Profoundly disturbing: shocking movies that changed history!
Profoundly Disturbing examines the underground cult movies that have -- unexpectedly and often unintentionally -- revolutionized the way that all movies would be made. These overlooked movies pioneered new cinematographic techniques, subversive narrative structuring, and guerrilla marketing strategies that would eventually trickle up to mainstream cinema. Most important, they expanded what could be shown on-screen and forced us to face a new darker side of reality in all its unjointed glory. Joe Bob Briggs, dubbed "the aficionado of trash" by the Wall Street Journal, uncovers fifteen of the twentieth century's most seminal cult movies, revealing the fascinating stories behind their making. And each chapter finishes with a "For Further Disturbance" section with recommendations for hundreds of related movies. Profoundly Disturbing finds order amidst the chaos of this bizarro cinema and provides a guide that's essential for all movie lovers, especially those who think they've seen everything. Book jacket.
