Product description

Review

"West's persuasive text makes you want to go back and revisit this body of work from her perspective"--Video Watchdog; "quite a profound and thorough analysis of the extreme French art house and horror films of this movement"--Fangoria; "West's book is so tres fantastique that I wish it were a reference guide that covered hundreds of films"--Flick Attack; "fans and scholars of the New French Extremity genre will welcome Alexandra West's Films of the New French Extremity...a timely and well-researched examination of the darker side of French cinema. West's analysis is, thankfully, readable and relatable, avoiding the often suffocatingly dull academic prose found in genre studies. Films of the New French Extremity will most likely serve as the analytic lightning rod for fans and scholars of the NFE for some time to come...the first comprehensive overview and timeline of one of the most challenging genres to emerge in recent years"--Bright Lights Film Journal; "a comprehensive examination"--ProtoView. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
