Cinema critic and manager of film website Sensacine Alejandro C. Calvo presents his first book, a cinematic exploration of why life and movies go hand in hand.
Across their entire lifetime, the average person will watch around 5000 films. We love to be immersed in stories with characters and storylines that click with our inner selves in ways we can't explain. Finally, someone is here to help us understand why cinema has become such a vital part of human experience.
In A Film for Every Year of Your Life, journalist and film critic Alejandro G. Calvo becomes your own personal guide, recommending films according to whichever stage of life you find yourself in. With an erudite style punctuated by personal anecdotes, Calvo explores the threads that connect Steven Spielberg with our dreams, David Lynch with our nightmares, and Jean-Luc Godard with the loves of our lives, proving that there are always life lessons to be learned from the big screen.
