SXSW Will Go On Despite Coronavirus Concerns

"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn every year. A few hundred thousand people gathered in Austin Texas for south by southwest. It's an international festival of music film and Technology but with the threat of the corona virus at hand. Some people are saying that bringing massive crowds into one place could be a very bad idea. Facebook twitter Amazon and a few other tech and media companies. Already have dropped out of the festival which starts on March thirteenth. South by southwest organizers. Say they're nevertheless moving ahead. Dan Sullivan is a writer for Texas monthly and he joins us from Austin Dan. Welcome to the show for having me so before we get into the impact of the corona virus. Let's talk a little bit about just. How big south by South West is in terms of its physical presence in Austin? How much are people's lives affected when the festival comes to town? Well it's huge. It takes over a giant chunk of the city several miles especially the downtown area but also beyond that it does have a huge impact. Let's talk about some health. Concerns from people who live in Austin and online petition calling for a total cancellation of south by southwest. West has more than forty thousand signatures. I've been to south by southwest. It's been a number of years but like any popular gathering. There are a lot of people in a lot of lines it can be getting into a movie can be getting into a club getting into a restaurant. You are very much cheek to jowl with a lot of your fellow festival guests and I guess that's something that a lot of people might be concerned about. It's not just that you're inside venue with a lot of people. But they're massive crowds basically wherever you go on all the streets and a lot of public spaces. Yeah that is a very real part of the concern is that it's just going to put a lot of people in close quarters. The festival did talk today about potentially encouraging people to be further physically apart from each other whether that means capping the capacity at venues or starting a standing in line protocol. I don't know specifically but it's something that seemed to be aware of the head of twitter. Jack Dorsey was scheduled to speak but he's since cancelled. Because of the company's concerns about the corona virus in fact twitter said in a statement that it was cancelling all quote non critical business travel and events unquote. Who else has bowed out so far. We've seen twitter facebook Amazon Amazon Entertainment Amazon studios when out today. Tick Tock went out today. A measurable which usually has a pretty sizeable south by South West presence. Cancel yesterday. There's probably more to. We're talking with Texas monthly writer. Dan Solomon about south by southwest and concerns over the corona virus. I WanNa talk a little bit about the economic impact of south by southwest. Obviously there are a lot of hotels and restaurants that benefit but it seems from your own reporting. There are a lot of smaller businesses. That really rely on south by Southwest Festival didn't happen they'd be in a big amount of trouble. Yeah that's absolutely true. One thing that it's kind of hard to break apart is south by southwest rise with the rise of Austin Austin city of that is rapidly growing population and that growth has coincided with the rise of south by southwest. And so you've seen a lot of people and a lot of businesses that factor south by South West heavily into their business models. So you've got caterers. Who opened up operations because they knew that every march they could pay a third of their monthly bills. Off of one week I talked to all sorts of people who have jobs that you wouldn't think of as a south by southwest thing carpenters and pedicab drivers and people who rent Porta potties. And all of those people really do count on South by southwest as a huge part of their annual income. I think it's also important to note that south by southwest can be an important launching point for musical acts and for movies right now. I think there's about one hundred world premiere films including new movies from Judd Appetito. There's a documentary. About the Beastie Boys New King Arthur movie with Patel. I'm wondering in terms of its impact in the conversation about art and artists. How important would you say south by southwest has become? It's huge. I mean especially. The film festival has been growing every year and people like John. Appetite Tau like if he can't premier his movie at South by southwest any other film festival in the world would be happy to have him but there are a lot of people who get a benefit from small filmmakers independent filmmakers short filmmakers who get a benefit from premiering their phone at the same festival judd appetite out of festival with the prestige of south by southwest. And that would be. It'd be really difficult for people who are counting on that premiere to make connections to launch their careers to lose it as far as musicians. Go The festival itself doesn't pay very well but there are all of these events. Historically that happened around the festival often paid for by companies like Amazon and facebook and twitter. Who Get pretty good paychecks? And you'll see bands who wrote their entire tours around going south by South West so they can play. Fourteen shows in Austin that week including official showcase and without that economy happening it really does have a huge disruptive effect on a lot of Art Creativity. That's at the core of the festival the organizers of MIB TV which was set for later this month in France just cancelled that annual television convention. I'm wondering if you have any idea of what the organizers of south by southwest are trying to wrestle with now what is the balance they're trying to strike? I mean. I think that they do have a real concern. Certainly the city of Austin has a real concern if it makes more sense to have everything under the control of south by southwest which can at least institute hand washing protocols and recommended safe distances and have some authority over the people who who come to town for the festival versus just having sort of a chaos festival because all of those bands who booked their tors to Austin. Most of them are hand to Mouth. Starts Musicians. Who CAN'T AFFORD TO CANCEL? Literally they already took time off of work. They're going to be coming anyway. You know people who aren't traveling on badges people who are just coming to south by South West to have a good time a lot of them are still gonna come so I think that a big part of the concern right now is. Is it more useful for south by South West to continue to have control over what happens in Austin or is it more useful to just say everybody stay home? This isn't a safe place to be. And I think that they're legitimately struggling with that. And I'm sure there are also struggling with some very real financial considerations it will be hard to me bound from cancelling something that they've worked on all year. I think that there's a real resistance to that. Just because this is all they do south by southwest project of another organization. They put on this festival for ten days in March and having to cancel it just days before it's supposed to begin. It's supposed to start a week from Friday. I think that's something that they're just resistant to do. Because they've been working on it for a year then Solomon is a writer for Texas monthly. He joined us from Austin Dan. Thanks so much for coming on the

