Mumble and Silence

Benten Films has announced their second DVD release, two films by Aaron Katz: Quiet City and Dance Party USA. Following in the footsteps of their first release LOL, Katz's films also fit into the mumblecore subgenre that the kids like so much. The set, which includes both titles, will be released 29 January.

I also neglected to mention Strand's pending release of Apitchatpong Weerasethekul's Syndromes and a Century for the 15th of January when I did my round-up of the notable releases announced for 2008. The film made small rounds across the country this past summer, and I hear it's wonderful. This is coming from someone who loved Tropical Malady so much he just about foamed at the mouth.
