8:02 pm
right place. and out comes this amazing combination of cinematic virility and absolute fear. it's like watching an animal. >> "raging bull" is a great title. the film fulfills the promise. the reality of the boxing and the great slow motion, all of the black and white gore, the violence of the flash bulbs going off. when he designed the movie, marty, he purposefully didn't put a clutch on the film. there's no clutch. >> hey, ray, you never went down, ray. you never got me down, ray. >> it's a boxing movie for people who don't like boxing. it's not about that. it's about this man who was based on a real person who is really at war with himself. >> come on. harder. harder. >> i didn't really understand boxing, but the character was interesting.

>> calvin, give me the camera. >> i didn't get it yet. >> dad, give her the camera. >> i want a really good picture of the two of you. >> but i really want to get a shot of the three of you men. give me the camera calvin, please. >> not until i get a picture of the two of you. hang on a second. >> give her the god damn camera. >> "ordinary people" centers on people who cannot get in touch with their feelings and who avoid the darker underpinnings. i would like to tell a story about what people will do to avoid being seen for who they really are. i gave mary tyler moore the script. i said, look, i could see you playing this. she was drawn to it. and that really hit me because that told me that there is some part of herself that she was willing so expose that has not been exposed before and she wanted that chance. and so she was given that chance. and she did a great job. >> kelvin? >> in that moment where mary tyler moore comes downstairs and she asks her husband what's wrong.
8:05 pm
>> i don't know if i love you anymore. >> she goes upstairs and she's just -- there's something so moving to me about somebody who is so deeply repressed cracking open. >> that's where the dam breaks. she gets hit by some truth that she can't articulate. she's so taken aback, she can't adjust, she can't take it in. that's what that moment was about. >> then you look at some of these films of the 1980s like "ordinary people" and like "blue velvet," those films are explicitly about how things look are not the way they really are. you have to understand this was when ronald reagan became president and the idea was that after all sorts of traumas, particularly watergate and vietnam, we healed, but as the public pronouncement is we're

good again, our movies are telling us, no, we're not. no, we are not. >> wendy, i'm home. >> i play this game. all your favorite filmmakers alive or dead were opening a movie on the same day, which movie would you see first? and for me it would be stanley cooper because you're going to see something you never saw before, and he did that in, think about it, every genre. he's going to make a horror movie, it's going to be the horror movie done in a way that you would not expect. >> to me "the shining" isn't about horror, it's about dread.
8:07 pm
from the very first frame, something grabs your solar plexus and pulls on it. nobody uses silence like stanley kubrick. >> he creates a pacing where it overtakes the way you're breathing and you're existing and you're in there. in all films, he controls you. >> steady cam work in "the shining" broke new ground. the steady cam gave stanley a chance to put us in a scene that didn't have any time constraints. you get so hypnotized being behind that tricycle. you don't have to see his face, you're behind it. which leads to one of the scariest shots in the movie. >> hello, danny. >> hello, danny. come and play with us. fantastic. >> was betting $40 million on its new movie "heaven's gate," but after two years of preparation and eight months of production, the motion picture has been yanked from american theaters after only one day. >> "heaven's gate" took almost a year to complete. the director's whose "deer hunter" film was a great success got a free hand. his producer said he was out of control. the result a three and a half-hour bomb. >> "heaven's gate" is a stake
8:08 pm
through the heart in hollywood. it's the cautionary tale that's all about to say, no, no, the studio's going to step in here and this is not going to be another "heaven's gate" and that's how you get the movies of the 1980s. ♪ >> you knew where you were when you first saw "the empire strikes back." because it was the "star wars" movie that took the whole thing to a whole another level -- "star wars" was huge but "empire strikes back" was phenomenal. these established characters, you saw them intermix in a way you hadn't in the previous film. where there is this budding romance going on between han solo and princess leia. >> i love you. >> i know. >> luke is transitioning into wanting to become a jedi knight. >> i saw that as this is the

good act because in classical dramatic philosophy, you set the thing up in the first act, in the second act your heros are put in a position that is unresolvable. they're put in enormous jeopardy. you don't know how it's going to work out. and that is always the most interesting part of the story to tell. >> obi-wan never told you what happened to your father. >> he told me enough. he told me you killed him. >> when we actually started work, it was just me and george in the office, and george says to me, you know, darth vader is luke's father. >> i am your father. >> no shit! >> no! >> and it was about fathers and sons, about good and evil personified. >> it is your destiny. >> i thought that made the whole saga better instantly. ♪ (vo) morning, noon, night;

8:14 pm
whip and i committed to the movie based on one line george told me. larry, george and i sat around for three days and basically made up the story from beginning to end. >> there's a line in "raiders" that means a lot to me. in the beginning of an action sequence, they've lost control of the ark of the covenant and indy says, no, i'm going to get it back. and his friend says, how are you going to do it? >> i don't know. i'm making this up as i go. >> that, to me, was what life was like. we just make it up as we go. indiana jones is very good at that. >> we came up with an idea, like a truck chase. and then we figured, well, how do we get the truck chase in the movie? so we had these big kind of subjects, and then we kind of reverse engineered in order for it to earn its place in the story. >> spielberg is a master of staging. even when they're moving very fast and cutting very quickly, you always know the lay of the

tyrell. >> you could smell a movie. >> i don't think there's any director who can encode content into the visual presence so that when you see the street markets, it tells you that in the future technology runs cross class, that populations are mixed, there's overcrowding, there's poverty. he's projecting so much content into those images and you just soak it in. >> why is it raining? why do you want it to be at night? so i said because that's the way i bleep ple[ bleep ] want it. >> he was planting clues in the movie where he actually was the repliccant of like this unicorn

one of the really great films of the '830s is "the verdict." paul newman plays a washed up lawyer who say an alcoholic kind of ambulance chaser. what makes it uniquely lamet is even when it's movie stars, big movie stars, he manages to bring them down in the case of "the verdict" to the boston streets, and you can see the stars in the movie but they have not turned the movie into something glamorous but on the opposite have entered the drudge and reality of the world that lamet's painting.
