Cinematic -- Issue #5 / Winter 2007.

The first winter issue of Cinematic delves into a busy movie season, taking a look at Oscar heavyweights Babel and The Departed, tasteless comedy and/or social phenomenon Borat, and artful puzzlers The Science of Sleep and The Fountain, among others. It also explores James Bond in a post-9/11 context, the difficulty of the second parts of trilogies, and, of course, penguins. Additionally, there are interviews with acclaimed directors Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel, 21 Grams), Steven Shainberg (Fur, Secretary), and Richard Linklater (Fast Food Nation, Slacker), as well as a retrospective on fifty years of Janus Films.

Online articles, including those exclusive to the website, should be availabe shortly.
