"Like you will believe the way that i believe about the wander and power of story and he he. He believes his own his own shit to to his credit he is And he also fully understood the power brand building. He was kind of ahead of the curve in that way. You mentioned tarantino earlier the same way. The quentin has always had such a savvy sense of how to build his own identity in the world am nine. Shamlan is a genius this. He's a genius at when you see an m night shamlan film you know you're getting some very specific and i gotta give him credit for that. Even though i think you know it's it can be hit and miss at times before we go. Let's let's rank these movies okay. Now we didn't. We didn't talk about his first two films and those a very specific reason for that. But i don't want it to them to unsighted so in one thousand nine hundred years all. I've only seen one of the two. I've never seen praying with anger. Which is his student film that he made at nyu which is a a very again. A film about faith as most of his films are and then in nineteen ninety eight. He makes this kind of funny kind of strange. Not ultimately successful sort of drama called wideawake. There was shot ninety five and not released until ninety eight by miramax. Some people have seen it. Neither of those movies really got a wide release and they're not really widely available. You can rent them on amazon and whatnot. But let's stick to the court twelve so we've got twelve movies year from the six cents to old. Why don't we start at number twelve. What is by far the worst movie in the night. Shamlan world The lady in the water are we. Sure. it's not the last air bender. Are we sure It's a coin flip. I think to me. That's twelve and eleven to me am hold on. Let me give me an. We gotta go. Give me five seconds to think about this. I take time for man. I'll rock with you. it's everywhere you go. I i would say that. The lady in the water is less angering than the last. The air sucked and it was last. Area was a nail in the coffin. But just as a movie as a film itself lady. Water is worse. Two okay number. Twelve lady in the water. Yeah i like your. I like your point of view on that so that means less enter arab. Gotta be eleven very very very bad movie..

I actually cried out to movie theaters inside. Good movie The twist here in in old. It wasn't essential to me as it is to some of his other movies. It's not. I think. I think old asks a lot more questions Being as old as what is a life well lived and is it about time or is it about connection. And i think the twits doesn't do very much i mean it's good to know why they're not gonna ruin anything for anyone is good to know what's happening to these people and it's good to know why it's happening and ask a question in terms of Do the ends justify the means for something like that.

You're doing your so they're trying. they're trying all right. Let's over the opening opening. It's gonna start out with a rat and then it's kind of confusing because a homeless guy smashes a car window and i thought he was stealing like a musket out of the car but then all of a sudden he pulls out an umbrella and i was like wait. Why is this guy stealing an umbrella. Yeah and the settings weird because you can tell like we're in a studio apartment big ass like like. It's a quintessential like nineties. Artsy studio apartment fucking huge. So you assume you're like in new york or some shit but they're not surrounded by a bunch of other big buildings like it's almost like they're an abandoned warehouse almost where the fuck. I have no idea this took place. Maybe i missed it. But like i couldn't place it. I was trying to figure out like where they were geographically. And i was like i'm gonna assume the outskirts of new york but i also told know literally could be anywhere. Yeah i didn't even bother trying to figure out where they were. I was really confused. Why it start out with this homeless guy in general and why he was stealing an umbrella and at first. I was still questioning whether or not he did. Seal an umbrella. I was like. There's no way that's actually what he was doing. But then a chick like walks out and confirms that she's just like Yeah so that just broke the window of the car out there and stolen umbrella and she sounded just as confused was i was like okay..

"Where people were like trying to beat shack like various athletic That was actually supposed to be steve. Nash because steve nash can like beat people in like he can just do insane stuff like he can make thirty three pointers in a row with a softball. Like he's just like one of those freak athletes. There's two people that look the same now thanks But because like when the abc producers were. hang out. with steve nash. He was on the suns with shocked and shack just like kind of woo them over to his side and made the show about him. So i'm wondering if we just recast. Am as sin bed because it just makes more sense like we just thought he should have been in that role. I don't know. I don't know it's a lot of twisting and turning we have to do to to make it all make sense when it's just i it doesn't make sense it's a it's a completely irrational interesting sinbad. Also so funny i don't. This has nothing to do with it. That is so funny. How still if you can go is where you want to risk your covert exposures to go see sindbad but some day if you like stand up and you might think i'm joking because he's not the generation you like each so funny. Oh i remember like back on airplanes when there was no back in my day. Remember the old headphones that were just like air tubes that you would like plug into the stethoscope. The only entertainment on fucking plane was like this. Ten radio stations. Like that play music and i remember as a kid out. Always listen to whatever. The standup comedy was like. That was like my favorite thing. I remember hearing sim bad for the first time like on an album and i could. I was fucking killing me and like that was so i've always had really good memories of his stand up to the point where you just always kept watching it because he's always been kind of like wholesome comedian. Dude but yeah. I i i. I second that suggestion even young miles. Who's listening with his weird rubber tube headphones. yeah fan. very one of the first stand up shows ever went like to go. See him at some when i was like eighteen or nineteen and he'd only did standards about the cab ride from the airport to the casino in kansas city for an hour and talk to people in the crowd and just crush so hard that you're like this is like a different sport. It's absolutely different. Thing happened in many ways. I don't think he was naturally the funniest person. I'd there'll be like a there'd be this'll be a was isn't the barron steen. Bears another example. Yes yes mandel affect. This is the one that is very that actually got me. The i definitely have the image in my head of him on the in a movie poster folding his arms like a genie energy output. For some reason but yeah it so this is where it turns from. I feel like this is a good metaphor for the the current state of america. Because then they say at the very end of the article even when faced with facts. People don't want to be told they're wrong. When they debunk. The zam theory people get upset claiming the movie was quote so influential on their childhood says atkins strangely atkins said that in order to prove their point. Some of these same people will later claim. The influential movie was so bad. Sim bad wanted to get rid of it. Like the fucking. Et any ask game or something. Right that there are someone's going to discover stockpile of old sinbad shas. Am tapes dump in arizona. This thing about stuff is you can't get rid of it anymore. Bright there can't hide so they rather than admitting they're wrong about this completely inconsequential thing. They will accuse people of being part of a vast conspiracy. It agassi were.

What happens when you put a whole lifetime within a day. People say what. I just do twice as much shit. Ain't no big deal but in a for again all the things that make you sick you know the adjustment. The shock of it. And we've seen this setup before with a movie like this group of strangers find themselves mysterious but dangerous setting and he'd try to figure out a way to get out for turning on each other you've seen is all the time every bottle film. Yep everybody everybody half and half them. We saw puts they put by five people box. Took them five minutes to start trying to kill each other.

