"The trailer for Neptune frost, directed by anisia uemon and Saul Williams, the afrofuturist film set in Burundi, debuted last summer at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, it played in limited release earlier this summer, and it will be at facets here in Chicago. This weekend, Josh, you just caught up with it, which is great because then you can explain this to me. The plot description has, quote, cosmic forces bringing together an intersex runaway and an escaped minor. And their connection sparking glitches within the greater divine circuitry. I followed no part of that. Please. Elucidate. Yeah, what's confusing to you? What more do you want to know? Let me note about a third of the way through Neptune frost, a character basically says in voice-over, maybe you're asking yourself WTF is this. It's one of those. And I have to say when I heard that, I was so relieved because what it told me was that the bewildering nature of this movie was part of the plan. What you just read, you don't even need to know exactly what all that means, but I think it gives you some sense of the vibe and I will add to that that this is pretty much a musical. You mentioned Saul Williams and it is chock full of original songs. He's had a long career among many other things as a musician. So this is something that could be described as a musical. It is overall an experience and you're awash in the day glo makeup and costume design that's part of this, that incorporates elements like computer chips that are used as jewelry, body art or woven into the costuming, you have some arresting African landscapes and those songs which are incredibly interesting they're angry at sometimes and they're celestial at other times. It feels like a visual album, more than a traditional movie, or even a movie musical, but I don't want to make that sound like it's light, or there's not any substance here, because I think there's a vision of revolution that's really being projected in the music and in these characters. There's a hopefulness to it that an increasingly wired world might allow for a voice to emerge that hasn't been previously heard, this is an extremely poetic effort. I think that's why it does deserve consideration or a nod at least as a golden brick. So I want to go ahead and include it as one of those this year for our annual award for overlooked films from up and coming or new filmmakers. And yeah, it's a lot to take in. I think the less if you're going to go see this, there are also streaming options, or if you're in Chicago at facets, I think worry less about figuring it all out because I looked back at my notes and it was full of question marks. So is he or does that mean she is? And as the movie went on, I stopped asking those. I got a few answers from the film itself. But I did stop asking those in just allowed myself to be immersed by what it was offering. I think that's the best way to enjoy it and then perhaps if you want to dig into the political implications or the messaging or the other things that are going on here, especially in some of the lyrics that will need translation, you can do that later or on a second viewing. But it's definitely worth an initial viewing just for that immersive aesthetic experience. If you can't get to Neptune frost at facets here in Chicago, it is available to rent on Amazon Prime, keynote now, and voodoo, if you do see it, we'd love to hear your thoughts, feedback at film spotting .NET. Busy critic that you are Josh, you also caught up with a new animated film that's getting a limited theatrical release the deer king from directors masashi ando and masayuki Miyagi, both are veterans of Studio Ghibli, working there on films by Hayao Miyazaki, does the film have any of that Miyazaki magic? Yeah, I think princess spotted okay is probably the closest touch point and they both did work on that. They also worked on spirited away. Also among their credits, you'll see things like your name and weathering with you, both of which I liked quite a bit, but it's not enoki that this mirrors because it is a fantasy narrative focuses on another minor actually and enslaved minor who escapes his captors along with a small orphaned girl and then they travel across this land that is under the rule of a colonial power. There's also a disease that's across the land, but it only threatens the invaders, not the people who have always lived there. There's actually politically or at least geopolitically there are a lot of parallels with Neptune frost as I'm describing this, but completely different experience here with the deer king, this also has a rich supporting cast of characters that just makes it a more expansive vision, but it is the animation that is the stand out. You just want to stare at every frame. One of those movies, one of those anime experiences. And I like how the directors and their team also make it in terms of visuals they make it personal. You can see a recurring POV shot that fades out as the eyelids close. But then it also has this vast worldbuilding