Picnic at Hanging Rock


How might a director dramatize the possession of forbidden knowledge? And how might the examination of a mystery simply reveal even more mysteries? Join Mike and Dan for a conversation about Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975), a horror film (you read that correctly) that reminds them of 2001, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, and Don't Look Now. So memorize that poem, take off those gloves, and give it a listen!
