That Sinking Feeling (Bill Forsyth, 1979) – BFI Flipside.

95973_front

The late 1970s and early 1980s occupy a strange realm in our current affections of nostalgia.  While openly acknowledged as a problematic era for politics, riots and race/police relations being at an all time low, there has been a steady but gradual yearning for the age’s art.  This isn’t just in the traditional sense of nostalgia but quite a specific relationship; the era is currently being…

Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.  Part 4.

The ANS Synthesiser and the Final Parallel.

“Has man any hope of survival in the face of all the patent signs of impending apocalyptic silence?” Tarkovsky (1987, p.229)

Interview with Paul Wright (For Those In Peril).

For Those in Peril director Paul Wright

Paul Wright’s debut feature film, For Those In Peril, won many plaudits on its release and even managed a BAFTA nomination this year.  His film is richly layered and deeply moving fantastical tale of an isolated community who are at odds with the soul survivor of a tragedy at sea.  For Those In Peril is out now on DVD and a full article on the film can be found here.
