Because it's so dramatic with you and Robert Pattinson acting this lighthouse lighthouse. Could you stand each other. After you finished shooting it. Oh sure it was a pleasure to look at him. It's a pleasure you played so many mean bester stick to I have a now. I have this all right. Peters what we've also played really Nice People Jesus Christ thank you so I get that but these guys go a little crazy yup for the weeks there on this like he would do I would yeah. It's eight thousand ninety s lighthouse off the coast of Maine Two guys they're supposed to be there for for four weeks once an older guy. He's an old hand has been working at the lighthouse for a little while. That's you that's me. I'm the older one of the a two not an old guy. Oh older one. Yes and then. There's the younger one which is rob Pattinson. And he's new. It's kind of mysterious. Who exactly acne is? But I kinda put him through his paces and try to break him into this kind of work kind of rake imperial. Well hang on. Aw I all just trying to run the lighthouse. And then we don't get picked up. The weather goes very bad. And we're supposed to be relieved after four weeks and we don't and then not to give away the whole story but then the food goes bad and we have nothing but liquor left we start to drink back and to people that weren't great friends at the beginning Don't become better friends with and things don't Kossovo.

"Smells bad then because I mean you get completely plus did yeah? I mean. It's funny like once. I think. This is an asset. When like he no they made Out of like a couple of hours and so I'm not going to say it's better not to know I'm not GonNa Jags to and also just thinking that it was so cold old trying to and also as a whole cleanup prices software. So you just really wanted to get it. How much do you want this? How exactly you can get it directly in my face but Wow I mean you really exposed to the elements in this film. I'm guessing passing. It was a mixture of real and fake like which is worse like fake rain and real rain the rain worse. Yeah because it's because it's left and it was freezing cold anyway but it's left in the The tank all the time cycle really really freezing and And also because because it's a little holes and it's it's like really need Lee rain so as painful the no marines after almost a relief they win out the But yeah it was kind of the elements of it's Nice. It's I think if anything I set up before the win If you have something to push back against the elements new environment pushing back against you And you can kind of fight against something right And so you. Can you feel you can go there with the acidic A extremity of your performance because can does like howling winds and stuff you feel self conscious and away yeah It made sense to your character. He is from winslow As we've I mean in many ways WHO's this very mysterious character like what? What did you make him like initially like? He's got a Lotta Secrets. I guess I mean I think it's like he's one of those people who thinks he. They think his secrets a wath more than they are. And that's only because he's he's trying to get his own He's he's trying to make. I mean there's a lot of different analysts but he's trying to kind of make his make more value of himself by thinking. Oh I've got this. I've got a pause but it's kind of actually kind of weirdly simple character and he doesn't he doesn't have the capacity to understand and And I think one of those cars is towards the end of colds them out on it and he said he thought it was some kind of mystery and you're quiet sheets and and nothing that painted bitch screaming at the I remember reading. That is because that's the kind of. That's the frustration. Because he's he just wants. He wants validation from William's character. By that saying you appreciate my work. Put Sam Se have been a good boy and a good thing but as I but he wants sit of his boss to kind of elevate him to a to a level