In the second Electric Sheep Podcast of 2011, Alex Fitch talks to director Ivo van Hove about his innovative theatrical production The Antonioni Project, being staged at The Barbican, City of London, a play that combines elements of cinema and theatre as it blends three screenplays by Michelangelo Antonioni with the latest technological achievements.

The Barbican are also showing all three of the films which inspired The Antonioni Project:
L’Avventura (The Adventure) – 5 Feb 2011 / 15:45 La Notte (The Night) – 13 Feb 2011 / 13:30
L’eclisse (The Eclipse) – 20 Feb 2011 / 16:00

The latest issue of Electric Sheep Magazine is now online, and is concerned with confessions – Tricky revelations, poetic admissions and Catholic guilt – inspired by the brilliant, devilishly twisted revenge tale Confessions – read our interview with director Tetsuya Nakashima, who also made Kamikaze Girls and Memories of Matsuko, and watch the trailer. Also on cinema screens this month, Howl explores Allen Ginsberg’s revolutionary confessional poem and the obscenity trial against its publisher. We also have articles on nunsploitation, and on faith and guilt in William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist, The Ninth Configuration and Exorcist III, as well as a Reel Sounds column on I Walked with a Zombie.

Other cinema releases include elegant nightmare Never Let Me Go, adapted from Kazuo Ishiguro by Alex Garland, intense Australian crime drama Animal Kingdom and Mohamed Al-Daradji’s Son of Babylon. In the DVDs, we review eerie French psycho-thriller In Their Sleep, Miloš Forman’s 60s Czech New Wave classic A Blonde in Love and Fritz Lang’s 1941 espionage thriller Man Hunt, and we have a Comic Strip Review by Hannah Berry of The Last Lovecraft.
