To read Rainer's screenplays is to rediscover, even reinvent, the films all over again, but more importantly to realize that images and mise-en-scène are as key to how Rainer's films work as is language. --The Independent

The scripts record the unique structure of [Rainer's] films, the stresses, strains, and crackling of voices layering over and into one another. Their publication is an important moment for feminist film. --Cineaste

Rainer's films are not highly accessible but are important to the critical imagination as an example of the sustained exploration of political and feminist theory. --Choice

Rainer's important work in the area of avant-garde filmmaking in the seventies and eighties is amply recorded in this book . . . --Cantrills Filmnotes'

The scripts of Rainer's five films, presented here along with essays, an interview, and bibliography, demonstrate the evolution of her political consciousness as well as her creative engagement with the contemporary film and cultural scene. These texts challenge the illusionist and ideological presumptions of mainstream culture and cinema.
