Fresh update on "john malkovich" discussed on The Next Picture Show
"So to see the movie abandoned her the end was kind of disappointing and why am attempting to ignore the most popular theory about what it all means if the movie was about a woman who realized that she's a fictional creation I'd be on board instead it becomes about the man who created her, which is far less interesting when he's cut from the same Kaufman Cloth Kaufman cloth. Often. I would respond to this in two ways in terms of I think that the points that are made here are all. Well. Taken incorrect in this certainly plenty of connections perhaps more that you could draw between soon executing York and I'm thinking things than being John Malkovich and I'm thinking you're many things but I think are Not, to speak for everyone but I, I would say one. This is our shot at Charlie Kaufman. So like one that we think we had an instinct to really kind of go back. To where things started with with him and I think that being John Malkovich. Really. Starts Your defines sensibility that has been seen through. You know so many movies sense then. So yeah, and then related to that is that it's actually New York is pretty recent for us to Quebec to afford it classic status. I mean. We've made some exceptions in the past, but at least a being John Malkovich is in a different century. So I think those would be two reasons why would have chosen that over What what do you think? Am I right on this gang also just it's beloved film it's a fun film. It's a film that we thought people might want to revisit. You know that kind of older listeners, which is to say listeners the age of many of us. Have had probably seen in a while back and not in a while whereas snack Nikki is more recent and just like more recent in the memory essentially. I agree with Scott that. Comes down to it's a little early to afford the newer film classic status but I also think that the fact that those two films feel so similar thematically in an execution maybe makes it less interesting to talk about them to talk about the Kaufman dining and range what interests me in a way about the connections between the new one and being John Malkovich is there kind of fundamentally from the same creator in the same mindset but they showcase like a different array of? Talents a different array of on and Foci in a way that Selecta cheat dat can't say it. I, I have a brain black. That's it. I think this is a a really interesting letter in terms of a lot of other things including Ya Jesse clements does feel so much like a Philip Seymour Hoffman's stand in I. Think if often was still alive today, he wouldn't be too old to play the janitor. He would be too old to to play the character that plummets plays. And I can't help. But wonder if Kaufman would wanNA cast him anyway because it's clear that he just had such a connection with them and it it really seems like that's the Hoffman feeling was leads exactly what he was going for with a character. I wasn't on an episode, but but having just watched at should and I'm thinking of things back back I think you're absolutely right about the similarities between snacky and I think he would need things but I think one of the things is interesting about coffin is how the peters was always area. The humor is always the balance has shifted so remarkably over the course of his career. A really. It'd be pretty indigestible double feature I think..
Ava Movie Review : Jessica Chastain powers this moderately thrilling assassin saga
"I'm Madeleine brand. I am ready to review some films of two of my favorite favorite critics and two of my favorite humans all time alongside early and Dave White film critics for the rap and host of the podcast, Linoleum knife. How you guys Hello. All right. Let's talk first about Eva. Jessica Chastain stars as international assassin, but a job goes wrong. Here is some of the trailer. I know you like Eva. She's a liability. No, she's best to breathe. I recruited her trainers talking She's always been jukes favor, but she's a loose cannon and dangerous of the organization. Alonzo. What did you think so? Yeah, this is, you know, typical international assassin and runs afoul of the corporation. And of course, she must be closed. Um, why is it that only the female international assassins also have family issues, whereas the male international assassins were always completely cut off from their own feelings and from their own families of their own pasts and all that stuff. Really The most interesting stuff about Eva is that a bow, played by Jessica Chastain comes home to Boston, where she has to confront her fractured relationships with her sister, played by just Wexler and her mother, played by Gina Davis. On Of course, Gina Davis was an international female assassin in the long kiss. Good night, so that's a nice little Bow on this, and the scenes between Gina Davis and Jessica Chastain are so crackling in a Confrontational, dysfunctional family cannot away that you kind of wish this had been a confrontational, dysfunctional family movie and not international Super Assasin movie. But I mean, it's a lot of that movie is has been made. It's called What ever happened to Baby Jane? Good points, But I mean, you know the The pieces in this are not bad, like the actual international Super assassin scenes are pretty well done. There's some pretty good action sequences. Maybe Not in like an atomic blonde kind of way. But still like when. When Jessica Chastain gets into a scrap with Colin Farrell or, you know, I mean, John Malkovich even gets into some violence in this movie. Those scenes are kind of fun, but then you gotta shift gears into Ava and her addictions and her family stuff, and it's like The movie is in all the lanes and it doesn't really ever quite nail any of them. So I maybe wish they had. They had taken off one piece of jewelry before leaving the house, you know, either lose one of reds here, Dave. Moments of cool, stabbing and kicking. Alleviating boredom. Unfortunately, they missed this golden opportunity to allow Gina Davis To be revealed. To still be her long kiss Goodnight character, passing the mantle of super assassin. Down to her daughter that they did They do this. They did not do this. Unfortunately, if you're going to make a movie with a plot, as wrote, and by the numbers as this You got to juice it up somehow, You know, it's not. It's not enough that the Jessica Chastain isn't a long red gown. You know, stabbing and kicking and shooting. Okay,

