And now he's no longer with us We're just now learning about his colon cancer diagnosis in two thousand sixteen the same year that Black Panther went into production, which means that like he never spoke publicly about it and also like you're just. I think a refrain over the weekend like all of our across all channels social media was just like you never know what someone's going through then. Dog this is like an extreme case of that because it's not just he never spoke about it. It was the fact that he will multiple rounds of cheap like he was. I don't know you've watched five bloods.

Visions For Hollywoods Future with Ruth Carter

"Welcome to our podcast it's where we ask some of the entertainment industry's brightest minds what they do to fix what's broken when production resumes versed up costume designer Ruth Carter she's worked on films like Spike Lee's do the right thing. Steven. Spielberg's Amistad and the upcoming coming to America Sequel and at the Twenty Nine Thousand Nine Academy Awards this happened to her. Black Panther Raw. Nomination. She won for her work on Ryan Koukoulas Black Panther and that made her the first black person to ever win an academy award for costume design. This has been a long time come in. Bike leave. Thank you for my star. I hope this makes you crawl. Carter was also the first black person to be nominated for an academy award for Costume Design Way back in Nineteen ninety-three for Malcolm X. Despite her personal success Carter believes, there's always been something fundamentally wrong in Hollywood I think was built on broken narratives. and think about w griffiths or the nation. It was totally broken narratives and. People bought into it Hook, line and sinker, and that became you know the standard. In Hollywood itself even though stones were were going on people were in red face and black face 'cause there are people behind the scenes. Building those costumes and doing the props and they were people colored doing all kinds of supportive crafts that created the that cinematic events that was not including them. So I. Feel like the the work is to be done still adds shine the light on a lot of these supportive of people not only as directors and producers also as Crespi like myself. Back when Ruth Carter was getting her start in costume design is she didn't have a lot of role models and at a certain point as she progressed in her career Carter realized that she was blazing a trail for others. I wasn't overly concerned about a mentor that looked like me and the beginning because I expected that there wouldn't be any or many I. I look for Kassim designer that I wanted to be like and so I was forging this path of united. Volunteer. At Western costume when it was on melrose and I'd hear the names of costume designers over the loudspeaker being summoned to calls I thought wow that's melena cannon narrow. I've heard of her wow that's an rock I've seen all of her pills and I looked at my role as an artist and I was seeking out other artists as a black woman. I started to realize when work with spy can I started become more of a film student I started in theater There wasn't very much representation in front of the camera and behind the camera and it was you know our quest to create images for in front of the camera that we felt represented our community better and my passion from behind the camera was to say, well, I'm here because Spike Lee said I am the costume designer for his now and now I can take on that leadership as. An artist, but also as a mentor so I always had interns I was an intern I knew the value of internships and it was my hope that there would also even though I was young in the game that there would be another person who was as passionate as I was to reach the top and I I dreamed about like, Wow, what if I were to win the asker like? And tastic would that be And realize after I got on stage a may also before but especially after winning that I was a roll off.

