On the 122nd episode of Piecing It Together, David Quinones joins me to talk about yet another movie that critiques Capitalism (I’m sensing a theme here), Netflix’s The Platform. It’s a crazy movie about a 300 story prison in which prisoners must survive by scavenging from a levitating food platform that travels down from the top to the bottom. Puzzle pieces include Snowpiercer, mother!, The Machinist and Cube.
On the 98th episode of Piecing It Together, Bee Garner joins me for a Robert Pattinson reunion of sorts (she previously was on the High Life episode) with our conversation about Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse (also starring Willem Dafoe). This A24 film starts at crazy and just goes off the rails from there, masterfully acted and shot in gorgeous black & white. Puzzle pieces include The Shining, Persona, Eraserhead and Step Brothers.
