"I remember everybody else's show and their answers. I mean it's crazy you. It's an out of body experience. It really is that's true. I'll just jump in real quick on that. I had the same experience i couldn't. I couldn't have told you with confidence. I think single question from our around that that anybody else got that. I got that i got wrong that i got right because it just it just all all melded together but i think part of that is a function of to some extent. You just kind of locked in. And that's how i felt during our game was just like i was. I was shaken for the very first segment before the first break before i am interviewed us did the sort of getting to know us questions. My hand was shaking and once that break was over once we had gone through the answering the questions for whatever reason deep breath okay and now here we go and at that point i was i was so there and so present for the rest of it that i just was not. I wasn't registering anything. I wasn't making any memories of it. I think honestly and so. I was very anxious to see the tape. The the recording one when it finally aired just too so that i can see what happened. I didn't that i'd gotten one wrong. I would've. I think i would have told you not confidently but i i think i got a i think i got all of the ones i answered correct. I was it that was wrong. I had missed the very first one that came up.

"Snake but as you point out they heard he was dead but also very bizarre circumstances everyone who says to snake. I heard you a dead in some form or fashion. There's cabbie their season humbly. The girl in chopped a to is who is married. She's hardly was married to kurt russell at the time and it was her first role after giving birth to their son believes names. Boston russell and john carpenter was married to adrian. Barbosa at the time. But it's a cabbie girl in chocolate. Nuts maggie the duke brain all say that the snake everyone who says i heard you were dead to snake in the film. They all die. Yeah that's right and as talked about before the naming of other directors in the film frank doubleday romero for judge. John strobl as dr koenigsberg. For david cronenberg. John unger as snakes partner deleted scene as they said. Steak is a stand in for john. Carpenter though debra hill the producer says that snakes both really russell carpenter and that they are the two sides of pushkin and then there's hodges or references westerns at its core as i said before this is very much western is specifically spaghetti. Western lee van. Cleef absolutely samantha. Spaghetti westerns or more cynical than most american is. The world's danger always a dangerous place in all alliances are for monetary or survival reasons. Only and that's certainly the case this film you can never trust anyone anyone in spaghetti western because typically as soon as one person is any kind of advantage they take an. That's also president. This film and snake is an anarchist and very much. An anti hero. Spaghetti westerns here. And i love that. And they're also complete unapologetic about that. Also i know that kurt russell channel clint eastwood for snakes voice because he thought it would be a riff on the interaction between vanclief and be reminiscent of their roles and like such for a few dollars more. Good the bad and the ugly He says in the audio commentary that they decided it would be fun to do it. A bit like eastwood that eastwood eastwood voice quality since they had leave cleave carpenter also goes on to say in a kind of resonates. Sergio leoni pictures here and in the future and when maggie when they going to get the say the president for their own means brain and maggie and brain uses the knife and kills romero. A what is it. A great fucking death by. Yeah it's kind of i. I kind of forgot about that. So yeah because. I saw the movie so long ago. It was kind of shocking. You didn't. I didn't think the brain had it in them. No no it's it's funny because he seems to be fine with the knife he just doesn't like guns and there's actually spaghetti western specifically for a character like that the character is called ca- chico and he only which is spanish for knife and he has a spaghetti western standoff in the big gunned down and run man run the sequel where he just uses knife so kinda still all these things bounce around my hand with..

"And those are just two don siegel directed by don siegel in the same year. I know what you think. The fires six shots so only five tell you the truth and all this excitement i kind of lost track myself but the forty four magnum the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off. Get to ask yourself one question. Do i feel lucky. do you punk. And if dirty harry is all these potency as exemplified by that big gun you know the point to everybody feel lucky You know make day gun mean the beguiled is about and being castrated you know. He's sort of systematically splayed out cut up his his his legs cut off a man in a hot hothouse women and again the narcissism of every woman in the civil war era wants to jump clint. Which fair enough it gets leveraged against his humiliation is complete humiliation and come up and defeat. You know i mean. It's a movie where he really never kind of has the upper hand and the whole film in the beguiled is kind of the spectacle of his. You know his abasement. And that's why when coppola remade it. She sophie a couple of remakes. The guy with a lot of smarts. And a lotta hindsight and a lot of skill and a clear subversive agenda and colin. Farrell's a great actor in some ways. More resourceful after the it but it doesn't work it only works. If it's clint on the table you know even before. It's like late clinton in nineteen seventy-one dirty harry. It's taken apart and killed by a bunch of women is Pretty amazing even pairing with play misty for me in the same year. There's a woman who wants to cut. Clint eastwood up. And in terms of segel's filmmaking the guy was just a a pro. there's a reason that eastwood co dedicated unforgiven to him an sergio. Leoni siegel is simple. Where is florid you know siegel is left to right leonis all detours loggers and whatever else but He taught you know quinta lot. He used him as a star but as well as any as any filmmaker did. And i'm pretty sure everyone listening to this. Podcast seen dirty harry. If you haven't seen the beguiled. I don't know what's service it's on but it's amazing and You should watch it. Now pray film. I like the coppola remake as well. Actually it's a little bit of a subversion of the story but not too much Chris why don't you give us your number three which is also in the nineties cannon. Yeah and it's probably. I mean along with unforgiven. My my real life kind of introduction to clint eastwood was in the line of fire which is directed by wolfgang petersen. And i think is the best acting eastwood's overdone. Maybe it's kind of silly. And maybe. I'm giving malkovich way too much credit in my mind but i like when i last watched this movie i was rather blown away by the gentleness of eastwood's performance. This is a broken down. Secret service.

"Western always been popular. And here you can see them for free and one was successful than to i mean you had cheyenne and maverick and gun smoke. And then everybody wanted to get into the western television series market nine thousand nine hundred fifty seven fifty eight tv series. Ten new westerns premier while in primetime in addition to the westerns that were already on the air now. The people who were making westerns for the big screen. I think it behooved them to maybe provide something different. Something edgier look at what john ford did with the searchers. You've got the character played by john wayne who you know. Maybe ten years earlier would be presented as an unblemished untarnished hero and is pretty obvious. The guy is a racist borderline psychopath. You'd think maybe there's a chance we still might find engine jason. Thanks thanks he's chased in quits. Same way when he runs. Seems like he never learns. There's such a thing as a critter. Just keep coming on. We'll find him in the end. I promise you and that's where it all went because then suddenly you have the spaghetti westerns. The sergio leoni films and clint eastwood is the man with no name and that that's a completely different universe. Isn't it oh definitely. I don't know if he was actually stated s such in the production code but it used to be frowned upon us to be discouraged for you ever show in the same frame person shooting a gun and the person falling down dead or being wounded. I mean you'd you'd see somebody's shooting and then you'd cut to somebody falling down well man with no name an early scene of fistful of dollars. Guns down what four five people and right in the same frame it three coffins ready. I saw the whole thing. You'll kill all the spaghetti westerns had nominal heroes and they were the heroes only because the bad guys were really really bad. Guys shooting people in the back and going after bad guys not because it was the right thing to do but hey there was a sizeable bounty to be collected on these bad guys. Dead or alive preferably dead. Because it'd be a lot less trouble that way. I've right cowboys and indians magazine contributing editor and quite often. We'll get people writing in or posting on our facebook page talking about the good old days westerns. They wanna see an old fashioned western. And you know. God bless these people because they buy the magazine. But they're thinking of a type of movie that really hasn't been around since the mid sixties when and. Why did westerns fall out of favour. Day became something else. My memory fails me now but who said but what is the private eye but cowboy hero. Who got off his horse and walked into town and put on a suit. What is the space opera. What is the science fiction saga but a cowboy in the space suit. Are there any westerns. Actually set in the old west movies have been made in the last twenty thirty years that you think you could put up against classics like stagecoach. Shore the searchers or high noon or or rio bravo open range. How long we've been read together joining ten years to call it. Call it a decade longtime been allowed to change in san open. Rage is a classic western kevin. Costner robert duvall facing the bad guys in the climactic gunbattle. That is right out of the. Ok corral playbook many people. i can't say i'm one of them. But many people point to tombstone as being if not the last great western than certainly a western that rates comparison to the great western's of your johnny ringo. Like somebody just walked over your grave with you holiday. I beg to differ sir. We started the game. We never got to finish playful blood. Remember i was just fooling about. I wasn't and the funny thing is every so often someone will try to make a western. And they'll actually be quite successful but oddly enough they don't really spun a host of imitators for whatever reasons i mean. Look at true grit. The remake of true grit grossed something like two hundred fifty million dollars worldwide on a budget of less than forty million. Well why aren't we seen true. Grit two. What is your intention rooster. You think one on the dog fall in one minute man and judge parker's convenient. Which will you go. Talk for batman. The idea of the cowboy hero who stands alone stands up for what's right who adheres. Two's own moral code. Is something infinitely an enduringly appealing about the myth of the loner hero. Who anytime he wants can put all of his belongings into a saddlebag but the saddlebag on his horse and ride off to the next town ride off to the next horizon. Just reinvent himself somewhere as long as we're all hardwired with that.