Summer Movies 2020: What to Stream, What's Delayed

"Pandemic has totally thrown summer movie season for a loop. Lots of movies are going straight to streaming. Judd apoptosis and our Shirley's the roads and our welfare, but which streaming movies are really worth your time. And what will the pandemic mean for the film industry, and are we ever actually going to see tenant? The Big Budget Christopher Nolan Sci fi flick scheduled to come out in August. Will we ever see that on the big screen where it is meant to be seen? Well the answer to that question may actually be never. We just found out. That film has been delayed indefinitely, but there's still a lot more to discuss and here to talk us through it. Is Eliana Dr Men? She writes about movies and pop culture and Feminism for time Eliana. Hi, hi, how's it going good? How are you? Good holding up. So I think my first question just has to be like. Is there a summer blockbuster season this year? What happened? Yeah, I feel like saying. There's no summer blockbuster. Season is a little road to the movies that have come out on Vod vod meaning video demand, because a lot of stuff is just going straight to streaming racked. Yes, the things that are going straight to streaming which there have been some good things. But this certainly has not had the momentous feel of a usual summer where I convince my closest friends to go spend a ridiculous money to go see a movie in amax because it's summer and that's what you do. That is not happening. Hollywood has been a little circumspect about that. Keep moving movies that they insist have to count in theaters with good reason for some of 'em a movie like ten it would be much less fun to watch for the first time at home, but they keep sort of delaying it by two week increments, and delaying delaying delaying and I suspect that those delays will go into twenty twenty want, but we'll see. Yet kind of reminds me of early on in pandemic times it was probably like late maybe mid late February, when I found out that the the new James Bond movie was being delayed. Because that was supposed to come out in April. And they decided they moved it to like November. But I remember it was one of the first moment sitting at work when I saw the news where I was like. Oh. This pandemic is real. Yeah that was at the time I remember. Having discussions internally at time and just thinking personally. It's crazy that they're big to November. Why would they be November now? They look like geniuses because they sort of as this has continued to happen. All of these movies are rushing to find different dates, and I've sort of compared. You know finding the right movie release date to picking perfect wedding date. You don't want overlap with another big release that would. Not all the guests are going to come. And you also want to find a weekend when you know. A lot of people are free, so holiday weekends are always big Christmas thanksgiving Labor Day that sort of thing, so there's been just this total crush of movies. Where right now if things go the way that they are currently planned? We're just going to have a million movies released in November and December I. Don't think that that will actually happen, but they sort of James Bond beat everyone to the punch by claiming that date early. Right naming you know here. We are coming up on August. August like who knows what November's even GonNa. Look like yeah, exactly so I do think that most of those movies will probably move to twenty twenty one as well who knows, but it's sort of worst on such an ad hoc basis with all of this right now that I think the studios are also concerned and confused of course, so yeah, obviously you can't tell the future, but I do wonder like. Do you have a sense? You know you say? Probably? A million movies are gonNA drop in November December early. That's kind of the planet this point. is they're then going to be just like a huge drop off because of the stuff that should have been produced over the course of this year. That wasn't able to be because of the pandemic. I don't think we'll actually see that. Drop off until twenty twenty two because a lot of big movies that were supposed to come out this year like I remember another big kind of moment of this pandemic was real is when fast and furious nine moved from a spring of twenty, trying to spring of two thousand, twenty one, which also it doesn't the one that's taking place on Mars or something I think that the rumor is that they. I think that the actual poll of this. Is that this character Han? Who is very unjustly killed off a few movies ago, Mac so there's a whole justice for Han. A whole separate on my fast furious. Good to know. Just in case you're looking for. You on the list. So a lot of those movies have waited a full year. The top gun movie was delayed till Christmas. I think actually, but there are few other movies that have been delay pushed it back a full year. Yeah, push back a full year, so I think we will still get a crowded summer twenty twenty. One I think that we're really going to see the impact. In Twenty, twenty two where the delays in filming movies are are actually going to sort of manifest and that will be very strange. That's really interesting. So you say you don't want to do a disservice to the movies that have come out this summer that have gone straight to streaming services. What do you think are some the standouts that people shouldn't miss so I? Think that a few things have come out that have been great and entertaining, one big standout and profit by saying a lot of these movies are going to be on Netflix. Because Netflix was just more prepared for this than anybody else. WHO Like match? A four site that a pandemic was going to happen, but just by virtue of they drop a new movie every week at this point and write them have to be good. I think. The five bloods, which is Spike Lee movie that dropped on that flicks on June twelfth, and is h front runner in the very weird Oscar season. We're GONNA. Have a mom so far is definitely a standout. I think that that's one that is well worth people's time especially because there are going to be so few kind of prestige, Oscar movies that I think come out the series. Well that if you want to turn Oscar Susan that that is the way to go, okay so that one stands out I mean Hamilton. I watched as soon as dropped and APPS as. Everyone else I talked to did and I think they did a really good job of translating that to screen. Obviously, there's some reconsideration of Hamilton right now and rate. How good of a job it does! reckoning with the racism of the time. But I do think that unlike a lot of sort of problematic properties that were dealing with the summer lamelo Miranda has sort of owned up in participated in that conversations would say watch it with a grain of salt, and then go right you an internet deep dive. Researcher Slavery. And Google Hamilton slavery and just set aside a few hours for that So I think that stands out, I also really loved Palm Springs I'll too I just saw over the weekend, and I thought it was delightful. It felt like. Again try not to shade net flicks too much, but palm springs is one of the first movies released in quarantine that felt like an actual movie to me. and this came on Hulu. It came out on Hulu. It was the biggest purchase out of Sundance ever how it was supposed to be released in theaters. It was very much treated as an indie movie, but a big indie movie randy's hamburger than most people know about these days right and lonely island Andy. Sandberg's group produced it There's some Hollywood power behind it, but it felt like a fully finished movie with. With, the quirks of actual writers, directors incorporated in there and character development whereas I dunno some of the net flicks movies can feel a little bit empty to me like there was a concept and not a lot of follow through So this palm springs stood out to me. Is One a good rom com, which are hard to come by these days in to like. It felt like I would go to theater and pay money to see this movie. Yeah, totally so those are those are sort of a