"You can't have you can't have a bio pic. Unless you have the people who can pull off the subjects who are very important to tell the story. And I have to say, you know, that's one of the things people gonna be talking about how will Steve Coogan and John C Reilly who play STAN and law respectively. How would they pull pull their parts off and up in the moment? I saw the trailer thought. Okay. Steve Coogan got it down. Yeah. At STAN laurel. Steve Coogan is a great impression anyway. But I never questioned him as STAN laurel, man. Lightest like this character because one take it and take as much makeup mayday. Poked his ears out a little bit more. As much makeup, but how much weight he laws? He he's he's amazing it from the Steve Coogan. I'm used to remember first time I saw trailer. It's a long time to recognize that was even him. Really? Yeah. You know, I didn't even I didn't even think about that. Because I, you know, I'm because he became the characters so much to me that I just I was watching STAN laurel. Yeah. I was I was quite impressed even in the subtle moments. The way he talked. He completely embedded in bodied. Stan laurel? Yeah. You know, like I said maybe laws way, maybe they made his ears. Stick out a little bit more. But what's great about Steve Coogan? This is Steve Coogan. He has to play. If anybody knows STAN laurel Oliver hardy, I I'm not saying I grew up with this like, I'm a huge fan on aficionado something. I mean, I did grow. Watching a lot of how rotel Roach is the guy who gave us days like these old shorts like the little rascals and Harold, Lloyd. Yeah. Laurel hardy, I grew up watching these man, and I love the same here. Yeah. When they come on the middle of the day come on cartoons or something kids really got into later. I'm wondering how much audience even knows them because it was like the three stooges who had they had the child audience coming on in the morning. Afternoons and everywhere, but laurel and hardy mostly movies. So that was something that you kind of had to catch on the weekend. Yeah. Yeah. And I remember like Sundays on the middle of the day on Saturday midday movie or something neighbor show, STAN and Oliver Laura hardy short, and so if the million with them are if you're not all of her album hardy was like he was the he was the fat one. You know, he was the one that was he was always getting exasperated mad because STAN laurel was he was he was quiet, and he was almost kinda shy kind of meat, but he was the bumbling. He was always getting them into trouble. That was the phrase another fine mess you've gotten me into. And. Dog. He just looked mentally sometimes lost its world. Well, staring at him like. But you know, what I'm gonna look over here. They. They would get into they would tear up shit. They would cause trouble and STAN low he just being like, I don't even know. Like. Opioid. What's going on with you, man? But but they. So but a lot like a lot of these things go STAN laurel was the one was doing a lot of writing. He was the one is create a lot of material. He was the one that was the business guy behind it..

"This is fresh air. And we're speaking with actor John C Reilly he starts with Steve Coogan in the new film stand in Ali about the comedy duo, laurel and hardy, I wonder if we should play the scene where there's the real confrontation between the two of you Oliver did a film without stand because their contracts didn't expire at the same time with the studio and there was ongoing resentment. Maybe we should listen to that you want to set this up. This is at a reception in England, right? Yeah. So it's funny because you know, in a friendship, sometimes you can see a conflict coming in a friendship, and sometimes it comes at the best of times. Right. Oliver and STAN have just done all this work to get their tour going. The finally get a big show put together in London. They have one of the most successful nights of the entire tour and afterwards this betrayal from the past is brought up in conversation. And it's when standing Ali both realized like, wait a minute. We do have some unfinished business here. And they really let each other have it. In a way that they haven't done before. So let's listen to this. This is Steve Coogan, and our guest John C Reilly in the film, STAN and Ollie. And this is STAN laurel and Oliver hardy, arguing it begins with STAN bringing up the fact that Oliver hardy had done a film without him years before and what and how much it hurt him. Let's listen. I can sleep the days when they told me what you did. And I couldn't sleep when I did it. Still did it. You betrayed me potato French friendship. We have friends because how Roach put us together. And the only reason we stayed together with because the audience wanted I have real fans, and yes, we play golf, and we go to ball games, and we have sauerkraut on how broad west. People will remember our movies long after you finished your hot. You know, something just a lazy ass who got lucky 'cause you bet me lucky. Spend my life with a hollow man who hides behind his typewriter. You're not real. Hollow? Anti. I loved us. You loved laurel and hardy. But you never left me. So what? And that Steve Coogan and our guest John C Reilly from their new film. Stan and Ollie. You know, what striking listening to that? And I'm hearing your voice as we're having this conversation, and I hear the voice of you as Oliver hardy, and boy, you could really hear the transformation. Well, partly partly it's because I'm fighting a cold today. My voice. Probably sounds a lot different than a lot of my performances. But yeah, I appreciate your noticing the transformation there in a way was like every morning when I would have that make a put on because I was wearing Brown contact lenses also in a wig. And like this whole thing was applied to me every day. And as almost like by the end of that process. I didn't have a choice whether to be myself. I was this other person I had a little party for the crew at my house at the end of the shooting and had always kept having all these weird conversations with people on the crew at this party. And Finally, I turn to someone like why is everyone acting kind of like strange with me like, I know he's people been working with them for three months. And finally, the director said, John, you gotta understand most of these people have never seen you outside of the makeup and all that they've never seen him with blue eyes. They've never seen you with that hundred pounds off of you. It's a little weird. The first time after working with you for three months. That was interesting the transformation was like working inside of a mask that that your whole body was in in a way. Well. I want to hear a lighter moment the film where you're on stage. And the two of you sing a song. You wanna just tell us a little bit of this is part of a stage show that you're doing again, you and STAN laurel travelling around England during these shows and half hield theaters, just tell us a little bit about the songs set this up. Well. That's the thing. A lot of the show that we do in the film. They're stage show. There is no film of it. There's no real record other than some scripts and personal accounts of people had seen it. So a lot of that stuff. We had to kind of create from the ground up. And then there are things that we do we lift right out of their movies on the way out west dance is how we begin the film, we do this famous dance that they did. And we did that almost with like a forensic attention to detail because we wanted to get it. Exactly right now. One of the things that we do in the on the stage show. That's also from there from the actual work is is the song lonesome pine which which ironically became a number one hit in the nineteen seventies in England at one point. But anyway, it's it's from that same movie that way are west and once they get into the bar after that famous dance. They start all gets inspired by the singing Cowboys around him. And he begins to sing the song a join in. And then. Stan joins him in harmony. And then all of a sudden standing goes off the rails starts doing this, like very low comedic voice kind of ruining the song and opera gets frustrated and hits him on on the head with with a mallet that he gets from the bartender. So yeah, we recreate that scene on stage. And it was a it was a great little moment to get to show a sign of Oliver that he was very proud of which is his singing voice. He could he was actually at one point aspiring to be a singer. And he had a beautiful high tenor voice. It's a real shame that there aren't more recordings of him outside of their films. But one of the most famous songs that they ever did was was the song lonesome pine. Yes. Listen to it. This is from the film standing Ali, our guest, John C Reilly and Steve Coogan..

