On the 72nd episode of Piecing It Together, Bee Garner returns to the podcast for another weird A24 film. This time we’re covering what very well may be the strangest, most difficult to crack film of the year, High Life. Claire Denis has created something unique and one-of-a-kind, and Robert Pattinson gives another amazing performance. Puzzle pieces include Moon, Under The Skin, Children of Men, and Dogtooth.
On the 24th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Chad Clinton Freeman discuss Alpha, the survival epic about the first ever “boy and his dog” from writer/director Albert Hughes. It’s a gorgeous looking movie set in 20,000BC with long, beautiful shots of the uncompromising wilderness, acted in an ancient language (with subtitles) and tells the story of the first man who ever bonded with a dog. It might not REALLY be the story of the first man and dog to bond, but it’s a great one. Puzzle pieces include Apocalypto, 300, 10,000 B.C., and Annie.
On the 10th (wow, ten episodes!) episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss A Quiet Place. This creature feature from John Krasinski in which a family must hide from blind but ultra-hearing predators was one of the big surprise hits of 2018. It stars Krasinski and Emily Blunt as well as some really cool monsters. Puzzle pieces include 10 Cloverfield Lane, Signs and The Road.