few that have come out so far that definitely stand out to me. As being people's time one that I've been hearing a lot about speaking of net flicks. is the old guard. I haven't watched it yet. What do you recommend it? So I do I mean? The old guard is sorta falls into that category of doesn't feel quite like a complete would be released in theaters film. And I don't. I can put my finger quite on. Why except that? I think that you know the premise of the movie is that these immortal beings are basically you know. superheroes that are constantly saving the world. I would watch that. Yeah, it's definitely entertaining, and like it's Shirley stare on shortly surrounds Great Gina Prince would who directed love and basketball won't have the greatest films of all time. Directed this and I think she does a good job. I do wish that these immortal beings were a little more interesting like if they've lived for thousands of if they had lived for thousands of years, I wish they had. More interesting quirks more things to say about the state of the world. That's a fair critique. Nothing can be perfect. It's definitely a diverted way to spend a couple of hours, and you know well worth people's time if they are looking for bad action, movies, and and kind of not even bad like. This is terrible action movie, but just like not A. Junk food. Yes, junk food. That is the perfect word for it which I mean like. Maybe the bar is really low now. Anyway. Right because it's like if I'm not leaving my house. If I got nothing to do then why not eat some junk food? You know exactly and I think that the I think that Hollywood is scared that we're going to get so used to junk food that we're not going to want to spend a little extra money on not junk food. After this is all over and that will sort of accepts. This is movies now. The netflix version of movies that feels a little bad for me and lacking in a little substance is just going to be the state of the world, and we're not going to spend the extra money to for example, see Palm Springs in theaters or see you know the Irishman in theaters vs on Netflix. To use another sort of direct networks parallel right so. What you're saying, is that essentially like if we are getting used to a lower quality than than what is our incentive to WanNa like go to the theater and spend a bunch of money. An let alone the fact that we're also like sitting. You know theoretically at least shoulder to shoulder with strangers, which is not a thing that people are super interested in doing right now during a pandemic. What do you think is sort of like the future of the movie theater industry? Like are they just doomed? Yeah, it's really hard. I mean as someone who watches a lot of movies, both in my personal life, and for work I cannot wait to get back to the movie theater. Going experience and I do think that there is that sort of feeling that once it is safe. I would happily walk several miles to go. Sit in a big theater next to some co workers or friends. Friends and watch a movie like Ted I. Wait for that to happen I am not comfortable doing right now. Though I do think that it's going to be a question of timing, and how long movie theaters can survive financially until moment where we do feel comfortable all coming back and I think that there's this fantasy that a movie like tenant or a movie like move on. It's just GonNa stuff movie theaters right off the Bat and there's going to be a moment where we all decide. Yes, this is the weekend where it's safe again. where I'm excited about going to the movies and I WANNA. Go sit next to a bunch of strangers and have them. You know spill popcorn on me. I don't think that that I. think that. That's sort of this illusive fantasy I. Don't think that that's going to be the case I. Think it's going to be a very slow trickle. I don't think people are chomping at the bit to go to the movie theaters I do think that that is why studios have been holding back the. Most expensive contents for kind of lack of a better categorization. Is because they don't want to give us Moulana streaming at home, and then have us come to expect okay I'll just wait for Milan's come onstream. I think that they want to create the incentive to go to the movie theater because it is so essential to their business. Surviving I just think that you know that means we might have many more months of not so great content. So, you're saying that it's not only like AMC theaters who need movie theaters to exist, but also Hollywood itself. Yes Hollywood definitely need movie theater to exist I mean the reason that you can make a movie like tenant for hundreds of millions of dollars is because you make. Hundreds of millions of dollars back by selling movie theater tickets. There's just no way that they can make that on Vod. It's not possible, so we'll see how they strategize it going forward, but I think sort of takeaway from this is that Netflix was already fighting it into the Hollywood. Business an Hollywood was not prepared for it, and this is just accelerating the process. So you've mentioned tenant a couple times, this is the newest is it's Sifi right from Christopher Nolan. Yes, it's a new Christopher Nolan movie. The reason I keep mentioning Tenet is because Christopher Nolan. Or Warner brothers have styled tenant as sort of the movie that is going to save the summer blockbuster season. They keep talking about is the first big movie that's going to open the movie. That's going to draw people back to theaters movie. That's GonNa save movie theaters the movie that's going to save the concept of summer blockbuster the movie that's GonNa. Make us feel better again and. I mean that sounds great i. does sound great I mean in fairness them. It's a good movie to pick to pin that on. Because Christopher Nolan is one of if not the only director left who can drop a totally original film that has nothing to do with comic book series. A book is not marble is not DC, NI, and, but this is still one of those like big loud movies. That's like perfect for a movie like a theater going experience that right, yes, yeah heart of the appeal of a movie like ten is that you see it with a big group of people rate, and then will gasp at the same reveal exactly like some of my favorite summer. Summer movie moments are the moments where you know. Something crazy happens in everybody screams. Everybody laughs I think of I. Guess is two summers ago. When the last mission impossible became out and spoiler alert for the first half hour of the mission impossible movie, there's a moment where they are jumping out of an airplane. A character gets struck by lightning and funny in this amass the lost bear market. And as well as the greatest movie memories ever had because it was just this collaborative woman just happened. And those are the best. That's amazing. That's so good well, even though we have just learned that the ten release has been delayed indefinitely, I hope cautiously optimistic that that will. That will have that again someday soon, ish. I hope so too. And in the meantime there are things to watch at home They might not be the things that we were excited about several months ago. but there are things to watch at home, and after this kind of summer movie season is over frankly studios graft figure out what to do with their Oscar contents, and I would not be surprised if a lot of them just get released straight to streaming so that they can qualify for the Oscars this year. Wow, the Oscars, which have officially been postponed right, yes, the Oscars have officially been postponed, and they've also changed their rules, so that movies that are released to streaming can qualify which is a. Huge concession on their part Isis County will change the back afterwards, but it's been a big fight in Hollywood as to whether streaming movies can count for the Oscars in hopes of saving the movie theater, going experience, and so now streaming movies will qualify and I think that's going to change the calculus for a lot of studios that aren't necessarily trying to make big money movies that they are trying to win awards.

