    Corrections:
    1. First Cow is now available to rent from Scarecrow. It's even in our NEW Kelly Reichardt section in the Directors aisles!
    2. Speaking of the Directors section, in our excitement we forget to mention something. Having directed at least four films is the first step in a particular filmography being considered, but space is the real determining factor. Alexander Payne use to have his own designation in the Directors section, but at some point was swapped out with another director. With no plans for Downsizing in that section, maybe we can hold an Election to get him back?
