There’s so much great stuff at the multiplexes these days that Rick and Simon need to zoom out and take on a set of major directors one by one, tackling their newest features. First up – and the subject of the most debate from critics – is Charlie Kaufman’s ambitious and troubled directorial debut Synecdoche, New York. Then we’ve got Clint Eastwood’s new Oscarbait historical drama Changeling, starring Angelina Jolie and John Malkovich. On the lighter side of things, we have veteran director Mike Leigh taking a turn for the light with his delightful new film Happy-Go-Lucky. Finally, we have Kevin Smith, whose newest comedy, Zack and Miri Make a Porno (or, as it’s known in Philadelphia, Zack and Miri Make a [Bleep]) opens wide this week. We tackle all of ’em. Oh, and don’t forget the Podcast Awards, folks!