Dancing to the Cup
"A trainer partying like it's nineteen ninety one eight bolt she's got a two and a half lake lead dawn the destroyer next toward the inside what over with Mark Holiday from blue devils been a client of mine for years and we just try to make a game plan where we figured we'd cut it back and trying to make her a champion in the sprint division just seemed like chasing midnight these you might be a tough ordeal for her we had always Kinda were skeptical about how far she wanted to go even though she had won the Royal Delta ongoing amount sixteenth earl the year before last when she was second in the gopher one going mile just seemed like a good plan to just regroup she got a little light after the midnight race to wait for the Ballerina and try to win that game one which turned out great and then it's actually not ten weeks I was wrestling with that but I decided to go ahead and run the gallant bloom on September twenty second I got the I put she also won so now I got the two races back since the Phipps and I'm sitting ready to go five and a half weeks into the British top actually speaking of midnight zoo you know we mentioned in our open that your family has a history of running a really good horse against a potential legend for speaking about your grandfather Pancho Martin who had oh really good three year old named Sham back nineteen seventy-three but that was not the right year to have a really good three-year-old how much did that enter your mind when you decided to shorten up come down instead of knocking heads with midnight bees again I never really think about things in the past I mean I know my grandfather was a great trainer and that was a great horse and he ran against probably one of the greatest sources that ever lived but I just kind of try to do my own thing just worry about my horse and we're just trying to make the best game plan to give her a chance of success and to win a grade one and we just thought that Mitt I tease you and a late and some of the older fillies like a really strong division not that the sprint division having to run against co Pepsi the test and some other great vilis it's not it's not going to be easy but we just all got together and we just talked about cutting her back you know she had been brilliant in the distaff going seventy eight just started give us a chance to make regret one winter which has been always the goal 'cause we always believed in our hearts that she had that kind of brilliant ability in that kind of talent and they just that's just the way just turned out for us the time you know we were we were always debating you know what her best distances and this race was great and up to a mile it seemed like up to a one turn would be her game really oh by the way your grandfather portrayed as something of a foolish villain in the movie secretariat with Diane Lane and John Malkovich I know 'cause I was there for some of the filming of the scenes it didn't mention in the movie that he led the trainer standings in New York for ten straight years and entered the hall of fame in Nineteen eighty-one what did you think of his portrayal by Nestor Serrano I thought it was an interesting movie to say the least I brought him to see it and obviously he wasn't too pleased wasn't an accurate portrayal anybody that knows my grandfather knows that he was a gentleman and a lot of those things never happened with him screaming anybody I think he said he met Mrs Tweedy used to call her by her maiden name the day of the Derby she said hi Mr Martin can I say hi to sham and wish you luck inch and he took her over to t- his horse and exchange pleasantries and they wished each other luck and that was about the extent of his interaction with petty Chinnery so he thought it was quite amusing but like I explained to him it's Disney and somebody has to be the villain and they chose you and he said to me you know he was about eighty six years old and he said is there anything I can do I said well if you still have about twenty unless you could sue Disney but other than that just sit back and enjoy the movie so I don't think he really enjoyed the movie too much but it is what it is he had a great horse and if it wasn't for secretary how people theorize you know he broke the record in defeat and the Derby and preakness and maybe could be the triple crown winner he got hurt chasing him in the Belmont and then he still was syndicated for two and a half million in dollars which wasn't too shabby back in nineteen seventy three was a great horse in a great story and you know it's like having you know going up against Michael Jordan and a championship game and scoring eighty and Jordan's going one hundred and just coming up a little short trainer Carlos Martin joining us here on in the gate will send out come dancing in the Breeders Cup Filly Mayor Sprint you obviously come from a family of six zestful trainers including your Dad Jose who trained groovy I mean this is a business built on pedigrees so because of that I would think clients would have come flocking so you what made it takes so long for you to get back to this top level of competition I'm not sure I think we had a little rough patch with Mr Laser was my main client and backwards my dad got sick in two thousand six I had the the cancer Starting two thousand and two and then I unfortunately lost him in two thousand six we always had a close working relationship with Mr Lewis on and I kinda got comfortable in the state of being kind of a private trainer for him until he passed away about eight years ago and you know people sometimes they see you with one outfit and you know there was a lot if I think maybe just thought that was just him and me I was beholden to him and a lot of ways you know he was like a mentor to me with my father my grandfather of course and I think that kind of turns people off you know I had kind of a private job with him until he passed in two thousand eleven pretty much you know so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it I know when when he passed away it was quite an awakening to be a public trainer again and start almost from scratch about seven years ago and I'm so grateful that Mark Blue Devil and a couple of other clients like Matt Scherer on Mr and Mrs Collins a really good team now some really great people that have passion for the sport and really take the Horse I they're kind of the owners I have now say a little bit of a throwback because they really art patient with me as far as they want the best for the horse and I know there's a lot of pressure to do things right now especially when you spend a lot of money for but I'm very fortunate and blessed able to get back on our feet we went down from forty horses when Mr Lizard passed away in two thousand eleven to probably about five horses so we've called our way back and you know about the opportunity to win it Breeders Cup would be really really sensational way to finish the year and oblique grew almost to two million earnings for this year with a relatively small stable of twenty five sources I think he's a good accomplishment so I'm happy where I'm

"Kind of satisfaction so you think about craig in lahti both the people we meet the beginning of the film. They're both kind of powerless. They're both unsatisfied in their lives. You could say the unsatisfied creatively both of them because i'm stretching the term creatively here a little bit but think about craig not being able to be the puppeteer genius. The world won't let him be that puppeteer genius that he clearly feels he is he has that line. I feel i suffer. All i ask in. Return is the opportunity to do my work and they won't allow it.

He's pulling the strings on the puppets. He's bending them to his will and then we see him. Actually pulling malkovich's strings and maxine of course is pulling both craig strings again it gets back to that scene where she's stuck in the the middle and she is just living off of the feeling that vibe both of them are giving off to her her great line the comes later after craig has started to be able able to actually manipulate malkovich and the horror of malkovich losing complete control <hes> disruptions of the movie that your mind kind of breaks a second honiara whoa we're not only in here but now we're able to control tried also completely forgotten about remember her line where she so gidley says. Let's have sex on this table. Let's have sex on his table and make them eat. An omelette off of it and malkovich says no the real malkovich. Lets out this big yelp of no. I don't i think in that moment we're supposed to believe she's all sexually excited because she loves having sex with physically john malkovich nor emotionally psychologically gigli craig inside of malkovich's body..
Planned Parenthood sues to prevent last Missouri abortion clinic from losing license
"The only abortion clinic, and Missouri may be forced to stop performing them. Friday, Planned Parenthood says the state will likely not renew. It's license banning abortion, is not going to stop abortion, but it will stop safe legal abortion. It would Mark the first time since the nineteen Seventy-three Roe versus Wade decision that a state would be without an abortion clinic. Jennifer bucks used a clinic to terminate a previous pregnancy due to a genetic anomaly, if something's wrong, I won't be able to do anything in the state we live in. And that feels awful away.

