From "35 Directors to Watch," a videography of film's most promising emerging filmmakers from around the world, to "100 Films That Fell Through the Cracks" ("Apartment Zero," "Bottle Rocket," "Smoke Signals," "To Sleep With Anger"), the "Movie Lovers Video Guide" provides readers with astute critical assessments and information on how to purchase the videos.
