On the 77th episode of Piecing It Together, film-critic Josh Bell joins me for the hilarious dark comedy The Art of Self-Defense from writer/director Riley Stearns. It stars Jesse Eisenberg as a man who gets attacked and decides to learn to defend himself by taking karate classes… But the world of karate ends up being much different than he expected. Puzzle pieces include Fight Club, Napoleon Dynamite, The Foot Fist Way and Office Space.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for The Art of Self-Defense and the movies we discuss!
Writer / Director – Riley Stearns
Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Imogen Poots, Alessandro Nivola