higher than the boss says I. It doesn't make any sense. It's like people who are job all the time and just Kinda like in Boston appreciate what do you think a better than your boss. Then figure out how to get your boss's job otherwise why would you praise you more than they praise him. It's up yeah. I mean to be fair though. He's he's not the best boss William's character he's. He's a bit of a horrible boss. Pretty horrendous uh-huh incredible scene where he Basically invokes King Triton because you didn't like his cooking I mean mostly like being on the receiving end of that speech. That was does quite incredible is pretty amazing. And you're kind of I mean it's it's one of those things is what would kind of that was like a one one shot right and like and it's like seven minutes long and I love the some of the bold decisions in the filmmaking does know coverage that was really really log speech. Yeah I wow so you just you you you're just go for the gamble of And then every single time the movie that seen people just laughed so much talk to us. Yeah that's pretty incredible is almost like being in theater about sort of white filmmaking lake. Yeah and it's funny because it's I. I am amazed about I. Would I would love to see this as a place. Oh cool but Yeah it's funny. How people react to react to that? The kind of Close confines and and also just the aspect aspect ratio people too. So funny when you see people don't you. Everyone thinks he needs to have more and more impressive stuff. Newnan pressman. You just made the screen abyss. Mortar and people were really bizarre but adds to the sort of claustrophobic feeling. It doesn't it I love as well. You other coasters the SEAGULLS Who I I mean? They give pretty remarkable foments elements. You acting you acting opposite puppets was how did it work A lot of time is nothing there and then but There was it was quite amazing. I don't think they use lot of open for the public controlled by six guys and then but it was also ready delicate and expensive answered. Assuming I'm supposed to be like basie torturing seagulls you couldn't actually Beauty Roth with the puppet. Because the PUCK Thi- Fifty Grand Rights. It is and I'd say yeah we Kinda did that for a while and then had to replace it with just one of those rubber check can dog toys or which leads and Fed and beating squeak. It's kind of sad so terrible. Wow such a precise threat to how does he compare someone like it. Christopher Nolan who you've recently tenant of course like what what kind of what the difference is between those kind of directors Sarah's definitely similarity in that kind of and I've always thought that with with Chris Noland as kind of his movies. Seem like this sort of experimental will move is at Dunkirk. Everyone doesn't really see how bizarre God it's like there's no title in the movie tonight and people just don't even notice that and does so particular but I mean I think with both of them as well that you dont pretty relaxed at the same time the You get hints of the level of Control. You definitely see in the scripts that kind of very very Very detailed scripts But Yeah it's funny. I mean I guess scale scale is kind of different but they both kind of pre relaxed about like difficult circumstances. Yeah well we're super excited and also I come resist a question as well I know you. You can't say anything but like the cost surrounding this film now is this is immense. You've got local like Zoe Kravitz. They know and John Tours and I was recently like how excited you to like get involved with with thackery people in there that will kind of it's very. It's funny. They seem very cohesive There's something they all tonight. You can see why it's not just like get massive names right to do something very particular kind of a On weights dominance. It's going to be so cool. Yeah that first table reads is going to be. That's going to be a fun day. They like it. I think. That's my time bet logo.

