On the 91st episode of Piecing It Together, Rico Albarracin from Always The Critic Podcast joins me to talk about the James Gray / Brad Pitt space epic Ad Astra. It just hit me that we made it through an entire 40 minute episode about this movie without saying the phrase “daddy issues.” Puzzle pieces include Event Horizon, Goodfellas, Ex Machina and Interstellar.
On the 39th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me for a second time in a row to discuss Green Book. The fantastic true story of Jazz pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and his Italian driver (Viggo Mortenson) in the 1960s shines a light on a familiar story of racial tensions that’s perfectly balanced by comedy-director Peter Farrely. Puzzle pieces include Driving Miss Daisy, The Blind Side, Little Miss Sunshine and A Bronx Tale.
