New arrivals for the week of October 28, 2008


Hello Everyone,

Hip-hip-hooray!!! Hip-hip-hooray!!! Hip-hip-hooray!!! The 2008 cycling DVDs are in... The Tour de France, Paris-Roubaix, Tour of Flanders... they're all here. Although it looks like we might have a few more weeks of reasonable riding weather left these should get us through the bitter cold stretch until spring. If you don't quite understand why one would watch a DVD of a bike race, start out small and watch Louis Malle's 18 minute film, "Viva le Tour" (1962) -- it's in the French section.

This week we also got couple of new environmental documentaries: "Solar Energy: Saved by the Sun" and "Rachel Carson's Silent Spring". Also, two new documentaries about photographers: "Annie Leibovitz: Life Through a Lens" and "American Horizons: The Photographs of Art Sinsabaugh" (who taught right here at the University of Illinois). There are also about another half dozen other new documentaries scattered through the list. On the BluRay front, we got six James Bond films -- I'm hoping for more in the near future. This week's BluRay titles were delayed but should be here on Wednesday sometime. Lastly, Jenn is working on putting together a Euro-Sleaze section... better free up your weekend!

... and, don't forget, The Fourth Annual Tournées French Film Festival starts on Friday (Oct 31 - November 6 at Boardman's Art Theatre). Don't miss out on your chance to watch some great French films on the big screen.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
