Room 237 (film review) (Frank’s Take).

Filmmaker Rodney Ascher’s amusingly off-kilter, observant and contemplative documentary ‘Room 237′ certainly proves that wild imaginations, sophisticated forethought, crafted misinterpretations and selective conspiracy theories can be artfully applied to almost anything th Filmmaker Rodney Ascher’s amusingly off-kilter, observant and contemplative documentary ‘Room 237′ certainly proves that wild imaginations, sophisticated forethought, crafted misinterpretations and selective conspiracy […]

Editorial – April 2013

Believing the outsider. Hello everyone Have you ever noticed that the most successful genre heroes aren’t human?

The Enlightenment Vision by Stuart Jordan (book review).

‘The Enlightenment Vision’ by Stuart Jordan is, to my mind, an odd book.

Considering this is basically a photo-book, you wouldn’t think it would be difficult to fit into my reading schedule but such is the woes of reviewing. However, as I’m […]
