Film Studies For Free was thrilled that a new issue of MOVIE: A Journal of Film Criticism — the best yet of this relaunched journal — has recently hit the online newstands.

Issue 3 contains part 2 of the marvellous Fritz Lang Dossier, with contributions by, among others, V. F. Perkins, Adrian Martin, Peter Evans, Stella Bruzzi, Ed Gallafent, and Deborah Thomas.

There are also excellent articles on Preminger‘s film art, Psycho and its remake, and filmmakers’ choices by Christian Keathley, Alex Clayton and John Gibbs.

Links to all items are set out for you below.

This issue edited by Douglas Pye and Michael Walker. Designed by Lucy Fife Donaldson, John Gibbs, and James MacDowell.

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.

Fruity film and television studies links!

Due to a devastating case of total PC meltdown (following painful months of on-and-off digital trouble and strife), Film Studies For Free brought you nothing new for over a week…
But now it’s back.  Its mission is possible once again. And this time it’s brought to you by a new, more reliable, and thoroughly inspirational computer host (think Scottish fruit). 
FSFF never wants to go away again (until vacation time at least). But it may struggle for a wee while, while its owner learns the cool new language of her wonderful new i-World.
Anyhoo, here are some choice links to celebrate its stylish return:
