Hello, and welcome to Film 2012. We're live. If you want to get in

:00:30.:00:33.

touch, the details are on the screen now. Coming up on tonight's

:00:33.:00:40.

show: Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock team

:00:40.:00:46.

up for the Oscar-nominated Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

:00:46.:00:51.

If things were easy to find... wouldn't be worth finding. Kristin

:00:51.:00:54.

Scott Thomas is the mysterious woman in The Fifth. What have you

:00:54.:00:58.

done with my daughter? And Ryan Reynolds takes on Denzel Washington

:00:58.:01:02.

in CIA thriller Safe House. You're responsible for your houseguests. I

:01:02.:01:08.

am your houseguest. First tonight, Extremely Loud and

:01:09.:01:14.

Incredibly Close, a post 9/11 drama based on the novel, starring Tom

:01:14.:01:19.

Hanks and Sandra Bullock. Hi. You have reached the Schell residence.

:01:19.:01:28.

Today is Tuesday, September 11th. My dad said the way I saw the world

:01:28.:01:33.

was a gift, that I was different than everyone else. A great game we

:01:33.:01:37.

played was reconnaissance expedition. He told me to bring

:01:37.:01:41.

back something from every decade in the 20th century. I found something

:01:41.:01:44.

from every decade. Already? LAUGHTER

:01:44.:01:50.

You rock. Listen. I am going to be home in 20

:01:50.:01:54.

minutes. No, you listen to me. I am going to be OK.

:01:55.:02:03.

They're trying to save themselves... I am on the 105th floor - TV:

:02:03.:02:07.

An American Airlines plane was hijacked. You listen to me and you

:02:07.:02:10.

come home. I am going to be fine. I'll come

:02:10.:02:16.

home in 20 minutes. Please just stay talking to me. The only anchor

:02:16.:02:19.

that this young boy had in his life was his family and most

:02:19.:02:23.

specifically his father. He finds this key that is at the mysterious

:02:23.:02:26.

bottom of a vase, and he's convinced it means something

:02:26.:02:31.

because this was the way of living his father had with him. The search

:02:31.:02:35.

for the sixth borough was the greatest expedition ever. There was

:02:35.:02:39.

always treasures to be found. There was always a trail to pursue. He

:02:39.:02:43.

just thinks this is an ongoing version of that. He must have

:02:43.:02:47.

wanted me to find something. clues. I think it's a way for the

:02:47.:02:50.

child to feel close to his father to go on this sort of huge

:02:50.:02:54.

undertaking that he does as a way of keeping him close, and in the

:02:54.:02:59.

course of keeping him close finds a way of actually living without him.

:02:59.:03:06.

He was in the building in 9/11. I'm trying to find a lock for this key

:03:06.:03:13.

that was in the envelope that once belonged to my father. I'm - I'm

:03:13.:03:17.

sorry. I don't know about the key or your father.

:03:17.:03:22.

It's never going to make sense because it doesn't! I think there

:03:22.:03:25.

is a tremendous amount of responsibility to New Yorkers to

:03:25.:03:30.

the people who lost family members and loved ones. It's a huge, huge

:03:30.:03:33.

responsibility that we needed every day to look at and pay respect to

:03:34.:03:37.

and be thoughtful enough, but not be afraid of talking about. What do

:03:37.:03:42.

you miss about him? I miss his voice telling me he loves me.

:03:42.:03:46.

told me, "I really love your mother. You're such a good girl." It is a

:03:46.:03:51.

gim about 9/11. I think that people will have to make their own choice

:03:51.:03:54.

about whether the time is right to listen to these stories for them.

:03:54.:03:59.

It was for me. Do you think we'll find the lock? I'm not so sure

:03:59.:04:01.

either. Dad said sometimes we have to face

:04:01.:04:06.

our fears. Danny, what did you think of the

:04:06.:04:11.

film? Well, hate is a strong word, an ugly emotion, but sometimes I

:04:11.:04:14.

think it's the only word that does the job. I will say I think there

:04:14.:04:20.

is any number of fine performances in this movie, probably the finest

:04:20.:04:23.

among them is Maximilian Von Heune. He doesn't say a word and walks

:04:23.:04:29.

away with the film. It's such a blessing in contrast to Oscar, the

:04:29.:04:32.

gratingly precocious young boy at the heart of the movie. I had a

:04:32.:04:39.

strange experience - when he comes on and he's this hyperbole bag of

:04:39.:04:44.

nerves - I think this is awful - he's a prepubescent type of me.

