New arrivals for the week of July 13, 2010
Bounty Hunter
Chloe
Greenberg

Greetings everyone,

The biggest titles of the week are: "The Bounty Hunter" (w/Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston), "Chloe" (directed by Atom Egoyan; w/Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson, and "Greenberg" (directed by Noah Baumbach; w/Ben Stiller). But, as always, there are a few other titles that look more interesting...

"Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara" is the first in a new series of documentaries (aptly named the "New People Artists Series") focusing on contemporary Japanese artists. The whole series looks good so watch for the rest (six so far) to trickle in over the next few weeks. A couple of other art world related titles cam in, too: "Koolhaas, Rem: A Kind of Architect" (about the Dutch architect who designed Dutch Embassy in Berlin, the Seattle Library and the Casa da Musica concert hall in Porto) and "Obscene: A Portrait of Barney Rosset and Grove Press" ("... publishing and political engagement that continues to inspire today's defenders of free expression", official Selection at SXSW and Toronto International Film Festivals). Also in this week, "Wholphin Issue 11" featuring the brilliant short film, "Plastic Bag", directed by Ramin Bahrani ("Man Push Cart", "Chop Shop" and "Goodbye Solo") and narrated by Werner Herzog -- as seen at Ebertfest 2010.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Animation":
1) UP
2) FANTASTIC MR. FOX
3) 9
4) PRINCESS AND THE FROG
5) SIMPSONS: SEASON 7, 8 & 12
6) WALLACE & GROMIT: MATTER OF LOAFLOAF
7) CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS
8) WALL-E
9) KUNG FU PANDA
10) SITA SINGS THE BLUES
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
