In a unexpected coincidence the newest issue of Cinema Retro has just been published and it features a terrific in-depth article on Jack Cardiff’s 1968 film Girl On a Motorcycle by Dean Brierly. It’s definitely one of the most detailed pieces about Cardiff’s film that I’ve come across and it contains many beautiful images from the movie as well. After Cardiff passed away recently I was surprised by the lack of attention given to the film’s he directed in the numerous obits I read so it’s great to see Girl On a Motorcycle getting some much deserved critical consideration and praise. If you’re a fan of the film or just interested in the movie and Cardifff’s directing efforts, the latest issue of Cinema Retro is well worth picking up!
The latest issue also features great interviews with the American actors James Caan, Ernest Borgnine and Harry Northup as well as actress Karen Black, articles on various Michael Winner films including the great Charles Bronson vehicle Chato’s Land (1972) and one of my favorite horror films from the ’70s, The Sentinel (1977). You’ll also find a brief piece about the early films made by Clint Eastwood (The Beguiled, Play Misty for Me and Breezy), which I enjoyed reading since his early horror films are often overlooked and I believe that The Beguiled and Play Misty for Me are two of Clint Eastwood’s best movies.
