Chicago

Unspooled #301.3 November 24, 2021

Amy & Paul shoot up 2002’s darkly comic musical revival Chicago! They interrogate director Rob Marshall’s choice to use rapid cuts over long takes, discuss how Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones contrast perfectly with each other, and revisit a time when Oscar voters were thirsty for any musicals at all. Plus: Some of the many parodies Chicago has inspired.
