Rudy Giuliani: Watch the Film 'Taxi Driver'
"Because there you go. At the end at the end of my administration, I did a couple of retrospectives on the administration. So I would show the scenes and taxi driver of the assassin driving through Times Square. Those were real scenes shut in like 1970, whenever it was 76, 77, 78. This is Scorsese. Brilliant, I'm sorry. Scorsese film, obviously. But De Niro playing that's before we knew De Niro actually was crazy. If you did a good job of acting crazy well, you're looking at me, you're looking at me. So you look at those scenes, there are about four or 5 of them in which you get a big panorama of Times Square. And then you just put it against current ones. That would have been 98, 99, 2000. And one, you see drug dealers prostitutes horrible looking people frightening as hell, drug dens, houses of prostitution, the legitimate, if you call them legitimate pornographic movie theaters where you would pay just go in and watch a movie, had all disappeared. It was too dangerous for them. The movie theaters had turned into actual brothels. So even the porn industry didn't feel it was worth investing in the pornography had moved to other parts of the city because it was too dangerous to have it in Times Square. It had crime rates that were almost impossible to keep up because they would take bodies and hide them. And literally, literally, on one day during the middle of my campaign, we were driving somewhere. I told them to stop the car, I got out in the middle of the street and my campaign manager Peter powers thought I was nuts to traffic was going back to back and forth. And I said a little prayer, and I said, if I do one thing is mayor, I'm going to change this
Section 230: The Law That Made It Possible for Facebook and Twitter to Thrive
"Thing that actually made it possible for companies like facebook or twitter or youtube to exist and grow with something called section two thirty of the communications decency act which was passed into law in nineteen ninety six so what problem was section to thirty designed to fix the reasons extra to thirty even came to be was because they were to lower court decisions that held two opposite things k.

Rumor ville published some disparaging remarks about arrival newsletter. And this is perfect called scuttle but which was owned by cubby inc. In addition to suing rumor ville cubby also sued compuserve alleging that as publisher compuserve was also liable for the statements of its authors and the court in the compuserve case called covey versus compuserve. Said that a third party post on compuserve did not make copies reliable So in other words because compuserve didn't moderate content on its platform it could not be sued for libel that is since compuserve was merely a distributor of defamatory statements. It wasn't responsible got it. So what was the other case. And the other involved. Old online platform called prodigy named the case was stratton oakmont versus prodigy.

Finding the Judas in Judas and the Black Messiah
"The 19 sixties, Fred Hampton was chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party. He was a rising leader, organizing disparate multi racial groups in Chicago. Until police shot and killed him and another Black Panther member in an early morning raid. There's a new movie about Fred Hampton out this week, it is called Judas and the Black Messiah. It's not a question of ball. It's a non violence is a question of resistance to fascism or non existence within fascism Film got rave reviews after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last week. It's the second feature from director Shaka King who, until this project came along, was on the verge of giving up making feature films altogether. MPR's Andrew Lyne bonked takes it from here. Yes, Judas and the Black Messiah is about Fred Hampton and how he led the Black Panthers in Chicago. But it's also about William O'Neill, the man who infiltrated the Black Panthers in spied on Hampton on behalf of the FBI. Shaka King told me that the Lucas Brothers who co wrote the story, sold the idea to him like this. Their pitch that they laid out was we want to make a movie about Fred Hampton and William O'Neal. That's kind of like the departed the 2006 Martin Scorsese movie Inside the World of Cointelpro, or Counterintelligence program, the 19 sixties project where the FBI infiltrated and disrupted groups like the Black Panthers, and I was like I see it. I'm done. I'm in Judas is a tight, intense movie. Yes, like the departed and other Scorsese type crime movies. It's a long way, though, from King's first feature film newly weeds from 2013. So what you got here? Newly weeds tells the story of a young couple in Brooklyn who smoke a lot of weed where Judas is loud and fast. Really? Weeds is quiet and tender. I'm done. I'm done online. Won't want Wanna hang out. We hang up. Yeah. How are we supposed to go to the Galapagos? If you mind the bag every two minutes. It hits similar beats as movies by other indie darling directors like Joe Swanberg or the Duplass Brothers. The film Independent Spirit Awards even gave King the Someone to watch award after it came out, which came with a $25,000 grant. Not bad for someone fresh out of N Y. U film school. But after that initial fanfare, I was so depressed after making newly weeds and my expectations for the release just not coming to fruition. The movie didn't get much attention outside the festival circuit from agents and distributors, largely because it was a movie with black actors who no one knew on at that time that was deemed worthless. The film's release in 2013 wasn't that long ago, but it was just before what a friend of Kings jokingly dubbed. The Black Excellence Industrial Complex. You're Selma's and Moon Lights and Black Panthers when movie studios realized they could make a lot of money by releasing films by and starring black people. Nearly weeds. Loss of momentum burnt king out on the idea of making another feature film, But he did have an idea for a short rolling around in his head. It was kind of silly kind of outrageous, sweetheart. Lips. Excuse me, miss. It's called Moon Yang's after the Italian slur for black people want heard on the streets of Brooklyn in it, King and two others play these three black guys who talk like they're in the mom movies. King has such a fondness for It was somewhat inspired by King's experience growing up in a mostly black part of Brooklyn, but going to high school in South Brooklyn, where everyone the Irish Americans, Greek Americans, Asian Americans, Jewish Americans, all talks like the Italian American kids, and those kids were Hilarious. They were profane. They were quick witted, and we were not friends put like I could appreciate their sense of humor. The movie is a concise examination of race, gender gentrification. As King's character gets into an argument with his sister over a MetroCard, you did not have a dime. Put 1000 until the white guy comes by and says hi to the sister. Hi. How you doing? How are you? You guys just don't know what both outta here. Oh, Polluted the movie is fun and poignant, and the process reminded King how much he loved making movies. That movie saved me. You saved me. I didn't see that or know that about Shaka. But I could understand, and I could see how that could happen. Charles de King, no relation to director Shocking is the CEO and founder of Macro which since its founding in 2015 has produced movies and TV shows featuring non white people, including Judas and the Black Messiah. It was before the oscarssowhite moment. Of 2015. There's a lot that's happened since then. There is much more of an openness and I think an understanding of the business opportunity there. Which brings us to King today, making a movie about an anti capitalist black radical at a very capitalist Hollywood studio without watering down the politics. The deal is to respect the authenticity. Fred Hampton Jr is the current chairman of the Black Panther Party, Cubs and son of Fred Hampton. He says he and the other Panthers had their guards up when they were approached about this film. The Panthers have long been subjected to propaganda campaigns and misrepresentations. But he says King and the rest of the cast and crew definitely navigated the crossroads between their creative goals and the Panthers. Political ones. Well enough, anyway. Revolutionaries never satisfied. You know, I wish there was more political cartoon. We could've pushed. In a certain point, However, I'll put the people's need before before my needs my wants and desires. For instance, the relationship between Fred Hampton and his partner, Deborah Johnson, was a tricky thing to get right. The poet.
