thanks for the schedule. Looks like I may miss "Glass John", but I'll be there for "Roughneck" in NYC.

What's the deal with the films at Asia Society? Ever been? Thursdays are a little trickier than fridays, I missed the one film i wanted to see "Heitai Yakuza". Seen or own the rest. Any news on DVD's?

later days