to it. There is an unseen emperor and you know he's around because these giant balloons that are painted to look like eyeballs. They just ominously loom against the horizon. So there's a nice balance between the personal and again this massive worldbuilding that the movie does. I'll be interested to see how it's received because I could see some folks saying it's too close to something like princess mononoke. But for me, as much as I love that film, to see something that's in the vein, especially having just reviewed what did I say, our 29th MCU movie. You know, I don't feel like this is, this is something that has been exhausted yet, a movie like this. And there's enough idiosyncratic touches from these filmmakers to make it feel unique. You know, one more makes a trend coming soon to film spotting top 5 movie miners. Let's do it. Yes. I'll keep my eye out. The dear king is currently playing in limited release. This week on our sister podcast, the next picture show, I love this pairing. It's part one of their human slash nature pairing genevieve over there at the next picture show is always very intentional. They've got the new Doc fire of love out in limited release and Werner Herzog's grizzly man from 2005. I'm not saying they took my idea at all, but I am saying I approve of this pairing since you may recall when I singled out fire of love is my favorite film of the year so far a month ago. I brought up Werner Herzog's wonderful documentary grizzly man. Yeah, so this one works in your mind. I have yet to see fire of love. It sounds like the perfect pairing to me. The next trick show is hosted by Tasha Robinson Keith vips Scott Tobias and genevieve kasky, new episodes post every Tuesday wherever

"Pandemic hangover type thing or what, but I'm, you know, mildly excited about the Thor, love and thunder. So I'd put that at number 5 for me. The Elvis movie from baz luhrmann, I'm still really intrigued by I know you have your skepticism when it comes to lower men. But Elvis, I'm going to see what I'm going to see what we've got there. Could be interesting. Here's a really under the radar one that popped up only to me on in my research. And it's Neptune frost, which is coming to theaters June 3. I'm just going to read this description from IndieWire Jude dry. Again, writing on IndieWire, the experimental afrofuturist musical from multidisciplinary artist Saul Williams and anasa Yemen defies categorization, which is what makes it so exciting and confounding. Part contemporary operetta part anarchist sci-fi saga, the dream like tale follows a gender shifting soothsayer and an off the grid hacker enclave as they Dodge the ravages of a senseless resource war. So after I've recovered from men, hopefully I will be ready for Neptune frost, which just sounds possibly quite dazzling. Crimes of the future, the new cronenberg, that's my second most anticipated, of course, which we've mentioned, I think, comes out in June, and then Jordan Peele's nope is at the top of my list. Can not wait. Okay. Well, you said anything could be great, and I was all in on that bubbly optimism, Josh. I was going to adopt it. It was going to be my whole new mantra. Not your right movies on life. Really? So struck a chord and then you mentioned baz luhrmann's Elvis and does not hold does not hold. No, I know I can't go there. My top 5, well, I've got a top four and we've mentioned all of them. So I don't really have a lot to add. If I was going just strictly in order of the movies I most want to see, at number four, I'd have the Miller, 3000 years of longing. Number three men, the Alex Garland film, we're going to talk about next week. Number two, or no, it's really number one. Okay, fine. I'm going to go nope at number two. And yeah, damn it. I'm going Top Gun: Maverick at number one. I mean, at this point, you kind of have to. Yeah, I have to. My number 5 might either be the cronenberg though. Oh man, we talked about horror earlier, body horror makes me makes me squirm even more of course. So I'll be watching that with my eyes closed. I am, of course, very curious about the new Claire Denis as well talked about that a little was Steve procope last week as it's playing the Chicago critics film festival here coming up. The music box is called both sides of the blade. All I need to hear is that Juliet bonos is in it, but then Vincent London in it as well so good in teton. Last year, but maybe Josh, I would go with a little more populous choice. I am intrigued by the gray man, July 15th theaters, streaming on Netflix on the 22nd. I'm seeing some things about how it's supposed to be like Netflix's big tentpole movie of the year, their most expensive movie to date, which doesn't usually give me much confidence, but it comes to us from the Russo brothers and really why I'm excited is that it's a spy movie, which I'm usually a sucker for. Starring Ryan Gosling. You throw in Chris Evans and their former assassins or they formerly worked together at the CIA and now they're tracking each other sort of a cat and mouse game. I