"But the other thing i like about it is like you have this study. Those scenes played very straight right. It's this very interesting. Moral quandary of just like trolley car problem. So what if they let ten people die on the beach if you're actually curing diseases forever. That's a difficult question. Is it fucking worth that all this stuff. It's a kind of twilight zone. It's twilight zone. But again the whole shamlan thing. Where like cour the real monsters. Yes but also there's a little bit of a sort of like someone got hit in the head in the middle of writing the script second. We the second. Why are they on the beach at the same. Can we just wanted time now. There's so many problems with your super experiment. But i don't care about that. This is the other thing because it's the old beat when when we did shamlan originally i had not really become a twilight zone fan. And since then i've watched most of them and not only that it's been show. I go to look a lot. Especially when i'm in like stressful periods of my life. It's a comfort food show i re-watch and all of that and there's something about the style of that show that very few people have been able to replicate or translate or carry over into anything else including the many attempts at trying to modernize twilight zone right And it is that like it is not a subtle show at all. It is a very theatrical show in terms of performance in terms of direction. It's a real showcase for both and it's got big fucking ideas but there's something about the fact. The worst season of twilight zone is the one where they were like. What if it's an hour and they all become laborious right right when they're fucking twenty five minutes long they're not subtle but there's something about the economy and the impact of the density of what they're doing that you forgive the cartoonish nece certain things right the bonk on the head feeling because it's like look we got set these characters up in three pages because then the setup the reverse needs to happen on page six And then there has to be the status quo for ten pages so we can come with the ultimate revealed the twist or whatever it is actually has made like twilight zone movie that i think sustains that stuff two hours is one hundred ninety minutes right which is which is pretty fucking wild and that ending feels like that to me to where a lot of those twilight zone endings..

You guys like hotdogs and offers everybody hotdogs and that was just i mean it was like it was like watching. A door kicked open hall of the senators. This movie it is just heckling. It's just yelling. That was great. That was great. I don't think i've ever seen that movie. the i think. That's one of his senior. Yeah is it's the wild thing about that movie. That's so funny is while you're sitting there watching it for the first time as they're presenting all the problems you can think of half a dozen solutions off the top of your head scientist. Saco trees are attacking us with their spores. You could go into any skyscraper above the treeline problem solved any. You could go into a car and closed doors and windows drive somewhere else problem. There's many many ways to avoid spores being released now during covert obviously. That's like a macabre thing to say people were living but that movie is so you're like i could. I can think of ways that. I wouldn't die during this. This is the most low stakes experience. I won't ever have during a thriller. Here's my take away from that. Chris says that you could avoid cova by going into a car. He would know he's trapped in an apartment for two weeks That's how i solved it. Well a fourteen days. Chris you said. How many movies did you like. M night shyamalan. How many how many did you get before. Could you hoping he gets good again. Yeah how many did you like. I mean six sense. Everybody likes right. Yes yes like okay. Cool and then. I liked unbreakable. Because it's not like breakable. See i. I don't know if you grew up a big comic book fan i. I'm like an obsessive marvel comics fan. So and i i forget the exact year that came out but i feel like it was before superhero movies. Were totally up and running and comic book. Fans i think. We're always heartbreaking Heartbroken at the miserable quality superior movies. So you're going okay. This has the dna of comic books. In a way. I really and it's decent and it's watchable movie okay. So i didn't think it was great. But i was. I was very excited. Like oh the comic book fan in is very excited and that that was about it that was about it. Yeah what was the next one. It was the one there in the village is a village. Maybe it was signs. Signs was after i liked part. I like signs until they showed you the monster. Then i was out i hung in with both of those signs and the village i was like okay like not grade like clearly. Not living up to six cents but still you can still watch it and go. Yeah i get it. And then i lady in the water came and that was unwatchable. Didn't didn't even see it. Like i think. I heard either with that one and would the happening. I was like The feedback that everyone was giving was like okay. I'm not gonna subject myself to this but it sounded like maybe it would have been fun to see how the one with mark wahlberg right. It is and it took almost sorta like rocky horror or room. Quality of people are in here having a blast. Don't regret the fourteen dollars. I spent on the ticket all Even although i also want to say to like as an artist who has gotten bad reviews. I don't love slamming another hardest in it. There's also a thing where people say whatever they want about him night shyamalan like he's laughing his way to the bank and that's great. That's any any earned it with that first movie so kudos kudos wasn't his last one. Good i think. I remember enjoying his last one most recent well. He dallas d. Did those two one that no one knew was was a sequel until the third one came out. But there's those two other movies that connect to unbreakable them. I like them more than i liked. Unbreakable actually yeah split split and split class split with the good ones split with What's his name. Mcevoy jimmy mack. Sure i just like you and me. Chris Same circles. we've never met. But jimmy mack and i think we i think we hit it off. Dispaced edge we both loved the board. We both love. Eat into theater. And i could see us bonding over that Chris gathered is with us special out available on any platform that you're looking for a half of my life chris. I'm the one guy that couldn't get the link to work or whatever these three guys watch special. I couldn't but then it dawned on me that it came out on june first anyway so i could have watched it without this special link. Did you could you. Can you walk me through what this special is for those. That haven't seen it yet. And what can they expect without any spoilers so end of twenty nineteen. I had a tour schedule then. I realized that. I started in new york when i was twenty and i was about to turn forty so i said. Let me just film this for posterity. And see if there's anything there and took cameras ten cities and self funded the whole thing. So i could just do it. My way had a friend directed very very like barebones performed at ten small venues It was kind of important to me to kinda mix in some of that documentary footage with the standup itself. So it's a lot of jokes that i've worked on for years and i think a pretty good standby they've worked for a long time and then also just some of the reality foot sitting in a car in traffic hoping i make my show in detroit on time and stressing out about it and you know a lot of things like that that are just sorta like i've had an hbo special. I used to have tv show on cable and like yes still rent my own car and i drive from buffalo to detroit and that's kind of the reality for a lot of us and also because i shot at the way i did..