"scorsese" Discussed on KCRW
"Talking about the encyclopedic mind of Martin Scorsese with his collaborator friendly Woods, whose new project with Martin Scorsese is pretend it's a city And I guess I just start this part by asking what you thought of public speaking after you finish with that if you thought That you had another one of these in you. I didn't think I mean Marty's yesterday. I thought it was a bad idea. So we didn't do it because even though he's Marty in on that party, he still can't do it. That may so we didn't do it. And I'm not sorry that we didn't do it right away. I'm really not. I didn't want to do it for reasons that are right for May so I don't want to do it. In the intervening 10 years, Marty made a couple movies. Very good ones. So I doubt that he felt the lack. I doubt, you know, I mean, I never actually asked him this question, You know, but it seems, would seem hard for me to believe that Marty was saying, you know, why did I waste my time making silence, which is one of my favorite movies? I could have done another documentary friend. Why did I waste my time doing Wolf of Wall Street? I mean, he did plenty about the things and he let you work with him all for Wall Street. But you're saying it wasn't the right time. Why was it nothing at the right time for you? What was keeping you from? For doing this again because, you know, it just seemed to me like there shouldn't be too movies about the same person. It just didn't seem like as my mother would say Nice. Well, I guess I think about this way because You're not the same person at more than what's the point. New York is not the same city. I mean, it's it's really a zoo much about you reacting to New York as anything else, So if we're saying that, maybe in fact you're the same person. In New York has changed in ways large and small that you're still reacting to win this thing we're talking about in the first half, and it's almost don't know if it's Balzac who said it, But I think about this whenever you talk about New York That wind that love is never so sweet than one of his new and strange and just hearing you talk about with a New York was like with all of its peculiarities and particular qualities. And how hard it was to get to know, But you just give in tow. And eventually it becomes part of you. And that really lands here in this one. Well, I mean, the thing is that, you know, a certain point in your life, which I am not only at, but probably passed. Um, you have what used to be called the long view. You know, so that you can you know you understand certain things about New York, which seems maybe an Impenetrable thing to people, But it feels very intimate way in New York to me feels like a little village. It really does. But not with the bad aspects of a little village. You know, everybody knows you where everybody like, you know. Interferes with your life, but it has It feels very homey to me. Really homey, and I feel very intimate. I I believe that in Manhattan, Not in the rest of your city. Um, you could show me a still photograph of a corner without the street sign. And if it was a big enough you I could tell you where the corner was because I've walked every single inch of the city a billion times. Uh, New York has changed quite a bit. I would say New York has changed more than I had, you know, because I'm a person who basically has just pretty much never changed her mind. So it's really rare that I changed my mind in any significant way. Someone asked me recently. What makes a real New Yorker and I would say A Real New Yorker is anyone who lives in New York. Whether they lived here for two weeks or two years or 50 years, but the first time that person says They closed my section such Or what happened to the That could happen in two weeks, You know, So that's how fast you know someone becomes New York and that's how fast someone gets angry. I think I might have told. Listen, pretentious city, which I don't remember because it was a long time ago in bed. It, um I remember very vividly the first time this happened to me and I was on the Eighth Avenue bus going uptown something I did not do frequently. I did not take the bus frequently. And there used to be on the shot. When I say used to be I mean, like 1970 let on the South east corner of 42nd and eighth there have been a bank. And I look at the bus window and the bank was gone. Was demolished and I was incredibly upset. Where's the bank? Not that I'd ever been in this bank. And by the way, then not that it was ever in any way And not that I cared about a bank and I still don't. But that bank was supposed to be there because it was there when I got here. This was a question from the Port Authority so that bank was supposed to be their process. New York is supposed to stay in people's minds. The way it was when you got here..
Use Books (And The Internet) As A Door, Not A Mirror
"Well i just finished a number. Netflix series lockdown is certainly helped me. Take care of my to do list on netflix. If nothing else and this time it was the series. Pretend it's a city which is a short interview series. Between martin scorsese director. And fran liebowitz the american author and humorist and fran is a lover of books and in this series. She talks about her love of book several times but one of the lines that really grabbed me was way. She said that a book should really be a door into a new world. And that's the beauty of reading books particularly when you're young it's a chance for you to escape the world. You're in a chance for you to go into another fantasy world or at least to learn about another different world. And i guess the inference in a lot of what she was saying was that. That's what's missing today because we're not reading books like we should or as like we used to and i think it's an interesting comparison to the internet because these days in the internet. We're all stuck into this world of social media which oftentimes thanks to the algorithms of course is really a mirror. It's a reflection of what we are interested in what we like and what we do. It doesn't necessarily show us new things over time. And that's the serendipity that fran talks about in this series as well of walking into a bookstore and just discovering a book opening it up using that as the door into this new world. Learning something that you did not know so. I think the comparison really is apt in today's world. And i think we should be using books as we should the internet and social media and everything else that lives on the internet as a door not just as a mirror that reflects who we are and what we are and it's something you may recall. He's got a very good memory. I spoke about way back in episode fifty to this show where i spoke about the need for businesses in general to look out the window. Not look in the mirror with her that we should reflect. We should take a good look at ourselves in the mirror but that is only gonna show what we already know will show us the image of what we already have but if you look out the window and have a look at what's going on around you you can actually learn a lot more. And it's basically the same point as frame was saying in this series. It's on netflix. Check it out. Pretend it's the city pretty funny actually or

Oscars set inclusion standards for Best Picture nominees
"In other news that's rocking La after years of Hashtag Oscarssowhite. The Motion Picture Academy has announced a major rule change to hopefully make the Oscars. Hashtag. So right, the Oscars are making inclusion requirement for best picture consideration starting at twenty, twenty four, those movies must meet diversity requirements in two out of four production categories widening opportunities for underrepresented groups. They include women, minorities, and people with cognitive or physical disabilities promoters of the initiative say the changes will better reflect the diversity of the movie going audience. So this is encompassing the totality of the people that actually work on film. All Shift From now on movies can only be nominated for best picture if they meet certain diversity thresholds wherever Martin Scorsese is right now he is shitting himself. He's probably calling dicaprio begging him to make a plan come on your show. You can't play black you can do anything I know you can personally. I think this opens a bunch of opportunities I. Hope that long running franchises will just switch up the races of people and never address it. Like how dope would be in the next Batman Movie? He's just Jamaican I beat about. What? Did you. See. For. What you want to see if what give him dude my you know what was funny man is soon as the story came out so many people read the headline and they just started panicking bitching online people like this is censorship you can't force filmmakers to create whatever you want I mean, how can you make a period piece with diversity? There were no black people but. You actually read the story before chiming in people would have realised that in fact, these new standards which only take effect in two thousand, twenty four I'm not that strict. For instance, a movie qualifies if it has just one lead role from an underrepresented group and thirty percents of the crew from an underrepresented group as well. Right? Even if it has just thirty percent diversity in the Marketing Department or an internship program for an underrepresented group and by the way. They define underrepresented groups as Black Asian Hispanic Indigenous People, women, the disabled community or members of the Lgbtq community. So in other words, it's super easy to meet this criteria.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Creators Depart Netflix's Live-Action Series
"Okay, let's start off with A bit of news that I'm sure comes to some disappointment our own ht. What is going on with Avatar the last air bender they were GonNa make a live action TV series for net flicks. What is the update? The latest update is a real bummer for avatars last Air Bender Fans Michael Dante Di Martino and Brian Connie ebsco who created the original acclaimed nickelodeon. Animated Series have parted ways with net flicks over the creative direction of live action remake series. De Martino Post announced in a post on the website titled An Open Letter to Avatar last air bender fans saying that they couldn't control the creative direction of the series and decided to just exit the project altogether and he he had some pretty not I wouldn't say harsh but not. Veiled for in terms of thinly-veiled In like knots unhappiness with Netflix production So he said at one point The project, which is still ongoing has the potential to be good. But what can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on screen, it will not be what Brian and I had envisioned or to make. So this is a massive bummer for Avatar. The last Air Bend Fans because De Martino. Goes involvement in the first place was kind of the reason that There was somewhat cautious excitement for this because these the creators at donors in executive producers for the new Netflix series and they promised or shared rather that they would be deliberate. Choice to a cast as. A people of Color and ethnically accurate to the depictions in leverage animated series and the. The memory of the last live action attempt. Ed Bender is still strong in fans mines, and we don't want a repeat of that. So now that contracts go rhino are gone, there's a lot of fear that the the. Disaster will be. Repeated. Yeah, we shouldn't insinuate that this disagreement it's probably over like the the the racist of casting or anything could be like story or character that we don't even know what the disagreements are over. This is a little surprising to me though because my conversations with filmmakers on and off the record has been that like Netflix's is pretty hands off with stuff. So I'm actually very surprised that big Conflict here I'm curious as a as a fan of Avatar the last air bender now that the creators are known no longer involved in this, would you still be excited to watch live action series not at all? My cautious excitement from before. Has now turned to a sort of read. which not to say that there can you know the situation can't come out the better I'm sure that there are some great. Writers and creators out there who could have an affection for Avatar last bender could. Steer this in the right direction, but it just feels like. Martino and Connie lasko are such a major part of Avatar less air bender and its success in why such great perfect animated show that they're not being involved in stepping way in a in this situation where it seems that they clash with the Netflix's executives in some way can't really know what? I sure what it just doesn't dumb. Bode well for the production at large.

She doesn't typically pay a lot of attention to what's going on in Hollywood. Here, we have a a the crown net flicks up on the right. Have you watched any of the crown yet? I have not. On the left we have marriage story billboard. This is a Scarlett Johansson. I don't think I want to watch that. You may not be the right person for streaming roddy in a row. We got the Irishman. That's Scorsese's film and then DOLEMITE is my name. Reading that right. Alfie, these are both movies. They're both movies. You can see on Netflix Sega. Any of these this is this is a worthwhile trip for learning. What's on Netflix? You could just actually go to your browser. Are these like already outer. These are like I don't know. Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on. TV, it's a way to watch Hollywood talking to itself, these billboards are messages which are very much directed at Hollywood except now. netflix's doing most of the talking. Stranger things net flix. The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix. Even though that time was just a few years ago. If you didn't know any better, you'd think. Netflix's has always been a huge part of Hollywood. Syphilis can be fatal to your baby free. Check that out not flick show. UNCLEAR UNCLEAR? Welcome the land of the giants. The NETFLIX's effect. I'm Peter Coffee. Today. We're talking about how NETFLIX's.

