Winter Storm Leaves Many In Texas Without Power And Water
"Texas is paying the price. But the rest of us. We are learning something about the oil market in this economy from american public media this is marketplace in los angeles. I'm kai ryssdal. It is wednesday today the seventeenth day of february. Good as always to have you along everybody. We talked yesterday. For a bit about the vagaries of the texas energy market which along with the cold and the snow and the ice has left millions of people. Three at least more than that probably. That's millions of course without power and the thing is that even after the weather starts improving eventually the effects of this now three day long crisis are likely to linger and to be felt far beyond the lone star state. That's partly because of how the oil market works or in. Some cases doesn't marketplace adjusted. Ho gets going when the oil supply chain for as it should oil gets pumped out of the ground truck door pipe to a refinery and transformed into products including gasoline diesel and jet fuel. All of these your experience some type of disruption because of the weather. That's matt smith. Director of commodity. Research clipper data which tracks the oil supply chain. He says right now. Oil just isn't getting pumped out of the ground refineries or shutdown and companies aren't exporting barrels. Out of the gulf coast. We're seeing a number that he's different pull such is houston coppola's christie being closed the gulf coast handles roughly half of the country's oil refining capacity. That means the effects of the extreme cold will ripple even further down the supply chain throughout the us says michael weber and energy professor at the university of texas in jet fuel. Atlanta depends on a refinery in east texas which depends on oil production in west texas when it comes to gasoline refineries have a certain amount stored up that trucks can deliver to retail gas stations. For now that's because earlier this month. Gasoline supplies relatively normal levels but energy. Professor tom sang at the university of tulsa says if they're not replenished the question becomes okay along with these refineries to be shut down and how much how many days it supplied is. This actually represents in the meantime prices of oil and gas futures have started rising. Sang says that means all of us could soon start paying more to. I would expect that. Certainly electric bills and natural gas bills are gonna see. Spikes sang says that might be further down the line for the rest of the country. But it's already affecting the millions of texans needing heating oil
Can schools safely reopen? Doctors weigh in
"At the CDC said yesterday that schools can safely reopen for in person classes as long as they follow safety protocols like mask wearing and social distancing. It'll come as a relief to many parents and potentially a source of anxiety for quite a few teachers. Let's go to a school now. The University of Kentucky we're in person. Classes resumed this week, University President Eli Kappa Ludo is here. Mr Coppola to welcome good to speak with you. Good afternoon. Glad to be with you as well. And congratulations. I know you just started your spring semester on Monday. Maybe there was a time when you didn't think that would happen as planned. How are you going to keep everybody safe? Well, we've learned a lot from our fall semester. We're prepared to retest to surveillance testing, waste water testing. We have all kinds of Ways to keep tabs on our numbers on campus. Those who are positive move into isolation, be able to trace get those folks into quarantine and we built a modern public health infrastructure to do that. Well, as you say, you've had some time to study this because of last semester when you and pretty much every other college campus in the country did have cases of covert. Were you able to learn whether or not people were getting sick from spending time inside the classroom? Through our extensive testing on tracing We saw no evidence of classrooms spread. I think we may have traced some 6000 plus students, not in any of those cases that we see evidence of classroom spread. And so where is it spreading? I know some of your no. One of your fraternities was suspended last summer for breaking covert rules. Is that where people were getting infected? I think some of the harsh lesson lessons we've seen outside of college campuses hold for campuses, and that is When we let our guard down, gather and smaller, large groups, for whatever reason is when you see your outbreaks on Yes. Have there been situations where we had to intervene. We're organized groups wanted to hold things. Yes, way had to put a lid on that. We'll look these air college kids, and I'm not trying to let them off the hook by any means, But they're young adults. Sometimes they make bad decisions. How do you make sure they get your message? You know, are you planning on Enforcing these rules is strictly as possible. We did. We started with a positive assumption, though. And with a strong, healthy behavior intervention, what we called our daily four point of That is our screening testing, tracing all those kinds of things we reinforce. And, uh, yes. They're isolated incidents where people didn't behave as we wanted. It is. I look at my office window today. I'm gratified. I walked this campus. I live on this game. I'm very pleased with the way our students have responded. I think they've been good. Good citizens and something else that has really fascinated me. We've had over 3000 cases. 25% of those have been self reported. And I think it's our connectedness on that. They see us as a resource. And when we come out of cove in and decide who we are and what we want to be, and one of the things we can leverage I think this positive influence on health and health behaviors is one we can capitalize on many schools from elementary schools to high schools to college campuses are worried about students mental health over the past few months over the past year, really, including suicide, Unfortunately, What are you noticing on your campus? Uh, this worries may deeply are students who we have asked physically distant have done so, but it has its consequences. Be able to walk down the hall in your residents facility and get that informal counseling plus the physical counseling we have available on campus. That social infrastructure is vitally important. We tried to replace your students are hurting because they don't have it. Yes. Most certainly, but the resilience I've seen has been a gratifying well, we all hope that vaccinating people can help put an end to all of this right. So you're getting shots into arms on your campus? Who's getting a shot? Who's not? We follow the state guidelines. I think we're one of the most efficient in the state right now is one of the regional vaccination centers. We morphed our football stadium into a site. You register online? All of our health colleges are involved where? Vaccinating over 2000 people a day in the community of Let's just on campus. Well, this is the community of Lexington. Starting first are our public and private school employees in hopes of getting our schools to reopen way have vaccinated thousands of public and private school teachers just in the last week and first responders and then people of the age of 70. So to that point, um, you know what's your best prediction? For the fall of 2021, because I'm glad your classes have started in person this week. That's great news. But what's your best prediction for next semester? In the fall? What will that look like? How close to normal? Could it be? I think if we have adequate vaccine supply and are able to complete that, by late spring, we will reopen, but I think we're still gonna have to be cautious and careful. But as someone who I talked to today said, I know that when I received my vaccine yesterday, I wasn't immediately protected. But the hope that seem to arise within May was immeasurable. Alike. Absoluto, president of the University of Kentucky there in Lexington. Thank you, sir. Thank you for your time. Thank you. Stay say.
Car Buying is Changing and All It Took Was a Pandemic
"2021 car buyers or again expected to be kicking the tires in person at the dealer. Rumor got a reporter Gabrielle Coppola says predictions that the business would move online have so far failed to pan out the idea that you know the pandemic changed the nature of auto retail forever. With a little bit far fetched because cars they're not commodities. Coppola says online buyer she spoke with already knew what they wanted. I think if you're not sure, then there really isn't a replacement for just going in and doing a test drive and touching and feeling, and Coppola says many dealers are working to accommodate skittish customers. Bring that, Carter, you and Lady, Test it out. The question is, is that really As
Interview With Roger Corman
"The word legendary is overused but in the case of roger corman. It's well deserved. Roger trained as an engineer at stanford but after four days on the job. He quit to make movies. He began producing and directing low budget. Independent films are getting the underserved teen market. What is films lacked in production value. They made up for imagination. And as roger famously declared he never lost a dime on a picture and he made a lot of them. From nineteen fifty. Five to nineteen seventy-one. He directed over fifty films. Everything from monster. Movies to biker. Pictures to his famous adaptations. The works of edgar allan poe. He focused on producing and film distribution launching the careers of some of the biggest names in hollywood including francis ford coppola jonathan demme joe dante and bringing films by autour like david cronenberg. Ingmar bergman federico fellini to america. Rogers sat down with history of harsh showrunner. Kurt sanga to talk about his remarkable career. You started off directing and producing low budget films in the nineteen fifties How did you deal with the limitations. Faced the early films. I directed i was beginning to director with short schedule and i did what i could. I absorbed films saying. I use certain camera techniques that i've seen before and invented some myself. Now i'm not certain. I really invented them just that i had never seen them in other films. They may not have been as original as i thought. Nine fifty seven directed something like nine films Including tack of the crab monsters personal favourite Fm didn't have a lot of production values. But it was packed. Full of interesting ideas. A what are your memories of that film. Well i remember specifically said didn't have very much money and i remember exactly. The crab monster cost twelve hundred dollars and it was paper my shea but it was very big and it looked pretty good but we were shooting at on the rocks at cabrillo beach and the waves were hitting up against the monster and i could see the waves. Were destroying the back of the monster. So i had to shoot as fast as i possibly could and from only certain angles not to let the audience see that. The vaster was being destroyed. Well we shotted speaking monsters. Tell me about the monster from it. Conquered the world well. The monster from saturn was based upon my studies at the university where i studied physics and i tried within the fantastic world of science fiction to be as logical as possible and i realized a giant planet like saturn would have heavy gravity so therefore a giraffe could not exist but a turtle could because it was close to the ground and would be able to handle the gravity so i had the monster built all about the height of my hand here and thus say was physically correct for the planet saturn. I was having coffee as they were setting up the first shot and beverly garland very hip. Young actress came up to the monster and she looked and she noticed that i was watching her

