Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.04.15] book cult Exploitation

For the first time, Nicolas Winding Refn, writer, producer and director of the PUSHER trilogy, BRONSON, VALHALLA RISING, DRIVE, ONLY GOD FORGIVES and the upcoming NEON DEMON, shares his unique collection of rare American movie posters in the lush new hardcover book Nicolas Winding Refn: The Act of Seeing, available from the debuting NWR imprint of FAB Press.

Available from book stores, online and at venues during Refn's upcoming international and U.S. book tour, "Nicolas Winding Refn: The Act of Seeing" features vintage poster art from more than 300 classic exploitation-era titles such as SPIKED HEELS AND BLACK NYLONS, OBSCENE HOUSE, ALICE IN ACIDLAND, THE TWISTED SEX, TORTURE ME KISS ME and ZERO IN AND SCREAM, to name just a few.

Throughout the book, the controversial Danish filmmaker encourages readers to view this classic artwork in a whole new way and with a newfound appreciation of the shameless hyperbole inherent in masterfully overblown and alluring tag-lines devised solely to lure potential moviegoers into a darkened auditorium to watch other people's lurid lives unravel.

With this new book, the celebrated filmmaker opens the doors to his private collection of obscure exploitation movie posters for the first time to create an extraordinary creation that mirrors the bold sensory experience offered in his own pioneering screen work. Refn has carefully overseen every aspect of the book's production. The result is a book that encapsulates everything he knows about eyewitness confrontation on a heart-felt journey into the art and act of seeing.

Some of the posters found in the book are below.
