Midsommar

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.

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.