World to companies becomes so omnipresent in our lives that CEO Reed. Hastings even counts as a sort of celebrity. He's a big enough deal for a guest spot Stephen Colbert. You're like one of the big one of those big new media disruptors. Why did the entertainment industry need to be disrupted? Just for the fun of it. On this happened really quickly. We talked to Kim Masters veteran show business journalist at the Hollywood reporter who said that a decade ago Netflix's was an afterthought for big media companies newcomers from Silicon Valley or anywhere else did not strike fear in the hearts of moguls. There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel. Let netflix's stream always rate movies from Sony and Disney so stars had created the service called Vong which nobody listening to this podcast is GonNa Remember, but there was a service before Netflix's. That was streaming. Streaming movies called. Longo Van Gogh was losing seventy million dollars a year. Rich Greenfield is an analyst with light shed partners. He's been following digital media closely for years, and in walks, Reed Hastings in Ted Sandoz and says hey will take that streaming content. You could sub-licensed to us and we'll pay you. Tens of millions of dollars Netflix's use it as the base to build their streaming service, versus what was historically just a DVD service. And the rest is they say is history.
Truth vs Hollywood
"Welcome to truth versus Hollywood I'm David, Chen and A. Truth versus Hollywood is look at films that are based on a true story, but we don't just talk about the film. We also talk about that true story. On this podcast will touch on what really happened. How that differs from the film and why and we're not just talking, heads will hear about the true story through interviews from experts, witnesses and people who were involved in it. It's both the real facts and the real facts are l. fix. What do you think that Joanna I loved it today Ridge? Today! We're talking about Martin. Scorsese's classic film Goodfellas Goodfellas is based on the book Wiseguy. Nicholas Pathology which, in turn is based on life of Mobster Henry Hill Hill was actually alive when the film came out and was very pleased with his film based on him, and as we'll talk about later, it definitely had an effect on his life. Pathology worked with Scorsese to write the screenplay and the film was. was a complete. It nominated for six Academy Awards and won one Joe Pesci for supporting actor. It's considered one of the best gangster movies of all times. If I put it on their list of one hundred years, one hundred movies and the Library of Congress decided that it was culturally important and added it to its preservation archives all right well. Let's get to the movie itself. It stars Ray Liotta. Hill Robert Deniro as Jimmy, the Gent Conway, who's based on Jimmy the Gent? Burke Joe Pesci as Tommy devito based on Tommy desimone Paul Sorvino Paul cicero based on Paul Vario and Lorraine Bracco as Henry's wife Karen Hill. Many real life figures at this movie was based off of an apparently Henry Hill ended up getting paid five hundred eighty thousand dollars because of the use of historian, this movie, which is a lot of money to pay to a mobster who has done very horrible things you know in watching this movie again. John Robinson one of the things that. I kind of realized you know or reflected on is the fact that we've been lost you decades seen so many movies about bad men, doing bad things, and that this movie kind of one of the prototypical examples of how they can be glorified an elevated in this. Movie makes that lifestyle look really glamorous while at the same time depicting some of the negative consequence lifestyle, but at the same time it does rubbed me the wrong way that like the people who are involved often are rewarded. We also saw this Martin. Scorsese's Will Wall Street as well. Similar dynamic, there so I'm kind of curious like as you're reflecting on your overall experience of watching the movie, and now that we know little bit more about what happened with the real life characters, and we're GONNA. Talk about it during the courses podcast like. How did it strike you that? This is based off of Real Person I. Think Scar says he couldn't have picked a better release. Go subject to to glum onto here than Henry Hill because though he is gangster and he's fully involved in this gangster life, he is a the likability of this character, which is really what's Cortesi was going for I've seen interviews. We talked about the nineteen thirty two scarface, which was the first time he ever saw. Gangsters depicted as really likable. When you Henry Hill. And he does terrible things, but he's a gangster who is a little squeamish. We see this the film and it's corroborated by true story of his life. He was violent crimes, but he wasn't a a mass murderer and You know the the charisma of him. I think is really important. He wasn't one of the most vicious people in this story. And so I think you're making good point that like. If you're GONNA choose an entry way into this world. Henry Hill is probably the ideal candidate in this case so. Well, the film opens with three men driving in a car, having a seemingly normal evening. It's then revealed that there is a captive in the trunk and than shortly after him, we mmediately get Henry's voiceover with the iconic line as far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. It's one of the most. Openings and Awesome History Joanna Robinson after nearly three decades. How effective did you find this opening? Well, it's funny. I did not see I was eight years old when fellows came out, or maybe nine so I did not see it in theaters and I didn't see it until later in life and but by then it already seats into the culture because it was so iconic. You know there's. Maniacs good feathers, pigeon parody, and like all sorts of stuff, so I'm going to wear of the beats of it, even though the first exposure to goodfellas was. Is what you're saying. Thousand percent absolutely. But you know so by the time I had seen it. I had also seen so many things that had imitated it, and this is true of like so many of our great films like by the time you get around to watching it. Maybe you seen a bunch of people. Knock it off and so you're like well. How groundbreaking? Is this
Apple and Paramount to make a deal for Martin Scorseses next movie
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Melanie and Matt. The streaming wars as you know as many people who are listeners know are underway. Hbo Max Coming out onto the field of play this week. A lot of people finding it a little including me a little tricky to figure out how to get that even though as a spectrum customer I should be able to access it but it doesn't show up on my TV. Because I have Roku so it's some people can't find it. Some people like it but we are seeing apple seeming to up its game with some big high profile deals. They are spending money. It's a little reminiscent in some ways of the Netflix strategy. Where we seen them angling for high profile expensive awards movies awards prestige movies apple is now throwing. Its hat into that ring. You know backed by the might the economic might that wealth of Apple. Yeah and this is a big project. Martin Scorsese Film. Sources are saying it's between one seventy five two hundred million dollars depending on who you believe probably will go much higher than that given scores as he's track record. It's got Leonardo DiCaprio. It's called killers of the flower moon. And this is a really really interesting play for Apple. Because you saw Netflix's get a lot of attention for the Irishman last year. Whether it was good or bad you can debate that. But it got them into the Oscar conversation in a meaningful way. They didn't walk away with best picture but they were in the game and apple will likely be in the awards game when this movie eventually comes out. What's interesting here? Is the deal structure. You've done some reporting on that because it was originally paramount. Paramount got cold feet and it ended up at apple after a bidding war. After you know it was shopped around town and this is essentially. What I think is going to happen with a lot of movies. Going forward where they get developed at the studios than the price inches up inches up inches up studios where once upon a time they might have taken a risk on a big movie from a big director are now going to get cold. Feet and income streamers just clarify something about that. Paramount is not out of this game. Scorsese has his deal there and they did release them to shop this around but they own the property the underlying novel and this is a very dark period piece set in Oklahoma in the nineteen twenties. Leo DiCaprio originally was supposed to play a good guy. Paramount was really interested in that version. Then he changed it so that he was playing a kind of a villain character and I am told that paramount felt this is now a less commercial movie with the same budget which point they did say go ahead and shop at around and there was a really long pause and apple did step up but it is still a question of a deal with paramount because it is expected that paramount will at least get some sort of a percentage at pop probably released the film in theaters. Which is what. Scorsese did not get with the Irishman with net flicks so having explained all that. Let me say I would pay money? Actually to see tensor Endo's at Netflix's sit down and explain to me. The cost benefit analysis of having spent which I think was certainly over two hundred billion dollars on the Irishman. Yes they got nominated no they. Didn't you know we? They have all the data. How many people sat through it. Did anybody subscribed because of it. It's a black box for people like us but this is this is something that apple is now saying. We're in it. We're in it in a way that will make Scorsese happy with theatrical release and ironically make paramount happy because paramount will have its name on this movie and we'll probably get a good chunk of some kind of a piece of whatever box office it generates win it can get made because we're all stuck now waiting for protocols and an insurance policies to make filming possible so we will see. I will note. This isn't the only movie they bought. They bought Tom. Hanks's movie Greyhound from Sony for supposedly around seventy million. That movie was done studios will sell as you suggest Matt with movies. That you to bring in cash right now I would say many cases. It is not a great vote of confidence. When you see these deals made in the movie itself but it will be high profile. It is Tom Hanks and for Apple. They obviously decided it was worth

"scorsese" Discussed on The Qwipster Film Review Podcast
