Baltimore Ravens star quarterback tests positive for COVID-19
"One other quick thing I just want to get in is the whole Ravens Steelers mess? Um, because somebody within the organization, the Ravens organization clearly did not do anything. In terms of following fight following the protocols for covert 19, and thus it has run through their team, including star quarterback Mark Jackson, who tested positive He is going to be out for a while, and they move that game. From Thursday to Sunday to Tuesday and then after that, as a consequence, moved the Thursday night game. Um, get the next Thursday. I came against the Cowboys. I think the following Sunday anyway. These dominoes began to fall on my question for you is Should the Ravens just have been forced to forfeit the game? You know, that's that's like a last resort. Yeah, but they're really just seems like they're bending over backwards to give the Ravens a real chance to win. Eyes. I mean, they could have played it tomorrow on the Ravens. Gonna have to call up all the practice squad guys and play with what you got right? I didn't do that. I mean, I understand. Then play on Thanksgiving. It all kind of was happening that unfolded but they didn't. They moved it from yesterday to Tuesday to really give the Ravens shot. I know the Steelers are unhappy about this, and I don't blame him for the Steelers were furious about this. You know, the Steelers have, um Really? I mean, never really had a tough year. I mean, they basically lost their bye week. You know the week that they were supposed to be the bye week. Um, they had a game scheduled for that Sunday and then the game got up Now we can't play that game. So we're gonna put that we're gonna postpone that game. Well, wait a minute. We practiced all week. You know, so now, okay? We didn't play Sunday. Big deal, but we've lost our bye week in effect. And now here you are you've got if you're the Steelers, you're looking at this. Okay? We're going to play on Thanksgiving day. Oh, no. We're going to play on Sunday, OK? What? Now? We're gonna play on Tuesday. Is that right? So I mean the Steelers? Yeah. The stewards are furious. I mean, there. Were there every right to be. So my question again is What should be the consequences for the Ravens. If you don't think they should forfeit, Okay, That's fine. I understand. There's certainly a Precedent there that I remember the last time an NFL game was forfeited. I honestly maybe never in my lifetime. You whack him with a penalty? Yeah, as in terms of draft pick, I think so. High draft pick. Uh, it's I mean, it's negotiable. I mean, I know they don't want to go the forfeit route. The NFL doesn't want to go the forfeit route, especially especially when you've got It's a big rivalry game, you know, Ravens store loses. He's a big robbery. They don't want to lose the TV revenue. That's the biggest thing. They don't want to lose the TV money if they get that they'll be making off. Off a standalone primetime game, But I'm not going to do that. But there will be sanctions. I'm feel that given the way things have gone down with the Ravens this year that yeah, they're gonna They're probably going to get fined. The league's probably gonna find them and they're probably gonna take away draft pick would be my guess. The interesting new Watcher I

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. Because that's the Oh God I've done this in class before we track the How you get to to focus features but anyway So there's Actually could be Miramax film that would make a lot..

"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. So if I could remember anything from I can't remember anything that was in those stacks because early days of child rearing tend to be a blur. Kevin can probably attest to that. So. Anyway. So now we're back into, we're back to the streaming era where we just keep kind of finding. Interesting things So Ricky, let me turn to you first We don't have a guest today. It's just the two of us because we're not ready to have someone else kind of invade. our space plexiglas. Doesn't go. In so much Yeah. Protect only protective measure. 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.

So So as as we've all been living through our period of quarantine it's been we've faced some challenges we are at a point where we've just started up our. Sister here at Notre Dame and we've had to kind of shut it down a little bit. So we'll see by by the time we get this out to all of you. Maybe things will have changed again. I expect. They will We're kind of moving target situation where classes have now gone online supposedly for a two week period, we'll see if it goes beyond that. But in the meantime time capsule time capsule we're we're we're not supposed to time stamp these podcasts, but now they're evergreen but but not really. Not under the circumstances, all those rules are have been thrown out because we thought it would be good to first of all get back together were ricky and I, haven't even been able to be in the same room for for extended periods. We have actually setup ourselves in the Browning cinema with a plexiglas barriers. In case you're wondering why or why we might not be wearing masks we are sufficiently distant So hopefully, we're taking all the precautionary measures to to prevent spread of The dreaded covid nineteen we just got yeah, we got skinner boxes basically. Yeah. With a microphone. As are only friends and Kevin crews manages here with US recording and he is also secured in Plexiglas in Kevin is actually masked. So he's a little better than the rest of us but you should all be wearing masks as much as possible as much as you can except maybe when you eat and even then just try to find a way to shove food through the sides we are going to talk about. So we're GONNA talk about life in quarantine but specifically some of the things that we've been watching during quarantine. Usually we we try to tell you what's coming up at the cinema. There's not anything coming up. Now. We've transitioned to victory garden. Or victory classroom, we've been put to a higher purpose during this moment right So nothing is showing in the cinema. We will be presenting some things via virtual cinema and you will if you receive emails from the Barlow Charts, you'll be kept abreast of those and some things that are coming down the line, but we'll let the semester gets settled. Before staking out into those unchartered waters. Great. So yeah. So in the meantime we are going to give you just some insights into some things that we've been watching since everything kind of fell apart back in back in March very quickly that I might add I. Think our last podcast was just before that was because we didn't Oscars podcast with Marc Torma. So. A Lot's happened since then which is now like a February. Early. February right. Yeah exactly and now it's going to be well now in the late April is is it moved back to late April I believe so I think that's probably going to To move again amidst my various obsess obsessive wikipedia. Searches I was looking up the I. Think it was the Nineteen Nineteen eighty-eight Oscars broadcast because I was watching a little bit of fatal attraction on TV. Curious how how it showed up at the Oscars. But but that broadcast was April eight. So. Yeah. I always think of it as being the last week the La- like remember when it was like Sunday night and March or Monday night. And say started a used. It used to be Monday night. Monday and then they moved because. Track meets and my parents wouldn't. Let me I go to the track meets they record the Oscars they wanna give spoilers and then I would watch it the next morning not go to school. Is like if I go to school it's going to be spoiled yeah and generous and they were very generous. They were they were good with the sick note. They were flexible work. A lot of flack was hybrid. Hyper. Class. Last shelter in place and watch watch live events before they'll be ruined Yeah. So thank you for that. Sure. Sure. That's what quarantine is quarantines away to in our inner as we kind of dig through our own past as or as well as discovering new things. We we get. We get brought back to those cheerful moments back when we didn't have to distance in mass can do all those good things. So although not share I think. Routinely about how challenging this would be in the non streaming era I rented you know people persevere read more books. But the sheer volume of movies I watch right I mean sometimes it's like film festival levels like five or six a day Other Times at seven or eight. Now like it's Like. It's definitely one feature film today. Yeah it's I made me think of it makes me think of you know just sort of past experiences when I was in. College. I managed our campus video store and there was one spring break where I just decided to stay on campus and just basically like rated the video store in kind of hold up with all the with all of these VHS tapes for the week But then also I, it makes me think of when my daughter was forced born blockbuster video used to have a deal 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..