U.S. plans massive coronavirus vaccine testing effort to meet year-end deadline

"Tastes have been on the hunt for something that could shut this virus down and give us our lives back. A vaccine. A few months ago, there was a lot of excitement. As the very first clinical trials for the coronavirus began, it was in time. The search for coronavirus vaccine has become one of the fastest moving in history. That scenes usually take years not months to produce. This is happening warp speed. Never before hundreds of scientists are over the world and focused on the same thing at the same time creating a vaccine for covid nineteen. And more and more vaccine candidates are entering the fray. Were at the point, where around a dozen clinical trials are on the go. Hundreds of people volunteered for jab in the arm to test old kinds of different vaccines. As part of this scientists are taking some be gambles. The vaccine were looking at is incredibly modern type vaccine. It's not the traditional way building a vaccine, so we're going as fast as humanly possible. Many of them are not traditionally vaccine companies. They are using novel ideas from oncology things. They've learned treating cancer. It's never been used in a vaccine before. And if one of these gambles payoff, it could be huge, we could get a vaccine soon. The US government says that the goal is to get a vaccine to Americans by January twenty twenty one. They're calling this nation warp speed. And if it could be done, this would be unprecedented. So could we really be celebrating twenty one with Champagne and shot in the arm to fight the coronavirus? And? What would it take to make that happen? That's Today on the show. Because when it comes to getting a vaccine, it feels like this is happening at warp speed, but then there's. Science. Scientist is when on Earth Are we getting? This vaccine is coming up to stop to the break. This episode of science versus is sponsored by Phillips Sonacare the electric toothbrush that combines decades of science and engineering to master the art of brushing with sixty two thousand brushstrokes minute you've got a month's worth of brushing in just two minutes for better checkups, guaranteed or your money back visit Phillips. Dot Com slash sonacare. This episode of science versus is brought to you by AFLAC. That lovable duct does more than just say. AFLAC access a safety net when the unexpected happens by helping with the expenses. That health insurance doesn't cover. Get to know them at half dot com. Welcome back. So back in January. We had from people like Anthony Fauci that we could get a vaccine in twelve to eighteen months. That could mean early next year. And in the land of vaccines, these would be record breaking. It often takes something like ten years for a vaccine to from the lab to the doctor's office. So can we really do it? Get Out of this pandemic by January, before Santa even catches these brands. Well to get them labs. All around the world s around experimenting with different kinds of vaccines. But they all have the same goal to train our immune system to recognize and killed this coronavirus. And to do that, many vaccine developers have homed in on one thing. Progress. And northwestern told us all about it. If you think about the picture that you've seen corona virus like everywhere, and it looks like a ball with little points coming out. Those points the spike. Spike protein you know it, I, know it. It's the most famous spikes in Spike Lee and the most famous protein since. College Eddie right. This spike is so important because it's a major thing that tells our body weight this virus. It doesn't belong here. That actually is what argue system fees most readily. It sees the spike. After our meeting system sees the spike. It lends to recognize quickly. Respond to it by creating things like antibodies to fight it, and then some of those antibodies hang around so that if the virus shows up, then the virus will just be cleared away by our immune system. So that the next time we see that disease, we don't get sick in the first place, so if you making Exane, how do you get your immune system to quickly recognized this spike? Well, one way is that scientists can take rhinovirus and then make less dangerous. Say They Kill the virus most comedy vaccines are made by growing up the virus. And inactivating that virus sometimes with the chemical, sometimes the heat, and then that is then injected. An otherwise scientists can do this version of the virus. That's too weak to make you sick. And this is how we make a lot of vaccines familiar with things like the measles and chickenpox and flu vaccines. It's tried and tested. We know it can work and some companies are going this way to try to make Alka, rhinovirus vaccine. But other groups at. This meat and potatoes vaccine method they using new attack more experimental ways of building vaccine. And these experimental methods getting a ton of attention and funding right now, because governments and big. Pharma hoping they'll deliver the goods pasta. So for they use instead of giving you a whole coronavirus, these vaccines, basically using genetic material from the coronavirus, and then they're plopping that into your body. And scientists have chosen a very particular piece of genetic material spike. It's the recipe for the spike, protein. And this can come in a couple of forms. One is called. Our body will see that as a normal M Arnie and just translate into a pro team. Wow, so this. If this vaccine works, it would encourage your body to make little corona virus proteins. Yes that's that's the idea. Wow, that seems so futuristic. As as is, that's really cool right, so you're getting the body degenerate that protein for you yet, so these spike proteins that your body has made will then be floating around and the idea. Is that your immune system? We'll see it. Make antibodies send Ta. You'll have immunity. And many of the vaccines in this race, delivering this genetic material to us in different ways, so some shopping Marin into a ball of fat, so that your cells will slip up while other groups trying to smuggle in that code using get this a totally different virus one. That weren't hurt you. Is it fantasy that they've taken a different virus? And then they're like like Halloween the dressing at all like the corona virus, yes. Say. So this all sounds a little bunk is mad. The question is will it really work that is. Will these vaccines protectiveness if we get exposed to the coronavirus? Because if they don't. Like on a useless. My boss is to stay if it's just dishwater that you're not gonNA get anywhere. This is Katie Stevenson. She's a doctor working on vaccine development at Harvard and she says that one of the key ways will know if a vaccine is working is if it makes you produce antibodies. And she's looking for not just any antibodies. But neutralizing antibodies, what what is a neutralizing antibodies? So a neutralizing antibody is an antibody that binds to virus and neutralizes it. This is the dream right? Yeah, exactly right inches binds to the virus and prevent it from entering a cell. So the body sees that and just thrown in the garbage to this is what Katie is going to be looking for. In the results of all these clinical trials, and if she doesn't see these neutralizing antibodies, shelby thinking well, that was kind of done. And Katie says I dealing see a lot of these. So! What's a lot? Well you measure milk leases. Okay so I've measure milk. And you can measure antibodies titus. So one study, which looked at people who had been infected with this virus, and then recovered found the antibody. Titus tended to be at least one hundred. And when Katie's colleague vaccinated monkeys with an experimental vaccine, they found that having similar antibody Tom of one hundred protected them from getting infected. So while we're still learning a lot, he all I have been kind of looking for one one hundred. Okay, that's it's nice, poetic, great one hundred yeah! We have a handful of results that companies have released from different clinical trials, but just one paper that's published in a peer review gentle. It was from a Chinese local company who injected more than one hundred people with one of those new fandango vaccines and it was back in March. They tested three different doses. And Katie says they didn't get. This antibody tighter. Like at the highest dose averaged around Bootie for you know I was a little bit disappointed, so a little bit reserved I'm happy that it elicited an immune response because that's not a given. Sometimes, it's just zero zero zero but I would've liked to see something closer to like one hundred another company. Medina injected forty five people back in March with the vaccine, and they said that eight people had good levels of neutralizing antibodies. But they didn't tell us about the opposite in the trial. When we asked dinner about this, we didn't hear back to Katie is holding out for more info. Yeah, I just wanted to see the rest because it is immune. A- promising I'd put promising right on there. But I do not know which one of these is GonNa work if any, and that that is the actual fact truth so I try not to stray from that, and there are other FAC truths to nail down him. Even if these vaccines do make you produce produces, antibodies will still have to make absolutely short that you'll protected from the corona virus. If you do get exposed, and then if you protected, we'll have to work out how long four so you might need. More than one shot of the vaccine say a booster shot in a or so.

Davidson movie movies like spike Lee's movie which I think has a serious shot at some academy award nomination was supposed to open in theaters first before they went to their online platforms whether or not they will be up for academy award consideration but the Academy Awards now aren't even gonna happen until April twenty fifth instead of February twenty eight so pushed back a couple of months any movie that comes out between now and February twenty eighth will be eligible for Oscar

"And then at the end you know when when when he wrapped then I was about to cut, but I cut. Do the right thing in six weeks. Misery you know, but but the intensity. Of cutting film rather than cutting digitally. Cutting found for me was intense. Because I I mean I would have an editing room that would have rolls of film opened up to where I wanted to go to to pull it was. All I really physical, but they'd be all over the editing room now we know where everything is so nobody could talk to me. You can say a low to me. Or I was like a house of cards. It would fall apart, so I had this great assistant editor leander sales who when he would see people that were like approaching the editing room because it was kind of. Glass Wall that we were in he would. He would just put up his hand and go on on, and he would say you would just no, no, no, no, no, no! He will anybody come in because he knew that it was all delicate for me. But as long as I keep everything there. I cut the film very very fast on this on this eight played back and it was a by six o'clock every day in those days I worked between nine and six, and I was exhausted at six. O'clock I was physically exhausted, but semi stamp spike it used to be. The day was over at six o'clock. And so. His, even all these years later, and you know they don't realize that.