"When certainly laurel thinks, they should have done, and it's whether they can never really get this sort of the magic back between them, and I think it's a really really beautiful story in that sense. And also, their wives are fantastic. Here is a period of career. All I didn't know anything about. It was really interesting as you say, it's so touching and is a love story between these two men is incredibly effecting. And I'm not ashamed to say. I was allergic to something towards the end of the film, dusty really wants that was stuff in the cats. I think must have been sitting on something. Yes. Quite possibly now. Really really lucky film into fantastic performances to just just really took me by surprise. Yes. Great. Isn't it? You may have heard me saying the interview with John John Baird that it is interested in the starts off. It is kinda funny to the beginning. You know, you have to get that sense of holy whereas comedic partnership as well, but it is a melancholic film. Ultimately, really lovely wanna really bittersweet. You know, this is not an insult in any way. There's a lovely Sunday afternoon movie. I can really see this appealing to people who are somewhat older or maybe our age which is somewhat older, but people who maybe don't go to the cinema that often I think will be really really chanted by list. And it's it's it's rhythms. Particular rhythms is very race date movie is really really utilize performed and the wives played. My Shirley Henderson Anina. Arianna are fantastic. Lay? Take up the comedy slack off the movie as STAN Ali sort of move into a more serious territory under really really funny little snide snipe at each other lease night, but other people Rufus Jones, who's a brilliant actress, well is very very good as del phone Tuesday sort of one of these. I can't really get a handle these unscrupulous or just incompetent boogeyman. A letter. But there's it's open to interpretation by though, it was really really lovely. Indeed. And I'm really well performed Kuchen. I think deserves the nomination I think Chelsea Riley did as well, but astounded that he didn't get a nomination because they really inhabited those two like, it's it's quite uncanny. It's on it, really. Is it makes you want to go back and watch all of the laurel and hardy films, which by the way dates see a few recently, I was in LA last year. And I went to the Egyptian until sons of the desert which was perfect setting rice and an a few of the shorts and they're just so good. They're still so funny. And I think people should maybe just go and see this and then get into a whole laurel and hardy fix I think that would be ideal. But it's it's one it's just a really lovely film in a really nice look at a slice of cinema history. Indeed, four stars end for STAN only not STAN laurel done Steve Coogan down. Laurel Steve Coogan, I felt like such the anyway. More so than usual, four stars end for STAN and only which brings us neatly on now to Colette, which is a bio pic of the French author Colette, who of course, was possibly moose widely known for her nineteen forty four novella g she was I don't know Helen, she was a French author woman of letters. She was also known as a mime actress journalist, and you will know perhaps more than anyone else that she was nominated for the Nobel prize in literature in nineteen forty eight. Well, done Chris, thanks for that. Yes. This is actually set a little bit before that. I just wanted you to know that I need it. Of course, you did. I never died it for a moment. Here's a clip name clue demon. I should probably diet. Beautiful. Never had one fly off the shows like this before who's by young women. Book will change. Succasunna plan to turn codeine most popular girl in in time. Well. Oh, I believe when he base code eat school days. Yes. I think ahead little something to contribute. Okay. So let's delve deeply into Colette that sounded wrong. I should rephrase up. But I won't I'm going to move on JIMBO do some Delvin. I not only very much into this film. I did a very long Hugh curiosity about this film, which is in the Tempa. Yes. Yeah..

