The B List, Edited by David Sterrit & John Anderson

Though some of its inclusions are odd – are Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation or Oliver Stone's Platoon really B movies? – this appreciation of 50-odd "low-budget beauties" will remind film buffs of such hard-core examples of the genre as Monte Hellman's laconic Two-Lane Blacktop (Warren Oates: "I go fast enough." James Taylor: "You can never go fast enough") and John Boorman's deep-noir Point Blank. It also whets our appetite for such obscurities as Budd Boetticher's Seven Men from Now, a 1957 cheapie described as "not just a terrific Western, it's a cinema masterpiece", and even The Rage: Carrie 2, "far richer and more absorbing" than the original.
