. There's a lot of people, they're all looking to you to be the leader. Did you have to struggle with? That was tougher. You did you fall naturally into the role pretty naturally, because I've been on I seventeen years, and I was ready to take the reins. You know, I was ready to be the boss. So it wasn't too hard. I enjoyed that part had you been on sets doing all those other projects, you've been doing sitting there, the whole time going debt, I should be in charge increasingly, yes. Yeah. This movie book smart. It's about two young women. They're about to graduate high school. It's also very contemporary if I'm not mistaken. It takes place right now. The spring of twenty nineteen. That's right. And you are to me, a very young person, but you're not that young. So to learn stuff about, like what high school kids are like now. And how they were different when you were graduating high school. Yeah. Basically, they're just a lot better. Now, they're much smarter. They're much cooler. They're much more of their much more fluid. And then I had to learn some of their cool lingo, 'cause I am one hundred thousand years old. And I had to kind of catch up on how they talk and they have cool window like for the longest time. I didn't know what they meant when they were like RAD fit live. And why are they saying, but that means outfit, though, I pass that onto you the word. Broad fit rod fit Brad Pitt man. Did they ever tell you anything that made you think they were just pulling your leg? They were the whole time, but they were very, very kind to me. I have to ask you. This is a movie as given away by the title about two rather brainy girls in high school, who in fact, decide at one point, they haven't had enough fun. They've been so brainy and working so hard was that what you were like in, in high school. I read like the ultimate nerd highschool. Just the nerdy of the nerd, and I would one of them proud to be, but we didn't have fun parties. Everyone else did. And I just wasn't made aware, but. Movie about it. In order to go to the party, I had to cast everyone pay them to be there. So the movie has come out. It's gotten great reviews. I hope a lot of people see it. Let's assume that it is the success that it seems to be what you want to do next. Or you're gonna try to do one of those big superhero movies next that seems to be that progression. Wouldn't that? We've done those big movies you could handle it. I can handle it. I can handle it long as I have, you know, good snacks and loud music I could make it happen. But truly I will say the statistics are pretty grim for female filmmakers. So I say that all of that ladies should step up and start telling stories as much as we possibly can.

"It's interesting that I've noticed, like, like for celebrities talking about politics, ten years ago, at least, but really around ten years ago, it was thought of as being super dangerous, like, remember when it was, like, I don't know if you start web politics like it was very much like shut up and dribble. It was like our version of shot up and dribble now. It's like if you don't have a political opinion. That's a pariah. That's it's flipped. And so while I think, you know, I do love to share information. It's so comforting to see. That that's very normal. Now that everybody's here read these articles inform yourself like this is something, we're all a part of, you know, seeing busy Phillips talk about her abortion, on her show was amazing because like that is so mainstream. And it's so powerful. You're right. Ten years ago that would down would have been told not to do it. And it I so I think, at this point, it's, it's transformed. I think it's because we're in a total national crisis. Like we're all gonna die, very, very soon. So we have to try everything we can well on that note. Thanks so much it. I just wanna know a few, I, I would definitely campaign for you. I hope you, you know that I would be terrible. No. I would be the worst Representative, I wouldn't be good. But I think I'll just direct content for your campaign. You I went to beanies bat mitzvah, what I went to beanies bump mitzvah, because Joan, and I were very close friends, and it was, it was such a fun night. And I know beanie. Well. And I've, she's perfect for this part. Yeah. But the part is at least in the beginning of the movie, there's something, Tracy flick about this character something, something that beanie or any performed director has to overcome. That's right. A certain like unlike ability for women is something that can be very, very scary because there's a tendency to pigeonhole tech, quote unquote, unlikable women as being permanently on, like, yes. How does is that beanie? How do you handle the handicap, the, the character, it was that important to show her in terms of showing her growth, it was all that growth? I knew that we wanted to have kind of the sharpest are for that character in terms of her mind opening to accept others that you would assume that is the two incredibly smart, political intellectual hardworking feminists in the school that they would be the ones who kind of weren't excess. Opted. And yet, it's a story of two girls who sort of a soom that's the case. And then realized that they haven't really been able to see others, particularly beanies character. So we're seeing that before I thought there was a really. That's all of our experience. Like you think about what we're talking about the need for empathy. Yes. How do you how do you overcome some of these obstacles world facing in political, and I think it is acknowledging the universal human qualities and really allowing complexity and nuance and other human beings and in your cell. So a wanted her character to start in such a tightly wound guarded place that we could witness the unwinding we gotta do rapid-fire. We're not rapid fire anything. I know have you been listening. And by the way, feel free to expound. What's your most commonly used emoji, the drool face? Oh, really? Yeah. It's kind of like it's kind of obscene. But it works for everything. The second answer.

