Paul Bartel: The Life and Films (Paperback)Stephen B. Armstrong (author)
- We can order this
The first book-length study of its sort, The Life and Films of Paul Bartel provides readers with a detailed biography tracing Bartel's emergence as an independent low-budget auteur whose work aroused admiration from figures like Steven Spielberg, Jim Jarmusch and Brian De Palma. It considers the manner in which his experience as a gay man motivated him to introduce subversive subject matter into his work, too.
Readers will also find interviews with several people who knew Bartel, including Roger Corman, Joe Dante and John Waters, and critical material that considers the thematic and technical aspects of each film.
