Editorial by Bradley Tuck
One+One seeks to overcome stagnation, it seeks to provoke discussion and critical reassessments and propel cinema into the future. It is not a magazine compiled of five star reviews, neither is it a journal of socially detached cold academic prose. One+One seeks to bring the filmmaker and the theorist together, moving forward the task of Cinema and aiding the becoming of the medium. One+One encourages mutual exchange where the filmmakers and theorists can converge to discuss the becoming of the medium that they both, in their own way, partake in shaping. One+One does not intend to separate itself from the world. It encourages political, social and cultural analysis of film and filmmaking. It aims to leave no stone unturned; craft, process, funding, style and content must be subjected to rigorous scrutiny. It similarly seeks to reappraise history, bringing underrated or under-acknowledged filmmakers to the fore, whilst simultaneously celebrating acknowledged filmmakers who have radically and experimentally broken boundaries in some way. By doing so One+One seeks to unearth a filmmaking for the future. One+One is a never-ending manifesto, an open-ended equation; it seeks to motivate, innovate, challenge and transform. It is, like history itself, a ‘work in progress’.
In this issue, sexual and gender politics loom large. In his hunt for a new sexual politic for cinema, Bradley Tuck searches American Cinema of the Seventies. John Bradburn, likewise, turns to American Occult Cinema, demonstrating how it brought hidden sexualities and lifestyles into view. Diarmuid Hester draws philosophical insights from the sexually graphic film Irreversible, Chris Brown finds homosexual undertones in Miklós Jancsó’s My Way Home and James Marcus Tucker explores the problematic representation of femininity in Tarkovsky. If nothing else we hope this issue provokes discussion, debate, revives interests and stimulates new ones.
