Alec Baldwin Fatally Shoots Woman With Prop Gun on Movie Set
"Alec Baldwin kills a member of his crew with a prop gun. My friend Mark Davis reminds me that a prop gun, that ain't fire in anything. A prop gun is just that. It's a prop. It's a fake gun. It isn't capable of fire in anything. So they're using that term prop gun, probably inaccurately, but then again, all of this thing is weird. Every aspect of this is beyond bizarre. They are so careful on movie sets. There have been fatal accidents. Rural and Vic Morrow was decapitated? Making one of those I think Twilight Zone movies? Was it Brandon Lee Bruce Lee's kid who got killed on a movie set? So they're very, very careful. And yet somehow Alec Baldwin shot and killed the cinematographer on a movie that he was starring in and producing. Now, the investigation, of course, is underway. No charges have been filed, you know, you got to believe it's a horrible accident that will now follow Alec Baldwin for the rest of his life. He has to live with the death of this beautiful young woman who was his sin of photographer. I mean, again, none of this make it any sense. How does the shin of a photographer and his director get shot? And already, the family of Brandon Lee is tweeting out condolences saying no one should ever get killed on a movie set by a gun.

"It's almost like a secret club of kind of sad sack characters and it becomes evident when he strikes up a friendship with the one and only Charles Grodin there. And that was definitely you know seeing this. So here's why I watch. It was Charles Grodin was the was the meat was the first kind of draws to try to fill in gaps and films of his that I hadn't seen But also this was another one where it showed up in the Hbo Max Listings and it seems like, why would they bring this back of all of the other films that they could bring back in probably because they have the rights to it, it doesn't cost much and whatever. But at the bundle by yeah exactly it's it's a there's your block booking but the but you know I was just. Curious in in so I started to watch it to see if it had anything to it and I totally got into it It's it's got elements of kind of the more absurdist comedy that Steve Martin kind of moves into not not his early eighty stuff because you have his early eighties kind of wacky comedies like the Juror has that the jerk it's not that it's not the jerk it's not the man with two brains. It's more of kind of these where he gets into these flights of fancy with like what he doesn't La Story, kind of comes to mind and where you have kind of a realistic romantic setting suddenly turns fantastic. In one in some way or another So for example, like there's a point where you know he shows up at a restaurant and it's near the restaurants bustling and then he he he he tells me to table for one in everybody stops in the restaurant and watches him as he goes to his table, and then they put a big spotlight on him and there's all these kind of exaggerated. Elements too but but that seems to be kind of more In line with what? of We see later. So it's more playful for Neil Simon for sure. So yes so that so it's a Neil Simon Neil Simon's. Adapting I believe a book. I. Know. So he it's not an original Neil Simon I think he he's writing. He's he worked on the script. On it, but there was an actual there was there was A. Oh Gosh I'm forgetting the other guy's name. Anyway, there was a story about you know these kinds of you know lonely characters in New York. And so he meets He meets a woman played by Judith Ivey and she is She's a recent divorce say and she kind of she's the one who tells him what it means to be a lonely guy because she was married to one and and she kind of knows knows the drill and they keep having these keep failing to connect with each other. She keeps trying to give him his phone number, give him her phone number, and he keeps losing it under sort of silly comical situations. But It's You know the but eventually you know, of course they get together but it's got us. It's got a darker tone to it because there is this element of the lonely guys. When they you know they can't find love they jump off the Manhattan Bridge have this very kind of artificial set piece of the Manhattan Bridge. But. You know the thing going back to you know my initial interest in it, which is Charles Grodin. There are just these great scenes of the two of them sitting I assume it's it's the other central Park Washington. Square Park. Just sitting on a park bench talking to each other and they're clearly improvising in there's just kind of a nice kind of looseness to it So the the folks who had worked on it So it's it's Ed Weinberger who I believe he did he write the book that this was based on I'm not sure but he was he did a lot of he worked on Mary. Tyler Moore among other things. So it's it's a lot of people coming from a TV background TV situation because those not ugly eighties New York It's a little bit because it's early eighties So things are not quite as it. I mean there's definitely kind of there's elements of danger, but it's not but but it's you know as as as the PS are starting to kind of take over. So you'd have those fat cats writing greeting cards. That's right. That's right. That's a that's a way to make or just working as I. Another one I watched is. after hours, which does not which I didn't think held up very well. Yeah. I was actually really eager to see if there's anything and just didn't really do it for me but Griffin Dunne plays a word processor in that. It's the idea that you. Publisher Yeah while you're like, yeah what does it mean to be a word processor? You go you basically go into an anonymous office where everybody's sitting you know maybe in cubicles or but definitely in an open seating plans and you just sit at a computer all day just doing mindless that was my my mindless computer job eighties movie was jumping Jack Flash Really. It was just a lot of fun to watch I mean those those? I. Mean. Those were I mean when I was younger I can see those things kind of even those those were like kind of. Jobs you know the just like the jobs that just like any anybody could do. There was something kind of appealing about like. Well, you're living in the city and you're you're getting you're part of this. This lively place that that seems very attractive even if your job kind of. His his forgettable and it's pro. It's whoopie talking to banks, right? Right. Well Yeah. Computers just you know even the most rudimentary aspects of computers being something. That's kind of when you fix them you're still hit em. Yeah. There's something very like heavily mechanical. Yeah but but I the I think the humor in it lands really. Well, I was watching it with my daughter WHO's Kind of she's really interested in in a lot of alternative comedy and she kind of she kind of got the the absurdist she she kind of dug the absurdist elements of it So yeah, I'd say give it give it a chance. So. All. Right. Well, those were six plus. The things that we watched and. The bucket, right? Exactly. We've got much longer list. So maybe maybe next time we'll keep going but or hopefully be able to start bringing guests bag. We'll figure it. We'll see if we can figure out a way to do that, but we appreciate your sticking with us through our long hiatus. Induced hiatus, and we hope to keep keep the podcast for. Next ex pupil at a seeing..

But if you Google pure difference Byron Peters There might be a way might be a way to find. Yeah I was having trouble finding it. took. Your appetite. Yeah. That's okay. But if anything else check out Byron. Peters his website. The work that he's doing he's he writes a lot about various subjects and that Kinda polymath way and like his approach says, does has it ever or do you know of any sort of response from kind of the math world in relation to something like this as he screened this and other contexts now you know it's it's it's part of a series to anti racist, mathematics. and. I haven't I. I'm sure if I spoke to math mathematicians go. Yeah. We all know that. But the way it's packaged in the way it does have something to say about our and the creation of winning the transmission of learning via video which relevant nowadays Has a lot more to say than just like Hey digi no. This history of numbers. And insisting I'll take him over. It's great. Well, I would yeah I mean I should definitely see it because of the work that I do with teaching documentary and It sounds really fascinating. and when we showed it, you know a couple of years ago people love. Okay it was it was one of. Those rare movies where I get emails afterwards from undergrads not necessarily rare but the volume like I was really weird. I was good. He. Would? Maybe, they could start getting people to go so that. Out to one of the weirder. Double View like a multiple viewings I watched when a stranger calls back. The is in early ninety s made for showtime. Sequel to when a stranger. Is that is that the first and only sequel to it? I believe. So okay because then I believe they remade it right? They remain in the. Mid Two thousand remember when that happened. And that's such that the original is such a weird movie to me anyway because it's one of those things where it was like it was such a big deal because of the premise and then it just never like when you watch it, it's like Oh, this is Kinda like nothing kind of happens. Yeah, and this movie is like Oh same like a really taught beginning. I remember when we rented it and like third. Fourth. Grade Fifth Grade. We started it. And then had deposit because you're two tenths. And So it's it's. So it's has a great opening sequence like the original film like scream you know yeah, and it pivots to a Har- like very much. In that time period is about take back the night female empowerment Anti Rape Culture? Of the early nineties and you just don't think it's GonNa go there and it's interesting to look back on and what they're trying to say, and then how they infuse it with thriller elements. But new imported thing is I watch your calls back and then immediately watched the version on with rift tax. which is real. That was a lot that was. A lot of, but you got a lot of strangers in a lot of calls. Yeah. That's a yeah. That's a lot of checking the children. That's all I remember. Did you check the children right? So. So those are two that I watch the most. Along with two birdied. So yeah, that's been a constant. Kind of background. scrolling behind me why do things right and add both worth at checkout various reasons? What's Your First One ted? Well So one of the things you know so What are we looking for? When we're in quarantine we're looking for sometimes we're looking for some comfort foods, some things that kind of experiences that kind of put us in in a good place whether it's escapist or you know in some cases, it can be things that are you know things that are more reflective of what we're actually dealing with but with perhaps some hope attached to them but so I you know one film series that I like to go back to is whit. STILLMAN's a first three films has his trilogy which I don't think has a proper name, is that the preppy trilogy or? What. But Those spots. Exactly. But. Interestingly over I've watched. I've I've seen metropolitan, which is the first film several times and we've screened it here We actually screened it here recently and he showed up break. Wandered into the room. We didn't I I was really disappointed to hear that because I would have loved to have met him but you know one of the first So that was I. didn't Rewatch that during quarantine but my wife did and I think and I remember hearing it in the background while when I was doing work. So I kind of experienced re-experience Metropolitan, which again I've seen many times and then one of. The first films that I did watch the last film in the trilogy, which is the last days of Disco which is I think. The first thing we watched on peacock the new, the new universal streaming service, which is okay I mean you know I started a universal release it is I'm not sure it might be like It might be like a whatever the precursor to focus features. which I'm forgetting house yeah.

