    This week is our South of France episode, which coincides with the Cannes Film Festival. Graydon Carter, a Co-Editor at Air Mail, tells us about the inspiration behind this special issue and takes us inside our party at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. Then we have two great stories about movies: Josh Karp has the scoop on a film Dame Helen Mirren called “an irresistible mix of art and genitals”—the 1979 erotic historical drama Caligula, which starred Mirren, Malcolm McDowell, more than a few PenthousePets, and Gore Vidal. (Talk about an orgy of talent … ) Then Sam Wasson has the story of the five-time Academy Award–winning director who was so angry that he could not get financing for his film that he literally threw his Oscars out the window in a fit of apocalyptic rage—and, in the process, created the template for a new kind of indie filmmaker. Can you guess who that is? Sam will reveal the answer. All this and more make this a show you won't want to miss.

    BrownTown shares space with the Hoodoise hosts Ricardo Gamboa and Charles Preston and Executive Director Mia Carbajal in the return of "Whiskey & Watching." BrownTown and the Hoodoise deconstruct the Oscar Best Picture "Everything Everywhere All At Once" (2022): When an interdimensional rupture unravels reality, a middle-aged Chinese immigrant must channel her newfound powers to fight bizarre and bewildering dangers from the multiverse as the fate of her family and the world hangs in the balance. From philosophical nodes on decision-making under capitalism to nihilism in modern activism, the squad brings in their perspectives on love, queerness, combatting patriarchy, growing up in immigrant families, and the opportunities for grounded representation of people of color in media. Through the heaviness of it all, Charles just encourages us to, "embrace the whimsical." The Hoodoisie (1, 2) is a block-optic, radically politicized, biweekly live news show based in a different gentrifying neighborhood every month. Ricardo and Charles invite artists, activists, comedians, saboteurs, political figures, culture makers, and musical guests to share their experiences, perspectives, and talents. The Hoodoisie gives "the chance for everyday people [particularly queer, working-class, and people of color] to engage in the discourse that shapes their lives that they're often excluded from.” Imagine if The Daily Show got hijacked by radical POC and queers and they brought along a DJ and a bar...that's the Hoodoisie. Come out for a conversation and follow Hoodoisie on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube!

    Tom Hanks has been a constant presence on the American movie screen for forty years. He has played a mermaid's boyfriend, an astronaut, a soldier on D Day, an F.B.I. agent, an AIDS patient, a castaway, and a strange, innocent character running across America—among dozens of other roles. Hanks won the Academy Award for Best Actor two years in a row. Now in his sixties, Hanks has added another line to his résumé: novelist. “The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece”—an overstuffed, often funny, work of fiction—captures what he's learned from forty years in the business. Hanks describes the process of moviemaking as equal parts chaos and monotony. “If anybody who we call a noncombatant, or a civilian, wants to visit the making of a motion picture, they will be bored out of their skull,” he tells David Remnick, insisting that it's impossible to know on set whether a production will be a masterpiece or a flop. “You do not know if it is going to work out. You can only have faith.”   Hanks spoke with Remnick onstage at Symphony Space as part of The New Yorker Live to kick off his book tour.

