"Okay. One minute, what else should we see? All right, I'll do rapid fire here. Because we haven't been on a couple of weeks. No. Avoid avoid the matrix resurrections. You know that from your tweets. Don't go see that not very good. It's on HBO Max. If you have to see it, watch it on HBO Max. Don't go to theaters. And waste your time and money there. There's a movie on Apple TV plus called swan song, which stars Maharashtra la Ali the two time Oscar winner. He's playing a kind of a double role himself and a clone of himself. The premise of the film, it's like a bit like a Black Mirror episode, the Netflix sci-fi speculative fiction series, but the premise is he's dying of a disease and transfers his memories into a new body. So his family will not lose him. It's very heartfelt touching and poignant. He is a great actor. It is worth watching for his acting performance. A bit of a downer. Don't go to that one. Don't go to that one expecting a real super uplifting thing, but very, very good. One more. One more. Licorice pizza, licorice pizza is in theaters everywhere now. The new one from Paul Thomas Anderson. I loved it quite a bit. I loved it. It's a little bit long. It's two and a half hours or so. It's a kind of a Shaggy dog.

"All of Paul Thomas Anderson's movies ranked by Matthew Jacobs. Your favorite Paul Thomas Anderson movie probably depends on whether you prefer his oddball comedies. Punch drunk love, inherent vice, the new licorice pizza, or his operatic psychodramas. There will be blood, the master, Magnolia, hard 8. Sometimes when you're lucky, you get both at once, phantom thread, boogie nights. Anderson tends to change tempos from film to film, which makes him one of the most energizing directors working today. Even when his films are sprawling, his work remains intimate and character driven using hyper specific backdrops, often the California of yesteryear, where he was born to illuminate a particular moment in time. In some sense, every story he tells is one in which humans desperate need for connection, butts up against greed of one kind or another, usually a distinctly American kind. But despite his headiness Anderson is committed to entertaining the hell out of us. His soundtrack curation alone is exquisite. No surprise, as he is also a music enthusiast, having helmed slick videos for Fiona Apple, radiohead and haim. His pilots are invigorating in their well calculated unpredictability. Simply put Anderson has never made a bad movie and certainly never a dull one. If he ever does, it would probably still run circles around whatever else is playing at the multiplex that weekend. Licorice pizza marks Anderson's 9th movie, which is as good an occasion as any to reflect on his catalog thus far. Ahead of its release, pizza opened in select theaters on November 26th, the nationwide on December 25th. Time re watched and ranked Anderson's era defining of. 9. Inherent vice 2014. One viewing of inherent vice won't suffice. Even if you've read that Thomas pinchon novel on which it's based, this rambling tangle about a perpetually stoned private investigator, a mutton shop Joaquin Phoenix, drifting through a Manson paranoid Los Angeles can feel as hazy as a cloud of pot smoke. It is as the kids say a vibe and a dense one at that. Tackling the changing cultural mores of 1970 with deceptively layered humor. For many vice is a like it or leave it situation. When consumed like a long goodbye esque parade of unified tableaux, guided by a fashionable cast, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Benicio del Toro, Reese Witherspoon, Hong Chao, a scene stealing Martin Short. The movie offers a groovy secondhand buzz, but it's also a bit high on its own supply, lacking the emotional anchor needed to stay afloat. 8. Hard 8, 1996, Anderson got a rude awakening about Hollywood egos when the production company behind Sydney. His directorial debut the film and named it hard 8. He acquiesced on the title, but not the edit. Ultimately convincing the powers that be to release his version. Even with Anderson's thinnest plot, hard 8 is pretty great. The movie is early traces of his signature flare, stylish tracking shots, piercing close ups, expressive monologues and a story that changes course around the midway point..

