On the 109th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me for the first episode of 2020, a movie that was probably my #1 most anticipated of 2019… Uncut Gems. After the Safdie Brothers blew my mind with their film 2017 film Good Time, they return with an anxiety inducing story set in the NYC diamond district starring Adam Sandler. Puzzle pieces include Punch Drunk Love, Requiem For A Dream, Boiler Room and California Split.
Requiem For A Dream
On the 42nd episode of Piecing It Together, and first of 2019, Chad Clinton Freeman joins me to check out the indie horror film Dry Blood. I had met writer/star Clint Carney last year at a film festival and thought it would be fun to check out one of his projects on the show, and Dry Blood, a cerebral horror film was the perfect opportunity, and we’ll be doing a follow-up interview with Clint Carney next week. Puzzle pieces include Evil Dead, The Shining, Requiem For A Dream and Super Troopers.
On the 18th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss In Memory Of, a crazy new independent film from the mind of Eric Stanze. Chad brought this movie to the show because as a connoisseur of all things insane independent cinema (he did create the Pollygrind Film Festival after all), Chad was a fan of Eric Stanze’s previous films and wanted to check this one out. I’m glad he did because it’s a wild movie and was a really fun one to talk about. Puzzle pieces include The Evil Dead, Easy Rider, Natural Born Killers and Requiem For A Dream.
On the 8th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss Bus Party To Hell (formerly known as Party Bus To Hell). This wild, blood soaked throwback from the Mahal Brothers and director Rolfe Kanefsky starts with a Party Bus headed to Burning Man, but everything goes off the rails when demon worshipping cannibals turn the party into a blood bath. Also, I did the theme song and a couple other songs for the soundtrack. Puzzle pieces include The Hills Have Eyes, From Dusk Till Dawn, Evil Dead 2, and Requiem for a Dream.
