Seriously. While the local blue box has limited selection there's a LOT of stuff you can find in their online warehouse. Heck, I even found Wong Kar-Wai's 'Happy Together,' which is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to see... and 'My 20th Century' and 'Closely Watched Trains' too. Recently we've watched 'Shoot the Piano Player' and the '95 'Richard III' (SO great) and 'How to Draw a Bunny' and several bios of Hockney and Francis Bacon. It is a fine, fine, thing.
Hell, you can see "How to draw a bunny" on IFC. I have it recorded from there. Whoopee.
If it weren't for reality, I would be perfectly all right.
