On the 317th episode of Piecing It Together, Jason Harris joins me to talk about Asteroid City. Wes Anderson has become a bit of a polarizing filmmaker in the last decade and every new film of his gives us a chance to reevaluate what exactly he is trying to do with his oddly staged creations. Puzzle pieces include Synecdoche New York, Bergman Island, Mars Attacks and a bunch of other Wes Anderson movies.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Asteroid City and the movies we discuss!
Written by Wes Anderson
Directed by Wes Anderson
Starring Jason Schwartman, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks, Maya Hawke, Adrien Brody, Margot Robbie and lots lots more