"Today I am going to be looking at the latest film. From Martin Scorsese and it's a film. It's notable because it's currently playing on the Netflix streaming service. It is called the Irishman. It is an R. rated film it did give some theatrical release before it was put into Netflix. But I'll get into that. In a moment. It has pervasive of language. It has strong violence in. It runs another notable thing three hours and twenty nine minutes. The main star is Robert Deniro with sizeable sizable supporting roles. For Joe Patchy Al Pacino Harvey Keitel Stephen Graham Ray Romano Anna Paklin and bobby kind of Ali are in the film. Martin Scorsese as I mentioned is the director Stevens alien credited with the screenplay of Irishman is a tale that is spun from the vantage point of an older man. He's in a nursing home. And then we get to see a series of very extended confessional flashbacks as the main body of the film. A Robert Gordon. Euro is in that lead role of that old man. The World War Two veteran meat delivery driver named Frank Sheeran who back in the nineteen fifties. He got get involved as a Hitman for the mob after he met and he provided his services to a well known crime boss named Russell. BUFFA Lino Beverly knows. Played by Joe Pesci she in the film now during his time working with Russell. Franken's up meeting and then becoming a close confidante of the nation's most influential union boss Jimmy Hoffa and then he's played by Al Pacino Hafa was known for using strong-arm tactics to bring the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union to power organized crime had a significant influence in this era on the unions and in business and really up to the highest levels of government. So frank finds himself on the rise. He plays bodyguard and a man of trust to Hoffa in his attempts to keep control of the most powerful union in the country. Now if you know your history you know Kinda wear this is going to go although although you know the mystery of Jimmy Hoffa kind of still exists today this film attempts to answer some of those questions now. The Irishman is a notable film for for many reasons. I've already given you a couple but in Martin Scorsese's long and illustrious career he struggled with the financing here for over a decade to get. The movie made his way. The current studios make decisions primarily for wet will make them a prophet cinema for art and these Oscar Bait Prestige films. They end up getting packaged with a similar notion in mind they want to have their budgets limited and to market them on the hope that perhaps it might take off often become lucrative for them after languishing for several years. Martin Scorsese may depress to push forward with the Irishman. After the release of silence in Twenty Sixteen eighteen however the financially struggling paramount pictures they paid for domestic distribution rights which was good but then they scoffed at the exploding costs of putting forward word. The filmmakers vision as it was the ended up dropping out when the leading financiers a Mexican company called Fabrica Cassini. They cancelled their one hundred. The million dollar bid to fund the money when the costs looked to skyrocket well above that amount Scorsese ended up bucking then the traditional studio system in two thousand seventeen to make his film with the Streaming Service Netflix Netflix. There's no need to worry about selling tickets because they really have a platform already for their viewers you know they have a different prophets structure that relies on getting new subscribers to sign on to see their wealth of entertainment that they provide and they want to keep all subscribers from canceling because because they're satisfied with them continuing to get fresh content of quality so they footed the hundred and five million dollars for the exclusive rights to the Irishman and in addition to that the overall budget to make film into one of the best films in the career of one of the best film makers of all time. That's quite a feather in. Netflix is cap now. Despite despite not being made by a major studio Scorsese here received a hefty budget to make the film he wanted a hundred and fifty nine million dollars. That's the kind of money that studio's really. I usually only afford the movies. That Scorsese has recently criticized as so-called not cinema in his interviews of late. You know he's a longtime sinophile and he's also been a cinema Peres to eat. Long has been extolling the merits of the theater and crowd experience to take movies. And that makes his marriage to netflix particularly striking they. They would split the difference by releasing Irishman exclusively into theaters for twenty six days before it ended up debut in on the streaming service. It's not a popular way to do it. Some major as your chains so major theater chains have been resistant to showcasing films that ended up going quickly to digital so a lot of them chose not to carry it. Not only because short runs cut into theater profits because the longer that films run in their theaters the more of the percentage of the take that they get but audiences are also hesitant to pay for an experience into theater when they could see it on Netflix in just a short number of days. So Scorsese has since softened on his initial criticisms of the studios in their quest forever. Profitable temple releases here. He chooses to let his work speak for him and it speaks volumes. The Irishman is best argument in reminding cinna files on what it's like to see a visionary filmmaker deliver an honest to goodness artistic and dramatic achievement in crafting challenging cinema cinema set of trying to service audiences by making strictly what we want to see which is usually what the temple releases do not. What is the Irishman well? It's an adaptation one of this two thousand four true crime book that was written by a former Delaware. Deputy Attorney General. He ended up turning into an author. His name is Charles Brandt. He published a book upon on which the Irishman is based. But it's called. I heard you paint houses in book. Form The book chronicles Frank Sheeran's alleged activities working for the Buffalo Crime Family and details els his purported involvement in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa. This is a book that Robert Deniro read during his time when he was directing his film the Good Shepherd that was back in two thousand six. It has some similar subject matter because it gives some history of the Bay of pigs which is kind of what the Good Shepherd was revolving around Deniro connected acted with Charles Brands Book. He ended up handing it to Martin Scorsese to read and he thought it could be a possible project for them to work together instead of the one that they had been planning which was of the. Don winslow novel called the winter of Frankie machine. Now Scorsese felt that if deniro was finding it so passionate about this potential project and the way he hasn't I've been in some time maybe it would be worth pouring all of their time and hearts into getting a film that they truly wanted to see made at this point in their career so he ended up optioning the book immediately after reading it in two thousand seven and yet he still struggled to try to bring it to the screen and that lasted for over a decade because initially he was struggling with scheduling all of these actors that he wanted to appear in the film to be available. And then there was a darker reality as timeline on studios were becoming more reticent to provide the funds necessary necessary to bring such a sprawling epic gangster film too big screens in this era of massive releases that concentrate on superheroes and big budget action Chin and whatnot. This was not going to be a lucrative film in most studios mind so the rest is of course history. We see it on Netflix. Now in this film will end up marking the ninth feature film collaboration between the Director and Deniro. They had not done a movie together. A full-fledged movie since Nineteen ninety-five Gangster Opus called Casino now also from Casino is Joe Patchy he reportedly had been asked by. Martin Scorsese dozens of times to come in to do the film before consenting they say over over fifty times PECI really had not appeared in any movie other than doing voice work since two thousand ten love ranch and that was his first significant roles since since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight lethal weapon four so for the past twenty plus years. He really hasn't done very much. She said he was through with gangster movies in particular but Scorsese insisted listed. This one would be worth his wild come back to you deniro. So played a role in getting pets. She to reconsider. And the actor finally consented when Netflix got involved because then the project changed from a pipe dream to something that actually had solid backing an interest in Deniro was right. The film is different and the Irishman's not just about the rise and fall all of a criminal empires so many gangster films are. This is about more than that. It's about the corrosive nature of crime itself on those participate in the life of killing and thuggery. This is a story of a man at the end of his life. He looks back at all he's done and this is also made by people who are also looking back. At the kinds of films they've done and in that retrospection altogether they find a defined poignancy in the tolls that are paid and traded away to live a wretched life. It's something that really can. Only be observed at the other end of life looking back back a retrospective gangster film not commonly seen anymore although both knew each other and traversed the same cinematic circles for nearly five decades. The Irishman also marks the first collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Al Pacino. They discussed making films together for years so they definitely were on the same page. They're the most promising project that almost became a film was a bio pic on a Jewish Italian artist named Modigliani that dissipated due to studio reticence back in the day back in nineteen eighty. The United Artists Released Heaven's gate. That was a big budget art film and they ended up taking a bath on that. They really faced bankruptcy after that and they ended up getting scooped up by MGM and that made a lot of studios Shy Away from putting forward the funds necessary to make lengthy and lavish art films like that Pacino did appear For three prior films with Robert De Niro though the first of course the all time classic but they didn't work together on the screen. That was the godfather part to the second time. It was much more notable. They made a great film. Ah called Heat Michael Mann's film and the ended up sharing a key scene in that. which a lot of people found very riveting because here were two titans of acting from the the nineteen seventy s through the nineteen eighties working together? The third time they actually worked together much more. But it was a lacklustre misfire. The very few fans really care about beyond the fact that there is is a pairing of Pacino and Deniro that was called righteous. Kill after that last one de Niro said he would like at least one more chance to work with the Chino but it would have to be in a project that they both could could be proud of. Making and the Irishman I think is that movie that they should be pleased very pleased that they made now all three of these actors give their best performances on film in decades especially especially Robert Deniro. He acts like the film really means the world to him. And that's probably because it does. It is a passion project for him even more so than it is for Scorsese. We witnessed Deniro's passion. You can see a scene that comes late in the movie. He as frank struggles to spin a hopeful assurance to be concerned wife agonizing about her husband. Who's been missing for a couple of days? Frank knows of course what happens to the husband Jimmy Hoffa but he has to maintain this facade of being a family friend and to be able to consoling in that effort and he's struggling to find the words. You know this is evidence not only of the scene but throughout this whole film of a masterful performance. I think this will will allay naysayers who have long. How did that? The actors best work is long behind him. Meanwhile Pacino is electrifying as you would expect as Jimmy Hoffa's both menacing and comical comical is a mix of strengthen actually vulnerability that really could only come from one of the great actors in Cinema. It's really a well rounded part. It's not just to stereotype. And although he's rarely acted in the last two decades I think Joe Patchy really seems like he hasn't missed a beat here. Even longtime squeezy collaborating Harvey Harvey keitel gets a smaller appearance. Although the role may be too small to garner him to kind of accolades that these other actors are getting. The Scorsese is still in peak. Form here here with the Irishman his use of steady cams to at intimacy and to comment on some of his other works and music to punctuate the time in the setting in the mood of the film. And there's a heap of emphasis on period details. Here is very immersive. He had already had a shorthand with these lead actors. He'd worked with before I guess Pacino was new to him but he is also