As ZOE GOODALL argues, however, its attempts to balance fidelity to the story with contemporary gender norms ultimately have uneven results. Goodall, Zoe Critical essay Jun 1, 2019 3087
American Horror GENRE AND THE POST-RACIAL MYTH IN GET OUT: Rife with symbolism and social commentary Jordan Peele's debut feature effectively employs and subverts well-worn horror tropes, constituting a work that is as entertaining as it is politically charged As ANTHONY CAREW explores, the film functions as both a scathing satire of liberal racism and an evocation of the everyday fears that African-American people must endure.

Building the Fourth Wall: ARCHITECTURE AND THE MOVING IMAGE: Film has a long and varied history of interacting with architecture, revealing a cinematic fascination with the aesthetic qualities, narrative possibilities and symbolic connotations of buildings.

Lost in Landscape: NATURE AND DISPLACEMENT INISLAND OF THE HUNGRY GHOSTS Juxtaposing the human suffering and brutal bureaucracy of a Christmas Island detention centre with the perpetual cycles of the surrounding environment, Gabrielle Brady's film is an unusually poetic documentary representation of Australia's refugee policies.

Spectres of Childhood: MAGIC AND MEMORY IN THE SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE: One of the most remarkable films to emerge from Spain in the 1970s, Victor Erice's debut feature is a beautiful, eerie tale of life after the Spanish Civil War, channelled through the experiences and imagination of a young girl.
