Grotesque film

Grotesque [...]

or the taboo-images of the most inspired filmmaker of the grotesque of our time, David Cronenberg (The Fly, The Brood, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch)-that is, the grotesque always possesses a blunt physicality that no amount of epistemological exegesis can exorcise. One might define it, in fact, as the very antithesis of "nice." --Joyce Carol Oates, April 1993, originally published in Haunted: Tales of the Grotesque, Copyright 1994 by The Ontario Review, Inc. , sourced via http://www.usfca.edu/~southerr/grotesque.html [Mar 2005]

Federico Fellini

Among the well-known contemporary film-makers (who are, collectively, as given to the grotesque as their writer colleagues), Federico Fellini perhaps stands out: his Satyricon, for example, is an outstandingly and consistently grotesque film. --Philip Thomson via http://mtsu32.mtsu.edu:11072/Grotesque/Major_Artists_Theorists/Theorists/Thomson/thomson4.html [Mar 2005]