"Yeah, yeah, yeah. I guess another one that I thought of, but I don't need to say, 'cause I know it's gonna be in your top four as boogie nights. Yes. But that would be insane if it were. There's one critical question here that we'll get to, but here's what I'm thinking for these rankings, okay? And we can workshop it in real time. Yeah. Number 9 I think sort of by necessity has to be hard 8 because it is the sort of least ambitious and the first film that PTA is making. I like that film quite a bit, but it is not and it clearly indicates where he's going and what kind of characterization he cares about. And the John C Reilly character in particular, I think, kind of is a meaningful stand in for PTA at the beginning of his career. He's like waiting for somebody to come and be like, hey man, here's how you do it. Here's how you go through life and go through the world. Philip baker hall is amazing in that movie and I cherish that performance. I think the Gwyneth Paltrow character and the same Jack's character are kind of weird and it seems like he is also working through some youthful complications about how to characterize those kinds of people and those kinds of actors in his movie. So to me, it's number 9. But at the same time, he did like Gwyneth Paltrow and Sam Jackson. He did his first movie. I mean, the dude can write. He can write his ass off. If you've ever read one of his scripts, you know, he's one of the best writers around. So he obviously has always been able to get young and interesting performers to participate. I'm putting a movie that we have not talked about at all. Right. For not really like any specific reason, but we haven't mentioned in her advice. Which I think is kind of an outlier in his career. And another movie that I'm not, I know why he made it, and I think it's good fun. But it feels like a detour. It doesn't feel.

"And the power dynamics are kind of like a central aspect of that movie and how they're going to negotiate them, but she really gets a place at the table whereas in most of the other movies they're just they're supporting characters. And that's not like a PTA doesn't care about women thing. I'm not even. I'm not going close to it. But because that's not what I mean at all. It's just that he has made a lot of movies about men and their relationships to other men. That is that's his interest at or was. And now he seems to be much more interested in distinctly the relationship between a man and a woman. The last two films are very much about the kind of psychological warfare, deep seated feeling, but also the sweetness and the love and I mean that that sequence and phantom thread when Daniel Day-Lewis character arrives at the restaurant diner for the first time where the Vicki creeps character is working, and he begins to order and she describes for him what's happening with the menu and the food. And the interplay that they have, there is no scene like that in all of his other films. There's nothing that is that. Full of yearning and mischief and excitement and you feel like you're on the brink of something very special. And it's fun, it's fun to watch him get to these points of telling his stories. If he had just made the master, 16 times, I probably would have just laughed it up and been like bravo, eugenius, but I would have it would not have felt like a full career. You know, it would have felt iterative. And I think that that's also a trap that a lot of filmmakers when they reach this stage of their career really all artists is how do I stay fresh and respond honestly to how I'm feeling, as opposed to trying to give people the thing that I think that they want from me. It doesn't really seem stuck on that, which I have always admired. No, and that is another exciting thing about licorice pizza. It's just all the things that he can do and how well he can do them. And there is enough sort of familiarity with the world of Paul Thomas Anderson still there. That you're excited and responding to a long career that you've loved, but it's just like, oh yeah, you want to make this type of movie? Great. It's going to be great. It's been interesting watching him speak in some interviews recently and say, yeah, I've got a couple of films like basically written or things I want to do and he doesn't seem to be he's not anguished over the future, either, you know? He's like, I'm going to keep making movies. It's been a hilarious listening to him, talk, it weighs the sound quite familiar to myself about how he's got a pretty positive relationship with some of the mainstream entertainment in the world right now venom to check plus Shang-Chi. He enjoyed it. He lives in a marvel household..

"But this is also happening on Succession right now between Greg and Tom and then more specifically this week with Roman and the Justin Kirk character. That was really. This masculine combative, emotional, obsessed, loving chemistry bound relationship between two guys. I have friendships like this where I'm like, this person riles me up and I'm confused by them and I love them and I wanna throw them down the sewer, you know? And that's there is something that he has been able to hit the very honestly I can't think of very many filmmakers that can do this. Yeah, the Succession comparison is apt, except I think that succession is moving towards or not moving towards embodies and nihilism that I don't think is there in any of the PTA stuff. If it's there, he's really battling against it and there is a real sense still of emotion and something that either hasn't been unlocked or frankly that he's fighting to keep closed because it is so powerful. And there's even in the master which I think is like cold and like very distant and calculated, there is something humming underneath it that is very, very potent and mysterious, as you said, whereas I think succession is just really dead inside in a way that I think is its own form of artistic achievement. How dark and dead they're getting this season is I think turning some people off. And I'm like, here for it, let's go. Exact same. I feel the exact same way about Succession and but I think you are 100% right that it feels like Paul Thomas Anderson is trying to reject that or better understand it to get away from it. That darkness, especially as we get further into his career here, and he starts to transition and he starts clearly thinking much more about love in terms beyond the kind of psychotic obsession. You know, there will be blood in the master are films about psychotic obsession with getting what you want with holding onto relationships, you know, the HW Daniel relationship is so strange. That is not his son that is a kid that he effectively stole, saved, raised, and then abandoned..

