EP. 208 — The Green Knight

Paul & Amy lose their heads for 2021’s remixed medieval myth The Green Knight! They learn about the “real” King Arthur, praise Alicia Vikander’s alluring dual role in the film, and untangle director David Lowery’s knotty layers of symbolism. Plus: Breaking down the Oscars!
