New movies at Lane!

We here at Lane Library have always had an exceptional foreign film collection.  This summer we decided to increase our domestic and classic films.  We purchased about 200 movies, some of which are long overdue - "The Godfather", "Casablanca", "North by Northwest", "Psycho", "Hard Day's Night", "Rashomon", etc - and some are perhaps not as recognizable but are critically acclaimed or culturally important and should be in the collection - "Wisconsin Death Trip", "El Mariachi", "Hoop Dreams", "No Direction Home", etc.  No matter what you enjoy the most, we have a great movie for you in the New Movies section!  Although you will probably have good luck just browsing the New Movies and choosing one you've never heard of, I've gathered a small list of fantastic films in a few different genres.  Check them out and tell me what you think!
