The B list : the National Society of Film Critics on the low-budget beauties, genre-bending mavericks, and cult classics we love( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Once the B movie was the Hollywood stepchild, the underbelly of the double feature. Today it is a more inclusive category, embracing films that fall outside the mainstream by dint of their budgets, their visions, their grit, and occasionally - sometimes essentially - their lack of what the culture cops call "good taste."" "Featuring the choicest noir, neo-noir, science fiction, horror, western, midnight movies, and more - from critics like David Ansen, Jami Bernard, Roger Ebert, Carrie Rickey, Richard Schickel, and Kenneth Turan - the films in The B List are offbeat, unpredictable, and decidedly idiosyncratic."--Jacket

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love and hisses : the National Society of Film Critics sound off on the hottest movie controversies( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection presents differing opinions of top American critics on selected films, with reviews situated back to back. For instance, Richard Schickel loved almost everything about Terms of Endearment (1983), while Pauline Kael liked only Shirley MacLaine's lead performance. Critics included are all members of the National Society of Film Critics, and the films were chosen because, according to editor Peter Rainer, they "define the ways these writers approach both movies and criticism." The reviews are all reprints, which Rainer cites as a benefit, since they were written without any intention of debate. Yet, the scope of this book is vague. There is an overwhelming emphasis on recent films, yet several from the 1970s are included. Nearly every well-known reviewer of the last 30 years is represented.-- Library Journal review