"Where you could rent like ten DVD's at once right was perfect for or it might have been a precursor to like a monthly subscription. Yeah. I think I, remember like a five for five types like five films five days we definitely got. 'cause I remember having maybe maybe we just doubled up the five but. We had just remember a huge stack of DVD's when my daughter was an infant and we're stuck at home and we'd have you know like in-laws coming through to to help take care of things. So and this is two thousand and one that's two thousand. Yeah. That would have been two thousand one.

We don't have enough P P here for it. So So Ricky, why don't you start us off with one of your? Either discoveries or rediscoveries made during this time So the first film I'll chat about So I wanted to do what films I've seen the most 'cause I'm at the point where. Then multiple viewings of things. And I just was going back through my notes and the film that I've watched the most I it's helped out by the fact that it's a short. I believe it's twenty two minutes I think that's right. And I watched seven times as I'm helping someone right about it for a manuscript and that film is pure difference it screened in the Browning Cinema previously, I saw that a film festival a couple years ago wrote to the director as I really admired the film. And we screened in conjunction with a shorter. A shorter film Hell County this morning this evening. All right. Okay and really odd pairing. But that's a short film. I. Think it's you know just over an hour or so and with pure difference being twenty minutes, it made for a really interesting combination. And pure difference is an essay films high watched again for the documentary film Class I was teaching out at Westville Correctional Center which seems like years ago, which was shut down because of the pandemic like many things and I taught it in that setting and it was interesting because I really didn't get feedback. You know you of those were lectures you kind of throw them out and you don't necessarily hear back it was message in a bottle type. Lectures almost like a correspondence course in some ways But pure difference is twenty two minutes and it's an essay film about. The history of numbers so starts with a Margaret Thatcher quote she is leading a rally to her constituents. To definitely she's tour base and she's talking about. How educators are ruining the world and how? They've come up with this crazy idea of anti racist mathematics whatever that might be. She says with a lot of scorn and this film then. Mixes kind of. Like I- movie youtube videos like it looks like something that. A group would put together for class presentation and then put on Youtube. And I. Mean that I mean it's very is knowing knowing very self aware of. Mix with corporate training videos, and I think it's just kind of all the runoff from like the corporate educational experience in the videos that are created in that. And kind of the be footage that you would find in network. News. and it puts these altogether. To tell the story of numbers in how they have an element to them, that is could be channelled for racist reasons and how is really like a Surface level introduction to like number theory through critical analysis as it suggests that numbers are kind of random or that they're much more deliberate at that. They are very random. So the only thing that defines to is that it's not three. And three isn't too. So. That's the pure difference between them and so in that regard, there's no real difference between them but the same time the all of the points within two and three are infinite i. mean there's a huge amount well, maybe not technically imminent, but all of these numbers and things that can occur between them and so numbers are always an approximation of the real. which then allows the essay film to come back and look at like Oh like how are. These corporate videos approximations of the real and how. Are Essay films trying to get us to a place of knowledge or not so. It becomes very quickly also a statement about documentary films in reality. Our experience and let me tell you this has the Gel God millo seal of approval. Miraculous wow. As not a word that she would throw around. I don't think and it's so. It's It's great in a you have is has these moments of. Awareness where you see like oh such like throwaway footage. And the narration has a town that's almost like someone who sells like. These or you should. Buy a Mercedes, but it's not Jon Hamm. Does that that kind of soporific yet chirpy like female narrator voice who leads you through it And so it does feel very saccharin but underneath it is this really great awareness that I never had about numbers and how they have been used invidiously and how they. are both within and surrounding so just fully mashed with capitalism. And some of the problems inherent to that, and it's just.

"Where Al Pacino leaves this building through the rotating door flips up his collar and they start playing music. I thought to myself you went two and a half hours and now you can't just show the you'd you but other than that he's still restraint. He's restrained Pacino easily. The best who tailoring dream. No no no shirt underneath a white. All Right Ricky. What do you have for your final choice for my last one again looking at a movie where I don't care for it In two thousand and five crash wins best picture. One of the least least favorite best picture. Right this is when you look at the real dogs at one. This tends to be noted and it's not a good movie I turned it off. I remember watching me. I get it and I think this is a year. Where a lot of well the the favourite to win because crushes a bit of upset. I remember correctly was brokeback mountain. Which wins best picture screenplay has this energy going toward the invest in. Does it win? Best Director Best Director of his best director and lead so and it was. I remember the producer kind of seemed Zandi out and I was like. Oh she's like nervous about having to win and whatever but anyway The film that I go back to. Because I don't really like brokeback mountain. All that much capote which I recently watched As we just did to kill a mockingbird no I'll watch capote and this is Bennett Miller of the very unpredictable Miller. Second of four Features because he does the cruise. Which I don't like and then he does moneyball moneyball. Which I I just watch moneyball. I love money and Fox catcher which is a good movie too so anyway he makes capote and this is. We've talked about before Ted when you have twin movies come out on the same subject yes And so it gets tied in with infamous the Toby Jones. Yes looks and feels more like chairman Capote. Although I think it's I think it's well enough after like right after. They were in production. But it does come out the end up holding it until after like awards But Philip Seymour Hoffman plays capote and it was really his if you think of like a man for all seasons this is a film and it's really centered around him But it does it very well. You see the City mouse come and charm the town mice and it's really compelling how he does that and you know how predatory feels and your entry point into like your arms were prison or the sentinel the kind of watching him as Harper Lee Before she gets famous. And so you see you really see him. Operate through her eyes or even when she's not around as she travels with them to to Kansas to As he's doing research for the clutter family murders Also in cold blood. My mentioned this before but growing up in a country house and that makes it sound fancy house in the country in Iowa. Scared the Bejesus out of me. Yeah I'll bet I was reading something about how when the in cold blood was published in the New Yorker how it would sell out in the New Yorker would sound Kansas. Which is really funny. So it's just a story that has always been Central to my fear of queen bed sleeping foods like that seeing how it was created and knowing that He always knew that there was fudging and the story but seeing just the the lack of ethics that surround how it came to be but also how there was compassion and understanding during it It's a very muddy film intelligently so and holds up and you. It's great because you you hear folks often talk like the first couple minutes. I can't watch this movie. Like voices annoying and the affect is so thick right the fact that you get desensitized to it very quickly is like Oh there is something disarming about it once you get beyond it You get comfortable with that as people who he was interviewing and Kansas to the same thing sound wonderful. It's a IT'S A. It's a good way to go back to you and more than anything I'm like. Oh don't like go watch brokeback on a game. Watch capote and watching them. Cope led to if you're home alone in Iowa. Don't read the book as really strong screen very much. I need to watch capote again because I. It's one of those movies. I just felt that maybe I wasn't in the right head space. I was distracted. Or whatever since he bring it up. I want to one reason. I'm grateful for that because I didn't really I think appreciated it is it probably helps Philip Seymour Hoffman. Help Charlie Kaufman make some New York? Which if people have seen it. How can you forget that? I love that. Because if he doesn't win that Oscar I'm not sure he has quite that cloud very low film. That's why I I remember 'cause we I was in a I was in a book club or book and Film Club at the time and we and we went as a group to eat or to go see it and it was one where we went out afterwards and it was a pretty quiet conversation. Because it's just you know it has it. There's there's a lot of subtlety to it Which which you know going back to moneyball which I was enthusia- already said you really loved is a money balls another one where I kind of saw as more procedural When I watched it I've gone back to it and there's just a lot more than I do about it. I think there's I think that Ben Millers got some got some good stuff Bio-pic yeah that's true that's all he's done but not that often and he's done them oil so So my last choice is Probably the most recent I guess on her out of our group which is from two thousand fourteen So this was the year of Alejandro in our E. Two's Birdman and I don't care to say what the full title is. Because I don't really I don't like the movie. Actually I shouldn't say I don't like it because I only watched about twenty or so minutes of it and just said I don't care about this at all yeah Because I get the Gimmick and just you know I don't really I don't really WanNa see where it goes Yeah and and interestingly parallel this year which I still have not seen one thousand nine hundred ninety. It seems like what else in. That's why I assumed one thousand seventeen was going to win this year. Because you know the academy tends to Embrace those kinds of things but yeah birdman just seemed to me very navel-gazing and self congratulatory. And just just you on this many many reasons. I'm also I'm just not a big injury to fan in general I don't like his spend like his his look. And Lincoln's I don't really I don't really care about the films that he the subjects that he shirt exposing his films but that year so that was also the year of Wes. Anderson's the Grand Budapest hotel which is a film that I think on my initial viewing. I liked but I always. I always ask myself this question when I watch important films. Which is what is this really about. And I just didn't think there was a lot of substance to it. It's a it's a film that has a beautiful surface to it but it just doesn't seem doesn't seem particularly deep But then when I've gone back and watched it again it. I don't know that it's so much that I've found some so much depth to it but that it's so damned pleasurable in the way that it explores the in just in terms of world creation. And in how you experience You know these characters lives that I just I could watch it twenty more times And you know one of the things is you know. There's the sort of obvious things like the framing devices. Which is you know how it takes you from this girl. Reading a book into You know the FI in the film actually changes formats. It goes from like a wide screen format to a A A European aspect ratio. Because it's in the nineteen sixties going back to the thirties where it's one three three So it's it's so clever about those kinds of things but then you know the the the design. The production design itself is just out of this world The CAST is fantastic It's it's you know. Ray finds that's probably one of the best performances. I think of the last ten years. He's just a really really engaging character in so many ways and also you know kind of not in ways that we would expect it So I mean it's actually made me kind of just come to terms with it being okay that wes. Anderson's films are just about these incredibly beautiful intricate worlds. That don't really have any sort of great. You know statement to make about society But are just really pleasureable until to live in for the time that you watch them and and I think I I'm guessing that maybe this year might be the that he finally wins. It seems like there's there's already kind of a build up for the French dispatch right Which you know already looks to be. You know it'd be and it looks like he's not he's not making any left turns with this one white. I haven't seen Dan Collins. I've seen it has to do with the the stories that are being told by the newspaper so when they get into the story mode they go. We'll find out. Yeah so it's that's a film that you know. I can again from looking at favorite Oscar winners from the last decade. That's that's probably my favorite of any of the best picture winners from the last ten years I was at a conference. Budapest ones and I stayed in a hotel very much like that. Where like the the Richard Nixon? Sweet it's days had stopped. At a certain point yeah and A lot of that like cantaloupe color around like in the and it was very it took me I was like Oh this is very evocative of yeah passed the Prime Hotel that I've been in so like I started like right off the bat like. Oh Yeah I actually am locating myself in a one of his movies which you don't do that often right and then it was a nice right after that it's like I'm not going to leave my wife to My wife went to Prague shortly after the you know the fall of the Iron Curtain. And we're at that point you could go for. It was dirty shirt and she got to stay. You know a grand you know. It's not Budapest. The Grand Prog uh-huh Evelyn But she said when you see the the scenes with Jude Law which is that's in the sixties right Jason Starred F. Abraham is in the modern. Yes yes yeah. Yeah so yeah. Because he's he's the boy kind of grown up But.

