Product Description

A Catholic Goes to the Movies

Fr. Daniel Callam’s reflections in A Catholic Goes to the Movies are the fruit of serious pondering of the meaning of a wide range of films, each of which reveals us to ourselves. This is a deeply insightful book, a thoroughly enjoyable one, beautifully written with humour and penetrating exegesis. ~ Michael D. O’Brien, author of Father Elijah

Fr. Callam discusses the moral problems in twenty-first century films with dazzling virtuosity and wide-ranging erudition. This is Catholic criticism that is in every way catholic. ~ M. Owen Lee, author, commentator on the Metropolitan Opera Broadcast

A Catholic Goes to the Movies est un travail de réflexion fort intelligent, courageux et avisé par un auteur qui connaît ses classiques anglais et français. ~ Benoit Patar, founder and former editor of Revue québécoise de cinéma

Fr. Callam’s interesting and provocative book offers a brief but wide-ranging array of film reviews, focusing on the films’ theological meaning. He writes engagingly and evidences a broad and impressive knowledge of both literature and film. The book is a pleasure to read, thought-provoking and enjoyable, and definitely worthwhile reading for anyone interested in the very important connection between faith and film. ~ Nancy Enright, Director of the Core at Seton Hall University, author of Catholic Literature and Film: Incarnational Love and Suffering.
