"I think to rebecca's point and that's the kind of movie that does stay with a voter and that does stay with a viewer. In a way that i think it only builds estimation Ask for me. I've seen it twice now on it. It really sticks with you in a way that served so well. I was gonna say yes in terms of other people single out his that. Cody's mcmurphy and kirsten dunst both seem to have a good sheriff fans from this as well definitely and we'll get into some of the other titles premiered at venice and ahead of the festival rebecca. You had done a piece on cyrano without having seen it Talking to joe right and kind of looking just central performance and there was a tribute appeared in english ahead of the screening. So you know if they're trying to prime somebody up for an award season aired of it. Seems like peter glitches right there right. Yes i think he. His performance is really strong in the movie. It's it's definitely getting mixed Sort of feedback from people. I talked to on the ground and telluride. You know it's a musical and it's really about love. There's not as joe right. I think it said in my interview not cynical bone in the body of this film and know some people are turned off by that but some of the songs work so well that they really stick with you days after But through it all like peter dinka just performances really wonderful and was adapted from a play that his wife wrote for him to play that lead so he really. You know just delivers a really memorable performance. So i think plus the tribute plus. He's beloved by the acting community already. It just feels like he's got a lot of those boxes checked that you do to become an oscar nominee so i could definitely see him coming. I i will say. I loved kelvin harrison. Junior in this film he can sing like an angel which. I did not know until i saw this. He had a great performance in waves. But i do think even if this isn't the one we'll be seeing him bigger films and as a lead hopefully another musical because he can really sing down the line anymore musicals in the world. We really do kelvin. He comes from like a famous jazz family. Event yeah he's got that background. Well he uses it well in the film he's and i think in english is not known so really be a singer in any sort of formal way but the music for cyrano was written by the two of the brothers who help make up. The band of the national and english is singing voice. Sounds so much like the lead singer of the national like. It's this really low kind of. I don't know how to describe it. like plaintive but not like becoming confident that's a it's a really interesting tone and so he's not like you know some beautiful musical theater singer but like he sells it in the movie and i think that kind of degree of difficulty stuff Earn some extra points. It never occurred to me. That peter england to the national a. b. o. Fit for that reason but the minute you said that i absolutely hear what peter tinkler just singing sound like it for myself glen hansard also pops up in one one scene singing a very beautiful song about war. We happy to see him And then okay two more titles went to check off the list Who i guess. They're both both in black and white. They'll fasten mum on my remembering this correctly Cow which which is the black and white film to beat in. I don't know audience affection or anything else. Belfast in terms of audience affection. I think if not i mean come on come on has gotten much better reviews. I liked that movie. The more than belfast. Personally but i think belfast has the sort of well. Rebecca spoke with canton. Yeah just you belt. It also felt like it played more at the festival than any other film because there was there was always a screening so if someone was always talking about it but you know i saw it ahead of time so i could do a preview. Peace with kenneth branagh and it's it's a very personal story to him and it's his realm. I think i said this before on this podcast but to me it you could actually feel how personal that story was to him and i really appreciate it. And because it's about his life as a child in belfast. When suddenly his childhood was sort of turned upside down by this violence in danger. And i feel like you can kind of relate to that now because as parents you have to decide what's safe and what's not during this pandemic with your kids and and then there's a lot of movie watching the film and i feel like being televised. You sort of remembered that you missed movie watching as an escape in a theater and so it just somehow becomes a super timely movie. Even though it's from kenneth branagh childhood wonder about movies with movie. washington them at their oscar. Track record is because there's movie watching rome. There's a time in hollywood. There's got to be a weirdly identical to in that respect to hand of god because that is also movie made from his childhood which through the various things that happened as childhood charts his journey to becoming a filmmaker so it some is a lot of parallels there and i believe that one also he spoke a lot about just the residents of the pandemic in terms of you know encouraging them to want to make this film so i wanna ask by hand god because david you mentioned that was one of the big three netflix..

"Yeah i wanna look back to the loss daughter for a second which cast you talked about. you reviewed Out of venice and was that. Tell you right as well and magill and hall. I mean when. I say people people were everywhere. My sense of tell you guys that just bump into the same people over and over again so. There's like not a huge number of celebrities but they're everywhere you turn and she looked great in her mountain where there with peter stars guards. He directed a daughter. She's got this great cast in their debut had talked to her previously. But making your trail debut and it seemed to Really dis- sore off. God that's cheesy to say you but it really took off until you're i'd like people seem to really embrace it. Yes so netflix. Had three events three different movies. Which the only studio to do that. Both the i was for Tina's the hand of god and that night was when an reviews for loss daughter breaking in venice and it was really all anyway conflicts could talk about at least in my conversations with them. it was really across the board raves. Including kassy's lovely review. And i think a real embrace of mega-deals vision for this film it's very uncompromising it's just not something you see from an actress. First film much at all And just like a real confidence in terms of this is the kind of movie making these kinds of characters. That i wanted to really dig into and i'm not gonna apologize for that and i think people really responded to that And it continue to play well once it starts screaming at telluride through the weekend And rebecca i. We're talking about this. Just how often you'd hear her name in the context of wow like. I just didn't expect that for maggie joan house first film or something like that She adapted the book. i think she's a really good contender particular for screenplay And i am curious. Farther foam can go across the board. Olivia colman it. Might be my favorite film performance of hers. It's just so tricky in deep and kind of plays off of her own very likeable persona in playing a character who ultimately makes them some tough decisions Both much vaccine in the present day and jessie buckley is place for younger self. She and coleman if they are both nominated would be the first pair to be nominated playing the same role which is interesting and jakoda. Johnson also is doing really great work in a different kind of role for her as a woman who character becomes kind of fascinated with just played really. Well they were everywhere to put. John was there. Peter maggie through a dance party on the last big Telluride which was attended by pearson dunston benedict cumberbatch and many many others. And david can't richard lawsuit until the dancing dancing. Because i don't like to dance but also dancing at high altitude. I don't know that seems like a bad idea. I imagine richard saintpetershcs guard dancing and just like disappearing back into the bushes like homer simpson was essentially did start a very abruptly like because the film set in greece since of this very like intense greek music and dance that mcgowan peter doing alone and then people are just kind of watching waiting to see whether or not they should join in this dance. Party had been sort of threatened for three days preview. Yes thank you yourself had told me about it. Days did make jonkers does ever make a movie together. And the odds like i keep thinking they have but i cannot come back to ask you that you literally on the shuttle to the airport and we sat there and looked out the window and tried to think of the what we can think of one. I guess they must not have but they were so in the same spent a lot of time together so jenkins carson dunst becoming spent movie. There was a big power that our presence in tyrod it's western it kind of makes sense there and it did seem like it was being warmly embraced the way that we expected it to be right. Yeah my prediction is that jane campion is coming out of this winning best director. I think that she has a very clear path. That's the I feel like that's a solid prediction. I mean you think you've pointed this out you know tatan wins poem to or the last woman to win palm door. Was jane campion. Who got best director nation for at the oscars but didn't win. And you know coming off. A year or two women get nominated for best director at the oscars for the first time. I do feel like there's so many female directors out there this year. That's gonna be like come on keep it going. Keep the make women as part of the conversation as much as possible not to mention the jane. Campion is kind of a legend onto her own. Do what the movie does so well is just like remind because it's been twelve years since she made a film and she's done you know tv obviously but it just reminds you of like what a singular filmmaker she is that her interests are so particular and the way that she Expresses those interests and you know here. She's a she's adapting from a novel. That's what sixty years old fifty five years old and and you're just kind of you after the movie you're like. Why did she pick. That is so interesting. But then obviously it's so clear also in hindsight like and i think that that kind of signature work after such a storied career puts her in in great and well-deserved position. I ha i went to the tribute where they showed clips of her work before she talked on stage at telluride any just like seeing the beautiful work she's done and then watching this film. I had that same experiences. Richard just like she deserves this. She's such talented filmmaker. I did suffer a little bit from festival hype before i saw this film because everyone i know was like this is the film ever and so i was like no. It's good. i enjoyed it. But it's funny. This film stuck with me more than any other movie. I saw there. And i was thinking about and talking about it three days later and and it's sort of like grew on me and now i consider it a film i really liked but i will say that festival hype is definitely still real buyer. Beware that that tribute was interesting too because reserve moderated by becky hide reporter. Jane campion was just not particularly interested in answering questions that this is how your your campaigns kicking off i love and she was just sort of hilariously charming in her refusal to participate and then the next morning at the film had a had. A big. you know well attended brunch. And she was just so effortlessly going from table the table talking to people. I think you saw her ability to enter. Vary singular person away at work. A room without being too focused on the campaigning. Part of it in that. We have to release scott move coming on the pike. Imagine the two of them working together. Just like passable veterans to jones is going to pretend this is happening and not be my guess. It's interesting to think about benedict cumberbatch who we talked about his role in this movie. It does seem like he is firmly in the best actor conversations. While he's about as different and movie stars you can get from will smith personas could not be more different but it is interesting to consider the two of them together like you know what what kind of a treat to have two different performances to potentially dominate the season. Going forward and another thing about jane campion's genius is that really figures out what to do with benedict benedict cumberbatch in a way that i feel like most directors heaven. They're like oh he should play these like like savant who solve crimes or invent computers or whatever and he's fine in those roles but campion saw the sort of darkness in him and just dragged all of it out and it's so effective but also. There's a hurt in there in this character. It's a really complex character. And it's the first benedict compromise performance. I've ever seen where i was like. Oh i finally fully get an. I think a lot of that credit should go to campaign. Yeah well i'm convinced me to wait. Isn't it the last thing i'd say about the movie is that you know just in terms of its. I think very first forward season that's coming is is it it builds. It has kind of thrums at this tension that you can't really place in. You don't really know where it's going. And she shifting points of view a lot and the last thirty minutes or so Are incredibly intense and the final few scenes are incredibly clarifying and make you want to revisit it..

