It's a Documentary that's celebrating obscure films by showing a crapload of clips. I loved it! Film lovers who crave cult cinema aren't going to want to miss this opportunity to expand their knowledge.

This isn't exactly a thesis that's going to win any awards, especially up against the latest documentary about the Holocaust or the war in Iraq. But as far as entertainment goes, it's about the most fun I've had all summer.
