the grand sweep of history and a to ber-old son advancing deputy crown prince, and throwing off the crown prince, and now making these arrests under the banner of corruption, consolidation of power. he already had a lot of power. make sense of this for us. robin: this is a real-life "game of thrones." it is arguably the most are mad at moment in the history of saudi arabia. the young crown prince and his ailing father have engaged in to a coup d'etat against their own royal family. it was a sweeping arrest over the weekend, but has reportedly continued through monday and no one is quite sure when it may end. aey have netted more than dozen senior princes, three heads of networks, one of the richest men in the world, the leader of the most effective branch of the military, current
and former cabinet ministers. this is astonishing in its sweep. and very sudden. but it does follow a number of steps, beginning with the summer when the crown prince and his father orchestrated the removal of the crown prince. and the young prince, the current king's third son, who was only 32, stepped in as the crown prince. he now holds the levers of every branch that is important in the kingdom -- political, economic, military, and in the royal court. now he has this new anticorruption commission that has allowed them to arrest these extraordinary array of his own family. -- most powerful people among the most powerful people in the kingdom. and, seize their assets. he issued a ban on travel for
other members of the royal family. it is very uncertain where this is now headed. clearly he wants to consolidate power, clearly you -- this is in the run-up of some kind of succession, whether it is the king abdicating and the regent stepping in. or paving a way to secure his claim to the throne in a very volatile environment. it has repercussions for the middle east, the world financial markets, and for the united states and western allies. charlie: no one has seen the saudis fight like this publicly before. they had ruled by consensus. robin: yes, absolutely. since the founder of saudi arabia died in 1953, his sons, all ruled by consensus. they would take one brother, and .t went through dozens we are now at a point where not only have they purged other members of the royal family,
they have also created a new royal family from within this sprawling house of saudi, which now has thousands of members. they are excluding hundreds of other princes who are senior. among those purged was one who was a contender, for decades older than mohammad bin salman salman. it is a way to make sure he has the throne. , what youhe americans think president trump and his son-in-law that new about this? robin: it is interesting. the relationship between saudi arabia and the united states has been transformed under president bush. there was a lot of tension during the obama administration. charlie: president bush or president trump? sorry, president trump. there was a lot of tension under the obama administration. trump made a visit to the kingdom.
they have communicated regularly. threekushner has made trips, the last one, unannounced in october, and the run-up to this massive surge. the pretext was to talk about the process. jared kushner has relations to the crown prince. they are both in their 30's, they talked well into the night, for a.m., about regional issues. closeness and a sense that the trump administration had implicitly, if not explicitly, approved what is happening. president trump called it the king on saturday from air force one on his way to asia. and praised him for the kind of statements the king and the crown prince made, pledging modernization of the kingdom. and, taking a firm stand against terrorism. there is a sense of father and son duo now in power feel they
have the power and support or takebility to go ahead and some really tough stuff against their own family to secure their power. charlie: a lot of people are in favor of the kind of reforms that the crown prince enacted, his plan for economic change and corporal aspects, including women driving, as a symbol of that. many supported that. so they object to him moving fast, so young, so inexperienced. there is pushed back that reason. is that true? robin: absolutely. his vision 2030, and attempt to modernize the kingdom, and transform parts of the kingdom into areas where they have high-tech clubs, for example, like robots. they will do a lot of medical research. this is a very ambitious plan.
it would call for the investment of hundreds of billions of dollars. there is a sense that this modernization is critical for the saudi kingdom to move beenrd, that it has dependent economically on its oil revenues. this is an attempt to diversify. the problem, economic reform is not matched by political reform. giving women the right to drive does not take you to a place that opens up society. there are a lot of questions about whether women will be able to drive without getting permission from the male guardian, is there will be limits on the hours, limits on whether they can drive only to work and to shop, not to "joyride." there are token steps that will be taken next year. but they are not meaningful. this is a country where you have, somewhere around the
majority of the population, is well under 30. about 1/3 of them are unemployed. these issues do not address these fundamental concerns that have led to a lot of discontent, and have led people to join al qaeda or isis or become disillusioned with the royal family. this is a problem for the regime. they have taken some steps, they have ambitious plans. but will it be matched by things that will allow them to feel like the country is modernizing? it is one of the most conservative countries on earth. inhas given us the ideology islam that produced al qaeda. there are a lot of questions about whether he can adapt, especially under the leadership of someone who was only 32. charlie: does this have to do with corruption, or power and maintenance of power? toin: as a saudi editor said
me yesterday, the kingdom has been corrupted for 40 or 50 years. it has been endemol. are these the people most orrupt, or the most threat, be seen as more visionary than the king and his young son? corruption is an issue. yes, it must be dealt with. corruption as you know as well as anyone, is endemic across the mentally -- across the middle east. it might not be the prime reason. people inside the kingdom resent the royal family, the kind of wealth that is concentrated among the elite. but i am not sure this is the way to handle it. what we do know -- do not know, are these people being formally charged? have they had access to lawyers? as far as we know from pictures, a lot of been corralled into the ritz-carlton, where there is a strong security contingent.