"When she's playing someone who is seemingly living fabulous life from the outside but interior interior like like really constricted and feeling a bit desperate. I think that both kristen. Stewart and robert pattinson. I think they've said in interviews that they don't begrudge the twilight films. They didn't feel like they were stuck in this horrible contract or whatever but still the way that kristen stewart became famous then with various romantic things that were splashed all over the tabloids and everything. They're very much seems. She is working through or reflection how she kind of moved past that and became this indie kind of explorer. You know in the arts in the same way that diana spencer is contemplating a leaving the royal family. So we're reckon. David you guys were there until you're ready to see kind of how response was and it did seem like everything. I read from tyrod at christmas tour. And sorry richard. You're also entire. I don't mean to diminish your tirade. Kristen stewart was just like one of the big focal point of the whole festival. Like everyone was so excited to see her and talk to her about sponsor right. Oh yeah she was I mean that movie had just premiered venice to glowing reviews. And i think it was kind of perfect place for premier richard mentioned in our kind of postmortem. The screening we all attended together. It was it was the one premier that none of us decided to miss. That screening felt a little bit less uniform lame disaster. It seemed like i'd spoken to some people in the industry after the screening who were pretty repelled by it and and you. I got a different kind of sample size. Right of of how. The general public is gonna react to this movie. And so in terms of like Prognostication things that. I'm not sure quite how far the film itself can go. But everyone wanted to see kristen stewart. Everyone was talking about performance in and i think rightly. She's on track for her first nomination for sure. Yeah i think. That's the the big question that i have about spencer. Not having it in having loved jackie the previous probably movie about a troubled famous woman. but knowing that it also wasn't for everybody. Like i wonder when you say she's on track for her nation like you know that seems that happens all the time where we see people nominated for movies at. Don't that people don't otherwise love but it's spencer backlash coming around the bend wants more people get a look at it. I think it's i think it's the kind of movie that like. Jackie would struggle on. You know something like a preferential ballot. Say i'm just because there are. It's not going to be a consensus pick by any means. But i mean i think everyone on this podcast really liked the movie who seen it and so if if had its way you never know what our impact might be so i think if some people are really repelled by it. That's the movie doing. Its job exactly what it's rained that way. You know it is an people should recast great review which really goes into like the ridiculousness and how that needs to be there. It's really important. Like how the story is told but is putting itself so far out there that it's like you know what you can laugh at us if you want. You know we're just going to do this. Then it's going to be what it is because this is how we're telling this story it's not trying to be it's not. I don't think it's really trying to please. it's just trying to. Which makes it a really nice. That kind of in a unique these days like it's just it's own little contained piece of art that is Just kind of bearing throat for interpretation. That's interestingly how. I felt about harriet to just came to mind. You know with the singing and there's a lot of criticism around that but i felt that you know qazi lemon there and pablo laurien with this film. They both are doing something. I think that is maybe more accepted in theater which is really taking their subject to imagining it outside of the bounds of what we conceive of as reality and going to kind of psychological emotional place with it and that's always to be divisive but i don't know if you look back to the films from ten years ago you still remember and still like watching. It's usually the films that a lot of people didn't like wait. Like this is an interesting transition to the other actor who i feel like i heard about universally from telluride wishes will smith and king richard which from everything i can tell is a much more traditional much more crowd-pleasing movie but that studio movie. It's not the kind of thing that usually go to tell you right. But as far as i can tell everyone loved it. Yeah i think. I think because i went in thinking. This is a standard studio movie. Sports drama like. I know what i'm getting into and it just like pleasantly surprised me. I thought the film making was really great. Even the music. The everything just feels so thoughtful. And i just loved watching wills performance and supporting actresses are all really really great. It just like. I think. Because i went in with sort of lukewarm expectations. It just totally exceeded that and that is definitely the film that everyone i asked. What really impressed you like. This is the one that came up the most by far. Yeah i think it does a really good job of if you don't care about tennis or you don't really know anything about three known venus williams or earth there certainly their father richard williams like it. It makes you care like it because it stands on its own. It doesn't need the sort of you know the it's broader context to exist it And i think a large part of that is that the director reynaldo. Marcus green like like you said. We're back a he he. He makes thoughtful films. Even if there things like joe bell which was kind of roundly panned last year's toronto. But not by me like there's real intention there and care and that's how you take standard bio-pic and actually make it feel like an urgent movie and then on top of that you have real smith and i think that it's such a full body performance and it's really great to see that kind of work done in a movie that can support it. Because i feel like a lot of time come oscar season. We see these big towering performances but the movie the houses. It doesn't really live up to that. But i think king richard does well richard. You're famous on this podcast or making bold predictions and you've already made this prediction On vietnam and i need you to make it here. And i'm going to put you in ready done on a post it Would you like to make best actor oscar prediction right. Richard yes. I'm staring at the tower. I'm going to call it to you. Know that's the highest point. I can see wilson. That's gonna win oscar for this. Like i don't see anyone beating him at least from what i've seen this year Obviously there's stuff to come but it's it's just it feels like the timing is right. The movies right. The subject matter is right the kind of performance it is. It's because it's not will smith when he just tried to be very serious like in concussion or is that what it was that. Was that with that movie. You know or or even you know some of his earlier dramatic work like it's playful but also serious it's a re- he's playing a real life person. Which again the you know we know. The academy likes There's this all of the component parts and then again like i said the rest of the movie is good too. He has wonderful support from ingenue. Ls and the girls who play venus and serena and their sisters john burns halls even really likeable in it which. I didn't know that he could be likable. A lot of like apparatus around this great performance. That i think will help buoy it into like the top people screener cues and then on their ballots. I was just thinking about how you know. It's i asked long since brad pitt. Kind of had his whole like. Here's a major movie star. Give him an oscar. For god's sake late campaign that can really work especially when there's maybe to back it up. That's that well lake. Which was the hollywood was. And it's usually king. Richard is so. I think if you're going to be confident about something that's good to make he weirdly. Did not come to tell you right to promote it. But he's like so charming when he's on a press tour and so i feel like if we get to see a lot of will smith this season that will only help his journey to the oscar..

"Thanks if you're interested in seeing something like that. You should also checking richard because there are some sequences that resemble that very thing. You're king richard. If you don't i'll i'll stunned. I'll move to tell you right fulltime if you don't like him that makes everybody's problems all at once but I guess the other thing about gingrich's that's interesting is at telluride. It seemed like the best actor race of firmed up pretty clearly With the oscars later this year. You know. Peter dink is appearing joe rights adaptation of cyrano debris called cyrano musical with music by the two twin brothers. The disner brothers from national lot of people were like. Oh peter dan coolidge. I forgot he's amazing. I love him. I did not see. Sarah no i well. It was largely an issue of timing and a lot of people who saw even people who were joe wright doubters and joe wright is a real fifty fifty kinda heads or tails kinda filmmaker. Half half of his movies. I think are brilliant. I like atonement. And hannah are brilliant. Fascinated by his anna karenina. He also directed the woman in the window this year. Which was no good darkest hour which is kind of middling so people said that this was sort of return to form for him. I'm not terribly interested in the serrano. Debris story are you know. I feel like i've also seen it adapted so many times at this point i would say the real warning flags for me were musical and to essner.

You drive to tell you about another ninety minutes or so so getting there is very challenging. There's only one maybe two flights a day out to montross and also the only on certain days so in order to go on this trip by the time i was ready to book a flight i would have had to have been until you write for about six days.

"It's pretty clearly their top contender and we know. Netflix puts a lot of effort into their contenders. So that does not mean nothing. There are a couple of other big deal. Titles that are overlapping between venice and telluride which we know varying degrees of things about The lost daughter which is john trail debut. Also coming from nut flakes david. You also preview piece on that It'll premiere at venice and perhaps simultaneously tell your eye perhaps not quite but that's really interesting to look out for because a debut film is Can you know a lot of actors. Direct movies that no one ever sees again. But this is a really huge platform debut that as an elena frontier adaptation and david. You've given me some hints about olivia colman's presence in that movie. That has me personally really. Hope you see it. Yes and then. The third netflix is the hand of god which netflix is also really hot on. That's from policy and tino who did the great beauty which won the oscar for at the time called best foreign language film and it's one that they are really high on i think they're thinking of a potentially as aroma which i was afonso crohn's looks movie that of course went onto very well at the oscars. It's his most personal movie. Set in naples and i think that's about all we know right now but they're very high on it. Naples italy not florida goes. I would watch a starting tina Naples absolutely would not to this within. He's gonna do his florida project and then spencer. The movie with kristen stewart directed by pablo rain Director jackie and i'm. I'm so out of my mind excited about it in a way that i probably need to chill out because like it's just a movie like in. I know way more about princess. I than single movies going to be able to include but the marketing for this has been so good like they had that teaser poster. Where she's like you know crying in her dress and then the minute long trailer work. Christmas stuart says like two syllables. Everyone's like oh my god her accent. They have played this so well for it to kind of like open with a boom at venice. If it's got the goods played it well but also risk. Because that's a lot of build up you know. There's a lot of anticipation. I was pleasantly surprised that when that teaser trailer dropped and we hear kristen as diana say they. Don't you know. I think that's actually when i asked if they had screenings for details but like i was really pleasantly surprised that the general twitter reaction seemed to be supportive. I kind of thought as with jackie. Pablo lorraine's last biopic film With nellie portman there were two camps one. That really made fun of what portland was doing and one that just for like wholeheartedly embraced it. There wasn't a lot of middle ground. I felt like and i was kind of expecting more of the negative takes two to emerge i even just based on one tiny line of dialogue but actually the opposite was true. It seemed like people were really excited about it. We're into the accent were into the casting in a bigger way that when it was first announced people were like That doesn't make any sense. But it gradually has seemed to make more sense as more and more snippets of glimpses of the film has been released as someone who i can't remember. I said this on the podcasts are just too in my actual life that The year that seeburg and charlie's angels came out. I was like disney kristen stewart sierra. She's going to have an already movie to have a blockbuster. I did a little too early. But now i feel like it's time she has. He's never got an oscar nomination. This does feel like if it's if it's going to get her if it's gonna do well it's going to get her directly there. Yeah i think. I think it. Also it has the benefit. I think i mentioned this earlier. on the podcasts. Couple weeks ago The has the benefit of getting out ahead of the diana Royals storm. that's coming our way. This fall With the crown and diana musical. That's going to be Allegedly back on broadway but also will be. There will be a film version on netflix. It's like they have at least in the festival circuit They'll be i and so are diana of fall. Twenty twenty one will take the shape of chris stewart more than anyone else crown the next season the crown might not come until next year. So that was okay. Probably the only person excited for that. Oh please i'll be there whenever it whenever he shows up. So let's go to telluride. There's gonna be some titles. Tell you that We've seen in other places richard. You reviewed red. Rocket can That's the simon rex. Movie from sean. Baker that'll be there I saw flee at sundance which is really wonderful. It's going to be there and then a A lot of big titles. That were just really curious about so. Maybe you guys just want to say like what's the thing that you're going to go grab your ticket for i when when you get the chance. There's quite a few things. I'm dynasty. cyrano. I did a early preview for us On but i have not seen the full film. I got to peak some footage and it's joe wright's latest and it starts peter english and it's based on a stage musical that peter's wife had written For him based on the classic tale and it looks you know. I love a musical and i love a love story so it really it it. It's right up my alley. I i haven't heard any buzz either way on it but it's definitely something. I'm really looking forward to checking out and And then i'm right there with you. Don't worry we're going to be the number one and number two joe racine until the end and then And then i think king richard. Because it's it's gonna be at telluride. And and that sort of its world premier. From what i know. I'm really interested in Seeing and i have a lot of questions about it. But i i would be excited if it's a really strong will smith performance. Yeah we talked about. King richard on this podcast briefly but he wanted to give a room. I mentioned someone who assumed it was north korean movie like the green knight which is fair. Yeah it's about three hundred williams and their father and how he sort of shaped there Tennis career so it's it's mostly focused on him obviously by the title because his name is richard and you know Features the performance by will smith. And i think we've all been waiting for the will smith oskar returned. So maybe this is it or maybe. It's not and i'm guessing wrong..

"Hopefully this podcast will watch it. I will say though if. I'm sarah colangelo directed. The film and netflix did this to worth and also did it to my previous film that kindergarten teacher. I might think about maybe play a you know trying to place my next film somewhere else. That's not to say that there's anything specifically malicious about the way that netflix is dealing with colangelo herself. But like it's just an example of that is a huge company that has to kind of prioritize certain things over others Especially when it comes to award stuff. We'll see what they do with worth. I doubt that they're going to much given that. They have a lot of other things on on on their way. But i guess it's interesting in a film that is about. I think a in a really measured way some bits of triumph but also some other things will people falling through the cracks in in terms of like how this money is allocated. I guess it's kind of fitting in a way that that like worth itself in the movie is another thing that it kind of. Yeah and i mean the thing lure bantu you who is like a broadway legend and actor. I've always really admired. But leveling up in this film in a way that i've always been like lower benatti great yes But this is by far away. The best thing. I've ever seen her do. It's incredible and reminds something cogan used to say on this podcast when you are watching a film and you could see the oscar real not as coming out of her nose and i'm like there it is. There's there's the degree they should be playing at the oscars for laura. She's so good and is a and it's an actual supporting actress role. And it's it's incredible. So yeah i really hope that people watch this and our role as major major influencers That's a joke gets gets people to watch worth. I was just thinking again about spotlight and the fact that it was released by open road films which has a very complicated with kapadia page but as the wind bankrupt in two thousand eighteen. Like three years after spotlight wins. Best picture It was kind of this scrappy player and award season and it was their whole ship. Like that was what they were putting their effort behin- and they pushed it all the way to oscar. And you see the power of netflix and having so many titles and we're about to talk about a bunch of films that are coming to this festivals. That were really excited about and seem really great. That are being released by net flicks But it doesn't give them the ability to how something like this is like a loss loss leader like it makes you wonder why they have it. You know lake. It's not like it's going to get huge numbers. Compared to you know the next season of british bake off or something like that but like they have a michael keaton movie. I don't know. I can't get why they get to keep doing this to like really great movies. This is my Grudge a over private life for the last three years to. they felt like a similar trajectory. Like i guess for all the the critique around the house can be released or or my concern like at least independent people will be able to see this safely which something that can offer to filmmakers and and also the the upshot of a film on netflix is that you know unlike him a minor micro distributor lake. There is much wider access to it so hopefully like maybe this will have a big word of mouth audience lake. That hasn't really been the reality so far. But like that's always the hope of netflix distribution. That's always i think. What filmmakers are hoping for with an distribution. So maybe maybe. I do like to imagine that the next time stanley tucci post a viral video or something else that people be like. What are the stanley. Tucci have on netflix. they can watch. And maybe they'll watch worth and that will that will be how it finds its audience. Because why not. Also one last plug for michael keaton's big accent which i love a big accident for michael keaton big fan so good in this movie as the boston native. Say he gets it really right. Yeah it feels right because it is a big accent but like knowing not much about boston accents. It felt like the way a real person talk. Like i like high school band. Teacher talked weirdly. He's like every male administrator at every school went to in town is yeah. I was just thinking that shouldn't. Hbo come up. With a really good sunday. A prestige procedural for amy ryan michael keaton that in boston. Watch fast right. Yeah give it to me. We're giving out free ideas over here. Life is full of things to manage your work. Your family your plans and your treatment considered key symptom. Oh fatuma map twenty milligram injection. You can take it yourself from the comfort of home if you're ready for something different. Ask your healthcare provider about key. Santa and check out the details at key symptom dot com brought to you by novartis pharmaceuticals corporation. Well now we're going to move on to our festival season preview. Richard and david and rebecca. You're all heading to the mountains of tyrod this year. Richard you the only one of us on this call who's been to telluride before moving events before as well we won't have anyone on the grind this year because as you might have heard this pandemic going on um but venice venison festival starts a few days before but really the two of them together. Kind of kick off festival season So going heading to tell you right this year. Richard like it's it was cancelled. Last year is returning this year is kind of a cove. Safe bubble are your expectations as high as they've been in previous years. Yeah i mean. I think it helps that i went to. Can you know so. I kind of got the first big public festival under my belt. You know And telluride compared to venice can or even toronto is such a different animal because it's smaller. It's sort of deliberately noncommercial you know. I think there are sponsors of the festival. But there's not branding everywhere. There aren't accurate. Sponsored sweets lounges. And all that stuff it really is just for a bunch of people who love movies and have the money to do it to just spend a long weekend A beautiful place watching new exciting things. And so i think that energy and that scope will fit well in these times. You know when we have to go through certain protocols and safety is concern all line waiting at outdoors and you know. I think that like it'll be kinda rough wearing a mask at eight thousand foot elevation. We'll we're doing. Your wind sprints to train. I live in a fifth floor. Walkup so i feel good condition but yeah i. I think that that the environmentally it will feel better maybe than like venice. What has you know with like waiting for long. Lines to get into water buses and all that stuff and in the films themselves you know the the festivals always well curated by julia huntzinger festival and other people is really exciting. And it's a lot of what is exciting. That's going to be at venice at subsequent festivals later in the fall. So i think that the combination of what i hope. It will feel like safe festival. Everyone's required to be vaccinated and cova tested and good stuff will will really kick off this fall season with bank. So we've got to tell you kicking off on friday over the course of lake administrative few days earlier. So as you're listening to this it's going on and there's a decent amount of overlap between the festivals and i don't want to spend too much time talking about power the dog because we talked about it very recently on a but club with david preview piece about it but it's going to premiere as thing going to be at telluride. It's then going to be as phone festival. Toronto film festival. It does on some level to me. Feel like kind of the film to watch with a bullet which is not necessarily what i would have expected a year ago for a jane. Campion western but Are you sharing my deep level of hype on that one. Oh yeah i feel like. I have very high expectations from the film. I mean there's just you know in l. a. especially. I think there's just so much buzz about these movies before the festivals and you just everywhere you go someone like oh i saw this and i hear someone i know saw this and they say it's this. I feel like power. The dog definitely has that buzz so my expectations are high. Yeah feel like rebecca. I have been trading notes so many titles with events yes of course. I have seen power of the dog in. Can't say anything beyond that. But i think it being. And i believe it is the only premier among the september festivals that is hitting all four stops in the same way that net flicks marriage story years ago indicates that they are really priming it for major campaign and until don't look up screens the film that will surely be in the conversation based on his last two films..
"telluride" Discussed on Little Gold Men
"We have brought you here on the verge of trip to the mountains because the telluride film festival is almost upon us which is really exciting. We are releasing this episode as the telluride lineup is finally announced It's kept secret every year. We finally get to talk about it. And what you guys. And richard are expecting to see up in the mountains. The venice film festival as you listen to this is already underway. There are beautiful people on boats Festival season is happening for real again. you know in slightly altered ways but it's happening after tyrod cancelled last year so really excited talk about telluride in venice and festival. Season ahead But i we do have a new movie that we want to talk about. I which is worth which is premiering on net flicks this week. So we'll talk about worth talk about festivals and have a lot of movies for you guys to all watch Let's get to worth. I because richard you reviewed this at sundance twenty twenty which. I'm not sure if your memory goes back that far but you did write a review of its on behalf dot com. You can read it right. Yes it's up. It's something of a rave I was really into that movie when i saw it. Yeah so you had you had sought. Then it got picked up by net flicks. Either i think right during the festival right after and then basically felt the face of the earth for a really long time. Nevarez releasing it. This friday Time someone to the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven which is coming right up And i finally got the chance to watch it after. You've been reading about for so long joanna I know you really eager to see it as well. And i think you know having talk to you about it. Richard and david a fan too. I think the question for all of us was like why does it feel like this movie. Coming on netflix. That barely exists. Because it's great. It's a great movie. Yeah and when it premiered at sundance it didn't get enough of the raves at needed and it didn't sell and it just kind of languished for a while before netflix snapped it up and now we're releasing it either appropriately or maybe a little cynically time to the twentieth anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks but that release schedule means that it kind of going to get buried again. I think which is a shame because there's so much there to like The subject matter is difficult But it's supposed to be and the performances are top to bottom some of the best that each actor has done at least in recent memory from michael keaton stanley tucci to laura banana who the latter two two team. Bananas should absolutely be in supporting actor conversations this year and yet. I don't think they will be david. You had seen worth. I don't know if it was but you kind of a long standing fan of it as well right. Yeah i saw it at sundance. And i remember coming out of that screening and expecting it to be one of the big breakouts. The movie we'd be talking about for twenty twenty award season of course other they would not things happened after that sentence feel that a lot of big oscar contenders including minority and promising. Young woman. I think it was a real victim in many ways of the pandemic and a movie like that. Not really having any place to go. Since i think kind of traditional specialty theatrical distribution would have made sense for it and then there wasn't Twenty twenty really. And i think netflix releasing it. When they are. I completely agree with it. There's an element of it feels appropriate. But there's also an element that feels quite cynical to me and more broadly. I just feel like this movie does deserve a bit more of a push than there. Evidently giving it and michael. Keaton to me would have been pretty clearly in the best actor. Conversation addition disappointing performances. Also loved amy ryan and the movie so it just i hope people check it out and i hope it does get more of a life than maybe not lexus. Expecting at this point for me. I couldn't not think of spotlight while watching this. Got michael keaton doing boston accent. You've got him and stanley both. It's a really kind of similar. Like procedural somber story about people in business casualwear in office But with a lot of heft to a lot of like you know really deep emotions buried under all of these logistics and numbers and just i k-. I can't really fathom why. Netflix isn't willing to treat it like a spotlight like something that deserves that level of attention. Well it's really tough because the double tragedy of this is the the long road that this film had in the first place to even say it's twenty twenty. Which is that. it was like a two thousand eight. I think blacklist script that max bornstein wrote. And then max boise. Went on to make all these godzilla movies. And then he took his guts zillah. Money and like made his blacklist lake script finally which is based off of and. I don't think we've seen exactly what this is about. But it's based off of ken feinberg book about. Who was a person who was put in charge of. I don't know i'm gonna use this word correctly adjudicating Allotting the the nine eleven fund survivors and figuring out how to compensates family members of those who lost their lives on nine. Eleven and the word worth has to do with this idea of calculating. What is the worth of a loss human life. And that's you know so it's like really heavy material and it's i. I watched it at my desk. Which i'm not thrilled that that's how i watched it but i watched it at my desk. Yesterday i cried on my keyboard several times but i was also like this is a movie. I really wish. I were watching anna theater so that i couldn't possibly be distracted any point because like with spotlight which i saw it. If i'm festival you know like you wanna be just sort of completely in that world and not drawn out of it by you know something on your phone or whatever and so you know like all movies. That premiere on netflix. I worry that it won't land with the same impact. It would have had in the theater even though it made me cry. Like i feel like i would've felt even stronger if i had seen it in a theater. So we're committed to paying attention to it and really thinking into it and you know you can imagine a lot of people being like okay. There's bob ross thing though. Here's kind of juicy. I'm gonna flip over to that instead. Yeah like. I've always been a little skeptical of of the netflix model. When it comes to releasing a film that i feel like demands profound emotional and intellectual. Attention do So yeah. I totally agree with john. Like i did not go to sundance and i'm really sad. I missed this film there because the feeling of discovery is like exactly what you want with a film like this and now you know when we were talking about this film i still do not have it on my radar when it was about to come out because with netflix. You just cannot keep up with the amount of volume and the amount of films they're releasing and the they're really selective about what they give a big push to especially when it comes to award season so i think you guys are all on the money that it's just sort of a disappointment but.