"Filmmaker. I think the last thing is. What is it? The article experience is what is the definition of it? Now is it five hundred people in the theater is it a hundred is it fifty is a two people on a Friday night in front of a flat screen to me. It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it. Then if you're listening, it was a really well spent two years, it's an incredible piece Patricia and Paul and Benito these performances are one of the writing was great to six six or seven parts on the did you see it? I did on the fifth or sixth episode when that thing happens, and you all my God, this was because it structurally, so brilliant to put that they're not in the front where it would have so differently affect. The peace, and I would have been so proud to do that piece. I thought it was remarkable. That's a great answer. I had so much fun watching Belva bus ident-. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate. Thanks so much, Dan Gilroy. And thank you to you. For listening to this week's episode of the big picture, please tune in next week when we will have a brand new Oscar show that we've dubbed the wife of palooza, Amanda Dobbins, and I finally saw the wife, and we are ready to talk about it. And we have so much to say what we'll see you next Tuesday.

"Yes, it's that kind of inbetween place where I don't think they went far enough. So in a way that's also detrimental because it's sort of just a trance joke at that. I wish honestly would have been a much stronger thing if she was trans. Am I using words film transsexual and this? What's not like this is open up. The question question is no. Other than that, but it was very like, yes, I'm transsexual. Now I'm going to get sick. Assignment. Aw, I figured Dimity to in fifteen minute. Yeah, you know, like again, luggage team for journey avenue like, oh, okay, there assigns there throughout like we have faded mortgage.

So that said it's it's great area giving five. Like not the worst thing in the world. There's by the way you'd be confident friend of the show saying, AJ looking. Thank you. Thank you. So let's go to the other question. Did you find it enjoyable? I did. I. Iger weird. It has on. I love me like colts kind of like hoping movies on, and this is I don't feel like it's become a cult classic, but I definitely feel like it has a colty feel on. I kind of love that neither. I enjoy that. I don't know if the writers wanted to talk about symbolism or they just didn't actually have any symbolism on icon along. 'cause like other in definitely the most Olea that's a choice. A mistake. I think I would watch it again and I would. For. This is and because I have, I am DV fingertips. It was written by Charlie. That is the right of these Rimma budgets. We know. Funny story also really pick before I answer that question one of the producers on this is Michael site already. Various, you're saying. RAM score like no. To the best of my knowledge REM didn't use it. Produce a movie. I'd be like all my music like now, here's the money. My leg. Let's. So as far as whether I enjoyed it, I love this movie with the obvious caveat that you kind of have to look past a lot of consensus shoes, which is art of online, which is it is it is a movie, John Malkovich. They're seeing through his eyes at times if he doesn't have control over and he knowledge is what pops out. The other end of his fifteen minutes in there. He's like. This is kind of found in this is my head. Yeah. Which I wish I feel like I would love to. I would be okay unlike what you wanna see what I see come on my baby wanted at that. Fifteen minutes. Migraines, which of game when it's just you chip. This is crazy. So. Awesome. Is there anything you wanna plug? Is there a way that you walk? You'll find you on the internet? S- I always put on the shell because it's so relevant to your show my words, the foam of works documentary. It is on Amazon, and you could find that at words film on all social media. And we are currently setting screening excreting remind next short film called neon believe. So if you love very handsome, youngest was new, are himself out? It is a view. It's really quite entertaining. Would. Queers in it, you know, filmed by clear with clears in it, you know, actually all asking for some. Game by game here. So that'll be will be talking about that research. So keep an eye out. Me on beyond boys in China. It's about a dancer who was in jail who drew goes dancing, figure out, find a man that he told the love with figures out that he's guy, and it deals with a whole bunch of emotional issues and suicidal issues and the prison system being screwed up. It's unmeasurable, twenty four minute piece that finished last night, very, very profit. So should you. All right. For me, you can find me on the internet. You can find she is transported podcast on the internet.

"Oh, my goodness. Yeah. I think we really wanna see that shot. I, I never met the refunded like this with with that ending would come as not hump headline duck. It would not. I've got best birth seems honestly. But like recently, John q. side is attached is because he told his agent, I want the weirdest most absurd. You can find me to Sydney the strangest thing ever and they ended up in this and Kiambu resigned on this is. Yeah. No, this is an, I actually like thinking that reading that out loud. I wonder if that's where they were going with the whole, like Emily Dickenson others in the beginning because they're showing this guy, the giant up at all these students. Gimmick thing is it's like. I see how that would have tied to this. Remember that in a in some of the into roadbed that the secular van, many nine. Goodness. While I wonder if that's also I wondered. 'cause you know there was that moment where malkovich's trolling aid that late up in it's clearly a dude in the past pasture. Yeah. I wonder if that's what they made the puppet for that because he loves vaguely nightmarish. Yeah, I wonder if they made the puppet for this again, I'm speculating, but a lot of these pieces are they were crappy already made the public Dustin of John malkovich's by he's doing away with a up and you can literally feel that like like into different room, like clear in Aqaba. If I were like nowadays, ballet should going into a Greek name studio goes on swings in front of him. So, yeah, Jerry, I. And be the congress was the the doctor character yet he he didn't like you've done. So the soccer character plays while the dermatologist or something. And he essentially when lobby is like I wanna go into to Dr so and so and allergists only go, twelve statehood might stay at lines in the movie. Oh, my favorite ports of the movie is the scene where she's like, I'm going to talk to the doctor about getting sexual reassignment. I need like even allergists. You can't even like something like if you're gonna do it, do it correctly. I feel like it has nothing to do with the rest of the movie as John Cusack and then a fight with his wife that he had the night before just like figure it out. I actually I didn't hate that for for reasons that exchange, like I did kind of because it was still sullied by a lot of the other. But like the whole, I'm gonna talk to Dr. His name and it's just like he's an allergist. Gonna go to a doctor for this. It's like I value his opinion. You know what? Okay. Okay. So you're what I'm out few high motive on queens, like in big on a leave, the money on the doctor because you like them like I could just key lime what like I was like, you gotta go to an allergist. Like I just have that little bit of the glass, half empty cleans attitude like I'm like, grow, go to doc. Go to Callum law. Not an allergist. So I think we're, I think we're at the point where weekend start wrapping up. Do you? So I'm gonna ask you the questions I asked at the end of every is it. First off, let's start with is a translucent. You knew scale one to ten, you could just say like a new gig, big invoice. I wish I didn't find it again. I thought Michelle before always take the time movie was made in relation. And I, I don't feel for mentioned on transphobic I would have. I would have seen it as some sort of inflation. My senior high school, I probably would have a kind of upset. I didn't know this will be like, I knew it existed by new idea. There. Didn't advertise it like tr- like any of translates pretty Sherman ninety. My wife agree, LGBT movie that was a level of and I'm like, how that went. I feel like it would be would have been helpful. Not hurtful. I wonder, I wonder if it would have been considered a spoiler if they made it a your movie. Yeah, all of those words had scare poets around the..