So inconsistent like I love the collaboration of, of making movies and telling stories, but for actors, it's like, okay, you come on, after the work has started you come in. You walk onset. You have like a very short period of time to kind of plug in and be creative, then you're asked to leave. Then you come back. Do it for a second. Then you're asked to leave. I mean it's just like on off on off, and that's exhausting. I'd much rather work consistently for eighteen hours than spend four hours total in a trailer wondering if you're going to go back and act, especially on those big jobs. Yeah, it can you hold day. Oh, god. It's off s it's if you're working with certain. People who don't wanna show up. Sometimes hours. But you have so many other as good of an actress as you are.

It sounds like like early childhood weird. And of course, the rest of my family sounds like or did I cover? So I and I'd like for instance last year. My mom ran for congress in Virginia, and I re tweeted her stuffing didn't work. She lost. Sorry, MRs Coburg, but it was really interesting going around. And, and, you know, in rural Virginia hearing, my mom tell people like wolves pronounced Coburn, and it was a brave. She's into the political landscape with a name that it's very tricky. And actually reminded me about hearing Obama speak in two thousand seven and he was like, listen guys, my first name rhymes with Iraq. My middle name is literally Hussein. And my last name rhymes with those Somma. This is not going to be easy. Bless your heart is incredible that he isn't that nutty overcame that, that it just that I know that's what people like he is talk about elect ability. And now that being this kind of dumb issue that we deal with now he was completely unelectable because of the name like forget about the race issue, which was like Dehu beyond that the name and I don't think people appreciate how bad the name Hussein was. That's right. Because now it's like that. Yeah. Now, there's tons of Hussein. Exactly. Yeah. But at it was do you have you had anything to do with do you talk to him ever? Do you have do you bump into Belsen? He I mean now that he's in RBIs miss. It feels funny. It's like oh yeah. Now, you come over to our world, interesting. Yeah. Of course, they are making like the most incredible content. I love that. They're working with Netflix. And it sounds like they're just picking up all the greatest things I think they're going to get picked up. I think. I just want to talk about politics, how you're involved in politics because that's how I met you. Yes. In two thousand eight that's crazy. How involved are you now in and what brought you to that campaign? How did you get involved? Okay. So I grew up in DC, and they're, it's less true now, because of the internet and everything, but as a kid in DC, I feel that you grow up with a little bit more of a organic connection to the political process. Maybe because it's just directly related to lifestyle their media with each administration. New people move into the City New kids at school like a changes the vibe, and your parents were into your, your parents did impressive things you're still are. Okay. And so they were not connected to politics in, in a kind of a typical way. They I mean, obviously they're investigative journalists and workers, bonded, so that it was connected to the political process, but I didn't feel like a connected to an administer. Gratien but I felt growing up in D, maybe because my parents were very informed, and they expect us expected us and still do to be very informed. And so I grew up with a sense of it being a big part of my life, and actually, it's funny because when I was a teenager, and I was like into politics that was considered kinda lame and now yeah. Political awareness club. You're looking at the vice president, of course, Fairfield prep local runners, total sense and only cool kids in my school. Did it? That's what they told you, but now like it truly is much cooler. And I think of the political situation, we've put them in that young people are like, all right. Let's full. Fire? So long story short. I, I was I came to this town in this industry Ardy pretty passionate about politics. And I kind of looked for community here of people who were who were like minded in that way.

Right. My dad's Irish and in the UK as a whole like it's a very common name, and people would pronounce a covert. And then when I'd go back to, you know, like fifth grade Libya. Which I believe is very important thing. You wanna have you wanna name your kids something that's truly embarrassing. It's like boy named sue. Right. You really want to grow up with some this bad to strengthen their character. It's important. It's important to be abused at a young age as you're saying, you're talking. Yes.

