The Kid Detective (Featuring Josh Bell)

On the 165th episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined again by Josh Bell from Awesome Movie Year to talk about my favorite movie that I’ve seen so far this year… The criminally underrated The Kid Detective. Released to theaters only amid the pandemic and finally out on VOD, it stars Adam Brody as a guy who used to be the town’s cute kid detective, now faced with his first real, grown-up murder case. Puzzle pieces include The Big Lebowski, Inherent Vice, Under The Silver Lake and Mystery Team.

Under The Silver Lake (Featuring Bee Garner)

On the 61st episode of Piecing It Together, Bee Garner from Filmotomy and JumpCut Online joins me to talk about the polarizing Under The Silver Lake. After an iffy premiere at Cannes, distributor A24 got cold feet, allowing it to leak online, then delaying it over and over until David Robert Mitchell’s follow-up to It Follows was dumped to VOD. Which sucks. Because it’s a cult classic in the making. Puzzle pieces include The Big Lebowski, They Live, Burn After Reading and Rear Window.

The Beach Bum (Featuring Joe Black)

On the 55th episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black joins me to discuss Harmony Korine’s latest piece of cinematic insanity, The Beach Bum, starring Matthew McConaughey, Isla Fisher and Snoop Dogg. Joe called this unconventional but hilarious stoner-comedy “the feel great movie of the decade,” and he just might be right. Puzzle pieces include Arthur, Freddy Got Fingered, Tropic Thunder and Young Adult.

Breaking It Apart 1 – The Big Lebowski

On the 1st episode of a special episode series called Breaking It Apart, co-host Kris Krainock and I take a look not at a new movie and what movies inspired it, but at a classic movie and what movies were inspired BY it… And the first one we’re doing is the cult classic Coen Brothers’ film The Big Lebowski. The Dude. Walter. Donny. The Jesus. The Nihilists. Bunny. So many classic characters in such a beautifully complicated yet ridiculous story that blends dark comedy, modern film noir and stoners. The Big Lebowski has inspired countless films, and on this first Breaking It Apart special episode, we get into a bunch of them and what makes this film and the Coen Brothers themselves so special. Puzzle pieces include The Nice Guys, Observe and Report, Brick and In Bruges.
