Check It. Vintage movie posters & new DVDs.

A great coffee book table for film lovers is out this month, Starstruck: Vintage Movie Posters from Classic Hollywood. It includes the image above, from 1941's Citizen Kane and the forward is written by the great Martin Scorsese, which makes it a legit film book as far as I'm concerned.

Also: on DVD today, Coco Before Chanel (in which Audrey Tautou does a beautiful job of playing a young Coco Chanel) and British director Steve McQueen's Hunger, starring Michael Fassbender. Hunger is about the last weeks of the life of 27-year-old Irish republican hunger striker Bobby Sands' in 1981.
