THE DAMNED: DON'T YOU WISH THAT WE WERE DEAD gets a home video release date

After packing cinemas and collecting rave reviews around the world,   THE DAMNED: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead  is coming to home video on May 20th. Hailed as "excellent" by  Uncut , "fascinating" by  The Arts Desk ,and "funny, fast-moving and gloriously chaotic" by  The Hollywood Reporter , the film was directed/produced by Wes Orshoski, and is the first fully authorized documentary on punk pioneers The Damned. Ireland's  Hot Press  raves: " Orshoski came onto our radar with the acclaimed  Lemmy  documentary in 2011 [which he co-directed/produced] and has once again created a tour de force, presenting an entertaining and searingly honest depiction of the grievously overlooked punk legends."

THE TROUBLE WITH THE TRUTH  is currently available from Best Buy and Amazon for under ten bucks. The special edition DVD includes audio commentary track from director Jim Hemphill and star Lea Thompson.

In fact, if you purchase this film within the next 24 hours from one of the above links and you don't think it was worth the ten dollar investment I'll send you a Criterion Blu-Ray from my personal collection.


Theatrical Premiere Run at Film Forum  begins on  March 30 ! Home Video, DVD and VOD Release on  May 10 I Don't Belong Anywhere: The Cinema of Chantal Akerman explores some of the Belgian filmmaker’s 40 plus films, and from Brussels to Tel Aviv, from Paris to New York, it charts the sites of her peregrinations. An experimental filmmaker and nomad, Chantal Akerman shared with Marianne Lambert her cinematic trajectory, one that never ceased to interrogate the meaning of her existence. And with her editor and long-time collaborator, Claire Atherton, she examines the origins of her film language and aesthetic stance. I Don't Belong Anywhere includes excerpts from many films made throughout Akerman’s career, including Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai Du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles(1975), News from Home (1976), The Rendez-vous of Anna and Je, Tu, Il Elle (1974), South (1998), From the East (1993), From the Other Side (2002), Down There (2006), and what would be Chantal Ak