Pipe before we started having these conversations again. If you know five ten years down the line Taika does end up making it Maybe that would have been enough of a gap between now and then for dad to be sort of more leeway with Taika putting his own spin to it But yeah we'll see. I'm more worried about his schedule. I don't suffer burnout. Frankly because he is a precious rare jewel and we must be. It must be protected at all costs. yeah I just I worry about you know. Take a break of the thornton eleven thunder. Just take a couple of weeks off now do an and recharge. But also I'd like to be a sense of a strategy that would be nice hoed map with With the Star Wars movies rather than just. Oh Y- would you like to direct a star wars. Yeah yeah sure. Yeah.

Further explorers the indistinct boundary between diseases of the body. And the brain are book critic Maureen Corrigan Oregon. Has this review. Some writers search for their signature subjects Susannah Halen had her subject thrust upon her in two two thousand and nine. She was a young reporter for the New York Post. When one day she began feeling like she had the flu shortly thereafter? She was hospitalized in the throes of full blown. Hallucinations and paranoia. As a halen recounts in brain on Fire The best selling twenty twelve memoir. She wrote about this harrowing experience. She was diagnosed as bipolar. And then schizophrenic. She was on the verge of being transferred to a psychiatric unit when one gifted doctor played out a hunch after a spinal tap and biopsy AFC of her brain he diagnosed her with. Autoimmune encephalitis CA. Halen says that this medical diagnosis as opposed to a psychiatric one made all the difference looking back on the ordeal in her latest book. The Great Pretender K.. Hailin recalls how doctors labels altered the way they saw me during my hospitalization one psychiatrist described described my plain white shirt and black leggings as revealing and used it as proof that I was hyper sexual a symptom that supported her bi polar diagnosis yet. The minute the doctors discovered my issues were neurological. The quality of care improved sympathy and understanding replaced the largely distant attitude that had defined my treatment as if a mental illness were my fault whereas a physical illness was something on earned. Something real brain rain on fire was a tense yet ultimately reassuring read largely because of the interventions of that one doctor who saw things things others missed. But the figure at the center of CA- HALEN's new book is more vexed. And as a result the great pretender tells Dell's obligatory your story about diagnoses and outcomes David Rosen. Han was a professor of psychology and law aw at Stanford when in nineteen seventy three. He published a nine page article in the respected Journal. Science called hold on being sane in insane places that Article Rock the psychiatric world and CA- Halen says has continues to be one of the most cited papers in the field. Rosenman argued that psychiatry had no sure way okay to distinguish the same from the insane to empirically prove his thesis. He and seven volunteers including a Grad student student. Three psychologists and two doctors went undercover in twelve. Asylums these so-called pseudo patients posed as people who were hearing voices that said the words Thud empty hollow on that basis. The otherwise healthy people were all admitted. Most of them receiving diagnoses of schizophrenia. Though they behaved normally normally once they were inside the asylum's all the volunteers had difficulty. Getting released. Rosen Han wrote that having once been been labeled schizophrenic. There is nothing. The pseudo patient can do to overcome the tag given a Halen's personal horror horror story of being trapped for a time in a false psychiatric diagnosis. She's understandably drawn to the story of Rosen Hans. Famous expose in the great pretender. Kaelin takes readers on a mostly journalistic adventure story describing her lucky. The discovery of Rosen Hans personal notes on the experiment and the mental and physical legwork. She did to locate an interview. Some of the still living pseudo patients but then a HALEN's investigation hits a snag and then another snag. Her suspicions nations are aroused. She can't confirm some evidence supporting Rosen Hans landmark essay in fact some of the pseudo pseudo patients and their stories seem to be made up. What does it mean if the great debunking of psychiatry was instead instead at least in part the great pretender Keulen seems at sea at the end of this book? I think she win. In intending to write one kind of book about a reformer and his crusade to expose the tyranny of psychiatric labels and then inadvertently ended up writing an expose about the faulty policing of scientific research papers and the professionals who publish just them. The great pretender is still worth reading because it illuminates a game changing moment in the history of psychiatry in this this country it just isn't as satisfying a book as brain on fire because it ends in the middle middle of things the patient so so to speak in this case the field of psychiatry itself remains riddled with flick shins without a sharp by diagnostician. constition at the door ready to save the day Maureen Corrigan teaches literature at Georgetown University.

