This week on Operation Kino, we're off our meds and running laps around the neighborhood, as all four of us-- yes, even Da7e saw it!-- review David O. Russell's new film Silver Linings Playbook. From there we jump into what's been a hot topic in the movie writing world lately: movie run times, whether there is a certain length movies should be, and whether any of this really matters. Before any of that, though, we've got a lightning round inspired by Killing Them Softly and then tidbits, in which David talks about Killing Them Softly, Patches catches you up on the docs Ai Wei Wei: Never Sorry and The Gatekeepers, Da7e runs down the year in comics, and Katey ponders the many cultural reference points within Dog Day Afternoon.
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.