    The Wolf Of Wall StreetThe Wolf Of Wall Street Full Book Introduction This book is a memoir of a man who was once known as “The Wolf of Wall Street.” At one point, Jordan Belfort made a whopping $12 million in just three minutes. Forbes magazine called him “a twisted version of Robin Hood” in the stock market. He was later sentenced to prison for having swindled investors out of approximately $200 million. Through Belfort's revelation of his life's trajectory, we get a glimpse into the dazzling world of power, greed and excess. Author : Jordan BelfortJordan Belfort is a former stockbroker who built his career from nothing and became a multimillionaire by the age of 31. He once made a whopping $12 million in just three minutes. With his silver tongue and little conscience, he established himself as a prominent figure of Wall Street. He has been described as a passionate speaker, a cunning profit maker, and a helpless drug addict. His merciless business style earned him the title “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Overview | Chapter 1Hi, welcome to bookey. Today we will unlock the book The Wolf of Wall Street. It was 1998 in a luxury house on the coast of Long Island. The smell of cigarette smoke and alcohol hung over the place. Young men and women were dancing like there was no tomorrow. It was a lavish party. Suddenly, people heard the wail of a siren. Policemen entered the house, walked straight up to Jordan Belfort and handcuffed him. Belfort was once a prominent stockbroker of Wall Street, infamously known as what Forbes called the “twisted version of Robin Hood,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” within the Wall Street circle. Born and raised in an ordinary family, Belfort has no academic background in finance. However, he was able to establish himself in the capital-driven world within a very short time. Through despicable schemes, he was able to make $12 million effortlessly in just three minutes. By the age of 31, Belfort was already a multimillionaire. But at 36, he was arrested on federal fraud charges. How did Belfort accomplish this primitive capital accumulation within such a short time? And how did he end up in jail, redeem himself later, and even get his life story on the big screen? The Wolf of Wall Street is more than just an autobiography. Rather, it's an intriguing story of mindset transformation. Belfort was encouraged by a fellow prisoner to write this book in jail. While he was in jail reflecting on his past, the outside world was still perturbed by what he had done. Several publishers competed to get the rights to publish his book. Later, Hollywood showed interest in making this book into a movie. It was reported that Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio competed to play the role of Belfort in the film of the same name. Leonardo DiCaprio got the role in the end, and the film was a blockbuster, grossing several hundreds of millions of dollars. It was nominated for several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Picture, and was also selected as one of the top 10 Movies of the Year at the 14th AFI Awards. What makes the difference between a financial magnate and the average Joe investor? Are they born rich and tenacious? Are they always successful and do they never fail? We'll find out the answers by following the foot steps of Belfort, a Wall Street's legendary figure whose life was once defined by greed, sex, and drugs. We'll unlock this book in the following four parts. Part 1: The making of a business genius. Part 2: Founding his own firm and making a mint. Part 3: Fighting against the FBI. Part 4: Self-redemption.

    The most creative and productive careers often emerge at the intersections of disciplines.

Danielle Feinberg began her career at Pixar Animation Studios in February 1997, and since then, she has worked on 14 of Pixar's feature films. She cut her teeth on early films like A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc. and the Academy Award®-winning Finding Nemo and The Incredibles. Feinberg was the director of photography-lighting for the Academy Award®- winning features WALL•E, Brave, and Coco. Most recently she completed her work as the visual effects supervisor on Turning Red.In this interview, we discuss how creativity and career emerge at the intersections, why it's important to pursue awe in your life and work, and how Pixarnavigates the complexity of a long-arc project like a film.Watch Danielle's TED talk.Learn about the documentary about the making of Turning Red.Mentioned in this episode:Please support our sponsors:Indeed: Join more than 3 million businesses worldwide that use Indeed to hire great talent fast.

    KORESH: The True Story of David Koresh and the Tragedy at Waco is the first comprehensive account of David Koresh's life, his road to Waco, and the rise of government mistrust in America, from a master of narrative nonfiction. This spring marks the 30th anniversary of the siege at Waco. Stephan Talty's previous work includes The Black Hand, Agent Garbo, Empire of Blue Water and A Captain's Duty (the basis for the Academy Award-winning film Captain Phillips). Now, with his signature immersive storytelling, Talty pulls back the curtain on David Koresh-the man behind the myths, rumors, and conjecture that have shaped our understanding of the Branch Davidians. No other event in the last fifty years is shrouded in myth like the 1993 siege of the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas. Today, we remember this moment for the 76 people, including 20 children, who died in the fire; for its inspiration of the Oklahoma City bombing; and for the wave of anti-government militarism that followed. What we understand far less is what motivated the Davidians' enigmatic leader, David Koresh. Drawing on first-time, exclusive interviews with Koresh's family and survivors of the siege, bestselling author Talty paints a psychological portrait of this infamous icon of the 90s. Born Vernon Howell into the hyper-masculine world of central Texas in the 60s, Koresh experienced a childhood riven with abuse and isolation. He found a new version of himself in the halls of his local church, and love in the fundamentalist sect of the Branch Davidians. Later, with a new name and professed prophetic powers, Koresh ushered in a new era for the Davidians that prized his own sexual conquest as much as his followers' faith. As one survivor said, "What better way for a worthless child to feel worth than to become God?"

