PRESENTED IN GLORIOUS KINERAMA! + EXHIBITION: 100 GREATEST BRITISH FILMS Why a special animated issue? “I discovered barrier grid animation six years ago while wandering around a book shop. I fell in love with the simplicity and magic of it. I love animation and gifs – this technique celebrates the recreation of movement and connects you back to a simple form of animation that doesn’t require a computer device and is surprising and very playful… even for adults.” Lauréne Boglio, Art Director LWLies YOUR DECODER On this page you will find your special LWLies image decoder. While browsing this magazine, whenever you spot the ‘KineRama’ emblem (as above), line-up the decoder horizontally on the page and watch as the illustrations come to life. #LWLies80 #KineRama If your decoder is missing please email hello@tcolondon.com…

“YOU’RE LOST. AND YOU’LL ALWAYS BE LOST.” Directed by JOANNA HOGG Starring HONOR SWINTON BYRNE, TOM BURKE, TILDA SWINTON Released 30 AUGUST Since her 2007 debut feature Unrelated, Joanna Hogg has built a reputation for her well-met explorations of feckless upper echelon ennui – comedian Stewart Lee, in one of his stand-up shows, described her 2010 family drama Archipelago as “an art film about middle-class people on a disappointing holiday”. On the surface these films seem ominously specific, relating to the unique problems of the quietly comfortable, but Hogg’s gift as a filmmaker and storyteller is how these intimate scenarios – wry inspections of how the other half live – deal as much in the abstract as they do in objective reality. From a viewer’s perspective, The Souvenir feels like her most ambitious project to…

the art of vulnerability

To say that The Souvenir is a personal project for British filmmaker Joanna Hogg requires a finessed understanding of what this clichéd description means. A hoarder of letters, diaries, photographs and miscellaneous creative mementos, Hogg has both returned to a specific period in her life – London in the 1980s when she was a film student and in a tumultuous relationship with a troubled man – and also recreated it. Production designer Stéphane Collonge projected old photographs taken by Hogg as exteriors to the windows of the central apartment, itself an inch-by-inch reconstruction of her old Knightsbridge flat, albeit based, like most of the set, within a former RAF hangar in Norfolk. Casting herself, as it were, was a long process. While she quickly settled on Tom Burke to play the…

“Joanna never really explained why she chose me for the role, but apparently she had me in mind for a while. She told me that she had seen me in War and Peace – that was the thing that made her think I would be a good fit for Anthony. We started meeting maybe a year before the film actually kicked off, and at that point we were already talking about the character in a lot of detail. She was gradually showing me various photos and correspondence with the man who we were basing Anthony on. We would talk about him and she would pass me the odd letter or note, which was a big help in terms of understanding her relationship to the character. “All that prep work is really…

exhibition 100 mould-breaking british films

There hasn’t been a whole lot to celebrate in the UK of late, unless you happen to harbour a profound fondness for tinpot totalitarian spud-fuckers and welocme the prospect of a future tinted in depressingly dim hues of red, white and blue. Joanna Hogg’s extraordinary fourth feature, The Souvenir – our inspiration for this issue – has moved us to try and quell the apathy and depression and, instead, gather up 30 of our brilliant, passionate contributors to celebrate a century-plus of mould-breaking cinematic innovation. Our self-determined remit was to limit our selections to one film per director, and in many cases we’ve opted for their debut. The films are sequenced in chronological order rather than subject to an arbitrary ranking system, because this way they tell a story when consumed…

Do you suffer from this terrible affiction? What are the signs? Can movies help us to heal? Subject One: The Gunslinger Name: Annie Laurie Star Played by: Peggy Cummins Film: Gun Crazy (1950) The phallic potential of the trusty six-shooter is clearly visible in Joseph H Lewis’s delirious crime spree picture in which a loved-up pair of trigger-happy reprobates take on the world with just the ammo on their pocket. Peggy Cummins’ Annie is crack shot with a pistol, and falls hard for John Dall’s Bart when she sees the slick manner in which he handles a gat. Unlucky for him, it transpires she is one bad egg, _ xated with transgression to the point of annihilation. In terms of obsession, this one _ ags up an unholy trifecta of guns, violence and criminal endeavour which sends…
