The book also features indexes for multicultural and woman-centered films. A contributor to Booklist noted that the book contains "some glaring errors" but added that it "is a worthwhile purchase for libraries with extensive film collections.
Adam, writing in the Library Journal , commented that "the unexpected selections throughout should stimulate teachers to expand their syllabuses. In his collection of short stories, Parallel Lines and the Hockey Universe , Tracey focuses on characters who are all associated in some way with a Macedonian family named Traicheff. Most of the stories deal with various aspects of pop culture, from films and junior league hockey to rock musicians like Iggy Pop. Leyshon expressed confusion over the author's "purpose" in making constant references to music, and suggested that many of the stories' "incidents mean more to the author than to the reader.
