How To Make Sure Your Child Learns This School Year

"Once we've thought through our own needs as workers if people in the household, you know the next question is what about our kids what our kids need now's a great time to ask how did my kids? Do when they were learning online in the spring Howard they feeling about the possibility of doing more online learning. Are they self directed learners or was it a real struggle for them? You know younger kids especially in some kids with disabilities. humbling learning is tough. You know what I'm hearing is that a lot of families are taking this enforced pause to trying to think through what their kids need you. Know you kind of have to assess what are your kids really have to have right now to get through this year in a positive way and for a little more perspective on this, I talked to someone who's really an expert in self directed learning. Crystal Dillard. She's the director of natural creativity, which is a homeschooling resource center in Philadelphia and what that means is that she helps children from really diverse backgrounds. kind of design learning experiences that really meet them where they're at. So that can mean anything from studying. Physics to woodworking photography and she told me that often even within the same family, you'll find children have really different needs. There may be one young person who is responsive to what is being given. You know in terms of. Schooling right now, but there's almost always one who is just not responding to. It doesn't WanNa do it, and the parent is really put in a position that either I'm going to be forcing a young person to sit down and do something they don't WanNa do or I'm going to really think about whether is as important as what I even though it wasn't. So. Don't forget to sit down with your kids and ask what would they prefer an an unpack it yeah I mean. So let's talk about the actual options, right what is your day? What is your week? Potentially? What is your semester going to look like if you're in a public school district and we know many of them are going to be online only in the fall Then that's really going to be the backbone or the default for many of you out there. So obviously staying. Enrolled will keep you supporting your Public School District It is free besides obviously the cost of a Wifi device and the time it takes to oversee it. Yep, and you should know that in our reporting, what we've come across is that a lot of districts really feel like what they have to offer is going to be a little bit more robust than what they had in the spring. Maybe more live instruction may be more sophisticated in terms of what the teachers are doing you know. And, that might be better or worse for you. Right because live instructions sometimes means more to coordinate and getting different kids and multiple different zooms. But we also know is that your school's remote learning is not going to fill the whole what would be the school day So then what do you do and I have been collecting lots of information and resources some you know summer gonNA use free courses paid courses live recorded. There's so many different options if you're looking for places to fill in. Gaps, I think a really good tip is to look at your own states learning standards that can be really detailed for the grade especially in things like science think about what topics you might want to cover for a particular grade with every of energy for there's there's a wide range of things I want to mention. You know there's also kind of prefabricated home school curricula in a box. There's a Montessori ones or some other ones that are really kind of everything you need to know to homeschool. There's individual online live classes, right? Your your kids trying out school year my eleven year old is taking a class on out school. Ethics in sports. And it was just like you know there were there were list of hundreds of classes and a buddy of his is just taking this for an hour a day. He did one just today he loved it. It location is no longer an object, right? So so what could you do in terms of alive class? One out of the box resource is a fiber. I know some people that are looking for tutors for their kids including international language tutors who could be really cheap by our your local. Dancer IOS and places. Piano teachers are probably all offering versions of what they do online now. So that's an interesting option to consider that socially distanced There's always software based learning resources like Khan Academy to Supplement and don't forget your networks. My mom is teaching art to my daughter's once a week they really get into that. That's like an hour long activity they learn about different artists and they. Make work. There is high school students and college students all over the country that are banding together to offer tutoring sessions and I would recommend picking one or two. You know a great interest for your kids or something that they really need to work on or both to kind of supplement what's going on with with the remote learning once you have a handle on your own needs and your kids needs. then. It's time to kind of look at your broader community and think about bringing other kids into the mix so that your your kid can have some social interaction, right? Yeah and obviously you're GonNa want be on the same page with the. In that circle you'RE GONNA. WanNa talk about you know how big is your circle? How much exposure do you have on a regular basis to other families in their habits and obviously you're also GONNA want to double down on the basics handwashing mask wearing again, the honor system anytime you start thinking about spending time with other families you need to have a conversation, those families you need to be able to discuss and bring up what precautions everyone's taking. If there's been any exposures, are you comfortable asking someone to take a test one mother I talked to who is thinking a lot about forming a pod because she has? An only child is prudence. Carter, and she also has some respiratory health issues herself. So she needs to be extra careful really really be able to like talk openly about testing and taking temperature washing hands and social distancing and everybody has to be admitted to that. You know let through kind of the different options you have as a household or with family or friends What about if you decide you need to and can afford to pay for childcare What are we looking at here? I? Mean some families are talking about sharing a tutor or a sitter. Some districts are starting to open up subsidized care. And we know there are lots of childcare centers that have reopened although they may have fewer slots, available and then of course, there in home daycares that are interestingly you know opening their doors to slightly older kids who you know they. They might have previously focused on pre kindergarten kindergarten. and. Now maybe they are taking second third fourth

Coaching with Lucien Lu - Piano Teaching Via Flash Briefing

"Right so here we are with the one and only Lucien Lou. Lucien for people that were at project voice. You are no stranger to those people there. Because you're the guy carrying around all the camera gear and doing an amazing job of capturing all the content solution. Welcome to the PODCAST. We have a really cool project that we're going to work on together. Nobody take a moment here. Tell everybody who you are terrier. Really appreciate that. The shout and everything. It's just been super amazing to actually work with the one. And Only Dr Carrie Fisher Terry V as they call him on the streets Stupor Super Amazing. Learn tons of things and I enjoy being. Ll Rock for the few days that we were there. So superseded about flash briefings and who? I actually had a question. As Piano Teacher I teach panel of how can I actually get on this flash briefing How can I make it Alexa skill? Like so many questions as an entirely new person it just completely I do not know anything about flash briefings or waste so who else to go to turvy so awesome. That's that's awesome. So this is this is this is the idea. I think this is a pretty neat idea because what we're going to do is I want to help out Lucien Lesions and awesome guy like I say. He's a big big part of the team. Now part of the Doctor Terry Fisher brand team and election candidates for cells in everything that's going on and Lucien wants to as he said create a flash briefing and this is going to be an opportunity for the audience to listen in and hear about what goes into creating a good fuss briefing in the process in what you need to consider. And what's important? What's not important and how we can do this. So Lucien right now the way things are because I think this is good for people to know. Do you have much of a presence on the voice devices because it's interesting to note people where you're starting from a complete scratch. Man I have no podcasts. Have NO FLASH BRIEFING GROUND ZERO RIGHT NOW all right? But you're on tick tock and I have to say that when we're in Chattanooga crazy you happen to run into a fan that new. Your doc is not true man so so huge style that actually super crazy it is amazing that you guys see that But Yeah Tick Tock. Video is my more my presence. Youtube is grim. And Tick Tock but man. I'm saying like audio being the next thing asked where I wanna be okay. Perfect and being a piano teacher. I mean it makes a lot of sense okay. So here's the so. We got the premise. You WanNA create a flash briefing. You WanNa get on voice so just share a little bit of your thoughts now like what? What do you want this flash briefing to do? What's the purpose of a vast region definitely so Every day I I WANNA be able to give advice to people trying to learn piano and so whether it's a tip that helps that helps you learn how to practice better our sight reading your training. It's something that will help you become a better musician. A tip that allows out of practice. I'll give you an exerciser play. Not In the name exercises everyday. Great Great and Annette's sounds perfect little short little bit little tip and somebody can can go ahead and so one of the things that I always talk about. When I'm thinking about you know creating briefings to help people help helping other people to create by sweeping is what problem are you solving and I that may be self explanatory for this but it sounds like the idea here is. You're trying to help a person who's wants to learn how to play the piano. Be More efficient with that is that is that sort of a fair statement hundred percent on all right and does it matter if they're like a beginner or more advanced person or have you thought about like who would who's going to be geared towards us right so this one is going to be geared toward toward the beginners the people who are jumping onto. Actually this APP called simply piano so many kids are so many new adults jumping into piano are learning from APPS and so i. I don't doubt that they would be the ones to be jumping on board with a voice device take advice and to learn more about Danone and transition from just an APP. Just a game that they play into an actual skill that they have so. That's right where I see appropriate That's awesome and obviously one of the things is you know if they're going to be listening to your first briefing. They wanted. They wanted to be listening to something. That's got some expertise and we didn't say this you have. You do have a lot of expertise. You have the credentials so maybe just share that with us. Like what makes you a guy that can teach piano appreciate that? Yeah man it's So my background. I've been playing piano since I was four. Twenty four years old right now. Seven plan for twenty years.

Gretchen Carlson: From Miss America to Bombshell Journalist

"Today Gretchen. Carlson joins us on skimmed from the couch as a career journalist. She's also become an advocate for equality and dignity in the workplace. Carlson sued the former Fox News Chairman and CEO. Roger Ailes in two thousand sixteen. Her bombshell lawsuit ignited national conversations about sexual harassment and has inspired her advocacy work. We are very excited for this conversation Gretchen. Welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks for having me. I feel like I've known you guys for so long in. It's like so great to be able to have this discussion. So thanks for having me. So we're GONNA start our all interviews with just skim your resume for us. Oh my gosh well. I'll start with the latest editions which were never expected to be on my resume. Which are you know being one of the poster women for sexual harassment in the workplace? That's not necessarily something you aspire to when you're putting together your first resume and talking about goals and challenges in a life of head of you but I would say that what else has been on my resume over. My life has been series of accomplishments where challenges were in front of me and I really went for them and so the same thing is true for this latest endeavor that I've been doing for the last three years which is to really try and tackle this problem of workplace harassment. So that would be at the top of my resume. Now the very short version following that would be Fox News for eleven years before that five years at CBS news before that a lot of local markets including Dallas Cleveland Cincinnati and Richmond before that being the first classical violinist to be Miss America and before that studying at Oxford University getting my degree from Stanford University. Being High School Valedictorian and being a concert violinist as a child. See your super relaxed. I I know after. I've had some milestone birthdays. I become trying to become my new goal to be more chill and it's actually really liberating to be more relaxed and just let things sort of ebb and flow. Women are reared to be perfectionists and socialized to not color outside the lines. And I'm really really really trying to do more of that and advocating that for younger women as well. We've seen and heard a lot about you recently. Obviously we saw you on TV for years. And then we've seen movies depicting your story. What's one thing that you can't Google? You can't watch that people don't know about you. Oh my gosh all things I cannot do so I cannot whistle her. I think it's actually is genetic I can't do. You can't do that either. That is genetic okay so those two things. I can't parallel park. Oh Oh my gosh yeah. I only have done it once in my life to pass my driver's sixteen years old. Just got a card. That is supposed to be able to do that for me. But I haven't had time to set it up. Tesla I did. I've tried to it works. Oh my Gosh my relationship with driving. Oh my gosh okay so sometime this weekend or whenever I have time I need to really actually read the manual and figure that out I grew up a Chubby kid. I struggled with my weight for all of my teenage years and I actually feel that. That is really inspirational for young women especially today. Because they're so much more emphasis on exterior which. I always try to advocate for for young people and older women to that really. It's you know it's about what's inside. We should build our self esteem from the inside out. People look at television personalities. And you probably get the same thing with what you do that. They think that there haven't been any struggles or that they're just perfect and that certainly hasn't been the case with my life at all. I mean I really feel like successes truly appreciated when you've gone through struggles and failures and overcome those those hurdles. I totally agree one at just sort of take a step back. What was your family situation? What was your childhood like? Just Kinda give us who you were before you became a person on TV. Well I look at my family. Life is idyllic said small town in Minnesota with parents who believed in me and told me every day. I could be anything I wanted to be in this world and that was just incredibly important to hear that every single day they of course said with the caveat is GonNa take a lot of work and so I grew up with the Protestant Work Ethic. You know of incredible hard work. I also grew up with huge philanthropic spirit. My grandfather was a minister. My parents truly believed in giving back to the community and I think that that's the greatest gift that I can pass along to my two teenage children to understand that to truly be a whole individual. It's about giving to others. That was a huge part of my upbringing and a huge part of the work. I'm doing now and where that came from. How quickly did you realize did other people realize you were a violin prodigy that came about as a total fluke? I actually apparently? According to my parents I would hear commercial sort of songs on TV. And I would go in. Plunk them out on the piano. And my mom's like I think we need to get her piano lessons and then we went up the street to piano teacher. Who's our neighbor and she said. Oh she'll never be any good at piano. Hands are way too small and so why don't you go up to the local school and you know talk to them about a different instrument and I've got my first violin and it was just tiny you know it was like a foot long and I started playing it and it just clicked. It just became who I was. What's it like to be really good at something that young? I loved it. It taught me discipline. Where even if you put in ten minutes or thirty minutes a day got better at something and for kids at so important. Because that's something carried with me for the rest of my life that discipline I think about every single day release shaped however approached everything else in my life. It's something nobody can take away for me. It's a talent. It's something that I have made by myself and nobody can ever take that away and I think that's so crucial especially for young people today to be able to hone skills that they own. You went on to go to some of the most prestigious schools in the world and then became Miss America lightly. We talk us. They're like WHOA. Is that light Unexpected never on my radar screen. What's my mother? When I was seventeen I burned out on the violin and I quit and my parents were devastated and so I went off to concentrate academics and when I was doing some time over at Oxford University in England and got a phone call from my mom. She had gotten a brochure in the mail. On the Miss America Organization. She called me and she said I found something for you to do. I said what and she described to me. She said it's fifty percent talent. You have that it's thirty percent interview. You're smart you can do this and I'm like yeah mom but I'm also short I'm also from Minnesota which is not pageant state. I also played classical violin. And that's never one and I've never been patches ever before and nor have ever watched them and she was like well. I think you can do this. And my mom's an incredibly influential person in my life and is my sharp critic but also my biggest cheerleader was her motivation and wanting she wanted me to play the violin again. I mean that one hundred percent. This was to try and get me back onto my music career and so you know she and I became a team. I stopped out a Stanford my senior year because I realized if I was going to actually do this to do it. One hundred fifty percent had to give it one hundred and fifty percent and I couldn't be doing my studies at Stanford and tried to prepare fascinating and I want to just pause for a second because I would say you doing that. It's probably going against the popular decision or assumption Which is going against the grain. A little bit too. Like you know what? Actually I'm going to prioritize this. A lot of people would say stay in school. And obviously we're going to talk about how you went against the grain and other parts of your life talk just like what your personality was at that time what. Your confidence level was at a time. Well it was pretty high because I had done tremendous amount of violent competitions which by the way I never faced any gender discrimination or sexism with regard to that all they picked to play the best. They didn't care if you're a girl or boy and the same thing with my academics. I never any kind of discrimination early on in my life and so I was used to setting high standards and high goals and this was something that I knew nothing about but my mom and I really researched it from afar. Instead of participating. In a lot of competitions we researched it and we realize that for me if I was going to try and really try and achieve this that I couldn't be doing these two things at the same time when I went to tell the Dean at Stanford who happened to be a woman and I told nobody what I was doing by the way when I went to tell her though because I had to. She told me she thought it was the stupidest thing she'd ever heard of. And I said well okay. Let's see how it let's see how it turns out. Listen there's a tremendous amount of subjectivity in these kinds of competitions and lock and all of that but I needed to be truly prepared in order to have a chance. Say You win. You go on to become a journalist and you ultimately make the jump to Fox News where you become the Co host of the number one cable news morning show. You were there at a time at the network when it was just skyrocketing when you started there. Did you understand the impact? The network would have and the direction it would take. As kind of the cultural force that it became. Never I went there because it was an opportunity to a morning show five days a week. I was at CBS. When I originally went CBS. I was a correspondent. I was traveling the world. My goal and television was always to do a morning show. The goal was always to be able to do a show that incorporated hard news. Where he could showcase your your smarts but also showcase your sense of humor and lighter things and so I got the opportunity finally at CBS to do their weekend morning show and then when the Fox opportunity came about to do five days a week I mean that was just really what I had worked so hard to achieve and so I went over there you know as a as a total novice and Fox was just sort of starting out. At the time I learned a tremendous amount from cable because cable was totally different than network news in the sense that it was almost all ad Lib on their forget one of the first days I was there and I was doing a different show than the morning show and one line came over the AP wire that said something about that. The person that had assassinated leader in the Middle East been caught and the producers said to me in my ear. Just go with this for like three minutes. I was like what I don't even know who they're talking about. I don't even know if I can pronounce this name and I just had to dig deep and luckily my life. I had a lot of experience at doing that. Not exactly in this realm but I just started talking and it made me realized from that day. Forward that wow this whole different craft when you're at living and not reading teleprompter and so cable news is just a completely different talent than what I had been doing before. So we'll say that that was extremely beneficial to me to grow as a person and to get better at my

