On the 6th installment of our Missing Pieces series, Joe Black joins us for the absolute mind-trip that is Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales. Is it a biblical story? Does anything make sense? Do pimps commit suicide? All of this and more are discussed on this extensive breakdown of this sort-of cult classic. Puzzle pieces include Star Wars, They Live, Demolition Man and Idiocracy.
On the 131st episode of Piecing It Together, Bee Garner joins me for a fantastic sci-fi mystery that kind of came out of nowhere. The Vast Of Night, out now on Amazon Prime, is like a modern Twilight Zone episode with a great script and wonderful performances. Puzzle pieces include War Of The Worlds, the Before Trilogy, Evil Dead and Goodfellas.
On the 115th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman joins us to talk about one of his favorite filmmakers, Guy Ritchie and his new film The Gentlemen. A return to his crime film roots, The Gentlemen is a sometimes problematic but always fun classic crime romp. Puzzle pieces include Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Sexy Beast, Seven Psychopaths and The Player.
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.