Were probably both during familiar with but tell us a little bit about your background. Now you're making me feel about about representing the hometown here but this is a pretty cool picture. I took Just a couple of weeks ago. A friend of mine just got an sr twenty two t and wanted to go flying around the mountains. And so i think one of the best photos i got was on approach to telluride. And it's really cool as you kinda go between some some canyons and it's just sitting there on a ledge. It couldn't be any more unique or picturesque and not only. Was it cool to to land there but the technology and airplanes has come a really long every for almost twenty years and to think about the first time i flew the mountains of colorado versus doing it in a modern sucessor twenty two. A lot's changed throughout the industry can only imagine a lot has changed. And how often do you keep up with flying. Well it's one of those things. The more that i get involved in aviation but some ways the less i have time to do it but i'm pretty active now. I think that Once a week every other week. I think is is where i am. I think that the travels picking back up and that's going to help me from from flying perspective share and let's talk about at. What was the inspiration of her flag aware how they get started so i have always had a passion for airplanes end for flying and really. My background is in software development. And i got involved in the first internet service provider in texas in the early nineteen nineties and learned a lot about that and saw the evolution of ecommerce in the web and email and all these things then got involved in a number of other software startups in none of them.

Canceled Telluride Film Festival announces lineup
"Telluride film festival decided to announce what would have been the slate of films that they were GonNa, show on. September fourth when the festival is supposed to take out, take place before it was cancelled in July, and then we also started to get some news about the New York Film Festival, which will be world premiering a few titles. I. Still don't totally understand how the New, York Film Festival is happening, but let's just talk a little bit about what's going on with film festivals right now. So last year at telluride. They debuted the world premiere of Uncut Gems and Ford versus Ferrari and Judy and first cow, and they had the North American premiere of marriage story. This was a bountiful slate. Lots to see it was a very exciting time. This year, the slate was not a strong. There were some interesting films. There were some very relevant oscar-worthy conversational picks there. I think Francis. Leaves Amanite which many people have been talking about a new movie starring Kate winslet. Insertion Ronin. We're looking for that. How many Oscar nominations to search have at this point twelve fifteen? No. I think it's four, and this will be her fifth, which just seems like I just want to say when we made our really irresponsible Oscar predictions for this year and like having seen nothing I was like I, think Social Ronin will win for this movie that I haven't seen so. At least I think I did I meant to, if I didn't you know please like revised history.

Oprah's Weight Loss Journey
"What I have learned through. My ordeal with weight is is that you really cannot begin to work on the physical although I tried for thirteen solid years in a row. But you can't begin to work on the physical until you I get at what's holding you back emotionally even if you do lose the weight and those of us who've struggled we've lost a thousand pounds in our lifetime and like I did back in one thousand nine hundred eighty even if you do lose it. It's only a short term solution unless you get to the heart of. What is the real problem? The audience may have cheered me in this moment of triumph and I really did think it was a moment of triumph but just two days later actually bought two hours afterwards. I couldn't fit into those same jeans. Getting to the real problem has been the most difficult part of all. Because only you can do that. There is no diet program in the world that can tell you what is blocking you the question to ask yourself. I have learned is what am I afraid of? Because the reason we don't move forward in our lives is because the fears that hold us back. We're not talking about being scared of the dark or being scared that somebody's going to hurt you. But it's the thing that when I'm talking about I'm talking about the things that keep you from being all that you were meant to be. I believe all of us were brought to the planet for purpose. If you're not about whatever that souls purpose is then you're not doing what you came to do and you're being block. It took me fifteen years to face my fears which I never before could admit to anybody including myself so this is part of the process of what it had learned to do. It is not everything biggest fear for me was not being able to confront and what I learned is it's no different. If you are addicted to food as I was if you did drugs reducted to addicted to alcohol. That fears is what holds you back. That was my number one problem. Not being able to confront number two. I'd say this was at the the bottom line root of all my problem is I had a fear of not being liked and because added this fear of not being liked. I had a fear of saying no so what happened to me. Most of my life I ended up ruling my life based upon what other people wanted me to do. It's hard to believe because you know I have this powerful position. I have this job and speak to millions of people every day but in my life as I moved through my life like most women I think I think we were raised with this disease to please. These fears kept me from really being the person that I think I was born to be. Because somebody asked me to be someplace or do something or just daily experiences with people it would be hard for me to say to them what I was really feeling and if somebody had done something that upset me all through my life including being abused. I was one of the children who was abused. Because I couldn't say no because it was more important for me to please the abuser than to please myself so if you're going to begin to get to the root of the weight problem. I think it's very important for you to peel back. The layers emotionally. I was GONNA ask some women's audience who've been fighting it themselves to come up and join me in the process for Paris is taking me fifteen years to do this so I don't expect you to be able to do it in five minutes but you see what I'm talking about. Do you understand you at least make the connection. Yes you do and it's not just it's not I used to say it's my hips thighs. It's my bird honey and sale this little cute things but at least it's important. I think for people to make the connection that it is an emotional problem that manifest itself physically. Do you agree on other than being confronted with it? Yeah and so what would you say is? It's the top of your list. Probably some of the stuff. That's in mind. I can never tell anyone the truth about what it felt because it was too painful to painful and so are you like me then you would eat it because what I could do. I could go to dinner and say everything I was supposed to say to that person over a bowl of fries have never tell them could never tell them. Okay so number. One is can't tell it like it is can't tell the truth really. I speak the truth but my inside like the fear of what'll happen to me because happened over and over again when I told the truth about my life I got left out. So you're fear of really telling the truth and your fear. Is that if you really tell the truth in? What will happen abandoned again? You'll be abandoned again Peres. Your fear is my fear is that I'll regain it again. It'll be the only goal that I won't have been able to maintain your regain the way wait. So why do you have it in the first place? That's the thing why do you have it? What does the weight of a question one of the questions I had to ask myself? What am I afraid of? What does the weight represent for me? What does the weight represent for YOU COMFORT TO COMFORT TO COMFORT? And so why? Is it easier for you to eat than it is? To deal with whatever's going on right there I don't really have to face it if it's a problem everything that I've achieved while I'm achieving instead of dealing with the stress of it I've actually eaten instead that's right that's what I used to do. I mean I never I mean I went through the whole seventies and never thought I had a stressful moment because I ate everything away. That's right that's right so I carried almost stress in my sputnik and another thing. I realize this. Let me ask you if this is true of you too that I've never really allowed myself to feel whatever it is to feel anything because I would cover up the feeling before I could actually feel anger or feel depressed or feel any sense of anxiety I would cover it up with whatever it was eating. Do you do that too? Yes well what I want everybody to do who has struggled with this for years. If nothing else happens as a result of the show today is to make the connection because the most important thing is is that once you make the connection to begin to deal with the truth of your life. Which is what I've had to do. Is that will give you the courage and the discipline to fight the physical battle of the weight. That will give you the courage. The problem is all these years. We've been fighting it the wrong way. We think you can just diet it off. We think you can just exercise enough or you. We think that is just about willpower. It's not about willpower. It's about the truth. It's about the truth. So if you figure that out and it may take you a year and may take you hope it. Don't take fifteen years like me but when you begin to figure that out that's when you can move on to the physical which is what we're going to do right now. I thank you at least you made the connection right the beginning. It's a beginning. I cannot stress enough that you have got to be prepared emotionally mentally and physically before you can win the war against those fat cells you can lose them for a time but they always come back you can work your heart out and still not lose a pound running four miles a day. I wrote four miles a day but it feels like I'm running in place. I'm getting nowhere. Haven't lost a pound in two months and in June nineteen ninety two. I was the heaviest I've been in my entire life. I topped out at two hundred and thirty five pounds for the any awards. I do want to get by the chair to accept the award. I knew I needed help. I left the EMMYS and I went to a SPA and telluride and at that SPA. I met Bob Greene who is an exercise physiologist. Who had a fascinating philosophy about weight loss? I wasn't ready to hear it then until I finally felt that I had pilled away enough of my own emotional layers that I was ready to deal with how to physically get the weight off so I gave Baba call and I said Bob. I'm ready if you WANNA work out but you don't know where to begin. Bob Is your guy. He's changed the way I feel about exercise and change my life. Hey so when we first started workout. You said to me well first of all you said to me that. I was going to have to work out twice a day because my metabolism was shot. Not Everybody's is so. What did you mean by that? My metabolism was shot after years of dieting. Well the first thing you have to assess is years of dieting. What that does to your body. What it does is slow. Your metabolism metabolism tablets is the rate that your body uses calories or burns calories. A mine was being real real slow because of the years and years dieting. And why does dieting do that? Well again it's going to make you lose your lean tissue. That's the reason that diets don't work. Yeah Lean weight and you have fat. Wait the fat wing. Is really the bodies calories along with the foods that you consume so that that way? That's the fat wait okay. Your body's fuel. The Lean weight is like your furnace. So you feed the furnace with foods that you consume and the fat tissue. That is on the outside exterior of your body. So that's really what worked for me. I understood that that my body is like a furnace and I got a heated up in order to burn the calories and because it was so slow. My body was like cold because of the metabolism. Right exactly he ended up. You said the key
Movie Theaters Are Still (Mostly) Open, But That Won’t Last
"It's been a devastating week for the entertainment industry as Kovic Nineteen forces to cancellation of public gatherings. All over the world. Movie theaters are struggling to cope with two major factors declining attendance and delayed film releases from Motion Picture Studios theaters around the globe have closed but major change like AMC and cinemark have not yet decided to close up shop here in the US. Here's John Horns discussion with senior film writer at Variety Matt. Donnelly one that we've been reporting on depicted but theaters will close regionally not a blanket. You know all the movie theaters in the country represented by trade group called NATO But we imagined that they'll they'll try to close out in pockets of the slow wave to get as much you know revenue as they can. Nato is the National Association of Theatre Owners and just a couple of days ago. They cancelled their annual convention which was scheduled for the end of the month in Las Vegas. The other factor is that a lot of major releases are being pulled from the calendar. Disney has pulled. Moulin the new James Bond Movies. Nocco come out the next fast and furious sequel. Fast Nine has moved to next year. There are a number of other movies that have been placed on hold. What kind of problems does that create for those theaters that remain open because it seems like a lot of the tentpole movies aren't going to get released? Yes the great question. I mean it doesn't incentivize an audience to brave public faces when you don't have really premium and exciting new films to show them and also let's talk about just the agrees Spending on marketing studios have already completed to promote rely on and stuff nine. They're looking at hundreds and millions of and across the board for movies that aren't going to hit theaters for another year or so. If movie theaters are considered dangerous or if they're actually closed might companies like Disney and. Maybe it's not move on. Maybe it's another movie down the line just get released on Disney plus or an equivalent streaming service. Do you think that is part of the potential conversation going forward I can tell you confidently that over the past month or so of all been you know? They won't dare speak out loud The strategy of going directly to digital. But don't