Well we're just both surprised (since this happened over the summer, but better late than never!) and tickled to death that San Francisco Magazine has kindly chosen us for their Best of the Bay list.

Stay-at-home film school
In the five years since we first picked GreenCine, this San Francisco online-rental company has gone from good idea to local institution. Think of it as Netflix mashed up with your local independent video store. It offers the wide selection of obscure genres and art films that cinephiles crave, along with the helpful advice you’d normally get from the person behind the counter. Intrigued by film noir but embarrassed because you don’t really know what that means? GreenCine explains the genre and recommends its favorites. Instead of a list of popular rom-coms, the site offers the Top 10 Environmental Documentaries That Don’t Rhyme with a Schminconvenient Schmuth, plus interviews with hot new indie filmmakers and discussions about the best cult vampire films. greencine.com

Straight from an inside source at a Hollywood studio's independent studio, word is that Roman Polanski, the Academy Award-winning Polish-French film director, writer, actor, and producer, may be temporarily allowed back in the United States soon after 30 years away. Polanski has been considered by US authorities to be a fugitive from justice since 1978 after pleading guilty to the rape of a 13 year old girl. He's been looking for a project that would put him back on the good side of the American government, and allow him to be considered again for American citizenship but the US will likely not allow him to stay beyond the three months needed to complete a new project.
