A rare first edition of an out-of-print criticism book, signed by the author.
British filmmaker Ben Wheatley has made a name for himself directing stylish genre films like Kill List, A Field in England, and High-Rise. In the first published study of his work, Adam Nayman meticulously examines the themes and visual style of Wheatley's films, connecting them to the history of British genre cinema and placing this unique filmmaker in a larger context while arguing for his early inclusion into the canon. The book also includes a new, in-depth interview with Wheatley.
About the author: Adam Nayman is a contributing editor to CinemaScope and author of It Doesn't Suck: Showgirls; The Coen Brothers: This Book Really Ties the Films Together; Paul Thomas Anderson: Masterworks, and David Fincher: Mind Games.