"We've also asked me on twitter and we are blowing up which you y'all ready to hate on some organizations Remember not teams organizations. I want to get some your take in jamming in Atlanta and. I think we're saying this jam who you got is the worst one organization. Man I gotta say the Knicks just to put it in perspective. My Dad was just born. The last time won a championship. And when's the last time anyone has ever talked about possibly or the Knicks possibly getting a free agent and other some talking about Kevin Durant possibly going there but I think everyone knew that was not gonNA happen. And it's all because of the owner like they put so part Products out there and expect fans like Spike Lee to keep coming and it's because the fans of Spike Lee's at the Knicks relevant. And now they even lost him and thanks for the call. You know I. I appreciate the sentiment I will say. There's two sides to this spike Lee thing though I mean what we're really talking about here is a celebrity. And yes. He's the face. He's the face celebrity here synonymous with the Knicks. We're talking about the fact that he's not getting in through the employee elevator. It's not that they didn't let him in or they told him he can't say anything or they tried to stifle them in his seats won't let them use the employees elevator. Like is that that big a deal. I mean Stephen as sort of plays devil's advocate there. But I'll double down on it. I mean should spike Lee better treatment than the guys and girls that are sitting next to him. Courtside I mean. Does every courtside seats come with that level of access or we just do it because it Spike Lee. And if we're just doing it because it's by Glee what about everybody else. It's also paying an arm and leg. I mean he's sort of avoids the question of of what. It seems like if someone wants to look at him and say. Hey you're spoiled celebrity..

"And the technique here highlights that not a shock to say, you could have filled this top five list very easily with signature Spike Lee moments that evolved Denzel Washington there collaborations have just been that good here working with Matthew Liberti on inside man. I love the way this film looks. I really love everything about inside man, and that's one of my favorite moments. All right. I'm going to double down on your double Dali, pick with my number one and you're right. This technique is employed for a variety of reasons throughout Lee's films heard from a listener poll Castillo on my Larson Facebook page who nicely sum that up. He said, the character mounted Dolly shot is to me spike single, most consistent and recognisable visual tick it places the characters on a path from which they cannot divert Denzel Washington in Oklahoma and inside man. There's yours in a moment. They cannot leave. He cites Philip Seymour Hoffman and twenty fifth hour or in a world which. Revolves around them Washington. Again, in motor blues. Your other pick Paul names my choice there to my number one, Spike Lee shot. It is Denzel Washington's Malcolm x. floating toward his assassination in Lee's nineteen Ninety-two bio-pic. Now in that New York Times piece that we've cited Mocatta Murphy describes this exact shot this way he glides through at a medium shot. Look on his face. That seems to project knowledge of his fate. While Sam cooks a change is gonna come plays on the soundtrack. Cool. Okay. So why is this Lee's signature double Dolly shot to my mind. I like the tension at play here. I like that it is. Yes. Perhaps Lee's most showy technique, but it's used for the film's most subdued or mournful moment. Now, why is it my number one Spike Lee shot for this list? I think it literally visualizes the pull of history, the forces that have their say, even over a man is determined, and I kinda classic as Malcolm x. so Lee has spent his whole career pushing back against those vary forces his subversion of birth of nation. Black clansmen is a perfect example of that. And in this shot, this push poll, I don't think has ever been better represented than this shot and Malcolm x. now, that's so well said he is being pulled inexorably to that moment. He simply gave it. Whereas even as I said in the shot in inside man, he's lacking some agency. It's a complete contrast to the total lack of agency in that moment from Malcolm x. such a great seen such a great movie and an end with of course, another great movie one you've already mentioned. My number one, Spike Lee scene comes from do the right thing, and if you're a regular listener and you're thinking isn't do the right thing in the pantheon, and so it should be eligible for these lists. Well, we do tend to make exceptions when we are doing these kind of career retrospectives and it's simply seemed wrong to talk about our favorite Spike Lee shots without thinking about do the right thing. So I'm going with the opening credits, of course, fight the power a driving force behind that from public enemy. And I think one of the reasons is number one Josh's because it's the first spike image that jumps into my head. And if there are other people out there who have a similar experience, perhaps it's because it's the first Spike Lee image, many of us. Aw, and it is. Setup to a masterpiece. Rosie, Perez place, Tina. She's mckie's girlfriend. The mother of his son. Hector haven't seen do the right thing in a while, but a fairly minor role in the film overall. But she is the first character we meet and in her dancing holds the DNA of the entire movie. It's part of the credit sequence. I do think that it's hard to pick a single shot in some might pick a different one for me though. Josh is that very first static image, and I think how it's set up is key. We get the universal logo forty acres and a mule, Spike Lee joint the title, and it's all with the more traditional Spike Lee, Jess score underneath it here it's a loan saxophone playing kind of wistfully, and then a fade to black. The music fades. Like the power begins with those frame. Jump cuts of a silhouetted Peres moving within the space..

