Welcome to Film 2012 with me, Claudia Winkleman, and Danny Leigh.

:00:29.:00:34.

If you want to get in touch, a week or e-mail. Coming up on tonight's

:00:34.:00:43.

show, mind-games with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence in

:00:43.:00:50.

Silver Linings Playbook. You have a problem. David Tennant in Nativity

:00:50.:00:56.

2. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena are brothers in arms in End of

:00:56.:01:06.

Plus, documentary The House I Live In, and Catherine Bray is here with

:01:06.:01:13.

her top five top earrings. First of all, End of Watch. Jake Gyllenhaal

:01:13.:01:23.
:01:23.:01:25.

and Michael Pena start in that the David Ayer film. This is my partner.

:01:25.:01:29.

End of Watch is the closest thing you can get to being in a cop car

:01:29.:01:34.

with two police officers, the closest you can get to being in a

:01:34.:01:39.

relationship of two partners who truly love each other. First they

:01:39.:01:47.

his dinner, and a respectful kiss, then uncomfortable silences when I

:01:47.:01:53.

discuss anything of Merit. Then it is on to the next one. This world

:01:53.:01:59.

they live in is terrifying, the deep love they have for each other

:01:59.:02:02.

that happens to be threatened on a minute-by-minute basis on their job.

:02:02.:02:09.

The combination of those two is End of Watch. We call on the streets of

:02:09.:02:17.

South Central, we are good policeman, we are thrill-seekers.

:02:17.:02:26.

We discover a cartel, we go up against those guys. They're not

:02:26.:02:36.
:02:36.:02:38.

pushovers. We are shooting our way out of here. It is a cross between

:02:38.:02:42.

found footage and traditional coverage, whatever works best, had

:02:42.:02:49.

the audience inside the movie. put them through an incredible mind

:02:49.:02:56.

of tactical training, riding along with different policemen, see how

:02:56.:03:00.

they work, how different departments work. Somehow, through

:03:00.:03:05.

the process of the training and some very real danger they face

:03:05.:03:14.

together, the next thing I knew, these guys were so bonded. For the

:03:14.:03:22.

first two months, it was not working. I was annoyed. We grew up

:03:23.:03:32.

differently. We both have egos or other things. We did lots of

:03:32.:03:35.

tactical training, hanging out with cops. We saw how they got on,

:03:35.:03:40.

because they have to get on. It gave us our understanding that we

:03:40.:03:50.

need to do the same. Good evening sir. Why did you get nervous? You

:03:50.:03:56.

want him. I'm not gay but I would go down on him. Sometimes I do not

:03:56.:04:00.

know when you kidding, and I need to know when you kidding. I'm not

:04:00.:04:07.

kidding. We saw this together and have not discussed it since. It is

:04:07.:04:15.

funny, it is deeply old-fashioned, it is like John Wayne. What I think

:04:15.:04:23.

it's fantastic about it, the sheer electricity it has. The energy.

:04:23.:04:27.

Michael Pena and Jake Gyllenhaal, you have a double-act, bickering

:04:27.:04:31.

double-act. You know deep down they would take a bullet for each other,

:04:31.:04:36.

a little light you and me. Everyone is going to be grumpy because

:04:36.:04:42.

everyone like this film except me. I thought it was full of cliches. I

:04:42.:04:46.

like when they are in the car, but I think the footage when they're

:04:46.:04:50.

filming themselves is annoying. At one point I laughed when there are

:04:50.:04:58.

three people with machine guns. The end of it, it is ridiculous. Can I

:04:58.:05:03.

just go straight to Twitter. Don't be livid. You are calling in

:05:03.:05:10.

Twitter to balance it. I need help in this, because I always say to

:05:10.:05:15.

get in touch. This person says, I do not get a lot for this film,

:05:15.:05:24.

terrible drama. Too much Hollywood for found footage. Another person

:05:24.:05:29.

said they loved it. Another person says it is one of the best movies I

:05:29.:05:36.

have seen, very moving. What have I missed? The relationship green

:05:36.:05:41.

Michael Pena and Jake Gyllenhaal. That sort of chemistry, we look at

:05:41.:05:45.

