    Chris Eigeman on "Turn the River"

    Thursday, May 8, 2008 | 2:20 PM

     

    05082008_turntheriver1.jpgBy Stephen Saito

    One of Chris Eigeman's favorite performances in his directorial debut, "Turn the River," comes from an actor who has all of three lines and plays a pimply faced donut shop employee who tells his potential customers that he already drank the coffee. It's the kind of droll one-liner that one could easily imagine rolling off Eigeman's tongue during his heyday as the quick-witted star of Noah Baumbach's "Kicking and Screaming" and Whit Stillman's trilogy of "Metropolitan," "Barcelona" and "The Last Days of Disco." But "Turn the River" isn't the intellectual yukfest one might expect from an actor with a reputation for snark and smarts, but rather the heartfelt character study of Kailey (Famke Janssen), a mother forced to give up her son Gulley (Jaymie Dornan), who attempts to raise enough money through hustling at pool and poker to steal him away from his father. It's an ill-conceived plan, to be sure, and Eigeman doesn't pull any punches in its execution, nor does he shortchange any of the group of fine character actors he's assembled, including friends like Matt Ross ("Big Love") and Marin Hinkle ("Once and Again") or veterans Rip Torn and Lois Smith. Eigeman recently sat down to talk about his first film as a writer/director, how pool scenes are like sex scenes, and the moment when he realized he was no poolhall hustler himself.

    How did "Turn the River" come about?

    I'd written a few little pieces of it, a couple of scenes here and there. I did a job with Famke as an actor called "The Treatment," and as she and I were working together, it was a really good experience. I'd never known [Famke] before — she has a great cowboy spirit about her, both in her life and in her work. There's a fearlessness about her. After that film finished, I went back to writing ["Turn the River"]. I wrote one of the bench scenes between the mother and the son, and it was incredibly evident I was writing for Famke — there's something very defining about her, and it became a real path through the woods, having that as a sort of lodestone.

    The interesting thing to me about the film was that it seemed more interested in the characters than the story it was telling. Were you conscious of that?

    I'm a Jesuit when it comes to structure, but I really think that structure is defined by character. Everything serves that master. People will ask me "Why did Kailey do this?" I always wanted that if I turned the film off halfway through, the audience's reaction would be "Well, I really loved Kailey and I really loved Gulley and I really loved Kailey and Gulley together, but I think this is a terrible plan of hers." And that was something that propelled me through.

    05082008_turntheriver2.jpgDid you feel like this was the right time in your career to direct your first film?

    I don't think there's ever a great time, but a lot of this was born out of the fact that when I was just starting out, working with directors like Whit [Stillman] and Noah Baumbach, those scripts were bulletproof. Those were great scripts, and I got incredibly spoiled by that because as you go down the road in all sorts of mediums, you aren't going to have those great scripts all the time. So I set about trying to write as well as I could, and that would be defined by every actor in the movie being able to do good work and to have fun.

    This is a little bit of a technical question, but I remember listening to the commentary on "The Hustler" DVD and they were talking about how hard it was to shoot the pool scenes. Was that a challenge for you?

    Oh. My. God. Are you kidding? It was truly  terrifying. There are a number of films out there with pool, but the two biggies are "The Hustler" and "The Color of Money," [and] it's interesting, you think of "The Hustler" as being wall-to-wall pool, but actually there isn't that much. There's a lot at the top and there's a little at the bottom and that's about it. There's a huge middle section. I knew that wasn't going to work for us because that can take an incredibly long time. The other way is "Color of Money" and we could't do [that] because we just couldn't afford it. Scorsese shot every possible point of view on that pool table, [with] those huge, long tracking shots with Tom Cruise singing "Werewolves of London" in synch to the music and sinking three shots. We didn't have the support structure to try and pull something like that off, so we found a third way which was very controlled and very loose.

    The controlled was we built maybe 20 or 30 pool shots — we took pictures of them, put them in a notebook and named them: Ann, Betty, whatever...all the way down. So we had these shots, and the last shot that Famke makes — Zelda — and we knew that was the shot that we would end all the pool with. Famke got good enough and John [Juback, who plays Duncan, the pool czar of the picture] is good enough that we could just let them play. We'd shoot 360 degrees and let them go.

    I was always interested in how much I had to show. It can get really uninteresting watching balls fall into pockets — it's a lot like sex scenes, here [what's] going is infinitely less interesting than [the expressions on] people's faces.

