Hello Everyone,

Happy "National Bike to Work Week"! And, don't forget, this Friday (the 18th) is National Bike to Work Day. To make sure I wouldn't be tempted to drive to work this week, I blew a hole in my car's radiator. You probably don't have to go to such extremes but do try to take a day off the gas pedal and have a ride instead. In fact, Wednesday May 16th (7:00pm, Assembly Hall parking lot) is the annual RIDE OF SILENCE. Join cyclists worldwide in a silent, slow-paced ride in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. For more cycling related links (and a great list of films that include cycling as a theme) check out Renter's Cycling in Champaign County web page. Last note on cycling (for this update), did everyone see this bit of craziness -- what is wrong with people?

In video news, "Becket" is finally available on DVD. Louis Malle's fabulous documentary short film on the Tour de France (oops, another cycling reference), "Vive la Tour", got released along with a slew of other Louis Malle documentaries in the Eclipse (a new endeavor by the folks at the Criterion Company) box set. Eclipse has also done "The Short Films of Ingmar Bergman" and is working on "Late Ozu" and "Raymond Bernard". Have you seen David Hasselhoff in the musical version of "Jekyll & Hyde"? Did you even know that existed? Me neither.

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was Akira Kurosawa's "Rashamon". This week's film will be Alf Sjöberg's "Miss Julie". In case you are interested, the latest review is always on Renter's front page with a link to the rest of the reviews below it.

Have a great week!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
