Prefaced as “A True Story/A True Family”, An Exercise In Discipline – Peel is Jane Campion’s debut work as a filmmaker, an uncomfortable short film that captures a brief incident of dissent during a family’s country drive. It would go on to earn Campion the Short Film Palme d’Or at the 1986 Cannes Film Festival, making her the first woman to ever win the prestigious award. Her command as a director is on full-display in the movie with its precise shot structure and editing, an incisive narrative arc, and the careful escalation of an increasingly unnerving tone.
