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.
