Could Mike Pompeo, Robert O'Brien, Make a Run for POTUS?
"Yeah, David drucker, I am going to moderate a debate of would be senators in ohioans on a night, the 6 Republicans who are running three nights at Senate to replace rob Portman, and I'm reading in Trump shattered or prepare for that debate. They might want to get a hold of a copy themselves if they want to know what I'm thinking about. I think you're going to sell like hotcakes. I can not wait to read this, but I wanted to ask you, I know that two of the profiles in the book are of Robert O'Brien and Mike Pompeo. I was with both of those men last week. I'm curious what your assessment of both of their intentions and odds are showed president Trump not enter the race. And if he should. Well, it's very interesting. Let me start with Mike Pompeo, the former Secretary of State because I spent so much time researching him and reporting on it. He wants to run for president. And in fact, in a podcast interview a couple of weeks ago and it's a companion to my book, so it's also athlete titled in Trump's shadow. I asked secretary Pompeo, if I said I know you're not going to tell me if you're running or not today, I'm not that I'm not that crazy. But I said, if Trump decides to run a third time, does that automatically mean you will not. And he would not say as some have said that that automatically means he would not. He said, look, if you're going to run for president, you need to believe that you have something unique and critical to offer the country at a time in history. He is planning to run and everything he is doing is about planning to run. Robert O'Brien, who I profile less, but did mention is a very interesting figure because he comes from the traditional wing of the party, but he fit in very well with Trump in The White House and was his most successful national security adviser from the perspective of doing the job and not getting crosswise with the commander in chief. Could be a very interesting dark horse candidate as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. He's a Mormon. He comes from the west. There are pockets of Mormon voters in Arizona and Nevada, Idaho, other states where multi candidate primary, you might be able to do some damage. He's also interested in running. I classify him as less interested in Pompeo.

Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Set for Final Senate Passage
"The Senate is poised to pass the first phase of president Biden's rebuilding agenda a trillion dollar infrastructure package some seventy senators appear ready to approve it in a rare to party partnership with the by the White House for the first time the Senate has come together around such a package in decades democratic leader Chuck Schumer pointing to Republican negotiators like Ohio's rob Portman it will be a lasting bipartisan achievement to help the people we represent but the bipartisan spirit won't last because the Senate will immediately take up the president's next package of three and a half trillion dollar bill focused on family support education and the climate which is a tax and spending extravaganza which Portman says no Republicans will support the debate will last into the fall Sager mag ani Washington
Bitcoin Rallies Defiantly as Senate Infrastructure Battle Hits a Snag
"What's going on guys. It is monday. August ninth and today. We're talking about bitcoins. Defiant rally as the senate battle hits something of a snag so let's get caught up on everything that happened this weekend at this point. I'm going to assume you know the setup at least somewhat last minute provision in the infrastructure bill looked to get around twenty eight billion dollars of the bills cost to be covered by new tax. Reporting rules around crypto. The problem well there are a lot of problems for one. The joint committee on taxation. That came up with this number. Hasn't had to show its work anywhere and there's fairly good reason to be skeptical that there's nearly thirty billion dollars and under reported crypto taxes but alas that wasn't the issue we had to focus on instead the issue at hand was that the new reporting requirements swept everyone in crypto networks including non-custodial actors like miners validation software developers into the definition of a broker by their very nature. These actors don't have access to the info that would be obligated to report anyway fast forward over the course of the last week. Washington was assailed with what they found to be a shocking amount of lobbying from the crypto community shocking to them perhaps much less shocking to those of us who actually know about the fervor in. This space a bipartisan group of senators including republicans. Pat toomey and cynthia lumps and democrat. Ron wyden put forth an amendment that made clear exemptions people like miners. This seemed like it should have been all that controversial republican rob portman who wrote the provisions in the first place had said numerous times that the intent was not to include those people however the treasury department who he was consulting closely with wanted. Maximum flexibility to write the implementation however they chose
