"So when we were shooting the brothers, they loved everything to be super authentic and period. So it was like a 102 and a 100% humidity and everybody had on wool long underwear and it was cotton wool, like three, four layers. And so it was just so hot. And we had we had extras falling over there at EMTs off to the side, like, you know, rehabilitating them. And giving them, you know, the saline drips. It was just there was something bizarrely dramatic going on. But they were always absolutely calm and supportive and like we're going to get this and watching the two of them talk and then work with roger deakins who shot it, which was, and that was the thing is I can't believe roger deakins is shooting something that I'm doing. I'm just like, oh my God. And that you're right. They are very specific to the script and the tax that it's it's word for word, but the thing is is like the writing is so good at least for myself and other friends who worked with the brothers is like the writing is so good and it makes so much sense that it's like it's not hard to learn and to love and embrace. You know, it's like you just get it. There's other projects where it's like, I wish I could change this because I'm just not feeling it. I'm having a hard time getting there and that can happen on stage and just in anything. Except for it sometimes you do get this work that's just so strong on the page that you just know just learn it and fall away. And get out of your way and so to film with them, especially because they set it up to be at a very like they wanted it all in one take because they were doing this kind of sweeping. It was like this kind of boom shot and then a push in and they wanted to get it all in one, so within everything that was happening in the scene, you know, we had to just get it and not wanting it to break. So there was that pressure and thrill of don't muck this up because you don't want to be the jackass is the reason for okay back to one. And so that was that was fun. And to Washington to be a part of that. And the most interesting dynamic in terms of direction with them is they would come up and give direction separately. So Ethan would come up and then he would very quietly like tell me what he would want and then you'd do a take..

"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

I guess i can't think of one of those but there's only one seen in the whole movie where the bright and sunny day i can't think of which it is it is Apparently roj deacons hated that scene because it through He felt it threw off the mood of the rest of the movie. I don't even remember it being ever like a sunday winter on all times of without something that he wanted to keep consistent though. Is that the winter like moody dark. Foggy i guess is it. When he's doing he's digging the hole maybe to put the money because it's pretty bright it. Yeah it's really bright outside. It's almost like the snow is kind of melty near you. Might be right because i feel like when we look. I swear like you can like the sun is like he's bright like he's it. Looks like he's sweating something even though he's bleeding check how is it. Throw off the move as a whole movie. If it's at the end maybe we're wrong unless they filmed it like. I don't know we'll never know I love roger deakins movies again.

