On the 77th episode of Piecing It Together, film-critic Josh Bell joins me for the hilarious dark comedy The Art of Self-Defense from writer/director Riley Stearns. It stars Jesse Eisenberg as a man who gets attacked and decides to learn to defend himself by taking karate classes… But the world of karate ends up being much different than he expected. Puzzle pieces include Fight Club, Napoleon Dynamite, The Foot Fist Way and Office Space.
On the 13th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Ryan Daugherty and I reunite, just as Tommy Wiseau & Greg Sestero of The Room do for this second volume in the Best F(r)iends saga. Best F(r)iends Volume 2 is a completely different movie than the first one, and is a finale to the story that answers some questions, raises more, and is another insane ride to add to the Tommy Wiseauniverse. Puzzle pieces (inspirations) include the films of the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino, Psycho, Adaptation and Saw.
