Hello Everyone,

Happy Snow Day (and Valentines Day, of course)!!! Even though no one else managed to go to work or school we Rentertairians made it to campus so you wouldn't miss a single step in your continuing movie watching education. "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night..."

If you missed seeing Agela Shelton's presentation of her 2004 directorial debut film "Searching for Angela Shelton" you can now get it at Renter on DVD -- find it in the documentary section. We also got our PAL DVD of "The Lives of Others" ("Das Leben der Anderen", German language only, no subtitles, sorry). In the international classics department we got "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner", "Girl in a Bikini" (Bridgitte Bardot), "Ginger & Fred" and "Performance" (Mick Jagger). Plenty of goods to keep your TV tube burning.

Also, for the indie rockers on our list, "Half-Cocked" finally made it out on DVD. This indie rock/indie film classic where girl & friends steal van of musical instruments & morph into a real band features the music (and frequently the acting) of Rodan, Polvo, Grifters, Unwound, Ruby Falls, and Crain. Also included on the DVD is the feature "Radiation," following the exploits of a tour promoter taking US bands across Spain. Get it!!!

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was Alfred Hitchcock's "The 39 Steps" and this week it will be "Grand Illusion" -- watch along, if you want. In case you are interested, the latest review is on Renter's front page with a link to the rest of the reviews.

Have a great week!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