"You'll also get access to our apps, online archives dating back to 1925, crossword puzzles, and much more. So the only movie that I rewatched to prepare for this because I don't really need your watches. I've seen them a lot. But the only one I rewatched, that I'm still trying to, I'm still trying to figure out is the master. Okay. I think that that will be as I get into the next phase of my life. The what was this? What was he after here, how did he do this? What's going on between these two guys, especially since Hoffman has passed away and I look at what he's doing in this movie and I'm like, this is all magic tricks. He's a he's Houdini. And I've described many times that the screening that Chris and I went to, the midnight screening at the arc light when we saw this movie that was pure chills, pure, like I'll never forget, going out into the lobby afterwards and everyone just looking around at each other and not knowing what to say. And it was like we just got hit with like a big bag of feathers right in the face and I still to this day I am overwhelmed by it. I love it. I think it's so interesting, but that mystery that I was trying to talk about earlier, this one still I don't have all this big understanding of there will be blood and I have no understanding of the master. Did you look at this one before we talked? I rewatched part of it, which is, I mean, all of these it feels terrible saying out loud that you only watch part of them because they're masterpieces. It's a time crunch guys. It's a busy time of year and I'm just like doing my best. Do you have I ever told you my saying the master story? I don't think so remember this. I saw it at Ziggy theater in New York at the premiere and my husband. Jack Barron was there Andy greenwald was there. And it was the first time that I met trick listen man. Oh. And we all went to dinner after the master. So imagine me talking to those guys about themselves. I didn't say very much at the table. It's just kind of like I had the master part two, which was all of those guys trying to process it in real time. And I say that.

"And you know, like an interesting marriage of like energy and phase of life, which everyone goes through it and it's maybe it's honestly more palatable in a movie than just sitting across a table from you. But it's natural. It's part of life. One of the reasons I'm glad I've been married and with the same person for as long as I have is because I am so grateful I have not had to go on dates and tell people that there will be blood is my favorite movie because that's psychopath shit and like I don't know how many second dates I would have had the opportunity to have. Because you're right, there is a signal to people that you're a little bit you're a little too much. You need to relax. Like I was not very relaxed in my late in my late 20s and early 30s. I wanted it. And I like that Paul Thomas Anderson wanted it that he, because in a personality, that's pretty annoying. That's not a good conversation at a bar. And I know that about myself. I think we shouldn't be so hard on these young men. I mean, like, being 27 or 25 Bobby, I know it's hard. And also there will be blood is like one of the great movies. So, you know, you can appreciate it also just like holy shit, you made that. But there was always a little bit of element of fine. If you're finding yourself in the 2000s candidate of Paul Thomas Anderson, and it's like, oh, okay, cool. You know, good luck to you with that. Yeah, I mean, I think the Magnolia transition is interesting because the cruise character has been so kind of memed and celebrated and dissected at this point. But that's ultimately a very angry and repressed person working through a very powerful loss in his life. And when we, when I watch that movie, I saw that character as kind of like satirical, I think that there was something very humorous and that he was playing with the public persona of Tom Cruise in some ways with that character..

"We didn't talk about the king Richard box office thing and Bill, you know, kind of getting our hopes up on a podcast and then not painting out and me feeling really sad though. It does seem like many people watched it and not just watched two minutes of it watched the whole film at home. So do I think this movie is targeted to an age and demographic that will just wait until a Friday night and they've put their kids to bed and they're like, now I can, you know, have a edible and watch the great licorice pizza. I do. So, and that is its own form of commercial viability at this point. Do I think that everyone's going to be like, let me rush out? A lot of people will seek it out of theaters and because it's only in so many theaters right now and maybe that'll help kind of like the scarcity demand of it all. But I think it'll be seen. How it will be seen, I got no idea. Yeah, I agree with you. I think there are obviously is this strong desire to have it be seen on screen on big screens and the appetite for this kind of a movie is lower than it ever has been on big screen. So there's some challenge there. Ultimately it doesn't matter. Ultimately, it's a movie that I think people will want to live with and want to spend a lot of time with over and over again. So we'll talk more about it in the future. Let's transition now to the wider Paul Thomas Anderson conversation. Yeah. It's time. He is why let me try to figure out why he's my favorite. I still don't really know. Okay. I'm just gonna ask you this. So I'm glad you're just gonna let it all out. I'll set myself up. Well, I mean, is there a better way to kind of position what I'm about to go into here? No, what is it that makes these movies so singularly important to you? I think some artists you watch their work and you can tell that they're just so desperate to get something out of themselves. You know, they're just so you can feel the urge to express themselves in a way that doesn't make me cringe. You know, sometimes the way I'm describing that sounds a little bit highfalutin and perhaps pretentious. But I think particularly with pollen if you read his interviews when he was younger, if you watched him in this kind of like frantic stage of his career circa Magnolia, you felt like a mind racing all the time. Kind of eager to be understood and eager to get something across the screen and also extremely ambitious and desperate to kind of become legendary in a way that I thought was fascinating. You know, somebody who grew up in Hollywood, who was sort of surrounded by Hollywood, his father was a voice-over person on television and had hosted TV shows over the years. And so he knew the mill you very well, but he also, you know, I mean, his first movie is his first film was about a porn star. You know, he was also somebody who is transgressive. You know, who is a little bit underneath the dirty fingernails of Hollywood as well. He saw some things as a kid that maybe we didn't get to see growing up where we grew up, and he seemed eager to kind of like shine a bright neon light on some of those things. So that's very intoxicating when you're a kid. You know, and I was all of 14 or 15 when boogie nights came around. I didn't see heart 8 when it came out. That was a very small film with a very small release to play at Sundance, some controversy around the release of it..