Feel comfortable with that That was very important. And for that film we had a lot of training and it was great because how it was done in isolation it was done with various serious Serious people and to to honor you know The content of the film because the beautiful thing about that film was it was a personal film. It was a passion film for Oliver Stone. He wanted to tell the story That was drawn very very much from his experience. So to honor that and to Get to some sort of approximate some sort of truth as we tell that story at least you could do is submerged yourself in learning how to do the things things that Soldiers do.

Motherless Brooklyn starring Edward Norton who also directed the film and the Lighthouse where he stars with Robert Pattinson as lighthouse keepers tracked together other battling storms when we left off they were talking about defo's performance in the nineteen eighty six Vietnam war film platoon. We'll in eighty six. Yes you did platoon. That earned you your first Oscar nomination And I gather probably opened up a lot of other roles for you didn't it. It did but the irony was I. I remember this very well It was a period of you know a lot of people making proposals to me but whether it was timing or whatever or I just didn't find the right project for almost a year so you get attention because you're lifted out of the pack for a moment because when you do get a nomination at shines a light on you particularly if if you're not well known so it was a it was a big leap in You know career wise I suppose but it was funny that I couldn't find the right Piece for like a year and then finally when I I did find something a very interesting script with a A new director It was Vietnam. Thang like the worst you know. Talk about repeating yourself on paper. It was a terrible thing to you. Know to follow platoon with but Very very different kind of movie but it was called off limits and it was studio film Matt Fox and That was the next thing I did. And it it's very difficult because I think it without judging the movie because some people really love that movie It wasn't a big success I don't think thank and it came in under one regime and the next scene really wanted to kill it so It was my first experience. Awesome being in the studio film where there were some studio politics at play so the director was always fighting with production and it was difficult difficult time. And that was the follow up to This beautiful experience a platoon There were pledges in but it it was tough and then I thought wow I gotta rethink this so I went back and as I always did Went Back Fitter and thought by better dig in here at all about this film stuff and then I was teaching in and With the company doing workshops at a university in Massachusetts and it was summertime and staying at a very modest like bed and breakfast and I got a call Monday. Martin Scorsese wants to see you. Oh and I said cool. What about and they said? Well this last temptation Asian of Christ which I had heard about but I had never gone in on everybody in their mother went in on this movie but not not me and I thought really what role an my agent says it. Jesus so um well if you want to break out of playing villains. I guess that's going to it is it is And I thought it was strange. I thought really and then I read the script and it made sense to me Because the the nature of how the story is told in An exploration of the Hillman part of this divine character. So Yeah I hopped on board and that that kind of slapped me out of the You know the builders area at doldrums. Yeah I want to talk about the White House which is a film This is intense. Okay you play like this crusty. The veteran lighthouse keeper a wicky in the vernacular who sets in for a four week tour maintaining a lighthouse on a rocky island in New England with a new Inexperienced Guy Played by Robert Pattinson How did you prepare for this role? Oh God It's a very simple bill story You had to do something some There's an accent There's a beautiful elevated poetic language because because it's it's eighteen ninety s so rob eggers and his brother. Max Built this beautiful language. They looked at Milton they looked Dat Melville. They looked at college. They looked at a main our woman and Sarah Orne Jewett who did a study of fisherman's accidents farmers accents of that period. And they stitch together this beautiful language so I had to deal with that language because it is Special it's poetic. It's full of images and full of slang so I had to deal with that. I find the music music. Find the rhythm find a way to Use those to good effect in the same so they didn't pop out and feel like a show or you now. They felt perfectly natural. Even though it's elevated language that I had to deal with pretty quickly you mentioned rubbers. He was the writer and director of the film. Yeah right and and real talent I mean I saw his first film the witch and I said to my representatives I wanna meet this guy and I met him and we get along fabulously and I. I said let's do something together. And this is really the result of that He's a real talent. You're going to see some great films from him You do you want to hear a clip of the language. I thought because there's a clip which I think really beautifully illustrates this This is a point in the film where the conflict between you and your character You know has really begun to ripen. And and you're telling them off This is you play Thomas. The veteran lighthouse keeper. Robert Pattinson is as the younger one. And I'll just note that near the end of this dialogue. The other character begins to weep in your character. Tom Mocks Him. Let's listen okay. Yea and some lad with is brightest. Come to this rock laying. The tough made me laugh with your false from you pretended to some mystery in your quiet us but there ain't no industry. An open book picture says I ate did actress. Screaming in the footlights likes a bitch what wants to be coveted frightened. Nothing but being born crying about the silver spoon want yours now Cry and that is our guest Willem Defoe in the film the Lighthouse. The language is powerful but the voices powerful.