Yeah, I like it because it's fun to talk about. But at the time your parents aren't probably like forecasting that cock burn is going to be an issue. No. Because to be fair to my dad like he's not American. So he was well, everyone's going to pronounce it covert. And then and then it is a very a dignified name within the world of journalism. My grandfather was very famous journalist in a activist in my uncles and my debt like there's a, there's a long line of, of impressive journalists disappointed that you haven't you're not carrying on the name publicly anyway. No, actually, there's a bunch of pen, names, within my family, like my, my father's have sister has a she went from kadoi. I forget what her original name was. But she changed it to Caldwell. And then my grandfather went by China held Jake. But I like romantic to have like a gnome diplom- a pen, name that makes you have a kind of artistic, I the pretentious teenager in me was like I want a pen name of sorts and artistic name, and then honestly, what it sounds so nerdy, but I was I was doing a lot of Oscar Wilde plays. And I was I was doing the importance of being earnest. I was laying Gwendolyn I was like sixteen and it was the first time I really felt like I crushed it on stage and I loved doing the play and I was like this is amazing. So I read everything Oscar wrote, I read everything about him, and I was like this is this is the inspiration, I want to carry with me. So started in that very earnest place. If I did that I mind would be Justin Simon because mine was Neil Simon life. First time I felt like I crush it was it was a. I didn't know that, that was where it came from. And then and then with crazy is then, so I changed it. When I turned eighteen I was like this is going to be my, my stage name, and then it very quickly became my name, like I want.

Summer Movie Preview
"The movies of summer twenty nineteen. What is out there? What's going to happen? And I've got to start by saying you think maybe that summer begins on your calendar near the end of June. But not in Hollywood everything in Hollywood begins early because summer is when they make all the money that they can make all year. So officially April twenty six it's the beginning of summer because the movie that opens on that day is called a ventures endgame. This is three hours long. Nobody's gonna care. I predict that not only will this be the biggest box office hit of the summer, but it will be the biggest box office hit of the year. You remember what happened last time all the ventures or at least half of them seem to turn to dust than die mean? Now have those ventures that are left to signing if they can beat the evil fan. He so evil will the adventures be wiped out forever. Look how much money did these movies make I'm saying why would you basically kill the golden goose? This is going to continue in some way, we all know it. So what else is out there? I'm looking at my list. There's a major thing going on now of in terms of taking the Disney slash Pixar animated classics and turning them into live action movies. So we have The Lion King line king. One of the most successful Disney animated movies ever is now being done as a live action movie. You have Donald Glover being Simba. You have James Earl Jones actually being this father and the same scores. They're the same using. And it's directed by John Fabbro who did such a great job with the jungle book doing the same thing that I think we can all feel optimistic about what's going to happen. And then we have Aladdin when we remember the. Animated movie who do we remember the most? We remember Robin Williams doing the voice of the genie. This time doing the voice of the genie and being the genie. We have Will Smith. So big stars in this big kind of thing, they tried it with Dumbo earlier this year, and that didn't quite work the way they wanted to do. But we're talking about lying king and the Ladan so big deal. Now, what terms of old fashioned animation is out there. I don't know if you're like me. But there's a Toy Story four toy stories always been my favorite of those Pixar. There's something about Woody and buzz light year, and you're probably saying to yourself. Well, and Toy Story three didn't it happen. That would he said goodbye, Andy. And he went to college, and it was all over remember. There was little Bonnie Andy gave his toys too. So we're going to have little Bo peep comeback. I think when you look at what goes on in Toy Story, you have that kind of feeling of goodness of field. Goodness, but done with all the magic of Pixar. So if those adventures out there are going to have a run for their box office money. I would say Toy Story. Four is going to be the one that does it. So what else we now have men in black men in black international? You're not gonna see Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones anymore. But this time you have Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. As new agents who are out there in this men in black universe. Sometimes you say to yourself do I want more of that? And you never know to actually see it. And I can only tell because I haven't seen this movie yet. But it looks like there's chemistry there. Then we have Spiderman far from home. You know, the Spiderman franchise never seems to end either. But we have Tom Holland who played him last time charmingly, I think, but now spider man, Peter Parker. They're taking a European vacation and the villain that they run up against is mysterious. Played by Jake Jilin. All I just think they're still some special sauce in the Spiderman universe, and I expect this one to also be a major hit. Godzilla Godzilla king of the monsters. I see that. And I go how much can they work this poor God's, but you can look at the trailer and see it. I like the idea that aside from viewer for Megan who is in it, Billy Bobby Brown from stranger things is in its she the dynamo. So if God Zillah can basically meet his match betting on little Millie to do something with that Hobbes and Shaw, this is fast and the furious you remember the rock of playing the the law man, and Jason stefon playing the outcast and the rebel these guys. I don't know if this is Hollywood kind of thing, but they tell us that Jason stadium and the rocked wing Johnson. Don't really like each other. And maybe that what the reason we love these characters and show so much because we liked that conflict. I don't know it seems a PR stunt to me, but I'm going to be there because this cars. There's the rock and their Stefa. So you're going to be there to and you know, it, oh and the big deal. Now, everybody has just in the midst