Club who's extremely good water pressure showers once enjoyed as a young recent graduate New York. I've never felt water. Pressure like the water pressure in the showers by the squash court pressure. You felt that the the the water pressure Yell Club but based based on what I know about all of these clubs. They're not bursting at the seams with with members. They are like elite clubs everywhere. They've had to loosen the membership requirements. A little bit to get member. Pursuade Yell at the Oakland for example there now much less rigorous about when you have to wear a jacket to eat in the grill room and I believe they even combined with like Dartmouth Club in l.. Look not the don was called Chevrolet so these clubs were inviting other clubs with other other pedigrees. Shall we say to merge with them and use their spaces and so you now might encounter people at the club who do not themselves have yellow. Diplomas I I don't know if that's what's happened at Harvard smelling salts outrage so my question is did Vanessa with one s Levin even attend and Harvard and Radcliffe colleges or was she an interloper whose money they were taking but whom they were happy to be rid of not interested in the opinions communists. I have researched the actual rules for Harvard Club members show but rather get the angry mail from Harvard. Alumnus about this story is like hits a perfect sweet spot for me. It's like everything that I find stupid about America a about a particular subsection of life versatile really why are are you going to events with titles like the hundred year war. I'm like there's so much shit on Netflix Israeli grade book. I know they're nice people out there. Don't don't go to an advantage advantage to ask like an outrageous question number one number two really like the Harvard Club. I gotTa tell you though it. That's what the Harvard and Yale Clubs. Is there right near Grand Central Station and again the Yale Club. The water pressure showers Leo. It would flay the skin off your back. It would change everything would change. You've ruined every other shower. Ever only going to be a part of his Kish disclosed Vanessa. Levin should have been on the upper west side twenty years ago living the beautiful pre-nine Eleven sprightly love infused existence assistance of Ed Norton Ben Stiller Gentleman in the movie keeping the faith. Now you'll remember a few weeks ago you and Steffi night we agreed we were going to have a film called. We're going to watch this movie. which is one one of the great Jewish movies of all time It's the story of two friends. Rabbi and a priest Ben Stiller Edward Norton who reconnect with an old friend from childhood with. WHO's growing up into this? Great beauty played by Jan Elf men and love triangular hijinks ensue revisiting. This movie Lille Bentzion Shlomo Yoshua o'malley Liebowitz Liebowitz. What did you think it broke my heart? I was so profoundly sad. I arrived at the city shortly before the events depicted in in this year. Movie take place and I. I really couldn't help thinking how it captures a reality. That is completely alien to the way we live today. People call each other on the phone then they have meetings in person if something goes wrong and you want to talk about it in life. You don't tweet about it. You actually go to a friend's apartment and and you sit there and you have all these lovely late night. Confessions no-one intended the upper west side is robust. There are no stores that are shuttered because the Internet There's no kind of you know existential. Fear and dread that seeped into the city after nine eleven it is just a testament to to hope to humanity to connection to the possibility of faith to transform lives. It seems like a document from another century and in a sense it really is at the fact that one of the running gags is how they mocked Elf men because he carries a little cellphone around like that was the moment when cell phones. Were first becoming a thing and I remember getting my first one thinking you know and I I think I told myself it was a financial decision it was cheaper than having a landline. And I I was doing some traveling for my graduate school work and it was GonNa let me keep in touched on the road and even remember the last phone number. I ever learned because once you get cellphone records you know what's the point of it was John Pitt. partner at Williams and Connolly former roommate of mine. I don't know his phone number now. I guess I guess some years later I learned my wife's phone number and then my daughters and that's it and it really was a time where yes. The whole premise of the movie is they all live near each other on the upper west side and therefore can get together to fight out all of these Dramas that their lives are playing out and they have to do it. They have to cry at each other's shoulder and they have to. When when Edward Norton gets upset by the turn things are taking he goes to a bar even the fact that like? He's drunk in the bar crying to the bartender. Looks like such an anachronism such an actress. The person who made this movie. This really is one of the greatest films of the last thirty forty years. The person made this movie. I think thought he was making religious movie inasmuch as it was about these. You know this relationship between the Rabbi and the priest I think what actually we ended up taking from it vis-a-vis vis-a-vis religion twenty years. Later is the fact that for spirit to survive