Paul Scheer is a lifelong movie buff, but he's never seen many of the all time greats. On Unspooled, his team-up with film critic Amy Nicholson, he's remedying that by watching the AFI's top 100 movies of all time, to find out what makes classics like Citizen Kane and Taxi Driver so special. Paul & Amy will dissect iconic scenes, talk to artists and industry experts, and discover just how these films got made.

Customer Reviews

Great podcast!

I love Paul and Amy together on this podcast and tend to side with them on their opinions of the movies. It has me watching movies that I had no interest in the past and gets me through part of my workday on Thursday afternoons.



A fun and positive podcast that rekindled my love of film

I stumbled upon this podcast through Stitcher and I came here specifically to share how much I love this podcast. I have listened to almost every episode (there are a few movies I haven’t seen yet so I’m waiting) in less than a week. Amy and Paul bring humor, research, and a positive disposition to each episode while still presenting their personal and educated opinions on each film. I’ve recommended this podcast to quite a few friends and one point I seem to emphasize is the positive nature of these movie “reviews”, as it were. No one is being overly cynical yet when there is an issue, and I often side with Amy’s interpretation of some male-dominated films, criticism is approached in a well-tempered manner which allows for a greater overall discussion. This podcast has rekindled my love for film and discussion, and I am so grateful for it. While I studied film and literature in school it’s been such a long time since I truly enjoyed sitting down and watching movies and actually analyzing them. Now I’m chewing off everyone’s ear about Citizen Kane and Casablanca and especially A Clockwork Orange. So much love for this podcast and these wonderful hosts. The only downside here is that these are just American films and that this podcast, by nature, has an expiration date. I find myself sitting down to watch Fellini or Kurosawa and want to hear an episode of Unspooled about each film. Can not recommend enough, as many of my friends can attest.
