"Sorrow is divided of growth and strength It has often occurred to me that many of the people I've known in the healing professions are themselves deeply wounded particularly in the areas that they particularly work And I have always thought that Joe Biden was quite literally the wounded healer Yes I agree with that completely So back to our conversation we were having a moment ago about right wing opposition to education Robert Altman wrote a book called the authoritarians about a decade and a half ago John dean in fact wrote a book called conservatives with our conscience based on all Myers book and then he more recently wrote a book with all my hair about this topic And all Myers proposal or proposition is that about 20% of us in any human population are authoritarian leaning kinds of folks Just do it my way damn it And that those kind of folks and then John dean takes that and says those kind of folks are the ones we show up in the Republican Party generally and only rarely in the Democratic Party Does that tell us if that's true Does that tell us that this education issue we want our kids to grow up to be a nice little robot who respect our values and nobody else's is something that would really resonate well for Republicans but for Democrats would be a relatively meaningless argument Well that's a very it's a.

"And i've never forgotten that speech And then also the scene where the old lady gets kicked out of the choir. We talk a lot lately about ted lasso and one of the things. That's so great about that show. Is this notion that kindness can be dramatic. You know that like we. We've been conditioned to think that drama is about conflict and about like people having fights and lily ponds or whatever. You know that that it's all got to be like insults and and and you know one-upmanship and all this kind of stuff but sometimes doing the right thing and being nice and compassionate somebody else can be good storytelling so the fact that this woman who has been with choir forever and it's just like not able to find a key with the map now. He takes her aside as like. He doesn't want to have to do it but he knows he has to do it. She doesn't want it to happen but she knows it has to happen and she lets them off the hook by being like you know what you need an assistant you. I need to go and make sure that these robes are updated. People don't have their music that at about like she basically like saves him from having to deliver this crushing blow to her by like volunteering to come in. Do something else and still be part of the choir. Have this place to go to and to be around these people. I think it's a lovely scene. And it's beautifully acted ruth nelson great actress. She's in robert altman's a wedding and like a million other things and houseman is such a pro houseman. Goes back to like orson welles and the mercury theatre. Yeah and then in the seventies you know. He wins an oscar. Yeah for the paper chase where he plays like stentorian stern really like you know taskmaster of a law school professor at harvard. And so in this movie you see him also kind of having that taskmaster kind of thing where he's very you know he's tough and he's demanding and he wants soup out of you but he does it in a way where it's like. I want you to give me this and you want to give me this because you giving it to me is going to mean that you are better than you were when you started this process so yeah i think there's a lot of feels here. I got A church music group feels Growing up in the church. The first time i ever Got to play with. Other musicians was at church. When i was first getting started playing guitar like thirteen fourteen and just having the freedom in the space to do that. was great and going from being really bad to being a little bit better than bad and seeing progresses and exciting thing and having that freedom to do that. is great and i really loved his speech early on about how he views music and i thought all of that was really great and so i got i got church. Music feels. Yeah i think that the amateur speech is wonderful. John houseman is great in it. But i love. I'm a sucker for a great sports movie like even a decent sports movie. That's kind of my christmas movie that courtroom dramas like those things like bring it. People automatically dan. I mean you just like mindless action. Movies like courtroom dramas like david dobkin the judge with downey junior robert duvall bring it home bringing it right now. Let's go and so the the thing that happens in these in these sports movies is the coach isn't like by the team and then at some point it flips some sort of gesture or act of some kind like in in..

