Steven Soderbergh's 'No Sudden Move' to Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival
"There's a new steven soderbergh movie coming out. Oh really just assumed. There's one every month now. Accurate that is fair but i reference of course there in the question out of sight still my favorite steven soderbergh movie. And there's a reason for it. Soderbergh himself said when asked about making this movie. No sudden move which is a heist movie. The last time. I shot a movie in detroit with a great script and a great cast. Things worked out. Pretty well yeah. He made a masterpiece. This one though. Unlike out of sight is a period piece it said back in nineteen fifty five and is about a group of small time criminals who are hired to steal the documents. Seems like it's simple josh. I don't know if you've heard this before it's a heist that seems like it'll be simple And then something goes off if you want to make a move proposition for you. It's never your fault. is it offensive. Do you think i was skiing. I'm sure there's going to be some interesting socio political elements to the movie being set in detroit in the mid fifty s. A time where you know. Some of the big auto plants are starting to close. You've got this growing class and racial divide. So it's gonna be a grittier piece. It is going to be more akin to something like out of sight. Or even maybe kind of the limy versus the breezy flash of something like ocean's eleven but the cast just like with ocean's eleven is also a big big reason to see this movie and i guess clooney jack fully himself danny ocean himself was originally set to star and had to back out due to the pandemic but listen to this cast even without clooney. Don cheadle benicio del toro. Amy siamese jon hamm david harbour ray liotta karen culkin julia fox brendon. Frazier bill duke. And supposedly matt
Oscars Producers Promise A "Safe," "Intimate" Ceremony
"Wanted to know the inner workings of how the oscars work but especially this year. So now that you've spoken to the producers two of them. Do you have a better sense of what we're gonna see. Yeah no i think. I'm as fascinated as you are to watch what this show is going to look like. Certainly the three words day stress when we talked safety intimacy and community. This is a this is a brave leap forward. Steven soderbergh says it literally is like flying a plane while you're building it. But they are confident that they can create a safe intimate environment. In which Presenters whom they referring to his cast nominees in there plus ones period will gather together for an intimate show in side In a very safe environment and a show that will celebrate those nominees. The life stories of the people who make the movies and will celebrate the idea of a community and for all of us. An optimistic look about are coming together. Once again in person to celebrate something so there's a lot on the line it's not just a show. It is really an attempt to say we can do this and do it safely. And i think we're all fascinated to see how it's all going to happen
Viola Davis, One of the Greatest Actors of Our Time
"Welcome alex i. It's great to have you here to talk about viola. I'm so excited to hear your picks but first a little bit of background viola. When she won her first oscar for best supporting actress for fences and twenty seventeen. She became the first black person to win the so so-called triple crown of acting a competitive advantage emmy and tony award because of this in how omnipresent she's been over the last decade including her turn in the blockbuster period piece the help and as the shady complicated lawyer least keating in the long running series how to get away with murder. It might be easy to forget that. She has more than paid her dues to get where she's at. Now she graduated from juilliard in nineteen ninety-three and bounce between theater and screen throughout the rest of that decade by the early offs. She'd become a reliable supporting actor. Popping up in steven soderbergh movies like solaris and playing rations on the mom rule or the urban professional. She spoken candidly about how being dark skinned. Black woman has impacted her career like in this interview. She did with tina brown in twenty eighteen. I have a career that's probably comparable to meryl streep julianne moore. Let's sigourney weaver. They all came out of jail. They came out of juilliard. They came on nyu. They had the same path as me and yet i am nowhere near them. Not as far as money not as far as job opportunities. Nowhere close to
How The Pandemic Is Affecting Movie Theater And Streaming
"The globalist on monocle. Twenty four. I'm carlotta rubella still with me. Articles fernando pacheco and a phone critic. Karen krizanovic karen. This year has ended with his big deal between water. Brothers and hbo. Max what do you think about where the industry is headed in two thousand and twenty one. I know a lot of people are not happy with the deal but in a way it kind of pilots that we will never return to twenty nineteen and how things used to be as kind of we need to adopt moving forward well. The film industry is graded at. It's been adapting for one hundred ten hundred twenty five years so this isn't new but this was a great shock because everybody was looking forward to these seventeen titles at warner brothers had and the fact that they dated them basically which means they're released at the same time they're in on the cinema and they said it's only for this year was a huge shock to the people that made the movies and also the filmmakers the directors but also the crew and the agents were saying we weren't consulted legendary wasn't consulted. Christopher nolan wasn't consulted to develop nerve wasn't consulted in. These are big movies also in the heights. I mean that's been waiting around and they're doing this to try and shore up an ailing streaming service or a streamers of his alien didn't get launched properly. It's very very difficult. Film industry is not a place where you can easy money. Streaming is very important. Keep the production