On the 276th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me to talk about Empire Of Light. Sam Mendes’ latest is all about his love of cinema. And about racism. And mental illness. And workplace power dynamics. And the list goes on. Puzzle pieces include Cinema Paradiso, American Beauty, Adventureland and the AMC Nicole Kidman Ad.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Empire Of Light and the movies we discuss!