"Fact george. Lucas used sinon cult members for his first film. Thx eleven thirty eight. Which put him on the map. He hired extras from senate on because they had shaved heads and he needed a large group of people with shaved heads. So senate on a kind of in the background of hollywood if you wanna call it that when when altman suggested hiring members a because it was cost effective because rather than paying people to be background extras at the rates that unions would determine he test his production manager with going down to sit on an offering to make like ten thousand dollar donation in exchange for having x. number of people available on these days to wear their own clothes and to appear in the backgrounds of all the various gambling scenes and it does give those scenes avera vera similitude. That is hard to ignore. Your eye is drawn to these very believable looking characters all of whom of course through being involved in senate on had struggled with addiction of one form or another in their own lives. And the question of whether you can read that on the screen from those extras in a way that you wouldn't from a more traditionally cast hollywood extras very interesting. When you watch the film see what you think. The senate on ethically collapsed when a lawyer began asking uncomfortable questions and to sinon on members placed a d. rattled rattlesnake in his mailbox because he had brought a lawsuit on behalf of people who were being held against their will by the cult. He was bit by the rattlesnake when he opened his mailbox. He spent six days in the hospital. And that allowed police to launch an investigation and the government to launch an investigation into synonym after diederik was arrested in one thousand nine. Seventy eight to other sin. An residents were arrested and pleaded no contest to charges of assault and conspiracy to commit murder and without the leader and with the severely tarnished reputation. The irs moved in. They had a seventeen million dollar back. Tax payment do that bankrupted the organization which then formerly dissolved in one thousand nine hundred ninety one so there. You have robert. Altman's interest in the american underbelly in the american psyche. Also has so many real world stories of endings that mimic. I think so much of what people would have gone. Through coming through the sixties in the seventies so perhaps one person is a dedicated follower of Untraditional non western medicine practices. And perhaps as a result know. Doesn't leave that prolonged. But perhaps unsatisfying or un- unhappy day to day. Life of the chemo. Patient someone's killed the two in a completely random act of violence which remains unsolved to this day someone else unravels much later later on in life when perhaps things hadn't worked out career wise in a career like hollywood. You have this background of self help movements and cults which were so rich and so fertile in los angeles at the time. There's so many great documentaries of the era sinon on is one of them and that's intermingled in to the film. Although at the time that all been was making this. I don't think on had turned the corner into some of the dark corners that it would eventually find itself parked. But that's some of the rabbit hole. That i went down in watching california's but i hope that's not too dark and morbid because the film is not dark and morbid. The film is very funny. It's very provocative. And it's really really a extremely worthwhile altman film to check out if you're in the mood for a classic nineteen seventies film and by the way when i re watched the player just last week. It still holds up very present. It's your pitch. The best political scary political doesn't scare me. Radical political scares me. it's medical political scares lightly political elite radical. But it's funny. It's funny it's funny. Political thing it's a funny thriller thriller and it's all at once. So let's start. Well i want. Bruce willis can talk It's a story about a senator bad guy senator. I he's traveling around the country on the country's dime that's a new guy is sort of a cynical political thriller comedy in the right spot and anyway he has an accident. An accident becomes clairvoyant. Yeah so it's kind of a political thriller comedy with a heart with a heart and unlike ghost meets entering candidate. Go on gone. i'm listening to anyway. He can start to read people's minds and when he gets to the president's mind it's completely blank coming fleetingly black. I'd like your.

"Doc. that's four. that's three when george. She passed away a few weeks ago. It kind of inspired me to go. Check out some of the robert altman films that i hadn't yet seen i've been meaning to see california split for quite some time and numerous people including my friend. Rick brown had mentioned being big fans of california split. And i wanted to finally sit down and watch this movie which i did and wow. It's such an incredibly rich tapestry. Like a lot of films are it's a great period piece of its time and features two great and wildly different lead performances from george segal and elliott gould. So the film. If you haven't seen it is well worth checking out. It's the story of to degenerate gamblers in los angeles and their descent into madness of their gambling addiction. Even though the film is very funny and very lighthearted in many places but it has a very often esque. Dark deep heart. That's seeking to tell us a little bit about the american condition even as it's presenting an odd ball collection of characters bumping into each other and off of each other as they go about their kind of single minded pursuits of the films in the seventies. Have this way now of kind of telling us a little bit about this decade as well the sense that people are kind of lost in their own trips that are trying to figure themselves out are doing the best they can. But are hampered by either a persona or some type of life occurrence that gets between them and the people around them a lot of his films. I think feature characters who are on unsteady uncertain terms with themselves and their environments. And i think we can safely say that america and the world itself was on similar footing in the nineteen seventies. So a lot of films when you watch them today. I think have this period appeal but in addition to that they have a way of mining subtler depths to the things that were going on whatever the setting may be. What do you doing in this hospital now. We are surgeons and we're here to operate we're just waiting for a starting time. Go near patient until colonel. Now says it's okay and he's gone to lunch look mother. I want to go to work. In one hour. We other the pros from dover and we figured it cracked this kid's chest and get out to the golf course before it gets dark so you go find the gas passer and you have been premedicated this patient and bring me the latest pictures on them. The ones we saw must be forty. Eight hours oh by now then call the kitchen and have them russell up some lunch. Zobeir steak with even better and then give me at least one nurse who knows how to work in. Close without getting your tits. In my way do you want to stay cooked so the film opens with this bravura altman said piece set in a poker hall and characters are playing at the same table and all been brilliantly uses a kind of fake poker video voiceover device to impart this very corny advice about how to be a poker have been a diligent and respectful poker partner at the table with images and sounds of the actual players themselves of course being anything but it is simply good judgment to be one at the card table. Show our dates to me all right. You're so pretty everybody out. That's a god damn six and everybody's out depends on good manners the skills of the plate and kind of setting up the characters perfectly here. You know elliott. Gould is doing a lot. He's got a lot of facial things going on. He's got a lot of gesticulations going on. He's got a lot of dialogue. George segal has just cut away to and he seems to just be quietly internally suffering although he also is kind of on elliott gould characters side as we come to see in the dispute over whether a card that he dealt fell to the floor or not thus rendering elliott goals. Hand unplayable sick lady decision to make here let you break me down. break me. Down to cards was Oh my great. Catch a pal caused. What are you talking about the cod one off the table. It's absolutely right. She's my gratitude for your knowledge of the rules except the card never left the said go. Did you see that. God who off the table and in this shot which is incredible in the way the scene is cut. You have all of these fantastic background extras. And they're adding color in life to the scene in a way that only altman extras can. He frequently wouldn't cast actual actors as extras and he had a number of mechanisms by which he would. He would stumble into pools of people that he would use in his films. That's going to be one of the true crime elements that emerges as we continue to talk about robert altman's california split talk about time passed the juicy and somebody out problem is card. Went off the table. Hit the floor and he will give it up. It's nothing to give up the card. Never hit the floor. I caught it before it did. Take it easy. Who else odd man did you see what i see it. I'll let you pod bounce back here you dealt the hand you ought to know what happened. I doubt the second one little hard. Never hit the floor. Not even clubs. I didn't even put loom. The rule is the car doesn't hit. The floored plays continue. Come on now. You may know from listening to the pod. One of my cinematic touchstones is roger. Ebert and not only his seminal. Tv show which was a huge fan of at the time but also his film reviews. His written film reviews at the time he was a big fan of california. Splitting over albert hoffman. I'm gonna read you a couple of things from a review that he wrote of the film. Because i think he gets to the point of it much better than i could quoting here. The movie will be compared with mash. The first big hit by altman. It deserves that comparison because it resembles mash in several big ways. It's funny it's hard boiled. It gives us a bond between two frazzled. Heroes trying to win by the rules in a game with the rules require defeat. But it's a better movie than mash because here altman gets it all together ever since mash. He's been trying to make a kind of movie that would function like a comedy but allow its laughs to dig deeper and deeper into the despair neath so getting to my earlier point. I think that's one of the strengths of the film. The film originated from a screenplay by a former child actor and writer named joseph walsh. Who actually was friends with elliott gould and the characters of bill and charlie played by elliott gould. And george segal based in part on joe walsh and elliott gould's own relationship to each other and with gambling but before we dive into the film itself. Let's just take a quick step back to contemplate some of the fascinating aspects of the career of robert altman so allman as much as any filmmaker of the new hollywood period would become would come to be defined as part of new hollywood and a generation of filmmakers like hal ashby scorsese steven spielberg francis ford coppola on and on people who were making offbeat pictures. That were outside the traditional studio fair. Unlike many of those directors who were in their twenties when they got.