they have not been allowed to say anything. prince, why is the alaweed, involved in this? robin: he is one of the richest men in the world, involved in business deals with bill gates and murdoch. he took the plaza in new york off of donald trump's plan -- hands. citibank, one of the biggest investors in twitter. he is a forward thinker and has been very imaginative. he gave $20 million to georgetown university to create a center for understanding. this wasas roped into an incredible signal to anyone with any resources, the things they can buy their way out, or that money is a cushion. saudi arabia is in for a rough shop. charlie: are they put on trial, what will happen to them? robin: we have no idea. he one story about alwaleed,
got into a twitter were with donald trump. in 2015 he sent out a tweet that trump was not only a disgrace to the republican party, but the entire u.s. and he should step down. eight hours later, trump tweeted back and called him guilty -- dopey and said he only excelled because of his father's money. of course, donald trump only did well because of his father's money. there's been tension between them since. charlie: someone said to me, it is either one of two things. a young man very confident in his own abilities, that he can take risky moves and prevail. very nervous and acting first to save his own skin. robin: it may be a bit of both. this is the young man that has incredible confidence that he has a way to chart a whole different saudi arabia.
he is changing the way the country's world and changing who changing the way the country is ruled. sure there ise not a challenge to his own power, that he does get the own throne. he has made a number of mistakes in a short period. minister, defense behind the war in yemen, which is like our vietnam. he engaged in a feud with qatar, the little peninsula where you just were, off the saudi coast. doha, the royal family has managed to survive this isolation by its big neighbor. the saudis think they should have a more important role in the region.
things are not going well. thelie: you wrote in newyorker.com, warren buffett and others have been arrested, a former u.s. official told me. it has the appearance of a coup d'etat. saudi arabia is rapidly becoming another country. the kingdom has never been this unstable. this is not over by a long shot. robin: this is the beginning. can the young crown prince sustain the momentum that began this summer with ousting his predecessor, then in september arresting prominent clerics and individuals -- intellectuals? charlie: take note of one thing you said from the beginning, there is the national guard. they have been led by the abdullah family, the previous
king who died a year or two ago. for years, it has been their own power base. then all of a sudden they replaced the head of the national guard with one of their own. robin: in some ways, he was the most powerful man removed. and saudial guard arabia is their most effective military branch, best trained. boys have always had the primary role of protecting the royal family. -- him, he is and taken over all branches of security. it would be hard for anyone to challenge them. this was in some ways the most shocking. who wasinated a man widely seen as a future potential king himself. charlie: robin wright, thank you. we will be back. stay with us. ♪

film a friend of mine said, you are like a six-year-old. gather, it was about a bunch of six-year-olds, you could give them $180 million to make it. fun, audiences everywhere smile. which is not something i see often anymore, coming out of the cinema smiling. it is an escape. i feel we need a bit of escape at the moment. i am happy to provide it. charlie: good for you. of all theseenius marvel comic characters? is it just that? these people are larger-than-life and they take you to another world, and therefore coming to escape from whatever it is that might be troubling you? taika: yes, but i also think they are very relatable.
thor is essentially a rich kid from you -- from outer space that just wants to be loved. hulk, has a bipolar disorder he cannot control. of hulk is the theme the age-old idea of wrestling with two things. as we look at every character, they probably dressed ridiculously, but there is something relatable. charlie: had you always wanted to make one of these films? taika: no, but it was never my dream to be a filmmaker. my background was painting and photography and visual arts, graphics. i fell into this after making short films, and they did very well. i was encouraged, more than anything. charlie: what happened to the art? taika: i got to address that in
a rectangle. now i can satisfy that side of myself, compositionally, in the frame. charlie: do live in new zealand? taika: i live between new zealand and los angeles. los angeles is my favorite city in america. new zealand is a suburb of australia. [laughter] traitorous comment, that was. charlie: when you started to direct films, did you feel this contributed? you had a visual acuity, a sense of color? taika: yes, i do feel that. it has been a long time, growing up in theater and writing plays, directing plays for myself and with friends. being in different bands
and playing music and performing, all of those various me for thistraining thing, which is a combination of all those things. typeie: do have a certain of film you want to get to, now that you were on this success track? you now have the freedom to do anything you want to do. h, pretty much. i would like to go back and do some of my smaller films. charlie: meaning what? scripts you never made? films.i quite enjoyed my i would like to come back and do .hese hollywood things it is pretty fun, a fun experience. make thingsyou
besides blockbusters? taika: toy commercials. [laughter] story, this a great bombastic world. all the crayons, and let out every color imaginable. with 180 dollars million, you can say, you need this, we can do it. and sometimes that is not enough. whether it is 3 million or 200 --lion, it not: if you had had $180 million, but $300 million, this would've been a 2x better film?