Instead, she wound up running a high-stakes poker game where hundreds of millions of dollars would change hands in a night.  Molly made a lot of money. Celebrities, mafias, and federal informants soon took an interest in her and her game.  Eventually, she lost everything and had no one to blame but herself.Her story later became the Academy Award nominated movie, Molly's Game, and the lessons she learned from her extraordinary journey have tremendous value for the rest of us.This is… A Bit of Optimism.For more on Molly and her work, check out:twitter.com/immollybloom

    The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (05/08/2023): 3:05pm- On Monday, President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg announced a proposal that would mandate airlines compensate passengers for delayed or cancelled flights—the compensation could include hotels, meals, and/or travel vouchers. 3:30pm- While announcing his administration's new policy proposal forcing airlines to compensate passengers for missed or cancelled flight, Biden blamed airlines for individuals being unable to spend time with their families over the holiday season. The Daily Wire's Ben Zeisloft notes, airlines “experienced holiday travel disruptions last year due to extreme winter weather conditions, staff shortages, and an outdated computer system.” You can read more here: https://www.dailywire.com/news/airlines-may-soon-be-on-the-hook-for-delayed-and-canceled-flights-transportation-dept-says 3:45pm- Guy Ciarrocchi—Real Clear Pennsylvania—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his latest editorial, “The Suburbs Are Pulling Us Apart.” Ciarrocchi writes. “Somewhere, over the last generation, the suburbs had become ground zero for every societal, cultural – and, ultimately, every political – problem in Pennsylvania and in our nation. Think of the battles of just the last few years. The biggest fights over Covid mandates took place in the suburbs – not in rural Pennsylvania, where most people went about their business. Not in Philadelphia, where many could walk to stores or order takeout or delivery, as they did frequently even before the lockdowns.” You can read the Ciarrocchi's full article here: https://www.realclearpennsylvania.com/articles/2023/05/01/the_suburbs_are_pulling_us_apart_896859.html 4:05pm- During ABC's This Week, George Stephanopoulos noted a “brutal” Washington Post/ABC News poll for President Joe Biden—indicating a struggling approval rating, concerns about his age, and a projected 2024 loss in a hypothetical rematch with former President Donald Trump. 4:20pm- According to a report from Politico, the Biden Admin is “bracing for impact” as the Justice Department determines whether or not to charge Hunter Biden. Jonathan Lemire writes, “[i]n conversations, Democrats and senior West Wing aides are downplaying the potential impact, arguing Hunter Biden was a factor in the 2020 election and voters elected his father anyway. They point out the president's top rival, Donald Trump, was just indicted himself. But people close to Biden still worry about the personal toll it will take on a father who has already felt anguish about a son's struggles amid a long history of family tragedy.” You can read Lemire's article here: https://www.politico.com/news/2023/05/06/bracing-for-impact-biden-world-preps-for-hunter-biden-fallout-00095636 4:30pm- Appearing on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) explained that he plans to hold a press conference on Wednesday where he will reveal bank records indicating that the Biden family may have taken money from foreign adversaries. 4:40pm- While appearing on PBS's Firing Line with Margaret Hoover, legendary actor Richard Dreyfuss was critical of the “diversity mandates” adopted by the Academy Awards. Under the new rules, films must meet certain diversity hiring quotas in order to be eligible for the Academy's “best picture” nomination. 4:50pm- During an interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle, President Joe Biden insisted that his son Hunter “has done nothing wrong”—suggesting that he does not believe the Justice Department will charge him with any crimes. 5:05pm- The Drive at 5: Dr. E.J. Antoni—Economist & Research Fellow at The Heritage Foundation—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg's announced proposal that would mandate airlines compensate passengers for delayed or cancelled flights—the compensation could include hotels, meals, and/or travel vouchers. But what is the economic impact of this new policy? How drastically could flight prices increase? 5:15pm- After weeks of media personalities labeling conservative reports that Democrats were seeking to ban gas stoves, Governor Kathy Hochul and state lawmakers made New York the first state to ban the installation of gas stoves in new construction projects. Now, the Biden Administration's Energy Department is passing efficiency regulations that could impact dishwashers. 5:25pm- The Mystery Movie Clip 5:35pm- Rich breaks his microphone during a YouTube livestream…AGAIN! 5:40pm- Speaking with Shannon Bream on Fox News, Texas Governor Greg Abbott stated that the crisis at the U.S. southern border was “caused solely by policies put into place by Joe Biden.” Meanwhile, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot condemned Abbott for busing migrants to sanctuary cities—though, she also stated that the federal government needed to do more to stifle illegal border crossings. 5:50pm- Matt's mustache and Henry's mullet make appearances on The Rich Zeoli Show YouTube livestream.

