Tell your children: One hundred and twenty three essays on cult cinema. 3rd edition

Alexander Pavlov

Number of pages: 584

The term cult is frequently used in everyday language, mostly when referring to cinema, but not always accordingly to its true meaning. However, defining the “correct” meaning of “cult cinema” is quite a challenging task and it is very hard to provide a univocal answer to what cult cinema really is. In this book the author attempts to understand what cult cinema is: when and how it originated, how it has been developing, what it was, what it has become and whether it has survived at all. And if it has survived, how should we speak about it today?
The book comprises two unequal parts. In the first part — a theoretical and methodological introduction — the author offers his view on how it is possible to reflect on cult cinema today. In the second part the factual material is presented — one hundred and twenty three essays on cult films given in chronological order so that the reader could get an idea about the evolution of the phenomenon.
The book is intended not only for specialists in cultural and social studies but also for all who enjoy cinema and especially those who appreciate non-standard cinema.
