Happy Holidays, Everyone!

Here's a special Christmas Card greeting from Terry Gilliam
(from Do Not Adjust Your Set, 1968)

New to our shelves this week:

Easy A
This winning contemporization of Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter stars a charismatic Emma Stone and features of host of strong supporting players, with Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson giving especially hilarious turns.

Angelina Jolie stepped into a role originally intended for Tom Cruise, and again proves herself a bad-ass extraordinaire in this engaging, well-constructed actioner by Phillip Noyce.

Soul Kitchen
Fatih Akin (Head On, Crossing the Bridge, The Edge of Heaven) directs this comic lark about food and music - staples of the soul.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
Oliver Stone attempts to recreate the Zeitgeist-capturing allure of his 1987 film, this time setting the story during the recent credit crisis and financial meltdown.