Ron cons every week with no chemistry. -- romantic comedies. It

:05:45.:05:50.

is not always that easy. I am tempted to just flick your ears and

:05:50.:05:54.

say you should be admitting you're wrong, but I think the found

:05:54.:06:00.

footage does not add very much. The script gets cluttered up with Jake

:06:00.:06:02.

Gyllenhaal having to constantly explain why he's putting down a

:06:02.:06:06.

video camera to make an arrest. That is a problem with found

:06:06.:06:13.

British generally. It screws up the script. But there is something very

:06:13.:06:20.

slick and thrilling about the film making. It gets your hands around

:06:20.:06:24.

its throat. That is a good thing. Michael Pena has been very good in

:06:24.:06:28.

some bad films for many years, so this is a genuine breakthrough

:06:29.:06:33.

performance. Let's not be dismissive and sniffy about it.

:06:33.:06:37.

was the best thing in it. Jake Gyllenhaal not being able to find a

:06:37.:06:45.

girlfriend, really? It is not a documentary. I'm always intrigued

:06:45.:06:50.

when you don't like a film. I don't like it. You're not liking the

:06:50.:06:56.

wrong film. I am going to press you in a minute because I don't like

:06:56.:07:03.

something else. Next, Silver Linings Playbook, David O Russell's

:07:03.:07:13.
:07:13.:07:16.

What is this? He said yes. What did the doctors say? Can I do an

:07:16.:07:20.

interview for a school project on mental illness? I feel motivated,

:07:20.:07:29.

not angry. You are rooting for this Hemingway guy to survive the war.

:07:29.:07:36.

It is 4am. I cannot apologise. Ernest Hemingway is to blame.

:07:36.:07:44.

10 call-offs up and apologise. -- haven't telephone. Tiffany and

:07:44.:07:54.
:07:54.:07:56.

Tommy. What happened to Tommy? died. Tommy died. I used to be a

:07:56.:08:02.

lithium. I would take a lot of it. I'm tired and I want to go home.

:08:02.:08:08.

Are you going to walk me home? have poor social skills. You say

:08:08.:08:11.

more inappropriate things than appropriate things. She is crazy,

:08:11.:08:19.

she knew where I live and followed me. You're crazy. Do you want to

:08:19.:08:26.

have dinner here? Pick me up at 7:30pm. How is your job? I just got

:08:26.:08:33.

fired. I had sex with everyone in the office. Everybody? I was very

:08:33.:08:40.

depressed. We don't have to talk about it. How many were there? I go

:08:40.:08:50.
:08:50.:08:50.

to a lot of therapy, and I messed up? Idea dance partner. I'm not

:08:50.:08:59.

going to dance with you. Did you write about me? She is my friend. I

:08:59.:09:06.

am happy. He is happy. I don't know what Jennifer Lawrence got paid to

:09:06.:09:11.

star in this, but whatever it was it is not enough. Whatever charm

:09:11.:09:15.

this has is solely down to her. When the awards come, she will get

:09:15.:09:21.

lots of them, rightly so. Without her, this film is in sincere,

:09:21.:09:27.

tasteless, it will win Oscars, because it has been made for that,

:09:27.:09:33.

I could be wrong, but I have seen muggings at cash points less

:09:33.:09:39.

cynical than this bill. I sense a falling out. I can even make eye

:09:39.:09:44.

contact with you. And are no words to describe how much I love this

:09:44.:09:50.

film. This is the film. I watched it, I thought it was sincere,

:09:50.:09:55.

Bradley Cooper, who live always ignored, I don't like good-looking

:09:55.:09:58.

boys, he is brilliant in it. Jennifer Lawrence is brilliant,

:09:58.:10:04.

Robert De Niro is brilliant, it is a fabulous, gripping, funny and

:10:04.:10:09.

romantic film. If you see this film, you will come out weeping, you will

:10:09.:10:16.

telephone people you love and want to go and see it again. Someone has

:10:16.:10:22.

tweeted me asking if I liked it. I didn't love it, I adored it. Deal

:10:22.:10:30.

with that. I'm a bit nervous. this film at the Toronto Film

:10:30.:10:34.