"Yet itself series right interesting was very moved when When Terry was added to the cast of Three's company and Jack tries to ridicule her. That was a that was a touching moment. It's a very special but yeah I would recommend people watching the insider again if they have seen it and watch it. If they haven't it stands out to me as possibly the most impressive Movie of both Al Pacino's at least late career Is In were restrained. More risk more strained. No none of that Russell Crowe also absolutely impressive performances. Jeffrey Wagon I am convinced that between his performances in La confidential on the insider. That's why he won. Best actor for Gladiator Beautiful Mind. Yes along with the fact that everybody loved gladiator. Because this movie no he didn't win for Beautiful Mind. He went gladdy one for glitter. You know. Yeah he went for gladiator because Dan so Washington for Training Day. This whole thing of winning for the wrong move exactly fortune right exactly and insight in the inside. I think he should have won. Yes he should have said. I'm not even sham. Kevin Spacey. Right is of course looking up. And it's it's an amazing accomplishment for Michael Man Who of course before and after just put his stock in basically extremely macho extremely a crime focused movies. This doesn't focus on either of those if there's any masculinity in this movie it's in the service of these people's professions and it takes their profession seriously and I was amazed having seen it before how I was carried along by the story still. I didn't even remember how much it got into. Especially after Mike. Wallace does his heel turn and betrays Al Pacino's producer character. Well there's nearly forty five fifty minutes left to go and act so much it. Yeah and just the fact that it is discussing one of the signature non fiction story lines of late twentieth century America places. It probably in the best of the best of the MUCKRAKER MOVIES. We go silkwood to spotlight. Nobody wins until spotlight and at least three or four. Probably should have like the big short absences definitely. That was fire. One of my one side is looking at us. Oh Yeah Yeah To be another yeah they don't I probably because there is a concern over being too political Yeah right yeah I just. I think it just didn't I mean I remember American beauty. That was the first year I went to the Toronto Film Festival in you in. You is my first time witnessing kind of hype machine and just seeing how people were the way people were talking about You you they were having these kind of rapturous reactions to it and saying Oh. It's a film that's so you know it's about everything and and I think about very relatable things in American beauty which is partly why it's successful But it's not but then when I came around to seeing and I was like this is this is flimsy paper then whereas the insider actually really liked and I'm not a big Michael Man Fall into the jars that he does and I don't you know his look. I get it but I don't I don't get into it. I laughed having watched it the very last shot where Al Pacino leaves this building through the rotating door flips up his collar and they start playing music. I thought to myself you.

"And despite himself being able to offer a lot of gravity as we'll the last like three days after thinking about this I started to watch I started to watch true stories because he's actually more of like the leading man as opposed to the character pal to have you know very likeable WanNa be on do a New York accent in this in this film because he typically does his John you know his kind of standard John he sometimes they make in place southern he's missed that my the performance standup like nothing about the movie was funny and it had good people because he's GonNa drag you along all right so actually I had a runner-up who who I felt obligated to choose and that's rip torn themselves to a podcast discussion it's more of like the late sixties right kind all on the Larry Sanders show which which is TV but defending your life all right passed away what kind of any rips so instead I chose an actor who people have heard me go on about at actually a a really long career he's been making he he Mary's baby which I think led to some other opportunities couch this with just an observation of I did watch an older episode of before they cut the show to an hour an hour and a half and there's a great episode that he's hosts as a guest on Yeah Carson and letterman where he played this he would go against them because they don't think they're not in on the joke that's right that's right that he's just that he's but he's incredibly he's he's one of the funniest actors his performance it it kind of it kind of opens up more and then and is is when he's travelled when they're traveling together to go on their honeymoon that he absolutely cannot he and his wife have gone that happens to people all the time and so script it's it's an directed by Elaine may what's so funny about needed we talked about this this this one I didn't discover this until later there are a ton of Neil Woody Allen because woody allen was such a particular thing in a way to identify put Neil Simon aside it's a film directed by Elaine May who interestingly casts uh-huh in Chattanooga Nassir nomination for for the role but it's uglier version of the graduate story where you know wants to be it it seems to get very regressive and just kind of ridiculous and it doesn't it owner but really lots of really uncomfortable scenes of humor confrontations but it's great one of my favorites of all time yeah it's been well it's been it's it's a film distribution wise it's had its had a really weird is it on video originally made it I think it was mgm but I think they lost it's not part you would think that film like that with you know with Charles Grodin and cybill all right so let's see so going in order of my next career but he got into some romantic comedies like Honeymoon Vegas it could happen Tara's around bed movie these are all like VHS cups that that that that era there and then He Won Academy Award for leaving in a pick because as much as I like his performance in it I think he you know I suppose like I always loved his work and then all of a sudden the rock comes along aged right you know million dollar movie hanging on his shoulders because he's very quirky You know to fairly sizable names and yeah he kind of not yet not your Schwarzenegger or even Bruce Willis like that whole in your time zone and we're coming is now going at that point going through he was like yeah this is this is like his offset the muscles yeah like Nick Cage plays a biochemist he must have he's clumsy he's just the way he says he introduced himself like I'm Stanley goodspeed like or any still making it his own yeah I remember seeing it that summer when it came out and we let's go see the rock it worked out perfectly and it was an I nothing about Alcatraz because that is the rock as well John Mason there's ever so he's got brought back into Alcatraz with demands and his demands were like actually reasonably like he wanted like better care for veterans that's all of a sudden like that but he really wants he wants to be taken out now is this the only not to steal thunder from future PECs is this the it's very yeah he yeah that's Antoine Fuqua you're GonNa say I think so yeah somebody so the rock and I was just you know just all the while action just entertainment one liners it's crazy stuff that Ed Harris Ed Harris gives it is all all those nineties action Philly and you know in which was within office that's the whole order that's a whole other talk that's good man list so the next film I would throw in is allege and my mom always said Sophomore Year of college nothing yeah so in college with some Blair probably most famous for having then there was actually a part three autobiography which I remember when it came zone pretty graphic sex scene and and that didn't make the final cut of the film a New Jersey family so this is very similar to previous life like what happens if we made a movie about a an all American family we set like Oh what is New Jersey my mind New Jersey to me how's Jersey and why John Goodman and very well and Julie Hagerty is a really great wife and think she if you think of him in Roseanne as the affable dad trying to do as best this this machine and social plug that kind from his past characters into this role that is I'm for taking roles off scripts that are bizarre if you think be in their potential and I thank you did very nice job he's Oh provocative that it's very easy to just kind of dismiss them and on his his films since then I've a greater appreciation kind of knowing he thinks about putting stories together very clever and I think worthwhile even themselves it was it was very clever when you're a sophomore clever my list of Grodin films is probably the one that going to see the going to the movies with friends in high armed I know where I wanna see something more substantial midnight run instead the wild movie to see by yourself zero fans so I wouldn't deniro was the you know in terms of relative it's not really a it's not as if it's some kind of art house film I mean it's a it's between the two actors As I was looking this up I was surprised league I think was so Baker I was watching okay he's got an interesting little turn in the leftovers replays himself think he's embezzled money and he's skipped out on bail when he's been caught like dog the bounty hunter so he's a he's a bounty hunter who's who's been sent to Jack because while they're together they sort of drive each other crazy in is between them so it's a great I mean that's a great from I it's a Dan Bergen face one of my favorite movies favorite favorite comedian reform time I mean he's really funny are you doing the litmus configuration yeah and like just the way Deniro plays awesome and it's a you know and that's an a little bit in terms of you know some weird stuff and this is kind of coming back to the mainstream actor yeah exactly and then yeah he's been mainstreamed yeah and he hadn't and you know comic figure it's not quite but it's not it doesn't quite fall into that easy don't show grandma that other one like I got we like you see it's heartwarming at the end you want you want to see more of those two together yeah exactly Josh shooter mcgavin Played Jack He's Dan we plants bail bonds great joy early Joey and what's this last Norman truck that's it yeah he's I think he's he's got a role in midnight run a little bit eh anyway moving on what you have your third cage okay where does the cage or you know he.

