deadman.jpgI see some great titles added at Amazon France today.

Quite a number of new titles have been listed to be released by Aventi and BAC – including a number of US ‘art house’ films. I am certainly hoping for good quality releases that are coded for all regions!

Dead Man is scheduled for release by BAC on November 5th, 2008.

This Black and White shot ‘anti-western’ from Jim Jarmusch features Johnny Depp and one of my favourite Jarmusch films.

Sailor & Lula is the French title for David Lynch’s Wild at Heart, and will also be released by BAC on November 5th.

The Darren Aronofsky movie Requiem for a Dream has been scheduled by Aventi for release on November 18th, 2008.

This clever though somewhat disturbing movie features Jennifer Connelly, Jared Leto and Ellen Burstyn.

Another great film that I am excited to see listed is C’est arrive pres de chez vous – which is known to the rest of the world as Man Bites Dog – due for release December 2nd.

This Belgian movie is in French, so as well as potential region coding problems there may not be any English language support either – but I can hope!

Other releases listed by Aventi include Golden Door, Le Déclin de l’Empire Americain + Les Invasions Barbares, Jacques La Mecque, Fairplay, La Guerre du Feu, Itinéraire d’un Enfant Gaté – all due on November 18th, 2008.

Releases from BAC include Scorpion, La Véritable Histoire du Petit Chaperon Rouge, The Barber, Scary Movie 2, Chasseurs de Dragons and Miss Potter – all scheduled for November 5th, 2008.
