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.

Some of you may remember Oscar Talk, an awards-focused podcast I did with Hitfix's Kris Tapley weekly, and later, monthly. 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. We are friendly colleagues, but you will see that he's a man of strongly held opinions-- as Kris was --and he does not like to let me get the last word!

While Kris and I came at Oscar Talk from an awards perspective, this podcast will cover a wider range of topics--when award season is upon us, Indiewire's awards writer Peter Knegt will join us, along with other guests--including Kris. In this inaugural session, Eric and I tackle the best and worst of Cannes and name a few likely Oscar contenders. We debate the merits of Cannes entries from David Cronenberg, "Maps to the Stars," and David Michod, the dystopian road movie “The Rover,” which opens this weekend. We also discuss another post-apocalyptic adventure, Bong Joon-ho's L.A. Film Fest opener “Snowpiercer." Also opening this weekend is bromantic comedy “22 Jump Street,” which I enjoyed with some quibbles, while Eric recommends two other movies opening in limited release today, “Coffee in Berlin” and “Manuscripts Don’t Burn.” 

We wind up talking about the return of Nikki Finke. Of course.
