Críticas:

"West's persuasive text makes you want to go back and revisit this body of work from her perspective"--Video Watchdog; "quite a profound and thorough analysis of the extreme French art house and horror films of this movement"--Fangoria; "West's book is so tres fantastique that I wish it were a reference guide that covered hundreds of films"--Flick Attack; "fans and scholars of the New French Extremity genre will welcome Alexandra West's Films of the New French Extremity...a timely and well-researched examination of the darker side of French cinema. West's analysis is, thankfully, readable and relatable, avoiding the often suffocatingly dull academic prose found in genre studies. Films of the New French Extremity will most likely serve as the analytic lightning rod for fans and scholars of the NFE for some time to come...the first comprehensive overview and timeline of one of the most challenging genres to emerge in recent years"--Bright Lights Film Journal; "a comprehensive examination"--ProtoView. "quite a profound and thorough analysis of the extreme French art house and horror films of this movement"--Fangoria; "West's book is so tres fantastique that I wish it were a reference guide that covered hundreds of films"--Flick Attack. "West's book is so tres fantastique that I wish it were a reference guide that covered hundreds of films"--Flick Attack

Reseña del editor:

The films of the New French Extremity have been reviled by critics but adored by fans and filmmakers. Known for graphically brutal depictions of sex and violence, the sub-genre emerged from the French art-house scene in the late 1990s and became a cult phenomenon, eventually merging into the horror genre where it became associated with American torture porn. Decidedly French in flavor, the films seek to reveal the dark side of French society. This book provides an in-depth study of New French Extremity, focusing on such films as Trouble Every Day (2001), Irreversible (2002), Twentynine Palms (2003), High Tension (2003) and Martyrs (2008). The author explores the social implications of cinematic cruelty presented not as "violent films" but as "films about violence.
