The only thing better than watching people eat delicious food in gorgeous locations – besides actually eating it yourself – is watching two comedians do it. Michael Winterbottom launched what would become a beloved trilogy back in 2010 with The Trip, which began as a BBC Television miniseries with episodes edited into a feature-length versions. The first film found comedian-actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon traveling across Yorkshire devouring scrumptious meals and showing off their best celebrity impressions. After reuniting for a second course in The Trip to Italy in 2014, the two are back for a third excursion in The Trip to Spain, a delight that adds some introspective notes to the series.

The executive producer directed some of the show’s must astounding episodes, from Season 1’s brutal “Gladys” to last year’s Season 2 finale that found Justin Theroux’s Kevin Garvey singing karaoke to escape the afterlife. The visual language of the HBO series reached new heights in the second season, and now Leder is helping expand that ever further as the show heads to Australia for its final eight hours.
