On the 204th episode of Piecing It Together, Darryl A. Armstrong joins me to talk about The Eyes of Tammy Faye, a look at the life of televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. Directed by one of my favorite comedy personas Michael Showalter, it's a film that basically hinges on a big central performance by Jessica Chastain. Puzzle pieces include Citizen Kane, Boogie Nights, Leap of Faith and Bombshell.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for The Eyes of Tammy Faye and the movies we discuss!
