Unspooled #304.3 March 16, 2022
Paul & Amy strike a chord with 1993’s Jane Campion gothic period drama The Piano! They praise Anna Paquin’s highly naturalistic child performance, puzzle over Holly Hunter’s character’s true intentions, and discuss what makes this apparently traditionalist arthouse film ‘punk rock.’ Plus: thoughts on “The Batman.”
Next week we look back on the films of 2021, and look ahead to the Oscars!
