I i start writing about them in the late eighties now. My first book was published in nineteen ninety-three but you know my research started in the late eighties. He didn't become a cultural icon at that time but by the time my book got published a ninety three he did so it was great timing for me. What drew me to him as a subject.

"The guys locker. You know. it's it's it's it's conspiracy of both the older old school white generation of superiors in the department but also also the people that are working next directly above of and like everybody is saying things to each other and not to him and begins to drive him nuts as it would anyone he starts doing john boyega shouting john boyega shouted because nobody will come out. The face have been the open which yeah like. It's it's it's it's it's a very frustrating wash after something as nourishing shaka's lovers rock. I guess Yeah and i do think that's that is the ideal position rate between mangrove and red white and blue. Because it's just those two movies are so i mean. Mangrove is less exhausting right because that is funny a lot of ways frankly the performances are so invigorating whereas yeah there is a sense of exhaustion in red is just like it's just a seeing. Somebody walks slowly into a wood chipper for eighty one med. Yeah i will say that. You're let's talk more about your sense of what is born out right in the hazing. And all the bullshit that biographers. Up with 'cause i think by the end of red white and blue. I didn't get the sense that mcqueen is making. I didn't get the sense. That mcqueen is making leeway. Logan out to be silly for having that kind of faith in them. I don't think that it's necessarily that. He's making him out to be silly. But i don't think that anybody could make him out to be smart either like i mean it's just i mean because like the the toast between him and his father over like you know the half drake You know plastic handle of rome is the two of them after both after obvious lovers. Tiff under a single hallaj at lightbulb. Drinking shitty liquor being like i guess life goes on. I don't think that's the queen lauding leroy for as decisions. It doesn't feel like that to me. Yeah i guess it's just that the way that they talk about progress right like the the the thing that can logan says you know progress. That is a slow wheel. Ternan like i don't know there's there is a measure of ambivalence in that statement. That feels like it's not incompatible with what leroy logan believes in it's just that leroy attitude and his sort of arrogance about it is so off putting and it feels like in the end cash to say. Look if you are going to be this optimistic assimilationist about about stuff. You at least need to not be idiot right. Like i think at the scene when after it's like in the middle of the recruit the new recruit training at the police department. You remember the scene where they're in the classroom and they're all introducing themselves and fucking. John boyega gets up and he gives like a real housewives of atlanta thing. About how like. I'm not here to make friends. Yes he is that it's really adjust. Yes way what is this. It's it's very lake. I don't know it. Just he. Just i don't feel like i'm not rooting for him. Throughout the trout. The cell you know. Do you feel about him throughout it. 'cause i yeah you're i don't know if i was rooting for him because it's just like i've seen wearing that's kind of like you've seen that movie before you've read it multiple times you've heard your parents talk about it you you got a bunch of speeches at at at family gatherings there is like it's it's out there that way of thinking is out there and i don't really need to see it again so what i'm watching it is for john wigan john boyega stuff like and even that is not enough because it's just kind of like i'm annoyed by this way of thinking. Yeah we'll make and but even so in that stuff. The things that i love most about the fell were like the pain interactions between father and son which were just like which sunk really to me like the scene where he's driving him off to school like you know stubbornly he's just like come on tickets of that. Whatever hug bald toys. Yeah because it's like the sad. Our green song is playing and like you know. They can't talk to each other. The whole car ride and then he's just like all right. Well good luck at school and gives them a hug our green. How can you mend a broken heart. Oh man you at the music and the music and small axe is good and so very good I look forward to watching the rest of these movies. I will say that. Yeah i feel pretty good about a. It's there is. I feel like in our episodes of sound only so far. I guess we don't. We obviously don't just cover movies and tv. We cover a lot of different things but of the things we've covered. I feel like we've been hard on more things than we've been bullish on. Is that a fair estimate rate. I'd say that's that's probably fair. Yeah home we've got. You know this is i. I like small acts a lot. A alex wheel and education. The last two movies coming out. December eleven december eighteenth respectively. You know maybe you'll have time to talk about them by the end of the year the honestly next week we tell my next week mica next week we are going to hold our noses and dive into the cold cold confusing waters the kojima verse. Yes we're also gonna talk about like cyberpunk crai-. Yeah i like you know. Hopefully if his out you know we can touch it by then. We'll we'll talk about cyberpunk twenty seventy seven. What's like one if it's okay. But to several twenty seventy seven is reportedly. A one hundred and seventy-five our video game so even if it is out it's we're like i will only have scraped the surface three percent of his game so maniac later. Maybe i don't know might be a couple of weeks for we get fully cyber cyberpunk. Maybe we'll have some preliminary thoughts. We'll pull something together. You can email us. Who do what to do.

