Episode 461: Knife in the Water (1962)

Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Deighan, Spencer Parsons

We're kicking off Polish Month with a pair of films from Roman Polanski. First up we're discussing Polanski's first feature from 1962, Knife in the Water. It's about a couple, Andrej (Leon Niemczyk) and Krystyna (Jolanta Umecka), who run across an unnamed young man (Zygmunt Malanowicz) who joins them on a sailing trip.

Up next we're discussing another film with a trio of characters, Death and the Maiden (1994) which stars Sigourney Weaver as a survivor of rape and torture who may have encountered her former tormentor (Ben Kingsley).

Samm Deighan and Spencer Parsons join Mike to discuss this pair of Polanski films.