"While is far as I understand that if you're rich or fame. As you can do anything, you can do anything to women grab them by the pussy. I can't remember who said that. So I wanna think this week's co host Jared and Chris, Chris, what is the latest with you over at culture? Cassar talking about movies twice a week with my co host, Eric. We have a little bit more of a, oh, going to say it a little bit more of a millennial fin on movies rather than a deep dive. Look like you guys do over here or you do over here at the projection booth. So it's nice to come on a podcast and get to flex Mike mental muscles a little bit more than kind of talking about some stuff, cracking a couple jokes in kind of taken a look at whether or not you should watch movie versus analyzing movie. So if you're looking for a little bit more of a lighter take on on film, that's what we do over the culture cast. And we also talk about new movies, which I know with the projection booths. That's normally not something you do. I didn't see an Infinity war podcasts from the projection booth. I mean, we're going to do one on the night Latian next year. So that's about as close as he get.

"But with this from I don't wanna watch this again because of that NCA because it's so one eighty left town down a dark street with dead end. It almost makes the end of this film irredeemable in a way it and I don't. I don't like it and I don't say I don't like most things. I mean jokingly say, I don't like Michael bay movies, but the end of this film for me is very close verging on Henry portrait of a serial killer, which is one of those movies I refuse to really have anything to do with. And this end of this film is verging on that territory. For me, there's such a marked difference between irreversible in this film in so far as irreversible though we start off. Off. I think we start off in the light or maybe we go to the light. It's been awhile since I've seen it, but I, I remember there's there's happy parts to it. I think we end with the happiness as opposed to the misery at the beginning since it's all flipped around, right, but so much of that movie. I mean, the name of the club that the to is what the sewer is so much of that movie. So much of a versatile is in a sewer. And when you look at something like the piano teacher, it is almost all in the light ended his playing in this, this milieu of high art so much. You don't get that crazy like Brown note and de-stress music that they had in irreparable. You get Schubert and Bach, and all of these things you are living in this, this high art world. And so those moments where we delve deep makes it feel like it's even deeper like makes me feel like we're even in. A an a worse space because of where we've been throughout the majority of this film. And also let's be fair in reversible. Vincent Cassel does get a modicum of revenge again, this film, it kind of gives you as Erica gives Walter this foam gives you cinematic blue balls at the end in, you know, we're talking about that end shod we're talking about the her stabbing herself. And when she walks away when she's going down the street, mother is inside that building and it's almost like that building becomes mother, you know, is this institution and it is dwarfing her as she's walking down the street. I mean, it's like she might be leaving behind. I hope she's leaving behind hope. She's leaving mother behind, but it looms large over everything. I really don't know if I could accept if I believe that she can leave mother if she. Can change things. I mean to your point, maybe if she suddenly disabled herself, if now with that stabbing that she can't pit play the piano anymore, that now it's her left hand that needs the work. That would be it would almost be a great thing because she has been her mother's entree into that upper-class world into that world that that we see where you know Erica in the other guy or playing those piano duets where we meet Walter at the beginning where they have the instruments on the wall which are for show and not necessarily for playing where it's like, oh, look at this. This is the violin that was in the in this painting. This is the actual violin. So we have both musical instrument as a work of art as well as a work of art just hanging on the wall. So these people definitely have money, and this is the world to which mother aspires and without that meal ticket without. Erica anymore. Her life is kind of ruined as well, which I would be fine if if mother's life is ruined. Right, and I'm with you again, it goes to show kind of the the disconnect between reality and fantasy with Erica at the end walking away from everything. I mean, realistically, she can't do that in her fantasy. She probably thinks she can. But realistically, she walks away and she leaves her life behind what is she going to do? Tell someone what Walter did his, like you said his his family is clearly so wealthy that it wouldn't matter anyways. What she said because those with money in that regard when something like this happens, they're not the ones that are in problematic situation. So realistically, she tries to walk away from everything, but in reality, that's not how it works..

