When dealing with a group of films this diverse there will be very strong opinions. Several of these movies I would never consider watching, but a larger number are worth watching and thanks to this volume I found many worthwhile films I otherwise would have never heard of. The films discussed here range from highly unusual foreign films like "Sound of Noise" featuring a music-hating detective on a case involving musical terrorists presenting disruptive avant-garde percussive performances in Malmö, Sweden, to an assortment of Jean Rollin's absurd vampire films. I personally wish there was less Rollin material discussed, but that's just me. Smalley's analysis of Rollin makes it all worthwhile and is consistently amusing, to wit: "Rollin deliberately disorients the viewer, and you can be forgiven for thinking that you must have nodded off and missed some crucial plot point...."
This book is best used as a portal to films you otherwise wouldn't have known about. Some I already owned, like "A Fantastic Fear of Everything" with the brilliant Simon Pegg, but I would have never found "Doggiewoggiez! Poochiewoohiez!", "The Warped Forest", or "The Red Squirrel" ("La Ardilla Roja") without reading this book.
While it's true that this book has some imperfections and some of the films will not be to everyone's liking, the big advantage here is the nature of most of these movies makes them largely critically ignored and makes this a breath of fresh air. I recommend this to fans of the cinematically peculiar.
