Provides a succint overview of the controversial so-called new queer director....Well-documented study....Helpful reading for any film course.... Recommended. (G.R. Butters Jr. CHOICE, June 2010)
Kylo-Patrick Hart's impassioned and insightful exploration of controversial auteur Gregg Araki is another laudatory achievement for this award-winning scholar. By combining his years of teaching auteur studies with an immense knowledge of Araki's work, Hart raises thought provoking questions about the director's career trajectory and places him within the context of the New Queer Cinema. The author's unique approach to his subject is what makes this treatise unique. His integrative study of Araki's film grammar, unique storytelling devices, problematic sexual politics, and fan reception are arranged within the chronological arch of the director's oeuvre. Images for a Generation Doomed will be a welcome addition both to film libraries and to college and graduate courses in media and cultural studies. It truly is an unforgettable book about an unforgettable director. (Catherine R. Burke, Independent Media Scholar)
