I mean, as we heard in that introduction, this is that rare article or group of articles that sparked a movement. And we're still in it. It changed the world.

And I think this movie does both. It's superbly entertaining, and I think will

"There is one shot of Carrie Mulligan and Zoe Kazan striding through the newsroom. And I had like a physical reaction of excitement to that. I was like, oh, we did it. And if anything, I wanted more of watching them powerfully walk through various newsrooms, being like, we need to get it to print or whatever. You know, all of the cliches. So that really worked for me. And as I think an example of some of the pretty deaf ways that this movie turns what is basically a bunch of phone calls and some papers in a movie because it really just was like calling people and then maybe having lunch and then calling some more people. That's it. That's what journalism is. Then, but then in this story, as we know from the book, these amazing personal encounters. Yes. Which often involved again, I don't know how much we want to reveal here, but flying across the world. Yes. To talk to people and sit down with them and look them in the eye and say, can we talk about this and extraordinarily painful subject? I think it's worth focusing on that a little bit too, because there are some, as I said, some real-life people who participate, and then there are people who are rendered by actors who were significant in cracking the story, there's two sort of set piece moments. These are almost like the action scenes for this movie. One is a journey to visit a character played by Samantha Morton in which Zoe Kazan's character has a sort of lunch with her that is this revelatory moment. And then there's a second that is a sort of a long tail about a woman who worked from your max many years ago as played by Jennifer ehle and then this sort of pursuit of her story. I had been forewarned that these were like the best things about the movie and usually when someone says something like that to me, I go in and I'm usually a little harder on them and I still walk away feeling like they were the best things in the movie. What did you think? Absolutely. The Samantha Morton scene in particular because it has the benefit of going first. And it's pretty simple. Just closes in on her giving an incredible monologue for four minutes, I think, just about her experience, or the character's experience, how it made her feel, why she was deciding to do this. It hits all the notes of exposition, and even Brian to your point, there is some stuff about the documents, woven in, and why would you need these documents and where did they come from? And I think she explains NDAs for a while, but it never feels like you're being fed your vegetables. It's completely compelling. And then Jennifer ehle is sort of the emotional other heart of the film. I mean, there are many of those, but she plays a woman who is recovering from breast cancer. As she is making the decision to participate in the story and she gets another scene, I guess it's in Cornwall I want to say. And it does seem like they filmed at least by the season. On location. You know, on location, which makes a big difference again. Thank you for leaving your rooms. And it's also really beautiful. So I think whoever said that was right. Those kind of performances do stand out. Absolutely great. And what it does is it pops us out of this story of these hardworking and very heroic journalists, which of course we're grooving on because we are journalists. And reminds us, oh wow, here are the people that experienced these events.

"Women to tell you what had happened to them? A case I made was, I can't change what happened to you in the past. But together, we may be able to help protect other people. The truth, basically. I don't know who we think we are at the movies, already talked about four films, two more, left to go, Josh. Look at this. Carey Mulligan and Zoe xan in the trailer for she said, directed by Maria Schrader. Mulligan and kazaam play in New York Times reporters, Megan toe and Jodie Cantor, who wrote the story that helped launch the me too movement and shed light on decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood. She said appears to be made in the same spirit of great journalism movies like the best picture winning spotlight. And maybe the best movie ever made Josh all the president's men are these fair or unfair points of comparison. Well, they're totally unfair. I mean, yeah, I'm not that high and all the president's men, but you know I adore it. We've revisited it together on the show and spotlight was one of the best films of its year. I don't think that's the case here. And I think it's, you know, it's a good movie that I liked, but I think it falls short, particularly in comparison to those two because I do find the reporting scenes, the newsroom scenes to be the weak points for a long time, this movie feels like it's just a dramatized summary of those articles. There are a lot of scenes of Mulligan and Kazan kind of just describing what happened, rehashing the news, and then talking to their editors about what they're planning to do, what they've already done. And it feels very much like a catch up the audience to make sure the audience knows what's happening here. It's also kind of strangely structured just cinematically. A lot of these scenes are really brief and it honestly felt like a news story, you know, like succinct paragraphs like you got this, then we're gonna give you this, then we're gonna give you this. Once the movie settles down, I think it finds a way to be unique and it also finds and makes space for some really good performances. So once the reporters get