The Waiting Is the Hardest Part

Attention Tom Petty fans (I guess that's probably everybody, really. I mean, who doesn't love the T.P.?):

The new documentary Running Down a Dream will be available on dvd on October 16th only at Best Buy. It's playing in a few select theaters on the 15th, but not in PDX. It is playing in Seattle - so Crustodio, get your ass out there.

What is this Best Buy-only shit? How weird is that? It actually works out for me, since I have some in-store credit there. Why isn't this flick in the theaters? Surely there is an audience for this, at least in the art houses.

The film is directed by Peter Bogdanovich, who had an incredible early career (Last Picture Show,Paper Moon, What's Up. Doc?) and then tumbled into disrepute after troubled relationship with Cybill Shepherd and murdered playmate Dorothy Stratton. He's recently made a public comeback in his role as Dr. Melfi's therapist on The Sopranos.
