On the 78th episode of Piecing It Together, film-maker Joe Black joins me for one of our most awaited movies of the year, Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie and set against 1969 Hollywood on the eve of the Charles Manson murders, it’s a film that plays with expectations and leaves you with a lot to think about. Puzzle pieces include Hail, Caesar!, Tropic Thunder, American Psycho and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
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.
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.