I'm gonna let me guess your age right. That's that's that's my thing. i'm age. Gasser weird pink completely now nihil but then there's a cool shot for more. the body. Tennessee laters completely decomposed. But over your watch take seven years and the shot from like inside the skeleton up at this shocked people a cool shot. Talent understand why you gets in his own way well and even the clip. You just showed us even though just listening to. It didn't sound like a lot. What's going on the way that was shot and not seeing the kids. It's like a little twilight zone. Feel to it. I like that but it's not worth it. So this is. This is not a good movie. it's a washable movie. Maybe an enjoyable movie. And there's a good rental. Do not rush out to see this pops up on. Hbo or amazon prime or whatever. This is a solid three bucks. You won't you alter board. Does he feel am nine. Just sort of the comedy world. There's just punch up guys. You know what i mean. They help out with the jokes that dialogue and that kind of just need someone to kind of shepherd him. Through the actual dialogue one hundred percent gas is your direct other people scrapped. Because like i said the guy can direct. He can move the camera he he can frame. The camera can do it all. Why does the other genres. Why does he only do thriller. You know what i mean like. Why doesn't he do comedy. The aforementioned comedy what isn't he a documentary we. I don't know maybe i first off. He's like pit himself. From this corner he's the thriller guy who's going to have to twist. Well i can't help but think of jordan peele and how get celebrated amazing. You should have pivoted immediate right and then us which i know you will not fan of i was you know it was. It was a let down after something so incredible. Get out so. I'm just wondering if there's a parallel there if he's going to you know he'd shamlan example front. You not a good movie but worth worth checking out if it's on tv hbo. Like i said this won't be bored and there's enough good stuff.
"shamlan" Discussed on Double Toasted
"Why sages by the time we get to. The end of the movie doesn't make any sense. They're never there's no consistency throughout this time. No no that that. That's the i mean i could say. I think i liked this movie better than you guys did. And if it's in the m night shamlan catalogue of being basically twilight zone episode. That stretched out to be a full of feature-length film I think he does a lot of things here better than he has a while and he has some ambition. I admire that. I love the camera work. Throughout the entire thing i was like man i could watch this with the sound off and and just just love every shot. I got mesmerized at some point about it. But there's plenty of clunky dialogue over explaining and the biggest thing is that the time that the the the elapse of time is not consistent. Not like you have the kids in age but the adults look the same for so long and then suddenly they got wrinkles and sure an adult is gonna you know appear to age slower but the way they have time moving so fast like a lot of this doesn't really add up. I wonder i'm glad you brought that up. Because i wonder if it was a budgetary constraint because the movie was i guess somewhere between twenty and fifty million dollars but there comes a point where certain characters are supposed to be like eighty or ninety. And it's like you're not eighty or ninety looking at your like maybe you're like twenty years older but not to what we were supposed to have in the seaman. The makeup in this is very very hit and miss from i. It is hit miss even a trophy wife when she's getting older. It's just her makeup just me here.

"Midnight on some lines. Came as i've done all that shit already. I ain't doing that. I want to scare people ordinary shit like like grandparents and wind. What's going on. That's getting the set. The camera talk brothers looking at him. Like for real like man. I went to walk. Gummy look like chinatown. That's the happening was didn't happen for a lot of people but nice trying to scare people with time in the horror of getting older and vacations vacation stressful. Yeah you know getting old is is already a horror movie in itself. We live it every day. We just don't get scared because it should happen. Slow yeah sure you know we don't we don't feel it but em nice shamlan came is. I'm mega scary. I just speeded up in though just making it old in a day when you get old and these star creek and all that and all this sickness come in you know and we've seen this setup before right here is the whole premise. Is what happens when you put a whole lifetime. Within a day people will say well. I do twice as much shit. Ain't no big deal. None but in a people don't account for all the things that make you sick. You know that the judgment the shock of and we've seen this before with a movie like this group of strangers find themselves mysterious but dangerous setting and try to figure out a way to get out for turning on each other. You've seen this all the time. Yeah every bottle film. Yep everybody half of it but have them. We saw put. They put five people in a box. Took them five minutes trying to kill each other and in this case we have an island with time passes so much faster years pass in minutes and not only does it accelerate the asian process but also as i mentioned already any kind of illnesses that you may have so can these people get the help off before they turn around and just get tired of each other shit and wanna kill each other are even if they're kind of nice and everybody's just completely cool. There's only a few hours before shit. I think about the dob old age. Give him about five minutes people. We'll be back with our review of old kids and out on the beach. God is never leave each other. Nothing separates us. Are we there yet. You said five minutes technically. It's been more than five. That's just all stop slowing down in you. You believe harm this online. This is not that secret.