out there and start interviewing two women in particular, they interview played by Samantha Morton and Jennifer ehle. They get scenes where there's room to breathe. They share their stories and you begin to feel the weight of the terror and just the human cost of Weinstein's raid. And I think that's where she said begins to open up. I also think Schrader does something interesting and maybe this is in the script. As well, a lot of the scenes in these later better moments are set against domestic backdrops or just backdrops that emphasize that these two women reporters have a lot of stuff going on as well at home. So Cantor takes a very important call while she's making her kids school lunches. Tui, you recognize we learn a little bit about her having just had a child and she's been in the throes of postpartum depression. She kind of grabs onto this assignment, like a life raft. And even going back to the character that Ellie plays, this former assistant, she decides that I am going to share my story again, risk myself just before she's undergoing a mastectomy. So what I think all of that does is really bring another nuanced view on the fact that these women are dealing with a psychic weight of Weinstein while also just trying to make it through everyday life and everyday life that is particularly difficult for them as women because of the societal structures they have to deal with. So they're dealing with this one thing while always dealing with something else that a lot of the men just don't have to. I think that makes she said distinct in terms of this journalistic procedural and helps it to stand apart. It takes a little while for the movie to get into that gear, but when it does, I found it to be pretty compelling. Yeah, unfortunately, I wasn't able to get to the screening in advance of its release as you were Josh but I'm eager to see she said, which is currently playing now in wide release. We'd love to hear your thoughts if you get a chance to see it as well. Feedback at film spotting .NET. We're going to wrap up with a quick plug for another new documentary when I had a chance to catch up with called love Charlie, the rise and fall of chef Charlie trotter. That opens in limited release. This weekend, it's directed by Rebecca halpern. And you know me, Josh, documentaries are my thing if I have 90 minutes to kill or two hours to kill. And there's a new Doc I can watch, especially if it's about a great artist, a great influencer. And I mean that in the traditional sense, even more specifically, if it's about an artist, I know of, but no relatively little about. I'm going to be interested. And I definitely only knew of Charlie trotter. I'm curious to hear if you have any more of a relationship to trotter being from Chicago your entire life. But I think my first exposure to him probably came around the time I moved here to the city in the early 2000s and I read some interview. I saw something with Stephen King, the horror writer Stephen King. And he just kind of mentioned in passing, they asked him what he was doing for his birthday, and he said something like, I'm doing what I do every birthday. I'm blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, and having dinner with my wife at Charlie trotters. And I've been looking for this interview and I can't find it anywhere. But

"It's the evening of May 17th, 1974. In a motel room in Anaheim, California, Patricia Hearst is sitting on a carpet watching the news. In a live broadcast, armed police officers in Los Angeles are swarming a residential neighborhood. A small yellow house is burning to the ground, and as billows a smoke drift into the sky, one of the TV commentators asks the question that seems to be on everyone's mind, has Patricia Hearst just died. Her sits up, disoriented by the surreal turn of events. Only minutes ago, the core members of the symbionese Liberation Army got in a shootout with Los Angeles Police. The two sides exchanged thousands of rounds. It was a chaotic battle with seemingly no end inside. What the fight took a turn when the SLA's house suddenly burst into flames, drawing into a raging inferno. Hearst and two SLA members, Bill and Emily Harris, sat watching the violent spectacle on TV. And no one had to say what they were all thinking. Their comrades weren't going to survive. In the motel room, Hearst continues watching the coverage, her eyes glossy, and blank. She knows she's at least partly responsible for the horrifying deaths they've just watched on live TV. The deaths of people like cujo, Jelena, and sin Q M tume, the leader of the SLA. Just yesterday, Hearst was waiting in a van when Bill Harris tried to shoplift from a sporting goods store. He was caught in the act, but instead of letting him get arrested, Hearst pulled out a submachine gun and began firing at the store. The stunt broke up the scene and Hurst and the Harris went on the run. They didn't dare return to the SLA safe house, and endanger the others, but despite their efforts, they couldn't stop the police from tracking down several members of the group. The police descended on the SLA's house and soon TV journalists had their cameras rolling as the SLA opened fire on the police, leading to a long shootout, and ablaze, the seems to have taken everyone's lives. The death and destruction have left Hearst feeling sick with remorse for her role in the tragedy. She was never exactly a consenting member of the group. She had only joined after the SLA kidnapped her and kept her trapped in a dark closet, threatening to kill her. Still, for months now, these political radicals have been her entire world. It seems her mother and father gave up trying to rescue her. And the FBI wants to prosecute