Martin Scorsese turns 70 on Friday, and the man has never been busier. In the midst of a multitude of projects, he's currently shooting his next feature, "The Wolf Of Wall Street," but of course, he took some time out recently to talk about David Lean's masterpiece, "Lawrence Of Arabia," as it arrives in a brand new 4-disc set today (get that Christmas shopping done early, folks). But before we jump into that, let's rewind the clock slightly.

German avant-garde rockers Popol Vuh are producing a special limited box-set containing their scores for the Werner Herzog + Klaus Kinski buddypack of "Aguirre: The Wrath of the God," "Nosferatu," "Fitzcarraldo," and "Cobra Verde," plus "Heart of Glass," which features lead performances by hypnotized actors. Those not down with Herzog's latest (or dismayed that their favorite renegade director became a done-to-death Internet meme where all jokes go to die a million times over) will enjoy the trip down memory lane, as included in the collection is a near 100-page booklet featuring "unseen footage and images." 5,000 copies only, pre-order while they're hot at Amazon!

Call It 'Titans Of The Clash.' We Dare YouIt's only a couple of weeks since we were last extolling our love of seminal punk band The Clash, so we'll spare you the full shtick: in short, they're certainly the greatest of the punk bands, and possibly the single greatest band in the history of rock and roll. It seems that filmmakers have just cottoned on to that fact -- a few weeks back it was announced that Paul Viragh, writer of the terrible Ian Dury biopic "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll," was penning "Joe Public," about the band's frontman Joe Strummer. Now, word has emerged of a rival project, which threatens to see the other one consigned to history.
