EP. 193.5 — The Last Picture Show (Re-Release)

In honor of Peter Bogdonavich’s passing, Unspooled is re-releasing this episode from the Unspooled archives. We’ll be back with a new episode this Thursday.

 

Amy & Paul travel deep into the heart of 1971’s Texan coming-of-age story The Last Picture Show! They ask who the film’s true protagonist is, marvel at the murderer’s row of incredible actors, and wonder if this was the key inspiration for the boom of sex comedies to follow. Plus: writer/director Peter Bogdanovich himself joins Amy to discuss The Last Picture Show, and what separates modern films from the classics.
