Flesh and Excess - On Underground Film

Author(s): Jack Sargeant

horror & cult cinema | film studies

Focusing on key works by two award-winning underground filmmakers, Usama Alshaibi and Aryan Kaganoff, Sargeant examines the desire and the need for shocking bodily representations and interventions in film. Challenging readers to examine the nature of pleasure, of viewing and of experiencing cinema, he punctuates his writing with philosophical analysis while exploring industrial culture, surrealism, butoh dance, fine art and medical fetishism. Flesh and Excess is Jack Sargeant's first book since 1999.