:04:44.:04:50.

It's awful in a way because he spends half the film not being able

:04:50.:04:58.

to speak to strangers, then the other half doing the opposite. You

:04:58.:05:02.

can't throttle him with your own hands. On the very rare occasion

:05:02.:05:10.

when he shuts up on screen, he's narrating the film on voice-over.

:05:10.:05:14.

It confirms my suspicion that Stephen Daldry wants to direct

:05:14.:05:19.

audio books. I think it has no soul, the film has no soul and I think I

:05:19.:05:23.

should stand up and boo frankly. Don't do that. Lots of critics have

:05:23.:05:29.

given this a kicking. Surprising. Even though it's nominated at the

:05:29.:05:32.

Oscars. People feel differently about it. Watching clips there, I

:05:32.:05:37.

know you're going to hate me for this - I felt totally caught up in

:05:37.:05:41.

it. I haven't read the book, and for me - and I know this sounds odd

:05:41.:05:45.

- it wasn't really a film about 9/11. It was a film about a child

:05:45.:05:50.

who loses, if you like, his favourite parent - not - favourite

:05:50.:05:53.

is the wrong word, but the parent he's closest to, and there is not a

:05:53.:05:57.

lot of Sandra Bullock, but when there is - and there is one scene -

:05:57.:06:02.

I can cry about it now - I mean, I apologise, it's incredibly moving,

:06:02.:06:07.

so I was caught up. I love Davis. I loved the way that New York is shot.

:06:07.:06:14.

I thought it was a different film from you. The way New York looks is

:06:14.:06:16.

incredibly. It looks cute and beautiful, and you know, winsome.

:06:16.:06:20.

That's all fine. I don't mind the fact it's mannically sentimental

:06:20.:06:25.

this movie. It really is, though. There are elderly dairy cows in

:06:25.:06:29.

Somerset who haven't been milked so aggressively as Stephen Baldwin. I

:06:29.:06:32.

am going to disagree with you about 9/11. Actually, I take your point,

:06:32.:06:37.

but it is a gim about 9/11 because if it wasn't, there wouldn't be

:06:37.:06:40.

constant references in the script. You wouldn't have Sandra Bullock

:06:40.:06:45.

staring out at the Twin Towers. In the midst of all of this kookry,

:06:45.:06:50.

that's raw lump, and I think if you're going to play that card, you

:06:50.:06:53.

have to have something genuine and heartfelt at the end of it. I don't

:06:53.:06:56.

think this movie does. Without that it's just buttons being pushed very

:06:56.:07:02.

cheaply. The movie Human Centipede Two was ban at the end of last year.

:07:02.:07:09.

One of the reasons for that is this director got a budge of characters

:07:09.:07:12.

together that were horrible to get a rise out of the audience. What

:07:12.:07:16.

Stephen Daldry has done is made that movie of high-end tasteful

:07:16.:07:21.

human drama. OK. What a comparison. No. I - you would not recommend it?

:07:21.:07:24.

Listen. What I would say - no, I wouldn't recommend it. I would

:07:24.:07:28.

recommend The Human Centipede Two to be honest. I think Stephen

:07:28.:07:32.

Daldry is lots of ways an incredible film-maker. He has a

:07:32.:07:36.

very good touch with actors. I just don't think what he's doing - I

:07:36.:07:39.

don't know. I think there are sometimes worse things than being

:07:39.:07:42.

badly made. I think this film is an example of one of those worse

:07:42.:07:47.

things, I am afraid to say. Good. Next... Move on. Safe House

:07:48.:07:53.

starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.

:07:53.:07:58.

He was one of the most brilliant CIA operatives we ever had - until

:07:58.:08:06.

he went rogue. Safe House is a classic CIA story to begin with.

:08:06.:08:12.

But further down, you slowly realise that every door you open up,

:08:12.:08:20.

there's a different outlook. heard a slot open up. One slot, 37

:08:20.:08:25.

applicants, every one with more experience than you. How am I

:08:25.:08:27.

supposed get more experience staring at four walls every day.

:08:27.:08:32.

There is a guy who starts out seeking truth in everything, and

:08:32.:08:35.

everything has its moral order. have a last-minute reservation.

:08:35.:08:41.