Hearst for taking part in the SLA's bank robbery, and although the SLA had initially dressed her up in combat fatigues, imposed her for photos like a prop. They also fed her housed her and trained her to defend herself. They were her kidnappers, but she had also become their comrade. Or at least she used to have that feeling. The core members of the group are now likely dead, and hers doesn't know what's going to happen. What she and the other two remaining members should do, or whether this is the end of the SLA, and the beginning of a new chapter for Hearst. Hearst looks over at Bill Harris, who still gazing at the TV. Sin Q warned about this, weren't about what? He said the biggest threat to my life wasn't the SLA. It was the police. I guess he was right. Yeah, of course he was right. It doesn't matter if your last name is Hearst. If you were in that house, you would have gone down with them. They don't care. The negotiators, they didn't say come out with Patty Hearst will take you home. They would have killed me if they had the chance. Of course they would. It was just dumb luck you were sitting here in a motel. Well, I'm tired of sitting around in motel. Oh, yeah? What do you want to do? The cops, the FBI. They're all still looking for us. Hearst gets up and begins pacing. Let's get back to LA. Do a search and destroy mission on the cops. You want to go up against the LAPD. The three of us, if we're going to go out, let's go out in a blaze of glory. Cops have to pay. Harris, like many SLA members, has wondered if Hearst has only been playing the part of a violent radical, making it seem like she's ready to fight. Her fury now is clearly not entirely an act. But still, Harris doesn't seem convinced. No, we're not going up against the cops. Why not? Because what is it going to accomplish? We're fighting a war. Yeah, but we're not just at war with the police. We're fighting oppression. Pollution, capitalism, poverty, and shooting cops right now isn't going to accomplish anything on those fronts. Look, if you're scared, go ahead and say it. I'll be honest, I'm scared. But I'm still ready to fight. Now, come on. Hearst heads over to a nightstand and grabs the car keys, but Aristotle. Now you realize I'm the leader here. I was next in line after sin Q. Oh, you may think you're in charge, but have you ever fired a gun at someone? Because I have. As your leader, I'm telling you to stand down. This isn't the time to be cautious. Let me be clear if I have to use a gun I will stand down. That's an order stand down. Okay. Okay. Hearst takes a seat in an armchair and tries to calm herself. To let go of the rage that's now coursing through her. Hearst never set out to be a radical activist. That role was forced on her after weeks spent in isolation, just trying to survive. But hers can feel that something inside her has shifted. Perhaps it's a political awakening. A dawning understanding of the world and all its horrors in inequities. A commitment to a cause bigger than herself, and a recognition that she can never go back. Not back to her friends or family, or her old life.

"samantha morton" Discussed on American Scandal
"It's February 4th, 1974. It's a sleepy Monday night in Berkeley, California, and Patricia Hearst is curled up on a couch watching an episode of Mission Impossible on TV. Hearst yawns, and she turns over on the sofa, letting her slippers dangle from the edge for toes. Hearst is 19 years old. She's 5 foot two, petite, with brown hair and bangs. As an undergrad at UC Berkeley, spending an evening watching lowbrow TV isn't exactly her idea of an exciting time. But it's not that bad. At least she has company. Over on the other side of the couch, her fiance is lounging back with a book in his lap. Steve weed is a Shaggy but handsome 26 year old with wire rimmed glasses. He's a philosophy grad student at UC Berkeley, the kind of guy who seems to understand how things really work. And that's a big part of why Hearst was drawn to him. She comes from a wealthy family, family with one of those names like the kennedys or the rockefellers. Her grandfather, William Randolph Hearst, founded a media empire with a chain of newspapers that helped define America. He was an extraordinarily wealthy man, and he even served as inspiration for the main character and Citizen Kane, the classic Hollywood film. Hearst knows that her grandfather's legacy is worth celebrating. But in recent years, she's grown increasingly disillusioned with her family. She sees them as stuffy and bourgeois, and she's wanted to get away from all the trappings of their wealth. Studying art history at Berkeley and running away with an older man, a pot smoking intellectual at that, seemed like her best chance to embrace a liberal life. Once she could lead on her own terms. But tonight, sitting on the couch in her living room, hers gets a sinking feeling of doubt. Somehow she's found herself stuck in a routine of suffocating domesticity. Cooking, cleaning, catering to her fiance's needs. This wasn't how things were supposed to turn out. Hearst wasn't supposed to become a housewife. But hers tries to set aside those thoughts. She turns her attention back to the TV. The show continues predictably when there's an urgent knock on the front door. Hurst and weed share a glance. It's late, they're not expecting any visitors. So weed gets up with Hearst trailing behind. When he opens the door, they find a young woman outside looking agitated. Hi, I'm sorry. This is embarrassing. I just backed up and I guess I hit someone's car in the garage. Earth glares at the woman, which car, an MG, a blue sports car, I'm sorry, I'm not sure. It was darn. Well, if it was an MG, that was my car. I'm