Chapter 5 treats Jess Franco’s two “low” European remakes of Les yeux. The chapter situates Franco within the larger context of Spanish ﬁlm culture and attempts to demonstrate the revolutionary implications of making “body genre” ﬁlms during the fascist era. Chapters 6 through 8 deal with horror and the avant-garde. Chapter 6 discusses Yoko Ono’s documentary Rape (1969), a cinema verité ﬁlm in which a real woman is really stalked by Ono’s ﬁlm crew. In addition to raising ethical questions about the very existence of such a ﬁlm, and of other avant-garde documentaries of the period, the chapter discusses the way that such issues entered mainstream discussion through press coverage of an alleged snuff ﬁlm, and Yoko Ono’s own relationship to “low” culture and exploitation cinema.
But you are still in a living room or a bedroom. To be kidnapped [by the images] you have to be in a movie theater, seated in the dark among anonymous strangers. (60, italics mine) Sontag’s fetishization of traditional modes of exhibition and theatrical space is quite extraordinary. To remove a ﬁlm from the sacralized space of the theater is to disrespect the ﬁlm and—by extension—to demote what had previously been regarded as radical avant-garde and modernist viewing practices (outside the home) to the status of “distraction,” or “lowbrow” culture (inside the home).
What is particularly interesting for our purposes, though, is that MacMahonism appealed to the same directors who were celebrated in the United States for providing an alternative to Hollywood and to commercialized American culture. Claude Chabrol, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Melville, Luc Moullet, and François Truffaut were all, Hoberman and Rosenbaum point out, “early apostles of the MacMahonist faith” (26). Two deﬁning works of the French New Wave, Breathless and Shoot the Piano Player, fragment themselves “into a shrine of MacMahonist fetishes”: the celebration of petty gangsters’ ethical codes, the iconization of macho ﬁgures such as Bogart, the appearance of important ﬁgures such as Jean-Pierre Melville and important cultural signiﬁers such as Cahiers du cinéma within the works, the homage to the “style of a cheap 1950s Columbia Pictures Melodrama,” and the crossing of “metaphysical absolutes with locker-room sexual humor” (28).