taika: i do not know. u.s., most directors, they do not know the budget. the thing you're always struggling for and the thing you always want is more time. there is never enough time to shoot these films. a lot of my films were shot in 25 days. 85 days, and still struggling with time. charlie: where is the great joy for you? is it more shooting than anything? taika: no. stuck in a dark room with one person, imagine you and i, anyone, for a year. and no one else. charlie: but you have all the power and you choose. you sit there and you choose. change this, do this. put this song in. that take, not that take. taika: that is pretty much it.
i really love being on set because i love interacting with a group, i like having a family feel on the set. village anding a being the master of that village. charlie: there you go, power. taika: it is very complex. it is not enough to just control one person in a dark room, control many people in many environments. [laughter] that is what you should make, your biography. [laughter] charlie: what is the state of the new zealand film industry today? taika: i think it is doing quite well. it is a thriving industry for our population. we make maybe eight films a year on average. of those arewo
pretty good. the same ratio as the rest of the world. 20% is all right and the rest is --. it, you look at hollywood, what is made. you have to get to the good stuff. charlie: is it all about scripts, too? taika: it is. charlie: because if you have a good script, you can fix the rest of the stuff? taika: everyone is drawn to a good script. i remember being in hollywood in finding these scripts, this is an amazing script. told my agent, i would love to do this film. they say sure, your number 25 on the list. actors and directors, they know when it is a good script. charlie: when you take a
meeting, you try to convince whoever on the property or that i to finance it, have the best idea and can bring together the highest convergence of talent and creativity? taika: in this film, there was not a story when i went in to pitch. i was not pitching an idea so much, but tone. there was no pitch. i cobbled together images from different films and put them to music, just a show, it could be like this. that there is no story. i think the pitching process is each other outs and see if you could work together for two years. i think this pitch is going well, charlie, because i like you and we could be made -- mates. i could hang out with you for two years. [laughter] charlie: look at the actors you
have your, chris comes worth -- worth, tom hilton. -- hiddleston. here is a scene between those two, meeting their sister, cate blanchett. charlie: here it is, roll the tape. thor, some of odin. hela: really, you do not look like him. thor: perhaps we could come to an arrangement. hela:k you do not look like him. neel. loki: beg your pardon? hela: kneel. before your queen. thor: i do not think so.
this is not possible. darling, you have no idea what is possible. charlie: all right. that was a pretty good scene, wasn't it? taika: it was different. there are better things. she was good. charlie: oh boy, is she good. she has been here many times. can you feel her presence in the chair? you do know what movies you are going to make next? taika: yeah. one of the things i am doing is a stop motion. other than that, a couple of scripts in europe, i would like to make some studio films. charlie: something on broadway?

