Steele Vision: The Face of Italian Cult Cinema
Bright Lights Film Journal... Steele Vision: The Face of Italian Cult Cinema. "...There are certain cohesive ingredients. Cult films usually have an element of unease — anarchy, transgressing certain taboos; they are almost always excessive and camp and speak to the counterculture. Certainly, most have an aura of irreverence, and are usually made on low budgets, therefore requiring a certain energized spontaneity, somewhat like graffiti. After all, film is so porous, and to my mind, so oddly occult, that I think that film itself absorbs odd energies like a living skin."