Festival, and on either side of me was professional film critics

:10:34.:10:37.

hopping up and down with glee during this film, like six year-old

:10:37.:10:45.

having too much sweeties. This film cannot tell the difference between

:10:45.:10:55.
:10:55.:10:59.

someone been by polo and quirky. That's a real problem. -- bipolar.

:10:59.:11:06.

Cheese. It is like a Hollywood executive's idea of a Mike Leigh

:11:07.:11:14.

film. I have no problem with that. I have a terrible feeling this will

:11:14.:11:18.

sweep the board at the Oscars, there will be pictures of Bradley

:11:18.:11:23.

Cooper waving a statuette. All the scenes with him running along, he

:11:23.:11:29.

was waving a model Oscar. If that happens I will weep with happiness.

:11:29.:11:34.

I will feel like I'm his mother. I will write to him, I'll say, Greg

:11:34.:11:41.

ready, I love it. Silver Linings Playbook is in the cinema as from

:11:41.:11:51.
:11:51.:12:01.

today. Now it is time for this An enormous welcome to Catherine

:12:01.:12:10.

Bray. Last week, we love that. have not heard my list yet, and

:12:10.:12:17.

you're criticising me. Two bits of housekeeping. We are doing top-five

:12:17.:12:20.

pop duos, and I have to warn you there is some strong language in

:12:20.:12:30.

the East. -- cop duos. When you heard the category, did you think

:12:30.:12:37.

you had a list already? Yes, absolutely, but more fool me. I

:12:37.:12:45.

thought it would be 1980s films, it would be easy, when I went back to

:12:45.:12:50.

a lot of them, they are remembered fondly but, I don't know by you,

:12:50.:12:59.

they have got a bit tired. Lethal weapon, except for her. -- Other

:12:59.:13:09.
:13:09.:13:10.

films. There will be some angry tweets. I will have pursed lips.

:13:10.:13:19.

What have I done? Number five. is really easy to go for the

:13:19.:13:25.

classics, critically respectable. This is a very recent film and I

:13:25.:13:30.

think I could rival your passion for Silver Linings Playbook. It is

:13:30.:13:39.

a brilliant recent comedy, we have the slightly dumb cop, the brighter

:13:39.:13:48.

chap, and it is Jonah Hill & Channing Tatum as Schmidt & Jenko

:13:48.:13:58.
:13:58.:14:35.

Funny, and you chose it because everyone loves it. Everyone loves a

:14:35.:14:40.

montage. It is not the funniest clip we could have picked. After

:14:40.:14:46.

that led pence there is a very big swear word. You need a training

:14:46.:14:56.
:14:56.:15:05.

montage in a cop film. It is funny. We collectively owe an apology for

:15:05.:15:15.
:15:15.:15:17.

for Channing Tatum. Your next one? This is a film,

:15:17.:15:27.
:15:27.:15:28.

having gone from the bromanc of 21 Jump Street, this cop duo don't get

:15:29.:15:35.

on. They come towards the end. It is Brad Pitt, it is not Brad Pitt,

:15:35.:15:42.

it is Guy Pearce and Russell Crowe. Here is a clip.

:15:42.:15:46.

I realise this is difficult. Give your career a rest. Leave her

:15:46.:15:55.

alone. A naked guy with a gun, you expect anyone to believe that?

:15:55.:16:03.

away from me. How will it look in your report. You don't know the

:16:03.:16:13.
:16:13.:16:26.

meaning of the word you ignorant What's your next one? It is indeed

:16:26.:16:36.
:16:36.:16:36.

Brad Pitt and Morgan free man, -- Freeman. Here a clip.

:16:36.:16:46.
:16:46.:16:53.

Get out of here. Get out of here. Lock you. I got your picture.

:16:53.:17:03.
:17:03.:17:07.

you. How did they get here so locking quick? They piss me off.

:17:07.:17:11.

is impressive to see a man feeding off his emotions.

:17:11.:17:18.

