"You know some things you know the references. And that's probably. What this is good for references. It's just a show your culture grant. Yeah! I mean I was looking at it and. Because! It's like A. It's a pulp film. It's over the top, but I don't think he's supposed to be taking seriously and. You know I could see. The Peel if the dialogue was better, the dialogue for me was really off putting throughout. I think I could be. On the watch for myself I felt similar. Feelings but Maybe. It wouldn't have stuck around so long if it was just too serious. Just became more average it like it loses its. Special characteristics its uniqueness. But okay. Color Palino's. We talked about this before with supper. Things intention is is important. Was this intended? They said let's make some iconic poorly written dialogue so eventually it will become a film that people remember. I. Don't think so I WANNA, try. And! It's the same. You can have the same argument. On any piece of writing. Authors intent. Really that important if everyone else takes it a different way. I. Guess it I, mean. I don't know I. Guess Pieces of Writing Different From. Things people say in real life, and that differs from actions, and you can go down the rabbit hole there. San It's. You know movie. Film movies film is an art form so You don't necessarily maybe even know what you're making. Your expressing yourself. And you know. So it was, so, it was Walter Hill here. What you'll get mess with the orphans. That about wraps it up for me though. Yep Same. So I got the guy was The guy from the rogues or whatever his voice was so and he was just whining. No, no! Really. kind of like. I'm assuming he dies two at the end. I mean the. Best ending for him at that point. Like a quick death would be merciful. I don't think they were very happy with.

"It's going to bomb so hard at this guy's overreaching go back to the baseball field Costner, and then it's like this massive success and it wins all the Oscars and then you have like a unforgiven wins again. A couple years later this year. I believe it's very weird to have like two westerns win best picture in such quick. Succession in a time period where the westerns. Had seen dead for a while. And then there is this nineties boom and dances, wolves gets credit for being the first time that it was like we're going to cast Americans and we're going to be culturally respectful, and we're going to try to do this. Right. Even if the move is about the white guy, who's the best everything like that. That was like a shift and they were in that sort of boom, all sort of lesser films that come out of it. Walter Hill's drama. Oh, I was on that Wikipedia page. And they were saying that the studio was fighting him so hard to be. Like you got a green light, if you like Caskey for Sutherland, I'm like, paying him, bro. And we'll we'll say we can't do that. What did it's, it's a fucking colander? We can't do that. And it was such a battle to get west duty to play the title role in the film, and then the movie bomb. But it is kind of crazy thing where it's like he's in the new world and a new world he isn't like any super significant part, you know, he's in allowing the New Hampshire but he's not like you know Pocahontas father. He's not the chief, you know, he's one of these guys were like he does tons of work, but anytime there's any native American film. They have to bring him in, because it's sort of, like I think he does a lot of like, like consultant work. I think he liked coaches lot of the other actors to. I mean he's a fascinating guy. He's got one of the great faces in the history of movies. Got an incredible face, especially in his voice incredible. Yeah. They knew the own away on with me. I just gonna move to Russell means for you. Wanna talk means say, I was just fascinated to see that this was Russell means his first movie. I mean, I just sort of feel like throughout the nineties, Russell means was just the face of native America in movies, and he had never acted before. And he has a huge role. He was known as an Indian activist as a, you know, really, he was part of the American Indian movement. Right. Aim percent. Percent and actually was quite controversial within that movement. And led this splinter group where the name later was issuing press releases at some point saying, don't listen to anything. Russell means says because Russell means had some statement that he made out of it was at a press conference or what? But when he did this split off of the aim movement. He wanted to eradicate all treaties ever made between any native American tribe, in the US like from here on those are all void in the rest of the people are saying, wait, wait, wait a second. We need to negotiate right? Right. Right. Right. Right. Right anyway. So he's, he's known for being this kind of controversial and occasionally violent, he spent time in jail. We figure I mean bending over Alcatraz at one point like they would do all these sort of occupation of it. I think it's still happens on Thanksgiving Day, tribes takeover Alcatraz who sees the Mayflower a replica of the Mayflower. I'm just sort of looking at it just to me. That's an incredible career arc. Right. I mean he's I don't know quite how old he is. When he's no when he was he died in two thousand twelve I think, but when he starred in this movie he had to be in his forties. Born in thirty nine he would have been like a over fifty dad's age. Right. But that's like the Michael Mann thing is like Dennis Farina was just an ex cop who you like hired as a consultant, you know, and then had onset doing, like a small role, and then he becomes like his muse, like Michael man. So loves the people who've just like lived in this fucking world, you know, and he like loves if he can find someone who's like, oh, you're like an actual ex-con your thief. You're a cop, you know, if you listen to his director's commentaries, which are delightful..

"I think i really think this that the actors and directors there's there is a until we say a natural tension between the two crafts actors tend to believe that they can play anything they there's they're not often given enough of an opportunity for the breath of their tower of cocaine directors tend to believe that if you haven't seen the person do it before they can't do it bright and therefore they don't want any fucking mistakes legal out there because the but because if you make a mistake and gusty the price you're gonna pay is very high yet so if you've got somebody can't do the part in a reasonable way in the way you want to get them out and i think in it you know the the really the truth is they're both they're both wrong actors camp play just anything you know he added they do have limitations i think the right they can probably play a lot more than they're given a chance to write a one time dry and the directors wrong there they are too limiting quite often although there is another is he again were targeting cliches yes my fault but dub since i'm doing the dark in here but so many young directors now want to cast against the type so they'll in in my estimation often foolishly cast so far against the type than the part lacks credibility and right given examples yet i don't want to hurt anybody's feelings but to be that part of that is at an ironic position that they're taking i am letting they know that that's the defense anything i forgot via so how did you like it and also like data one just light obviously we can't go movie a movie by beaded work with the prior and you know you work with murphy were prior on brewster's millions how is that experience well it was mixed i probably i was i think my own arrogance i'd gotten.
