Thoroughly revised and updated, and featuring expanded indexes, a list of Maltin's personal recommendations, and more than two hundred new entries--including many offbeat and obscure films--this new edition is a must-have companion for every movie lover.

Maltin is famous for his voluminous annual, Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide , the go-to reference book since its initial publication in 1969. But that book has 17,000 entries, so it isn't a place to go for the selectivity that hardcore film buffs crave. So now Maltin has written the perfect book for everyone who has ever walked into a video store and been so overwhelmed that they rented a movie they had already seen twice: Leonard Maltin's 151 Best Movies You've Never Seen . In this book, Maltin unearths 151 movies that he thinks have been unfairly under-rated, and explains why. Reading this book will inspire you to see all of the movies described here and you won't be disappointed in any of them.
