New arrivals for the week of May 31, 2011
Biutiful
Drive Angry
Passion Play

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest titles include: "Biutiful" (w/Javier Bardem, directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu of Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Babel fame), "Drive Angry" (w/Nicolas Cage and Amber Heard), and "Passion Play" (w/Megan Fox, Bill Murray and Mickey Rourke). We also got some new TV stuff including Psych (S5), Rookie Blue (S1) and True Blood (S3). Also, Criterion has released three more BluRay discs: "Diabolique", "Pale Flower" and "Solaris".

Not movie related but definitely awesome: The Soundtrack of Our Lives (considered by many, myself included, to be “the greatest living rock band in the world today”) are playing the Highdive this Thursday. We have loved these guys from the start and have been begging them to come to town for years. Bonus: your ticket to evening show gets you into a special afternoon acoustic set at Parasol Records (at 4:30). Highly recommended...

Even though we have over 150 films in our Art & Artists section, they can't make the Top 100 unless they rent. So, this list only represents the 73 titles that have rented in the past year. As expected, "Objectified" got bumped out of the pole position by "Exit Through the Gift Shop" but it did manage to remain in the top 10 (along with another Gary Hustwit film, "Helvetica"). Here are the Top 10 Art Films:
1) EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
2) THE ART OF THE STEAL
3) ALL ABOUT PRINTS
4) BETWEEN THE FOLDS
5) VISUAL ACOUSTICS
6) GLASER, MILTON: TO INFORM AND...
7) ALICE NEEL
8) HELVETICA
9) OBJECTIFIED
10) KOOLHAAS, REM: A KIND OF ARCHITECT
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Reminder: Rentertainment has switched to Summer hours. Our hours are now 11-10 every day except on Sunday when we'll open at noon.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
