The Eddie Murphy Hall of Fame

"Are joined by van leith in the cost of higher learning and eddie murphy expert to break down the career. One of the greats. What what i what. I what i was going on with guys hanging in there excited to talk about eddie. We're gonna do a hall of fame here so for the folks out there who have never heard hall of fame episode very briefly. Break down what we do on these episodes. We have built halls of fame for tom. Hanks roger deakins. Nancy meyers toshiro buffoon. A monster movies and most recently george clooney. So it's time for eddie. What we doing we build. A hall is ten films from a career. No more no less. He's got forty movies so we got a lot to talk about here. I'm going to start with this. Amanda eddie murphy. What do you think. I think of multiple eddie. Murphy's i think of a lot of characters all in one movie. This is going to be interesting van. I'm really excited to talk to you about all of these because i've been listening to unsurprisingly. There are a lot of rewatch ables movies. Eddie murphy movies on rewatch bulls and i was listening to some of them in. You're on several of them. And you know i had that podcast thing where you want to respond to the person but you know it's a podcast so now you're here and it's a privilege to get to talk to you but for me eddie murphy is a little bit of. It's a generational cork for me. Because i am just. I think a little bit more than both of you and so i became kind of like movie aware movie sentient like mid nineties. Nine hundred ninety five nine hundred ninety six. And i've done a lot of catch up but if you become aware of movies in the mid nineties that means that the first eddie murphy. You get the nutty professor and then milan. And then shrek. I saw shrek in theaters. Not above it. So you know at that point. He's like the elder statesmen of comedy super established. Like i knew the beverly hills cop steam song and dance to it while before i saw it but kind of understanding him as like family eddie murphy and then catching up on everything else. Interesting chronological or not chronological murphy. Experience for me. Then you want to do your history with eddie. I know you are been living with him for a long time. Yes i have been So i hambur what year this was and i don't wanna insult my parents. Every time i mentioned my parents. I get some minor detail wrong and then i have to hear about it into along to our phone call. Your parents listen airpods today. Let's no your show's. I wish they wouldn't but that's nice. Yeah i wish they would but they My father was taking me to see a movie. We were all going to the movies but this time we were breaking it off like my father was taking me to see one of the superman movies. It's either three or four and my sister. My grandmother my mother went to see beverly hills cop two and this was my first experience with with with seeing people so jazz to see a movie because they went this way. Like we went to the superman franchise. I fell off by that point so we went this way and they go this way when they go this way. They're all of these people over there. And i'm like daddy i wanna go over here and he's i know that's too old for you. We're gonna go watch superman. And i say that because that's the moment that i actually became movie sentient by. That's the start of it. That's like what are these people into. Before that i can't tell you when i i kind of became aware of eddie murphy. Because he's like michael jackson in the sense that there was never a time. I wasn't aware of him. I was born in nineteen eighty so by the time. I start getting Information downloaded into me eddie. Murphy's a part of that he's like a part of that thing but the first time. I realized that this guy isn't just a do that. I see on tv or the guy that that he is. The biggest thing in the world is what i saw. People excited to go for it felt. So that's my that's my memory of him and it's not even necessarily what you might call one of his mega classics like beverly hills. Cop two was the event that you can remember that says a lot. And that's eighty seven net says a lot about where we were with. Eddie he was kind of in the middle of i. There are very few movie star runs in the history of movies like the one he had in the eighties. The rise to fame which starts on. Tv i guess tom hanks Robin williams maybe In terms of just successful movies maybe will in there but those movies weren't weren't quite the same as well. what is there were talking about. It's really remarkable when you think about it. There's no like they're not like high concepts with willa was like he needed to be punching an alien in the face to get to this level and like eddie movies are just like it's especially in the eighty s. Eddie is just running around doing stuff. That's that is what this movie is. He's he's being harassed whether he's a cop or he's a convict fresh outta jail or if he's a guy off the street who gets taken into financial institution like it's just it's entirely built around his persona and his sense of humor which is is unusual. We don't see that very much. These

How '1917' filmmakers made WWI film look like a continuous shot