of cinema going say semi mean movies. And that's really what it was about. It was an. At and t. decision. So how is this changing things. This is showing us that there are two ways of seeing movies. You either have an event a big cinema event or you stream it. And it's going to be a bit of a competition because in canada. Where warner brothers is releasing these films. They're not releasing them online. So it's gonna be interesting sailed. It divides the point of this. Is that cinema will not go away. Because as steven soderbergh said recent interview the beast you cannot get the numbers you can't get the amount of money streaming that you can with a cinematic release combined with streaming and streaming a lot of great. Things are people. A lot of people are seeing movies they would have never seen before. So that's brilliant but it is a big change in how revenues are earned and also. I think there's going to be a real class warfare or your movie was just streamed or my movie went into the cinema and there has always been that distinction. Do you think this will push other streaming services to try to reach similar deals depending on how the deal works. I think that. Hbo max they were saying. This is only for a year. And we're we're releasing for months and then it's going back to the cinema. I think we're gonna see how it plays out because really netflix has not been releasing the information the data that we should be seeing from ordinary releases. And that's with though show you the good stuff. Hey look we made money here. But they're not showing us where they're losing money and for me at something. Karen was very rare to me. Steven soderbergh said that films are released in the cinema because of the money as well. If you look at the blockbusters they you know. They're very profitable billion dollars. Of course they're also very expensive to make. I think it's very hard to get the same amount of money. In streaming. I think disney when they released moulana zero first of all. They charged quite a lot thing almost thirty dollars. You know for the first days. But i doubt it. The it's the same amount of number even malone had a proper a cinema release so we have two very very careful those numbers. I'm sure the industry knows about what you think about trolls trolls. I think made thirty five million and that was just streaming. Which i suppose is pretty good also thirty quid. If you've got three kids ten kids go over and over and over there you know. There is that but to see a movie. Still say no matter. How movies made or what it's like. It's still going to be better on the big screen. It's difficult to make it an experience for in your in the comfort of your home as it doesn't matter which type of equipment you have in. How great he tried to make the experience of going to the movies only happens when you step out of your front door carreno. I want to pick up on a point. You just mentioned there about the possibility that deals like this will open this class. Warfare between the movies are just streamed and movies. That actually had two cinemas. Because we've already been discussing that for a while in terms of the movies that actually or even the actors and actresses and members of the crew that can be entitled to certain awards depending where they're movie is broadcasted initially will this only essentially that or actually prompt include streaming periods. I think they're having to include streaming now because for example the oscars which hope we're going to discuss are having to full. These in a lot of film festivals are having to look at different ways of qualifying their films and i think that streaming is going to be accepted because what they have been doing films. That didn't have the budget for a proper quote unquote cinematic release. Is they'd release them in a small boutique cinema just so it made the qualifications so i think that streaming is going to be accepted the problem is you. Don't really even though you can watch it again. You don't really see the performances or see the work as well as you do. When it's bigger than your house
"soderbergh" Discussed on Happy Sad Confused
"Important so we had some great conversations and and it was. it was fun to think about But we just couldn't d- built nino the last ten yards. Were were were. We just couldn't do it. Just couldn't figure it without revealing your entire. Take him just curious. What is steven soderbergh. Bond movie looks like what's the core. What's the mission statement. What's the well you will never know. I mean aspects of it have shown up elsewhere. I mean i think you know. I i would say there were. There are things in haywire that in terms of its approach to character. And and you know it's not a big movie but there's there's a little bit of activity in it That's that's a hint at the kind of attitude That i was looking for. But you know look there you. They're doing very well. I hope i hope they're able to figure out what to do. About the release of the new york. I mean They got they got they they were they really got dome selves caught in the worst possible place it was supposed to come out right as the pandemic was lifting. And and now you know you don't wanna sit on these things. It's going to be very curious. You're you're obviously doing stuff for hbo. Max there's a cascade effect where everybody else follows suit for at least the next year or not big. Yeah for a year and then and then it'll it'll it'll absolutely come back. It has to come back. There's too much there's too much money out there for it. Not come back. The trick is going to be. Can we convince. The government is part of some stimulus package to help the exhibitors Weather this over the next twelve months that they're they're going to need help So i'm i'm hoping i know there's a there's a plan in place and there is you know there are people lobbying for this in. Nato is gathering support. They really need it. Like it's a i think you know it's it's just a reality that a theatrical exhibition business that can't be at full capacity is not really