EP. 402.0 — Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles
Amy & Paul peel the layers of Chantal Akerman’s minimalist homebound masterwork Jeanne Dielman! They praise the way Akerman trains her audience to pay attention to tiny details, debate whether the controversial ending was necessary, and ask what the film’s recent ascendancy to the top of Sight & Sound’s greatest films list says about how we live today. Plus: The truth about Tony Orlando and Dawn.
Next week, tune in as we discuss Blue Velvet! You can join the conversation for this series on the Unspooled Facebook Group at