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

"roger deakins" Discussed on Behind The Screen

"Friends again looks like it dogfight. Here's went us. I think what mm-hmm where did Editorial come in where was Lee. Your editor Lee Smith involved. And how did you work together. Lee was definitely the unsung hero. Because you you think would need it. In unbroken unbroken shot movie that the editor would be frankly supplus the requirements but the truth was he was pivotal because what he was doing was he was back in London but he was putting the shelves together. He was in many cases putting temp score on it. Getting the sound right occasionally borrowing takes kidneys speeding things up so many things down. You know that sort of thing and we were able will to see. The movie emerged very quickly and judge from the shots What the rhythm of what we were capable of? What what what was possible in the following scene so for example as seen towards the end of the movie where Scofield play by George Takei stumbles on a a soldier in the woods? To abandon of two battalions and it it takes. Its time this scene and I'm not sure had I not been able to see the movie right up to that point whether I I would have had the courage as a director to allow it to take the time it does and I think that that's because of Lee feeding the movie back over time he's also very very good judge of performance and that was crucial because we had to choose are selected. Take very quickly because we had to match to that take immediately the literally the next day and in some cases on the day itself that we shelter we shot somebody in the morning and I had to select the tape that was going to be in the movie a five minute take definitively so that we could match to the the tape we were shooting in the afternoon and and so it it made you. You have to make decisions quickly and it was you know. Sometimes you think but done this to myself and then shot chronologically itself. We should as chronology could. Yeah I mean we jumped around a bit when we went up North to Glasgow but yes we were watching gene. The movie emerge chronologically which also is incredibly helpful. Unhelpful for the actors to they live through it in sequence and then how did visual effects step in to help the blending. When you had cuts the blends were worked out very very carefully in advance? I mean we if anything talked about them to the expensive almost everything else she yeah so he was asked about. It was all about we. Sam said he had choose take. And then we'd start the next take and we'd have the match the action the the distance of the actors from the land that footsteps. Even you know so that when they passed the moment where the blend is. They're actually footsteps going in the right. Synchronicity together and everything so that was really that was really crucial. So where we put the blends was really crucial. We talked about that a lot. The variety of the blends. I don't think we should ever talk right now about which sharp lands in. which aren't because I know already? Some people are saying. Well I know you change the job. There and mm-hmm we didn't we did. Where were you? You wouldn't imagine it worse there are some that are genuinely. I mean the laws in fact invisible but but at the same time but in in each case it was a combination of at least networking with your visual Effects House. Pc Yeah absolutely and and supervisors supervises and and I think the majority of visual. It's work in the movies is set extensions and Foto Real continuations of landscape and background removals and this other the thing and and it's different from the norm because I think what you're offering visual houses you're sending them a two second shot or four seconds. Enjoy ten second shop and they give back to the few frame handles and away you go right but these all shots you have you live in you. Sort of marinate and often. You're seeing do things constantly from different angles. It's not just the church from the front digestion. Sign on a church from behind and it's burning and at different distances. From at any given moment the blossoms blossoms that fall in the river you know after be adjusted and adjusted an adjusted as they move it's living environments on and not just distant landscapes. It's an and that had to be integrated into the things we'd found and we wanted it. You know it has to be part of the lighting the world the atmosphere that we shot. And that's what takes the lead and everything. So it's unusual in that regard even though we were shooting in cloud some disparity time a day between a side and the B side of a shot that you put in a little blends timing wise in that and we very adamant that everything that the visual effects guys did came back without any baked in timing on anything so we have control over that in the but obviously you're helping the idea of it going into dusk but I mean when we did Glasgow which is the last show. It's meant to be dusk going across canal bridge. We shut that late afternoon. I mean I managed to actually stole stole before we shot. You thought we didn't know what was going to break my leg to well. The thing is is that actually I mean what what I mean. It's obviously been a tweet significantly by Roger and Greg is the Congress but but really it's not far from where we show them and and And I think that One of the great things about shooting on digital on one of the great things that I felt and this was on sky fall as well when we lost worked together. Is that you do what you see. On onset is very very close to the finished product is finished and and has that detail that you need from continuity but without again gave us the confidence that things that you know Bap Sean in more light than we would initially wished could work as dascomb workers own own You know workers the breaking of day. And that just gives you the confidence onset to say yes. It's that tape. We're moving on because without confidence. You could be sitting there the second guessing yourself for weeks and sometimes when does normal movies each take offense. They had their own challenges. But what was the one that most kept you up at night. Well I mean we had different ones. I would think the one that kept me out. Most of the night will be a surprise It was the first show on the movie that that that was the one that concerned me the most actually because it wasn't just a shot it's not particularly complex shot but getting that tone right and living with these boys was given the mission. I think we know what the stakes are. You know the ticking clock everything but you wanna live with them in real time and they talk a I bet when they walk a bit and they don't do much and that for me wall you also know that probably this point the audience is beginning to sense with this is shorts going on and for that not to feel self conscious either from the actors or from the Kuna Camera. I thought that was that that was the thing that an and it also spend spend a lot of time with that in post getting the music rights and getting that feeling just as I wanted it so that was for me. The thing that caused Komo sleep loss. Jane Roger I wanted the Sun to come out the end of the film and it does it really does James Rojas wife. Life said Roger. You can't make the sun come out. But she was wrong she was wrong. Some comes out now. You also had more than five hundred extras presence. I understand there are a lot of extras but I also did something I've done before. which is I additional of them Now addition to my I got what a wonderful eighty team to basically you know. Ask them three questions you know. What's your favorite? TV Show what you WANNA do for. What was your ambition when you're young you know and and and walk around a bit and the reason is very quickly can see you know and the level of physical dexterity lack of dexterity and both of them were were valid for this movie? The personality comes through very quickly and so we were very careful out of the two thousand people. We'll dishes that we chose those five hundred very specifically and he made a big difference. I have to say made a big difference and plus Michael Domain whose office and co-producer. He's brilliant absolutely brilliant with background and You know spent a long time. There were put through boot camp. They were you know. There were dressed intense that was surrounded by picture research. The period documentaries playing the corner and music from the period replaying the background and the they also were very influenced by the feeling of teamwork and Excitement excitement that this way of working engendered They were really Gung Ho. They got it. They understood what was required of them. They knew the camera wouldn't cut and there's is a freedom in that and excitement that they used to so they could just do it. You know full full out and not stop you know and that was I think really helpful for background so because they really weren't important aren't important part of the movie. Did you hear that story about. We'll keep your is on the trees. Top of the Ridge. Bay told you shrapnel what was it well we know knows goes a hairdresser right and he was moaning about the lack of facilities when he wrote to her. She sends him over this hair or smells sweet. Golden Syrup wilcock loves. The smell. Doesn't want to cost around these pike so he slathers it all over his bond goes to sleep and in the middle of the night he wakes up and writes sitting on the shoulder licking the oil off head. We'll come panics jumped. When he does the right by exclaim screened when you talk about how he shot the scene in the river? I assume that was in a tank. No it wasn't it was on. I don't WanNa be too specific nick about this but but basically it was a very impressive Whitewater facility in the north of England. Some of it is real. I mean the water is all real and believe me Georgia's in the water in the freezing cold river and fighting to stay up I mean that was nineteen But some of the the banks are not real and We wanted that. Was I think probably all the sequences is good. You ask by is probably the one we talked about the most because we didn't want to to be on the water itself. We didn't want to be an raft because we felt that when the RAF went up on the actor went down we would lose him constantly. We try getting the water with them. That didn't work. We try being higher than him. That felt like it took us out of the movie. Eventually we found a rig it was it was actually very simple. It was a vehicle driving along the riverside with an all fit that we could. We could swing out and move. According to George was in the water without remaining in exactly the same relationship to him because we also didn't want it to be locked off. Otherwise we could have built a rig that was attached to George and then put the camera on that rig but then the relationship between him and the camera would have always been the same same. So basically we've built a road alongside the water. Technically NAM could boom in and out on a pickle and so we had a wonderful camera car driver. Who did the run at the end of the film? Brian and the the group crew fantastic grip crews so they could stay in sync with the actors and the camera.