"Now on amazon. That is unlike anything else. You'll see right now. it's called small axe. And it's the work of the british director steve mcqueen. The new yorkers richard brody was just blown away by small acts and he spoke with steve mcqueen. Recently here's richard steve. Mcqueen is the director of four feature films hunger shame and widows and is best known as the director of the husker winning twelve years of slave. Do i upset the master and mistress you less than than their florida's a decent man slave under the circumstances thirty slave trump you jerry eight and his face steve. Mcqueen's new project is called small axe. It's on the bbc in the uk and amazon here. But it's not actually a tv series. Rather it's a collection of five separate feature films each of which deals with a different aspect of lives of west indian people in london from the late nineteen sixties through the nineteen these new men new types of human beings. Them that ought to be fun. All the traditional virtues of the english nation not indicate as inefficient society but in full flower rita because these men have you had this in mind from the very start of. Your career is a feature film maker. At what point did this project. Crystallized point two thousand and two thousand eight two thousand nine right listed. They need at some point. Will have to come this point but it wasn't ready yet because there was fear. Basically a honest with you. You know you need that distance in time and space to be brave delve into them because they're so close. Mcqueen himself grew up in the west indian community in london and from the very beginning of the small act series which is to say from the first moments of the first film mangrove. It's obvious that small is a work of great personal urgency and of love mcqueen is now in his fifties but he's been a film and video maker for more than twenty years and it's as if he's been waiting his entire career to tell the stories small lacks some of the stories in the series are drawn from history. Some he imagined and others emerged from his personal experience. One of the films in the series education is derived from the queen's own experiences student in london and in particular from the racial bias that he both experienced an observed there on friday day. Nothing the teacher came to the classroom for about ten seconds just or morning during nothing come by the shooter. Make animal noises so boring. Lost was born yet but this isn't even a school teachers. Don't teach you anything you chatting about. I'll explain basically there. Were these schools. The education subnormal schools which were created in the late sixties early seventies and these words of house people who they thought of can cope with school and lot of those children were of western descent black descent and what happened with black me that time with the parents involved where they had these things called saturday schools where they can afford back to know to take their children out of these sort of dead end so the educational systems. I'm a moderate tree wise growing up in london. I was horrified to learn them. Call my eldest who have strong west indian accent column slower as a slow coach. When infra surival schools notice the boy it could read and write and do some basic arithmetic when tree role. Because i'm sure him could if a teacher tinker tiles chop stuff that beer up i give up ferry my l. this with a won't make up into to give up my job if i have to tell me what we can do for them. Send them to one of us up. Lamentably saturday schools. That's the first thing you can do now and there are free so that was your experience. You'll you attended. You attended a saturday school value. I tend to schools. Tend to the first one in hammersmith saturday school when i was even find you another one later on in west london. Yes so that was education. It was like the current pulling me back into the sea a bit because i didn't want to confront that was. There's all this stuff is the current lying on the beach at current is dragged into slight. Was yourself this you cannot resist. I is one of the most original films in the series. is lovers. Rock lovers rock the story of blues a blues party. Which is what we create. This film was a party where people will turn their front rooms of discotheques and this happened because black people were not really invited into an to clubs in uk so they would roll up the top in the front room. The couch everything into the back room and making this kotecha. The living room is empty of furniture and full of dances. Young men and young women gathering together dancing separately. Dancing together as a dj. Hase's the crowd with his choice of music. Lovers rock is simply one of the great modern musicals. It's graceful romantic. Drama also brings to light underlying social crises in the community the story of money and of gender based violence but ultimately it's a work of expensive rapturously racism and it's thrived in large part from the experiences of steve mcqueen's aunt. My aunt lives nocturnal adventures in london. Young my grandmother was very quite a quite strict and she wouldn't allow her to go to these sort of all night parties but my uncles leave the door open for to go. Again is very west indian party on saturday church on sunday. And that's what happened to her. So you know it's interesting story really one of the things that struck me about the three of the films that i saw is their stylistic diversity the subject the story subjects are very different and the way you film them is very very different. So for instance lovers rock. It's virtual musical. Yes that's where. I was awesome. I wouldn't want to make musical foot for a long time. But it's like how do you find it and i think we found it found away way because that that place was a place where people could be themselves for night. I mean it's like the working class person. I mean a lot of young people nine to five jobs. Unfortunately facing into the racial situation that jobs and unrest being targeted a lot by police is a lotta of tension or the western community especially the second generation because they were their parents. They want meek. They fought back and this place become became this refuge. Those young people spacey wasn't as space their parents gave them. It wasn't as space that Anything else was space day invented perfume. The with the music of the time which was which was loves rock. I have to call attention to that moment. In the center of lovers rock when the.

Beastie Boys Made a Movie. We Made a Beastie Boys Podcast.

