New arrivals for the week of October 21, 2008


Hello Everyone,

The Fourth Annual Tournées French Film Festival starts in just over a week (Oct 31 - November 6). If you haven't already, you should start lining up your schedule, buying your tickets and choosing your outfits. More information is available on the official site (filmfestival.french.uiuc.edu). But, what can you do to get in the mood today? Watch a French remake of a French film that will be shown at the French Film Festival: "Flight of the Red Balloon" -- starring Juliette Binoche and directed by Hsiao-hsien Hou (of "Flowers of Shanghai" fame). Watch the original first, then watch this one, then see the original again on the big screen at the Festival (as a double feature with "The White Mane"). That's an excellent plan.

Also in this week: "Beijing 2008: The Opening Ceremonies" (which is far from the complete four hour event), Volume 2 of the Jazz Icons series (eight more Jazz performances), The Magic of Melies (the originator of special effects in film -- back in 1904!), and The Rape of Europa (a documentary on the fate of museum-quality art during WWII). Watch for six James Bond films on BluRay by the end of the week... woo-hoo!!!

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