"Yes, this sounds awfully didactic and it is, but it's worth noting that school days isn't just a mouthpiece for dapper. A lot of times the movie is skeptical of some of his choices as well in critical of them. So this goes back to that idea is talking about where Lee can be preachy, but he's preaching a lot of things at once times thrown it all at you. I think that's why I don't get to clot up in the specific politics of his films and in trying to nail down exactly what is he saying in? How do I feel about that? I think this is a specially helpful with something like Sharak. Maybe why I liked it more than most. An interestingly Sharrock has a callback to the wake-up Samuel. Jackson has a wakeup shot in Shirak. So the bottom line here, I think Lee's films their calls to consciousness right there calls to wake up. I work out the politics later in the scene from school days is great example of that. Yeah. Another one of my big blind spots I had to that, I wanted to reconcile. Violator she's gotta have in school days and I was only able to make time for she's gotta have it. So you made me feel even worse about that, Josh. Thank you, great choice. My number two comes from the movie that might actually be my third favorite Spike Lee film inside man, and I'm calling it detective Frazier's fury. We're going back to Denzel Washington here. I felt like I did have one straight up, double Dolly shot on this list and it definitely doesn't apply to all of the shots throughout his body of work, but watching black clansmen. And thinking about this list, you recognize that there is often a clash because the shots are cool. On the surface, they make the characters look cool, but we're actually seeing them. It seems to me often at their most vulnerable, the moment when their lives are most disrupted psychologically or emotionally. A lot of times there's just no real volatility. There's almost serenity to the shot that we're seeing as the characters are moving on that Dolly. But the Dalai is. Taking away their agency there on a path to something they can't escape. Black klansman does have this moment where it's finally employed. Good is seemingly prevailed in the movie, and all of a sudden the characters are being ushered into a really unsettling revelation. While inside man features the most volatility, the biggest clash Clive Owen plays Dalton, Russell, the guy who speaking to us in direct address at the beginning of the film and at various points. He decides here to prove that he means business, and he quote unquote kills a hostage with detective Frazier and the NYPD watching up until this point Frazier has been operating under some illusion of control. He thinks he can navigate the scenario that he probably is smarter than this guy on the inside and then everything's gonna work out. Okay. As stymied as he may be, he's mystified by the circumstances and the motives. But I do think he's sure he can handle Dalton and then this action, this one action completely shatters. Illusion and when it's shattered when we cut to that double Dolly shot. Now there is this intensity in this. Volatility Frazier is standing still Denzel Washington. I should say standing still, but we know he's running because of the frenetic style. The movement is so rapid. The cameras actually shaking side to side. The background is chaos. Cops running in mobilising Washington's face stays still. His lips are pursed, but you can just tell that anger is boiling. It's all heightened by everything that's going on around him with the shot, the music. It's the Terence Blanchard score pounds as the shot begins and then rises and it becomes more percussive v- in builds during that Dolly shot, it stops right as the shot ends, and he arrives at the door and confronts Dalton. The whole thing actually lasts only about seven seconds, Josh, but it's so intense and it's so crucial because nothing ever is the same for those characters or the audience. After that, we realized that anything could happen. And I love that there's such power to it. Of course, power in Denzel presents his physical presence on. Frame, but we are watching a character at his most powerless in that moment..

"A callback to famous montage and Lee's do the right thing. The aftermath of nine eleven is of fleeting. Incidental concern to the day in the life of twenty fifth hour. But the tenor of life has shifted unmistakably which is true of New York and of the country even unseen. It's a presence and he lets that presence do all of that work in the scene. It's a five minute take where the camera never moves. Spike Lee recognizes the power of the visual. The power we's viewers will apply to that background, everything that we will read into it and glean from it, and Scott really couldn't articulate a better. The DP of twenty. Fifth hour would Rigo Prieto who shot Brokeback mountain Amores Perros level of Wall Street among other very good films. So I to lists as I was going into preparation for making these less one was the Spike Lee films. I've not seen yet. Yeah, and those were the priority. And here are the ones that I wanted to revisit and twenty-fifth hours at the top of that because I did like it very much what you described liked it quite a bit when it came out. But I know that people have talked about an even grander news in the years since and so I wanna see, you know what I might have missed that first time. I think it was some of that nine eleven stuff is trying to reconcile that with the story at hand and maybe missing some of these other connections that lease making. So some point I will get back to twenty fifth hour. All right. My number three pick Scott reference do the right thing there in his piece and man where there's so many to pick from from that film spike Lee's masterpiece on my list of the top ten films of all time. Maybe I'll save some of the ones I considered for honorable mentions. What I went with was perhaps the film's toughest shot and that is of radio Raheem falling to the ground after being murdered. So we started our black klansman review talking about how through. Spike Lee's career he's been had if not driving the cultural conversation on race. And I think this shot is the best example of that. This comes after the confrontation between Danny yellow sale and Bill nuns. Radio Raheem in the pizzeria that spills out into the streets. Police are called radio Raheem is put in a chokehold by one of the cops, and then held in it long after he's been subdued and killed. Lee finishes this sequence with the camera on the ground. Looking up and radio Rahim's body is dropped, just like a bag of garbage so that his face falls just in front of the lens, this panicked police officer you could see standing over him and then Rahim's hand, which is wearing the love brass knuckles that we saw earlier in the film falls forward toward the lens as well kind of right next to his face. Every time I watch this, it's that composition that's compelling, but I'm also always suddenly shocked by that lifeless nece just the pure lifeless nece that image. Captures the fact that such a big life force, this guy has so suddenly and pointlessly been snuffed out. So obviously, you know, police misconduct against African Americans was being called out before do the right thing. But Lee, you know, he put it on the big screen in a movie that broke through to mainstream America and really maddening leave for shadow the many, many cases. We've seen sense, especially in recent years, do the right thing is a movie that has a lot of joy in it. There's a lot of Loveliness think people forget that it ends on what is really remarkable note of hope and reconciliation considering the context of all the other films and Lee's career. But despite all that I do have to go with this moment of awfulness for the best. Yeah. No, that's a great choice. My number three Spike Lee shot comes from now COMEX and.