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this. Is the big picture a conversation? Show about Beastie Boys. That's right beastie. Boys made a movie beastie boys story which is directed by Spike Jones and available to watch right now on apple. Tv plus. If you're like me and worship Beastie boys you need to watch this movie later in the show. I'll be talking to add rock. And like diaw Beastie boys about their movie history their favorite fruits. How they're doing in quarantine. The New York Knicks documentaries that they want to see a bunch of other stuff as I tried to keep them focused on our conversation. A really love these guys beastie. Boys are my favorite band ever and it isn't even really close so to talk about them before we get to them. I asked the VIC Ferrari to my Alessandro Allegra. Join me it's Chris Ryan. Hi Chris. I've always seen myself more as a Nathan Wind Guy. I've been waiting my whole life to do this. Podcast so let's go. I'm very glad you're here with me. I can't think of anybody else. I'd WanNa have here other than you. Except maybe Mike the Inadequacy and they're coming later. So when I say beastie boys what's the first thing that pops in your head Chris? Probably the invention of cool so I think one thing that we've talked about a lot over the last twelve to eighteen months. We've had a lot of Quentin Tarantino podcasts. We've we celebrated a lot of his movies on the watchable. We talked about them on. Big Picture Podcast with him and something that comes up. Ally is kind of how he gave us a vocabulary or language to through which to understand culture and understand the world and I think the Beastie boys are equally responsible for that in both of our lives in terms of introducing us to so much music and so much other culture that wound up becoming just part of our like way in which we relate to the rest of the world through these like Kung Fu and exploitation movies through rap Reggae punk rock weird funk like all like it just basically made collectors and fans out of out of us at the risk of stepping on music exists. I wanted to ask you why you think you. And I to some extent to are so interested in figures who are all about basically like recombinant culture. You know who take all the disparate parts of stuff that they love and smash it all together because that is the thing that the movie and then returning to all of this music that I listened to over and over and over and over again in my life that I have thought about is like wow they really just jammed all the stuff they liked together to make something new like. What is it about that? The second part of what you said is the most important thing. Do you think about the people that we really respond to. Wu Tang clan quitting Tarantino. Beastie boys it means we're very basic very and B. It's the most important part is finding the second thing the thing that you're GonNa make out of all this shit. And that's what makes me so excited is when someone uses all these postmodern tools in these reconstructs. All these things out of this of Cultural Ephemera to say something else. Wootten Klan took all those Kung Fu movies and took all those samples but made something that could only have been made in Staten Island. You know back could only have made the music. He made with the experience that he had. And the Beastie boys could only have been the beastie boys by combining bad brains with run DMC. Yeah and I feel like it's not a mistake that so much of what we do at the ringer and so much of what you and I have been trying to do in. Our lives is basically celebrate and be enthusiastic about the things that we care about and I feel like these artists are the same way if you if you think about Beastie boys and you even look at the way they tell their story in the movie. It's just we really liked was the clash and grandmaster flash and Cheech and Chong and we were trying to find a way to make all those things make sense together and I feel the same way about what we do every day I feel about you and I love the NBA and we love Top Gun and we love. I love deb's I don't know how you feel Dad's but You know just trying to find a way to make all those things fit together so I feel like I have aped and tried to copy a lot of what those guys do. And I feel like a kinship to their their mission their creative project. Absolutely I mean like you and I don't mean to make it sound like you. And I are the Beastie boys here but you know. I think that we use the Internet the way other people would use a sampler right and we draw in all these different media. We'd take youtube videos. We take a picture and I think it was probably more the case before we started working professionally together in an editorial capacity but we would have like tumblers and blog spots and you were just kind of like throw a picture Steve McQueen up in an article you were writing about those face and it would have some sort of relationship and I think that that was our way of continuing along this tradition of mixing and matching different pieces of culture to say something about yourself. The thing that you said that I think is probably one of the most important parts of the movie that will nocco very remarked upon because a lot of it is going to be spent talking about. Yok and it should be because this is very much I think an image to him in a real moving tribute to their friend but when Mike D says in the beginning of the movie that he was just this weird kid who found the clash. Not only is that like. That's the origin story for a lot of people. Who like they find that one band? Whether it's the dead or the clash or you know run DMC. Whoever it is that makes them think that they are now. All of not alone in the world the clashes like a really really important. Template for the Beastie boys because they are basically A Crossroads Group A marketplace. At Crossroads Group. It's where all these different cultures are coming. And they're setting up their wares and you can pick and choose off these tables and then you go home and you make something out of it. And that's what the clash did too. I mean you can make a lot of arguments about appropriation. And whether or not the people who the clash were taken from or or paying homage to properly compensated for the work that they did And the same thing could go. For the Beastie boys but I think a lot more people know about Lee Perry. Because of the Beastie boys did not you know and and that's like a really really important act in culture. Everything is about timing too I think about when they hit the scene and who they were working with and on the one hand I guess there's an appropriation question. I think they've moved past that so effectively because they were just literally there with Russell. Simmons and Rick Rubin and run DMC making music together and they were a part of something that was essentially punk at the end of its first true like lightning rod phase at the end of the day and and rapid the Dawn. You know I mean. They weren't there necessarily in in the parks in the south. Bronx but you know one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three played on the radio. Yeah Yes yes. And there's that great moment in the movie where Africa is asked about cookie. Post by one of the members of the Beastie boys and you can see like they're they're they're they're in the moment and they're going to dense area and you know performing for white people introducing them to wrap it away and that couldn't have happened if they if it was just five years earlier five years later. The same is true for the class. You know it's like they arrived at a time when the world was ready to hear rock and try to play reggae. And what that means for the future reggae. There's something also about this specific approach to the world though that jumps out to me. Which is it's not. Just this is what we like. It's this is what we like and I don't care if you don't like it and I don't I actually don't care if you don't get it because when I think about the things that I knew when I first heard the band it was you could fit it inside of a very small box. I just did my cultural reference points. The music that I knew about the the records the comedy everything that they were throwing in. I wouldn't say that I discovered them because they were sampled for three seconds on a on a record on policy boutique but they were a window. You know I had never heard of Sadaharu. Oh until I heard the beastie boys rap about him you know like there's so much in their music the sampling the lyric writing even if it is in their songs are very rarely like high minded. They're not necessarily pursuits of big ideas. But they put big ideas in front of you. Just by dint of what they were interested in and I I liked that kind of take it or leave it quality they bring to it and I feel like that really comes out in the movie too. Don't you think yeah? It's only a couple of people are lucky enough to have other people care about the thing that they care about. You know you can. You can play the game and you can try. Ride the wave of what's popular at any given moment. But it's so weird because what the beastie boys did especially once they move to La. I think wound up having such an incredibly profound formative effect on all the culture that comes after it but it so it winds up being underrated as as to what a zag that was how crazy it was for those guys to be like. Yeah we'RE GONNA LEAVE NEW YORK. We're GONNA leave behind rapper. We're going to go to capitol from Def Jam. And we're GONNA work with these two producers that basically no one's ever heard of an assemble these like really out there incongruous samples to build together a new sound that we're gonNA use to define us for the next couple of decades. The only thing I wanted to talk about because I think is probably also a reason why you and I like them. Much is that and this comes across very much in the movie much