Defoe played a lot of villains early in his career but he sought other roles and one day is agent. Call to say Martin Scorsese wanted to cast him in the last temptation of Christ and I felt really. What role agent says it? Jesus also book critic Maureen. Corrigan reviews a new book about the Blurry Line between diseases of the body and the mind and Ken Tucker reviews new album by the hip hop artist to baby. That's coming up on fresh air. Our guest after after Willem Defoe is known for his intense performances often as villains defoe has appeared in more than one hundred films over the past four decades earning four Oscar tournaments for best supporting actor among his films or platoon to live and die in. La The last temptation of Christ grand. Budapest hotel the Florida project and at Eternity Gate in which he portrayed. Vincent Van Gogh Defoe currently stars with Robert Pattinson in the new film. The lighthouse he also appears ears and motherless Brooklyn which was adapted from Jonathan Lethal novel by the film's Star Edward Norton Defoe spoke with fresh air's Davies and they began with a clip from motherless. Louis Brooklyn it's a film. Noir set in the fifties and evolving corruption in New York. City Land Redevelopment Norton plays a private eye who has to read syndrome Graham. He's investigating this corruption because the people behind it seemed connected to the murder of the head of the detective agency where he works the person behind the redevelopment redevelopment plans is a ruthless powerbroker named Moses Randolph. Clearly based on the real life figure of Robert Moses Defoe's character is one of the people opposing hosing the redevelopment plan because he and just about everyone else in his neighborhood will be forced out of their homes by the new construction in this scene. Defoe who is in a diner. Talking with Norton's character who's posing as a reporter to get people to reveal information defoe's character. Paul speaks I to the waiter at the diner signer. Excuse me could I get a slice of cheesecake. Could you make a one. One half of the city is getting a ride on one of his horses for God sakes. He controls every construction job. He said they just created the position construction slumps parks. He's got fourteen appointments. Appointments is all just ain't gonNA glass door none of it matters it's Ba Ba. Borough Authority you call yourself a reporter on on what the arts between read. I must have should. Yeah you sure Emerson said an institution is the length and shadow of one man. This town is run by the borough authority. And the Borough Authority is Moses Randolph mm-hmm and that is our guest Willem Dafoe in motherless Brooklyn. Well Willem Defoe welcome to fresh air. Thank you I noticed that your character begins by asking for Chased cake served warm right character. Right oddball we first meet him. When he's kind of shouting out stuff at Moses Randolph? In a meeting tell us how you saw this character. One of the beauties of this character is. He's not as appears when you first see him. He you you think maybe it's a homeless guy unstable with an ax to grind paranoid. And then you learn. He really holds the secrets that he knows intimately about corruption in the city because Moses Randolph is his brother and there's almost as Shakespearean Rian backstory to how they Both arrived to where they are when we see them. In the movie and They basically started out brothers of his wife the family with deep sense of Noblesse. Oh believes that they wanted to help. Make the world a better place. But then there's a real split Because my brother all of a sudden as I say in this story I say he gets tired of losing to lesser minds and he gets frustrated and becomes obsessed with accumulating power and winning if that has any resonance you know in This Day and age. That word winning and they have a split but at the same time time. This isn't a strict in all polemic. I mean really. The Moses Randolph character beautifully played by Alec Baldwin also expresses versus some interesting things. He talks about. He uses Central Park as an example that There was resistance to central park when they wanted to create a a private park they displaced some farmers They moved some trees. He says that People have to be forward thinking and sometimes it's is the man of action that You know must make progress. But of course there's great corruption in the story and in the name of progress a lot of people are rum just considered Collateral damage and that's right and even your character who seems aims to stand for justice and fairness all. The time doesn't fully commit because he has his own ambitions. You gotta go but this all one hour yes yes it's true. It's true and that was important. I think so you know right Kim. Just you know this this little crusader. He has his own own agenda. And he's protecting that as well and he can't fully commit to justice because he's reserved part hoping that you'll have a reconciliation conciliation with his brother to help him realize his particular agenda that is not totally altruistic. You Know Edward Norton said your character. Paul is is the moral core of the movie. Did you talk to him about why he wanted you for this role. No I didn't fee just said he wanted me to play. Yeah well you know we know each other and I have a lot of respect for him and it was clearly a passion project and something thing he'd been working on for a long time and something that he felt deeply about so I'm attracted to that kind of passion and when he says they needed made to do it. Ah I respond to that. I remember a curious thing was. I was growing a beard for the film that I was going to call the lighthouse and I said Edward. I don't think I can do it because I'm growing this beard. I know one in the fifties had a beard. I mean I'll stick out. It'll seem strange. Also somehow you you feel like psychically. That beard is reserved for that character in The lighthouse it doesn't feel right. Maybe I can't do it. And he paused laws for second than thought about a for day and he said no nautile work fine and in fact it was helpful because In a very quick short hand out when you first I see him. It does marginalize him it does make him stick out but in a good way and that kind of sets up A the fact that he he's an outsider. You see immediately a lot gets accomplished by the visuals Edward Norton wrote and directed this as you say he worked on it for many years and his is an interesting character is a private eye but he has to read and we'll just occasionally like tae these things turn his head to the side and just bark out these words that are kind of have some random connection to the conversation. He was directing you while he was acting in the scenes with you and I'm just wondering I always wanted kind of what that experience is like taking direction from someone who is also in the scene with you and in his case. You have the Tarantula. I'm just wondering if it affects. What the pacing? What's it like? It's nice is because it makes things very fluid So it makes it very efficient and making this period film on a tight budget. It was probably the only way to do it also. He surrounded himself by people that he worked with. Before and people that really understood stood his mission so there was something Beautiful about because we could be so light on our feet. You know there's now checking the Monitor. Senator there's no you're not reflecting on it which could be dangerous but as I say he knew the material so while? Any news collaborated Brady. So well that I think it that an energy in an urgency that you don't always get when when the directors and playing as an actor across from you we're speaking with Willem dafoe he stars in the new films motherless Brooklyn and in the lighthouse. I wanted to talk about the Florida project. which sure you ruin earned an Oscar nomination for your role in? This is a really interesting film from director. Sean Baker about kids like young kids like six seven year olds who live live.