Louis season actor that's used to improvisation reactions and he has played variations of tough guys like Hoffa throughout his career. So he didn't really need a lot of guidance. Scorsese here is discovering covering new facets by not portraying these top gangsters as unapproachable or glossed over with menaces so many other films dude instead. They're flawed their Pity they're concerned with very mundane issues on a human level. Russell doesn't want people to smoke in his car. and Jimmy Hoffa really can't get over someone meeting with him unless they're wearing a suit especially if they're late that really bothers him to no end and I guess if you want to read into this in all these ways. These behaviors are a measure of control. Roland respect. That drives them. They expect and setup arbitrary rules as guideposts on how others should behave around them whether they continue to have that respect as measured by whether other people are willing to indulge in not smoking in a car or being on time and wearing a suit a really dogs these men to no end if they don't get that respect so very very telling their the film features over two hundred fifty characters to portray throughout several decades heavily researched period wardrobe sets vehicles. Guns ends other props that are appropriate to each era. Six thousand extras were also utilized in the course of the shoot and that shoot took place at over one hundred different locations Israel locations not just done on a movie set now. Does it need to be three and a half hours long now if you will just want to tell this as a story I guess it didn't need to be. You could probably do within two and a half maybe even less than that but if you removed even an hour of this film you would likely lose many of the important smaller and more relevant reflections and those personal tidbits that feel so unique in this world that Cortesi and company are creating Scorsese here deliberately brings in details like.

"So you you're still going to watch the Martin Scorsese Netflix film the Irishman even though Robert deniro is this this crazy never Trumper the talks about punching trump in the face all the time like how can you support that unlike look you know what as far as I know he's the only never Trumper celebrity that starring in a movie that's pretty good I thought that I mean that's like you know one out of a hundred and fifty right like Martin Scorsese I have no clue of Martin Scorsese's political affiliation was and even if I did I'd probably still watch is getting really really good reviews I don't care what I could care less what Donald are Robert deniro I have to say and his thoughts on Donald Trump they're completely unoriginal anyway if somebody is completely a horrible rotten person and completely goes against your political views can you still enjoy their craft like I'm not gonna go what job joy Behar do stand up now I don't really go on lunch out to see a movie starring Bette Midler but let me put this into your world what if you found out that all the guys to Metallica the part of the resistance and they wear Madonna hats on the weekend all I I would not go see Metallica show I knew that that was going to be the the substance of their concert is is stopping down in between each song and and lecturing us no I would not go to a concert really but that's not what they do that's all I've been when I went to Metallica show lasted no this year in March none of that but what they didn't stop down in the show but you just knew they were like not as long as they didn't bring it out in the middle of of something that I'm paying for no I I mean I I don't like I don't know what the foo fighters political affiliations are I have a few good feeling about some of the that's what I know they lied hurled GMI like I don't know what I'm going to pay for Pearl Jam concert I haven't seen him in concert so I don't know but I think that sometimes they'll stop in between songs and and start lecturing people I'm not that's not what I paid to see and so so the Irishman I you know I pay for Netflix and I don't know I like again I would mention this yesterday I think that the the Scorsese maybe back in twenty fifteen compared Donald Trump when his characters and the gangs of New York that's the only thing I've ever seen Martin's of Marty say call Marty Marty Scorsese Bobby and Marty your buddies I'm Bob yeah I had no clue what Robert deniro's political feelings working for Donald Trump got elected either so why watch as I get three half hours he would almost even Cole bear and last night they were talking a little bit about the movie and then he also compared Donald Trump to a domestic violence offender it's like living in an abusive household you feel you don't know what's going to happen next what crazy thing is going to happen what's what's gonna make you say what what the hell's going on yeah and there's only one angry person gets to say what is real exactly with it exactly I've but virtually no people that have lived in real domestic abuse situations I I don't think comparing it to that does it justice at all that's awful no matter how how large the people aren't just a dorm horrible comparison to make with people that have been real victims of domestic violence wow Robert De Niro on with Stephen Cole bear last night when he wasn't comparing the president to someone who commits heinous acts of domestic violence he basically just said he's a president he's a fake president.

S. B. bang Russia's security service and that was the first in in a in a long line of evidence that really pointed to two year involvement by the Russian state security apparatus in these the series of bombings that was so deadly in Moscow now they have us be had been headed by Vladimir Putin before his ascent to power and so the fact that the F. S. B. had its fingerprints on these bombings indicated that he could have potentially been involved and certainly the impact of those bombings was to allow peace and to build this platform from which he could fulminate against that the threat of these Chechen rebels and as I say build himself up as this kind of strong mon and it really set the stage for his presidency which has really been built around this I dare for storing Russian greatness and Russian might do you write in the book that covert killing was a particularly Soviet form of state craft this this goes back decades we me that's right so you targeted assassination was it was a kind of tool of state Croft that requested for many years in the hands of the KGB the Soviet state security agency the KGB was famous for refining the kind of art and science of targeted killing and have you know of having weapons labs and poisons factories that churned out kind of weapons of assassination like rice and tips on brothers famously for example lipstick pistols were exploding cigarette packets new KGB famous name was behind the assassination of Leon Trotsky with an ice pick you know that there were many notorious and brazen can to billing to assassinations during that the Soviet era that had that capability had ready dwindled since the fall of the Soviet Union and it was ready when the ten came to power and piece of himself having come up through the ranks of the KGB I'm being ready I'm a student and a kind of major fanboy if that of the Soviet Union and does the case eBay who grew up reading stories have of you named Katie being spied Croft that he really began to pull resource back into tooling up the Russian state security apparatus to you know to once again re engage in the office of targeted assassination with with some really creative means there is poisoning and radiation and that kind of thing that's right yeah I'm a part of what the you know research established was not used in house in a very constructive way you know I poured resources into a number of the pirate trees in which government scientists just dedicate their lives to the development of weapons and poisons which are designed to kill without leaving a trace so we know that the Russian state has a whole armory of of of poisons which is designed to try to for example fast acting **** says or to trigger cardiac arrest or even psychotropic drugs which are designed to destabilize enemy targets to you know mood altering substances which can create their parents thought the person has plunged into a very deep and profound depression and one of the things our intelligence sources who talked to us about is is the study of suicide clusters in which there is a suspicion not the Russian state may have either driven individuals to kill themselves or has so successfully destabilize them dot when that deaths are made to look like suicides as a pretext in which that that can be made believable because that behavior in the weeks leading up to that justice has been served disorders now a lot of the Russian exiles who became opponents and eventually targets of the Kremlin some former oligarchs and in some cases not the most admirable of people seem to settle in Great Britain why was it a favored destination for these exiles well those ways kind of made the perfect playground for the super rich Russians here he slides driving if he sends regime because it's a place where you know that there is a kind of degree of respectability about investing your money in the United Kingdom but actually the fight the vagaries of the precious financial system make it very easy to establish shell companies with very little scrutiny into which money can be managed and it's actually has been historically and and to some extent still to this day very easy to plow huge amounts of money in to purchase properties process companies in British banks without a huge amount of scrutiny from the authorities and so you you know it is possible for these Russian run aways to come to person to expatriate huge fortunes and reinvest them to you and then also to to kind of loan to that reputations into the west by sending their children to some of the most prestigious public schools that Britain has to affect him making endowments to the colleges of of leading universities in Britain buying up some of the most prestigious stately homes in the country and really kind of crossed in a life that that bore all the hallmarks of kind of British establishment respectability that which was funded entirely by money much of which had been helping inner expatriated from Russia in fatty corrupted GPS instances a lot of what you deal with in this book is the British government's attitude towards the suspicious deaths how did the government generally regard these oligarchs of arriving from Russia and and and for that matter in a British the business interests in Russia how did they figure into the British government's attitude towards these events well they're kind of in flight of Russian money into the British colony has been a major player and particularly given the decline of the British manufacturing industry industry in increasing reliance on financial services to prop up the pressure to come to me so there's been a great eagerness on the part of the British authorities to welcoming these these Russian run aways and to dole out investment visas which which are basically ground so you know the right to remain in the country to those who can afford to invest yeah right because it sums of money in the economy and say that this being the in in lots of ways you know decision by government kind of roll out the red carpet and let wealthy Russians into the country and and you know as a result fatty soon to prison came to power huge sums of money you know tens of billions a year were pouring into the pressure to come to me from these these wealthy Russian oligarchs and had been attracted hair I'm and will say you know from from major Russian companies fighting on the London Stock Exchange and also some other routes and you know at the same time Britain is a major investor in in Russian energy projects as well say there are also serve reasons wanted to purchase government has being keen to preserve thought flow of Russian money into person but at the same time fairly soon off to this kind of cost of Russian runaways arrived it became clear that they were companies Bonnie some pretty major security threats and I think that's why the British government found itself in a bit of a double blind wanting to welcome these enemies of the Russian state in but then also not wanting to have a confrontation with the Kremlin when threats to their lives imagine versus oil Heidi