"To Bryce Harper support play ending market guessing. My money are not saying. Hey speaking the truth bro. Somebody's got to say at least you manned up and said it good for him. I snowman has a beast to best left so Blake. Snell saying I'm not paying playing for less money. And bryce Harper Grease. What do you think Jalen? I think this is WYNC keeping it. Privilege goals wrong dynamics. Baseball OP- talked about for so very long are so how they're covered by the media and the public that you can make statements like this that represent such elitism. Imagine if a basketball player was making three hundred thirty million dollars had inaugur say during a pandemic that he supports somebody else. That says you probably shouldn't consider taking a pay cut during this period of time. Come home like this is so very tall. You know how much I love. Bryce Harvey's animal out there. But YOU CAN'T BE SUPPORT MISSED IT Tony Clark. Making those comments. I believe they'll get it done. The do they not realize they don't baseball because they could get the brand right? That's GONNA continue to nate fans of the what the fourth or fifth most popular sport in America. Do they not know that? This isn't just a baseball problem. This is an everyone problem. This is a global pandemic problem. There is less money coming in. So there's going to be less money going out and to say that I won't take the field for a penny less than I was originally initially agreed to but they also agreed to double the amount of games. So you're not going to get paid the same amount of money if you play half the games like it. Just it does seem a little tone deaf to me especially with the millions and millions and millions of record unemployed people that are newly unemployed. This pandemic I do think it is a bit tone deaf as you say. But what do you think about the fact that he's just playing games on twitch and then all of a sudden saying something that people talk about the next day on. Espn that the place. You need to be making multi million dollars decisions clearly. Yeah probably probably should probably focus on the video games by game Brazil and now it's time for some very important news. The matters Jalen says the last dance has been playing. We've all enjoyed it so much. It's of response some debates that we will not have now about who the goat is clearly. Michael Jeffrey Jordan. But there's some more goat talk going on in San Jose because we're all Corentin our homes staying home staying safe but these codes brokaw routine this. There was like a loose fence at farm and now these are just walking the streets of San Jose taking over. What would you do if that was your home right there you outside so? I'm not much of a Hunter. But that's a time that considered this. This is what kind of consider it right there. This time you know Jalen phone get my stock up. If I was down those are those are wild. Goats those those are farmed goats. That broke out of their farms. There's someone else's property the people of Pita please Jalen rose on twitter dough at you go. Or how do we go.

"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.

A fairly exhaustive gone through a fairly exhaustive process to bring bring back some of his better known films. And when I say better known. You know it's more to kind of film festival audiences and his work really never broke through. We're beyond More kind of limited arthouse screenings but they've they've produced new digital restorations of Some of his better features as well as a very large selection of short films which will be interspersing kind of atwill throughout the series We don't have. We don't quite have a plan yet for the shorts but we'll try to be. The idea will be pair up some of the shorts with features as they're appropriate But really great Iranian director Does really interesting things in terms of questioning. documentary representation kind of playing with documentary representation and not so much in a way that kind of confronts documentary or tries to sort of show it up but Leaves it leaves leaves it very open to kind of creates a shooting process where he leaves things very much open to kind of fusing together elements of fiction and nonfiction In really innovative eight of ways makes a lot of films that focus on the lives of children and education So they're really I think even though they may seem Foreign in the sense of You know kind of outside of what most viewers coming to the Bronx cinema kind of experience in their everyday life There's actually a a lot of really accessible aspects to his work in particular because of the fact that he tends to cast these non-professional child actors who are just incredibly credibly endearing. And it's a way to get around censorship. It is it is it has that was that was always a big part of it But also to address the importance of education. So what are you gonNA show so. We have Two of his earlier films to start off the traveler and homework in these are are again. Films centered around the lives of kids. One deals with a boy who's trying to go to a soccer match one dealing with School school experience. And then there's the Koker trilogy which is The TR- The trilogy of films that kind of made his name on the International Film Festival Civil Circuit and that includes Where is the friend's house in life goes on and through the olive trees and basically what it is these three film? The first film follows follows again. A story of a child living in the coca region in Iran and then that area is hit by an earthquake. Heard you get hit by an earthquake or You get hit by hurricane. I don't know if he had hit by earthquake. But there's an earthquake in that region which causes pretty major damage and then occurs Tummy decided to go back in film To subsequent films kind of looking at the aftermath of those events and then we close out with The film that brought brought him the greatest international recognition. That's a taste of cherry which one The Palm Door at the CON Film Festival in Nineteen Ninety seven not quite nineteen eighteen ninety nine but but a really great opportunity to see some of his works which really don't get screen very often and A chance to kind kind of see a side of Iran that we certainly don't get in most media representations of Of the country girl Stymie Fan. I'm Dan I have not seen any of these films surprisingly but I am very curious to find out where the friends houses so is the boy. which is there you go all right? He can't find his friend's house child. And I we go onto journalism. It might be as as a parent of young children. It might be a very frustrating film to watch. 'cause it's basically watching kid get lost so all right we've got that coming up and then we have the We have the global. LGBT GBI to Q.. Plus Film Festival returning for another year. And that's true so running from November third to November tenth this Interational the festival will is a real community base one so there are four venues that will be playing films here in the Browning Cinema over at Carroll Auditorium.

