Screen Talk: A Cinephile’s Guide to Holiday Movies—and the Oscar Race

Screen Talk: A Cinephile's Guide to Holiday Movies—and the Oscar Race

Eric Kohn and I took advantage of a year-end perspective to look back on key trends of 2015, many of which we discussed on the podcast, and try to look ahead into the future. Did women move forward in Hollywood? What was the impact of the shift to digital distribution? And blockbuster "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"? 

We make some recommendations of what movies to see over the holiday.

And we take a stab at the movies we are looking forward to in 2016. Needless to say, even if Eric and I both picked "Son of Saul" as our best movie of 2015 and both want to see the Coens’ Berlin opener "Hail, Caesar!", we make wildly different picks. Let’s just say that Eric isn’t as eager to see Alexander Skarsgard in the buff as I am.
