Screenonline in September

Filed under: Screenonline — Michael @ 9:00 am

The new Screenonline homepage for September 2008 has just been published, including a look at the GPO Film Unit, the Free Cinema movement and BFI-funded animation.

I wrote most of the last collection, including the introduction and individual entries on Anthony Gross and Hector Hoppin’s Round the World in 80 Days, Joan and Peter Foldes’ A Short Vision (1955), Peter King’s Thirteen Cantos of Hell, Mel Calman’s The Arrow (1969), Abu’s No Arks (1969), Antoinette Starkiewicz’s High Fidelity (1976) and Martyn Pick’s Signature (1990) – and the collection also revives older pieces on the Quay Brothers’ Nocturna Artificialia (1979) and Street of Crocodiles (1986).

My other new Screenonline work includes pieces on the recent Timothy Spall vehicle Pierrepoint (2005), James Bond films Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), some turn-of-the-20th-century films from the Warwick Trading Company – Feeding the Tigers, Highland Reel and Metropolitan Fire Brigade Turn-Out (all 1899).
