New arrivals for the week of November 12, 2013
Blackfish
Frances Ha
Man of Steel
Turbo

Greetings everyone,

Pardon our mess! It seems replacing a few drawers turned into replacing a few drawers, adding some shelving, rearranging the counters, and otherwise making a complete mess of the front end of the store. Hopefully we'll get the chaos sorted by the weekend and we can all get back to just watching movies. This week's biggest new releases include: "Blackfish" (directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite; w/Tilikum), "Frances Ha" (Criterion, directed by Noah Baumbach, w/Greta Gerwig and Mickey Sumner), "Man of Steel" (w/Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, etc) and "Turbo" (w/voices of Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Maya Rudolph, etc). Also of note: "The Attack" (2012, Lebanon/France/Qatar/Belgium), "Barbara" (2012, Germany), "Ip Man: The Final Fight" (Hong Kong, w/Anthony Wong Chau-Sang), "Paradise" (w/Julianne Hough, Octavia Spencer, Russell Brand, Holly Hunter and Nick Offerman) and "Prince Avalanche" (w/Emile Hirsch and Paul Rudd). We also got two Burning Man documentaries ("Burning Man Festival" and "Journey to the Flames"). Highlights on the TV front include "Hannibal Season 1" and the final season of "Dexter". Lastly, along with "Frances Ha", Criterion released Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights" (1931). You can check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

When our documentary section got too big, we started pulling subsections out of it. Some of those were American Politics, Food/Wine/Cooking, Social & Environmental Issues and the subject of this week's Top 100 listing, the Arts & Artists section. This section covers painting, photography, graffiti, crafts, architecture, and more. This time around, the top renting film from the Arts & Artists section is Paul Cox's "Vincent: The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh" (1987). Banksy's film, "Exit Through the Gift Shop", dropped to second place followed by "Gerhard Richter - Painting". The rest of the Top 10 includes some familiar faces: Max Ernst, Bill Cunningham, Gregory Crewdson, Francesca Woodman and the PBS series "Art: 21". Next time you're in, dig through this section (and the other documentary sub-sections) -- you'll find lots worth watching. Here are the top renters from the Art & Artists section:
1 VINCENT: LIFE AND DEATH OF... (1987)
2 EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
3 GERHARD RICHTER PAINTING
4 ERNST, MAX
5 ART: 21: SEASON 1 & 2