sorry. I don't know. Can I just come in and use your phone? Well, hang on a second. I'll grab some paper and a pen. You can write down your information and then we'll start making calls. Hearst begins making her way to the kitchen. But with her back turned, she hears a sudden commotion behind her. Her spins around and sees two men have burst into the apartment. They're wearing masks and carrying guns. And the woman from the doorway is now holding a pistol herself and racing toward Hearst. The woman storms forward and suddenly shoves her to the ground. Keep quiet and no one gets hurt. Please don't do this. I won't call the cops. I swear. I said get quiet. The intruders began rifling through the apartment, and Hearst looks over at her fiance, silently pleading for him to do something. Anything. We gives a subtle nod. And as one of the men comes out of the bedroom, he rushes at him, hands outstretched. The man is quicker and hits weed in the face, sending him staggering into the hallway. Leaning against a wall, weed wipes his nose. Look, look, take my wallet. Take anything you want. Just leave us alone. Hearst is about to call out to join her fiance and his plea for mercy, but she notices a strange look on his face. Before she can stop him, we turns and flees out the back door, leaving her alone with the intruders. Earth lies on the ground stunned. As the young woman leans down with a look of menace, when now it's just you, me and my Friends, isn't it? What do you want? Where is it? Where's the safe? We don't have one? I'm not screwing around. Where do you keep your safe? I'm telling you the truth. We don't have what the hell do you not have a safe? You're a Hearst. Hearst continues to plead what the woman has had enough. She shoves a piece of cloth into Hearst's mouth gagging her. Then she wraps a blindfold over her size and binds her hands with rope. Hearst is yanked her feet and dragged out of the apartment. With her eyes covered, she can't see a thing. She only feels the cool night air on her skin, and here's the sound of a car's trunk popping open. Hers doesn't understand what's going on. Why her fiance fled? Why these three broke into her apartment? But then she realizes, with those three words, you're a Hearst. They know who she is. And it's at that moment the truth dawns on her. This isn't just a simple robbery. This is a kidnapping and Patricia Hearst is the target. American scandal is sponsored by audible. If you're like most adults, you have chores to do.

"But he left her and her mother, played by an uncharacteristically tenney pinched looking Samantha Morton. When Ellie was just 8, and neither have forgiven him, especially because he left them for a man, the love of his life, who has since died. Another character, a fresh faced door to door missionary, played by ty simpkins, has a tenuous connection to the circumstances that caused the death of Charlie's partner. All of these people converge on Charlie's cramped apartment, just as he's enduring, or hanging on to, his last days of life. Charlie's grief, and what he sees as the mistakes he's made in his life have filled him with anxiety and guilt, and the only way he can cope with those feelings is to eat his way through them. Even past the point where he knows his excessive weight is killing him. His compulsion is a kind of suicide pact. He's made with himself, and he's locked in a tricky cycle, his increasing weight seems to have made him more depressed, and, less able to cope a condition he self medicates by eating. The movie's title is a reference to Moby dick. The subject of an essay Charlie loves and returns to again and again for comfort. The point of Fraser's performance, though, is to see the person as opposed to just the body. Ellie is, as her mother correctly notes at one point a truly awful teenager, though her father sees only her intelligence and honesty. He keeps using the adjective amazing to describe her, and the more he uses it, the more we almost believe it, though her behavior keeps reinforcing our initial impression, at one point, she demands that her father stand up and walk to her unassisted, a seemingly simple task that's completely beyond him. It's horrifying when he barrels to the floor. Charlie is a bit of a pushover, too eager to see the good in others, even as he's unable to acknowledge his own Sterling qualities. Early in the film, Liz tells Charlie, he'll die of congestive heart failure within days if he doesn't seek treatment, which he of course refuses to do. The mechanics of this story demand that others must be redeemed, even if it's too late for Charlie to save himself. You can predict the essence of the film's ending, if not its specifics, very early on. But Frazier, always a wonderful actor, and one who hasn't had the career he deserves, defies the predictability of the movie's arc. He shows us Charlie's self pity and allows it to be annoying. There are so many ways in which this guy is just a drag to be around. His self destruction is at least partly entwined with his self centeredness. Fraser doesn't just give us permission to feel exasperation for this character. He guides us right to those feelings. And yet, to look into his eyes, is to see a person who's willing himself to die, even as he wishes he had the will to live. I'm not sure it's possible to watch this flawed film, which grooves to self indulgently on its own gloomy vibe and not wish you could reach out to Charlie, to find the right thing to say. To help without rendering judgment. And almost seems as if Charlie and his kindness is comforting us for our own feelings of futility. But really, that's Frasier at work, not telling us what to feel. But reassuring us that it's okay. To feel.