viable business so we need to figure out a way to keep the theaters Alive until this comes back. But i'm absolutely convinced this old come back. There's there's just too much money on the table So it's not it's not about the romanticism of like we need the theaters. It's now it's there's only one way to make a billion dollars the well. There's i mean. Economic economic forces tend to be very very powerful and and part of their powers that they can be quantified. Now the subjective experience of going to a movie. I would argue as time goes on continues to become even more unique. Think about the number of activities. The you engage in in which. You're only doing one thing for two hours. There's no distraction. There's nothing else going on. You're staring at one thing for two hours. Sometimes more getting increasingly rare. And so. I think that experience is is solid like. I don't think it's going to go anywhere. I think people are always whether they articulated or not. They're always gonna want that. There's something really pleasurable about it and the fact that you're doing it with a lot of other people that's pleasurable too. So it's it's this is just going to be a really ugly drought. You know in the us but you know it's gonna rain rain again. It always a couple of odds and ends for you. Justin looking at at many films experiences. You've had this is not related to a film that you posted at one point not so long ago a rejection letter of sorts. You got from lucasfilm in nineteen eighty four. What was what were you. What were you asking for. What was the pitch. I just wanted. I put my shorts on a three quarter inch cassette and just wanted to see if somebody would put is on it just to just to just a curiosity. So i'm i was. I was thrilled to get that letter. You kept it clearly. Something alien was on their stationary. I thought that's that's nice This is random. But i came across this. There was a report okay. So let's go back twenty years ocean's eleven. There was a report in variety. That you're close to casting joel and ethan coen in ocean's eleven in the casey affleck and scott caan roles. Do you have any recollection of that. I don't but it doesn't sound like a terrible idea. It sounds amazing. And i'm sure george had a hand in that because he just he just went with them and it. If it didn't it didn't get shot down fairly quickly by one of us. They would have shot it down pretty quickly. I'm like a a pretty but not we're not the worst casting idea. Never heard i'll say no i. Here's here's the worst years. This was a nightmare. I had while we were shooting kafka I i always. I always have anxiety dreams. When i'm shooting But in this case. I awakened to discover her to. My surprise. didn't remember doing this. That i had cast paul hogan and that i arrived on set and and this was. It was a gradual process of dawning on me by the by what people were saying to me. As i approach the sat in a and i started to feel like something's up like the way people are looking at me and talking to me when i get to set some things going to be up in what was up. Was paul hogan ready to play that part. Infamously we editing for a decade this film. Is that what. You're doing inserting paul hogan back into this film now but i forgot about that dream until i dove back into this and remembered i had a i had a. I had a beard at the time. And i woke up in the course of one night overnight. I woke up and had a a big white patch in my beer. I was stressed. I don't know if it was that night that i had that dream but No dreams. I have when i'm shooting things things that can't be solved. The point was w sitting here. Like i can't solve. There's no way to solve this. I can't fire and here we go the answers to embrace it because that's a version of the film. Frankly i would enjoy in some way as well wouldn't have been boring the Infamous retirement a few years. Back of steven soderbergh did it. What did it do for you coming out of it. You've been pretty prolific to say the least Since the neck and getting back into features Do you find. did you. Reorient your approach to filmmaking your attitude. what what's the most important post and pre retirements difference between the way you're approaching material. I think just a very basic way. Confused the business with the job right and Allowed my frustrations with one part of it to bleed into the other part of it Which was stupid but i. I don't know that's what happened What the neck did for me was re re. Energize is My love for the job just for that job. The being being on a set doing that job With started up on the neck i thought. Oh this is what. I'm supposed to be doing I just really idyllwild myself to sort of not get disconnected but Distracted a little bit. Psychologically by my frustrations with the way. The business functions economically sometimes creatively sometimes so like one weekend of the neck. I was totally back into wanting to work as much as possible. So maybe that was just a necessary. Step for me to get there. May there probably should have been A smarter way to get there. It's not it's not fun to to walk back. Such definitive statements. And i promised to do it again. That ala company with some comments. That will guaranteed. No one will ever hire me again. You're going to go out with a abang. Just yeah. I'll do something that that really is scorched earth and and it will not even allow for the option for me to come back. I promise i feel like the fear of any artists and You know. I talked to a lot of filmmakers is diminishing returns as a career continues. We've seen a lot of great filmmakers. Where the last few films. They lost the step. Something is missing. And and that's part of. Why quentin has this. Like ten and out. He's not gonna let himself see produce anything. That's less than the utmost quality. Is that part of the reason for yourself. Your stuff is so dynamic and so interesting always it. it's experimental you're trying new formats you're trying new approaches Is that part of. The reason is to keep it fresh to to to make sure you stay.
