DVD of the Week: "Walden- Diaries, Notes, and Sketches" (Jonas Mekas, 1969)



Hell, I haven't even seen this, but how could it not be our DVD of the Week? Mekas, or any experimental film for that matter, on DVD is a rarity. This may be expensive, but its an immediate must buy. 150 page booklet!? Are you kidding me??? This is a cinephile's dream DVD.

Yowza! If I had money, I'd be all over this. For anyone who hasn't read it, Jonas Mekas' book "Movie Journal: The New American Cinema" is pretty amazing. So buy it and this DVD set.

I now know what I'm asking for for my birthday. Thanks, James!

Also, I strongly second Jacob's recommendation of "Movie Journal."