"I don't think you really have an arc and he just printed Gresley bows Eljay. We argue he just have under the. All downhill. So our time a little bit about how John Malkovich reacted to this. He actually thought that the the writer of the script, he was just like when he received it, he said. You something to wrong this writer or. Especially when you see like, oh, hey, you let guy that actor ago John John Malkovich John Malkovich. I liked you in that jewel thief movie. I love they come out of it and like it's been much calendar. You know his character before he's taken over, realize that everyone knows his face, but no one actually knows what he's actually been in. And I know that after it came out in about five years of became out on YouTube, finally like blew off in two thousand four with women. He did this thing where he went around, he acts people would you know me from and everyone said. It gets me my will. Everyone said being John out rich, like besides that in the men would like. Innovate, like he knows like he's just much like the main hacker who you told me the name twenty minutes ago. Unlike I'm looking to remember that for like it's like, oh, that girl. Everybody, everybody when they first out the script wanted someone other than John Malkovich John out the like, I will happily, I believe me. I had to produce this, but it could be. Should it be someone else? And I don't need much. Yeah, better director said no new line cinema, watching Tom Cruise on John Malkovich was actually be high during the Tom Cruise. It was just like, no, it's gotta be John Malkovich, and part of it is because it's fun to say Malkovich alia leave. Like how often like when he's in his own subconscious, seeing everybody with his head just saying the word Malkovich that was trippy as hell. But that was so like, yeah, and earth Roussin toppers. I mean, yeah, that's kind of funny, but stop and shop. Oh, that's comedy gold. That's an honorable that's created of it. That's really good in the initial script incentive, Charlie Sheen. Lucy Kevin bacon. But John Malkovich said, you know, actually what I could probably all Charlie, she you'd be like, so like nice little nuggets with Annette land evenly. Was probably you'll footage of light the Oscars when John Locke there. So the random actor tool or like probably aren't actually in the movie like Mike fitness residents like Mandalay one day, how much was found footage from leg do the woods shows like we've been those are in the movie. So I wanted to say about the original ending. Yeah. So the ending we talked about yet and it's fairly, it's actually fairly simple in like there are surprising amount would be people characters more so than in the ending of the initial rule, or I'm going to read this. I got this awesome about mental floss. Got this off the commentary. Instead of making Malkovich famous puppeteer originals script, Craig announced the world that he is the master puppeteer and let Malkovich is it is a one man show in Las Vegas. Mr. plumber of Merton floor is actually the devil and tries to convince threat to get out of malkovich's mind so that he and his group can take over the world when Craig in the great MARTINI the world's greatest up a tear challenge.

"Religious is kind of a kind of saw trench song makes sense in a way because for part of the Maxine, pseudo redemption ark is her being very upset that she still with. In John Malkovich and her wanting to escape that in kind of taking those seven years to realize she's actually not necessarily in love with. She's in love with lucky, but he has a purse and yes, because John Malkovich was a semantic but had a a listening woman in. Yeah, put a vagina net as not not as. I'm on quoted from the movie, but essentially taken from one of the quotes movie. Yeah, because of that, she was able to kind of experience that in process. The fact that like, oh, I was. Okay. Okay. And move past it. And I'm not necessarily saying that that is a good thing, but it's an interesting and it is something that I think there are a lot. I think that there is a real life for relation to some people who make a bad decision or a decision based on their own experience to say, I can't take trans. I don't know. I can't take this this even like even a sys homosexual couple of being alone. I don't know if I can. And then finally one day realizing, oh, k. Nope. This is feel like you really on the issue like the Levy Maxine is so different than the than I have heard, like unlike which is evil eye knowledge of anybody. I don't like to me like even the fact that she she has excellent Laudi in John body on n. hubba weeks a couple of days or whatever has done that with. While the puppeteers in the body and couldn't tell the different year. And I was like, oh, you, you're in love with yourself, and you just want to see a reflection. You know your your reflections influence is essentially, you know, her character in offices inside a bunch of our herself. And for me, I was like, I don't think she Lowe's lobby. I think she's more tolerable Ali. She's left creepy than the puppeteer as much better life to be with someone that we've been creeps out, especially the way they aging these people typically and there's no. Many way on good, but I feel that. I feel that I don't necessarily. Belinda whole business unbelieva is Lottie baby. But if that necessarily made a difference was like, I don't wanna be with this dude, but at least like this one flesh and they love me and one that would someone, let's me. I kind of felt like maybe that's, you know, less about being gay, lesbian, bisexual, whatever less about being mad more about getting so frigging bachelor shelves. So you took seven years of the like third going? I was like he was used some of the more. Unlikely better. I mean, I'm buying of bad relationships. So I mean, you know, but I feel like that have a woman. Would it necessarily fall that much? I think she would disavow of in a way to make it easier on her shelves, you know, kind of, you know? No, I see that. And I think again, like I don't think there's necessarily one true. Yes, particularly for nice think is Maxine as a very complicated character. And I think that's what I enjoy about her as much as fuck Maxine yet. Like, fuck all these are really like a little bit more like, okay, like they're still, there's still. Would go the way I will say this is that you could write a book about how terrible consented is in this meeting. Because it's so much the levels of Homerun wellness. coming your way. Oh, raping movie, just yeah, for for lack of better term, it's it is something that you may have an issue with. If you had issue, you may want to trigger warning if you have issues with stories deal the lack of consent, particularly for body control. Yeah. So, but it is it. Yeah, it's it's so with that in mind, it's Jerry hard to like any of these Karen is unable, but it's fascinating yet like they do a very good job making them will rapidly fall at all. And the only one I really liked. I didn't John Cusack. The minimum loose. Unredeemable character. Yeah, don't you like he eventually gets worse? It really, no..

