Operation Kino 127: How To Tell History Better On Film, And Some Breaking Bad Speculation

This week we can't figure out why so many Hollywood movies-- including Lee Daniels' The Butler-- tell history so poorly, and wonder if documentaries should be made more often by major studios. Plus more detailed discussion about The Butler, David's adventures in the game Persona 4: Golden, a pop quiz about whether we think Walter White will die at the end of Breaking Bad, and a lightning round about our favorite historical figures on film.

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.