"I wonder where you're going with that was running. I was trying to get an out. No, I was going. He's gonna go. He's going to be held masterpiece going. Yes. Yes. Steve Well, we'll see have. what have. Rubbish money. You're you're you're seeing elevates the movie going to say that if you like, yeah, we're look in union. I don't think I'll be watching the movie because over two hours. There's always a plane, and you can always fast for Europe it and then just get out exactly. Watson. Normally I ask people to doing next. But I know what you're doing next because we received an Email this week from Partridge about his new BBC show, which was fantastic. So very very excited about that. Yeah. Well, we it's funny. You do this work. And you go away do bits of what you do film do TV stuff. And they also have comes to is all banked. Some also emergence ain't buses as you did it. No. Because I was in the guy's going sweet tweaking tweaking tweaking, I I've got to say the Gibbons, Robin. Neil Gibbons are brilliant the obsessive in terms of right to the wire. Tweaking this tweaking that an extra line here. It's very dance. I think it's definitely as funny as the first series of poetry is better than the second series of I'm on a positive. I think mandis it's best moments today today the best moments. I mean, I can't wait food safe because we were it's Rodion it, and it's got some really I the my favorite kind of funny is when you don't know why something's funny. It's just is a few of those moments. We were. Thank you. It's tough because you know, the fans out there like in this always when's your gonna jump the shark. So thing, you know, and I not yet. Sorry to disappoint you still. Great awesome. St cooking. It's been a pleasure, man. Thank you so much. So that was Steve Coogan. And now, let's start off our new and improved cinematic refuse section with Stanton. Ali which is not a by conventional by pick. This focuses specifically on one period in their lives when towards the end of their careers when their star had fallen somewhat in Hollywood, laurel and hardy, Laura, of course, being British came to Britain for a tour of theaters, and it didn't go so well, and actually at least here's a clip and fight to get you up to speed. For the empty last night. I guess people. Just don't want to see law hard anymore. Shing yield to me. Have said goodbye all over a long time ago. We had a good thing going. You had this big chip on your shoulder because I did a picture with someone else. I sleep the days when they told me what you did just lazy ass got nut because you met me lucky spend my life with the man, we'll hides behind his typewriter. You betrayed me. Friendship. You like that that was a clip an actual clip. I loved it. But that's now talk about STAN and Ollie, which is a film. I literally keep calling STAN laurel I can't stop myself. And I don't know why. But I thought this is fantastic film. Hell's bells? Yeah. Absolutely love to. I think they're both brilliant as the characters and they're really really good at doing the performances first of all. So there is an element of this film, where they to, you know, Lauren hardy numbers, and those are great and a half to have to get why people adored these people you have to get why they were the biggest stars in the world at one point. And they sell that stuff. But then they also are great the behind the scenes stuff and the complete almost one eighties. These characters took behind the scenes because laurel is the more sort of intellectual driven ambitious focused one despite playing the idiots or the more Ideo sake, onscreen and hardy is very easy going very big hearted. Very light back. You know? Just content to kind of let things ride let things happen und- often get himself into disastrous scrapes as a result. And it's a it's an incredibly effective contrast of the two personalities and the way they worked together is is gorgeous. Because ultimately, this is I think a film of their friendship. It's been through some tough times their careers, basically fell apart because they didn't stick together at a moment..

And you didn't know the reverse he sort of was very apologetic. But of course, delighted. Now, it's a him. So congratulations to the performance. It's a fantastic performance. And it would have been easy. I guess to just mimic STAN laurel, you are natural born mimic. We was in plenty of evidence that over the years, but you bring an inner life to him as well. Well, thank you. That's the that's the key thing. You know, mimicry something is a wonderful thing. But it's just a it's a skill. It's a it's a skill. And it's is not an end in itself is a good tool to have in your bag is where you start funny enough. Yes, sometimes it is not really supposed to say as Nazis Priscilla you start with do research. And you if you're playing for you, it's going to live like a Trump five weeks, if you're doing this kind of film would've end yet to so stop in the inside outs..

