It’s Veterans Day on Thursday, and inspired by the holiday and the men and women it honors, this week’s IFC News podcast turns to films about life after combat. We look at the differences and recurring themes of representations of on-screen veterans from “The Best Years of Our Lives” to “Stop-Loss.”

This week’s keyword game giveaway is the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary “The Two Escobars,” which comes out on DVD tomorrow — four winners will each get a new copy. The film, directed by Jeff and Michael Zimbalist, looks at the 1994 World Cup, “Narco-soccer” and the murder of Andrés Escobar — check out a clip below.

Bringing the Podcast to a (Danny) Boyle

One of the breakout directors of the ’90s thanks to his still-exuberant, edgy and dark 1996 drug story, Danny Boyle has gone on to an intriguing career of bringing his visually kinetic style to genres as varied as horror, sci-fi, romantic comedy and now semi-experimental tales of survival. On this week’s IFC News podcast, we look at Boyle’s career, from the Hitchcockian Edinburgh antics of “Shallow Grave” to the sensory overload of “127 Hours.”

This week’s keyword game giveaway is a DVD of “Brief Interviews With Hideous Men” and a Blu-ray of “The Killer Inside Me.”

With “Saw 3D” being promised as the last in the series, are we finally seeing an end to the horror subgenre that was torture porn? This week on the IFC News podcast, we talk about the loose definitions of torture porn, whether “enjoyment” is the right word to describe the experience of watching such extreme imagery and where horror seems to be heading next.

This week’s keyword game giveaway is a DVD of Matteo Garrone’s “Gomorrah.”
