For dozens of young Hollywood moviemakers, happiness is being paid to mount elaborate tributes to the guilty pleasures of their youth. Horror comic books, low-budget melodramas, early rock 'n' rollthe trinity of '50s trash have received the pop-cultural imprimatur from canny directors and writers who see their task as dynamiting the citadel of middle-class tastefulness. Energy is the password, anarchy the politics.
These are the movies your parents warned you to avoid. Now they are the movies keeping the New Hollywood alive.