"Of course. No, it's going to be terrible. Hang on hang on. It's always Christmas Eve on these parts, James. So therefore, yes, we hope we hope it will fulfill the promise that we know Philip Roma's because there wasn't one. We hope that it will be some promise with tiny flickers of promise. It's going to mica in stone on JIMBO and I saw today, we weren't unentertaining. That's true. Much liking gladiator. We were entertained. We went in rock bottom. Yeah. Yeah. And you know, not board at any point. I did enjoy myself. Was it good? Absolutely. Not. Entertaining. What was going on through half of it? But I mean, we have known there to be sequels that significantly improved on the original. It can happen. It's the thing that exists you hope that in Bolton buy the confidence of the reaction to the first movie commercially at least if not critically that they'll go, and they'll cut loose with this one. But you also hope that they don't kind of trivial little bit and they go. Well, we obviously did. So well, the first time that we don't have to fix anything. It ain't broke don't fix it. Well, no guys is broke. So you have to fix it. But anyway, Heyhoe fem too. Two separate of dune. June. First came thrones. I which is he gonna go. It's going to be a both June. So June has announced to tombs of house hawk own which I'm very close about Stellan Skarsgard will play the baron Vladimir hawk Onen and everybody's favorite Jackson destroy day. Pow Teesta will play the beast rub on apparent how Conan son. Yes. Excited about this. Film was Denise Ville nerves adaptation of one of my favorite books. Records overseas in this. As Jessica Timothy shallow mayors paying Paul atredes. Off the. His Leo yet. Now Lito, no. Aleve. So and and as has already been discussed many times, I will be there when it shoots in the sand on a sand worm taking notes a William. Yes. Okay. That's interesting. Dressed essentially as pull the treaties at the golden girl still suit. Nobody has this weird kind of harness thing, which, you know, Louis tone calls a babe, but it's clearly a harness. Staying bit still Sudi to me. I'm excited about this very very exhausted. If he gets ROY, and there's no reason to think that the will will not this this. This could be I want to pick up. I just wasn't as big a fan of Bladerunner is you'll aware, you know. Oh, you know. I wasn't a big bore fest. Twenty four nine more like snooze Villarosa see gonna try and fit any percentage of the June plot into a film, you're going to have to be kept pretty busy. So hopefully, he'll keep this one moving because there's a lot to happen and space bottles, and you know, all right? Cool. Good. The other thing most hell's bells again, thrones news or game of thrones prequels news. We've had some casting nonstop for that one. Which is I think I think it's fair to say quite promising Naimi Aki, Jamie Campbell Bower. George Henny Henley. Sorry joined the Newcastle. Notorious JCB disoriented JC is that what we're going with. What did you call him? Because he was he was like he was like a way hall throws. Didn't didn't go JCP? They make like steamroll listen shattner. Yes, digger. So this is being directed on. I think show run by s j Clarkson whose Aparna touch the new Star Trek movie if and when that ever happens S JC, which isn't itself pretty exciting. Because this is the one this is one that Jane Goldman row is well, I think so there's women behind the scenes which there haven't been on game of thrones since season four. So that's kind of exciting. It's a good cast. It's a little bit less white than the game. Thrones care cast which walkers. Yeah. Yes, true. But this isn't Walker is it. So this one's the speculation at the moment is that this may be takes the summarize and goes places that we haven't seen done to death already game. Thrones. That said they're still going to be based in Belfast or they're still going to be. Some bits of the north. I think in some gals thrones. Yeah. But this is a prequel. This is set fuzzy thousand years before the era that we've seen so there will be no overlapping characters we are shared..

And then the next week the Kim through isn't at all there's a script Kim through laurel and hardy for you. I have I don't think it's your thing. Yeah. We'll let me read anyway. And I read it in a loved it. And I thought well why? Done a movie these guys before. Yeah. What was the first thing? I thought it was a TV script beginning we were going to do a TV movie. And then one of the big of change it with John John Riley came on board the script really took a big jump because Jordan agree ideas in terms of making it more just about the two guys. And Landon information through them rather than preferable characters support. And does which fell a exposition all the wasn't a much of the waves. And the fuss versions of the more. We the more we did the more drafts. We did the more included ways in the more. We felt that the whole peace improved. Yeah. Right. Because the funny the girls. Yeah. Arguably they get more laughs than the boys. Do Stephen Jones where they're motion heart is in the foam. And obviously it recreate the laurel and hardy moments, but the actual bagel off come from come from Rufus who plays del phone as well. Will especially the girls with a younger audience. Anyway, the seems to be the girls who get the big laughs. Yeah. So it was Riley really kind of Leslie the galvanizing factor. Well, I just think that when joined him on board. He he he he stepped back and looked at it from a different different point of view. And he came up with some ideas that really made me, and Jeff thank you know, he's a very clever guy. John. And Steve was great with the script Israel. Steve Steve rewrote, the chunkier dialogue scenes, you know. So the both had a low of importance clipped meta them, but we didn't do any improvisisation because I don't like I don't like ought style. I like to do all the stuff Andhra hassles. We had four rinks because look really offend thick of the recreation, especially so all the all the ideas, and especially the ghettos, actually, the the stuff that was on a page. They completely elevated a Nina, and Shirley would come to me and say look been thinking about this in Hobart do this in Hobart, we do this and this should take law credit for oh, you're the spike in they have to work each other. Also, the spiking that that Nina who eat up stones wife who what she has towards the to promote Adele phone. Yeah. A law. Yeah. A lot a lot. She came up with a ruin, you know, so they have to be given credit those girls, so Johnny Riley, who by the way, I feel should have been on that as well to be honest. Yes. The how you feel about that? But you know, what I think is is the consulate each of that. Oh, sometimes, you know. And I think who knows if there'd been a six nomination, John because Steve was there, maybe the splitting the voice, you know. It was the same Coogan for the Golden Globes felt they been great if he go on there. But. I suppose that's the that's the double edged sword. You know, when you've got two very strong leads. How do you separate them? Am an Arpey vote for both them or just for one. Who knows? Yeah. His kind of bows. And they're really funny because the way that they're so good minutes. No. Yeah. The wind each other up about not being nominated for for, you know, for an he's as you have and stuff. So the very funny when it comes to when it comes to that, you know, of course, both of them were shamefully overlooked for the work and Holmes and Watson. So oh. I don't even know me taught. Yeah. I have laid you artfully into let's just say, I haven't seen the film. I just leave it there. Delight you'll catch it on a plane when these days it'll be good how good they share.

