"Written in the 1960's this book is a comprehensive study of avant-garde and experimental cinema dating back to the infancy of the cinema. Names like Stan Brakhage and Jordan Belson who have had a measurable impact on modern cinema as well as the more sensational auteurs like Andy Warhol, Kenneth Anger and Jack Smith are discussed and evaluated. In our age of video and video discs, much of the book seems dated but the chronicling of the evolution of modern technique and thematic material is thorough and fascinating. Many of the discoveries of these pioneers are standard procedures in today's cinema." - Stephen A. Mathews