"The college football podcast with Herbie and comic now. Here's here's your host Kevin Gandhi outside the studio the morning starting to get frisked here in the northeast. There's nothing better than the fall season season here in Connecticut sons out but it feels like the air conditioners on outside perfect college football weather week four is upon us and and we got some great matchups David Pollack joining us to break down the big games as he always does on Fridays pollock how you feeling man. It is go Tom. There's there's so many good Games James. It's a buffet this weekend so let's just sit down and enjoy and watch all day long. Don't do chores. You're the wrong Saturday so tell you why if you're GonNa get it done on Sunday sit in front of the TV all day long. Just watch all these games. It's beautiful. We're GONNA we're. GonNa get this Saturday slate in a moment. I WANNA start here for tonight a key matchup. UTAH TRAVELLING TO USC tough loss for the trojans in Provo this past weekend but this is critical. This is critical Michael for the PAC twelve is Utah comes in undefeated. They're favored by four points. What's your initial thoughts when you look at this matchup well. I'll tell you what initially my first I thought would be for for Utah's defense. I I'd love their defense. I love their front seven how physical they are if you can't if you don't have multiple corners again and they can cover all these USC receivers that are going to throw the football the over the yard and listened Slava's Kinda came back down to Earth he had a he looked more like a freshman didn't he looked more human and now now we saw Gabriel by the way you see freshman look out of this world by the way against against Stanford too so we might have to pump the brakes a little bit on what we thought and that's that's why there's more games and more reaction but I just want to see the defense for Utah. This will show me if the defense is real. I have no doubt they'll be able to score some points and they'll be able to be physical go against USC but defensively are they going to be good enough in the secondary in the slots to be able to cover receivers and explosive office because I know they're going to be physical. Michael and I know they're going to be tough. I think this'll tell me if Utah's got a chance to to make the College Football playoff you make a great point though about slow come back to Earth also because he was on the rothe his first road test in that environment in Provo which was great and I thought that fence that game was fantastic the back and forth to me him I'm coming back home and the idea that he looked great in that second half against Stanford. We gotta figure things out on what that really means considering where we've seen Stanford what they've done and so far this season disappointing star for the cardinal for me. I look at Utah's offense and Huntley and loss. Are you comfortable with this team and the idea that they can make a run here to the playoff with the way this offense is constructed. I think it's still growing. I think it will still continue to get better anytime you switch coordinators. It's going to be something that takes some time but I'm very comfortable with what I've seen from huntly I'm not I don't think he's ever going to be a guy that sets the world on on fire but when you talk about completion percentage over eighty one last week you know over seventy three seventy four over seventy eight in week one. I mean you're talking about literally complete at least seven hundred ten passes and being ultra fish. He's not gonNA throw the ball. Byu's formulas not throw the ball fifty five times like we we talked about the other day with Lsu and Alabama just chucking the ball all over the yard. That's not who they are and what they are. That's not what they WANNA be. He didn't have to run this year as much either. He didn't have to take as many shots. What's as we've seen him taking the past. I think he's very efficient within this offense moss as as a physical downhill guy last week you saw receivers making big plays blaze for because it wasn't just Dinka dunk low yardage last week was the first time you saw some explosive plays down the field of of big game big chunk yards but I think that's what you want to see Thompson receiver in Moss at running back and maybe some more explosive elements but yeah I'm comfortable because I think they know who they are and I don't think Huntley is ever. We're going to be a guy that wants to throw the ball or needs to throw the ball thirty times a game forty times a game like Slovenia. I mean think about it. Slows has seventy five attempts. Huntley has forty five. Ah Excuse me here's fifty four tenths like this completely opposite styles of play and they're going to be all season long. If Huntley throws the ball ball more than twenty five to thirty times then you have to be worried about where the game is and what's going on 'cause that's. That's just not how the style is so who you got in this game this Utah. USC Matchup. I like Utah. I like Utah. Here's here's the thing that we said about the hell error for for USC and and this is not taking shots at anybody what I've seen from this group consistently is not enough grownups in the trenches that are going to slot people around to not enough meanness okay I don't. I don't see enough of that consistently. Utah's got some striking them. They got some. They got some dirt bag and in which is good. That's not a bad thing by the way they got. Some got some people that don't like people like I. I WANNA go recruit guys that don't like people especially defensively you gotta be able to hunt and play hard and and have a little nasty disposition to you and I I just I see more of that with Utah Trust Utah more than I trust. USC SO I give Utah the edge and I think they'll win the ballgame all right huge matchup here as we talk about Saturday games to let's let's dip into that noon. Contest and and Michigan is going on the road at Wisconsin last time we saw Michigan. They were taken to overtime and they were feeling tight fixed. Everything you'd think so just everything there. There's a lot of storylines in this contest to because they're traveling here they're going to Madison and the Wolverines or one in five on the road against ranked opponents under Jim horrible when you see this game and obviously you're being sarcastic with the by and trying to fix some of the things in the offense events. What is the one thing that stands out in this match up you ever started this season at any point in going when Michigan and Wisconsin Played Klay Chapter in week four of college football that shape patterson would have less yards than cone for for no way now with all the high absolutely not right. I mean cone literally. I don't even know his name yet because we hadn't heard about him yet but he was he has been the model of efficiency so far by the away doesn't have to be asked to do a lot hasn't turned the football over yet the opposite of what shape patterson like right now Michigan. I feel like could use this guy. I mean that's how that's how bad shape patterson has been to start the season. I Know Gaddis came over to change the offense. It doesn't look much different than it did not pushing people around upfront so I just I don't know how Michigan's GonNa win this game. I I wonder what they figure out offensively listen. They gotTA RUN SHAPE Patterson Moore. He's running back. I mean use him as in his athleticism if you don't I don't see how you win. Ballgames you have to get that extra advantage with the quarterback either being blocker in the option game and the or in the zone read game or or you. Just you just think you're going to get beat up. I just think you're going to get beat. Wisconsin's defense is better than it's been than it was last year last year. It was a sieve have so I just it's amazing what we're looking at with these two teams so for who you got this. I kinda WanNa see what Michigan does and that I first quarter because the one thing we can we can guarantee in this game. Jonathon Taylor is going to get the ball a lot right. That's the most consistent thing but Michigan's defense done a really good job against Taylor. When you look at what has numbers are against Big Ten teams. I still go Wisconsin because I trust one guy and that is