"Maybe in about twenty days. I what had happened was it was an odd thing because you know sometimes there's an actor you'll be riding around in their car something and you'll you'll think of like i. It's still just thinking of yourself as an actor. You think like you know the good to do a scene like i do like like this type of same okay. And then like a month later you'll driving along and say it'd be good if i had this well. What happened was over the years of doing that. I wound up with twenty five to thirty scenes in my brain that were not connected but what occurred to me why to my wife was. I knew that i was a through line that i had the manufacturer but it was easy to do because i had the scenes already in it was just a matter of transforming it into a structure. And that's what happened. So i i wrote one day for about twenty days and i had myself a first play fortunately A woman named judy cho bajaj. I i went to college without the ucla with her and she was a literary agent. So when i finished that. I didn't really know what to do with it. Except that i knew she was a literary agent than i'd known her since i was like eighteen years old so i called her so she got it so anyway be sent it out. This is like a really an amazing thing in my brain. That had happened this way. But it just shows you. How things can happen. The first meeting. That i have is with somebody who's leaving company. A big company. He was leaving a big company but had read my script and said come on over and talk before i leave and what happened was the option that the next day so that was the beginning of it. All it was it was it was like one meeting. I had in order to get everything rolling which is like on artem really windy. Think about it because it just it just showed me that i can do this. Okay and i was. I wrote it for me to play the lead. And i. I was looking at direct at that time but His name was david breaker and it was just like one of amazing things that happened. And that was the beginning and for me so so i wrote And then i wrote when i once i That was option. We were moving around quite a bit There was a huge amount of interest because what caught people's attention was the in in in those days. Now It's not that way because Because of quentin tarantino started writing movies. That were very violent. And funny. I was i did this in nineteen eighty six okay and it was very violent and very funny. Why did quentin. And i both feel the things when we started writing is because we were both really really interested and we were enamored of sergio leoni and that was the the the frame of reference i think in both of our brain that you could get away with having a very funny movie. That's very violent. No-one really done that before. So we sergio leoni too. You know so. I knew that i could do it with my sense of humor which is different than sergio. Yonis interview over different than gwen tarantino sense of humor. But i knew that i could do it and it works. That's what caught everybody's attention. So then i wrote a thing called trigger-happy which eventually became then khan and that was nineteen eighty seven so i started writing. That and i took a little bit longer to do that. One not because. I just felt like well wait a second. I'm i made good on my bombers of my life here as i could I could do this. And so i took a little bit more time for each of the sequences and then david reeker again. He optioned the right away and what happened so that was eighty seven. We don't make a lot of people wanted the script so you know. That's that's what happened between eighty seven and Ninety five what happened in ninety five though was i. I gave the script to richard dreyfuss went to college. I mean we went to We went to in beverly hills high school together and we drove graduated high school. We we drove across the country together to new york and we agree. We're we're gonna make movies together. That was it. You know when i started writing these scripts. I said remember that when we were driving across country you know and in nineteen sixty five is. We're going to make movies. Here's here's wonder we can make that read it. And he gave it to his his producing corner who is due to the james and she did something that the others didn't do the ones that had either option to or or I just had a huge honor people coming at me to do all these scripts you know that i was writing so but she said it. You let me have this grim. We will be in pre-production in ninety days so that was something that no one else had said. Because because by the time it's ninety four ninety five I just wanted to get the movies made now okay. So that's what she said. I said okay you gotta deal. That's that's how that came about. We were in reproduction in ninety days. So that and then we We made the movie very inexpensively for about five million dollars. Okay if if a studio it put together the movie with the cast. That i had done it would have cost them about thirty five to forty million dollars but what happened was richard dreyfuss said to me. He said look. I'll do it for points. Forget about my salary salaries we're gonna we're gonna we're gonna wind up making you know fifty million dollar movie here. I'll do it for points and we'll keep the since he's producing with with judah. Jane's we'll we'll be able to keep the cost of this down but what happened was when. He said that he would do it for points. Then everybody that i went to gabriel byrne's of goldblum mellon bargain down. They also they do it for points so i. So that's how that movie got done for like you know a little bit. More than five million dollars is everybody decided to do it for points. Instead of getting their usual salary drive. Those was gonna getting like seventy. I saw him turned down movies when we were in. The production offices was starting that movies where they offering him seven million dollars just to make the movie for him you know and then jeff goldblum was hot. They were they were all making millions of dollars all of them every single one of them. So that's why. I was able to keep them the budget down. On unmanned time e touchback christopher jones is great to see him. It's great to see. Richard pryor again. It was just. It was great to have that but then so it's like a who's who of everybody. How did you manage it. Billy idol of all people. Some of the people. I knew and they immediately signed on to do something. I knew. richard pryor. I knew rob reiner. My father's signed up to do. Although he was tough this they got my father. Was the office phone to get it is. There was a thing that i wanted him to do. Along with richard pryor. I wanted the symbols of death. Meaning richard pryor plays jimmy the grave digger re my father plays mr godly. Who owns the mortuary. I wanted them to have the the two that are known as comedians. Who aren't going to say anything funny in the movie. It's just but it it comes off you know here's a let me say something that i don't think i've ever i've said this yet but anybody but when i met richard dreyfuss beverly hills high school we were both fifteen years old and when he sat down to me he sat down next to me in an auditorium.

