This episode is the first of three to dive into features from our newly redesigned September-October issue, which asks “What Is Cinema Now?”  Shonni Enelow, author of Method Acting and Its Discontents: On American Psycho-Drama and assistant professor of English at Fordham University, wrote a feature about an emerging trend in contemporary American acting, characterized by restraint and withholding emotion. Digital Editor Violet Lucca was joined by Enelow and regular contributor Ashley Clark to discuss the article as well as explore changing trends in training and conceptions of what makes an actor (or performance) great.