It's a lot of other things going on in the world that I don't endorse and the month of Amanda I want to be very clear. Pacific to their filmmakers, releasing films that we've outside on this five guests. But yeah, I, am a lifelong sippy. Cup within and I have been looking forward to this film for a very long time and I have been looking forward to talking with you and with everyone else about my beloved Sophia for a very long time. Do you WanNa talk about your relationship via before I, just take over the whole podcast. Yelled I'll talk about it briefly it's interesting. This must be how you feel frequently on this show where you admire and to some extent, even love a filmmakers work but you know that your co host has a. A psychological and almost unhealthy commitment to their work at a devotion to what they put in the world and so you know I'll just say generally speaking I think Sofia Coppola is one of the signature filmmakers of the last twenty, five years I think she is a person who? Has An enormous grasp of beauty and the fragility of beauty. But that she too frequently is. Criticized for only being able to capture that and that there is an enormous amount of depth in the work that she does and I'm excited to kind of unpack how it manifests all of her films because I think there are some major themes that recur but then individually, each movie seems to be after something slightly different every time. So I think she's just a fascinating figure in in recent movie history I guess I've heard you talk about her before but I don't know if I've heard your mission statement for why she matters to you. Wait what is it? I've impacting this all week and my home I just like walk around and I think about all the things that I wanted to say about Sophia. Sophia's Copa Movie I'm all bumble the moment because it's not about words. It's about the music that is playing in the mood that we have an also trying to be slightly cooler that I haven't smell that. You said that has psychological and unhealthy relationship to these movies which I think is definitely true though I'm under no illusion that I'm as cool as vehicle or anyone in her movies it's not happening for me and it will never happen for being. That's okay. We all need update to aspire to or admire or you know just escapism which movies definitely provide but I I just going to be clear I don't really think. I do I do suspects that this is often You feel during the show though maybe not that frequently because part of the appealed. To me is like how tailor-made she seems to be to Mike particular interests and I think that there is a specificity ended up a really personal nature to her work that also really aligns with the specificity of my interests and existence as like slightly neurotic privileged white woman who leads her dad very much and to working through some things in trying to connect with people. You know she makes things at which like here I am you know know thyself? I just call doing our best but these. Some of the appeal is very obvious months. She's a tremendously bigger I mean her films are. Beautiful? They. Create Worlds, the photography, the music, the style fashion, the the performances everything she. She just makes good stuff. And I think whether you're interested in everything she has to say like the craft is pretty objectively accomplished. She also she makes movies about women and particularly young white women. An interest of mine and she also makes movies about celebrity fame in Hollywood like royalty, which is another version of fame and. The kind of the experience of being a woman expectations, but also the experience of. Being famous person or someone who is being observed and looks looked at and what that's like from inside and someone who is obsessed with celebrities her whole life. And obsessed with the concept of of fame, it's fascinating window something that I have access to. So you know subject matter style and then I think another thing that I really admire about her. And that to me makes her really unique filmmaker is kind of level. Of Observation and bill watchfulness of her thumbs I. Coppola would be a great journalist except heavily she doesn't have to be she said a lucrative and successful business believe it or not. New Tomes are more successful than journalism I don't really know what to say about that. Different, podcasts. You really get a sense of what she sees in any situation ended the attention to detail always really pops out at me whether it's like a sprinkler going off at the wrong time or at upset of shoes were someone making a jelly for something that is bunny. Funny there's just you have a real sense of the world has she particularly that she's able to communicate that without words So clearly and I think entities of that ability I think it's really singular As a person who talks way too much so that there and my. Soliloquy at least part-time She. Obviously also spend very successful from the span of I. Think Nine, hundred, ninety, nine, thousand of eyes and I was a teenager so. A cool person like ten years older than me defining what it is to be cool and successful in an industry that. Is usually not does.

You really bossing me around today and you deserve to you feel. Your House drew. That's true okay so FIA Sofia Coppola she's such a brilliant filmmaker. She really is if people haven't I mean, I'm sure they have because she has so many noteworthy films. But if you haven't seen them, please watch they all have a very specific law. I'M GONNA I'm GonNA suggest the fingerprint is so recently, Bob wrote some songs for us for some new shows that are coming out. and. We're listening to all these different songs, probably eight and total at the end of it. We both were like Oh. You know the unifying thing of all Bob Vex music is that motherfucker just has so much soul he can't not have sole. Yes and I would argue that Sofia's thing is like every frame has emotion it. It's just a very emotional experience share something about the way it's lead. To fall everything she makes is really gorgeous I'm not surprised that she was into photography and fashion. Yes. It's all very stylized but but not in a you know sometimes things are stylized and it's it gets in the way of everything else force nurse An. Yeah. This does that it was prioritized over the stories in. There's none of that imbalance just all their and their story which makes me so excited to see her new movie 'cause I. Wonder How that's GonNa get incorporated with this like daddy daughter Buddy Phil also like her and Bill Murray just have some undeniable chemistry pressure. Yeah. So Fun I probably my. Would you say is your favorite Bill Murray? Movie? Lost, in translation. What are other ones will rushmore for me? So brilliant. That's such. A good movie as that's probably my fave make sense she brought him up that they're bros. away. He's also in Tenenbaum's right uh-huh. Yeah. He's also in czyz owes and all the. Yes and it's all Ding Ding Ding connected Kaz. Sofia's cousin is Jason Schwartzman or it's May work together a lot and Jason Schwartzman is in all the West movies. I want her to make a movie with my hero Nick Cage who's also her cousin Oh? Yeah. Yeah. Because I want to have the Travolta resurgence of pulp fiction that'd be great Ding. Ding Day. Fiction okay. 'cause you talked about pulp fiction being the briefcase seen similar to the whispering seen in Lawson translation. So then I looked up what are some other unanswered questions in movies? Oh. Okay. I don't know a lot of these but you might. So one is blade runner go well enough. Okay. It saying is decker D- D-. Card a replicant oh. Okay. Okay..

"Now you specialize in really being able to capture the Voice of young women repeatedly, and I wonder as you age like Bill Murray is a perfect example. If I line up all my comedy heroes of the eighties, the shelf life is not great. He seems to be the single one that I loved in the eighties that is. Still completely relevant and I'm still shocked by what he says or interested. So he's done the impossible but I I wonder as a director, has it gotten harder? Is it just the same or do you even think about that? Working on this? I'm writing having little kids and at this moment my life and I was like so boring who wants to hear about middle aged life and like a not in a crisis point my husband talking about like if you're in a good moment your life like what you have to make stuff about if you're. Struggling or a crisis like a boring. But then at the same time, I wanNA make work that's personal that I can try to connect with what I see around me and what I'm experiencing. So it's super cool but I'm just going to write about what? I'm struggling with right now and I hope that other people in other women can relate to that I haven't seen. That so much in a film. I think it's fun to think about men and women and relationships in this context of this man of that generation or daughter that's not full of anger. There's love there to and Rasheeda I talked about that too because her father another generation and says things and she has to say, Dad, you can't do that. You can't say that you know. So I just thought it was a unique moment were this generation. They're such a big divide and with so much understandable anger between women and men of that generation to do something with playfulness in love at the differences I think. So much of life is like being able to hear people in a way that gets through and sometimes the relationship is so pertinent to whether or not. You can even hear somebody like I don't know what your experiences but I've been with my wife for thirteen years and it's like I'm ashamed to admit sometimes I have to stare at her in go she's a human who has needs to she's not the co-pilot is fucking plane crash were these two cats. It's so easy. Ask them is this like other person facilitating these people's needs and I got a real look at her and go like she is a girl who wants things in the you know like I'm a little boy who still wants this and that and and my mom can say things to me that say my wife has said to me but coming from my mom and Mike Young, I can hear that for some reason. Yeah that's a good thing. Do you want me to go out on the press tour and I can talk about the movies got a pretty good handle on What's going on with the release? Feel anyone who's in your situation I, just feel dreadful for. The commitment of filming a movie, it's yours our life. Thanks I feel so lucky that we finished our sound makes like a week before the world shut down. So I felt for people that were filming and other projects interrupted like how hard that would be we finished, and then we all go home and hunker down. We finished our work and we got to shoot in New York. City which is feels like a period movie now like we didn't realize how lucky or just to be able to be walking around New, York and these restaurants so.

"And I'd love the idea like Father Daughter Buddy movie. And I thought just GONNA get over my fear and he's so great to work with him. I knew that he could make the character lovable could have been very unlikable. He would bring is hard to it and helped me out. Yeah. In what is on the rocks about do you hate telling the premises of your movies? Now I'm not I don't look I'm good at it. Down and natural I now but I I, I'm gonNA manner of it. Hopefully, a friend of mine had it story she suspected her husband was having a thing with one of his co workers and she added a playboy father who insisted they spy on the guy and she was like hiding in the bushes spying on her husband and I and I was like, Oh, my God that would be a fun premise for a buddy movie, the father and daughter, and I love the thin man movies the difference that then man worries of the thin man, there was a detective couple and they would just drink martinis and solve mystery. Of the whole series that I love. So that was kind of D. as I wanted the two of them to be drinking Martinez and discussing relationships while they're spying on your husband. Okay. So Dad's helping daughters spy on daughter's husband yeah, and in the meantime I remember growing up with my dad and his buddies like telling me like it is but what men are really thinking. About like relationships I just thought it was such a funny kind of different generation discussing men, women and relationships, and how your parents affect the way you pick a partner or how you look at them to their point of view or also what comfort level you have kind of boundaries. Wise. If that's the right way to say it, it's like, yeah if you had kind of progressive parents than the blueprint is a little more flexible or unconventional than maybe your. Way. You could go the other way people go the other way or my world. My Mom and dad were best friends even though they were divorced in my mom was best friends with Oliver XS and their XS all around at part. Of I grew up that way and I'm friends with all my ex's and when I met Chris like I do not understand this I've never met any. Close, with all their exes in this.

