I discovered a publication called The Believer recently, which features some of the most interesting and informative writing about filmmaking I’ve ever seen. The 2010 film issue, which was published in April and can be backordered on their site, has thoughtful, well-written interviews with Harmony Korine, Ilisa Barbash and Lucien Castaing-Taylor (makers of the beautiful shot Montana doc “Sweetgrass”), and Gary Hustwit.
The Believer has a welcome bias toward documentary film in their content, and an edgy editorial approach that allows them to publish hand-drawn comics alongside top-10 culture lists. And to top this issue off, there’s even a DVD of short films from the Yugoslavian Black Wave. Hours of fun.