"A gasp inducing feet of cinematic immersion for director. Sam Mendes Mendes grenades. Movie nineteen seventeen dispatches two British soldiers on a do or die mission across the battle lines and house gates of World War capturing every every step every spine tingling explosion when you walk. She's filming not just watching. Genuinely are experiencing a war film like few in recent memory the second due to attack the line shortly often dawn tomorrow nine hundred seventeen is wage at a time before nations fought with missiles fighter jets. It was unlike any other film I've ever made and and and ever will make probably it's images depicting brutal combat from one hundred years ago as soldiers and their horses came. Face to face with with weaponry are story that you can get lost in can get thrilled by its thrills. Gunfire and perilous adventures made all the more mesmerized because the film appears to consist of a single continuous shot Herculean undertaking conjured up by the mind minded Mendez. What made it the right idea for this movie? It seemed a natural thing to not have any cuts. And that's how I prefer to describe it. A movie with no cuts net rather than one shot movie experiencing every second passing in what is effectively a race against time to aw a century old conflict captured using twenty first century technology cameras carried through muck and debris strategically mounted on techno cranes cream cars and motorcycles. Moving in choreographed chaotic symphony by feel in some way it requires is a different level of emotional investment. You feel okay. Well if I'm here with these guys I'm just GonNa have to live with that and so it seemed to me to put the audience in the shoes of the characters were they. They literally don't know who's telling the truth and what the reality is. What's around the next corner because there's no way of finding out of than going? I got the heart of the film buoyed by solid performances from its to lead roles betrayed not by a-list actors up and comers George Mackay and Dean Charles Chapman Films. You know it's not ah just about the first World War. It's about the human experience what is to be human and I think the context of war is one in which humans are stretched physically and emotionally the absolute limits with such long takes for every shot the cast and crew rehearsed for months before filming. You understand that the focus puller. He's expected to get. Ah every time. The boom operators the cameraman capturing this if his. Timing's out just by a hair. That takes unusable. I think Sam just did a really good job in Mike and Phil let pressure and then a why everybody had pressure even the camera department. The sound caused by out there on Lou. Choreographed down on his weathers waited a carefully. Calculated dance dance but for nine hundred Seventeen Mendez was also drawing on personal history dark tales of the great war as told to him. Once by his grandfather Alfred Menendez it was the and my cousins pestering him thinking we were going to hear stories of heroism and bravery in and you know how he won his medals and it was going to be cool and instead he turned around and and told stories of absolute chaos World War One was supposed to be the war to end all wars golfing dozens of countries and costing millions of lives lives at such a massive scale filmmakers had to construct a world bill to mythic proportions. It built the end over mile of trenches and we filled them with thousands the people and all built around just the actors just these two camera. Operators waded through treacherous terrain. All under the watchful eye of Academy Award winning cinematographer Roger Deakins matching marking his fourth collaboration with Manda every trench had to be measured the exact length every orchard of Reform Foam House. Every town street had to be exactly the right length of the scene because there was no cutting distance jumping

Sam Mendes explains why he made the World War I epic '1917' — and chose to present it as one long take

"The upcoming film. Nineteen seventeen is an ambitious World War One drama co written and directed by Sam men. Does he made the Oscar winning American beauty to pull off his idea for how to shoot it. He turned famed cinematographer. Roger Deakins for nineteen eighteen seventeen deacons and Mendez. Set out to do something really difficult which was filmed the movie. As if it's all one continuous shot Mendez has back on theater which made shooting nineteen seventeen as one shot a little bit easier. I feel like I use a lot of my muscles when it came to staging individual scenes for example particularly in compressed spaces in the trenches and dugouts rooms. And what have you so there are similarities. The differences however that the landscape escape is constantly moving and the cameras constantly. Moving your orders to get to the second. A quasi would one mile. Southeast of the town of ACOUST- Mackenzie. It is a direct order to call off tomorrow morning's attack if you don't it will be it's about two people most of the time and in a vast landscape and tried to justice not only to their emotional journey but to the huge panorama of destruction that they're moving through and I'm trying to let the movie breathe in and breathe out whereas stage. You kind of just always breathing in when you look at playback Roger and you're checking to see of a shot works. How do you make sure that the shot itself works that you're getting what you need cinematic Louis and that you're getting performance and how do you? How are you score a certain scene to make sure that both are