"The movie set in a prison and even though I got to leave at night it was ten and twelve hours a day in jail cell. And I couldn't spread my arms all the way right. So just this notion that could be touching to walls had this like cumulative impact on both the other actor and I I'm not complaining at all I I'm only saying that these fake environments can kind of inhabit you in bizarre ways that you're maybe not intending and I wonder if the fun way did that environment for site seep into, you were you able to feel like you were experiencing it in the? Period at all, it wasn't credible people that work. There had the same restraints when you walk into one of the banquet halls and seeing it all set up with food and people living in, it almost goes or something. So it did feel like you were how in communication with the history there and to see it kind of reenacted was really striking when you were there in person do you ever wish you would've taken like a ton of mushrooms and just wonder? So that, you could actually believe you're they're real. That's a good idea. Yes I. Mean it might fuck up your day of work but yeah, that'd be terrifying anyone else to do. Out of it, but it's a good idea. Do you WANNA shoot the wider the close up I blew let's go. Find a wand around for side altered I. You just gave me an idea which is have to imagine you have director friends. You guys should be stopped being by each other's sets mushrooms. Okay. Of course, you can't do it while you're directing because you'd fuck it but but. Whoever's friends with Benny off like go to game of thrones. fucking mass the Bloomberg out of your mind in being game of thrones for a couple hours. It is, and if you have access to it, it'd be it'd be a shame not to yeah wes Anderson World. Oh Wow. You all. That would be maybe the best the details you'd spin out on the symmetric a squirrel cost. I just got another idea I think we could almost finance movies if we had a couple of period things in you did sal for a lot of money. Let's say two hundred Grand I, think you could get tech billionaires to come live in verse for the day on Shrooms and be in your background, and you can maybe finance a whole movie like this on your full of.

Unless you've had a public falling out, I don't know about which left care since she's like my sister for the little sister to me what is the thing for you to that makes you so simpatico you know. I think it's just like how you click with certain people in certain directors have their muses and I just feel like she understands I don't have to explain it to her. She gets what I'm trying to convey and she just gets it. She has the same sense of humor and taste, and she does not what I'm looking for. There's something about her that I am drawn to because she seems kind of effervescent extroverted in a way that I am not but then she has this depth finder is that you don't expect from a kind of sparkly blonde.

Zal who previously made twenty eleven the snow town murders than in two thousand fifteen. He did Macbeth. Which starred Michael Faster and Marion Cotillard? All three of them re teamed for two thousand sixteen assassin's creed now. Kelly gang is set in colonial Australia. Where Kelly and his group of anarchists violently rebel against their British rulers nineteen. Seventeen George MCI plays Ned Kelly. The film also stars Russell. Crowe Nicholas Holt Thomasson. Mackenzie and Charlie Hunnam so strong. Cast their Adam. You're able to get an early look at this one before. It's on demand release. Did the cast live up to. Its Promise House the film in general some of it definitely did in terms of the cast. This is actually my first. Kerr Zal film. Haven't seen any of the other three that you mentioned despite the fact that Michael Fast Bender has been in those two that you mentioned and I'm always down for Good Shakespeare Adaptation. I can't compare obviously this film the Kelly Gang to his adaptation of Macbeth specifically but there is a lot of the Scottish play in his telling of Ned Kelly. Se Davis from our beloved. The Baba Duke plays his mother in this film and she is not someone to cross. She's domineering she's vengeful. It's born from years of oppression as a woman and as an Irish woman living under English rule in Australia. You hear her in the trailer. Seda a young Ned. You're a man. Now you go out and show the world. This isn't a gentle mother's encouragement. It's an order and like Macbeth himself. As ned gets closer to his fate the matter he gets and that unhinged hallucinatory spirit is. What colonel taps into visually think about the late nineteenth century? We get in. John Hill coats the proposition as a counterpoint. This is not that at all. This is realism clashing with fantasy to the point where there are times in certain sequences and shots. Josh especially a recurring motif of a man riding a horse. That feels more like more door than the Bush way outside Melbourne. And so I've dropped Macbeth. I've dropped Lord of the rings throw in the assassination of Jesse James by the Coward. Robert Ford and the pop aesthetic of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Except with punk instead and you get some sense of what watching the true history of the Kelly. Gang is really like which may sound really amazing to you and other people. Yeah I'm I'm hooked so far. Yeah it's definitely a lot and honestly it was a little bit too much for me. Wants so much to be this fiery sneer. That doesn't conform do conventional biography and it's full of these big ideas about colonialism and storytelling and masculinity and challenging gender and sexual norms. The gang the Kelly gang actually wears dresses for me. It's just all too much of a performance of assault to really embrace and actually MCI is part of it. He's a really intriguing presence and has an unsettling physicality that he definitely brings to this role. A presence was kind of all he was in nineteen seventeen. That's kind of by the design of that film and I haven't read anything about his performance but I wouldn't be shocked to learn that he went really method here that he he went so deep. And as I said there's there's an intensity to it there's a real physicality to it but he's burrowed so deep into it. So deep into Ned Kelly psyche that he never emerges for me and I can appreciate the audacity of what Kerr's doing here and his. I our first shot of young. Ned actually is him peering through a slit in his makeshift home while his mother is engaged in a sex act with a paying customer. That's a British officer played by Hunnam and then later at the end it is big showdown with authorities. He's wearing iron over his head for protection. With the sliver is is that matches that exact same point of view so crucial knows what he's doing absolutely and he does have a really game cast Russell. Crowe shows up for a little bit in this movie. And there's a lot of fun as outlaw. Who Basically pays for? He buys a young Ned as an indentured servant to teach him the trade. And I really like Nicholas Holt. In this movie. He shows up maybe about midway through as a really charming despicable and entitled English constable. Who BEFRIENDS NED in the family? Until the family decides that they're not going to subjugate themselves to him like he expects everyone to do so some juicy fund performances here and crystals definitely doing allot as I said in terms of the filmmaking sounds like there might even be a little bit of animal kingdom in there too with the mother son Dynamic and of course the Australians setting so I. I'm intrigued by those comparisons. We'll we'll have to see if the catch up with if it works a little bit better for me. The True History of the Kelly gang is available to rent on demand right. Now the new one you caught up with Josh is called Sela and the spades the directing debut of Theresa Poh. It had its debut back in January at Sundance and it came to Amazon prime. This past weekend in your letterbox review you wrote any movie that mixes the DNA of mean girls. Brick and schooldays has my attention. We're all over the place with our references in this show so far. Tell me more. Yeah this this could be a lazy short and in some ways doing this exercise. But I think it's it is really helpful in this case because those are great films with distinct styles each trying to do something that maybe you hadn't quite seen before done in that way and mixing it all together is really exciting. That also puts a ton of pressure on a relatively small film like Sela and the spades and so I don't know if it's the sort of pressure this movie can entirely bare but I like that. All of these elements are in here that the basic scenario is selling. The speights takes place at an elite boarding school and we follow the illicit dealings and also the the relationships among various student factions there called and each of these factions. They're essentially like criminal gangs. So Sela played by Lovey Simone. She runs the drug-dealing spades. And you know there are maybe some Macbeth Lady Macbeth specifically comparisons to make here in her ambition and the way she holds grip on power. She does take an underclassmen under her wing. But as we come to learn you know it may not be the most altruistic reasons that underclassmen played by Celeste O'Connor now both of those performances are really strong by Simone and O'Connor There are some good supporting turns to. I could see this being one of those smaller. First films where two or three of the actors in them and this happened with mean girls as well right pop up in later films and you really see what what great talents. They have their There's also the whole criminal element calls on brick of course that this is going on among high schoolers beneath the adults is. It's kind of amazing. How little the adults have to play in in this world And then there are some really striking flourishes by PLO as director. And here's where some of the the school days Spike Lee school days comparisons come in because Sela is also the head of the spirit squad for the school and they have a direct address to the camera routine just about what. It's like to be a seventeen year old

