The White Review hosts a screening of Powell & Pressburger’s Gone To Earth at the Institute of Contemporary Arts on Thursday 25 October The film will be introduced by writer and critic Brian Dillon Please visit the ICA website to book a seat for the screening  Gone to Earth is based on Mary Webb’s melodramatic novel of 1917: the tale of a wild-natured young woman (played by Jennifer Jones) torn between the love of a meek Baptist minister (Cyril Cusack) and the local squire (David Farrar) Several of Powell and Pressburger’s better known films — especially A Canterbury Tale and I Know Where I’m Going — are in thrall to a mystical view of British landscape In Gone to Earth, that magic and Romanticism are weirdly lurid and over-stated; the film imputes an absurd degree of eroticism and energy to the Shropshire countryside where it was shot It’s an oddity, even an embarrassment, among Powell and Pressburger’s films – compromised by co-producer David O Selznick’s obsessive relationship with Jones But at a time when so many British artists and writers — from Tacita Dean to Robert Macfarlane — are revisiting Romantic conceptions of landscape, it’s also a fascinating instance of a postwar picturesque Dir Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, UK 1950, 110 mins, Cert PG Brian Dillon is a writer and critic, and UK editor of Cabinet magazineHe contributes regularly to art magazines, newspapers and journals in the UK, USA and Ireland, as well as writing books that range in subject matter from contemporary art to the history of hypochondria, the physical space of writing to the aesthetics of decay

On a rare visit to London, novelist and critic Joshua Cohen will be reading from a novella, ‘Sent’, at contemporary art gallery Carroll/Fletcher during Frieze week  ‘Sent’ begins mythically in the woods of Russia, but in a few virtuosic pages plunges into the present, where an aspiring journalist finds himself in a village that shelters all the women who’ve starred in all the internet porn he’s ever enjoyed  Following the reading, Cohen will be interviewed by Christian Lorentzen, Senior Editor at the London Review of Books There will be alcohol (& soft drinks, too) Space is limited to 60 people for this event so please RSVP BY EMAIL ONLY to editors [at] thewhiterevieworg The event will begin at 7pm Joshua Cohen is the author of the novels Witz, A Heaven of Others, and Cadenza for the Schneidermann Violin Concerto A book of novellas, Four New Messages, was published by Graywolf Press in August 2012, and an essay on the history of attention is forthcoming with Notting Hill Editions in 2013 Cohen is the New Books critic for Harper’s Magazine He lives in New York City ‘Joshua Cohen has more than four new messages to deliver in this volatile book, all quite urgent These stories seize us with their brash humor and intellectual reach But are they startling warning flares or diabolical soul traps? Probably both Read them and weep, roar, shudder’—Sam Lipsyte, praise for Four New Messages ‘This anarchic energy recalls Thomas Pynchon and David Foster Wallace, but what really distinguishes Witz is its language and Cohen’s vigorous assault on the sentence as a unit of simple communication A linguistic extravaganza’—The New York Times Book Review, praise for Witz
