The Beta Test (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 213th episode of Piecing It Together, David Quinones joins me to talk about Jim Cummings’ third feature, The Beta Test. A very of the moment story about a Hollywood agent who has a breakdown after a mysterious sexual encounter… Yep, it sounds like a Jim Cummings movie to me. Puzzle pieces include Punch-Drunk Love, Barton Fink, The Player and Under The Silver Lake.

Bo Burnham: Inside (Featuring Jason Harris)

On the 187th episode of Piecing It Together, Jason Harris from Awesome Movie Year joins me to talk about Bo Burnham’s new comedy special Inside. We’ve never covered a comedy special before, but this unique piece that Burnham made by himself during the pandemic feels more like an experimental feature film than a comedy special. Puzzle pieces include Eighth Grade, Slacker, The Social Dilemma and Synecdoche New York.

The Empty Man (Featuring Darryl Armstrong)

On the 177th episode of Piecing It Together, Darryl Armstrong from Rise Up Daily and the CyberShorts Film Festival joins me to talk about a movie that’s already proving to be a modern cult classic, The Empty Man. “Dumped” in theaters during the pandemic by a studio that had no idea what to do with it, The Empty Man is a big horror movie with a lot of interesting, if somewhat messy ideas. Puzzle pieces include Seven, Alien, Kill List and The Happening.

The Kid Detective (Featuring Josh Bell)

On the 165th episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined again by Josh Bell from Awesome Movie Year to talk about my favorite movie that I’ve seen so far this year… The criminally underrated The Kid Detective. Released to theaters only amid the pandemic and finally out on VOD, it stars Adam Brody as a guy who used to be the town’s cute kid detective, now faced with his first real, grown-up murder case. Puzzle pieces include The Big Lebowski, Inherent Vice, Under The Silver Lake and Mystery Team.

Under The Silver Lake (Featuring Bee Garner)

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.