"steve mcqueen" Discussed on Le Monde diplomatique - English edition

"April twenty twenty podcast from on diplomatic. My name is george. Mela and my guest on this program is john bird who is an artist. Writer curator emeritus professor of art in critical theory at middlesex university and the apron edition of the paper john rights by the artist and filmmaker steve mcqueen who had a major retrospective at tate modern in london until the gallery was suddenly closed because of covid nineteen mcqueen who turned fifty last year had an immensely successful career by any measure since winning the turner prize in one. Thousand nine thousand nine for his early explorations of the moving image. He's gone on to direct four feature films the most recent widows and twenty eighteen and and twenty fourteen twelve years a slave for which he received the oscar for best picture becoming the first black recipient of that award but mcqueen has by no means abandoned the gallery for the movie theater as you'll hear and has his recent exhibition showed before we got onto that. I asked john to fill in some background about mcqueen's korea before the nine thousand nine hundred nine prize. He was an all student. He was a chelsea first of all chelsea school of art and then he went onto goldsmiths college university of london in the beginning of the nineteen nineties student at goldsmiths from ninety to ninety. Four as you know the goldsmiths is the school that is most closely say. Cat who became known as the y. b. as young british artists it produced quite of quite a few including damien. Hirst so he comes out of a background of officials practice. He became interested in photography and film and video work at school and that became his medium expression. I think for quite a lot about at that period of the early nineties late eighties and early early nineties. It wasn't just the film and video offered to some extent to come different way. Don't for a new way of working. It was a break with the more traditional pass activities of painting sculpting so. He did that. He had a brief period in new york. Where east of the university. But then he. He's interesting that he's work was picked up actually really quite early on. I mean i think not only when he was college but very soon afterwards in in the early nineties he was in a way noted as one of the most original most interesting students coming out of that that goes miss background and he started making black and white videos.

Opening Act - Rumors in Rock

"First false rumor. Did you ever hear the rumor about Keith? Moon driving a Rolls Royce into a hotel pool. I've heard a lot of stories about Keith. Moon well. He is the quintessential rock and roll guy and bad boy he definitely collected Nazi memorabilia. He may have bitten. Steve McQueen's Hog and blew up his drums win. The WHO played on the smothers brothers. Comedy Hour. I cannot wait to do his episode I am. I have like four books based on. Keith Moon I am. I am locked and loaded. I Love Keith. He is my soul. Well so those things may be true however there was a rumor that he drove a Rolls Royce into a pool at the Holiday Inn in Flint Michigan on his twenty. First Birthday. This is not true. According to Pete Townsend. The story is actually a combination of two different stories. That has become one not true rumor. So Keith Moon. In one of the stories like one of the incidents he left the Hamburg off of a car and it rolled into a pool which was under construction and to not have any water in hit home. Which would be worse though driving? Dr Into a pool with water or driving a car into a pool without water but he didn't drive the car into that. I'm just like either one either or I'm just saying like it just rolled in on its own. Which would do more damage I think you're pretty much screwed either way fair enough. The cars a loss of it goes near the pool. Yeah Okay and then so the second story that this was combined with to create the not true drove. Rolls Royce. Into a pool was that he charged new car to the band. Who refuse to pay for it. So Moon drove it into a muddy pond in his garden and call the dealer to come pick it up. So it's too true. Stories rolled into one story right. That's not true. Yeah Oh yeah. It's incredible and that's not our last Keith. Moon rumor either. Nope our next one which is true now okay. I should say with the caveat that these are true and false based on articles that we both read and so there might be room for error. So this is just like fun. Yeah it's just fun and it's inauguration. It's yeah just what we found. No one has photographic evidence. It's just fun fun so I hope you guys out. Don't get angry and you're like that never happened or that did happen bub-bubba so like don't don't get mad at us is just this is just meant to be fun and a little bit looser so and just for us to kind of talk off the cuff so Our next one. Which is true. Is All about Ozzy Osbourne. Oh my so ozzy. Osbourne achieved infamy overnight after incident on January twentieth nineteen eighty two in Des Moines Iowa during the height of his drug problem. That is putting it mildly. Ozzy Osbourne was performing when an audience member through a bat on stage. The singer believing that it was rubber and I do believe that he thought it was robbery. I don't think he would have. I believe that too. Yeah bid off its head as a stunt only to find out that the bat was real and alive not only that but as he declares in liner notes to the two thousand two reissue of diary of a madman. The Bat wound up biting him as well which forced him to be treated for rabies. The incident fed his rock madman legend along with the one time that he bit off the head of a dove which basically what happened was when he first met with Columbia records in Nineteen ninety-one. He took a live dub into the meeting with him and bit off the head in front of the horrified executives. Awful yeah so crazy man out. I wouldn't sign him to a record deal yeah. He was also arrested for urinating on. Or near the Alamo. And while on tour with Motley crue he allegedly got into a one upmanship. Dare contest with Nikki. Nikki six and I'm sorry that is at is a contest. I would never even get close to know but he ended up snorting a line of ants better than biting the heads off live animals. I think though no okay. The dove thing is kind of unforgivable. The bad thing is understandable. But you snorted a line of ants would if they were fire ants also. You just have ants in your sinuses now. I'm sad I read that. Oh my God you have to elaborate immediately regretted it I apologize. You should move on move on Thanksgiving on next all right. Here's a good one Kay cass. Elliot choke to death on a ham sandwich. Can We bury this now? Please yeah really not cool. I don't like this lie at all. This rumors terrible are you. Doing Mama Cass. Yes I am all right so this came up. Following a series of sold out gigs. In London Mama Cass retired to her apartment where she died of heart failure on July. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Seventy Four. A rumor spread very quickly that she died from choking on a ham sandwich which is just a horrible thing to say you know yes. She was a little overweight route. So it's believed that the rumor started when Dr Anthony. Greenberg the physician who I examined CASS. After her death wrote she appeared to have been eating a ham sandwich and drinking coca cola while lying down a very dangerous thing to do. She seemed to have choked on her ham sandwich. So so great job Dr Greenberg for that one. But point of fact her autopsy showed that a heart problem leading to heart. Failure was the cause of death not a sandwich or any other item lodged in her throat or trachea. She had actually had very little to eat the day before she died like her stomach was pretty clear. No dead I'm actually going to piggyback and double down on a Mama Cass and Keith Moon. True story with us. They were not but they did die in the same apartment. Yeah rockstars have been taken from US. Way Too young and it just so happens that two brilliant musicians died in the same apartment at the same age of thirty two Singer Harry Nilsson I love. That's my alarm. Every morning I wake up to his song. GotTa get out okay. If you've seen the show Russian dolls you'll know why I wake up to a song every day but He renounced his London flat to friends when he was traveling. And so on June twenty ninth nineteen seventy four Mama Cass of the Mamas. And the Papas was staying in the flat while she was on tour and died of heart failure in her sleep and on September seventh. Nineteen seventy eight Keith. Moon of the WHO overdosed on a sedative in that very same apartment which is eerie because they died in the same apartment under the same landlord at the same age. How crazy is that? That's a little