Denzel Washington's character is the polar opposite. He's the

:08:41.:08:46.

sociopathic ex-CIA agent that is sort after Hannibal Lechter. Oh, my

:08:46.:08:50.

God. That's Albert Frost. It's an interesting story of this more

:08:50.:08:59.

cynical man - killer - and this young, innocent, like, student.

:08:59.:09:04.

It's OK. I remember my first posting - Rio De Janeiro. I was

:09:04.:09:08.

like this - not one single visitor, but I remember rule number one -

:09:08.:09:14.

you're responsible for your houseguests. I am your houseguest.

:09:14.:09:21.

The clock is ticking. They gave you the keys. What do you do this time?

:09:21.:09:26.

Shut up. You want to be the guy that lost Tobin Frost? Three, two,

:09:26.:09:28.

one, go. SOUND OF GUNFIRE

:09:28.:09:32.

I don't like to do violence just because of violence. I want to do

:09:32.:09:35.

violence because it pushes the character in a certain direction.

:09:35.:09:43.

Action! In the trunk! I don't think we get in the card immediately -

:09:43.:09:48.

"Just drive fast! This is action!" Get in the car! There isn't a lot

:09:48.:09:54.

of that pretty Hollywood fighting, He fights to be really dirty...

:09:54.:10:00.

It's kind of gross and ugly - two men trying to kill each other, and

:10:00.:10:03.

both happen to be terrified. using whatever was at hand...

:10:03.:10:08.

Biting each other, kicking each other, trying to breaknecks - you

:10:08.:10:13.

know, comedy. LAUGHTER

:10:13.:10:17.

The Safe House has been compromised. It's under protocol. Protocol?

:10:17.:10:22.

There is no protocol for this! Ryan's character understands there

:10:22.:10:27.

is nobody he can trust. Who is after us and why? You have to

:10:27.:10:31.

consider why your safe house was under attack in the first place.

:10:31.:10:37.

That was safe location. And people who we thought were completely

:10:37.:10:40.

legit might have another face. Somebody already knew. You're not

:10:40.:10:45.

going to get in my head. I already am. It's a weird thing to mention

:10:45.:10:50.

but I have to - Ryan Reynolds - I can't get those Marks & Spencers

:10:50.:10:56.

ads out of my head. Fatal. Occasionally he goes like this - I

:10:56.:11:03.

think, shirt, �22... Where's Blue Harbour. There he is wearing a nice

:11:03.:11:06.

tie - especially the end shot - just put that out there! I have a

:11:06.:11:09.

soft spot for Denzel Washington. You might remember I was the only

:11:09.:11:15.

person who loved Unstoppable. I loved him in this. I loved the

:11:15.:11:19.

character of Tobin Frost. I could watch that a lot. This film is

:11:19.:11:23.

quite weird in the fact that it's interesting to know the

:11:23.:11:28.

cinematographer is the same guy who did Bourne. It's fast and exciting

:11:28.:11:33.

but a bit Bourne-light. It has - I counted them - nine endings, so

:11:33.:11:38.

when you go on a Friday night - I fully recommend it for a Friday

:11:38.:11:41.

night thriller or an action film, you'll go and see an end and get up

:11:41.:11:45.

and go - not bad. Don't do that. Stay in your seat because that's

:11:45.:11:49.

going to happen to you eight times. What did you think? As an action

:11:49.:11:54.

film it does exactly what it set out to do. You judge it by its

:11:54.:11:57.

action sequences. They're full of energy. You're right to talk about

:11:57.:12:00.

the Bourne comparison. It's the same cinematographer that did that.

:12:00.:12:05.

Everything here is kind of bleached out and ugly and grainy and has

:12:05.:12:10.

that incredible particular kind of hand held camera work you only get

:12:10.:12:14.

with incredibly experienced cameramen using very high-end

:12:14.:12:19.

cameras shaking them about, juggling and prezing the zoom

:12:19.:12:23.

button. The editing is the most insane thing I have seen in my life.

:12:23.:12:30.

You have 15 different things going on in a nanosecond so your eyes

:12:30.:12:35.

feel like they're going into a spasm. There is a man running for a

:12:35.:12:39.

bus, but for two hours. It's arduous and I would go as far as to

:12:39.:12:46.

say knackering. It's almost a new level of immersiveness in an action

:12:46.:12:51.

movie that you feel exhausted through. You feel like Denzel

:12:51.:12:54.