like those performers a lot. Add in on a day armus, Regé-Jean Page, who many may remember from the first season of Bridgerton. I have a feeling I will be plopping myself down on the couch if not in the theater around July 22nd to see the gray man on Netflix. And I suppose I have one other question. I'll stick in the art house here and I'll give you one more question, which is, am I ready for a Peter Strickland comedy? Peter Strickland. The filmmaker behind barbarian sound studio behind the duke of burgundy. There might be some elements in both of those films you would describe as humorous. I don't know what they would be, but if I remember someone could possibly pick out a few interesting scenes and then he's got a new film out called flux Gourmet, this is the description. Set at an institute devoted to culinary and alimentary performance. A collective finds itself embroiled in power struggles, artistic vendettas, and gastrointestinal disorders. So going to be a little bit of a head scratcher, as you would expect from Strickland, seems like it might make you a little bit uncomfortable at times as we talk about stomach problems in those gastrointestinal disorders. And yet it's supposed to be funny, Josh. Summer blockbuster sounds like stereotypical summer blockbuster to me. Apparently so those are our top 5 summer movie questions. We would love to hear your most anticipated summer movies and the questions you have, you can email us feedback at film spotting .NET. Josh, that's our show.

"That's a special thing certainly sounds like something. We adults could use a big dose of these days in particular So we'll come back to talking about young people. And why right for them. But i would love to hear a little bit more about your personal story starting with like. What were you like as a kid. Were you talking about burgers. Were you talking about big ideas. What was life like for you you know. I was a little bit of everything. I was the kind of kid who loved along time. You know that was the kind of young person who get lost in in his room. We'll get lost in i. I love to sit in. The my mother would be in the kitchen. Doing all sorts of things and i would say a little rocking chair. Just an eye shot and just sit there and watch and you know just kind of talk and we have conversations like six five but at the same time i also grew up with a ton of friends. I was a neighborhood kid and they hood kids do neighborhood things right going and you get into trouble then you you learn the world through trial and error bouncing ideas off your peers When no adults are watching. And so i had all those things working for me and i'm grateful for it fourteen. Now you grew up in maryland right outside of dc. And you know one thing. i.

One thing she she made clear was the hardest part about being a parent.

That is completely fair. Thank you last. Call jeremy from minneapolis. Then we're gonna do some possible damage dot. You'd mentioned week to always a tough week. And as long as i can remember we to always sucks to pick. I took a look at post-season teams. That lost week one and see if there is a trend for them bouncing back. Not quite a gummy nuke But looking at just outright playoff teams bounce back last five seasons ten and five as weld against the spread ten five meaning about the year seventeen. They were in the class last year last week. One so we got washed in cleveland sitting at home we've got the bills on the road colt. Spare you're covered some of the games already but You know so hopefully that little bit. helps with the The week to mess that usually is a jerry. I'm like in washington in the bears and the browns for sure. Jeremy fucking call back in this show anytime. That's that's all. We need the information. We need speaking of thursday night. Football teams three now. Yeah good number shabby fucking how you doing fun out of conversation. We did lose state form. No shame how we doing today. Did you guys see minute to window. I did see what see mid at the window. Last night i did. You did not to baseball baseball. We saw them through. I clean sweep really. We saw that the wind up taking for hit last night. Nick a couple of longest rush mid the over. You had readers in the over corner the raiders. I'm trying to wonder. How many tweets that i put out as bet. Should i count towards my record. You know what i mean like darren all their touchdown lock out didata record and then i'll say i don't think gamblers only as good as record pat. I only tweet out the ones that i want on the record parlay. I'm going to take a lot of shots at those things. And i don't know if i want that affected my five pillars. I'm labor party record because then you then you turn into your doing the units right because you could have one big parlay the whole year. Go ten and fifty but hit a parlay right plus thirty. You know what i mean. So speaking to units tyson did tie saul william. He's a fucking unit guy. He's fast she ratings. Just came out for the monday night. Manning thing this is feels like it's bullshit