at the level that you're happy with I mean I don't WanNa fill much playback much I mean I was watching play back on this quite quite a bit but it was very different because the shots were worked out very well in advance the takes we were looking back? There were a small things to finesse. Maybe with the camera or something we might discuss about the relationship before the access to the camera the actors were to lined up we'll subjects. Yeah but interestingly when we've got it we almost never would watch playback. We just came out of our respective horsebox as which were often and miles away from where the action ended up. Because these people were the lads were traveling Hoffa mine in one shot and we look at each other and say yeah that's and I remember talking to the producer. Marc Abraham who made children of men and there are a lot of long takes in that film and he would tell me about calling the studio same studio universal and they'd say what he got for us today and he's like we don't have have anything we didn't get a shot so when you have a tough day what are the results and are there some days for whatever reason whether something else where you don't don't get a shot but you know that you're moving forward. Yes they will not. Today's we didn't get a shows but the great stroke of genius was was that Roger had the courage to say this and if we know in cloud we all going to be able to shoot saying most suicidal and genius actually mean gene. Sunlight was your worst enemy. Because then you can't match the sun comes out once in the film and that's the last shot the film where I wanted to come out. He arranged it cost him a a lot of money. But the the We told the studio and the first production meeting and to their immense credit. They did go a bit Pale but they didn't freak out and they trusted us that we were going to get it in the end and we were lucky with with with the weather having said that we also the hell out of it for months and months and months and we work very very hard and there were days which were extremely frustrating but they would generally forgotten immediately because you get the show and then you move on and you'll so thrilled exhilarate took got it. We're talking with SAM. Mendes Roger Deakins about their film nineteen seventeen. I saw the film last night and I was sitting next woman who for the majority of the film was in a fetal position. But the fact that this woman was viscerally fearful as if she was in a horror movie to me kind of spoke to the way I I am mentioned. You hope the film work's the key is that you don't want to feel as an audience manipulated so an that is tricky because you you aware that this is a real historic event and there's a certain amount of respect that needs to be paid for the people who lived through it and it's not an entertainment but at the same time you want people to fit fearing and Tara an adrenaline is exactly what they lived through long periods of boredom awaiting and then short bursts of Sotero. I think that the one show helps with that because I think you feel in a weird way pull-in claustrophobic that you know you begin to feel even if you don't intellectually understand that you've been to feel there is no way out Roger. Let me ask you this last question. And there've been a lot of films about World War Two and I think part of what your film gets at is that thousands of people died over hundreds of yards at the carnage in relation to the geography was incalculable. And if people are thinking about what happened during World War One and what might you hope they appreciate about this war that maybe they didn't fully understand now. I grew up in south of England in Devon on all the little villages and towns in Devin even have a monument in the center on the village. Green Ano- one in particular is got twenty five names on it. It's got six names games all the surnames. The same is got another five or the surnames. The same old. Those kids came from the same family. This is a little rural village in Devon and that's all over the country and it's so sad that those sacrifices have forgotten. I'm sorry again a bit emotional. It's I was brought up up seeing that and I always wondered what happened and I've been so interested in studying both the wars because of that I think think this film if it if it brings back some memory and some interest in it again. But it's I'm I gotTa say if we show what was really in some of the photographs that we saw in references. The wouldn't be anybody in the audience after five minutes. I mean it was

"Cinematographer which is a cinematographer do and it's filmed has something to do with Ranging film screen reading's induction. They're basically control the the whole artistic flow of the movie. I would just say the general artistic flow. I'm not an expert I guess at the cinematographers helped set up the shots and figure out how things are supposed to look inside and camera. We joke as I get older under the cameras. Get lighter digital cameras. Get lighter still and it's great. It's great for me because I can still shoot hand held without ruining my back. You know that last voice is Roger. Deacons he's among the best and definitely one of the best known cinematographers alive for starters. He is practically a Third Cohen brother. He worked with with the COENS on Fargo. No country for old men true grit and nine more films