Peter Fenzel, Jordan Stokes, and Matthew Wrather set out on a knightly quest to overthink The Green Knight, the new art film (really, they haven’t made films this arty since the 1970s and it’s great to know they still can!) The Green Knight, as well as the source material from which it is very loosely adapted, the late-medieval alliterative poem “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.”
