[nice clean copy, faint handling wear only]. (B&W photographs) The primary feature of this issue is a center section devoted to the work of writer/director Preston Sturges. Also: a discussion/analysis of STRAW DOGS (Sam Peckinpah); a joint discussion of Arrabal's VIVA LA MUERTE ("a wretched failure of a film") and Alejandro Jodorowsky's EL TOPO ("the fevered work of a genuinely audacious imagination"); a couple of articles devoted to Akira Kurosawa's DODES'KA-DEN, including an interview with the director and a black-and-white reproduction of a poster for the film, drawn by him; a "Guide to Christian Metz" (then the Next Big Star of film analysis, God help us); a discussion of LE BOUCHER (Claude Chabrol); reviews of THE HELLSTROM CHRONICLE (Walon Green) and TRASH (Paul Morrisey); and a discussion (with bibliography) of the critical writings of Raymond Durgnat.