"It's more of like the late sixties right kind of pseudo documentary Weird metaphysics that I that I like or his his role on the Larry Sanders show which which is TV but defending your life which which is defending. He's Great Independent. Actually I mean there's more but you know so so so he would have been good one and rip rip You we lost him this year. Ip Rip Taylor. All right passed away. What kind of any rips out there? Yet I'll rip your uh-huh Kellyanne Billy I can't tell them apart Okay so So instead I chose a an actor who People have heard me go on about at length length and that would be another another prominent white man Charles grown so Charles Grodin has pre actually a a really long career He's been making He actually started in the late fifties in his first roles But but I think the first rule that most people associated with is the doctor and Rosemary's baby which I think led to some other opportunities And what I would say is is I really. Strong kind of breakout role. Is The heartbreak kid. And I'll and I'll Couch this with just an observation of I did watch an older episode of Johnny Carson. I love watching Johnny Carson especially the the the longer ones that were rental. Well when it's yeah exactly what it's before before they cut the show to an hour hour and a half and there's a great episode that he's on right around the time that he had Just wrapped the heartbreak kid and he was he was he was famous as a talk. Show a hosts as a guest on Yeah Carson and Letterman. Where he played this he would kind of play? This very cantankerous persona in really get into it with especially with Letterman. They'd they'd get into fights and stuff and then the audience would would go against them because they don't think they're not in on the joke. That's right that's right. He's just that he's playing up so I grew up this like you because I didn't get it because he was unsure with this guy but But he's incredibly. He's he's one of the funniest actors in my estimation in part because he does he can both do this really dry humor summer where he just you know he really limits what he gives you but in the way that he limits his performance. It it kind of it kind of opens up more and then and and then he can also kind of really blow it out. And that's what he does in the heartbreak kid where he plays A newlywed who's just married a woman who he quickly realizes houses when he's travelled when they're traveling together to go on their honeymoon that he absolutely cannot stand her And so while he's on his honeymoon he Spies the young cybill shepherd who also happens to be vacationing at the same resort. where he and his wife have gone people all the time? So so then he schemes to leave his wife and Startup relationship with civil shepherd. So it's a it's a Neil Simon Script it's it's directed by Elaine. May what's funny but Neil Simon you thinking about how you were a young boy who really well that was because he was sophisticated. We talked about this but this one. I didn't discover this until later. There are a ton of Neil. Neil Simon Neil Evans. Yeah it was in some ways it was for for wider audience. It was like the more accessible. Woody Woody Allen because Woody Allen was such a particular thing and a way to identify with your divorce fourth grade teacher. That's right that's all right so yeah so anyway. So but no but it's actually. Let's put Neil Simon aside. It's a film directed by Elaine. May who interestingly casts is her daughter Jeannie Berlin in the in the role of Grodin wife the one that he can't stand playing this very unattractive character In Jackson Oscar nomination for For the role. But it's a film that I actually. I often compare to the graduate in that. It's a similar moment in time But it's not quite as cool It's a much it's kind of uglier version of the graduate story Where you know this this whole idea of Sexual Liberation in the late sixties and early seventies is kind of empowering people. Here you hear it just seems wants to be it it seems to get very regressive and just kind of ridiculous and it doesn't it doesn't necessarily change the world in the way that you know the graduate seems to aspire to Interestingly the graduates directed by Mike Nichols Elaine. May's longtime comedy partner but Really lots of really uncomfortable scenes of humor when I tell people about how much I love this film and they've seen it. There's like I don't get it because it's because it's more of like what you're talking about with the talk shows of just really awkward kind of confrontations. But it's great one of my favorites of all time. I have a confession. Yes I've only seen the Ben Stiller remake. ooh I love Charles Grodin Charles Grodin but I never saw the original. It's been well it's also. It's a film distribution wise. It's had its had a really weird distribution process it was on net flicks when Netflix had that period where they suddenly had everything on then it then it went away and it's just never been available again is is it on video originally made it. I think it was MGM. But I think they lost rights to it or something. I don't know it's a it's got a weird writes history to like film again. It's one of the strengths. I I forget but Yeah but it's not it's not part you would think that film like that with you. Know with Charles Grodin and cybill sheppard that they would have made it more widely available. But it's not so anyway Dan. What is next on your cagey list of Nick Cage? Alright so let's see so going in order of my next a touchstone of the Nikkei's career so after a while that Har t You know did a lot of movies a lot of hits and misses which is the usual in his career but He got into some romantic comedies. Like Honeymoon Vegas. It could happen when you Comedies like guarding tess. McLean and they were modest. Hits Missing Andy Ammunition wanting to Jon. Lovitz and Dana car trapped in Tara's around bad movie these are all like VHS thinks that sat on the that sat in the video store shelves. Exactly they give them away on the on the coroner's please take these away. So we had that that that that era there and then he won Academy Award for leaving in Las Vegas all his years of his fourteen. Thirteen years of hard work paid off. He got he got that Oscar But that's not the movie I'M GONNA in a pick because as much as I like his performance in it I think he was better in the rock wound do do what about the Iraq Do you find appealing. I think at the time You know I suppose like I always. I loved his work and then all of a sudden the rock comes along long and he's a big action. You know it's the big action movie and it's like Oh all of a sudden it's like He seemed like the least likely guide to become a big budget aged million dollar movie hanging on the shoulders. Yeah because he's very quirky. You got you know like you said it's hits misses all over the place with his career a little bit everything everything. And then he's in the rockies paired with that Harrison in Sean Connery You know to fairly sizable names. And Yeah he kind of of a he just he. He's not your typical action guy in the movie like he's a built guy. We always is but alone. He's not yet not your Schwarzenegger. Or even Bruce Willis like that whole in your Joan and we're coming out of that in the in the mid nineties. You're not you're not. You don't have that as kind of the model. Ah You know these big muskie exactly action heroes. I mean Schwarzenegger's. Well even Schwarzenegger is now go at that point going through he was like. Yeah this is this is like his downturn punctual. Just like the Jeff Goldblum man Jurassic Park. Right Ri- right witty and intelligent. It's dumb Offset the muscles. Yeah like Nick Cage. Plays a biochemist team. He must have some serious degrees from highly steam institutions. You it's kind of like. He's the reluctant action hero. He's you know. He's he's clumsy he's just the way says he introduced himself like I'm Stanley goodspeed. Like like deliveries and I was really really drawn to even more then because he's in a different he's in a different arena here or any still making it his own. Yeah I remember seeing it that summer when it came out and we were actually. We were at a graduation and we but it was out of town where we had to like. Kill Time between the graduation ceremony and the dinner that was afterwards. Let's go see the rock. It worked out perfectly and it was an I just remember being just a lot of fun. I mean wasn't didn't take it too seriously and he was probably the most engaging thing about the I don't remember anything else about the filming something nothing about Alcatraz because that is the rock as well John Mason. Who Late actor Jon? Spencer says he's the only chance we have got yes to be. He has to go with this guy. Who is the only guy who escaped out of Alcatraz ever So he's got brought back into Alcatraz with with with Nicholas Cage because Nicholas Cage can disarm the warheads that Ed Harris is holding there with eighty hostages. Ray to blow up the rest of San Francisco if he doesn't get his demands and his demands were like actually reasonably like he wanted like better care for veterans or something like just like kill monger right like he. He has a pretty decent view of like how society should work. Saw something like that but he really wants Michael Bay's he wants. Uh He wants to. He wants to he wants the vets treated better. You know everyone can agree with that. He just goes about it and quite a very poor way that needs to be taking needs to be taken out now. Is this the only not to seal a thunder from future fixes. This only Michael Bay Nicholas Cage. You have in your less. It's the only only Michael Bane. Nicholas Cage Phil. What about CONAIR? No Simon West It's it's very very yeah. He he didn't produce it Bruckheimer. Okay so then took me sixty seconds is yeah. That's Antoine Fuqua. Say Yeah somebody like that but yeah.