"coppola" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Back with more of my interview with Francis Ford Coppola about making his masterpiece the Godfather we spoke in twenty sixteen after the publication of the the notebook. He put together while preparing to make the movie the notebook he carried around and referred to throughout the shoot. Did you worry though that the film was setting the right. Ah Ample because the characters became such heroes of popular culture. And they'll were Italian Americans who felt that like you were discrediting Italian Americans. Well you know in truth. I was worried about so many things in making of that movie. I you know I was about twenty nine when I started. I had two kids in one about to be born and had absolutely no money. I was making what had become a more important film than it was when I got the opportunity because the book had continued and you'd become more and more important than I had no power and yet I had real opinions on how it should be done and I was always just trying to luke bluff the the studio to let me do it my way and and I it was just the most frightening and depressing thing experience. I think I've ever had. I'm sorry to hear it. Thank you so much for making the movie in spite of it so You right when you actually. You are invited to direct the movie by by the studio by paramount. You sat down and read the book and you write. I read eagerly but barely finished it. And you almost didn't make the movie because you you didn't really. He liked the book and despite of the Nice things he said about Mario Puzo. What didn't you like about the book? Well I had thought from its title and intriguing logo and the name Mario. Are you puzo that this was a kind of Italian intellectual writer like a kind of You know more obvious something and it was going to be a piece piece about the subject of power and while indeed it was about power. I found the book itself. More like a kind of bestseller attempt like Nursing Wallace Book. People don't remember it but maybe a third. If not more of the Book Concerned This Young Woman Lucy Mancini and her private anatomy problems. uh-huh and love affair with the doctor who fix them and I just couldn't believe How low class that was but that was you know not included in the movie and so it didn't didn't didn't harm the remaining part which we all know? Did you ever tell Mario. Puzo your thoughts about the novel. Sure he knew new and and you know He. He had written a beautiful book called the Fortunate Pilgrim which he felt was the best book he wrote which also was about immigrants but it was very respected by writers and and it was. What's the beautiful book? But it didn't make money you know like so many die in my head toward his children and they wanted to give his children some better life and he wrote this hoping it could make a lot of money for him so it did so you write to yourself in the Godfather Notebook with the Godfather there is always the possibility ability of immediate and sudden violence. That's certainly true. You had to decide how explicitly violent to make. What was your conversation frustration with yourself? About how the violence should be handled. Well I confess that I was very impressed with author pens Money money and Clyde and thought about that one watching Sonny Corleone shot without a doubt and I thought that the the effects the be depiction of violence and money Clyde always had an imaginative. Twist to it that it's one. Think this he someone shoot someone but if there's a detail away the blood turns into mist and I saw that in In in Bonnie and Clyde I thought was just absolutely wonderfully done and I looked up. Who had done the special effects and that wonderful man? Ad Flowers his name was Worked on the Godfather and On apocalypse now and he was just the most You know in the film industry you deal with a lot of people on the crew. Who are sort of genius in the rough life? You know the way they come up with ideas for special effects. And what have you and I've been blessed to To have those people helped me and making Camila films are tremendous collaboration. As you know. It's not it's not a one man show by any means okay. Well perhaps the most at least one of the most most memorable scenes implying violence in the godfather is low horse's head scene. It's the scene good example because it's not done in the movie the way it's done in book. Yes okay so let let's why don't you set up what happens like what what happens in that. Same well It's a famous movie producer. Who is proud of his? It's a stable of a beautiful stallions and priceless. A horse could cost the half a million dollars or more in the forties and They've asked him to cooperate with their their requests to give the singer the role and What happens famously? Is that the the the producer wakes up and he sees a shadow in. I'll describe it. The way it is in the book he sees shadow and he opens his eyes and he looks and he sees the severed head of his beloved and prized stallion. That has been decapitated when I had to direct that I I thought well gee you know maybe it would be interesting if at first the man to trick them to make it think something else that maybe he had been mortally wounded that he he wakes up and he feels something weird and he uncovers the sheet and there's some blood and maybe his leg has been shot shot off or he's been castrated or you know let the audience thinks something else has happened and then as he panics and flings the bloody sheets Away it would then reveals the severed head of the Horse in your notebook you keep a list of pitfalls of things that you're afraid to fall. English should avoid the pitfall to not fall into for this senior right. If the audience does not jump out of their seat on this one you have failed too much in the Cormon horror film tradition would be a mistake and you had worked for Corman early on in your career right One must find the perfect balance of horror without losing the threat of the overall film. Deliver it and get out so You want it a kind of horror element but not to make it kind of cheap horror film. Yeah and also everyone knew they had read the book that was one of the famous scenes of the book. So how could I mislead lead them to think that maybe what they thought was going to happen. wasn't gonNA happen for a second and that's why put the Horse's head in the sheets so that he you could think the blood was his own blood. At first so casting Marlon Brando was just such a really brilliant stroke and stroke of luck as Europa but again him And I WANNA play. Mary Puzo told me in Nineteen ninety-six when I interviewed him about Casting Brando but how Brando got cast in the movie so Can I play that for you. And then okay. So this. Is Mario Puzo. Who wrote the novel? The Godfather speaking with me in nineteen ninety-six about casting Marlon Brando. I'm the guy picked burn. You did pick Brenda all sure I I wrote him a letter and he called me up and we had chat and then I tried to get paramount to take him and they refused and then director came on and picture. I talked to Director Francis Copeland. He managed to talk paramount than to letting Brando play the role but was was my data cache Branko which caused me a lot of trouble before finally got done. What did you say in your letter to Marlon Brando when you were inviting him to play the part? I I think it was something like help. They'RE GONNA kill. We're GONNA kill me. They're gonNA cast things Donnington Danny Thomas's the well he well. He's GonNa buy paramount so we could play the role at that time. Paramount wasn't really worth that much. And then you communist was very richest television and I read an item. He who's GonNa buy paramount pictures so we could play the godfather so I scared me so much value brand though I knew some people who noon so you know I had an entree okay. And he gave me very good advice. He said no studio will hire me. Wait until you get a director and then talking to do. And he's quite right when I talked to the studio they swatting behind Randall. Okay Francis Ford Coppola. You're the director. I suppose Puzo Talk to you and you made it happened can. Can you pick up the story from there well It's true that Mario had always liked the idea of brand. At you know Mario was often bayshore. He was not really on the scene so much. Even a lot of my work with him was sending him drafts in him. Writing notes so Although he had posed the idea of of the Godfather being Brando I don't even know if he told me that Because I just was hit by a a whole bunch of ideas from the studio Danny Thomas was one Ernest Borgnine. It was a whole bunch of of ideas. Even Carlo Ponti was suggested and finally I I came down to the thing about the character of of That character was that you know you couldn't find anyone knew as we had done for all the other parts Alpa. Chino was totally unknown. Johnny Sal was bobby vowel Israel. He wants a lot of New People. Got Big parts but like a man who was supposed to be in sixty sixties couldn't be Lou and like had never been in anything before because what was he doing all those years so finally with my colleague and Casting Fed Reuss. We said well who the two greatest actors in the world so we said well Lonzo Livia and Marlon Brando. Each one had a the difficulty of for that part with Olivier was British. He was perfect. AG looked like he looked like One of the real guys Genovese Genovese And Brando was only forty seven years old. He was extremely handsome as always long flowing blond hair and most important important he had just been in some pictures. Notably one by the great but Pontecorvo called Burn That was a huge each flop tremendous financial flops. Oh the studio felt. That Brando was Supposedly difficult to work with Sort of irresponsible responsible you know would cause big delays. The film was only budgeted for two and a half million dollars. You have to understand. It wasn't like we put throw money around. And my decision decision to make it in the forties and have period cars and shoot in New York was already impacting the cost. That's one of the reasons why I was so unpopular but they also hated my Ki- my casting ideas they hated Al Pacino for the role of Michael and they hated Marlon Brando for the role role of Of of the of the Godfather and I was told categorically by the president of paramount's Francis says the president of paramount pictures I tell you here and now Marlon Brandin will never appear in this motion picture and I forbid you to bring it up again but you one. How did you win when he said I forbid you to bring it up again? I tamed that I just fell on the floor on the carpet. And like you know as if you know what and then I said what. Am I supposed to do if you tell me. I can't even discuss it. How can I be a director? If if if the part I think should be a cast that you wouldn't even let me talk about it and I said all right we'll we'll we'll tell you with the swipe one if he will do the movie for free to if he will put up with. He'll do a screen test and three. If you'll put up a million in dollar bond that he will in no way have any misbehavior. That causes the You know the overrun of the picture budget. Then you can do it so so I said I accept you know so at least they were saying if I did. Three things have a screen test if I could get him to do the movie for nothing and if I could Having put up a million dollars which is absurd But but at least I said I accept meaning. Okay now I can talk about it. So did he do the movie for free. No I called him up and I said to Marlon Marlon you know of course. This is an Italian American. You know. Wouldn't it be fun if we could like do a little experimental and kind of Improv and see what playing an Italian might be like. That was my way to talk to an actor essentially asking for a screen test. But I didn't put it in those ways and I knew that if I could do something with this little screen tests that was convincing the the absurd idea of him doing it for nothing. Although they didn't pay much more than nothing I think their pay scale which was an insult And obviously the putting up a bond onto prevent misbehavior. was you know. Sometimes you know you you you you you say you accept terms meaning that you just have a way to continue so the important thing was to do some sort of a little screen tests that I could get on tape and show till all these executives so you played this kind of little trick and he did he did Improv on. Or whatever on on on film for you what did he bring two that audition that he didn't realize wasn't always heard the rumor that Marlon Brando didn't like loud noises and he always wore things in his era. It took a couple of my colleagues from San Francisco from this period of you know having young filmmakers all Africa and I told them all to dress in black and no one was to speak speak with sign language so we descended on Marlins House early..
"coppola" Discussed on Fresh Air
"You know like a game mover chump. Kills a guy with a video game or something and then like the audience laughs and I I was not on like terrified of Freddie so that that was an interesting period in horror where the audience was sort of invited invited to relate to the monster kind of started with this stalker. Vision idea from the seventies where you know. The camera would be lurking behind the trees. He's watching you know some sorority girl taking a shower and you know that whole world of things is terrifying trying to me. Because it's the asking you identify with your internal Predator. Something it's it's very very disturbing so one of the things that you adr on this is this fear of somebody kind of like invading your brain like not only getting under your skin but like invading your mind and that's been a theme of a lot out of horror films like invaders from Mars if if you've seen that I haven't seen A great one I think is from like the nineteen fifties like aliens land and transplanted Alanthea's things into people's heads. And they. They look like the same person except they look hypnotized and they're not behaving the same because they're under the control of these invaders from Mars But the main character in your movie the Guy He's a smoker and his girlfriend's mother offers to hypnotize him and help help him stop smoking. Because that's one of the things she does in her therapy practice and his friend or Decem. Don't she might get into your mind. This figures into the story three in a larger way that I won't describe but I really watching the film. I was really wondering. Are you a smoker had. Did you try hypnosis I used to smoke I have not tried hypnosis but it is something that you know I think is kind of universally scary to people right this idea that Oh god what when somebody if somebody can probe into my psyche. There's no telling what how vulnerable I'll be and What kind of influence they could have albeit? This is a a stereotype. But it's it's grounded in reality Eh. Black people have a have not had the experience with therapy as a whole that white people have. I AH I. At least. There's there is a heightened fear In the black community of this idea of going to a psychiatrist. It's like no. I'm good I'm going to go to church. You know So that was another reason why I thought this sort of mental probing this whole thing. You know Chris would sit down in this chair are with with missy played by Catherine Keener. You know I could just hear the you know the black people in the audience gone. No no don't do it. Come on get out of that room right. Now get out get out get out you can sort of here feel that and Chris. Himself is is appropriately skeptical of the process as well. Oh so this is like a seems to me like a turning point in your career. It's established you as a writer and director and taken a new kind of away from your other identity as a comic writer and performer. I mean there are some comic aspects in this movie but anybody coming in and just like expecting it to to be a comedy is going to be surprised. Because it's it's it's it's not that Why did you decide to step away? From what what you were best known for her. which is comedy no? I think I've always felt that I would actually be better at this than I was. A comedy comedy It's just one of these things that comes from a deeper place in my my soul And probably just comes from the fact that in order to deal with my own fears I wanted to be able to sort of master them So it's it's really just what I wanna be doing and I love comedy i. I've been in love with with comedy as well from a very early early age and it's a comedy to me is a different way of doing the same thing it's also meant to face our fears and to be able to laugh them off off and away but this thing is just it's just simply my truest passion Jordan. Thank you so much. Thank you Terry. Jordan peele recorded in twenty seventeen. We're going to conclude our series of some favorite interviews of the past decade with Francis Ford. Coppola we spoke in twenty sixteen after the publication of the notebook. He kept when he was making his masterpiece the godfather he told some terrific stories about how he cast and directed the film. The notebook contains his thoughts. That's about each scene including the pitfalls he wanted to avoid. The notebook also includes pages from the novel that the movie is based on Mario Puzo novel the Godfather Not Father Coppola's notes in the margins. The movie starts with these words. I believe in America. America made my fortune. That's the character Bona Sarah who has come to the Godfather. Don Vito Corleone to ask a favor Buna. Sarah's daughter was brutally beaten after she resisted two boys who had tried to take advantage of her bona. Sarah says he went to the police like a good American. The boys were tried in court but the judge gave them a suspended sentence since and they went free that very day now bona. Sarah wants revenge against those boys. The Godfather play Marlon Brando. Offers this response and now me gentlemen. It is but this is the first time ever came council. Remember.
FTC Amps Up Focus on COPPA and Content Creators
"But another controversy. That's also playing Allen. Youtube is one. That's going to roll into twenty twenty and beyond around and it all has to do with a law from the nineteen nineties intended to protect children and that law is a US law. It's called Children's online privacy Z.. Protection Act OR COPPOLA'S C. O. P. P. A.. It was again. I established as long in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight and in two thousand nineteen the Federal Trade Commission can also known as the FTC brought a suit against Youtube and alleged that youtube had been illegally collecting the personal information of children without their parents. Consent the kids were watching videos on Youtube. That what they were watching was being tracked by Youtube and that this was creating a digital title fingerprint. That advertisers were using to target advertising towards those children and the children being too young to consent to this meant that the whole practice under COPPA was illegal and specifically that the company was using this quote in the form of persistent identifiers that are used used to track users across the Internet into quote so in other words. This'll be the sort of thing. Where if you were watching a bunch of videos about elephants and then you happen to navigate over to say Amazon you might see a bunch of suggestions that relate in some way to elephants and the concern was that this was going to be targeting kids and there was no way for kids to give legal consent to allow that to happen and that data has value in it and children's privacy scene security also has value to them so that was the problem? Well Youtube would settle this lawsuit out of court. They paid one hundred seventy million dollars in fines which really sounds like a lot but for Youtube. It's nothing and if that's where it all ended we would just wrap up the story and beyond with it but in in addition to the fine the company had to agree to create a system that is compliant with COPPA so this would mean that any creator who is making child directed content meaning content meant to be viewed by children would be affected by this. They would have to be COPPA compliant. They would have to make. I'm sure that they were running channel. That was not gathering information about the The children watching it that they were not building in targeted advertising That they had to self identify as being a Creator who's creating child directed content. You had to actually go into your low profile and click and say whether or not you're channel was meant for kids or not but this raises questions like what exactly is child directed and it has a lot of creators nervous right now because because there are creators who do for example in boxing videos and some of them are clearly meant for kids some of them are hosted by kids and clearly meant for kids but there others where it may not be kids it may be for people who really are into collecting toys that are from their favorite. You know franchises for example. So toyin boxing would likely be in the spotlight. Creators who use video games are likewise concerned. there are people who are using video games to tell stories. There are people use. Let's plays or play throughs. But they're not necessarily meant for kids. There's also people who are working in animation and that animation may not be meant for kids but the general perception is that cartoons are for children and they're concerned that they will be interpreted as being child directed when they don't intend to be and that they'll be affected by this. There's a lot of fear that this is going to have an effect on monetization so that people might not be able to get paid for what they're making which means they'll probably start making it. I mean you gotTa make your living They may move on to a different platform than youtube. Or they may just stop entirely Every single violation of COPPA can be fined up to a maximum of forty two thousand five hundred thirty dollars. Now keep in mind some of these channels have hundreds or thousands of videos up online so if they were identified as being child directed and that their material wasn't COPPA compliant and they could get that maximum fine for every single video. That seem to be That was on their channel so the cost could be staggering. So it's possible. ospel will see entire channels. Go dark with past videos hidden away or deleted. All Ella fear that mislabeling situation could result ZOLT and massive fines. And there's still a lot of uncertainty around this issue and we're not entirely sure how it's all going to play
"coppola" Discussed on Radio Cherry Bombe
"Here's my talk with Sofia Coppola. A lot of people don't realize they might be like why Sofia Coppola on Radio Cherry bomb. What does does she have to do with the food world while she has lots to do with the food world? The copland name is closely associated with film making. But there's a coppola wind food and hospitality. Empire you you might not know about and includes everything from villas and hotels to cafes the Great Women Spirits collection I learned about that earlier and the world renowned Francis. Ford Coppola Coppola winery. So I'm curious via what is your role in that side of the family business. Yeah we moved to Napa Valley when I was in first first grade so I grew up in Napa. Anum in Rutherford and Wine country. My Dad having Italian relatives that used to make wine and their basement in New York thought. Oh we we should make some wine and so he started just making wine on our property and then turned into a small business. And then you know of all these years. It's it's grown on and that's really you know our main family bizarre. His you know his main business. And then we also have our filmmaking company but but yes I grew up on a winery around wine and we always had wine on the table and food was a big you know might add cooking. My parents cook going. Imagine having the main focus for Italian American family is coming together for meals and who did most of the cooking both my parents. That's what mostly my dad. Yeah he can just kind of throw anything together and whatever He. I always want to look at a certain point. I wanted to learn how to cook. I didn't really cook growing up. And he's I just feel that utilise together and I was like no I don't I need a recipe. I need to know the amounts like your recipe girl. Yeah he he has intuition and I am too nervous in the kitchen. I enjoy enjoy cooking but I'm not. I don't feel at ease so I need it to be explained carefully so I appreciate it and my mom's cook too but he made the recipes that he his family only grew up on every Easter. Makes this thing called pizza. Ted With rustic pie kind of Quiche station Christmas Eve. We have Octopus Pasta You know these traditions that his his mom started. Did you know your grandparents. Yeah Yeah I grew up as a kid being around them and my grandmother Morella Morella. His mom was very glamorous and made all these dishes and she had sheet vinyl records as her place mats. She's very Stylish oh well where she sort of feel around in the kitchen did the glamour extend to the Oh yeah she was always glamour. She always had like kind of coral nail Polish and jewelry jewelry and Turquoise I sat on a block flip and Chinese Pajama top since it yes she was always always had look. Oh my Gosh I want to see some pictures of her. So do you have a role in the family. Like food and wine might stat always tried soon vo involved my brother and I 'cause it's a family company that he wants to continue. Continue on the same way with always having us on the film set so officially I'm a board member That's accessible on the wine route. But I I'm not. Does that mean to be on the board I A I go to meetings and give my opinions and feedback and try to learn as much as I can about it but I'm not that involved day to day but the when I was a kid he said I'm going to make you a champagne that someday and I used to love the curial because a teenager is must really be you know two pairs for the first time I loved cure-alls and I thought it was like the chic EST during. Yeah no I know. I haven't had one in years but when I was sixteen I was interning in Perez. And I think that's where I knew about them but he always said. Oh when you're twenty one I'm going to make your champagne. And then he he really did and so called Sophia yes I have my name Sake. Champagne that he made for me and it's I think they do was kind of in the style per second it has mascot and it's dry but it's fun to have your own I drink. It's also one of the prettiest bottles I remember when it came out because it was so different from sort of other sparkling wines and champagnes because it was almost minimalist yet. I love the Design my dad design the label based on a French jam Jam label and then. I don't know what they had to have the pink Sullivan but I love those very festive. And it's it's nice to give as a gift and it's always have on hand and then he came up with the can't Dan idea which I don't. I don't think that was ever done before I think it was. Your family's company was the very first one to put wine can. Yes they did making this this little. It'll sparkling wine and Kim was his invention which I thought was always. That was really fun. We put them in our pockets and bring them to movies. And so it's it's fun to have and have in the fridge. wjr Did your dad. Actually wait until you were twenty one before launching came out probably a little off after that because it took longer to to actually make but yeah I remember we had A launch party. Do you risk ofi sure that that's how we met actually get so resear- helped throw a party in the basement of sure. Another club club called doubles in the ninety S. We had this really fun Launch Party and Ninety Yeah yes announcement around for a while but yeah and now so feels like a full fledged collection yet and they started expanding it and they have a rosy that I really love enjoying the summer and There's a woman. Winemaker Thandi Vulcan. WHO's the Winemaker and there's a Riesling and Chardonnay Chardonnay to you ever have to step foot in the wine shop anymore or do you just you know I do. There's one actually in our neighborhood on living in the West village seagraves on Hudson which is nearer butcher near the Great Burger. I was telling you about but I so I do like to try other wines and be married to a Frenchman. I also appreciate French wine. He actually he his winery to my kids have wonders on both both sides. So funny it's called a Chateau Torri and they make a great Rosaiah. There in that region in Provence. So do you still go back and forth between Paris and here yoido place there such. You'll look to spend time there but we're more based here because our kids are in school and more in New York I noticed you even have a non alcoholic wine named after one of your producers. Oh Yeah Mr Yuri. My Surgery Henley doesn't drink and I wanted to make him a festive drink as he is a sophisticated guy and he's he's like what I want to drink Martinelli on special occasions so we made I think it's a really cute bottle design. He was a bow. Ties local Bowtie. But yeah I I love this product. I have to to get it out there more because because we only made a little bit but I feel like I feel like people who don't drink. Alcohol can enjoy it because it tastes. Good it's basically corey the winemaker maker at our place. They got a machine that takes alcohol out so we took our blunk deblanc and just took the alcohol out so it tastes good. It's it's not. It's a little bit sweeter because it changes changes a little bit but it's definitely more elegant than Martinelli than I thought you know. Grown up sophisticated sparkling apple juice. Yeah exactly exactly the I mean. The whole non alcoholic thing is big growing part of the industry. Because I think you've had all these people for a long time. Who maybe they weren't drinking by choice? You weren't drinking by necessity but there just weren't never a lot of great options the ones I remember tastes terrible sweet and the labels are really ugly so so I thought there's a yeah a need for that and Corey was saying that the lower alcohol alcohol drinks are becoming more and more popular. I'm always bummed when you go to a restaurant you don't necessarily really feel like drinking and you ask what the Non Alcoholic options are and it's basically water and soda. That's always a bummer for me. Yeah I know it should be more creative and and you've had kids so even when you're pregnant and you're out in a restaurant. Yeah yeah there's this great drink so we have this little tiny hotel in Italy from the town where or my dad's from called Palazzo Margherita Bernal deb. which is it's really beautiful? But they have a drink there they make in the summer at sparkling water with fresh rosemary and lemon and asked what the I have to get the whole great. Yeah and it's really nice in the summer when you want something that has flavor but it took a cocktail we need A. We need an updated cocktail recipe. Be From you. I think you're actually in the. Are you in the first issue. I feel like you're in the first issue talking about French. Seventy Five's Oh I think so. Yes yeah we were talking about the the bar the Ritz Hotel which was opened when we interviewed you and then closed for all the renovations and lower back. I haven't I haven't been back anyway. Yeah I call Alan the bartender there is he back. He's back. I'm pretty sure he's back because has always a cool guy. Yeah he's back and I love that he Went on hiatus but they made sure to have him and it was the tiniest bar for for such like legendary space when you would go see it and you're like Oh gosh. This is literally like the size of a shoebox yet so cozy now now. It's all kinds of Clinton cleaned up so it looks a little too perfect but it's it's so yeah and when I was living in Paris Duran tonight we will go there and he makes those beautiful cocktails with fresh flowers and but they're strong so you have to watch. I think I've had some of those but I still love a French. Seventy thirty five have you. Do you ever go. Oh Yeah I filmed beguile there. We spent a couple of months there and I love I love I love it there. Did you ever go to that. Little Bar called French seventy-five in Orleans I don't think so. s liver of a bar. No I have to go. Its so-called. Obviously everyone gets the French seventy eighty five and they have great bar snacks. It's like all Leopard and sort of like monkey land. Next time I go there. I'M GONNA go for sure you would love of it so people can also visit the the winery. Oh Yeah in Geyserville there's The one with our net coppola winery. which it's really nice and I love the restaurant there? It's called rustic.