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

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

"There's there's just so amazing now now that i have like the this the understanding that i developed after getting so into the big lebowski that it <hes> it really opened my eyes to all of their stuff and it's really hard to. I don't have as much of the film languages tommy what i just really enjoy watching them. Throw something out there real quick quick. They work with a guy named roger deakins. Go for it well. I was just gonna say they always they essentially always roger deakins the thing the other thing about coen brothers movies is they're also beautiful and he has been nominated for so many oscars and finally only one this last year two thousand eighteen for blade runner twenty nine. I'm twenty two thousand eighteen right on all you got the twentieth talking but it's just so amazing to just even if you just watch the films <hes> with the sound off and you're not really paying attention to the story just paying attention to how it looks so go ahead the fighting about roger deakins. He's not all about like <music>. I'm making every frame beautiful. He said that in the interview he's like that's not my job. My job is to tell the story if he happens to that he had so. Here's what that was gonna. Save roger deakins is he has a way we've spoke a lot about dialogue in this episode and he has a specific way that he and the cohen's shoot dialogue and what you would typically do in a film when you're shooting in two person seem say table talking. You'll put the camera over someone's shoulder. You'll get them to kind of dirty the frame and you'll get the person who's speaking dirty the framing ah yes sorry you'll get you'll get their shoulder and the back of their head in the frame and you see the other person talking and you get oh. They're talking to that person what the coen brothers and what deacon especially likes to do is instead instead of a standard lens. He likes to switch it to a wide angle and put it in between them. He likes to live within the scene within the the conversation as opposed outside it because it gives you a different perspective perspective and different feeling a different under your more present in the conversation that way. I took that from oh him for half a glass did you. I did it over your shoulder over danish older and then at the her last dialogue. I put it inside her yeah because it allows again. It's allowing you to be pay attention now child. This is the point where the story is going to turn now because think about cohen brothers they in terms of dialogue a lot of the dialect to me and my essence is very nonsensical. No one's human beings yeah. I wanna just finish that point. The reason <hes> beyond that is if you pay hey attention the reason like to use a wide angle lens is there set dressings very intentional and the reason they use a wide angle is there are things in the background of whatever character is speaking if if they're in their office or whatever that tell you exactly everything you need to know about who's talking even if it's just a side character <hes> there's <hes> forget exactly what i think it's in fargo fargo but everything behind on william h macy's desk is always in framed the first time you see him so that you know exactly what kind of person he is <music>. I think it's just a really unique. Take on it and it really brings. Those dialogues seems to like and you have actors within these movies that you. I think that you get to see a new side of them a different side right. Oh yeah what you're used to yeah. I mean george clooney seeing his humor assize side. I mean brad pitt <hes> jeff bridges. I mean i just i can love jeff. Bridges coaches even jeff bridges from big lebowski to jeff bridges in true grit uh-huh. Yes so it's it's very i just really enjoy enjoy watching their movies now with a with a different understanding..