at all. You need precisely that you need to be able to sit at the bar and talk to. The bartender need to sit on the couch with your friend and cry for hours. You need all these things that life post Internet simply makes if not impossible the really really unlikely and really like I felt post human watching this meeting realizing how much was lost in the last years made me deeply depressed and I don't think I'm just being kind out of like you know. Middle aged man hotdogs cost a quarter. It really felt like a teaching. It's terrific movie and it was. It was a terrific movie Middle aged man right. I completely agree with you and but when I talked to my college students or when I talked to my kids about it they they don't disagree they they watch a movie like this and they know exactly exactly what I'm talking about and which is why in fact. I'm meeting increasing numbers of undergraduates. Who I work with? Who are off social media? I mean they have their phones but they're trying to reclaim claim something of that analog existence and finally say it takes religion seriously. It's not reverend but it's serious and I think that's really cool. I would love to get Stuart Blumberg. Who wrote this movie on the show?

"Is the moment rank album and thanks for listening. This is well this long time. Coming in a super treat to have A guy in here that I've been friends with for over twenty years and who was so instrumental in me having a career to begin with and be able to do this for a living. Edward Norton Writer Director Producer Actor and incredibly loyal and good friend Edward. Thanks for being here you you got me choked up right just when you were saying writer director. Ask the chick again. I even as you were saying that I was always set me up. No no it does choke me up. I can't believe you last night when you said twenty two years I was. It's like that. How is that possible? You're not even one of my college friends. I know it's crazy. We're we're all dude go. I mean I just showed when you told me your son. Sam Is writing a book with Neal. You'll I was like I am fucking passed it to rounders when he was like you said Eh he was two years old. Here's here's where I want to start so Edwards. New Movie motherless Brooklyn is out and it is a must see movie if you're the kind of person you're listening to this podcast and you are. You need to go see this movie in a theater as it's meant to be seen but I WANNA start And I was David our around and watched Edward Work on it from the beginning. As a as a writer and watching your commitment and determination and relentlessness was inspiring Edward trying to understand last night. What do you think the actual number of years since from when you read it to it actually being released its twenty exactly because I read it in the fall of ninety nine when it came right before it came out I read it and I got it in? GALLEYS A friend I was at a party in the village and a woman. I knew who knew Jonathan. Actually I believe Stuart Blumberg my partner who you know well writer director. He he was dating someone who was friends with Jonathan and tip me off that That that he knew about it and and I got in galleys. So I I was GONNA say years. Twenty years. And Edward went on Our mutual friend embarrasses podcast. And they're really really told the story in a granular gray. We'll get to some of it. But I encourage you to listen to that pod because I want to try to give a little more context of certain things and one is i. Have I have to talk about how we first met. Because I'm really interested in the person you were then and and how much of this this this life you've been able to build. You saw it so when David I wrote rounders and we were Matt was in was cast and we were just about cast. We had this crazy idea Ted Ramey said to us if you could have anybody want they were gonNA maybe cast somebody who's worm who didn't have really credits that mattered to any of us in Teddy one day one. What are we doing? Who who would you guys want? If you have anybody in David and I both said Edward Norton us down on a stone. Three you've done. Three movies had come out and you were smart. You know we can tell you smart and it it is interesting though because primal fear I was in Italy for the Rome Film Festival. We this movie. We opened the film festival. And they did a little career retro. They did a little conversation with and they showed a bunch of clips and I saw clips from primal fear and everyone says I love you also radio but you know what's really wild is. I made a joke about it on stage like I was like I'd never I didn't even change my haircut. I didn't even change my haircut through primal fear. Everyone says I love you when Larry Flint. Maybe on Larry Flint. I combed it the other direction and I had these little fake sideburns in but it is astonishing to me that no one including me thought to say maybe you should change. Adrian was the look in your eye on the front. It was look in your eyes on the front steps of the Supreme Court. When after? When you've won the case you come out there and emory there is this mischievous intelligence at play and your it was clear? You're thinking in our member putting David. I'm putting all three of those things together and saying saying well we have these incredible cast but this is the the amazing thing so they they fly. I have to ask you because this is the moment. I'm I'm fascinated by that because in primal fear basically doing like a you know