The B List: The low-budget beauties, genre-bending mavericks, and cult classics we love (Da Capo Press. $15.95. 288 pages), edited by David Sterritt and John Anderson, has been released as a paperback. The book is organised by genre – film noir, road movies, horror movies etc. Contributors include the Village Voice’s J. Hoberman, Newsweek magazine’s David Ansen, Salon’s Stephanie Zacharek, Roger Ebert and others.
The Noir section is fairly predictable, though The Well (1951) is a new one for me. I see King Greole (1958) is included under a rock movies section, though it could also be seen as having noir elements, and for me is Elvis Presley’s best movie (I am a closet Elvis fan).