"Probably there's also a villain and aerial dragon fights and the usual animated buffoonery, but what's really captivating? Here is the wordless stuff. The dragon play in which toothless tries to impress. This sleep feline siren in the woods by doing the world's most awkward courtship dance. If the boy in dragon training bits in the first movie were Omar just two scenes in the black stallion. These sequences are like something out of born free. Puppy dragon, wooing his kitten ish girlfriend, actually, she is kind of lion. Fish and learning from her about the call of the wild. The learning part has always been central in this series hiccups learning to in earlier installments, he lost a parent and a limb. Now, he's confronting the possibility that he may also lose his best friend. You do know my leg isn't a chew toy. Don't you? Be lessons are accompanied by impressive animated images water that looks persuasively wet glaciers that pick up atmospheric pinks and yellows scenes where foreground figures in a dark tent are backed by a bright sunlit field grim. Oh, the grizzly famous back where I'm from a small dragon hunter I ever met. This bit looked so much like a scene from Ben Hur. You can almost forget you're watching animation. Presumably that's because cinematographer Roger Deakins returns as visual. Consultant the man responsible for the look of no country for old men and the double o seven movies sky fall this time, he's helping the animators harnessed technology light years ahead of the first dragon training movie. And he's allowed dean DuBois the writer director of the series to envision the maturing of his characters with both realism and real feeling when hiccup sees that. What's best for his dragon toothless has to take precedence over what's best for his relationship with toothless? Well, let's just say that as the how to train your dragon trilogy drew to its satisfying close. If there was a dry eye.

"Knowing that this was the third part of the trilogy that sequence was designed to be, you know, a book end to what we call forbidden friendship, the sequence that you're referring to the first film in that we have two characters that are getting to know each other on an isolated beach. And in this case with the additional third wheel element of hiccup in the in the bushes. Like, you know, like it Cyrano Cyrano Berge back. We we wanted to to be polluted by his time spent with humans, not only the last night fury. So therefore, he hasn't had siblings and parents to teach him the ways of fury's, but he's been living in a domesticated way with hiccup for for a while now. So when called upon he's a bumbling idiot in terms of courtship and light fury. By contrast is is pure. She comes from the hidden world. She's not the last of her kind. She's been surrounded by dragons and her only interactions with humans have been negative as me. Early on in the film. So it felt like a nice setup to a comedic scene that would rely entirely on pantomime and John Powell's music. I I remember when I was watching the first film for the first time being so so struck by the the flight sequences, the exhilaration that the speed the gravity of them. And the danger is well, you have that moment where where hiccup he becomes untethered from from toothless, and he's and he's folding, and you don't know if they're gonna go in time. What was it? Like developing those sequences, and you mentioned before Roger deacons cinematographer who has been putting involved a believable three fins has. And y was he did he help you out with those sequences how did he contribute to to these films? Well, I part of your question. It was just such a thrill for Chris Anderson. I on that first film to play in the world of CG animation. We come from hand-drawn animation background where there were many, limitations. In terms of what we could do with the camera. How dynamic we could be and suddenly we had this new tool in the box that we were just having a great giddy time playing with so designing action sequences and kind of visceral Connectik thrill rides on the backs of dragon was just it was it not only was delivering on the premise of a movie with dragons. But it was a new tool in our hands. And we're having a great time with it trying. To make it as I guess immersive and visceral as possible, and then Roger deacons who brought into the mix because we wanted. We wanted more conversation between the team that was creating the camera moves and compositions with the team that was actually lighting those shots down the road. They're separated by months in the pipeline. And we wanted a little more communication. So we brought in Roger Deakins to to help bridge that bond, but he actually ended up joining the production as a full-time consultant which was great because he was influencing decisions right up at the front in terms of the palate an atmosphere and kind of inspirational reference for the the sequences the movie all the way through to the final lit shots. And that that meant that he waited on a lot of the camera decisions as well..