Jonathan Taylor on the field offensively. I know what I'M GONNA get. I have no idea what we're going to get from Michigan. I don't know if that that buys. GonNa give us the opportunity a little bit more Dylan McCaffrey. I had no I know feel for machine and it sounds like you have the same thing you have no feel for what Michigan's offensively now and I would play McCaffrey more I would would in other. Would you shays athleticism. I would just find a way to I also don't think Michigan is what they were defensively in the last couple of years yeah. I don't think there are strong as they've been and I think this offense with Wisconsin. It's done a much better job early in the season not just pounding Jonathan Taylor straight ahead. They've used them in the screen game. They use them in the past game more than they had in the past and I think that's just another way to get that phenomenal freak show in space. That's going to equal good things Wisconsin and I it just it's amazing. It's amazing to see what Jim Harbaugh's offense has become when it used to be a guy that we consider a cut cut above almost everybody in his professional offensively early. We used to think that and now they can't manufacture anything right. That's what Michigan Desperately Spratly needed when they brought him in it was hey no matter what we know what we're GONNA get. We have an identity now back with this program. That's all the way back to bow right right and now this season the way started. I have no idea what Michigan's identity is on offense and and it's it's it's to me. It's kind of ridiculous Nicholas that we're at this point right now in the horrible tenure at Michigan that we have no concept of what the identity of the program is moving forward. The only identity we have is when it comes to games against ranked teams horrible teams. Don't show up and the change. That's the change this weekend so I think you would I on the same page. We're both picking Wisconsin. We're both picking Utah so far out the gate now really good sneaky good and when I say sneaky because I I think most of the attention is on Michigan Wisconsin at noon and then the the nightcap the Georgia Notre Dame game. We'll be back in a minute with politics preview you auburn and Texan but first a word from allstate because mayhem on Saturdays in the fall is inevitable. Mayhem happens on the field sold off the field and in the polls mayhem lives on the wind in the rain on the foot of an Aaron kick and during a trap game. You'll find mayhem in the parking lot during tailgates charcoal. That's not totally out an arid football through a window a flat tire a loss side view mirror etc etc you get the point allstate protects you for mayhem in the parking lot and outside it at home and away. You can't stop mayhem from happening but you can get better protected from it with all state. The potential for May have during the playoff race is rampant underdogs trap games James in.

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.

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.

War recently was nominated for best foreign language picture and loss to Leviathan Roma and until Leviathan. That was another previous nominee not the other leviathan which was in ethnic graphic film. But that's another other story and this is I still. I'm at the point where I never trust myself. I want to say either but I think it's it's Dan. I was corrected on it so I was just comfortable with IDA. Yeah Rose House. I think it's either by no not to trust myself so I say I'd anyway eat so. He won the Oscar for that won best foreign. Yeah Yeah but then this was. This was up against Roma which which one instead did not grow all being get into and then he was but he was also for best director there this year that was a that is he snuck in before.

We're getting past present. Mixed are Casado's presented. The Cold War is similar to eat. mid-century Polish story Not so much a a road journey but about living under authoritarian regime and still having freedom within that and wine to stay true to your route somewhere you are and try and and change things or just getting out music supposed to be great music great. It's also black and white like an really really sumptuous asleep shot sumptuous about a film once and then somebody came out of those that was not sumptuous. Sorry was that the feast just a snack. Fourteen and now that's very sumptuous it was the definition of sumptuous Speaking of deaths of kings were showing national theatre lives the tragedy of King Richard. The second MHM this is Simon Russell Bills Performances Richards of second of getting a lot of acclaim has a more modern twist twist I believe From stills is it actually came in t shirt because we haven't seen clips again we haven't read reviews and people say it's great and it's National Theatre live so we do. We have to wait until no. It's not truly alive broadcast. We don't typically get advance video on this stuff unfortunately not fingle film. That weekend is Mu Lan on Yup from one thousand nine hundred ninety eight Milan. Milan can drink. Now we'll acting say Kevin were you Were you a Milan fan. It was a little too old. It'd be a little to thirteen or something. I think.

I saw I saw him but I was more lion king. Everyone Kinda China got off the train after Lion King. I think I was like Aladdin Lion King. Yeah yeah they sort of shot the moon than Lion King and then everything just seems. It's less afternoon because just in terms of grunge you'll but Moulin has a fierce following particularly millennium like people that didn't didn't you know not like they're they're too young for it became a thing with Rick and morty because of the cause of the tie in with McDonald's elsewhere the session sauce yeah that that that became that people were sort of seeking out bizarrely an obsessively which they I think they ultimately brought back. I think McDonalds. Yeah well just because of it became because he can't became this thing through the rick. Good morning but anyway. That's we don't we will not have session. Says we will have hot popcorn. We'll have cold soda. Corn we'd have have to check with Sean O'Brien to see whether that's remember this thing from McDonald's called the MIC lobster sandwich They sell them there. If you go east coast there. I couldn't even imagine ed in that. They don't call it a MIC lobster. They call it a lobster lobster roll. But it's actually. My mother-in-law tells me it's actually pretty decent lobster all so how do they do. They have MC ribs is like is it their rib. No I think I mean make ribs pop up. I think mick ribs now because because they have their own like Internet following the sorrow thing but Why we're lobster lobster were in connection with Milano? Some MM dumb list. I saw that Knows the Szechuan of the whole session wants sauce. McDonald's list of discontinued or like in and out kind of et McDonald's items good one so probably as a national product the lob the MIC lobster. No they do I think in the summer. It's you can get it at at New England McDonald's if you want uncle old gracie whenever she was so grimace. She is the it wasn't he say he wasn't he Hasn't he been put out to pasture all he's the one for shamrock shakes shamrocks. Yeah but it seems like a good fit for the McLaughlin in Boston corridor. Yep Anyway that's so but but yeah we'll see if that's That's that'd be curious if it's it's one that younger kids are now watching as a result of like you know Internet interest or whatever has it. Has It really come back. Well we'll be able to tell you come. May Okay in a of thematic programming that afternoon Sunday before team that three. PM We are showing have been. Most Habemus is famous. Latin is shockingly bad offer Catholic school by. This is a film about women in Switzerland. But I think think it's A. It's the Germanic part of Switzerland and they make a privilege. It's a pilgrimage. Yes rush at to the to the Vatican in order to advocate for women having a more pronounced role within the Catholic like Church and the director. Sylvan Maximilian Hall will be in from Switzerland to discuss the process by which he and his crew filmed the pilgrimage and winnowed it down to a feature documentary. Great Okay Then the week kicks off on Tuesday April sixteenth with Mamma. Roma John Dieleman wasn't enough. They actually