As László Nemes’s award-winning Son of Saul forges a new way of dramatising an Auschwitz-like death camp, Leigh Singer revisits the ethical arguments around the art of the abyss.

There's no backstory, hand-holding or sentimental hosannas in Jonathan Glazer's drama of alien life in Glasgow. It traps and it troubles. Scarlett Johansson stars in Under The Skin.

There's a lot of alien life in Glasgow ;-}

This is a great film. An uncomfortable watch, to be sure, but deeply, unsettlingly, thought-provoking. And one that will leave you feeling like you need a wash.

In memory of the writer Jenny Diski, who passed away on 28 April: her essay for our August 1992 issue on idealism, realism and It’s a Wonderful Life.
The nice folks of Bedford Falls are singing 'Auld Lang Syne', the credits are rolling, and, once again, the tears are streaming down my cheeks.

"But for Man, no rest and no ending. He must go on, conquest beyond conquest.

First this little planet with its winds and ways, and then all the laws of mind and matter that restrain him. Then the planets about him and at last out across immensity to the stars.

And when he has conquered all the deeps of space and all the mysteries of time, still he will be beginning." – Things to Come.
