He is a lot edgier than I imagined. Interesting fellow.
M. Cobretti (1 day ago)
He is so clear about the things in his life that his answers are short and makes the interviewer look stupid.

There is clearly a disconnect between the Coens Jewish liberalism as part of Hollywoods elite, and TLJs Texas Republican conservatism, and it shows in this picture. Light years apart. They clearly were at odds during filming. I suspect TLJ was also at odds with Spielbergs interpretation of Lincoln, wanting something more edgy and less mainstream and documentarian than it was. But thats Hollywood. They dont understand TLJ, Eastwood or Penn. And yet McCormand and Coen view themselves as "anarchists against Hollywoods mainstream". If they are the rebels, Cronenberg and Gilliam must have been antichrists.

If you get such a great actor like Tommy Jones don't get an insufferable interviewer like Charlie Rose.
Charles Klossner (12 days ago)
Charlie Rose has such a smug, droopy face.

Sense of here now. That puzzling mindset is a trick due addictions and too little souls for needs are met. A gift to be thinking at a table from another time place. Make best of.

I very much disliked this guy's interview style. He really fails to make a connection and seems unable to get his interviewees to warm to hima nd want to tell him their stories. Instead he is awkward and distant.

Tommy Lee Jones and Al Gore were more than college roommates, they were both intimate and gay.

It seems like both of these guys are severely over examining the movie character. Of course it HAS to involve politics. They are so full of themselves.

Charlie is better at harassing women than he is at interviewing people.

It's quite sad, really, that people like Charlie Rose and Michael Parkinson were gifted with the job of longer form interviews, yet were not particularly skilled and didn't really become more skilled as they progressed. I don't know why, although I think it's largely because they ended up placing themselves on the same level as their subjects.

Mr Jones is right about Texas lagging when it comes to providing assistance to film makers. There are places in Texas that really can't be reproduced authentically by shooting in New Mexico or Arizona. Yet New Mex on one side and Louisiana on the other do much more for film makers.

Tommy just comes off as a a Texan, I don't know if he is or isn't but when I see him I just hear the Theme Song of Lonesome Dove. Charlie was and always has been an ignorant shithead (I would continue but it is beneath me)
Jeff B (2 months ago)
It's excellent how tough his character in No Country was depicted by having the evil killer in his custody at the start of the film. I'd love to have seen the scene where he apprehended him.

Cant remember who I lent this movie to(NCFOM) and ive been trying to either track it down or find it at a pawn shop or Walmart to no avail. I thinkin I become obsessed to own it again so I can pop it in when ever I want and watch it. The elements in it are so satisfying just like when the Sherriff drinks a glass of milk on moss's couch. I guess there's no Walmart or pawnshops for no country for old men or Canadian Netflix for that matter.

Patrick O'Brien (9 days ago)
Some people don't get the theme and even if you do some people don't like absurdist type media. The Idea deconstructs normal narrative. There's no happy ending, no grand reveal or resolution. The protagonist dies off screen well before the end. The movie's structure reflects the theme that the plot conveys. It's not for everyone, but personally I love it. Perhaps the realism that things aren't always fairy tale endings, that there is no point, that for the most part, no one person is all that important, those that have lived are unchanged, just as confused, just as determined, just as weary, or unfeeling, etc. If it were a typical Hollywood movie the good guy wins, bad guy dies, and the sheriff gets his understanding of the world, but that's not real life, and not the book's theme. Personally I think it makes for a more interesting and less cookie cutter of a film.

Charlie might be, hmmm... Unnecessarily "pushy" at times... Some questions do require a bit of thought before answering well... Thumbs up for Tommy Lee though. :-)

I could never decide who was worse, Charlie Rose or Larry King. They were both horrible interviewers

Luka Meah (4 months ago)
I never thought his character in NCFOM as bigoted. So if he thought he was playing a bigot, he did not pull it off. I still thought he was great in that amazing film: a weathered man who finally lost his nerve. IMO, it's the far leftists who are the true fascists, who are currently working 24/7 to alter the Bill of Rights, grab guns, and curb free speech.

Charlie Rose is a goofy over achiever that should stay in his house away from people, he doesn’t suck, he swallows.

I started wondering if Charlie watched the movies. He starts talking about No Country and it turns out he is talking about Elah.
Ozzie England (4 months ago)
Tommy Lee Jones was the WORST part about that otherwise great movie. He comes across as trying to hard to act like he's grizzled and a tired old lawman. I think he was miscast in this role, because he certainly didn't pull it off.

Who would you rather have seen in this role? (I think I know who you might be thinking of...)

"islands in the Stream" is a great story. I sure hope Mr. Jones gets the movie made. It was once done one with George C. Scott. It was a profoundly sad movie, but the dialogue was true enough. I read it years ago when I was in the Coast Guard. Time to revisit. Time to go.

i have liked tommy lee jones since his soap beginnings BUT..... fell in love with him and gus during lonesome dove.... this is the first time i've ever seen him in a sit down.........i like how he speaks. he weighs what he wants to say, and makes sure what he wants to say, is what comes out of his mouth. not an open mouth, spew forth kinda guy......i like him even more AND......nor only is he a fine actor, he's a damn great one too.......

He's in my personal list of the Top 10 Favorite/Best Actors of All Time. Not everybody can, or will, take the time to sit down and watch a TV mini-series.....I get that. But if you've never watched Lonesome Dove....You're missing out not only on one of the greatest cinematic experiences, but also missing Mr Jones' greatest characters/performances.

Great conversation between two of the most intellectual personalities in entertainment. Can't help but think of the greatest IVY league football game that I had the pleasure witnessing Harvard "beat" Yale 29 to 29 in 1968 in Cambridge! Tommy Lee Jones played in that game. Jones was a 1st team Ivy Guard for the Crimson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sveyK5xFHzU

I'd forgotten how much Charlie Rose irritates me. He pushes his own point and tries to score points with the person he's interviewing, rather than just exploring the subject or the person he's interviewing. I've always found that annoying as hell.
Jeff Maylor (10 months ago)
I wonder if Tommy Lee Jones really has a problem with ethnocentrism. He never seems to call out the obvious Jewish dominance of Hollywood. I think Tommy is just doing cheap virtue signaling.

Charlie Rose is so insufferable. He asks Tommy a question, and when Tommy answers, Rose says "Exactly." As if Charlie was the teacher giving a test and the audience needs Charlie to verify that Tommy's opinion is correct, because Charlie is the authority on everything. And when Tommy says he knows the author who wrote the book and has read all of his books, Charlie has to immediately say he knew that. Charlie can't subordinate himself to an interview subject, no matter who it is. I'm glad he got what was coming to him.

It's funny that the very types of men that created a free and equal country are looked down upon by people who haven't bothered to think things through. I hope Tommy Lee Jones (who I had a huge crush on in "The Eyes of Laura Mars" as a pubescent girl) is saying some of these dumb attitudes in order to make sure he continues to get work in Hollywood, since they are horrible lefties and who had to toe the Democratic line to keep getting work. It's sad. I suspect he might be a little more conservative than he admits to being. If Jones is a true Texan, I suspect he is far more conservative than he would ever admit. I don't know about his feelings on illegal aliens, but most older Texans do not share a highly liberal look at life and society.
