The film industry is an exciting place for both its resident creatives and the outside world. And I believe it blossoms more and more when we push the boundaries and seize opportunities. This is why November’s issue of The Spread is dedicated to the people and movies that represent milestones to us.

No one can deny the talent and legacy that Ray Harryhausen left behind. Alice gives us an insight into his illustrious career. Whilst Ray undoubtedly paved the way for Sci-Fi and Fantasy, Cameron Johnson poses the question; what is more important for the genre, substance or spectacle?

A prestigious milestone in any actor’s career is of course an Academy Award. Why then has this eluded the thespian hands of Leonardo Dicaprio? Juggy Sohal looks more into this. 

Meanwhile, you may not regard the Wayan’s Bros as milestoners…but here’s why Whitechicks hits the mark. And on the topic of seminal films, Samantha Ward tells us why Brazil is her top choice.

Of course we have our usual round up of reviews: Guest writer Yi Ling Huang graced the BFI’s London Film Festival and attended the premiere of The Disappearance of  Eleanor RigsbyRichard Ayoade returns to the directing chair with The Double and we have a look to another dystopian story in Children of Men. 

Welcome to our Milestone Issue!
