Screening the Sexes: Homosexuality in the Movies
Screening the Sexes: Homosexuality in the Movies by Parker Tyler
Parker Tyler was the premier American film critic of his time, and the author of almost twenty books of criticism, theory, biography, and poetry. Screening the Sexes is his masterwork. In the first book devoted to homosexuality in the movies, Tyler looks beyond the obvious to observe the psychology of sex roles while recognizing film as the realm of contemporary mythology. In the end, Screening the Sexes offers an invaluable contribution to our understanding of what sex is, and what the sexes really are.