That's why that's why when I said to him, you know, I didn't say taxi driver raging like I said king comedy because genuinely love. Film. But I knew that he thinks it's one of his best works that was completely under volume an under appreciated that should say. And I think it was a a genius. And we're we're we're head of its time.

If you if you have a mutual even if it's very distant like a mutual connection to avoid being labeled a stock on trying something. And scorsese. There's a connection isn't a rural.

He he always says combing Mari by to start having a graduated to that point where feel comfortable doing it. You know, I I call a Mr. Scorsese so much respect. But meeting your friends a at school? You know, just net is always misses MRs Jones ever. Yeah. You just but I didn't watch any films. What he did is he offered to give me his personal Honda cronk. Come right from the nineteen twenties to us and the film. Yeah. Unfortunately, we couldn't use it because we were shooting a scene from the nineteen thirties, and it would have been not count comrade of being so vote at by point that would have been using so more more than things. But he he definitely advisement stuff. Late lens choices. On the film seen the film opens up along truck and short yet. And I I asked his advice on that, obviously..

"Finally, buying on the podcast is week. Here's another nice massive gotten ourselves into as we talk. Stan. And only withstand not only Steve Coogan. That's office thing making this the. The physical stuff and the stuff, and it's trying to get under the skin and bring them to life. Plus, we drop named shamelessly with my good friend Elton, John sorry, John s Baird. The director of that same film, a massive named on his you vote to find all that are more on the movie podcast that as all slick and polished now, it has its very own producer, sir heliport. I'm Chris you and welcome to the podcast this week. We are joined by two colleagues of such lethal cunning as geeky n- Helen O'Hara very excited. She's just go off to Thailand. I am. It's say why I can't say why. But it's really stressful because I have to get a visa after gadfly, and it's all. Spit last minute is what I'm saying. James Dyer is also here, which is nice. I guess can I have an honorific, please. No, I feel like Helen's been the geek Queen now since two thousand twelve and I'm just some twat comes in the podcast. I think I need. I need a toy. Entity. Just some twenty comes in. And does the podcast and does the podcast down, quite frankly? I can get Queen written my diary, it's full. I actually have some. We should introduce our new producer who's going to make this podcast sound slick from now on Jane long, welcome to the podcast. Well, what plans do you have? Reijo basically three are outs. In. It's a big takeover. Should we have a question? Sure. That's a question. The question comes from Email and comes from Mike days Lii, and he asks on Jack White's latest tour he required everyone to put their phone in a younger pouch, which locks it in and can only be unlocked by touching it against an unlocking station in the entrance area. Would you support this as ninety cinemas after sitting behind someone who was checking her football bet every ten minutes, I will be one hundred percent behind it? Nice Mike daily so press screenings is very common for for them to come get your phone. And indeed everything before you go in. Lest you part the film and remember once going to them where they had these sort of foam penalty things you had to seal your phone away. And then you had to come out, and yeah, no, no, no, this is Silva bags will you tear the moten, which frankly very easy to do. But the ones that was probably seal by machine and you had to go back to the machine at the end. And then they unsealed voice. You literally couldn't get your fun. I preferred that to being vested of my phone and having to hide it in my pants, which really nobody. Needs. Never really never. I will. I think cinema etiquette. Is that you should put your phone off? Not just on silent. Even if you're using it silently the light is distracting, you should not use your phone in cinemas, the basic rule here record the film. Well, as your lawyer, Chris I would say that you shouldn't record the film at all. Then how do I enjoy it later on like at home? And I wanna watch the film again. I just think that was great. So I just wanna watch it again. So I just wanted to my phone. One other Sharon, the in the bounty, the marvel bounty just cheaply uploaded to YouTube. Well, first of all I'd say as your lawyer that Nestle make bounty not marvel and second of all that none of that happened in a never will happen. We'd like to make extremely clear to Mr. and MRs lawyer from Disney. Thanks very much. Please don't kill us. Do we need these pouches? See my problem is I do have some sympathy with let's say somebody who's on call for long periods of time and still wants to see a film, and is considered about it. So feels very low buzzing and goes out of the room to check what's up. You know, I have some sympathy without I have some sympathy with parents who have a babysitter he might in extremist need to get hold of them. So I would be a little bit wary of this this particular just because of that did you know that Stephen King found out the Joe hill was going to lie about with Joe hill while he was at a cinema because it was back in, you know, however long ago, it was a long time ago..

And do you. So do you you you do like doing that kind of stuff where you're really like even the political comedy with with anything? Which is you know, I like I done a lot of comedy that which is a edgy and like doing stuff, which is I mean long haughty decided standing all as it's called is quite as sort of a gentle. There was the trip to that. I mean that was kind of relationship to it is it is similar in ways that so. Yeah. The trip about sits lays guys trying to figure out life. Yeah. Like that. But I think I don't want is thing when you're younger. It's like I got more to prove I want to be the comedy. I did was sort of more acerbic Vaughn cynical. But it's like I like where it's kind of giving the finger to the establishment. And then when you if you're over forty and you're giving people the finger.

