Who is the one who tagged me in it. So that was why. I was able to see it. And it's a four part series where katie goes through and watches the movie of lan chanted. Which if you listened to the last episode. I talked about ellen chanted and you know that like it's not just my opinion like it's a very. It's a very obvious fact that the movie is like a complete bastardisation of the book. They basically said like okay. Let's take all of the movies. Not terrible for what it was in the was in. But they basically said let's take all the interesting unique bell enchanted Strip it out meticulously leave on the only thing that's left is the obedience thing that's anything different from any other teen movie right young young adult romance at the time and then turn that into a movie with lake using a lot of the same names and stuff is not so katie. Felt much the same way as me about it. And so she watched the whole movie and basically like step by step was talking about all the differences between the movie and the book. And i had mentioned that i thought it was really great because it seemed to have convinced a lot of people in the comments to go read. The book hadn't read it before as it turns out Also convinced me to go back and read the book.

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.

This conversation happened nine years ago. My wife was writing television pilot based on a book about a famous psychic. We were having dinner with the psychic. And she did an impromptu session with me. So Kate could see her in action. I say this distressed that the prediction came from someone a lot of people considered to be a very reliable source. When my father Jerry was dying just over two years ago. I kept thinking about how little I knew him, which isn't to say I hadn't spent time with them. I lived with both him. And my mother in Maplewood New Jersey until I went to college. I talked to him on the phone every week when soon after leaving college, I moved to Los Angeles. I came back frequently to see them and then him after my mother died. And in the last five years I've worked on television show that shoots in New York and saw him every spring and summer.

All these different variations just to give them material to work with because they're animating you aren't animating to something that's already drawn doing the first year doing the first draft. And then there's lots of drafts after that. But he was a genius at being in the room and just giving you direction to put it on its head. Do it sideways. Do it in all these different ways.

And I'm not sure I'm not sure I want to send kind of confidence of the same kind of clarity. And I found that's true. Generally, something often ask questions, you know.

I thought okay. It's I've got the structure now, we can do it. And the doing the contact that quality of being there is what I love. And this this notion of of you know, it makes me think of actually Van Gogh. He said, he's he's to say, I don't invent the picture. I find it in nature and just after free it, which is a beautiful thing. Yeah. So Wes gives you a beautiful world gives you beautiful detail. And then you enter it. I also think of. I'm David Lynch. You know, some terms you go into get a costume, and as of rack of things, and you're trying on staff, and you say, maybe this maybe that David Lynch brought me a constant one hangar and said here it is. And it was perfect. He gave me the perfect setup. That's where you want from a director. You want a perfect setup. You want the world made. And then when you enter you know, what you have to do. It's a when it's always that way. It's a it's a pleasure when there's someone with a very clear vision. Yeah. And some people that sounds dead name like, well, then what do you do? What do you do you do right here? And there's nothing more beautiful. And it always changes it always changes in the doing. And so when they give you a beautiful setup like that you can live you can live and not be so burdened by choices and conscious decisions, you can really get into the flow of things. And if you stray from what they had in mind, Newt you gently toward I'm sure or or he may have a moment where he says God, this is better than I thought let's go that way. It's not like it's rigid. But he's. West really sees it. And then. Does it gets the people and applies applies. You've done a couple of couple of movies in motion capture..

We can't you know, we're conditioned to really. I don't know culturally where all about productivity in reason. And you know, the truth is very far away from that. But the truth is what's going to make us stay alive and awake. So in these taking on different stories in different roles. I think it always challenges your thinking and wakes you up wakes you up.

