Praise For…


"A self-described 'source of information about films that might have been neglected or overlooked or, conversely, well known at one time and now worth a reminder,' this hodgepodge guide may most appeal to readers who value a New York Times recommendation above all else. The collection includes 'art films,' small-scale indies and foreign-language films, as well as coming-of-age comedies and thrillers that 'flourish on the far side of respectability,' according to critic A.O. Scott's introduction." - Publishers Weekly
