Aryan Kaganof
Citizen Kohen

CITIZEN KOHEN is a filmmaker who, traveling internationally to film festivals as an honoured, if badly behaved, guest, slips into the roles of assassin, seducer and philosopher. The progress of Kohen's travels is interrupted by film reviews and analyses written by fictitious critics. These analyses primarily involve a film called femme de siecle, which Citizen Kohen made as an homage to the great Spanish director Jesus Franco. The novel ends with a vast filmography of Citizen Kohen. The novel creates a myth of cinema along the lines of Stephen Laws' Demoniac, Tim Lucas' Throat Sprockets and Theodor Roszak's Flicker.'
