Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would say that the book might be more compelling for those aspiring to be movie critics rather than for just anyone who might consider themselves a "Movie Freak." Gleiberman largely reflects on his own experiences as a critic- going into the politics of the job and the importance of holding to one's own opinion despite what others say. Select readers may find the book thought provoking, while others will undoubtedly think it tedious. As one who loves watching movies and reading reviews, but certainly not writing them professionally- I'd have a hard time disagreeing with either group.
A deft weaving of autobiography and cultural analysis by a master prose stylist a great tour through the well-examined life of one of this era's top critics.
