New Queer Cinema:
The Director’s Cut

New Queer Cinema

New Queer Cinema: The Director’s Cut is a collection of articles by film critic B. Ruby Rich, the writer who coined the term ‘New Queer Cinema’. Her original New Queer Cinema essay, highlighting a wave of “Homo Pomo” independent gay films such as My Own Private Idaho, was first published as A Queer Sensation by The Village Voice in 1992. It was reprinted later that year by Sight and Sound under the now famous title New Queer Cinema. The Village Voice removed some of the essay’s original text, and subsequent reprints were based on this truncated version, though this new book prints the full essay for the first time.
