In the latest episode, Thompson and Kohn discuss Laura Poitras’ “Citizenfour,” the acclaimed documentary on Edward Snowden that premiered last week at the New York Film Festival, and wonder if it has shaken up the Oscar race for best documentary. They also revisit the best picture race and debate whether “Birdman” or “Boyhood” currently has more moment (and whether any of that matters). With the 20th anniversary of “Pulp Fiction” upon us, Thompson recalls that movie’s role in the Oscar race two decades ago, and then the duo turn to more recommendations opening this week, including “The Book of Life” and “Listen Up Philip.”