"With that just because some guy worked with Chanel claimed claimed that it was the given up pant and the given up pant. That's also from Seinfeld. I think there was a Seinfeld episode based on sweatpants and the the given up pant. I had no idea. That is awesome. I have to check that out for sure. Yeah, he's talked about giving up. Like if you're wearing sweatpants, then you've you know, you've lost your way you not you're not living your life anymore and just forget it you might as well you've you're doomed and that's Karl Lagerfeld like who I am just was the biggest fan of his forever. Yeah, the designer of Chanel for many many many years and he just passed away last year off. So, you know, I mean, what's what's that mean the designer of Chanel? Isn't that a perfume? Well, yes. Okay. However, it's also a clothing line and its own clothing line since Coco Chanel started it back in like the twenties. I think she started. Oh, so they've done more than do they start out with perfume. You know, that's she had to know number five early early on but I think she started with clothing. Okay? Yeah. I think she was a clothing designer first and she was just like an iconic woman who liked well Sports sport. Okay, so we could get into sports we're too because we I think most people think of sports wear as like a thing that you wear for like just life or sports right? But actually it's a it's a term in fashion. That's really more about casual clothing that you buy off the rack and as opposed to Oat coon dog. I mean, we're really going to okay, please do please do like so here you can't you cannot out minutiae me. First of all, I don't I'm wearing cargo shorts so they were free. So Thursday, I don't know anything about fashion right now and I'm wearing a a free hoodie that was given to me with a fish shaped like a long island. That's out. There you go. Yeah, go to the YouTube. You guys can see my fashion choices. So I have seen them actually and it makes me laugh. I mean, I'm sorry, you know seems fair seems Seems Fair wage. Oh God, that's really I don't know. Don't worry. I have two sides of me. Like I have the fashion side of me that can be really judgmental about clothing because that's what I've been doing. And that's the same time. I really don't give a crap. You know what I mean? Like, I don't feel like it's important or but it's kind of fun right like it's red, right, but it's something you care about so it does make a difference well, See someone doing it poorly or or not doing it at all and you're just like this could happen. Like I think I saw that that that the two movies that were Prada. Yeah with the product Meryl Streep was in what movie? Yeah, and then the Robert Altman movie that won The Devil Wears Prada. Yeah. Yeah, and that movie besides Meryl Streep. Oh it was Anne Hathaway. That's right. So Anne Hathaway and whoever her love interest were they were in one movie and then Meryl Streep was said an entirely different movie pack is every scene with with Meryl Streep. I was like, well, this is a drama about fashion and about her life falling apart. And then we'd go to Anne Hathaway. We're we're in a wacky romantic comedy took somebody's a chef and you know, like what's happening anyway, so weird movie for me, but it was so weird movie. Yeah. So so you for doing fashion and you've cared about fashion, obviously your home. Life and so so so there's bespoke.

"Welcome to kiss myths and Mystery Syam, your host Kit crump today, the Bohemian Grove and a little bit about secret societies. Perhaps, you belong to a club some time in your life maybe the girl Scouts or cub scouts I was a cub scout many clubs have rules and regulations that go no further than the halls were the members gather like the elks however organizations like the PTA Parent Teacher Association can affect schools, school districts therefore students the reach and impact of. These organizations are limited and generally they're intent is not secret records of meetings of the scouts, elks in the PTA and many other clubs are available to the public. But there are many secret societies out there Yale's skull and bones founded in eighteen thirty two and has had both bushes Teddy Roosevelt and his cousin Franklin as members but a complete list of members is difficult to acquire and the intent of the club impossible to know Dan there is the barbarian aluminum. An lighten era secret society founded may first seventeen seventy, six. The BILDERBERG group is so secret that is considered by many to be a shadow world most secret societies, clubs and organizations so far flung with headquarters in different cities around the world. But the Bohemian Grove is located on two thousand, seven hundred privately owned acres located in Monte Rio California and established eighteen seventy two security at the grove is year round ex-military hired to keep out the curious high end equipment including thermal night vision cameras, and motion detectors are used. As. Part of the sophisticated detection and alarm system, they have ceremonies with strange names like the yearly cremation of care ceremony. It was revealed by a California judge during a discrimination suit brought against that grow by the California Department of Fair Employment and housing over the club's refusal to hire women when the judge that issued decision in favor of the club's practice of not hiring women stated the club members urinated in the open and that hiring women would alter the members behavior odd ceremonies and members strange conduct aside members like those. Of Yale are rich and powerful pictures of President Reagan and Nixon indicate they were members. Also, the Grove is particularly famous for a Manhattan Project Planning Meeting this took place there in September of Nineteen, forty two, which subsequently led to the atomic bomb those attending this meeting include Ernest, Lawrence j Robert, Altman Heimer, the s one executive committee heads such as presidents of Harvard Yale and Princeton along with representatives of standard, oil general, electric as well as various military officials. All members at the time oppenheimer was not an s one member. Although Lawrence, an open heimer hosted the meetings grow members take particular pride in this of and often relate the story to new attendees. However, other behavior at this famous campground has led to numerous claims and even some parody in popular culture. One such documented example was former president Richard Nixon's comments on May Thirteenth Nineteen seventy-one recording the Bohemian Grove which I attended from time to time. It is the most Fag God damn thing you could ever imagine now that's a quote from Richard, Nixon was recorded may thirteen nine, hundred, seventy one. Author, Brad Meltzer hosted a program for the history channel. It was called history coded. He hosted a team of three and during one episode sent to to infiltrate the Hebron. Grove. With the disastrous result, they were all arrested.

