UNDERGROUND FILM: A CRITICAL HISTORY
by Parker Tyler (1969)
Parker Tyler (1904-1974), one of the few great American film critics, was intimate with and enormously respected by many of the underground and experimental filmmakers of his time. In this book, Tyler evaluated the Underground in general and the seminal films in particular, covering the history and scope of the genre with insight and verve. Like Tyler's Screening the Sexes: Homosexuality in the Movies (also available from Da Capo Press), Underground Film is one of the masterpieces of cinema literature.