I was trying to think of with the the performance artist to makes video games that was me brokers v slash IRL, can't remember the name of the the woman who is actually the subject of that short. But I highly recommend that that won best documentary short, it Chicago underground this year. So obviously I recommend it since I was on the jury anyway. So I have to say, you know, we've talked about a lot of movies that this reminds us of and Hannah Kate hickeys like he's the oldest bad boy director that I can think of. I don't know if that's like even good term for him, but his movies are very unsettling and he fits to me in this kind of little shelf of filmmakers right now that are making movies that are they have something to say. But they always make me very uncomfortable. And as I'm watching this movie and especially as I'm watching at that one hour forty minute Mark that we're talking about before, which spoilers was the rape scene that we're talking about. I kept thinking of Gaspar no way, and I kept thinking of irreversible and the rape. I'm not sure which rape is worse. I don't know if we have a top ten rate rape listed that we can put together or feel that's already been done by BuzzFeed. But this is up there with one of it is as uncomfortable to me as the rape and irreversible I'm gonna go with this film is a little bit more uncomfortable due to the the length of it as opposed to well, I don't know, I guess. Yeah, I'm gonna go at this. I'm gonna stick tonight. Fucking guns. Don't be a bitch. I'm gonna go with this foam because this film it's it comes kind of out of left field in a way that it makes me with era versatile. I can still watch that movie..

And then you know how it is in any of you mixed from lucky second stance and the stubborn intentions than than runs the early films that you worked on. What were those like? I mean, were they primarily Austrian films? Did you have to go out of the country the going out to country? It's easy to say, but who was waiting for me. So. Make sense, and the jump was not much better. The situation. I could stop the work with the defense camera. I, I could stock news get drinks for the ocean division stations, and that was.

"You know if the gender roles in this movie were flipped. Suddenly we woke up tomorrow and the piano teachers about this older man and this younger woman kind of thing. I, I would be very uncomfortable, but if this was flipped, I could see that older man at the end of this, not stabbing himself, but taking out an AK, forty, seven, just leveling everybody at that concert. Hall. I mean, this is the kind of what you're talking about with like in cells and just the this whole idea, the violence and not understanding that knowing how to express yourself. If this was a man at the end, he wouldn't be stabbing himself. He would be stabbing someone else or you'll be murdering someone else. But it is so interesting that she chooses to express herself by stabbing herself in the shoulder and that look on her face that look on our faces fucking crazy. And I love that. Look, it takes me back every single time. I watched this to see that because she just has this this mania on her face someone described it. I was reading an article and somebody described it like a like an angry horse is how they said it was like what I've been, it'd this different ways. This time I watched it. I interpreted that she stabbed herself because she said to herself you, she's talking herself. You fucked up. You revealed yourself to somebody. You let your emotions take hold. And this guy is basically just a horrible person. And like, you know, because you're earlier before she said, I don't have a motions, and if I did, my intelligence is too strong to let them happen, and she let her guard down. She took a chance on this guy and he spat on her face. And now she's just like masochistic disappointed in herself. She stabs herself because fuck you for having emotions the way I interpreted it is. And this is something that I think the film does a little intentionally is juxtaposed era. Erica an- Anna against one another and the way I it it. It was Erica puts the glass in Anna's cokes and there's a line in the film that Anna's mom says, which is she may not ever recover and Erica looks at that. Probably I get. I don't know. This is the way I interpreted as she set Anna free to some extent from her mother and kind of the expectations in constraints that were being placed on her by her mother and go. Going to practice in trying to be the best piano and the way I interpreted the end of the film with that in mind this she stabs herself, setting herself free from everything that's come up into this point. Her mother Walter, the kind of the way she was perceiving her sexuality in an expectations, and she stabs herself and sets herself free similarly to the way she sets Anna free by placing the glass in her coat, and she sets herself free like she said, Anna free because at the end of the film, you c- Anna and she's happy in smiling, unlike the way you've seen her at the beginning of the film and the other seeds that fell. She sets herself free similarly to the way she set someone else free. And that's a little bit more like a positive spin on the ending the film in a way. She still stabs herself in almost apps over the heart, but it's more of a positive spin which with Hanneke made good look ever having a positive. Ending in the film. So probably my interpretation is completely off base. It doesn't just end after she stabs herself it, she stabs herself and then she walks away from the concert. She's not gonna go perform shoe bear, and I think that that's also really important to your point that she's now is she walking away from the life of music? Is that what we're meant to believe that that represents? I also Mike, you mentioned in cells. If you if you don't know what Mike stocky about with in cells you should watch the documentary evidence on YouTube, but there's a documentary on YouTube called shy boy IRL which is in real life if you've never seen it, it's a, yeah, it's it would be what is film is flipped in it.

