"You know, hopefully what will happen if I can write the script for this film is you start the film and you get the hardcore Bowie fans coming out, then you sort of, as a moves forward, you get the cinephiles and you get the kind of IMAX boys who kind of comment are like, oh, wow, it's a spectacle. And then by the third week, everyone's found out that this is the best film to take acid to in decades. And we get all the stoners coming in. And we did just keep this shit going and then you got your grandma coming in because it's life affirming and she liked Bowie and she's in love with him again. And so I think it's for everybody. You know, we got an R rating in the states. I fucked the MPA. Like, how dare they give a film with one second and 17 frames of nudity split over three shots. No profanity and no violence. And they dared to give us an R, they scared of David Bowie's crotch. What the hell pure mechanical world are we living? I appealed it and we got a PG-13. I don't care about some PG-13. I don't know why it's not PG. Well, you just made the best possible pitch for it. The 6 phases of attendees of your film. Brett, we have to wrap, but I end every episode of the show by asking filmmakers. What's the last great thing they've seen? Have you seen any great films lately? Yes, I have fucked it. I'll shit. It was only on the athlete where we think it's going to be on the shutter today. Speak no evil. Yeah, man. This is a great you're the second person to recommend this. Okay, we can't talk about it. We can not say anything about it. The only thing I'm going to say is if you're freaked out by horror violence, don't see it, but if you're open to that, do not read anything, don't talk to anybody. After you see Munich's daydream, go watch speaking of evil, coming up in the fall. Later this year, corsage is amazing. I saw that out of camp. James gray has made a masterpiece with his new film Armageddon time. Triangle of sadness is quite funny. Werner Herzog has an amazing documentary. I don't know if it's going to come this way on the same subject as fire of love. That begins with one of my favorite lines in the history of film, where he says that he, I'm stealing his line that had been several books made about the crowd. There have been several documentaries I make one myself 13 years ago. In this film, there is no story. We just look at images, I'm like, oh my God.

"Is there MO. That's a great great description. It's funny because canals guard is on certain levels of the perfect comparison and I had mentioned Jeff dyer earlier. He's sort of a, it's almost like Jeff dyer with the humor bleached out, but and I know the humor is very important to you Dwight, but career is more funny and I don't know if Molly will agree with this and she has a great sense of humor, but like a Werner Herzog sort of unintentional funny where he just takes things so seriously and gets so irritated by things. I guess it's like a European Larry David or something. Yes, yes. He is both intentionally and unintentionally funny, which is a rare combination in people. That is also very well said, okay, so getting back to yoga, the book, there is one wrinkle of it that's really interesting because he's obviously, you know, he has a cult in the U.S. for sure, but he's a giant, I think writer celebrity in France. And this book was published there a couple years ago. And it was published to not just raves and analysis, but to controversy in a way that involves speaking of canal scar that involved him and his ex-wife, what was that all about? So his ex-wife is herself a journalist and it came out that they divorced before the book was published in France. And around the time of the book's publishing, his ex-wife published an article in the French edition of Vanity Fair, excoriating him for what she said was a failure to adhere to a contract that they had signed and this is such an interesting kind of unprecedented contract, but in apparently one of the terms of their divorce was that he signed a piece of paper agreeing to run past her any appearances that she would make in his writing. So this is a woman who had appeared many, many times in his writing intimately, but when they divorced, she didn't want to leave him with the ability to feature her as a character using her name in his works. And they signed a contract which stipulated that I think she would be able to review manuscripts and if she had objections to the way that she was presented or her presence at all, then he would edit them out or change them. And so it sounded like from her article, she was alleging that he had put up a resistance or significant resistance to this when she came back to him with requests to be removed from yoga and there was an outcry in France where some people were saying this is appalling infringement on artistic freedom and other people saying, well, it makes perfect sense that she wouldn't want her full name and intimate details to be used in a book which many people would read as nonfiction even if it was labeled as fiction. Is there a sense that have things been edited out of this book from the French version to more adhere to that contract or it's unclear? I haven't read the French version. So I can't do a paragraph by paragraph assessment, but there are omissions and it does have the quality of something that's been censored or that things have been lifted out of, and he Emmanuel queer alludes to that. He'll say something like then a crisis happened and I can't tell you what it was. Moving on. And you can piece together that probably the crisis was marriage related. So you're a career head. This is squarely a win for fans. Yes, it might not be his one or two best for you, but this is you pushing it into the hands of career fans? Yeah. It's to the 80th power. I feel like when people encounter him they either totally love him or they absolutely hate him and it's almost like a lactose intolerance where that's just an involuntary response and I would say that the people who love him will welcome this book with open arms and the people who can't tolerate him don't even need to pick it up. You call him I think at some point the opposite of an acquired taste. You're either going to get it immediately or you're just going to hate him forever. You also, I just want to quote another sentence from your review, which is really great. You said his conversational prose style, which can impart the treacherous delusion that you reader might also become a famous novelist if you simply typed up 100% of your internal monologue and hit spell check. And that's exactly the experience you get reading and just that he must have this brilliant internal thing going all the time that he just spools out onto the page.

