Happy New Year, Everyone!
I am now completely skint. OK, the holidays and all that, but also i just discovered that one of my favourite films of all time, Lars von Trier's "Europa" (called "Zentropa" in the U.S.A. because Americans get confused easily and there was already a film called "Europa, Europa") has finally been released on DVD in Canada. And so i went to my favourite shop, Video + Books, and they only had it in a deluxe, 2-disc edition, at $39.88.
Well of course i bought it. I had no choice. And i don't begrudge the expense: you cannot put a price on art. But i won't be sending out for pizza tonight!
