This is a very timely and welcome book.... intervenes very effectively to rewrite the history of the 1960s American underground cinema." -UTS Review



At the confluence of experimental art and the gay subculture of early 1960s New York, Juan Suarez discovers a postmodern, gay-influenced aesthetic that "recycles" popular culture. Filmmakers Kenneth Anger, Jack Smith, and Andy Warhol epitomize this sensibility, combining the influences of European avant-garde movements, comic books, rock 'n' roll, camp, film cults, drag performances, fashion, and urban street cultures.
