arsaib4, where on earth do you find these films, you always appear to obtain the most unusual dvds.

At least there are a couple more for the Argentina thread.

Cheers Trev.

Yeah, arsaib always has the most interesting titles for me. I'd like to see most of the films myself, but I usually don't even know where to rent them

Well as far as Solonas goes, if you can get a copy of Hour of the Furnaces by all means let me know.

Is the Hou film available here yet, because its playing in the cinema in a few weeks. I know Cafe Lumiere premiered the same week the DVD came out. Oh and I've heard horrible things about the transfer on 47 Ronin, so you'll have to keep me informed about that.

No, not at this point. But even if it was, I'd still strongly recommend that you haul your @#%$ to the Music Box (June 23 - 29).

Its a nice theater, but it takes a little under an hour to get there and the tickets are $9.25 a piece, so it really isn't much more to just buy the dvd, but of course its the preferred method. Although I must say I saw Army of Shadows in their second theatre, and its about as big as a living room, and the seats and space between isles certainly leave something to be desired. I was spoiled after the Gene Siskel Film Center, without a doubt the nicest seats I've ever encountered in a movie theatre. Music Box does have atmosphere though, still set up like a grand old movie palace, and they even have someone come in and play organ music between shows.