of welcoming game of thrones back to their lives. The last season of that. You can't bear to live in a world where you can't see the stark sisters anymore. Well, now, you can dark Phoenix, which is part of the X men universe. Bring Sophie Turner, and she's Jean grey this character that we've seen before. But she's this younger version of her and she split between the good side of her and the dark Phoenix side of her. And to me, these girls are tremendously talented in what they do on game of thrones. And I think we're going to keep seeing them through the years, but her sister her at least game of thrones sister, maisy Williams is in new mutants part of that universe too. But in this case, they're all new characters to do this. They're all gonna be in the X men universe. Doing it. So that's it for the blockbusters that are out there. You've got everything from animation to comic book characters to everything. And that's the stuff that you hear about that your friends are going to talk to you about. But there's gotta be other stuff to part of summer is comedy of. I think we all really have gone through a long winter. And we're saying make us laugh give us something that will just make say, whatever. I can just sit back and not think. So what's there for that? There's a movie called longshot. This is a movie in which Charlotte Theran is playing the secretary of state who is running for president. But falling Manley in love with who staff throw in. Okay. It's like, a beauty and the beasts thing going on here. Seth Rogan is her speechwriter all of her people say what are you doing? You're going to destroy your career. But no, it's love. And if you don't laugh at the combination of Seth Rogan, Charlie staring. There's nothing left for you. And then we have the hustle. The hustle is a movie that used to be called dirty run scoundrels where the old days it was about conman. Now, it's con- women. They're played by Anne Hathaway and rebel Wilson. And they basically go all cross the continent finding rich people whose money they can steal pretty people. Glamour? What's wrong with that? Oh, book smart. This is directed by the actress Olivia Wilde, and it's about girls graduating from high school and saying we spent all our lives with our head in the books. Everybody else is going to parties and having fun. So they're going to do that beanie Feldstein plays one of them. She is the sister of Jonah hill and real life and Jona hill did super bad. This is kind of the women's version of super bad everything in it works, like a charm. You're really going to like that one. Then we have a movie called late night. This is about the TV talk show world and Emma Thompson plays. Probably the only woman on late night TV who hosts her own show, but she's got only men on her writing staff, and then she hires Mindy Kaeling who also wrote the screenplay of this movie, very very funny about what happens when you put women into what basically has been. A male bass they end of doing this. And the combination of Mindy king writing for the great Emma Thompson and watching them perform together is just so you've got to see that one to my favorite kind of thing. The dead. Don't die. You've got to admit that is a great and funny title. It comes from the indie, directing great, Jim Jarmusch. And it's cut people like Bill Murray and Adam driver by zombies. Okay. If Bill Murray is going to go out there and get laughs. Sizing up zombies. I'm going to be there watching him do it. So we have a good chance for laughs horror. I've got to talk about it now because it's not just the Cajun. Oh movie harm movie that makes money any makes people talk and get happy. It's they're everywhere. Now child's play do you? Remember the old child's play movies where you had Chucky. The crazy nut doll that. Always terrified me. Just. This doll who looks kind of little bit weird and freckly, but he has a voice on him like a longshoreman guess who's doing the west now of Chucky Marquel? Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker. And from what I've seen of it in. It's just been a little bit of it. It's wonderfully malevolent, so I'm going to be there to see that one. Then there's Annabel comes home. Another doll another possess doll also part of the conjuring universe where a viewer for Megan Patrick Wilson. Or the demon knowledge is that tried to make sure that nothing bad can come of this horrible doll Annabelle, but Bill will destroy and I will be there to watch her. Do it then them that follow their certain titles that get me them that follow really gets me? And it's about a snake handling church in Appalachia. No, they there are there colts. And they're almost religious cult where people pray. But they have the snakes, and they hold the life thinks pass them on. And you're thinking, what are you tell me about this like CD movie Har movie will guess who the star of this movie is the freshly minted Oscar winner Ogilby Coleman from the favourite, she's tossing those snakes around so irresistible. I think you're gonna love it. Then there's the Nightingale. See it's does not stop. It's har- everywhere. The night and gas from the director, Jennifer Kent who did a thing a couple of years ago called the baba Duke, which gave millions of people nightmares. And now she's back there following a woman who is chasing a convict got to be hooked. And then midsummer midsummer directed by REI Astor who last year gave us hereditary with Toni Collette, a really scary movie. Now, it's at a nine day Swedish holiday where everybody celebrates. But they'll be no celebrating after this one. So we. Got a lot of stuff out there. That's just going to scare us witless. And I couldn't be happier. All right. When summer comes. We think of all the things I've just talked to you about blockbusters comedy horror action, the rock of everything is there, but every even in a season like this. It's all about money and getting us into our theater, there are those movies that can come out entertain us. And also will hear about them at the end of the year when the Oscar nominations come out and the number one movie on that list, and the one that I haven't seen anything of India's of anyone that saw even anything past the trailer is called once upon a time in Hollywood it is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino its stars in order to Capri, oh as a TV star on the wane in Los Angeles. And Brad Pitt as his stunt double whoever thought of

So that we have our own bachelor recap show on Ellen tube. Featuring a number of our staff members, I'm working very hard to make the bachelor recap show its own podcast. That's that's on my jets.

