Scarecrow is to video stores as The Elliott Bay Book Co. is to bookstores: independent, iconoclastic, and obsessed. With more than 60,000 titles in a single outlet, it's a paradise frequented by serious movie lovers — including Bernardo Bertolucci, John Woo, and Quentin Tarantino — and staffed by movie freaks. Loaded with a deep appreciation and understanding of movies, these fanatics have assembled one of the most eclectic movie lists to date. This is a unique list of essential, cool, funny, laughable, important, fluffy, outrageous, you-just-gotta-see videos for anyone interested in the art (both high and low) of moviemaking. Featuring reviews of nearly 4,000 films, organized by category and genre, this book easily satisfies every reader's personal penchant. Includes the best of the best and the worst of the worst in biker flicks, documentaries, foreign films, psychotronics, action, experimental, kids, film noir, murder mysteries, gay and lesbian, music, anime, and more.

Review: The Scarecrow Video Movie Guide

User Review  - Joey Coleman - Goodreads

Despite leaving out some classic/notable movies, this book is sharp, opinionated, informative and ultimately worthwhile. Everyone loves the bastards behind the counter and this is the closest I can find to having one on hand and at my beckon call. Read full review