"And that's hard to do as a character, and that's hard to do in your first film, especially when it's to new actors, if not unknowns, carrying a Paul Thomas Anderson film. I mean, think about the psychic weight of that. Just on its own, even before you bring in, you know, the stuff about his dad having been so central to so many of those other roles. It doesn't happen anymore, where you get two people who have not started movies in like a this is a big opportunity. Well, it occurred to me too as I was looking back at some of PTS other movies this week. It's been a long ass time since he made a movie that did not center either Joaquin Phoenix, or Daniel Day-Lewis. I mean, he was really culling from arguably the two most celebrated male performers of their generations. Were Adam Sandler and Adamson before that. Yes. So, I mean, one of the reasons we love Paul Thomas Anderson is he loves movie stars and he knows how to put movie stars in a position to thrive. So this is obviously a pretty significant change for him to choose two relative unknowns. And yet, I think the movie just works very well. It doesn't hurt that he has surrounded the these actors with not just the Sean Penn's and the Bradley coopers of the world, but Harriet Samson Harris is the person who jumped out to me the most when I saw this. She plays the casting agent. And I don't want to spoil that scene. But that actually was my. That was my favorite comic scene in the movie. And you may remember Harriet sansom Harris she appears in phantom thread as the drunken woman who is eventually put down in the dress, she gives a similarly virtual soap performance in this movie as like assume mangers esque kind of a child star agent in a hilarious scene. Again, this is a Paul Thomas Anderson thing. He knows how to pick faces and pick performers who maybe have not necessarily been the biggest stars in the world, but drop them into these worlds and make them unforgettable. And just give them 5 minutes or ten minutes. And then keep it moving. There are a whole number of others that will get into much, much deeper as we talk about the movie later in December. There's also I think an interesting conversation to be had akin to the one we had about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood about the real and imagined history of Hollywood here and what he has chosen to keep true to the history we know and what he has chosen to distort. That just seems like legal. You know? Just like kind of with, you know, what names are the lawyers let us use and what names do we have to change slightly? The last thing is just the music..

"Nevertheless. There will be an awards push for her. It's so funny. You really don't want to share the things you love with other people, which I'm the only way. And no, no, no. I totally get it. Totally different. My husband, who is so often like mocked on this podcast, was on a different ringer podcast, not hours, we don't invite him. He was on the ringer verse. And I thought he did a great job. He was great. He was so good. He was talking about wheel of time, which is a very nerdy fantasy series that I've never read that he loves very much. But they were also talking about this moment of when something that you love and it's that you're not the only person on earth who loves it. But it's a small, dedicated community you've organized. And spend a lot of one on one time with someone's art or just with the art itself. And then it gets opened up to the masses and how jarring that experience can be and it's really funny. You do a full podcast about the Oscars and you're just like, please leave the Oscars conversation out of my PTA type. Yeah, I mean, in true, I hate myself fashion. I hate what I've done here where I have to mention the fact that there is an there will be an Oscar conversation around a movie like this. I guess it's not that I don't want to share what's great about this. What I don't want to do is diminish it and kind of like water it down and bastardize it. Because the movie's intentions feel very pure. We watch a lot of movies at this time of year every year, whose intentions are very much informed by their hopes to be recognized by awards bodies. Obviously, this movie getting Oscar nominations would be more people would see it. We saw that with phantom. Phantom could actually did pretty good business in part because it was recognized by the academy. That being said, fancy thread, star Daniel Day-Lewis, and was this beautifully mounted film that takes place in Europe as a period piece was all about to design and fashion and there were all these pieces. Yes. There were pieces that made it legible, I think to the academy. This is going to be a little bit harder, I think for some members to parse, because it's it ambles. You know, it kind of like, it just kind of flows along. It's not hurtling towards something. And so because of that, it's more unusual. But let's just talk about Cooper.