"Be brought in for that in the same costume was one of our main care to be shot for the waste. It is it was one of the most insane. Dave and i was like. How does somebody get cast. Do they beat out other people for the part. I think there's a there's a. There's an avenue that you go down where people may want to to do that. And and jump into that world and the person that we did ask to do that did ask us if we could If you could crash at our house because he needs to be. He didn't have a place to say that night so that was. That was an interesting moment. Just talking about this like realism. White lotus is not gritty in the way it looks but it is like i feel like it gets to these relationships that are a little bit more uncomfortable in real. I wanted to talk about these movies that you wanted to blast off into outer space to save the the best movies that you love the most and amy. Why don't you bring us into maybe set the stage a little bit. I will i. Will i think the first thing i want to ask is like when you send us your list of movies. I suddenly felt like a ha. I have a real insight into your soul yupik three movies. They all come out in the span of five years. You weren't really conscious for these years. You really a baby when they start coming out. Movies are often like nineteen sixty eight to nineteen seventy three. And i want to ask just as like an opening question. How did you get into like the movies of the late sixties and seventies like win win in your life or you introduced to them. I think it was gone. I mean i. I was kind of an interesting kid. I mean a big history buff. I remember watching like these epic westerns with my dad. You know i remember going to the cedar to sec- midway he worked he worked on university on friday nights. Bring home a projector. We'd watched laurel and heart. These nights saw in. These are movies that this is before. I knew the strings attached. He's the stories where i believed it where i trick worked right and then movies out. You know it's it spoils it somewhat when you're as as somebody you know the more experience you get the more. I want to pick up a book and read so fay watch a movie. It's like listening to an album. You know yeah. I wanna watch once upon a time on the west. Once upon a time in the west is one of the epic spaghetti westerns directed by sergio leoni. It comes out in nineteen sixty eight and it stars amid. We've talked about with great rupture in here. As america's hero henry fonda we of course from twelve angry men grapes of wrath here being the villain who is trying to dominate. All of the water rights in a small small small town and must battle charles bronson and jason robards and cutting cutting out and he was doing to score by any more guts. Tyndall says phone. What is it about that movie. Is everything on your list brilliant movie. I mean it's descript be like twenty pages long you know. I think surgery leona he. He's like he's a master at lake. Which estranges is italian guy. Who's a master at telling telling the american you know. Yeah this the story. That's retold over and over again. Why do we like westerns. Does the world like westerns. You know it's the same story. Basically and he hit construction like a like. He's doing an opera. I mean every character has their own their own score. You know it every shot. It's either it's either. These epic just takes all day to figure out how to do it like that. Here's a shot near that pans. Where she comes. She comes to at the beginning of the movie. kinda goes. There's no one there to pick her up and she goes through the building each box out. The camera goes up. And you go above the above the building and it just reveals this town being built by you know. There's five hundred people in courses in about now. Wait you spoke. Just shoot a bunch of stuff. We'll figure it out and post and all be. Cgi to write. It will just be like we can build a giant city. And and you're right. There's something like really real about this. I feel like that all the time when you see actual buildings real puppets or yeah creatures can identify with not just like these big. Cgi things that just feel So wide and so vast and not you know the giant crowd scenes. But i will say that. This is an interesting movie because leoni kind of affectively retires for making westerns. And then it's kind of pull back in to make this. I feel like in a way. This is his swansong to do everything that there had to be a reason for him to come back. You know besides just the money But yeah i feel like this movie definitely feels like what you're saying this opera. That's very different than the spaghetti westerns. I think that most people recognize him for day. Yeah extremely it's very different. Yeah just first. Ten minutes of that movie is just brilliant. Brilliant there's not. there's not a word spoken. there's one guy that talks like the old guy that'll be mean twenty five years mike berry. Tv you know and everything is like everything is doug all looked home. Righty is another insane. thank we'll know. I guess the other thing about is like this movie is a flop when it comes out and and you and then it kind of goes back we always are talking about this and we can't quite figure it out and wondering if you have any opinions on this as well what do you think it is. Where a movie like. This is not getting recognized in the moment. Is it just because it's a ahead of its time or people were. They have their own preconceived notions. This is one. That's really interesting because you feel like. Oh we're going to go see a surge leeann movie here we go. We're but it just it any. It's long but i don't think that that's the reason why i don't think that's the reason why it's a flop when it comes eight. Yeah it's very. It's very interesting how something comes out. It's new and we need to say something about it right now and there's no you know we're going to review this three years once stand everybody's hurdle that week. Yeah you know if it's air something else that came out that we're not even thinking about a month before or you know there's a political thing going on. I don't know. I think that does happen all the time as i feel like i see that happened all the time like when movie comes out. That's vaguely similar to another movie in the course of winsome like i'm so sick of this cliche in the second film never gets the fair shake we talked about this earlier versus the show but when the wizard of oz came out. Everybody just thought it was a snow white in seven doors claude. And we'd never think of that today. But at the time every critic was grumbling about it like you got your little things and he got people singing and it was just to them the same movie it was just rip off. Yeah it's like it's like in more recent like you know. Saving private ryan comes out and then and then and.

Oh it's european so they've they've got to be white and then they're just telling on themselves for their own assumptions about what people in europe or european fantasy should look like.

Keenan thompson nominated for outstanding. Lead actor in a comedy series for the his debut sitcom canaan but also nominated for outstanding supporting actor uncommon comedy series of for his work on saturday night live. Is that a fun tidbit. it's cool. He's nominated in both lead actor and supporting actor. That is cool. I do love me some keenan thompson into the belt time. I'm glad his sitcom. I have not watched it. Glad it's some recognition because it's always a little dicey when a saturday night live. Alum gets their own sitcom i mean. I can't think of a single circumstance which that hasn't worked out today comedy series.

And that one your top three Once upon a time in the West 1968. That was the first movie her Sergio Leoni made after the dollars trilogy. Um, minus his signature star Charles Bronson plays a gun slinger known only as harmonica. I don't think you want to know why he plays an instrument. I'll give you a guess who's locked into a battle of wills with Frank Henry Fonda merciless hired gun with whom harmonica has a mysterious history. Henry Fonda merciless hired gun to losing out on the number one slot only because I think it's newer Unforgiven 1992. I mean, that's on the shortlist of great greatest movies a short time.

I was so happy ero series like you. Gogo. Because at first I was worried she was Kinda cave in and if he was going to walk away with compound the and that would have been that because I actually thought to myself how can she possibly? Going to respond to his threat because my I was either she's GonNa incinerates him but he's too fast for that or she's going to have to come up with something clever in with. Trump what he said and she did and I was so impressed and I was so happy and the fact that she didn't casually walks up to him takes the vial back and he leaves this with his tail between his legs. So I thought I was very proud of Al. Ghul, right there was definitely, very happy. Essentially resulted in stalemate. Where they both know something about the other, but they're not really in a position to do anything about it just yet. So it's kind of like a to be continued.

