The Fountain

To Dust (Featuring Kris Krainock)

On the 60th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock returns with a movie we both loved and have been waiting a long time to talk about. To Dust from Director Shawn Snyder, which we saw in theaters a few months ago, finally is out on VOD. It’s the story of a Hasidic Jew whose wife dies. Grief stricken, he enlists the help of a community college professor to help him figure out what will actually, physically and biologically happen to her body when it’s buried. It’s a weird one. Puzzle pieces include A Serious Man, Election, Eraserhead and Swiss Army Man.