"It's because he wanted to be doing that. Random he said nothing nothing. Nothing left to chance. He's a monster I think if he's if he's craft many others too. Many artists are really good at the form bit but for short on the content bit more the other way round with McQueen. You really do have such Riga. Not just in the way that they look and and the process that they're making but in the acute focus on the subject you know that that balance a former content in his work you know. It's so impressive. I think but he won't give you a subtext. He never tells you what the content is. That's the thing so therefore you know the content is there in abundance but it's for you to extrapolate. Does that remind you of anyone? Because that's what we're doing next. This is where we let let our listeners into some of the kind of critical tools ease some of the some of the things you take off your bookshelf. When you're writing Your Review Louisa. What have you chosen? It's really difficult to make Steve McQueen Belykh anyone because he just isn't he really is has influences. You can see sat not as being important to him. Warhol for example whatever but you know he is who he is but I looked though I came out of that show feeling bodily in weird and sort of discombobulated I kept thinking Francis Bacon. I kept thinking I mean totally different era different medium physicality about the body. I mean you know Steve. Mcqueen doesn't present as queer but they can make very much square. Oh but it's actually not about. You'll you'll predictions about sexuality about broadly. Bacon said I want to make the works directly on the nervous system and boy Steve McQueen work directly system so I think that sense of looking and feeling and being really there in the kind of the difficulty and the constraints spaces the boxes that the kind of minimal backgrounds. You know this whole sense of of really kind of gig wrapping load the word human human condition but you know there. It is with Bacon and there is to great extent McQueen Bacon also loved film and loved photography. And they're very cinematic. I think he's paintings also just about what? Bacon did with paint how he made paint all these weird things self taught. Interestingly McQueen's not talk but I like I just described themselves an amateur dot constant curiosity and I feel that he has in common with Bacon to the sense of Bacon trying to experiment. What paint could do what it made do likewise with McQueen different sorts of film stock whether it goes to panic in that one alumina wet where he lives up by television screen? Instituel camera trying to focus or whether it's a granular super. Eight with the western deep mind. You know he's always or the red red focus of the Charlotte. Rampling is all goes a bit voyeur in a bit sort of Red Light district all this confidence to be able to make film stock be something plastic aesthetic but carry all that meeting. I think they can do the same thing. That paint ejaculate spurts well. There's really fine veils the way you things are blurred to imply motion. All these things flesh skin I could hang on tweet. Gotti gave good tweet really paint a tweet coat your tweet but yeah there. Is that sense very much? I think you know they're totally different. Artists ears different everything but I do see some analyses there so Francis Bacon Ben. We've chosen chosen tricky. It was old because I don't necessarily think it was the best film in the show yet. It was the film. Mike went away thinking about constantly. Well so's hunting in mesmerizing. And and most hilly senator even though it was so documentary again. Mcqueen's brilliant these to these Dualistic qualities that he has but yes in and it prompted me to go back and listen to Maxine K. That grey album from nineteen ninety-five with your calls made in a similar period to win. Mcqueen was finding his language. You know and what an album. My word one is You know that I was a student in nine. Hundred Ninety five and it was a documentary soundtrack to our lives so many of us in that period and you think about that period in Bristol and portishead There dummy the year before and of course massive attack you. Tricky is a member of an an extraordinary fertile and dark wonderful period for purchase music. Yeah it's something that was was never It wasn't trying to be like anything. That came before seeing tricky. I saw the Royal Festival Hall. He got more mate with southbound on the South Bank anyways next encased album is that time I mean. He was mesmerizing. I was quite far. Back wasn't so much picciotto rather respectable and seeds but I mean he absolutely held voice in the way that he thinks. He's a great big tokes in Queens and indeed also during the concert is slow. But you do feel that you're getting stoned watching him in with him and he takes into very strange places without voice film being so deadpan was so brilliant. Mcqueen's film because he didn't need it tricky. Gave it all to you anyway. Beautifully said that was tricky. I our which was called. Maximum K nine hundred ninety five. Everyone will be putting it on now. Don't WanNa go home from this. Exhibition is and Louisa chose the work of Francis Bacon. I'm thank you both very much. Indeed for such expert insights into the Steve McQueen show which is on at the tate modern in London until maybe eleven. Thanks again to my guest today. Louisa Buck and then Luke.