"A turnpike rest stop in his thinking. Well yeah i mean you hear the is she. She tells a similar she tells a similar story. Do what yet either bags. But then when you hear her tell it again instead of her saying like he was found behind a barn or whatever the line is you hear her say apartment building. You know and things like that you find that. Yeah and it's it's it's it's it's an interesting idea like these people who father was shot in the face by his business partner. That's why we don't have money anymore. Exactly okay cool as my asshole. Dad was killed by another aso. who then killed himself. So yeah i just you know kidding up. A bunch of kids sir. Watching them die systematically very easily preventable ailments. Nobody it's very tough for me. Oh this is so All the weight the way and the pressure also kid being stabbed in the chest multiple times. Oh he's fine. Wait oh that special guy fell in a hole. He's dead that we know medicine for him. Now we'll go with someone's got to bury the body. Get you get your porcupine costume on and go dig among these. You bring him in this. But no no beria. Noah didn't really do any work. so i don't know. And also i mean like also brendan skid was seven. I mean come on now. We're going to cost. They're nuts man. It's fucking stupid kevin. We're worshiping kevin. Now this just kind of get it you know. Maybe it's a little annoying now. Because every time i eat breakfast z. To kevin are you sure. His name wasn't my colour. Something kevin but yes. She walks back in the house and she just goes. I'm back lucius. And that's that's it. The end of the movie. I gotta tell you For as unsuccessful as most of this movie is you gotta stop and this is not just shamlan on is anybody who utilizes this when you start rolling credits for your motion picture. You gotta take the players right out of there. Yes the player is the most pretend to know unless you're doing a literal shakespeare adaptation and then you're okay. She'll even still. That's a bit fucking then. I'm kinda rolling my eyes dumb shit village. there are no players place. It's just with that is. That is the end of the motion picture. The village directed by m night shamlan from the year of two thousand four. Would anybody recommend this movie. Steve seda i would not be. I think it's right on right on the border. It's the problem is you. Listen to this. You know the twist. And all that stuff i think the first time through you still not going to like it but at least you'll be scared and like you'll jump a couple times like be kind of interested in the world a little bit but there's no second time through here And again it's really well acted looks great. He's a very good director of horror and act actors and all sorts of stuff. The score is fantastic. But it's just too bad. Chris gavin. I would recommend it a slightly. Because i think everything about it is good. It just never coalescence. There's never a sense of all this making sense in one package. It doesn't it like that even like signs. Like i'm not even that big of a fan of but like that one is like it. It feels like a full movie. This really doesn't for some reason And i think it's like the rediscovery of this as like a new like people are like. Oh no now at your master sheng get it like also like cloud out. Listen those stupid matrix older. They're all masterpieces. You just didn't see it at the time we didn't see you can keep your cloud is like we didn't drink enough bleach yet but now that the infrastructure failed and we're all ingesting lead suddenly those matrix sequels. It's desperation it's anybody who has like some kind of style that is genuinely their own now has to be celebrated. Yes because we don't have those i mean. Sometimes things just fail. And i think the which huskies are excellent at what they do but more often than not they take huge swings. And they fucking fail at it. And it's okay. They're beautiful disasters. I mean you can like movies. If you want blah blah blah. I am game for the reappraisal of speed racer. Because i was in the senate from the jump still to this day of not. Did we love marijuana. I wanna see rock that pipe and watch speed. Racer won't regret it. It's a good one. Sorry this i would. I would kind of not recommend this. But i can see the slight argument to recommending it. Because it's it's interesting to see the first time. I think it's interesting enough to see once but it's just it's dull as dishwater to me. After point agree. I guess i'm a slight recommend too because i think this movie. There's so much going for it and it through large swats of it like it does okay. It's like watching simone. Biles do a floor routine and then right at the end. She fucking trips and falls into the announcers table. You know what i mean like. That's what you're looking at here because it's gorgeous. It looks great. The the the scores amazing like we've said the performance. The cast is great. It's just the obsession with pulling off some kind of twist ending just cheapens the whole fucking thing and it's totally unfortunate. I would've loved to have seen a prequel. Were they are setting up the society because like m night doing a movie about a fucking cult fails absolutely absolutely as like. Yeah if you haven't seen it like checking out even though you've listened to everything here because it's like it's cool to see something that almost made it but i'm not on board with this reappraisal. I don't think it ultimately works overall and there it is. That is the village ladies.

And they're battling some crooked scotsman named mcdonald's we end to his clan we can have burgers. That's also your fault. you're right eric. If you're doing this thing like the whole point is dog. Tooth it right. You're just you're you're you're you're walling off a town and make it up whatever bullshit you want. Yeah i get to know electricity thing and all that stuff. But i mean at the same time you could just be like. Oh there are no other towns. Everyone else in the world is dead. There was a plague. And if you go outside 'cause if you say that there are towns when there's better medicines and people are dying these kids are going to start fucking the full of evil people come to find the twist could've easily been like zombies or some sure. Yeah exactly. I mean. I make sense to go back to non-electricity times yeah totally. Just be off the grid completely. None of the worry about that. That was a question though. I mean of course this is we. Hey movie so we gotta ask the hard hitting questions like this. What was the toilets situation. When was the shower situation. Because i'll tell you what and they built this beautiful town like on this massive property in pennsylvania to shoot this movie constructed this whole thing. The productions moved credit boya naringin outhouse pictured got to be an outhouse detriment of tension like there's one near the fire ring around the town so you're taking shit and hearing scary stuff now it all goes in the well. There's one well that's for water. That's the real one. But there's one that's just all the way out and everybody has to hang their ass whole lotta. Why that can't happen though. Dude adrian brodie is going to be getting them do mixed up. he'll just fall down and then we work word of better movie honestly elder johnson. I went. I went to the outhouse and the bad color came out. Blood w snuck to the towns and partook of pulse. I is you've done battle with the burger king. I think this will be stupid. I like we'll also. This movie is kind of because that's the one thing you have to. You always have to keep in mind. You mentioned it already. Andrew is there to things that milan loves lying to the audience and the great state of pennsylvania. It is always. I wouldn't be shocked if the twist in old which is coming up. This weekend is that that is somehow in philadelphia. You know what i mean. Somehow there's an island in philadelphia that makes you the one beach in pittsburgh. Let me let me try to guess it right now. I'm gonna try to guess the twist of old right now. And i know i'm going to be wrong. But what if the twist is there. Just in like a slightly buggy. vr simulate. Okay you know what i mean. And then all of a sudden like you know the kid from hereditary like falls over and like go to his. Pov and his eyes are kind of you know opening and closing so it's going dark onscreen or whatever and then all of a sudden a mask is ripped off. And he's got a vcr helmet on fucking orange. Julius dan and this kids just in that mall someone that would suck ass so hard. Like fucking like. You don't have to be black mirror. Stop with the can't fucking stand it. Well the simulation thing now we're talking about it. I watched the whole documentary on it. I just ran the ayrshire flick by trying to don't care like if if i'm gonna simulation do i still need to pay rent. Yes do i need to am. I still going to grow old and probably get cancer. Okay so what the fuck do i care doesn't change anything at all doesn't now i think the point of that movie though to some degrees like yes steve. You're right but also there are people who don't get that like matrix kid and murder his fucking family shorrock so now. Now who's controlling this simulation. Do they now know could be aliens. Supercomputer zionists. I'm sure there's enough where catch me bad with assimilation or mister. God himself. God aren't all living in a simulation under mr guide according to the religious folks. I'm not saying that that's what everyone believes or that. I believe anything. But you know what i'm gonna say this. It's above my pay grade right. I was things i'm like. I don't know shut up. What do you care what the fuck is wrong you auto. You need to know everything. I will say there is. I mean that movie gets like tragically serious. I just mentioned but there are fucking hilarious. Things were you. Listen to these people. Try to fuck like like describe vision and the dudes are like all right. Just think about it. You ever walk down the street and you see three white cars dude. Go out by. What was the name of this again. A glitch in the matrix rodney ascher due to did room to thirty seven. I like it. I like it is those folks are beyond saving your so. The village starts off with full-on lie. We're just because it's it's never enough remnant shamlan just to like maybe cheat the camera and a certain no he's gonna fucking light to you because the first thing is brennan gleason holding onto a grave and the grave reads eight thousand nine hundred hundred ninety seven. That's a lie never lying. You're lying to the. I know jers but you're lying to me. Yeah i mean it would spoil the twist but it'd be kind of irian weird to see. Say like two thousand ninety totally. Yeah exactly do that. It kind of brings up an interesting question. I have is like where in the planning stages between like your william hurt your cherry jones. Your your brendan gleeson sigourney. Weaver all of these The elders of this you know grief counseling group. That decided to do this. What was the back and forth about where we're settling on the time period. Yes why the nine thousand nine hundred and what the problem with movies. I want to know what this was of aching of. this is incredible. And i know it's also so unsustainable like those kids are going to get out or one way or another like all cults it's completely unsustainable. Fourteen year olds going to rome into the woods. Get near the fence here. A little reggae tone from a passing. And he's gonna explode totally right and so when we get down to it later like would bryce dallas howard leaves to go get medicine. Why doesn't the guy that only the fucking park do that exactly. Yeah took an oath or so. I don't give a shit about your eighteenth century century. Go up the fucking road at get me some medicine and while you're at it cigarettes. Thank you fucking fiend. Since nineteen seventy eight william earn i. I'd love it and you're right. I would love this. We had like a code like the godfather partout. We're like everyone's just sitting around talking a little bit. Yes that'd be really kind of cool. And i mean i do want one person. Maybe jerry jones is like do you think it's i don't know. Do you think it's weird that we have no black people is it. Yes it's a weird reactionary movement. Because i don't wanna start at and that's another thing that like you have to do that in order to preserve the stupid fucking twists. Yes exactly you know. And it's like clearly it's the mid seventies doing this grief. Counseling thing like there would be people of color here. It's fucking philadelphia. Yes come on endless you you sacrifice which should be that kind of cultural accuracy because you're trying to preserve stupid fucking twists. That shouldn't matter and the first six cents. An unbreakable and even signs are very fluid movies. They they move. I no downtime. Like i'm constantly with them the village it's like one of i assume it's because of the twist but it's edited so poorly like there are segments that move very well and then they just stopped abruptly and then it's just so jangled and i'm like i don't care you made me stop carrying. I will say this. I think that this would be proves. That movie can be well-directed. Well acted well. Production designed and while scored two excellence. More they'll be terrible your screenplay and editing really matter and gorgeous. This is roger your movie. It's a great fucking. The scores fantastic really is..

