In some ways, it’s a quiet time of year for movies. The summer has started, the first wave of big film festivals have passed, and Oscar season won’t really get rolling for another few months. At the same time, we’re halfway through 2016, which means there are a whole lot of films already released and ripe for debate. So that’s the focus of this week’s episode of Screen Talk, in which Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson compare their lists of the best movies released so far this year. Unsurprisingly, they don’t see eye to eye on all of them.
Listen to the full episode above.