Washington has been stamping on your head the whole time. That's a

:12:54.:13:00.

sort of recommendation of sorts. You get a veer from - Vera

:13:00.:13:06.

Farmiga... Sam Sheppard and others drop in and out. I keep wondering

:13:06.:13:10.

what's happening to them while everything is going on - some sort

:13:10.:13:13.

of naked theatre? LAUGHTER

:13:13.:13:16.

You're right about Denzel Washington - it's hard role for him

:13:16.:13:19.

to play Tobin Frost. We have seen him play this before. It's a

:13:19.:13:24.

training type - he does it well. It's worth noting he's the producer.

:13:24.:13:34.

There is not one but two occasion in the script that there are random

:13:34.:13:40.

references to how well preserved he is, like Dorien Grey. The Ryan

:13:40.:13:43.

Reynolds part is harder to play. If you're playing a rookie, that's

:13:43.:13:47.

fine, but this character doesn't know which end of a gun to hold.

:13:47.:13:53.

Why are you in control of the safe house if you're such a scaredy cat?

:13:53.:13:56.

You see Denzel Washington going, I am going to get inside your head,

:13:56.:14:02.

and you're going, yeah, it's going to be pretty roomy! Make a weekend

:14:02.:14:07.

of it. So I would recommend it with reservation on a Friday night - in

:14:07.:14:12.

a roomy cinema. Now time for Top Five. Now it's time for Catherine

:14:12.:14:18.

Linklater's top chat-up lines. In real life everybody it has chat-

:14:18.:14:23.

up lines, but in this Top Five, they work like a charm - well,

:14:23.:14:27.

sometimes. At number five, Anchorman - for a real way with

:14:27.:14:34.

words, look no further than Steve Carel's Brick Tamland. Excuse me.

:14:34.:14:40.

Yes, what is it? I would like to extend to you an invitation to the

:14:40.:14:47.

Pants Party. Excuse me? The party - the - with the pants? The party

:14:47.:14:52.

with pants? Rick, are you saying there is a party in your pants and

:14:52.:14:56.

that I am invited? That's it. you're trying to laugh your lover

:14:56.:14:59.

into bed, you could certainly do a lot worse. OK. No, I don't want to

:14:59.:15:04.

go to a party in your pants. Very well.

:15:04.:15:08.

At number four, American Psycho - if you haven't got wit and wisdom

:15:08.:15:12.

on your side, why not dazzle your date with dialogue displaying your

:15:12.:15:19.

knowledge of fine dining, wines and culture. A truffle?

:15:19.:15:24.

I don't want you to get drunk, but that's a very fine chardonnay

:15:24.:15:31.

you're not drinking. # You know I love you but

:15:31.:15:36.

# I just no can't take this - # Do you like Phil Collins? I have

:15:36.:15:42.

been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album.

:15:42.:15:47.

if music be the food of love, get some Phil Collins on your stereo.

:15:47.:15:54.

At number three, American In Paris. In this golden era MGM musical,

:15:54.:15:58.

Gene Kelly delivers a killer line with slightly more literary

:15:58.:16:01.

associations as he tries to pick up the extraordinarily beautiful

:16:01.:16:04.

Leslie Carone. I don't like to talk about myself. Oh, you're going to

:16:04.:16:09.

have to get over that. Why? Well, with a body like you've got, people

:16:09.:16:13.

are going to want to know what's in the book. What does that mean?

:16:13.:16:17.

primarily it means that you're a very pretty girl. I am? Yes, you

:16:18.:16:24.

are. Kelly might not have been the handsomest star ever to grace the

:16:24.:16:28.

silver screen, but frankly, with lines like that and his legendary

:16:28.:16:32.

dancing skills, who needs handsome? At number two, American Pie.

:16:32.:16:36.

where's your date tonight? Chat-up lines in teen movies usually

:16:36.:16:40.

consist of horny boys trying to get it on with girls theirs own age

:16:40.:16:44.

with often limited success, but in this scene, the mother takes a leaf

:16:44.:16:50.

out of Mrs Robinson's book. I got some scotch. Single malt? Aged 18

:16:50.:16:59.

years, the way I like it. And at number one, The Big Sleep,

:16:59.:17:05.

in Ethan Hawke's 1946 classic in a sizzling hot conversation that sees

:17:05.:17:09.