"I mean, I've come to a point in my life where I just have accepted that all images have a profound effect on how we view life. You know, like all the violent video games I played when I was a kid all the movies I've seen. I mean, do I think they've made me a bad person? No, but I'm no longer under the allusion that they haven't affected me. I think they absolutely have. Yeah. And again, the whole does violent video games make you a psychopath or is using using racial pejoratives or derogatory language, which by the way, someone that the word fucking shitter derogatory in this day in age absolately ridiculous. But again, the fact that people think that that is a thing that like it adversely affects you, it does affect you, but it can be adversely or positively. It's kind of from person to person. So I, I agree with you, it's it is ridiculous to think that it doesn't affect you, but it it's not necessarily negatively made some of the best. Directors now have been affected by the films that they watched his kids. I mean, there's interviews with gear Modell Toro talking about how he was in the theater, watching the thing in the fly and total recall in those films shaped who he is director now and without films like the those films, we would never have gotten Gildo Toro and his eye for film. So there's a positive reaction to what he was watching as a kid as a teenager in his formative years. Yes. So since we're talking about desire and media and stuff like that, instant, hey, who were already a little bit off topic is is? Yeah. Like the thing that the thing that I've come across that I really think that media, whether it's video games TV it has definitely influenced people's desires. You know in in when you see things on the internet, like in cells and stuff like that, I always talk about how like, you know, yes, there are a lot of toxic things about that community. But at the same time, I do think that there is a whole generation of people whose whose almost subconscious now conscious. Desires have been programmed into them. So I think that's one negative thing that at least I've been reflecting on recently. Yeah. The last time I had my desires programmed into may might just opened up like a big vagina and somebody stuck a VHS tape inside of me. Oh, fuck, yeah, video drums. Favorite movies. Oh, yeah. What he was talking about. I'm with oblivion. You mean? Sure, yeah. Okay. Marsha clue in bride of sure, whatever those as far as that was conservative, same person that is one of the greatest films ever made. That's one of actually the favorite. My favorite episodes we've done on our podcast, show me the meaning. We should definitely check out. We're all here. We're all podcasters and we all love video drove that must say something about us because one of my favorite episodes we've done on my podcast was video Drome because it's similar to this film in a way that it gets you talking about a topic that's important in this day and age. I mean, this film is not that old. I say that, but fuck this film seventeen years old was made two thousand one. If you wanna if you're my age and you wanna feel old, but it talks about stuff that important now and it's it's, it's pressing and it's a pressing issue, and it's an important issue people. Now, similarly, video drum which talks about the way we consume media in the way media affects us in the way that peop. People affect the media intern. I mean, I know Mike pry doesn't want me to bring this up, but those certain subset of fans of a certain franchise who have gone out of their way to make certain people associated with said franchise miserable. As soon as I'm done on this podcast, Russia talking about this on my podcasts, it's this relationship where you can see it in this film where the her belief about what sex and intimate intimacy should be a, not only affects who she is and what she wants, but that it also affects Walter, you're, you're supposed to believe it affects him, but then you look at the end of the film and he seemingly shirks off any responsibility that or feeling or anything. Again, we're not really able to see what happened to him after he left, but we're led to believe what the way. Film ends that he is a complete and utter, either socio path..

"I mean, I just saw a short film and I wish I could remember the name of it. I saw the Chicago film festival and it was by this, this young lady who she makes games and she does all these other things and she's just like, oh yeah, I've grown up with porn hub and I'm just like my God how, yeah, I guess you're old enough to have grown up with porn hub. How can that? How does that affect you as a person that that is your exposure to pornography for so long? I mean, when I was growing up, pornography was very difficult to find and now it's very easy to find. How does that affect you? This probably been tons of studies. I mean, I from what I understand anal sex is. Very, very, very prevalent now -mongst the youth because that was right at the top of the alphabet ical list. So like anal and Asians were right there near the top of the list Jesus Christ, Mike. Okay. Hold on. So I if you've listened to either my podcast or or the projection booth before and I've been on or you've listened to Mike and is collaboration, podcasts, culture, tapes. You're welcome for that slick plug. You know that I am much younger than Mike, Jared. I don't know how old you are. I'm thirty. Okay. So you're two years older than I, I grew up with online pornography and being able to. I mean, I had a computer when I was like ten or twelve, so I was able to go and look at porn online. I mean, we didn't have porno, but there was free pornography online. And I mean, I would shudder to think that it didn't affect my sexual proclivities in one way or another. And I think that the generational way that people. Consume pornography and are exposed to sexuality in sex does shape their ideas about what sexism, what it can't be, what it will be back in the day. Jeez, playboy they didn't even show the woman's labia. It was. It was, I mean, completely. It was hair next. Not a thing anymore. I mean, go, I mean, now a woman who has a vagina hair on it, that's that's a fetish. Let's finish for now. And it's just surprising to see the way that pornography changes with the times, but also changes the times in the proclivities of the people that are watching it. But yeah, anal now is like not even an issue. I mean that avait used to be something that was taboo. And now any porn site you go to. If you don't do anal as a porn star, I'm sure your viability visibility drops. Fifty percent. I'm sure. So. Again, it's it's the changing times as someone who grew up with pornography. I think it's given me a broader sense of what I like and what I don't like in probably a deeper kind of interest in certain things that prior generations probably had zero to very little exposure to and we're probably chastised for even wanting to have any exposure to it. I e Erica in this film, her interest in Beedi SM which again is a product of being repressed by her mother. But again, SM in this day and age, fifty shades of grey is mainstream. Their moms reading this book about this. It's a piece of shit. Okay. So I really don't even want to explain the fucking movie, but the fact that Bedia Sam is mainstream. Now beady SM I put in quotations because I know and you guys know that that's not what Bedia SM is that is Bedia send through the lens of someone who has no idea what they're doing. But one of sex with a teenage vampire, if you don't know what I'm talking about, look it up. It does change your sex. Jewel behavior and what you look for sexually..

"So he gets to the point where she has been leading him along so much that he snaps and because again, she's expecting something from him that he is not really able to really comprehend. She's wanting to do some really hardcore beady SM if her letter is to be believed that that's. Exactly what she wants. So at the end of the film when he affectively rapes her on the floor before that he kicks her in the face if feels like a lot of really in an inability on his part to understand what she wants an immaturity on his part to be able to like understand it. He's just disgusted by it end. So he takes his disgust out on her because he's disgusted that she would want that from him. And he's also disgusted that she would even think that he would be interested in doing that with her. But one of the things we've been talking about how this is a film about someone who's emotionally arrested development. So although I agree with you that if we were to believe that Erica is like an adult with a capable mind, who decides that I wanna go into Bedia Sam, then I think that you'd be right, but are we to believe that she is even motioning mature enough to know what she wants? I don't think that she knows very much about sex at all and that what she. Knows is what she sees in those porn films or what she sees when she's avoi- s and out amongst the cars in the drive in theater, watching people having sex inside of their cars. I don't think she's had any experience with these things in that she is just probably built up this fantasy library of things that she's seen in movies or thought about or read or something. She does not strike me as someone who actually wants the things that are inside of that letter that she gives him. And that could be me being a really horrible person discounting someone's fantasies or their desires. But that's my feeling is that when she even starts giving him blow job in the bathroom with their first sexual encounter. The first thing that came through my head was while she just watched someone give a blow job in that porn film. This is probably what she knows. She knows that men are supposed to enjoy this. This looks into. Acting to her, you know, it might not be the enjoyment thing might be the. This looks interesting. Let's try it. I'm surprised that she didn't completely do it up like the porn film get on her back. So the guy could fucker face that way, though there is some face fucking in this. I thought that there is actual fucking fucking after the in the hockey scene. I didn't realize that there was face fucking going on until she ended up spitting up come and I was like, okay, that's what was going on. And then again, he tries to degrade her and starts talking about how she stinks and all this stuff. And it's just like, this seems to be like Beedi SM one, a one like the beginners class. Whereas just like while you stink, you should move out of town 'cause you stink so much as like, are you trying to degrade her like a fantasy or you really feeling this way? I go back to what I said before. It's it's a child. He's child for fuck sake. It's it's you smell. It's. Good Lord, like you, you don't. You really have any notion as to what she wants and to be fair, I would agree. She doesn't really know what she wants either. She's been taught sex by porn and either way she still victim of her mother. But again, like there. I mean, there are studies show that people who learn about sex through pornography have like enemy to some extent. I mean, if you think about it have a im- improper but ill, advised view of what sex will be when you have it versus what people in pornography are having with one another. Also, I, I'd like to point out Mike that talking about puking up, come welcome to the projection with folks. Jesus. The the, the, the levels of shit that we've talked about on this podcast already would make me blush, even on my own podcast. I'm very curious about what some of the next generations are going to be like that have been exposed to put unquote free porn on the internet. Pretty much in say, were kids..

