Spielberg has directed every film in the franchise. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the last film, opened in 2008 and starred Ford opposite Shia LaBeouf, who the producers hoped could over the baton, but the mission failed.

YOU DON'T SAY.

No immediate mention of Lucas.

I sincerely hope they continue with this futile effort until they've made at least one straight Indiana Jones adventure film when Ford is in his 90s.

If the original films were meant to be an homage to serials from the '30s and '40s and set during that same era, it only makes sense that an Indiana Jones film set in the '60s would pay tribute to cinema from that era. I'm thinking something like Bonnie & Clyde meets Easy Rider? There will definitely be at least one extended psychedelic trip sequence.

Horse Throat (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 15 March 2016 19:10 (eight years ago) link

Maybe more like I Am Curious (Yellow) meets Head. I dunno, there are so many possibilities!

Would tributes be more likely to be original Man From Uncle/Mission Impossible/Bond?

JUst trying to think of exotic adventure from the 60s. Probably forgetting something more directly involving archaeology.

that's kind of the ironic thing, adventure movies kind of died out by the 60s, one of the reasons they had to reach back to the 30s for Indy in the first place.

for some people it is harmful because it causes them to dredge up harmful memories and damages their mental health

yes totally - your own emotions can get v uncontrollable v fast

have you ever read "a practical handbook for the actor"? it's from people who studied at mamet's atlantic theatre company and i think you'd like some of what they say. eg don't worry about "being the character". if you're playing abraham lincoln, put on the hat and beard and people will believe you're abraham lincoln, we're all adults here. what people want to see is what YOU bring to the part

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 12 July 2023 14:47 (eleven months ago) link

i was gonna go further into the Mitchum thing to say yes he's been used as an outspoken critic of craft for a long time but it's more complex than that, the links and quotes on that page i linked are more complicated than simple "method bad/natural character good"

reading thru he's not saying this, or can't be quoted saying this, it's about ways of performing rather than dismissing the job of performing

orcas who sign their posts like it's a freaking email (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 12 July 2023 14:47 (eleven months ago) link

in short i wouldn't give much credence to the most quoted Mitchum lines about acting any more than i would give credence to any other famous person quote swilling around the net

orcas who sign their posts like it's a freaking email (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 12 July 2023 14:49 (eleven months ago) link

Oh I def didn't mean that he was saying anything about method acting, the kind of self-important Acting Mitchum was fond of deflating didn't start with the Method.

The quotes I'm thinking of are not "swilling around the net" tho, they come from a deeply researched biography, albeit one I read 10+ years ago and don't have on hand to quote from.

Daniel_Rf, Wednesday, 12 July 2023 14:53 (eleven months ago) link

sorry Daniel i haven't read the biog so i'm not saying Mitchum wasn't prone to posturing about this stuff. i was thinking that he's the go-to example for other people who wanna posture about it and the truth is probably more complex, like it always is. it was intersting reading things where he definitely wasn't completely dismissive of the job of acting

orcas who sign their posts like it's a freaking email (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 12 July 2023 14:57 (eleven months ago) link

Mitchum of an appropriate age would've been a perfectly good Indiana Jones btw

orcas who sign their posts like it's a freaking email (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 12 July 2023 14:58 (eleven months ago) link

I have nothing relevant for what that dude was feeling

i doubt this tbh - and you say you were able to turn him on/off like a lightswitch so there's something in there

that book i mentioned talks about using "as ifs" - you use something from your own experience, or that you can easily imagine, and say "you know, if AS IF i was trying to convince an airline employee to let me on the plane after the gate was closed" and that's enough of a goose to your sensibilities to let your body and mind feel it.. like.. ahh yep, that's the vibe i need

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 12 July 2023 14:58 (eleven months ago) link

the affective memory thing is famous because it's controversial (now as then) and prob the root of the DDL-style immersion we now mean when we say method, but all the other stuff that came from stanislavsky (relaxation, focus, deliberation, the "magic if") now seems so obvious i think we forget someone had to think of it

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 12 July 2023 15:03 (eleven months ago) link

Tracer that feels much closer to my understanding of what the Method is than the extreme examples that are celebrated by fans of lads behaving badly

orcas who sign their posts like it's a freaking email (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 12 July 2023 15:04 (eleven months ago) link

I always cringe when I hear about stuff like Jared Leto's method approach to the Joker of all things...every performer needs to find the approach that works for them, which makes sense simply because every individual is going to be different emotionally and psychologically with very different life experiences, but unfortunately the inherent nature of method acting makes any misguided practice of it especially appalling.

Even with the best practitioners, it's pretty unsettling to me. I remember years ago Philip Seymour Hoffman mentioned on a talk show (probably Charlie Rose) that acting to him was "pretending to have feelings that aren't really there," and I have a vague recollection that he framed it as an explanation as to why acting to him was not only difficult but risky or potentially damaging. It wasn't something he wanted to elaborate, and I remember it being a quick, rushed answer, but it was a disturbing concept. I never forgot it, and when he died years later, it was hard not to think about it - I think the New Yorker even did a profile that seemed to link his craft with the turmoil he had gone through over the years.

birdistheword, Wednesday, 12 July 2023 18:06 (eleven months ago) link

It's even possible he said "create" or "imagine" feelings rather than just "pretend" which would be more disturbing...it's been so long and I only saw it once, so my memory of it may have changed. Wish I had a copy so I can get it right.

birdistheword, Wednesday, 12 July 2023 18:12 (eleven months ago) link

I imagine the pressure to perform is harder as a screen actor because if you are doing a stage production and one day think to yourself "fuck, I'm in over my head here", yeah, you could get savaged in the press, and yeah, some vids might show up on Youtube, but in a movie, your shit performance is preserved in amber for everyone to see and clown endlessly. not to mention some of the punishing circumstances people are put into on set.

so I can see perhaps doing everything possible to give yourself an edge there, including pushing yourself over the edge mentally speaking.

linoleum gallagher (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 12 July 2023 18:59 (eleven months ago) link

Also, all Leto's method acting stuff leads to incredibly irritating and unconvincing performances. In BR 2049, for example, he kills the film dead every time he appears.

Tsar Bombadil (James Morrison), Thursday, 13 July 2023 05:32 (eleven months ago) link

i'm probably a "but that's the point!" guy more often than is tolerable but BR2049 really does test this to its limit: no no that's the point of course the impotent scion of a corporate god would be callow and pretentious! this callow and pretentious tho?

difficult listening hour, Thursday, 13 July 2023 14:09 (eleven months ago) link

If it hadn't been written about ad nauseam, I wouldn't have guessed that Strong was method acting. He's so good and unforced! Leto is the opposite: big effort, totally unconvincing.

It was bizarre watching Dial of Destiny (shit title) now refracted through the 40 years of action-adventure culture - the anonymous National Treasures and Mummy movies, Myst-like puzzle games and their progeny, etc. - and just how far removed we are from the original idea: taking a cheap Republic b-movie serial plot and going at it with all the forces of Big Hollywood. Not altogether different from Die Hard's original blueprint of a taking a basic heist film and making everything about it, no matter how small, as awesome as possible.

Also like the Die Hard movies, none of the subsequent Indiana Jones sequels ever got it just quite right like the first one, each one less memorable than the previous, until you get to movie #4 when the movies themselves are abstracted into only one identifiable part: it's the one with Shia LaBeouf; it's the one with Kevin Smith. By movie #5, Jones and McClane are, glum, angry, and never in charge of themselves - only reacting to whatever the plot is doing at that moment. Kinda like these final sequels themselves... who would even be excited to work on this? Just shove it out and make sure those checks clear before the strike.

I felt sorry for Indy. He never would have been able to publish anything related to his government work in archeology for national security reasons. His major finds are warehoused away and forgotten (is Hangar 18 an accredited museum?). Undergrads were flirting with him in the first movie, now they openly mock him. All those years of fighting Nazis and now they're throwing a ticker tape parade for the men who flew to the moon on Nazi rockets. I suppose if Indy had cooperated better he could have retired to a nice place out in Long Island, but knowing him he probably said "that belongs in a museum" to a Rockefeller or some benefactor that could ensure he'd never ever get tenure.

Elvis Telecom, Tuesday, 18 July 2023 09:40 (ten months ago) link

Good post, especially last paragraph - though I maintain that this film is much better than #4, and also FWIW better than #2. I think that age and pathos ('I feel sorry for Indy') can contribute something of value rather than just detracting.

the pinefox, Tuesday, 18 July 2023 10:01 (ten months ago) link

Watched #2 again over the weekend and, while the Short Round/Indy relationship is fun and endearing and the first sacrifice scene is all-time the rest of the flick, I felt like I was watching some other adventure film and not Indian Jones. Plus most of the thing takes place *in a cave*. And then, a lifetime later, we're out on some cliffs.

Phoebe v enjoyable, Ford fine, some of the early Nazi quips were good. the end.

The Antikythera device? rmde Look. i agree that much like the ~idea~ of crystal skulls it has an interesting actual history
but the heavy lifting required to turn this into a plot device is really stupid.
keep it in the woo-woo supernatural/occult realm, do NOT start explaining at length how this shit works for all of our sakes

unlike the ark or the grail there is never a concise handwavey “ok got it” explanation of what it is or does or what the stakes are

so we’re nowhere as soon as it’s revealed.

and then it levels up into a timetravel device? wait ok but ~not really~ because it jpoints to possible time fissures … uuughhhh YOU GUYS JFC
li’m already bored
whaaaaat are we doing

OH but we’ll make it pay off because we are ~fully~ going back to Chekhovs siege of syracuse by flying a fucking plane through a time tunnel

we’re shooting roman centurions
indy wants to … stay … here with archimedes
yep nbd we’re hanging out in 212 BC Sicily chatting to archimedes in ancient greek

what the actual fuck are we doing here please

am I watching motherfucking Bill and Ted
PLEASE STOP THIS AT ONCE

spielberg’s absence as a director was noticeable in that this shit was dull as hell and then levelled up into pure stupid absolute liquid shit

Was Indy meant to be an explicit villain in this? He pries the dial from a mentally disturbed friend promising to destroy it but catalogs it in the stacks instead and forgets about it and also about checking up on his supposed goddaughter. I guess the series as a whole has an implicit undercurrent of Indy being a graverobbing cad but there's a distinct lack of heroic tone in this movie.

It looks absolutely sensational - the colours and the editing and the camerawork are all just ridiculously satisfying. The henchmen are extremely A+ henchmen. One laconic, drawling hothead, bursting out of his too-tight shirt, and one mountain of a man who I think never speaks, just hurls scenery around. Phoebe Waller-Bridge does her thing, and it’s great. A lot of the pieces are there. But none of it really adds up, and Ford is just a nullity. Would have been better as a Tin Tin movie imo

Humanitarian Pause (Tracer Hand), Saturday, 25 November 2023 18:06 (six months ago) link

Oh and the script is super hacky. Stuff you’d cringe at even in an Uncharted cut scene. At one point Indy grabs the contested artifact and yells “to the victor go the spoils!”
