    The Henry Fool Trilogy! and Jonathan Glazer's new film 'The Zone of Interest.'

    We're going a little bit out of order in our dive into the films of Hal Hartley. On this episode, we look at The Henry Fool Trilogy: Henry Fool, Fay Grim, and Ned Rifle. The first two films, especially, constitute Hartley's apotheosis. We also discuss Jonathan Glazer's new film 'The Zone of Interest,' a haunting, important film (despite what Manohla Dargis might say).
