The first in-depth examination of the popular and controversial Danish film movement.
The future of filmmaking starts here. What began as a ripple of discontent in Denmark has turned into a full-fledged new wave. In 1995, when Lars von Trier, not yet the award-winning director of Breaking the Waves, and three comrades issued a tenpoint "Vow of Chastity" for the making of simpler, more truthful movies, cynics in the film business refused to take it seriously. Five years later, the international success of the raw, uncompromising Dogme95 films -- most notably The Celebration and The Idiots -- has fired a volley of shots across the bows of a staid and bloated Hollywood-driven industry. Richard Kelly's investigation of the Dogme95 movement is a piece of "gonzo journalism" in which Kelly sallies forth in search of the Dogme brothers and their accomplices, seeking to hammer out truth from rumor in what is itself an appropriately austere and anarchic piece of cinematic mischief. Composed of interviews with the filmmakers, discursive overviews of the films and shooting, and Kelly's own diaries, The Name of This Book Is Dogme95 is nothing short of a piece of instant film history.

"Richard Kelly's engaging investigation of the Dogme movement . . . takes several pot shots at mainstream cinema. Kelly is also an astute observer of Dogme eccentricities and the movement's place in film history, and his book--a kind of travel narrative--is written in a breezy, accessible style." --Jonathan Bing, Variety
"Serious students of cinema will enjoy Richard Kelly's investigation of Lars von Trier's Vow of Chastity, a 10-point manifesto intended to create 'simpler, more truthful, less boring movies'. It is a lot more fun than Festen." --London Evening Standard, 'Film Books of the Year'
"Extremely illuminating, often hilarious . . . Kelly has avoided the trap of deathly-dullness that most arthouse companions fall into. If you want to know more about Dogme then this is the best place yet." --Total FilmAbout the Author:
