All The President's Minutes - Minute 43 with Niles Schwartz

Play
Read more

All The President's Minutes is a podcast where conversations about movies, journalism, politics and history meet. Each show we use the seminal and increasingly prescient 1976 film All The President's Men as a portal, to engage with the themes and the warnings of the film resonating since its release. For minute 43, I join writer, author and incredible film mind Niles Schwartz. Niles and I digress into discussions about "Capone," being a disease investigator, President's being all a second act, the austerity of the storytelling and what happens next being for the history books.

Synopsis: A motion picture chronicling the last adventures of bank robber John Dillinger (Johnny Depp), Public Enemies was met with much bafflement upon its 2009 release. Director Michael Mann's terse storytelling and unorthodox use of high-definition digital cameras challenged viewers' familiarity with Hollywood's historical gangland elegance while highlighting Public Enemies' own place in a medium—and culture—undergoing sweeping technological change. In Off the Map, Niles Schwartz immerses us in Mann's representation of Dillinger, a subject increasingly aware of his own role as a romanticized frontier folk hero, in flight from an enveloping bureaucratic system. The cultural issues of Dillinger's 1930s anticipate the 21st century watershed moment for the moving image, as our relationship with the pictures surrounding us increasingly affects our own sense of identity, historical truth, and means of relating to each other. Mann's follow-up, the hacker thriller Blackhat (2015), reflects a world where Public Enemies' abstract surveillance state has since colonized the firmament of our everyday lives. Yet in this virtual labyrinth of surplus images, cinema may inwardly illuminate a transformative path for us. Off the Map places Mann's late works in deep focus, exploring our present relationship to cinema on a backdrop that swings from the blockbuster spectacle of Avatar to the curious intimacy of Moonrise Kingdom, ultimately suggesting the mysterious space between the viewer and the screen may yet become a sanctuary of deep spiritual reflection.

#7 Midnight Cowboy 50th anniversary with Niles Schwartz

Play
Read more

For episode #7 of the Cineversary podcast, we take a walk on the wild side to New York City in the late 1960s, a town where street hustlers and sex workers find both refuge and rejection--as evidenced in the film "Midnight Cowboy," which celebrates a 50th anniversary in 2019. Host Erik Martin interviews Niles Schwartz, a movie reviewer for Slant Magazine and co-founder of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Cinephile Society. Together, they examine why "Midnight Cowboy" is worth celebrating all these years later, its cultural impact and legacy, what we can learn from the picture today, how it has stood the test of time, and more.

ONE HEAT MINUTE is the podcast examining Michael Mann's 1995 crime opus HEAT minute by minute. It's the 74th minute (1:13:00-1:14:00) - host Blake Howard joins another Mann aficionado and author of the phenomenal analysis "Off the Map: Freedom, Control, and the Future in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies," Mr Niles Schwartz. Blake and Niles discuss connections to Kubrick with the awesome György Ligeti song "Concerto For Violoncello And Orchestra" underpinning this sequence (as discovered by Richard Combs in his Film Comment article "MICHAEL MANN: BECOMING" (Vol. 32, No. 2 MARCH – APRIL 1996). We also discuss concepts of performance intertextuality, Mann's other "guys" and finally, chuckle about the unfortunate demise of Dziga Vertov's Soviet School.
