On the 217th episode of Piecing It Together, film critic Jay Ledbetter joins me for a wild one… Sean Baker’s latest Red Rocket is about a fading porn star played by Simon Rex who tries to start over. He just may be the worst character in any movie this year, and the film is fascinating. Puzzle pieces include Good Time, Lolita, American History X and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for Red Rocket and the movies we discuss!