it feels like it's a work. It's tough. I don't think a lot of people knew about it. Maybe every human. I saw my internet was watching it and i feel like my internet is a pretty vast internet. That's why i feel comfortable talking about a lot of things. Because in the sports world. Because i have people from literally every different background. Everybody was on that shit. I don't this like the nickelodeon. Cbs twenty four people. Watch it. i'm like. I don't think that's accurate. I feel like you know what i mean. What were the ratings. They small small small really small. I mean monday night. Football being on. Abc which is in like. I think that definitely helps in her. But still like. You don't have to have a box game smackdown. A flock soup might have had the the the game on the big tv and then the other one with peyton eli and the sound on. Yeah that i can't beat it. That was the one. That was the one thing i needed because if it ever went to where they weren't showing the gauge you. I had some payton on the computer and sound in the game up on the so. I had because the game was six to seven seconds. Maybe even ten seconds ahead then the peyton won so everybody was kind of forced to do the war in sharp. If you watch smart changing though with this no it will not chance now because there's a lot of bad ratings on stuff that just survive. I mean they're locked into ten games year for the next three years. Is that real. it's awesome let's go to. There's i mean there are at least doing that. And now i think more people know about it. And it's not like people love the main broadcast. So hey we're banging at trump pretty hard. Yeah they got turned on a game a little bit. Let me hear a little bit more peyton. You said you need game on full screen or whatever it's like. I think watching peyton look like al bundy a couple different times back. A guy like upset. Like i think that is what you're the best of both worlds for me would be paying on the broadcast in the stadium by the way. It'd be much different if you could even see subs. Because they have all of the cameras. I think for him. See all the different cameras. Kazan sideline shot. That isn't normally out there as one of the shots that was kind of like Coaches cam coaches film. Oceanside side there but if he was in the stadium and he saw who was seventeen. Who sarah things like that. I think that's why we do watch along. We've gone to watch on. That's kind of a watch along. And i've always said like yeah but can you get in there because if i can see and feel it's a lot different like would that be better or worse. You think if they were in the booth do natural thing. I'm not sure paid and talking. Football is always good. Yes i agree. Football talk last night ray. Lewis was awesome. I saw russell. Wilson was trying kelsey was off also awesome owner but this is also a good thing for greece in the boys. Because no they didn't go to worry about anybody listening to them anymore. Well that's the thing you don't go man. Go listen to this. A star studded cast. Espn two i. i love their. i like that. I won it was nice. 'cause tonight sunday was tough for me. Zero point zero zero dollars in my account. When i woke up on monday morning. It's been a long time. Since i've seen that man longtime that's okay a mandate some back last night and saw window too long season missouri of minute missouri. Thought i might see you at the window thing coming out really and then something in the works. Okay see the window dude. I'll see did you steal l. on anybody or is that just naturally come onto your brain. We were saying it. Got kinda in college when i start first gambling. Pixel no matter what you say. People say you still from some way that somewhere. What do you mean did was that. I created chill lacks fucking. Did do a you a chill and then all of a sudden i go to soccer tournament and like virginia beach or whatever and somebody said i'm like i can't believe my word made it all the way down here very absolutely you see at the window. I think is going to be tough. Weekdays going gonna be fun all right so packers beat the lines. But whatever k-. I tend to agree. It's all god really. I would like for it to get below ten. I don't think it's going to happen. I love the courts we were talking about that you love the rams zoologists called in playoff teams teams. That made the playoffs the year before and then lost week. One are in the last five years ten and five against spread in week two pretty good. They're seven of those teams this weekend coach or one of them football team packers bears broad colts bills.

Who cou could have felt confident that this would just lead to their next think i came on otherwise extremely excited in very very Passionate to do do the best job can possibly do and I was just so in awe of the people they had already had on the cast. Starting first a window. Pearson sony song i had just seen i was. I was like obsessed with her performance opposite saul williams within this movie called slam. You know so see her would harris.