"And it's a meticulous shooting of the construction of this concrete tomb. So you've got tremendous momentum Mori you are being completely led around. You are being made to go round the outside the screen you look at two very different sort of film qualities but you are so captured by this that you don't in any way think this is limited thing or will this is annoying. I don't understand what's going on you so brilliantly orchestrated but with such deftness Benz quite right about the rigor that because he's a rigorous but it's also lightness of touch the best line. Drawing you know looks completely effortless. You don't know that you'll being told this absolutely captivated my concentration threshold in film works even Remotely Bore Me Zero and you are absolutely captured in this work. There the works themselves in the fact that is you say McQueen makes you go the extra mile to investigate things that you want to go there all of them. What about the exhibition design at Tate? Modern for this particular show. How has that? How's it set up thinking about that work in particular that work is ever thus I think I wonder what about the Charlotte rampling when they're on all right? Projectors there's something architectural sculptural rigorous he's made he's down to the kettle design. Everything I mean. He's he's absolutely interviewed. Back in data tape recorders when he wanted to send in the cassette tape so they didn't want it being out there without takes on June. I mean he's regarded controlling about absolutely this is decades ago. But you know he's very so it's free it's reform you know you walk around but some of them. You have to like Western deep. The mindfulness talking about that has very particular screenings. Standouts on you actually see the countdown. The minutes reading time other works of free standing of the works. You have to go in and look cutting special special views. But it's not chronological. It's very carefully placed out. You can come in either end. I think. But you know it's it's advisable to go into the way that the first entrance and it's it's it's a piece of sort of ambience sculpture kind of in and of itself. There is a sculpture also in it which is one of the least successful country which is a bad. A bad actually made for reading jail. The whole project around Randolph Scott. Wild and he made the prison bed with a gold mosquito net hanging over it was just was completely in Congress. Didn't you said reviewed looks like another artist's work has been dropped in I think McQueen when he makes objects it's not successful. I'm with you on that and I actually Who also questioned. There are two words and they're really interesting works but they are very different with in McQueen's language and they are where he uses found material as opposed to She Tina material material himself. So one is good. Once upon a time and it easily these images that was sent up to space by NASA. And they'll still in the voyager spacecraft now traveling across the universe and then you have a soundtrack which is speaking in tongues. You know this sort of indecipherable language. And then you have another piece which is about pool Rogerson in state and US state surveillance of this major African American cultural figure and that that is then credits and it is simply a sequence of Redacted state memos that were sent in redacted drinking game to that one that's five hundred law every time they redacted just do a show. Yeah like may make it out alive if you dad and both of these pieces. I thought very interesting. Yeah looks lots of scope for investigation. I googled lots off drugs but at the same time I felt there was a sort of separation of in the language which made me pine for the works. That aren't show. You mentioned that it was often one thousand nine hundred nine thinking you know. We talked about the body earlier on. I long to see bad. That one thousand nine hundred ninety three to wrestling figures really important piece. He's breakthrough and also deadpan work. Which was famously shown in the Turner Prize which he and I wondered when I was in the show where they're actually just a show about the films would've done it would have made this. An absolute must see five star. You have to see this show as it is. I think they're all those. These found image works are less successful. They just feel to me to be it. In terms of their language they just not so affected. I agree with you about once upon a time the the NASA space probe images. Because it's the least slides going on of how we want to project how certain points of view in American point of view of certain era wants to projects. You know life on earth to to an alien species perhaps and it's all positive lovely and you can see the rest of the shows accountable to that off the talking tons and I agree with that she I think the end credits the robeson piece I mean. Of course it's impossible. You're not going to sit there for five is not conditioned to forty two hours of audio. Also it's quite annoying because the actual reductive dot com schedule a bit too far few able to read and the voice over doesn't actually correspond to the documents that you're seeing and you have to sit down and kind of recalibrate yourself to that and I find that it was quite annoying and then not instantly viscerally kind of impactful and an engaging as the films but I thought it was a really really powerful piece. Actually I love the fact that these documents seized crew d redacted documents of decades of Paul robeson being souped being surveyed by the show was quite extraordinary and actually it spoke so much about state power about surveillance about subjugation about this poor wretched man going about his everyday business. Not being so I just because you happen to have us out of Kilter with the mccarthyite times and I thought it was a really powerful piece in the new. You Never GonNa see. It was impossible. And it's still ongoing. I kind of like that because it's not it's not an easy consumable is an open ended. Art Work that you do kind of sits and go into a reverie about so. I agree with you on time at actually liked that piece although I did miss the early works well but I mean. Hey they're gonNA pop up again in other films other shows we talking about difference between sort of found film and the stuff that McQueen's made himself interviewed him a couple of years ago. We're going to have a short clip couple of minutes of him talking about He. He was promoting a feature film when I spoke to Him. Obviously the very well known equally successful other sort of half of his career not that he sees it that way. This is Steve McQueen in conversation a couple of years ago when you started making films suddenly I suppose a lot of extra jobs. A lot of extra things go added onto making short films. Thomas Dane in a new gathered from my life. I'm art works and that's the difference. Did they feel different things when they're in cinemas they have a different audience expectation attached to them in London? Narrative was not because both narrative on ship for me. Either but I would describe as one. His poetry is perjury and the film's narrative the arm boosting things for both saying them differently. One is fragmented fractured concise as far as poachers concern and the Amazon. Novas novel survey the very different using the same devices but saying things differently. T's a different Paul. He'll brain than myself allies myself and I get on with things. You didn't do them or you get you get on with. It was true again. I think that's the most important thing might Miami working not my sort of strife. Only striving is all about the truth. That's my main sort of brain function. Not Sort of how. Wha what in fact all those how how who. Why won't that's my main brain function for me? It just about dealing with as a person living today so many things come at them. Come out your other as a black child. What happens often? The you become political innovatively age because you are Oscar Christians in very very early on how who want at the very earliest days because of the environment you're in so it brings things to surface is ready for people to have such an August career into related always regarded as separate fields as fine art. And filmmaking in you aware of reputation that you have is something that gives you gives you pleasure. Is it something that you ever think? I don't think about it because you're critic you think you say that and it's fine. It's good to hear but I don't if I'm not conscious of that I just do things because I'm an amateur and I mean that I'm a very happy British amateur because as far as if I become so called off big on professional then. I'm done having done that. Makes me learning to sort of explore? So I'm not tall conscious of that fact in in a way I mean it's nice when people get accolades for certain things then people's evolving? Oh well he's this. He's he's he or she is the other but regardless of that. Oh you don't get that. It doesn't really matter because you're on my journey on my path. I'm trying to sort of work things out through work. I mean tomorrow. No guess. Law designed immense collection. I don't know anyone should be able to do anything they want to try to. I've I've always just tried to to be truthful to why and that's it so if it's a appear like this well great but I'm not I'm not conscious of not believe don't focus on that it's about the work w k the work and the story fact so about the work you've seen the films you've seen the now where the men's collection that was me getting playfully slapped down by. Steve McQueen. Very well dressed. He's yeah he he's and he's really good interview he was he was on expensive. Format Day. He's good stuff. I wonder can you one last question both? Ben I feel I want. I wonder if Steve McQueen kind of an artist his hiding in plain sight. Sometimes we know very little about him. He's not an artist kind of on the scene like some are just this show kind of open offer give you the key to kind of lock in his head or does it need to. It is a very powerful expiration of part of Steve McQueen. I mean that's the brilliant thing you know. He's he's tight. Show offers glimpses of the the real greatness of this body of work. And you know I. It has now been thirty years worth of extraordinary. And you know. I think it's I think it is an essential show actually even spite what I just said about. Not Quite being a five-star show but I urge people. I think I like the fact that they were the that he's an enigma. Still as well and I think that is central to draw up to do this. Yeah Yeah with every interview everything you Kinda chip away at that. I mean it's John Lewis. I agree you know it's it's the word mid-career but you know he's got an awful lot of you know we hope many years ahead of him. I mean when he was when he was an official raw artist. He made a whole set of postage stamps. You know he's he's. He surprises you whenever he does something. That's really great. Which usually you think. Oh yes fits into his work. Who's GonNa do and I think this this is a fantastic so you know a gauntlet thrown down to wonder what he's GonNa be doing in the future but also really admire what he's done to date and if there's some great works missing well I think there's some great works to come so that would be. That's exciting isn't essential show. And he's a really one of our greatest artists. I think so vigorous. You both have mentioned that in in all sorts of ways in all sorts of answers but there is such kind of focus so you can tell from the interview that he gave you this then I mean. He does around the show he chooses. He shots really Catholic chooses the film stock to do exactly what that film should do. I mean he really knows. There's nothing left if it's left a chance it's because he it to be left to chance if a camera's trying to focus on on on a light on a light source in going backwards and forwards randomly..

