New arrivals for the week of September 25, 2012
The Avengers
Damsels in Distress
Delicacy
The Tall Man

Greetings all,

Fun fact: "The Avengers" (w/Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, etc) pulled in more than twice the box office dollars of all the other major titles being released in the entire month of September combined! The other big titles for this week are "Damsels in Distress" (w/Greta Gerwig and Adam Brody), "Delicacy" (w/Audrey Tautou and Francois Damiens) and "The Tall Man" (w/Jessica Biel and Jodelle Ferland). New stuff in the TV section includes Desperate Housewives S8 (the final season), Family Guy S10, Law & Order SVU S13, New Tricks S8, Portlandia S2 and three different CSIs (regular, Miami and NY). Criterion released Paul Bartel's "Eating Raoul" (1982). Lastly, the 2010 Danish film "Klown" (w/Frank Hvam, Caspar Christensen and Marcuz Jess Petersen) can now be found on the new wall. Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

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. If you frequent Ebertfest you should recognize a lot of the titles (Tiny Furniture, Me and You and Everyone We Know, Primer, etc). If you're not an Ebertfest goer, those would be some great ones to start with. Alternatively, have a look at the complete Top 100 renters from the AIF section and grab something that looks interesting. Here are the Top 10:
1 ANOTHER EARTH
2 TINY FURNITURE
3 MEEK'S CUTOFF
4 BELLFLOWER
5 ART OF GETTING BY
6 ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW
7 ROOM, THE
8 DONNIE DARKO
9 PRIMER
10 ERASERHEAD
(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)