"Right. And that's, that's one of the great things about this. This movie is this whole idea. Of, you know, she wants to be humiliated, belittled controlled all of these things, but you want it done in a way that satisfies her. And one of the things that I find the most fascinating is that when she's talking to him and trying to lay out like, listen, I'll I'll be, you know, your submissive, I'll do all this stuff for you, and she goes over to her Clausen. She's like, you can choose what I wear. And I'm just like, wow, she's kind of replacing one control system with her mother with another control system, which is Walter because mom has to approve everything that Erica wears has to approve every piece of clothing that even comes into the house. And here she wants Walter now to go head pick out what I wear and it's just like the most supplicating thing that you can possibly do for Walter as you can dress me. You can have me boy or whatever you want me to wear. And I just, I feel so bad when he's just laughing at her and belittling her and. All of these desires that she's had for so long. And she again, I guess going to the dog metaphor that I just had with this dog treat and a cage the way that she lays down on the floor. And you know does like that dog thing where it's like belly up, you know, just I'm here, I'm available. You can tear into me if you want, but you know, I am submitting myself to you and he just wants nothing to do with it. I got another question for you guys. That's similar to the question I asked before, but do you guys think that she wrote the letter then for him, or did she write this litter years ago waiting to give it to someone special? I think she wrote it for him. I get that the thing I I mentioned before where I said it was the the right things that she wanted, but for the wrong person in the wrong reason, I think she wrote it for him, but I think she had it in her head for a very long time. And when we, when we look at the character of Walter, he is. I mean, he is for all intents and purposes, we're never told his age, but it's very clear that he is like a child like a teenager, like emotionally immature to the point where he thinks that the way maybe a teenager thinks that like a Bedia simulation ship is like kicking someone in the face so hard to break their nose like that's what he thinks she wants at the end of the film and that I mean, I mean, there probably are people out. I don't wanna discredit that that there probably are people out there that like that. But it's very clear that the character that she is portraying the film is not wanting him to do anything that isn't, you know, I would say it's on the farther end of the spectrum towards sexual prowess and maybe more sexually explicit than a lot of people do in their daily life. But it's, it goes to show that she has been waiting for someone to come along and jumped at the first opportunity regardless of who it w-. Was, and this, this kids age and emotional maturity gets in the way of her being able to really enjoy herself and find that person that she wants to be sexually to the point where she writes this letter to him, and he acts like a teenager, reading it, spitting it back in her face making light of something that she very takes very seriously. And again, it's just. Propsed to henna key and and the actor who portrays Walter and Isabel who pair for that scene where he's reading that letter being insanely uncomfortable and really upsetting. You don't know if she wrote that beforehand or not. That is a very good question. I mean, she might have had all that stuff written down on her fetlock profile, but I don't think so. What do you have written on your life? Profound. My. So you guys interpret that win. He comes to her house at the end and basically abuses her. He's not doing it right. I guess when I watched it, I was almost so do you guys know slab Lesiak the philosopher, the talks about movies. Sometimes he made the perverts guide to cinema. He talks about this movie and in his interpretation, and he's a laconic psychoanalysis or psychoanalyst..

"This whole game of control where is exerting control finally over something and what is not necessarily too happy about it though we kind of is at times, especially when cheese performing some filet show on him, but then she stops. And so again, exerting control on the situation. Here's a thing that I think this film does a good job of portraying that. I don't think a lot of things do a very good job of retraining, especially a lot of mainstream stuff involving like Bedia Sam and sub and Dom relationships is that the preconceived notion is that the sub in the relationship essentially relinquishes all power to the dominant in this film. Erica is. The sub in the later parts of the film shoot writes that letter to him detailing, everything she wants him to do to her. And in this scene, you kind of see how the preconceived notion about the sub being the one not in power isn't really the case because she still wants him to be dominant in this scene, but she takes away all of his power over and over again while still trying to be the sub to his dominant. And it's really interesting because you have films out there like, you know, the garbage that is fifty shades of grey that refuses to paint those kinds of relationships in a way that's realistic and it's it kind of takes part what a lot of there's a is a healthy community in the United States in the world that are into those kinds of things. And so it's refreshing to see a film actually give the community and this kind of relation. Ship a more realistic spin as opposed to all the sub in the Dom. The sub has all the power takeaway, and Erica has a fair amount of power in the entire film up until the the very end. And even you could make the case at the end of them, she still does, but it's really refreshing to see this scene her stopping him over and over again while he thinks that he's the one that's in control will after she gives him that letter. I know I'm jumping ahead a little bit. She's really trying to, as I say the community top from the bottom. 'cause it's just this whole like, you can do this. You can do this. You can do this in. You need to call me these names and you need to do this and just like outlining everything in the smallest detail for him, or it's just like, you can't do this one, but you can do this and I wanted to do this that and it's just like, okay, lady. Who's in charge here? Is he in charge? Not really. You're in charge. I mean, there's the whole idea of submission versus Pacific. She. She is. She is not passive in this in if anything, she's almost too aggressive in her submission, if that makes any sense. She's just like, no, you're gonna do this. No, you're gonna. Listen to me say this like she won't relinquish that control. She is still the piano teacher even when she is supposed to be in this submissive roll with since you're mentioning that scene, I wanted to ask you guys. See, she brings out that box and in the box she's gone SM gear that we can assume she's never used. How long you think she's had that box. Do you think she just got all those things as she'd been as she had this desire festering in her for years and chief finally is in the appropriate mental space to share this fantasy with somebody? What do you guys think? I think that she's had the box for a lot of years and she leaves it under her bed and looks at it longingly from time to time and Bosley cuts herself thinking about it. This film has a lot of themes of repression and repressing one sexuality either. Forcibly or doing it yourself. And so I mean, again, I feel like again with the cutting with the box of the Bedia Sam toys underneath her bed, I think this is a long time coming, no pun intended. What do you think about Walter made her decide that this is the one? This is the guy I'm going to reveal my fantasy too. Well, I mean, like you guys said about the actress who plays Erica, Isabela, repaired, chichi. I don't wanna say she looks from being this film, but they have downplayed her beauty substantially. And I think that they're trying to make us feel and recognize that..

