Until I read your post, Nabob, I couldn't have imagined how the film could be any bleaker!

You guys know how to do home video editions of contemporary films better than anyone else.

No bother. Just another routine day at the Bureau of Bleakness Enhancement.

My parents were murdered by carrots. I still enjoy eating them though.

Well I can't very well serve the carrots alone.

Alas, all the attention that's been focused on the horrors of violent movies, and yet no one warned us about copycat crimes inspired by Shoot 'Em Up.

If that terrifies you, you should steer clear of Gummo.

We invite you to check out and follow our new Tumblr page.... We'll put up exclusive video, rare photos, and best of all, Blu-ray/DVD giveaways, and much more.

Up there now: a priceless photo of Agnes Varda hanging with Manoel de Oliveira in Portugal, plus Nuri Bilge Ceylan on the set of ANATOLIA, and Hong Sangsoo in a mirror.

OK, I really don't understand what's going on here; today I tried to call 1-800-723-5522 (Cinema Guild's office number, for placing an international order), and just like before, I did not get connected. The operator says "The number you have dialed is not available in your area at this time." I live in Canada. The first time I tried to call was when you guys had your big sale on a couple of months ago; same problem. Is there an alternative number I can reach Cinema Guild at?

The 800 number only works in the U.S.. But you can always reach us on our main number, 212-685-6242.

We are releasing THE DAY HE ARRIVES theatrically. It actually opens in NY next Friday, April 20, and will play in other cities throughout the spring and summer. Home Video release will probably be late 2012.

Really appreciate the short film. Does that make it so that all of Tarr's films are available on DVD?

I would have put this movie at the very top of a 'Films domino should really avoid' list, but I'd definitely slow down to see the aftermath of that particular collision, so go for it!

This is really going to be an incredible release! I hope it sells enough to continue justifying this amount of effort in future titles,