Lupita Nyong`o talks about her new movie 'Us'
"You're doing to amazing movies. Yeah. I feel very lucky. Yeah. Really cool. All right. So we're going to talk about us in a minute 'cause the audience saw it last night. Yeah. So in happy belated birthday when was your birthday March first? Okay. And so what did you do? Well, I had a laser tag birthday party. Oh, yeah. In brooklyn. Let's say for then painful because you're yeah. Yeah. It does hurt yet. So I got about thirty of my friends together. And we went and played laser tag. I learned a lot about my friends. You know, I learned who I want in a time of war high side. Sounds fun. But yeah, it was a lot of when I heard you did something interesting last year. What did you do? I went on a ten day meditation retreat, a what wear. Yeah, it was outside of Dallas. It's a passionate retreat. I don't know where it was. It was like farmland you go there. And you know, you sign away your electronics, and and you promise to stay the ten days. And and it was the hardest thing I have done really. So from us, but you do you speak or you don't know is complete silence for ten days. You're allowed to ask questions at specific times of day. But it's you're not allowed to make eye contact with the other people on the retreat because the idea is for you to have a solitary experience and really just face your own demon. So all that silence note. No electronics, no music. No TV nothing. Just you and your thoughts. And boy did learn a lot about my mom. Yeah. That's amazing. Yes. Silence. Is a really pow. Powerful thing. I believe in that. So you how many people were there? I want to say we must have been about seventy. I mean, you can't really count 'cause you can't look at you can't get down three people over there. Seventy people writing. Okay. Yeah. That's really cool. And at the end did you like did you get to look at people? And then kinda learn about them or well, it was funny right before we started before us the silence is official. Some woman came up to me. And she was like are you the beat the long run? All this way to get away from right? And then afterwards, she came up to me and said, you know, I'm so sorry. I realized after this ten days that that was the one thing you were probably escaping from. And I appreciate it yet. He was probably the whole ten days going got him an idiot. Why did I do that the whole time? This choir self, oh today me. But I'm going to go up towards the end, and I'm gonna all she had going. All right. So let's talk about us. It looks so good. So tell me and everybody that hasn't seen it when it's about well, it's a nightmare from Jordan peels mind, and it is about Adelaide Wilson a woman who is riddled with this trauma from childhood that she cannot explain and she's on vacation with her family and their summer home in Santa Cruz, and she's convinced something bad is going to happen. And she's proven, right? When these four shadowy figures show up at the top of their driveway and their worst nightmare and sues and you play you play two different characters. Yeah. Very very different characters that must've been fun. It was incredible. I mean, it was hard work. Yes. Who it was hard work? And you know, 'cause they're very different. They are diametrically opposed to each other. But they are also connected. So I had to go to some dark places within myself to to find the d'appel ganger read of do a crazy voice. That was a lot of fun to create. Nate and. Yeah, I I enjoy the experience I spent a lot of time between take sleeping just trying to catch up with myself. Yeah. Because when you have a day off, the other character doesn't exactly. Yeah. Yeah. And you never meet your scene partner. Yeah. Which is a challenge from its own. Yeah. That's really difficult. So you're talking to someone sort of?
Olivia Wilde’s Mom Loses to Candidate Who She Accused of Being a 'Devotee of Bigfoot Erotica'
"It's not true that he was never a professional pornographer anything like that. And he s he is interested in sasquatch as I am. Here's a Republican nominee in blitz. A fifth district in Virginia. And he was running against one of the most left wing. I mean, really the most left-wing of all candidates nominated for anything. Her name was Leslie Cockburn. She pronounced Coburn is written out. Cock burn. But Leslie Cockburn is the mother of the Hollywood actress Olivia Wilde. And Leslie Hobart has kind of wild with a history of profound anti-americanism and profound anti-israelism and she lost. And this was raised that the Democrats have been counting on winning and one that they lost. There were wins and losses across the country. Some of them said some of them wonderful like the Riggleman Cockburn race, but all of them resulting in what a lotta people will be a more functional situation in Washington DC. Now, how could that be with a divided congress? We will get to that. Let me go first to atom in Atlanta atom, you're on the Michael Medved Show.
