Hereditary

Z (Featuring Josh Bell)

On the 129th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins us again (twice in one week, third this month!) to talk about a film from Las Vegas based filmmaker Brandon Christensen. Z starts off squarely in the creepy kid with an imaginary friend horror sub-genre and then takes some unexpected turns. Puzzle pieces include The Babadook, New Nightmare, The Omen and Drop Dead Fred.

Midsommar (Featuring Josh Bell)

On the 71st episode of Piecing It Together, film-critic Josh Bell joins me for one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Ari Aster’s sophomore effort, Midsommar. It’s an insane trip into the Swedish countryside filled with lots of strangeness and an excellent central performance by Florence Pugh. Puzzle pieces include mother!, Dogville, The Witch and the films of Wes Anderson.

The Beast (Featuring Josh Bell)

On the 26th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Josh Bell and I discuss The Beast, a local feature from Las Vegas-based filmmakers Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf. The Beast originally screened at film festivals under the name Rabbit Days before picking up distribution and getting the name change. It’s a crazy, mind-trip of a movie about a play director who lures some guests to his home with the promise of great opportunity, but what they find when they arrive goes from weird to bad to much worse. Puzzle pieces include The House on Haunted Hill, The Invitation, Mullholand Drive and Waiting For Guffman.
