Latin phrase meaning "beyond which not" - describing the ultimate or defining example of its kind. So for example, Performance is the ne plus ultra of the 60s pop genre; Cannibal Holocaust is the ne plus ultra of Italian cannibal movies; An American Werewolf In London is the ne plus ultra of horror comedies; and Revolver is the ne plus ultra of really, really terrible films.
