Issue No. 15

In a movie issue like no other, Black Clock 15 features Geoff Nicholson’s meeting of two film pioneers in “Buster Keaton: The Warhol Years,” David Thomson’s journey up the Amazon with Warren Beatty, and Anthony Miller’s history of the cinema — from D.W. Griffith’s adaptation of Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises (presenting Louise Brooks as Lady Brett) to Don Siegel’s ‘60s cult B-movie Bonnie and Clyde with Tuesday Weld and Clint Eastwood, to the 2010 Academy Award-winning portrayal by Chris Farley of silent comedic actor Fatty Arbuckle in Milos Forman’s The Life of the Party.

“Each issue arrives in the reader's hands as an artifact throbbing with potential and strangeness, new names and old names in wild conjunctions and brave forays, a journal to drive the collectors of the future into acquisitive frenzies.”