"And I have been thinking a lot about the Alana character in conversation with Francis hop, because both the Cooper Hoffman character and the Anaheim character are figuring it out. And that is the coming of age part of it. It's not like they are satisfied with their station in life. It's not like they have room to grow. They're trying to figure out what makes sense for them. And it can get, you know, maybe not quite fraught for the Alana character, but complicated and she gets frustrated. I think that's one of a lot of times great gifts is an actress is just kind of like immediate zero to 60, just disgruntled Ness almost. She's just like, what is this? There's like a lovely screwball element to it as well. But even as they're trying to figure things out, it's that same, you know, it's gonna be okay. And you can feel that in the movie. This really is a feel good movie as opposed to pretty much all of his characters before now where it's like, oh my God, I don't know if you're gonna figure anything out. It might not be, okay. Yeah, I mean, even in something like phantom thread where romance is a key aspect of the film, there's so much tumult in the face of that romance that it makes it hard. There are still a lot of Paul Thomas Anderson's signatures. I think the visual theme of this movie is clearly like running, like, going on a journey, but not necessarily knowing what the destination is. When Bill Simmons and I talk to Paul in 2017 on his pod, he had recommended a movie that the name of the movie escapes me right now, but in that recommendation. Remember this. You remember this he talked about this young woman who is an Olympic athlete who had been making this sort of transition after meeting a filmmaker to becoming an actor, and her first film was about her running career as a track athlete, and he talked about how he loved to watch women run, which I think, you know, in my funny mind, like I love the idea of the slightly perverse Paul, obviously Paul has perverse taste and I identify with some of those tastes. But he was so sincere about how he loved to watch this young woman run. And he's got not just the Lana, but Cooper Hoffman running all the time in this movie. It is, and, you know, we've seen Joaquin run in his movies..

"And he's obviously a power of PTAs and he's told PTA these stories about his life as a young child actor. And so certainly some of this movie is Gary's memories, certainly some of it is Paul's memories, kind of building these things back together. You know that this movie is largely based on true stories because it is deeply idiosyncratic. It is so specific. Some of the journeys in episodes that Gary and Alana get into here could only come from someone's real life. Yeah. I mean, there's like a definite, healthy choice, coupons, quality to some of these things. In a warmer way. And everything that you said about the phases of his career resonates. It is also a later in life PTA's not old. We're not old. Guys, we're all in the prime of our lives. We're doing great, but you can feel that softening and even the way that he is examining as you said and noted in our outline. You know, yet another hustler, like a young character trying to figure out his place in the world, but instead of it coming from that angry young man place, it comes from a place of look at what we've done and look at how great it is to be making this movie. There is a lot of joy in this movie as well. Yeah, I've been describing it as comic and not a comedy. There are a lot of laughs, but it is not. And there are a couple of moments in which it goes sort of broad and you're looking for a big laugh line in the audience. Both screenings that I've been able to attend. It's been a very warm crowd, ready to embrace the movie. But, you know, it's not anchorman. You know, it's not trying to be anchorman. It's a little bit different. And I think, you know, it's also clearly a coming of age story in which the Gary character. And then really, frankly, more the Alana character, I think, is kind of having a lot of realizations about her station and life and what kind of person she wants to be. She endures. And the movie I think is kind of wrong foots you where you think this is gonna be a Gary movie and I think it ultimately does become an a lot of movie and interesting ways. But, you know, Paul has talked about American Graffiti, I think is kind of a signal for this film showing that film to his kids and kind of getting their reactions to it, showing that movie to Alana to Alana heim I'm talking about, of course who plays a lot of Canada the movie Cooper Hoffman, who the son of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman who plays Gary in this movie, I love these kinds of movies. I also love hangout movies. You know, we talk a lot about, I think we think of Richard linklater as the author of the hangout movie in the 21st century. So it was fun to see him. I guess depressurize his movie. You know, did that surprise you that when you sat down because I think we think we have a different set of expectations for a PTA experience..

