    I was watching Mathieu Kassovitz's "Crimson Rivers" a few days ago and was heavily reminded of a title that I've wanted since I originally got into DVD in the first place - Kassovitz's "La Haine", a powerfully acted and intense 1995 French B & W drama that floored me the first time I saw it.
    I believe it was originally a Gramercy release (in association with Jodie Foster's Egg Productions, as Foster wanted to bring the film to the US), but would that mean that it's now in the hands of USA Films or MGM?

    I have been wondering the same thing... As you probably already know, there is a Special Edition of http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005JJBC/qid=1003545213/ [​IMG]
    Amélie should be released in North America next month, and will probably become a big hit over there as well (IMHO.) Hopefully this will stir renewed interest in the past works of Mathieu Kassovitz, including La Haine.