"It's a work of fiction based on the real story of a man who built his reality out of a fictional story. Herzog and I discussed how similar it is to the kinds of stories Herzog has told throughout his decades long career. Whether you're creating films or books or operas, you so often zero in on characters like onoda, who are kind of single minded in their pursuit of a belief, they are quick sodic there in extreme situations. And so when you said I want to meet onoda, did any part of your brain think, because he is a Herzog and character, he's the kind of person who I've spent my life thinking and writing and creating about. No, of course not. I'm not planning that way. Things come with me with a certain vehement. And then they are and I don't question much and I go directly for the very hardcore of the story. And this is why I met onoda quite a few times. And we immediately had a rapport because I had been in the jungle under difficult circumstances for something entirely different, of course. Do you mean for filmmaking? Yes, right. For example, area Fitzgerald a way to move a 360 ton steamship over a mountain in the journey that was pretty wild. And he immediately noticed to me and acknowledged there was something I must have gone through as well. But of course you can't compare what action and doing a movie that would be silly. In the book you write that you say, I had worked under difficult conditions in the jungle myself and could ask him questions that no one else had asked him. Like what, what were those questions? For example, the idea of time that in the jungle sometimes time does not occur. And they meant a drop of water drips down from a badana front to the ground and 5 months suddenly have passed. It goes in convulsions. You write about this so beautifully. You say a night bird shrieks and a year passes. A fat drop of water on the waxy leaf of a banana plant glistens briefly in the sun and another year is gone. Thank you for correcting me. It's just you're reading from the very text and I like that you do it because people think this is only some sort of part of my filmmaking. No, it's literature. Always been a writer from the very earliest days on oh no does story is well-known, particularly in Japan, and he's often treated as a metaphor for blind loyalty or for disconnection from reality. As somebody who met and is writing about a real flesh and blood person, how do you balance the allegory with the nuanced three dimensional human that he was? Well, there was so much evidence for him that he accumulated that it's almost almost like a religious belief system that he created and we have to ask ourselves how do we believe into, let's say, the belief systems of crazy sect, people do believe in it and they live their lives according to the dogma. You're saying his far fetched beliefs may not actually have been that more extreme or disconnected from reality than the far fetched beliefs that millions of people subscribe to today. I would say yes and of course, since it was a fictitious war, I am asking myself how much of a fiction do I live myself in my life and of course we all do. We are performative. We are bound by cultural norms.

"Renowned filmmaker Werner Herzog has published his first novel, and the story behind it starts in 1997. Herzog was in Tokyo to direct an opera, and his hosts informed him that the Japanese emperor might be open to meeting him. When this was reported to me I said to my Japanese Friends for God's sake, it will be only for a boulet and pleasantries in order real conversation. I shouldn't do it a private audience with the emperor is an enormous honor, and Herzog knew instantly that he'd committed a massive faux pas. It was so embarrassing that there was silent silent silence. And then somebody asked into the silence whom else, if not the emperor, would you like to meet in Japan? And I said, oh no da and they ask, I'm not honored and I said, yeah, here go onoda hero onoda was an icon in Japan. An officer in the Imperial Japanese Army with a story stranger than fiction. He was the last soldier to surrender 29 years after the end of the Second World War. In late 1944, onoda was stationed on a small island in the Philippines, when the Japanese Army evacuated onoda was ordered to stay and fight. And so when the Japanese surrendered in 1945, here just offshore from bloody Okinawa, the town number one, carrying part of the Japanese surrender delegation onoda's private war went on for 29 years he waged a guerrilla campaign from the jungle, first with a few other soldiers and ultimately on his own. He stole food from local villagers, he killed civilians and fought gun battles with police officers he believed were enemy agents. And he resisted all attempts to convince him of the truth. Leaflets dropped from planes, copies of current newspapers, even a personal appeal from his own brother. Onoda was sure they were all fabricated enemy propaganda. His story so big, very, very few stories that we have in our cultural history like let's say some dark or Hugo honora or a few more and that's about it. And so nearly 20 years after their meeting in Japan, Werner Herzog turned onoda's story into a novel called the Twilight world.