something else I think for people to really connect with for mass audience audience that's coming for the movie doesn't know anything about music from the Suhel important like Van Damme Seagal and Jackie Chan are for those other audiences it's an experiment we'll see we what stillman's take down I seeking and as part of the conference want an opportunity for people who are attending we're gonNA give it a shop also nanotech institute we'll be screening oh five longer than but this one this came out it was in the wave of Ramani and kind of and it's right after there's just a real burst between like oh four and o-9 for Romani there are looking back to nineteen eighty nine so this they were looking for a film that really tapped into we also have via get subs Leviathan but about somewhat similar to twelve thirty eastern Bucharest. Yeah I mean even though you know if you go to a film festival people seek out his work but it's it seems to be it easy and then lastly from the classics silo we'll be screening and the great work that Dan Graph and Judy do over there right impersonal life will be screening with the Keough Institute and we will have the Irish studies and is the story of a New York City police officer the end to the troubles we have a an interesting project with the ECK inning of AIDS where we are today it's roughly forty years this is a film think about documentaries is to go back in time and be like hey here's what's not here here's what was unsaid sorry of the UN Secretary General who last two chances chances come check it out of I we have a performance of Puccini's Madame Butterfly family film you also have some some maybe some time of trauma recovery the world but also come back into the fold because we got Hercules as you will not return to is definitely the one thousand nine hundred nine offshoot Oh that was a late editions. What's the calendar the academic counter you know switches on you and rotate so you can't say oh and we showed you scrape sorry every day and the other is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving chatty award nominee yes take all my kids cartoon to chill wonderful cartoon I'm saying images depiction of hell might be unsettling short month for us here at the this you get a lot packed in come check it out all right kind of set of films to discuss with you guys this month American actor he has a bit of a shrine Burt Reynolds who's got Al Pacino and so we were trying to figure out a way to to do a top three where each of us will make a claim on a favorite it sounds good old stuff as well it's always even heard of or give a new take on things that might be more familiar watch after Thanksgiving you got to figure out how to spend the time with the family besides watching football so first big reveal Dan who we still my favorite actor of all time and that's Never GonNa Change is Nicholas Cage is the first of your top three so number three and number one you I would I would have to start the moment where he became my favorite actor I ice kind of these different so like Peggy sue got married he talks like back a little bit which I can't imagine what it sounded like before that conversation took place great romantic comedy and he's just a bizarre romantic lead in and he's got his hands would that was a big year eighty seven for him yeah yeah so yeah I remember watching that movie when there are always shoveled look at Danny Aiello was also share whose house in that whole movie has like a thing of it being like is it it's alien I I still love it holds up so yeah he's building up here I'm watching his movies on kid vampire's that's right for you know and the method man he seen the movie Yes he he thinks he's a vampire so then he's trying to kill himself with the vampire I always thought of as Chin is is is performances I saw David Lynch's wild at heart and I was totally art crazy goofy wizard? The phone is easiest Whitney which is saying something in horrific yeah so it was like let's go let's go see it at that's right that's right Dan is as central New Yorkers Syracuse points circumstance That great aunt you get your choice just get it for twenty four hours yes something like that and it was like one of the first with the family and my great aunt and my regular ant just Kinda like this whole Oh my Italian family at one the palm door to cancel moons drugs so so yeah so we're watched it and I was just like you know and it I would I remember and I haven't seen that film probably since nineteen all right we'll we'll come back to you for your other two I was thinking who who do I who's really an old faith from Roseanne to the righteous gemstones and made me realize and because it was when we had a descrambler on our satellite dish so you could just seven days a week twenty four seven so I watched this movie like eight times when I was in Prequel to basic instinct exactly but Harold Becker mouse too but it's Al Pacino's returned to acting remember that weird eighties I didn't think that was so revolution just really did him in and then there was there was MM fatale in it really liked on barking at this Husky Voice Sea of love is not a Joe Esther hearts screenplay right but it has to you yeah that's the thing Ark city detective and he runs a sting with Al Pacino defined imprint sting that they're running Al Pacino goes on a date with someone and then absorb a lot of energy coming off of Al Pacino who's working is something that you can see in John Gunman officers he can take so much up against.

"Again to another edition of establishing I was thinking about like TV series season three is usually like where you know they ed Barron I am the executive director here at the Debartolo Performing Arts Center Gingrich I was thinking I ricky has a fondness for the colored black so that's where that came from Ricky and I just returned from estival so kind of give you a rundown of some of the cool things if this happens to you with with Ricky I always get the same kinds of questions of like Oh what famous what's his name Robert Wool who played Arles the dollar sign dollar I saw him in the lobby When I did go life has begotten but now I'm like Oh we did a nice sought out I mean you've been this is your third trip is it or second third third trip so Glenn quarter feature sponsor I know it's a very the ease of it is is great because everything is so centrally have to walk through one hundred and ten degree heat like some festivals this summer well I think for most of what we see our most of where we see things it's pretty centrally every year yeah like another year backdrop what's on TV those are both are before yeah Oh yeah I did it when when David Ortiz was playing like his in his last season I really haven't done the touristy things there I haven't seen a game ah one of these days but that's a nice thing about the festival is go for the accoutrements and the trimmings of conference in some like but people are they're focused you have people that want to see a lot of movies I'm at a point where I maybe do three or four just in terms of you know just being sometimes it's a struggle because you'll have two or three films running simultaneously you say oh I'm going to give thirty minutes to this movie and step out and go to the vast majority of screenings I'm going to are in one clear what's what we're talking about is we we go to see we don't necessarily go to screenings just because of the access the access pass that that raking the public screenings where you see celebrities walking down the red carpet and most of those are in the same cineplex so you get to kind of bounce around between them and it's there's not there's no shame attached civil buzz yeah exactly so where you're an east coaster and there's a lot of east a C and say hello to which I enjoy so it's up so good old school mid nineties curated in one didn't cut it well they don't appreciate a it's a great week and I think because and down at one am kind of nights or days are program yeah just you do you think like oh you spend a week watching movies why would that be exhausting it seemed to be going and I think that was a testament to the fact that it was a good festival this year is a good think there were less than usual right yeah or at least maybe we were choosing more wisely maybe that's is one of your we're not ranking these are we now know now these are just my top is by a director Mark Myers and I'm friend Dahmer which I described as one of the best like after school out of that to the source material and not so much the director and he has a new film out so so I think I think there's something to he knows how to make in taking the the comic book or Title Director Made in two thousand thirteen and ill capital it's back in thirteen and now I need to go back I haven't had a chance yet in our partnership with the Nanotech Institute that that in like all adaptations remakes that have a geographical shift at but quickly for for the plot it revolves around societal and financial contractual duties with one another what it does to kind of crush them each and seeing how when they are outside off ask upper class financier interact the similarities and how people interact and is very well is yeah which which crashed now to it's more what's a hit and run accident and you don't know who the perpetrator is and how things unfold areas told by what they experience so you have overlapping events in in a way that's going to highlight particular families for particular hearers good cast to yeah you have you have that Ray in Queens in like a like a B minus film in the film says through her husband's company and very nice coats like outside or without her arms in the in the sleeves she's a she's like I would say she's a real bright point for me great that's Ethan Hawke Daughter Numa Thurman started she's popping up everywhere you too so I kind of went in ready to like it and really in ultimately Scottish believe director who is best known for his work runner for veep in its original in its first couple of seasons on HBO for Really Sharp Dialogue Cutting remarks we've ricky you and I have discussed something that has a film that seems in the decade yes pop up I wonder if it is almost too I don't think it's quite on that I don't know how it got lost in the award cycle but it was the His latest film is actually an adaptation of Charles Dickens David Copperfield award cycle is while they're going to hold it until the spring From what from what I had heard it could be they revisionist take on David Copperfield narrative not that I'm very familiar with David for junior high the but the expectation more of a kind of deconstructed version of it and while there are kind of whimsical elements he employs colorblind casting so Dev Patel plays the lead roles that were traditionally white British roles in in the text a kind of interesting reflection the writing process itself which is really central to the narrative of that's about the writing process how how anachronistic is it from the original yeah I mean there there were moments of disruption within it I expected it to be a little bit more Meta but it doesn't seem to do that very much vice of of death of Stalin is that you have actors kind of speaking in their own voices are these characters speaking accents that are representative of their station I think I Like in the bottle company there aren't posh accents no no I think they I feel like it's a it's a film that kind of plays as particularly for decades rate right this was I thought this was very engaging where you have to similar films come out at the same why they're pushed in maybe that's why they're holding it maybe that's why they're holding it till later because they don't want to be mid eighteen hundreds adaptation yeah well maybe it works better is I didn't go in having looked at anything from it was the this one had a lot of light in vibrant yeah very vibrant even even in the in color and in those into outdoors right we're moving so yeah I who is also a veteran of IANNUCCI work kind of the star.