"Like the previous time keep keeping spoilers to a minimum and only vaguely talk about the plot in storylines. Even if still WANNA, stop listening after this warning, or you already know everything about these movies I. Recommend you wash them anyway. I up. Is Nashville released in Nineteen, seventy five now after years in the making rubber? Twenty. A! Lately. This all started when a discussion about off men in discord served I'm in. Someone was looking for places to watch this and the next movie on this episode, and I helped him out afterwards was at. You might as well watch them myself. Nashville seem the most interesting on the munch because it was about country music and said around the peak of his general popularity. That's what I think. At least most of the country artists that I know are from that era. Our bats people like the Ronstadt. John Denver Dolly Parton Kenny Rogers and Willie Nelson Emma a few of the top of my head. Full the film isn't just fixated on the industry side and use it more as a backdrop for sending more personal dramas. And it also makes us the greatest Robert Altman signature at least on these fema was that I watched the ensemble cast. There isn't one single protagonist. These movies and the counter stories get crisscross in some way or another at various points and all three also have a big damage sequences. We get to know all the characters that will play a part in the movie which saves the fussell heavy. Twitter's them separately over the course of the running time, and is much more efficient because of that. Back to Nashville? The film starts off Hardwood with a parody of those compilation albums that used the Selah TV. Listening on the actors in the film. I'm glad I watched enough oddity archive to catch the reference. There's a presidential race going on in the candidate Hal, Phillip Walker goes to Nashville for a fundraising campaign, and his associates are trying to get country superstar heated Hamilton and country. Darling Barbara Jean to play on stage for them. There's also Opel an Englishwoman recording a documentary about national for the BBC winifred an aspiring country singer who doesn't actually show up that much, but then has a key role at the end of the movie, the folk trio of Tom Bill and Mary and many more that I won't be listening because we'll be here forever. There are many threats to follow in the movie from Romantic troubles. Power struggles aspirations and dreams all coming back together for one unifying event at the end. kind of like a bookmark starting in any of the film with everyone in the same place. On the cars have pretty clear to motivation so as easy to follow. Who's WHO and what they're after once you memorized each one.

It's so for all very competently made production. The music is also great, which should be given a movie about music? Looking back on it. I like it more if they're letting.

It was actually a problem about in California nineteen eighty nine, so if anything, the movie just keeping up with the trends in that time this fact. Anyway the cartridge from many different backgrounds, varying from which yuppies to hide middle class families and a couple living in the trailer park. Like Nashville, the counters all intermingle at some points, and it was fun trying to think in what ways they get together next and being surprised during directions.

"To Blake and movies Vic Vaughn? I was listening to your news report there and I listened to the sports, of course. And I almost forgotten that the St Louis blues were in the Stanley Cup final. My morning is ruined. I'm sorry. And I can't even believe that q I really watched since the Blackhawks kind of out of it. I kind of. I always just usually keep an eye on it to make sure the blues don't make it. And they've got to give them credit. They were in last place on January third or fourth, so, give credit where Credit's due for the blues coming back to make the playoffs in the first place. Get a good seating and do what they've done. Here's the thing about the blue. So they actually have made the Stanley Cup final. They made it the first three years and their existence. When the original six expanded they left all the original six teams in one conference, and they started a brand new conference instead of d you know, breaking them up into different conferences. So the blues were the best of the new teams for the first three years, and they made the Stanley Cup final each of the first three years, but they got swept every single time. So they've never won and their franchise Tristan Stanley Cup final game. They've been in the finals in the first three years of their existence only because of the different parody between the two conferences Soto. I'm sure they'll win at least one. Well, that kind of actually kind of may be. Interested to watch is all that. You know it's, it's, it's me as a jealous hawks fan now but, you know, we've had our fun and we'll be back again next year. The team doing really well, but good luck to Saint Louis blues in the final Blake, I mentioned, it hurts. You to say that, too, especially since you live down by country. It does. Little little adding onto your time line their events for the blues and the Stanley Cup finals, the gold Bobby ORR, flew through the air for won the Stanley Cup on with against the St Louis