New arrivals for the week of October 13, 2009


Greetings everyone,

"Anvil! The Story of Anvil" has won awards around the world for its portrayal of two guys who, at fourteen, decided they wanted to "rock together forever" and ended up forming the most influential Canadian heavy metal band ever, Anvil. The documentary hooks up with them, now in their fifties, as they begin work on their thirteenth album. You don't have to love metal to enjoy this and it wouldn't surprise me to see it on the big screen at the Virginia some day. Equally influential, but in the silent film world, we have Charley Chase, who along with Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd helped to define the silent comedy era. "Becoming Charley Chase" collects of over forty Chase classics made between 1915-1925. From Gary Hustwit (who two years ago brought us the amazing "Helvetica"), we have "Objectified", a look at the design and designers of everyday objects. "Drag Me to Hell" is the latest from Sam Raimi (of the Evil Dead and Spider-man trilogies) and stars Alison Lohman and Justin Long. File under "Don't mess with old gypsy women who can put an evil curse on you" (remember Stephen King's "Thinner"?)...

Before David Byrne became the world famous cycling advocate that he is (www.davidbyrne.com/art/bike_racks/) he was a bonafide rock star. Jonathan Demme captured Byrne's band, The Talking Heads, at their best in "Stop Making Sense" which is now available on the fabulous BluRay format. Also new to BluRay this week is Oliver Stone's "Natural Born Killers", South Park's "Bigger Longer Uncut" and pre-Mentalist Robin Tunney's "The Craft".

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