"Because it's only about fifteen years old and eh it was made with such integrity. I mean I'm not the biggest. What's his name Fan Cement as. I'm not a big Fan of his but that movie's pretty good. Yeah yeah absolutely you. You know what's funny. I actually the other ones of course but I did not realize road to perdition was one of those Based on a graphic novel or whatever kind of movies Yeah Yeah Ninety Eight. Sure I've got the right. Yeah you know it probably is. You're you're probably right. I just didn't know that But yeah you know just I kind of just piggyback off of that I actually did have combined Cincinnati and Dick Tracy and I think that speaks takes a little bit too Edward Norton's direction. Just the fact that Ed at times the movie does start to veer into cartoonish you know and and he he definitely kind of course corrects in the direction of feeling more real at times and then it Kinda bounces back into a little more cartoonish and you don't when it is though it definitely has that cartoon feel Kinda has I would certainly go a little more than city you know direction into Tracy but I had it on my list just as well though. Yeah you know. He's always been an actor who hasn't been afraid to be like Bold and cartoonish. I mean you even talk about you. KNOW DEBTS MUCCI even American early history in its own way You know I mean He. I mean Edward Norton for better or worse is one of the fucking hulks in being like. He's I do appreciate that about him that he's that he's he's not afraid to go there and I mean a lot of that work. Does Wes Anderson to these are big bold kind of choices But he doesn't really I don't I think he knows how to make them Gel. Like those makers do like Danny de Vito or Wes Anderson. You know absolutely but yeah you know Dick Tracy like it's I don't know like that. That puzzle pieces better. Saved fucking Irishman. Like no like. It's so sanit next last weekend. Finally it's so funny. How many people walk out of that movie and or the my friends who've seen posting online talking about Dick Tracy afterward it's like yeah I mean he is just playing fucking looking big boy caprice up on boy? It's now man. I hope you like it. I you know I I'm going. I have three and a half hour set aside red bull going to see this damn movie and we'll we'll see what happens Well what do you have your next puzzle piece. All right my next puzzle piece I have is once upon a time in America. All right. The the Sergio Leoni Bobby Deniro. Movie I actually just saw that move fairly recently. I saw a couple of months ago. They played it here at the Egyptians options. I got to see the four hour and ten minute long. Cut on Y- yeah it was pretty. It was pretty miserable I don't know if you've ever seen the film but the main can't have not. Yeah it's it's it's you know it's a period piece it's about you know This this boy coming up in in In New York rising to power as a gangster He and his street thug buddy. It's him and James Woods in the movie. The the first hour of the Bubis brilliant. It's when their kids And then Bobby de Niro goes to prison and then when he gets out there all grownups and in the time that the he's been in prison James Woods and all his other friends have ascended to power and Deniro comes out and he Prison teams up with them and they kind of run the city together for a while but then like they're backstabbing. Gets to one another and like Robert Deniro has an opium addiction in film and And I just felt like this movie aesthetically most Brooklyn Aesthetically takes a lot from Once upon a time in America but also just that idea of like a You know elite character with a bit of a a a drug addiction more than you know an alcohol thing and Sure and also somebody who's more part of something and then the the actual head of it So he's always out of his element and then the film in the end in once upon a time in America it actually James Woods you you find out ascended to power by making political deals you know dealing with the helping out the unions and stuff like that and by the end of the film. He's betraying He's trying to get Robert Deniro to help him. pull off this political assassination You know because he oh it so again with that political theme why isn't the no ars and political thrillers always seem to collide. Yeah I get. I guess he got big guys in suits with cigars and stuff. So kinda just fits you know. Sounds like governor me. Yeah I mean I. I don't know that I would recommend once upon a time in America to you but You know I mean if you're a complete EST just when it comes to make sure I like motherless Brooklyn what's your liking this movie more and more as you talk about it yeah I know it's funny because I made one but I made one because I don't like him right right. So do I wanted to dig in a little bit to be fair. I think I like motherless this Brooklyn more only because it's half a length. There wasn't intermission during the four hour and ten minute run time once upon a time in America and I'm not making this up. The intermission came at the a two hour. And fifteen minute mark. Wow Yes yes. Oh yeah that would definitely be necessary at that point. She's she's Irish onto well. I will go with another puzzle piece to movie. I did not like very much but also written directed and starring someone who made it as like a big Kinda almost passion project kind of thing is live by night From Ben Affleck. Yeah you got to do my boy like that. Are you a fan of live by. I forget if we've talked about this. HAIL WELL NO I. Yeah he's been AFLAC fan on the planet like it's like in fact about me but That movie I saw test screening of it all more than a year before it came amount when they ask for my my my card at the end with the little survey I told him. You don't want it. Yeah I I completely agree I I actually. That was one of the biggest boomers I'd say of the past decade for me like it was. Yeah that the movie because he was on such a fucking role just some great great great great stuff in that movie. Just look but but yeah I mean. I'm sure you could tell though you know where where I'm coming from with that description of using it as a puzzle piece and as a matter of fact now they think about it. I used it as a puzzle. Piece when talking about widows Back back two thousand eighteen. Apparently you're GONNA say uses a puzzle piece of and talking about Terminator now. So they really care about that one. Yeah well when I saw it it didn't it didn't have CGI. So here's the thing. When I saw at the beginning of the movie Ben Affleck supposed to be nineteen and I was like what like some watch really like what? And it wouldn't have made any more sense well. And then when he's like walking around these suits. He was bulked up for Batman as he looks like a dumb ass in these suits like they don't Fit Him well they look but then apparently I've never seen the final version But my buddy was telling me that because he saw both he sought with me that night and then he saw when it came out that apparently they digitally de Aged Ben Affleck at the beginning and that and they actually digitally slimmed him down the entire movie. Wow I didn't even even like realized that they had to do that and I asked him what they changed between what I saw on the final cut and he said the biggest thing that changes they all all but completely cut out Sienna Miller's part which that's okay They could have cut the whole movie if you ask me poorly speak of like talk about a vanity project. I mean mean it to write and direct. You know yourself and then to slim yourself down. I mean. Obviously they had to because Obama but I mean like on paper will well you know and then you've got the whole like like motherless Brooklyn you have the you know the mixed couple you know dynamic But I remember being so like laughably laughably offended by how dumb the ending of live by night was how like. She starts out Zoe Saldana she starts out in. That film is like she's running the business initi- knows her shit she doesn't put up with anybody's bullshit and then as soon as they get married she becomes like just his servant. She forgot all about that. I remember birth thinking how terrible that was two and then at the very end when like you know old. What's named Cooper comes around? And like firing his gun crazy fucking POPs her in the head and kills her and and then like Ben Affleck voiceovers like her death was my punishment for my sense of what howling fucking like insane of you to say. They know she was a person her death was your punishment. Fuck you like you Mike. kyw almost feel bad for bringing up. It's been it was going to catch up with them eventually. Because he's another one of those directors actors turned director. Who do I wouldn't put him in the category? Great no offense to him. I love him to death. I would put them in the category of good and and I feel like even argo. Oh I feel like he was doing a good run of just making movies. He wasn't making films he was making movies. You know and I think live by night was his going like now. I make films and we'll go. No you don't know stick with the town Bob. Well what do you got next next. Okay this one. I don't know if it's the it's called Kansas City. It's a the Robert Altman film from the nineties with the Dermot Mulroney and Jennifer. Jason Leigh IT'S A. It's a absolutely brilliant film. Have you heard of it. I have not no. It's in the war and it's about a It's a Harry Belafonte is like the black gangsters prohibition-era right Dermal Rooney works for him. He's like an underling but he like knows he wants to rob him. Basically he wants to rob his boss so he and his buddy put on black face and rob his boss's car are but like the like of course Bellefonte figures out and they kidnap they kidnap Dermot Mulroney after he stash the money.

It's my recollection is though soundtrack to soundtrack fucking blows my mind every single time especially since to realize is it into you've seen it all like there was no music site. We'd see i'd track yeah so back. In the day. There was also the dollars trilogy and a couple of my favorite movies. I starred terence hill and bud spencer that with a trinity trinity trilogy will sort there was movies it was my name is trinity. My name is trinity. Trinity is still my name to really good actors terence hill and bud spencer you kind of comedy westerns away ad then there was the third one which was my name is still nobody no my name is nobody.