Oscar nominations 2019 predictions: From A Star is Born to Roma

"Eight. I saw green book most recently, which I thought was great that may end up being my pick to to win the best picture. You've seen all best picture movies except for Roma. So you've got Black Panther black klansman bohemian rhapsody, by the way, Adam Lambert and Queen are going to perform Sunday, that'd be cool. That'll be really lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper performing. Which will also be cool. You really cool the favorite green book Romo rumour, aroma. Tony Romo model a star is born and vice. And who you picking unpicking green book to win because I think it made you feel the best and it was well done a period piece based on a true story, Rome. I think is getting a lot of a lot of buzz too. But maybe the director Affonso who also I think one best picture for gravity in our best director in two thousand thirteen for gravity Black Panther, which I know dragon scene for sure is definitely the best of all the marvel movies ever made. And it's interesting because it was such a big deal about their cast being all black the director and writer Ryan Kugler African American and so I'm surprised that he wasn't nominated for best director as well, Spike, Lee. This is his fifth nomination for best director. He's never one. But I'm picking green book to win that wouldn't be surprised if Roma does I loved bohemian rhapsody. But you remember when it came out, and we talked about they took some liberties with the story joke that Freddie Mercury doesn't die of aids in the movie because I remember making that joke. They changed a bunch of stuff around in that movie. Why did you read the bio and Freddie Mercury? I talked to friends that have seen it the no a lot more about Queen and the timetable with how the movie plays out and how he got in the band and stuff, but it's an entertaining movie. What's the best movie you've seen this year because I'm picking green book to win? I haven't seen any of them, by the way. So I got nothing. Oh. Yeah. Set a best picture you haven't seen Black Panther either. No. But are you a superhero movie guy? No, not at all. No. I I haven't seen any of those. I'm gonna say that I I like bohemian rhapsody a lot and I'm not a huge Queen fan. But I really liked it. But I'm gonna go with the stars four stars born it was it was really really I think the biggest reason reasonable win. Cathy, is that it's already been this is the fourth. They've done this story. I know that they've tweaked it. I didn't lady Gaga is gonna pull the upset for best actress, I hope so I you know, it really really made me like lady Gaga put her in a total different category fro. Yes. She's fantastic. A great singer. But you know, I I like her music, but I never put her like on this pedestal you've tried to act not try you weren't actor try. That's a bit of a stretch. But yeah, but the point is imagine the first real you ever play you get nominated for an Oscar, and I get that she's playing a struggling musician, and she can easily identify with that and go back to what it took to get discovered and all of that. And and you know, toiling in nothing jobs hoping for that break, but to execute that onscreen, and she was she was the best part of the movie by far Bradley Cooper is really good. But I hope she wins. Even though Glenn Close, it's seven nation. She's never one. So she could be a lifetime achievement kind of winner. If you will she's phenomenally talented, she s I don't know. But I liked Ramey. Malik as I think he's going to go. I mean, he did a great impersonation. So let's go actor in a leading role, you got Christian bale? Vice Bradley Cooper, a star is born Willem Defoe at eternity gate. Remmy Romney Malik bohemian rhapsody Vigo Mortenson green book, jussie smollet for the Chicago hope. Very funny. Avi next next year. He'll get one for that bright. Yeah. Like when Golden Globes. Yeah. So that it plus you're combining acting and singing did he really singing. Oh, okay. So we he was acting like a cigarette. Huber really saying. Yeah, he did having Adam Lambert seeing at the goal K, so okay. And at the Oscars, maybe Bradley Cooper, then because he's singing and acting and this is any directed it. This is Bradley Cooper's forced nomination as an actor, and he's never won Christian bale. One once Willem Dafoe. This is his fifth nomination. He's never won. And I don't I know Vigo Mortenson hasn't won. And certainly Rami Malik first nomination. Still picking me Malik to win. I thought he was great. Actress in a leading role you have low LIZA appereciation from Roma. You have Glenn Close. Everybody knows here from the wife Livia Coleman from the favorite lady. Gaga stars born Melissa McCarthy, can you ever forgive him in a more serious turn not a not a comedic role. She's awesome. The best lady Gaga for that. I think it's upset Glenn Close as the heavy favorite. But I'm I'm pulling a lady Gaga upset as my pick feel like Glenn Close because she's been around. So long performance is great. And then maybe it's like her turn kind of thing. Maybe and, but they did it lady Gaga's gonna keep acting and have another shot seems far-fetched at this point. Right. So is leader thirty. So, but how come Bradley Cooper, gene, get a directing because he did for American sniper? So that's about those are the biggies right there. Yeah. Supporting actor and actress, Marcia Lee who is in green book, I bet you. He wins a second. You don't want to talk about making hairstyling best animated feature. Incredible to come on. I don't know about best editing. The spider verse hairstyling best song song about best picture. Or did. We did that already songs. Best. The song. Okay. What are your choices? I don't see all the stars Black Panther. I'll fight RV g the place where lost things go. Mary. Poppins returns. Shallow. A star is born when a cowboy change Spurs for wings, the ballot BUSTER Scruggs, and that's different from original score original scores of music throughout the movie right songs. I think it'll be almost impossible. For lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper not to win. I think they win. Okay. We're we're out of time. I'll watch part of it. Yeah. It's like a four hour show. Four hours. It's hard to it gets here. It's one of my favorite my favorite nights of the year. I used to always do with my mom. That guy picks. I'm that guy. I have a couple of friends getting together to watch the show. I get it. I mean, if you watch I haven't seen all the movies. I wait to watch him on the Denver Broncos play. Year later used be all the movies. It'll be of several of these. Oh, I gave did your wife end up watching bohemian a couple times guide and really liked.