"portman" Discussed on POLITICO Playbook Audio Briefing
"The bipartisan infrastructure. Deal could pass the senate today technically. It's called the infrastructure investment and jobs act now. But that just doesn't feel the same to me. The bill experienced to delay that inconvenienced the weekend. Plans of senators. Because senator bill hagerty it. Trump loyalist from tennessee refused to agree to speed up the process if the delay tactics continue today the vote won't happen until about three. A m tuesday. The hegarty wasn't exception. That proves the rule donald trump. Who just this weekend. The head of the artsy said still leads. The party had little influence over the process. So what else did we learn during the long and winding road to seemingly imminent passage. Playbook pink assembled the people at the center of the deal in the senate and the white house for their thoughts. Here are some of the key takeaways when it comes to trump. It's probably too much to say that the infrastructure bill was a rejection of the former president. But it might be seen. That's kind of senatorial sub tweet at him five. Republicans who negotiated it are the five most anti-trump gop senators senators rob portman mitt. Romney lisa murkowski. Susan collins built acidy. Alba portman voted to convict trump at his second senate impeachment trial earlier this year. These are the gop senators who have been the most vocal about trump's accents running democratic norms. The bill isn't about trump but it was hard not to notice that those gop senators most concerned about him with the ones who worked the hardest to show that a bipartisan democratic process. With still possible. Hold up mitch. Mcconnell most observers predicted the minority leader would play the familiar role of chief obstructionist but bentley did mcconnell support. The bipartisan talks behind the scenes. He voted to advance the bill. Mcconnell has sided with the political argument that portman and other republicans made on the senate floor on sunday. The legislation is good on the merits. It could benefit the party to be seen as productive rather than purely obstructionist and they worst version of the bill from the gop perspective anyway would have passed under reconciliation. Anyway the bipartisan deal may also hurt a top democratic priority or at least mcconnell and his colleagues hope. It will a senior senate. Gop aide told us. This obviously severely undercuts the narrative that the senate is broken and that the filibuster should be eliminated cure cinema. Gop praised for the democratic senator from arizona remains off the charts when gop eight closely involved in the talks noted that cinemas insistence on a bipartisan. Bill against the wishes of most our democratic colleagues helped convince them. A deal was possible and this person noted allowed republicans dow former influence in the process that they had any right to expect. Did we mention. They really like cinema. Okay but what did we learn about. Chuck schumer early in the process. The majority leader at least publicly seemed unenthusiastic about the deal. Schumer as is common during the fifth year of senate terms is hugging the left lane these days and the left hated the bif processed. It was the cinema- biden mind. Meld that forced to happen in the senate and schumer eventually shepherded the bill through using a field. Cloture vote to push things along when talks dragged and opening the pipeline of amendments just enough to neuter gop criticism but. The process was unfair. But still we don't see the process as likely to be a model for other significant legislation. This congress democrats noted that while the most gop friendly portions of the binding agenda are all in the infrastructure bill. They still bristled over delay tactics this weekend. Despite the supermajority in favor of the bill one republican told us. The staff is burned out and the committee chairs which lost control of the policy-making to the soccer but senators all want to quote kill deportment and cinema led group the senior. Gop aide added getting this done and the current political climate has been extraordinarily difficult. It took four months to get to this point. This deal nearly died a hundred times along the way and partisan forces sought to undermine it now. How about the white house to westerns view. Is that it was a victory for biden style discipline so the white house official. We set a strategy to bills in april and stuck with it. We ignored the noise and the doubts and stuck with our plan added another top biden adviser. People continue to underestimate the president and his ability to get things done. This is the most popular initiative. Congress can move on even according to the d triple c holy. It's worth noting that on the other hand. The bill still has a long road through the house to get to biden's deaths and finally about the press. One of the most important lessons for the press in covering such a long and complicated negotiations is to refrain from viewing daily comments from the key players. As determinative of the outcome. Most public statements are negotiating. Ploys