 Book

 

 

 

This interview collection takes us back into the roaring 1980s, when the home video market changed the whole world of film making. For a short time, everything seemed possible, and in a way everything was possible. Shapiro Glickenhaus Entertainment was in the right place at the right time. Although SGE closed its doors in 1995, films like THE EXTERMINATOR, BLACK ROSES, SHAKEDOWN, MOONTRAP, RED SCORPION, NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER II, BASKET CASE II & III, FRANKENHOOKER, MANIAC COP and several others remain cult favorites today. Enlightening interviews with business legends and producers are combined with extended conversations with well-known genre filmmakers. On top of this are the voices of all the key people that marketed and sold the SGE movies to the world, managed the productions, or ran the office during this fast forward period of maverick film making. Neither Jim Glickenhaus nor Leonard Shapiro have ever opened up this much about their fantastic careers in the film industry.

Isaac Florentine still remains one of the very few auteur filmmakers in the world of martial arts movies. His highly energetic cinematic style first was only praised by fans of the genre, but since his breakout film UNDISPUTED 2 Florentine is both recognized by critics and a wider mainstream audience. For this interview collection Florentine shared personal background stories and detailed information about all the projects he produced and/or directed throughout almost thirty years of independent filmmaking. Starting with his origins in Israel, his feature debut DESERT HAWK Florentine talks about how he cut his teeth as an (action-)director while working on the cult-favorite television series POWER RANGERS, and his way to becoming one of the regular directors for Avi Lerners production company Nu Image. Besides the conversations with the director himself, this publication includes the voices of many actors and key creatives who worked with Isaac Florentine during his career.

".. Allmachtsphantasien, Maschinengewehre, Verstörungswut .."


 

A few years back, two of the mavericks in young German film criticism partnered for an outstanding blog project about an often overlooked topic in serious writing about film. In a deeply focused, unique and even revisionary way, Nöding and Ewert give the action film a proper analysis. Presented in a very entertaining dialogue-style and hard-boiled language, this collection is hardly scholarly. This is unmistakably the work of two shameless fans of the genre. They are not afraid to meet their childhood heroes and to take a well-deserved closer look at the films starring iconic action heroes  who became quintessential for the US film market for almost two decades. We are invited to re-discover genre milestones such as MISSING IN ACTION, ROBOCOP, THE EXTERMINATOR, but also under-rated movies like SILENT RAGE, YOUNG WARRIORS, and cynical jawbreakers like ACTION JACKSON, DEATH WISH 3, DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR, and numerous more films of an era made of iconic images. Including exclusive forewords of both writers.

Be afraid, darling. Be very afraid. For the very first time: The collected thoughts about (gay) porn from the one and only advocate for fagdom! The notorious cult director and “reluctant pornographer” Bruce LaBruce is a well-known key figure of the new queer cinema. Starting in the late 80s with Super 8  short  features  and  later entering the international independent film scene, LaBruce was already working for cult favorite magazines such as "Honcho", "Inches", "Exclaim!", "Vice" and many more. This compilation is covering the thought-provoking, political, opinionated and cleverly sharped articles, the director released about pornography. A glorious read - if you aren‘t afraid of obscenity. Including a conversation between Bruce and gay porn legend Peter Berlin, numerous essays, articles, stories and three shooting diaries: SKIN GANG, THE RASPBERRY REICH and L.A. ZOMBIE. Plus numerous examples of still photography's, artworks  and portrait shots.

The esthetic regionalism between east and west coast may be a moot point to today’s international viewers of twenty-first-century gay porn which is more “corporate meat loops” than it is the “personal” kind of visionary film narrative made by the pioneer directors. They created gay cinema. They built their box-office fame with their stories and style, and with their superb casting back in the day when the porn stars they discovered were hot guys with real personalities they knew would make audiences hard no matter what coast or country or continent. No matter the coast or country, Hot is hot. Some things are essential. Everywhere. Career-spanning conversations with adult film pioneers David “Old Reliable” Hurles, Roger Earl, Jim West, a historical interview with underground legend J. Brian and a conversation with acclaimed poet and (song-)writer Gavin Dillard, talking about his brief career interval as a porn star. Including numerous pages of artworks, film stills and other Ephemera pieces.

He literally has seen it all. Wakefield Poole experienced a glowing era of American film history and the „golden age“ of several glorious things such as Broadway, Porno Chic, Rock Music, Gay Liberation, and the Sexual Revolution itself. After being almost forgotten, the films by adult movie pioneer Wakefield Poole are being re-discovered by a younger generation of cinematics. In a career-spanning interview, Mr. Poole shares never-heard stories and talks about every single film he made. He discusses several other stations of his life; for example: cooking in the Trump Tower and for Jackie Kennedy. Not only his well-known celluloid-masterpieces like ‚Boys in the Sand‘ and ‚Bijou‘ are discussed, but also the often overlooked movies shot on video by the former dancer and choreographer. Includes a foreword by documentary filmmaker Jim Tushinski, a historical interview of Jack Fritscher from the legendary ‚Drummer‘ Magazine in the late Seventies, and many stills and art pieces from his filmmaking.

This interview collection delves deep into the origins of queer filmmaking and right into the so called "Golden Age of Porn" - although Jack Deveau and his production company Hand In Hand once were cheered and well-known among the New Yorker gay community their heritage was almost forgotten - lost, just like tears in the rain. His longtime partner and editor Bob Alvarez tells the whole story of the company and his personal relationship to pioneer director Jack Deveau. Hand In Hand was not only known for presenting the finest adult movies for a gay audience, they also started a hybrid of narrative, experimental and porn filmmaking,using not only the best models on camera, but also numerous key creatives coming from a regular film background, Broadway, or the New Yorker Art scene. Next to the most personal interviews Bob Alvarez ever shared about Jack Deveau, this book also includes the voices of thirteen additional friends and collaborators who helped to create the Hand In Hand movies.