kind of stuttering Innocent right right then. There's this flip into this like thing and I guess I guess 'cause I'm trying to think what would make you associate any of it with worm because woody woody Allen thing is completely like goofball light the Larry Flint thing. Yeah it's intelligent but it's very square very straight right and worm is the farthest or this thing from square. He's you know Johnny Boy Right. So but what Roberts in French village David me really but he. Dan Bugs Bunny. Yeah Yeah but but I I am curious what you what was it was their stuff in the primal. I'm wolf fear in the in the turn guy in the way. He's sort of needling Richard. Because it because there's not a lot well it's probably hard for you to see the your own charisma like the charisma's one of the hardest things to see right but worm had to somehow be able to keep you the problem with Eric Roberts's character and pope and you're right. Johnny Boys Bez. Eric Roberts from the moment you start you just want Mickey to get rid of them right. Worm had to be endearing endearing so you had to be able to roll with him and understand why Mike was rolling with him until he couldn't am any longer. These guys is poker. Players are very smart so it was really important to us. That even if worm as Didn't do things the way might did that. You understood it and and and it was also like we were just trying to put together an all star team right. We had two zero. We had Malkovich and it was like you know Maddie and so the idea of well. WHO's going to stand in in there and really feel like okay? We have a chance to make diner. 'cause you know David. Our biggest inspiration was diner where these groups and and I do remember seeing Larry Flint and and and both of us saying well. That guy can handle that kind of dialogue. That's the Edward Right. Those were two of those not primal fear but the other two. You had big bursts of dialogue. That were had rhythm musicality to them and you had to be able to deliver that shit to play worm and you were able to get liver that Shit Shit but so they tell us everyone says. Oh Edward Norton Never GonNa do these two biggest star and Ted Demme's it. I was not in any way shape or form like a big star like I literally had done three movies in supporting parts but this was supporting heart and they were positioning you to be leading. Act Time Right. I'm talking about the business people I think. And then we get word that you are that you liked the script and wanted to meet just to know that it wasn't all bullshit or something they had said to us and John. The director trusted David Mehan instead of John. Coming going to meet you because he was he was like Bryan. and Dave. Do you guys want to get into Plane Norton so which was super cool of him to do as a director Detroit. Yes it has nothing and it's kind of a Montana Laconic. It's a very clint eastwood move. Actually it's it's it's sort of like you know I care but not that much that's like and maybe you know it sort sort of like it'll be what it'll be coached us up but then there's the part that I wanNA talk so we get to cal l a text you or call you and you said come over to my the house. We're going to take you to a poker casino. We're going to be you and you should come to my house and you gotta remember as I'm sure you remember everything on your first movie. I remember every detail of everything that happened on that film. And we let us in your house and very warm and welcoming. Oh you immediately said I'm working on. Something is the first thing you did. Did you go working on something. Can I just show you guys. Ten minutes of footage without telling you anything about what you did did know and also I didn't have a house lead was no it was at your house other. Oh it was drew Barry. We're staying Jesse. I was borrowing her house because I remember we walked in and on the right. That's where the Mark Halperin book was against the Front of the. I remember the whole thing yet. So you go compare and you had. The Room had very little furniture but there was that one there was a big TV. Yes and you go here. Just watch ten minutes of footage and you fucking played us. The first ten minutes of American History Acts Oak. I'd really yes you did and you were like I know we just written this movie and you were like. Hey tell me this works because you were when you editing it then yeah and and so literally walking you know you that I don't know your goofball in certain ways and you're like US and your I've context other than the race and I they walk into your house at the curb. Stop and then you turn around and get arrested all jacked up. And then you're like so guys you think works remember just like Holy Fuck. What am I dealing with like? What's this fucking but you were in this incredible herbals pot? What did it feel like to be with us? But I'm really interested in this right and then you were amazing right. We went out together. went to poker by the end of the night. It was an and this happened with mad. It did happen to the four of us by the end of that thing. We were all like family in a certain way. And that's why these bonds have stayed for so long. But what did it feel like to be you in that moment men after those three movies and sort of making his American history x and you know having arrived in California now at that spot not in in your life what what did it feel like. I have to sort of think back on. I mean I guess we're talking talking about. I feel.

