I managed to get the 2 videos of Svankmajer animations from the library, I was willing to purchase them but the assistant manager said I could have them for nothing, a nice surprise.

Volume 1.

Dimensions of Dialogue.
The Flat.
Virile Games.
Down to the Cellar.
The Last Trick.

Volume 2.

The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia.
Leonardo's Diary.
The Ossuary.
Jabberwocky.
Punch and Judy.
Johann Sebastian Bach.

I'd love to see "Alice" again.

Also picked up:

Little Otik.
Russian Ark (bad memories)
Father & Son. - All on dvd.

I'll have to keep my eyes open at the library, there are quite a few videos they're clearing out that are unavailable (as yet) on dvd including Ugetsu Monogatori.

Cheers Trev.

Almost forgot, rented London to Brighton (2006) and Black Book (2006), if either or both are good they'll join the collection.

Cheers Trev.

"Russian Ark (bad memories)"

I don't quite remember what you initially said about it, but it had something to do with your eyes.

Hey! I'm only re-watching it to decide which Sokurov film to cover, same with Father & Son. If not I'd have a selection of one, the far superior "The Sun".

If it wasn't for this I wouldn't make any effort to see it again.

So I guess it's all your fault.......

Cheers Trev.

It'd be nice if we end up choosing the same film.

I wonder which one(s) you could be referring to....

Picked up Duck Season - Temporada de patos (2004) and The Vanishing - Spoorloos (198 . Looking forward to seeing Duck Season in particular again.

Cheers Trev.

I loved Duck Season (didn't we exchange a few comments on it?). Which reminds me, I need to complete my Best of 2006 lists.

Yep, lovely little film that deserves attention for all the right reasons, I'm trying to arrange it so that at least one or two of my sons can spare the time to watch it as well, I know they'd appreciate it.

Cheers Trev.

Came home to find quite a few dvds awaiting my attention, too many to list right now but I was very happy to see Climates and Three Times among them.

Cheers Trev.
