SHOWNOTES: Greetings to all cinephiles everywhere! On this pre-break episode of Collateral Cinema, we decided to focus on something decidedly more light-hearted after our anniversary episode, so we threw on Monty Python and the Holy Grail, rolled up some blunts, and dove straight into the absurdist humor, political and religious satire, witty and memorable dialogue, outrageously funny and legendary scenes, amazingly well-acted performances, and highly original direction by Gilliam and Jones. We also cover the themes of existential absurdism, and recap how Holy Grail laid the groundwork for many generations of comedians and writers that make up modern comedy, and also go off on some tangents of our own! So grab your favorite smoke, charge up thy holy hand grenade, and come with us, as we celebrate this important and seminal film!

Collateral Cinema is on iTunes, Chill Lover Radio, and wherever else you get your podcasts. Also, find us on Patreon; we will have exclusive full-length commentaries on our favorite movies soon!
