It's week 2 of our mystery series, and we're revisiting a directing team that we haven't discussed since way back in episode 1! The Coen Brothers's comic twist on the noir detective story, The Big Lebowski, is one of the most quotable films of all time and one of our most rewatched (even if Georgia wasn't convinced the first time she saw it). We discuss the abiding appeal of The Dude, whether this movie actually qualifies as a mystery, Philip Seymour Hoffman's glorious portrayal of the toady Brandt, connections with Road House, Sam Elliott's rambling narration, the joy of bowling, Roger Deakins, nihilists, and the ease of finding gently used home furnishings in Los Angeles alleyways.

In 2005, Dan Futterman wrote the screenplay that was directed by Bennett Miller and Philip Seymour Hoffman breathed life into Truman Capote 1924-1984. The film observes the time that Truman, Capote and Nelle Harper Lee played by Catherine Keener; are researching the Klutter killings in Kansas. Truman Capote forms a relationship with the killers but waits until they're dead to finish as well as publish his novel In Cold Blood which was the first of its kind; a true crime novel. It was turned into a film in 1967 but this film released in 2005 shows the idiosyncrasies as well as the guilt that Truman Capote felt from forming relationships with these killers that led to his novel. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/drzeusfilmpodcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/drzeusfilmpodcast/support

Moneyball: Taking Chances

It's hard not to be romantic about baseball. Just like it's hard not to be romantic about this movie. I feel like I say this a lot at the front of my podcasts, but hot damn, this is one of the greatest baseball movies – no, one of THE greatest movies ever made. This is one of those movies that just kind of snuck up out of nowhere and took all that watched it by complete surprise. Moneyball was nominated for best picture in 2012, and normally I wouldn't mention that, but this was in a small window of time post-LOTR where the nominations actually meant something and moviegoers actually knew what the movies were. (As a reference point, The King's Speech won the year before and it was up against the likes of 127 Hours, The Social Network, and Toy Story 3.) We'll see what our guest says today, but I don't really see this as a sports movie. It's instead a highly compelling thinking-man's drama. Or, taken even further, it's a business and money movie. But the title does sum up exactly what it is. It's about the dollar bills generated by MLB and how the finance side of it works. But it's also about taking chances and putting your neck on the line for something you believe in.  Brad Pitt's performance is nothing less than masterful, and to see a reigned in Jonah Hill is quite refreshing, yet he still shines as the comedic relief. This movie rests very easily in my top ten films of all time. Others may shift and come and go, but this one has a permanent spot. If you haven't seen 2011' Moneyball, get your ass into gear and treat yourself to one of the greatest dramas of your life.  Moneyball stars Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Robin Wright. Finally, a movie where I can pronounce all the names! It's based off the book by Michael Lewis, and written for the screen by Steven Zallian, Aaron Sorkin, and Stan Chervin. It's directed by Bennett Miller. On Rotten Tomatoes, Moneyball holds a 94% critics score, and an 86% audience score – one of the few times ever I find myself siding with the critics, yet I'm baffled why this isn't at least 98% on both fields.  Today I have with me an old, old, old friend of mine – and I don't mean age, because he's the same age as me, as we went to junior high and high school together – Brett Moore. Brett, it's been over 20 years since we've spoken or even seen each other in person, so I'm looking forward to catching up with you and swapping some memories as we discuss this flawless film. Share with us who you are, what you do for a living, and for fun. Questions About the Movie: The solution that Billy Beane implements seems so obvious in hindsight. Didn't anyone else see the importance of getting players on base before this was put into practice in 2002?  This movie is incredible in that it makes work meetings interesting. Beyond that, the whole movie feels unscripted and very real. Is that because of the writing by Aaron Sorkin, do you think, or because of the performances, particularly Brad Pitt's?  This isn't a sports movie - it's a business and economics movie. Are there any business movies that are as entertaining or well done?  Bill James is mentioned frequently in the movie as well as in the book. The movie says he was a security guard for a pork and beans factory. Can you tell us more about this man and how he really was the impetus of changing the game.  Questions for Application Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) says, "There is an epidemic failure within the game to understand what is really happening. And this leads people who run Major League Baseball teams to misjudge their players and mismanage their teams." What other institutions would you say have this same problem?  Billy was deeply haunted by his past. Is this what caused Billy to want the hard truth from Peter when he asked if he would have picked him for the draft? How can hearing the hard truth about ourselves really help us in the long run?  Is there anything you put your whole being into and failed? How did you come back from it? What's the best baseball stadium you've been to?  Follow Life Through the Big Screen on these following pages:InstagramFacebookTwitterThis episode was sponsored by Spur Creative

"The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1999) is one of those under-appreciated movies that M&A feel has so much going for it, it should be seen by everyone.

