Filmish Reviewed in 'The List'

Scottish events magazine 'The List' has reviewed issue 2 of 'Filmish' in their mid-June issue, giving it 4/5.  The review is not currently available online, so here is what they have to say:
"Just in time for the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Edinburgh-based comic writer Edward Ross returns with the second installment of his comic treatise on film theory.  The second issue is more ambitious, with Ross devoting the entire title to 'Sets and Architecture', using movies like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Metropolis and Blade Runner to illustrate his points.  But it is perhaps the inclusion and dissection of films such as Die Hard, James Bond and the Bourne series and the relation of their protagonists to their surroundings that is the most illuminating.
 Educational and entertaining, his clean, simplistic art helps to draw you through various aspects of what could be confusing and complex ideas if they weren't so nicely translated into comic form.  This comic is available from Edinburgh's Filmhouse and via edwardmaross.blogspot.com and we can only hope there's more to come."
