From filmmaker and journalist Mike Watt comes a new collection of essays focusing on more than 70 "underseen" films. These include "lost" films like Johnny Depp's directorial debut, "The Brave"; "Don's Plum", the film that Leo DiCaprio sued to hide from the public; Mauritzio Nichetti's sexy live-action/animated comedy "Volere Volare"; and "The Ghastly Love of Johnny X", the last 35mm black 'n white science fictional musical ever made! Selecting movies from all over the world, these are titles that every film lover needs to know about! (2nd Edition, revised for 2015.) If youve not read this book, then youre not a film connoisseur. Do yourself a service and pick up Watt's latest effort. Do it now and you might learn something. Dr. Rhonda Baughman An essential guide to around 70 movies that are seldom discussed by other publications. Mike Watt exposes the reader to some wonderfully obscure and seldom seen films. Anyone into cinema should check this out. Granted, these films aren't for everyone, but Mike uncovers some gritty gems here, maybe gems that the actors involved didn't want anyone to see. With all the generic pablum being fed to mainstream audiences, this is a movie buffs wet dream. Written by a man who knows film. Check it out. 42nd Street Pete, Grindhouse Purgatory, 8mm Madness, and Gunfighters of the Drunken Master. Great reference guide for a lot of films that don't make it into reference guides. - Doug Waltz, Divine Exploitation Michael started young, coloring outside the Lines and now he's operating outside the Law of Moviedome. Congratulations! Bill Johnson (Texas Chain Saw Massacre II)
