Milestone (one of the best of the small DVD imprints) has just released three major films in impeccable DVD editions: "Why Has Bodhi-Dharma Left for the East?", the Charles Burnett collection "Killer of Sheep" (because it's not simply "Killer of Sheep" but a multidisc collection that includes "My Brother's Wedding") and "I Am Cuba". Certainly an eclectic selection, but also worthwhile.

On Doug Cummings's blog, there were entries about the AFI Fest; "The Terrorizers" was one of the films shown.

Went to see the press screening of "Xala"; Film Forum is having a Sembene retrospective.

Got the DVDs i ordered from France: watched Duras's "Nathalie Granger". Still find it a mesmerizing achievement, and it's hard to remember when Gerard Depardieu was so young! Also watched Akerman's "Les Rendez-vous d'Anna".
