Jordan Peele, The rise of country music, Christian Marclay's show reviewed
Jordan Peele on his new horror film, Us, about a family terrorised by their doppelgangers. Plus, the rise in popularity of country music in the UK.
Jordan Peele talks about Us - his new film about a family terrorised by their doppelgängers. Having upturned the horror genre with his Oscar-winning racial satire Get Out, Jordan takes aim at the American dream in this follow up, starring Lupita Nyong’o.
The artist Christian Marclay is best known for The Clock - a 24-hour long film composed of nearly 12 000 clips, taken from films depicting time references across a full day. Critic Sarah Crompton assesses his latest two 'collage' video works on show in a new exhibition about to open at the White Cube Gallery in London.
The UK contemporary country music scene has grown rapidly over recent years, and this week Bauer Media announced that they will be launching a new radio station, Country Hits Radio. Next month also sees the release of new film Wild Rose where a Glaswegian singer dreams of becoming a Nashville star. The film writer, Nicole Taylor, and Gary Stein of Bauer Media discuss the rise in popularity of the genre here in the UK.