In all honesty. This is all speculation like you know how we have kind of an audio like when when i say western you can think of music that coincides with it right but that's just what we've been told that that's music to us with the weapons but i'm sure there was no banjo music guy on back there. There was a little bit but like badger crew into well. That'd be like a rare occurrence like every couple of months or so the area ongoing thing at the time yeah so yeah that was just an artist's artist's impression of what the west was like darn.

"sergio leoni" Discussed on Around the World in 80s Movies

"Just check it out at that website, quip stir dot net today. I'm going to be looking at the second part of our three part. Look into the Mad Max films. At least from the nineteen eighties, although the previous one was a nineteen Seventy-nine movie this one is in the nineteen eighties. The second film in the Mad Max trilogy. As it was known before Mad Max v road came out. It's called the road warriors from nineteen Eighty-one like the previous one. It is an R rated film does have strong violence route brief nudity, and some language run time is an hour and thirty five minutes Mel Gibson is the main star along with. Bruce, Spence a meal. Midi Mike Preston. Max v Vernon wells Virginia. Hey, and many others. George Miller returns as director. He contributes to the screenplay along with Terry Hayes, and Brian Hannett. Now, obviously, the road warrior is a follow up to the nineteen seventy nine film called Mad Max very simply it was called at the time Mad Max two in its initial release, in Australia, and many other countries where it had proved lucrative. However, in the United States, where the original was poorly distributed and barely seen by most American audiences. It was retitled to the road warrior primarily, because you would figure probably rightly that very few people would want to see a film called maks to if they've never even heard of Mad Max that alternate title of the road warrior has proven to take hold so that most countries call it by a more complete title mad Mex two colon the road warrior in order to avoid all confusion. However, being an American. I've always known this film, as the road warrior. So my apologies to those of you who are used to calling it Mad Max to this the same film. I just happened to call it by what I've always called it, there's narration here at the beginning, and end of this film at book, ends the road warrior it implies that, while all of this is set in a post apocalyptic future in which society's dependence on oil and other resources eventually leads to nuclear war, and the subsequent collapse of civilization, the events that we see in between the narration is set. Sometime in the past to the narration nevertheless, approximately five years after the events of Mad Max, which have set supposedly a few years into the future, no wife, no child, no job. No home. The road warrior fines, the titular hero, Mad Max himself just living from day to day with just his Australian cattle dog by his side in pursuit of scrounging up enough food, and enough gas to make it to the next instance of food and gas. Max's, wandering through the now lawless wasteland formerly known as Austrailia end up taking him to a fortified oil refinery, where there's plenty of precious fuel, but there's also a vicious gang of murdering marauders led by a hockey masked and muscle leader named Lord humongous. They wanna get their hands on that oil, and they give the residents and the ultimate him of imminent death, should they not comply with the demands of marauders, the colony at the oil refinery who were living there. They need to escape in a hurry. But they also want their fuel, and max strikes a bargain with them. He'll secure an abandoned big rig for them to haul their fuel in exchange for as much gas, as he can carry away in his car in the problem is that the marauders are not going to let anyone escape without a fight. That's the basic premise of this film. It's very simple premise, but there's so much more to the story then just the plot. I mean, this is a movie that is just a visceral experienced and sequels that are better than the original films. I would say are. Very few and very far between. But I do think that the road warrior is a prime example of one that is not only superior but it's almost without question for most people who see these two films back to back. It has a better story. It has more explosive action. It has crazier stunt work more, adept direction and more. Gorgeous cinematography and this time there is a score that actually enhances rather than detracts from the momentum of the film. It's a much more violent movie than the first one in terms of showing the actual violence on the screen. Interestingly, it was meant to be even more violent than what we see in the finished product because the Australian censors at the time requested at several of the more graphic acts had to be paired out in order to get released in the country, and in America, there were even a couple of more shots that were censored in order to get an amputee, A R rating. If you watch this video, you're probably seeing the more graphic Australian version, but the one that was completely well that version has never surfaced. At least not today. Date this film continues portraying max as an anti hero, perhaps, even more. So in this film, as he's no longer bound by his duty as a cop. And he's exceedingly reluctant, half the chew sides in this battle to come even though he clearly views, one side is good and one side as evil as with the original Mad, Max George Miller. Here is making his simple premise work by being edgy and unpredictable in the way that it carries out characters. Here are very fallible. Some that you think are slated to live by the end biting the dust before it's all over, and then there are few other surprises strewn about, although this is still a motor vehicle western in its story. George Miller hair takes less of a spaghetti, western stylistic approach than in his previous effort. He instead makes it more with traditional story elements from westerns like nineteen fifty three's Shane, especially in the feral kid character and in nineteen seventy five of boy, and his dog and on top of that he goes for more of the George Lucas, Steven Spielberg way of filming that was rampantly popular in the. Early nineteen eighties. He snatched, Lucas penchant for taking elements of a curious hours samurai films, something that Sergio Leoni had been enamored with as well for his westerns as well as his adherence to Joseph Campbell's hero's journey blueprint for storytelling. Injecting max into that basic formula. Miller was surprised to have learned how well the original Mad Max from nineteen Seventy-nine had translated to different languages and many cultures each of them who viewed the character of max through the lens of their own myths, and myth, making Miller felt that building upon that myth. That is common among us through Campbell's studies as developed in his the hero with thousand faces with only further the connection with people around the world to his character. Arc not only max but each character from humongous to the gyro captain, they would all have a rich backstory, develop that made them who they are by the time that we see them within the film, even though the backstory for each of these characters might never actually be explicitly expressed within the dialogue. The themes of the road warrior, encroach into well-trod western territory, mostly in the differential between communities who are striving for civilization and the uncivilized hord, complete with bows, and arrows, while the most notable one named Wes sports, a native American hairstyle known as the mohawk. They're out there in the untamed lands. They seek only to explain those who want to build up their way of life. This supposed good guys wear lots of white in contrast to the marauders, who are clad, mostly in black Mad Max being the exception of this rule because he's also dressed mostly in black. But he is the anti hero. These marauders are out there mostly to enrich themselves for the day. There's also a moment in this film in which the clan at the oil refinery are offered a bargain life and safety. If they just walk away and let them have their fuel a debate ends up erupting among the oil refinery, clan on the right path that they should go alternately. They decide to fight mostly because they realize that without a place to call home. They're going to end up no better than the marauders in the end. This is also implied by max. He's a former cop if you tack on continuity, with the first film anyway, who is now a do for self drifter, a of the spaghetti westerns that George Miller, sometimes uses as inspiration and the implications also extend to the leader of the villainous, gang Lord humongous, who rationalize is that his cutthroat way of life is the only way to survive now. And that they've all lost someone they loved to the scourge of anarchy originally humongous was meant to be revealed as goose from the first Mad Max film Mexicali on the police force, who would at least in that interpretation have completely surrendered, to the scum that he wants to down as an MFA P officer. However Miller eventually decided against explaining the origins of humongous explicitly on the screen by contrast, the leader of the oil refinery, clan Papa Gallo Papa Gallo being the Italian word for parrot. He also says that they've lost a lot to just like them. Marauders, but they are still human beings. They have dignity the only difference between them and the garbage outside as Papa Gallo says, is that they have not given up now as for Spielberg style alluded to earlier, the road were and raiders of the lost ark, which came out the same year. Feel very similar in the way that they're shot with these zooming close ups both films. Also feature extended battle sequence for control of a large, truck, although Miller's film, it's the main set piece of the climax, and that makes it the most important part of his films for Spielberg part. He liked George Miller's work in the road warriors so much that he ended up hiring him for his next production and that was directing the best arguably of the four stories four twilight zone. The movie nightmare at twenty thousand feet and ODA sequence. That trek siege Alta is with huge stakes for the film and for its characters with nail biting tension and intrigue, it culminates in one of the most memorable narrative turns and. Followed by one heck of an iconic shot of the battered hero as the film drifts off from its epilogue, not to create the look of a post apocalyptic world, the locale for filming would be this flyspeck town, about eight hundred miles west of city. It's mostly abandoned mining town called, Broken Hill, the mind that really established Broken Hill had been excavated of all the known or that could be extracted in that prompted most who live there to relocate to move away, for more employment or better way of life, the costs for shooting and staying there at Broken Hill, therefore was less expensive, although still the road warrior would end up becoming the most expensive Australian production to that date anyway. And the rundown nature of the mostly desolate environs fit in perfectly with the civilization on the decline nature of the story, as everyone was dressed in either punk rock, hairdos or fetishistic wardrobe. There were few around that would really question their appearance on an off the set especially as the town's REM. Meaning inhabitants actually worked in the road where as extras Mel Gibson here. He's as short hero as there has ever been boating. He only had sixteen lines of dialogue to utter. I would say the real star of the movie above and beyond. Just Mel Gibson is the stunt work, which is absolutely insane. It's really hard to believe Stumm in were not severely maimed or killed on the set on a daily basis given how dangerous and destructive. Many of these stunts looked to be. It's punctures and then some now it might be built on a thin comic book premise. But for all out action movie fans, it really does not get much more thrilling an exhilarating than the road warrior, George Miller when he was making the road warrior, really saw this as the end of Mad Max journey. He wanted to leave Mad Max his legacy as a drifter as unknown. But the financial success would see him return, several years later when semi adaptation of William Golding Lord of the flies following a group of kids who live in a post apocalyptic world the league. Miller's version that didn't pan out so Miller would eventually mold that screenplay into what would become Mad Max beyond thunderdome, George Miller would also revisit the road warriors structure, and its execution, again in Mad Max fury road, many years later, which is essentially a reinterpretation of the road warrior with higher production values. More pageantry and modern demotic underpinnings. It would also be proclaimed by some viewers as the best in this series and improbably even garnered an Academy Award nomination for best picture, as I mentioned in my previous episode, I am not going to discuss Mad Max for you wrote, it's way too far outside of the realm of the nineteen eighties. But I do encourage you to check out my podcast, the quick stir film, review podcast. There is a review of that, if you check through some of the older episodes, you will. Find it as far as what I'm giving the road warrior, I'm giving it three and a half stars out of four three and a half stars on my school means I do think this is a good movie. It's fantastic action picture. If you're of action. Fan, there's really probably nothing more exhilarating than watching the road warrior it is not with such great. I for cinema. Mel Gibson that is most appealing and it's just riveting from beginning to end. So I do encourage you to watch the road warrior, if you haven't seen it already. So three stars out of four is what I'm giving the road warrior. So obviously, I consider it the best of the Mad Max films. Even if you take into account Mad Max v road for a lot of reasons. But the next film, in this series is actually.

