John Howard Reid's latest offering is every bit as idiosyncratic as his previous books in this series, and equally compulsive reading for film buffs. The present book provides a wealth of information. Reid finds much to admire in the films he writes about. He is a full-fledged movie buff, but not a drooling one. More than 130 films are featured in this surprising book. Film criticism at its best!
