More new downloads
As most of you know - we rotate titles in and out of the download library to keep it fresh and not overwhelm folks with a kajillion titles to choose from. Last week we added a few new downloads but never got around to telling you what was new. Well - better late than never. Just added - a classic French Foreign Film called Rififi. Here's a preview. This was one of the best crime movies ever made, and the story is about an impossible jewel heist. If you like the Sopranos, Oceans Eleven, or the Mission Impossible series, you will love this film. Rififi is the first major film about a bunch of hardened criminals pulling off the crime of the century. It features an amazing scene - when they are pulling off the job, and for the most part.. the film is very very quiet - which adds tremendously to the filmic tension. Of course - crime doesn't pay - and after they pull off the perfect crime - it is, as usual the human factor that does them in. Great movie.
Also new in the download video library is Mind Snatchers starring Christopher Walken and Ronnie Cox. Another terrific movie - way before its time, about a bad seed soldier (Walken) who gets a brain implant device to keep his out of control libido in check. If you liked One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, or The Manchurian Candidate, you'll enjoy this little known gem from wayback. Here's a preview, or you can watch or download the whole movie. Cheers!
