Reviews

"A witty, often devastatingly funny, ultra-sophisticated guide for the uninitiated, the would-be cinephile's equivalent to decrypting the Rosetta Stone. Even I had no idea that Clint Howard was a cult figure." --Bruce Goldstein, Repertory Program Director, Film Forum (New York) and founder, Rialto Pictures
