"Louis Vehd and Anna's l'Homme And, uh, Vogosca and nothing Sony on my arts our companions today. The film reminded me of very much of the excellent French Oscar nominated film Limit problem. But what do you think of Anna? What do you think of when you think of Danish cinema? Well, I answered the think of the Dogma movement, which is a movement that originated in the night early 19 nineties and has garnered some very acclaimed directors, namely large contraire, who has directed everything from Melancholia two Nymphomaniac and Thomas Vinterberg, who recently picked up the Oscar for his very excellent film, another round, which was released in cinemas just this year. And so it's really funny that they mentioned kitchen sink dramas because I instantly think of rebellious young filmmakers who want to attack the filmmaking form. It made me think of Spanish audiences. I'm I hail from Spain and I remember everyone being always consistently critical of Spanish cinema, saying that it only was Federal bolivar films or films about the civil war and that pretty much not true, but this image that we often build up of a national cinema when we're from the country we live in that country kind of is often at odds with statistically the amount of things that are made in the in the filmmaking community there. You just made me think of the way that everybody thinks of India as being a country. That brings about Bollywood movies. There were 1000 films made on average in India every year. 300 of those only what we would call Bollywood cinema Masala cinema, and the rest is in different languages and is often what they call parallel Cinema Art cinema. It's very different. Thank you both so much. You're listening to the answer with me. Niki Beattie, the Scottish actor singer, writer and filmmaker Alan Cumming is probably best known for his film roles in Emma Goldeneye, the Spy Kids trilogy and Son of the Mask. His role in the TV series. The good wife saw him nominated for three Emmy Awards. And You may also have seen him recently in the Apple TV, plus musical comedy series Mega Dune on Broadway. In fact, on both sides of the Atlantic, he's been the master of ceremonies in stage productions of Cabaret, and he writes his own shows, too. In his latest he reflects on aging sex and death again through Song, Cabaret and his trademark wit. The BBC's Janice Forsyth asked him how he came to develop. The show, which is called Alan Cumming is not acting his age. I knew I wanted to do another show it kind of I've done and finished. My last one was called legal Immigrant. She didn't actually do it. In Britain, it was more about being a It was 10 years since I became a citizen of America and said, I was trying to point out how the notion of Immigration had changed somewhat over that time. And, uh, I told that around which is quite scary and certain places West Palm Beach just like you know, it's a spit from Mar a Lago. Practically a riot, the theater really these kind of Yes, all these sort of rich West Palm Beach sites were horrified about my I was saying, if I say I said the thing about you know, if you if you are anti immigration, you're anti American, because the whole sort of America is based on the notion of immigration that didn't go down well, and there was people started shouting at me saying things like, you know? Yes, one man said, Go back to where you came from, and where New York and then other people started charging at them so that people started shooting each other in the auditorium. I don't know. I gotta come them down. Go on with the show and later get on with the show, And I said, this is the show. It's called an incoming legal immigrant you might have. It was kind of scary. Yes, all these sort of, you know, crazy Trumpy millionaires or shooting each other. So it was time to do a new show. And I, uh, decided to do something a little less contention. I've got a new book coming out another memoir, and I think the fact that I was working on that so much during pandemic and looking back at my younger self, and I think that kind of prompted me to sort of start thinking about aging. And so that was really the basis for this show, And it's kind of you my musings on getting older and what that means. And, you know, death aging sex. That's our stuff. The usual All the light stuff quit. It's hilarious. Of course, yes, and, you know, I think it's crazy that we've all as a culture decided that something that is inexorable. Yeah, it's a negative thing. We've made it a negative thing because other cultures in Australia and the indigenous people of Australia It's very revered thing to be held down to be growing older, But the thing is obviously the business that you're in the business show. We see so many people, and I have to say, I find incredibly off putting from watching a particularly good quite often. It's female actors. So it's actresses and I think I cannot believe in your character because you your face and head looks like a completely perfect egg. There's no expression. I can understand the pressure. People feel that they are under to do it. But Do you reflect on that In the show? I do. I have a whole section, however all section about sort of our bodies sagging and gravity and stuff like that. Then I sing a song. We just couldn't want to see you. It's about plastic surgery. You know, I'm not. I'm not a fan of. I mean, I just think it's really weird know that if you don't have Botox, so if you don't have fellow and all those things you become the freak, you become the person who looks weird. That's how far we've got. And I always say, I'm going to be the only person in American television not to have had Botox. You know, I my role model for aging is is Samuel Beckett. Want me to and I do it. I just feel it's like my face is my tool. You know, my face is is what I do is in my job is expressed things. Alan Cumming..

"A nice Oscars that respected the pandemic. And I thought in that regard holistically went really, really well. This is Regina King opening the Oscars. I know that a lot of you people with home want to reach for your remote. You feel like Hollywood is preaching to you. But as a mother of a black son, I know the fear that so many live with and no amount of fame or fortune changes that Okay? Yes, Nicely said nicely said, and very quickly, you know, perfect to sing statement. All right now to the gold's well one of your favorite films in mind, too. On the star of that was Frances McDormand, and she wins four Nomad Land. Nomad land are as expected, won many awards, including best film and Best director, and Frances McDormand won for best. Actress. It was so many of the awards this year were predictable by all the other awards leading up to them and also because rather than be in February, these awards were pushed back too late April, it meant that the award season was just so long. There was so much time for so much echo chamber Internet chatter. Really? These were the most predictable awards in history, and there were very few surprises. Now the word one or two surprises, but they were really very few surprises. So the joy and excitement came or with how everyone was handling the situation, the new way of doing it. Rather than the actual awards themselves. But there was some very good speech is this year They didn't play anyone off. The 32nd rule was just thrown out the window and indeed for the 1st 3rd or so I was getting very nervous that the award ceremony was going to go in for 7.5 half to nine hours, because the first few people were taking five minutes each. Where normally you're allowed to take 30 seconds and that became Kind of worrisome like I wondered how they were going to course correct that live. You know your your friend and mine, Thomas Vinterberg, winning for best international film for another round. It was wonderful that he won and we were so glad that he won and he had this terribly sad story to tell in his speech about the fact that his 19 year old daughter was killed in a car accident four days into the shooting of that film. He didn't even get to that until about 3.5 minutes in his speech, and it was really long speech, and you're feeling this on the one hand joy for him and sadness for him. On the other hand thinking, like, Oh, my gosh, If the speeches or go on this long it's going to take Forever. But somehow the ceremony managed to accelerate as it went along, and it still went only a little bit over three hours. Yes. Frances McDormand. Marvelous, marvelous Actress. This is she's a recess, We said when the gong for best actress for her role in nomad lunches. She's in our bowl. We give this one to our wolf. Oh, what was a letter, But she isn't on both. Frances McDormand is famously an oddball, and she's married to Ethan Coen, who is one of the Coen brothers and you cut away from her to him sitting.
