The Cinema of Tom DiCillo : Include Me Out Paperback / softback

Part of the Directors' Cuts series


The Cinema of Tom DiCillo: Include Me Out considers for the first time in a single collection this acclaimed, award-winning director's entire oeuvre, addressing and analyzing themes such as identity, family, and masculinity, supported by in-depth coverage of the generic and aesthetic aspects of DiCillo's distinctive and influential film style.

Through exhaustively detailed chapters on each of DiCillo's feature films, presented here is a candid look behind-the-scenes of both the American independent film industry-from the No Wave movement of the 1980s, through the Indie boom of the 1990s, to the contemporary milieu-and the Hollywood studio system. This comprehensive auteur study documents the writing, production, and release of every DiCillo picture, each followed by an extensive Q&A with the director. Also featured is a foreword written by acclaimed actor and filmmaker Steve Buscemi, as well as exclusive interviews and commentary with many cast members and collaborators, including Kevin Corrigan, Maxwell Caulfield, Melonie Diaz, Peter Dinklage, Gina Gershon, Catherine Keener, Alison Lohman, Matthew Modine, Chris Noth, Sam Rockwell, John Turturro, and members of legendary rock group the Doors.

Films covered include Johnny Suede, Living In Oblivion, Box of Moonlight, The Real Blonde, Double Whammy, Delirious, When You're Strange, and Down in Shadowland.
