Lessons from Mahalla, Paris: what future for Egypt’s fractured revolution?

Lessons from Mahalla, Paris: what future for Egypt’s fractured revolution?

When the Arab Spring erupted in 2011, the post-modern era of skepticism and pessimism in relation to positive, progressive political change was broken, albeit momentarily. The sight of thousands of people on the streets, demonstrating against corrupt politicians and their...

In an age where Satnav offers a guiding light through places unknown, and Google Street View reduces us all to that tiny orange man, it’s easy to assume that the thrills of individual exploration have been lost to a universalised...

The Master - review

The Master – review

Paul Thomas Anderson, the director of There Will Be Blood, Magnolia, Boogie Nights and Punch Drunk Love, has – in the eyes of many critics – never made a bad film; he continues this fine run of form with The Master. That is not to say that there are not...

Tabu and the Ghosts of Silent Cinema

I walked into the screening of Tabu expecting to see one of my favourite films of the year. If you follow any pre-release chatter on blogs or Twitter, you’ll likely have heard of this mysterious Portuguese object – a work praised for its originality and eccentricity, by a new auteur...

Sgt. Andy (Is Going to Help Me) – An appreciation of XTC in five notes

1. It’s becoming harder and harder to take seriously announcements that bands are breaking up. The new economics of the music business call for most artists to be consistently ‘active’, always ready to generate new products and content, or dare risk slipping from prominence. This extends to bands supposedly declared...

Timothy Nordhoff – No Place

My current photographic subjects often relate back to British traditions, culture or industry. Working with a 4×5 camera and traditional negative film I often try to express subtleness in my work, often keeping the image muted drawing on the simplistic qualities within the scene, allowing the photograph to attempt to...
Review: T.M. Wolf - Sound

Review: T.M. Wolf – Sound

T. M. Wolf’s debut novel, Sound, is a book, a film and a swirly, scratching record all in one. Writen by a young New Jerseyite, the ‘experimental’ novel is a story about everything that you don’t say, all with dialogue, thoughts, memories, ideas and background sounds set out like musical...
Review: Lower Dens at Hoxton Bar & Grill

Review: Lower Dens at Hoxton Bar & Grill

Illuminated by a moving projection of something akin to a fuzzy 80s tv screen, Lower Dens opened up last Thursday’s show with hypnotic aplomb, blasting the intimate Hoxton venue with an extended introduction of delightfully menacing and mournfully tremulous guitars. It is these kind of atmospheric, mesmerising, slow-build introductions that...

A note from the editors…a call for submissions…New Cartography!

Review: Nostalgia For The Light

Review: Nostalgia For The Light

Chilean filmmaker Patricio Guzmán has built his reputation on the strength of a number of political documentaries about his native Chile. Two manifest cases in point are his tripartite masterpiece, The Battle of Chile (1975-79) and Salvador Allende (2004), both of which recount the fall of the Marxist Allende government...
