It might be a great movie, but when he was describing it to Keith, I thought, "Yeah, he really is NOT going to be interested in seeing this one!" I don't even mind subtitles, but I'm not sure I want to see an entire movie that takes place in the bunker. I think my favorite foreign film recently was "Let the Right One In." But I'm a vampire and zombie buff, not a war film fan.

On that i have to correct Mark. Yes it does take place a lot in the bunker, especially in its second half. But it has a lot of exterior shots. It's not an action war movie, more of a very gritty and intense psychological drama. It is also the only movie i've seen that portrays Hitler as a real person (mind you, not sympathetic. Just not the cartoony nut you usually see) and goes deep into showing the nazi descent into madness and self destruction. Not for everybody but very powerful stuff, and based on a good source too (A book by Joachim Fest, the greatest researcher on Hitler's life and the history of the Nazi party)

Oh, I'm totally with you on that. The cartoony monster is one of the ways that we try to distance ourselves from the evils committed by other people -- a way to pretend that they're somehow not human and therefore not at all like us.

Yeah, exactly. The guy who played him in Valkyrie was not bad, but still too much of a comic book bad guy. And the only other hitler i can think of is Robert Carlyle, which was ridiculous (think of a Jim Carrey looking version of Hitler).

The weird thing is that Hitler in reality was a completely repulsive and psychotic person and even if someone portraid him correctly, he would still look totally un-sympathetic. Yet, when "The downfall" came out, the PC brigade was out in arms, complaining about the "humanization" of nazis.

Yeah, the best part of that exchange was after it had already been established that Keith doesn't do subtitles, and Marc's way of saving it was saying something like "no wiat, man, this'll really get you-the entire movie-from start to finish-takes place in an underground bunker" I could almost hear Keith's nominal interest in the film whistling towards oblivion like a bomb.

Mark Maron just moved up to one of my favorite guests. The comedy conversation was one of the most interesting/engaging discussion the show's had in a while.

"...and there's this scene where a mother euthanizes her kids which is so... so... hilarious!"

I love Marc.

Agreed, Joe Rogan and I are different.
(I heard that people were talking about Rogan again, and since we're internet discussion twins, I figured it appropriate to come weigh in.)

Hey, it's not ALL ironic. I like expanding minds. I have fear.
But you're right, I don't enjoy Ultimate Fried Chicken.

In any event, Joe and I are partners forever now, thanks everyone!
Look out for our new companion show to Fear Factor that's in the works: Anxiety Element.

But are you sorry that it's also harder for GOOD standups to get a job writing a GOOD sitcom?
"Arrested Development" was one of the best shows there was, but it went away, and not because it wasn't more entertaining than a man eating a goat penis (though that is a high bar to compete with).

Reality TV is cheaper and easier to produce than scripted shows. And since it's been working, that makes people perpetuate it even more. So less good scripted shows are given a shot than in a world where reality TV didn't get so much support.

I agree that people/writers/comedians/artists/entertainers should put a solid investment in creating good work.
Rogan certainly does that with his standup, as does Maron, who is one of my favorites.
And since I'm linked with Rogan, everyone is friends now!

Later!

I want to second Marc's props to Jesse Thorn and The Sound of Young America. He really does some amazing interviews. Check him out at Maximum Fun | A public radio show about things that are awesome.