over his career so far. He's gotten fourteen Oscar nominations and won one Oscar. I spoke to him in two thousand sixteen when he had been nominated for his work. On sicario Dunedin News Thriller about the Mexican drug. Wars Deacons told me that new digital cameras have been great for him but haven't really changed how he does his job. The films I've done not so much because has I think the filmmaking is still really about capturing that moment it's not like okay. You couldn't digitally you can put on a chip and you can roof over forty five minutes and let the camera roll. Oh but you're not necessarily getting that moment so it still doing film is still concentrating on that moment. You need to make that same work performance element so that you know one thing. You operate the camera yourself a lot. I do always alleged son a particular kind of rig like A. I don't operate steady. Eddie Cam you know you don't have to. You could hire a person to be the camera. Operator what what does it give you. Either as a fetish object or creatively. The holding the camera. I come from a documentary back grind. So I'm kind of used to work in instinctively. Connector is doing something that was unexpected. Then it's the operator has to make that shot worked as a cinematographer. If I wasn't operate in I wouldn't be able to necessarily communicate somebody because time you say someone Oh you follow him out the room or what track in or something. I wouldn't have time to communicate that but if I'm up rating and and I work with an assistant I've worked with now for fifteen or twenty years Dolly Grip of what with twenty six years. I can be on a Dolly and I can just give a signal and they'll there may be a push geno. They'll wait may be moved the camera such away allowing that act of freedom but also hopefully complementing what they're doing with with. What the camera does you know? I I think that's really so much what I do. It's like a high wire act because anytime you could fail completely. Yeah as I said You just got near Thirteenth Oscar nomination for SICARIO. Congratulations thank you I. I liked the movie very much. Emily Blunt plays this this fairly straight arrow. FBI agent who winds up in Mexico tracking down a drug lord. I'M GONNA go through a scene and play it and and uh okay. Beautiful Scene One of the many beautiful scenes in the film where where Emily Blunt gets up on a roof and having smoke in wants. I WanNa see something. Cool the total of the scene is shot over two evenings. Because you couldn't shoot all those shots in one evening within the timeframe that you Have light for so she and her colleague at sunset basically are going up for this absolutely western Panorama. Yeah it had to be doc enough that you so the explosion and the police lights and the shooting here we go. I mean this is shall we. We hadn't story Buddha. That's just something we constructed with as we were there on the day. I'm I'm staring now at the still at the end of that scene of these clouds it's like a constable painting or something it's it's It's a student. Yeah I mean you must have did you say oh my God God. I'm glad we're shooting tonight or those kinds of unplanned -able right visual right. Things must be bliss when they fall into your life right right now that work well. We had to shoot quite quickly actually because a thunderstorm came in quite soon after we finished shooting until I would have almost wrecked the place. We knew the restrictions Yeah we were very lucky with cloud formations. When we first discussed the film? We thought that the landscapes in the sky escapes would be very bold like it was just be playing blue skies and Bright Lancia happen very stark and it was a particularly Active monsoon in season when we were shooting. So we got these amazing skies and and we both realized you know that we had to use it because we shed you. It really made sense that it made the landscape even more of an a character than we initially kind of it should be. You know in a case like that. Okay you shoot the first night. Whoa these amazing being multicolored mountains of clouds great? Yeah but then you're gonNA shoot again the next ninety worry like Oh what am I completely tomorrow. Yeah Yeah I mean that was a big concern. We were lucky on that rooftop stuff The later seen when Is it late or early. When they go to the tunnel the tunnel that goes under the border yeah yeah win that getting out the SUV's and the twilight there? We shot most of the shots on the first evening again. A block of an hour really to shoot. Maybe six seven shots but on the second evening we had to do this long tracking show where they disappear into the darkness and of course the sky was very different but nobody seems to have picked up on that. But it's very different. Yes no we're always talked to me but nobody else now. Now you've revealed it. You busted your ruin it for everybody. Yeah exactly yeah I obsess about things like that but you know in the drama film. You know it's amazing what you can get away with. Do you have your own. The ideas about you know how things should look that that come up again and again and again well sometimes I mean on Sakari of for instance Sometimes you kind of think about it and Oh yeah we could shoot everything early in the day or late in the day and get that low angled sunlight but both Danny and I said now we want it to look brutal. We