blues history here. Yeah. That should be a good final. I hope I mean as much as I dislike both teams I I'm not going to be shy about, I'm a Blackhawks. And however, either teams I don't like but I think that they will put on a good series and I will give credit to the blues. They did. They did the grind they made. And you know what the what the both teams I, I love hockey in the end more than agree. I hope it goes seven I you know, I I, I was like I just hope the blues continue their streak of never win in the Stanley Cup final game. But there's nothing better than like a game seven overtime. I mean the hawks have had plenty of those on the losing in on the winning end. And just, you know, I guess, you know, we when you when you go between Saint Louis and in Chicago, and we've gone to so many games down in Saint Louis blues, Blackhawks and also cubs cardinals. You know we'd go to those games and they would always say to us when the Blackhawks would beat the blues, they would say, oh, well, you know, at least we got the cardinal, so I just don't want to become one of those fans here in Chicago. That says, oh well we. Won three Stanley Cups. You guys if they do win this year. Oh, you've only won one pushes congratulate them, and we'll go get them next year. How about that? Yeah. I mean, I will say this, there is no better place to go to a game on the road than if you go chair on the Blackhawks at Scott. But if they lose I if a hot atmosphere, that's fine. Yeah. I, I'm looking forward to what I hope I again. I'm with you go seven because one Cup finals game seven that's amazing. And there's nothing like it. And I hope that, you know, I, I know what I'm going to be watching. Tonight at seven o'clock for my heart for my heart health. I'm glad the Blackhawks never went seven the any of their three a couple wins. Always six. Thank goodness. Obviously, the overtime winner in Philly and game six. Then, of course the winner in Boston game six almost went to overtime and the hawks scored twice in seventeen seconds. And then the home win where you and I were there Blake celebrating the UC hawks versus Tampa Bay. Oh, gosh. I'm getting some good memories. All right. Well, we we're talking about it's Memorial Day, of course, and we're paying homage to olf servicemembers. And of course, those who paid the ultimate sacrifice three onto ninety one seventy two hundred if there's anyone you'd wanna give a I hate to say a shoutout because doesn't put it in context patriot too. I mean that's a better way. To say it. I'll feel free to join the conversation, three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred we're also talking about war movies scenes, documentaries in the context of not just kind of fan blowing over, you know, the gore of war movies, but really, to talk about movies and documentaries or miniseries that put war in context that maybe if, if you didn't serve like myself like Blake made you appreciate what, what, what folks go through when they're overseas, whether it's in the battles, or just the trauma that they have to deal with. So Blake, we've been having a great conversation about documentaries, and the miniseries one. Are you going to take over another one of your your favorite picks? So I definitely want to give a couple of mentions. One is a documentary, and it's called Restrepo which I know had an actually was nominated for an Auster it came out in twenty ten it is a documentary shots. All by soldiers on cameras. They had while they were serving in one year in a deadly part of Afghanistan when they were stationed there. So this is not a Hollywood film. This is a firsthand account edited together. And it it it'll shake you. I think that it because that's part of what we're talking about films. Have the power to open doors to people inside the brains and let them tap in and understand things. And it Restrepo is very high on my list when ever talk about, you know, films that focus on war, or people who are serving because it has its ups that has downs. Sometimes you have to deal with, you know, using humor to to get through the day and stay saying because of, you know, the, the tension the state of pension that people who are serving can live in, and I think Restrepo captures combat it captures life in a combat zone. In a way that not many other documentaries and films have now it has spawned several other films of ill. You know shot by soldiers using their cameras while they were serving receptacle was the first movie, I remember seeing in just I was awestruck. So I definitely wanna make mention of that for documentary Restrepo high on the list before we continue on with the movies and documentaries, seven seven three texted in this is something this is Marco on the southeast side of Chicago wants to honor, his neighbor, Mr Torres who lives on hawks street was a marine and Yvo Jima. He was on a unit of twelve when he came back alone. He was sent with a unit of nine and he came back alone. He didn't win on a unit of seven and was one of only three to return my respect to him, and those who fought for our freedom, so we don't have to spread into. Deutsche boy, those numbers are just kind of give me goosebumps like. Yeah. Especially Jima, which was a brutal fighting in a very big way. So and the marines I as you will mind if he goes through the