This is a response to "Reader from North Carolina July 7, 1999." Yes, the book is a compilation of Mr. McBride's opinions. Yes, it contains lists of movies. That is why it is called "The Book of Movie Lists: An Offbeat Provocative Collection of the Best and Worst of Everything in Movies." Since Joseph McBride is a well-respected film critic and biographer, I was anxious to learn which movies particularly delighted him and which did not. The book did not disappoint me. In fact, I found it delightful. It is filled with fresh insights and anecdotes about movies and it was the catalyst for many discussions among my friends.
