Hellow and welcome to a new series of Film Twenty Twelve with me
Claudia Winkleman and Danny Leigh Hello. We're live. If you want to
get in touch, please tweet or email us the details are on the screen
now. Coming up on tonight's show: The con is on as Cameron Diaz and
Colin Firth team up for Gambit. Not just another love story. Michael
Haneke's Amour. I have a mad habit of under estimating you. One last
bite of the cherry as Breaking Dawn Part Two completes the Twilight
Saga. Plus, we give our verdict on Paul Thomas Anderson's, The Master.
We have our top five cult leaders. I hope one of them is me. First,
Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part Two, the final installment in the
Twilight Saga. Bella has started her new life as a vampire. She and
Edward are raising their young daughter, Renesmee, of course they
are. I have a mad habit of under estimating you. My time as a human
is over. I fever felt more alive. After 18 years of being utterly
ordinary, I found I can shine. begins as Bella opens her eyes for
the first time as a vampire. And, starts adapting to her new life.
was born to be a vampire. beautiful. We are the same
temperature now. She realises she is terrifyingly strong and fast and
has an unbelievable thirst for human blood as well, which is odd!
Then realises that she also has a child as well. She died and come
back and has Renesmee, her daughter. Kind of dealing with a child that
grows at a really, really aggressive rate and, kind of, the
fear and wonderment of that. I will never let anyone hurt you. Renesmee
is a special child. In the beginning of the story everybody is
worried about her because there has not... There is no-one like her.
She's a human/vampire mix. So, that confusion is very scary thing. They
are protective and don't want people knowing they are vampires.
Maintaining our secret has never been more imperative. It's silly.
They are secretive folk. They are pissed because they are worried
Renesmee will blow their cover. have to report the crime. The Coens
have done something terrible. think Renesmee is an immortal child.
She was born, not bittern, she grows every single day. What is it
They are coming for us. chieting thing is that it's
unbelievibly different. It's like making a completely new movie. The
same characters. A whole bunch of new ones. A huge amount of new
vampires. It feels like a pleatly different animal. When we were
filming the first movie we thought it was like a smaller budget movie,
hopefully for a few of those fan that is liked the books, but had no
idea it would be anywhere close to this. My first American movie. It's
just been crazy ride. I mean, it was lucky there were pretty good
people involved in it otherwise there would have been a lot of
rehab. How do you define a phenomenon? If you could define it,
if there was an equation we would do it every day. It was go time for
five years. It's insane. Now that it's over, it's a relief because
you are not worried about the story points any more. It's easy to walk
away from a character Wen when you have left them in a conclusive way.
-- when you have left them in a conclusive way. I'm not a Twilight
fan. What is nice with this last movie, the film is only one hour
and 55 minutes long, it does feel much, much, much longer. Much, much
longer. From a value-for-money perspective, the Twilight fans are
quids in here. Twilight is was and forever will be creepy, soapy
claptrap. Well, I love creepy soapy claptrap. That is why I said it.
That is my dream Dallas with blood. I liked the first one. I didn't
like the other two. I thought was pretty good. I think I'm a bit Live
and Let Live. I like everything. Which might be wrong. I like the
opening sequence. I'm mad for iceles. There is a lot less, sort
of, lip biting. They are parents, they are grown up. There is a good
battle scene. Hear me out. The end title phenomenonal They last for
four years. That is not long enough. Will you go. Anybody who has been
part of the series gets about a bow, I like. That They will sign 10x8
photographs at fan conventions. I will take a bow while I could. I
have been at the end credits since 2006. No. There are things wrong
with it. Alice, who can see in the future and he she says "they are
coming." they take an hour-and-a- half. They move fast. Not these.
The family live in a beautiful, I think, stylised modernesq
glasshouse. They create this house for Bella and Edward which is truly
weird and small and is like a tiny cottage full of niknacs. In the
screening I was at people laughed. I really liked it. I did. I want to
say a quick word about Kristen Stewart. People give her a hard
time. It would be nice for Twilight to have a better legacy than just
inspiring 50 Shades of Grey. It may be she has a proper career as an
actress. She does have talent. Here she would rather be doing the night
shift at a 24-hour garage. She is profpgsal and committed. You will
not get -- professional and committed. Will you not get
anything further out of me. Kristen Stewart talented girl. I wish she
made her breakthrough in a series that provided a better role model
for teenage girls than Bella Swan like Carrie. Next, Michael
Haneke's new film Amour the story of George and Anne, a loving couple
in their 80s, who have to come to terms with the effects of ageing
Apology for the loss of subtitles for 71 seconds
MUSIC STOPS. It's what it say it is, a story about love. A love story. A
love story that happens to be directed by Michael Haneke, this
giant among directors he means films with are fierce and
unflinching. It's tender and a tiny drop of what I think is approaching
sentimentality which is not a criticism. For Tim Henman that a
brave thing to do. A fine film. What did you think? Without being
over dramatic, my favourite film I have seen in the last five years.
