Trash Cinephile is an irreverent guide to 99 intriguing examples of exploitation cinema from a wide variety of sub-genres. These are films that are often branded as B-movies, Trash films, and also rather unfairly as 'bad movies'. Many are so bizarre that they defy any kind of generic definition; which is why you will find the films discussed within these pages gathered together in eight very loosely themed chapters.

Tracy Peacock Tynan, daughter of the world-famous theatre critic Kenneth Tynan and the author Elaine Dundy, grew up in London and New York during the 1950s and ’60s. Her parents threw lavish parties where style was essential and guests included the biggest Hollywood, theatre and literary legends – among them Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Orson Welles, Gore Vidal, Tennessee Williams and Maggie Smith. As Tynan describes it, her parents were “trying their best to be the Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald of the ’50s.” In Wear and Tear, Tynan reveals the glamour, secrets and dark side of her parents’ highly stylised world of endless jet-setting and savage fights, the struggles she faced as she tried to take charge of her life, and the happiness she eventually found as a costume designer, writer, wife and mother. She tells her astonishing story through the prism of the clothes which have come to symbolise her turbulent life: her father’s dandy attire, her mother’s mink coat and Pucci dress, and donning Ossie Clark apparel on Oxford Street as a young adult. Her love for fashion eventually inspired her to a career as a Hollywood designer, dressing Richard Gere, Bruce Willis, Julie Andrews, Zooey Deschanel and other stars. Frank, funny and deftly observed, Wear and Tear is an immensely engrossing, charming and eye-opening memoir of an extraordinary life.

They obsess over the nuances of a Douglas Sirk or Ingmar Bergman film; they revel in books such as François Truffaut's Hitchcock; they happily subscribe to the Sundance Channel—they are the rare breed known as cinephiles. Though much has been made of the classic era of cinephilia from the 1950s to the 1970s, Cinephilia documents the latest generation of cinephiles and their use of new technologies. With the advent of home theaters, digital recording devices, online film communities, cinephiles today pursue their dedication to film outside of institutional settings. A radical new history of film culture, Cinephilia breaks new ground for students and scholars alike.

Let's face it, reading sucks . . . but movies are fun! In this children's picture book parody for grown-ups, Pixar writer and artist Josh Cooley presents the most hilariously inappropriate—that is, the best—scenes from contemporary classic films in an illustrated, for-early-readers style. Terrifying, sexy, and awesome scenes from such favorite films as Alien, Rosemary's Baby, Fargo, Basic Instinct, Seven, The Silence of the Lambs, Apocalypse Now, The Shining, and many more are playfully illustrated and captioned to make reading fun and exciting for kids who never grew up. A sly celebration of the things fans love most about these legendary films (and movies in general), this is one book that probably should not be read at bedtime.

Bad Girls Go to Hell. Cannibal Holocaust. Eve and the Handyman. Examining film culture’s ongoing fascination with the low, bad, and sleazy faces of cinema, Sleaze Artists brings together film scholars with a shared interest in the questions posed by disreputable movies and suspect cinema. They explore the ineffable quality of “sleaze” in relation to a range of issues, including the production realities of low-budget exploitation pictures and the ever-shifting terrain of reception and taste. Writing about horror, exploitation, and sexploitation films, the contributors delve into topics ranging from the place of the “Aztec horror film” in debates about Mexican national identity to a cycle of 1960s films exploring homosexual desire in the military. One contributor charts the distribution saga of Mario Bava’s 1972 film Lisa and the Devil through the highs and lows of art cinema, fringe television, grindhouse circuits, and connoisseur DVD markets. Another offers a new perspective on the work of Doris Wishman, the New York housewife turned sexploitation director of the 1960s who has become a cult figure in bad-cinema circles over the past decade. Other contributors analyze the relation between image and sound in sexploitation films and Italian horror movies, the advertising strategies adopted by sexploitation producers during the early 1960s, the relationship between art and trash in Todd Haynes’s oeuvre, and the ways that the Friday the 13th series complicates the distinction between “trash” and “legitimate” cinema. The volume closes with an essay on why cinephiles love to hate the movies. Contributors. Harry M. Benshoff, Kay Dickinson, Chris Fujiwara, Colin Gunckel, Joan Hawkins, Kevin Heffernan, Matt Hills, Chuck Kleinhans, Tania Modleski, Eric Schaefer, Jeffrey Sconce, Greg Taylor

Since the 1960s, Hong Kong cinema has helped to shape one of the world's most popular cultural genres: action cinema. Hong Kong action films have proved popular over the decades with audiences worldwide, and they have seized the imaginations of filmmakers working in many different cultural traditions and styles. How do we account for this appeal, which changes as it crosses national borders? Hong Kong Connections brings leading film scholars together to explore the uptake of Hong Kong cinema in Japan, Korea, India, Australia, France and the US as well as its links with Taiwan, Singapore and the Chinese mainland. In the process, this collective study examines diverse cultural contexts for action cinema's popularity, and the problems involved in the transnational study of globally popular forms suggesting that in order to grasp the history of Hong Kong action cinema's influence we need to bring out the differences as well as the links that constitute popularity.
