Welcome to another edition of The BW/DR Podcast: Frame 25, a new series of monthly bite-sized podcast episodes in conversation with, and sponsored by, our friends at Galerie. Each month, we’ll pick a title from Galerie’s curated library and zoom in on a single moment to better see the whole.

This month: in concert with actor Taylor Russell’s library, we’re looking at the relentlessness and romance of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch Drunk Love (2002). A movie so pretty, we just want to smash it.

For info on our upcoming live discussion (with you, for you!) on Punch-Drunk Love, please subscribe, follow the pod, sign up for our newsletter, and watch this space!