Also keeping with kind of the tradition of us. Asking you about memories that you can possibly be aware of you. weren't there. tell us what you think. America roddy was about I feel like. I'm gonna be disappointed. Because i want more political and less karate. That's a theme for you of this year. Yeah i feel like it had to do with I feel like it was a sequel to karate kid and it talked about how they went on to get into politics but still every year. There's like a coup where they had the throwdown and then a whoever won got like gerrymander the lines. I feel like as a perfect mix of action and political theory to wear It's something that you could have in a political science class. that is probably like man. We need to make that comic where it's like how there's like went once you become like a supreme court justice you're like you get to be like a supreme court justice or a judge on the supreme court for light for eight but like every couple of years. You should have to go through a battle royale to try and keep your position. You keep your post. I think so. It's a bunch like crotchety old. People just wanted to like. They're they're motivated to fight for their riches in their their cushy position where they can keep getting kickbacks..

I think it might have been your second or your third book at the time. And i bought your thank. You was good gone. Bad is the one that listen. I fuck i work you and your now to have many seven and seven. I'm working on my eight. Okay what do you do put out every year. Usually the last book rock bottom bottom took me eighteen months front to me. Sixty five is sixty. Five thousand words ahead to put some coherent order. Took longer gasa said. You made the mistake in your first novel. Good gone bad of killing off your best character about. His name was streaker and he was the former cop who went to the dockside. And that's where the title came. Good going bad and everybody log. This particular character and i hated that i killed him off because i wanted to write him again so i just invented. His brother and his brother is a cult. Jessop who is Pardon my new series. That i started. And he has some of the similar traits since his brother and likes to go rogue and doesn't always follow by the rules so he was a lot of fun to write so. I'm having a good time with colds and reported to him being in in future novels but he the paranormal route and brought. You know your first character back in the second books on how through some supernatural maine's or suffering. I could've done that. But i chose not not. You know what you're right. You're right the The suspense thrillers with the with the touch around. That now a little bit about uses. And you're the author of rock bottom and six other romantic suspense novels first of all. What is a romantic suspense novel. It's fast pace page turner. it's a really not quite as intense as a thriller as very similar to a mystery. And what i've ride is Not a cozy mystery. But it's more like a hard full detective story and That's a good way for me to reach a bit wider market because women like my books a lot for the romance for the guys like the rough characters and some of the hard bowl techniques that are using stories. You said that you are a woman trapped in the body of a sweet southern bell at that you release your inner wild child creating gritty stories where the sparks fly Talk about talk about the pretty much sends me up. I didn't realize that to my daughter. said that that she said mom. Everybody thinks you're so sweet and ns than than such as polite southern lady she said but. I think that you're a tall blonde and a leather jacket on motorcycle and And i laugh at that but this kind of like what i like to raid is kind of gritty stuff. I like the gritty movies. My favorite movies shawshank redemption. I don't watch the a nine into the Ryan combs a lot of women are so i like kings kinda gritties. So that's what i like to read. And so that's what i write.

