I subscribe to that fantastic film magazine "Empire" from England and I've noticed that many times films are released on DVDs there long before here.  I suppose it all has to do with the various distribution deals the film companies make.

I've just subscribed to another British film magazine called "Total Film."  Any of your folks across the pond know anything about it?  Sounded pretty good in a blurb I read, but "Empire" would be hard to beat.

I think I checked ebay a while back and they only had it for region 2 (which is UK, isn't it) and I needed region 1.  So maybe you'll be in luck.  Is Europe region 2, also?

OMG, don't get me started about ebay.  I owe them my soul, I've spent so much there.  My greatest find was a complete, brand new set of all 18 LOTR fan club magazines.  PRICELESS!  They have the most fantastic articles about everything connected with the films that I've ever seen.  Marvelous photos, too.  Hope you get All I Want.  It's one of my absolute favorites.  Have you ever seen it?

Is this a good film?  What is Elijah's part?  I recall seeing it aired on HBO some time last year, but didn't pay much attention to it

Do you mean "All I Want" or "Chain of Fools"?

Most people would think I was crazy saying this (though not on this forum) but I'm not really sure.  It's Elijah, that's all I care.  I do know Salma Hayek is in it and I think it was made in Australia.  There was a description of the story line at amazon.com when I pre-ordered it, but I don't remember anymore.  I'm sure someone else can chime in here who knows the answer.

It's a good movie. Strange, offbeat, funny. Elijah gets a good character that broke a bit from his "type."

Barber Kresk (Steve Zahn) is a loser -- he isn't good at his job, he's been tossed out of his home, and his wife just dumped him for the marriage counselor (isn't that a breach of professional ethics?). Now he's depressed, and contemplating suicide. And yes, things get worse: a criminal named Avnet (Jeff Goldblum) has stolen three priceless coins, and decided to blackmail Bollingsworth (Tom Wilkinson), his billionaire partner in crime. After Kresk overhears this, he almost gets shot -- and Avnet ends up impaled on a pair of barbers' scissors.

Now Kresk is in a considerably nastier situation, so he steals the gun and the coins. But things take a sharp turn when he hires a hit man named Mikey (Elijah Wood), and discovers that the hit man is only seventeen and emotionally traumatized by his parents' suicide. And that Kresk is falling for the cop/Playboy model Sgt. Meredith Kolko (Salma Hayek), and that his nephew Scottie (Devin Drewitz) has now swallowed the coins. Now Kresk is in over his head, and has to deal with the strange and sometimes dangerous people around him.


sounds like a riot to me!

Thanks for coming to the rescue, deenan.  Yes, this does sound like a riot.  It's not listed in my Leonard Matlin book.  How long ago was it made?

(I made it to 100 !)

Whoopee!  My "Chain of Fools" DVD arrived today from amazon.com and I'm going to watch it as soon as I get off the forum.  Guess I'd better make a pot of coffee -- it's going to be a late night.
