MUST-READ interview with a video store owner

I'll have more to say about this article on Tuesday, but for now, you absolutely must read this wonderful interview conducted by filmmaker Alex Ross Perry with Joe Martin, owner of a Brooklyn video store on the verge of closing after ten years. They talk at length about the recent home video market and the changes it has seen and they defend the existence of not only video stores, but VHS tapes as well. Great read.

  2. I spent over seven years in video retail, so I can easily relate to much of what was said here.
