New arrivals for the week of November 8, 2011
Atlas Sgrugged
Change-Up
River Why
Life in a Day

Greetings everyone,

This week's new release box included quite a few goodies: "Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 " (w/Taylor Schilling and Edi Gathegi), "The Change-Up" (w/Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman), and "The River Why" (w/Zach Gilford and Amber Heard). In "Life in a Day", Kevin Macdonald takes footage from 80,000 videos submitted to YouTube to capture a moment of the day and offers a unique experience showing what it's like to be alive on Earth today. Criterion released the "Fanny and Alexander" box set (w/both the theatrical and the television versions) on BluRay. Next week Criterion is releasing the definitive edition of Krzysztof Kieślowski's "Three Colors" trilogy (Blue, White and Red). And, for all you Muggles out there, the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise will be released on Friday.

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 52 titles that have rented in the past year. "Exit Through the Gift Shop" has managed to hold onto the pole position for another round followed closely by "Helvetica" (which shares the top 10 with another Gary Hustwit film, "Objectified"). Nice to see "Craft in America" in the top 10, too. Here you have it, the Top 52 Art Films:
1) EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP (DVD)
2) HELVETICA (DVD)
3) BETWEEN THE FOLDS (DVD)
4) ART OF THE STEAL, THE (DVD)
5) BLACK WHITE + GRAY (DVD)
6) CRAFT IN AMERICA: SEASON 3 (DVD)
7) OBJECTIFIED (DVD)
8) TOULOUSE-LAUTREC AND MONTMARTRE (DVD)
9) ALICE NEEL (DVD)
10) ANSEL ADAMS (DVD)
(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)