"And travel in a unique way through the medical profession. You know, there's a documentary happy people here in the Tiger or something like that. I think Werner Herzog voices it, it tells a story of a simple life of survival. In a Tiger and I think they're trapping for food and there's a lot there's some problem too as well. There's like a very basic life of survival of loneliness and desperation, but also there's a I think the underlying claim of the documentary is that that simple life actually has a kind of simple happiness to it. Hence the name happy people. Can you speak to the life that people live in in those places when it may be simpler? Then you wouldn't sort of big city life. It's definitely very different for sure. You know, I guess I found in some of the remote villages of kamchatka. I was actually surprised how similar they were in that, you know, I saw the same family strife. The same fights the same kind of pairing of relationships and bickering and politics and you know, in a way, from the New Jersey suburbs and being in this remote village of northern kamchatka I remember writing the email to my friend about how just it seemed so similar even though that surface it was this exotic other world. The incredible material know how they must have to get their food from the land. The number of animal species, plant species, the behaviors of the animals, seasons, how to live that way. In a way, it's more complicated in a way that I find fascinating, how people live on the land, and the knowledge and experience it takes to do it well in survive. Obviously, other aspects of modern life in a city are much more complicated than they would be there..

"Alexandra alter is here with notes from the literary world hi, Alexandra. Hi, John. You talk to a real character recently, Werner Herzog, the filmmaker, has done something new at his advanced age. Yeah, so Werner Herzog has just released this week a new novel. His first, it's his debut. And he's almost 80 years old, and of course he's known for his filmmaking. He's made more than 70 films by his count. And so it was a surprising late career turn, and I wanted to talk to him about why he made this shift. He has written some notable nonfiction books before. That's right. He has been writing throughout his career and he's written a lot of poetry. I don't think he's published much of it, but he's written some books of essays, books of journals, one of his more well-known books of walking in ice describes this journey he made on foot from Munich to Paris. It was 600 miles in the dead of winter. He went to visit a dying friend and he wrote about it. Another one that I think is quite well known is his account of all the disasters that occurred while he was making his film fits curl dough in the Peruvian jungle. There were many, including crew member who had to amputate his own foot with a chainsaw after a venomous snake bite plane crashes, fires. He's definitely a writer as well as a filmmaker and what was surprising to me though is the extent to which he identifies himself that way creatively. He told me he believes he'll be remembered more for his prose than his films. And so this story that he tells in his first novel, the Twilight world, is one that he has been ruminating on for more than 25 years and thought about making a film about but ultimately decided it would work better in a novel form, so the story that he tells is actually a true one. It's about hero onoda who was an intelligence officer in the army in Japan during World War II and was deployed to this island in the Philippines and was told to secure the territory, make sure the enemy didn't make any inroads there. And was also worn that he might not get any more orders. And once the troops had withdrawn, he was simply just stay there and make sure that that territory was held. And so he followed those orders for an extraordinary amount of time and he was there in the jungle for nearly 30 years. He refused to believe that Japan had surrendered that the war was over when leaflets were dropped announcing the end of the war. He saw spelling errors and assuming they were enemy forgeries. So it's really a very Werner Herzog and character Herzog loves these extreme figures. Timothy treadwell, the man who embedded himself with grizzly bears to his own detriment. He was mauled to death, or he loves stories about people who go to the edge of a volcano that's about to erupt. Anyone who is testing themselves against nature, and so onoda was very much one of these figures and what was, I think, even more compelling for Herzog was that he had met him when he was in Japan in the 90s to direct an opera. He was asked if he wanted to meet the emperor, and he said, no, which caused a great amount of shock amongst his colleagues. It was an incredible faux pas. And then they said, well, then who else do you want to meet? And he said, onoda, and they met. And so he told me that he based this novel largely on those conversations that they had, as well as onoda's own autobiography. Did he tell you why he didn't either make this a film or write it as a nonfiction book since he knew him personally? I did ask him that and he's not quite comfortable with the fiction label. He said, I understand why they categorize it this way, but I'm not sure if it is a novel. It's very much written like a novel because apart from the first person account of meeting onoda, which occurs at the beginning and the end. The bulk of the narrative is from a close third person account of what anode experience in the jungle. So it doesn't quite have that heft of nonfiction. But when I asked, why did you write this as a novel, he gave me the most Werner Herzog and answer that you can imagine. He basically said the way that time operated for a note, you couldn't capture and film. This is what it all give you the direct quote. He said, we settle ourselves into a grand fiction of present time. It is a fiction. Technically present time does not exist. Our sense of present time is technically impossible because when you lift a foot from the ground lifting it up is already passed, setting it down on the ground is already future. So he felt like this was something that he couldn't capture and film. He needed to explore the strange mental space that onoda was experiencing as well as the wage time can speed up or slow down in the jungle Herzog has spent a lot of time in the jungle himself. So he decided a novel was the way to do it. And I think there was also a practical reason, which was that he wrote this book at the start of the pandemic when his film production was shut down in his wife Elena told him basically you need to do something. He's a hyper productive person. So he wrote this novel and then right after he wrote his autobiography, which is 300 pages and is being translated from German as we speak. Oh, wow. So we'll get that soon. Ish. It should be soon as, yes. And it has a fantastic title, which comes from one of his films. It's every man for himself and God against all. So, okay. Given that title in the quote, you read, I assume that many of our listeners are familiar with Herzog. And I don't know whether it persona is the right word because it seems to just be him. It's not something he puts on. He's a very interesting guy with a very interesting way of seeing the world and speaking about it. What was it like to meet him? I assume you did this over video? We did it over video because he was in Austria in the mountains where he just finished recording the audiobook of the Twilight world and of his memoir. He did the German version of the memoir and then the English version of the audiobook. He was a fascinating person to talk to and also a challenging interview subject because this has come up in other interviews. He's done, of course. He's given many over the years, but he says, and it's true from my experience. He's very averse to self reflection and introspection. So if you try to probe why he's interested in certain subjects or the way that he works or what inspires him, he really has very little patience for those questions. He really wants to talk about either these figures that he has lionized in his work either in his films or now in his novel or what they represent. So a lot of his reflections on those characters are very philosophical. He will not waste any time on small talk or talking about himself. So there isn't any small talk, which isn't surprising to me, but is there any sense of warmth or is it just like talking to an intimidating Oracle? No, he was quite good humored and it's exactly like you say it's not a persona that he puts on. This is simply who he is and it's very much like the voice that you hear narrating his documentary, the voice in his prose is very similar to that. I haven't read his poetry, but I have to imagine it's along those lines too. So yeah, it is kind of like engaging with Werner Herzog that we've seen over the years. That's amazing. I really wish I could have been a fly on the zoom while this was happening. But as always, people can go online and read the full piece of your interview with Herzog and your take on the book, which is really.