Marc Jacobs is so An instagram my daughter lives in instagram. And I I know I'm still. Aw dragging behind trying my heels so that was my one for a into kind of playing with that and I wanted it to be reflective of you know my personality finality and what and spirit that definitely comes through every now and then there's like a new photo from you. Yeah Yeah I tried to send the stuff in here and there to to keep it connected. But they don't because I don't I don't look at all the time I kind of forget about that whole universe but I but I But it's fun to dip my toe in new spotlights cool movies you and I love your Muse. That's being too and I saw repel Veronica Webb on there. I love our Evanston years but it it was when I was sixteen I international and Paris as eighties and she was there as a model and she just made a big impression on me so she's so nice yeah. I haven't seen her a lot of time but it was actually very intense dinner for Jodi Kantor and Megan twohey who wrote she said. Oh you broke open the whole story and and she was there and we were able to catch up. Say Hi when you see her. I don't know if you've if you've read that book but then the night. Yeah I've read a bit and then it was getting kind of dark and I had to take a break. I mean for you for me. It's one thing reading it but I would imagine being in the movie world. It's a completely different. Yeah but I feel like it's it's Universal Farley true are. We're going to go back to movies. I wanted to wrap up on on cooking. So you mentioned that your recipe the girl. Yes you still stick to recipes. He I really need. I really need it spelled out. And Cindy Paulson is a family friend.