That is not over dramatic in the slightest. You know how I get? I
should apologise to Charlie Line, I sat next to him. He said he had
seen it a couple of times before. He said "I'll see you on the other
side" where I had to be helped. We asked you to tweet, then I never
read them out. Nothing says tweet like Michael Haneke. He will be
pleased "it's a tender portrait of life, love and loss. It's a
masterclass." I think it's faultless. The act something
extraordinary. The details. And people will focus on the end of the
film, I even loved the beginning. I loved everything. The couple go to
a performance. You are seeing it from the stage. I could watch that
again and again much I thought it was beautiful. The thing about
Michael Haneke it's easy to get fixated with him. Amour wouldn't be
half the movie it is without the couple, you have Jean-Louis
Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva, what is great about them is Michael
Haneke poses this uncomfortable question in the middle of this film
which is - what happens to love when the person you love starts to
vanish. The actors have to answer that that on secret. I'm pleased
that this wonderful pair of French actors who have had amazing careers
are getting love now. Extraordinary moments. When he comes home and
tells her about the funeral of the friend they went to. Do you
remember he is talking about The Beatles and Yesterday, that is
brilliant. I love the whole cast. I love their daughter and her husband,
he is in the film for that. I feel they are well rounded. I know who
he is and who she is. I think the casting of Isbelle Huppert is very
good. The role of the daughter, she seems shallow and horrible in a way
that the elderly couple aren't. It feels like Michael Haneke is
letting everyone over the age of 70 off the hook. Normally everyone is
subject to his cruel gaze it's like here once you have your bus pass
you are OK. I'm not as sold on this as his other films. What I loved
about her. She had been ignored by them. Her -- their love was so
strong she felt isolated. You are making excuses for him. Can you
look at my face and, please, go and see this film. If you don't like it,
we will do something. I will send Danny around. No-one wants that.
Can log on to our website to find out where Amour will be showing.
Next, Colin Firth kd and Alan Rickman in the cones brothers crime
caper Gambit. -- Cameron Diaz. awe look at these. Now, he will
have his revenge. How would you you like to make �500,000? Yep.
boring, she is fun. We are both trapped in the world which is
oppressing. I have to wear a suit and curat -- curator to an art
election. I grow newspaper a small town in Texas. She is, basically,
you know, sort of wrangled in and then, sort of, offers offered an
opportunity she can't is a no to. These nice poom people want to take
a picture in the house. -- people want to take a picture in the house.
He has been seeking it with a passion. Haystacks. I have been a
huge fan of Blake Edwards. I guess I began to think back to the
original Pink Panther movies and work with Peter Sellers there was
something in the tone of those movies that I thought made sense
for this. That's marvellous. Tell me, PJ, what makes you think this
paint something worth �12 million? Well, Lionel, first of, it's oil.
Ain't it, Harry? The medium is oil. There is a step in this I really
feel like we found that balance. -- stuff. Michael has a great sense of
humour. He understood this material. And you don't have to say, "for an
American". I personally find comedy makes me more anxious than drama.
It's just what we find hard to manage. No problems then, sir?
Security is a little tighter. getting anything else are we?
It's a caper movie which is notoriously difficult to get right.
It has to be pointless. You have to just enjoy wasting your time with
them and in the case of Gambit, skippered by the Coen Brothers,
presumably by gunpoint because they forgot to do the jokes in. Half the
movie is Colin Firth losing his trousers. With the odd reference to
Alan Rickman's bollocks. It is that enough for you? Yes. I was a little
bit live and let live. I thought, in five weeks' time, I can't find a
Christmas tree, I will be livid. It's all right. It's got Colin
Firth and Cameron Diaz. There are bits that are funny. I laughed out
loud when I reminded myself of that moment. Maybe I'm not well. There
is a moment when he can't lift up the chairs. Look at my face. It was
funny. You're not well. If you have got a spare 10 a, it's a Wednesday
night, go and see it. There's no chemistry. Gambit is a remake of a
film up from 1966 with Michael Caine and Shirley Maclean and they
crackle. Colin Firth looks terrified of Cameron Diaz. There's
a pair of concierge at at the Savoy who still a whole movie. Every time
that the move the leaves them, you think, these guys are funny but no,
we have to look for Colin Firth's trousers again. I'm not sold.
are brilliant films out. Twilight. Quite. It's now time for the top
This is thrilling because Chris, you're in the studio. This was my
idea. Yes, physically, because now we can discuss with you and it
showed at two about, linked to The Master, you have top-five cult
leaders. Was this easy for you? was fairly difficult at first. We
don't agree on the order. I think a cult leader should have giant
snakes. Britney Spears. Sadly, she did not make the grade. He was
number five? A cult leader from Indiana Jones And the Temple of
Doom. He scared the living daylights out of me. Now I'm a
grown-up, he still does. Let's have I do remember that. He pulls his
heart out. Yes, and he's alive. believe Harrison Ford has
established a cult in the brass get based on that. You were seven when
you watch that. That was scary. you see your parents? I'm tempted
but I still find him it's scary. When you see him, do you want to
sleep and suck a blanket? Yes. Number four? It is Brad Pitt from
of fight Club. You have everything you want, he's charismatic, looks
fantastic, and he likes to punch people which is good. But, more
importantly, he has rules. You need rules and sometimes he was double
denim. Never forget that. Very good for a cult leader. Here is a clip.