"And then ultimately has a change of heart and and leaves behind behind and this was written directed. I believe by Andrew Heckler who is scheduled to appear here in the broadening cinema and we will have a discussion to follow up with them about the film and its contents on when he thinks about it right. we'll have another community discussion film with a dangerous idea on Thursday. September twenty six. This film was directed by Stephanie. Welsh approach and hope is that she also be here in present and a professor in anthropology. Professor Sir Twenty is who is featured in the film. I will be here to discuss it as well. And it looks at history of of Well how racist but employed politically and how divisions have been set in race and some of the genetic doc offerings and bad science that have been proffered in order to make people believe that there could be superiority. Be The within our species and at so that should be a very interesting discussion. especially coming off of Sunday screening about the Ku Klux Klan We wrap up the semester on Sunday. September twenty nineth with a joint offering between Sustainability Studies and the Department of Theology with the discussion of follow and we will be unpacking two thousand eleven. The tree of of life directed by Terry Malick. Harry this is our our quick Bush these three pumped or winners. Oh wow the this this this month. We got a lot packed up. And for those of you who haven't seen the film at Stars Brad. Pet and SEAN PENN as intergenerational Figures Brandon is the abusive father. Ashok Penn is the son who grew up on your him later in life. It's all broody Rudy Rudy. Yeah he gets. This gives them space to be. BROODY YUP source. There's actually the so the thing about one of the things that stands out about. This film are the The the kind of science fiction elements to it or the the The shots of the Cosmos and all that although sequences and he has it Malik has some extended pieces about that. Right that that that I've never really it was interesting. They were screening at film festivals. And they never really. I forget what they're called but they never made it beyond the festival circuit and the cutting room floor stuff in Brad Pitney area. It's one of them. The name escaping me. Yeah so there's that piece but the connection is GonNa make with Malik is we actually have an alum Colton Williamson. WHO's working with him on his new film Hidden life which is coming out at Christmas this year and Alex. Alex work really draws draws a big audience here on campus. There's a lot of interests from philosophy theology kind of in his in his films even ones that have been kind of critically not not not as not as embraced not as embraced as strongly as tree of life was among people have kind of stuck with them. I'd be interested in serious going forward to. Yeah he's he gets a big. He gets big turnout. You left one out. I noticed in one that I'm actually kind of fascinated but yeah I'm gonNA love sure. Peter Jackson on the weekend of September twentieth and twenty. First Oh sorry I skipped over. They data. Yeah you're GONNA be sorry. We have five screenings of they shall not grow old. which is a film? People have been asking us for for quite some time. I don't WANNA lose that Koran which is Peter Jackson is pretty remarkable effort to take footage From World War One. I believe British soldiers and for store that footage and colorized is it But in a way that kind of gives it You know gives it a particular new life in I assume is designed designed to kind of puts you in the experience of of what those soldiers were going through right during the war The what's interesting with this is. There's a lot of focus in the restoration on the color. Obviously that makes a huge impact. I think what really gets gets to. People is less the color in the shading and more so the fact that the If you know the the frame rate of these films with veggies working herky-jerky by today standards and they're entirely smoothed out a has a home movie vibe to it now it looks like it. Looks like it's shot contemporary. Yeah I'm teaching. Yeah I'm I'm teaching course documentary this fallen. I'm curious to see what kind of the implications are of. You know the the efforts to make this more realistic. You know what are some of the problematic aspects of with that in terms of addressing motion addressing color those kinds of things that the that updating it becomes realistic tooth right there has to be modern in order to to have a direct replication of what was happening well and to have more resonance with an rights now too so that's a very good a lots of lots of Kind of a little bit all over.

"As time in. Hollywood is fifty years old so politicians like the midpoint between when that's being depicted and Tarintino skyrockets and I personally think that there's a lot of personal eulogizing going on and what time the Hollywood so it's interesting going back. The two routes. I've been going through them recently. 'cause might teenage children are now interested in Tarantino and it's It's what what I find striking is you what was so definitive about Tarantino's work early on is the non linear aspect of it and how he's really just kind of moved beyond that which I think is a good thing like that it was it became so crucial to define his films by doing things out of C- kind of piecing together the different moments within the film which is a big part of pulp fiction. Now that's not. You don't really have that in the later films. You have strong flashbacks right. That's a right but it's all but but not in the way. Ah What was you know the thing that people found so one of the kind of the immediate thing people found interesting about fiction was trying to piece together when things happen in relation to each other which is also co opted very quickly by their filmmakers. I can see where it gets played out gets played. There's actually I saw a list online of of of the The top ten Tarantino knockoffs of the nineties. Eight heads in a double bag like go down that list. So they're all bad but that would that would be interesting series on its own right. Yeah Yeah so sorry with fiction and that will be Thursday at seven PM. August twenty ninth for screen the year. We're going to do a weekend run then. And this is Labor Day weekend of book smart release in the Spring to wide acclaim directed by Olivia Wilde. And I think you framed it this way way in some ways this year's eighth grade it sort of feels like it feels. I mean. I think they were hoping it was going to be this year's Ladybird but eighth grade seems like a more kind of reasonable You know parallel to it although Yeah I think one of the things that they were trying to do is upset. The kind of the BRO comedy comedy in in in some of the same ways that that bridesmaids did you know several years ago or good boys. Yeah there is. You know there's that aspect of is this film as well that there's there's a raunch factor but but Yeah I think it's The great you know the fact that it just came the summer and kind of came and went probably a little bit more quickly than people had expected. Good time to bring it back then. The next week we have our Thursday film is our time Noise Temple. which is Carl's got us is regardless regardless regatta? Snow is you. Can you can add an as is his new film and Carlos. Martinez is a Mexican artwork core. Who has been gobbling up international acclaim for two decades Yeah has definitely stayed outside of of the trump errant of directors who went Oscars. But he has Still I mean. He's he's definitely stayed in that art circuit. Oh yeah he's yeah he's more than his contemporary. He's he kind of takes his time with his films. Like we get a film every every isn't it like three or four years. He's not adequately prolific. He takes our time yes he takes his time. Okay and the the The part here's pretty great. Actually I love it so he is doing auto fiction. The film is about put a world famous poet who lives on a ranch that is used to raise bulls that are uh bullfighting bulls and the ranch's run by his wife and the two have a marriage that opens opens up and closes and there's jealousy and explores all of that. Making a very interesting is the fact that Carlos those are got us plays the world famous poet much like a real famous director and his real life wife. Natalia Lopez plays his wife in the film film. Yeah and I and some of the other characters who move in and out I think are actually the people who are probably part of some scenes in their own life and it is. It's it's a longer films three hours. It goes by very quickly and there are. There are some shots. If you like his films you'll recognize there's a gopro on a bull's head at some point guard. It's it's really gorgeous and very very good family study the that weekend we have to film spying with one. Another we start with the three faces Jaffar He's new film. This continues his tradition of recent films. Like this is not a film and taxi and Dan Close Curtain Lows Curtin. Yep where. He's very much playing with his role in reality and in the film and and in this he plays version of himself or a he acts himself. Yeah as a an actress. Alerts him to a young girl whose family doesn't allow will not allow her to go to acting school in Tehran. Art School and so oh. He travels to the rural part of Iran with this actress to try and convince a family to go. And it's great. I mean when we showed we show taxi taxi a few years ago and we had a huge response to it I was I was pleasantly surprised because I mean it's it's such an. It's such an effort for him to make films Given the if you just look up his circumstances he's been sort of banned for making films but he makes them anyway but we had. We had a really great response to his last piece complementing. That is Julian Schnabel's new bio-pic of Vincent Van Gogh at Eternity Skate. I'd say similarly to what we were saying with the wind that shakes the barley. This is not a van Gogh was born then He. This bad thing happened in school and then he met this this person and then he painted that it is really focused on brief period toward the end of his life where he ruminates on his loss fees not just an art but of the universe as he looks at the end of his career in this was it's Willem. Defoe is now many for an Oscar Oscar for this right for best actor and Inch novel does this thing of you know. distorted perspective that he didn't diving on the butterflies is while that kind of carries over this in a different way but kind of reflecting van Gogh zone disabilities So if it's if you liked loving Vincent Yep you might like this yeah my my very different subject wise. It's you know I guess it's in the same but it is. It has a very different very different style. Thirty different stuff but something interesting or if you like the diving bell the butterfly if I do think you will like yeah. This is closer to that then. Our National Theatre live get kicked off with fleabag alive. Dave and fleabag is a was a one woman. Show is a one woman. Show obviously still going Redden by I waller bridge who is still pending the new James Bond Film. I think that's what I heard. And then the one woman show is adapted for Amazon. Yes I had to think for platform of Wick to season series Great series worth with watching Recommended and a lot of people didn't have the opportunity to see the live show so this is a chance to see what started the whole the whole Finan. Yeah there's a conceit in the series of direct address that. I'm curious that that seems to be more of a piece with the stage The stage you the staging of the of the live the live version of it. So I'm curious of that when you go back to that after having seen the series which is the way I will be seeing it. What impact impact? That has and Like are we have other national theatre live performances coming up throughout the semester. Check those out out quick preview. I think we got some kinky boots in there. We also have some one man governors and mid summering night's dream and kinky boots roots is in the National League relapse series. Yeah they heard musical serious. Okay the Ram that come into okay now. Every Friday before a home football game at seven thirty will be showing the recent bio. Doc Harrisburg about Father Ted. Hess Berg Professor Emeritus Meredith's of the university in his life and all the work he did both on and off campus both in the United States and around the World Oh and that starts with Friday September thirteenth and basically if there's a home football game and we are dark every Saturday hey at home football games but Friday night before you can go to pep rally and then come here to the Browning cinema and a What what audience after audience here would cause a very gripping documentary about the life and times if either Harrisburg and we didn't extended run of this back in May many of you? You will remember many of our longtime listeners And those were mostly sold out almost almost all of them sold out so You WanNA get your tickets early for these and still oh not available on streaming platforms.

USA film from about five years ago. starring Kevin Costner. And it's in this Kinda Disney line of film. Remember the titans a Not a mighty ducks but the mighty ducks more serious.

On Thursday September nineteenth our partnerships ships with the KROC Institute for International Peace Studies continues with a film night. School not starring Kevin. Hart not not starring.

