"New Queer Cinema" provides a timely and comprehensive introduction to one of the most 'cutting edge' film movements of the 1990s. Tracing its impact upon representations of gender and sexuality in both independent and mainstream cinema culture, this volume explores how recent lesbian, gay and queer film making has sought to radically reclaim or subvert the negative stereotypes, genres and narratives of the past, in order to envisage an unapologetic and irreverent new horizon of politics, pleasure and identity in film beyond the 'hetero-normative'. Films considered include "Poison" (1991), "My Own Private Idaho" (1991) and "The Living End" (1992).
