From commercial genre cinema to the experimental avant-garde, from Altman to Zanussi, from Art Theatre Guild to Zoetrope, from Arab cinema to Zambian cinema, and from the Lumière Brothers to the Coen Brothers, Cinescope offers a widescreen panorama of cinema as an international artform, across all genres, eras and regions, basically a panorama of cinema in all its diversity as I (Jean-Baptiste de Vaulx) continue to explore it, discover it, and write about it. Some reviews are essentially capsule reviews. Some form longer lists, based on my favourite films of a certain year, or around a certain theme. Some are longer, more analytical essays.