meant to influence the final outcome rather than torpedoes designed to destroy the deal at least the ones from good actors who want to pass something. This is a good reminder as we move onto covering much more sweeping and more complicated reconciliation builds the major players are all already using their considerable leverage to stick out what might look like irreconcilable differences. Don't confuse attempts to shape legislation which the white house and democratic leaders will have to resolve for a bill's demise especially when the president and his party's future depend on it passing. We seen several members floating around this month from political operatives analyzing the prospects for democrats to keep control the house after the twenty twenty two midterms top aggressive strategists circulated in analysis last night that caught our attention state by state. Study of word. Things will stand after redistricting which overall will benefit republicans laid out the met for democrats by highlighting a peace symbol numbers. One hundred ninety five. That's too projected floor for house democrats after the midterms to thirty two. That's projected ceiling for house. Democrats in twenty twenty to thirty seven. The number of swing seats in twenty. Twenty two and two thirds. That's the percentage of those swing seats. That democrats will need to win in order to retain their house majority. Here's another step that tells you just how difficult this will be for. The democrats democrats who won fifty one percent of the adjusted to party voted. Twenty twenty will likely have to win between one or two points more than twenty twenty two to retain control. That's why some democrats are obsessing about this. Historically the number of seats lost by presidents party in his first midterm election is closely correlated with the president's job approval for months. biden's approval has been extraordinarily steady. But if you pollsters have detected a recent dip that is making some democrats nervous even such a small change and this one seems tied to the reemergence of the krona virus could have big consequences in twenty twenty two given the tight margin than congress. Let's schedule ahead for the white house. President joe biden will remain in wilmington delaware today at ten. Am you'll receive the president's daily brief the houses out today.

What's Really Behind SEC Chairman Gary Gensler's Crypto Speech
"What's going on guys. It is wednesday august fourth and today we are picking up where we left off yesterday and asking. What's really behind. sec. Chair gary crypto speech. So on yesterday's show. I gave the full debrief about the state of the infrastructure. Bill for those playing. Catch up the eleventh hour last week. A provision was put into the five hundred fifty billion dollar infrastructure bill that would change tax reporting requirements around crypto the authors claim that it would generate twenty eight billion dollars in unpaid crypto taxes and the mechanism for that was changing the definition of broker to include effectively. Anyone involved in facilitating crypto transactions. The problem is that while custodial facilitation is what actual brokers do and traditional financial systems in blockchain systems many actors including minors validates etc could be considered facilitators. Especially when you remove as this definition did the custodial requirement and that's the problem these actors are non-custodial and don't even have access to the information. This new definition of broker would require them to collect and share with the irs meaning if this new broker definition were applied ipso facto most actors in crypto ecosystems would be operating illegally so the crypto industry went to work on this yesterday show was largely about how seemingly effective the nascent crypto lobby has been and how we're seeing allies on both sides of the aisle lineup to change the language in this bill. We made a little progress in the bills. Specific language over the weekend but are now trying to get the rest of the way there via amendment as this happens the designer of the provisions. Ohio's rob portman keep saying that it's totally not about minors. Invalid eaters wallet developers and that we should all effectively chill out because of course it's not for them opponents of the provisions. Keep saying cool than just say that. In the bill not just in tweets and speeches in fact he again defended in tweets yesterday calling it a common sense provisions and not really addressing this specific criticism at all.

Portman, Romney rounds Tell us Is that the heart of the Republican Party? Ladies and gentlemen, is that the heart of the base of the conservative movement? I don't think so. These are all the outliers pretty much Senator Johnson told Breitbart in an exclusive interview that Senate Republicans that cooperated with Democrats on infrastructure would only be complicit in enabling the Democrats Leftist agenda. Tim Scott said he had to vote known events in the bill because lawmakers had yet to have a draft of the legislation. More than about for you Watch it. You watch this Cornyn and others.

