An essential collection of groundbreaking film writing from the legendary Evergreen Review and its cutting-edge coverage of the underground, experimental, pornographic, and political mid-century film scene. 

In this collection of film writing from Evergreen Review, the legendary publication’s important contributions to film culture are available in a single volume. Featuring leading writers such as Nat Hentoff, Norman Mailer, Parker Tyler, and Amos Vogel, the book presents the films of Jean-Luc Godard, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Ousmane Sembene, Andy Warhol, and others, and offers incisive essays and interviews from the late 1950s to early 1970s. Articles explore politics, revolution, and the cinema; underground and experimental film, pornography, and censorship; and the rise of independent film against the dominance of Hollywood. A new introductory essay by Ed Halter reveals the important role Evergreen Review and its publisher, Grove Press, played in advancing cinema during this period through innovations in production, distribution, and exhibition.
