Edited by veteran critics David Sterritt and John Anderson, this is an anthology of low-budget and otherwise non-mainstream films that are as deserving of critical scrutiny as the bigger. glitzier movies that tend to dominate the conversation.
Featured essays include Roger Ebert on Peeping Tom and May; Amy Taubin on Primer; J. Hoberman on Red Planet Mars; Matt Zoller Seitz on To Live and Die in L.A., Richard T. Jameson on Gun Crazy; Stephanie Zacharek on Vanishing Point, Grindhouse and Out of the Past; Jami Bernard on Reservoir Dogs; Jonathan Rosenbaum on The Naked Spur and Man of the West, and many more.
