Hello Everyone,

The biggest news of the week is they have finally announced "Becket" for a DVD release on May 15. Slowly but surely our list of "Films that are either no longer available or have never been released on DVD" is getting shorter and shorter. Now if only we could get Branagh's "Hamlet" and a proper release of "Let it Be"...

In our quest to have everything Brendel we got three more Brendel DVDs this week. I think two more are on their way. We also found an "import" (but NTSC) copy of the much sought after "Machuca". And, don't forget, "The Lives of Others" (2006 Best Foreign Film) starts at the Art this Friday -- go see it! Oh, and Moises Kaufman is in town for a few weeks working on his new play. If you see him wandering around on campus say "hello" -- he's very nice. That's all.

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was Anthony Asquith's "Pygmalion" and this week it will be Marcel Carne's "Le Jour se Leve" -- 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)
