From the same brain trust that brought you The Rock Sb*s Dictionary, the hilarious, bestselling guide to insiderist rock arcana, comes The Film Sb*s Dictionary, an informative and subversively funny A-to-Z reference guide to all that is held sacred by Film Sbs, those perverse creatures of the repertory cinema. No longer must you suffer silently as some clerk in a Tod Browning s Freaks T-shirt bombards you with baffling allusions to wire-fu pictures, Todd-AO process, and Sam Raimi. By helping to close the kwledge gap between average moviegoers and incorrigible Sbs, the dictionary lets you in on hidden gems that film geeks have been hoarding (such as Douglas Sirk and Guy Maddin movies) while exposing the trash that Sbs inexplicably laud (e.g., most chop-socky films and Mexican wrestling pictures). Delightfully illustrated and handily organized in alphabetical order for quick reference, The Film Sb*s Dictionary is your fail-safe companion in the video store, the cineplex, or wherever insufferable Film Sbs congregate.