"soderbergh" Discussed on The Big Picture
"And we were all desperate for julia roberts to have a movie in a role like that. And she got it and she nailed it and he nailed it and now i never want to rewatch erin brockovich which is no shots to it. But i do. I was desperately watchful frontal. And that's what looking at these things over time. I think can compel and that's part of what i want to be able to just name everything. So people can remember that he did all of this work right. Well i'm sorry to tell you that full-frontal is tier five and erin. Brockovich is at a higher tier. So i know you had an opportunity to make that change i. You are empowered to make those choices. And like i said i agree with almost all them. I think for the purposes of this conversation. That was just kind of interesting to think about what you want to return to you. Which is not necessarily a declaration of quality. Full-frontal doesn't work as well as a movie. It's not as fun to watch. It's just got a bunch of interesting ideas in it which is different than being a great movie. That's true and there were also a number of movies on this list. I didn't need to revisit. Because i had seen them so many times and they aren't all necessarily at the top of the list though you know a few of them are because we watch ability is part of our bringer ethos anyway tier five. I will read them with the caveat that this is this is a basic list. We are being a little obvious. Okay so no. I don't know. I just you know. I'd like to make things interesting okay. Tier five kaffa the underneath grey's anatomy bubble full-frontal aeros and the good german. I think you have nailed it. And part of the reason you nailed. It is because it's very difficult to see some of these movies and so for example a cough khou which has been out of print forever and it's just impossible to find and hopefully he'll make that movie available to people in the future might instinct when i saw this list was to make the underneath number thirty five because i think it's the clearest effort at a mainstream movie that he made that is the successful even though it has some cool stuff in it as opposed to something like bubble full-frontal which are knowingly experiments. Right right so i don't want to just completely degrade those. But then i do think it would be bubble and then eros full-frontal and the naked woman. Yeah i will say. I didn't watch the german for this podcast. But i watched it a couple years ago when we also did steven soderbergh rankings on the wringer dot com which you and i will revise because we have the power and here we are and i watch most of the government for that. I have to say it wasn't bad but it again. It didn't work. There was something about like the mismatch of not just the era but kind of the topics. And what i expect from soderbergh's energy and playfulness. It just doesn't really and the it's not my favorite clooney soderbergh performance. It's just a little flat so you wanna go thirty four. The good german. We could or. I just think i would put full-frontal above the german okay so thirty four full-frontal thirty three the good german. No no thirty four. The german thirty three four frontal. Oh i see okay. I'm among with dot com. Eros is a hard to find anthology film that features three installments one from lanka..

"And i just wanna make it and i'll probably will be able to pull it off a month and then hopefully you guys will enjoy it. What did you think of. Let them all talk. Same it is just a complete surprise. I think even though what you said describes it pretty accurately it stars meryl streep dianne wiest candice bergen. It is found on a cruise ship. And it's a lot of talking and it is about women of a certain age a facing their life and their each and each other's and that's not like a hundred percent out of character for soda bringing the sense of people talking in unusual settings and and people who aren't normally focused on in cinema or considered heroes though that's the usually with a criminal background or something and his movies but in this case it's just all ladies but it is it definitely. Has that feel that. I'd like to try it. Which is also steven. Soderbergh of white. I had this idea and wouldn't it be fun. If i could get everyone together and i could convince a cruise ship and a very fancy cruise ship at that to let me film and we'll just see what happens and more often than not when steven soderbergh like sees what happens. It does work and it's exciting. I think this really works. I think it's quieter than you would expect from the steven soderbergh film. I think that because a large part of it is improvised. There is not that neatness of dialogue. Which is actually interesting and again for someone who likes to do things. I think it's cool to see soderbergh kind of figure out what to do with the emotions and what these actresses like throw into the mix but you you watched it and slapped me and we're dislike okay so it's just a deborah is in short story it does it feels contained. It feels like we did this and we thought through some feelings and now we move on which you don't filmmakers of. His caliber aren't doing that in anymore in any capacity. That's exactly right. I mean i sent that. I sent you that message. Not a dominion of the work or criticism. I was just like there's just there know movies like this..

"Okay amanda speaking of pegs. We had been planning to do this. Steven soderbergh episode. I interviewed steven soderbergh and then thirty minutes after we got off of our zoom. Call a piece of news. Came across the transom. And that that is that steven soderbergh is going to be one of the producers of next year's academy awards ceremony. Would you think about that news. I love it my number one guy and my number one awards. Show thank you steven soderbergh. We needed this. Lord knows the oscars needed it. Just a plus for me the happiest like the most exclamation points that i've sent you really or used in any context in twenty twenty. I think we'd been softly dreading the oscars next year because of amount of films that were rolling out and what an award show looks like during the pandemic and all these other things. This news comes along the producer. Jesse collins the oscar nominated producer. Stacy cher who has worked with steve berg in the past and of course the man himself who is well known to be one of the most innovative mischievous thoughtful creative figures in hollywood for the last thirty years and so what better way to explore and exploit some of that creativity than by revive afyon. Something reinventing something. Hopefully that desperately needs some reinvention. I think this is just plainly. Great news at least for this podcast. I think it's great news for the oscars. I'm thrilled that steven soderbergh was willing to do it. I mean i think traditionally the oscars certainly hosting the oscars have been understood to be a thankless task. And we were driving in large part. Because i think we couldn't conceptualize what it would be. There is like the physical challenges of. Can you have all those people in a room. In april of twenty twenty no idea what will it look like how. Well what films will qualify. What phones we rewarded. Who will have seen them. Were people even care. You know it's been such a strange year for the movie industry and just having steven soderbergh. Reinvented is i couldn't even think of something. That is such a good idea. But i'm like oh great. Now i wanna know what it's going to be. He's can completely just a one off. If it's just like the very weird twenty twenty one oscars as conceived by steven soderbergh. That will be delightful and a lot of ways that is just all you can hope for and then perhaps we move on with like.

