New arrivals for the week of March 11, 2008

Hello Everyone,

I've started watching documentaries again and this week I saw two amazing ones: "Johnny Berlin" (much like 1998s "The Cruise" but about a porter on a train) and "Broken Limbs: Apples, Agriculture, and the New American Farmer" (all about exactly what it sounds like it would be all about) -- look for them both at the store next week. Next up for me will be the highly recommended "The Real Dirt on Farmer John". For what it's worth, we've got over 1300 documentaries at Rentertainment... there's got to be something that is of interest to you.

In and amongst this week's boxes of new releases we unearthed a classic, Leni Riefenstahl's "Olympia" -- a beautifully filmed documentary (most would actually say a Nazi propaganda film) about the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. Criterion sent us their latest offerings: Alex Cox's "Walker" and Jean-Luc Godard's "Pierrot le Fou". It's Criterion -- it's got to be good! Once again, plenty to choose from this week.

Finally, it's starting to warm up out there so why not drag your bike out and start riding to class or work? Even just once a week. For some inspiration, check out Clif Bar's 2 Mile Challenge. If you need help tuning your bike hook up with The Bike Project in Urbana's old post office (next to Lincoln Square). For more information on commuting in Urbana-Champaign start chatting with the good folks at Champaign County Bikes -- tons of helpful hints, routes and resources. Statistics show that locally we ride our bikes for 8% of our trips. I bet this year we can double that!

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
