Indiewire Podcast: Is 'Inherent Vice' Too Confusing? Plus: Why 'Fury' Isn't an Oscar Contender

Screen Talk, Indiewire’s weekly podcast co-hosted by Anne Thompson and Eric Kohn, is available on iTunes. You can subscribe here or via RSS.

In the latest installment, Kohn and Thompson debate “Inherent Vice,” and whether or not it’s too confusing for its own good. (Kohn doesn’t think so, but Thompson’s unconvinced.) After discussing the movie’s Oscar prospects, the duo turn to David Ayer’s “Fury,” another movie with dicey awards season odds.

They also touch on other players in the Oscar race, including foreign language submissions as well as frontrunners “Foxcatcher” and “Boyhood,” before turning to their picks among this week’s new releases. Thompson is partial to “Whiplash,” while Kohn favors Jesse Moss’ documentary “The Overnighters” — which leads to one more debate in the episode’s closing segment.