"The company led by chief executive Mark Zuckerberg is seeking alternative revenue streams and new features that can attract and retain users as popularity falls for its main social networking products such as Facebook and Instagram, a trend that threatens its $118 billion a year ad based business model. Facebook's financial arm meta financial technologies has been exploring the creation of a virtual currency for the metaverse, which employees internally have dubbed zuck box, according to several people familiar with the efforts. This is unlikely to be a cryptocurrency based on the blockchain, some of the people said, instead, meta is leaning towards introducing in app tokens that would be centrally controlled by the company similar to those used in gaming apps such as the robux currency in popular children's game Roblox. According to company memos and people close to the plans, meta is also looking into the creation of social tokens or reputation tokens, which could be issued as rewards for meaningful contributions in Facebook groups for example. Another effort is to make creator coins that might be associated with particular influencers on its photo sharing app Instagram. Meta has also been exploring more traditional financial services with a focus on helping to provide small business loans at attractive rates, according to several people familiar with the initiative. While nothing is immediately planned, the company has previously held discussions with potential lending partners, one of the people said, most of the efforts are in the early stages of being discussed and could change or be dropped, although its plans to integrate non fungible tokens into its apps are more developed. Zuckerberg confirmed in earlier Financial Times report that Instagram would soon start to support NFTs. According to one memo shared internally last week, meta plans to launch a pilot for posting and sharing NFTs on Facebook in mid may. This will be quickly followed by testing of a feature that will allow for membership in Facebook groups based on NFT ownership and another for minting a term for creating NFTs. NFTs may be monetized via fees and or ads in the future, according to another internal document. But hey, back to the whole zuck bucks thing. I hope they do call them zuck bucks. They should call them zuck bucks. The way things are running these days falling back on some focus group tested and a dynamic DM or Libra or something like that just makes it feel corporate anyway. So own that. Lean into it. Zuck bucks or quoting Harry mccracken on Twitter. Could also call them marks since Germany isn't using that brand anymore.

Being in the water also means being out from under the shade of the trees and Germans are not renowned for their tolerance of sunlight coco was so badly sunburned that her skin bled. The days went on and each morning. It got harder to get up and get moving. Coca dreamt about food and hallucinated a roof flying in the distance or the sound of farm animals on the tenth day.

Phantom menace is not the first movie. Yeah so they're definitely out there little crime syndicate but I don't think I think they're enemy is definitely a empire related. I'm just waiting for Gina Krona to show up because she hot old school stormtroopers. Do you think took out quite a few and I don't think they were designed to live forever so you're thinking clones. These are conscripts. The empire was built up concert conscript. Oh yeah so. How many would what was your question? How many left? I mean of the Empire's is dissolved. So these guys are just like old school stragglers who were just hanging out with the client as his name is going to be a finite resource. Right I would think we're great too by the way. I think he's really good so do you think he's just going to keep their a bounty hunters. Do think we're going to see like a rogues gallery owners coming after the Manda Window. Yes and what that reminded me John Wick fans. But like it's like John Wick excommunicate. Oh only sad. Fleeing the scene it's always westbound hunters coming after him. Yeah pick somebody typing in a room somewhere and like loading like his his information. Yeah it's like I think it's going to be like John Wick where it's like you think man does Jack like he's GonNa get his own little dangle. I bet so yup and I don't know if they're going to be a hotel where you can go and it's neutral ground but you never no no. I wanted to see him bath house. I'd that's an interesting. So I guess toilets you're like the Orion girls was the star Trek. You know the Green Kurt girls everybody. Covets twilight girls. Maybe I don't know maybe Rydell who knows her. Dad I mean the twilights planet with. Maybe it's like the pleasure planet it's all I can think of other the double ponytail tale girls. Yeah Yeah Yep.