    This might be my naïve view of the films you were making with Whit Stillman and Noah Baumbach, but this one had a similar feel of "let's get together and make a movie in New York," which it seems fewer films have these days. Has that changed over time?

    05082008_turntheriver3.jpgIt has absolutely changed and I genuinely miss it. I worked very hard to bring these people together [on this film] and to try to form a tribe for at least a little while. To me, I look back on Whit's films, on Noah's, on "Kicking and Screaming," [and] not only is that a movie I really like, but the experience of making it was so enjoyable. I never wanted to just be an actor for hire — that's actually why I liked doing television a lot. Doing a year on "Gilmore Girls" was fun because I liked the tribe [aspect] of it. It's like extreme sports — at this budget level, you're either going to cling to each other with affection and hope for salvation or you're going to knife each other. Somebody's going to get poked in the eye. In this case, it was the former, which is great — if my next shoot is half as enjoyable as this one was, I will die a happy man.

    This film has already surprised some people because of the kinds of characters you played as an actor. What have you made of the expectations that people have of you and the reception this film has received?

    Look, if you're an actor and the first movie you do, you're wearing a cummerbund and cracking wise in a Noël Coward template, that is what people are going to assume and you can't blame them. But yeah, I know. All the pool stuff came about because when I got out of college, I was shooting a lot of pool and thought I was good. I came to New York, and when I wasn't parking cars to make money, I was shooting pool and getting my ass handed to me by people who were smarter, better players and very crafty about taking money out of my pocket. I still play, but I won't play for money anymore. It's important to know, if you're in the land of gambling, what you're good at. [laughs]

    This was during the time of New York City when there were some great poolhalls that are gone now — you could easily spend a day shooting pool against people who were kind of famous. There was a poolhall called Chelsea Billiards which isn't there anymore, but it was the last great room in Manhattan and I lost to this one guy so many times [it] drove me crazy. He was incredibly good, but I didn't realize how good until I was out a lot of money and it turns out it's this guy named Kid Delicious, and he just wrote a book about what it is to be a pool hustler. That's where all that came from.

    Are you planning to go back to acting any time soon?

    I think basically I am an actor. Sometimes I'm an actor who's writing and sometimes an actor who's directing, but I think if I'm forced to fill out a form for my tax return, actor is the first thing I write down. I try not to fill out forms, but when I do, actor is what I write down.

    HEADLINE: The Amazing Adventures of Kid Delicious And Bristol Bob;
    With a handsome sidekick setting him up, Danny Basavich, a.k.a. Kid Delicious, posed as a bumbling slob and won a small fortune in a four-year pool-hustling odyssey. Now the Kid is a rising star on the pro tour

    BYLINE: L. JON WERTHEIM

    BODY:
    His ample belly suspended over the table, Danny Basavich stared at the configuration of balls as though peering into a microscope. The game was nine ball, and his shot verged on the impossible: a 90-degree "cut" to hit the 1 ball into the corner pocket, as the cue ball hugged the opposing rail. It was nearly 2 a.m. in the converted ballroom of a nondescript hotel in Toledo, and in a quarterfinal match of the Glass City Open, Basavich was "on the hill"--as they say in pool, only one game from defeat--his opponent up nine games to six in a set to 10.

    With an authoritative crack that pierced the chatter and the clinking of beer bottles, Basavich fired the cue ball, garnishing it with the perfect amount of draw--a violation of physics for any other player hitting a ball on the rail. It sped through the cluster of balls and collided with its intended target. The 1 ball fell into the corner pocket with a sharp ka-tunk. It was a brilliant piece of shotmaking, and the railbirds on the makeshift bleachers whistled and shook their heads. "Dee-licious," the tournament's abundantly tattooed security guard said aloud.

    With that shot Basavich--a.k.a. Kid Delicious--entered the zone, that blissful state in which nothing distracts him from running racks. Not the stakehorses in satin baseball jackets who'd bet big bucks on him in the Calcutta. Not the young blonde hottie in the red sweatshirt a few rows back, conspicuously tossing her hair. Not the dark clouds of depression that, for years, had rolled in with little advance warning, once keeping him in bed for six weeks. Not the awkwardness he occasionally feels about tipping the scales at more than 300 pounds.

