Hot on the heels of last week’s 4/20 release of Cheech & Chong’s Hey Watch This, 4/27 brings two new releases from Hal Hartley. Both films are available on DVD from Microcinema and as MP4 downloads on the Possible Films website. First up is PF2: Possible Films vol. 2, the first new material from Hal since Fay Grim way back in 2006. It’s a series of short films made while he was on his European Vacation. Second is the re-release of Surviving Desire. The original release was pretty bad. The sync was soft, there was a bogus 5.1 soundtrack (the film was recorded mono) and the picture was pretty weak. We re-mastered the films a few years ago for some foreign releases, and I authored the DVD myself, so I can vouch for the quality of the films. I also designed the covers, which I’m really happy about.
