Adventure Time! New Releases for July 10

It’s a big New Release week for television, documentaries (particularly ones about the UK), and entertainment for our younger patrons. Here’s the list:

BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc

@ = Available for sale in the store (but we can special order anything, see us for details)

Our online store is still undergoing a revamp--please email us at scarecrow@scarecrow.com or give us a call at (206) 524-8554 if you need to buy something without setting foot in the store.

 

MARGARET—Our colleague Matt says of You Can Count On Me director Kenneth Lonergan’s long-awaited film: “[it’s] an ambitious, messy, almost jerry-rigged ensemble drama that tackles such diverse subjects as young womanhood, Middle East peace, 9/11, adult romance, survivor’s guilt and more, all without for a second lacking in authorial confidence or thematic coherence. Margaret is a total masterpiece.”  BLU 

 

THE FLOWERS OF WAR—Christian Bale stars as an American stranded with a group of young women in an abandoned church during the Japanese invasion of China in the new film from director Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, House of Flying Daggers).  BLU

 

AMERICAN REUNION—The Pie gang gathers for their high school reunion and a pleasant reminder of why you loved the raunchy original.  BLU

 

ADVENTURE TIME: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON—Quality entertainment for both kids and adults. Our colleague Spenser says in the recent City Arts that “it’s easily the most uninhibitedly imaginative and delightfully bizarre show on television.” @

 

THE SAPHEAD and THE DEVIL’S NEEDLE—Kino Classics presents several silent films this week: Buster Keaton’s first starring role in 1920’s The Saphead, and Norma Talmadge as a drug-addled artist muse in 1916’s The Devil’s Needle. The collection includes two other rare tales of vice and redemption: 1913’s Inside the White Slave Traffic and 1915’s Children of Eve.   BLU  @