"And they have a way to get out of it. And it's the death that their husbands left them with. Hey, their husbands all died. It's called a widow. So we all know that. Just call with that we cool, of course. Widows husbands died. Ironically, the only ones stopping you. And I thought I bought the the whole premise where like, you know, they're in a tough spot, and they're going to do all they can to get it wasn't like a male macho either it was done with a feminine touch. Even though is a male director who did it. And I think it is the year the woman, and I think that this has a giant bull's eye on it as far as like, hey, we can check this box by nominated for best picture. I could see getting a nomination for that picture. Yeah. I could see that. And it's Steve McQueen A. And you're right. However, here's some things that really don't work for me. Okay. Number one, the camera work as good as it was at times it was distracting, and it was indulgent often showy it was very showy and it. Distracted like me. Oh, look these two mirrors. If we sit them in this, and this seating different parts of the restaurant at a look they're staring each other distractive showing need for that. There's also it felt a lot like I didn't know is going in. But I assumed walking out that it was based on a book because there's a lot of license to a lot of things happened in movies that are based on books, and I have this thing where I don't think many movies that I like are actually come from books. Even though my favorite of all time, but books work on their own level. Do their own thing. There's a number of things that happened in this movie widows a'dog, happens a an architect boyfriend or client happens little things seem random, but they need to be in there for the story to work and that works fine in a book like long form hundred pages it works. But in a movie, it's like oh. Well, that's just kind of like how convenient right? I ain't walking out of this must be based in a book. Just by the sheer volume of characters, but it was not it's based on a mini series a British miniseries. It was released in nineteen Eighty-three that runs five hours long called widows and Steve mcqueen's British Miami born and raised and obviously it had an impact on them. And this is his his his his passion project. He's wanted to make this for a long time. Now, this is the most fun Steve mcqueen's ever had the same because I was gonna say he's never really had any fun on the big fun. Not that fun. But I like the characters I liked the female empowerment being it didn't feel like I a quick reboot. You know, very little of this felt bad or offensive to me. It was just like like all along. I think it's gonna be a serious versions of oceans eight. And I think that's probably the closest thing that it is. I'll put put right. It's a super dramatic oceans eight, but how much are we gonna talk about how we have to talk about some of the we have to talk about spoilers. Yeah. And I would also like to talk about the absurd audience. That was with that. Because I wanna hear I need need to clear up some plot points that I've been thinking about I'm like, wait, why did this happen? And why did this character this? All right. We'll do that with the patriot. And if your patron a thank you very much for.

I mean, or do you believe that this is just sort of what your predisposition is? I think listen life isn't always a book of chocolate, whatever, you know. I tend to sort of deal deal with the difficult thing to. I want that burden a want to grapple with it and other people in this look at comedy. Oh, look at things, and it's great fantastic.

"Ask is that all of your other foams, your credit as as either a or the writer, and my sense is that you are very involved every step of the way. So I just want does that mean that there was a Steve McQueen version of the script that existed along the way, I think, you know, the fact that ice came up the idea I found a script to get my wife. I says it all really I don't think any deep shore back with fast bender again working the sign with Brad Pitt also as a producer on a film with a bigger budget than either of the two prior. But for a lot of people the person who the actor who stole the show was a then virtual unknown name lupita young, oh who went onto win the best boarding actress, Oscar and became a movie star through that movie. Where did you discover her and what convinced you that? She was right for that part. I just thought she was absolutely amazing long long search for back character, and it was similar to sort of looking scholar. Oh HARA as opposed to because it was very difficult to that character. Middle of a sudden frenzy mazes amazing cost to the semi this. This this tape, and it was two women. She sent me to tapes up, and then one of them was lupita. And that was that was the know showed my wife show my daughter, and that was that was in was that shoot overall. I mean, I'm thinking about what lupita character alone indoors in that movie. It's pretty brutal and emotionally very rough. The whole storyline is is devastating. So I wonder though, for you guys is that the kind of thing while you were making it that you are able to sort of turn the emotions on and off like what happens when you say cut on twelve years, a slave. It's that simple. I think any movie it's just that movie. It's it's not to break out the biz and you going to be sensitive to that to that environment and respectful, and you know, it's something it's not so..

