I don't think it's worth a new thread, but I've seen Fay Grim.

I've never seen the prequel Henry Fool, but I don't think you necessarily need to, they do a pretty good job of going over the pertinant points during the course of the film.

It's not a bad movie, really. The first 2/3rds has a real charm to it. Parker Posey is good and the character interactions are a bit unrealistic, but funny. While it's a "spy thriller that doesn't take itself seriously" it's a really fun movie. Then the last 1/3rd decides to take itself super seriously and the whole thing goes to hell.

I don't know if I'd recomend it, per se, but I can think of worse movies to waste a couple hours on. Check it out when it hits DVD or IFC, probably.

That having been said, I don't know if anybody here would actually watch it? I just felt compelled to post because I'd actually seen something on the list.

Have never heard of Severance, but watching the trailer, I am intrigued. Plus, any movie to use ITCHYPOO PARK in the trailer cant be all bad, can it?

Two good reasons to see FAY GRIM is (of course!) the beautiful Parker Posey and the other is that Hal Hartley says this is the most 'Preston Sturges like' film he's done to date, so that's a huge plus as well... oh yeah, and Jeff Goldblum makes three reasons.

THE WENDEL BAKER STORY looks interesting as well.

I have no want or need to see Shrek.

Fay Grim is a near-simultaneous DVD release; it comes out on Tuesday.

I haven't seen it, but I liked Henry Fool -- didn't love it, but I find Hartley in general pretty hard to love.

They're not "new" per se. The made them years ago, but never aired them. They've been floating around on the internet for some time, and I think they're included on the DVD sets, but I'm not sure about that.