he pioneered american cuisine at the chez planisse. he was propelled into the public eye. a new documentary, "jeremiah tower: the last magnificent ," examines his life and industry. here is a look. >> jeremiah tower change the world. >> he was the father of american cuisine. sexy.was just what theah defined modern american restaurant could be. jeremiah tower on cnn. anthony bourdain, the executive producer, and jeremiah tower himself, welcome. what you want to make this film? anthony: i was aware of jeremiad
by reputation. i had been cooking food that was either a direct ripoff of his or heavily influenced by him, for years without knowing it. "californiabook, dish," a memoir. it left me angry. was a clear case made for his true importance to what they call the american revolution. to fact that he appeared have been wittingly written out of history made me press my justice button, made me angry. and was the impetus for this film. as the project progressed, i took a bigger view. it is a great character story. initially i felt that jeremiad, this great chef and innovator and artist, who changed the entire industry, the way we eat in america now, that he had not been adequately credited for his
accomplishments, just made me angry. charlie: was that because he didn't -- did not get all the credit he deserved for shaping you? anthony: yes, that is true. but suddenly, he was not around anymore. history is written by the victors. it was easy for lazy journalist to have access to the people who were still around. and it was not so easy to have access -- he was knowingly written out. people knew better, they were there. charlie: what happened? panisse, then mexico? jeremiah: i did some pbs shows. 9/11, there was the earthquake and terrorists, i thought i had better go someplace where there are no hurricanes or earthquakes or terrorists. so i went to mexico, to the beach. charlie: and stayed for? jeremiah: a long time, on and
off. part of it, i thought to myself, at one point "time" magazine said i had more publicity than meryl streep. a complete exaggeration. but i thought, what is the next act? i did not want to stick around. i wanted to be alone, left alone. as greta garbo said, truly left alone. charlie: you had had enough of that? jeremiah: for the moment. my mouth wasars, stuck in a frozen smile. words,: but in your own what did you create beyond the cuisine? jeremiah: it was the lifestyle you can have at a restaurant. i saw once when i walked into a two thin in paris, model-type women with a plate of
shellfish. with theirating crab red enamel fingernails, and i thought, i want a restaurant just like that. when it left the restaurant, they were still there, digging into all that. i thought, that is sexy, beautiful, powerful. i could not wait to open a restaurant just like that. anthony: that mix of the divine and disgraceful in one place was also a new thing. , a restaurantn where one walked in, wanting to see the chef. before that, the last person you wanted to see, much less get an opinion from, was the chef. charlie: it was also an attitude about life? jeremiah: absolutely. there was the last magnificent -- the man who invented cafe society. i am not sure what cafe society
is, but i read about it a lot. he was the last one to have a private -- as a sediment documentary. he was expelled from harvard and yale for showing up drunk to the first class of the morning in a top hat and tails. he said -- my favorite thing is when he said, everything is all right with the world when you have been out on the town and you can have a hot bird and a cold bottle. that sums it up. you said we will not see the likes of this guy again. do you think something has changed? anthony: jeremiah changed it. to be the first celebrity chef, you cannot be the first again. it has been done. the restaurant business, in many has become -- almost every
restaurant you walk into has become a reflection of work pioneered by jeremiah. the menus he wrote were incredibly influential, contributing ingredients proudly to american sources by names, american lives, american products. this was new. to have that kind of tectonic effect on a culture -- how many jim hendrixes or chuck berrys can you have? charlie: but you were born to class and travel. jeremiah: right. charlie: you understood a good life. because of my parents traveling, they took me a long, which was wonderful. charlie: so you got to know all the good places. jeremiah: absolutely. starting at 45 years old in sydney. charlie: what is the
relationship? jeremiah: i went to the 40th anniversary, we sat in the middle of the dining room, which was carefully staged. but it was fun, a great evening. lydia, the director, asked her to come a couple times to be on the film. and they set up a time to film it and changed their mind at the last minute. charlie: do you know why? jeremiah: no i do not. anthony: it is an emotional issue. she feel strongly about jeremiah. i will not speak for. but i know it was an emotional conversation trying to get her to the film, which we wanted badly to happen. it is not an anti-alice waters film. charlie: and she talked about a strike. coming back to new york, you surprised people. not an overstatement.
we finished the film. there is jeremiah doing this outrageous, high profile thing that changes the entire trajectory of the story. and lydia, the director of the me up and says, what do we do? we have to shoot for another year. i said, no you won't. it will be over in a month. she really thought they would have to shoot for another month for this to possibly work. i knew right away. charlie: how did you know right away? anthony: i had friends well familiar with the play. i am a cynical guy who has been in the business long time. charlie: a recipe for disaster? jeremiah, what i knew about him, is all the
fabulousness and glamour. you say about tavern on the green, it is never going to be that. if you want to bring your grandmother out for her birthday, you go there. not all of your friends will see you. jeremiah: i have a fatal attraction for the slim. -- slim chance. it was a dangerous adventure. was very often stupid enough to step up and take a swing at it. go around theow world making speeches and talking about life and class and what turns you on. -- if somebody came around and said, do i have an idea, do i have a place, do i have the perfect situation, are you all ears? jeremiah: yes, especially if it
is on the amalfi coast with mario batali. people kept asking me, what next? finally, i ran out of answers. i said, the mlc coast with mario coast. -- the amalfi with a mario batali. completely fictitious. charlie: but you would do that, go to the amalfi coast and open a restaurant and say, i was born to open this last case. everyone should look for a last act. i am 75 in a couple days, by definition, it is the last act. there is a little bar on the beach. i was sitting there last year and said, it was a little bar, this big. booze,und system, great
and sand. i said, don't you have an umbrella? some guy comes out of the jungle, he cut down a banana tree and said, this is your umbrella. that was my second moment. i said, i have to have a restaurant like this. a beach bar, i might do. the perfect ingredients, simply done, great music, a banana tree. charlie: what is the attraction between them two of you? anthony: initially, admiration. oweremiah's -- to knw jeremiah's story. so many stories of the celebrity chef are about the neglected or abused child. however jeremiad chooses to describe his childhood moving ,rom ocean liner to the plaza he was alone. left completely alone, to his
only friends, waiters, room service waiters, cooks and hotel staff. which i theorize is part of his hization of the beautiful appointments and flatware and what makes that life attractive. he is a fascinating character. it is an incredible story, a fascinating character. artist.onged these are things that appeal strongly to me. [indiscernible] a charming and endlessly interesting person to be around. worseah: can you imagine people to bring up a child than hotel and restaurant staff? [laughter] jeremiah: you do not have to answer that. i admire tony because the intelligence is massive. his courage is massive.