forget that a lot of companies are publicly traded so they have an onus to create value for general that. They can't get their movie theaters. They might be obliged to release them through streaming for higher price point or just to incentivize customers to stay but yeah. I think absolutely this is the reason to To look at sort of Shattering will be called the traditional theatrical window. Which is where movie theaters get ninety days or exclusivity with all the movies that come out and then they moved down two places like streaming and on demand. I think he could absolutely see some of the mid range films. You take something like marbled new mutants which is Sort of young adults giving property. I don't think that anyone to expand that to blow minds in the movie theater. They could easily put that directly on Hulu wish neons and and see up taking subscribers just before we got on the phone. I looked at the stock of cinema world which runs Regal United Artists and Edwards Theatres. Its stock is down. Almost eighty percent in the last month compared to the overall market dropping about twenty-five percent cinemark another major chain has seen its stock dropped almost sixty percent and at the same time. Netflix is down just seventeen percent which is better than the overall market so it feels like Wall Street sentiment on the at least short term potential for exhibition is really grim and at the same time. A lot of movies in production are shutting down as well and that won't be felt for months if not a year down the line. Is that going to be a factor as well not just for exhibition but for streaming services? Yeah I mean we. We've been having conversations about e even take the last round of of film festivals that went up. Jones going distribution all the time to to places like Toronto telluride Sundance. I think the OC a spike in sales of those finished movies But they can put up on services today but in terms of original production places like netflix. Amazon impact will be dramatic. Episodes opened a brand new six down stage facility in New Mexico where they intended to shoot the stranger things that will be delayed. You're talking about like theory of Marquis Properties in the stream or so. I think there will be a bit of a shock to either licensed beloved prize old content to put on or a scramble to fine finish work. They can put up in the near term. It does feel like some smaller exhibition chains are trying to come up with creative solutions. Alamo Draft House said that it in its San Francisco Theatre. It's doing something where no more than two hundred people can be in the theater and it's GonNa ask people to kind of separate themselves from one another. It feels like an interesting idea. I don't know how sustainable it is. Are you hearing other things like that where people can buy seats and maybe block off the seats around them or is it just whatever you find when you get into the auditorium? I think you'll find a lot of people finding creative solutions to enjoy the game. But I think at the end of the day there's so much option And there's just such a volume of content. You can watch at home so I think it's just more about separating the the brave from those would rather stop by Saly and you and I cover the movie business. I haven't been in a theatre at least a week and a half. How are people who cover movies? Seen movies are a lot of people now watching films on their laptops as opposed to going to screenings or theaters absolutely You know I went to a screening of a short film that one of the talent agency last week and of Savonarola Laura dern who just gave everybody an elbow bump to say hello and handshake so I think people are increasingly quite. Get us about Coming together so they do a lot more digital screeners for for industry professionals. Another interesting note As of last night The South by Southwest Film Festival organized. A last minute of sort of virtual festival with an online screening library to try to give some of those Indians. That didn't get to play a chance to get in front of accredited president. Chris I think is really cool and also what kind of solution that keeps everybody
Diversity at the Oscars: The 2020 Race Isn’t Looking Any Better Than Last Time
"I feel like hell for the law and Michael to Michael for lying and get contraction I saw this French film of course later on so I was very excellent and might just make it to be honest it would not Maxis the prices for me you know at the very beginning of awards season three kicks off with three phone fast fan is Toronto in telluride at the end of the summer the beginning the full and then bounced off you start hearing people's reaction and this is the red slacks a waiting van and you're looking at pictures saying well they're all satin and a prominent films with African Americans the soon so would directed by women I didn't know if they were going to cross over the queue for that group of voters in a few years ago actually when when a post all the adults because so white we could get at round tables with the active the directors the writers and when we were putting together the actress round table there were absolutely no women of color who seems like they would even like to to get nominated and I remember and and we got pretty massively criticized rightly I take the blame for this to have an all white women's round table and and we changed direction after that but it was evident that the industry walking creating those films and I think it's easy to say if the cat in the for XP industry see both you and you have to tackle things in multiple directions I think the academy's has done a great deal to do that what we have is talking about this the other things the academy dot for instance mentorship program financing for education there are multiple patrols here that lead to this problem and she also looking at the ferry downstream and the cat in the wrong but you call take in isolation April Stephen has a great point we tend to look at the academy not that the academy shouldn't be accountable they should they're sort of the tip of the iceberg in many many ways what's your view of the academy that you focus so much attention on verses the industry I absolutely agree with Steve and that it's not just the economy it's not just the golden globes is not just a Baptist we need to go all the way back to the very beginning to the screenwriter stage and figure out again whose stories are being told and who is telling those stories when someone is sitting down with a blank page and findings front of them hoping that they have written about to write the next best picture you know what is the protagonist look like is it a tall leggy blonde from the Midwest because if so by the time we get the casting months the maybe years later then the only person you're thinking about is Scarlett Johannson or Jennifer Lawrence but then one has to ask what is their hair color have to do with how well they perform in that film right because that means then then Daya and Gina Rodriguez and other people won't even get an opportunity to audition just because of what's that in the mind set I absolutely agree that the economy is the very end of the line so we really need to start back at the beginning and find out what opportunities are being given to traditionally under represented communities not just with respect to race but also sexual orientation gender identity disability to get those films made from the very beginning and at the same time April you have written about the types of roles that black actors and actresses do get nominated for once they are cast once they are in that pipeline you wrote a piece in variety you talk about how the only black woman to be nominated for Best Actress was Cynthia Revo who plays Harriet Tubman in the film Harriet similarly Lupita nyong'o won an Oscar for her role in twelve years a slave but this year she was overlooked for the to care after she played in Jordan peels hit movie us talk about what you see is the pattern for how black actors and actresses get promoted and celebrated when they are in films it's a real problem and I think that Stephen touched on this a bit you know that that in their minds that even when they were sending up those round tables they didn't think that those you know particular performances were even going to cross over for women of color and so they were included in the panel and one must ask what kind of troops palatable to the economy to voters to film critics because the vast majority of winners especially for women of color and black women in film have all come from a place where the characters are experiencing significant trauma so inflamed women women living in abject poverty even Whoopi Goldberg who played the cookie skit side kick in ghosts and when the best supporting actress you know they were there were questions about whether she had mental health issues right the only black woman who's ever won for Best Actress is Halle berry in monster's ball and clearly she with the troubled character and so one has to say well are there only thing is that the economy fees you know that only a slave narrative that is palatable to again a majority white male voter membership and that's the movies that we see time and time again you know why is it that my pain the pain of my ancestors is entertaining for you that that is what you will award but when someone like Peter in young girl has to fully fleshed out characters in us she is snubbed for that role because we actually the very first of may off to be on the actress roundtable if you will be pizza it was a wonderful performance so it isn't shown true of actresses of color you know for the rack access to the email you'll you'll you'll call the mansion on college and terrific performance by Adam Sandler but is deceived official in the movie Sean movies don't tend to do well they lost to until movie was was one of the very few exceptions and this applies just as much to active in that applies just as much the film that win the Oscar for Best Picture DOT flight in the whole history of the office you call he had any comment is that where you thought I called think of a single is shown a picture of that as well on the other hand Schindler's list winter so this isn't shocked a criterion for the place to women of color let's talk about some more films that could have been nominated that didn't get nominated we've already mentioned Stephen you mentioned hustlers one of many movies with a cast of mostly women directed by a woman they got zero nominations this year fair fail to to cross over is you say let's get people to hang on I want to I want to give people a little bit of a listen to hustlers here we go Wall Street guys it's in this country stole from everybody working people lost everything one of these things back to jail the game is rigged and it does not reward people who play by the rules like robbing a bank except get the keys hunter Harrison vulture some people have suggested that Jennifer Lopez campaigning for the nomination too much might have played into her not getting an Oscar nomination for her role in hustlers what what are your thoughts on this film and on the reason why J. lo was overlooked I mean how search has a very special place in my heart because it is based on and your magazine story but outside of that I just enjoyed it I think it has a lot of momentum it's a lot of fine and I mean my favorite teen hustlers as winter for Lawrence's teaching Constance Wu how to strip essentially and it's just such a loving scene between two women who were just you know being friends with one another but at the same time I think the thing with jail is that I think when you're voting for and someone when an Oscar part of the sort of metric is that you have to know that how much they wanted and away and that they need it and with Jello she's already like an icon she is such a form I mean we also heard the Superbowl last week and so I think it actually might have been the opposite that maybe she did and maybe that there's been that shouldn't wanted I'm not for need it to be to sort of solidify her status in Hollywood or or in the world really but it I was really surprised by Jill rocketing nomination because she had gotten a lot of the precursors and her biggest competition is obviously Laura Dern who is the favorite to win for playing a lawyer in marriage story but for a lot of the season especially after hosters career in Toronto they were pretty head like neck and neck but I think the jail thing is that did that character of like a mama bear stripper was not really you know super palatable to a lot of people she dealt drugs and you know sort of engaged or Shoup's worked as sort of a pen been engaged in sex work but at the same time like that's not really a role that we see women especially winning Oscars for I think I wanna push back in Stevens point earlier that that you know the problem about the roles women when the colors spit specifically play in movies is that extends to everyone I don't really think that's true anything Custer's is in some ways an example of that that this was sort of a prickly story about women who are doing bad things and getting caught doing them and that's just not a movie that people see as an Oscar movie I think that's everyone's detriment what we got this voice mail from a listener sharing his opinion about the role that race and gender should or shouldn't play when it comes to Oscar nominations we got several responses along this theme listen IBM injury Oscar is I don't mind or don't care who the with gender of the person is or what color the person is I care about quality in the movie that's being produced I don't care what color they are what gender they are I don't think it matters Linda tweeted this is it just possible that there were no good movies made by people of color or women this year when will the best just be the best without conditions attached Stephen you go first and then April what's your response okay I just briefly want to respond to sing about Jennifer Lopez I we saw she did get nominated the best supporting actress before it could be a thirty two fax one is that movie is very unsentimental about her role and it had a different ending in the retention people would have like that for the cliche narrative the very strength of the film is resistant to that meeting as you said less palatable the second thing is when conformist so let you see the acting when he seems so real that you think this is just what they like the performances of look she made it so real the people football if you'd just what she's like it's one of the reasons Tom Hanks has been so rarely nominate a you got nominated this year but not for many many years he makes it look so easy well certainly we're seeing the film let's let's put J.
