    One thought on “Subversion: The Definitive History of Underground Cinema

    1. Eileen

      Great history of underground cinema, very detailed and very clear - my only caveat was that it is a bit polemical.

    2. Andrew

      I knew Duncan from back in the days when I was programming a festival that brought him to the US. He was a nice guy, although I remember thinking his film was silly and not very good. This book reminds me of that movie, but I'm still interested because how often does someone write a book like this these days?

    3. Joe

      took me awhile to get started, but once I was over the foreword really really enjoyed it. Amazingly informative & hugely inspiring. Excellent take on the early art vs nonArt and how this relates to cinema. The stuff on Britain avant garde LFMC was great (brought back my experience of visiting their space in Camden and not feeling it had any connection to me).

    4. Mike Everleth

      Takes an extremely different tact than most film books by tying its key arguments to pre-cinema history. Opens up whole new modes of thinking of the avant-garde film arts.