Green screen when your show up. You've got a coffee mug within on that can be pretty dead. Okay. We kicked off those two boxes and we'll go back to just talk. I don't care. But I did I. I am curious about the film that you made in Auschwitz. Well, that was a great experience. And I am thinking about lately because Arnold hopeless. The producer recently has to weigh. And he was also a producer on platoon and other films as well. But those are two films that I made with him. We I think we were basically the first film to film entirely. On location in heck meekly, we filmed in ocean at Auschwitz, but most of it was filmed in Birkenau. And this is pre wall falling Poland, and it was tough and Burke amount would they it's like, they padlock the place at lunch. I could. I'd wander around, and you could still find person effects the in the grass, she you know, it's such a evil lace. You couldn't contacted emotionally hit only duet story. But. Of course. And there were moments where you just look at a piece of land. And you'd see a tree that was you knew was old enough to have witnessed one went on there. And it was chilling. But it's so far away from you. So far from your experience that it was difficult to grasp, but of course, shooting in the real place. Really rooted the experience. Also, we had like people that were both. Prisoners dinner and also people that work there, and they were having reunions by elderly now, and they they were sharing stories. The movie was based on the story of. Vessel Mamata boxer. A Greek Jew who was synthetic Schwartz, and he survived by basically catching the attention of the commandant because he was good boxer and just for entertainment, they'd have the inmates walks and the commandant really liked him. So he got preferential treatment. So you had this horrible situation a moral dilemma where you can't begrudge the guy find his way to survive. But at the same time, he it he couldn't extend those privileges to his friends and his family. So he was that he was basically taking favorites from the people that were killing his people. So it was an interesting. Story and and didn't get a huge release. I think it was admired by some people very much, but it did really habits day made by Robert young Wease. Great, great filmmaker. And I I'd love to work with him. I don't wanna hog question department here. No, it's. Say it's overwhelming, the number of movies you've made and the locations and the actors and everything else and trying to to we have trouble remembering all of it. I don't know how you do in the movies and the place that have done my life. I'm starting to realize are the only way I remember. Sure. Sure. Sure. It's really funny because if you say movie, I may not remember all the editions. I'm not Jane bring out all the anecdotes about the film and all that. But I do remember what was going on in my personal life has to share. That's only it's a marker. We realize we didn't name. The film is called triumph of this idea. Young trying to guess front for the spirit except for the actors working on it who were stuck at the camps. Not so much triumph of the spirit. But yes, it was tough hard before that film, I presume you had to learn I did and I had I had a world class trainer teddy. Atlas who worked with custom motto when he was worked with custom out of the famous drain. You know of Mike Tyson and many others. And he he was fantastic. So sort of like the painting in Van Gogh boxing was essential to finding the key of the character of the of the story. But that's one of the things.

Get warmed up the best location. That's so hard to say. But one thing that pops in my mind, I did a movie very little seen movie with director Mark Pepple was probably better known as a screenwriter. We worked with Bertolucci worked with. He as a young man, he wrote a lot of beautiful screenplays did a movie called victory based on the Joseph Conrad novel, and we shot in Malaysia, Indonesia. And Germany, and I remember it. We were on. We went on a period ship. Some of the time, and I'd just climb over the side. We'd be going to a an island location that you can only reach by ship. We'd be in this period shift by being my wardrobe and I'd stripped down to you know, underwear I'd go down the side. I'd swim to the island. They'd make me with my costume there. And we'd found we were living a life that was a tropical island life shooting. A film. In an area that was basically uninhabited, and it was just thrilling because you're out of the difference between the living and the fiction of the story was there was very little that was blurred. And it was so exciting, and it was such beautiful area. And so I love that. I love that when you're on location, and you create a new experience in that helps of course, inform the. Everything.

I mean, I think so because that was the first film that was a popular and critical success and had an international. You know, was was successful internationally. But there were there were baby steps there were other steps that you know, contributed streets of fire. The first the film was not a success, but I got some attention for that. People started asking me to come in to see that for work because you got to remember, I'm working at a little theater. That's what I do. Yeah. I'm I don't have an agent and a manager and all that for quite some time now. Now. So from Kathryn Bigelow 's first movie, the loveless, I Walter Hill's saw a look with of me on the motorcycle. And of course, gas me as much. And so that had that put me on my way, and then to live in Diana lay was very important because while at the time that was not a huge success either. It was a film that was very much admired by filmmakers. Yeah. So I know you can kind of trace that Oliver Stone and Martin Scorsese both were aware for me from that movie. So that's a good thing.

And it was really it was really exciting. But it was strange because in the first day, I think we got a week behind because Michael Jamuna was developing this thing in in the way that the studio wasn't quite down with. He was created. No material all the time. I was basically unscripted extra extra and he started putting me in scenes and things it didn't really cut me out. I could if we watch it if we sat, and we watch the movie I can show you where I am because I'm peppered all through it. The new drinking game the new drink look. Just look drunk. There. But yeah, it was it was a humiliating thing. But on the other hand, I was supposed to only go out there for two weeks, and then go back to theater and then come back for like another two weeks will when I got there. I didn't have an agent or anything they just caught cast me from Saint me at the theater. I they said guess what you're not on this thing called the daily contract and more. They ripped it up. And they said you're on a weekly, and we're going to keep you as long as we'd like because this is in you wouldn't argue with that I had just one big movie with and they were like you're lucky to be here. You know lucky you, so, but that created a problem with theater, so it was a mixed blessing. When I got fired. I was then back with my colleagues with the people that I my life really was with. So while it was humiliating that my foray into the professional world was kind of stunted there. I also remember being happy at that. Okay. I'm I'm going home. I'm going home to do work. What I say the mind boggling, then that was mind boggling at once film top to bottom, and it was a wonderful experience in. They were doing wonderful things. It's you know, it just got off track. Yeah. And also somewhere, you know, it's famously. Was relevancy in some what what people remember is that it sunk is studio and. In those days. You know, it was. I don't know a sink or swim immediately. And they really hold it. They didn't even give it a chance, and it became a whipping boy. So even though personally I was in a hurt by that experience. I don't gloat at all. Because I he was doing something interesting and from a financial standpoint, I get it. I get it. He was putting resources at risk and he was being low irresponsible. But he was also. Trying to make a great movie. So I I had a lot of respect for him. And I wouldn't call it a strikeout it has too many good things in it. Yeah. And and you know, he could be rough and she could be demanding. And it could be a perfectionist on all those things. But there were also he was very talented. So I can't I can't I can't you know, You know, I I got got a. a foot both camps on that. Yeah. Well, that's a hell of a baptism of fire. That's an interesting note to be fair. I mean, that's that. Really? That was my first like studio experience there that was a time where people were making films. So I I was involved in you know. Small films downtown at that time, they weren't professional, but they were still interesting. So it's not like what it sounds like, you don't know. Accept the the the the lunch breaks pet.