You know, we used to play basketball on stilts to try to get good with them. You know, I like it. I mean, I I'm like doing structured actions and having something come out of it. It's.

Film Review of 'At Eternity's Gate': Willem Dafoe Is Vincent Van Gogh

"HT? What have you been watching? I only saw one movie in the theater this weekend. And that was at attorneys gate, which is the film chronicling the final years of Vincent Van Gogh played by Willem Defoe. I hadn't heard a lot about this movie then praised for limb Defoe's performance, and from what I've seen like trailers or images, it looks kind of muted because it's shot in mostly natural lighting. But and I was wondering whether that would be able to capture sort of like, the brilliant artistry of incident Van Gogh and how he like display's color and everything, and I'm also like a little biased because I absolutely love the doctor who at the soda about Vincent Van Gogh. And I think that's one of the best depictions of the artists, but at attorneys gate is I the best the depiction of the artists in his tortured existence as well as the way that he uniquely views the world. So the natural lighting was it's actually a really beautiful way of depicting. His particularly singular way of viewing the world because it's it's somehow becomes this rich symphony of colors by using the sunlight as a as another form of color. I can't really describe it. But it's just beautifully shot. The descended cinematography is amazing and director Julian Schnabel just doesn't think it Schnabel Schnabel as a brilliant job of just kind of looking all these different types of colors, and shades of just like blades of grass, and yes, Willem Dafoe is astonishing in this movie, especially because this film a lot of it takes place in intense close ups of his face, and he is just all crackles, and and deep deep wells emotion. And I hope that he might get some awards buzz for this film, especially after he got rudely snubbed for the Florida project still. Very bitter about but he's really into gin. And I highly recommend this film, especially if you like Vincent Van Gogh, or if you just want to see a film that really realizes an artist in a beautiful way.

"Damn talking with three time Oscar nominated actor Willem Dafoe who gives what many are calling the performance of his career as Vincent Van Gogh in the new film called Ed attorneys gate, Willem Dafoe, welcome. Thank you. Well, we were just talking before we came in here because I have a bunch of magic posters in my office about the fact that you are from Appleton, Wisconsin. Which is the birthplace of who. While it's not the birthplace sky. The hometown grew up their hometown of Eric Weiss, better known as Harry Houdini the great Houdini late Houdini. Wow. Yeah. And you were saying that at one point, I guess you guys tried to contact him with a ouija board. While that I when I was a kid friend's father was in a building that he was going to turn into a restaurant and someone said, you know, this used to be where the family home of Harry Houdini, and we were kids, and we. Kind out the ouija board and said Harry Houdini if you're their contact us in it kept on going E W E W E W. We thought this doesn't work, of course, years later, we found out that his given name was Eric Weiss. Wow. And that's funny because like his whole thing was disproving mediums. And he said if you can really come back from the other side, he told his wife tried to contact me on the nursery of my death for ten years and was his whole thing. Trying to contact him from the other side, and you managed to do with no one else can do. That's incredible. Growing up in Appleton. Wisconsin was he like the biggest celebrity from there. I'm afraid there was another celebrity Senator Joe McCarthy. Oh, right, Wisconsin. Yeah. Wow. Tell Ghana Joe. Yikes. Yeah. So we had we had a range there. Yeah. Well, now, maybe you're the best biggest. I mean, people forget politicians. They forget turn is entry magicians though, you might have taken things over. I'm not so sure. Well, I read that you come from a big family. I think your seven out of eight kids is that right? That's right. Wow. That is a big Wisconsin family. Right. They're not even Catholic. Yeah. And not even farmer. So what's what's so many pets? I don't know. My parents. I don't know they. What can I say? I mean, I suppose a psychologist might say, you know, with so many siblings. You must have always been trying to fight for attention. Of course, that must be why you're an actor. Fair to say, I've never thought about it too much. But that's fair to say, I think where you like that as a kid were you outgoing and trying to entertain I think so. Yeah. So you look for your place. And so I was like the prankster and the the joker. I guess now your whole family, including your siblings, their doctors, and nurses. So how the hell did you end up getting into acting? It's a good question. I mean, basically, it's about the no when you're young there was a community theater in my small town. And it was very good one, actually. And they used the physical theatre of the university that was there. So it was like a semi professional summer theater, and I started working there and doing place at school, and that sort of thing. And of course, it starts out just as a pleasure. And then later Yuki on. Thinking you going to learn to do something else? Do something us for living. But it never quite happens. And I just basically been working as a performer for ever since. I was about eighteen do you still feel like you're still doing it for the pleasure? Yeah. I do actually. Yeah. Because it's always different than that's pretty suspicious and in. I see it depends on the person. You know, I see some people that I started out with that are my age and have been doing it like for forty years like I have in some still alike may enjoy it in find challenges and others. I think just you know, move on. Yeah. And it seems like you don't do it necessarily for the paycheck, you seek out things that interest you 'cause you do probably what maybe three or four indie films for every studio movie that you'd do it. Probably true. That's true. I think just generally I feel the mo- I find the most..