"Apparently with her flat weather throw I okay so. I usually am Nerd about best original song and like all of these performances. This year all of the songs were performed. There is no greater spectacle than bjork singing in her swan dress. I vividly remember the crouching tiger song performance which. I don't think i ever even noticed in the movie before but james shameless which is nuts. Donelson nominee. I guess just kind of the spectacle of that is what i always want to see on the oscars and there seems to be kind of a reticence to have this kind of huge broad spectacle. Just for the hell of it anymore. So that's definitely a treasured memory from the ceremony. Bit you katie. I didn't get to watch it. So i have like the the fuzzy memories like everybody else like i had to be reminded that bjork's swan address was part of it But i certainly want to rewatch. I wonder how bonkers issued otaru. Speech must've been or was he was. He was super super. You had to really. But i did want to point him out of someone who i feel like one the right oscar at the right time like he has done interesting work. He's done terrible work like he's had ups and downs less than two years. Everybody but like this is a great performance. He is a valuable movie star. This was the time to give it to him. So i'm really grateful for that. Totally my favorite actually might be steven soderbergh. Who's like i'm gonna take. everyone privately. Speeches actually one that like for years the talking about like the producers telling the the nominees. What kind of speeches to give for years. They held up the soderbergh speech for as the ideal busy literally. Played it at the nominees luncheon. Maybe soderbergh just wanted that afterwards. That like oh. I was just like i was drunk. I didn't know what to say like whatever but it's this incredible sort of really heartfelt s- statement in support of our art and artists. And i think what the producers love about it. I think they hate the laundry list of thank yous like. They think you'll doesn't care about you. Know whatever but it's a really lovely speech one of one of my favorites also steven soderbergh. We were talking about you. Know going right onto ocean's eleven on a five film run out of sight. The limy has traffic ocean's eleven in like four years. It's been us three. Yeah steven soderbergh.

Noah Baumbach Digs Into A 'Marriage Story'
"It's the opening scene in the film ahead of a screening of marriage story at the telluride film festival this year and in front of a live audience. I spoke with driver.

Honor driver was at telluride for marriage story and another upcoming movie the report in which he plays a US Senate investigator looking into this as use of torture after nine. Eleven driver explain what his relationships are like with directors. He's worked with multiple times and that list includes Jim Jarmusch and marriage story. Filmmaker Noah Baumbach. There's there's something that we are way of working. Our work ethic is similar in that. They don't take it for granted that we're making a movie. The has the potential to reach a plays that as far away and either give language to a culture. That's completely different than ours. And someone's paying a lot of money for us to be here right right now for this amount of time to do this thing that will last forever and labeled the feeling and how powerful that is why why take that for granted why show up and kind of wing it you know or not. Consider what it is. You're saying and that no detail is too who small now. Obviously there's traps and all of that that you can get so worked up in details that you're trying to control everything and don't leave room for you know something. That's more abstract with those people. They're brilliant writers and create a set an environment onset where you're free to You know all those things that hope from from people you're free to get it wrong and you're free to explore and but really don't take it for granted if I was trying to summarize summarize it which is kind of hard. They very much curated the people that they want to work with in front and behind the camera and you feel like as much as everything thing is both has meaning and as meaningless. You don't don't take it for granted and finding people that have your same work ethic gets a rare thing. I think I just repeated myself three times the best show of hands. How many people in telluride for the atom driver double feature marriage story and the report? Wow okay. That's about half a house as quick question without spoiling either film. I WanNa ask you about Dan. Jones and CIA's post nine eleven detention and interrogation program which a lot of people would call torture. They call it extreme rendition of the things. What would you say about that film going into it without giving it away about why? That movie spoke. Oh Q.. And why you thought it was something you wanted to do. I mean the topic is was something that I you know embarrassing. They didn't know anything about and I mean the original report is over six thousand thousand pages. The redacted version is just over five hundred and our script with one hundred thirty. How do you how do you tell that story as economically as possible astle but not without leaving the humanity out of it so that all of those things just an opportunity to potentially bring a topic to light that has been in the dark and that I was inspired by you? Hope there's people like that in a room alone toiling away for six years with no support trying to trying to make a difference and that relationship with something that you've grown up with thinking that you can trust and suddenly you know you have to not only do you feel like you're trying to make a moral judgment for the country but internally as well they all those the reasons why I want to do it you were recently doing. Burn this and I'm wondering when you're doing it play and then going. Lean into film or television. What are the things that you might miss retain as an actor? WHO's doing a show in front of a different audience every night when you're not able oh to replicate that on a film set yeah? It's a totally different thing. It's I working with Mila. For example he likes to do a lot of takes and that actually feels more familiar to working on out of play because the lines of the lines. There's no there's no Improv. This is what it is blocking it out. But the intention can be a million different things and he he structured the day smartly so we have enough time to explore all the possibilities of what it could be not just arbitrarily but I mean sometimes and and then sometimes you have to rebel against him and then just do it the way you WanNa do it just to shock yourself and shock the system and then maybe come up with something better but you know it's like a whole run of a rehearsal truncated into a day. which is I rare with? Someone like Noah and you're also rehearsing you know if you can be as much as you can before you start just being prepared to give yourself time to explore all the options and when you don't do that with a soderbergh then I tend to have regret of like you can't help but go home and imagine I had all these ideas that now but then again. Maybe those were bad ideas that I don't know oh anything. The tribute is a sham. Last question I think there are