New WORLD PICTURE on 'Left': PT Anderson, Hollis Frampton, Vincente Minnelli and much more

Screenshot from The Cobweb (Vincente Minnelli, 1955). Read Agustín Zarzosa's article on this film in the new issue of World Picture
It's that wonderful time of year when a new issue from one of Film Studies For Free's favourite journals World Picture hits the open access e-stands. The brilliant contents in issue 8 on 'Left' are listed in full and linked to below.

FSFF particularly enjoyed the essay on Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights by the legendary film scholar Tanya Modleski as well as Alexander García Düttmann on Hollis Frampton's 1971 film (nostalgia) (a version of which may be viewed online here) and Agustín Zarzosa on The Cobweb and the Politics of Decoration.

If you're in (or could be in) the environs of Toronto on November 7-8, 2013, you may be interested in attending the very convivial, annual World Picture conference. This year it treats the keyword 'willing' and boasts the participation of very fine keynote speakers: Linda Zerilli (University of Chicago) and Davide Panagia (Trent University).
