Product Details

Praise

“Only a few critics are worth listening to, and Richard Schickel, at eighty-two, stands among them. . . . Thoughtful and accessible.” —The Wall Street Journal
 
“A true memoir of a life at the movies, and as always Schickel is elegant, wry, sad sometimes, but then lit up by something wonderful on the screen. I think this is his most touching book.” —David Thomson, author of A New Biographical Dictionary of Film
 
“Schickel found writing this collection ‘a rather playful business’; readers will find it infused with his joy.” —Kirkus Reviews

“One factor that sets Keepers apart from other books extolling Hollywood’s best . . . is its author, film critic and historian Richard Schickel, a keeper himself after a half-century of ruminating about the cinema.” —The Associated Press

“Schickel has an admirable compassion for younger people whose memories don’t go back as far as his do, but he also has an urgent sense of how important it is to remember what we already know, and to learn what we don’t.” —Martin Scorsese

“Schickel’s insights, when he chooses to go a little deeper, are terrific and accomplish what they should in a book like Keepers: Make you want to see the movies he’s writing about.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“He knows the psychological landscape of the movies better than almost anyone. A sagacious and fiercely independent-minded observer.” —Daphne Merkin
