Overview

With titles that draw from the depths of obscurity, this collection features thoughtfully selected essays devoted to such films as Wladyslaw Starewicz’s 13-minute masterpiece The Cameraman’s Revenge (1912), the existential reinvention of the Western genre in El Topo (1970), and Stanley Kubrick’s early classic, The Killing (1956). Each essay features a detailed description of plot, notable trivia tidbits, critical reviews, and interviews with actors and filmmakers such as Francis Ford Coppola, Mario Van Peebles, and Billy Bob Thornton. Film aficionados who think that they’ve ?seen it all” will enjoy referring to this enjoyable mix of movies that are gone?but no longer forgotten.