Sen. Portman Slams Pelosi's Threat to Delay Infrastructure Vote
"Senator portman thanks for joining us this. Let's start out with that infrastructure deal. You just heard speaker. Pelosi say she's not going to have a vote until reconciliation has also passed by the senate. I off do you expect to reach a deal this week with george. Let me say that. What she has said is entirely counter to what president biden has committed to and what the senate is doing which is a two track process. The infrastructure bill has nothing to do with the reckless tax and spend extravaganza that she's talking about in terms of what reconciliation as she called it so so no. I'm not happy with what she said. Because it's been inconsistent with the agreement that we have on a bipartisan basis. Does that mean we'll end up with nothing on their own. I'm gonna well if she has her way we could. I'm not sure what the future is of reconciliation. I know that the bipartisan infrastructure package is very popular among the american people and in the united states congress because it makes sense. We need it badly. You know forty. Three percent of our roads are in bad or mediocre condition. According to the engineers forty-six thousand bridges or structurally deficient We have ships lining up at portsmouth. Reports aren't efficient enough. Eighty seven percent of the american people. Nick we do it. Bipartisan infrastructure package. It's the right thing to do. Every president in modern times has talked about it. President trump's proposal was for one point five trillion dollars in infrastructure or is about five hundred seventy nine billion over five years so this is the right thing to do. It's been totally bipartisan. From the start. It's the way we ought to be doing things here in washington to get stuff done and i can't believe the speaker of the house would be blocking it. Do you have a deal. We're about ninety percent of the way there. I'm here this weekend working on legislative language with colleagues and with staff. And and i. I feel good about getting done this week. We have one issue outstanding and We're not getting much Response from the democrats on it. It's about mass transit. Our transit numbers very generous. We increased transit in this proposal. We also increased the formula going forward That's that's the one issue outstanding. Frankly at this point my hope is that we'll see progress on that yet. Today

'We Have a Deal': Biden Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Agreement
"Biden's proposal on infrastructure correspondent Clayton Neville tells us the president is applauding the bipartisan effort to strike a deal. After months of negotiations, President Biden with a bipartisan group of lawmakers behind him, had an announcement. We have a deal, Republican Senator Susan Collins applauded her colleagues on both sides of the aisle. We've agreed on the price tag the skull And how to pay for it. It was not easy to get agreement on all three, but it was so essential the Bills price tag $973 billion over five years or 1.2 trillion over eight years. President Biden admitted it wasn't the deal he wanted. None of us got what we all whether we want it. They gave more than I think. Maybe there were inclined to give in the first place, but this reminds me of the days we used to get awful lot done up in the United States. Congress, Democratic Senator Kirsten Cinema called the agreement a historic investment in infrastructure. We all Gave some to get some because what we did was put first the needs of our country. Republican Senator Rob Portman said. The investment covers more than roads and bridges, lots of other kinds of infrastructure, including broadband, including our water system and a rail system, all of which is good for the economy. This will lead to more efficiency in our economy, Higher productivity, more economic growth. This is about the long term. Specifically, the agreement includes $109 billion on roads and highways. 15 billion on electric vehicles in transit in $65 billion toward broadband. Other investments to on airports, drinking water and climate change. President Biden insisted the proposal will create jobs.

NYT Reporter Kyle Buchanan Discusses the Lack of Diversity in the Golden Globes
"About the Golden Globe Awards. So, he said, it's just 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. Paris Press, not a single black member. When you look at the nominees, it's Golden Globes so white It's 2021. Why Is this persisting within the Hollywood foreign press? You know? Well, the Hollywood Foreign press is an extremely insular bunch. You know, the reporting in the L A Times and in the New York Times this past week has a zoo revealed that several foreign journalists you know, over the years have tried to enter this group. And have been pushed out. In fact, it almost seems like the more legitimate the journalists. The worst. Your chances are of getting to this organization, perhaps because they were You know, worried about this kind of expo? Say, um wide. Are they still making while choices Because they are a wild bunch. You know, I've met Nick Those voters. They're eccentric to put it mildly, and they really thrive. On this kind of, you know, glamour and this this feeling that they are a pivotal step on the way to Oscar and they're not willing to give up any of that influence. In fact, they try toe. You