Brad Pitt in every top five. Can we go to tweets? Are people happy with

:17:18.:17:24.

that? There is a ground swell in favour of Lethal Weapon. I have a

:17:24.:17:29.

feeling the tweets are coming from Mel Gibson. He doesn't like either

:17:29.:17:38.

of ours. I was watching the Seven Blu-ray and David Finch says he

:17:38.:17:48.
:17:48.:17:50.

asked his cinema to go grafr to move away from Lethal Weapon.

:17:50.:17:56.

Gibson is tweeting again! You are included as well? What's your

:17:56.:18:01.

number two? We have a lot of beefy, shouty men. But it is, you know, it

:18:01.:18:05.

is the ladies turn and it is a little bit more calm. It is

:18:05.:18:08.

forensic. You condition be running around -- you can't be running

:18:08.:18:18.

around and shooting guns, you have got to get your Sherlock on and do

:18:18.:18:25.

detective work. It is Fargo. Let's have a look. We have got a

:18:25.:18:31.

shooting. These folks drive by. There is a high-speed pursuit. It

:18:31.:18:37.

ends here and then this execution. Yeah.

:18:37.:18:45.

I would be surprised if our suspect was from Branard. I will tell you

:18:45.:18:49.

what, from his footprint, he looks like a big fella. You see something

:18:49.:18:59.
:18:59.:19:01.

down there, chief? No, I just think... Are you OK? Yeah, I'm fine.

:19:01.:19:05.

It is just morning sickness. That's a fine choice. Weirdly from

:19:05.:19:13.

that clip I know what I'm watching on Sunday night. Me too. A Rising

:19:13.:19:19.

Damp DVD. What's your number one? Well, I

:19:19.:19:24.

feel like my number one is my weesily attempt to get out of

:19:24.:19:30.

angering the people who wanted to see Bad Boys and Turner and Hooch.

:19:30.:19:36.

This is a tribute. In a way, they are all number one. Does that work?

:19:36.:19:39.

Yes! I can get away with that. So number

:19:39.:19:45.

one, we have a fantastic British comedy written on a lot of of

:19:45.:19:50.

American cop duos. It is hot fuss. -- it is Hot Fuzz.

:19:50.:20:00.
:20:00.:20:01.

Here a clip. You mothers.

:20:01.:20:07.

He has gone through there. Through the gardens? What's the

:20:07.:20:17.
:20:17.:20:26.

matter Danny, have you never taken I'm watching that one tomorrow.

:20:26.:20:32.

Brilliant, brilliant choices. Danny, what would you have liked to have

:20:32.:20:37.

been in there? How could you not have the French Connection? I am

:20:37.:20:44.

saving it for top car choices. is not cop duos in car chases.

:20:44.:20:54.
:20:54.:20:57.

I am not satisfied. Very good top five. Next this is it,

:20:57.:21:07.
:21:07.:21:13.

# Father Christmas and his little elf making stuff for you #

:21:13.:21:18.

It is a heart warming Christmas film, the sort of thing that

:21:18.:21:22.

Christmas films are dubbed heart warming fun for all the family, but

:21:22.:21:31.

it is and I thought well, this you know, I will give it a go.

:21:31.:21:36.

Nativity 2 is about an insane classroom assistant and a bunch of

:21:36.:21:41.

kids and new teacher who comes into the school and the classroom

:21:41.:21:46.

assistant takes them on an adventure to Wales.

:21:46.:21:51.

This was going to be the best Christmas ever.

:21:51.:21:57.

Are you all right? There is an outline, you know what

:21:57.:22:02.

each scene is and what the thrust of the store story will be, but

:22:02.:22:07.

beyond that you don't know where it is going to gopm I love Christmas.

:22:07.:22:11.

I am glad that we are here and that we have moved away. What was the

:22:11.:22:16.

head mistress like? She seemed good. She seemed as if she knew what she

:22:16.:22:19.

was doing. I was terrified, not knowing what

:22:19.:22:23.

the plot is and what she wants and you relax. If you know your

:22:23.:22:28.

character and what you want from the scene, everything sort of comes

:22:28.:22:31.

out anyway. That's the trick in making a film

:22:31.:22:37.

like this why the kids are so good at is responding honestly and

:22:37.:22:45.

truthfully which children do automatically, grown-ups try to

:22:45.:22:50.

sensor everything before we say it. # I say no, no, no #

:22:50.:22:53.

