EP. 313 — Moon

This week Paul and Amy’s clones are breaking down the 2009 film, Moon, starring Sam Rockwell and directed by Duncan Jones. But first things first, honoring our Oscars bet, Paul announces his removal of the film Intolerance from the Paul and Amy Institute list, much to Amy’s chagrin. Then, Paul and Amy dig into Moon, it being a “holy shit” movie in 2009, ponder how and what clones remember, and finally Amy makes the connection between this movie and space’s darling George Clooney and the hair-cutting device, Flowbee.


Next week, Paul & Amy are talking about Norman Jewison’s film Jesus Christ Superstar! Check out this week’s spotlight episode from the Unspooled archives, High Noon:
