Mike White's
Impossibly Funky:
A Cashiers du Cinemart Collection




Harangue for Hollywood! From the blighted urban squalor of Detroit–Paris of the Midwest–came enfant terrible Mike White and his mutant publication, Cashiers du Cinemart. For fourteen years and fifteen issues the writers of Cashiers du Cinemart provided a treasure trove of writing on film and popular culture.

This book collects the best articles from the fifteen year history of Cashiers du Cinemart magazine with sections dedicated to Quentin Tarantino, Star Wars, Black Shampoo, Unproduced screenplays, celebrity interviews, and much more. Everything has been refreshed, polished, and improved for this volume of movie mayhem.

“Mike White and his fellow writers bring insight, humor and knowledge to the diverse word of cinema. Impossibly Funky... Impossibly Entertaining! – Greydon Clark

“Obsessive, indulgent, wildly erratic, yet Impossibly Funky still warms my hardened critic's heart because of the burning passion for moviegoing of the writer. It’s manifested in the nutty, beyond-left-field takes on popular geeky movies, and, even better, the stretch beyond Lucas and Tarantino to Kenneth Fearing, Travis McGee, and the unheralded comic genius of Canadian cinema, John Paizs. I’ve got to get my butt to Black Shampoo!” – Gerald Peary, critic, The Boston Phoenix

Mike White and his Cashiers approach film writing from a point of the compass I never knew existed. It’s wild navigating out there in the film world and Impossibly Funky makes it a brisk and exhilarating trip while keeping one cool hand on the tiller! – Guy Maddin
