Long DescriptionUK Released DVD/Blu-Ray item. It MAY NOT play on regular US DVD/Blu-Ray player. You may need a multi-region US DVD/Blu-Ray player to play this item. A politically-charged, compelling drama, Rendition sees director Gavin Hood follow up the extraordinary, Oscar-winning Tsotsi with another challenging, quality piece of cinema. This time, his attention focuses on the story of a man who is kidnapped, and shipped off to be imprisoned abroad. The reason? Suspected terrorism. And his wife has no idea where he is and what's happened. In lesser hands, Rendition could have really struggled to make its mark, but Hood very much knows what he's doing, and his film is excellent, right up to--and including--its final reel. His cast help him immensely, with Alan Arkin and Meryl Streep offering terrific support to the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal. Rendition does have some problems. Its pace sometimes wavers a little, some of the roles are slighter than you'd like, and sometimes the American-based elements pull the film back. But these are minor gripes that seem unfair to level at an ambitious drama, that is fearless about addressing issues of morality. Tightly woven on the whole, and sticking in your head long after the end credits have rolled, Rendition is intelligent film-making, that pulls very few punches. Those after an action feast are clearly advised to head in the other direction; those looking for a film to engage the brain are very much welcome, and set to be richly rewarded. --Jon Foster

Thank you all for your patence and understanding during the last several weeks as we added new equipment to the web site. We are all finished with the hardware portion of the upgrade.

We still have changes coming for the web site. We will always be improving but we have a few big changes coming to the web site soon that will make things a little easier for everyone.

But the big hardware upgrade is finished. We now have two new servers that share the duty of serving up web pages, product data and pictures to you.

The two servers share the work load so neither one has to do it all and this should offer faster serverice on a regular basis. But when we need to perform backups or other maintenance on one of the machines, we can switch the system to use only the other server and you will never know.

We hope that this stops most, if not all, down time in the future. The site has become far to popular to be off line for any lenght of time.

Again, thanks for your understanding.