know, only expanded, but they do so in such a weird way because they are secretive. In a way, you know, there's there's not They're not. They're not out there while they are out there, you know, rubbing shoulders shaking hands took himself fees. Um, if you want to define the list of their membership, that's when the H F P A really starts to clam up because they're not representing the best and brightest of global entertainment journalism far from it there, representing Maybe the savviest and canniest people in awards season that's more their speed than been trying Tost ablest any sort of legitimate credentials. The people who make up that group. So in terms of them being homogeneous, it sounds like they don't really might not particularly care. Well, yeah, I mean, they are homogeneous in the sense that there are no black voters, which is a kind of insane thing in the year. 2021. Obviously we know that Academy, which votes on the Oscars, has been taking sweeping steps over the last few years diversify its membership, which was primarily older, white and male. Gloves have not taken any such steps. And while they are somewhat divers to be Primarily rewarding American movies. To the extent that even a film like denarii, which is American, is shunted off to the foreign film category simply because it's characters often speak Korean That is indicating that ah, wide gulf between what you're covering and what you are what you look like what you're made of who makes up this group. And I think you know if they're going to purport to speak about this industry and who deserves reward with any sort of authority, and you know it's questionable sometimes whether they do or don't have it. And they have to absolutely take a look at themselves. I guess it kind of Buchanan. We're talking to him. He's the award season columnist for The New York Times. The Golden Globes are this Sunday. So here's a bright spot. Best director for motion picture category. There are more women than men nominated several fennel for promising young woman, Regina King for one night in Miami and Chloe Jiao for Nomad Land. Do you think this is the year we could see a best director Everett at the Globes of the Oscars. I do think so. You know, I'm sure the eight FDA would much rather we focus on that category than any other And certainly, you know, I mean, such as the story of award shows and often is the story of, you know, America generally that you have progress in one respect and then two steps backward somewhere else. But, yes, it was only a couple years ago that Natalie Portman was introducing the best director category is the Golden Globes. And very pointedly said Here are the five all male nominees this year that can't be said. In fact, there's a majority of women and I do expect that Chloe job for Nomad Land will prevail even if no man land doesn't take best drama, although it has a very good shot at that. Globes and not going to miss their opportunity to reward a woman. A person of color. She will be the first woman to win the best director trophy from them since Barbara Streisand for gentle Wow.

inside of the Cape were written all of the names of female directors who were not nominated for Academy Awards this year like you gold trad curse of it was lovely it was very subtle yes a very subtle statement to the academy and to the way that female directors are treated in Hollywood rose McGowan decided to criticize Natalie Portman's outfit calling Natalie Portman a quote fried and she said that wearing the cloak wasn't an act of bravery she said it was quote more like an actress acting the part of someone who cares she's a there's something wrong with her yeah well Natalie Portman responded to what worries me down had to say about Ross was deeply offensive what she did yes wearing that keep hallways that offensive and other people Prester wasn't Natalie prisoners was McGowan here's what she said road when a gallon that Natalie Portman's outfit was offensive so here's the quote from rose McGowan I find Portman's type of activism deeply offensive to those of us who actually do the work she said I'm right it not writing out of bitterness I'm writing out of discussed I I just I'm disgusted right it doesn't really translate well on social media rose McGowan wrote on Facebook I just want her in other actresses to walk the walk she went on to say Natalie you've worked with two female directors in your very long career one of them was you you have a production company that is hired exactly one female director you are and none of that is true Natalie's worked with three big feet email directors Sofia Coppola directs her do your commercial she's worked with two female what what okay tells what Natalie okay Natalie Portman said Natalie had to say the following about rose McGowan statement she said quote brief is a term I more strongly associate with actions like those of the women who have been testifying against Harvey Weinstein the last few weeks under incredible pressure because he said I agree with rose McGowan that it is an accurate to call me briefer wearing a garment with women's names on it this is like yeah and she agrees with rose McGowan but she's also saying look Hollywood is not hiring women directors to make movies she said that it's hard for female filmmakers to get financing to have their projects be grin green lit so it's not necessarily that the problem