Movie what are your thoughts on like. Are you excited for it and you can be good. The Irishman Yeah I can't wait the first first trailer didn't wow me over but I've All the critics that I follow in respect walked out and we're just like get get ready. He he crushed it good the CGI stuff initially was like a little bit scary for me. How much the movie they gave him like? One hundred and twenty million dollars or something to do in all of it is Da Cgi. But yeah. I can't I couldn't be more excited. Mostly from critic response walking out of it was like We should always give more sese one hundred plus million dollars to make your yeah. Just do a do do whatever you want you. Can't he. Maybe has like ten years left them. Yeah so yeah. I'm very excited out. Of course that Clint Eastwood still make movies. Eat them up on ninety. No no at. He's alright yeah Scorsese's using any of those i. I don't think he would even seen the trailer for yet but I I wonder if he's using some the de aging special effects that have been used in marvel marvel movies that would be that would be very on it now. I'm not saying that You Know Benjamin Button hasn't come out years before or whatever but it's been pine I wouldn't say perfected but nowhere near a lot of Michael Title Douglaston Atman and then Oh Sim Jackson in the captain. Marvel movie honestly. I feel like that stuff is mind blowing. The there's some of it in a ventures too I think is when Robert Downey junior gets on stage and does it with his old self as a nineteen year. Old College Kid in my job was on the floor dead yet. Just keep seamless. Unbelievable plastic surgeons going out of business in La. Now we come to God. Dammit Jim and I man was hit and miss that. was there a moment where it's this looks phenomenal. You can see the money and then there are moments where it's like like that looks like a cartoon that was like Will Smith cartoon. How many stars did you give that one? That was three out of five. It was like the most generous review on the Internet. They saw the trailer in the first trailer for that. And it just it looks like it's nothing but like ingrown that that's that's a blurb right. Yeah Yeah that is. Yeah I I really liked the premise of it. Like I I wanted to be better than it was. I think that that was wishful thinking on my part of like I want. I like the idea of like young young assassin and an older SAS squaring off with the differences that come into play like experience or youth like you know agility your intelligence look better. Yeah exactly. Yeah it's like I wanted to be kind of variation looper and it's like that's what I was hoping porn. That's what I did not get I I will say this. We're getting off topic. But I'm just not a Wilma Fan. I mean some of these are okay. But it's like I saw him like this. Looks like dog shit. You like in the permit sounds awesome and really need. But like I'm just GonNa Will Smith Fan Lance crazy writing team attached to that movie you have been in like in production purgatory for twenty years. So they had forever to work on the script in English is not a dumb dumb dumb. No but he But he's done this a few times made the. What was the halftime show for billy? Jim Bob Gates because ever seen this movie I can't remember I know what you're talking about here in the name of it. But he's made some of my favorite movies ever in life. Pie was great by Crouching Tiger and then and since insensibility everybody laughed all I like to actually travis. That's all right. It was actually something like I said before. I've said it's I liked the movie as it being like a movie like great I liked it. Outweigh fighting poodle. Four giant poodle in the forest. Ah The symbolism. We've all been there. I'm there for the tank. Seen in a desert get the scope of the desert like oh he just picked up a tank in tossed it two miles and it looks looks like pretty realistic. That's what we're getting when I when I go to the movie and also Connolly. Yeah Yeah yes that. I agree with row level. So Scorsese Irishman. Oh Oh yeah that movie It'll be interesting. He hasn't worked with narrow or Pacino. And and I'll be honest. I didn't really know any of that so when I went and watched the trailer I was like Holy Shit in the most recent came out I was like yeah I should probably go see this movie. Who but yeah? I'm super excited for it. The same way as I actually likes worse as he like a lot once again like assaulting three hours I come on man three hours two minutes I think and I was like really but with his films sometimes. It doesn't feel that way like as you're actually so invested into it and it's like okay aviator what. The fog man started his last film Grenell. Okay Silence Hugo Hugo which. I love that movie on You. The the Caprio live wolf of Wall Street. Yeah what was the one where he decak. How can we think of the name of the CAPRIO? The goes to the mental officer Shutter Island one. I can think of the name of which I call that as soon as I saw the trailer after I was like Oh shit I think I know what happens. We get Shamlan. which for better working at night? The question is in the arch. We're GONNA hear. GimMe shelter I think we have to. GimMe shelter at least a couple of times so I guess. Three R movies casino. Like yeah feels like an hour and fifteen miles long longed super long. But if this is coming out on Netflix and you get to hang out in your house and just watch Netflix. This is the time in half speed. That'd be your clothes for those of you. Travis's known sometimes watch things. Wound have speed so guess honestly because bad so much better if it takes six minutes for somebody to walk down a hall and like grab grab a door handle and find out that it's locked and there's a whole bunch of like suspense in the meantime so it's got the standard speed and then it's got like three times the meth speed of uh-huh knock this out. That's how I watch. My Porn has all day twenty four minutes even like yeah. I'll give you eighty five. I'm a busy man that includes a clean up. That includes that so. That's it's gotta be a first for talking about Clint Porn Cleanup in a Martin Scorsese related. PODCASTS that's gotTa be first considering what he said about my moral movies that is that that is true. Talks about my. I don't want to get into this before we know. This is a mini sued. But yes so he said they're not films And that that he can't watch him or whatever we yeah My thing is. I'm loving the marvel comic renaissance. 'cause this you can. We technology has now reached the stage where you know you saw the weird like John. Claude van Damme streetfighter movies and what they were like. Oh yeah trying to do their like they tried to do the avengers or something like that. It's basically how it would turn out but instead you've got like all. This technology analogy is finally caught up. You can actually put what has happened like on the page like in the movie and that's bad ass and so anyway I guess I'm enjoy his tears. Yeah E. and Francis Ford Coppola who said they are despicable or deportable star with a de. Jesus and I feel strongly about that. And here's one reason. Why feel strongly about that? For Scorsese I think this is hypocritical. Because it's like you look at Scorsese like two of his good buddies to fit contemporaries. He's friends with Tuborg and Lucas and and they all can't kind of candidate in Hollywood at the same time and he dismissed. These marvel movies as Amusement Park rides their thrill rides nothing more literally and say look at Spielberg and Lucas and their films like that. They're famous words like Jaws and Star Wars Indiana Jones which are Buick Park made into amusement park pads bash them because they're buddies and it's easier to like shit on the next year agency orders making entertainment ride and that's it so. I think that's hypocritic I mean. He's he's also placing himself in his films above all that like that's just appealing to the lowest common denominator can go fuck himself with those. I they enjoy his films. I love his move but he can. `smoke is McCain. He's I I get it and I'm going to play devil's advocate. I'm the same way I I don't either up at like I like. I understand what he's saying. And this is gonNA sound weird. Yeah exactly I get what he's saying and also in the fact that it takes. It does a director to direct a film and obviously travis a not knocking it. But it's like so many of these films have been CGI and so when you say the directors they're directing it where they guess they directed it but ultimately you just got you just put somewhere under to make computer graphics. If you really think about it it was like so you didn't have anybody sitting there directing this that and the other it was like they kind of put somebody in there to put it all off all all around and so yes. There's directing but I so I get what he was saying but at the same time aside. Hey that have put a lot of fucking time effort the casting filming this filming pick ups so they're still films in my opinion. It's like both of them so it's like having to play in the same sandbox. Yeah there's like I get what you're saying that they don't they can't just give the concept to you. Know the directors given the concept. Yeah and they have to play within the confines of this and they can't go outside. Yeah that I understand. They can call movies films. That's what they're going to do. But I will say I mean. Do I mean you think Lucas gives a shit right. So now that dude is a scrooge mcduck. He is literally jumping in a pile of money. Every time he wakes up in the morning he don't give a shit now it was just like so exclusive. What why does it bother you? Why does it bother you so much rest right now? People are still missing your. Yeah exactly. It's like this is one of the greatest troll jobs of all time but decides real convenient timing. Yeah exactly so. It's just like come on come on so you're going to be devil's advocate. Yeah I agree with you guys and I. I hate the side of film nerd community. That says That picks on the movies is. They're not cinema. It's not our without understanding like the craft and technique that goes into how ridiculously well made and executed. Those movies are too. It takes aches and clever artists to massively tell those stories Spielberg level. Summer blockbuster every comedic line is hitting the action sionist fluid in understandable that this is an impossible task that they're like twenty people on the planet that can do in May be only two other than the Russo brothers could have done in the last three movies. Did they drafted now. That's not my opinion. That's an objective. Fact that I looked up not they are phenomenal. Storytellers in filmmakers with or Ragnarok. Was it the the them no they didn't to. They did to civil civil war they did. Oh Civil War America movie. They've done the vinegars. Yeah I remember. That was still Weeden so we are in his great storyteller to. I don't think he's as good as they are. They just destroyed it but I agree with them in the sense that there is a tier of funded like mid budget movie. That's dying like forty million dollar arthouse movie that we can. They'll only trust to like three or four directors on the planet like I mean Tarantino gets like seventy or eighty million dollars but there's a lot out of those mid tier movies that they don't give money to anymore so and I've heard Scorsese say this before. Sorry to keep going on about this but get your point. He says we are used it. The the the roller like especially the cinematic artist is to make something edifying in like nourishing the soul and have A to be challenging in the in the difference between just saw great interview with someone the other day was like I don't understand the people that.

