NOTHING. AND THEY SEE MARK RYELANCEnd
INN THIS SPIELBERG, WHAT A GREAT ACTOR, I WISH I COULD DO THAT
WELL, HE HAS DEDICATED 30, 40 YEARS, HE HAS DONE THAT PLAY
HUNDREDS OF TIME. AND HE’S DONE THAT WHOLE CANON HUNDREDS EVERY
TIMES. AND THAT IS MASTERY. AND THAT’S THE THING THAT AS I
GET OLDER, I GET MORE AND MORE INTERESTED IN WITH OUR YOUNG
AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS.>>Stephen: NOW YOU ARE IN A
BEAUTIFUL NEW FILM CALLED FIRS REFORMED WRITTEN AND DIRECT BY
PAUL SCHRAIDER, OF TAXI DRIVER, AMERICAN BULL, AMERICAN GIG LOW.>>Stephen: GREAT DIRECTOR. YOU PLAY A PASTOR WHO IS
TROUBLED BY HIS LIFE, HIS FAMILY, HI WORLD. TELL US WHAT THE FILM IS ABOUT.>>I THINK THE FILM, THIS SAY
GREAT WRITER FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DON’T– PAUL SCHRAID
CERTIFICATE A FIRST BALLOT HALL OF FAMER IN THE FILM BUSINESS
AND HE WROTE A BEAUTIFUL SCRIPT ABOUT A PRIEST WHO IS HAVING A
TERRIBLE MOMENT MAKING SENSE OUT OF OUR WORLD TODAY. HE’S LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP IN
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL STRUGGLES. IS HE LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP AS
A SPIRITUAL PERCHLT HE HAS LOST HIS SON. I’M COUNSELING IN THE MOVIE A
YOUNG MAN WHO IS– FEELS THE BURDENS OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO
THE ENVIRONMENT VERY DEEPLY AND MY CHARACTER IS A SINCERE
RELIGIOUS MAN AND HE REALLY TRIES TOES– TRIES TO GIVE HIM
GUIDANCE AND IT DOESN’T GO THE WAY HE WANTS IT TO I THINK THE
MF QUEE GIVES A BEAUTIFUL VOICE TO THE WAY A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE
FEELING.>>Stephen: WE HAVE A CLIP
HERE. I THINK ARE YOU IN A DINERROR
SOMETHING.>>WHAT HAPPENS, LIKE A LOT OF
CHURCHES RIGHT NOW, I’M A PASTOR AT A SMALL CHURCH THAT IS OWNED
AND OPERATED BY A LARGER MEGA CHURCH AND INSTEAD OF– CEDRIC
THE ENTERTAINER WHO IS AN AMAZES ACTOR PLAYS PIE BOSS BECAUSE HE
RUNS THE BIG CHURN AND I RUN THIS LITTLE ANCILLARY. THEY KIND OF CALL IT A TOURIST
CHURCH BECAUSE IT’S LEFT OVER AS A MUSEUM FROM THE UNDERGROUND
RAILROAD. THERE WERE A LOT OF
ABOLITIONISTS AS PART OF THIS PARISH DURING THAT MOMENT. AND BUT THE GUY WHO IS OUR
BIGGEST DONOR IS UPSET WITH SOME OF WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING
WITH– WITH MY WORK WORK THIS YOUNG MAN WHO HAS LOST HIS LIFE.>>JIM?>>WELL, GOD FORGIVE US FOR WHAT
WE ARE DOING FOR THIS CREATION. THAT IS WHAT MY SON ASKED ME
WHEN I VISITED HIM.>>THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF LOOSE
TALK ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE.>>THERE IS SCIENTIFIC
CONSENSUS, 97%.>>THE– SAYS NOTHING ALWAYS
SEEMS MORE INTELLIGENCE– INTELLIGENT, WHY
COULDN’T I JUST KEEP SILENT.>>ST A COMPLICATED SUBJECT.>>NOT REALLY.>>WHO BENEFITS?>>WHO PROFITS, THAT IS WHAT I
KEEP ASKING MYSELF, BESIDES THE BIB I WILL KALT CALL TO
STEWARTSHIP WHO JUST.>>CAN WE JUST AGREE TO KEEP
POLITICS OUT OF THE SERMON.>>IT’S FUNNY– IT’S A HARD
MOVIE TO GO ON KIND OF A LATE NIGHT TALK SHOAVMENT YOU WANT A
LITTLE CLIP THAT MAKES EVERYBODY LAUGH AND FEEL GOOD, YOU KNOW
WHAT I MEAN, INSTEAD OF IT’S LIKE WHOA, WHAT WAS, THAT BUT
IT’S A FILM I’M REALLY PROUD OF.>>Stephen: SOMETIMES YOU CAN
SEE A FILM AND FEAL GOOD COMING OUT OF IT AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT
WATCHING OTHER PEOPLE FEELING TORMENT.>>OKAY, IT’S ACTUALLY TRUE
BECAUSE A LOT OF US DO FEEL THINGS IN OUR LIFE AND A LOT OF
US ARE CONFUSED BY THE THINGS WE FEEL. AND PART OF THE JOB IS MOVIES IS
TO MAKE SENSE OUT OF THE QUESTIONS. YOU KNOW, THEY DON’T NEED– A
GOOD MOVIE DOESN’T TELL HOW TO VOTE FOR, IT’S NOT LEFT, IT’S
NOT RIGHT. A GOOD MOVIE ARTICULATES A
QUESTION THAT MIGHT BE ON YOUR MIND TOO. AND THEN YOU CAN ASK YOURSELF,
PAUL SCHRAIDER SAYS THE GREAT THING ABOUT THE END OF A MOVIE. A GOOD MOVIE BEGINS AS YOU ARE
WALKING OUT OF THE THEATER. A REALLY GOOD MOVIE IS LIKE A
BELL AND URINING IT AND IT VIBRATES INSIDE YOU AFTER YOU
SEE T YOU KNOW. AND IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE GREAT
FILMS THAT YOU SEE IN YOUR LIFE, THEY DO KIND OF VIBRATE LIKE
THAT NO JOKE, IT SOUNDS A LITTLE AIRY FAIREY TO TALK B BUT CAN I
WALK DOWN THE STREET TODAY, RIGHT, TODAY AND SOMEBODY WILL
SAY TO ME, YOU KNOW, OH CAPTAIN MY CAPTAIN, YOU KNOW. THE END OF THAT MOVIE IS STILL
VIBRATING, YOU KNOW, THAT MOVIE CAME OUT 29 YEARS AGO. YOU KNOW. AND IT IS STILL VIBE LAIGHT. AND THAT IS THE BEAUTIFUL THING
TO BE A PART OF. AND THAT IS WORTH, YOU KNOW,
THAT MOVIE HAD A YOUNG MAN THAT TOOK HIS OWN LIFE. THIS STUFF HAPPENS IT HAPPENS IN
EVERY FAMILY ACROSS AMERICA. THESE ISSUES OF WHERE IS OUR
RELIGIOUS LEADERSHIP. THIS SAY REAL QUESTION, JUST
BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES THE PEOPLE WITH THE MOST MONEY VTS
BIGGEST MEGAPHONE, YOU KNOWMENT DUN MEAN THEY HAVE THE MOST
INTERESTING THINGS TO SAY.>>WELL, I LOOK FORWARD TO THE
VIBRATIONS. THANK YOU, ETHAN.>>FIRST REFORMED IS IN THEATERS
NATIONWIDE JUNE 22nd ETHAN HAWKE, EVERYBODY. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH TONI
COLLETTE.