"Yeah. However imperfect that that way through is there's never going to be a gold at the end of the rainbow. Right. But the Zo there's a kind of a way through by people accommodating those. I mean, you know, that you can do that to an extent. I mean, if someone says I want to kill or or wipeout a whole race of people. That's pretty there's no kind of there's no compromise on that. So that's that's when you know, the chips are down you have to you have to just stand up against that throat.

But emotionally, they're connected show. Whether it's no bore not. Yeah. They. They get along on a level. That's not necessarily explainable.

But and however mad all of a haughty gets at the end of it. He still goes come on. You know, it's it's like if you combat his buddy, but he never abandons his. It is a surrender to. Yeah. Another thing. The movie shows if you don't remember it, or is that they despite the fact that they were how Roach players they may not have known each other before and that outfit. You know, the bowler hats were something that was established by chaplain or whatever was that. They are totally unique in their presentation and in their act, there's nobody like them. No, the the no. And they they were put together they were like the kind of the monkeys of. Right. Hop world. Like, we were talking about before your parents records that there was a lot going on culturally that was popular in comedy. And they were and how road wanted to the Manco you said some great songs couple. Yeah. Yeah. So you know, we they discovered these characters they created these currencies interest in the Chaplin and STAN laurel came over from England on the boat together.

With the mustache in the Bolton on the stick the walking stay at United Artists or like before before that when to doing this stuff live, okay for like, so, but it's a Stilo all the holiday, you know, did that stuff together? Download all the what behind the scenes, so when you talked to Dick Van Dyke, you know, Dick Van Dyke. Okay. Yeah. Go ahead. This this is okay. You tell you know, he just tells a story about when he got that Hollywood. And how much you love. Laurel? And then he just looked him up in the fence. Right. And he called him. I have relationship with. No, that's what would be the. Well. I was going to go on and say is the the research that I did on STAN laurel was because he was in the phone book Dick Van Dyke famous called him. But a bunch of other people just phoned up stand on recorded the conversations down the phone, really. Yeah. On tape recorders. And so there was a bunch of recordings of sound phone that I listen to Donald just talking about long. He would talk to anyone who rang up. He would give them the I think if he says to Van Dyke, I think he said does your mother know you calling. Yeah. It's coal. And you know, it's going to be custom all the money. Yeah. So so this was in the late. Fifties. Sixties stand died in sixty five. Yeah. And but those those those phone calls a real I opened to not only the rhythms of his speech. But how you used to think?

"And it's such an me because this is a. A desperate time in their careers where they they wound up broke because of bad production deals. You're sort of forced to tour is a live act in Europe, and they were already past their prime and just the conversations in the reality of being on the road. And then having a partnership, and it's a real, it's it's a beautiful movie about a friendship, and and it's also a love story in a way, not a platonic love story. But but the way that they just inhabited. These men was really stunning and it was shot stunning. And and it was just a shop beautifully. And I found it to be very touching very moving. And they do they both did Oscar worthy performances. So I just highly recommend the film, and I'll talk to Steve about it in about other things because the film does open. What's now, it's playing now in New York and California, but it opens across the the world in the country on Friday January eighteenth, it's called standing Ali. And this is me talking to Steve Coogan. So wait. So that's the cottages. Humane house. No, it's just a house next to my main house just outside Brighton. I know nothing about writing is that nice. It's world Mods and the rockers had fights on the beach in the nineteen sixties ever seen footage. So it's a beach house. It was no it's kind of back from the beach. It's like a little cottage. We have lots of old old building those old buildings. Yeah. Have they re his like renovated is there. Like, yeah. I mean did is the area been as neutral fight or it's no Brighton is always Brighton used to be the place for people that go for C weekends in the nineteenth century. Oh, okay. I don't like I've no sense of England. And every time I have somebody in here from England. I seem to need a history of England as well. It's been going. The thing about American history is it's like two hundred and fifty old stuff. It's everybody knows it like back to front, and is it goes over and over and over again. Yeah. But ours is a little longer, and it gets muddier and muddier the. Are the back you go everyone. Nobody knows all of it. They just know little bits here. And right, right. And you can always be always be surprised when somebody tells you something about a king or or piece of property how I didn't know that here. Everyone's like so steeped in the in American history, if they don't know part of it they gotta like rap on the knuckles. Oh, I wish I wish people were as educated as you're you're giving them credit for it. Seems that here. The history gets a race daily. A rewritten. Yeah. Yeah. Completely. So when so you grew up where where what part I grew up in Manchester and the north. Oh, yeah. So so that's industrial. It was industrial electric. It's like a kind of a compound much Chicago. Yeah. Let's of Irish diaspora people, I'm half Irish. So like, oh, so one of your folks is full Irish my mom grew up in Ireland during the war. She was sent back that she was she born in England. But I'm mom and dad will like what I call bog Irish. Yes. Supapol irish. Yeah. And everybody left island those work facing the country was dying. Yeah. Yeah. It was only in the population. Since the famine island was going down the nineteen eighties. There's only like eight million people there now. Yeah. I mean, it's crazy. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. The whole country. It was shrinking and then it went back up. Anyway. My my mum's parents came over to England in nineteen thirties, and she was born. And then they sent it back during the war. So so, yeah, I'm on my dad's side for the back is I wish so I always. So even though I grew up in the north. Yeah. There's a bunch of Irish Catholic diaspora kind of ghettoized area of Irish Catholics right next to the Jewish area in Manchester in north Manchester. Chicago. I compare it to Chicago duster town.

