Hello Everyone,

This week's highlight release is "Born into Brothels" -- a documentary about children of prostitutes who work Calcutta's notorious red light district. Also, Martin Scorsese's Bob Dylan documentary "No Direction Home". The next four installments of the "Works of Director..." series arrived as well (previous editions included Spike Jonze, Michael Gondry and Chris Cunningham).

Too late for this update but in stock by the end of the week: "Berlin Alexanderplatz" -- the "15 1/2 hour long episodic exploration of the character of Franz Biberkopf, 'hero' of Alfred Döblin's acclaimed novel, as well as the Alexanderplatz area of Berlin that he inhabits" (imdb). This was released briefly on VHS years ago (used copies now go for upwards of $400) and recently became available on "import" (read: bootleg) DVD. Sorry, but it's the only way to see it for now.

Also, I'm hoping to get the tucked away VHS tapes back out on the floor so they can be rented again. As you may recall, before the grand VHS sale started we pulled about 300 tapes and hid them in the basement. These were all films that were not available on DVD and we thought needed to be kept. I had promised that some day they would resurface -- that day should come later this week. Hooray!

Have a great day!!!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
