In this first collection of film writing from Evergreen Review, the legendary publication's important contributions to film culture are available in a single volume. Featuring such legendary writers as Nat Hentoff, Norman Mailer, Parker Tyler, and Amos Vogel, the book presents writing on the films of Jean-Luc Godard, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Ousmane Sembene, Andy Warhol, and others and offers incisive essays and interviews from the late 1950s to early 1970s. Articles explore politics, revolution, and the cinema; underground and experimental film, pornography, and censorship; and the rise of independent film against the dominance of Hollywood. A new introductory essay by Ed Halter reveals the important role Evergreen Review and its publisher, Grove Press, played in advancing cinema during this period through innovations in production, distribution, and exhibition.

Editor Ed Halter began working on this book in 2001 with Barney Rosset, using his personal files and interviews with him as initial research.

BARNEY ROSSET (1922-2012) was the legendary publisher who brought to America the works of dramatists Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter, the anti-imperialist political writings of Che Guevara and Ho Chi Minh, and who published the scandalous novels of Henry Miller and William Burroughs in spite of outrage and accusations of indecency. Beat poets, French surrealists, German expressionists, and dramatists of the absurd-they all found a home at Grove Press, which he owned and ran from 1951-1985, and in the pages of the avant-garde magazine Evergreen Magazine, which he founded in 1957. A champion in the fight against all forms of puritanism, Rosset was taken to court several times on obscenity charges, most notably for publishing three novels now considered classics, Lady Chatterley's Lover, The Tropic of Cancer, and Naked Lunch. In 1964, during a trial that would forever change the meaning of American culture and contribute to breaking down most censorship barriers, the Supreme Court would rule in his favor against those who demanded that The Tropic of Cancer be banned. Rosset had a lifelong interest in film as an art form. After serving in WWII, he shot the anti-racist documentary Strange Victory. In 1965 he commissioned Samuel Beckett to write the short movie Film, which Rosset then directed and produced starring Buster Keaton. In 1967, he bought a cinema in the Village, where he showed the Swedish film I Am Curious (Yellow), whose explicit scenes of sex and nudity brought him once again to court. Rosset was named an officer of arts and letters by the French cultural ministry and honored by the National Coalition Against Censorship for defending free expression. In 2008, he also received the lifetime achievement Literarian Award from the National Book Foundation in honor of his contributions to American publishing. A posthumous autobiography titled Barney Rosset: My Life in Publishing and How I Fought Censorship was published in 2017.
