Along with the usual roundup of classic film posters, features include a photo essay on Polish synagogues that became cinemas after WW2, a location focus on Washington D.C., 1000 words on one man’s heroic stand against the Hollywood Blacklist and a look at both Bruce Lee’s iconic yellow jumpsuit and Anton Chigurh’s lethal Bolt Pistol from No Country for Old men.

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.
