New arrivals for the week of October 18, 2011
Bad Teacher
Monte Carlo
Page One
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Greetings everyone,

There were quite a few big titles released this week including "Bad Teacher" (w/Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and Justin Timberlake), "Monte Carlo" (w/Selena Gomez, Katie Cassidy and Leighton Meester), "Page One: Inside the New York Times" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (w/Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz). We also got three titles for foodies: Cook's Country Season 3 (we got season 4 last week), Jamie Oliver's Food Escapes (six discs worth of travel and food), and the Essential Jacques Pepin (13 hours of Pepin). Also, as promised, Criterion released the Lenigrad Cowboys trilogy (the third part being the massive concert in Helsinki’s Senate Square with the 150-member Alexandrov Red Army Chorus and Dance Ensemble). Lastly, on BluRay we finally got Fellini's "The Clowns" and 2009's Bava/Argento inspired "Amer". Lots of great stuff to watch as fall sets in.

Initially, the American Independent Film section was strictly films that debuted at Sundance. We've since taken a few liberties with that initial rule for a few of the selections but the spirit of the AIF section remains: films that were made on a shoestring, outside "the system", and/or in someone's backyard. Here they are, the Top 100 renters from the American Independent Section:
1) THE ROOM
2) WELCOME TO THE RILEYS
3) ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW
4) PRIMER
5) THE KILLER INSIDE ME
6) MEEK'S CUTOFF
7) TRUCKER
8) DONNIE DARKO
9) TRASH HUMPERS
10) HELENA FROM THE WEDDING
(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)
