Operation Kino #62: On Dark Shadows And The Decline Of Tim Burton

This week on Operation Kino we're so sick of Tim Burton we can't even be bothered to review his new movie, Dark Shadows. Instead we hand over the review segment to two very good new indies, Sound of My Voice and Sleepless Night, and then hand over Segment 3 to Mr. Burton, specifically in trying to figure out how his career went wrong and if it might get better. Before any of that, though, there's a lightning round inspired by God Bless America, and then tidbits, in which Patches recaps a Women Filmmaker's Panel held at Columbia University recently, Katey tries to recap the insanity of Sacha Baron Cohen's "press conference/PR stunt" on behalf of The Dictator, and David is fed up with people who think there's a difference between the top 10 "best" movies and their own personal favorites. (Da7e is missing this week, but he'll be back soon). We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert!
