    A rather odd list of films; some of the ones listed (The Son's Room, Dogtown and Z-Boys, Baran, etc) are already on DVD. But there's some great looking classics here, and my favorite film of 2002 to date is also playing:

    My parents live not far from the Dietrich Theater. As a matter of fact, when they did their renovations a few years ago, I managed to snag some of their old seats, which are will be going in my basement, once I get a house with a basement [​IMG]
    Great little theater.

    Several of these films played at the 2001 NY Film Festival, for the most part the list is a 6 to 18 months old.
    There any number of films worth seeing, if you still haven't caught them, and I certainly second the recommendation for All About Lily Chou-Chou.

    Hey, John Wielgosz, I had no idea anyone here lived as close as Kingston! The lush, green suburb of Plymouth is my home, with the world's largest per capita number of taverns, furniture stores, churches, and funeral homes.
    John Berger, forget the sangwich, youse come up and we'll head down to the bazaar for some potatah pancakes and halushki. (Yech! I'm originally from Maryland and the local cuisine is still alien to me.)
    I've already bought by ticket for Lily Chou-Chou and nothing will keep me from going.

    All About Lily Chou-Chou was my 9th pick for 2001 in the Senses of Cinema's Year End Poll; it has the multilayered depth of Iwai's earlier film Swallowtail Butterfly, but more distilled and concentrated. Great film.
    How about Patricia Cardoso's Real Women Have Curves? It's a fairly easy-going film, but a fun and engaging film nonetheless.

    Thanks for the tip, Pascal, I'll try to make that one, too.

    Donald- have you already seen My Voyage to Italy? I saw it at the Seattle International Film Festival a few months ago, and was very impressed.