    Shrouded in gauzy light, sweat dripping profusely from his forehead, Basavich potted four straight racks with a brilliant flourish to win 10-9. After the 9 ball had disappeared from view, his vanquished opponent, 2003 U.S. Open champion Jeremy Jones, smashed his stick against the table in frustration. Basavich, a 5'10" butterball of energy, accepted a round of handshakes, high fives and backslaps before repairing to the crowded hotel bar for a few rounds of beer and tequila shots.

    "I'm buying," he announced in a voice that sounds like Wolfman Jack's with a New Joisy accent. By then the sun was nearly up.

    Basavich slept into the afternoon, returned to the tables that evening and won again. In the Glass City final the following day, Nov. 14, with television cameras following him around the table and the bleachers packed, he finally had an off-day, falling 10-6 to Charlie (the Hillbilly) Bryant, a square-jawed Texan. But it had been a hell of a tournament for Basavich, who, in every sense, is fast becoming professional pool's biggest sensation. Playing against 95 of the premier players in the world, Basavich, 26, had finished second and earned one of his heftiest professional purses.

    He was too thrilled to dwell on the reality that his week's earnings of $ 5,000 would've made for a mediocre night a few years ago, when Kid Delicious was among the most successful high-rolling hustlers that pool has ever known.

    they say that aptitude in pool is a sure sign of a misspent youth. But pool was the salvation of Danny Basavich. A portly kid often beset by the depression that ran in his family (Danny's paternal grandfather is in a mental institution), he had it rough his first year in high school. He was harassed by classmates and didn't get much sympathy from teachers. "When he started giving me his possessions--his tennis rackets, his bowling balls--that's when I got the most shaken up," says his father, Dave. "I didn't let him out of my sight for two weeks." Fearing that their son might commit suicide, Dave and his wife, Doris, enrolled Danny in counseling and psychotherapy, but those sessions did little good, according to Dave.

    At 15 Danny's sanctuary was Elite Billiards, a 25-table hall near his house in Milltown, N.J. Everything about the place appealed to him: the sound of maple cues colliding with hard plastic balls, the stale smells that lingered in the air, the menagerie of characters with faintly menacing nicknames like Frank the Exterminator and Neptune Joe. Danny had a native talent for the game, an inherent grasp of the geometry and possibility in every shot. But beyond that, cracking balls and winning games and speaking the lingo all imbued in him the ineffable quality that every teenage boy seeks. It made him feel cool.

    At first he rode his bike to Elite on weekends and played for hours, winning enough to take a cab home. In the early 1990s, after he dropped out of high school in the first week of his sophomore year, he became an Elite regular, spending as many as 16 hours a day refining his skills and, just as important, picking up the finer points of the hustle.

    Kid Delicious--that marvelous nom de felt--was coined when Danny was 17. Late one night he sauntered into Chelsea Billiards in New York City, looking as clueless and slovenly as he could, both his gut and his money hanging out of his pants. It was all a hustle, of course. He put down $ 1,000 to play Kid Vicious, the best player in the house. Then he bet $ 3,200, the rest of his stash, with the railbirds. As he ran rack after rack, one of the vultures whooped, "That boy ain't Kid Vicious, but he's Kid Delicious!" Basavich assumed it was just another crack about his weight, but he didn't much care, not when he strutted out of the joint at 6 a.m. with those 84 C-notes. Kid Delicious it was.

    Pool Lessons by Delicious

    Kid Delicious will come to you: 732.580.6502

    Successful men rarely deign to advise hopeful neophytes -- Henry Kravis won't teach you how to make money, and Mel Gibson won't teach you how to hate Jews. For pool lessons from a man who hasn't forgotten the little guy, call Danny "Kid Delicious" Basavich.

    Thrillist - Kid DeliciousA Jersey native, Kid's just now busting into the big time: a #1 tour ranking, a movie deal, and a just-published book about his career as "the last great American pool hustler" (though you'll find mediocre foreign hustlers equally adept at grifting your money). Sign up for one of his three-hour lessons, and before teaching you basics like cue leveling and stance, Kid'll suss out your level of skill/fecklessness. Then it's on to higher learning, like stroke speed, playing for position, and advanced english (lesson #1: dangle a modifier, and your would-be mark'll shank you).

    Despite his status, Kid charges only $150 per extended session, and'll trek to any borough as long as you pay for table fees and travel expenses -- as the ultimate sign of integrity is not letting pride get in the way of free bus fare.