is is that I haven't worked with female directors in my career she said the problem is I have had the experience a few times of helping get female directors hired on projects he said they were then forced out because of the conditions they face at work so she saying it's the whole ecosystem of Hollywood Natalie Portman is like yeah the reason I haven't worked with female directors is because they can get money we ani they won't get hired and if they are hired the often get pushed out of projects that's a very classy response from Natalie Portman very she said Natalie Portman went on to say she said I have tried I will keep trying to get female directors hired she said well I have not yet been successful I'm hoping that we are stepping into a new today well that was a very class response because rose McGowan put this statement on Facebook yelp and we end Natalie Portman didn't call herself brave no that was would like people magazine where reporters were saying and I should be were like always some people's considers brave other people decide it was cool I mean rude Natalie Portman age two years ago the gloves that I'd like to introduce of male director nominees there right she's made her little I mean why are you going after somebody who's on your side of things I dont everyone can be an activist in the street on the front line you know what I mean I don't I I did that makes me really be not happy about rose McGowan do you guys feel the same way I I have felt that way for awhile about her yeah I don't know why she picks fights with everybody I don't know why should pick up the phone and called Hadley like how can we work together yeah or something she's just on why does she have to get involved in now right exactly and that's the issue that this is a big systemic problem and you're right that rose McGowan is taking editorialize commentary on Natalie Portman's Oscar out yeah will it be above it or being maybe like to your point Julie a behind the scenes all you know what Natalie I saw what you did thank you very much like how can we work together but I have a feeling that not many people want to work with rose McGowan you yeah she's to I couldn't even watch her documentary on mine and we tried on easy and we wanted to support her and I gave I do feel supporter but I did not I port of of her naked lean after people like this and we're calling it deeply offensive and calling her out well and it's one of those things where it's like yeah I am making a statement about the nature of Hollywood using my fashion and if it starts the conversation that is one form of there are not mutually exclusive forms of activism Dion for station is big it's multifaceted right there's a lot going on in to say that it's you know like shallow and not worthy they're the woman who directed the fare well when she when the spirit award is it Lou Lou weighing yeah she just said at the end of her speech she said was the box that's well said Holly as I run it was really you know it's like you're one and done and think about how many times male directors are given a chance time and time again and to prove themselves in the Hollywood so not only are women not given the chance is that the expectation is twice as high does that sound familiar life in life your life I mean to give you Tom Hooper with cats disaster doctor Doolittle disaster both of them directed by long time those men will get jobs again even though those movies are losing their the studios to order fifty million yeah they could make twenty farewells yes they could make twenty fare well so we have to get behind him well the site you know either little women little women yeah because that's you know thinking about this before the story there's a new adaptation of Emma that's coming out yeah yes it's directed by a woman and when you watch the

"But it's like what I don't understand what's happening here. Right. There's the one with. Kristen Stewart where she's like, you know, like going through these like a strips of strips of fabric that are wrapping around her body, and it's like slow motion running around the Natalie Portman one. What would you do for love? Yeah. She's data Cupo those and Keira Knightley did a few of those with it just to make no, Johnny Depp. Where he's like burying something in the middle of the desert, and there's like a buffalo. I get it. Right. And he's all dressed up in Johnny Depp, scarves, and stuff on his head and glasses. You know, look with a vast looking like, Johnny Depp, burying something in the Julia Roberts abilities, the breakthrough walls. Those are controversial those are just dumb. But for some reason, I I like those ridiculous. I really like those ridiculous Cologne and perfume commercials that make no sense the Natalie Portman one kind of drives me what's the song that they use in that one. It's actually a pretty popular song that they use net commercial. Yeah. I don't know what it is. But it's like, it's a it's a song that I think was was a big hit a female artists. Saying it they use that in in the video. And then he asked the CSI, right? Yeah. So the. It chandelier. Right. Okay. Yeah. Chandelier by SIA, which is which is interesting because in. Vox lox. Natalie. Portman sing SIA songs in it. So they're like a connection between the two of them. Now. Wow. All right. Let's take a break. We got more controversial commercials to talk about here.