There were days you thought this won't stick together to make a

:22:53.:22:59.

story, but that's what Debbie does. Looking back on the process, I

:22:59.:23:04.

think, "How did we end up with this lovely film?" I'm here for the long

:23:04.:23:09.

haul. I'm here to make these kids lives better.

:23:09.:23:12.

Audiences loved the first one. To have an audience that is ready and

:23:12.:23:16.

waiting for your work is a rarity, you know, not having to go out and

:23:16.:23:19.

fin an audience really, but to sort of have one waiting. It is just a

:23:19.:23:22.

privilege. It is very unashamed. It is proud

:23:22.:23:26.

of what it is and it does such a good job.

:23:26.:23:30.

I defy to you come out without a tear.

:23:30.:23:38.

# Now something that will really get you bopping #

:23:38.:23:45.

# Yes, we can keep on trying # Wonderful, well done.

:23:45.:23:50.

We will say film of the year and move on. Jessica Hynes is always

:23:50.:23:56.

excellent. She is excellent here. It is an ongoing travesty that

:23:56.:24:00.

British film hasn't found something more substantial for her to sink

:24:00.:24:05.

her teeth into. Jessica Hynes aside, this film is brutal. I am not sure

:24:05.:24:09.

we can talk about it as a film because it is half a panto and half

:24:09.:24:13.

a pitch for a West End musical which is I am sure what it is going

:24:13.:24:17.

to end up as. Some of the kids are very good and I would say on

:24:17.:24:21.

balance, professionally it is probably for them to do this than

:24:21.:24:24.

sweeping a chim thee! -- chimney!

:24:24.:24:30.

Oh my god. I can't speak! Well, I love, let me just say the

:24:30.:24:35.

acting is really... Do you love it? No, I don't love it. But I like

:24:35.:24:40.

everybody that's in it. They are all good, but the story is about an

:24:40.:24:46.

irresponsible teacher who and I am very old, I am 84, I mean I am! I

:24:46.:24:51.

know that. All I'm doing is watching a baby being stolen and

:24:51.:24:57.

kids being held by a rope down a cliff and I am too old and too

:24:57.:25:06.

boring and too tense to take such a thing. They can't go to Wales,

:25:06.:25:10.

maybe I am taking it far too literally and then all these kids

:25:10.:25:12.

have to watch somebody give birth to twins.

:25:12.:25:17.

Yeah. Is it bad that I say that? Mr Poppy

:25:17.:25:24.

is a figure from nightmares. This parker shrouded man child. No

:25:24.:25:28.

school in the country would let him within 50 yards of the gates let

:25:28.:25:37.

alone into a classroom. I still still prefer it to Silver

:25:37.:25:41.

Linings Playbook. Oh, you can't! By the way, I think

:25:41.:25:45.

if you are ten, you will love it. Or under ten... Ten or under ten.

:25:45.:25:54.

As I I just said I am 84. I think it is for for kids, don't even

:25:54.:25:59.

listen! Next, The House I Live In, a

:25:59.:26:01.

documentary which looks at America's 40 year war on drugs.

:26:01.:26:05.

have to understand the war on drugs has never been about drugs.

:26:05.:26:09.

America's public enemy number one is drug abuse. What will you do

:26:09.:26:19.
:26:19.:26:20.

when someone offers you drugs? We intend to end a drug menace and

:26:20.:26:26.

to elimb nat this dark -- eliminate this dark, evil enemy within.

:26:26.:26:32.

strikes and you are out. Right, from one end of the spectrum

:26:32.:26:37.

to the other? This looks at links in the chain from the use users and

:26:37.:26:41.

the dealers through to the politicians and the very big

:26:41.:26:44.

business that are prisons in America. It that sounds like the

:26:44.:26:49.

Wire, it may not surprise people, the creator of the Wire pops up

:26:49.:26:53.

here as the lead talking head to connect the dots and he is
