On the 124th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman joins me to talk about one of my favorite movies of this very weird year… the very weird Frances Ferguson. The story of a woman who throws it all away by way of an affair with her student, it’s uncomfortable, weird and a lot of people were very offended by it… but I loved it. Puzzle pieces include To Die For, Daria, Fight Club and Orange Is The New Black.
On the 93rd episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined again by Chad Clinton Freeman and Ryan Daugherty to complete our trilogy of nerdy episodes by talking about Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. Following up our conversations on Glass and Godzilla King Of The Monsters, we take on quite possibly the most divisive movie of the year. Puzzle pieces include Taxi Driver, The King Of Comedy, Fight Club and Falling Down.
On the 78th episode of Piecing It Together, film-maker Joe Black joins me for one of our most awaited movies of the year, Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie and set against 1969 Hollywood on the eve of the Charles Manson murders, it’s a film that plays with expectations and leaves you with a lot to think about. Puzzle pieces include Hail, Caesar!, Tropic Thunder, American Psycho and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
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.
On the 44th episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined for the first time by two returning co-hosts, Ryan Daugherty and Chad Clinton Freeman for a discussion of the long awaited M. Night Shyamalan movie Glass. If you’re a nerd like us you’ve been waiting 20 years for a follow-up to Unbreakable, and after 2016’s Split, all knew it was finally coming, and now it’s here… For better or worse. Puzzle pieces include Batman V Superman, Super, Eastern Promises and Take Shelter.