The Academy Award winner addresses the decline of civility in public discourse on both sides, including his own harsh rhetoric toward former President Trump.  Dreyfuss also voices concerns about new inclusion requirements for films to be eligible for the Best Picture Oscar and questions Hollywood's aversion to taking creative risks.

    Stephen Schwartz (stephenschwartz.com) was born in New York City on March 6, 1948. He studied piano and composition at the Juilliard School of Music while in high school and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 1968 with a B.F.A. in Drama. Upon coming back to live in New York City, he went to work as an A&R producer for RCA Records, but shortly thereafter began to work in the Broadway theatre. His first major credit was the title song for the play BUTTERFLIES ARE FREE; the song was eventually used in the movie version as well. In 1971, he wrote the music and new lyrics for GODSPELL, for which he won two Grammys among other awards. This was followed by the English texts, in collaboration with Leonard Bernstein, for Bernstein's MASS, which opened the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. The following year, he wrote the music and lyrics for PIPPIN, and two years later, THE MAGIC SHOW. At one point, GODSPELL, PIPPIN and THE MAGIC SHOW were all running on Broadway simultaneously. He next wrote the music and lyrics for THE BAKER'S WIFE, followed by a musical version of Studs Terkel's WORKING, to which he contributed four songs and which he also adapted and directed, winning a Drama Desk Award as best director. He also co-directed the television production, which was presented as part of the PBS “American Playhouse” series.

    Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), is never going to win the Senate spelling bee, but his conspiracy theories are ridiculous. He also gets a pass from narrative-driven left-wing media on his memberships in racist clubs. The Heritage Foundation's Diana Furchtgott-Roth, a very accomplished economist, was having none of it Wednesday. Hugh reviews the exchange and Rhode Island's alarming history of sending senators of limited intellectual grasp to The 100. Plus, Senators Dan Sullivan and Thom Tillis, and Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfus. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Zachary Heinzerling is an Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning director based in New York City. His latest docu-series entitled “Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult of Sarah Lawrence" about Larry Ray and his victims, premiered February 9th, 2023 on Hulu. The New York Times praised it as “a true-crime-coup,” The New Yorker called it "a remarkable work, advancing the prestige true-crime genre's slow but steady reorientation toward centering victims" In this fascinating look behind the scenes of Heinzerling's critically acclaimed series on the cult of Larry Ray, Zach emphasizes the important insights he learned from Rachel in the conversations he had with her throughout the filmmaking process. Together they discuss the ethics of documenting survivor stories and the importance of creating not only an accurate depiction of the tragic events but an honest narrative that teaches the audience about the red flags that we're missed and why they were so hard to recognize. Before You Go: Rachel offers her insights on the sensitive nature of interviewing survivors of cultic abuse or coercive control in media or counseling and offers advice on how to tell survivor-led stories ethically and with conscious intentionality.