"Yet she claims to ensure bear is kind of both romantic Anna, classical composer, but she rejects any kind of romanticism in favor of what she later calls her intelligence, which will overcome any emotions she may have. So I found that quite interesting one. It's like she talks the talk about the passion and the artistry and all of these things, but she doesn't want it. You know, like she lives in this world of art the for lack of a better term to me. Classical music is one of the high arts and she lives in this world, but she's so far removed from it at like she can. She's that person who can hit all those notes, but she doesn't seem to have that passionate least in her regular day today because there's so much. Times where you're looking at her and you're like, what is she thinking? What's going on? And she doesn't express it, and that's those those moments where she does express yourself. They take you by surprise when she attacks her mother, it's just like, oh my God, what's going on because she goes from zero to sixty just immediately and lashes out. And other times he's just so withdrawn withheld and just in control of herself or being controlled by your mom, that those she is just the cold. I guess she's the wintrust of of Schumann are sorry up Shubert she's like just very, very icy though. I don't want to say that she's frigid even though we're in Vienna with this thing. I don't wanna venture into Dr Freud's office by any means and start talking about for jibbidy. We'll talk about fallacies and stuff later on. So the all the Freudians in the audience will be very happy about that. But at this point, let's not say that she's a frigid woman. The moment that took me by surprise. The very first time that I saw this in the moment that I think about when I come back to this film or I don't think about that stuff that we talked about earlier in that will talk about again, I thought about that scene when she goes to the peepshow because that was such a surprise for me because she does seem so in control. And so tightly wound that it almost feels like she shouldn't be sexual if that makes any sense. But there she is wearing and I was going to talk about the outfit. She's wearing this like trenchcoat. So she looks like she's basically a not a people flasher. The. Larry's I didn't think about that. Tell just now in going in all the men that are there, and I didn't notice the first time that I watch us that the peop- show is part of a mall. It was such a strange thing to see Vienna, man, Europe in general, Mike, don't you understand us Americans very sexually descend sized were supposed to be well, I guess not Europeans who sexually to sensitize where not. Yeah, we're the uptight ones what been to the red light district in several cities, but I didn't remember going into the mall and like, oh yeah, in, here's the peop- show. So I was I was taken by surprise. I was also a little surprised at, you know that they didn't clean up the booths as often as maybe they should have, but I think that's to erica's benefit and to our detriment yet, no, that's the kind of the point in the movie early on where you realize where this movie is going and kind of what this movie is going to be focusing on is when she starts smelling these seamen coated tissues. She starts huffing huffing the come rag. She's not helping the comebacks. So I've showed this movie to a friend in one of the times I saw it and it was the point where they were like, oh, okay, that this is the kind of movie were watching cool. You know, I, it's, it's just definitely lets you know that some there's some shit going on. This is actually the point where so that a Schubert piece plays that if you guys are fans of berry Lyndon, like I am, I can't think can't hear this Di, Di, Di, Di, Di, without thinking Barry Lyndon. But this is one of the few times where we're seeing her do a practice with a with a piano trio, and then the music continues until she gets into the porno. And then when she chooses which porno she wants to watch the music stops and then she, you know, is enjoying it for a little bit..

"What is she thinking what's going on in her head? And she's the kind of actor or actress where you can look at them just being still and consensus. There's a lot of stuff going on behind there is my favorite part is the jump cuts when Walters playing. I don't wanna get ahead, but I think that that's a good example of how. Her relatively blink face can express so much. We need to talk about the relationship with her mother. Now this immediately, but my wife on edge to see Erica and I like that her mother doesn't even have a name in the credits is just the mother. The mothers played by any Jurado. I believe her name and she is just amazing. She so harsh in she is she's everything that Joan Crawford wishes she could have been. She is just the harshest mom and so controlling of everything. And I love that one of the first scenes we get with them is this whole thing where Erica has come home a little bit late and her mother is all over and her mom discovers that there's while she takes erica's bag and rifles through it and inside there's a dress that Erika bought with the money that basically goes to the house and. It is our first. It's our introduction to this whole idea of the mother, even controlling the close at Erica wears. And there's this whole big thing about her clothes and clues going missing from her closet and her mom cutting up her clothes and all these things. She is very, very controlling of everything that erica's doing and especially the dress, especially that shell that Eric, it's wrapped in. So every time we see Erica on screen, we really have to be very cognizant of what her mother has allowed her to wear or what she has chosen for her to wear outside of the house. And there's some great outfits of talk about. But yeah, this whole fight and then it escalates very quickly. But we know that this kind of thing has been happening for years just by watching their interactions and to see Erica attack her mom as one of the most unsettling things, even though I really liked that she's attacking your mom, but I know I should like that. Yeah, it's amazing that they star. The movie with kind of almost like the straw that broke the camel's back or a breaking point, which I think is a really efficient. But also you know, it's interesting the way that the mother does. She's she leaps a lot of shame onto Erica, and that's kind of her like it. It's it's pure humiliation. That is is the main tool that she uses to kind of exert this to tell -tarian control over her life. You can tell by watching this the way that her mother than after this attack is just kind of waiting and waiting for Erica to apologize. And then after that happens, you get the feeling. This probably happens more often than it doesn't happen, and it just makes you realize how sick this cycle of violence in control is in the house and that we know the mother knows that erica's going to apologize and just kind of get right back under moms. Thumb. Again, mom doesn't really even have to say anything or do anything to get airi'q back in line. As just it's pretty amazing. And when we quickly find out that they don't just sleep in the same room that they sleep in the same bed, then that throws a whole other level of what the fuck is going on in this relationship on top of that, it's definitely not traditional. Well, it's like a whole edible edible thing, right. I mean, that's the whole issue with her mother in this film is that it's like a weird play on Oedipus, especially towards the end of the film where it really just kind of goes off the rails in regards to their relationship, but it's like kind of sylling those roots in those seeds of this weird and pull relationship between the two of them that it seems only one of them is really in on if that makes sense. Another way that you can read it is that you know not so much that there's ever been like a sexual actor like active sexual congress that's gone on. Between them, at least until the end of the movie, but that she has inhibited her notions of desire so much that you know the idea of sharing a bed with somebody isn't something that ever even has a sexual context..

