On the 109th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me for the first episode of 2020, a movie that was probably my #1 most anticipated of 2019… Uncut Gems. After the Safdie Brothers blew my mind with their film 2017 film Good Time, they return with an anxiety inducing story set in the NYC diamond district starring Adam Sandler. Puzzle pieces include Punch Drunk Love, Requiem For A Dream, Boiler Room and California Split.
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.
