The Green Knight (Featuring Ian Ebright & Sina Dolati)

On the 196th episode of Piecing It Together, filmmakers Ian Ebright and Sina Dolati join me to discuss David Lowery’s The Green Knight from A24. Despite not really being well versed in Arthurian legends, it was one of my most anticipated films of the year due to the talent in front of and behind the camera and it did not disappoint. Puzzle pieces include The Odyssey, Gretel & Hansel, The Witch and The Revenant.

In The Earth (Featuring Amy Smith)

On the 179th episode of Piecing It Together, film critic Amy Smith from the Film For Thought Podcast joins me to talk about the latest and possibly weirdest movie from weird movie guy Ben Wheatley. It’s one of the first films to get made after the Covid-19 pandemic and taps into the anxiety we’re all still feeling a little bit. Puzzle pieces include Annihilation, Midsommar, Contagion and It Comes At Night.

The Lighthouse (Featuring Bee Garner)

On the 98th episode of Piecing It Together, Bee Garner joins me for a Robert Pattinson reunion of sorts (she previously was on the High Life episode) with our conversation about Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse (also starring Willem Dafoe). This A24 film starts at crazy and just goes off the rails from there, masterfully acted and shot in gorgeous black & white. Puzzle pieces include The Shining, Persona, Eraserhead and Step Brothers.

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.
