You can't even begin to imagine how hard it was for me to pick which movies to buy. At one point, I had about ten titles on me and because they weren't cheap, I ended up buying four. I'm so proud of my choices though. I took home a boxed set of Francois Truffaut's "The Adventures of Antoine Doinel", Sofia Coppola's "Lost In Translation", Rob Epstein + Jeffrey Friedman's "Howl", and Cinema 16: European Short Films featuring Christopher Nolan, Lars Von Trier, etc. Awesome 21st birthday gifts! My DVD collection's gotten so much better since I got here in LA.
As for my friends, they did really well too. They had to take home boxes because they bought a bunch of vinyl records. Berta even took home a 3D poster of The Beatles' Yellow Submarine.
I love Amoeba. It really is heaven on earth.