annals of history, marines are usually the first to arrive the first try I go all the way and then other they're just the tip of the spear so stories from marine if they're willing to tell them or feel that they're important enough to tell. That's their choice are always going to be captivating, easiest way to say, I, I don't know any other way or pick a word, you know, it would be a good one. Yeah. And I think that, you know, speaking of marines if you're looking for a mini series to watch HBO produced a very fine mini series called generation kill which was based on so generation chillingly seven episodes, I think at seven episodes and. It details the exploits of marine force recon in Iraq during Iraqi freedom or the early stages of Iraqi freedom when they took back dad, and everything they were the tip of the spirit, and there was a Rolling Stone journalist embedded in with them, who wrote detailed, everything would generation kill captures brilliantly is day to day. One says like for a soldier who Sundays has a battle to fight, and some days doesn't and you see very polarizing personalities. There are characters that are based on real people. Who there you can watch interviews with those actual people after you complete the miniseries generation kill is excellent from beginning to end. And I believe we in talking with several people that I met or no that are in the armed forces generation killers. Good. So if it carries you know, by and large their seal of approval. I think that it might be worth mentioning, especially when you wanna talk about marine now that. You know, the listeners neighbor, Mr. Torahs, who served that was World War Two, this would be a much more modern battlefield. And it is regarded as having one of the best depictions of modern soldiers in a in a Hollywood from Hollywood perspective. So I would highly recommend generation kill six oh. Eight chimes in with. And I'm glad we got this. I can't even believe I hadn't this wasn't on my list from TV series match for me was something I grew up watching on, on channel nine late at night when they play the reruns. And but I have to admit like I've never seen the movie, which is embarrassed absolutely have to watch mash, the movie of not only not only because I love the television show and it's done so, well, combining the humor of what happens on everyday life. But also just the fact that it's probably one of the few that depicts the Korean war. Correct. I would say that, if you haven't seen the film, no that it was directed by Robert Altman did Nashville prey on companion. He's an excellent filmmaker who trusted his actors on set, meaning sometimes scenes would be just outlined, and it was mostly improvised, and he trusted them to know their characters and be their characters now. The film, the TV show, the film have different actors some of the characters are actually, like Hawkeye is actually a key character in the film, as well, played by Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould, Tom Skerritt, Robert divall of any law that these are all actors that I think. The Tommy in this film is something that might seem jarring when you're when you're looking at a bunch of doctors who are taking care of soldiers who were wounded or dying, but that was sort of the point of mash, it was to show that in war, when all you see, is the residual damage that comes from a battlefield, how do you keep it together? And another note, I believe mash is one of the first if not the first major motion picture put out by a studio that used the f word awhile. And was worried. I gosh. No, no, no. Nineteen seventy for a little context. There you go. And it did win an Oscar one for adapted. Screenplay. So, yeah, mash is a very big one. And as you mentioned, John, it's one of the few things that focuses on the Korean conflict here, the Korean war. So I definitely would highly recommend mash. And yes, if you've seen the television show. No, that, that this show is based off of the success of the film because there's always stories to tell from the war front. So I think that this however, is an excellent mentioned, especially because it's Robert Altman was a brilliant, filmmaker no longer with us. Brilliant, filmmaker calm and, yeah, the Korean war man, just they, they call it the forgotten war, obviously, you know, with the World War, Two veterans of personal a lot of people served in both situations. But the greatest generation gets all the credit, and they should for, for saving the world from fascism on two different theaters. But the Korean war. War kind of the start of the wars against communism and, you know, so might say ill fought wars, some might say, you know, for a good reason, and sort of a stalemate sort of situation, but no matter what the reason or what the outcome was. You're talking about thirty seven thousand Americans who gave their life on that peninsula. And I will say, though, that having been to Washington DC and lived there, the memorial, if you haven't visited the Korean war memorial, is done very well as the rest of them are too. We're gonna take a quick -mercial break into more with Blake stubs and war movies, documentaries that you might wanna see on that might help put the Memorial Day and other things along those lines into context coming up on seven twenty WGN let's.