Jonathan Pryce, 'The Two Popes'
"There's a movie now that you can see a Netflix. It's called the two popes and it stars my guest today. Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Living Hopkins. Playing guess what the title characters doing doing it brilliantly. So Jonathan Welcome Creek Pope Francis there. You are the big news now. About Pope Francis is his encounter with this woman in the crap out there where he sort of slapped her hand. Yeah Yeah have you been being asked this question now would I please slap really. Okay do I WANNA be grant. At the Golden Globes. There was a lot of Grabbing and pushing polling I was tempted to slap but I feel really sorry for him because people aren't seeing the whole whole sequence video where that particular woman grabbed him very yanked him yanked him and he's He's an Obama scientists bound to hurt. Well let's talk about the two popes in terms of the whole concept of you being offered this to play the The Argentinian Paul. Because we don't see him in the movie being the pope really walk up to that while Anthony Hopkins is playing Pope Benedict German. is you're an Argentinian to Welshman playing these. Yeah somebody must've said. That's that's what we need is to Welshman to do this time for Welsh. Pope was watching and watching. You play this. I kept thinking this other. Argentinian you play. which was one there? You are the dictator in a way. Pope can be a dictator but Pope Francis Go. You is the liberal reform. The one that wants to give them more compassionate look at the church. Did you have any trepidation about pilots. Just just just the usual about whether I wanted to do any of. Is that how you approach them. All Walk Negative. Say No no I thought uh I thought I'd be on a hiding to nothing representing this particular pope. But that didn't last very long. I read the script and won ten. You that Fernando Morella Morella was gonNA be directing it. I definitely wanted to do it and I think it was mainly to do with the fact that I'm not religious logistics. I was brought up in the Christian faith. I went to church until I was a teenager. but I found that this pope was the first pope who I thought was speaking to me and millions like me about issues that what. Mrs Narrowly to do the Church or organized religion but to do with politics and to do with speaking out up folding environment and about the economy about the injustice is the during the world so I he was someone for great empathy towards towards and help. That looked like him a bit and I walk like came definitely Even though you've got ten years on me you could sneak into the the Vatican may be busy and just an take over there and do what you would need to do there. Does that give you a feeling when your plane that that this was what I would do if I win. The pope shoes. I wouldn't be so presumptious to fix that but I'm glad he's doing what he's doing And obviously he's got. There's the whole church and Vatican side of things which he doesn't seem to be able to deal with those conquer but when you're constantly reading lots of stories about how he's disliked within the Vatican because he's a reformer and people don't want that change and I think that's that's why he became pope. He was be made pope in order to make these changes. Otherwise so why choose him because he was in the never been an odd uh-huh latin-american Pope and the film implies of that we don't necessarily know the truth. That benedict wanted Bagogwe uglier to be the next pope because he saw in him things that he could not even he couldn't do he saw in many ways his opposite didn't they and this is it. I didn't mention this in the introduction but benedict was a pope who retired. WHO said I'm not going to do it anymore? And so we have to popes who Are Alive in this world today and they're the clips at the end of the real popes in seeming tab. Having a really terrific time when I sold the first Kata film I was bit disturbed. They were showing the real popes at the end of the phone. Because I thought it would invalidate everything. We've been doing for the previous to house. But what you see in these two men is a is a the committee this just a welcoming the way they they greet each other with great affection and you can see the respect. They have for each other and far from taking away from our performances it they it enhances. It gives an element of truth to what we were doing. It's a really terrific script. Ns Two popes one of these two guys talking to each other which sometimes scares people when they go to the movies. I want that but yet a mirage as a director makes this movie move. You've so beautiful to gorgeous thing to look at. It's also sometimes. Polaris that's going on. Did you all know that that was what was going to happen before he did it. No no what's what's wonderful about. The film is that it It's such a surprise for audiences once don't you don't you. You gotta get them in there and then once they're in that It's a surprise Because it's it's much funnier than I ever expected. And and the audience expect and I think the way we made the film there was no. We didn't have many preconceptions. I don't remember ever talking onto Tony. I'm going to be like this. And he said I'm going to be like this and finance and I want you to do this. That and the whole process was really organic bound because we have the the strength of that script bit underneath his you know holding us up and when I saw it and the way Fernando put it together other because he says his work starts in the editing room he lets us do what we want and encourages us to go certain ways but when I they do what they want to that yeah good directors do that they let you think your your your coming up with the Serving quietly feed and things in your ear they let you think it's your idea So when I saw it I didn't know it was going to be so funny. Rondo humorous. I mean that first scene of your character trying to book his own plane reservations on the fault. Yeah probably apparently did that. That's what he did but it's the post game I saw with a big audience was telluride. And because you I don't know what to expect and that moment the right at the beginning of the phone web the audience laughs as one. The huge wave of laughter. You can feel the audiences sir. I sent me sat by a few. And they're going to enjoy this and the you can feel the audience sitting back and saying this. This is going to be okay you can. It's like Yep okay you know bring it on make happen and yet it also doesn't avoid the controversies that exist within the church. Now the whole thing with the problem priests they're predators that are there and also their histories. Can you talk a little about his history. Go Yeah it back in the seventies in terms of Argentina. It's all mostly. It's all in the film and we didn't shy away from it. The way were applauded and thanked thanked by the people people in Bonus Iris. When they sold the film we had a screening because they that fear was this is going to be a whitewash elma? Crossover Haggi Auger fear Goglia. Because he is still seen as a divisive character in Argentina because of his perceived involvement involvement with the cardinals. I've found on Youtube footage of him being interrogated by or question by his peers fellow cardinals about his involvement with the colonels. And you see a very different man the man you see smiling on the balcony. And he's made pope he's he's he's very doer he's quite angry. I think he's impatient. He's drumming his fingers on the table. And I put that image together with talking to a Jesuit priest and bonus. Who worked with him? I who said they didn't like him. He was Very always stays. Ah Stay by himself. He didn't mix I he was he never smiled. I'm when they saw him on the balcony. This smiling pope. They didn't recognize him because he was smiling. Didn't person yeah. But then you do get the other side of him where he is in the film you see him Saying mass and the kind of the slum township areas and and the other side's members very popular so it's not a a a bio-pic it's not a huggy overview of this man. It's a it's a Watson Study of him and I think we've been fair to him because we all respect him and admire him And we had a screening in Rome three or four weeks ago were members of the Vatican Cambridge theory and They said they liked liked. That enjoyed it And a particular Cardinal WHO's a friend? WHO's a friend of Love Benedict and of Francis He'd liked the phone very much. Fernando the director said. Do you think we were too hard on the church. And he said you went hot enough woo but he also said that he thought France would like the film and he wanted the DVD to take them to show him the film. I love so That review see that. Yeah well what do starts right. Yeah that'd be good and also from France's family in Argentina. Fernando got an email to say that they'd seen it. They enjoyed the film and they liked. What we've done Representing their uncle. That was that was really nice. Colon uncle Uncle Horace to two years. How were you and Anthony Hopkins together? You know. You haven't made anything or done anything before. Really WE'VE BEEN ON A. We're both on the recording of under milk. Wood the Dylan Thomas Poem that was produced by George Martin. Twenty seven years ago the Beatles producer and Tony was first voice. I was second voice and you come twenty seven years later. We're in Rome and the coal sheet has You know you're rated as the importance in the film. The number and I was number one and Tony was number two so it was my revenge after twenty seven audit your greet each other even morning with morning number one number two. It went on from there but we. It's interesting the what happens to the two men in the film is reflected. Did what happened to Tony. And I because you know in the film you see two men sort of sniffing around each other like a pair of dogs like where each other Eh Wary of Tony but I was. I was I I'm an aura of Tony Hopkins. I'm a great admirer of his. So I'm not played late into those early scenes and as you see the pope's relationship growing so my friendship with Tony grew and It is the equivalent of both of us. All of US tangoing together by the end of it. That's a good way to put out.