"And it was established that you'll be stuck in the consciousness of the vessel. The next festival a few jumping while they're baby. They don't know how to process it, and so you'll be stuck there forever and just what looking through their eyes. And it was like a very. So they show that that's what happens in the, he's stuck in child of essentially Maxine in. Yeah. And so I mean, that's horrifying in the -verting remained as definitely like about ending but jumps very quickly from. I'm going to go back to the door to use the ending was seven years ago that eleven of the makeup of the seven years later, nothing who win, and maybe you'll age actually vote random portent any lives. Amazing. Like it's filled up early. She felt very Charlie. She holy, but then they have agents, seven years as completely bowl in the bowl. Calf was atrocious. I was like an employee shitty and it was terrible. It was like college, special effects, one. It was terrible at that point. I was just kind of with it because it was just like, this is just such a weird who made the other old decayed yet. Other than a decade. John that bit look wagon looking ragged as never near the wow, what happens does make up on the sandwich. That'd be fourteen years. Oh, no, no, because it seven years in known as seventy zip. Hip Hollywood man. So back to back to that though, I think they wanted Lincoln. I want to say that I love that they show with a somewhat to queer relationship in Maxine Wadi by the end. But I don't know that they gave back seen enough with them Shen they kind of started to, but it didn't really click because she again, she was kind of a massive manipulator. And they definitely moved that she's over correct about that. They definitely moved in a way that she was just like, I can't live like this. I can't be living the lie that I helped to create, but I wanted there to be more of a redemption for and again, I just I don't know that I saw so as much as I love that there is a happy couple of two, six women with their child. I don't know. It's totally because I know one of them did. I know what did. And for me the minute on. How I I knew a lot was unchanged, but my my opinion essentially Maxine wouldn't be sexual with Lodhi unless she was in John Malkovich Mel Vanni and I was like, whoa. And that was like a one point. Like she goes like Legos the kiss Maxine engineers, none on not like this. And I was like all of a sudden. She's like English. Like, you know, woman woman relationship. Now I'm like twenty minutes ago in the movie. You are willing to even kiss her because you look like a girl. So I felt like back for me was regular, like all of a sudden you're okay with that. Which like hopefully in the real world, people will see past gender judge Talia on all that stuff. But like for me in a movie in nineteen ninety nine, they kind of a rage, the trans. They tried to arrange the transfer of the comment yet of only one the sleep with our. I've a man in a man's bond in a man's body. For me, that was the hardest thing to swallow was not only now all of a sudden year in this like lesbian Clark, slow raising a baby..

"There's only so far weaknesses -sarily stay tonight that yet again, Dan, when we're talking about bisexual, I also want to make sure that for being clear, we're talking about loving a gender that is the same or different as opposed to Lilly nail. Yup, the Yeah. yeah. So we're, we're talking about that will be talk about a bisexual character bisexuality, but that said they sort of I'm worried that the writers were looking at this as saying, we want Maxine laid the a couple by the app. So this is so Lodhi assuming that she's trans is actually her processing that she's a lesbian or bisexual, Rebecca, I feel like particularly from the writing staff from the UN nuance play, a lot of folks tended to write these scripts. It would have been like, I don't know. She's changing the lesbian, so no, maybe we makes the trans. She'll turn the lesbians, and it's just like now that like I don't. I don't understand this logic, but this is a logical people did fall. So. Just picking voices. Feeling a lot of people though as sexuality and gender, different compositions. I'm like ten kid. Explain. I gotta go. And I think to its credit in some ways, a lot of these left unsaid. And so because of that, you kind of fill in the lace on your own. But to that other accepting has neither character necessarily states whether they are by sexual, whether they are a lesbian. There is a certain extent that Maxine says I kept the child because you were in mouth with age. During that time you are the father. I thought that was an interesting thing, even if it is still very messed up in fairly like again, you you kind of if you're gonna enjoy the film, you have to put that aside, but really am. And there is still that like elements. But I mean, I, yeah, I think I definitely about economically see the whole like. You know, own non Chan the look that realization. You know, we'll generally from nineteen ninety nine business Cree pretty advanced. They use a lot of words that now to like, would it be acceptable? But like overall, Trenton is sexual representation lessening of in the film wasn't as cringe-worthy as I was going as I was expecting him when did not like you know, and also showing bisexuals as manipulating people, you know, in donuts, you know, I will say that most of the movies that showed that don't show should straight men very in a very good light either. Yeah, so I kind of feel like it's tips for that point. Like we're just showing shitting people being, shouldn't people. As a crucial, you're bisexual, naturally, you're bad and you're using manipulation. It's like I will make relations only by sexual are dumber by catchable every Calkins moving must be factual. Yeah. And so I love the ending. I really do what you have to. You have to kind of in this ending of so many different stories. You know, the ending, the ending me as early, the ending of the guilty. So many things like, so I'm really ending of the Phil on when they do that because they stab wish that if you enter like I don't. I love the concept of yet, and I love the way that they showed the very end. I don't know that I necessarily loved the execution because even like of Diana, I were watching like I missed the part where and spoiler alert from this movie from nineteen ninety nine. At the very end of the movie, John cusak junks out of John Malkovich in order to what he thinks is save Maxine. The woman that he is in cash awaited with and has been in a married relationship as John Malkovich for a number of years yet even says seven years, seven years later. So he exits and in the world of the peace, you have to enter the vessel on their forty fourth birthday before midnight. Because after that, it moves to a different this. And so all of these older folks who are trying to not die, go into the vessel in. He says, I'm gonna. I'm gonna. Go back in. I'm gonna be John Malkovich again and you're gonna love me. And then it just has to Laudi and Maxine at a pool with with their child..

