Hardball tactics, broken promises, teary confrontations…it's all in a day's work for the brave Chinese third-graders running for class monitor in the documentary Please Vote for Me, excerpted on Wholphin No. 6. The latest DVD collection from Dave Eggers' publishing house, McSweeney's, also features a look at tropical reptiles (Safari), an adaptation of a Roddy Doyle story (New Boy), and Juno's Michael Cera as a sweetly flummoxed gentleman caller in the surreal Darling Darling ($20, Store.McSweeneys.net).