Aaahh!!! Classic Monsters
"We thought we would talk. Hello Classic movie monsters or I guess. A derivative thereof You know all the films like Frankenstein Dracula creature the Black Lagoon and salon boy. Oh boy so yeah so we are. Actually we each picked one classic creature. We're going to be sharing history in details about that creature in the story about the story about them so should we. Should we drinks. Yeah okay so I'm going to actually hand the mic over to Tracy and you because I she has forty drinks that she's going to be sure they're all so I'm focusing on vampires and at total wine there was actually quite a bit to choose from uh-huh depending on how elaborate you WanNa get with the topic. There was even like walking dead wine assume that seemed like sheeting. That seemed like that would be better for his. Obviously yeah it's because it's actually from the TV exactly. So I can't have rick on the cover and be thinking of Bram Stoker works for me with that said that I brought three drinks because being hungover and being two o'clock in me not having lunch it just seems weird like crack. Open a bottle of wine right now but I do have Francis Coppola diamond red plans talk a little bit about Coppola going on. Because you can't really talk about Dracula directly without talking about Coppola and then I also because I don't like I said if I'm going to open that I also brought four. They use my teeth to pull the bag out. I have a lovely temper neo. Oh I love to drag on. And we'll talk a little bit about what dragons dragons relates reverse dragged him the vampire at least in literature but like I said that's a bit heavy so honestly what I think I'm going to start with. Breath is a nice blood. Orange Margarita and S- To serve it in as they said I just live seven houses down I brought on my own Hamilton Sippy Cup when I say Hola pouring that that's awesome chewing that All amazing choices see. That doesn't take a random rationalization cody did you notice that mixture. You have doesn't actually have to kill it in it. Oh I I forgot I also brought my own patrol. Never leave home without it. So the monster I chose today is Where wolves so what? I'm drinking today. Is a Lithuanian heritage. Beer called where wolf it's literally called Werewolf and it has a quite a high alcohol content. So that's so funny because just right before for the show Tracy and I were talking about how we like picking drinks. That aren't just the name. They require narrative. Chris here's where we'll there's nothing with that sound so bitchy all right so Chris is still looking to see what kind of beer is is it. Strong connect have a taste. Today makes one of us. Oh that is delicious is really good. That's dangerous Oh my God. I'm just GonNa Covet this break a command. It's a Belgian dark El okay. I'M GONNA try that too. Yeah so for my drink. I'm actually Old England. I'm actually doing Frankenstein. And so and that was that was what I was GONNA do. I was I went into English. Oh I hear terrible and like you know what. I just can't drink this after my night. I'm going to get something good. Mary Shelley found something actually liked Mary. Shelley well well I whenever you look at all these old stories. I what I think of it is. They all kind of intertwined sometimes in ways and they're just kind of these wild crazy stories stories. So I've found a blackberry merlot called twisted Vine Ohio. Yeah good expected to get a couple. I rolls maybe like really all right so with that I will get into history I didn't want to do anything like Hollywood movie. Poor history because that would have been very long and excessive in instead I thought I would give a weird overview on the history of monsters the word monster itself derives from the Latin word monstrum meaning to demonstrate or monarch meaning to warn There's also the Latin word monstrum which Just means abnormal or supernatural but can also mean wonder or miracle generally speaking monsters are physical whether real or imagined representation of those things society as Dean leaned unknown or unnatural and most mostly those things that we fear and cannot explain physically. Speaking a monster may have some unusual characteristics. In fact one time things such as two-headed cavs or babies born with abnormalities were considered monsters so basically anything that was outside of what society claimed as quote. Normal aw was seen as monstrous of course as we know in addition to the physical characteristics. Munster's we'll do some terrible things or act out on the way beyond the standing of society being set that any one of us in this room could be considered a monster me with my blue hair and you both being super tall me with my gay so monsters there's all of you There are a ton of tons of monsters that go back in history. There were monsters that were found in cave paintings represented by animal human hybrids which unlikely cliches in real life hence monsters or at least at the conclusion that historians drew in Greek and Roman mythology monsters were perceived as a form of displeasure from the gods examples being cyclops Gorgon. Medusa Centaurs Sirens and so on. It seems that in religion like Judaism Christianity and Islam. They avoided talking about monsters aside from stories related to Satan and the power of evil in Hinduism monsters. A lot more prevalent. you see gods depicted with extra limbs or as an animal human hybrid and in native American culture. You have creatures such as the Wendy Go. Skin walkers and even sasquatch after the renaissance period with science becoming a new a fairly new thing. It really tried to attempt to explain what exactly monsters were to no avail in the gothic period we were graced. With two of the most infamous monsters Frankenstein and Dracula as well as some of the creepiest fairy tales by the brothers Grimm in psychology. Carl Jung tried to explain monsters as any central part of development might in that they were seen as the quote otherness within ourselves. I kind of discussed with this with you. Cody Day in that how I was talking how we need to balance the light with dark so I think that's the same thing it's arguing and our gang. We all have a fascination with monsters. This podcast is an example. Cody are armchair. Chair crypto zoologists. That even if these creatures don't exist it's that innate curiosity of the possibility of their existence as society changes the faces of monsters changing. We'll continue you to do so when before we used to be freed of things like trolls and elves. Today's where we fear things such as candyman or to say that once monsters collection of our society and then all the terrible things in it as well as an escape from those terrible things monsters are ever evolving and as long as we have fears and terrible things going on in our world they will. Oh not go away in my opinion. That's escapism at its best interest inc.. I have like a believer skeptic question but I guess I wanNA save it maybe. For debunk okay. But I'm afraid that I'm going to. I'm going to forget it. I'm going to ask now for both of Y'all are there any monsters or creatures that either of you actually believe in. Yes yes. That's probably what got me. Hooked on your podcast in the first place you were immediately talking about things that I have seen with my own eyes so I can only to Chris as a believer in many of the things. He's seen. Yeah I'm sitting there at work. Listen to going. Oh my God I saw that too says yes shadow people. I can't talk about that right now. Is Definitely I've had encounters encounters with shadow people. But as far as what we're talking about today. The closest is a boyfriend who thought he was a vampire. Oh Shit are you talking about that in your story. No I wasn't going to because it's complicated and messy advocates network. Deep Ball Game L.. Dated someone who thought he was a vampire sidelining. I think he was just really sexually confused. Needed to explore some things and that arena. He had seen the horror many

