WHAT’S NEW & COOL THIS WEEK:
This week brings the release of the indie dramedy GREENBERG from director Noah Baumbach (THE SQUID AND THE WHALE), starring Ben Stiller as a New Yorker-turned-Los Angelin0 trying to figure his life out in the process.

Also out this week is the romantic comedy THE BOUNTY HUNTER, starring Jennifer Anniston and Gerard Butler about a…yep, you guessed it…bounty hunter assigned with the task of tracking down a woman on the run who just happens to be his estranged ex-wife.

And hitting shelves are a few festival favorites (and Gordon and the Whale favorites) from this past year, including SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS, as well as ARTOIS THE GOAT.

THE TITLE-O-THE WEEK I’LL BE RUSHING OUT TO BUY:
Seeing as how Christopher Nolan’s latest mind-bender INCEPTION finally hits theaters this week after being one of the most anticipated films of the year, I can’t wait to delve into one of the director’s first mind-benders: INSOMNIA. starring Al Pacino, Robin Williams, and Hilary Swank, the film is about two L.A. detectives attempting to solve a murder in a town that never sleeps (literally…the sun never goes down). If INCEPTION is about dreams, this one is definitely about nightmares. Nightmares that are sure to look amazing on Blu-ray!
