On the 125th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell stops by to talk about a stylish, unique debut from filmmaker Tayarisha Poe, the Amazon Original Selah and the Spades. It’s a film that flips the high school movie sub-genre by blending it with an almost organized crime style story. Puzzle pieces include Brick, Donnie Brasko, Rushmore and Mean Girls.
On the 83rd episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock returns to the show to talk about one of his favorite movies of the year, the debut from writer/director Joe Talbot, The Last Black Man In San Francisco. This beautiful, surreal look at the effects of gentrification from A24 is one of the year’s best, most unique films. Puzzle pieces include The Royal Tenembaums, Do The Right Thing, The Florida Project and Atlanta.
