New arrivals for the week of April 10, 2012
Darkest Hour
Into the Abyss
Iron Lady
Sleeping Beauty

Greetings everyone,

It's been another slow week for new releases: "The Darkest Hour" (w/Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby), "Into the Abyss" (an examination of a triple homicide case in Conroe, Texas; directed by Werner Herzog), "Iron Lady" (w/Meryl Streep) and "Sleeping Beauty" (directed by Julia Leigh). We also got two sets of ESPN's "30 by 30" documentaries, "Charlotte Rampling: The Look" (a biographical study of legendary actress Charlotte Rampling) and "No Subtitles Necessary" (a documentary about László Kovács and Vilmos Zsigmond).

Years ago we started the American Independent Film section with just films that debuted at Sundance. We've since taken a few liberties with the placement of a few of the films but the spirit of the section remains: films made outside the system. Here are the Top 10 rentals in our AIF section:
1) ANOTHER EARTH
2) MEEK'S CUTOFF
3) ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW
4) ROOM, THE
5) BELLFLOWER
6) PRIMER
7) ART OF GETTING BY, THE
8) LIFE DURING WARTIME
9) DESTRICTED
10) DONNIE DARKO
(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)
