It has A Talking Picture, Word and Utopia, Oporto of My Childhood, and The Uncertainty Principle.

Will get to them eventually. There are so many 2005 films that still need to be written about.

I didn't see that set available so I'm currently assuming it's an import set. There are only three of his films available in the US, the only one of which I've seen is Abraham Valley. Shame I missed his most recent during the Chicago International Film Festival (It was playing in a particularly troublesome theater, and during the World Series).

I bought the last Harry Potter film, so I'll get to watch that soon, and I just ordered but have not yet received Gabbeh and Black Girl/Borum Street. After years of bitching about New Yorker's output, they're now giving me the opposite problem by releasing TOO MUCH for me to keep up with, especially because dvdplanet stopped carrying them and I took a 66% cut in pay.

Yeah, the Oliveira films are R2 (France). He's almost 97 and he's got a couple of films coming up. Unbelievable.

I'm also waiting for Black Girl and the short.

At last, my region 1 copy of Koreeda's "After Life" has arrived. Feels like years since I last saw it, obviously I'll comment on this wonderful film asap.

Cheers Trev.

First I thought you were laughing at my taste in movies, now that I see the misspelling (believe it or not it wasn't intentional), I'll leave it.
