"Presenting the information movie fans need about those films that the insiders seem to know and love, this handy guide to cult flicks offers perceptive and entertaining entries containing an outline of the plot, characters, and themes; insight into why the film is considered a classic; and essential little-known facts. Featuring such favorites as Barbarella, Betty Blue, Harold and Maude, Roger and Me, The Wickerman, and Withnail and I, this book highlights the best films from more than 50 years of movie making. Also explored are the qualities that make a film a cult movie and whether a film can be both cult and a box office hit."