"Rich color white why weren't you the the gangs of New York as we understand them from either from the Booker or from the Scorsese movie why it worked they the model for what we think of as a gangster nation well they were these basically big armies of kids living on the streets to serve the function of political muscle for politicians who were sort of the link between the upper world in the lower world and most of those people with age out of those games and going to regular professions it was almost like youth clubs and the thing that changed really honest with tough Jews is really about was Arnold Rothstein who was you know again not a gangster who was a gambler a kind of a fairly wealthy person who grew up in on the up you know not far from where the Roosevelts of the Manhattan started hanging out down the slums if you like to gamble and he became friends of these young gangsters and he saw he saw what was going on in the guy specifically good friends with regard to who the network I think my land he lucky Luciano Joe dies and he sort of had a modern mind and he said you should we organize this more along in American business model and everything else this country's being reinvented old to make it more like an American company and this idea of these gangsters working for these politicians and ultimately fighting is worth of each other is crazy you could get together work together and instead of working for the politicians the politicians could be working for you and that was ultimately the plan put together by Arnold Rothstein and there was a whole war with the old dentures and again because about setting up this new system and rusty did live to see if he himself was killed in the park central hotel but they set this up and the big thing that changed with prohibition then give them actual adults legitimate big money business to going to at a time when they might have gone into your life they became professional forever gangsters and they set up the system of the five families a delicious like five unions as a way to prevent the violence between each other so of one gangster had a problem with another gangster instead of going off and having these huge wars the street wars they would go to kind of an underworld court which would hear their case and decide what should be done who is right who is wrong and if a gangster as a result of that had to be killed they didn't just go off and do it themselves they had a police force basically enforcement laying and that was murder incorporated and half of that game with the guys that I wrote about in tough Jews have a more Jews half more telling and and most of those guys ultimately died in the electric chair during the second World War but when you go back and talk to the people that knew those guys were still around they would tell stories about these all gangsters these all gangsters if you see her with they had if they were telling stories about that like our Hicks and see that's the whole connection no no I I totally see that interesting you mention Arnold Rothstein again of course the the guy who fixed to the nineteen nineteen World Series the Chicago black Sox scandal I'm sure you've heard that Major League Baseball is building a new park for a future White Sox Yankees game in Dyersville Iowa right there by the field of dreams I think there's something really beautiful about yeah actually bringing the white Sox back to I mean it's so meta isn't it in the in the the movie about bringing the white Sox players to redeem themselves from the you know from the from the black Sox scandal is actually gonna bring the real white socks Dyersville the whole that's fascinating that's kind of a thing I'm interested in which is like you get these real life gangsters who are in fact imitating movie gangsters who were imitating real life gangsters and it's his cross pollination you know of baseball you know its own history becoming the the worst thing that ever happened to baseball is like the nineteen nineteen World Series of the maybe there are other World Series fixed before that it turns out and that is the connection between the gangsters and the athletes who are often similar kinds of people you know and yeah and and that that biggest fan of baseball also becomes one of the most fascinating things about baseball you know the fact that it that it has this sort of stain on it makes it more interesting yeah you know it there's something about I I'd love the actually get your point of view on this I was set there was some you know everybody gave up part of their soul what their religious tradition was whether they were Italian Catholic or whether they were you know Russian or German Jews that come to the United States that everybody gave up part of their soul to become part of murder ink or to become part of the mafia but there was another side to that too which was the the there what for those tenement buildings and for those neighborhoods there really wasn't a very high police presence and in some ways the least mafia organization brought some organization and some sense of justice and somebody looking out for the little guy much like we see you know as portrayed in the movie the godfather absolutely they were they were neighborhood organization that took care of people and made and they fill the vacuum otherwise it would be total chaos and you even actually seen that in cities you know where the where the the police have gone after the gangs in a big way and the leaders of the gang go to prison and again falling of these big these neighborhoods follow the complete chaos because the one thing of order that is there is removed and the the with interest me about in tough Jews was the neighborhood history you know like a lot of the Jewish gangsters in a lot of the tank gangsters they had these nicknames that had been taken from earlier gangsters of different ethnic groups so like a famous one is Dutch Schultz whose real name was Arthur Frankenheimer race Jewish gangster and Harlem and Harlem had been what a Jewish neighborhood had been a German neighborhood before that and Dutch Schultz was just this guy reminded people of this other guy from an earlier generation it was like to type kept recurring just with a different host kinda you know and one of the things that I found really fascinating about to be talking with them giving up their souls is the extent to which they were actually able to compartmentalize that you know and one thing was their job it was just part of their job and it was separate from family life for even our spiritual life in the great example that it's almost like a joke is there is a Jewish gangster who was a hit man named red Levine and the story about red Levine was he didn't kill on the Sabbath when whites it wasn't because killing with this and it was because you should work on the Sabbath so Sonny is that would short how they compartmentalized realize it was a you know insane forgot about held Meyer Lansky I broke with Jewish tradition almost superstition and named his son after a living member of his family yeah that it and I I I I think of that from time to time because it it I mean some people thought then that meant his son would be doomed would be cursed because that wasn't something that Jews did that's something that Catholics did so it would be it was much more common for a guy did name it a child after either himself or name it after his living father or whatever that was something that he picked up from it would seem from his association with the Italian Catholics with whom that end of the Jewish and of murder Inc was running and I just I I always always wondered about that like how that is again one of those little things were in the in the melting pot of the United States these little things that that that get that are given up in assimilation but otherwise they were they frightened eyes at a level which many people might consider to be very progressive for today they they weren't anti semitic if the work done and they were very much you know protected each other right and I saw that I mean these are people the Jews and Italians have this bond mostly because they happen to be in the same form that the same time going through the same thing and they formed you know they just said they saw each other that there were so many similarities between their communities that which is very easy and very naturalization ship and there are there this is just a like a kind of assimilation what's interesting about one of the things that's interesting about gangsters and that's why why the godfather degree movie is just that it's not about gangsters it's just a way to look at the way all of society operates just in an exaggerated form you know so I don't think it's probably an accident that the god father was such a huge movie when probably like Watergate was happening right seem like the the country was operating on the same model of a group of guys sitting in an office just making these decisions you know and that's and that's how the underworld work and that's how the upper world work and I think that all this stuff is about how people become Americans how they assimilate how they show their traditions and what you have to leave behind yes Sir to become an American and all sides had the situation where their parents spoke a different language in the house and they spoke in the street and the result was that there was this period where it was like Russia at home and America out in the street and in this in court intense pressure cooker of the time you know the right way to do things was to sort of weight work and hope your kids had a better life but the gangsters are just some of the more the most clever people in the communities who does a willing to wait thanks and yeah and they didn't even offer their kids didn't even know they would be hit it so well you know that their kids didn't even know what they did so and they moved in they live these kind of fantasy lives of being a businessman so right that's what that's really what interested me about it is like a whole family stuff just times the billions well and again the interplay between the Italian Catholic in the east European Jewish immigrants that there's that scene in I guess it's got further to where mmhm Grunow Kirby and Robert De Niro go to an Italian theater production all being done in Italian for the Italian speaking audiences right at a time when you get a sh theater we still hugely popular in New York I guess it's had sort of a revival lately for a language that many people speak anymore but that was that you know there either opera then you are Sir and so everybody again this is just part of that Stratovarius there was that one the pull of the old but they were assimilating into the new but not necessarily he quickly and then some people just decided that they weren't going to be the ones that we're going to plant the tree for their kids to get the fruit from they wanted the fruit from other people's treats I thought the exactly exactly and they were going to take the short cut and a lot of times you know and they didn't that's why the Jewish mob and most of these laws disappeared is because they they just didn't make the cut up whole the latter up behind them as far as they don't want their kids to do this and we said you know if you wanna know happen of the Jewish mob look at what happened Meyer Lansky son one of the sons he went to west point I think that was the one that he named after his dad yeah that was like the fantasy wasn't that they wanna being an even bigger mob boss it was just this kind of one generation only short cut to the American dream but in the end they were still interested in the same dream as everybody else which was being American having a family having economic security and the the weird thing about Lansky as he was in businesses that became legal a lot of the more I mean he was in gambling which is basically legal now and he was in liquor you know and then.

