Operation Kino 128: Which Director Would You Send To Peter Jackson Island?

This week we're thinking about recent films like Ain't Them Bodies Saints and Lee Daniels' The Butler and wondering how much a director's biography is important when considering their work. On top of that, Patches' has checked in with the kids these days and brought us word on Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Da7e digs into Seattle's prostitution industry with the new iTunes rentable doc Rape For Profit, we ponder which director we would assign a Peter Jackson-style mini-empire, and we pick our most anticipated movies of the upcoming fall season.

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, 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.