don't we wanted to look ugly. Didn't even leave the director and sometimes it's better to go for something that's ugly. There's it is the danger that you just shoot pretty pictures and issue with the best light the most beautiful light right that usually entirely your job or is on the hour by hour minute by minute do you and the director sort of an. Let's put it here now. Let's do this here. How does that work Very some Ingelin lethem. Some for instance have a very clear idea of the cussing patent that they're going to use in the film the Coen brothers and a story board the whole movie on another another film with another direct. You might leave most of it up to the time. You're rehearsing in the morning with the actors on set their films taking the whole roof the they're so visually distinct one from the other. You know you the yeah. Yeah sort of super realistic. Bright Fargo. Then Warr Dr Barton fank thank the the other kind of brightness of no country for old men and on and on Weei which must make it like you worked with them a dozen times but for are you it must be. I don't know where I'm going to get this time. It's not shooting the same looking film China they're always creating another world another. Yeah another universe did for the audience. The difference between the man who wasn't there for instance and I'm von Think to True Grit to Hell Caesar which is a comedy about. Ah making it takes the nineteen fifties the the sort of golden age of Hollywood and we see movies being made and we see the executives and the offices when we see sailors and dancing and Romans and chariots and all that this must have been from your standpoint the dream job because you get to shoot movies lease within the movie and all different kinds of style. Yeah I mean it was a lot of fun. Yeah I'm an associate challenge. I mean the beginning. You kind of tell us fantastic. Yeah I got a chance to do that. But then you sort of the logistics of it and then so oh my God how am I actually going to light though how do we actually shoot a submarine at night you know Oh and stuff like Roger Deakins. It's been great talking to you and You I knew has been pleasure. Yeah thanks very much. Roger Deacons newest film is called Nineteen Eighteen.

"To one of their meetings and it was really quite endurable horrible except a great deal of singing by a young lady who could not sing. You See. The meeting was at the fair damsels house so it was her great and only chance to go on the program as often as she wished and she sang. Twelve times not counting encores the Twelfth Quilt Song. How to refrain beginning? Pray does this music charm thy heart which considering the universal disgust was a somewhat delicate question. A lot of people remarked on her conversational ability and her One interviewer pointed out that she was a sort of woman who would call somebody a mutton. Head Oh and just like. She was very frank and very explicit with people and didn't really suffer fools Cather's sometimes signed her letters William she she lived with her partner. Edith Lewis for forty years. Is it safe to say or accurate to say that Caterpillar was a lesbian. Yes I certainly think so. Some of the biographies that are now quite old like from the eighties and some newer works to made claim which seems to me ridiculous. Okay they would say Cather's emotional. Attachments were to women but she probably lived a celibate life. In nineteen eighteen. My Antonia was published. It was the last of a trilogy. Three Books Cata wrote about the prairie and it's considered one of her best works. The wagon jolted on carrying me. I knew not whither. I don't think I was homesick. If we never arrived anywhere it did not matter between that Earth and that Sky I felt erased blotted out but did not say my prayers bears that night. Here I felt what would be would be this book. There are parents deaths. There are wolves there's suicide rape murder. How did it end up with this? Like fusty dusty reputation. I don't know I sometimes think it was bad marketing It might have been the sort of cultural expressions of the pioneer experience that that kind of followed cather. You know whether it was Laura Ingalls Wilder or Western TV shows. How a got the reputation? Probably some bad book covers with A high necked addresses and and ingrained blowing in the wind. I think that's why I didn't want to read caverns young person I thought it'd be Ho- how boring and it's all about When meals and cows you know and then I read it and realize no? It's about like a emotion and danger and love and and sex and all these other things which is where the books covers fail. Because when Jim and Antonia the main characters I arrive in Nebraska as little children. They find the life. There is a far grimmer darker than an illustrated windmill or a cow. The year before my Antonia was published Congress began for the first time time really tightening immigration laws the US they have the same Jimmy he kept saying in a hurt tone. These foreigners ain't the same. You can't trust them to be fair. It's dirty to kick a feller you heard out of the women turned on you and after all we went through on account of last winter. They ain't to be trusted. I don't WanNa see you get too thick with any of them. Julia Olin Amateur Berta Book About Willa Cather and Edith Wharton. She says because the Shamir does were immigrants they were viewed