About this product
- DescriptionFor fervid or feverish film professionals and buffs, there is a term-- Kitchen Sink movies --referring to films that take severe-angle turns at unexpected moments, where a filmmaker will borrow from across the artistic spectrum to create a wild, disorienting ride. They are what this book is about. Throwing marketing reports and box-office projections to the wind, the writer-director-producers conjure a whirl of ideas, of images, of themes or plots, that inexplicably come together despite conventional reason. Almost always cult films, these movies rarely succeed in their first run. Indeed, some of the very best remain unkwn to mainstream audiences. This volume provides in-depth examinations of 66 of these cultural oddities, from such disparate films as La Morte en direct, The Final Programme, and Head to lesser kwn independents like The Prodigy, Land of College Prophets, and Scrapbook. Putting these unusual films into a cultural context promotes an under appreciated but fascinating facet of movie-making.