"I'm Amanda, Robin. And this is the big picture, a conversation show about licorice pizza. Paul Thomas Anderson's 9th feature film opens today in a very few select theaters and it is expanding wide this Christmas, but today for me, this is Christmas, because PTA is my favorite filmmaker and so on today's episode, we will talk a little bit about licorice pizza. I promise we will circle back and dive much deeper into it when it opens wide in theaters. And after that we're going to go through the PTA filmography and rank our favorites. And Amanda is going to open a wide berth here for me. I am, this is, you've cleared out for me mostly on Sofia Coppola and anti Meyers and even the Spencer episodes and I appreciate it, little women. That's another one. This is your time. I already promised you. I did it in writing. I was like, I'm not going to be mean to you. I'm going to support a partner. It's Christmas for you. It's today's Christmas for me as well because I'm finally allowed to put up Christmas decorations. There's a no Christmas decoration so after Thanksgiving in my house. So it's a joyous time. For everybody. Let us now celebrate the works of PTA, so liquorice pizza, tough thing to talk about here because as we were planning this conversation, we were thinking about how to underline what this movie is without giving away what it is. And so the rough sketch, and I think if you've even read a synopsis of the movie, you know by now that this is essentially a movie about a 15 year old guy named Gary Valentine, living in the San Fernando valley in 1973, who comes upon a 25 year old woman around or thereabouts who is kind of struggling with her way in life. The 15 year old guy is an actor and a hustler and a person really on the move and the young woman, Alana is someone who seems a little bit lost. And they meet at this critical moment in their lives and something happens and then things start to happen. Now, whether you want to describe this movie as a romance as an act of seduction as just an episodic journey through this period in history, obviously, Paul is the dawn of the king. Yes, this is really his home more ways than one. And so this is an opportunity for him to kind of paint on the canvas with which he's most familiar..

"Traumatizing sequence in the donut shop. But he ends up leaving with the money that he needed to open up bucks super super stereo store. Whatever he calls it So there there. Is this weird way. In which i think. This movie sometimes gets a bad rap for being judgmental of its characters or reducing them to sort of caricatures or or stereotypes of this industry or punishing them as a result of of their impropriety or perceived. Societal impropriety But i i actually think it's quite the opposite there. There there seems to be like a a karmic balancing. That you know paul thomas anderson sort of like steps in and hands him the money through this sheer force of coincidence which is something that he goes on to explore in like every single other one of his. I mean magnolias. The text with that cow obsessed. He is with with just circumstance in coincidence. Hard also has touches of that with like the thing about John c. riley's matches in his pocket lighting on fire. He he does have these weird things that that just seem like random moments of the universe either punishing people or calling them in in one direction or another but in this one. I think it's definitely utilized to to reward these folks in a society that has otherwise spurned. Them yeah i think that. That's i've add that onto another reason. I love this movie in. This movie is so cool is like it's it's weirdly indulgent like but in a good way like like that that donut shop seen as you know that would get caught in another movie before it even got shopping. Do we really need this to tell the story. You know what i mean but like no sanderson's telling this three hour epic opus. you know. And and he will go on these tangents. You know even the well. The william h macy wonders where. He's going you know finding the wife and stuff. That's a really awesome. Really fleshes out his character and in. Yeah it's super tragic but like like that you know just how he shoots at everything. It's also unique and works together. But i think that it's contrary to a lot of mainstream movie would be made like like this. I don't know there. Would texture ask touch like when you when you read all the fucking screen writing books. It's like does. This scene pushed the protagonists narrative forward and explicit way dedicated a but one of the things that this scene. Let's take for example. The bill macy scene where he Looks for his wife goes out and gets the gun then shoots her and then kinda kills himself or whatever one of the things that these films or that these do is they add texture to what it is that this film is kind of presenting in terms of its concepts right about like masculinity about sexual prowess about the you know this is also a time where you have an industry. The porn industry that is oftentimes viewed from feminist lens as allowing women to have control over their pleasure in. How pleasure is is pursued in bodily tawny right so there's actually a really interesting essay that i just want to give a quick shout out to It's on open access so it's on like a digital com or creative comments. It's called historical omission.

