New arrivals for the week of June 30, 2009


Greetings everyone,

Sometime in early 2008 Adam Yauch (MCA of the Beastie Boys) started an indie film distribution company called Oscilloscope Laboratories (www.oscilloscope.net). Since then they have released almost a dozen films including "Dear Zachary", "Flow", and "Wendy and Lucy". We just got two more: "Gunnin' for that #1 Spot" (a documentary about eight high school basketball players hoping to make the NBA) and "Scott Walker: 30 Century Man" (a "rare glimpse into the creative world of the most enigmatic figure in rock history"). If you've enjoyed any of the other Oscilloscopes releases I would recommend either of these. If you're new to the game, I'd say these two are as good a place to start as any... even if you're not a big Beastie Boys fan.

Also new this week: the latest (last?) season of Canada's best TV show in years, "Corner Gas: Season 6", Henry Jaglom's "Deja Vu" (as seen at Ebertfest a few years ago), and Michel Gondry, Leos Carax, and Joon Ho Bong each direct a segment of "Tokyo!".

On BluRay we got Joaquin Phoenix and Gwyneth Paltrow in "Two Lovers" and the above mentioned "Tokyo!" Otherwise, a few older releases: Bruce Lee in "Enter the Dragon" and Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" and "Inside Man".

Today the Illini 4000 for Cancer are in Sioux Falls, SD heading for Mitchell ("Mitchell!")where they will get a rest day. They are still reporting bad weather (either rain or hot) but hopefully they are getting the same break we just got (cool and beautiful). But, that westerly wind must be wreaking havoc on them. You can read the team's blogs, track their progress, and of course make donations on the Illini 4000 web-site (www.illini4000.org).

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

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