A lot of areas now the other day I was sitting at home and I talked about this to go I was wanting to watch my cheesy horror movies and right now I. Think I'm trying to get I'm trying to get caught up on the Har Movies because my wife does not like horror movies. She does not like she's like they scare me and like on our movies today like modern day horror movies aren't like the horror movies like the junk scares that you that you were watching the Halloween the Friday, the thirteenth, which kind of cheesy after a certain point or any old school halloween movies that. Everyone was scared about I was like Oh my God murderer murderers, ones that really really get me and I'll eat them up. I'll eat them up all day long. I'll sit when my covers pulled all the way up through my nose is those paranormal activities if they could just do a whole bunch of those based in different areas and make me feel like they're real man I love that. I, love watching. Watch Houma God who that could happen that technically could happen. That's the way how a horror movies would scare me is technically that would happen Texas chainsaw massacre. Yes. Sure. If you're a bunch of dumb ass kids in the middle of Texas freighter Thirteenth Yeah No one's coming back from the dead, not yet and. Michael Myers escape from a mental institution. Yeah. That that that can happen somewhere. But not here, this company right here anytime they put their name on a movie. You know how you see the opening credit I say the opening credits the distributed by a such and such film bubble Blah broadcasting or whatever. If I ever see this right here on a movie I'm I'm what I'm already sold I'm watching it and it's bloom house productions b. l.. U. M. House productions, and it's got the low kids sitting in the corner and the the spinning rocking chair because they are a little bit more. Now, the concept of the movie could be really really simple. Really really basic but the way they shoot the movie The cinematography in the movie is always awesome. The music really really awesome. The cut scenes are really really good to the stories flow very, very well, and because of my film theater. And you're like I, don't know what Bloom House production is but you've seen them and here's a top list of all the ones that they started in two thousand. Twenty years ago. By a gentleman by the name, of Jason Blum Jason Blum has created divisions like horror movies, international, TV's and stuff but the horror movies are the ones that like the most and just to give you an idea of what kind of movies they put out you've seen them, you're ready. The first original purge is a bloom house production. Insidious Chapter Two is a blue house production dark skies. Let's see what else paranormal activity in two, thousand, fourteen, another purge the Ouija. Not Luigi Weedy G Board unfriendly, which I just watched the other day and if you watch on fronted it's on Netflix right now it's a really unique concept on how they made just your computer screen itself a horror movie. That's all you see is someone's computer screen and like skype calls, and then that's it. You don't there's no outside footage there's no cameras walking around the building there's no dubbed-in video leads it. Is. One hundred percent done on a computer screen and that's really cool I just watched it. The other day was on call him Fred. Scary nuts gary. It's unique. You just wanted to see it unfold. Let's see split. You know the movie with What's his name Shamlan Bloom House produced it get out with Jordan Peele Bloom House produced it Happy Death Day great movie insidious as you can see I'm. Going right down the list and then of course, the two thousand and twenty one that came out called the again that was a blue house production anytime I see a Blue House production they've got one coming out called the magic eight ball where they teamed up with Mattel film or Mattel films, Mattel the toy they're doing the magic eight ball, which is the one where you shake the ball and you. Could see. Oh my God. My Future Bloom House anything Bloom House has if you're looking for a Halloween a scary night of a theater and watching an extreme weird a lot of movies make you think a lot it's very unique how they approach their style. So anyways, that's Blue House
Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
An insight into Kamala Harris, a potential VP for Biden
"I am Jonathan Kaye. Part AND WELCOME TO CAPE UP. Long before people started swooning over Congressman. Val demings of Florida as a possible vice president. Joe Biden folks. We're talking about senator. Kamla Harris California back in January twenty nineteen few weeks before Harris announced her own since disbanded presidential campaign. I sat with her in front of a live audience at George Washington University for the kickoff tour. For her the truth we hold because Harris's book is a memoir. Our conversation was heavy on stories about parents upbringing and her career. There's no better way to get to know this possible vice president than listening right now. Senator Harris thank you very much for for being here for choosing Washington to be the kickoff of your book tour and or actually to be correct books tour and as we see the truths we hold an American journey and then also superheroes are everywhere. I'm going to focus on the truths we hold k. And I'm going to focus on something that happens before even page one and I want to clear it up. Okay for anyone who might have done this or still doing this. Despite hearing it said correctly the first time pronounce your name Carmela so just think of like the punctuation Mark Comma and that Adalah and there you got and so then what does communism mean then. So it's a very traditional classic Indian name and it derives from Sanskrit and it's it means the lotus flower and so it's very prevalent and a lot of Asian cultures and the idea the symbolism. Is that the Lotus flowers sits on water but it never really gets wet. The water beats off of it and so the idea being that one can be in the midst of chaos or be in the midst of something happening and and be there and should be there and it doesn't necessarily need to penetrate you but one should be there and equally important Its roots are in the mud meaning. It is grounded and and one must always know where they come from and can still be this thing now. I need you to pronounce another name for me for the life of me. I just I couldn't do it. And that is the name of your mother Shammala. So the why is silent Shama Sharmila what was really Shamlan? Go Gopala tell us about your mom. Caller Mommy Mommy. We always called her. Mommy I am not embarrassed to say she is mommy and She is in many ways. The reason I wrote the book my sister my is here My Mother's one of her best friends from college is here. Lenore POMERANZ I write about in the book and my mother was a force of nature. A drill force of nature. She is someone who all five feet of her. If you met her after you walked away you would have thought she was seven Tom. My mother was a truth teller. She spoke the truth. She was probably the smartest toughest and most loving person I've ever known. She raised her daughters with a belief that we could do and be anything. She taught us that. Don't let people tell you who you are and you tell them who you are. She was a scientist. Breast cancer researcher should goals in her life to end breast cancer and raise her two daughters and she would take us to the lab with her at go after school on the weekends and being around scientists one of the things that I realize now early in my life I learned was that one should see what can be unburdened by what has been because that is science is about. It's the pursuit of those things that will improve the condition of life. That will solve problems. That will make things better. And that's why I'm naturally attracted to also anything that is about innovation understanding that innovation. We do it not because we're bored with things the way they've been but because we should always be in pursuit of being more efficient more effective more relevant and and that's what she is and was your father. Donald Harris also an immigrant born born in Jamaica. Yeah an economics professor at Stanford. And let's David. Mind comes from some BRAINIAC parents. Your mom got her. He H D. The year you were born does put that out there so now your dad comes to the United States from Jamaica. Yeah my father was equally brilliant. And is he was a national scholar and Jamaica. He earned his way and up in out and came to the United States into Berkeley to study economics and My parents met when they were active in the civil rights movement. And it's an interesting story because as you know my mother graduated college when she was nineteen and did and so she so she said to my grandfather who was one of the freedom fighters in India for India's independence and my mother was the eldest of four children. She was the oldest at at a girl obviously and she said to my grandparents. She wanted to study science and she wanted to go to what was considered to be one of the best schools and that was UC Berkeley and my grandparents looked at her and said okay. We will put you on a plane and you can go to a place. You've never been at nineteen years old. This was in nineteen fifty nine. So this young this girl. This young woman got on a plane encouraged by her parents to go and pursue her dream now. The back story is also that it was fully expected she would get that degree and go back and have a good arranged marriage but of course my mother having been raised and being who she was just naturally she when she got to Berkeley was immediately attracted to the civil rights movement. Why do you defend? That's where she met. My father was and but I want to say she met my father and decided to have a love marriage and a marriage based on love which I believe is the ultimate act of optimism. The the question that I interrupted. You're you're Satan with. Why do you think she was so attracted to the civil rights movement she was raised growing up? Would go back to India like every other year and And so I know the family from that that that raised her because they helped raise us and it was always about fighting for independence was about finding justice. It was about fighting to make sure that all people had a say in their future in their government an equal say and that was that was in her blood and of course that's what the civil rights movement was about and the free speech movement and and there are some funny stories. I was just sharing with something backstage. You know so I witness I right about in the book you know from my strollers. I view and there's a a funny family story about how some mothers marching with the extended family. I talk about like aunt Mary and Uncle Freddie and the book and she would tell the story about. How DO THEY MARTIN? And this is back when strollers didn't really have armrest seatbelts. Martin Away and you know shouting and and all of that and then I think Mongol Freddie a look down in the stroller which was empty followed up. My mother tells funny story like one day. She was fussing and and you know so much cuter when she would tell the story but she'd say so then she would look down at me and come on. What do you want? What do you want and I look back up in a said fleet on so glad that story. I wanted to hear you safe. We how I wanted to talk about your your father economics professor Stanford they meet atmospherically. Had you and my And you love going to the park and your mom would correct me. If I'm wrong would put limits on you in terms of how far you go. Whatever and your dad would say to you. Run RUN COM run. That's right he would say. Do not be afraid. Let her go let her go. Let her run. You run as fast as you. Can you run as far as you want and I believe that his whole purpose was to say. Do not be afraid and be

