WHAT MAKES A CULT FILMMAKER?
 
Whether pioneering in their craft, fiercely and undeniably unique, or critically divisive, cult filmmakers come in all shapes and guises. Some gain instant fame, others instant notoriety, and more still remain anonymous until a chance change in fashion sees their work propelled into the limelight. 

In this nifty little book, Ian Haydn-Smith handpicks a selection of brilliant directors you should know – from industry heavyweights like Tim Burton and David Lynch, to the strange and surreal imaginings of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Ana Lily Amirpour. Discover the minds behind such beloved features as MelancholiaEasy RiderLost in Translation and more. From little knowns with small, devout followings, to superstars walking the red carpet, each is special in their individuality and their ability to inspire, antagonise and delight

Cult Filmmakers is an essential addition to any film buff's archive, as well as an entertaining introduction to the weird and wonderful world of cinema.
