What kind of collection could possibly find common ground among The Son of Kong, Platoon, and Pink Flamingos? What kind of fevered minds could conceive of such a list? What are the unheard-of qualities that tie them all together? The answers: This book. The National Society of Film Critics. And the far-reaching enticements of the B movie itself. Once the B movie was the Hollywood stepchild, the underbelly of the double feature. Today it is a more inclusive category, embracing films that fall outside the mainstream by dint of their budgets, their visions, their grit, and occasionallysometimes essentiallytheir lack of what the culture cops call "good taste." The films in The B List are offbeat, unpredictable, and decidedly idiosyncratic. And that's why we love them.

John C. Anderson holds a law degree and a doctoral degree in philosophy from The Catholic University of America, and practiced law for five years in Washington, D. C. An independent scholar, he now works for the Army.