a lot of things that different people will take away from marriage story one being. If you're thinking about going into family law you might reconsider it. But what was the thing that you treasure about making this film with knowing scarlet again. That could be a long answer that I know I should keep short. I mean this movie is hard to. I feel hard to talk about because it's very personal and it was personal. The people who made a collectively and we talked about it a couple of years before we started making those conversations tens of what it's about or what will retry into are still happening but how love can transition and how that can be violent set not not physically violent but an internal violent thing of you know someone kinetically where you know. It's everything your way. Oh you were in a room together a second nature then suddenly to divorce that from yourself That could be painful but maybe it's just transitioning into something different. I thought that was a beautiful idea. This is not a sham. Adam coming up on the frame the writer and director of marriage story Noah Baumbach on capturing the heartbreak of divorce Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn. Our next guest is filmmaker Noah Bam back he wrote and directed indie darlings like Margot at the wedding and the squid and the okay all his stories often feature realistic and flawed characters and it holds true for his latest film marriage. Story Charlie and Nicole played by Adam driver ever and Scarlett Johansson are a couple struggling with the early stages of their divorce bombeck painstakingly mapped out the process of their separation. And that makes watching watching marriage story. especially if you're married a bit like watching a horror film. Here's how bombeck described the movie when we recently spoke at the Middleburg Film Festival. I've a friend who said the movie gets divorced so you don't have to which I think is a nice message from married couples relatively Glib but I can see it Netflix has another movie. That's planet Middleburg called two popes. Your movie is called Marriage Story. They both seem like obvious. Titles but almost inevitable bowl. Did you play around with other things to call this. I didn't coordinate with Fernando Morass. I I It was it was the working title from the beginning. The the idea that I'd come up with something else but like pseudo you know Phil Collins but something about the movie resisted more more specific or poetic titles things like the squid and the whale. Didn't there was no squid in the whale to be found and so I I kept coming back to it. I liked it as its in. Its simplicity. I want to ask you a little bit. Because Adam drivers said that this was a collaborative process and hobbies. You're the writer the director. But how would you describe the process of putting the story together and before we started filming what you were talking to due. At least you're actors about it from the onset. It was important for me to know who the actors who are some of the actors were in the movie. I wanted To Have Charleena Nicole in my head is inspiration but also because I wanted to bring the actors in to the process a bit I Adam. I've I've been friends with now. When so when I brought him sort of some of these ideas he would say like? Oh these are things I might. He he was interested in playing a theater director. That's you know as I remember it. That's how that came into the movie. You have often had characters who you are very articulate. That could be writers. They could be theater directors that could be. They are very capable expressing themselves and talking about. Maybe maybe what they're feeling or what they're feeling about somebody else. Is that something that you think is a pattern. That you like articulate characters who happen to have particular jobs does one beget the other. I don't know I I don't think about it like that. Quite the artistic the fact that they were artists and and creative and professional partners in this movie was I thought important and also narrative interesting because there was sort of more at stake.
"soderbergh" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"Remember Steven Soderbergh. Telling me what are the rules for yourself. You can't treat every movie every scene like movie where the route went lenses again, as with any watch it with the sound off and follow the story. We'll doing what are your rules and later on a walk among the tombstones, he really began to reinforce that with me when I directed that because I would I really wanted to very simple than he's, I'll when I was worried people wouldn't let me so cover it as well. And then I would use the coverage in the cutting room and he was, what are you doing? It's insecure. Cutting, you need pull all that out and true to your the rules you have for yourself and listen, you have these rules. Sometimes you get in the cutting room and your rules, fuck you here and there. But at the same time, there's a good way to look at it. So that was a big thing for me. Seems like Steven Soderbergh would be a really good collaborative partner on stuff. Yes. And much as Tommy, how to round he taught me how to direct and because the at least a lot of it in terms of, of the visual language, and I thought understood it 'cause I write visually and I watch movies, but I really I was making it hard for myself. There was too much. Look, mom directing. And I it's wasn't natural for me. And when I asked, you know, in a walk among the tombstones after that, I did this pilot that, that didn't end up getting picked up, but I really was very rigorous about following my own rules and was great. It came out, really good. And on, godless. I really chase down idea animated a lot easier for me. Listen there times where you, you wish on this or done that at least decision making is no, we're not using that land that we're not doing it that way, or, and I had already understood. Composition and and color palate. And all that, but I wasn't I wasn't necessarily secure enough to say, no, you don't need. This is the idea. You have shoot that idea don't shoot anything else, and it worked out, great on, on the last one, and we'll see how it goes on the next one that pilot that you shot for Hoke where you a big Charles Wolford fan before that giant, Charles will nice the people that affects my loved and love, and our great people. I think they, it's very small. Those stories are very small stories and they weren't wrong. I don't think you know, they trying to figure out how to make more about something and how is about how, you know, that's really it. And so not happy. I think they were worried that it was gonna be they'd have a couple of shows that were kind of like that, that didn't work. I think they were worried about it. And you know what they're probably. The right FX is probably not the right place for it at the time and probably would have done better somewhere else. Is there any chance that there's going to be a screener of that leaked someplace now, I don't think so, because the cut the final cut of it isn't the cut, I like there was a cut before the one before. I'd cut everything I started chasing green light with them a little bit in the movie in the pilot got worse in terms of plot. And so, I feel like it's missing so much stuff..