Humphrey Bogart become perhaps the first man in history to get away

:17:09.:17:14.

with comparing no less a woman like Lauren Bacall to a horse.

:17:14.:17:18.

suggestions? I can't tell until I have seen you over a distance of

:17:18.:17:23.

ground. You've got a touch of class, but I don't know how far you can go.

:17:23.:17:27.

A lot depends on who is in the saddle. Go ahead. I like the way

:17:27.:17:33.

you work. In case you don't know it, you're doing all right. There is

:17:33.:17:38.

one thing I can't figure out... What makes me run? Uh-huh. I'll

:17:38.:17:44.

give you a hint. Sugar won't work. The lesson here is try walking up

:17:44.:17:47.

to a hotty in a bar and try to recognise them from the Grand

:17:47.:17:55.

National. Let us know how you get We have had a gazillion Tweets, my

:17:55.:17:58.

favourite, Stephen "I am your density - I mean your destiny -"

:17:58.:18:05.

Back to the Future. Of course. "You never close your eyes anymore when

:18:05.:18:12.

I kiss your lips" even though it was sung.

:18:12.:18:19.

Romantic. Next, Red Dog based on a novel, the story of one dog and the

:18:19.:18:25.

lives he touches. Why would anyone live in a town built out here?

:18:25.:18:35.
:18:35.:18:44.

know - money. What's that? What's The film is about this dog, really,

:18:44.:18:49.

that brought together a community. He was like that - a dog - for

:18:49.:18:54.

everyone. Come here, boy. It's about the birth of a community and

:18:54.:18:57.

about belonging somewhere, belonging to someone, even if that

:18:57.:19:03.

someone happens to be a dog. Yes, for everyone, but no-one in

:19:03.:19:12.

particular. I play Nancy Grey, who is a young woman who moves there

:19:12.:19:16.

kind of as an adventure, and she falls deeply, deeply in love not

:19:16.:19:26.
:19:26.:19:29.

just with Josh's character John, Red stock is a bit rough around the

:19:29.:19:34.

edges, he is a knotty dog, he pushes me off the seat and he barks

:19:34.:19:40.

at me, but in the story we all fall in love with him. Stop that and be

:19:40.:19:50.
:19:50.:20:00.

The same about Red Dog is he had the ability to find the party

:20:00.:20:10.
:20:10.:20:16.

wherever it was, whether it was 300 John is the same guy. He will go

:20:16.:20:24.

wherever things are happening and wherever things are going on.

:20:24.:20:29.

a big fan of Louis de Bernieres' work and when I heard he travelled

:20:29.:20:35.

to Australia and wrote a story based on this region, I decided

:20:35.:20:41.

they could not be a butter -- better opportunity to do a film.

:20:42.:20:51.
:20:52.:20:58.

The crew and cast is like a All the sad faces in the world will

:20:58.:21:05.

not work, so you can stop. That is the truth. A last thing you want to

:21:05.:21:11.

do doing an Australian film is to grab that cultural stereotypes. Red

:21:11.:21:17.

stop pretty much does that for you. It is set in the 70s in the outback

time drinking beer and they follow in love with a dog and it is

:21:26.:21:31.

essentially the story. It is incredibly simple. It is sweet-

:21:31.:21:37.

natured, it is filled with nostalgia. It is someone else's

:21:37.:21:42.

nostalgia. Australia's nostalgia, so I do not know what it will mean

:21:42.:21:48.

for a British audience. In Australia it has been a vast hit.

:21:48.:21:54.

Box office records smashed, it comes recommended by the whole of

:21:54.:22:00.

Australia. Does that at any ice for you? It is not our story, so I feel

:22:00.:22:06.

like I do not own it, I am just watching it. The so many people

:22:06.:22:13.

said, wait until you see that one. I do not know what to say. It is

:22:13.:22:18.

strange in it starts with a boy driving a truck who goes into a bar

:22:18.:22:23.

and strings a beer. And somebody says let me tell you the story

about a red stock. Two hours later he is going, OK. Did you ever see

:22:31.:22:40.

the smelly cat? It rings a bell. is not dissimilar. There is a lot

:22:40.:22:46.

of, red stop, he wanders off and he looks a bit lost antique touches

:22:46.:22:52.

everybody's lives. I do not know what to say. I really like the dog.

:22:52.:23:00.

