The Bridge On The River Kwai

Unspooled #107 May 20, 2020

Amy and Paul cross 1957’s David Lean WWII epic The Bridge On The River Kwai! They explore the career of star Sessue Hayakawa, ask why Lean’s tyrannical methods pop up so often in the AFI 100, and compare the film to author Pierre Boulle’s other famous work “Planet Of The Apes.” Plus: responding to your comments on Goodfellas, and the passing of Fred Willard and Lynn Shelton.