Roma debate involves some hard truths
"Took home three Oscars, but it didn't win the trophy for best picture, and it sure sparked a big debate this award season. The Netflix film directed by Alphonso Cuaron was not embraced by theater owners as well as some academy voters because it landed on the streaming site right around the same time. It was offered to exhibitors it's called a day and date release. Typically theater owners want exclusive rights to a movie for several months before it starts appearing on streaming platforms and on DVD. But now Netflix might be thinking about going back to that traditional release pattern. I spoke with the Hollywood reporter senior film editor Rebecca Keegan about an upcoming net. Flix film directed by Martin Scorsese. The movie is called the Irishman. And she started with what Netflix learned from Roma. Flicks had held fast to this day and date release strategy until this past award season when they. They introduced a very small theatrical window a three week window for Roma in one week windows for a couple of other films. That is not a big enough window that it won them any fans among theater owners who still really see the company has kind of public enemy number one. As do many traditional lists in the business who who feel that the obstacle exhibition is a big part of what makes something a movie. So there are a couple things now that are at stake. There is the question of what filmmakers and filmmakers like Martin Scorsese want in terms of how their films are exhibited. And then there's the whole question of whether or not Netflix failure to be able to release Roma in a material way in theaters hurt its Academy Award chances for best picture. Well, it varies with the filmmaker. Of course. But when you're talking about a director like Martin Scorsese who is ultimately such a traditionalist. You know, he's still shoots movies on film. He is a lover of classic film square. Sese? He feels very strongly that he likes his movies to be seen in a movie theater. And so with filmmaker like this, it's very very important. It was also important to help Alfonso Koran even after he'd won his three Oscars. He talked about the importance of the theatrical exhibition experience, so most of these sort of top tier filmmakers want their movies in theaters, and you have reported as have some other people that the fact that Roma did not have a real theatrical release might have actually irked some Oscar voters, and they penalize the movie by not voting for it for best picture to have that. Right. That's right. I mean, some of the academy members ice spoke to said they deliberately put Roma last on their preferential ballot for best picture because they wanna penalize the business model by which Roma was released. Now, you can sort of take issue with that. But for some of these people, they see Netflix has really an existential. Get and it's not just theater owners. That are a little bit uncomfortable with the Netflix model their people like Steven Spielberg who had an opinion about it. What is Spielberg pushing for? We'll spill Berg has historically objected to net. Flicks. He says that they're movies should win Emmys that they're basically made for television movies. He's now behind the scenes pushing for a rule change at the academy that would require a theatrical release of a certain window four weeks is what I'm hearing from my sources in order for movie to be eligible for an Oscar those currently a rule that was passed in twenty twelve the doesn't require any kind of exclusive theatrical release at all. So the Irishman is obviously a big bet that Netflix has made with Martin Scorsese, but it's not the only name brand filmmaker that they're in business with other other movies where they might be looking at some sort of the ethical release before a movie appears on the streaming service. Yeah, Netflix has a lot of very promise. Saying awards movies in the works. They've got an untitled movie from Noah baumbach movies from a D Reese, Steven Soderbergh. David michaud. I mean, these are filmmakers who have had a lot of awards recognition in the past. And I would expect their movies to be of a particular quality where if Netflix wants to be in the awards game. They will do some version of what they did for Rome. What which is to give a movie a theatrical release of some type. So it's one thing for Netflix to say, we wanna do a theatrical release. It's another thing for Martin Scorsese to say, I want my film to have a theatrical release. What are the theater owners saying because ultimately they get to decide what movies are and are not exhibited in their chains. That's right. And the chains have a lot of power for a release of the type that I am hearing Martin Scorsese wants for the Irishman. You need the chains to buy an AMC regal and the others the chains. Want a couple of things they want Netflix too. Have a much bigger theatrical window than it did with Roma. They also were saying that they will report box office to calm score. Which is the company that we all get our box office information from one of the things that was controversial about the way Netflix handled Romo was that. It did not report box office. And it did not allow the theaters where it was playing to report box office AMC and regal say we don't play that way. If you're showing in our theaters we're going to report box office. And I don't know if it's an insult to people who drink or people who sale, but Netflix has been spending money like drunken, sailors. Is there anything that would prevent them from buying theater chain and just doing a work around where they have their own theaters. And don't have to worry about exhibitors. There was a period where net looks was said to be looking at landmark but last December that chain sold to the Cohen media group. But certainly Netflix has a history of buying what it wants if you look just at the billboards that it bought and you. Used heavily to promote Roma net. Flicks is happy to write a check to solve a problem. Netflix does not only spent a lot of money making the Irishman. But also bought a very prominent ad in the middle of the Academy Awards broadcast. How important was that step? Well, it was definitely an expensive ad if you look at ABC was charging two to three million for thirty seconds spots. That was a sixty seconds spot. And it was definitely the company announcing big broad intentions for this Martin Scorsese movie. So maybe come a year from now we'll be talking about the Irishman either in or out of the Academy Award race. I guess the movie has to be good. I so we'll see what happens there.