never I mean for all my love of like Post War Italian film This is I've actually never seen it. It's always always been on my list but I think it'll be great. Yeah of Dr Alberto Pinto Fantastic. Who will be on hand to discuss the film Tom and frame it out for us and for those you don't know this is earlier Pasolini? I wonder what his mid point would actually be. Because has he ended in. What seventy four that early San when he dies killed by is similar substrate gentleman A middle aged mom has to make ends meet in order to to provide and go through what she has to endure in order for that to happen. And this was and there was a big Pasolini. Retrospective freight recently so this might be possibly a new print. Possibly I think we have a thirty five millimeter. Coming cool. Nice are are hitchcock film. That week is the thirty nine steps another from his black and white years and this would this is in his his time in England actually filming and making movies interesting. Because it's you know in because I know you've done this more thematically with the hitchcock series but you used to seeing being that so early on and when you do hitchcock retrospectives well. They tend to be chronologically. Yup and we did. We did little modules in this last when his spies in spycraft hence notorious and thirty-nine steps and one that you'll hear about two K.. And then before before Easter break as is tradition on holy Thursday our tradition Yup two times I was saying it was our tradition last. You'RE UH-HUH WE'LL BE SHOWING JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR The Andrew Lloyd Webber Musical About The Passion of Christ that was actually my tradition growing up was to watch this really like on holy Thursday. Good Friday no way. That's what we did in religion class in Catholic school. I think we watched it put it on TV. Hey you can watch. This came from my mom. She was big into that one. We watched I mentioned this last time during when when the tradition was first established. We were big into Jesus of Nazareth which is long to you have to have two nights of it but you know then was that a mini series. Yeah Yeah Franco Zeffirelli about this This has been in my head. Because I've been teaching a class on Ken Loach and I watched his. This film looks and smiles this week which is from like nineteen eighty-one but the kid. There's a you know it's about kind of working class kids ads in in England. I forget where they are as Ken. Loach's want to study but the kids walking through a building. He's he's whistling. Jesus Christ superstar because in and you just makes me think of the fact that in the seventies probably in England that that soundtrack was omnipresent. Everybody knew it in effect particularly the you know the the title song was just something everybody knew. Everybody had experienced o Rama and the city. They're playing that in the background. That's right that's right. There's the great the great party scene where they're playing it when we saw east coast superstar last May at the lyric opera in Chicago. We it draws just Chicago. Listen to in. The car went inside at the lyric then went to a bar and put it on a jukebox. Yeah and then job homeless thing. You really can't Odiaun and driving back after my voice was all scraggly. It was the best. I've ever sounded amazing. Everybody you know last year we were up against the John Legend right before right right right. Yeah so it's definitely. NPR One more table saw at the Browning Senate watched it on television. The other thing that the Roma thing to though is the they're they're so Rome is set in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy right someone must be seventy Yo- yeah then they're Broadway our early adopter or London or the London cast or yeah because this is before the movie right well and it. I mean it started as a studio album right which they got the money to undo the stage show but I think it seventies when now I I can't back that up but that's not let us down with AH accuracy of time period. But I'm wondering that must be what the what they're listening to at that point in the film check it out in Roma and then check it out. Check that got US Chrysler Star here then. We go on Easter break. and southbound celebrates Dingus Day on Monday April. Twenty passionate thing stay here in town got local election. Yup got big mayor's election. Somebody's GonNa take over for the rising star Mayor Pete So dingus day. If after severance like Oh what do you do with the day after day you come and Watch a Congolese documentary uh-huh But we're showing Mukalla to the film as I said out of Central Africa and another film that has a lot of deep labor ties. Profiles a pattern Familias who who looks to provide for his family by.

"Only stuff folks and he says you know yes. It's twenty bucks or we go van or whatever and she says she's like Twenty Bucks What do you think I am the late Howard Hughes or something? Wow maybe the seventies that could be a timely reference. It's just it's mainly the late hour so there's one giving really plucky. The dialogue to actors are like that changes me come off real real sharp and so I did a little skimming of the reading Before we for our podcast on on on the studio in one of the things that came up was there's some is is there a movie called the van or something about Van Yeah and there's which is which is described as being part of the since you mentioned the van in this movie part of the vans play tation right. That was out thing. Well then culture was a big thing. I I get that. I can remember that. I can remember the think van you were. Or if if you knew. Somebody carpeted van. We had a carpeted van. Did you really the blue by. It's very impractical. I haven't van because you have a big family and you gotta drive around. But no you read van in the seventies because you are you know it was it was an RV. You're taking it to park and like have fun. Yeah so that makes it again. If you're thinking of genre blending you get a little bit of cars some racing than you probably. They get drug culture sex culture tied with van so got it good job crown is it. Were they known as Crown Crown Crown Internet Janney. I always thought Ah I read him as crown international probably just called Crown Total blind spot for me. I just don't they never knew them. So good good to know. I'm going to explore the spend my holidays exploring the vans plantation genre But in the meantime I will. I will tell you about one more notable person who passed away in that would be the Dutch cinematographer Robby Muller WHO This gives me this including him? maybe gives me awesome. In decried I guess because he kind of worked on the coolest movies like the seventies and the eighties actually into the ninety s because because he's best known for our best or most closely associated for his long standing relationship with Vin vendors. We've talked about a lot because he was here and works with him throughout his career But really I think in in his most interesting way in the nineteen seventies. Probably if you know films like Allison the cities in the American friend or some of the best vendors work and then kind of culminates with Paris Texas in Nineteen eighty-four. Interestingly he didn't did not shoot Wings of desire. Which is the film that most people at least in in the wake of the recent vendors visit is the film that people feel more strongly about In his career. It's not the one that I feel strongly about. But that's matter of opinion But he But he also worked. If you know not not surprising zing went on to work with Jim Jarmusch in the eighties down by law and mystery train and then it goes. They're two very different. Looks too. Yeah yeah that's well it's I mean it's funny because you know he didn't work on Stranger Than Paradise and I always see. Stranger Than Paradise and down by law is very similar in terms of in in terms of their look and feel and then yeah. It's it's a mystery train is where it starts to. He starts to go in a different direction but then he also worked on dead man which snow is kind of maybe taking back to that but It's it's it's interesting just seeing you know. Kind of how he evolved but the part that at the at the part that overlooked in actually didn't pick up on when you know because when he passed away a lot of people were talking about him