"I I was really like fascinated and then so the damage episode waters up so Damn Yankees upset too. Sweet cherry cabaret right up civil. So I went back, and I watch some of the regional scenes that they were talking about and the painstaking work that went into recreating the originals is like really, really amazing. I went back and like you to if I recommend doing that. If you if you haven't I mean, obviously comes from a place of like incredible reverence for the history of Broadway and the history of musical theatre from Thomson, Stephen, and I think that you could have done. I mean, obviously all that jazz, which is a movie about Voss directed. That's essentially like a memoir about is the own his own life and the end of his own life in some ways, and is is an incredible masterpiece that looms large over this show. But I felt like the date ingeniously kind of just avoid some of the more over. Stylistic influence of it. Like, I I know that apparently like that changes a little bit. But I really felt like this had like kind of like a New York energy. They is uncommon for television. Yes. Days that felt more like an early Martin Scorsese movie ways. And it had this kind of like bursting. Yeah. And I think that that's like Tommy talked about that that was like a conscious decision to feel freaking in lumet. And like have that kind of New York energy in the show, and it's interesting too. It's like, I think that I was watching how obviously the shows arc is how when they meet Gwen Verdon is sort of the toast of the town and Bob Fosse is this kind of nobody quite gets his stuff yet. And they over time, you know, he's he clips his her her work that goes into a lot of his work sorts to get a raised a little bit. And you know, I find that to be obviously, a tragic story, but it's not it's a complicated story. Very curious. To see how it plays out over the next few episodes. I also think that like part of maybe why people there's like some of the reaction. There was is this is a show that cares about ideas. And so I in that comes through and how they portray that the characters it comes through and how they've made the show. And so I think that sort of like to care so much about the ideas, then you also have to care about the idea about Vaas, whatever. But I'm relieved to be watching a show and even having a conversation that is about like ideas, and how you cast them and not necessarily just about like if something's good or bad, or if like, you know, something that's less difficult to discuss like grapple with like, I think is cool to even be having these conversations and like so excited as a television show that wants to dig into it. It's not just like who killed who. Yeah. And like that again, I think that's just like a different kind of show. Like, this is this is a about craft and things that you make and the process of all of it. And and that's where a lot of you know, a lot of assholes thrive. That's true. But that's also part of the conversation. We just talk about it ever. I don't know. It's it's you know, it's a show both really enjoyed it. And I get excited to listen to this interview.

I mean, I'm sure that some of these other recognize are just as as famous as those guys, but they're gonna put together. Good content. My you're not gonna find Martin Scorsese content. That's not really good. You're not gonna find Michael bay content that isn't full of a lot of explosions and a lot of action. So this is going to be good. Compelling content. Did Michael Baidu the last transformers? No, I don't I don't think the Bumblebee one. Yeah. I don't think so. Okay. Good. Because I was there were explosions in that. But it wasn't very good. Okay. So in the US, we earn ten percent of television screen time. And. And the less than that and the mobile screen time in in other countries, we earn a lower percentage of screen time due to lower penetration of our service. We earn consumer screen time both a mobile and television away from a very broad set of competitors. We compete with and lose to fortnight more than HBO. That's interesting fortnight's bigger competition than HBO is when YouTube went down globally a few minutes in October are viewing sign of spiked for that time. Can you imagine YouTube going down people saying, you know, what sign up for net flicks that just doesn't make sense? But I mean, they have the data. So I guess it. It actually happened. Yeah. That's weird. Like, a weird knee-jerk reaction. But yeah, Hulu is small compared to YouTube for viewing time, and they are successful in the US, but non-existent in Canada, which creates a comparison point our penetration in the two countries is.

Donald Trump wanted to create the space forces like the sixth branch of the military Corrales gonna get you know, the lead part in this sort of parody comedy. And if they could stay away from like, the political bashing Trump stuff then. Yeah, I I definitely would would watch it. I still watch the office on net flix and to be able to capitalize on Steve Carell, and in another character that he would create with is is probably pretty good idea. Netflix do you. Honestly think they can stay away from the Trump back don't mind ribbing, the idea of space force or parodying or even having lighthearted fun with the administration. It's it's the the mean-spirited like Alec Baldwin Saturday Night Live stuff that I. I don't like shoved down my throat. The other thing about net. Flicks. Is yet the raising the rates of bunch like eighteen percent. I just saw I saw something that I would kind of blew me away. Actually that that Martin Scorsese's new movie, the Irishman with Robert de Niro, and Al Pacino Joe Pesci. That's that's going to be released on the net flicks platform, that's not going to be out in theaters. I thought that was kind of odd because I thought Martin Scorsese had the the kind of Nain kind of spa if you will to be still be a draw in the movie theaters, people going out and spending the money in the theaters its course AC for God's sake. But I mean, that's the day and age we live in. I guess I mean they've got the big stars that are signed to net flicks. I think Sandra Bullock is still a pretty big star. Maybe she's not what she was five six seven years ago. Or maybe those guys I mentioned aren't what they were a decade two decades ago. Adam Sandler, it's got an exclusive net flicks. The very the the fact that it's Scorsese, and he's had so many amazing movies that he's going to just it's going to go straight to your TV. And you're not it's not video.

But I this is definitely my, you know, top ten most. Trailer. It's just a a weird Dabo gang version of a family. You know, doing crazy things to the real family. I'm much nobody. Like, it doesn't seem like it seem it just seems like a normal horror movie in for some reason. And I'm not saying normal horror movies bad. Chris I just for some reason was expecting you better. Be. I don't know Jordan Peele. I was expecting that. There's something more to it. And maybe there is maybe there I see what you're saying. But I do think trailer is deliberately being vague getting away the bigger things are happening. I think there's a extreme possibility. You're right. Okay. One here. I think I'll maybe is first trailer. Maybe the best trailer I've ever seen and that has gone selecting the monsters. Yes. Yes. I know like this will be looks incredible HT. Chris Ben I want to hear from you guys on this list. Yes. It is for me that that first trailer the one they should accommodate on made me cry. And that's something. I'd never have done over Godzilla.
