Sex Murder Art: The films of Jorg Buttgereit cover

    (Jorg Buttgereit) is the censor's worst nightmare... you need to read David Kerekes' Sex Murder Art to see what all the fuss is about
    Amazing... Sharp and incisive... A compelling read
    Fatal Visions
    Excellent... A superb piece of reportage about a genuinely interesting filmmaker

Sex Murder Art is the definitive book on the controversial German film director whose works Nekromantik, Nekromantic 2, Der Todesking and Schramm have earned him a reputation as one of the most original, innovative and dangerous of all modern filmmakers - banned the world over.

Traversing both horror and art-house film genres, Buttgereit's work deals explicitly with sex and death, and features graphic images of necrophilia, murder and suicide. Detailed analysis of all the films, plus promotional features, TV shows, and extensive personal interviews with Buttgereit and his principal actors, go to create this compelling and illuminating study.

Sex Murder Art is possibly the ultimate testament to the obsession, paranoia and politics of underground filmmaking.
