Cashiers du Cinemart, an American magazine from publisher Mike White about independent film, often ridiculed traditional film criticism and concepts with edgy writing and inflammatory points of view, all the while championing an idolatry for offbeat films. Rediscover the best articles from the magazine’s fifteen year history with sections dedicated to Quentin Tarantino, Star Wars, Black Shampoo, unproduced screenplays, celebrity interviews, and much more.
"This lively, quirky volume hops all over the outre-movie map via dozens of articles culled from the magazine and website Cashiers du Cinemart. Subjects range from vintage noir novelist David (Shoot the Piano Player) Goodis and his current counterpart James (L. A. Confidential) Ellroy to an overdue appreciation of the brilliant but inexplicably obscure Canadian cinematic satirist John (The Big Crime Wave) Paizs, a salute to Japan's Lone Wolfe and Cub series and even an affectionate ode to diminutive composer/sometimes actor Paul (Phantom of the Paradise) Williams. Cult filmmakers Monte (Two-Lane Blacktop) Hellman, Guy (Careful) Maddin, zany thespian Crispin (Willard) Glover, novelty deejay Dr. Demento (nee Barry Hansen) and horror host Svengoolie (aka Rich Koz) are among the offbeat interview subjects included in the mix. Informative, irreverent and on the money, Impossibly Funky reps a must read for eclectic movie and pop-culture buffs."