"olivia wilde" Discussed on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA
"So somehow, we've worked the midterm elections, and some updates on that with something that was more of a lead that I didn't know would work or not in that is. But about three actresses, he probably I'm sure, you know, the more than I do. I don't know who they are. Kristen bell, Karen, nightly and. Olivia Wilde the latter who's raising her son is a feminist, and I'm just thinking to myself if you're just joining us. They're pointing out some of these actresses that things like Snow White. Because it's weird that Snow White is kiss without a permission or takes an apple from somebody. She doesn't knows a witch. You know, we're banning them. We ask questions. He ask questions. I understand there's messaging that you need to clean up perhaps or you could point out. But to throw everything out. At the same time seems a bit excessive if not damaging Anthony. Sounding like he is flipped party affiliations to the extreme Republican party. God do a lot of thoughts that I had there's history you can't whitewash history. Millennials look silly going through this type of stuff. Those were the times it happened lights a confederate statues. They happened. Explain them. Learn teach move on. Don't just get rid of everything. You don't just tell your four year old. You're not allowed to watch that. I mean, look, my mom didn't allow us to watch the monkeys because she said or thought they were communist. That's right. You heard correctly. So maybe ought to be careful. I had a snake to watch Batman little too violent for bets. So maybe I gotta be careful here. But to me it's about teaching. And you know, the just seems like an ex I'm missing something is what I'm saying. And I've had a lot of great feedback pro and con women. Talking about how they've raised their daughters. That's an important part of this conversation. So make it now. Eight six six three nine one ten twenty. I had my buddy Blaine on the other night Blaine Jones, and we really got into quite a conversation on this. On mytalk. And and it got very debatable got heated, and you know, blank took the position effectively that hey, listen, I have daughters. I see things through there is these people may not be the best messengers. But I understand the message, and I need to work that in to how I teach a parent and nobody teaches in parents harder than him. So that's air the midterms. Just quickly. It'll get to your calls, but the midterms look like a lot of people are gonna vote is a matter of fact, so many people are gonna vote, and I have two very important topics on that that I'm not even gonna do them now because I want to get to the calls that have been on hold. And then I'll do that after I get back from the break. So let's go right now to David Robinson. Dave, always a pleasure. What do you have on us on his knee doing good, man? Take on the Disney. It's entertainment. Nothing but entertainment is to make people feel good and to have fun and I have two girls were daughters. They're girls anymore. They're in their forties. And they are successful business people. They run their own companies. They're doing a great job. I don't think that and they were both. Performers in there you and they love the dizzy songs. Disney movies songs were great animation was great. It was fun. It was no message. Message was just like we're having a we've watching Disney movie all lab or clap and the whole thing and a girl. Oversaw four years. Soul singer every word. Well, here's a here's. I want to just throw this in their hearts, and I think you hit a really great entertainment. You know, God forbid, we put perspective on this that we actually put some level of appropriate percentage of importance on it. Okay. God forbid, we do that. And we turn everything into a political essay. That this is what and you you aren't Anthony and Oakland, and this is why Donald Trump's the president. This is enlarged. And maybe not literally this. But other things that lead to the point of complete exhaustion, if there are legitimate points that are a lot of legitimate points out there that need to be addressed. Whether they come from cartoons or something else. You can't throw everything that was that phrase, Dan, Dave about a bath, the baby water everything cannot be. Metaphor, right. You can't everything can't be a nuclear weapon. Exactly everything. I mean, the area of the fact that Snow White kiss by prince charming. She's been asleep for how many years more. Who cares? Well, that's that's got to be honest with you, folks. I I I am more in the line of the this is a this is a little crazy that doesn't mean that something has served as entertainment forty fifty sixty seventy eighty years ago would not pass muster today. We've seen a lot of things in race. Clearly verboten. Things could evolve. Maybe this is part of that evolution. I if I want to put that out there, but realistically. This looks like people that are looking for something to complain about. I'm sorry. Someone teach me eight six six three nine one ten twenty..