Here's the thing so I don't know if you remember from Force Awakens you get the black lightsaber of the dark Zuber. Yeah so the dark sabre is the thing man Laurien culture. That's right where the Mandal Laurean. Who owns the dark saver? which is it's it's like a black lightsaber? That that specific demand Lawrence is basically like the the king. It's the King Arthur Sword. Basically you you put out of Excalibur and you get a black. Let's say it. It was the one that was ever jet. I Yeah I think so which I was mandated to find a random. I'm sorry yeah. Yeah all of them so I love to see that. Come into play. I know based on Canon that came in to the rebels storyline. So now we know that it's being knowledge as Canon it was also include wars the animated. Yeah that'd kind of caught me out. They'd bring some kind of jet did I slash lightsaber type stuff in there somewhere. I don't want them to like shoehorn. Jet Is into it because it we already have like baby. OTAS are token force user and they're not shoving it down arth wrote like. Oh look you wish he so doral. Whenever I listened to it like Travis's got me on the hook of a closed captioning and I love what it says? Cooing hasn't triple noises convened and this is the most immature fifty year old. But your does the same way it was just like. Oh no little notre neutral bar. It's a it's a valid question that's circulating around is is. Is he helping. Say I'll see Yoda's baby. Let's speak in broken language like Yoda now. Does he speak at all or we like was Yoda out there. Somewhere like like just clapping cheeks. Yeah that's the one I like. I like to think he was. Oh are you are are Yoda's like for Angie's like their ears or their Rajin assumes just the year he's bigger the years edging they they do move a lot when he speaks are quite mobile. What happens you wouldn't you talk? Maybe might do. I don't know I never really paid attention to his definitely conveyed like a certain mood. They move up and down puppy tale but anyway so that's been another episode of cinema moving. Now let's keep going when you can go all night to what are you drinking. Yeah Oh Yeah I.

"werner herzog" Discussed on Nerd On! The Podcast
"You five dollars fifteen dollars or more so check us out. You definitely need some stars comics that way. Yeah there are some cool star wars comics canon to the Landau. One's really good that it's yeah but never hears about the marquee topic in yes chapters one and two last week. Check that out. If you haven't or you went over a lot of great Lore Tom we we. We talked about production and we speculate on how this might like. You know kind of fold into the Ola skywalker saga we got going on. So so this week ready but today we're going to stick to chapter three so let's get into the dirty nitty gritty. What do you guys think? What'd you guys? Think of the episode. This is the best one so so far the gates so many like suspenseful moments like incredible action pieces for an episode that shorter than the pilot. Ella it definitely felt more full. Yes than the pilot was and that will also in court on the way here. It was like yeah but the thing is it pays awful lot of the slow burn of the first and second episode right without the first episode setting up. What the best car? Metals were or without the second episode setting up like the viral kills roles and dishonorable kills and what that means mandatory and culture. None of that would have been half as cool is it. Wasn't this episode so I get it. It's groundwork you did it. It's done but I'm gathering the meat of it now right. It's very exciting. We're seeing a lot of cool like we're learning more about their culture. We're learning more about like how how I don't know to me. I think we're actually getting a little bit more of the personality. The I sorely missed a needed from the pilot and the second episode From Mando. I'm GonNa comment because every causing me his name so far And I think what it did was like you know to Corey. Point of like the slogan of the first two episodes. It's not it's also like they gave him a chance to kind of explain a little bit and through a little. Bit of flashback. You've got changing through changing of meaning through montage MHM. The baby is different because of a montage beforehand The schedule means something to him. Because of the explanation of why doesn't want a central given to him right so like there are things things like star wars fanatics and fans hardcore fans much more loyal than I would would understand right for someone that hasn't washed it before like me who is privy to like story building. William like this doesn't mean anything to me yet right so like everyone's getting their joys off for me I'm kind of like you're lacking in story So it's it's that out of world world building out of frame world building. Now it's the in frame right there. Yeah right I I liked seeing them kind of develop like set up like consequences and kind of what that means for the bounty hunter to go against the guild and we see see what happens Falko John Wick three stuff going on. Yeah you know I know I fucked the code because the man has got your back well the only truly matters I whose name was which is. I think it's just the way because if you think about it away like and that's why I liked this episode because it talked a little bit about social systems and yeah ads. We're like the guild code is only as strong as the time it is and the Mandala raincoat transcends time right and so there is you know he walks a fine line between like if you work with the the bounty hunter code a you also in bed with the imperialist or the rebels depending on whoever pays more Mana Code is one true. Be All right Mike. Help your fellow. It doesn't matter what the fuck he did. We're helping him because he's made delorean. That's this is the way I loved that I loved that phrasing way before we get into Suey a little bit of production on it. We're not doing any briefs we'll do a little bit a little lower yeah Specifically just because chapter three. It's a new director Deborah Chow. Who did American guy? Better Call Saul and OBI WAN TV show. This is why I'm excited. He's yeah she's she's leading up so okay so she's an only one episode per though shows shows. I want to say something about Deborah Choke. She killed it first of all hands down. This was a beautiful episode. Yeah but something. If you've ever talked to me about Obi Wan and what I wanted from not only a movie. TV show as well whichever one whichever medium we're going for. I'm glad it's happening. Because it's one of my favorite actors Star Wars. I've always wanted to be an espionage type of