"Of his his sort of mo jo with regards to having to transition video his his traditional financier is now in prison. So he's having to kind of make a deal with the devil with philip baker hall. Who's a big proponent of what's what's his name floyd gondoliers a great name Who's such a big proponent of videotape You know there is this sense. That like yes. It ends on an optimistic note on the surface. But there is still the implication that as much as i do think there is a genuine fondness and even love between these characters. There still is a sense. Though that jack may be using eddie as much as eddie as using jack by the end of the film. Because i've kind of lost my mojo. And i know that when we were really clicking he and i he was my muse if i can get him back in front of the camera maybe we can make a go out of this thing again even if it is on videotape. Let's make film history on videotape as he keeps saying during a what's what's the segment that he does with roller grill on the on the prowl. It's actually based on an original or not an original. It's based on a thing that was called on the prowl. Where there were porn producers. Who would do that with the video cameras back in the day but i can't remember what they call it in the movie itself. My mind is blanking right now but at apologies. I only bring that up to say ryan. I don't think the movie is necessarily a tragic ending. But i do think there. There are enough seeds planted to to suggest that like well. They may not be out of the woods yet. You know there are still tough times ahead for this industry and by extension these carrick well and this is right before the aids epidemic too. Which is why brought up. John holmes earlier right so if this is the transition from late seventies early eighties. Here's his right before that happens. Which is going to ravage the or at least effect the film industry and a lot of ways I think a couple other themes that are interesting that we can think about one that is you know how we had like the meta a alarm and we used to have like a problematic alarm. I think we should add like a freudian or edible alarm so every time. There's like fuck in freudian theme. And i bring it up..

"Shots to jared. Who like the meta idea. Is this transition from film and cinema to videotape which is pta. Also one of those guys that bemoans the transition from film to digital as well is that one of the he's very much Yeah like people should go watch. And i think there's quotas like yeah like the experience of people watching pictures exposed through light onto a wall should never go away. I think he is kind of a film purist in that since. I don't know how you know what he thinks digital. He's not as outspoken. A disciple of like film as a as a capture an exhibition format as someone like christopher nolan or tarintino. Who's probably the most the most vocal of those disciples. I think sometimes to his detriment That's a totally different conversation Would i what i really love about. Paul thomas anderson is that while he has the he has the luxury and privilege of being able to work on on his kind of preferred format. shooting on film and even recently a premiering. A phantom thread his his last feature in seventy millimeter and a handful of in a handful of three theaters. He is someone who is by all accounts always putting his neck out for independent filmmakers and and maintaining a sense of like a of What's what's the word He has more more of an an embraced towards democratizing effects of going to say he's not he's not trying to get keep so much which is something. Yeah let's let's talk about this on the other side of the recap because this is one of the themes or to bring up but just yeah. Yeah yeah yeah so. This is great so just as like a to to kind of God it what's the fucking word. I'm looking for where you foretell. Or she just i forgot to to give my own ranking of where this falls in my piece you sorry in the it sounds like raymond are opposite. Ends of the spectrum of pta. 'cause i to me. This is the ultimate i. I definitely prefer yes. The answer is yes but boogie nights number one by far then i'm going to go. There will be blood. Which i guess. That's his second half was created to me. It's kind of. I guess is in the middle but then it's kind of the transition and then i'm going to go filmmaker. He is magnolia punchdrunk. Love and it's on. I don't like new stuff i do. I think it's super interesting like phantom thread with super interesting. i wouldn't call it a classic by any stretch compared to these others and then master i cut up in the same boat and advice. I deplore i hate. I remember you saying that and i want to shake him. What were you thinking that. Yeah so that's definitely at the bottom. And then hardy. Yeah you know. He's obviously got some growing pains. And i you know. Maybe i think even the version i saw what he doesn't full even subscribe to so anyway the the. That's my list. Yeah so this is top three for me. My favorite is there will be blood for me. It's not even close. I mean there will be blood for me as a top. Ten film I just think that it is. It is a masterpiece from top to bottom and it covers an era of like american history. That i'm very fascinated with as well. I'm really interested in stories of americana and stuff like that. And and this one a lot of a lot of pta films are exploring like l. a. right and I think that's really interesting. But being from la. I kind of. I don't care as much about l. a. as People a lotta times..

