"Cinema Penitentiary" is a hilarious and devastating journey through fifty years of American movies and social history. Illuminating the zeitgeist of the times, from the beat years of cold war greasers to the flowering of the summer of love, the book reads more like a coming of age novel ala Salinger than a film critic's memoir.