"One sixty nine and from PRI public radio international. I'm Tom power. So you might not know Dan Fogelman by name. But there's a good chance. He has made you cry and Fogelman created this is us the hit series. The introduces you to this family, and they're called the Pearsons it brings you right into their lives. You watch this joy this heartache this tragedy unfold over the course of about three decades the show's about to start its third season. See probably think that's enough to keep Dan busy. But no he decided to make a whole other movie on the side he'd directed. A film called life itself. He wrote a two it opens in theaters tomorrow and has all the markers of a classic Fogelman. I big cast featuring, you know, Oscar Isaac Olivia Wilde Antonio Banderas, Mandy patinkin intersecting storylines, jumping timelines oh end uncontrollable sobbing from everybody in the theater like lots and lots of tears, Dan Fogelman took some time. Dive into his latest project while he was here for the Toronto international film festival. I promise I didn't cry at least while I was talking to him. Take a listen. Dave, welcome to Q. As soon as I saw the film I walked outside, and I talked to our producer, Elaine and choking back emotions, I looked. And I said question number one for them. What are you trying to do to us? That's funny. I didn't I the narrative about crying and making people cries, it's not something I ever set out to do or thought that that would be really thing. Yeah. I hoped it would affect people. You know, what I mean and move people in different ways. But, but yeah, it's been an interesting experience. My process wanna making anything a film rich is I screen for Akiba a lot bring people into my edit there or have a little theater and bring ten friends Franson just to see how things are you behind one of those two. No, but I'll sit with them, and I can really I've been doing this long enough where I can feel the audience a little bit where I'm losing them where where I'm hat. We're have them and reactions right away. It was clear that though the film is very loaded for people and people were having like, a, you know, a big in a positive way for the film. But like a big reaction emotionally to it. And there's always this awkward moment where we'd end especially amongst men. Young men who none of us want it ever be seen being emotional. And. I too tough. I would just leave the lights off for five minutes and people just sit in silence for a couple of minutes. And it was an interesting. It was an interesting experience for me. Like, I have to tell you. I'm not someone who cries it films. I'm not someone you know, I kind of stoic when when I watched them. But maybe it's no, I think I think it also brings you to think of the income loss, you have your life. You know, you're losing a parent is in other things those things bubble up to the surface. Well, that's the interesting part is people say like, oh, why why are you interested in this kind of stuff? And I'm like wasn't that what our lives are full of our allies are full of weddings, and births and deaths and losses of parents and great love for our children, and parents and family. I'm like what else is there to really write about? However, I do I do think there's lots of. I mean, obviously, there's a lot of techniques there. But I think there's technique there in that way too. Because you know, I think the part of the reason people have that really emotional reaction to your stories is because these are generally ordinary people, and they seem like ordinary people and trying to deal with just generally ups and downs the realities of life. I'm less curious about what you do to make that seem authentic and make it seem real. But I'm wondering if the things you don't do things you have void. It's a really good question. I mean, I think there's a trend in like the space that I like to work in you have to have a meter, right? Where like what what's basis that? That's the drama d like there's a little bit of comedy. But then you can go really heavy, but then you can go really sweet like. Get word drama. But you have to have a good monitor of like, if you're going to have something that really makes you feel it can be really good to have humor after and before they're within it. You know? Otherwise, you're you're it gets too full too much too early. It's like going on a ride roller coaster, and and you want to keep the ride moving. So that you know, it's got that. Sometimes it's got that kind of picking up a big drop, and then might be fast for a part of go upside down, and I think it's a little bit of just kind of keeping your foot on and off the pedal. Modulate to there are times when you go out maybe a little too much little bit. There's a scene in the film. It's one of my favorite teams in the film were Mandy patinkin has seen with a little girl and mandated three different types of performances and all of them were beautiful, but one of them and not the one I used was he was really really emotional during the scene with the little girl, and it's like toward a force acting. You know, what I mean, and he would cry. There's there's not a false note in the performance. But that didn't feel right for that point in the movie after in that space in the movie, we just been through a lot in the film and actually took an emotional take from him. But a strong tape where he's firmly talking to his daughter with emotion in his voice. And that's a small thing that you do four thousand times within a movie to try and use your meter to figure out where to push push the pedal and not too much. Where's your line? Where's your line between sentimentality and honest? It's just an instinct I have my line is further along than like a cynical critic. It's not it's not as far as like some people who are really can dive into the kind of schmaltzy stuff. I think this film. The it would it would do some of the things that happened in the what what was interesting and challenging in. The film is the film is very dark like the film is not an easy fill. And so I think some of the sentiment is earned because the characters and you as an audience go through some really heavy duty stuff. This is not like rich people problems like there's some real real darkness at the core of the fell for me. I was trying to get out. You know life is difficult at especially difficult right