Episode 238. We watched Swiss Army Man, a 2016 film by the Daniels, the directorial team behind Everything Everywhere All At Once! Hank is shipwrecked on an island, at the end of his rope, when a body washes up on shore. He’s able to ride the flatulent corpse back to the mainland, where the body slowly wakes back up sentience. Hank calls his new friend Manny, and teaches him what it means to be alive again, reminding him about love and all of life’s tiny joys. Using Manny’s whimsical undead powers, the two journey through the wilderness back to civilization.