Spike Lee has spent most of his long career directing movies about racial strife, but 25th Hour isn't really about that. The terrorist attack on 9/11 wasn't even a year old when they were making this movie, so Lee instead chose to lace those complicated feelings throughout what is otherwise a quiet character study about one man's last day of freedom. Edward Norton is strong (as he always is) in the leading role as an intelligent drug dealer who made bad decisions and has to face the consequences, but the supporting cast is excellent too. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox and Anna Paquin all shine. It's Barry Pepper though who gets to play the character with the most layers. And the heartbreaking ending that evokes a certain 1980s Jesus movie is what makes 25th Hour so memorable. So know that it's all right (even if it probably isn't going to be all right) as the 458th Ellises' Analysis worries about a future in prison while enjoying one last day.

In 2012 Paul Thomas Anderson gave us all purpose with his psychological drama, The Master. The Master stars Joaquin Phoenix as Freddie Quell, a World War 2 veteran suffering severe trauma and addiction as he finds a charismatic cult leader and his wife, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams, who offer a life raft if he can get on board with their revolutionary and controversial methods. The Master is often considered to be PTA's finest film and secured 3 Oscar nods for acting but, does it hold up? Listen in as Jon, Colin, and Brent, debate the best ways to wash your brain and sub/dom dynamics in cults as we try to see if this truly is Anderson's master, or if it just spews nonsense over and over.

Hop on into the squad car and bear witness to one of the most notorious cops in cinematic history with Bad Lieutenant, Abel Ferrara's controversial 1992 masterpiece. But before we scrutinize this grisly mugshot of a movie, this week's Blue Plate Special find us fielding 2022 thoughts on Steven Spielberg's 1979 disaster 1941 (with us so far?); glancing into the hall of mirrors psychological gauntlet Synecdoche, New York from none other than Charlie Kaufman; and find a lot to love in Nope, Jordan Peele's latest blockbuster chiller. The time finally arrives to merge onto this episode's degenerative off-ramp of a movie, forcing us to confront an outright daring Harvey Keitel performance while grappling with what sets Ferrara and his direction apart within the crime genre, not to mention a discussion of content that warranted the film its infamous NC-17 rating. It goes without saying this episode isn't for the faint of heart but perhaps you'll agree that the unlikely redemption makes the brutalist filmmaking all the more rewarding.

The year is 2009 and the nominees are: 1. Melissa Leo - Frozen River 2. Anne Hathaway - Rachel Getting Married 3. Angelina Jolie - Changeling 4. Meryl Streep - Doubt 5. Kate Winslet - The Reader - In 2009 Kate Winslet FINALLY won her Oscar for The Reader (I say FINALLY because by the time she won she should have already had at least 1 Oscar (probably for Sense & Sensibility or The Tanic')). Originally Winslet wanted to go supporting for The Reader and lead for Revolutionary Road but the Academy insisted on doubling down (no nomination for Revolutionary Road) on The Reader in a lead category. This was one of my favourite years to discuss for this podcast, each performance was incredible in its own way. Anne Hathaway became a first time nominee in Rachel Getting Married playing a manic narcissist who insists on always being the centre of attention. Melissa Leo in Frozen River delivers a gritty performance of a woman who smuggles people across the Canadian border in order to make ends meat. Meryl Streep gives another knockout performance in Doubt as the head nun/principal of a catholic school who suspects the priest (Philip Seymour Hoffman) of molesting a student. Angelina Jolie received her first lead nomination in Changeling playing the real life Christine Collins whose child went missing and is replaced by an imposter child by the LAPD.