And I f- rewind that scene, and slowed it down, so many times, because it's just like dot dot dot dot dot dot dot A just fucking kills motherfuckers. It's so mazing and I'm going to on the groups as there because everyone can talk about equilibriums final gun seen being this orgasmic. Display, which it was. But that movie actually, what I take from it, and appreciate more from it. Is those small stints throughout the movie? There's a small gunplay battles. Oh, yeah. That lead up to the grandiose one. And like the smaller ones. I enjoyed more than the final battle personally. Yeah. I can see that in the for me watching the movie I enjoyed those more like the one you're describing like another, we're talking about where he gets stopped, and he's trying like to, like, not kill people. And then I just keep pursuing Got gotta a murder murder you. you. Right. You know, but insane gunfights. Let's go with. We brought on smoking aces. That's a fucking. Oh, yeah. Oh my God. That's they bring the firepower with that fucking movie. Right. Yes. They do. They really do there, there, isn't there like a rocket launcher, Sharon and other building or something. Yeah. That's just those kind of movies where they know it's not realistic. It's not dealing with physics at all. It's just gun porn gun. It's straight up and gun porn. And the way that's what it's supposed to be. It's not supposed to be serious. It's not supposed to be taken seriously. It's not supposed to be like, well, that's not how you he had thirty two shots on that clip. Yeah. He probably did because fucking this moving no second. One was not fun. I will say that I'd never saw the second one not really as much not care. It was a movie that did not need to sequel. No. Now, we can't talk gunfights without talking about doves. White doves. Oh, you're talking about. Yeah. Let's go do that was an inspiration for the smack my pitch up logo where it's dual wielded handguns with my face going. On. It was John woo. Because that was like, right. It's the spin gun like the hard boiled shits and then doves fucking does. I should've put doves in the smack my pitch logo as well. You go with your brand yourself. Number. That's true at never throw some doves in the background. So, yeah. As much as I love, John. Woo. You know, all of his movies early on Hong Kong. You know era. I have to say the killer, is my favorite killer is solid because the church shooting like violent scene is so goddamn fucking good. I can't even describe you mentioned the church and that reminded me of another gunfight. Well, one person with a gun from the Kingsman the church seen. Aw, orgasmic so hyper Connecticut, and, and just fast paced. But you're seeing every move. The choreography is absolutely fucking stellar. I am really smiling laughing. I'm right laugh. I'm spent after that scene. Yeah. So I'm done. I'm like, okay, I'm good for a few hours, like I can't. And he didn't golden circle when they're assaulting the mountain top layer that they totally missed them. By not being a inside of a volcano. But I mean at this point you're already on the top of mountaintop. Just make it a fucking volcano already, like, don't. Let's, let's just be real here, but the going circle missed. So I'm with you on the original one that church shooting scene. Yeah. On my but the suitcase rocket launcher and like it in golden circle. It's so utterly walking ridiculous. I loved it. Absolutely loved it. That was some moon raker shit. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. So it was it was just being like fuck. It try it. Let's go to shot. So good. Nice and other one that I know groups deeply appreciates to the point where this is the movie that you put on when setting up your surround sound because I've been there for two of the places you've moved into when setting up surround sound S V, and this is probably if not top of my list, at least top three of best gunfight scenes, ever, the Bank, heist scene in heat, that movie is, is so fucking amazing. But that particular scene is perfect for calibrating your surround sound system. Really? Oh, you how good that is where you can hear the you can hear the bullets fly by you kinda exactly it is. I mean, there's dialogue there's action. There's gunfighting that, that particular scene has been my go-to for three different like Saran like movie theater experiences that I've had in my life. It is perfect. It is so good. And that movie alone is fantastic. Heat man, the moment where where they shake hands at the end. Oh, is like this brilliant? Like they have absolute respect for each other. Like being the top of their thing they do. And they're murdered at murder. But they have absolute respect for each other. And and there's a where it shows like this wasn't personal. I actually respect you as a person. But you're on the other side for me. So this is where it is. And Henry Rollins gets Trump through a window. But it's not really him as a stunt man. But yeah, whatever surprising that for any rose. Be hard enough to do it himself. Yeah. Well, no, no probably not. I still love the guy. I just figured you use on his own, Jimmy James, you know what I'm saying? But, you know, I understand him not wanting to like good through a window. Also, we talked about BUSTER Scruggs. That was awesome. That yeah. There's some some route in tuten shooting that's happening in that in the first ten minutes. Yeah. So good merger. Shed a few people the tech the Texas tit. I mean movies consistent with gun playing. I mean, you've got the tin pan man. You know, you know. We tried throughout the Bank with James Franco, and he's like, oh, Pam shot, and Sean Penn shot and chat fucking, dude from office in Milton space. Yeah. Dan chaz. And then you I mean into the not the next one, what was the next one was the brother and sister that had the disease like he got the mumps or something on way to out whatever. But then the Tom waits one. There was guns involved in that, too, that wasn't really gun. Well, I guess technically, there was a fight of all that was some like it was a fight, and then, like Tom waits got shot. But he was like I dead. He's like. Yeah. Didn't know that important. She was so good. And that made me so happy. I was like, I'm so sad that Tommy's got killed like no wait a minute. He's alive. Now. One thing that actually involves one of the directors from John wick. The first Ron with booby at least is. He was originally a stunt double for Kiana Reeves on the matrix who will one of the director, the director of John wick gap. Wow. So that's where he got his start as, as a stuntman. So he's actually cannery stuntman. So that's why they had developed a pretty solid relationship as far back as the fucking matrix in what ninety nine when that came out that lobby gunfight seen the matrix is absolutely fucking fantastic. It is agree insane and over the top and ridiculous basements. There was even a reference to the matrix in John wick, or it was like, what do you need? I need a lot of guns, which was aligned from the fucking matrix. So you have a lot of MRs Mr. fight. Yeah. Perfect. But no, I mean. Yeah. You move like they'd be. I mean, come on, that the bullet time was started in the fucking matrix. The matrix started a lot of shit. Yeah. Be real to be real major started a lot of shit. Can we talk for a second about Sergio Leoni? Yes. We can. Because he set up the perfect, like gunfight standoff scene in the good the bad neo-greek. Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. I've been it's been recreated by so many fucking movies, never, duplicate it. Never. I mean definitely the dual scenes were in his first two movies. But like that scene with the music, everyone like, yeah, exactly Goldman, standing around on my God, fucking brilliant. And people wonder why Metallica still opens up to that God, damned score because it's fucking amazing is exactly like. I talked at length about that song on our westerns episode, which is like the, I think, less absolutely dropped in twenty seventeen. No, we did the westerns and last year. I thought that was twenty eight team. I don't know. I think it was all night, right? Feel like it was last year knows in December's that would have been late twenty seventeen. Wow. Yeah. Yeah. Okay, while ago. Yeah. But I mean. No that score is like definitive for any a really is. I mean anything involving western guns anything. Yeah, but that like that trifecta of people that hate each other that are trying to kill each other. And they're all, you know, like it's ultimate, like it's not a dual because not to people, it's a true. Right. I mean, I want to say real what gun fight, I thought stood out as a bad ads gonna fight was back to the future three. Now that we've talked about this at length before, especially on the audio commentary for the sequel, but boondock saints has some pretty memorable gunfight scene. Oh, yeah. And it and the one that I love is when you know, they're talking about what happened and Willem Dafoe there, while the firefight, and I'm one point with firing into the air, like randomly, like firing his fucking gun in the air, which to be the first. Because it was just so overly dramatic for the moment, where just came off his comedic is fucked. No, it was and see they tried to harp on that. And the sequel, which was see what didn't work because the first one just like did it and didn't know what it was doing. Yeah. Really? Honestly, like Duffy. The director. Yeah. No idea, we had a good movie on accident. Seriously? Though. That's the real ISM. Okay. Because the sequel new was supposed to be what it was supposed to be in. It was not good. Now fucking terrible at those. We made a comment. Yes. Yeah. There were supposed to be a third one too. I don't know. Let's maybe not do that. I think no read us to maybe Sean Patrick Flanery can come back. But norm rita's is to for that. He's like, I don't I don't I don't wanna do that. They don't really want to hurt my career. I go Walking Dead crit. I'm like the main character now Rick's go on bitch. Good gunfights Arabism, some solid fun gunfights in Walking Dead. That's true. There have been very really good gunfights in the world. And they're assaulting..

