PYODM book review in American Cinematographer Magazine!

posted in News |

New York filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman has been writing, directing and producing independent films since the early 1970s, when he and Yale classmate Oliver Stone collaborated on the low-budget romps The Battle of Love’s Return and Sugar Cookies. Through his production company, Troma, Kaufman has distributed films by major directors, including Brian De Palma, Sam Fuller, and Dario Argento, as well as movies featuring early appearances by Kevin Costner, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert De Niro, Jill Clayburgh and a multitude of other actors. To most of Troma’s fans, however, Kaufman is known as the auteur behind some of the most outrageous and enjoyable exploitation films of all time: the environmentally conscious splatter-fests The Toxic Avenger and Class of Nuke ‘Em High, the Shakespearean parody Tromeo and Juliet and, most recently, Poultrygeist, a musical satire that takes on both limousine liberals and fast-food conglomerates.