story because what is really good at espionage sneaking around ships listening eavesdropping some J. Training jet either. And what did we get an entire segment of in this episode. Shot beautifully and done really well espionage recon so it was the fact that she's Helming the ob one series during an episode. Not Show running it. No it says all six episodes when I looked it up. She's directing all six episodes of the director on. I'm DB but that's all it so for me. Please send a correct me if I'm wrong there either way episodes and that means there's more than just like doing one episode. She's definitely she's slotted to do slated to episodes from Laurent Laurean. She's only typically historically known to do one show I'll look it up in a in a little bit where I found that but I'm excited for it and congrats. She is the first first female director. Anything Star Wars and finally twitter. It only took US forty years. Sixty five billion dollars so recurring cast Pedro Pascal. Carl Weathers Werner Herzog But I wanted US special. Shout out to The armourer played by emily swallow. Who is in castle? Vania as well supernatural supernatural individualist and This episode specific was thirty six minutes. Thirty seconds And then the audience score fronts. Minnows went up by one on percents To a ninety five from ninety four last week and that definitely deserved it. Yeah that's all that production he stuff but a brief synopsis of the episode We we see mandatory hero came back to our original location to send the asset the baby iota that the Internet Act. WBZ client the client's play by Werner Herzog and they quick fast in a hurry actor. pershing take the baby away and give the man delorean Rian. His Best Garner a ton of our apparently a lot of esker enough to make a full body series which she ends up with some leftover for the founder. Yes this is the way the and Going back to his men delorean underground cave He meets up with the armor who finds all the best armor And they decide to make a full suit. He rejects making a single out of the mud horn because he said it was a dishonorable. My enemy helped me because the baby. Oh to help them. I love that line to he. Didn't I know he was my enemy at the towns and the he get stopped by a Felon Lawrence. You are looking at the best garner because it's a it's it's an exotic item. Yeah it's an exotic every month because it is a historically relevant item Dorian for those gamers out there and he almost gets. It's no fight almost kills Jon Favreau And he jumped out. Replace the heavy gunner. Heavy Infantry Guy with doping armor and armor is built but during during this armored building. Montage we get flashback of his childhood seeing a when the Imperial Army the purge him. It was the clone wars. Yeah Oh the clone wars. It's during the clone wars healed. All of the man does family and left him into a bunker. And that's the last we see of the flashback It goes back to seeing the mandolin kind of meditate on what he should do next. Because he's we're seeing he's asking questions that are unlike any other bounty hunter wondering what the whereabouts of the baby he goes back to. Carl weathers his handler handler for the guild and Carl weathers nothing but elated to see that I favored client or whatever the man Mandola Rain has a vested all the other bounds in the bar. And he's wearing that fucking armor like Gos- What men really WANNA wear And they all well Hayden getting the next mission which is far away quote good and overridden with guilt. Yeah and he also so ask Carl weathers the where they can do with the baby and he says it's not my place to ask You know your place task either. It's against the code desk and He goes on his ship. And he's about to leave and then decides an eleventh-hour Bauer decision. To go save. The baby sees the knob on if not a toy and goes in and whips. Lada asked John Wick Style Ghost recon con style and killed a bunch of stormtroopers. Really Savvy. Didn't they they shot like once or twice did they. Okay 'cause it was like a couple of GonNa Miss. They have to miss. Yeah yeah because because like that's kind of like good plot And he Moore gives mercy to Dr pershing and then takes the baby auto way but before he gets to a ship you stop by all all the bounty hunters because his media they turned the empire turned the food back on the fives. The fobs back on. So it's just like excommunicate wick style alcon with three and an escape to try to Find his way out of these bounty hunters he's a you know. Backed up against the corner and Lo and behold all of the mandolins that were very aggressive in the beginning. Come to save the day in their jeff pack tax needed and in a blazing glory Allow Iran three and they compare it to. They may go away baby. Maybe this Christmas I'll find out Yeah we have the all time and then He gets into a ship and flies away while he's flying away The heavy gunner is flying jetpack that he is confronted once again by car. Weather's Carl shoots him and then he got so that they might come shadowed in early in the episode which was chest and FIS away and then gives the little ball thingy to butte again and we end and the galaxy is our oyster waster. Where's the call Amari? We don't know where he's going. He might not be doing that anymore now. He's got a somebody's got to go somewhere. That was just a that was like self-medication like I just need some forget man bounty Yeah this was a great episode moved really well I thought I thought Deborah did a really good job of showing how the mandatory and felt even though we'd never see his face framing was really well. Well done her her the way. At least she allowed montage to work in a way. Where like the scene? You know using Standard Kulikov affect like to Sh- to frames the first one gives better into the first to the second. Well not even the montage. But I'm just saying like within his own actions sitting in the ship alone and that kind of stuff consider up and him what he's doing. Yeah the the close up reaching for for the KNOB and stuff like that. I just thought she did a really really good job of of show. Don't tell which is hard to do when you can't see the eyes or face us word. The has different meaning because of the first shot. It's it's great use of Like Christopher Nolan does actually a circular mode yes And he she uses Zac all around like the best car armor coming back at the very end which is also writing as well. I WANNA give Credit Chris well But she she was able to tell that story visually very yeah which is which is the struggle with with this particular series since he is concerned with a lot of like emotional personal decisions.