"When did that that appeal to you right away? Well, I think you know, one of the most influential performances when I was a kid that I saw I still think about hours bar, scar losses Frankenstein the sequence in. Bride of Frankenstein where he says we be long, and well, we belong dead. And he reaches for the lever. That foes makes the explosion happens that brings down the castle and a single tear rolls down his eye that was Abbas movies to me that was opera that was that was very poignant. All of those things still true. Yes. Yes. So. I think I was drawn to extreme situations and extreme ways of performing. And I think also fitter background not always. But I just find that sometimes mask provides it becomes a trigger to forget yourself, for example, when I did this movie shadow vampire, I was unrecognizable and it was a long makeup job. And when I would look at myself in the mirror. I didn't look like myself and accent. I didn't sound like myself. I was wearing course it and a costume that made me move physically differently. I didn't move like myself all those things took away from myself and allowed me to maybe I'm being literal, but feel quite like someone else, and that's a wonderful feeling when you can abandon your conditioning and open up to another experience. You know, I can be you can be you or I can be you. I can imagine your experience, and it's not just about empathy. It's really about challenging this idea that we're fixed personality to am. I think ultimately, I'm like position events actor, as you know, the person, that's, you know, in front of a campfire telling the story, even though it's not always about stories, but through their experience people, watch them and share that experience. And that's why. Like a movie like and goes so much because it is about perception. And if you are with him with that very subjective camera with all those close ups with all those sequences where you're just with him walking around or you're with him painting. It. Takes you to another way of thinking. And I think that that's what keeps us alive shadow of the vampire is one of my favorite movies ever. I love it. Big state. It's true.

And now and also I'm I'm obsessed lightly. By is expression. That's come into very common usage. Nailing it. I don't like this work. There is no nailing it and nailing. It is also when you think about it. It's about stopping the motion of something, you know, it's killing it. It's putting it, of course, it means perfection and well done, but also the image is like nailing down keeping that knowing what it is. You know, keeping it where it's supposed to be not letting it slide around and the truth is, you know, on Monday, something that's great can be horrible on Friday and something that's great on Friday can be you know, horrible on Monday. So you got to have that kind of you gotta let the reality. And the reality is imperfect, and it's contradictory, and it's disappointing and all those things.

Vern ganja. So whole world. Let's look at the clock back a little bit. You do come from Wisconsin. Yes. That like. Small town, the great state of Wisconsin. Yes. When I grow up, I think it was fifty thousand people, and it was it had some universities. It had. It was a big paper mill town when I was growing up. So it was light industry is kind of the seed about quite rural area. It had a paper institute. World-class paper institute. Yeah. It was very, you know, Ari struck that of surnames were were German and English. They ran the factories, and then there were Italian polish names and they worked in the factory. So there was a little bit of a class thing there that I was wasn't that conscious of when I was a kid, but I look back on it. And I think that was really strong there. But it was pretty monoculture is very white. It was it was a good place to grow up. But as I became interested in things outside of their I found Dino, also some very narrow mindedness, and I people get disappointed. I don't mean to slag it. It's was a wonderful place to grow up, and it's probably changed a lot. But I had a lot of trouble. When I was reaching adolescence about really feeling like if you didn't stay line. They take it out. You know, kind of an oppression social oppression. That lead in any securities or you're acting. Maybe maybe I don't know. I don't know. I think you know, my. If you looked at a psychological portrait, probably the reason, why became an actor initially was I came from big family, and you know, you all take your roles, and I was kind of I was probably the least talented, but I became the entertainer. By default. You know, and when you first siblings five sisters, two brothers. Yeah. And I think when it starts out, it's a social thing. And you know, yes, you do sports and things, but what you get reinforcement for is being in the school play. So it starts out as that thing. And then as you get older, I never thought of it as a profession, and I never drained a lot did go to university for a little while. But then something else happens and you start meeting artists and you start meeting. People that make their life. Make a living out of being being an artist and you travel a little bit. And all of a sudden it takes on a different dimension. You use the word before I got to use it on you mask. What you said. I ask.

