We have many thanks to give for our late November new releases just waiting for you to take home!
Come by and pick up "Rare Exports", a soon-to-be cult classic about the real Santa Claus, from Finland, which came in just in time for the holiday (see the attached image)! Also, brand new to the store we have "The Future" by Miranda July, "Beginners" by Mike Mills, the indy sensation "Bellflower", "Conan the Barbarian" starring Ron Perlman, something surprisingly different from Kevin Smith called "Red State", "Friends With Benefits" starring Mila Kunis and "JT", and, last but not least, "The Smurfs" with the always charming Jonathan Winters voicing Papa Smurf. Our featured, must-see, Criterion re-release this week is the Sabu box set featuring such classics as "Jungle Book" (1942), "The Drum", and "Elephant Boy"! Several documentaries have also come in that are causing quite a stir... We have the long awaited "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" by Werner Herzog (on DVD, Blu-Ray AND 3D Blu-Ray), the fans speak up in "The People vs. George Lucas", also, new from Patricia Guzman "Nostalgia for the Light"!
If that's not enough to keep you entertained through December, you should also stop by our recommended "Seasons Screenings" section to stock up on your holiday rentals! See you soon...
Last week (11/1/11) we had some great new films come in! "Winnie the Pooh" a throwback to the golden age of Disney, as well as the film version of the novel that took the world by storm "Water for Elephants", "Crazy Stupid Love" with Steve Carell and Julianne Moore, "The Trip" with Steve Coogan, "Mr. Nice" starring the charismatic Crispin Glover and David Thewlis, "The Princess of Montpensier", "Tabloid" by the amazing Errol Morris, "The Shock Doctrine" by Michael Winterbottom, and, last but not least, "Page One: Inside the N.Y. Times"!
This week we have "The Change Up" with Jason Bateman, "Hot Coffee" an arresting documentary on the trial between a woman and McDonald's over spilled coffee, "Ex Drummer", the fascinating "Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls", the beautiful "Sleeping Beauty" by Catherine Breillat (see the attached picture), and "Dr. Who, Season 6, Part 2".