"Secondly, I took a more like the undertones of fans as the like, like, I took a liking like more like. Out like you've been John Malkovich. You know, like John, and that's how I took it less of the the, it's a faith that we in alleged clears in LGBT people constantly cat. This one I would like. Like you're like, just a lake. Someone else embody maybe we should be thinking about identity politics at this moment. Like maybe we should back up by the digital one brain and seeing ever is. So it was like, oh, and that the transgender on store like car came out of nowhere for me though is like, you have such an amazing. I'm via for film. What is it? Wasn't it? I mean, I don't ever mind or trans storyline, but I was like, had you dealing a lot with this film. And I think because particularly at that time in it's still ninety nine and this is not me saying it was ninety nine so kid. That's not what we learn. For the raiders. It was still looked at as like, oh, this is a minor fan. Yeah, yeah. Okay. She can just change bell. Yes, she's gonna get like any. They didn't call it. I was very say, I was very fan, but the holiday quote unquote sex-change. She said, I'm going to get sex reassignment surgery. It was within like a very quick spur of, yeah conversation. And then they kind of bring it up here and there. So I kind of wish that they had gone into more. They like, oh my God, I loved this. Does this mean that I'm trims? I don't know, because I think that would have been a more interesting story of like, what does this mean? Okay. The movie itself can really be if you know advantage, you could've been Ford if a move they really could've taken toward different live. We haven't even gotten full storylines and there's this whole like old people think no hobbies. So leg run a touchdown for right now, which I have. I have a lot of information both on civilize initially, two different stories. Okay. I can't remember the name of the writer, but he's Olympic writer. Makes a lot of it was two different stories. Puppeteer who's married and in finds out that he's in love with another woman and also a story that he was thinking of where you can enter the head of Germany out and he combined engine. So that is okay. NS to do amazing to the movie as a filmmaker. I'm constantly asking writers like gotta cut ten pages, tie like I can't have a script as a luncheon, five pages needs. Ninety tip. May it happen solidity to stories of such debts n. b. like we initiate in a half. That's that's does make sense. Why felt kinda divided marriage is they really put a, went solar, a transfer. It could away people with, you know, the taking over body kind of story, and they really, I feel we missed out what ends I am from LA. To really great movies, could we made? And we only have one decent work saying, you know, not fantastic for details will in there's there's there's a major breakdown because I had thought about what I was looking through earlier today critiques. 'cause you know, it's been out since ninety nine hundred. A lot of people aren't taking it and able to have opinions right. And specifically the, the commonality that I saw, particularly looking at Lahti there's the narrative whole pieces, so urinating to be someone else. And that's across the board. Everyone wants to be someone else in some facet show so much of the trans experiences actualising. In real life that so much of what it is and so sometimes that's and sometimes that can be through either a when you're young playing even when you're older, like drag during performance play and sometimes taking on percent of this, but it's not about being someone else. I think that's where the raiders fell flat his as much as again, it was commonly understood narrative of trans folk that it's like you're, you're becoming someone else you experience time in somewhere else. That means you're different now who end. Would it would make you a different? I mean experience like that they love five minutes. I could definitely say it would..

"I think that it was sold mutual respect for each other. There was still friendship thing. I felt what was sudden it was like abuse and he essentially ties her up in rows, earn to a cage actually shared it with a monkey. In weird, it's it's, there's so many. Yeah, so many things so. Will it. And I think that there is something about like, I think what they were trying to do with that would say that because it was so almost fictive to be John Malkovich you would get coached, theon, what you think you're capable in order to experience that for like turn a high again and or this I, I actually felt that that rang true. Immediate still jumped a little bit, but it jumped because the stakes are going higher because he was becoming excess with this other woman, two variant healthy extended. It really did show how unhealthy accent was, and it gave her who be even though she wasn't necessarily tear being manipulator was to find a way to use that to manage. So so as far as the movie itself and finding the way it tracked for me like it never necessarily sow Sean of NFL's. The only thing like if did feel very like if he's going to be this kind of freebie end of abusive to this woman that he's infatuated. Yeah, of course. He's going to do that to the woman that he that trust in the most. Yeah. And so because I was seeing that behavior, the way he was a approaching Maxine if didn't feel On on you you. took it out on his life saver. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think no, that's very poignant and go back to the whole by sexual kind of. Yeah, you're right. Thirty Disney, very marvel universe league Gillan of if he would be the key. You. Been John Malkovich. It'll be us later. Marble leads to jump on my goodness. It was the actually I would. I would go movie passports on. I would abuse that fruit wage. But I do think bringing up the bisexual. Any. Maxine end, his wife who. I mean transit, not trans, still bisexual, right? I think actually talking about bisexuality in this context is a good way to start talking about Lodhi and all of the conversation that happened virtually near the end. Like let's let's talk about Laudi will listen, opinion, Maxine and bisexuality. Let's come back to that. After we talk about lot, he. Percents. So Lodhi goes into John Malkovich said experiences the in John Malkovich, and immediately. The first thing she says is essentially like, oh my gosh, I've never experienced something like this. I'm trained I'm, but we, she put it was and I wrote it down. Hold on a little later. We will not calling from myself or Ashley direct, quote film. Yeah, so that's life. So some of the things she said include, it's it's life, not the vich has a penis and join up. I'm just like the referring in fact that his physical body has like still has a penis, but he because he has a conduit for people to enter his brain is like he has a China. And then after that, she says, I've decided that I may transsexual which is immediately followed in at that time that were moving away from popular lexicon, but it was still in there. Molly would sense. Yeah. And then junkyard John cusak said, it's a phase the feeling of seeing through someone else's eyes filing. The one time I didn't get offended by today's will end. I think the only reason that I kind of like me because it's not necessarily. 'cause from me, whenever I hear that is just like, don't be fucking like, I'm not saying that Lodhi is trans fat, but at the same time it's just like, fuck yourself like immediately. It's like you're hearing this from your wife and your first thought is not. Okay. How can I be supported? What can I do and give it? He's he's a, he's a dirt bag to an Email, you know, in mill, you're lucky enough to have like a really accepting amazing why you're, you know, there's a lot of people would be given information that many nicest thing it say is Jan. Like everything by that would like a non. And I kind of felt like those valves, the line, let's face. It was one of those. Like for me, I heard it as like. Grow, please like you just like a introduce body like back office..

