Movie: A Journal of Film Criticism launches

Today sees the launch of Movie: A Journal of Film Criticism, which is a free-to-access, online reinvention of Movie, involving members of the original editorial board and critics who have more recently entered the field. The first issue contains articles by George Toles on ‘The Shop Around the Corner’ and Deborah Thomas on John Sayles’ ‘Limbo’. Closer to home, there are pieces by Doug Pye on ‘No Country for Old Men’ and ‘The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada’, PhD student Lucy Fife Donaldson on ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ and John Gibbs on ‘The Cry of the Owl’. It also includes an excellent tribute to Ian Cameron, publisher and designer of the original Movie, written by V.F. Perkins, and reprints of one of his most important articles, ‘Films, Directors and Critics’. Read more here.

About Lisa Purse

I am a lecturer in film and write about the relationship between film style and the politics of cinematic representation. My current work looks at digital special effects and representation in the action film. I also try to find time to play the odd videogame.
