Editorial Reviews

The Globe and Mail
Crouse is a sort of Canadian version of David Thomson, and this sequel to The Best 100 Movies You've Never Seen focuses winningly on the arcane, the little-known and the unjustly forgotten.
Sacramento Book Review
A must have for the newbie cinephile as well as for anyone who enjoys good (and sometimes bad) movies and wants to improve their breadth of knowledge . . . provides film suggestions for everyone-and then some.
The Hartford Courant
Here's a book that movie buffs will enjoy and debate . . . if you are looking for help with your next Netflix pick or video store choice check out Crouse's new book.