Anya Taylor-Joy, 'Emma'
"Then go see Emma which is Jane austen and which stars my guest today on Youtube or joint so welcome. Thank you for having me. It's great when I was an English major in school and we studied Jane Austen. Those of us that loved her. We called ourselves Jane Nights. We really thought wow. She just knows what's going on but Jane austen herself said about Emma. Maybe I'm the only one that actually is going to like her. Yeah so that didn't scare. You did it no. It was the reason I wanted to do. Yeah I sat down with director and I just said there's this quote from Jane Austen's Emma and I only want to do this role if I'm allowed to really stick to that because there'd been this thing about female characters being made very likeable and very easy to like and the thing that I found miss delicious about was I wanted. The audience in watching her journey have moments where they wanted to leap into the screen and shake her because she's being such a broad and you know roll their eyes at her doing something and misled but also when you finally get to her redemption and when she starts learning that people are not toys. I wanted them to really feel something for her. Because no human being is black or white. They're all these different shades of gray and That's that's what I wanted for my m well when you said that I started to feel all these different shades feeling good. It's good to have different well a lot of times and it happens from television. You're basically told that somebody's good or bad. And when we first meet in La we see her as this matchmaker manipulator. My friends should only be with people. I think are suitable when you read desk because this interpretation is as Jane Austen wrote it. It's set in the eighteen. Ten fifteen eighteen fifteen and and yet what does it say to a modern audience right now? I think Jane austen is a brilliant satirist and she has created in her dissection of this small town situation which very easily lends itself to high school. A working office. That's why clueless was so successful and something that I really love is people are people no matter where you go and no matter what censure year in the rules change but the human heart and the human emotions they stay the same and so in our version of Emma. We wanted to show everybody that these are flesh and blood human beings that are hot messes. Ninety-nine percent of the time and despite the fact that there will corseted and looking beautiful and have you know their little ridicules and stuff. They're still really upset. That they didn't tell the guy that they liked at the end of the ball that they liked them. And now it's all going to get messed up and my friend likes. Oh my goodness oh drama. That's happening now. It will never really go out of style. So it's it is the same in many ways except for the wardrobes. Yes it's the rules. There are very specific rules and it was important for us to adhere to them very strictly. So that whenever we did deviate from the rules it was a moment. So for instance. You just didn't really touch people back bet and like sometimes you held hands like that but it wasn't really a done thing and so when you have a bull seen between Emma and Mr Knightley in their hands squeeze second longer. You're like God. Someone can open a window Jane austen. It's revolutionary yeah. What's happened in terms of those little gestures and it was strange too because talk a little about your director and writer in this movie. The women are kind of the prime movers behind this version of him. Yes absolutely and you could really feel that onset. Eleanor Casson Who adapted the screenplay? He's just so funny and so wonderful because there were moments that we were playing one of the scenes in something didn't quite work out and we wanted to add live but then she would be the ad-lib translator in Austin. If that makes sense you'd run up to Elinor and be like I want to say this and she'd go okay and much like that's the Austin a speech a bit and awesome was just. She was so into everything that we were doing. And she's a real romantic at heart and so all of these scenes if you've done a really good. Seeing awesome would be crying like sheer joy tears becoming on their face and that is an actor as a wonderful thing to witness. Because you're like I did a good job. That was good but for for autumn. You're that's the first time that she directed a feature film the photographer video director. What was that like? Did you feel comfortable completely? I've worked with a lot of first time filmmakers and I never approached them any differently to say you know I might Shamlan. Who's made so many different films with each person is unique and has their own unique way of working something? I did really love about awesome. Though is I think a great skill you can have as director is not being afraid to say. I don't know and allowing the Group of people that you've you know to come together and help fix the problem and awesome brilliant adopt. Because she'd have this whole big great sweeping idea and then scheduling why. She turned me and go. What do I do? I don't know what to do in this situation. I was like okay. Yeah I guess I do know what to do and then we can. You know you could problem solve together. I think the lack of ego in that aspect is a really wonderful thing for directed to have your because you could take the opposite tack if that. Yeah I do what? I don't know what I'm doing now but you think I'm trying to think the first thing I saw was the which which was this amazing movie and again for Robert Eggers. It's the it's the first time but what's going on in that movie. It's so beautiful. Well Black Phillip. The goat no and the looks that you're doing. How have you changed now in all these years? What is it three or four? What we you like that first day on the set the witch as opposed to how you are now when you do not. That much has changed in terms of childlike wonderment. I love making films and I love being around people who make films and so anytime. I'm not in front of the camera. I'm like hanging out with sound guys go. How are you doing this? What does this button do? And oh can I push the Dalai on this next shot or something like that? I still get really excited about it. it's my Disneyland. It's where I want to be. I better at understanding how taxing the workers and especially lost year. I Made Emma. I had a day off at rights movie. I had a day off. And then I did a limited series for net flicks and that finished December twenty third five minutes. You starting something in March. I learned how to not pace myself. Because I'm not exactly pacing myself and I've learned how to take care of my own inner environment in a different way because if you're consistently just hemorrhaging out emotions for people and and building all of these worlds. There has to be some things that you take with you from each project in order to make sure that you yourself are safe. Well what can you take books? You buy read a lot of books handles. I spend as much time with animals as I possibly can. I love my friend. Philip I wanted Black Phillip I don't want to know where he is right now. I've been a vegetarian since I was eight. So I haven't ingested him so that makes me feel but If I if I could have pet that I could travel around with. I would love that but Spending lots of time in my own head writing music writing poetry just feeding myself or feasting on art that that gets me going. I don't know when you have the time to do all that you're doing because a lot of times you're living with that character and you don't want to get out of that character's at Yeah. I mean at the beginning so I always used to read a lot and then when I first started acting I found it hard to read and then in this lost year because I was jumping from Amazon head to my characters. Sandy's head an inhabitant of these different worlds reading a book was actually the only way that I could get people to not touch