"It is time to stop running away from being black. You'll college students right. You should think. It is time for you to understand that you as the growing intellectuals of this country that you must define booty for black people. That's power. Corey Hawkins there as Kwami Teret in a great scene from spike Lee's black clansmen, which we reviewed very favourably earlier in the show talk very favorably about that specific scene and what you can't see from that clip is a great example of what the director himself calls a spike ISM. We know that because we read the New York Times article house Spike Lee created three signature visual shots by Makoto Murphy, a writer and editor for the movies section of the New York Times. Also a friend of the show, and a spike ISM is as spike himself says, a heightened visual flourish. Then they take notice while moving the narrative forward, and they get into a couple other examples as well. That's the faces in the crowd seen the floating down the street, the double Dolly shot that we will probably cover in some detail during this list, his signature shot, his most signature shot. I think you could argue and then a scene from crooked and a use of technique that is not going to make either of our lists where he actually squeezes the frame. He's trying to heighten the sense of this character Troy from Brooklyn, being a fish out of water, leaving bed stuy going to this more affluent place in Virginia to stay with relatives, and he shot the scenes with and Morphing lenses and then ran them in a normal aspect ratio. And it confused the hell out of most people who saw in the theaters at the time, including me on DVD back in film school. Actually when I saw crooked, but it makes the shots look as the article says along gated and odd. People actually complain so much that a lot of theaters had to put a note. I thought something was going wrong with my TV when I watched it for prep for this list, but it absolutely makes sense what's going on in that sequence. So let's dive into some of these spike 'isms. I suppose we could have called this list instead of top-five Spike Lee shots are top five spike 'isms hard to narrow down to just five from such a rich body of work. How did you go about this task? It was incredibly hard. I had to use that construct that we fall back on from time to time where we say, if aliens came to earth. And wanted to basically know what a Spike Lee movie looked like, what images would I show them? So I came away with a collage really. That is by no means comprehensive. We couldn't even get close to it considering all the great stuff he's done, but I'm, I'm pretty happy with it. And I'm going to start at number five with one from very early in his career. It is. She's gotta have it. And the shot is of Mars Blackmon against the Brooklyn Bridge. I knew I wanted a shot that had Lee himself in it. It's not just that he has appeared in many of his films, not quite as much as of late, but it's more that his actual presence is Representative of what I call his directed arrests cinema. In every one of Lee's films, you can feel him talking directly at you. That's why some people described them as preachy and that literally happens when he is there on the screen. So she's got to have it from nineteen Eighty-six features. Probably the most famous character he played Myers Blackman who is one of the three boyfriend. Of the title character. Nola darling. She's played by Tracy, Camilla Johns. We meet Myers in a first person address to the camera where he's given a not very politically correct account of his attraction to Noah. Free, you know, Dickie you ask, why say it looks like the retard. I'm not freight. Thanks. Nolan has a new one to do. Look all been one free. We just been wonderful white. So the shot is tight on Mars face so that his giant black framed glasses, they're, they're even more prominent and he's leaning into the frame towards the camera to emphasize the character's insistence and the moments insistence lease working here with cinematographer, Ernest r Dickerson..

"And I do think that part of the boldness of this movie. I think Matt singer is probably onto something. I can't wait to dive into that because it's more than just revenge though it's an absolute repudiation of its a negation of the birth of a nation. And I think maybe spike does want to have this film, hopefully have the type of long lasting cultural impact. The birth of a nation had for the negative. And that's why we do alternately get the footage we get at the end of this movie, tying it to recent events, and it's completely justified while that's why it's vital to go back to that word. So we should also throw out there that another phrase is given as much time in this film as black power or white power. And that's all powered all the people which is often said by Laura Harrier who plays Patrice. So yeah, that's that's just another element. Spike Lee throws into the pot. All right. So as we're talking about these bravura sequences, I wanna get to one that's kind of the opposite of the black power white power, which is very tense, angry loud. And this comes maybe a little bit. Ironically, during a speech, that at times gets tense, angry, man, and loud. The student union has brought in Kwami Teret played by Corey Hawkins and he's talking about a lot on released. Go Carmichael, Michael. Yes, yes. He's talking about a lot of these issues and how the students should respond. And he goes off at one point to pause in just speak about the physical beauty of African Americans, and he's talking about spatial features specific and all the sudden we've been seen before this shots of the crowd's reaction shots more conventional conventional reaction shots, all the sudden we get these. They're almost portraiture. Yes, shrip- ticks where three faces are against a black background suddenly lit, beautifully lit. And we're hearing Tereza words and seen these faces. These gorgeous portrait's and it's an amazing moment of, you know, so much harsh language so many loud laughs in this movie. But here we get just a gorgeous moment of quiet in it is one of my honorable mentions for top for Sarah shots, and we should probably note the cinematographer who did this with Lee is chase Irvine, it's beautiful. It really is. And like, I think we will get to certainly with our favorites Spike Lee shots. It's one as you indicated that is formerly brilliant and catches your attention, but also is grounded within what we're seeing on screen. It's supports what we're watching unfold and does help fulfill the one of the larger messages of the movie. It isn't just for the sake of the shot itself. As I recall, they're not even still portrait. Sometimes the characters are moving. The cameras moving closer sometimes within. It, it gives it this kind of mystical feel I, it's other worldly in a way because it's not against that backdrop of the stage were really doing something that is completely artificial. It is that construct again and it's a standout sequence in this film voting in a in a metaphysical base. And yeah, I think there's something I think we'll get to some more of that talk again as we get into the top five. I haven't thought this through yet, but I wanna throw it out there and other people maybe can run with it. But we were talking about the use of cinema, the references to cinema or popular culture and imagery here, and this whole idea of liberation and narratives, and the power is in really who controls that narrative. You said earlier, those opening shots have gone with the wind, whatever those quote, unquote, educational videos that Alec Baldwin's character is making. I keep thinking about the shot at one point of Adam driver sitting next to John David, Washington, and if you Google this movie, it's one of the first images that come up there to cops. And they're just kind of sitting on a table next to each other, and they're having actually a very thoughtful conversation where drivers characters pointing out that he really has kind of taken his Jewishness for granted his whole life and what this case is doing to him and the things is making me think about, and it's a shot that makes them look like partners out of TV cop show like there, their visual rubber to that. Shoulder to shoulder. It looks like the seventies Kat moment, and then he even sort of gets and there's direct talk about shaft and representation of black people in popular culture at the time, coffee in Cleopatra Jones..

