    S.F.W.

    Spanking the Monkey

    Over the Edge

    Even Cowgirls get the Blues

    Anybody else seen any of these movies and want them on dvd too? I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of them right now.

    I would definitely pick up Spanking the Monkey & Over the Edge if they came out. I have not seen any of the others except Johnny Got His Gun, but that was a long, long time ago. I would definitely like to check the others out on DVD. Regretably, I haven't heard anything about these films coming out on DVD.

    Johnny Got His Gun

    S.F.W.

    Spanking the Monkey

    Over the Edge

    I guess I'll have to check out the others. I have heard about them, just never saw them.

    Niagra Niagra stars Robin Tunney and I believe Jeremy Davies. It's a story about a girl who has Tourrettes (sp?) Syndrome. She meets this guy and they fall in love. Really sad ending, so I won't spoil it.
    Even Cowgirls Get the Blues is a Gus Van Sant film starring Uma Thurman. Nuff said. [​IMG]

    I'd love to see Kafka on DVD with a commentary.

    Put me down for Spanking the Monkey as well.

    (New Line, are you listening? A lot of people would like this title).

    I'd also like to see Living in Oblivion released along with the missing Soderbergh films (Kafka, King of the Hill, and Schizopolis).

    I was also going to post Schizopolis as my top pick. I'm suprised, given Steven's recent string of "home runs" that someone doesn't pump this out on DVD and slap a big "from the director of Erin Brockovich" on the front.
    I think Universal owns this one.
    Along the same lines, I'm also suprised to see Kafka and King of the Hill are still nowhere to be found.
    Also, on my list, is the wonderful "American Job"- the firm Chris Smith made before the "American Movie" documentary. It is currently only available on VHS- but I got an email from Chris a few months ago saying a DVD for AMERICAN JOB was due in 2002.
    Put me down for the complete works of Wim Wenders as well (or at least Until the End of the World & Wings of Desire)...

    Another vote for Spanking the Monkey !!
    ...also, Laws Of Gravity would be a cool film to own on DVD!

    Some more before I forget them:

    All Over Me

    Suburbia (the Eric Bogosian version)

    Twenty Bucks

    Maybe some of these are out already, I guess I haven't checked lately.

    There is one that I thought of earlier and I can't remember now. Damn, I miss the days where all I'd do after school is watch IFC and Sundance.
