The Safdie Brothers • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #307
Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 307 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A true cinematic treat for you this week as Pip is joined by directing siblings THE SAFDIE BROTHERS!
You may know them from the fantastic ‘Good Time’ (featuring a tightly wound Robert Pattinson), or maybe ‘Heaven Knows What’, but for sure you will be seeing much more of them with their new Netflix / cinema joint and Adam Sandler-starring ‘Uncut Gems’! Pip is a confirmed fan of course, and caught up with them on a very swift whirlwind run in London to talk all things film, from the time taken to get to this stage with the film, seeing the effect of it on an audience (especially comedically), the casting of Adam Sandler, the importance of voices, the use of extras in a far more involved sense, British acting and the realism of it, casting real people, working with musicians, using New York as a character, their intense focus on character even down to auditioning actors for one line appearances, and the sonic world of a film including the ‘Atmos’ mix which they go into. Amazing - proper film nerd’s one here and you’re not one, you might well be by the end. Enjoy!
