With Steven Soderbergh turning to TV and "Eleanor Rigby" hitting theaters in two parts, are audiences better acquainted with long-form storytelling?

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

In the latest episode, Eric reports from the Locarno Film Festival on two movies he's enjoyed so far: "The Princess of France" and the five-and-a-half hour Filipino drama "From What Is Before." From there, the duo discuss another long-form narrative that's actually coming to U.S. theaters, the two-part version of "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby."

They also discuss Steven Soderbergh's foray into the television arena with "The Knick" and Rupert Murdoch's failed bid to acquire TimeWarner. Finally, they offer their movie picks for the week: Eric goes with Joaquim Pinto's documentary essay "What Now? Remind Me" and Anne singles out "The One I Love."
