New arrivals for the week of January 20, 2009


Happy Inauguration Day!

"El Norte", Gregory Nava's saga about two illegal immigrants in America, is finally available. Roger Ebert showed it at the 1994 Ebertfest, it was nominated for an Oscar and won an award at the Montreal World Film Festival but has been out of print on VHS forever. We've got it on BluRay and should have the DVD next week sometime. That's another one to knock off our ever-shrinking wish list. Also available for the first time is 1979 Golden Globe nominee, "Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands" from Brazil. It's been a good week for hard-to-find stuff. I've been watching "Corner Gas" (thanks for the recommendation, Don) -- a Canadian sit-com about some regular folks in Dog River (a small Saskatchewan town). It's got a great "home-made" feel to it... kind of like the Red Green Show but actually completely different. I think it's the funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
