Spillover from the Can't Wait topic in the "In the Theaters" area.

Yulek has already brought up Glengarry Glenn Ross (scheduled for a November release), which is an excellent title to begin with.

Yes, I recall seeing The Tenant on VHS with friends and our whole party being extremely weirded out. Without being spoilish...what was up with that tooth in the ....? Okay, can't say more.

For those with DVD players that can, er, overlook regional differences, the Region 2 version of Wim Wenders's Wings of Desire/Himmel Über Berlin is just out. A Region 1 version can't be far behind.

While I'm pointing around recklessly, there are two new substantial reads at Wim Wenders's site: the transcript of the panel discussion WIRED in Cannes: The Promise of Broadband that took place this summer and an extensive interview with the director.

Great. Now how long a wait will it be for a DVD of Der Amerikanische Freund/The American Friend?

Took me a while, but I found the answer: Anchor Bay Entertainment will release it along with Nick's Film and Notebook on Cities and Clothes -- get this -- next month.

FWIW, there are evidently unauthorized versions of Wenders's films already available in Japan.

Thanks for that David. I avoid unauthorized DVDs because they generally miss the mark on quality, so Anchor Bay gets my money. I checked the site but didn't find a listing for The American Friend, and a search yielded zip. I will have to wait and put it on preorder at the retailer when it shows up on their coming soon and TBA lists.

I just found out that the original TV miniseries version of screenwriter Dennis Potter's Pennies from Heaven is scheduled for a July 27, 2004 release! I've been wanting a good copy of that show since I first saw it on my local PBS station some 20 years ago. What took them so long???

In January, I briefly got to meet Bob Moog, one of the earliest pioneering creators of synthesizers, at NAMM, the music industry trade show. I've also been a big fan of experimental music, and am especially familiar with the San Diego, California, experimental music scene because I lived in San Diego for about 20 years.

Many of the best experimental musicians in San Diego are members of the Trummerflora Collective, a loose association of improvisers and composers.

But creativity knows no bounds! One of the Trummerflora musicians, Hans Fjellstad, has made a documentary film about about Robert Moog! It's called Moog and is currently premiering at Cinema Village in New York City. Theater dates are promised for San Francisco and San Diego, though specific dates for those cities haven't yet been chosen.

The DVD release date has been chosen, though. It'll be released by Plexifilm in Spring of 2005.

I'm looking forward to it.
