Ep 109: “The Shawshank Redemption”

June 16, 2020

We dig our way through Frank Darabont’s “The Shawshank Redemption” and discuss:

  • cinematography, color, camerawork, and lighting;
  • editing, the use of dissolves;
  • story & writing;
  • why Shawshank is so rewatchable;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. – Nelson Mandela

Notes & References:
Article about prison rape – clarification from the article: it’s not clear that there are actually more rapes of men than women, or more rapes of prisoners than non-prisoners”