"So I do that. But very much like like when you talk about a Van Gogh and aquaman, sometimes those worlds don't know about each other. But actually, that's kind of mice because it reminds you there's all kinds of ways to make things us all kinds of stories to tell there's all kinds of ways to perform. And I think when you have a certain kind of flexibility, you're more open to experience, and it's not just about executing. It's really about discovering. And it's about an on Bree. Connecting with some kind of wonder well last year with the Florida project. We are. We are just Gaga how good no the Sean Baker is a great filmmaker. And and that was such a pleasure to do. I've always I've always liked. I've always. Loved watching movies from other cultures particularly where I don't know. Whether the people are actors in like, I liked performances that aren't. Necessarily where you don't recognize the craft or you don't you don't. You know, you don't know whether they're people are actors, and this was a case of I had to be a person. I and that's kind of what I aspire to do all the time. But this was really good occasion to be a person. I act a second and take your cues from the real people in the environment. We were shooting and from the job than people at didn't really sometimes some did. But some didn't really have traditional skills of an actor technique, but they were wonderful at inhabiting things and doing things, and it was such a reminder that sometimes, you know, the lessons can come from my interesting places. Yeah. What what we struck us when we interviewed, Sean. The two of them were nurturing out so hard on the bet Greenwich film. He's got an tastic, film culture. There will francophiles. Just French all, but but that in particular about spanky McFarland. Oh, yeah. Regain a little Rask. We were really struck by his positively. He did not describe the people in that film accepting you as non actors, which which is a fun one. Non-professional? He called them. First timers. What a lovely positive euphemistic. Right. Right. That great. It's true. It's true. And crit crisper gosh is writing, you know, the both of them they come together, and they make this film. And it was it blew your mind and away because of its simplicity, and what you're talking about that kind of thing. And if people if someone didn't know you I don't think they've know that you weren't just that guy, and that's a big deal. And I think that's also what's what's funny about being in these kind of opposing roles Merman and Van Gogh is that it's it's to extremes, but you're an actor. So whether you're painting assign at your motel or trying to get the topless old woman sitting by the pool to put on clothes, you know, all of these different things. It's all it's all in there. And it's all interesting, and and kind of like what a costume designer sometimes sometimes you're not supposed to notice the wardrobe the. Yes. If if the performance is good enough, you shouldn't notice, and that's. I mean there there are all kinds of performance by performances in performances, and I. Sometimes I'd like very actor Lee performances. I appreciate them. And sometimes like doing them, you know, a big mask or something very, Patrick, but I will say that the actors that you know, that I responded to ever since I was a kid we're we're not the movie stars. But they tended to be the more, you know, like be movie actors and horror film actors because they they had a humanity. Sometimes. More professional or polished performers in. Impact?.

You get inside his head. I think so it's a very subjective camera. You're with him. You're with him doing things you're with him walking out nature. You you're with him when he's painting. There's some direct address, you know, to the camera, which is sometimes very irritating device in most films. But I think it's done here in such a way that for me. Anyway, it's it's comfortable. You do get in his head. And because this movie I don't think tries to explain away Van Gogh it tries to imagine what his life was like what his in those last years. And that's really broadly, the approach we'll talk more about I want to point out almost emblematic of your screen career also on tater screens or ground the globe right now in aquaman, also Merman. Merman? It's true, though, every time I think if you. You make a whole lot of movies. And I love it. And it's always interesting, but I had no idea you were command. So my husband, and I went to see it the other day there you are. And I just thought he's Van Gogh and Birmingham. There's not many actors in the world who can go. I've got two roles actually right now and one of them, I'm a fish. Though, though, as as we were discussing earlier, not your first time as a fish. That's true. That's true count finding nemo and finding Dory. Right. Well, you've got a heck of a resume. You really do you really do and that doesn't even count because unless we're in New York when you've been there. We haven't seen you on state. I've not had the pleasure of seeing state and still do I still do fit or work last because I used to work with the company, and basically or almost well, I guess I was twenty seven years every day. I was that theatre that I wasn't on a movie set, and that was most of the time. So it was really my life for a long time. I was up theater actor I and I think it really informed very much how I approach performing in even approached how I might movies. Now, I am no longer with that company. The Wooster group, although it does still exist, and I do theater, but only. Specific shows I've worked with Richard foreman. And Robert Wilson a couple of times and most recently with Romeo Castellucci, the great Italian director..
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.

The opposite of k. pop is retiring from using altogether. All Michael boob way don't go when you sing. 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.
