Incoming: The Big Picture Issue 11 now available to download!


Ahead of the print edition being available to pick up at select independent cinemas from November 20th, you can now download the new issue to enjoy in its full small screen glory. Ok so it doesn’t smell as nice as the print version, but it’s still rather tasty.

Themed around the re-release of Boudu Saved From Drowning – Jean Renoir’s hilarious and raucous exposé of the hypocrisy of the bourgeoisie – the issue explores prejudice, class divide and life on the skids.

Along with the usual roundup of classic film posters, features include a look at the Coke bottle from The Gods Must Be Crazy as iconic symbol, Scotland’s Screen Machine mobile cinema, a location focus on Beverly Hills, 1000 words on Melvin Peebles, Black Power and the Birth of Blaxploitation and a profile on film poster artists AllCity Media.

By Gabriel Solomons

Gabriel's earliest cinematic memory was believing a man could fly in Richard Donner's original (and best) Superman. Following numerous failed attempts at pursuing a career as a caped crusader (mild vertigo didn't help), he subsequently settled down into the far safer – but infinitely less exciting – world of editorial design. A brief stint at the Independent newspaper in London sharpened his skills but cemented his desire to escape the big smoke forever, choosing to settle in the west country. He set up the arts and culture magazine 'Decode' in 2003 and currently edits and art directs the Big Picture magazine. When asked by mates what his favourite film is he replies The Big Lebowski while when in the presence of film afficianados he goes all poncy and says Fellini's 8 1/2.
