A podcast about movies and the movies that inspired them. A good movie is the result of a large number of people both in front of and behind the camera combining to create a piece of art… But what about the movies that came before that inspired those filmmakers to make the movie? On Piecing It Together we figure out what the clear (and not so clear) influences were that make up the movies we love.

Excellent show for movie lovers

I love it when I discover a great podcast, and Piecing It Together Podcast
is exactly that.

Love films? Check this show out, where it talks about the movies that inspired other movies. Great format, and host David Rosen pulls everything together nicely.
