Review:

"What makes "Flaming Classics so refreshing is not so much its innovative angle as its conversational edge. Instead of the autoerotic jargon that all too often excites film critics while leaving their audiences unsatisfied, Doty's intelligent, accessible analyses convert his discourse into a pleasurable intercourse between writers and readers of both academic and pop-culture texts."
-"Rain Taxi
..."peeks into new spaces with a sharp, funny eye to the tornado that continues to rage between marginalized queer cultures and mainstream cinema."
-"Rain Taxi
""Flaming Classics by Alexander Doty turns up the temperature on gay currents in cinema from "Caligari to "Psycho" -"Flaunt."
"This year's many books that probe the sexual nature of film, film stars and filmmakers could stock a mini-library. Part of the entertaining group is "Flaming Classics by Alexander Doty, who argues that "The Wizard of Oz" is a lesbian fantasy -- a notion that many "friends of Dorothy" might passionately debate."
-Publishers Weekly
..."Doty often takes a fresh approach to overexamined works.."
-Library Journal

Synopsis:

Flaming Classics turns the heat up on the movies we love best. In his wicked readings of film favourites, Alexander Doty takes us to the queer side of criticism, offering fresh and controversial views of the stars, the plots, and the directors of our best loved and most iconic films. Arguing against the assumption that only explicitly gay films are subject to gay readings, he looks at six classics and reads them for their queer potential. With both affection and scholarly rigor, he teases out the lesbian fantasy inherent in The Wizard of Oz , the gay nightmare narrative of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari , the bisexual erotics of Gentleman Prefer Blondes , the queerness of Norman Bates, and even makes a compelling argument about Citizen Kane's dying word, 'Rosebud'.