"I think it was like a a great a white and gold. Yup Yup Yup and I was like. Is that the white album. No parents don't have the real but But I think you know just in terms of the way he goes about this in in. You know he's done this. It's more than once in his career. Where he's you know kind of gone to historical subjects and tried to play with definitely play with conventions you get a little bit of this poison? you get a little bit of a bunch of it and I'm not. I'm not there which was a film ricky was thinking about the introducing here. Did you really. Yeah Okay it screened here. Whenever came out late two thousands and thousand eight so but yeah? That's one two. That's when hopefully at this point you don't have to go to Ace Video Colin VCR. Bob Dylan was great in the role of Kate. Blanchett I just WanNa say she was the Best Dylan. Right of all the Dylan's she was I still. They'll think that that's what he what he looked. Like Cate Blanchett so The the I've never seen superstar but it's legitimately available now or it's still. I think there was. There was a period where they had kind of given up on giving now. And I think it's actually you've been like screened in cinemas and that's why I'm thinking it has to have some type of yeah someone's someone pulled together the rights and they made a deal where they just they just sort of throw up their hands and so we don't care anymore but it's also lucas say that because it's the carpenters and because of the barbies and whatnot that that it's terrible or something. No it's not it's very straight it's actually you know if you actually I mean I think the first time you see it you laugh because it's like it seems so absurd that they would take this approach but if you actually it's a very it's very harrowing actually go through it and you see how her you know her illness develops yes and and what what impact it has people need to be careful not to confuse that with the Molly Shannon Savita now superstar. which was I almost chose? That's the real life story right. Jesus Christ superstar is another pretty good bio-pic there's a The TV movie version of the Karen Carpenter story which has The girl who is in the hockey movie with with Roblo Cynthia something forget her name. But it's bad it's really bad. I was actually the movie. Didn't he did like a hockey movie in the eighties and young blood or something. Like youngblood. Youngblood youngblood Cynthia Camphor. You could look it up but anyway there's but it's funny because I almost brought in was in terms of like cheesy TV movies. I do have a soft spot for the Nineteen Ninety S bio-pic of of the beach. Boys forget what it's like summer summer titles or something and it's actually quite. I'm quite moving particularly the guy who plays a Brian Wilson. He's actually there's IT. There was a mini series later on in at the end of the nineties. which is which I don't like very very much? I'm guessing Mike Love the more recent eleven mercy love and mercy parts of it. I like do you like the whole of it it I just remember really enjoying it because it was not a typical. Yeah portrait of an artist film. I thought so and Who Don't look alike? Yeah when I when I asked my dear wife Nicole mcglaughlin. What are my top three bio-pics she said Love mercy should be? That's one of her three well. And that's how that's another one where you know when you start to think about..

