Description

In Season 1 of Unspooled, actor & comedian Paul Scheer and film critic Amy Nicholson watched every film on the AFI's Top 100 films list. Now, they are building their own list of movies worthy of being immortalized and blasted into space, investigating wildly diverse areas of film through miniseries on topics like horror movies, documentaries and romantic comedies. Along the way, they'll dissect iconic scenes, spotlight their favorite characters, and talk to some of the actors and directors who worked on these classics.

Stand and Deliver

Amy & Paul stand for 1988's rousing math class drama Stand And Deliver! They ask if this is the first major 'indie' film, learn how Edward James Olmos crafted his commanding performance as Jaime Escalante, and investigate whether the real students depicted cheated on their exam. Plus: Lou Diamond Phillips explains how he got cast as Angel, and why poker requires top-notch math skills.   This is the second episode of our "Back To School" miniseries; next week’s film is The 400 Blows!