"I'm not lately. It's one of those things where a director himself. They fall into this class of director that sometimes they get a little too heavy for their own good, and they kind of reached this kind of point in their career where someone should probably tell them you need to back it off just a little bit. Maybe don't do this as far as you wanna take it. And I think aaronow ski has either reached that point or has gone past that point. So especially with mother, which I'm with you, although I think the black swan was like his last accessible film. Yeah. I mean, yes, I would agree with that one hundred percent not talking about black swan, but talking about the piano teacher, the mother daughter relationship is so. Crucial to this film, and that is really where we start off with a lot of this, though. I will say that the opening credits of this film are fascinating unto themselves. This whole idea of we are in a movie that is about music kind of or music is a player in this film and the way that we are getting the music controlled when we hear it and when we don't hear it and we are introduced almost immediately to these overhead shots of hands on keyboards, hands on the keys of the piano and limiting our view to just this little slice of the world. And then also when the title cards are coming up, when the actor credits are coming up and these things we are without music altogether, we're just going right to the card and then back to the music and the visuals, and then back to the card and Hanoch is removing the music from these parts which is also kind of. Going to the very, very end of the film in a movie called the piano teacher. There's no music over the end credits, which is an interesting choice as well is very, very controlling of when we hear the music and when we don't. And that's introduced right in these opening credits. I really liked the opening credits though because it's so disjointed and really not what you're expecting. I mean it there are very few films that I can think of off the top of my head that do the credits like this and the way that Hanneke does the credits were cuts back and forth between silence and the piano and silence in the piano, it's really disjointed, kind of like this movie's tone overall, it's kinda disjointed, and I mean, it's it's kind of setting you up for this is where the movies going. You're kind of being conditioned unconsciously to that, but this is where the movie is going. It's very disjointed in back and forth. It puts you on edge right off the bat and really draws your attention to the move or the music being played digest, which it does for most to the movie. But it does break that rule. I think once maybe twice and we're breaks it as fascinating. There's definitely one point that will be talking probably quite a bit about. So yeah, we're pretty quickly introduced to our main character. Erica played by Isabel Huber, who I, I love is bell. Patchy is amazing. Oh, she is so great. One of my favorite actresses not to sideline the conversation. She's absolutely gorgeous, but in this movie, she is so underplayed just like the splashy nece that they do on her skin and everything she just did, and the way that her hair is kind of unkempt a lot of times or like she'll just kind of throw it back into a little pony or whatever. It's just like she is playing this kind. Of doubt, ear person, so well, that everything about her about her appearance and especially about our outfit, and we'll definitely be talking about or clothes through this just really play into that character. She does it so well, what was that? What was that movie that came out two years ago that was similarly with her and some pretty harrowing scenes l. she was great not to, and I really liked that movie as she was just in one called it was MRs hide or Madame hide that I have yet to watch, but I'm really curious to see it. Yeah, she's amazing. And apparently Hannah Kay said that he would make this movie unless she was the main character in this movie. This is one of these times where this went through that a ton of hands..

"Winner con film festival, best actor Ben wall measure, man. The piano teacher a film by Michael Hannukah. Welcome to the projection booth. I'm your host Mike white. Joining me once again is Mr Chris statue? Yep. This is a movie that you asked me to watch. Also joining us this week as Mr. Jerod Bauer. Hey, guys, things are having me this week. We are looking at the two thousand one fell from director, Michael Hanoch the piano teacher based on the nineteen Eighty-three book by Alfred a gel Lennick. I'm going to butcher a lot of names in this episode. I'm sure this film stars, Isabelle, Huber as our tischler pedagogue. She's a woman trapped in a harrowing relationship with their mother. She is abused belittled at home only to turn around and do the same thing to her students. Things change. However, when she meets Walter clever played by Ben wa Megamall Benoy Megamall again, forgive me. Walter is a bit obsessed with his prickly piano teacher leading to a mutually dissatisfying relationship between the pair as always will beginning into. Spoiler territory for this film, so be warrant. Now, Chris, I imagine this is the first time watch for you. Is that correct? Yeah, you'd be right? Yeah, this is pretty much what I was expecting from a Hanneke film. This is the only other Hanneke foam I've seen other than the remake of funny games that he did the remake that he directed of his own film. This movie is, yeah. I don't think I'm watching this again. It's it's rough. It is very rough. Watch in his a film that will turn off most people within the first hour. And if you can make it to the hour forty Mark, most people turn it off at the hour forty Mark because it becomes insanely uncomfortable in a way that very few films are anymore kudos to Hanneke for doing that. I mean, he's, I think I read somewhere that he's the Austrian man of misery or something to that effect. And this film pretty much keeps. In line with everything that I've read end scene of his film. So Jared, did I hear right? You took your mom to see the some other stays that correct? No, not quite. But gosh, I, I am feeling a little bit like a sicko because I just watched it before this podcast, and I believe it was either the third or fourth time I've seen it. And what did you think? So I'm a big sucker for any move, any movies that explore the world of classical music. I mean, some of my favorite elements of Kubrick films are the fact that he has displays classical music with such reverence. I like the world of kind of upper class elite, classical music competitiveness. So I liked this movie a lot as far as what Chris saying about the hour. Forty Mark, I think I agree and I actually think although that's kinda weird the most shocking things happened in the things that people remember this film. The most tour. I don't really like it like kind of kills the movie for me, but not because I'm disgusted, not because I'm kinda sensitized to be honest. But I just, I don't know. I don't know what to think of it. I'm starting to think that, you know, I'm trying to prepare to sound smart on this podcast, but I've kind of come to the conclusion that I should treat this movie like David Lynch movie and that if I try and look too deeply, it's probably I'm gonna miss the point. I feel the same way that you do Jared about the desensitization. My my reasoning for that, our forty markets is similar to what you said at that point. I just the movie just kind of goes completely off the rails and stops even being. I mean, even worth watching this I'm extent that scene at the hour forty Mark is so unbearable to watch that. I don't even understand why it's there. Yeah, and it just you don't get it. One of the reasons I watched this movie for the third time I watched her. The second time I watched it was because I just come back from black swan, and I was like, okay, it's basically the same movie as the piano teacher. But I guess it'd been awhile since I've seen it because and up to the point where the movie is relatively fanatically peril. L. to black swan. It's good. But then once it goes off the rails, I just don't know what to think anymore..