Can Apple's streaming service really think different?
"Despite the fact that I'm in Washington, we're going to leave the news about the special counsel's investigation to the political shows and go somewhere else today, specifically Cupertino California where today apple hosted one of its special events at their headquarters in Silicon Valley. Usually these things are for the splashy rollout of new products. The latest iphone or MAC unveiled on the black stage with dramatic music and slick videos, you had all of that today too. But apple wasn't launching new devices. The company announced a whole new suite of services, a new credit card that works with Apple Pay along an -ticipant streaming TV service, plus a bunch of original content. Marketplace's Ben Bradford reports on how apple plans to compete in the already crowded streaming business one. Way to compete trot out the big names apple announced a slate of original shows and movies with Steve Carell m night. Shamlan Steven Spielberg and Octavia Spencer in Reese, Witherspoon, I create the dimensions of this woman. And now if you were this person imagine if you lived in alcohol apple spending over a billion dollars on new content. But media analyst Michael Goodman at strategy analytics says, the company's got its work cut out for it. That billion dollars is getting them in total about thirty shows. That's nothing compared to what you see interns, original content on Netflix, Amazon, everybody else customers can add HBO Showtime and other channels by paying extra who already does that. But apple feels it has an advantage, and you can play all of it right inside. The apple TV a-. Peter stern apples VP of services. Repeated a theme of the company's presentation. No more bouncing from app to app, he's marketing apple TV. Plus as. As a one stop shop. That's an antidote to streaming fatigue. A recent survey from consulting firm, Deloitte, found about half of US consumers are getting tired of too many streaming options. Jeff Laos conducted the survey of even talked to one person who said that she uses a spreadsheet to figure out which shows you can watch on which service apples been relying more and more on services to generate revenue the company brought in ten billion dollars to services in the last quarter of last year. And over the next four years the company wants to double that number.

Glass is an upcoming 2019 American superhero horror-thriller film
"About we hit glass jump into some glass here? Yeah, so I'm not familiar with glass. Oh, this is interesting. So you aren't familiar with glass? Well, I guess it's unbreakable from what two thousand or something I was looking up. Right? So it's the third in the unbreakable trilogy. Oh three. What's the second one then? The second one is split split never heard. I heard of breakable. I never heard a split and I haven't seen any of them. So even seen any of them. Okay. Well, on break. Ables a great m night shallow on movie. I'll give you a quick deep dive quick quick hit on that and unbreakable. There's a man who doesn't know anything about himself just as just sees himself as security guard, and he turns out to be super human. Sorry, spoiler. It's almost twenty years old. Well, and I was gonna say, I think the glass trailer gives that away, right? So that happened then and then now split was kind of shown as a completely separate movie from the this universe. And yet at the end, it's revealed that the David done is actually lives within this universe and how soon after I'm breakable at split come out, oh, split was a couple years ago. I think it was like twenty sixteen. I want to say, oh, that's recent. Yes. So there was like two thousand than like fifteen sixteen years later they do split and then like shortly thereafter glass. Right. And are these based off of comic books or something? No, they're generically based off comic books. Yeah. Reminds me a little bit of the x. men, but it does not have any lineage beyond, you know, m nights brain, I think. Yeah, but it is an interesting take. I was I was a little let down by the teaser trailer. You know was something that was really looking. Forward to. I loved unbreakable split. I was kind of lukewarm on and then now I'm hoping that this can tidy it all up and bring it all together. Yeah. So you're intimidating. This is the last in a trilogy. I think so. Yeah. They kinda ran its course. I do sort of the other two have like the m night Shyamalan twists like he typically puts it. Well, I'm breakable definitely had the twist where it is revealed that Elijah, while he was trying to coax David done out into the light, the whole movie turns out to be the the mastermind villain of the whole world they inhabit. So that's kind of that twist. And then in split, the twist is the fact that this lives within the unbreakable universe which is just a quick reveal at the end where it shows David done at a diner, hearing the news stories about James voice character, right? So this one, it ties it all up and we don't expect anything to different from these main characters, but I think that was the. That was part of the question that I kind of pose to everyone on Twitter was, do you think that because it's m night Shamlan that you'd need to have a twist. Some people didn't consider the twist in split to be a twist just because this a little bit of a button and it just ties you back on breakable. It doesn't really change the story of split, so I don't know what. You think I'm expecting double and triple splits on this one because I think he just wants to throw at you. Well, I mean, typically whenever I see one of his movies, I go into a thing like, all right, what's going to happen at the end? Because you know like the village six cents, of course, was you know the, he was dead the whole time. Wait, did I spoil that? But you know, that was like thirty years, right? Yeah, no. But you know, it's like you go into it and like I think it's the m night Shamil LAN trope rate, you know? So like you go into it like, you just know something's going to happen. So maybe the twist is there is no twist, I dunno, right? But then what that disappoint you, if that was if that were the case? And maybe that's why split felt a little disappointing. I think for me, split felt like the middle story of a trilogy, you know, which sometimes can be good Empire Strikes Back, but sometimes it it just bridges too much and it doesn't give you a lot of the closure that you're looking for. Sure. The girl character. Casey cook in in split. They really didn't do anything with her and they spent so much time developing her character. So I'm hoping that it feels like she's going to be part of the twist in here where she's one of the super is maybe and she is brought out into the the light by David done. And then she turns to the dark side with with Mr. glass. Yeah, and Mr. glass. He's kind of the ringleader of the crew? Yes, he's the mastermind. I love. I love the way this trailer opens up with Elijah's mother. Mr. glasses, mother talking, you know, doing the VO laying down the groundwork and she's, you know, you could tell. She's kind of like a loving mother. It's there's a bit of a sadness to her because of what's happened to her son how broken he is.
