Hoo boy, this was a tough one folks. How to navigate the Hollywoodization of a real-life trauma with a dash of weird gender politics? Answer — less funny than usual, as we discuss Welcome to Marwen. Meanwhile, Elliott completely misunderstands the etymology of “painstaking,” Dan details the many tones of Marwen, and Stuart bestows Dan with his Looney Tunes identity.
