    One thought on “Gay Directors, Gay Films?: Pedro Almodóvar, Terence Davies, Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, John Waters”

    1. A humdinger of a read, and yes, I just said that about a book that seems to be a text book; BUT it's so much more. This is a fascinating look at 5 gay directors and looks at their films through a sociological, cinematic and queer lens. The reader gets a biography of each director and gets to se how their upbringing and personal history comes into play with their films, or doesn't as the case may be. Looking to answer the question, "do gay directors make gay films", and discovering that they do a [...]

    2. Read half of this for a book club and some of the conclusion--I think it was enough though. We decided beforehand that we wanted to stop at the halfway point, but I probably would have stopped earlier on my own. Author had some compelling questions in the beginning but never presented a coherent thesis or argument later on. Basically a summary of the directors' work with some interpretation through a gay lens. The analyses themselves were weak, which overall detracted from the argument, or some [...]

    3. Unfortunately 80% of this book was spent giving detailed descriptions of each director's films with occasional comparisons to scenes in other films that appear to have influenced the director or that were created as homages. Since I am very familiar with 4 of the 5 directors referenced there was very little new information for me in this book. Near the end of the book the author states that he did not intend to include any biographical information on the directors. Had I know that going in I pro [...]

    4. Far too often film scholarship consists of descriptions of films without any real analysis. Levy's book which has a promising idea never rises above this kind of problem. Looking at the work of Almodovar, Davies, Haynes, Van Sant and Waters, which is in itself an ambitious enterprise, the book presents more biographical and descriptive detail than analysis. Too often the writing suffers not only from this weakness in content but also because the author celebrates his own relationship to the film [...]