but specifically in the vein of the vendors would completely overlooked elect was his work with Lars von Trier. And it's the the venture films that are his best films. I would say like breaking the waves dancer in the dark You know he's he's you know the there's I mean there's a and that's a very different approach from what right in those earlier films so it's interesting that you know what he was known for. I think in terms of compositional only with vendors films which was this Really Great Looking Black and white cinematography. He's able to kind of translate that into into into volunteers. You know more hand held video. Although I guess they're always you know. I think that the great things about the early vendors films is that feeling of mobility in in his in his early works that the the camera is much more free flowing Then we see later on But he's I mean just you know if you look through his. If if you need a student came to me and said what should what movies should I watch over Christmas break. And she was looking and asking for suggestions you know. Go Look Robby. Muller's filmography because he rarely he worked on a bad film. It's his his look. I didn't realize he Shot Barfly Yeah. That's another one wins. Non Onto core. That's I mean I haven't gone back to that film since the eighties but you know Yeah it's it's it's a deep. I mean he was he was he worked on a lot. So oh look them up folks If you need some movies to watch so But we will. We are sad that you're gone Robbie as well as our other honorees. He's this year on the End of year top three From the from the Browning cinema and establishing shot Anybody anybody else. We Wanna I just shout out to the passed away that maybe didn't make our list or Charlotte. Rae Charlotte was reading up on her Yeah she was. Her career is pretty Interesting and obviously people get into the facts of life but she has plenty of work around that and Yeah so she I went down a bit of Arapahoe her her and she facts of life episode and being very impressed Arafat Post when they're in the store or when they have the store okay which was the best. That was the shark joke I think with that show. But that's that's what I know when they go to Miami. Thank it's real tough But yeah I like the that's where I came into it and so that's the air like I remember the premier premier. I remember like because I think it was because it was touted as a spin off of Different strokes right is she was she misses Garrett worked for The Drummond's right. The drums was at the family from different strokes. Sounds may yeah it is Drummond. It's a I know it's a spin off because it's one of those you know. Oh the spin offs better than you know the original. Yeah that's true top maybe next year Send US your suggestions. I don't know how how you will but if you want to just look up on the on the INTERWEB and Email us if you have ideas for top threes. We're always open suggestions. We're looking forward to a great year next year. We'll bring back some more guests. We.
"shot" Discussed on Establishing Shot
"Hello Welcome to another edition of establishing shots we are joining me as always my astute colleague another another recording session it's December I have a cold Oh campus everyone everyone's under the weather so but not thought since it's the end of the year we would take a look at top three the idea being that when you get to the end of the year you if you're like us you watch amount of silence that comes along with actually it's not really silent but when blow everybody likes get get a lot of applause right so like if Meryl Streep Dies People Are Gonna a little support to the folks who maybe some of the folks who get that kind of polite applause works of that makes sense so three so we each pick three people who passed away this year somewhat just give that avengers gave us plenty that's true we work with is not one of our three that we picked he's not because he's going against them but he'll get he'll get the big it sounds like it sounds like he's I think he pre filmed some new fitting farewell Ricky who is first on your list of people Schroeder still around still creating a heart is an actor who people in which he plays kind of direct I was surprised to see all of the early films which I used to really know Asian prisoner Spanish prison yeah dislike there I have moments image prisoner as one that they they know now they give like a middling kind house of games came up big I can remember like in their best films of the eighties Anisa movies he's boogie nights the narration that Starts Magnolia he's he's a historian a scholar so he would do talk shows and do card tricks he's or the foams Ovo Commie as zooey as he's doing sleight I don't know I don't know magic that well but he had really uh and I think that's always Kinda the litmus test for those subcultures in it's alive I think even remember actually filling audience and maybe a third of them aren't in new and some of the people can hear individual you know when there's a Saturday night live skit and it's kind of tanking wow this holds up it's a lot of fun yeah so they ran a documentary about him a couple years ago mostly drawn on his career in magic as opposed to album I was just kind of appears three years for years right and you kind of forget things if he he didn't he didn't really reveal a lot in terms of his own biography yeah yeah and he made it professional about magic and I think that's part political great so first on my list I picked an Italian just not near vast go a little deeper Olney who passed away I think he was ninety one when he died this year a an expansive portrait of Country Lives that film won the palm door at the CON Film Festival the film will post Oh translated as the job which is kind of about his which when people talk about Italian film history usually kind of the first point of entry for Italy but also what it did for international cinemas and he was really turned projects but Alpo stowe is an interesting film because it marks marks ah their view of life because it's about people being in poverty during the war kind of content because Italy's in a different place when he's making it in I think it's nineteen sixty him as a or the character who kind of stand in for me as a all right so but you know you you kind of it brings a lot of humor a young woman who's in the film most of the most of the actors in the film were not actors and other you know he kind of stays in that vein through the early sixties then in the late sixties as a filmmaker his later films are kind of harder and often his faith comes into play very strongly within his work a group of African refugees that take shelter in a church and Michelle ooh yeah and just rough but forget is Michael or within the church because the church is actually getting condemned I guess filmmakers who were part of his generation nor was he he was seen as kind Obviously as you and a quarter I don't think he has a lot of apologised right like bring here and I always tried to rally support around him and it's like he's a he's a filming of people like yeah they respect powerful work so yeah he doesn't I think because nobody really knows what to do with them because you know if you're GONNA do Italian after brunch screenings because he kinda puts me to sleep yeah now this lenient those that I know this is from like fifteen the seventy s I mean if you if you are if you're trying to if you're trying to get into his work what's up what's up next year I also have the filmmaker from star as a cinematographer I didn't realize this but he worked on Lawrence of we're big but not like those are those are interesting lead leads in to trek AIDS he comes out of the box with performance repeats and a lot of his work really jagged editing and missing that kind of creates a mosaic and then in the last and you get so if that is his approach to cinema homes or thrillers or who donuts which I guess performance this breath the Jim Jarmusch because people extras yeah but it's big jagger playing himself essentially a moment and it's it's a really weird British artists of the seventies musicians with the man who and it's kind of a bummer that I think with performance yeah so he doesn't quite get the credit but that and that is something that a lot of people kind films in as an Undergrad was it was in film school