Operation Kino 109: Resurrecting Clue And Honoring Ebert With It's A Disaster Director Todd Berger

This week we are lucky enough to be joined for the entire show by Todd Berger, the writer and director of the new indie comedy It's A Disaster, which is currently available on VOD and iTunes and is heading to theaters this weekend (read all about it here). At Todd's suggestion we discuss the under-appreciated 1985 comedy Clue, spend some time nitpicking Skyfall, remember Roger Ebert, and talk to Todd about making a black comedy about what happens when the apocalypse interrupts the world's worst brunch. All that plus a lightning round inspired by the biopic 42.