"Help you. He's in. 1999 eyes wide shut. This is his acting year. That's what she probably should have come out in 1998, but Stanley Kubrick took his time on this one. I think it's amazing, I also think Magnolia is amazing. I realize I have a bit of a Kubrick and PTA problem for my perspective. You don't have to have to find. Okay, so they're both green. Yeah. Don't get don't get in your head about people being like, you guys like social network too much. It's like, it's called taste. Thank you for supporting me. Yeah. Mission Impossible two is not in. No. I will say one of the reasons why I identified this period as like his high water mark is he did cool stuff like higher John whoo to direct a Mission Impossible movie. It didn't work out. Probably a function of the script ultimately, but that's awesome that he did that. It's also awesome that he adapted. Into vanilla sky, a movie that I really like a lot, I do not think it should be in the Hall of Fame, but it's admirable. It is admirable. It's cool. It's an interesting film. They took a big swing. It's something that we don't see as much from him these days. It's a really bold and strange movie. It's disappointing that he and Cameron crow did not continue to work together. I know he produced Elizabethtown. He did. But it would have been cool if they could have come up with something else. Maybe they still will, yeah. I mean, honestly, who better to be writing about living in your 60s? Like those two guys together, let me ask you this. This is 60. Would you, would you watch Jeremy Maguire too? Of course. I would rather watch just like a thinly veiled reimagining of that character than what's Jerry Maguire doing now. But think of it like the color of money. If it was like the hustle and the color of money and he returns to his Eddie felson, like that would that would be really interesting. Obviously he's doing that with Top Gun right now. But Pete Mitchell is not as developed a character. Could be interesting. 2002 minority report, I think this movie is amazing. This movie's fucking great. Now it's cruises that makes it amazing, or is it more about Spielberg? I think it's the total package. He really almost gets this movie grabbed from him by feral a couple times. Yeah. Yeah. And Samantha Morton. Yeah. To me, it's more Spielberg. You know, but again, I am projecting kind of a limited view of Tom Cruise on Tom Cruise. And this is the period where he's doing the fun stuff. I'm going to say yellow for now. What do U.S. news PC magazine and popular science have in common? They all ranked simply safe home security as the best home security of 2021.

Joanna, you're up. All right. I actually don't, okay. I also don't know how to trust anyone on this on this drive. I don't know what your interests are in my interest. So again, I'll just play my heart and say, one of my favorite films of all time, and in the Oscar category, Jim Sheridan's in America. Damn it. This I probably have seen this movie more. Well, after master commander, then it comes to this movie in terms of rewatch from this year. Samantha Morton letting us all know that she can rock no hair at all. We already knew that from minority report, but she's like, yeah, I could do one inch as well. Patty considine, just like churning heroic drama out of the smallest things like bringing an air conditioner home to your family. An incredible Jim on super performance. And yeah, just a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful movie. I openly weep every time that I watch it. And I think it should be more beloved than it is. Two things about this movie. Number one, amazing pick by you. So three things. Amazing pick by you. Number two, I believe Jim Sheridan followed this film up with get rich or die trying the 50 cent movie. Which is an amazing career move. Number three, in 2003, I used to really enjoy reenacting the scene in America where the kid goes up to patty constitution and he's like, you don't play with us and Japan. We're constantly and goes, I do play with you and the kid goes, not like you used to. This movie is why I was convinced until two years ago that patty constitution was an Irish actor. First of all, his name is patty, but second of all, this is my introduction to him and then someone had to email me and let me know that he's English. But yeah, just to the Irish love that too. Maybe really popular. Terrific pick. Jim Sheridan is the Spielberg of many an Irish American household. Okay, I have a pick. Shall we do a brief recap of where we're at? Maybe after Mao makes her next pick, we can recap and see where we stand on everything. It looks like she's like a pause on the turn, you mean? Yeah. A pause on the turn. Sound good? Yeah. She's getting another filibuster ready. Like a pause specific film. Now it's basically set silently since you gave her last speech. Okay, I'm gonna go with comedy, complicated comedy year.
