Charting the history of independent cinema from early pioneers Orson Welles, Stanley Kubrick, John Cassavetes, and Francis Ford Coppola, through to modern practitioners such as David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino and Charlie Kaufman, this book provides a much-needed critical analysis of the state of the art of today s film industry.

About this title

Synopsis:

Using Lars von Trier’s 2003 film Dogville as a launchpad for his ideas, Jake Horsley aims to discuss the conflict between “artistic” and “commercial” movie-making that he believes exists in the film industry today. He proposes that the term “independent,” when applied to filmmaking, be considered an artistic term relating to sensibility and vision and not simply a question of backing or funds.

Can an “independent” film also be a commercial success in Hollywood? Charting the history of independent cinema from early pioneers Jean-Luc Godard and Sam Peckinpah to modern masters such as David Lynch, this book provides a critical analysis of the state of today’s film industry.

About the Author:

Horsley was born and raised in the UK in the late 1960s. He began writing film criticism while still a teenager, travelled the world during his 20s and has since published three books and made a series of short digital movies (THE GOD GAME) as well as one feature (BEAUTY FOOL). He is currently based in Mexico.
