David and Brenda are perfect for each other, and everyone knows it except David and Brenda. After a break-up, they each experience their own rough patch.

A chance encounter brings them together on the streets of New York at a particularly bad time. David invites Brenda to the opening of his first photography exhibit and the stage is set for a night of drinking and flirting which leads to an untraditional proposal of how they can be together without getting back together. A sharply observed, un-romantic comedy by writer/director Mel Rodriguez III, IN STEREO is a stylish and striking first feature that offers an unflinching look at the complexity of modern relationships.

Disguised as an educational film. Stereo purports to be a report on the "Canadian Academy of Erotic Inquiry's" experiments to induce telepathy in eight experimental subjects. It follows the effects of the experiment using the theoretical framework of the parapsychologist Luther Stringfellow. The film is virtually silent except for commentary by the experimenters.

"From STEREO to VIDEO" is a visual essay by Caelum Vatsndal focusing on Cronenberg's early life in a Jewish intellectual household, his initial aspirations to be scientist or writer, enrolling in University of Toronto – where he saw the film "Winter Kept Us Warm" made by a UT alumnus and featuring familiar locations and people he knew – where he then embarked on a series of short films. The essay then follows his early film career from SHIVERS through VIDEODROME noting how Cronenbergian elements are carried over from film-to-film. - Eric Cotenas and Gary Tooze

British hip-hoppers Stereo MCs perform songs from their chart-topping album "Connected" in this concert video. Founded in 1985 by rapper Rob B. and DJ Nick "The Head" Hallam, the group hit the big time in 1990 with "Elevate My Mind," the first-ever British rap single to chart in the United States. But the band's biggest breakthrough came with the 1992 album "Connected," which featured several funky hit singles. Extras include five music videos.
Going for that 50 television soundtrack Stereo was hell bent on putting out a video that was artsy and fun. They definitely knew how to inject fun into a skate vid. So many video part look painfully forced, it's nice to see the Stereo crew having a blast. I have to say I love to see a good vert part. Mike Frasier delivered that via a giant half pipe. Killer stuff. Damn you, street skating! No one builds ramps any more. So, anyway... A Visual Sound is a fun vid, but it's always hard to look back and think about the standards of the mid-90's compared with this 2008 re-issue. The retro-value of this box set is very cool. It was a bit too artsy for my taste, but who the hell am I, right? One of the best facets of this disc is the bonus commentary by Jason Lee and Chris Pastras. Since I wasn't a big fan of the music they used, watching it with the commentary going was awesome. I highly recommend this option.
