About this title


Film is Fun. Film is Art. This scrapbook tells you how. Under the triple symbolic sign of Vertov/Vigo/Varda, you will thrill to the beauties and excitements of the seventh art. Find out about the stars, from Greta Garbo in 1926 to Sasha Grey in 2009. Check out the great directors, from Charlie Chaplin to Catherine Breillat. Here is a veritable smorgasbord of goodies to whet your appetite. Here are questions you never dared ask. How does cinema relate art and porn? Who is Joe Sarno? Why and how was Oshima’s Ai No Corrida (1976) censored and cut by the BBFC? Why is Bunuel’s L’Age d’or (1930) the greatest film ever made? What is your Top Ten?

About the Author:

At the end of a career teaching English Literature at Hull University, John Hoyles launched out with two courses on world cinema for his students. They were CINE-TOT (‘Cinema and Totalitarianism’), followed by CINE-FEM (‘Cinema and Feminism’). In this fashion, in the 1990s, a passion first aroused by the Cambridge University Film Society in that little passage-way Art Cinema (1957-1960), came to fruition. Film took over from literature as the abiding interest. In retirement the loss of students was in part made up for by blogging these scraps for the new foundation we quaintly call The Hull Film Society.
