Episode 73. Tall Tales

“Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…”

This week Alex and Jonathan discuss three movies about the act and importance of storytelling: The Princess Bride (1987), Big Fish (2003), and The Fall (2006). We discuss the various ways that stories impact our lives, crafting a plot structured around a story-within-a-story, and creating a visual representation of imagination.
