SCREEN TALK: Festival Updates, Fall Hopefuls, New Openers from Woody Allen to Zach Braff, Fox vs. Time Warner

David Fincher is back for the opening night of the New York Film Festival with Ben Affleck-starrer "Gone Girl." What folks really care about, says Indiewire's Eric Kohn on our sixth Screen Talk podcast (now on iTunes!) is that the opening night party is returning to Tavern on the Green. We talk about changes at various festivals, the movies that carry expectations as the fall award season gets under way, from Woody Allen to Zach Braff, and several movies coming out this weekend. We dig into Rupert Murdoch's attempted takeover of Time Warner.

In our fourth Screen Talk podcast, Indiewire critic Eric Kohn and I debate the (dubious) merits of Melissa McCarthy's "Tammy"--is it a bad studio movie or a bad indie movie?--and admire the virtues of Steve James' end-of-life documentary about critic Roger Ebert, "Life Itself."

Welcome to Screen Talk, Indiewire's New Weekly Podcast, with New Co-Host

Some of you may remember Oscar Talk, an awards-focused podcast I did for some years with In Contention's Kris Tapley. We said goodbye to that after the last Oscars, and now I'm starting up again with a new podcast, Screen Talk, and new producer and sparring partner, Indiewire's New York-based critic Eric Kohn.
