Unspoken Truths

After three years of recording Someone Else’s Movie, I’ve noticed that there are two kinds of episodes. There are the ones where the conversation is loose and wide-ranging,  and the ones where a chosen work leads someone to explore their own identity in a more directly focused way.

This week, it’s the latter, as director Adam Garnet Jones — who made last year’s excellent Great Great Great with Sarah Kolasky — uses Jane Campion’s The Piano as a lever into his own identity, having discovered the film as a kid and bonded to it hard. (I saw it in my thirties, so my experience of it was very different.)

It’s a really good conversation; I love it when these opportunities present themselves and we can really burrow into what movies mean to people. Please enjoy it!

You can subscribe to the show on Apple PodcastsGoogle Play or Stitcher, or download it straight from the web. You know the deal. And go watch Great Great Great on iTunes; it’s really good.
