On the 25th episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Jason Harris and I discuss Eighth Grade, the sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-felt new film from A24. The film from comedian and first time writer/director Bo Burnham follows 13 year old Kayla as she deals with Eighth Grade, growing up in today’s world and the always scary onset of High School, all while continuing to grow her YouTube video series. Puzzle pieces include Welcome to the Dollhouse, American Pie, Ingrid Goes West and The Squid & The Whale.
Ingrid Goes West
On the 2nd episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Josh Bell and I discuss the new dark comedy Thoroughbreds. This Sundance 2017 hit finally got its theatrical release and is personally my favorite movie so far this year. Aside from American Psycho and Heathers (which are right on the pull-quote on the movie poster), other Puzzle Pieces mentioned include Strangers On A Train, The Witch, and Heavenly Creatures.