It is a very unique spell in cinema history for dogged performances. I

:23:00.:23:06.

would not say he is top dog, but he is up there. He is soulful without

:23:06.:23:11.

being too hard. There is a section when the dog goes off and spend

:23:11.:23:15.

some time in the outback on his own. There is something quite pure and

:23:15.:23:23.

sweet about it. You go back to the macho but -- guys, talking about,

:23:23.:23:33.
:23:33.:23:34.

he was looking for a jaunt. But is quite weird. Next, Cabaret, which

:23:34.:23:39.

was originally released 40 years ago. We look back at its enduring

:23:39.:23:49.
:23:49.:23:52.

legacy. Bienvenue, welcome. Bob Fosse's Cabaret 40 years old and I

:23:52.:23:56.

think the great movie musical. It is set in a down at heel nightclub

:23:56.:24:02.

in Berlin just before the Second World War for of job pouts and

:24:02.:24:06.

transvestites with nicotine-stained teeth and they sing about Nazis and

:24:06.:24:12.

gossip about syphilis. # She was not what you would call a flashing

:24:13.:24:18.

flour, as a matter of fact she was rented by the hour...

:24:18.:24:22.

It won eight Oscars and made pots of money and people have sex ever

:24:22.:24:32.

since it was the last, great film musical. # Come to the Cabaret. #.

:24:32.:24:37.

I think he learnt a great deal by the failure of Sweet Charity. It

:24:37.:24:42.

almost bankrupted Universal Studios. Three years later he is making

:24:42.:24:52.
:24:52.:24:53.

cabarets. He knows what does not work on screen. The last big Nazi

:24:53.:24:58.

musical was the sound of music and it felt right in the 1970s to be

:24:58.:25:03.

dealing with a musical that was tackling such big issues like

:25:03.:25:08.

bisexuality, abortion, cross- dressing. By the time Cabaret came

:25:08.:25:13.

along we were in the world of Easy Rider, grown-up cinema had finally

:25:13.:25:23.
:25:23.:25:24.

arrived. # Money makes the world go round, the world go round... In the

:25:24.:25:29.

opening number there is the ambition and the way he restrains

:25:29.:25:34.

himself. This is one of the great choreographers of all time in this

:25:34.:25:40.

claustrophobic club. You can feel this energy bursting. Three-

:25:40.:25:46.

quarters of the way down there is a massive wide shot. The lights come

:25:46.:25:51.

up and there are high kicks. It says, I'm really know what I am

:25:51.:26:01.
:26:01.:26:06.

doing. Then it is back to the Cabaret it turned the conventions

:26:06.:26:13.

of movie musicals inside out. There are no performers % into song on

:26:13.:26:19.

the side of a mountain or on the back of a cart. Most of the songs

:26:19.:26:27.

take place on stage in a nightclub. No pretence, no false reality.

:26:27.:26:33.

big trick is in fact the movie is not a musical, in fact the songs

:26:33.:26:39.

are done because she is a sinner in a club. They burst into song for a

:26:39.:26:46.

reason. When is a musical not a musical? When it is Cabaret.

:26:46.:26:53.

some time afterwards Cabaret made musicals for spectacle. --

:26:53.:26:58.

respectable. What is different about it as is the songs are about

:26:59.:27:04.

sex, not about love. That is what movies used to trade in all the

:27:04.:27:14.
:27:14.:27:16.

time. I think this really is the last great hurry of the musical.

:27:16.:27:22.

Nothing much happens for almost 30 years. You get Greece, a big box-

:27:22.:27:28.

office success, and it is not until Chicago wins best picture in 2002

:27:28.:27:33.

that anyone thinks about musicals. It opened the floodgates for

:27:34.:27:37.

forcing movie-makers to think about the many ways music could be

:27:37.:27:47.
:27:47.:27:48.

brought into films. Looking at as low a man as Milan Rouge, it is

:27:48.:27:55.

obvious there is a man who loves Cabaret. I wish they had taken the

:27:55.:28:05.

lessons about how to structure for an adult audience and a new world.

:28:05.:28:12.

If you do not learn a few lessons from Cabaret, you would be insane.

:28:12.:28:17.

Your movie would be doomed to disaster. In some ways, the songs

:28:17.:28:24.

are the most traditional songs in the world. There is Liza Minnelli

:28:24.:28:28.

dreaming of large, well everybody from Jeanette MacDonald through to

:28:28.:28:33.