'Eighth Grade' and the vagaries of awards season

"From the broadcast center at K P, C C. This is the frame I'm John horn on today's show could future Academy Award ceremonies honor the best screenplay written by an algorithm. Then why Bo Burnham the writer director of eighth grade channeled his feelings about the internet into the character of a thirteen year old girl, I I was very interested in young people flogging about their own life. And I watched hundreds and hundreds of videos and not to be cruel to the boys. But on average, the boys of this age talked about XBox and the girls this age talked about their souls and musician and photographer Anthony Wilson combines both disciplines for his latest release all that coming up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn. This Sunday, they'll be an Oscar for best original screenplay and for best adapted screenplay. But could there soon be a trophy for best screenplay written by an algorithm? We've known for years that technology is radically changing the way that movies are made. But what's remained fairly constant is the human screenwriter after all you can't make a movie without someone writing the script. Or can you if one artificial intelligence company has its way there's an algorithm out there that might be fighting for a share of the writing credit on the next studio blockbuster. We now revisit our peace with frame contributor, Colin freezing. Who explains it all if Robert Altman's movie, the player taught us anything it's that making a hit movie takes a lot of creativity. And frankly, guesswork psychic political thriller comedy with a heart with a heart and not unlike ghost meets entry and candidate conventional wisdom has it that no one ever knows exactly. Audiences want or what will get butts in the seats? But screenwriter William Goldman's aphorism that in Hollywood, no one knows anything may be changing. Here at the American film market in Santa Monica where the world comes to buy and sell movies. There's a company that thinks it can answer that question William Santer, Jack, Jan or with productivity media, and they're here to introduce an artificial intelligence program that will read your script analyze it for forty thousand data points or attributes then we'll tell you how to change it to make it more successful a horror film that features a ghost and the child imperilled has a eighty seven percent probability of overperforming. The benchmark the other day we actually had a conversation on. What kind of weapon with the youth in action film? We have all the kind of what kinds of breakdowns if you use a pistol compared to a handgun compared to a machine gun. We have all these planning or details of of these attributes you put all of that in and you go, you know, what if we changed the handgun to a bazooka this should outperform. We can we can see how it would into the program draws on a database of three thousand eight hundred films going back to the nineties it tracks what elements were in a movie, and how well that film did in any number of demographic groups computer will do a first run and say hope these are the potential elements, and you know, and we have recently started working on getting another layer people looking at those attributes and see, you know, how how actual relevant they are the story. So it's to stop. It's definitely a when you think about it. It's a complex problem solving. Right. The comedy drama or. Thriller. Their gold is to help any genre pitcher become the most successful version of itself. It can be they call it over performing the market or making sure you're cross generational buddy cop comedy with a dog does better than any other cross generational buddy cop comedy with a dog. It's like getting studio notes, but not from some slick executive with a gut feeling but from a coldly calculating cyborg. So it's just a tool set to I always say do one of two fundamental things. Number one is going to confirm what you believe to be true about your project or two it's going to give you an opportunity to ask another question. It all started just a couple of years ago. Jan an engineering student at the university of Waterloo in Canada, cold called the company called productivity media amid sized film. Finance firm Jiang was selling an algorithm that would predict how well a studio would do based on the movies. They were releasing. He. Intrigue the company decided to conduct an experiment using Jiang's database. They paid a film student. Make a trailer with all the key elements of a successful horror film impossible things a movie that doesn't really exist. Features of equestrian house in bath tub and a ghost in child in peril. It's honestly not much to look at. But the response on social media two point four million views was enough to tell them they were on the right track. But this feels like something we should resist to keep creativity alive. Monica Levinson is the president of production at shift Hans pitchers, the company has produced trombone and captain fantastic. And a ton of other. Well, reviewed dramas Levinson is not only skeptical, but worries that drawing on films that were successful sometimes formulaic retreads with mostly white actors might mean, there's no place at the table for new voices and diverse casting choices other things that we're trying to deal with now having more women characters and having better representation. And diversity and better representation of you know, just how characters behave all of that will be continued because that bias will continue from what worked in the past. That's not what works today, but productivity media says there's room in their analytics for all kinds of creative progressive choices take the gay coming of age drama and Oscar winner moonlight. When they ran that script through the algorithm. It determine the film would definitely find an audience before you also made tell based on two essential element in the film to have about eighty percent chance to before in the marketplace. And what was it about the movie that made you think we're made the algorithm think that it was going to do? Well, when we plugging, you know, a drama film with LGBT Salomonsson features African American. Essential elements, those the combination of those three already has a very significant influence on the outcome. But it does beg the question. If everyone is making a movie with the same elements won't that result him. Well, the same kind of movies coming out Santer says you need to think of it like music, if we said to heal whole bunch of musicians that we wanna song that's written in four four time in the key of c with this progression etcetera etcetera, etcetera, we're we're going to get you know, twenty different songs as for how screenwriters will react when. And if they're script feedback comes from an algorithm, maybe nNcholas cage playing version of screenwriter, Charlie Kaufman in adept Haitian, summed it up best sex or guns or car chases. I or characters you know. Learning profound life lessons or growing or coming to like each other or overcoming obstacles to succeed in the end. You know? I feel very strongly about this or the frame. I'm pollen freezing. Coming up on the frame our conversation with Bo Burnham the filmmaker behind eighth grade. He won the best original screenplay prize from the writers guild of America this past weekend. And he's nominated for best feature and best first screenplay at tomorrow's independent spirit awards.
