I'll be heading to Melbourne on November 23rd to cover the opening of the Australian Centre for the Movie Image's Stanley Kubrick inside the mind of a visionary filmmaker exhibition. It promises to be an unmissable event featuring over 1000 props, posters and models spanning his entire career. I'll be interviewing Kubrick's wife Christiane along with Jan Harlan; producer of Eyes Wide Shut, The Shining and Full Metal Jacket, and the star of A Clockwork Orange Malcom McDowell. My coverage of the event will appear in a forthcoming issue of Cinema Retro. I'll also be doing a retrospective piece to mark the 35th Anniversay of A Clockwork Orange for Film Review next year. I'll be making a report on this site soon so keep posted.
In further news my interview with Tura Satana, the star of Russ Meyer's Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill! will be appearing in next months Filmink along with my delayed interview wth Bob Clark, the man who directed Black Christmas and Porky's. Joining my semi-regular DVD Down Under column in DVD World I will also be doing a regular Vox Pops piece from various Sydney cinemas for Film Review magazine. In more magazine news I'll soon be contributing to a new magazine Smoke and Mirrors. An Australian publication, the magazine will cover movie special effects and make-up and is aimed at both industry and movie goers alike. I'm very excited to be part of Smoke and Mirrors at such an early stage and look forward to telling you more, the first issue will be published in February 2006.
