Society of the Spectacle and Other Films

by Guy Debord

Book review

"The specialists of the cinema said that its revolutionary politics were bad; the politicians among all the left-wing illusionists said that it was bad cinema. But when one is at once a revolutionary and a filmmaker, one may easily demonstrate that their general bitterness derives from the obvious fact that the film in question is the exact critique of the society which they do not know how to combat; and a first example of the cinema which they do not know how to make." Guy Debord, on his film 'Society Of The Spectacle'] Presented for the first time in English, this volume includes the full texts of Debord's first 5 films, with an introduction explaining, amongst other things, why Debord is determined that the films should never again be shown.
