Film Studies For Free continues with its roundup of recent offerings from online film studies journal by catching up with the last two issues posted at Kinema: a Journal for Film and Audiovisual Media.

Lots of good stuff here, but FSFF particularly enjoyed Alessandro Zir’s essay on Paranoid Park, Antonio Sanna on the connections between the Alien series of films and Bram Stoker’s Dracula novel, and Des O’Rawe’s study of Godard’s Film Socialisme.