With all these streaming services films knobs have to be in seventh heaven, right right from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed Kim in for. Molly would. It's Oscar season a time when we celebrate the history of film, but what if you want to actually sit down and watch some classics that was the selling point of one streaming service film struck that AT and T recently shuttered fills drug showcased directors like Fellini, Kurosawa Kubrick. It was the darling of Sinophile for the two years it existed given that streaming giants like Netflix and Amazon seemed to be focused on making their own original content. Could the golden age of streaming actually mean that film history falls through the cracks and Hornets is senior film critic for the Washington Post. She has high level thoughts on the death of film strike and the future of classic film. She says film strike never released its subscriber numbers her best educated. Guess is about one hundred thousand compared to about one hundred and forty million Netflix subscribers that's tiny. But Hornets says the fan base for classic or indie films has. Value beyond sheer size. It's a highly engaged audience. It's a very loyal audience. I mean, they have value. So whether the movies themselves, quote, unquote, don't have monetary value. I would maintain that they do have value. You know, in terms of the people who watch them, and what they are willing to pay to watch them, and it's not just everyday viewers, but also filmmakers who care about access to a rich array of film history the day after films struck announced it was closing. I happen to spend time with Barry Jenkins who won the Oscar a few years ago, his movie moonlight won the Oscar for best picture. He's just out this year with an exquisite movie called spiel street could talk he is an ecstatic student of film, he's constantly reaching back into the cannon into the history of the medium to enlarge and elaborate on his own emerging vocabulary and language and so for someone like him he was Crespi. On that it was going away. Because you know, when you talk about people like Barry Jenkins or Paul Thomas Anderson or Guillaume or del Toro, all of whom came out very very vociferously to support the site a resource like film struck helps these emerging artists to find their voice. And then it's also educating all of us viewers in terms of what they're doing. I think it was sighted of Warner Brothers and their corporate overlord AT and T not to kind of see the value in that. As the new streaming giants court the best in the business to make their original content or today says showing support for the canon of great film could be a hook. I think that's what Netflix has proven this year so aggressively going after people like I'll find so Koran and spending so much on the Oscar campaign for his movie for people like Martin scores says he will these are film lovers. And I mean, I think as they're trying to impress these tours and convince them. To come with them because they love art, and they love or tourism, a show of good faith would be to express your support of this archival legacy work. I mean, I think that could really sway somebody. She says despite the demise of film strike. There are other ways to stream vintage movies art house and cult films and other non mainstream cinema. There's a subscription service fan door. Also, canopy with a K available with your public library card and the library of congress L O, C dot gov. I got admit I'm not a major film buff. So I asked Hornets for suggestions on what to watch something. That's not a superhero movie, she suggested not a film, but a TV show on stars. And I kind of freaked out. Can I tell you what I'm obsessed with it's it's it's not even the one. I'm obsessed with speaking of stars is counterpart. I'm totally caught up on her part. We did this last week. I just don't know what I'm gonna do. I'm beside myself. I it's so good. Yeah. There's out. I've pretty good taste. I'm jed Kim. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

Researchers transformed tissue cells into skin cells to heal wounds

"In a world. First researchers have discovered a way to re grow the skin around a life changing wound technique that could avoid the need for skin grafts in the future. Scientists at least salt institute of biological studies in California used cell reprogramming to convert tissue cells into skin cells or mice on my excuse me. It was the culmination of a decades work. Dr Prodi ready is one of the authors of the study. So in the last few years, they knew of course, that's called programming. Basically, you can convert one suritai doing so in this case being new ladies. Says. So we says and can rotate them do. King says they're able to proliferate and migrate and cover the wounded idea and Jala would it take to re grow skin over say, if I had a nasty wound on my arm depends on how big the wounded and independence on how old you are. So you're you're young. And if it's not a big area, it's quite a busy to hear back. Again. There is still. That says cannot gate anymore. So we can make an example of patients so many other big bird the only option right now, we have in the clinic ace your skin crap from part of your body and pretty. As much bigger insights, you cannot do. So that's why you need an alternate to opportunities case weekend program that says that are quality data and happy to recover. So that is another next goal for as little as two in Burundi's method, rare in can be more applicable. Animas. So that's going to repeat. Could this potentially be used as a way of combating aging if if we can we grow damage skin? That's something people are going to want to now. Right. So interest is like Hobie regeneration came like how old and if you get like scratches on wounds how fast it can be. So that is one next Paul interest for us and at the same time, then we talk about aging there is another important expert that comes onto the table is especially the women. They would like how we can prevent the punishment of printers. Which is a major concern from the point of view. So I think this is like the proof of concept stating this study by pitches has a potential to open Indo mainly white at let's talk to produce ready from the sulk institute of biological studies in California.