"It's framed as this conversation between the two guys if somehow that point had been made while someone we'll get into this. So we toured tough Spike Lee shots? Yeah, someone looking at the camera, screaming something at us in a weird bizarre way that would have been more artful in the Spike Lee sense than the scene we get there. But here's an example. How about the way this movie opens, we should talk about that. The first thing we get here? Well, I, we get a scene from gone with the wind. Yes, Amos crane Sean of the confederate soldiers line wounded. So there's an example of using historical footage, right? To provide the sort of context. Then we cut to Alec Baldwin as this out of his mind. It looks like fifties era. He, he maybe it's like a clan recruiter, but he's giving this speech in front of a training video like a super eight million. So it's projected on his face and on the wall behind him. Again, a two to three minutes seen of him just espousing this hateful rhetoric, but the way leash shoots it in his style is that it's edited frequently. We get this extreme color use of color going on and Baldwin's performance. The guy literally chokes on his own words. So that's just another example of what I was talking about. Leeann employing this white voice. Yeah, but undercutting it at the same time and that is in your face. That is diabetic, but it's also electric. It's jarring it's disturbing, and it's funny, and those are the elements that Lee and bring to didacticism that other filmmakers can. Yeah, for sure. That is a case where right from the beginning, you recognize the way he's undercutting that authority visually the stopping and starting of the edits that throat clearing the performance aspect of it. The way Baldwin's character is changing. Line readings for affected just does always make you aware that this is a construct. This is a fabrication, everything about what he is spinning is in fact false and something else I noticed and we'll maybe get into this more as well. He's never shown framed in a position of power. I noticed that right from the very beginning and it's similar with David Duke. There's one exception, but otherwise, every time we see that conversation between stallworth and Duke and we cut between them. He's always shop with these kind of candidate goals. He's never presented in sort of a symmetrical composition where he's right in the middle of the frame as if he is holding any kind of power. So even though he is using so much of that heat speech rhetoric, it is Saverne constantly usual subtle way at times and. Sometimes in a very blatant. Yup. And I think of the scenes of Duke at his desk in this crappy office, the camera well away from him. So you can see his surroundings, he's all alone and he looks like just a sad guy in somebody's basement. Now again, you could say the reality laying and the paneling. Yeah, the the reality is more dangerous than that. Right? And this is, you know, I just want to repeat. This is something that black clansmen makes clear. It's not just here to laugh off the clan because once Ron's investigation goes in earnest, they discover there's actually a terrorist plot at work here. And so real lives are in danger and that all of this doofus snus has you know real world repercussions. So that's something the movie recognizes, and I think really brings home to us in what may be considered another didactic element. And that is the final images of the film, which I don't know we wanna get into now or maybe do a little spoiler talk at the end. Yeah, maybe it doesn't really reveal anything, but there's something powerful. About having it presented to you without having any expectation. I agree. Let's focus a little more on spike when it sounds like we would both say is that his didactic best in this film. Others may take issue with that and it's the way he cross cuts between two ceremonies that are going on this clan initiation rally that you mentioned before, but also this black activist meeting of this black student union group is out of house and they have Harry Belafonte playing a black activists who is recounting some pretty horrific tales from his own past..

"I'm Alec Baldwin and you're listening to, here's the thing now more of my conversation in front of a live audience at the Tribeca film festival with director Spike Lee films, obviously deal with a lot of themes of racial injustices. Fourth and struggle are themes that are in your own films are the in waterfront as well. Yeah, I was on Cooper when this whole thing was Happel capper, Nick and I watch one award war again that a million of time. And the stuff. The cabinet was saying the same stuff that Marlon Brando was saying, I want my rights. And you can see the mob was in it the whole news because we have the shape up. Had the things that guy was given out. And his mother fucker here in the scene to get on the work that guy the store ever has to give you like a coin. In. So after Marlon Brando terrible. Loye testifies against Lee J Cobb friend, Johnny friendly. He says, fuck it. I'm going back to work. So we standing there and they're giving out a coin to everybody, and then there's nobody there and there's some Rummy some bugah. Who's has is over the fire of fire, you wanna work, it put it is. So I'm saying the NFL these motherfuckers high quarterbacks will horrible. So what they did determine why they're doing the capper Nick, they were, I don't wanna say the guy's name. The guy had retired. Chicago Bears quarterback. Go ahead, say his name, he He would. would. How they took him out retirement game, attending dollar contract. He was horrible. Kevin still can't get a job. So it was amazing, but she'll Burke was visionary. And when I saw what they, they're doing the term a lawyer, it was the same thing in if that was doing the cabinet. I think that. A lot of legend and lore about that film, and you know these stories of everybody's heard a million times about. Banda doesn't do the off camera for. And all that crap. All this, which is not that important is the movie about Kazan's mea culpa for ratting un-american. I'm glad what I'd done to you. John friendly. I'm keep on doing it. He says, you know that the no apologies for that. But for me, it's like a brand was someone who was a, did you know, Brandon? Yeah, I met Brenda. One time I was going to do. I was in this wheel of my life where CPO CBS was going to pay people big money to do these. Emo w. m. o. w. we did streetcar on Broadway, which we wind up doing on a TV. No, no, no, no, no on that, but we do. We do streetcar brought it on TV with that was a waste of time, but they paid everybody a lot of money. But like why do it from TV when it's in the movie, his movie. And so I go see him because they want to do cannon ten roof and they wanted to play big daddy, but they're not gonna ensure him long story short as I go to his house as a true story, I go to house up a mo- Holland and I go to beg. Him to do cabinets and roof. If they will ultimately insurance, they wouldn't, and I'll do my my my tepid brand-new impersonation. But I said, I said a.

And I heard you were very funny and I, I wish I had done more of that because it's very funny part, and the character of Stanley has very funny. And I wish I'd found more of the humor myself.

Don't you for our went over for the public and but he hits, I met him just at one time and what you see. He's interesting to me because there's a couple of guys.