"But if it was written like six months later, they were like move. We need to regain this calico, but a letter shown very different Suzanne movie. We very like, oh, like now this personality yet it felt a lot like there are certain beats that they wanted to put the. They wanted to make sure happened, but the end up in league. And as a result, she turns into like, I was watching this with my wife last night and one of the things she says it was like, you know, it was still satisfying, but there is a certain extent Maxine is the surge type of that, like bisexual manipulation. Yeah thing that you see in a lot of sexual characters. And so for this, it was it still felt satisfying, and I'm still trying to figure out exactly why, but. It's definitely you can't watch it and say that that was presence yet. But yeah, the I really did enjoy Maxine. I think so much of that was because Husak character. I can't remember his name accused next character. The puppeteer. He was just a complete bag shit up. I hated him so much. So as much as she was taking advantage of him and she was definitely taking advantage of John Malkovich as long as she was I, I felt a lot of sympathy early on for her because I think that the especially ninety nine, the writers will probably think we're gonna feel for John Husak so much. And it's just like, I don't know. Fuck that guy. He sees this woman. He's like, are run like, that's literally kind of how you react. Yeah, not too, you know. But he was just like, like primal instinct, I walk this for man, so I'm going to impress her high. You're great yet, and just. Awkward, and that's fine. People can be awkward, but it was very grievously, bad kind of awkward in in Vegas did not do anything. No, you know, they, they made him look in over the choice, but like it's Eric greasy. It was right, and she was she was basically willing to give his of the doubt until he said he was puppeteer suddenly Sunday, she just immediately. Nope. I'm gone. Early lousy are harmless. Angela. And I, you know, I have friends that are puppeteers. I don't think would would they use another like like I. You could see my bucket. Allied in the movie on the show you my. That's what I'm going to show him here. You want to come to my other. I think think it it was was what what it it was was. taking like house. Even as diligent. Like an publish this. I mean, especially like it'd be having like in a boss or something that lake, you're so present throughout the movie. Like in the background. One of his turn to Annabel what is happening Willon and especially what I appreciate it. I don't. Let's really want to say I liked is about, but like I think I created the Maxine character and the the big part of that from you lose that she hunter became the puppeteer almost immediately, especially when she realized he wins in having Malkovich. And again, there's a lot on pack with that in that sentence, I am all of that because she's absolutely manipulating a man, but as no control over his body Darah that again, like, that's, that's a lot of things. I've unpacked, we'd this movie in order to watch it and to some extent enjoy it yet. But yeah, it was because he gets really dark really dark Allen almost nowhere. Oh, like eagles from John Cusack county goes from being really creepy and weird. Two very physically abusive? Yeah. Which to me is covered almost in a not that I a quick. 'cause go abusive strength, but I really like it carried off into look like was so we almost didn't. I love it. You struggled when he was like five or fours, his wife down, and you know, there would let struggle there was clumsy. Next would still they're dropping the gun and you find us. Theater of, but I felt like. She, it was out of his character like even creepy Guida lurks in like the creepy guy, not the assault die. Yeah. I kind of felt like that came out of nowhere like it would still his wife who in the beginning even, you know, even might not have been a loving today..

"She's just like, it's our is equal to Shirley's there on mobster. Yeah. The unrecognizable, the life. Wait. What like I looked at the cast just as who was in it two days ago. I was like, oh, in other wash the movie. I'm like, oh, that's where she comes in her. Yeah. Well, the transmission, but with the name of the actor who plays Maxine, Catherine, Keer, Catherine Geena Daniela, and she on a s s supporting actor or best actress, I think is the official term for female. Monstrous, but best supporting actress nomination for this for this as she did not want to do it late. She just she didn't understand why she getting this arch. She didn't see anything really Dima on the character other. Yeah, and you can actually see like she did a really good job working through that in creating an interesting character out of it because I actually, I loved Maxine Moore's getting in hurts. Yes. Like when you look at the fact that he John cusak is this creepy in one of my notes is that if this was made today, he would be a super villain in the marvel cinematic universe events. Just what freebie his hail. He knowing what he wants, he wants to get pay. I'm up jitter. The. He got punched in the movie essentially puppet doing like pretty much copying walls, like with sexual. New York street? Yeah, here's this little girl. Ooh, let's puppet on the dad. Finally like she the up and she's that. They're like being sexual and just knocked him out. No. Good. Like you have a kid with navy with Shelvin alibi if I turn around on my seven zero watching puppeteer make puppets home. I. You'll mend stalker show the kids suffering. Even that like the opening puppet show. He was doing that in public. That would have been impressive looking just like the puppet itself was like doing flips into roles, Yahoo, actual actual puppeteer that mood, like I mean, I don't know how things of cheers, but letting whoever built those and did American at, you know, movement jemele I was like, I don't even understand how could move wouldn't op drives in that way and how you can move your fingers in such a why is really quite fascinated. Yeah, now it was. I mean, it was a lot of odd things about. I mean, the, you know, the puppet correlation in the film pretty much is do with using John malkovich's body a puppet just rhetoric here. So we'd see how John Cusack is so good at puppetry in that he's able to take over his Audie essential. But then there was a lot of holes like. Welcome how come you didn't got shutout pitch in from. The Florida will have him and they kind of a couple of things that you have to really like. I think it's probably seen it a couple of times as well. There a couple of lines. It seem almost like from away lawns. It makes sense in the story I o not let I figured it out. I just I have to be calm when I'm home in Tucson. Irby's your second, knock the I can stay in JR. And like those wines like we have to justify within the scripts on how I just let them say him so good. Really, oh, if taken a pill, the sure that is always an easy. He's yeah, there's a new pill over is. Yeah, it's a movie. Yes. Called gives a movie. I like it. Good fill everything we need to for the plots. Yes, yeah, it really. It was a la- dream. So the and you know what, we'll we'll get a lot of a little bit is Lottie is the main meeting the 'tatoes of why we're talking about this, but we'll, we'll talk about her second one focus on Maxine for because I know that you mentioned you were just like you just not get behind the next. I literally couldn't. I love me a strong powerful woman, especially shown like gods. You know, I think need more award and bet with everything for me like gimme a powerful person. Cho- women charge. But in there was nothing regaining from me about her even at the end. She's pregnant. She's a little bit more emotional, more loving on am I felt almost like the angles and I don't know..