Why Werner Herzog loves cat videos
"Today on studio. Three sixty what energizes the legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog sometimes when I don't know how to order my thoughts, I switched on crazy cat videos and immediately. I'm rejuvenated. We talk a lot about cat videos, the art of narration and his latest movie meeting. Gorbachev. Plus from the first time you heard this song, it was just absolutely mind. Melting. The story behind when doves cry, which prints released prepare to feel old thirty five years ago this week. This is what it sounds like the head on studio. Three sixty right after this. This is scheduled for sixty I'm currently at I'm sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial this first level of guard this Thomas Jefferson's vegetable, I'd like to have the roasted chicken very well done, editing is all about timing. I tried to get a little bit away from the actual subject must get sick of your place, right? Three, sixty with good Anderson. Werner Herzog has made more than sixty movies. They're often about man versus extreme forces, the Amazon jungle in FitzGerald. Oh, active volcanoes in the documentary into the inferno. His latest film meeting, Gorbachev also fits into that frame. It's the story of Mikhail. Gorbachev versus a crumbling political and economic system. Food consensus, Kevin over a six month period last year and the year before Hertzog went to Moscow and interview the very last president of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Sekkei bitch. I'm sermon. And the first term and that you probably met wanted to kill you. Hertzog and a co director Andre singer, combined interviews with lots of archival footage to tell the story of the one Soviet leader almost everybody in America, and the west light even adored, and the film is all held together by Herzog signature narration here. His home village is it looks today. It is hard to imagine that from such a godforsaken place in the middle of nowhere, one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century emerged. And when Hertzog is here with me now to talk about meeting Gorbachev, sir. Welcome back to studio. Three six eight thank you. Thank you for having me. So you feel three long conversations with Gorbachev. How did you prepare for those mostly reading I did a lot of homework? I read compensates memoirs Rhoda most excellent biography by William helpmann. Otherwise, I arrived without pain, my hands. I didn't have a catalog of Chris that would rectal down. It was just a conversation from men to men carried on by curiosity. Wave. I was gonna lead me or us. Was unknown the film talks about how Gorbachev is beloved and considered a hero by many Germans, and obviously being a German, a west German at the time, you must have paid keen attention to the Soviet Union at that moment. Sure. And among other things when Germans reunification were somehow abandoned, give him up the real real big thing, about reunification, these it came without bloodshed. It came without violence. Gorbachev allowed peacefully his predecessors would send tanks in and, and suppress the liberation movements of countries like Hungary Poland is terminal. You just name, it chuckle Slovakia, take a Slovak, yo cyst that was attitude of the Soviet Ryan and Gorbachev completely different in his approach and is in west Germany had been separate countries. For essentially your entire life. It just must have seend being a forty odd year old man, having never known anything else impossible that this was never going to happen. Yes, I personally believed I would not see during my lifetime something of that magnitude would take much more time history would be slow, but I was surprised. And when the wall came down in Idi nine and reunification happens, as you say, in the film. So quickly crazily quickly. What was your feeling when I heard about the wall coming down? I was in the southern tip of South America, a mountain, and with five days delay through shortwave radio hurt that the won't had come down, and it's this kind of joy in the shadow of elation, his never left me, I was pleased, given the seriousness of the subject by the touches of humor in this film, like. When they're cutting down ceremonially cutting down the barbed wire between Austria, Hungary, and spend a long time showing this bit of the Austrian nightly news that night I'm going to play that clip. Busy plea for the entire world. I n curtain started to be lifted. However, Austrian evening news was curious about the magnitude of the event retail two minutes. I didn't really metric their lead story was about slugs. It's very funny because they advise you to fill up old with beer in slugs, as lovers of beer would crawl it get drunk and you could harvest them in the morning, then on the miscellaneous much later. So the anchorwoman comes to mention that I am curtain. Being lifted. So it points to that sometimes news completely clueless. In other news, the Cold War is over. Yes. Yes. Do you feel as though humor is, is central to your sensibility, as a filmmaker as a creator, I think this human almost all of my films, and I've been labelled as grim teutonic sort of God knows warrior who, who is determined to risk his life in all all this, all this kind of nonsense. So what you spot it is. There's a lot of human gover of, of course, a lot of human other films. I wanna