On the 117th episode of Piecing It Together, Jason Harris joins me to talk about Taika Waititi’s Nazi satire Jojo Rabbit. We recorded this way back when it came out in theaters, long before it won Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars and before it came out last week on VOD. Jojo Rabbit is kind of a love it or hate it movie, but we didn’t really love it or hate it. Puzzle pieces include South Park, Pan’s Labrynth, Moonrise Kingdom and Life Is Beautiful.
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.
