Subject: Film Sources? (8 of them!)

I've exhausted my resources and but still have a number of films I'm
searching for. I'm dividing them into 2 groups. In this first list, all
looking for is a source for the film (no need for public performance
licensing), preferably on 16mm or DVD, but VHS would suffice if that's
there is. We'll buy or rent:

"Has the Film Started?" (original title, Le Film est deja commence?) -
Maurice Lemaitre, 1951. I've found this on VHS at Facets, but wonder if
there's a 16mm or DVD anywhere.

"Straight and Narrow" - Tony Conrad, unknown year.

"Hotel Monterey" - Chantal Akerman, 1972. I've found this on VHS at
(not currently in stock), but is there a 16mm or DVD?

"Incense" - Takahiko Iimura, unknown year.

"Fly" - Yoko Ono, 1972.

"Lara Croft" and "Art of Loving" - Peggy Ahwesh, probably 1980's or

"Evaporation" - Leighton Pierce, probably 1990's or later.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
