Product Description

Review

"This is an enthralling book about a topic at once life-affectingly important and extraordinarily complex: how gay people--or anyone else--are seen and see themselves and how the movies help shape that. The excitement of the book is that it so deftly combines the white heat of political engagement with the rigor and nuance of scholarship. Tom Waugh shows us in exemplary fashion that you can combine personal passion and political engagement with the highest standards of intellectual discipline, while taking us on a delicious trip through the vagaries of queer film images."--Richard Dyer, University of Warwick "Tom Waugh was thinking queerly about the movies for decades before the New Queer Cinema was a market niche, but without his careful thinking and charming interventions, it's hard to imagine the present cultural moment. Back when being gay was anything but fashionable, Waugh taught and fought, proselytized and organized, so that queer films and queer audiences would be taken seriously." - B. Ruby Rich"For more than twenty years Thomas Waugh has been writing about gay movies and gays in cinema in Canada. Waugh's career has covered the underground gay cinema of the late 70s, gay cinema during the early Aids epidemic in the 80s and the Queer New Wave of the 90s. Witty, ironic and always passionate, Waugh--whose work has been collected in a book, The Fruit Machine--was an early champion and practioner of queer cultural and cinematic criticism, an inspiration to countless would-be gay film journalists and an invaluable study source for queer film buffs."--Gay Times, August 2000