with suspicion suspicion by almost everyone even when Antonia's mother tries to give Jim's family a gift. Yeah it's dried mushrooms. That they have gathered. In the forests of Bohemia Oh he mia and brought all the way into the new world and Antonia even tells Jim it's very good. It makes things very good but when they get home. Jim's grandmother is just like weird foreign food and dumps it in the garbage but you know it seems almost like a threw away. But it's it's a little message about Zena Phobia in you lose something you lose out on something. When using a phobic remember reading that part and thinking Oh my God what would we pay today for an ounce of dried mushrooms from Czechoslovakia? Exactly two hundred twelve dollars a pound for truffles or something so yeah. It's something like that and they throw it away. Cather's wild west is far are from the West. We know from Hollywood cowboy boots in covered wagons Austin Graham teaches English at Columbia. You can imagine a version of the novel Kabir could have written. That would have been entirely sentimental and it would have been about the you know the virtues of country living but Antonia's father is also an immigrant story. You you know. A man whose life is significantly worse when it comes to the United States who's utterly isolated who takes his life and is buried alone in the middle of nowhere because the region's won't allow his body and metairie and there's nowhere else for him to go because Antonia's father has committed suicide his body this shunned by the church so the Shamir's are forced to bury him on their own property? Jim's family are also immigrants their Norwegian but the Perry has a caste system immigrants from western. Europe are okay. Immigrants from other places like the Americas who are not very very memorably right in gyms grandfather's grandfather's funeral speech for Antonio's father say we failed to these people we weren't as welcoming to these strangers in the land as we ought to have have been. I thought his prayer remarkable. I still remember it. Oh great and just God. No Man among us knows what the sleeper knows does nor is it for us to judge what lies between him and the prayed that if any man there had been remissed toward the stranger come to a far country God God would forgive him and soften his heart recently. Bret Stephens an OP ED writer. At The New York Times wrote about my Antonia. He says the novel is a story of a country that can can overcome prejudice. He wrote about how the narrators grandfather helped the Merida's forgave them their debts and put petty quarrels aside here. He is reading from his column. It's an such moments that my Antonia becomes an education and what it means to be American to have come from elsewhere with very little to be mindful amid every retracting of prosperity of how little we once had and were to protect and nurture those newly arrived wherever from as if they were our own immigrant. GRIMM ancestors equally scared equally humble and equally determined gather has packed my intimate with female characters. But as you read about what happens to them it can be hard to understand. The book could have been written by a feminist author like Lena lingard another young immigrant. Who's accused of putting a farmer? Only Benzion who was is married out of his head. After the last Tim had been son and the congregation was dismissed. Ole slipped out to the hitch bar and lifted Lena on on her horse. That in itself was shocking. A married man was not expected to do such things. Giulio an amateur describes Lena as Marilyn Alan Monroe figure sexy and naive but not really. It seemed like she was being penalized for doing nothing but existing. She just happened to be really really gorgeous. Yeah kind of her. Crime is being too sexy inside. All of those wore. No clothes like she couldn't tell Canada's really interesting things with I think the way people really are. Everybody thinks that you know only and Lena must be having a sexual relationship and you know later. Lena says he just liked to talk to me. He was lonely out there. I was lonely out there. 'cause she's out all day in the fields like taking care of the sheep goats or whatever it is just like we're just hanging out maybe you lose the steer and learn not to make some things with your. Is it married men. Mrs Shamir told her hectoring. -Ly Lena only smiled author. Sleepy smile I never made anything to him with my eyes. I can't help it if he hangs around and I can order him off. It ain't my prairie. It's not the cancer other is beating women up instead of each story. She showing a different example of how a woman's life could turn out. Unfortunately Antonia gets thrown every obstacle in the book. She falls for a loser. Guy Named Larry Donovan who works on the Railroad. Larry promised her a ring but then he leaves her without the ring. But expecting thing a baby Antonia decides to have the Child on her own Juliane Amitav says if you think this is a woman being weak. You are so wrong. This is about being resilient and human oftentimes when people are both good and bad like Antonia falling for that. Do she guy. His his name is blocked out That gray area. That murky Nasdaq complexity. Makes things more fascinating in I mean and that's how we are. You know we all make a bad choices being shurmur making good choices. There's another puzzling aspect to the book..