That's be bapu which scheduled a strike for early this week. announced on August twenty third that its pilots would be striking in September following a pay dispute with the airline which they claimed would not accept any of a number number of solutions that would have avoided this strike. What isn't gonNA average pilot makes who's flying across cross the Atlanta against completely guessing you think to fifty I that sounds somewhere? I don't know Yeah Bach Seventy Five. I was GONNA Guess West because I've heard I have a a friend not that level but like he he says the the the wages have come down salaries so I'll go less but hopefully we'll well the pilot's Union they represent over ten thousand UK pilots across more than twenty companies had accused the airline of profiting at the cost of pilots sacrifice edge sacrifices services that include pay cuts and reduced leave and closing the final salary pension scheme quote unquote meanwhile the cost of these cancelled services is about fifty million per day yeah. It's Kinda tough if you need pilots and they go on strike like you can if you work at tuna canning factory or something then you working out next man then but yet the seven seven seven that's seven eight seven hundred in fact there was a post that said if your flight is cancelled.

Is 5G safe? (The 3:59, Ep. 575)
"The. Welcome to the three fifty nine or about your chain actor, five Jeep promises to radically change your lives, giving us a lightning fast connection potentially powering everything around us. But there's always been a lingering concern about five and cellular signals general. It's really the concern about whether or not, this is actually dangerous after all uses higher frequency radio airwaves five particular will require a lot more cell towers around you that's making people really nervous. So we had our own Maggie ridden breakdown this issue. And well, it's complicated. Technically, all this radiation, really any heat that we give off considered radiation, but cell signals including five G don't fall into that spectrum of harmful radiation, that would actually breakdown, your yourself something like something you'd find with an x Ray or a nuclear power plant, so no studies found a direct link between cell phones and cancer or fertility or any other kind of health issues. But there's a big but is that the World Health Organization sort of left open the? Ability that are f- signals are causing genyk critics say that. They're just haven't been enough adequate studies to prove that science. You need a lot of studies, you need to have different variables taken out of the equation. You can't be like okay, all we're going to do you're going to be subject to five waves, as opposed to WI fi, microwaves or any of those other items or even other people who are radiating heat. So there's lots of different factors on this. So it's just flat out scientists take a lot of time to figure this out, but at times, figured out, sixty will be here. Right. I think that's the big problem. I think this is an issue had with cell cell phone service generals. We don't have five note tests on by the time we do have the network to get those adequate tests were already years into five G exposure, and everyone sort of moved on. Right. And so, yeah, there really isn't sorry, say there isn't a clear. Answer is whether or not it's dangerous. We get we only know that it might be. Yeah. Maybe not I'm leaning towards probably as dangerous as four G bribing, assuming four. Gee is dangerous. That's the thing right there. No say's have really conclusively linked four G to anything. And so the World Health Organization has left open calls it a potentially carcinogenic cereal. But they also say coffee and pickled vegetables and also heard burnt ends can cause. Yeah.

And they actually settled for a s- fine of five point seven million dollars, which at the time was the largest finally settled, if the FTC is looking into YouTube, and they have to figure out kind of some kind of settlement of Suming, this kind of violation of this law, this kind of settlement might be very, very, very, very large. Yes. If, if I boy, seven's a drop in the bucket for for you to take talks a small. Company, probably a bigger blow for them. But yeah, you can imagine this fine would be a lot more significant.

"coppola" Discussed on Movie Crush
"It's similar thing. We talked about in lost in translation where. The aesthetic style in forms so much of movie and Coppola isn't afraid to sort of take pleasure in luxury and nice things. For example. I want candy sequence. It shows why those things are so appealing. I mean who wouldn't want to have this shopping spree and be able to buy whatever they want an eat. All these delicious colorful pastries. I mean, you get why that's attractive. Yeah. I've never. I've never liked the criticism about a filmmaker that they. All right. I'm going to bring up Woody Allen. So just park everything else about him to the side. Sure. Can't we all do that for a second? But a lot of criticism. He used to get was like all he ever does is right movies about upper-crust in these upper east side people who you know, go to the Hamptons for the weekend. Do this do that. And I'm like, I was always like well. Yeah. That's like that's the world. He knows and understands and writes about Sofia Coppola group, very privileged and wealthy and the son of the rate famous person in like, this is the world she feels comfortable writing about expressing like she's not gonna make a movie about you know, some poor kid from a bad neighborhood. She probably shouldn't make that movie. Right. Yeah. She would. I mean. Yes, you'd probably feel dishonest to try to guess tell something true of a story like that. I know I never liked that kind of criticism about filmmakers, like there's nothing wrong with doing a film about what you know. Whether you're Wes Anderson or I'm not gonna say. The other guy's name again. But right, right or maybe back in the day with Stillman. I don't know if on penalties fan whit Stillman. Yeah. But everyone, you know would pile on or not everyone people loved him. But people pile on whit Stillman because of all these movies about the progress New Yorkers and the. And I was like, well, that's that's what he knows. I guess, and I think people get mad if if you make a movie like that that doesn't just visceral them, right? If you show the deal, if you show any sort of identification, or empathy totally it's like, they immediately attack you that's your right? And it really thought about that. That's the key. You can make a movie about that..
"coppola" Discussed on Movie Crush
"I feel like there are a lot of shots like that to that kind of show her from her point of view or just like where her face is the only thing the camera. Yeah. There's a great a great shot where are on the screen. Yeah. There's a great shot where it's when they haven't consummated their marriage, and you hear a letter from reinterprets mother on he's and she's against that wall against the wall paper this this wallpaper with flowers and tree branches and marie-antoinette's address is almost the exact same pattern to where she's blending in with the wallpaper. I mean or to shut gorgeous shot and then she'll solely push into her. And it ends almost on a close up and she actually like looks right into the camera. Yeah. And it's it's just great. There are a few shots like that to that one for sure noted but the shots where that really reminded me. A berry Lyndon were the ones that Kubrick hid ripped off from old paintings. And there are a few of these in here where she was clearly inspired by his inspiration. Where it would look like, you know, just a painting of the day where she's like thrown back on the Shays with someone doing her, you know, her dress or something, and it's just like composed like a beautiful painting. Yeah. Another shot that reminds me of his win Lewis crowned king when they're in sort of the chapel, and it's very almost why Tableau shot of him the crowns being placed on his head. And and the light streaming in at the perfect angle. It looks almost like the I think there is an actual painting. That's very similar to that. In that case. They almost just copied it. Uh-huh. Verbatim. You know, how why not why not? I mean, didn't you say the lost in translation, but shot was. Inspired by photographer. Yeah. Inspired by either. A patriot photographer. I forget, but. Yeah. So you know, it's all there. Well, I loved it. You know, she's not afraid to bring in her other experiences in clearly fashion is one of them. And again with just her static is just so so beautiful, and she brings all our inspirations and just with the music. It's like she loves that music. So she's going to use it, you know. Yeah. It's like get the string quartet outta here. And give me Robert Smith. Any day of the week. Yeah. On that note. I do think it's interesting to point out how this film probably more than I would argue maybe more than any of Coppola other films has certain element of autobiographical has a certain autobiographical quality to all right in the way, she sort of identifies with marie-antoinette as this young girl of privilege, who's kind of thrusts a little bit into the spotlight, and we criticize and criticised. Yeah. Just like Sofia Coppola, she had acted in godfather part three part was widely panned by everybody's got killed got killed, and then she kind of quietly develops her own artistic style, and temperament which you do see in this movie where marie-antoinette she plays the piano. She lives on her own play at I think, it's at her sort of little. Country get away, and they invite everybody and right? You might expect a scene like that to play out where she's terrible. And you know, everyone just kind of putting up with it because she's the Queen. But no, she's actually good singer and everyone especially her husband. Enjoy the performance. Yeah. Yeah. For sure speaking of performances the. The it looks like it max Fisher production, which I love that. I opera. Yeah. And it's easily the best slow clap in movie history. I think yeah. Because it's real it's not like slow claps are such a trope. And they're like, they're it's almost a trope on a trope to where they're ineffective in just dopey. But this was a like a slow clap that had real emotion to it. Because she she she loved the art that she was seeing and she was encouraging. Remember, she's like in her sweet little Kirsten Dunst voice. She's like come on clap clap. And then they started clapping started clapping. And then they're all I feel like the audience turned. And they got it. You know, it was like it was a real slow club..