"I was I could compare it to would be like something like suspicious or something where it's like not that the movies are similar, but just in terms of like on on paper. It sounds like something that Peter might be interested in but in the execution it it probably won't be. But I don't know. I think the thing was I loved I loved it follows the so much. So I I don't know. Maybe I I haven't seen the trailer for this one. So I I like the cinematographer who also did glass, which is one of the only things that was the worst. I was shot. If you guys are saying that it's not good. Or if it's being said, it's not good. Then let's laid a bunch of times and it's played a few festivals. And everything I've read said it is like, it's it's like an interesting mess, but it is a mess. So I don't know. I mean, I still want to see it. But I don't know. Yeah. I mean, we actually have a review of it for from last year from the mini fest where it played to lukewarm reactions in that was like a six ten and it's it's just a fantastic fest. Nobody likes it having like everyone really muse about it at the fest other fest. Nobody liked it. Somehow, I missed all that those those reactions I it's getting fifty four percent on rotten tomatoes. So, you know, I I not that I want to go by tomato meter, but that's enough to make me say like now. Okay. I'm I'm wrong. I haven't done enough research into this one. I I was just looking at the the people involved. Okay. I'm gonna make under a look at look at it. There's some stuff interested in like state looks interesting. I I think the rocket man could be interesting Nightingale new different can't movie. I'm interested. But I think we can go ahead. There's nothing on this bottomless. That makes me scream a must be on top twenty five. Is there anything else for you guys? What about Lucy in the sky? We were all talking about that earlier. And I feel like that's something that we're all intrigued by. Yeah. That title is. What got me is. I I completely forget that that that was pale blue dot. Yeah. I if it was local pale pale blue. I would remember that should be in our list. At least this is big head and pull up. I think it's no Holly direct Oriel debut. Yes. No, Holly Viana the greater of legion. FX is Fargo a really late talented television, producer and writer. Let's see I'm trying to pull up to be paid for this movie. I know Natalie Portman and John hammer in it, Jon Hamm is daisy Pete's stand Stevens Ellen Burstyn on the re the national returns earth after lengthy mission because an affair with astronaut. She hasn't she heads into a downward spiral loses a connection to her family condition negative flicked, those who spend a long time and space, and we're left. It begins. Another affair with national trainee the bottom drops out. So it's sort of a drama set in the world of NASA, astronauts, and I think Holly is great. I guess a one markets movie is Mark we've had against other movies. So far has been we haven't have a trailer. We've seen like it's still value Portman in the movie, but that's about it. But based on on Holly alone. I'm cool. Bumping it up. I still think somebody top twenty five when we actually really get down to. It. I also want to say that. It's I think it's loosely inspired by that astronaut who made headlines and sort of tabloid headlines for driving across the country in a diaper pretty yet based on real. So if that if that makes it any better, sell so-called, pale blue dot ie Lucy. This guy's such a bad title grid, pale blue dot that's stupid as it's dumping to get worked up about. But it's it's about anyway. Okay. I would actually to make a case for rocket, man. Simply because I think that this looks like it does something different with the musical bio-pic because it's described as a a musical fantasy. And I think it's going to do something that I wish something like behemoth rhapsody had done. I think Taryn Edgerton is a phenomenal choice to play Elton John. I think Elton John is such a kooky character in his own, right? That doing a movie that's feels like almost like an across the universe. Approach to his own life and rise to fame..

"I thought I had seen the most definitive scene of Natalie Portman breaking down in addressing room and my life. But I was so wrong. I just wanna I congratulate you on making a movie that. There are a lot of great movies this year. And I feel like we're in a moment when artists such as yourself are taking a mirror back to our society and trying to say something about where we find ourselves at this really weird time that we're in. There have been a lot of great movies. But no other movie this year has left me completely guessing while watching it and having no idea where the director was taking me, but because of the storyline the performances and the strong direct toil choices you made I was ready to just let go and have you take me wherever you took me. And it is so rare that a movie does that. And honestly, that's the best praise that I can give this film. It actually gets even better on a second and third viewing. So. Jonah Miller a bit about Brady. Brady started is creative career as an actor. And I I saw him had film for him on screen and a movie called mysterious skin. I think you're about fifteen nine fourteen house fourteen fan. I it's it's funny. Because this film is playing the film forum.