"T F do that. Will you do it? All right. So I had to watch a bunch of movies because an interview I'm working on some of these movies where the difficult movies in in. I am not I'm not a closed minded person. And it's interesting to to not be a closed minded person. You know, because when you're not close minded when you're open minded, you may have resistance to things. But you know, the thing is if you let things in because you're open minded, and you're curious, and you're interested, and you you reserve judgment. Until you process, it, you know, you live a fuller, emotional, intellectual is spiritual life, I believe because you take a lot of things in and you can sort of compare things and feel things different things and decide you know, who you are in relation to them. And what's what's good for you? And what's not good for you? And how do you accept other people? And you know, like, what are things that are difficult, and I just think that being open minded is a stronger position. But it is interesting that that with that comes a certain amount of insecurity in the sense that. I guess the example is like I was watching some early films by your does Latham owes. And yeah, I probably should talk about this. When I give you the interview, but it's on my mind, and it does we somewhere else where I'm watching some of his films. I'm watching an early one. And I do not understand it. I don't know what the fuck is happening. I do not I know that there is intent in it that that there was designed to it. But it's not making sense to me, and it's provocative, but it's disturbing and it's not it's not forming a story. And I mean, I'm getting frustrated, and it's taking me days to get through a movie. And you know, I'm just, but I'm opening I want to understand, and I want to I want to know what what is trying to be communicated to me, or what the effect is supposed to be an I'm over thinking it, obviously. But the the thing I noticed about myself is that if I don't understand the movie or for something is too challenging creatively. Like, if it's an art film. And I'm not getting it I rarely if ever blame the movie. I always think like what why don't I fucking get this? What is what is wrong with me? And I sometimes it's just it's just supposed to go in. Sometimes art is just supposed to go in and roll around in your brain a little bit may not make any sense whatsoever. But you never know what it's going to start in your brain. You never know what it's going to tumble trigger or or morph into were how it's going to pop back at your and how it's going to resonate or how it changes the way you see things. And you gotta let that happen is not going to hurt you, especially if you don't get it, and it's not expecting anything from you. But my point is I always think that I'm the idiot. You know, you watch a movie you're like fuck what was that? I'm a fucking idiot. And then I realized well, maybe that's what art supposed to do. Maybe you're supposed to walk way. Going like, I'm a fucking moron. And then think about it for the next few years and on and off for the next decade after that and one day, you'll be like, oh, that's just like that thing in that movie. I didn't get the movie, but now like. Now, I'm looking at life a little differently, but it took ten years. So keep an open mind..

"All right weds do this. How are you? What the fuckers what the fuck buddies? What the fuck Knicks. What's happening? How are you? Marc Maron here. You back at work. How's it going? I know right, right. You get relaxed. You get sort of into a different time sense. You get into a different groove e kind of get grounded in who you are and your identity in the world. And now, you're back. You're back at work making the adjustment. Check in the mount of emails everything. All right. You're gonna you're gonna be okay today to saying in there. You know, I guess this is life. We're all pretty excited. Right. Y'all got pretty excited. And now, we're what seven days into it. And I don't know why we fool ourselves every year. Maybe maybe it's just the ritual. Maybe we actually know in our hearts that. Yeah. It might be a little better. It might be a sign post of some kind. But really just another day. And now we're week into it. And we're back we're back at it. Maybe took that time to think about what would it be like if I didn't have to work. I think about that all the time, I'm constantly working. And I don't know how to really not work because I don't know about you. But I get about a ten days away. And then it's just a existential world pool of possibilities. None of them. Good. But welcome back. Welcome back to work, folks. What's have added today? Steve Coogan is on the show. Great gas, great guy and great movies in actually standing Ali with Steve playing STAN laurel and John C Reilly playing over hardy. I loved it. I fucking love that movie. I will recommend that. I recommend that movie. I I will. I am recommending the movie standing Ali got thought talking about it before I bring him on. I certainly we'll talk about it with with Steve. But I just. Thought it was beautiful little film really well acted and just beautifully shot. And I don't know man may I maybe I'm getting soft. I don't know. I just found it very touching. Maybe as a performer as somebody in the business, marginally I found STAN and Ollie to be a tremendous movie. Look, folks, we all put off doing things we know we need to do. Right. Like, what have I been putting off I need to get some rugs? For upstairs, I need to fix the light. And the upstairs bathroom, it'd be nice. If there was something on the wall in my bedroom. I could go on. I'm sure you could too because something always gets in the way of things we need to get done funny. How home security can be like that. You know? It's a good idea. But there's always something holding you back. Well, simply safe believes nothing should come between you and protecting your home. So they've gotten rid of the reasons not to get home security, for instance, there's no contract ever, no price markups for..
