New arrivals for the week of April 28, 2009


Greetings everyone,

I'd say Ebertfest was another huge success and I'm already looking forward to next year's installment. I made it to 10 of the 12 films and enjoyed them all. I always seem to enjoy the black and white film most of all. This year it was Josef von Sternberg's "The Last Command" with the Alloy Orchestra accompanying. Unfortunately, that one's not available on DVD at this time. Another favorite was "Frozen River". However, the real highlight was seeing Nina Paley's "Sita Sings the Blues" on the giant screen -- what a great movie!!! If you missed it you can always download it off the interwebs (www.sitasingstheblues.com) -- don't worry, in this case it's perfectly legal... Nina says so!

On Saturday, instead of seeing "The Fall" at Ebertfest I went on another training ride with the Illini 4000. This time we went to Sidney, Homer, and St Joseph -- 55 miles and all with some crazy 25-30mph winds. When we got back I headed to the Virginia Theater and they got back on their bikes and went to Kickapoo for an over-nighter. They've got four more weeks before they head to New York to embark on their 4000 mile cross-country trek to raise money for cancer research. Their goal this year is $100,000 -- if you want to get involved check out their web site (www.illini4000.org).

This week's highlights include "Songwriter" (starring Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson), "Cage/Cunningham" (a documentary about John Cage and Merce Cunningham), and the DVD debut of the 1971 film "Johnny Got his Gun". On BluRay we got Criterion's latest, Nagisa Oshima's "In the Realm of the Senses".

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

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