but took film classes you know that would have been more Kamar he doesn't really have a really commercial turn at any point it this came out while I was seeing his films for the first time and I thought maybe I should give that shot out in like three different even talk about walkabout yeah yeah but it was like suddenly for making an I I guess the way I always kind of lump them together with Ken talked about that they you know that has it's very disruptive editing process flowing through the work that doesn't you know it's the the images aren't there's no not exactly super clean but his stuff is always much messier a film that is pretty powerful in terms of its turns like early nineties crowd was really into it yeah it will get referenced all the time incited but but that's the thing films that are I guess when I start to make the link with Ken Russell Yeah they're Moody Yeah exactly maybe that's where the goofiness comes from and we Fridays at post PG thirteen yeah yeah yeah because every narrative look at Santa commonly cited as something mummy and thunder cats or Yeah David exactly not not Bruce Banner David Banner away is the data's David banner the uh-huh Okay Anyway but yeah that's that was quite a transformation gotcha yeah I'm sure that all the crying towel middle scores how do you think so we had some a little bit of everything they showed up don one film but I included Neil Simon I also I think part of the reason why I wanted to recognize Neil Simon is that Neil Simon was just so omnipresent and you know very successful playwright screenwriter absolutely cannot stand for example what's my what's first on my list was that was that was not a secret I mean that was well known at the time earliest discounted omnipresence but also as like the first films that I would see that movie I related more to adults because of the you know the snap the snappy I live which is barefoot in the park is a fairly straightforward pretty simple in terms pretty common storyline for right exactly just kinda drawn to the city more in terms of film representation but the film that's the important from nineteen seventy-three starring the One and only Charles Grodin which as a Neil Simon movie in terms of the screenplay it's improvisation it certainly seems that way in aspects of Gruden's performance well regional material yeah it's a little bit different it's not as punchy and it's not as it doesn't seem like a play it opened it up more and set it for in keeping with how she would approach it before before he said Oh she's she's she's getting up there that save that for another or maybe another podcast guests emulate the success of something like because the goodbye girl was a huge hit so the films mom to take me to these movies when I was like nine or ten years old a there was I remember so there was routinely lost in yonkers on the prey the volt oh so you're are you talking about the film or the I'm talking about North Iowa my thing this isn't funny I is my first like before even lost in yonkers stuff and parody parodies that's the premise of murder by death is it's a and so so that was expected expected broader they weren't they weren't sequel is in different parts of New York exactly different parts of the upper we're on my third you're on your third okay what is that so my third studio that wanted to talk about but he passed away This year Ricky Jay with you I might steal that even though I don't date of birth you're right you're confirmation I heard it was just a list of people who could come to my funeral or and anyway so maybe I'll add that now my into which is very similar to like AIP and other is into the exploitation era of the seventies and eighties they start in and they make things like bloodlust which is a knockoff of which is a Marty Robbins movie he's he's an interesting he was a nascar driver and this is a movie that capitalize if there's all these these genre films which are always whore agents from the kind of the Horn Schlock and Grind House blind spot for me but but I was looking up to see what films they produced when these my tutor and my show for my words right and his storyline that that comes up through ornament really dirty so actually there's our AP Jerry Van Dyke you almost top honorable here are a lot of men are around her now unlike are coming to the theater not to meet other people just by themselves backwards because you know I like this movie a whole lot which is why nine and if you think of exploitation films mom is pretty great because passes away and she's in high school and has a very tough time with the WHO are and she starts to in order to get as and this iron blown sex worker which is kind of the next movement in it and it just it takes a real ramp up yeah especially starting it kind of a tough like home life thing to point where she's just killing mobster and she asks Do you have you got any stuff on you only stuff folks twenty bucks what do you think I am the late Howard Hughes or something so there's one giving really plucky and it's a good scene folks so I did a little skimming of the reading before refer grabbed as being part of the since you mentioned a van in this movie part of the vans play tation genre think van you were or if if you knew somebody carpeted van Oh yeah we ed van in the seventies because you were you know it was it was an Rv you were taking they get drug culture sex culture tied with van so got it good job for me I just don't they never knew them so good good to know I'm going to explore the that would be the Dutch cinematographer Robby Muller like the seventies and the eighties actually into the nineties because and works with him throughout his career work and then kind of culminates with Paris Texas in Nineteen eighty-four interestingly he in his career it's not the one that I feel strongly about but that's matter of opinion I'm very different looks too yeah yeah that's well in terms of their look and.
"shot" Discussed on Establishing Shot
"And it's about a group of African refugees that that take shelter in a church in Michelle will care smacky foam. Yeah but not. Nobody has none of the charismatic eighty humor or absurdity. It's it's actually very kind of heavy handed. ooh Yeah just rough But it's Michael or Michelle. Lonsdale the famous French actor. He plays a priest. Who has to decide whether whether rat them out and get them deported or let them stay within the church because the church is actually getting condemned? I guess but Yeah but that. That kind of He he was someone who is really out of place because he didn't fit in with more of the leftist Filmmakers filmmakers who were part of his generation nor was he He was seen as kind of to progressive for the more conservative Catholic contingent so falls in interest middle ground. Yeah I don't think he has Obviously as you and a quarter I don't think he has a lot of apologised right like mm-hmm does he. I don't see him on being discussed as much as you might think. No I mean I. He was so it's funny because he was someone who I always wanted to bring here and I always tried to rally support around him and it's like he's a he's a filming of people like yeah they respect but they don't they don't love. I love those early films so much that. That's that's that's enough for me intrigued. Wooden clogs is is. I mean. It's a masterpiece. I mean it's a really powerful work So yeah he doesn't I think because it's it's kind of an intermittent career he doesn't he doesn't really. You also doesn't really fit into film classes in a way so when I talked to other faculty about nobody really knows what to do with them. Because you know if you're GONNA do Italian film usually you go with the neorealist as opposed to the filmmakers in that period period of recovery. I'm he's someone I gotTa Watch my After you brunch screenings because he kinda puts me to sleep yeah. It's the early ones are pretty quick. They're really not the later stuff was the one about the Meta cheese. Oh well that's A. That's a row Cellini from the age of the now this lenient those that no this is from fifteen years ago. Okay so I just saw wolf this. Yeah yeah that's I mean I think it's you reach a stopping point with. I mean I think you can't really go past the seventy s if you are if you're trying to if you're trying to get into his work stick with the sixties and seventies