Operation Kino 114: What Does Scarcity Even Mean These Days Anyway?
This week we wonder why people pay for something that's "rare" in an era where anything-- including those fancy Mondo posters-- can be replicated infinitely. If that sounds confusing, trust us, Da7e explains it. Plus discussions about the indie film Zero Charisma and John McCain's scheme to fix television, a listener voicemail question about movies opening earlier overseas than in the United States, and a lightning round inspired by Star Trek Into Darkness.
Take a listen below and find your downloading options; for more from all of us, you can follow the show (@opkino), Da7e (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and Katey (@kateyrich) on Twitter.
We also welcome your feedback as we transition into this new format, and there are lots of new places you can find us! Find us and like us at our Facebook page or call and leave us a voicemail at (914) 410-6450-- if we like it, we may play it on an upcoming show.
