but first, i have to say, i have no idea why i'm here. >> seth: okay. >> i have never been a guest on a late night show in my life. >> seth: uh-huh. >> i'm like the worst late night guest. [ laughter ] i'm that late night guest that says if you're optimistic, you haven't been paying attention. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> i'm that late night guest that says, the reason you're still up watching this is because you can't sleep, and you've lost hope. [ laughter ] >> seth: well, for those people -- for those people. [ laughter ] but there is -- i'm going to say something here. here's why i'm optimistic. i think, like a lot of people, i had just assumed that for your previous work you had been academy award nominated, but this is your first time. now that you have it for the first time, are awards something you care about? were you happy to hear? >> well, you know, it's interesting cause you set out early in life not to be -- not to judge yourself by the awards of others. and then something like this
1:24 am
happens. and you get very confused. [ laughter ] >> seth: have you thought about what kind of speech you might give? >> no, i have not. >> seth: that's for the best. try not to do what you did when you sat down here and talk about -- [ laughter ] but this is -- for those who haven't seen the film, it truly was one of my favorite of last year. this is ethan hawke plays a -- a man of religion who goes through a crisis of faith. is this something that you had been thinking about writing for a long time? >> uh -- i had been thinking about not writing it for a long time. almost 40 or 50 years, i've been thinking about not writing it. and then finally i just got too old, and i decided i have to write it. >> seth: it is -- you know, it's interesting. because it's very much of this time in that, you know, we just had a state of the union where the president did not mention climate change, which many would argue is the biggest issue facing humanity. not just this country, but
1:25 am
humanity. that is a theme in this film. is that -- did you do a lot of research, or is that something that was just in your head anyway? >> well, i mean, it's all out there on the internet. you don't have to spend many hours before you, you know, receive a very, very dire and bleak view of the planet's future. but what makes it sort of interesting is that this discussion that mankind has been having for 100,000 years. you know, where are we going? was always a theoretical one. and now it's starting to look like a practical one. >> seth: you know, ethan hawke -- his character keeps a journal. that obviously was a theme in "taxi driver," which was your first screenplay. which is -- you really came out of the gates pretty hot there. [ cheers and applause ] did it feel as though you were returning to a theme when you did that? >> i didn't think so at first. but at some point i realized that the poltergeist of "taxi driver" of travis bickle had slipped into the room and was watching me. and "taxi driver" is a very
1:26 am
young man's film. and "first reformed" is an old man's film. you know, they're both very angry. but they're not from the same time frame. >> seth: yeah. you see the anger changes as you get older? you can still be angry about things, but in a different way? >> anger -- well, usually you start to learn to live with it, you know. [ laughter ] when you're young, you know, there is a real chance of self harm. and by the time you get my age, you don't care. [ laughter ] >> seth: you -- you did not see your first movie until you were 17 years old. i mean, it's incredible that you would reach that point in your life, not see a movie and yet have it be your career. are you still shocked by that? >> yes. i came from a church background where no one saw movies. so, i wasn't anything special. but then, you know, along came the 60s and the european cinema
1:27 am
of the 60s. and it was like the world was on fire with smart movies. and i got swept up. >> seth: you made this movie in 20 days. and that must feel completely different to where movies were when you first started in the early '70s to now. do you feel like this is a good time to be a creator of a film? >> well, the good news is, anybody can make a movie. anybody. you, right there, with your phone. the bad news is, nobody can make a living at it. [ laughter ] >> seth: here's that patented optimism. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> but it -- but it is an exciting time to make movies. so many people who were kept out of the arts are now in. i mean, you know, minorities and sexual orientation, blah, blah, blah. you know, we -- in the past, we always kept those people from making movies. now everybody is making movies.
1:28 am
>> seth: yes, that's really exciting. and it's a great time to see representation of film like that. you know, an interesting piece of casting you did is ethan hawke, who is exceptional, and i really believe he should be nominated for an oscar, as well. but cedric the entertainer plays, i guess, a pastor of a -- >> mega church. >> seth: how did you come to find cedric? >> well, we have such a propensity to stereotype mega preachers. you know, we've got a box for them, and we're going to fit them in that box, no matter what. and i said, you know, i need to find an actor they can't put in a box. and i said, you know -- and cedric is so charming. and i was at a film festival with him once, and you could tell when people spotted him. because their faces would light up. >> seth: yeah. >> and so, he kept me from -- he kept the audience from putting him in that box. >> seth: it was great. and the film is wonderful. and congratulations. my fingers are crossed for you, and i really hope -- >> oh, thank you. >> seth: it would making my night if i saw you give a speech
