New arrivals for the week of October 20, 2009


Greetings everyone,

"Transformers 2", "Cheri" and "L Word: Season 6" top the charts as biggest new releases of the week. But, the hidden gem this week is Marilyn Levine and Ross McElwee's "Something to do with the Wall" (1992). What started out as a documentary on the 25th anniversary of the building of the Berlin Wall changed course as the film was nearing completion because the Wall came down. So, it became a look in on the newly reunified Berlin. Also of interest this week: "Midsomer Murders: Set 13", America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Illustrated's sister show/publication's "Cook's Country: Season 1", and Daniel Jung's "They Killed Sister Dorothy".

If the recession doesn't get me it will be the sheer quantity of great titles Criterion is releasing that does (since I'm obsessive and need to own them all). This week Criterion released "Monsoon Wedding" on BlueRay (and on DVD but c'mon...) with seven of Mira Nair's short films included as bonus features. Next week we'll get Costa-Gravas' incredible political thriller "Z" followed just one week later by one of my favorites, Wim Wenders "Wings of Desire". By the end of the year they'll have Soderbergh's "Che", Desplechin's "A Christmas Tale", Ritchie's "Downhill Racer", "The Golden Age of Television", Garrone's "Gomorrah", Wenders' "Paris, Texas", and Rossellini's "War Trilogy" -- whew!

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
