This issue we take inspiration from Inherent Vice, a psychedelic gumshoe yarn with a cast of hundreds by American director, Paul Thomas Anderson.
We speak to the legendary director about the trials of getting each one of his idiosyncratic visions realised and the unstable magic that comes from working on a film set.
The issue also contains an interview with Gilbert Shelton, the creator of classic counterculture comic ‘The FabulousFurry Freak Brothers’, a survey of Anderson’s closest collaborators and an investigation into the illusive author, Thomas Pynchon.
Also, in our reviews section: Michael Keaton tries to deny his inner Birdman, Steve Carell is on team Foxcatcher, Peter Strickland introduces us to The Duke of Burgundy, David Oyelowo marches to Selma, Frederick Wiseman tours the National Gallery, Clint Eastwood takes aim in American Sniper, Reese Witherspoon goes native in Wild, Charlie Lyne explores teenage dreams in Beyond Clueless, Oscar Isaac experiences A Most Violent Year, Jessica Hausner experiences Amour Fou, Eric Rohmer reveals The Green Ray, and we head Into The Woods (with a sing-a-long review).
Plus exclusive interviews with Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Alex Garland, Anna Kendrick, Jessica Hausner and Frederick Wiseman, plus all the best home ents releases from the UK and US and reports from film festivals in Rotterdam and Vienna.