"On the Bubble" Oscar Contenders
"Oscar season is getting a little narrow. They're just eighty two days between now and the Ninety Second Annual Academy Awards. Amanda how are you feeling about that. It's feeling very close. All of a sudden it's getting tight where the time went given the shortened season and we need to talk about some on the bubble double Oscar contenders. Are you ready to do that. Okay let's go to the big picture big picture in the big picture. Do you know what I mean. Okay Amanda on Friday. The Oscars announced their producers there to women who. I'm not terribly familiar with. We're going to talk about them very briefly there Stephanie Allen and Lynette Hal Taylor. They both worked in film and television over the years. They are unseen that award show production but they have a lot of experience in the field of managing talent. What do we think about the the addition Asian of these two women? Well managing talent is a major part of the actual awards show and also everything leading up to it if you conceive of the academy and the Oscars is just a bunch of egos in a room. People who have experienced that are worthwhile. I think it's also possibly to the Oscars benefit to have people who aren't Kinda in the machine. I mean yeah giving a fresh look. That was my reaction as well. First timers sometimes can be perilous but sometimes can bring something fresh. They'll have a couple of decisions in front of them particularly some things we've talked about in in the past whether there should be a host how long the show should be the way that the show is paced where musical performances go. How many montages? There are a lot of different things that go into making and constructing constructing an Oscars telecast will keep a very close watch on that and inside of that telecast. Maybe there will be some of these movies. We're GONNA talk about here. Maybe not the first movie we're GonNa talk about about opened on Friday. It's called four versus Ferrari. It had a very solid box office performance over the weekend made thirty one million dollars in America now. I don't want us to lose our heads about that because that actually if you look back at say this time last year fantastic beasts to open to about sixty eight million dollars And this time the year before. That movies like Thor Ragnarok dominating at the box office this is a significant step down even though thirty one million dollars ours is considered a success. Do you think it's box office is related at all to. It's award season strength. I think it has to be because we had talked a bit about Ford versus Ferrari in the sense of. It's coming a bit later in Oscar season and the reason that is on the bubble is because we have been talking about these news for a while. And I think you and I and in many Oscar prognosticators sense of not who the locks are kind of the front runners and there is not as much room room the closer you get to in a shortened aboard season as you as you mentioned for new big movies to elbow their way and so I think anything helps oops doing well at the box office especially. It's like a proportionate success it's a movie for adults and adults went to see it and it made like a solid amount of money and it seems like it's not going to be a disaster. Mr and everyone walked out and was like hey great movie remember when they made movies with movie stars so I think that it couldn't have gotten a best picture nominee money without this success. If it had bombed it would have been difficult for it to pull up. Yeah I'm curious. I'm really curious about this. I honestly have no idea. It does seem like it's doing doing well with older viewers and and as we know the academy for all of its efforts is older. It's mature immature group of voter. I truly maybe not in their decision making but just the linear chronology and the other thing about it is that it's very male the academies the academy Um you still sixty eight percent men and this is a movie about men and dying masculinity and it's not an assault on that idea. It's nostalgic check about that idea and so I can certainly see a world in which is an automated. It's funny that you characterize it the way you did because I agree with you that it has been kind of lagging behind the marriage. Stories reason the parasites and the once upon a time in Hollywood's in the Irishman's the sort of like Laki seeming movies that we've been talking about a lot but I feel like a movie like little women which the public is not gonna see for another another about six weeks somehow has more momentum than a movie like Ford Versus Ferrari even though it premiered back in telluride and this is a little bit about the bubble of love film discourse as well as the people who are tracking. This are allowed more excited about gut movie written directed by Greta. Gerwig starring Florence View and search Ronin and Timothy Charlemagne and a lot of internet younger friendly names and I think there is also the little women is geared towards women and there are a lot of women excited for this because we don't get that many movies which were going to have to talk more about in this episode later on and I'm really upset but I kind of think that because Ford is like the stately. Traditional almost throwback type of Oscar movie. It's not no one is advocating vacating for it seems in
Noah Baumbach Digs Into A 'Marriage Story'
"It's the opening scene in the film ahead of a screening of marriage story at the telluride film festival this year and in front of a live audience. I spoke with driver. Just after Martin Scorsese presented him with a career. Honor driver was at telluride for marriage story and another upcoming movie the report in which he plays a US Senate investigator looking into this as use of torture after nine. Eleven driver explain what his relationships are like with directors. He's worked with multiple times and that list includes Jim Jarmusch and marriage story. Filmmaker Noah Baumbach. There's there's something that we are way of working. Our work ethic is similar in that. They don't take it for granted that we're making a movie. The has the potential to reach a plays that as far away and either give language to a culture. That's completely different than ours. And someone's paying a lot of money for us to be here right right now for this amount of time to do this thing that will last forever and labeled the feeling and how powerful that is why why take that for granted why show up and kind of wing it you know or not. Consider what it is. You're saying and that no detail is too who small now. Obviously there's traps and all of that that you can get so worked up in details that you're trying to control everything and don't leave room for you know something. That's more abstract with those people. They're brilliant writers and create a set an environment onset where you're free to You know all those things that hope from from people you're free to get it wrong and you're free to explore and but really don't take it for granted if I was trying to summarize summarize it which is kind of hard. They very much curated the people that they want to work with in front and behind the camera and you feel like as much as everything thing is both has meaning and as meaningless. You don't don't take it for granted and finding people that have your same work ethic gets a rare thing. I think I just repeated myself three times the best show of hands. How many people in telluride for the atom driver double feature marriage story and the report? Wow okay. That's about half a house as quick question without spoiling either film. I WanNa ask you about Dan. Jones and CIA's post nine eleven detention and interrogation program which a lot of people would call torture. They call it extreme rendition of the things. What would you say about that film going into it without giving it away about why? That movie spoke. Oh Q.. And why you thought it was something you wanted to do. I mean the topic is was something that I you know embarrassing. They didn't know anything about and I mean the original report is over six thousand thousand pages. The redacted version is just over five hundred and our script with one hundred thirty. How do you how do you tell that story as economically as possible astle but not without leaving the humanity out of it so that all of those things just an opportunity to potentially bring a topic to light that has been in the dark and that I was inspired by you? Hope there's people like that in a room alone toiling away for six years with no support trying to trying to make a difference and that relationship with something that you've grown up with thinking that you can trust and suddenly you know you have to not only do you feel like you're trying to make a moral judgment for the country but internally as well they all those the reasons why I want to do it you were recently doing. Burn this and I'm wondering when you're doing it play and then going. Lean into film or television. What are the things that you might miss retain as an actor? WHO's doing a show in front of a different audience every night when you're not able oh to replicate that on a film set yeah? It's a totally different thing. It's I working with Mila. For example he likes to do a lot of takes and that actually feels more familiar to working on out of play because the lines of the lines. There's no there's no Improv. This is what it is blocking it out. But the intention can be a million different things and he he structured the day smartly so we have enough time to explore all the possibilities of what it could be not just arbitrarily but I mean sometimes and and then sometimes you have to rebel against him and then just do it the way you WanNa do it just to shock yourself and shock the system and then maybe come up with something better but you know it's like a whole run of a rehearsal truncated into a day. which is I rare with? Someone like Noah and you're also rehearsing you know if you can be as much as you can before you start just being prepared to give yourself time to explore all the options and when you don't do that with a soderbergh then I tend to have regret of like you can't help but go home and imagine I had all these ideas that now but then again. Maybe those were bad ideas that I don't know oh anything. The tribute is a sham. Last question I think there are a lot of things that different people will take away from marriage story one being. If you're thinking about going into family law you might reconsider it. But what was the thing that you treasure about making this film with knowing scarlet again. That could be a long answer that I know I should keep short. I mean this movie is hard to. I feel hard to talk about because it's very personal and it was personal. The people who made a collectively and we talked about it a couple of years before we started making those conversations tens of what it's about or what will retry into are still happening but how love can transition and how that can be violent set not not physically violent but an internal violent thing of you know someone kinetically where you know. It's everything your way. Oh you were in a room together a second nature then suddenly to divorce that from yourself That could be painful but maybe it's just transitioning into something different. I thought that was a beautiful idea. This is not a sham. Adam coming up on the frame the writer and director of marriage story Noah Baumbach on capturing the heartbreak of divorce Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn. Our next guest is filmmaker Noah Bam back he wrote and directed indie darlings like Margot at the wedding and the squid and the okay all his stories often feature realistic and flawed characters and it holds true for his latest film marriage. Story Charlie and Nicole played by Adam driver ever and Scarlett Johansson are a couple struggling with the early stages of their divorce bombeck painstakingly mapped out the process of their separation. And that makes watching watching marriage story. especially if you're married a bit like watching a horror film. Here's how bombeck described the movie when we recently spoke at the Middleburg Film Festival. I've a friend who said the movie gets divorced so you don't have to which I think is a nice message from married couples relatively Glib but I can see it Netflix has another movie. That's planet Middleburg called two popes. Your movie is called Marriage Story. They both seem like obvious. Titles but almost inevitable bowl. Did you play around with other things to call this. I didn't coordinate with Fernando Morass. I I It was it was the working title from the beginning. The the idea that I'd come up with something else but like pseudo you know Phil Collins but something about the movie resisted more more specific or poetic titles things like the squid and the whale. Didn't there was no squid in the whale to be found and so I I kept coming back to it. I liked it as its in. Its simplicity. I want to ask you a little bit. Because Adam drivers said that this was a collaborative process and hobbies. You're the writer the director. But how would you describe the process of putting the story together and before we started filming what you were talking to due. At least you're actors about it from the onset. It was important for me to know who the actors who are some of the actors were in the movie. I wanted To Have Charleena Nicole in my head is inspiration but also because I wanted to bring the actors in to the process a bit I Adam. I've I've been friends with now. When so when I brought him sort of some of these ideas he would say like? Oh these are things I might. He he was interested in playing a theater director. That's you know as I remember it. That's how that came into the movie. You have often had characters who you are very articulate. That could be writers. They could be theater directors that could be. They are very capable expressing themselves and talking about. Maybe maybe what they're feeling or what they're feeling about somebody else. Is that something that you think is a pattern. That you like articulate characters who happen to have particular jobs does one beget the other. I don't know I I don't think about it like that. Quite the artistic the fact that they were artists and and creative and professional partners in this movie was I thought important and also narrative interesting because there was sort of more at stake.