Judy Garland has been doing that. If you watch a star is born and you

:28:34.:28:40.

see her singing of the man has got away, it is absolutely part of a

:28:40.:28:50.
:28:50.:28:51.

genre. It is a complete staple. # But fools will be fulls, and where

:28:51.:28:59.

has he gone to? What those songs enable performers and directors to

:28:59.:29:05.

do is to reach deep into the soul of that character. So the camera

:29:05.:29:10.

just sits on their face and allows you to experience everything they

:29:10.:29:16.

are expressing. It is cinema at its most direct. But the thing I love

:29:16.:29:21.

the most, Liza Minnelli as Sally Bowles in a cheap buyers hoping

:29:21.:29:25.

this time she will be lucky when deep inside she knows she is a

:29:26.:29:35.
:29:36.:29:39.

loser, singing to a room at full of smoke and a drunk guy in a dress. #

Maybe this time I will win... #. Next, as a Woman In The Fifth, a

along the way. Have you been to Minnesota? No. I have not been

anywhere for ages. Why is that? Because I like to travel in style

and the trouble with being a translator is I cannot afford it.

always love Kristin Scott Thomas, without doubt, especially when she

:31:21.:31:27.

is quite haughty and bilingual. Ethan Hawke's was good as well. I

:31:27.:31:33.

found it interesting, but a little too slight for me. I wanted a bit

:31:33.:31:39.

more. There are many different path to go down, but I do not want to be

:31:39.:31:45.

against it. I am going to echo welcome back for Pawel Pawlikowski.

:31:45.:31:50.

The films he made earlier in his career were fantastic. It is a

:31:50.:31:57.

proper, old school, art movie. It is understated and ambiguous. I can

:31:57.:32:00.

hear some people at home for picking their ears up and other

:32:00.:32:05.

people breaking out in a rash. You have this washed-up writer who

:32:05.:32:11.

wants to get back together with his estranged family. He ends up in a

:32:11.:32:16.

seedy boarding-house. There is a menacing neighbour next door. He

:32:16.:32:21.

has got a strange job as a nightwatchman. It should be a

:32:21.:32:26.

thriller, but it does not do what you expect it to do. Some people

:32:26.:32:31.

will find it frustrating. It is all about how much you enjoy the ride

:32:31.:32:38.

of mystery and suspense. I found it fun. Paris does not look like Paris.

:32:38.:32:43.

It is like the evil twin of Midnight in Paris. An American

:32:43.:32:46.

writer trying to produce a masterpiece just like his, but

:32:46.:32:53.

things take a much more sinister turn. If you think about last

:32:53.:33:00.

resort, it was Pawel Pawlikowski's last film. He makes the centre of

:33:00.:33:06.

Paris look like an out-of-season market. It is quite a feat. More or

:33:06.:33:14.

less recommended. What is your film of the week? Woman In The Fifth.

What Hebert you? Can I pick The Big Sleep? The Woman In The Fifth is on

comes from but after red carpet. There is flash photography. -- that

:33:46.:33:49.

after a red carpet. On any given day I'd changed. It goes that right

:33:49.:33:58.

now somebody told me about a silent movie called City, A girl. It is a

:33:58.:34:05.

beautiful story. It is a love story. It is it done in the simplest way

:34:05.:34:15.
:34:15.:34:21.

Everybody knows Sunrise and it is supposed to be his masterpiece, but

:34:21.:34:31.
:34:31.:34:36.

City Girl is better. Raging Bull is the one for me. Every part of that

:34:36.:34:41.

film, every element, the cinematographer, the sound, the

:34:41.:34:47.

performances, the script, is at top level. It is not an easy film to

:34:47.:34:53.

watch, but for me it is one of the best ones ever made. A you never

:34:53.:35:02.

got me down. Network is my favourite film of all time.

God's name, you people are the real thing, we are the illusion. Turn

Everything he wrote about came true, which I love. It was in 1976, taxi

in a theatre? The last one I tried was a film with's people who are

here tonight. The end of that film when he starts reciting the perm

opened the coffin? Put the lid on it? When he had his last breath?

:36:11.:36:19.

When he sat up and said something? When he last recognised you? When

:36:19.:36:28.

he last smiled? What about you? Warhorse. I cried at warhorse. I

the characters. Sir Lancelot, Sir Galahad, and Sir Robin, the not
