Porco Rosso

Unspooled #306.2 May 18, 2022

Paul & Amy take to the skies for 1992’s Hayao Miyazaki aeronautic adventure Porco Rosso! They learn about Miyazaki’s history and fascination with airplanes, discuss the meaning of the hero’s pig-headed curse, and get deep into porcine anatomy. Plus: How do the American actors do with the dub?


Next week, we’re taking a detour but staying in flight with the original Top Gun!
