New arrivals for the week of March 29, 2011
Black Swan
Fair Game
Made in Dagenham

Greetings everyone,

By far, this week's biggest release is "Black Swan" (for which Natalie Portman won an Oscar, a BAFTA, an Empire Award, and numerous other fine prizes). Also big but not nearly as big as "Black Swan" are: "Fair Game" (w/Naomi Watts and Sean Penn), "Made in Dagenham" (w/Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins and Miranda Richardson), and "Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1" (part 2, w/Vincent Cassel and Ludivine Sagnier). From the TV we got "Mad Men: Season 4", "Treme: Season 1", and two more seasons of the PBS series "Art:21". And, while on the subject of art, we grabbed a copy of "William Kentridge: Anything is Possible" ("...an intimate look into the mind and creative process of William Kentridge the South African artist whose acclaimed charcoal drawings, animations, video installations, shadow plays, mechanical puppets, tapestries, sculptures, live performance pieces and operas..."). The most exciting BluRay to arrive this week was Kino's newly remastered edition of Buster Keaton's "Our Hospitality" -- watch for Criterion's release of Chaplin's "The Great Dictator" in May.

The Lizard King knocked Lips out of the #1 position (and all the way down to #17) and Boys from Liverpool seem to be switching their top titles around a bit... but, otherwise, no real surprises. Here are the top 10 Music renters from the past year:
1) DOORS: WHEN YOU'RE STRANGE
2) RUSH: BEYOND THE LIGHTED STAGE
3) PINK FLOYD: THE WALL
4) FLECK, BELA: THROW DOWN YOUR HEART
5) BEATLES: ANTHOLOGY
6) VELVET UNDERGROUND: VANISHING POINT
7) ROLLING STONES: STONES IN EXILE
8) TALKING HEADS: STOP MAKING SENSE
9) BEATLES: HELP!
10) JACKSON, MICHAEL: THIS IS IT
(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)
