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 occasionally--sometimes essentially--their 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."