and if you haven't seen won the award clogs is that's a that's a that's very entry point right. Yep I'd say so what's up what's up next I also have the filmmaker from the seventies who is working in the season and things like that and that would be Nicholas Roque will who Got Star as a cemetery offer I didn't realize this. But he worked on Lawrence of Arabia and doctors vago and some of the lean films which are very well known for their look and feel they. We're big but not like we know for any he worked on your foes Fahrenheit four fifty one okay So those are those are interesting leading. Leads in to see where his career way And so after after a kind of a journeyman approach to becoming a director he was in the industry for a couple of arcades. He comes out of the box. With performance starring Mick Jagger and that film AH comes to be I mean. The style of that Is something that repeats and a lot of his work really jagged. Editing and and timelines are not chronological kind of mosaic. I was reading up on him and so many have missing that kind of creates a mosaic. And then in the last and you get the last piece and that everything comes into focus right which makes sense with performance and also don't look now right so if that is his approach to cinema That you kind of have everything. Why not and then at the end you say today I would like the last shot or whatnot? It makes sense. They would find his way to suspense films. uh-huh thrillers or who donuts which I guess performance kind of that too. Yeah so so performance rose. You don't know it's a Reclusive we're talking about it actually with the Jim Jarmusch. That's right because people hanging out and he's like Rockstar rockstars like with a lot of curtains and fabrics extras yeah. But as Mick Jagger playing himself essentially as a reclusive rockstar and it gets you you The drugs and insularity of the moment and It's it's a really Likud performance that he was able to conjure Jagger who was obviously a performance on right and then he continues working with artists weird British artists of the seventies musicians with The man who founded on Earth would you be a fun movie to go back and screen here. I think we did show it actually went bowie. Died right pretty good turnout for yeah And it's kind of a bummer. That I think with performance. It's a Lotta people. Don't think of that as they think of. As Mick Jagger's movie with the man who fell earth they think of it as always movie and we don't look now think of his own soon. Yeah so he doesn't quite get the credit but that Same thing Very Interesting I. The way it's edited is Keeping you on your toes It's very uncomfortable and That is something that a lot of people kind of lift from him and mop up and take during the the late seventies under their films. I'm thinking about you know. My discovery of his work happened in In films films in as an Undergrad wasn't didn't it was in film school but took film classes as an Undergrad. And I don't know that I had seen any of his films before that because 'cause I'm thinking there's nothing from the eighties at that point that would have had You know that would have been more Kamar. He doesn't really have a really commercial turn at any point it. It seems like his his in nineteen ninety the witches the way. This is a little bit before that because I mean just in terms of when I'm discovering that I remember the witches. This came out while I was seeing his films for the first time and I thought maybe I should give that shot but it was like this sudden onslaught when right around nineteen ninety when I was when I was an Undergrad where I saw. Don't look now performance and walkabout in like three different even talk about walkabout. Yeah yeah but it was like suddenly suddenly just this I'm thinking it was interesting because a lot of like hippy. Professors who were kind of deep into you know The way his his approach to for making an I I guess the way. I always kind of lump them together with Ken Russell and with early Peter. We're films even though they're very different in their approach. But there's just something about the aesthetic. Maybe it's the editing which you talked about that. They you know they'd has. It's very disruptive editing process for some reason. I WANNA call them gooey films but not gooey in the sense of sentimental but like there's just cast well there's just there's just a lot of stuff kind flowing through the work that doesn't you know it's the images. Aren't there's no clean compositions. It's always like you know. Like you said the tapestries in the fabrics rex. which is interesting given that? He's doing things like Lawrence of Arabia and cutting not exactly super clean but his stuff is always much masson. Germany seems like von Sternberg or something but he Yeah that that's kind of what I don't like now is is that's A. That's a film not to be spoiled but a film that is pretty powerful in terms of its turns. Yeah I wonder if that had a rerelease in the early nineties because it's a couple of different points. I feel like that Jax like early. Nineties crowd was really into it. Yeah it will get referenced all the time name and stuff I was reading and certainly yeah the well the the girl in the yellow ring coat that comes up that image gets used incited. But but that's the thing you know films that are I. Guess when I start to make the link with Ken Russell who is much less interesting as a director. It's it's the it's the focus on visual -ality I would say as opposed to like deep storytelling or character melt. They're moody. Yeah exactly. Maybe that's where the goofiness comes from. And we we are showing the witches this semester. Cool as part of as part of Professor Finkle funders bus Sunday family films. Thank you professor comes in at a P G. I was Kinda surprised. Fridays at post. PG thirteen yeah. Yeah Yeah it's because it's it's scary is scary because it has body transformation and and that's what really messes up kids. You have a body transformation that that's in like every narrative I mean look at Santa commonly cited as something scare because object. Permanence is something that you can bank on and when you have things like the incredible hulk or the mummy mummy in thunder cats or go into that personal while but it's a montage by the the way the incredible hulk transformation how he goes from from David Hammer yet David that yeah exactly. Not Not Bruce Banner. David Banner is the data's David Banner and the A TV show up in the vengeance. Bruce Banner I think was the I don't know I think it's I think in the comic books he was always Bruce Banner and just for the TV show. They Call Them David Ferguson. Okay anyway But yeah that's that was quite a transformation from David banner to the Hulk So so So yeah I think we'll see how kids responding to the witches of a crying towel although middle scores show Saying like Oh we're here for the Nicholas roeg memorial screening. Just show up crazy rich Asians. We didn't we didn't pull the crowd. How do you think so? We had some a little bit of everything. They showed up their own way So who do you have as number two. I'm realize analysts. Okay so number two and this is what. I'm kind of second guessing as I did it. Because it's largely based on one film but I included Neil Simon and as someone to recognize who died died at age ninety something this year. I early nineties. I think he was So Neil Simon I also I think part of the reason why I wanted to recognize. Neil Simon is that Neil Simon was just so omnipresent in the seventy S. When I was a kid and I just think about like when you thought about about the mood going to the movies there was always a Neil Simon movie that was out in and around very successful playwright? Screenwriter ooh prolific. Yeah I mean just yeah exactly always. They're always was something in some of which were very successful in some of the more successful ones of the films that I absolutely cannot stand for example. What's my what's first on my list of the Neil Simon movies that I can't stand? That would be the goodbye girl right. Marsha Mason yes. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah that was that was. That was not a secret. I mean that was well known. At the time you mean they'd go to the Oscars together issues to get Oscar nominations but But yeah when you go back to..