"Also, notice the here we are talking about another beautiful shot of a woman's backside two movies in a row. Now, they have that great shot when she's being stripped of all her Austrian things very beginning that beautifully framed almost in silhouette the way the shadows are playing when they take your clothes off and stuff. But again, it's like, man. So he just doesn't other like beautiful, but shut the way to say this one. She's totally naked. Yeah. But yeah, I noticed that shot to it's so Avakian of of what's happening to her. She literally and figuratively being stripped of everything she is and be being given this new life yen for a while there. It kind of turns into a comedy. Yeah. Like or the very least heavy heavy satire by there's a series of the the waking up, you know, being attended to while the women when she standing there naked. And, you know, each time a new higher ranking member of the court would come in and they would have to dress her. And that's that's true. Oh, I'm sure real that happened. Yeah. That and then the the scene with them in the in the dining room, it was basically like three or four or five scenes in a row that I was just like this is kind of a straight up comedy in some ways. But not you know, slapsticky, it's a it's it's very dry comedy comedy of manners. Reminded me a some of the funnier bits of Barry Lyndon. Which I think is actually kind of hilarious movie in the summer. It's sort of. It's a send up of sort of the. The rituals in the formal requirements right court life where Marie Antoinette is just like why do I have to maintain all these rituals? Why do I have to wait for this person to come in to address me all these things? Yeah. I couldn't decide if. Sofia Coppola is sort of taking the piss out of period piece films or the requirements of court life or kind of both. I think both I think mainly the requirements of court life. Yeah. But also in terms of period piece films, just overall the way, she injects color and life into the movie. You know, what I love about this is they shot inverse. I they had total access to to recite. That's what happens when you make lost in translation and kit deal. Like, how did they get that access? Do you know anything about that? I don't know much on just like hand that out. I would imagine some of it has to do with Coppola having experiences like a fashion designer with right? French designers got helped get her access and also she's probably popular in France. And I'm not gonna lie. Probably does help. When your dad is Francis. Ford Coppola the name Coppola opened some doors against the doors of verse. Cy included. But she. Is she also had made lost in translation, right, which was a hit Oscar-nominated wealth the box office. So she was kind of in that stage where she had a hit film, and kind of do whatever she wanted to extent. And so what I was going to say about her size. I love how she adds so much life to reside mostly with the color where this feels like a place that's alive. And we're we're people actually lived a love the color palette in this movie. It's that. It's colorful, but it's not these bright colors that you have nowadays. It kind of reminded me of when have you ever been to what was towards Washington's house? She starts thin. No nut Monticello Jefferson. Jefferson. Mount Vernon mount Vernon have you ever been there? I have not. So the the old colonial colors when you walk through the house. You're like did they really paint their walls like this color, blue and this color green? Like, you think of that time period is just being like beige or white and every single wall color in mount Vernon is like a different color like from the ROY g biv spectrum. But they're a little more muted..
What are conservatives saying about Joe Biden's new video?
"So I looked at what Ed Morrissey had written about Russia. Hangover muller. Hangover said, hey, let's talk about that. But now knowing Ed knowing hot air knowing what he's doing. I just offer the curve ball of front and safe. Hi, welcome. It first of all have you caught the Joe Biden video this morning. I've got some of it. I just I I was kind of ripping through it right before I came on the air with we would probably come out interesting. Probably one of the more effective campaign videos that I've seen so far the ones that I've seen from other democratic candidates were sort of all over the place. At least one thing Trump. I, you know, and I'm just so disappointed, and I'm probably naive to be. I mean, I've I've tried to be a head of the curve on a lot of things and not be surprised by so many things. But I thought we would see Joe come in at his likable best with with some things to say about Trump, and we need to sort of point things in a different direction. And I've got a different view of immigration and a different view in the environment. And I just welcomed the opportunity to become your nominee, blah, blah, blah. I did not expect Trump is Hitler America is Germany in the nineteen thirties under him and only I can save you. And my shallow analysis is to be disappointed. I hate this. I wanted better. But I think you might be honest you called effective. And it probably is for exactly the audience that he's pitching to today's democrat party. Remember what he's probably got the centrist ready enhanced. Right. That's the analysis. That's what he's got to be looking at is that there isn't a lot of competition for the traditional Joe Biden democratic voters there. Everybody's pushing to the progressive so biting I think thinking I got those people just by jumping into the race. What I've got to do is be able to compete for the progressive activists against Kemba Harris, you know? Elizabeth Warren along with a lot of other zero percenters in yield. And so so that's tailoring. The message to to hit those progressive activists to to to take those voters away from that into claims sort of a consensus among all the sides of the Democratic Party. So I see the strategy there. I'm with you on that. I kind of thought that he'd be killer uncle Joe coming out of the gate to. But it doesn't surprise me that that he's seeing as the has the activist blood of the party at the moment. And that's what he's going for. Because the the danger is that by being the likable of jeweler guy that he gets tagged as being weak gets tagged as being unfit for the fight. And he's gotta show that he's willing to throw the sharp elbows. I don't know if it so much that or if it's just the fact that he's got to overcome the fact that. He's an old white guy. I think that's really the big issue. Right now is politics Democratic Party. And he's got to find a way to cut through that. And the one way to do that is to go after Trump. Listen, heavy mentioned identity politics on wanna get to your wonderful piece at the week dot com called the Muller war rages on I've got you and the gift of a little bit of time since identity politics does want so much of the democrat party a lot. A lot of women are having a lot of impact Coppola Harris has the the the double dip of women of color, which is such a shameful thing. Because she is is a smart and talented Makamba person. And yet in today's Democratic Party. It's all about the kind of of identity stuff that you mentioned. But here sitting here in Texas. I'm watching beta meltdown, but the more at least as interesting story is how unaccomplished Hispanic man like on Castro has crickets and tumbleweeds. Have you noticed? He is he conspicuous by his absence in any kind of discussion of. Early buzz. I actually a little surprised about that too. Because this is a name that's been popping up for quite a while. I mean, the Castro both Castro brothers have been talked about for at least three or four years maybe longer than that about being the the the index comers in the Democratic Party. And I'm wondering if. I'm wondering if it's just an issue of. Platform. I mean camera Harris comes from California, California's very blue state. It's very large state very important state in in the democratic primaries now because it comes early in the primaries it didn't use to come early in the primaries. I'm wondering if that if it is media situation when you're in the Senate, it's easier to get media attention to when you're in the house, or when you're mayor of a city in Texas. So the Castro brothers haven't really been. Media dominant, right? See them around the media. Has something to do with it. And then again, you get Kirstin Jill, right? Who also comes from it, very important democratic state, very blue state, highly popular state and she's zero percent to. So it's see I think that's the very good analysis. Right. Let's go to what I actually wanted you on the show for but in today's fast moving world. Let's not part company before we talked about your piece, headlined, the Muller war rages on what is your basic feces there on how Democrats are living in post Muller, America. I think that they can't let it go. And I think that they're going to find the more that they can't let go the more. They're gonna disconnect from voters on this. But clearly what they wanna do is they want to reconstitute the mullahs report under their own steam. And and so they're going to try to do what you especially when it comes to obstruction of Justice. I think that they've given up on the Russia collusion thing. Adam Schiff aside? I think that kind of given up on the Russia collusion. Hardly anything about that really since bars report. But certainly since the mullahs report came out, and so I think it's going to focus on instruction as an impeachable offense. And what they wanna do is. They wanna drag all the different witnesses that Muller talked to during the investigation and Adam testify before congress, so they can try their own conclusions rather than Muller's conclusions are William bars conclusions. I I don't think the administration's gonna sit for that second work. And Secondly, I don't think people really care as much as Democrats things they do about. This is something that I think most people felt the Miller report settled and without the without an underlying crime of Russian collusion that really concerned about whether or not Donald Trump head temper tantrums over this looks something else and how it will play than the next chapter of President Trump's combativeness well seem to be to resist every subpoena that comes his way in order to pile on impost Muller, America. Everybody knows my dog knows that these are punitive subpoenas because they can't let it goes you've described. But there's something about resisting subpoenas that have. It's it's it's dicey. It's risky has that gonna play. You're right about this. And in fact, I think is Jonathan swan Mike Allen, it actually has a pretty decent piece about this today is that you can the White House can simply stall this thing forever by refusing cooperate with subpoenas and congress can issue citations all day. But the Justice department isn't going to force that, and if you wanna get example of just look at Eric Holder with fast and furious. They stonewalled it over executive privilege. The Obama technically wasn't even involved in this discussions, and they didn't settle it until Donald Trump came into office where they Eric Holder. Finally turned over some of the documents that they've been looking for so, yeah, you can still this thing forever. And the question of whether does your political damage, it it certainly didn't with Obama Obama got reelected, even though Eric Holder was found in contempt over operation fast and furious, and he was very popular throughout his presidency. Even though he was stolen that investigation. And in this case. Factor for both sides is that they waived executive privilege for more. So Muller is interviewing all these people. Executive privilege now Democrats are arguing look that the precedent. That means that you that. It's it's waved forever. And that's a legal question. It's certainly going to be. Have to be nailed down. However, the Trump administration can turn around and say, look, we cooperated with the independent counsel cooperated with the guy that we didn't like, and we all these people already talked to investigators, and they have a report a full report that tells them exactly what they found reductions part of the report, and I think that's Trump administration. Can't successfully argue that they cooperated so much during the special counsel investigation that it is illegitimate attempt at congress to try to reconstitute that into a kangaroo court, and they're simply not going to cooperate with necessarily gonna hurt

"But at the same time and you know think about something like marieantoinette where the the french revolution is offscreen us yeah that there's something unfortunate about that but at the same time this narrow lens that she creates with her films gets me in the moment in a sensual instant in a way that few filmmakers do and it's because she has she's not worried about anything else going on she's worried about the temperature in the air he's worried about the taste of the food that they're a tank share texture of the clothes that they're wearing the music maybe they're listening to or is plain in their heads and that requires a distinct narrow focus to make us feel like were there as well and so it's a given take i think it's you know may be a difficulty of her personal style but at the same time if you took that away and asked her to make a more expansive vision of this era we would get something a little more generic and we wouldn't get something as a as particular and as of the moment as the beguiled was at least for me extreme as a film experience i i want to make two or three other points wine yes i don't think coppola with cognizant of the fact that she tripped into a very interesting critique of white womanhood by not having slave characters and having it'd be so in solar and myopic which i don't mean that as an insult either that's okay right it okay if a movie becomes its own thing and reveals things that maybe the filmmakers didn't time it that's the case here i think pia and i think that's why we need to be careful with his obsession with using our tour theory as a lens for criticism so consistently and taking what directors say because if i did that i would never watched classic film because.