"It's terrifying, but they're amazing all. So for those who haven't seen the, do you wanna give so for for those who haven't seen it? Just why we are gonna talk about the plot and I do I will throw it. I recommend seeing if we'll talk about whether we thought it was enjoyable experience like I would recommend seeing down just in general just because it's fascinating, but would you feel comfortable giving a synopsis of what happens in this. Sure. I would say in unhappy couple both trying to make each other happy, but nothing able to one. Finally, one was the upper tier John John Cusack, John Cusack of teary decided to get a regular office job where he falls in love with his youthful woman pretty much on onsite and her character wasn't really developed back raise and other weather who loved his girl. Feelings about Maxine. Bulls in level next scene and together they thought they wanna finding portal actives hatched Lord office of and the portal essentially sucks you into John Malkovich ins monster to end. You see things from his eyes until point of view, and then it the total time of stumps you out in the middle of of one hundred major yet. I don't know why John Malkovich was really can be the end of my brain, not being the portal out, not be jersey. Like I told mine would be like. Tell or not. Jersey time. I, I feel like part of that was just so that they could make sure that the characters to get back to you. Yet. So. Shove so that you made a eventually. These two people are charging other people talking clients to come in and go through the portal, two hundred dollars to be exit, your wife for fifteen minutes and be John Malkovich, and then against eventually. Data's on. Take over John, not vicious. Hold me. Like eventually, John cusak starts for Saint John Malkovich to save things that he wants to wish freaks out job out of that he is not happy. I felt for John Malkovich spoke much in this movie and particularly will kind of get to this Maxine was played by one of the haircuts was awesome. Get out and now seem get out. I'm like, I can't look at this movie the same way. This is an horrifying movement. That's that's what I did not. I was thinking a lot about get out any in. Obviously it was at least twenty years ago dead on ninety nine I think was here on the end to go to like I didn't tuned together balancing hydros for the whole time. I was like, allow get out, definitely got a lot of its ideas from being John Malkovich of your get out. Then I would say, instantly watch us move and you'll see the parallels now even more, but it's a Mac OS, but yet. What is it? Actually, I looked it up before. I can't remember because I see her in a lot of things just wonderful. I'm gonna look it up right now while he talks release antastic in both shelves. But if you're a fan of Gadot I'll definitely suggests watching because it has strong connections there. Yeah, yeah. So the reason that we are talking about this show on earn with the reason we're talking about being John Malkovich on this show is because there's a character body who's played by Cameron Diaz who is unrecognized muggings on. Apparently they gave a the director whose name completely forgetting spike Jones cycle who they gave psych Jones complete, like, hey, we don't know what to do in this character. Sue, just whatever it's not specifically described. So she's got frizzy hair..

"So I'm transfers, you can be transferred. Sometimes the sh the show, Gary puncture need some five actual. Thank so thank you. Thank you for that actually own legend. I think like what we have to learn, I think that you know, if you don't want to kick the person, you were five years ago on the fates, then you're not growing enough of the person. You know, hopefully we won't regret last year's. Trust and with language in people that are constantly changing and shifting. It is something that we have to kind of keep in check one percent in sometimes you release a thing like that. You maybe don't like how you raise the thing and they'll help you never know. Need to make sure that I'm next thing this thing moving forward that I think I'll, yeah, I would not some great discussions. My my opinion on hiring train factors were exclusively friends roles in method. I was unprepared change that query, but like my Molly ITO, I give up that might not be scared of Acton transforming to to play. If there's, you know a role them in the past to play them, the enemy acid Frenchwomen Nacchio uncomfortable that they might go into record destroy thing on knowledge ING, like make of give him a carton. They know it's coming in, they have scripted hand then. Them the option. Yeah. Now. Yeah. So today we're talking about being John Malkovich. I got her low on our Chad. Hello, Melissa. So that's a being John Malkovich. I watched this on comedy central years and years ago, like growing up like in mckees interrupted any as comedy, like bizarre. But yeah, I guess it would be combination. Yeah, it's it's kind of comedy because it's so absurd that you're kind of laughing because you're not white following what's so. And there are some things that I'm no makes sense. The don't like they take it just seriously enough yet that it's even the most ridiculous things like the fact that they're on a Florida that half the size. I have other floors because I think of like like running like the Bill that you didn't that like the tiger they belived higher office building half the size, like and the extra immediately twenty. Five hours a day in your old walk in on chill out, knowledge. Before the movie came out. If I was an extra they're, they're like, oh my God. I noted what this movie is to keep like walking by. And over. Like an you. Look actors were doing different things like some were just doing the normal. This one guy that was just doing this the entire time of lines rate. I live commentary. It was, I don't. I mean, how do you feel that he really like? What do you think that significant of the floor was in the moody by saying. I think they there were some elements that they just wanted to make the audience not necessarily uncomfortable, but thank like this guy doesn't really want this job like they end. So I think about party. Nate. I think part of it was like building up this idea that he wanted to be someone else and it's not an he necessarily wanted to someone else as much as he could be where he worry. Yeah, and so I think that was a part of it. There's probably other like the director in Renier are very tight lipped about their symbolism live, aided, but they gotta any been bugging some of the reviews that are John Malkovich heads, say what he thinks the movie was out, but they, they need the choice not to necessarily say why the navy decisions they did I, I was, you know, average, I really like athletic on thinking, maybe it can represent. That we only own half of our minds. We only own Hafer stays while you're station. This world isn't hurry hours and you can easily be influenced against from outside forces such as Puerto. And in that you didn't in the only half yourself. And I think that that could maybe be some kind of love that, like really made me have to think what the hell does that mean? And maybe it's maybe it's the. Yeah, it's only part of a person if you don't joy your jaw. Yes. The movie start? Well, I guess that's how it started with the near help achieve that are amazing..
