"Classic TV actor John C mcginley, of course, the late Fred Thompson. I'm Natasha Richardson's Annette. I mean, if you look in the way down in the cast, you will notice there's a gentleman named Clark Gregg, who has become a bit of a superstar in the last decade or so. Thanks to his role as agent Coulson, right? Agent Phil Coulson from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and from pages of shield. So yeah, he's got a relatively small part. The film was directed by Roland joffe, Roland jaffe is probably most well-known for the film. The 1984 Oscar winning film, the killing fields. Which is a very, very, very good movie about the Khmer Rouge killings in Cambodia and. Cambodian refugee was awarded best actor for the film. Our best sporting actor. Bruce Robinson is the writer. He's a British actor and screenwriter and he directed whitnall and I. He also wrote extensively with Joffrey, Joffrey also did a really good movie set in South America and Jesuit missionaries called the mission about. I love that movie and I used to have the soundtrack on CD great soundtrack. It's a really, really, really good movie. I mean, he had three movies that were back to back to the killing fields and the mission. Killing people just really a well received and popular film. Mission is critically well received. It wasn't a huge financial success. But this one, it was not that great a success. I think the problem is, is it kind of plays like a TV movie? Yeah, I would agree with that, definitely. It has a budget of $30 million in it only made $3 million at the box office. So I'm not sure what the dislike of the film. I think it's mostly that it's like, it seems to play a little lower than the pedigree of the actors of the director and the writer. Really more than anything. I know they got a lot of criticism for casting Dwight Schultz is up timer. But I liked white Schultz. I think these does a really good job in this film. And David sure thing or someone like that probably could have played him or even, I don't know, Peter coyote or a bigger star like Peter coyote or John Malkovich. But the bottom line is, is I think he does a good job. So I think it also gets some criticism for both dramatic dramatizing some history. John Cusack character, I think, is based on a real person, but he's not the real person. Yeah, he's kind of a mashup of a couple of guys, I believe.

"No director ever says. Anything like that ever. It doesn't matter. I don't know whether it was you or me or all of us, but we'll just shoot it again. And that's another thing that no director says. So right. Well, the last movie that I'm going to bring up for a while is one that is one of my true favorites, and I know for a lot of people, a lot of people feel this way. And that is from 1984, the killing fields. And I think it was Roland jaffe's first movie as a director, right? He had directed for television, but he had never directed a feature. So just to remind people, if they haven't seen it, you're playing this New York Times reporter, Sidney schenberg, opposite his Cambodian assistant, played by, I don't know if I hope I pronounce it correctly. Nor who was an ultimately won the Oscar for that. This is a movie that you've called life-changing. I know you got a best actor Oscar nomination for it, which is a tremendous thing, and it's a great movie, but I wonder what made it life-changing for you. Well, people who have seen the movie probably answer that question themselves because the movie really does speak pretty directly to what the experience that we all had making it was alike. It was searing, there were a lot of hang noor was not the only Cambodian involved in the movie. And it felt extremely personal to people who were involved. And then we were the movie was opening in the United States when I was touring around doing publicity and I was in Boston and two women, both named Susan. Came up to me, one of them very tall and the other one almost comically very short. And said, now that you know, what are you going to do about it? And they recruited me to join refugees international, which they both worked with. And one of them was really the founder of it..

"Not often here on film spotting, we get to talk about movies that feature clever crustaceans. Josh, but that's the case with the new the tale of king crab, which is about Luciano, who's a wandering outcast in rural 19th century Italy. Alcohol and forbidden love send him into turmoil. And after a tragedy, he is exiled to the distant Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego, where with the help of ruthless gold diggers and that clever crustacean. He searches for a mythical treasure on his way toward redemption and we have not seen this film yet, Josh, but in terms of the movies that it bears resemblance to. Some films that are pretty notable and appreciated by us, including lucretia martell's zama, reviewed here on the show and one of my favorites. It's a film that had some stiff competition, I think, in round one of film spotting madness, Werner Herzog's agera, the wrath of God. Yeah, aguirre mentioned so many times on the show clearly a favorite of ours. Another title that's been thrown out there that is somewhat in the same vein of the tale of king crab is Roland jaffe is the mission. I love the mission. And zama, you're so right. I think in 2018, I forget exactly where it landed, but lucretia martell zama, Adam, was on my top ten lists. So impressive company there for this film to be compared to. Yeah. Absolutely. Our friends at IndieWire call it part Herzog and ecstatic ethnography and part puzzle linen picaresque well done IndieWire and the international cinephile society says an atmospheric masterpiece, an unforgettable chronicle of humanity. You can see the tale of king crab now presented by oscilloscope, the can in New York film theft's favorite, opened April 15th at film at Lincoln Center for tickets, visit film link dot com C dot com.
