Sirk’s Legacy

(p.251) Chapter Eleven Into the Future
The Films of Douglas Sirk

Tom Ryan

University Press of Mississippi

Sirk died in 1987. His films are his legacy, and they’ve already influenced several generations of cineastes. Among them are film critics in Europe, America and beyond and filmmakers such as Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Todd Haynes, Kathryn Bigelow and, more recently, Luca Guadagnino and Guillermo Del Toro. This chapter examines the legacy and the reasons particular films have been described as “Sirkian”.