"soderbergh" Discussed on Invention
"All right. We're back. So you remember the story? We don't know if it's true. But the story that in a Bertha we'll feel homerun kipnes wife after she saw the x Ray of her hand. She said I have seen my death, and that's interesting in multiple ways because it sort of unknowingly portends the risks the dangers of x-rays. But also, I think what she would have meant by that is that she could see her skeleton she could see inside her own body. And this was something so unusual to people at the time. Right. I mean, in many cases, essentially, what a doctor is able to do is take the X Ray and say, oh, I see your death right here, but we can remove don't worry about it. Right. I mean, it's not always this is an oversimplification and doesn't apply to all medical scenarios? But it again, it does give us this. Phenomenal ability to look inside the body and see in some cases, things that shouldn't be there conditions that should not be there or the evidence of injury and soon. After the discovery of x rays. In fact, very soon after it was almost immediately picked up for medical uses. Yeah. Everything from examining broken bones to as we mentioned finding lost bullets in a body now as with pretty much any cutting edge medical technology found at the dawn of the twentieth century. You can find terrific look at at at x Ray technology in the Steven Soderbergh medical drama, the knit which I think I've mentioned on this show before definitely mentioned on stuff to blow your mind before. There's just a fabulous drama that wasn't seen by enough people in the two seasons that ran a highly recommend anyone pick it up because in season one episode six the hospital at the center of this drama. They acquire a second hand x Ray machine in the whole time. There's there's just reckless use of x-rays episode because again, we're in a period of time where there's all this enthusiasm about the about the technology..
"soderbergh" Discussed on The Filmcast
"Fairly distinctive filmmaker and just ends up feeling like like a cop like a pretty low grade copy of something rather than something bold and original but nothing nothing against the film i mean it is fun but i did go back and rewatch ocean's eleven and twelve just to make sure that my viewpoint on this was defensible just to be like okay steven soderbergh actually in fact distinctive like is the quality of our visa are they in fact higher and i think the answer is yes i ocean's eleven helped create this this genre was parodied endlessly had a lot of cultural impact in a way that other movies didn't and i think it still holds up as a really fun caper osias twelfth this is a movie that's extremely divisive so much fun yeah you see twelve course yeah loved it i really did i like the both eleven and twelve i really believe we reviewed twelve on the on the totally rad show if i'm not mistaken but yeah by the way quick side note do you think they call it oceans eight this time lee so they could leave for a trilogy we talked about this last week on the show when you now that is that is one of the reasons because they kind of eight nine ten in based on the box office performance it looks like we'll be we'll be the case like it is doing pretty well so we'll see how it does i really wanna see i haven't seen it yet myself but you know based on what you're saying i can totally understand but i also get the idea that that visual style is a little bit the series you know i i understand maybe you would want to come in and put their own stamp on things and be bold and original but i can also understand feeling like well that connectik soderbergh thing is kind of part of the package that you're selling so i couldn't say somebody you differently though right like guerrero they think has similar styles and you look at like baby driver or something and it's it's just a different way of playing the.

"Yeah there's it also lends itself to a lot of long single takes but we usually think of those as being you know really dramatic and can calling attention but no here the camera doesn't move at all it just sits there on the desk looking at the character now we do get especially when we move into the institution there are a few tracking shots however whatever you call it when i phoned is involved but there's a little more movement there and then there's that you know the really show off bravura sequence which i did live she losey yes she gets a dose of medication she wasn't supposed to and it's not only you know what we've seen is the camera placed almost must be attached to her back somehow just above her head looking down at her but then the super imposition yes her silver seeing her face and what she sees in the back of her head her face through really jarring she's going through a violent episode so she's moving frantically around the room and the sound design and music here as well which is very sparse it doesn't come up often mostly this is just a quiet film but then often in moments of violence you'll get there's a bit a bit of scoring here but really more designed there's popping scraping really disturbing scraping noises and that definitely comes into play during that sequence where she's lost control yeah i think about that scene early on to that we touched on where she's at work and she is being very forceful with her client and she says something that i do think kind of cues you into one of the themes soderbergh is possibly exploring here where she's basically saying i've analyze all the data and i've given you the facts and you don't like the interpretation the idea being that everything ultimately is up for grabs that almost anything is subjective based on the perspective of the person who's looking at it and this movie with those iphone shots becomes one about how we as viewers perceive her how we perceive other people seeing her how she perceives herself every character at some point has established sort of a narrative for themselves that they are trying to follow and at some points that narrative gets.