"People we come from about place. Yeah. I'm that's my own sets. Okay. The NC seventeen rating that that film gotten. Did you agree with that? And was it alternately helpful or hurtful to the movie and C seventeen. Even know what it was. It was rap group seriously. I had no idea what I meant. I mean. Yeah. I mean, I suppose it is an argument. Oh, happy. They got into cinemas. And the people could see it as I didn't really know the numbers that didn't really bother me. I now know it is the second largest grossing NC seventeen movie ever. Well, I don't know. What's the I know the first is it's show goes go. Let's double header, Mike. I just wanted to Multan contemporary story. Yeah. And six is a part of that. So, you know, the chimps full where they may even blindfolded. And again, this is what happens wasn't pornography now story about sexual addiction. So, you know, whatever works to numb to people. I mean when you in beings, and I think it's about autism are about to push those boundaries about telling stories that's what it's about. Otherwise, we might as well just sort of not doing anything. But my both right. Well that one I just the image. They're certain which is that. I'll never forget just the fast bender winding up with whatever. I don't know if you'd call it a dungeon, or you know, where with that one where threesome the threesome than her singing, New York, New York, there's a very powerful movie, but twelve slave I believe would not have existed at least as a Steve McQueen film if not for your life. Yes, he found the book to me. Why don't you look true stores? Yeah. Of course, both look. And she found she twelve is slave. Why do you think resonated with you and enough to wanna make it your next phone because it had all the elements that I was thinking about I had a loose ideal paper, and basically matched all of them and transcended, and I couldn't believe the hadn't heard of Muslim. If I couldn't believe never heard of before Amsterdam. And it's like, you know, you. You know, you think of sort of and Frank's diary, and it's visit similarity in a way a person to the trap to in one way shape for me other and swim. North wasn't a national sort of hero in America. For me was just completed in case somebody has not yet seen the film. I want to say this is the black man from the north who was deceived and sold into slavery in the south in mid nineteenth century, America. And then what happens after that? Who wrote the script for twelve years a slave? Is that fair question? Well, I think I think things happen in the process of sort of making scripts and is thing call WJ and on the WJ Joan believe wrote that script related leave it there. WJ?.

"From from what part of the world Grenada entering listen this, and how did you end up with the name? Steve mcqueen. I'm sure you get this probably everyday, but I'm curious loss Dame's McQueen, and I was born I sixty nine I imagine. It was the the year of bullet. My mother told me that the the nice skip including me, Steve. And Steve Steve's Steve, Steve, it's not Not an. an. So what sort of childhood, would you say you had was happy was it difficult. I know that one thing you told my colleague, Steven Galloway recently was that you always felt you underestimated. So I just wondered who was underestimating you and why? Fantastic yet. It was a wonderful job of tastic child into the great time. And again, we assume point we lived in inner cities, and my mother moved us to healing, which was fantastic swimming in the suburbs. So he came out of the cities area. And then we always talks and stuff and places to sort of play into base today dream, and you know, like, I left my, you know, my mother's house. My father's house in the morning came back in the afternoon and evening, rather. It was wonderful. That was a great job of the situation dyslexia. And again, it's one of those things where that any stage in my life wanted. No, people weren't depending on what kind of background you come from sort of how they pay attention to. And I think through who I was at the just to put me to one side rather than to find out what it was and help in a real way. So over the point I thought. Of myself as not being bright. But then I realized that some point just myself. I was so it's one of those things you know, that was the situation of children in London point. There was actually a people going around in the seventies about the western children. I think it was a late sixties seventies about them being intellectually sort of having the capacity as other children. This is true. This is actually true. Yes. It was true. And so therefore, you know, what you want us to the fight what kinds of nonsense stereotypes and about a supposed to being thrown on the scrapheap Assange through your journey, and your you realize what the situation is in use of overcoming. Let seems like the area at which you excel and certainly felt most passionate about as a kid would have been art added that I enter your life drug AFI history. Those are the three things Chanaka withdrawal and through. That sort of came a lot of other things like you odds and history and geography of goes together. So that was just a good. I mean that was a great way of getting into the subjects where you thinking in terms of art as a potential career path or was it surely a passion if anyone of autism corrected and then not know this. It was something that I want to sort of investigating and an experiment in not knowing where it would be me too. And it was a pure sort of curiosity in terms of visual arts or screen arts. I guess I remember when I first interview in two thousand eleven tied to shame. You were talking about the fact that there was great TV when you were growing up in England. And so that was your original kind of interest. But then I think there was a girlfriend the came along that made film more appealing to you as well. Yeah. I mean growing up in England to be on TV as well. Those those great television. I mean before you know, the the recent situation, which is not so great anymore. Great radio to educational programs. Documentaries. So it was very much about documentaries can sometimes be over the intellectual overly educational. But which was great because it Nathan if he didn't know what it was is that it was about you was held on. And that was great. And then I when I went to all school, go friend who was very much into cinema. And she took me to these reports resume as in London. You know, I saw all the classics on thirty five millimeter. I was obsessed. You know, I thought you know, cinemas what about the back row in kissing on the stuff, I would never going to a my own..