'The Irishman' Is (Almost) Here
"Was a movie eight premiering a New York on Friday. You and I were in Los Angeles. We did not see this movie. We're going to see this movie very soon but it is without a doubt the movie news of the weekend and and then we called the Irishman in the Irish premiered to what I would describe as one hundred percent approval rating Hosanna. 's from on high what'd you make of the the reaction to Martin Scorsese's latest cinematic achievement excited. I mean you have to take the festival grain of salt. There is something something to this movie premiering at the New York Film Festival like on a Friday. It's it's a self selecting crowd self selecting group of people bowl but it looks like a lot of fun the all the images of Pacino Deniro and it's crazy up on the stage have an end at the party's he's having the time of their lives indicated to me that this is they're having a great time and that I think infuses the movie itself that it is something like it worked. You know we it's three hours. We didn't see it for a long time. We you know it could be a rehash of some things maybe but it seems like they will pay off on this one. It's not only three hours three hours and twenty minutes right okay. I was trying to be kind. It's based on the two thousand four memoir called. I heard you paint houses by Charles Brand and it stars Al Pacino and Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci and it uses de aging technology. Ag To make these men seen younger and that has been a big talking point of the movie up until people saw the movie was clouded in a series of your butts. I think all leading to last Friday the Airbus include the technology they include does Robert Deniro still care about acting can not go over the top in a performance format. Does Mardi still have it can Joe Patchy still speak we haven't seen him speak publicly in many years and it seems like all all of these things were proven to be false alarms at best and I think a lot of people seem to think that this is the front runner for the best picture and There's something kind of amazing to me about that now. Obviously the we're taking a mountain of Salt Raider point given the festival atmosphere and being New York and everything but still this is a this is the disruption right and we have not seen yet and we're very much looking forward to seeing it but we have not seen it yet. You know I I will say when the Oscars aired. What Day was that in two thousand eighteen February twenty something February yes there was a commercial for the Irishman debuting in theaters and on that flex this fall and I think at that that moment you and I considered it to be the two thousand Nineteen Oscar Front runner for and these things do it is a little horse racing it goes back and forth and so the questions as you you just mentioned you know would it live up to that. Oscar Front runner status and I think the answer is yes. It's definitely yes. I wonder if it completely resets the expectation of the Oscars this year because I was assuming that it was absolutely going to be a player now what this means is there are almost certainly going to be due to net flicks movies nominated for best picture need even three net flicks movies so you've got the Irishman you've got marriage story and you've got the two popes which premiered telluride to to acclaim and that signals something significant changing and a lot of the column writing and the tweeting and the sort of not that not the day of reaction but the Saturday Sunday reaction action I think to the Irishman including the Columbine Owen Gleiberman that from variety who reflected on I think a lot of the anxiety that Roma produced last year about the idea of a streaming streaming service releasing what may be considered by many people to be the best movie of the year with that means for moviemaking what that means for the future of the Oscars but the Irishman is kind of a mega sized version of that question or problem or whatever you WANNA call it. You could make the case that it's nothing that that this is a completely overstated situation. I wrote about Roma in that context last year and I think the question here is more like this is a one hundred sixty million dollar movie. No studio other than Netflix is going to pay for this movie. It's the kind of movie that I think. Actually we could do pretty good business. If you put in a movie theaters got great reviews. That's got a lot of brand. Names is a gangster movie could it couldn't. I don't know if it's GONNA be a five hundred dollar five hundred million dollar movie but it could be a hundred million dollar movie and so with that the fact that we're never really going to know that because even though it's going into theaters is not going to the big theater chains. I think we do have three or four months. It's now of Netflixing Zaidi to to to detangle with. Yes for sure I mean I don't want to downplay the narrative of that in last year's Oscars and in every conversation that anyone has about the movie industry right now you know I think ultimately people in vote for Roma because it was a two and a half hour foreign film and they felt like values were being shoved down their throat and they just wanted to vote for it. The the familiar feel good like Virtue Signal Inc.. Except Not Green Book. I think those voters will not think twice about voting for the Irishman instead of something else. I don't think Netflix will come into the equation that way for them. I just I kind of think the position that the Irishman has in this in this Oscar Season Zain will be less about streaming platforms and more about a gen values and it's like I said it's like can you Oscar. Bait and a lot of ways is an interesting thing. I could sense that last year at some point. Alfonzo Koran just got sick of having to answer questions about Netflix that after a while and he was in a very similar situation. I don't think that there was necessarily a company that would have paid as much money for his film. Netflix did to distribute at even though they didn't originally only finance the movie and I wonder if Scorsese at some point now he's probably not going to do a ton of press because he's Martin Scorsese and doesn't have to but I wonder if at some point he's he's just kind of like enough. The movie is the movie yeah. Let's just think about it that way but for for our purposes we do kind of have to we have to tangle with it in three nominees unease from that studio would be it'd be a fascinating test of the academy because marriage stories definitely one of the best movies. I've seen this year and it fit checks a lot of boxes for for the kinds of movies that Oscar likes if not best picture at least every category nomination wise and the Irishman is right down the middle new Oscar Bait so and old Oscar Bait. I mean I think that's the I it's kind of the exception in so many ways because it is on Fox because Scorsese and De Niro and Pacino and PECI. It's it is all of the old things there. I mean there's just you know I was thinking about. How excited my dad's? GonNa be just to see the Irishman and they're just his dad incor- yeah but it is also a cinematic triumph apparently so anybody who actually cares about movies we'll all be interested and they are doing theaters and that's like ages kind of four quadrant for lack of a better word so it seems like elastic section as opposed to like the future of movies. If that makes any
A Review of Stephen King's Best Films
"Are you looking forward to at the toronto international film festival all this year as the the twenty first year. I think i'm covering it because i've been covering it. Since i was nineteen i mean i'm kind of looking forward to it ending but <hes> you know when when when you're on the ground in toronto we see a lot of stuff very early so today. When i was on my way to record i saw these people from out of town. I'm kind of showing up in toronto and they're very excited and and ready to get going but but we've been watching stuff here for a while. We've also all had our is kind of on reports. It's coming out of telluride including your tweets and what people are saying from venice so it doesn't feel like something starting. It feels like as you said like festival. Season is already deeply deeply underway underway adam. Thank you for being tweets. I really appreciate that that means the world to me. <hes> what's what's what's on your radar or what have you seen that you can sort of hint about that is is most exciting. You put waves on my radar the trae schultz film that was a really like persuasive piece. It's not like i wasn't looking forward to seeing it but i've now rearranged want to watch it. You seem quite blown away by that. I was and i have maybe some regrets about doing so because now i think invariably people will see to me like it's not that good. What what are you doing. How could you do that which you know that's the that's the trickiness with festival coverage in general right the minute that you get excited about something to communicate that and then you tell people something is great and then they insist upon telling you your opinion is not quite exactly what it should be. Which is why we're all bracing for for joker to be the start of the actual. You know second american revolution elision with with insurrection and panic in the streets. There's a certain hyperbole in festival season. That's like i guess it's fun to instigate it though i try not to. It's it's kind of fun to read it but it gets wearying in social media become such an echo chamber that stuff and i find that people tend to share the dumb dumb takes way more generously than kind of smart subtle ones no question so it becomes hard with the movie like joker where it's not even a question of people saying whether it's good or bad ads there's sort of saying like is this can actually change the way that we watch movies and incite armed rebellion. It just becomes like really tiring but some of the ones that i'm looking looking forward to here are ones that already have a bit of a reputation which sam great like the softies uncut gems can't wait to see it and <hes> looking forward to know bombecks marriage story one thing we've both seen that i'm going to write about in my first tiff dispatch which is just excellent is parasite the bunk joon-ho film the one the palm door can which is which is really good stuff. I think brilliant played incredibly well. I didn't mention this in the podcast earlier this week but <hes> i went to the third screening of that movie at telluride and it was a nine a._m. Screening and six hundred people were turned away from that screening which is just a an extraordinary thing once you've seen the movie and you know what the contents of it aren't just how kind of warped and beautiful perform strange it is <hes>. There's really the energy around. This movie is so fascinating and so great for bong right. It's it's it's great for bong and i think that <hes> you know without belaboring a parallel to these movies that might be worth talking about more later when more people have seen both of them but in the same way that alfonso koran i think a lot of credit for are going back home and making a movie you know in his original cultural context with roma. It's very interesting to see bond do that. Because snow pearson okposo were very credible english rush limbaugh almost kinda hits. You know yes and well parasite. I think has the best commercial prospects in north america of any of his korean films so far. It's very much a korean film and <hes> it's made something like eighty five million dollars in south korea already too which is like you know very very sizable sizable hit. I thought i thought i read that. It's the biggest hit in the in the country's history. Is that overstating things the i'd have to get a double check on that but just off the top of my head. It sounds like a big amount of money like the the top grossing films in south. Korea can't approach china dollar for dollar but like it's a big amount i it's a big amount of money and when when you consider that some of the audience that it's going to reach north america is not just that kind of reading reviews you know art house audience but maybe even something somewhat mainstream i i think it could be a kind of <hes> across kind of crossover hit and because you have american critics may be on their way to toronto listening. I just wanna stump super fast for a two really good interesting. Toronto films one is called an at thirteen thousand feet by cacique revenge ski. Starring derrick campbell and one is called white lie bye bye calvin. Thomas and yona lewis starring casey role <hes> i think they're actually both going to get a fair amount of attention and i just wanted to say their names on the pod and i think that's about

The country is offering up its military, but the US wants more. Remember President Trump plans to hit Mexico with five percent tariffs on all goods starting as soon as Monday. That's because he wants Mexico to help stop people from coming into the US illegally. Mexico, does not wanna see those tariffs happen. The Wall Street Journal says Mexican officials are pledging to send six thousand national guardsmen to its border with Wata Malla that's an entry point for a lot of Central American migrants as they make their way through Mexico and to the US, but US officials are pushing for more, they want to see changes to the asylum rules. The New York Times says they won't migrants to have to seek asylum in the first foreign country, they enter after leaving their homes, for example, Guatemalans would apply for asylum in Mexico rather than continuing onto the US at this point.
