It’s always tricky to get a sense for how the fall movie season will shake down, but at least now we have a better idea than we did last week. The announcement of the main slate for the 2016 New York Film Festival helps set the stage for a number of higher-profile releases jockeying for attention as awards season gathers momentum.
Meanwhile, a whole of bunch of new documentaries in the Toronto International Film Festival lineup promise to keep non-fiction achievements in the conversation.
But where to begin? Try this week’s episode of Screen Talk, in which Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson dig through both lineups and argue about which films are likely to generate attention as the fall season gets more crowded.
Listen to the full episode above.
