Babyteeth (Featuring Daniel Berrios)

On the 134th episode of Piecing It Together, Daniel Berrios joins me to talk about one of the freshest, most excited debuts of 2020, Shannon Murphy’s Babyteeth. While it fits pretty squarely in the “dying teen” sub-genre of coming-of-age movies, this is a special movie and definitely has something more to say about life.

The King Of Staten Island (Featuring JC Screen Fix)

On the 133rd episode of Piecing It Together, JC from Screen Fix Podcast joins me to talk about the latest Judd Apatow film, The King Of Staten Island, starring (and partially based on the life of) Pete Davidson, out now on VOD. A slight growth in the stoner, slacker man-child Apatow collection, it was a little tough to come up with puzzle pieces, but we had a great conversation anyway. Puzzle pieces include Say Anything, Knocked Up and Garden State.

On the 125th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell stops by to talk about a stylish, unique debut from filmmaker Tayarisha Poe, the Amazon Original Selah and the Spades.
