Resources for December 7, 2015

Smith, Imogen Sara. "In a Lonely Place." The Cinephiliacs #28 (November 17, 2013) ["While it can be fun to talk to critics who spend their time keeping up with contemporary cinema, Peter is glad to bring on Imogen Sara Smith, who has always dived into cinema's past worlds. The author of Buster Keaton: The Persistence of Comedy and In Lonely Places: Film Noir Beyond the City talks about her initial love of film via the Great Stoneface, her desire to write long in order to thoroughly engage with a topic, and her love of Pre-Code's subversive pleasures. The two also dive deeply into the many ends and odds of the strange cycle of film noir, engaging with questions of genre, psychology, and some underrated hits, before ending with one of noir's canonical masterpieces: Nicholas Ray's In A Lonely Place, a film so brutal in its depiction of love by being at first so intoxicating."]

Atkinson, Sarah, Dario Llinares and Neil Fox. "Goodbye Dragon Inn." The Cinematologists #6 (May 13, 2015)

Llinares, Dario and Neil Fox. "The Thing; The Fly; Rollerball; (Sci-Fi Special Part 1)." The Cinematologists #7 (June 4, 2015) ["The Fly, Demon Seed, The Thing and Rollerball are all discussed in the context of what the science fiction as a key cinema genre.