Stick up crew. And they're about to go meet up with another dude called bailey. Who's in the crew in this scene. This is from the fifth episode of the first season.

Koa gun talk like that man. F this and f that give it up. But i mean to say nobody wants to hear them dirty words by especially conflict such a beautiful now belly. Catch the doll. I i heard that that wasn't in the script. No no it was not yeah There was a lot of newness on on the senate of wire a lot of you know. First timers like myself and know so many characters and personalities and story lines to manage on a new show with minimal. You know minimal dollars. They didn't roll out the red carpet. Fuss over there in baltimore on wire so we had to make dune and and it was no room for error in a but so we kept the director comey with keep things kind of like you just trying to get through it man of so much to manage and i was like i forget which episode Wait a minute said a canine. Sign up to play a gay character a node out. I don't have to act feminine. I said but you know those. The thing should be some more happening. His should be night. Is when real show here right so we gotta keep it poppin. So i went to more on our coast. Marcos at the time Michael has also. Michael played brandon as they might. I think you gotta step it up. Say they got us doing this holding hands and rubbing lipson planning your hair We gotta light could bring it. He says what he's just. Redo acid your. I think we should lock lips in this in the scene right here. He said what is. Not as i said i know i said i think we know really be feels right in the scene right now. He's all right when you going to do it. I started to tell him he's a don't tell me 'cause i might freeze up when it was coming. Just just just just pulling for it to go for. I got you by clock. Was directing particular episode called. Is imf rehearsal run the lines and he was still doing some giving some direction do something with the lighting or the camera. Whatever and he heard the kiss turned around looked at us. He said we'll stop the work run. That seen again did it. 'cause he looked at me. Look read the script. He said you'll put that in there. I said we put that in there not Brave and i know from that point on. They started calling started calling. Aw michael k williams to the set up the can I set the tone set. It up you know there are. There are a few characters that people are more fascinated by or identify with more on the wire and there are not a lot of shows. They're still not a lot of shows that treat the kind of situations and people that are on the wire with respect the wire did and i think it really was you know it was really resonant for a lot of people for that reason so your character was the the baddest of the bad on this show and also really sweet and you know touching character and was also gay and.

"Teak. Believe it or not, That's a guitar solo guitar that you just heard, But it has this Wooden bridge placed underneath the strings midway up the fingerboard of the instruments so that she can hammer the strings and play the instrument like a dulcimer or a zither. From her album, Modern Yesterday's We also heard from Sam and Madan and his version of the folk song Maggie, also known as Little Maggie or Little Margaret. From his self titled record. Both of those albums well into My Top 10 for 2020 on Obviously, there were no new sounds live concerts last year, either it Merkin Hall or at Brookfield Place, but we did shoot two evenings of live music in the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place. In the latter part of the year and they will be streaming at the end of this month. One of them is khaki King and fellow guitarist Jasmine Williams and the two of them separately and playing together for the first time. The other was so percussion with various guests. And those will be streaming live at the Brookfield Place website on January 27th in January. 28th. They are absolutely worth seeing. They did a great job setting up Space for us and s O like I say, definitely worth seeing as well as hearing. Okay, let's get into the top half of my top 10, number five Ted Hearne and his oratorio called Place. Um, Ted actually appeared on new sounds couple of years back talking about this piece. It's been in progress for a while. It's a big work. Built on big themes specifically gentrification, But you can't talk about gentrification without talking about displacement and inequality. Ted worked with the writer Saul Williams and a diverse cast. The album came out in April. It has been nominated for a Grammy, but He also did a digital at home version of the piece, which we premiered in the green space virtually, and it just really brought home some of the ideas in the peace because at 1.1 of the cast members finds an eviction notice on her door. In the middle of this piece. This excerpt colonizing space makes really clever Use of SciFi imagery to suggest How it feels to be forced to move out. Or maybe how it feels to be. Ah, colonizing force from.
