November Reading and Viewing

Loads of interesting reads this month so am just posting highlights:

Kim Morgan of Sunset Gun writes a beautiful piece on Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

Jack Patrick Rogers at The House Next Door looks at Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars and Glee and how they present web culture.

Jess McCabe interviews Jan Chapman and reviews Bright Star for The F-Word.

In terms of cinema it has been an ace month with An Education and Bright Star both thrilling. I also attended the Women and Silent Britain study day at the BFI which enthused me about silent films and reintroducing these "dehistoricized" women into film history. There have been lots of other films released recently by female directors (Amelia, Nativity, Nowhere Boy) but it is difficult to see everything. I'll be posting a review of Cracks shortly.
