    ...especially from within its own ranks! [​IMG]
    Come to think of it Sean Anderson posts in here once a while - any chance of a chat? Not a bad way to get people excited about their releases.
    But please...no spine numbers! [​IMG]
    Wouldn't it be great if they got the rights to Salo? [​IMG]

    According to the site, they'll be covering...
    "American and foreign independent features, documentaries, music video projects, revivals and much more."
    This is definetely good news for fans of independent film. Criterion's released some independent titles, but didn't cover as much as they should IMO.

    Someone on DVDTalk posted this link, I figured it would be of interest to members here.
