I haven't had much time to mess with DVD collecting this trip, but here's what's been added to the Jungle collection this last two weeks, which collection now stands at 1,300 DVD's.
For a Few Dollars More, 1965
The Beguiled, 1971 (less well known Eastwood, a very good film)
Bukowski: Born into This, 2003
Peeping Tom, 1960 (Classic Michael Powell missing from the Powell box collection)
Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt, 2004
Lubbock Lights, 2005 (Lubbock alt-country scene doco)
Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint - Hot as a Pistol, Keen as a Blade (2006)
Prizzi's Honor, 1985
The Ballad of Ramblin' Jack, 2000
Flower and Snake, 2004 (the Takashi Ishii version)
Scorpion: Beast Stable, 1973 (great Japanese trash)
Scorpion: Grudge Song, 1973 (yet more)
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, 1970 (American trash of the finest order, Roger Ebert - Russ Meyer screenplay)
Pickup on South Street, 1953 (Sam Fuller, with a nice interview with him)
...and a couple of last minute doco additions from my brother...
The Corporation, 2005
Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, 1992
Geez, I'm saying "doco" now. A c0uple years overseas and I'm speaking Australian...what's next?
Also picked up Black and White Night, as mentioned in an earlier post, and fresh DVD9 (meaning real dual layer, not the bogus ones for sale in PP) copies of The Kids are Alright and Quiet American (the '58 version) to replace my funkified DVD's of these.
The entire Jungle collection is always catalogued here.
Today is moving day. Having tried to sell or give away most of my stuff except books and records, what's left and worth something goes into storage until I kind find a shipping carton coming over here or get tired of the outrageous bills for storage. Looks like I'll have a nice pair of speakers coming over, and, if I'm lucky and it gets here on time a new HD-DVD player as well.
