Romance & DVD

Just a heads up for all your Aussie fans of musicals or Kate Winslet (or, I suppose, James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Mandy Moore, etc) that John Turturro's Romance & Cigarettes is getting a direct-to-DVD release in November. Not sure on exactly what date, but my DVD service Quickflix has it listed to hire with "Coming in November" beside it. So, this means we'll finally be able to see Turturro's gangster musical featuring a, supposed, great performance by goddess Winslet.

Place Romance & Cigarettes next to the cinematic releases of films like Hairspray, Across the Universe, Sweeney Todd, Once, Enchanted and even Richard Kelly's Southland Tales - not to mention music biopics like Control, I'm Not There and La Vie en Rose - and fans of the musical genre are getting a neverending feast of singing and dancing.

Dear Glenn Dunks,

I contact you by comment because I didn’t find any other way to do it.

I would like to introduce to you Mperience (, a web
platform on which you can share in a brand new way movies, tv-series,
music, art, and books. It also allows you to blend videos of artistic content with your own words, simply creating short stories called Memes
that you can spread to a wide audience by a simple click.

As you can see, we have many themes in common with your blog and we
would like to publish on Mperience some of your articles.
Actually we already inserted your post [Romance & DVD] on our page dedicated
to [Romance & Cigarettes] (
We’ll appreciate if you’ll put on your blog the Mperience’s reference, just copying and pasting a html code that I’ll give you in a second

I hope that we could keep in touch and collaborate also in the future.
So, if you are interested, please don’t hesitate to contact me for further information, questions or suggestions
