On this week’s Screen Talk, Indiewire’s Eric Kohn and I cover the waterfront of fall film festivals and a rash of new titles to consider for the welcome adult film season to come.
We debate Christopher McQuarrie’s "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation" –is it the best?–and parse the intricacies of the hybrid day-and-date release of Cary Fukunaga’s "Beasts of No Nation" as well as the controversy behind the fictional David Foster Wallace movie "The End of the Tour." Will it effect its Oscar chances? And why the hell is Jason Segel being considered for supporting actor?
Next week: Locarno!
