I don't mean to pick on you today, dwhudson, honest. However, since the GreenCine catalog HAS Canterbury Tales starring Pasolini himself as Chaucer and also starring the incomparable Tom Baker (Dr. Who), shouldn't you mention that it is the middle film in the director's "Trilogy of Life" which started with The Decameron and ended with Arabian Nights?

I guess The Decameron is the only title out of the 3 that's actually available for rental anyway...

Hamano, hamano, hamano... [g]

Yes, I could have mentioned Canterbury Tales. As it was, that Eclection text was already twice as long as it should have been. I started out intending to write about three mid-60s titles only but, at the hour it was written, couldn't rouse up the discipline (you remember the famous line, something like, I'd have written you a shorter letter, but I didn't have the time).

Anyway. Good call, and your post will hopefully encourage everyone to check out all the Pasolini titles!

Sadly, not ALL... as you yourself mention in the article, Teorema isn't out on DVD. Maybe they can find the VHS if there's an artsy rental house in the vicinity. It's a pity. I love movies with floating maids.

I was just reading Maigochan's article about FLCL and this thought occurred to me. If a title has a related Eclection article, there should be a link from the page describing the title to the Eclection article. I'm sure it'll help educate members, and help them make rental decisions. It will certainly enrich the GreenCine experience!

Or just attach the Eclection article as one of the reviews for a title.

Right now there are still only 3 or 4 pages of Eclections, so we should do this soon!

that could be a little company spider software, crawling through the editorial material and linking every mentioned movie to the associated article, in a little "greencine article links" box on the catalog page. primers, interviews, promos. hmm, promos like the eclection campaign, is it too smarmy to push PR at your customers, in the catalog? ick i think that would make me barf slightly.

Actually, we'llbe making some tweaks to the Eclection set-up sometime soon, and along these lines. So these are good suggestions, thanks! We definitely don't want to shove these things down people's throats but it does seem natural to cross-reference the reviews. Some of the eclection titles do have the "GreenCine Special" icon on them but that doesn't directly connect. So, yes, we will be improving this a bit in the next month. Thanks again.

There's a nice article currently running in the Eclection about Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami. But he only has 3 films in the GreenCine catalog. The author of the article might have easily put in a link to the ENTIRE Farsi/Persian/Iranian collection at GreenCine, which would be just these dozen films.

I do wish some company would snap to it and release more Iranian films on DVD.
