Dogme Uncut

In 1995, a Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier and three directors swore allegiance to a "vow of chastity" aimed at jolting filmmakers around the world who had become stuck in the mire of slick, emotionally manipulative, bombastic and high-concept movie productions. They named their philosophy "Dogme 95", and its tenets demanded a return to the basic core of filmmaking: the use of natural lighting and a hand-held camera, and the refusal to use special effects, a soundtrack of any kind and movie sets. Followers include the aforementioned Lars von Trier, Thomas Vinterberg, Harmony Korine, Lone Scherfig and Susanne Bier among many others. Dogme Uncut is written by film journalist and historian Jack Stevenson, who, while living in Denmark for the past decade, has had a true insider's view of the Dogme movement - from its conception to its early triumphs to its current incarnation. Dogme's debt to previous film 'waves' is explored, as is the impact Dogme itself has had on current trends in cinema and on today's young filmmakers, Penned in a lively, accessible, and jargon-free style, it is a richly illustrated survey of the entire Dogme canon that is both entertaining and hugely informative.