Gotham Awards: 'Marriage Story,' 'The Farewell,' 'Uncut Gems' Lead Nominations

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

"The Museum of Modern Art was a set built correct here obviously exteriors the real thing but yeah we we built a set yeah and then you had to have the bombing sequence. Would you talk about that shoot yeah. I mean that was tricky. I suppose I I John John was really keen on the aftermath of the bombing to be like this void he just wanted to kind of complete. Emptiness of the OS is kind of getting up amongst the rubble he didn't John didn't want to know where we were didn't want to know where he was. Just this avoid and I done in a few things that are not you know Anjar Heddon on bladerunner as well so it was kind of okay so the thing to do is like you just fill the warehouse house with smoke basically just because we go I mean we couldn't get enough smoke really just kept pumping into you couldn't see anything because the problem problem was I mean the set is not huge because it wouldn't have looked real for the last scene in the film when they're walking around the real museum before it blows up so you had tonight. We had to knock out the background with atmosphere so I had to be really thick to take it out at that distance away. Was it mostly practical effects in that so yeah eh practically it wasn't very nice. I should have this before. The bomb needs her scenes with his mother. He has a sense of safety. Would you describe how you live there earlier scenes before the Matt. What is the same risk same lighting are just basically recreated the lighting thing that set the real place you know with better they used it with skype panels? Led skype panel so I could change the color subtly change the color but also control control of the basic panels about ninety skype panels in big blocks but that gave me the option to like have the far end of the block brighter than the end so I could grade the light in a way especially for the aftermath. I needed to have stronger light at the back in us. Oh the characters were slightly Ciller at against atmosphere that was kind of blown out so basically I did do one lighting setup suited both those situations say just based on the real thing well I didn't eat to which they haven't met is a little spotlights the paintings which always bugs me on the go to the Mat because you've got a daylight source of its Chubu daylight cubes but they're daylight only got Lisa or tungsten spotlights on the paintings and well. I mean that's two different vastly different colored light on a painting that I don't understand that it's like really cheesy but anyway so I didn't do that. I just used this big overhead soft light for you. What was the most challenging creatively creatively and would you describe why the challenging thing I think creatively actually not is not a scene to scene things more the overall kind of texture of the film the shooting scenes that back together but there might that weeks apart in the shed Jill and you gotta get continuity in our flow to uh-huh visual of flow so it feels like you're watching the same film and then you go from you know in this case city to city and you kind of want to bring the changes but you still want to be at the same movie you don't want it to sort of jump so I think it's successful in that way that that the whole thing seems to hang together visually and emotionally as one piece the challenge individual scenes you know I mean and obviously you're doing the two kids you know take acid or whatever is on the swings and when they're outside Vegas dusk us come down and they stagger back to the apartment or the House I mean that's kind of a challenge because you don't have much time to do those kind of Dusk Dash shots you? Maybe get one evening to do it in the SHEDU otherwise. You don't know where you're going to you know what I mean. It's not like a huge production so it's Kinda. We got bat. Isn't that's a bit of a high when you get something like that but that's just a logistics thing really was there a technical challenge that was more pronounced than the others the hardest challenge shoot and the exterior of on a Sunday morning we go that yeah you can only shoot. They're up to like nick. I think it's like eight thirty nine o'clock. Maybe it's ten o'clock. It's no later than that so you get there in the morning. When it star you set everything up you set your embassies up the people in the rain brain towers oldest and then you realize it's not a cloud in the sky and it's meant to be a rainy day so then you figure well? We've you've got to shoot this before like eight eight fifteen before the sun comes over those