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
