Beneficial Shock! 8: Awe and Wonder

Beneficial Shock! is a fully illustrated annual magazine about the movies. Each issue takes a different theme and explores movie characters, genres and tropes in a series of essays and illustrations that are both visually exciting and absolutely fascinating.

Issue 8 is the Awe and Wonder issue - but they sidestep the Marvel universe and instead focus on those films that stay with you long after you leave the cinema.

In issue 8, they 'marvel' at the films of Sofia Coppola, Terence Malik and David Cronenberg, look at how larger than life personalities like Muhammed Ali and Aretha Franklin have been captured on screen and the power of well recorded live music.