talk more about your narration, and how you do it. Do you begin with some rough draft? Or do you make the film? I know I the Nori I write the take spontaneously during editing and I know here heft to explain something and I write it down. On incessantly and in the editing room. I have very professional microphone, and I speak the commentaries. Right, then and there while I'm proceeding and sometimes I notice the texts overlaps into the next scene. It's three seconds too long. So I would delete one or two words and rephrase it a little bit in speak again and it would fit. That's amazing. So literally, as you are cutting scenes together, you're coming up with the necessary narration, and recording simultaneous. Yes. Exactly. Is that what I do that extrordinary? Well, I realize it audiences like the way I narrate in not, it's not only my voice. It is a text the context that I create the observation said, I make. So I'm writing the commentaries, and I'm speaking them and ended makes a lot of sense and gives a coherence to films that they would otherwise not. What have? And in his someone there, directing you. You know, saying, hey Werner, let's let's do another take that. No with exception of the editor. He is the only one who would tell me the phrase, doesn't sound right? The grammar is a little bit crooked. Why don't you change? So earth of words, his says to me pronounciation of the word should be different in, in English. So I, I do have helped India seek advice. That's amazing. And also, I'm I'm struck by how demystifying you are of the process. There is nothing. Mysterious about filmmaking. It's just professional work period. Here is a great example of that work from your film, grizzly, man. One of my favorites. This is some of the last football shot by the subject, Timothy Treadwell, a grizzly bear enthusiast. It's a close up of one of his bears, and what haunts me is that in. All the faces of all the bears that trade will ever filmed, I discover no kinship now understanding no mercy. I see only the overwhelming indifference of nature. To me, there's no such thing as a secret world of the bears. And displaying stare speaks only of a half board interest in food, but for Timothy Treadwell despair was a friend, a savior. In a way in that makes film, different and unique I Esa filmmaker heaven ongoing argument with treadmill. Sometimes trade will say something very new agey into how fluffy these Baz I in to hug them, and you have to sing to them and, and here on of sudden night. Chime in say here. I differ with Treadwell in my opinion, wild nature is different. It's chaotic and in dangerous and murderous, not fluffy, like involved, his knee movies. So I just have an argument with him. You didn't always narrate your films, in fact, in your early films. There are other people doing their rations. I believe it was, the, the great ecstasy of would cover Steiner in the seventies that was your first first one. Here's a bit of that finished Pessoa Costa sheaf league in his. Emas. He even so what, what made you decide to start doing that? Forty five years ago. I didn't. Yes, I didn't decide it, it was the signature of TV series all the other films have filmmaker appear in the film and giving the chronically, so right? Not only my voice, head to be in a head to be physically onscreen, as well. I hated the beginning. And, and then I thought when the film was finished I should do at least voice myself I felt uncomfortable but I hit the feeling afterwards, that was something good about it. Steiner's Esther training spoon. Sponsored Fatu got. Wow, your voice was so much higher. You know how Americans feel now about Werner Herzog narrations do Germans here. You're germination think nothing special about that. No. Since I speak own mother tongue. It doesn't really stick out like a sore thumb and insurance, of course. Yes. You'll sense that my first language was Bavarian dialect. It's like let's say Texan, drawl, ereck ignites must come from Texas while he must come from Bavaria, right? The earliest one documentary of yours that I can find that you narrated in English was herdsmen of the sun, which is about a nomadic tribe in the Sahara. This is a clip in the Republic of new Shia. The voter behalf gathered for the annual celebration of care covari towards the end of the rainy season in the month of September tribal meetings are held all over the half desert. Now we hear that we go. Of course, Werner Herzog. That's what he does. But when you first started narrating thirty years ago, was there any pushback from US distributors country Lee say so that was very quick. Aknowledge -ment that audiences feel comfortable and they like the way I make things clear. He really understand what I'm saying. Although I speak with the Nexen with a heavy ex and not as heavy as, for example Kissinger, but that's true. That's true to audiences responded favorably. And that's always a good sign. Your voice is part of the attraction ES, India can tell that it's very easy to make satires and to imitate my voice, you see the internet is full of imposed us. Do you know there's a? Actor and writer Paul Tompkins who has done one. Do you know it, let me play a bit for you and see what you think this is him doing the character on Andy dailies podcast? Okay, if you don't mind I've just uploaded this review to yelp. This is the trader Joe's on hype urine.
