From the trenches of independent American film of the 1990s, Todd Haynes has emerged in the twenty-first century as one of the world's most audacious filmmakers. In a series of smart, informative essays, this book traces his career from its roots in "New Queer Cinema" to the Oscar-nominated "Far from Heaven" (2002), taking in along the way such landmark films as "Poison" (1991), "Safe" (1995) and "Velvet Goldmine" (1998). Contributors look at his films from many different angles, including his debts to the avant-garde or such noted precursors as Rainer Werner Fassbinder, his adventurous uses of melodrama, and his incisive portrayals of contemporary life.
