New arrivals for the week of April 7, 2009


Greetings everyone,

This week's box of goodies included two new Criterion titles: Andrej Wadja's "Danton" and Roberto Rossellini's "Il Generale della Rovere". Also, Leah Mahan's wonderful film about Howard 'Louie Bluie' Armstrong, "Sweet Old Song", has finally arrived (and for more on Howard Armstrong watch Terry Zwigoff's "Louie Bluie" if you ever get the chance). The 5th season of "McLeod's Daughters" puts us past the halfway point on this 64 disc (and counting) epic and the 7th series of "All Creatures Great and Small" wraps that series up for us. Guy Madden's 1992 film, "Careful", shot in an early German film style, is at the top of my "to watch soon" pile. His short film, "The Heart of the World" (2000), is one of my favorites (and it's a bonus feature on the "Twilight of the Ice Nymphs" DVD). Lots to watch this week!

The Illini 4000 for Cancer have started training for their third cross country trek via bicycle. Once again, they are raising money for cancer causes both nationally and locally. I went on their first official training ride to Homer Lake last weekend and was very impressed by this year's team. Watch this space for periodic updates on how they are doing. Check out their website (www.illini4000.org) for more information.

That's it for now. Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
