Cinema Eclectica 18 – There’s Only One Swinton

On this week’s episode there are some dark, disturbing revelations. In our Off the Shelf section we take a look at Sidney Lumet’s 1970’s  classic Network, a boxset featuring the work of Chris Marker, the rather alarming soap opera-like Be My Baby, and the silent

Cinema Eclectica 17 – Not Chick Flick Eclectica
