On the 103rd episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock returns to talk about some real cinema… Marin Scorsese’s The Irishman. The Netflix film is out today after a limited theatrical run (thank you Maya Cinemas and Eclipse Cinemas for showing it here in Las Vegas!) and stars Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. Puzzle pieces include Casino, First Reformed, You Were Never Really Here and Rashoman.
On the 101st episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black joins me to discuss Edward Norton’s passion project, Motherless Brooklyn. A throwback film noir starring Norton as a tourette’s syndrome afflicted private detective, it’s a bit of a mixed bag… But a bag that’s more good than it’s bad. Mostly. Puzzle pieces include The Untouchables, Road To Perdition, Sin City and Live By Night.
On the 38th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Kris Krainock and I get into what was apparently Steve McQueen’s life-long passion project, the female heist thriller Widows. Written by Gillian Flynn and featuring buzz-worthy performances from Viola Davis and Daniel Kaaluya, Widows has not disappointed many in the film community. But it disappointed us. Puzzle pieces include the Ben Affleck trio of Gone Girl, The Town and Live By Night, as well as Set It Off.