Unfortunately film wasn't without controversy with some LGBT advocates disagree with the film's portrayal of his lesbian enjoying heterosexual intercourse and family groups taking opposition to the films normalising of homosexuality but you can bet that we'll be tackling all of that a little bit later so right now Alaska Luke how do you feel about team sports I like Tea I could have said I need that question like I need a Dick in my ass that's a good one isn't good impersonation of at Binny's Yeah I've been practicing how do you do I come across the kids arrive and what we are thoughts on it we saw it together so these we had heard the buzz took forever so when you will about him we would definitely gonna go because it was Julianne Moore Annette Benning you don't really need to sign anymore after Julia Moore with us and and a gay themed film which did not exist back then when we were going to the movies well I mean I completely loved it straightaway we both did we've just walked out just thinking it was absolutely wonderful that it was fresh and real and witty and of a beautifully performed incredibly moving it was everything that you would want to non horror film debate yes but it's interesting to me in a horror movie in that well I guess for us it's like horror movies we'll make so many concessions but with dramas and comedies we make none it has to be great because it's just not now thing is I think comedy's especially you and I are not really into comedy so it doesn't really matter if we find something funny than that film has done its job job I think this film is funny heartbreaking it's an honest look at the trials and tribulations of relationships and growing up in life in general the plot revolves heavily round the spindle father coming into the lives of the obviously to his two children and the couple chose him but that's just a plot device obviously it is the heart of the film is definitely in these interpersonal relationships and the film's strongest moments for me without a doubt the combat stations and the expressions and the anguish that these people face and they false upon one another and I also think it's a bit of a monster movie it's a really important I'm about lesbianism so no matter the backlash that the film received upon release from some circles there is this belief that I have that representation is intensive the law and the representation of homosexuality as it is in the kids are alright is done with a certain respect Denisot and dignity and it's also interesting that Matt Ruffalo isn't an antagonise he's he's a catalyst but he's not an antagonised and there's no one in this film that you would say is just fundamentally awful even tiny characters I mean okay probably the closest would a his friend clay yeah what do you get out of your relationship with Hey who the hell knows because he's horrible obviously his story culminates in him about to go and pay on that dog which ends the French because he just kind of it becomes so clear to what's his name laser laser of course that this person is not someone that he should have in his life well that's right and that's kind of lasers in the film clay is also used as a bit of a plot point to reveal the truth about pol the visit with poll by joining us laser as well because I think okay he's having relationship as as having a relationship with clay he's not that's the way they go about finding that out but definitely his growth in the movie he is signed good saying plays a Dick Yeah I think for me the film is moist about a really a family that's been really connected since they've been family and this is a window at a period of time in this families live with whatever is in they went meeting each other's emotion new needs and say every one of them looked outside the family for the first time and that is what makes the endings amazing is they turn back into each other you said in your introduction that she was going through the process of artificial insemination with her partner and this film is not her experience but it's rejecting or predicting what her experience could look like in twenty years and I think that's really interesting and maybe that's why the film feels kind of fresh and very full with thinking because she was thinking forward as she was riding yeah and I think a Lotta comes out in that one really crucial conversation.
