We also discuss Fargo, Zodiac, The Invitation, The Founder, the disenfranchisement of America and the real reason people are joining cults. And as we get caught in an elaborate Rube Goldberg plot, we also bring up... Frances McDormand, throwing dinner rolls, the American success story, flashing it's beautiful lights, to play the whale to his Ahab, the wife monologue, Grumpy Old Men, an otherworldliness, our sense of drama, Marilyn Manson, a day or so of his regular life, The Sopranos,matching your story to the appropriate format, maintaining their chapterness, he plays with a lot of sentiment in his movies... and yet there's always this fist that hits you right in the face, Saving Mr. Banks, David Lynch, The Wire, it's funny how it gets its hooks in you, the pure dark heart of capitalism, face to face and moment to moment, everytime I say that line I get goosebumps, Norm Gunderson, Partly Fiction, The Biograph and the Bluebird, it's a search not a question, The Path, it never loses its humanity as dark as it gets, it goes off the rails, John Lee Hancock, a really complicated acting problem, David Fincher, Bug, the interior journey, American Horror Story, the rhythm of the words that he's creating, there is no debate, The Man in the High Castle, a response to our echo chambers, there is no rod and staff, playing 50 in your mid-20's, Joel and Ethan Coen, how do you address those things in a way that can change minds, football vs. theater, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Michael Keaton, he does what most people want to do... and can't, that's his guiding principle, Philip Seymour Hoffman, I'd lost my taste for that individual sense of violence, the choice of living... in the valley of the shadow of death, Nick Offerman, nostalgic and creepy all at the same time, Twin Peaks and the Speedee System.
