New arrivals! The pink ones are ‘60s Nagisa Oshima films, the noir set has 5 titles (Tourneur’s Nightfall, Lang’s Human Desire, Pushover, The Brothers Rico, City of Fear), The Sea Gull is the Lumet version w/ Vanessa Redgrave, and ask us if you need any other spines identified OK? Sorry for obscuring the the Criterion covers with gleam (well, maybe not for the Cluny Brown artwork...)

From the classics (Magnolia, The Virgin Suicides, The Talented Mr. Ripley) to slept-on gems (Ravenous, eXistenZ, and Nagisa Oshima's swansong Taboo [Gohatto])...

Giveaway time!
