Closed Wednesdays

We want to let you know that starting next Wednesday, April 24th, we’ll no longer be open on Wednesdays. Unfortunately our current staff will have other work commitments at that time, but we’re working on getting new staff members trained in and hope to be open again on Wednesdays once that training is complete, which may take a few months. During this interim period, we’re going to aim for announcing next week’s titles on the Tuesday before they’re released, barring a shipping delay that would prevent being certain about which titles will be available.

Sandler's politics... who knows for sure

Al says:
crimes are often caused by bigger, more officially sanctioned crimes

Amber says:
This film never answers questions about the disappearance of three schoolgirls and their teacher on an excursion to Hanging Rock in Victoria on Valentine’s Day 1900. In fact, one of the missing girls is found about a week later with absolutely no recollections, only with broken fingernails. The unsolved mystery could be frustrating or maddening for some viewers, but in fact drives the plot forward as we see how their disappearance affects those left behind. This dreamy and haunting film is rich in symbolism and has perfectly matched sound and cinematography. The landscape itself provokes feelings of ethereal mystery. I found this movie completely captivating from beginning to end, and well-worth repeated viewings.