"He's written four G Q Sports Illustrated, and many others w k Kip straightens got a new book out. It's called the wild bunch Sam Peckinpah a revolution in Hollywood. And the making of a legendary film Guthrie's own w k Stratton joins us now. And I've always looked at this film, the wild bunch as a turning point in Hollywood. And the way they made westerns. They certainly started making them a lot more gritty after the wild bunch. Yeah. I I agree entirely. You know, sometimes I grew up and got three, you know. And oh, okay. And I and I had relatives who made the land around and all of that. And when I start thinking about what conditions must have been like in the in eighteen eighties war at the time of the wild bunch in the nineteen. It must have been extraordinarily harsh in terms of just dirty gritty difficult and a lot of bloodshed around. And I think that Sam Peckinpah really moved the whole genre in a in a progressive way. When he filmed the wild bunch as he did and made us look at things in a in a really realistic way. Not not like it was being portrayed on gunsmoke on TV. But what it wants to have been really like, do you think these genre of the western at the time nineteen sixty eight when the wild bunch came out needed to move on from the John Wayne era. Yeah. I think the western had gotten pretty stagnant by the mid nineteen sixties. Now, there were some interesting things going on with you know, Monte Hellman did a couple of interesting films the shooting and riding the whirlwind. And then of course, Sergio Leonis trilogy of pictures. He did with Clint Eastwood be called man with no name. Although in fact, he actually had a name and the hobos pictures, they they kind of foreshadowed the possibilities of what could be done. And I think that what Peckinpah did with the wild bunch. Is he created a real art film? It was it was a masterpiece recognized as such from the word go, and it also then took us into a much more realistic way of looking at the whole west. So that opened the door for a lot of revisionist westerns. They tend to be called the come afterwards that I think are. A really fascinating work in just point out the pictures that Clint Eastwood directed westerns between the outlaw Josey Wales. And then given you know, none of that could have happened had not picking on the wild bunch. I also that was my next question. We're talking to w k Stratton Kip strapping he's the author of the wild bunch Sam Peckinpah revolution in Hollywood. And the making of a legendary film he'll be at best of books on Thursday. Speaking and giving his imagine signing some copies of the book saying a Kip, but did the wild bunch did Sam Peckinpah did this reinvention of the western inspire Sergio Leone or was it the other way around? Well, it was it was the other way around. Socio Leoni was making his movies in Spain from Italy that making movies in Spain with German, money and half half English half. In in in Spanish, I are talian me each actor as they filmed spoke, his native voice, and then they just fixed all of that and looping later. But you know, he had seen certainly a fistful of dollars pick and Paul had by the time. He started the wild bunch, and he has gone on record as saying that influenced him because, you know, look, that's a pretty dirty film. People didn't take baths, very often. There was a lot of mud and dust. And if someone is talking in a fly landed on someone's face, you just kept filming because that's how it really was. So Leoni films. Certainly, I think influence Peckinpah in some regards. Now, they are they're very interesting movies. There are a little bit of a mixture of culture reality and ultra fantasy films, and whereas the wild bunch is completely realistic. No, no fantasy elements to it at all. If you didn't know the movie, the wild bunch came out in nineteen sixty eight and it had an all star cast William Holden Ernest borgnine, Edmond, O'Brien, Robert Ryan and kinda redefine the western as we know it, but the actors that did they get into this grit, while they were making this film. Did they realize they were really making a landmark film? Yes, they this was mostly filmed in a town called put her off, which is in the southern part of the Mexican state of Cohiba. And so it was remote now and even more so in nineteen sixty eight when they filmed this and Warren Oates, had a very interesting interview, saying, you know, we realized from the get yelled at something special was going on here, and in that remote setting these people, and I heard from cast member and and crew members that the actors actually became the wild bunch while they were down there, and they sort of living this out twenty four seven, and it certainly shows on on screen. It's guys like William Holden. For instance, his career was was trending downward pretty rapidly by by the time, he took the part for the wild bunch. And he gave such an extraordinary performance in this film as the lead that. It completely re energized his career made him relevant to the baby boomer audience. And you know, he went on to do some some very interesting pictures in the nineteen seventies and into eighties. So it it turned his career around Ernest. Borgnine had won an Academy Award in the nineteen fifties film called Marty. But he had most recently done Mikhail's navy the TV series before the wild bunch. So his he wasn't really being regarded as much of a serious actor in Hollywood at the time. But after the wild bunch is career changed again, and he started getting much better role. So it it really helped the actors who were involved kind of the second tier actor's worn owed struggle. Martin Ben Johnson. Our our hero from from the osage. You know, the real cowboy did wonders for their careers as well. Well, we look forward to seeing you in person w k Stratton at best of books.

