One o the last major lm estivals o the year, this month,London was overcome with lmmaking talent. Giving pre-mieres to the likes o Fantastic Mr. Fox, Nowhere Boy and A Single Man, the 53rd annual BFI London Film Festivalwas quite the spectacle, and lm suitably takes centre stagethis issue. As Hollywood continues to disregard all integritywith blockbusters like 2012 (given a scathing 1 star reviewon pg. 42), sure they make their money back, but there’snothing stopping the big studios rom instilling a betterscript and some creative orces in the production. Artisticintegrity doesn’t mean box oce ailure, Te Dark Knightis a prime example, and when a great script, which not evenwriter/director Roland Emmerich could argue is on showin 2012, is put to the screen by a visually interesting andtalented lmmaker, such as Chris Nolan or numerous otherindividuals out there crying out or a chance on a studiopicture, the results can be remarkable. Te Box is that lm.Public opinion has been split, unsurprising given the lmwas marketing in America as a Cameron Diaz movie ratherthan an inventive release rom the director o DonnieDarko, but given the chance on a studio lm, Richard Kellymade an interesting piece, more expansive and innovativethan 2012 could ever dream o. Aside the aorementioned lms, in our London FilmFestival round-up we also bring you reviews o Up InTe Air, the riotously unny Bad Lieutenant: Port O CallNew Orleans and Te Road, plus a rat o smaller projectshopeul o nding a distributor or a cinematic release in2010. Likely the last rom now shut-down boutique labelParamount Vantage, you’ll also nd Carriers in our reviewsection, and the new lm rom Gerard Butler, Law AbidingCitizen, which should put memories o Te Ugly ruth tobed with the Scottish actor starring as good guy gone badas he seeks retribution against the corrupt legal system.Tough it has been out or a while now in the States, StevenSoderbergh’s Te Girlriend Experience eventually lands inthe UK come December, and while porn star-turned-actressSasha Grey was in town or the premiere, we sat down orchat with the lady dubbed ‘the dirtiest girl in the world’.Set to break in 2010, Dawes have been tirelessly tour-ing and building reasonable an base or the last year across America. With their album ‘North Hills’ gaining criticalacclaim, their only problem has been getting it into enoughears, but now on the cu o something major, the new yearwill almost certainly bear ruit or the Caliornian band.We get to grips with their history on the Malibu beachesbeore heading inland to North Hills and a olk rock sound.Coast-to-coast, Surer Blood are rom Florida and anotherexample o the resurgent sur rock scene. Recently wow-ing crowds at New York’s CMJ estival, don’t be surprisedi Surer Blood are this year’s Wavves at legendary provingground SXSW come March. We reveal why you’ll be hearinga lot more rom them in the coming months.In our art section, Brandon Schaeer shows how it’sdone when it comes to poster design. Tere’s no doubtstudios have taken it up a notch on their eort, but whenyou put them alongside Brandon’s work, there really is nocompetition. First eaturing her stunning paintings a coupleo years ago, you might not have seen the breathtakingcolour in Françoise Nielly’s art beore now, but aterwards,you’ll be eagerly awaiting new pieces. Stéan Le Dû roundsthe art eatures, and similar to our recent dialy Danbo diaryphotospread, Stéan ollows the lie o two Stormtroopersexploring earth in search o the rebel scum.Once again on the cover, our style spreads are becom-ing more and more inuential. Ruud Baan borrowed a bikerom Studio RAAR, and with a sleek wardrobe in tow, putstogether a great winter look, though you might have tothrow on a jacket i you live in the colder parts o the world.Back or a second time, Anoush Abrar and Aimée Hovingprovide the most glamorous satellite dish maintenanceyou’ll see in a long time, parading the rootops in a highlysophisticated style. Lastly, Igor ermenon recalls a classicFrench era, and making you yearn or the summer monthsunder the gaze o the glaring sunlight, lounges by the poolto orget about the onset o winter. Enjoy the issue.
