Alexander Shaw is never one to shy away from his genuine feelings towards a film just because of popular opinion. There are many times where he sees value in what people have discarded, and deeply troubling flaws in films that have been positively received. This can put people off, as these reviews are very much informed by the writer's beliefs and opinions. Personally, I admire that, and think that film reviews should be true to the writer's identity, so that wider discussion involving a diverse range of outlooks can expand the way we think about movies.
And that's what this first volume of Movie A Day achieves. It is a collection of thought provoking and entertainingly written reviews from a lover of the craft. If you enjoy talking about movies, this is a brilliant book to pick up.
And yet his reviews are inspiring. He extracts from films the essential components of humanity. If you want to see movies that make you not only escape the torments of your own life, but actually show you how to improve then consider this collection of reviews.
Alexander Shaw is the priest-counselor of the current internet film-review landscape, describing his love for films in a simple, down-to-earth, not-bogged-down-by-theory-or-genre-allergic typography.
His reviews have made me love films I never thought I would or made me reconsider films I thought were easy or boring. Check to see if he can convince you too.
