New arrivals for the week of September 21, 2010
The Experiment
Robin Hood
The Secret in their Eyes

Greetings everyone,

Now that summer is over we are seeing more and more films getting released on both DVD and BluRay. This week's biggest titles are: "The Experiment" (remake of the 2002 German film Das Experiment; w/Adrien Brody, Forest Whitaker, Maggie Grace and Cam Gigandet), "Robin Hood" (dir: Ridley Scott; w/Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett), and "The Secret in their Eyes" (Academy award winning film from Argentina). A few other titles of note include: "Fantomas: Five Film Collection" (Louis Feuillade's silent classics are finally available -- all five films on three DVDs), "Ondine" (w/Colin Farrell and Alicja Bachleda-Curus), and "Spartacus: Blood and Sand: Season 1" (w/Andy Whitfield, John Hannah, Peter Mensah and Lucy Lawless). We recently got three more titles from the always amazing Oscilloscope label: "Exploding Girl", "I Bring What I Love" and "Not your Typical Bigfoot Movie". Speaking of amazing labels, Criterion has an amazing release schedule for the rest of the year. Releases over the next few months include: Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, The Thin Red Line, The Magician, Paths of Glory, Night of the Hunter, Modern Times, and America Lost and Found: The BBS Story (a five disc/seven film set including: Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Last Picture Show, The King of Marvin Gardens, Head, A safe Place and Drive, He Said). What a line-up!

Next week will be the first week for Global Lens at the University YMCA -- ten films will be shown, one each Thursday, starting September 30th at 5:30. The series opens with "Adrift" (Vietnam, 2009, dir: Bui Thac Chuyen). More information can be found on the University YMCA web-site.
