Electric Ghost Magazine is an independent online film publication dedicated to heterodox navigations of transformative cinema. 

 

Run by cinephiles educated in film interpretation, we heed the medium's message, separate its wisdom from its blindness, and show how film can act as a guide to life.

“Film was always a shared thing within my family; I still credit my parents for much of what I look for in a film today. As a critic, I want to be able to recreate that feeling for others, that sensation that you are now being let in on something entirely special, a wholly unique emotional vessel.”

The word cinema derives from the Ancient Greek term 'kinema', meaning 'movement', and as an art form it is pretty unique in its ability to both move and 'move'. From the earliest travel films of the late 19th Century cinema has taken us outside of ourselves and into other worlds, and as a critic, my role is as guide or Sherpa helping you navigate these foreign climes."

~ Benjamin

Based in London, Benjamin had earlier completed an MSc course in Film, Exhibition and Curation at the University of Edinburgh. He has an unabated passion for the "Seventh Art" and an eclectic taste in films, from silent-era classics through to contemporary Turkish cinema and the contemplative works of Nuri Bilge Ceylan. 

 

A long-standing devotee of documentary film, Benjamin's undergraduate thesis was an ambitious odyssey spanning the entire history of this uniquely 'creative treatment of actuality'; from Grierson to Gibney, issues encompassing documentary 'truth', representation and ethics were explored and interrogated. 

As a recipient of the prize for best young film critic at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Benjamin has written film and arts reviews for WOW247, Movie Scramble, The Wee Review and Kubrick on the Guillotine among other publications. He also writes travel and lifestyle articles for online magazines including TravelMag London

 

Benjamin has a website dedicated to art and cultural musings/ramblings called The Parallax Viewer.
