New arrivals for the week of February 21, 2012
J. Edgar
Martha
Tower Heist
The Way

Greetings everyone,

It's been another good week for new releases: "J. Edgar" (w/Leonardo DiCaprio and Naomi Watts), "Martha Marcy May Marlene" (w/Elizabeth Olsen, John Hawkes and Sarah Paulson), "Tower Heist" (w/Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, etc), and "The Way" (w/Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez). We also filled a few customer requests: the PBS production of "The American", "January Man" (w/Kevin Kline) and "A Little Night Music" (w/Elizabeth Taylor and Diana Rigg). Also, the Canal+ production of "Borgia" (not to be confused with the Showtime production of "The Borgias") came in. No need to pick sides -- enjoy them both. Lastly, Criterion released Otto Preminger's "Anatomy of a Murder" (1959) and Fassbinder's "World on a Wire" (1973) on both DVD and BluRay.

Nice to see Glenn Gould heading up the Top 100 Music Video rentals this week with the documentary "Genius Within". I suppose by all rights that should be moved to the Performing Arts section. We've grown accustomed to seeing at least a few Beatles titles and, of course, Pink Floyd's "The Wall" in the Top 10. Ken Russell's "Tommy" can generally be found up there, too. The oddity this time around is the Justin Bieber title, "Never Say Never" (which gets a glowing 1.5/10 stars at IMDB) . I bet that drops off the Top 10 Music Videos list by the next time we run it...
1) GENIUS WITHIN: THE INNER LIFE OF...
2) PINK FLOYD: THE WALL
3) UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US
4) LEMMY
5) BEATLES: HARD DAY'S NIGHT
6) BEATLES: MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR
7) TALKING HEADS: STOP MAKING SENSE
8) WHO: TOMMY
9) BEATLES: LET IT BE
10) BIEBER, JUSTIN: NEVER SAY NEVER
(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)
