New arrivals for the week of April 23, 2013
Gangster Squad
A Haunted House
The Impossible
Promised Land

Greetings everyone,

Christie Clinic's Illinois Marathon is this weekend and the Tour de Champaign Criterium bicycle races are next weekend -- this is a fun time of year to be around these parts! New releases this week include "Gangster Squad" (w/Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Michael Pena, Emma Stone, etc), "A Haunted House" (w/Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins, Cedric the Entertainer, Nick Swardson, etc), "The Impossible" (w/Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts) and "Promised Land" (w/Matt Damon, Frances McDormand and John Krasinski). Also worth checking out, "Any Day Now" (w/Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt), "Central Park Five" (based on Sara Burns best-selling book and co-directed by her husband David McMahon and father, Ken Burns) and the latest from PBS' Masterpiece series, "Mr Selfridge". Lastly, Criterion released Laurence Olivier's "Richard III" (1955) and a collection of Pierre Etaix films -- both are on DVD and BluRay. Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

At the risk of pulling a muscle while patting our collective selves on the back, I must say we have a really great documentary section. The Arts & Artists section is a subset of that -- and it's really great, too. So many fantastic stories! Oscilloscope's Banksy film, "Exit Through the Gift Shop", has remained the #1 renter in the Arts & Artists Section for another month. German artist Gerhard Richter and photographer Francesca Woodman take the next two positions. The PBS series, "Art: 21", makes a strong showing with three sets in the Top 10 (and the other two sets show up a bit farther down the list). Next time you're in, dig through this section -- you'll find lots worth watching. Here are the top renters from the Art & Artists section:
1 EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
2 GERHARD RICHTER PAINTING
3 WOODMANS, THE
4 ART: 21: SEASON 6
5 CATS OF MIRIKITANI, THE
6 CRAFT IN AMERICA: THREADS
7 ART OF THE STEAL, THE
8 ART: 21: SEASON 1 & 2
9 ART: 21: SEASON 5
10 BETWEEN THE FOLDS
(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)
