Yes, film critics Tim Grierson and Will Leitch are currently separated by an ocean (Grierson is at the Cannes Film Festival), but that doesn’t mean they can’t bring you a podcast.

They discuss three new releases: The Lobster, starring Colin Farrell as a man who must find a mate within 45 days or be transformed into an animal; Weiner, a documentary about disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s run for New York City mayorship; and Money Monster, a thriller directed by Jodie Foster and featuring a packed cast, with stars including George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

For the weekly Reboot, the guys re-watch the 1983 film The King of Comedy, starring Robert De Niro and Jerry Lewis. One G&L listener calls it “Scorsese’s most underrated film,” though the guys say they’ll be the judge of that. To hear your name on the show, leave a podcast review on iTunes and include the name of a favorite movie at the end.
