New arrivals for the week of April 21, 2015
Cake
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Maps to the Stars
Taken 3

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest titles are: "Cake" (w/Jennifer Aniston, Anna Kendrick, Britt Robertson, Lucy Punch, etc), "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" (directed by Ana Lily Amirpour), "Maps to the Stars" (directed by David Cronenberg; w/Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska and John Cusack) and "Taken 3" (w/Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen and Forest Whitaker). Also of interest: Sylvia Chang's "20 30 40" (2004), Frank Whaley's "Like Sunday, Like Rain" (2014) and Ming-liang Tsai's "Stray Dogs" (2013). On the TV front we picked up Fortitude S1 and Musketeers S2. And, we grabbed a copy of "The Son of the Sheik" (1926; w/Rudolph Valentino and Vilma Bánky). Lastly, we got a stack of new Criterion BluRay discs: Yasujirô Ozu's "An Autumn Afternoon" (1962), Jean Renoir's "A Day in the Country" (1936), Errol Morris' "Gates of Heaven/Vernon, Florida" (1978/1981), Guy Maddin's "My Winnipeg" (2007), Jean Renoir's "The River" (1951), Federico Fellini's "Fellini Satyricon" (1969), Preston Sturges' "Sullivan's Travels" (1941) and Martin Rosen's "Watership Down" (1983). You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Mike Nichol's "The Birdcage " (1996; w/Robin Williams, Nathan Lane, Gene Hackman and Dianne Wiest) is the top renter in our Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender section. The second most rented title is John Cameron Mitchell's "Hedwig and the Angry Inch " (2001) followed by Cory Krueckeberg's "Getting Go, the Go Doc Project" (2013). Two of the top renters from last time around (Yen Tan's "Pit Stop" and Travis Mathews' "Interior. Leather Bar") dropped a bit farther down the Top 10, a couple of others ("Hot Guys with Guns" and "Cruel & Unusual") shuffled around a bit and "Burning Blue", "Five Dances" and "Test" are all new to the list. Here are the Top Renters from the GLBT section:
1 BIRDCAGE, THE
2 HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
3 GETTING GO
4 INTERIOR. LEATHER BAR. (2012)
5 BURNING BLUE
6 FIVE DANCES
7 PIT STOP (2013)
8 TEST
9 CRUEL & UNUSUAL
10 HOT GUYS WITH GUNS
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
