New arrivals for the week of August 31, 2010
Harry Brown
OSS-117: Lost in Rio
Red Riding Trilogy

Greetings everyone,

International film dominates the new release wall this week. From the UK we have "Harry Brown" (w/Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer), from France comes the 2nd in the OSS-117 series, "OSS-117: Lost in Rio" (w/Jean Dujardin), and, again from the UK, we have "Red Riding Trilogy" (dir: Julian Jarrold, James Marsh, and Anand Tucker). Also of note this week we got "I Need That Record! The Death (or Possible Survival) of the Independent Record Store", "Carmen and Geoffrey" (a documentary about Carmen de Lavallade, dancer/choreographer, and her husband Geoffrey Holder, a choreographer/set and costume designer/painter), and "Leonard Cohen: Bird on a Wire".

If you've been in the store lately you may have noticed here's been a bit of a changing of the guard behind the counter. Gone are Allison, Bronwyn, Leah, and Pat but picking up where they left off are Ben, Courtney, Darwin, and Erin. Say "hello" the next time you stop by.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Comedies":
1) INVENTION OF LYING, THE
2) SERIOUS MAN, A
3) 500 DAYS OF SUMMER
4) MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS, THE
5) HOT TUB TIME MACHINE
6) WHIP IT
7) BIG LEBOWSKI, THE
8) INFORMANT, THE
9) KICK-ASS
10) HANGOVER, THE
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
