Operation Kino 80: Wrapping Our Minds Around The Master And The Toronto Film Festival
This week on Operation Kino, all four of us are back together again, but not in the same country, with Katey calling in from the Toronto Film Festival so we can review The Master, which premiered there. And because Patches was also up in Toronto, we dedicate Segment 3 to discussing the festival, both which films we saw that we liked and the general importance of Toronto as the biggest of the fall festivals. Before any of that, though, we’ve got a lightning round inspired by Resident Evil’s Paul W.S. Anderson, then tidbits, in which Da7e runs down some of the many docs he’s watched recently on Netflix, David is surprised to like Arbitrage, Patches catches up with Satoshi Kon’s Paprika, and Katey is wondering if the trend of people using smartphones in movies at Toronto is going to spread even further. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.
