Welcome to The Wild Eye blog. A few words of introduction…
The Wild Eye is dedicated to the world of European Cinema of all types, new and old, popular or arthouse. The primary areas of interest for me, however, are Italian Cinema (from the 1950s to today) and contemporary British cinema, so expect those subjects to be make up the meat of the content.
As well as a blog, The Wild Eye also comes in book form. I am currently putting the final touches to an anthology – unsurprisingly called The Wild Eye – which I have edited with Julian Grainger, and we hope to release in the first half of next year. Subjects covered range from Elio Petri to Gianni Crea, from Alain Delon to Mel Welles, including articles, interviews, reviews and all the other fabulous stuff you’d expect. I will post regarding it’s progress regularly in the future. It is planned to be the first in a series of books, so keep your eyes open.
In the meantime, you may want to check out The European Film Review, where I keep a lot of my archive reviews, or The European Film Review Forum, where you can discuss everything to do with European Cinema. Please do interact with this blog, it really makes it all a lot more fun.
