Innovative documentary filmmaker; friend of Andy Warhol, John Cage, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and other leading figures of the New York art world; radical leftist critic of the Establishment; and legendary bon vivant: Emile de Antonio (1919-1989) was a larger-than-life personality and a key figure in the development of post-war American cinema. The films de Antonio made between 1963 and 1989 -- including Point of Order, Rush to Judgment, In the Year of the Pig, Painters Painting, and Millhouse: A White Comedy -- revolutionized the documentary format and inspired a generation of artists and filmmakers. A decade after his death, his cinematic legacy -- ranging from the brilliantly edited compilation of the 1954 Army-McCarthy hearings that helped construct Senator Joseph McCarthy's reputation as a rogue demagogue (Point of Order) to a meditative juxtaposition of documents about F.B.I. director J. Edgar Hoover and intimate footage drawn from the filmmaker's own life (Mr. Hoover and I) -- remains unparalleled in American documentary film.

Emile de Antonio: A Reader is the first full-length volume devoted to this major American filmmaker. It collects interviews with and writings by de Antonio; reviews and other critical material that detail the genesis, production history, and reception of his films; a comprehensive filmography; and an in-depth biographical essay. Offering a long overdue assessment of de Antonio's career, this indispensable book also makes a significant contribution to our understanding of American independent cinema at its most politically engaged.

From Library Journal:

De Antonio (1919-1989) self-defined his work as "a history of the US in the Cold War." His first film, Point of Honor (1963), examined the 1954 Army-Mc-Carthy hearings, and later films covered the Vietnam conflict (In the Year of the Pig), Richard Nixon (Millhouse: A White Comedy), and the JFK assassination (Rush to Judgement). Kellner (Media Culture) and Streible (film studies, Univ. of South Carolina) have skillfully assembled one of the first monographs about the life and career of this political documentary filmmaker, and they have added and engaging 75-page biographical essay. They include interviews with and articles about the director, reviews and critical essays about the films, reminiscences by colleagues and friends, illustrations, an extensive bibliography, and a complete filmography. Unlike a majority of film books, this one will stimulate readers to view the subject's films. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