buildings on whatever it is fifth avenue and yeah that's the biggest technical challenges that John we could be in trouble here with the sun. We've got to do this real quick. That's her because it's really feel right from new car coaxes coming coming out and he's going to be all the extras got covered in dust and look like they've just been bombed. I mean that's not an easy thing to do in a few hours so I think it was quite successful given that kind of pressure you know to me. What time of year were you shooting in New York? That must have been in March. I think think daylight we couldn't start that early. Amendment didn't really get light to six or seven so we didn't have time to shoot shoot those shops and not so much shooting the shots set and all the background and getting the action right and getting the feel of that one moment. It's not many shots in the film but so very important moment in a shot this with an Alexa. Would you discussed your lens choice's just normal. I mean the only thing we did differently on it. was we did some very shallow depth of field shots for the pre explosion so that because these things would John wanted to use interspersed within the film in different places just Theo's memory of that moment when his mother left him and explosion Shen and obviously we couldn't we didn't want to do it kind of big affects thing you know it's a marvel comic movie so we wanted to kind of concentrate on Taos perception memory of that moment and those little details the mother's hand leaving his shoulder. The mother walk in off out of focus awesome stuff like so we we did quite a lot of tests on that show that really really shallow depth of field so we had slightly this rapidly out of focus in I made it wasn't any different lynch choice really it was just a matter of shooting really wide open and and sometimes just pulling focus forward when you would naturally drop focus back so when the mother walks away we would actually pull focus forwards. She was and more out of focus rather than coming. You know to me but I mean we never really went longer than the sixty five or not. It wasn't something that wanted to do on long lenses. This is basically shooting in that sort of mid range in the thirty five forty fifty that is quite straightforward film in a photographic. That's really about each little scene. It's the little things that are important. It's such a personal story so intimate intimate and so much about this one character so things about his face about his point of view an assay. It's is Lonzo details. It's like little things we did like in in the House in Las Vegas as a kid is code up on the floor and ah you go to the hotel room in Amsterdam Melissa's James's. ID feels culled up. There's an adult he's code up on the floor in the same way as that what kind of little moments of torment that kind of I thought quite magical and that's what it was about more than the larger kind of challenges it us about the just those little things little details..

"A lot of people every time that roger deakins gets nominated i have my fingers crossed he sort of like uh the score says he of cinematography although score says he has since won but was famously overlooked for so many years i he has such an interesting body of work and i think that in a way runner twenty forty nine is a perfect movie for him to win four because it looks amazing and incredible and that's sort of it it's just a series of very beautifully photographed sifi postcards and deacon's cinematography is like the one thing about the movie that everyone could kind of agree on uh so i would like to see that happen for you know him to have to put on a tuxedo 14times among home emptyhanded would be condoms what what if he thought that tuxedo you know there are so many issues around that the oscars has been collecting uh over the past few years to white to male and now though the sexual abuse allegations coming out tina or what do you think how has this list of nominations with those issues behind the where did it really fall down did you see any change um that's a good question i think that time i think that the nominations are pretty well rounded like there's nothing that i've i'm sort of seeing where a there'd be a major snub i know people were concerned for example like will gregor wig be nominated you know given how few women have been nominated in the past and i think that throughout this award season like specific issues and primarily at you know the times up campaign and sexual abuse has really made such a strong um there's just so much momentum up behind it and it's on everyone's minds and when you have the golden globes are very.