"Is a safe to talking here, by the way. Yes. I know we're safe. Okay. I just I couldn't tell the padding on the room. I didn't wanna get BC's coming at me. All right. Well, so as receive here, the lovely loss ages film school, I guess the question is we guys formally trained. I know your high school friends from Iowa and you loved making films did a lot of short films. Did you go to film school? Our film school was meeting each other in middle school, and realizing we both had a lot of Star Wars action figures, and that we could make stop motion movies together that was kind of film school the best. Were you shooting on where you shooting on video? At that point. Then we evolved through digital. And like we fortunately were up that age where like digital editing. Digital camera. Equipment was starting really come into the mainstream. And so those tools were all at our disposal. And we're we're in the middle of Iowa. So you're sixteen hundred miles away from L A. You think film as a career is never going to happen? But for us, we just had this like, you know, naievety where we're like, we're just going to do it like we're just gonna make these films like higher local actors, and such and write these Iowa stories and just try to put them on screens awesome. I know that you're short films evolved, and there were two films that you made there were feature length there were student films her summer and the bride were blood. Tell us a Bill kind of what the experience was for you kind of gravitating into features because I respect the do it yourself nature of what you guys were doing because you got to kind of have a canvas to experiment on. Well, he's so much. I mean, it was you know, we made a lot of really terrible micro budget feature films when we were in middle school and high school. Well, and then eventually college, but what was cool is it? We kind of learned every single part of the process learned how to shoot around movies at it do sound design. We would premiere are features at the local max and handout like scorecards to the audience and have our. Labor's give us feedback. And they were always to polite. But, but you know, we were just trying to emulate our heroes. We were doing our best imitation of Paul Thomas Anderson, but we're in high school, so we have no life experience. You've got teenagers snorting fun dip off of off of a table. And and they do these days. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. So so that was that was kind of a process, you know, in in so bright where blood it was one of those. It was like a micro budget feature film in that case, it was it was spaghetti western modern day spaghetti western kind of based on our love of Sergio Leoni and certainly Tarantino and and and his films had huge influences on us at the time with kill Bill and just aping off of all of our heroes and learning how to make movies certain degree like that. That's specific early. Exercise was very much visual one where we're like the same way that surgery Leoni was so brilliant is you're telling stories usually without any dialogue whatsoever. And so that very much was us like trying to figure out how do you communicate, you know, your characters and your emotions through pure visual storytelling, but also through through the sound design to it's kind of a theme in our in our I guess our film appreciation, the the movies that we really love our tend to be visual cinematic experiences. One of our. Favorite movies? I curious if anyone here seen it is Gus van Sant, Jerry, which just it's a ban. All right. But it's it's two people in a desert walking, it's Casey Affleck and Matt Damon. And but it's so cinematic, and if you're onboard for it, and you go on the ride it's also a really beautiful and tragic foam. So we're always looking for those kinds of experiences and both of them were feature length. What did you shoot them on would? You edit them on. And we're we're almost getting too quiet place. I promise. Sure. Yeah. No. We we edited. Or were you shot it on the Panasonic Devi x one hundred rich at the time was like mind blowing emulate twenty four frames per second..

"Wait, like, it's not like the old dirty Harry version of many think everyone wants to see it. I think people thought like all grand jury. No, he's gonna go and to it. It's like it's like the dude bro version of we talked about with like Karen Kasama who director destroyer, and what Lynne Ramsay did in like you never really here. It's like adding a little bit of like a dramatic weight to it is, but it's like through his eyes and everything that we know of Clinton's. But I don't know. It's interesting that he I think is calling out the bullshit of of Hollywood like everything after his movies rejection of traditional Hollywood, it's true. And I will say like I one hundred percent do not feel. I'll guilty about taking the piss out of his films, but I do respect his discipline air and to me those are two separate channels of appreciation or criticism for what he does. I wonder how much of his de glamorization of the west comes from the fact that he was one of those people who was on John Wayne Speedo, we're John Wayne was like when he made win a Clinton aide, high plains drifter, John Wayne wrote him letter, and he was like that isn't what the west was about that isn't our American people who settled this country at I wonder if like there's a touch of clinics for being like, you can't tell me about America, you weren't even there either. Like, we're both just making this up. Well, and you know, what's great about Clint Eastwood is he subverts the tropes of the western right away in the beginning by creating the more violent western like, so John Wayne is doing these films where you can't show, you know, people getting shot on camera. He goes to Italy to work with Leoni Leoni doesn't know these rules. So he's showing bloody showing people get shot point blank range and Clint Eastwood's like I knew these rules, and I just didn't tell him because I thought it'd be more fun. So. Here. He is first subverting it in a way that we heard from John Wayne last week, you know, violence if it's not dignified. It's not good. So first of all he blows up the western just by like introducing violence, and then that character kind of carries over into Harry. And then he kinda wraps it all up at the end. You know, he kind of reinvents the western twice yell at I think would really surprise Sergio Leoni himself. It'd be like Leoni said this about Clint Eastwood he said that he has to expressions with or without ahead. That he would go forth in reshape the Jonah and reshape Dijon Ronan shape. The genera you I was playing his game. When I was rerouted and some of this movie. I was like, oh, I could imagine Kiana is giving this exact same line delivery for most of everything that Clint Eastwood does in the film, you know, because he doesn't tend to put any sort of emotion into his words, you just kind of corrects the volume a little bit, right? But that's also sort of who he is like, I mean, this is John wick again, we talk about the, you know, these these movies that are doing very well for us, the take ins and John wicks are plays on traditional western things in it. I would argue, you know, without the karate. There's a lot of similarities between John wick and William money, you know, to a certain degree. I just went to a guy who's living in this house. I'm done. I'm so done that I've buried my guns under something. Dad? Why? Yeah. No. I mean, don't I mean, there's a lot of there's a lot of stuff that you can see a direct line to to. But if you will forgive me, I do just want to play like at least a snippet of Clinton monologue to refresh ourselves as to how he gives lines in. Fame Ned Claudia. She's straight me up cleared me, drinking, whiskey and all. Just because we're going on this kill in that domain..