now. The human experience is difficult and complicated and often very dark. I choose to kind of push past that and see the beauty that comes from just watching one of my buddies with his kid more going to a wedding or going as I recently did to a close friend's funeral who died early and young. And it was awful. And it was sad. But there was also laughter. Love and beauty and watching his family. And I choose to see not just the ugly and the sad. But at the other side of it as well because I think we're surrounded by that. Registered piece for deadlines about your bet your mother, and I think one of the reasons that this really affected me so much as I lost my dad when I was even I was really young and whenever enterpise about deadline of when you talk about this film and about how it was dedicated to your wife, and dedicated to your mom, and I was just really taken by the part where you said I just knew I knew she was going to get better. I knew everything was going to work out because I can tell things generally work out. And then when they don't it's it is it's real life. Smacking you in the face, my friend at work who I do my television show with calls it life at full volume, and they life for volume or you know, we all go about our day. And our days are often pretty mundane, no matter what place we're living in to wear in the world, we're living in and then you have one of those moments are one of those days, a oh, wow. In your entire life can turn on its axis like that. And that's what's so interesting to me about the human experiences. You are one swerve a car and oncoming traffic to your entire existence. Being shifted. It doesn't have to be a car accident that involves you. And that's how fleeting this always. And we're worried about nonsense most of the time. And but we all experience it, it's not melodrama. You one of the things I figured out in my show. And I talking too much one of the things I figured out in my show was always wondered when we're doing our television show. How much was too much when it turned into soap opera and melody was kind of what I was asking before it wasn't the best the line the line for me. What was interesting sitting in my show. I sat on our first week of making showbiz was three years ago that it informs this film with a group of ten writers who had hired to be in the show, and we shared our life experiences, and our stories are dramatic, even the most mundane life the most ordinary life. If you break distill it to how how your parents met together, the confluence of events that brought your parents together to form, you even if you and then the things that brought us together with not just our significant others, but let us to career paths and love and loss and tragedy our allies when you break. Them down to the key moments. The most ordinary life is really spectacular and cinematic. And so that's why like I enjoy taking focusing on people with ordinary lives. Not superheroes are not famous people. I think it's really interesting to look at the normal may experience and say like, wow, your life when you really look at. It was very it was very much like a movie, and you wouldn't you would just go. Oh, I'm just a normal guy life. Do you feel like you write a sort of an elevated version of the way that humans might favor the monologue, especially with with Oscar Isaac character in this film? Some of the most beautiful moments are him yet Manala shootings at the term. What what is it about the monologue? As a form that I think I think what I'm trying to what I try and do with with the film's is like I try and capture something that feels relatable and identifiable to people, but we all don't necessarily speak in monologues. We we don't all have that ability. And we don't have somebody writing before us. We're also making films, and I think like so much of our art. These days is everybody wants everything to be so real, right? It's like everybody wants their films to feel like a documentary. Right. I think movies are can still be movies. And you don't have to just reserve the fantastic for superhero movies, or you know, what I mean or marvel movies. It's funny. How that sounds radical to me me? I mean, like, it's funny that you're right. Yeah. Is almost a radical decision to write a dramatic heightened Sorkin the monologue. It's entertainment. I'm asking people to come into a movie theater and pay to see listen like most people, I think a lot of people identify with the type of eleven relationship Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde character that being said most people don't look like Oscar Isaac via while they can be. Yeah. Not every speaks exactly like them. But there's something in the essence of what they're doing in this film that reminds people of their best moments and some of their worst movement moments would their spouses, and so I think you can hide and things because we are asking you're asking to sweep people away into a film. And I think that's okay. My I don't have people jumping off things in wearing capes and flying and having gone. So I like to do stuff with a lot of words yet, Dan. I'm waiting superhero film. A lot of people in costumes giving monologue. Right. Stop talking. I feel like in this film in life itself. Unlike this I really felt like. I'm trying to give away too much. But I feel like I could sense. You speaking directly to the viewer was that was that intentional. I think so I did nothing. I'm not good enough to have anything be intentional. I really am. Not. I don't sit down the plan. I didn't sit down to write this film from mother and wife, I didn't have a plan. But there's a lot of voiceover narration. This. There is it's my voice. I mean, I think the movie is the closest this film is the closest I've come to putting myself on television screen. I'm sorry on a film screen. Only in that. Like, it's got my view of the world in it and pretty much spoken out loud. And you know, I think if you don't like the film, you probably wouldn't like me, you know, what I mean as a person like, we probably wouldn't be friends, which is okay. But like. Because it's as much as myself totally as I can put on screen you've talked to a couple of times now about the heightened heightened dialogue in your film is that we can things can still be entertainment without people needing necessarily to jump off skyscrapers..