It's like a roomba made entirely of velvet is rolling through my brain, and there's no way to replicate that no way that is safe. At least as you may remember Willem Dafoe is playing Vincent Van Gogh in a movie because their names rhyme. That's okay. Testing works right. The thing is willing to fo- is sixty three and Van Gogh was only thirty seven when he died. But according to Willem that's no big deal. He said quote, I was surprised that he was only thirty seven years old and then I looked and did some research on what the average age of mortality was in France in the late nineteenth century forty years old. Now it's seventy years old. So without being too cute about it, today's seventy was yesteryears forty and quote, you heard it here folks from Willem Dafoe seventy is the new forty eighty is the new fifty and by nineteenth century French standards.

Yeah, that heroin came back to the states and which is crazy to think about soldiers on heroin fighting in a battle, all that heroin and not one hero. But, but yeah, that's show myself that seem read differently to me this time, like whether that was Oliver Stone, kind of coding that in there for visiting for the heads that would go. You pointed out how strange it was that for Elias to be there to begin with, but I think he has to be there to stand in opposition to Tom berringer's cares your. I mean they are polar like again, stone is heavy handed in growing the most polar opposite characterize wiser versus. Yeah, we'd exactly. Yeah, for sure. And, and in contrast shows the other part of that scene is what's going on in the the other tent with which literally starts with Merle haggard singing. We don't smoke. Marijuana is like the first thing you hear as it's man's guts from the marijuana Zine, but they're getting drunk playing cards and then elements of racer coming in that as well. Because junior is the one guy who's kind of upstanding from all that stuff. Right. It's interesting like the roles that those characters play in the village seem to like it. Kind of like the morality kind of falls on the same lines like, oh, like junior, and those guys are gonna do some rape and Kevin Dillon is gonna crush a guys. Yeah, go with the butt of his shotgun and Charlie Sheen and Willem Dafoe or like trying to bring some sanity to the situation platoon divided. And that was kind of the point of the movie even said. So at the end you looking back, we fought ourselves, but are you on team alliance routine Barnes? That's the big question and a country divided like watching it. You're, I think part of the tension of that village seen as a viewer is your.

"Hey folks sam jones here welcome to another edition of offcamera the show i get to talk to a konic creative curious artists and find out how they got that way and in this episode i sit down with legendary actor willem dafoe you know one of the best things about doing the show is the excuse gives me to dive into the work of artists that i really admire i especially love it when that research tells me more about why i admire them willem dafoe deserves every bit of the praise and fame the came with his work in platoon mississippi burning the last temptation of christ but re washing his catalogue i found myself most drawn to his smaller films like shadow the vampire anti christ the hunter and gogo tales i suspect that's the stuff he enjoys the most to maybe that's why we talk so much about the florida project is most recent film it illustrates everything he loves about what he does willem spent weeks on a rundown motels driven florida shooting a small movie with a cast of newcomers most of whom had never acted in their lives why because he fell in love with a world in an idea because he got to collaborate with people who were excited about making something different and because he was able to enter a character the the best way he knows how by doing their job you can learn a lot about willem just by studying his choices and in this episode you'll learn what he asks himself before taking a role you'll also hear why he doesn't want to much respect and why a movie is only risky if it's not risky he said something else that struck me pretend with the thority find the thing that gives you the confidence to say i am this person is you'll hear that can be as complex as study in cognitive behavioural therapy or as simple as a set of fake teeth.
