Help me with Netflix, help yourself with GreenCine.

Only a couple of weeks after Agent Smithing my brother's early adopter, $10/month-for-life Netflix account, I've run out of movies I want to rent. Or more precisely, movies I want to rent that Netflix actually has. (Note: if you're reading this from Netflix, my brother lives with us now. As do his wife and their two lovely children. Coincidentally, after tiring of Pooh's various adventures, my four-year-old niece suddenly developed an interest in Ozu and Tarkovsky.)

So, please help me fill my Netflix queue with films I haven't thought to rent.

And in the mean time, sign yourself up at GreenCine, the San Francisco Pink Dot to Netflix's Kozmo. They have everything and a great film weblog. While you're at it, read this fascinating analysis of Netflix's DVD allocation system to see just how unprofitable my brother is for them.

[Update: thanks, Sacrifice is actually already in the mail, and Bottle Rocket's on the list. Paul Krugman recommends Wag the Dog. Here's my rental queue: Koyaanisqatsi, Dancer in the Dark (finally. I walked out of the theater after 10 min.), The Manchurian Candidate, Rashomon, Sokurov's Mother and Son. Watched and mailed back: Badlands (again), Hedwig & the Angry Inch, In the Bedroom. ]

[Unrelated: can anyone explain why I have the song, "Come on, be my baby tonight," from idiot David on The Real World: New Orleans stuck in my head? Whitney, where are you when I need you?]

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
