The Fruit Machine: Twenty Years of Writings on Queer Cinema

In this wide-ranging anthology, Waugh touches on some of the great films of the gay canon. Emerging from the gay liberation movement of the 1970s, Waugh traverses crises from censorship to AIDS, tackling mainstream potboilers along with art movies, documentaries, and avant-garde erotic videos. In these personal perspectives on the evolving cinematic landscape, his words oscillate from anger and passion to wry wit and irony.
