Bunch of Cults

This is an ongoing series looking at books and movies and any other media that I have been meaning to read/watch and have now got round to. What makes these stories special is that they have a non-mainstream sensibility and may not be overtly commercial, but have managed to find a place within the collective consciousness or stand out in some way from the norm.

A prize winning book. A metaphor for a woman's life.

Emperor of the North Pole directed by Robert Aldrich
Lee Marvin and ernest Borgnine. A treatise on the decline of the man's man.

Monster by Naoki Urasawa
A manga comic book that redefines how stories are told. The future of ebooks?

Perdido Street Station by China Mieville
A steampunk fantasy epic. A lesson in the art of skimming.

Scarecrow starring Gene Hackman and Al Pacino
A 70s clash of acting styles. the old and the new.