and he can say things extemporaneously. he can say things, like that, that while me -- wow me completely. a blogger came out and said, tony, what is the best eating in the world? where should i go? tony said, go to tokyo and drop acid. i said, i have to learn how to do that. i admire him tremendously. you are a great man. charlie: there is also integrity. jeremiah: absolutely. anthony: i am really embarrassed now. jeremiah: when i saw the ad for the new show in puerto rico, i thought, that man is unbelievable. how could he get the puerto rico after the hurricane and do a show and get it on the air? anthony: well, right before the hurricane. charlie: it is really incredible what they have done down there. it was devastated, is
devastated, still without power in most of the country. anthony: he went straight there, he had no support staff, no plan, no authorization in place or logistical framework. he just went down and figured, i will put hands on whatever food is there in whatever condition it is and i will turn it into a hot cooked meal and distributed as widely as i can. it grew quickly to the point where he served first one million, then 2 million. he has fed more hot meals than fema, through this entirely private enterprise. it is an extraordinary thing and comes from the heart. charlie: i want to show a couple things, let's go to number three. take a look, this is you talking with others about the return to the profession. here it is. who has beenguy basically out of the profession
as a working chef for 15 years. never operated a restaurant in new york city. it is something you would see in a movie but never happen in real life. >> yet, here he is, finally coming to new york. i think you have to be excited. >> my hope is that it will be a home run. do i think it will happen? i think there is a chance it will. >> stars like to go underground. it was there i do not know how long, but not many years. then he disappeared without a trace. there is clearly unfinished business. stillt quote from proust, work while you still have the light. i wanted to work while the light was still on. charlie: work while you still have the light. jeremiah: proust laying in bed, writing. i wanted to see if my light was still on. charlie: but you still believe it is on? jeremiah: yes, but you have to
test yourself occasionally. what is the fun and lying in bed and must you are writing the world's best novel? charlie: all the things we said about you, white is interesting, isn't there something within you to seece to see -- wants -- one masterful effort for a great final chapter? anthony: i do not need that, i honestly do not. i am not hungry for that. charlie: but it is not for you, it is for him. [laughter] anthony: what i like to see jeremiah do that? charlie: or not? anthony: i would like jeremiah to be happy. but it is the orson welles syndrome. when you have made "citizen kane," you do not have to apologize for anything else in your life. charlie: it is what he knows, he does, he is.
it is not in trying to talk yourself, but it is him wanting to paint with new colors. compassionate human being, who knows the restaurant business, the price to be paid for being the best, much less the best again is too high for anyone to bear. especially in the restaurant business. i would hope for the beach bar, the modest osteria on the amalfi coast. i think that would be quite the accomplishment. and a good life. charlie: and a good place to be. where are you now in terms of adventure for the season? of the: i am about 1/4 way through shooting seasons consecutively. i am between many travels. between -- and worldwide --
uruguay. and a book. charlie: a memoir? anthony: essays. charlie: about life, all the -- if you have been suddenly you needed to go away for a year, where would you go? jeremiah: that is a good one. maybe spain, maybe saint sebastian, in spain. it is a grown-up city, fantastic food. centrally located the paris and rome, which is nice. that would not be a bad place to be for a year. you for coming. great to see you. i remind audiences, "jeremiah tower: the last magnificent sunday, september 12 at 9:00 a.m.. thank you for joining us. ♪