Every week, Tiler reveals the rules that we decided. Gentlemen, welcome
to fight Club. The first rule of fight Club is you do not talk about
fight Club. The second rule of fight Club is, you do not talk
Which one is the Chanel advert? Along time after that. A good
choice. Twitter is very lopsided. People have gone for an obvious
choice. Somebody said your pagan dancing but are not sure if that is
a request? That's the wrap party. What is number three? This is
everybody's number one. It's not my number one. It is the wicker man.
Very good. He is a cult leader. is, and that's why I chose it.
idea there other cults ahead of this, I don't believe it. It's
terribly exciting. Yes, he's got a kilt, he's not afraid to burn up
non-believers. Christopher Lee at his finest. You're a dead to me.
2, there's going to be a hoo-ha about this. Yoga from Episode One
of the Phantom menace. They are a cult. I think there is a leader in
Star Wars but I don't think it's him. Let's remind ourselves of the
weirdness. Your thoughts dwell on your mother? I miss her. Afraid to
lose her, I think. What has that got to do with anything? Everything.
Fear is the path to the dockside. That leads to anger, hate,
suffering -- dark side. What I love it during that, Chris, you just
went, yeah? He talks absolute nonsense. People think it's
profoundly. I think there is a cult leader in Star Wars. We would all
followed R2D2. He is a quiet leader. If I wasn't contractually obliged
to stay here, I would walk out. is a quiet leader. He is a quiet
leader. We have now reached the point. We have no Satanists. I
didn't want it angry members of the satanist community tweeting in but
no Rosemary's Baby? It's a fine tradition, Chris. Let's talk about
number one. Brian Cowen from the Life of Brian. Can I just say, this
has got bad language in it, so if you are small, cover your ears.
Hale, Messiah! I am not the Messiah. I should know, I have followed a
few. I say you are. I am not the Messiah. I am not the Messiah.
Don't you understand? Honestly! Only the true Messiah denies his
divinity. What sort of chance does that give me? All right, I am of
the Messiah. He is the Messiah! thank off! -- lock off? It's a
mighty top five, isn't it? Have you enjoyed this? Yes. I will come back
in a few weeks' time. Very nice. Next, The Master, starring Joaquin
Phoenix as a damamged World War II vetern who falls under the
charismatic spell of cult leader Manner is not an animal. -- man. We
are not a part of the animal kingdom. We are far above that
crowd. We are spirits, not beasts. I have unlocked and discovered a
secret to living in these bodies that the owner. Good sides allies
for more than one opinion which is the basis of a cult. The only way
to defend his to attack. Please don't hurt him. He is dangerous.
is making this up as he goes along. I don't ever want to see you again.
The film business lives on hype. For all the hype, The Master is the
real deal. Paul Thomas Anderson has made films about extraordinary
characters. After a while, you feel like you met everybody you want to
meet but after WITH Paul Thomas Anderson's films. I think Joaquin
Phoenix's character is this extraordinary yet. You never quite
know what's coming next and I don't think that's ever been truer than
in the The Master for I thought it was absolutely phenomenal. Rarely
have I watched a film of that long and watch the credit and
immediately thought, is there any way we could watch this straight
away again. It is extraordinary. It is a weird week. Amour and The
Master are my favourite films for as long as I can remember. Joaquin
Phoenix is extraordinary in this. It's beautiful. The cinematographer.
Even if you are just watching him choose between pasta sauces, I mean,
he is amazing in it, isn't he? Joaquin Phoenix is stunning but so
is Amy Adams. She is surrounded by these gigantic performances and has
never dwarfed. The role she has, its pivotal, and she plays it
brilliantly. It reminds me of raging Bull, another gorgeous
looking film about a troubled character who can't control himself.
Take the fighting scenes out and it is episodic and sprawling. You
don't know what you're supposed to think at the end of it. 30 years
ago, everybody wondered whether Martin Scorsese had made a
masterpiece. Now there is no doubt. I don't know, I will put my money
on the The Master at this point also it is hypnotic and deserves
all the hype it's getting. Whatever you do, see it. I think it is Paul
Thomas Anderson's best film he has made so far. I am so aghast, I
can't speak. What is your film of the week? I would love it if you
said, Twilight. No, it is The Master. For me, you have to see
Amour and The Master. That's all for tonight. In next week's show
we'll be reviewing End of Watch, Nativity 2, The House I Live In,
and Silver Linings Playbook. Playing us out tonight is Gangster
Squad, starring Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn and Emma Stone. It's in
cinemas next January. Thank you and I need you to save her. I'm going
after Mickey Cohen. Why should he have so much when others have so
little? Take what you can when you can. In a month, we will have the
whole west coast are tied up in a nice ribbon. We are going to war.
