New Yorker in October + Others

New Yorker has a pretty big month coming in October. They've already announced Jia Zhang-ke's Still Life, but you can add four more to their roster. Firstly, the omnibus French comedy Six in Paris [Paris vu par...], from directors Claude Chabrol, Jean Douchet, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Daniel Pollet, Eric Rohmer and Jean Rouch, which Eric mentioned yesterday. Then you have Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub's biblical Moses and Aaron, which was announced and delayed at the same time of Six in Paris. Then you also get Ousmane Sembene and Thierno Faty Sow's Camp de Thiaroye from 1987 and Hong Sang-soo's Woman on the Beach from 2006. Six streets on 14 October, Moses on the 21st and Camp and Woman on the 28th.

Lionsgate has announced their third and fourth entries into the Meridian Collection: Gus Van Sant's Drugstore Cowboy, with Matt Dillon, Kelly Lynch, James LeGros, Grace Zabriskie, Heather Graham and William S. Burroughs, and Fernando León de Aranoa's Mondays in the Sun [Los lunes al sol], with Javier Bardem and Luis Tosar. Both are pretty easy to find otherwise, but you can find them in their new editions on 21 October.

Wolfe will release two European films in October as well: Marco S. Puccioni's Shelter Me [Riparo - Anis tra di noi], with Maria de Medeiros, and Chris Kraus' Four Minutes [Vier Minuten], with Monica Bleibtreu; both will be out on 7 October.

TLA is releasing the documentary Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon, about porn actor Jack Wrangler, on 28 October. And, finally, Facets will have Arturo Ripstein's Divine [El evangelio de las Maravillas], which stars Francisco Rabal, on the same date.

I never saw Moses and Aaron, but if it's from the Schonberg opera, then I'm sold.

To the best of my knowledge, it is.
