Sleaze Artists In Chronicle of Higher Ed

9780822339533 Sleaze Artists: Cinema at the Margins of Taste, Style, and Politics, edited by Jeffrey Sconce, is the featured "Nota Bene" in the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Research section this week. Writes Nina Ayoub, "Trash cinema is an acquired lack of taste. Once relegated to the drive-in or the urban grindhouse, obscure films of schlock horror and sexploitation are now rife for home viewing. ‘For better or worse,’ says Jeffrey Sconce, ‘the entire oeuvre of Doris Wishman is now available on DVD, while John Ford’s is not.’"
