A lot has changed in the movie world over the past week. Last week, when Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson recorded Indiewire’s weekly Screen Talk podcast at the New York Film Festival, they had not yet seen Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies,” Danny Boyle’s “Steve Jobs” was on the verge of another big festival screening, Michael Moore’s new documentary “Where to Invade Next” still hadn’t found distribution, and the tragic death of filmmaker Chantal Akerman hadn’t happened yet. In this week’s episode, the co-hosts tackle all those topics, and also provide updates on the Oscar race for the foreign language and documentary categories.

Listen to the full episode above.
