Folkscanomy: Books on Film and Cinema

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

This collection is Folkscanomy Cinema.

Not to be confused with 'The Psychotronic Video Guide' published in 1996 this is a totally separate publication and contains many entries that are unique to this book. For example. The 'Video Guide" starts with the blaxploitation movie Abby while in this book there are a whole load of Abbott and Costello Meet.... reviews to be explored before that. While the later 'Video Guide' has more recent films reviewed  -  relative to 1996 that is - I think it suffers from leaving out a lot of...

Lugosi! Vampira! Criswell! Tor Johnson! These wild talents shined in Ed Wood's deranged B-movie firmament. Plan 9 from outer space, the outrageous kitsch classic of supernatural horror, and Glen or Glenda, Wood's autobiographical hymn to the joys of transvestism, are, says Richard Meltzer, "Films of stature that will live as long as celluloid has being." Ten years in the making, chock-full of rare and amazing photographs, complete with filmography and bibliography, NIGHTMARE OF...

Forget Les Cahiers de Cinema . Forget the auteur theory. Forget subtleties of lighting or narrative technique or the great moments of screen acting. This book tells you what you need to know before you shell out good money for a cinema seat or settle down in front of your video. How much bum and tit are you going to see? And whose? Covering (or rather uncovering) a wide range of films from the obvious (like Beyond the Valley of the Dolls ) to the more subtle (like Zardoz ) and the real...

From the 1920s through to the 1970s, America's most fearless entrepreneurs created thousands of "adults only" features - exploitation films that promised "sinsational!" treatments of the day's hottest topics. These films played in red-light district cinemas or "grindhouses" for almost half a century, until hardcore pornography and the advent of video rang the death knell for this form of "art". This book traces the uncensored history of these films, from...

In the world of American independent film-making, no one has landed on the cinema map with more explosive force than Robert Rodriguez did with El Mariachi . And he did so with only one camera, no crew, and a budget largely raised by subjecting himself to medical experimentation. Written in an exceptionally witty and straight-shooting style, this book will render conventional film-school programmes obsolete. Exploding the conventional wisdom that you need at least a million dollars to make a...

In a series of outspoken columns once published in the Los Angeles Free Press Ellison delivers a fusillade of criticism, comment and retort designed to initiate both network chief and viewer into an unparalleled "Ellisonesque" condition of discerning viewership. His ostensible subjects are the controllers and producers, as well as the all-important broadcasts. But upon reading these pages it should soon become apparent that Ellison is not merely talking about television. By using the...

Now this lavish book from the publishers of the best-selling Video Nasties! brings you the definitive guide to this much-maligned and rarely chronicled movie genre.

Re/Search #10: Incredibly Strange Films is a functional guide to important territory neglected by the film-criticism establishment, spotlighting unhailed directors - Herschell Gordon Lewis, Russ Meyer, Larry Cohen and others - who have been critically consigned to the ghettos of gore and sexploitation films.