films that arguably surpass at least equal experiences Notre Dame University of Notre Dame du You just sequel to the Notre Dame Years Paulette but but we're gonNA talk about sequels that we think are I mean we turn to you it's unfair to because I've done this before I won't balk there aren't so many sequels are really hard and I think I get to it I will say something about on you're going to choose all three of mine so okay yeah I Overlap but sequels are really hard and I think I figured out one of the reasons of which there are only three the original original trilogy although I I actually like indifferent to come in and say my first one is empire strikes back it's like yeah of course ah sequels on the whole especially of the bigger blockbuster Hollywood variety often I think most of them I mean in the Hollywood variety sci-fi fantasy action a choice that many people who like that genre would make it's Eh on any directed the story the first one if people remember was was I think even if there's some box office success they're just not very good films Terminator Two which I think is a good film and film really just hit it out of the park so ended up being like a chief marine colonial marine in this I had a thing if Ricksen Kerry who was the girl in the film Paul Reiser is in this it's a great cast and that really helps it was is the last survivor survivor of this horrible attack she in the crew acid for blood and eats people and then regurgitates the worst possible thing you can imagine if you go into space and in fact the motto do you remember the I don't know why it's Okay Tom did something really interesting I think we probably all have in common why these sequels work biller film in the Academic Universe there's tons of scholarship a lot of it relating yes I think outshines the rest of the series and does all you know the alien is still kind of Mr that's right and it's beautiful also great cast and the first one the last survivor is found in space she's in stasis ah there are these new colonists on the planet where she's just come from fifty seven years and the drama goes from there and for those who haven't seen it you really should treat yourself to it's really well done feminists I mean she's a Finnish trope in a lot of ways but that she's truly a being the leader of the Marines after some really bad things happen a really Great Seymour own dissertation and on my own work is is on was on Lee's character was this great scene towards the end where I'm not spoiling it out and at one point she says to the girl who she's found in this colony who's she's becoming a kind accident and others have great one they're great one liners in this game overbid analogy is if you think about this like the you know in relatives empire strikes back great it's actually one of the best looking of the Star Wars is beautiful but it's also but then you make people cared about the stories like whatever genre if it does morphine whatever add on to like moving along such an ego maniac yeah well I well at least the original vary last filming doesn't Count Shit I don't think it's terrible I watched them recently with my son can you what's the one what's the one you try try it keeps Susan people who know how to put their stamp on something well allowing the basics of what we can't go see this is we could talk about this stuff day deuce swallow like what are they do to bring it back right now or I don't know maybe oh you are strong is that something we can say on on air on that's now and stray cupcake this is fluff I don't have the opportunity to see it because my kids have gotten too old and I don't have grown is a film that pays off pretty well if you have seen the original because I think it is very intelligent for those who aren't familiar with Pennington he's a bear who likes Marmalade from the original plankton is back Sally Hawkins based his mom Hugh it from the doctor who yeah he was doctor who for a little bit yeah the Malcolm My neighborhood is Peter Cappelli yell at Paddington Yeah he's curmudgeon neighbor some ways like a bond film and Nicole Kidman is out really good I'm going to ice time it's like a hundred and eighty nine fresh the grant is that doesn't voice Pankin and ahead oh well then that's scandalous yes about it being very English scandal and like a lot of sequels origin stories at this point he's already made his neighborhood he is the he wants to buy a pop up book for a loved one and doesn't have the money and so yeah but it's it's the amazing but then the stakes go so out of whack a so he enters the British Industrial Britta's it's great it's like nine to five right for their busby Berkeley moments throughout and it's just it is a desert you don't need it don't you the perfect airplane movie I can't think of a better airplane it was not see jumped to a number three of trilogy so when I started thinking about this the easy so I'm GonNa get to another trilogy in a minute that stood out was the APU trilogy which for for film historians is hi and I'm GonNa talk about the third film in the trilogy which is the world of APU I have to watch all three of these films this one works really well is just kind of standalone a WHO's a poor young man growing up in a poor child growing up oh boy the second film as a teenager and this is him as a young adult so on the his own past that kind of gives you enough information to follow what's going on either kind of more realistic approaches to filmmaking or or more kind of inspiring film that just follows up who as he but yet also you know narrative moves moves along quickly enough that there are enough events came out for all three it was great in people who were kind of deeply invested but then you know just kind of hard to the they can be tough on early film in terms of things that they you no it's it's it's things of the Star Trek Universe I'm sorry star Trek to the wrath of Khan four is a joke it's the one they go California but that's well there's it was like spock's half brother and oh is that searchers spark oh I know there's some sport lives there so anyways Star Trek to this was an emotional choice for me in a way because given a story or not was great about six one of the reasons I started to choose it as that unbelievably sentimental and they were all in this is not about what they're all alive and they're like more movies and adaptations Chris Pine and all of that but this is the original cast and so what's uh-huh and I could say more about that most people know but the first film it's considered a failure there've been lots of anticipation the cast right and there was reference yes and fans really created into the filming universe which is really important you already fan of this of the TV series like eight But I had related because I would I was watching then I started reading the books and in the the TV series is in the eighties and then the movies are in the nineties right right on but in you've got purchase combative who's got a shaved head got Steven it's actually really interesting it you might say they copped out in a way because they based Star Trek to the wrath of Khan on an original my favorite actors Ricardo Montalban who is wonderfully poison charismatic and it was prosthetic it was not that was his body so I'm Montalban played con he was this genetically sort of mutants like unbelievably banish them to a planet LCD Alpha five which which is this program that's supposed to regenerate dead planets and it's like created by I think Martha Clinton's Mother yes Martha Pumpkins mother I cannot remember her name a CD Alpha six has exploded he's been banished to this fifteen twenty years before crew live this horrible life his wife died almost all of his tribe all of these things come together and there's genesis and he stills genesis and he does creates havoc as the movie he's fantastic he's a great villain but he's also very sympathetic one looks great in this he's on his game spock bones there's great chemistry and forgot a sense of the cast yeah and this film was all about the Camaraderie the thing that happens at the end of this terms of relationships so I the time watched it multiple times loved I mean in the in the there's it's more like bravado and he's also good at like you know when you actually you actually never I actually have not seen any of the other look like an exercise starting to get old teenager just what I'm you only second to con okay he is an unbelievable Klingon he's worth seeing anyway back to it now that's one that's one that I think you'd support that choice anyway ricky. Do you have a second film on your list that you'd like to discuss it's just that's the time traveling glass to test some days before nineteen hundred live and it's bonkers movie so you for very weird ways so and to give a rundown gremlins is also a comes under the Spielberg tent but he doesn't director Joe Dante there's no reason to make a sequel why would you do that you know he wanted to break the mold and even rarer is for someone to take that kind of clause ah what happened with the sequel to grandma's is a very polarized audience you have people yes sequel it's hard to know to whom you're going to who you are piece right so that that no one would ultimately really like it was it was a bomb not isn't it was great yeah yeah it's a perfect movie here's it's three talk about five years ago but it never happened saying not gremlins to is a it is very there's a point where Leonard Maltin comes into the movie and talks about not liking it south and puts that into the movie and this is an age the moment where the in the theater and it's as it just wants to make a film about making a gremlins movie in a lot of ways to to bring in for kids in that's the track that gizmo takes Lena Family Opera Marilyn Monroe I'm it also fits in neatly in talking about again originally wanted the Gremlins I think in my space or something like oh no just put them in a skyscraper gets what it's like stay tuned actually nineteen ninety two I think they're very similar what's the so it sorry it's Lincoln's birthday awful yeah I really it is it's the film dismantling the original one it's great Italy remember it I just remember I am a little more serious about my drama because let you know even like going back to that era of the simpsons now it just doesn't work quite as well you know very very prevalent extends out to Quentin Tarantino arguably and he really open to visiting places so we gotta think about bringing him Oh that would be a what Hannah which when you're GonNa say I okay I'm going to talk about relationships I love it love it love it so this so this is the AH relationship that unfolds between Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy I can't remember what their your age to the characters and I tend to see them when they're new and so you know the things that they talk about.
"shot" Discussed on Establishing Shot
"Wars is beautiful but it's also but then you also also have enough of a script behind it to kind of keep you the best while set. I think what's I think. What's great about these choices? And then we all make people cared about the stories like whatever genre if it does morphine. Whatever cameron actually really cared about the story so he wasn't afraid to advance either true? It's so some people will take the goodwill built up on the first one just cash out on moving along up be such an ego maniac. React to try to make it. But that's what that's what's good with all the alien films pretty much. Yeah well well. At least the original vary last filming doesn't count but yeah alien. Three is great in the last action. Russian yeah no alien resurrection I tried I actually sit completely terrible. I watched them recently with my son. Can you the film you're talking about. Are you taking action with. We resurrect where are you talking about. Which one is known a writer? Okay forget it no. That's terrible what's the one. What's the one you try try? It keeps the abuse that one. That vision is in Greece loaded. It's it's cloudy but it's still but it's smart that they're choosing people who know how to put their stamp on something well allowing coming. It's still habits original flavor I was I was I was speaking on behalf of Alien Covenant which you probably hate but it's just because it does I think it just does the the basics of what we can't go see this is. We could talk about this stuff day. DEUCE swallow island Lou. The story like as the Star Wars Universe done because Disney has is really diluted the story and I feel like really Scott the next one is going to be really telling about like what do they do to kind of bring it back right now or I don't know maybe be they. Maybe it doesn't just let it go all right. That's that one that's a that's A. That's a bold confident opening choice getaway so you is that something we can say on on air. Oh that's great. Okay so ricky. What is your first first second where we're going to be a third? We are now and stray cupcake. This is fluff and find and that would be the recent Paddington to. Aw It's cute. It's I've heard such great things but I so I don't I don't have the opportunity to see it because my kids have gotten too old and watch it on your own I could I could. I have to get myself in the space to do that. I do think in Europe. I mean this is a movie that can stand. You can certainly watch itself but it is a film that pays off pretty well if you have seen the original Because I think it is very intelligent. ZSA again about how it advances a story and its own ways But just to give the general idea of what's happening For those who aren't familiar with Pennington. He's a bear who likes Marmalade and he's in England and he's automated bear the talk. Cgi I very very well done good work there and the cast from the original plankton is back. Sally Hawkins Bases Mom Hugh Hugh Bonnabel pays his dad. Peter Cappelli Aka Micon law professor Ruben Foul. The guy from the thick of it from the doctor who yeah he was doctor. Who for a little bit? Yeah the Malcolm most recent doctor right now. Turner Julie Walters. They're all back Jack and that's the core of Paddington Family neighborhood. Is Peter Cappelli yell at Paddington. Yeah he's a comedian neighbor He gets his comeuppance and it works. And what's mine up Pinxton is they are swapping and villain so it's almost some some ways it's like a bond film and Nicole Kidman is out and in is hugh grant and Hugh grant grant plays a Thespian. And it's really good. I'm GonNa Asu Asu. He's he's really great when this came out last year this had when it was because I think he might in January last year and it had like the reviews were off the charts the highest ice time. Yeah it's like a hundred and eighty nine freshman. Oh No it's no but seriously it had home. Yeah and I'm the those are actual believe One thing of note talking about Hugh Grant is that doesn't voice of Pantin and those who are in the new TV series in the very English scandal. A scandal whichever who were lovers grant ahead. Oh well then that's scandalous. Yes about it being very English scandal to. I don't know what the story is something like like that. But the the great thing about Paddington Paddington. One is an origin story And like a lot of sequels origin stories is out of the way. We don't have to deal with that and now we can get to daily life minutia and just kind of the tough things that pangs and has to face At this point he's already made his neighborhood. He is the light the sunshine in the hope of his neighborhood. Everyone loves him Except Peter Capacity but it gets into daily things like he wants to buy a pup book for a loved one and doesn't have the money and so has to get a job and he washes windows and that's a whole scene and it's very it's like my life in South Bend. Yeah but it's it's it's Childish Children's Book Element And that sense of like money in value and time it's pretty amazing but then the stakes go so out of To the point where. He is framed for stealing pop up book and sent to jail. I've seen the pictures of him in like jail suit. Yeah it's amazing so so he enters the British Industrial Britta's System trump and reforms. You know 'cause he and the start making desserts and it's great. It's like nine to five right but also embraces the whole thing. It's very colorful. But there are these moments of the human ornament and they are. They're wonderful for their busby Berkeley moments throughout and it's just it is a desert and it's a great one and it's very warming and there. We put it on my list to watch it regardless of whether I have a child until don't need it. Don't you the perfect airplane movie. I can't think of a better airplane was not it was not on the choice of selections the my last flight. I won't tell you what was because it wasn't anything very good but something that is very good would be the third so I'll actually see jumped to a number three of trilogy so when I started thinking about this the easy way to start organizing Thinking about what would be good to talk about as a sequel would be to jump to some of the more notable film trilogies of the past So get to another trilogy in a minute. but I was thinking about like the Rome trilogy from Or the war trilogy from her Cellini and a couple of others that are escaping my mind right now but the one that stood out was the APU trilogy which for for Film Historians. Is You know kind of considered one of the great Series of films within within film history which comes out of India in the nineteen fifties Directed by sheet. I and I'm GonNa talk about the third film in the trilogy which is the world of APU which actually serves as arguably the most accessible of the three films probably the easiest kind of point of entry if you wanted to if you think like oh it's too much to I have to watch all three of these films. This one works really well is just kind of standalone Film so Ray was a raid took on the project of redacting These very popular books about Apu this character APU WHO's a poor young man growing up in a poor child growing up in in the Bengal region of India and we see him over the course of the films as a as as we see him in? The first film is Oh boy the second film as a teenager and this is him as a young adult So on the on the one hand you know seeing the other films seeing kind of what he's experienced certainly informs your understanding understanding of this character. But you can. But it's also there's a point at which he addresses his own past that kind of gives you enough information to follow what's going on but For me it's like it's one of the best examples when you go back to this period of film history of We're seeing a lot of Trends toward either kind of more realistic approaches to filmmaking or or more kind of Indulgent melodramatic approaches and a right is able to kind of combine. The two in this really lovely Sad moving Inspiring film that just follows up who as he becomes becomes a young man and I don't know much much more I can say about. It's a film you know. I'd definitely recommend seeing on screen because it just has a pictorial beauty to it but yet also you know. Narrative moves moves along quickly enough that there are enough events happening in this characters. Life that you'll be able to kind of stay with it so if we show that one two years years ago we did we did the whole. Yeah and we had people who came out for all three it was great and people who are deeply invested. But then you know just just kind of seeing that one on its own I showed it to a group of students in a class that I'm teaching this semester. And it's probably been the best. The most well received and students are kind of hard to the. They can be tough on early film in terms of things that they things that are outside of their realm of experience. But this this went over really well so so. That's that's didn't have anything that deep that's my way. No it's it's it's alright but I'll get I'll balance it out hopefully anyway Paula. What is your second and I'll keep this moving because I tend to be long winded star Trek to say things about the Star Trek universe? I'm sorry Star Trek to the wrath of Khan I had to choose between it and star trek six the undiscovered country and it was a tough choice choice. Three four and five threes. Not Bad four is a joke It's one California but that's well there's exact change and whales and stuff. It's not a great story in my opinion and five is fine and then six is amazing. five is one that involves. It's like spock's half brother and that searchers spark searchers three guys. It's kind of a lawsuit awesome. It's okay but then six mazing I am not so I know there's some sport losers so anyway star Trek to this was an emotional choice for me in a way because given given that I'm leaving and thinking about cohort send pasts and futures. It's that kind of film. Actually in the whole star Trek cast. If you're into a story or not was great about six one of the reasons. I started to choose it as that. The CAST signs off. It's the literal last film of the original Castle Star Trek Universe and so there's a lot there piece of unbelievably sentimental and they were all and this is not I mean I don't mean isn't about where they were all alive That is obviously since changed in the Star Trek Universe after that moved into these all bizarre directions and there are all kinds of spin offs. And now there's like the spin offs and spinoffs and and they're like more movies and adaptations Chris Pine and all of that. But this is the original cast and so what's interesting about star trek to drive by Nicholas Meyer. And of course it's based on the characters from the gene roddenberry storyline created in the sixties And I could say more about that. Most people know but the first film for the cast from the original show Star Trek the motion picture which came out in nineteen. Seventy nine did not do well at the box office commercial..
