The Film Club A True Story of a Father and Son

Characters ã The Film Club A True Story of a Father and Son í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB At the start of this brilliantly unconventional family memoir David Gilmour is an unemployed movie critic trying to convince his fifteen year old son Jesse to do his homework When he realizes Jesse is beginning to view learning as a loathsome chore he offers his son an unconventional deal Jesse could drop out. I don t think I ve read a self serving craptastic piece of writing it barely touches on how they felt about the films they watched together Instead he pompously tells his son to watch for things in the films things that HE likes or notices but he doesn t seem to ask his son what his SON liked then gives a 4 sentence wrap up at the end Most of the book is the authors pointless to the story search for a job and how he lectures his drug abusing drinking son about how he ll get over girls Honestly if this book wasn t billed as a man and his son watching movies I would have actually felt better about it but it s billed as something that it really isn t I d love to know about how they felt about the films about what they agreed or disagreed on and what his son really learned both about film and about life in general Alas it was not to be

I was a bit skeptical when I first heard about this book There are so many writers out there who are now writing memoirs about their experiments in living I am not so sure that they aren t conducting the experiment just to get material for a book David Gilmour an out of work television hostfilm writer decides to let his teenage son drop out of school on the condition that he watch 3 movies with his father a week He doesn t have to get a job do anything to help his struggling divorced parents around the house or even partake in a hobby It seems that as long as he sits with dad to watch films he can sleep all day drink all night and spend his cash on cigarettes and beer Oh and he s an aspiring rap singer That said it could have been a better book Gilmour picks some interesting films and they could be fodder for discussion between father and son but rather they seem like background Most of the son s concerns revolve around girls which ones like him which ones he likes Exposure to the films of Woody Allen or Francois Truffault don t really seem to provide any solice when he gets dumped by his beautiful girlfriend Dad do you think she really likes me Yawn

Characters ã The Film Club A True Story of a Father and Son í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Lking about Jesse's life and his own romantic dramas with mercurial girlfriends heart wrenching breakups and the kind of obsessive yearning usually seen only in movies Through their film club father and son discussed girls music work drugs money love and friendship and their own lives changed in surprising way. Awhile back I read a touching memoir called Life Death Bialys about a father son pair who take a baking class together and discover new and wonderful things about their complicated relationship I was hoping that The Film Club would give me an eually warm hearted feeling This is the story of a 16 year boy who just isn t uite cutting it in school He is bored in class and does not seem motivated to do any of this work His film loving father decides that maybe letting him drop out of school for a bit will create a long term solution But there s one catch His son must watch three movies a week with him The shocked son readily agrees And so the Film Club begins I then thought perhaps this would be like a book I read and LOVED a long time ago courtesy of my Aunty Marji called The Day I Became an Autodidact by Kendall Hailey about a teenage girl who homeschools herself with a definite plan to take control of her own education and learn everything on her own I so wished I could be her staying home everyday and just reading and reading and reading and becoming an expert on so many things I thought perhaps Mr Gilmour had a similarly structured plan in mind for his son only with movies instead of books Alas I was sorely mistaken Instead of arranging weeks of films by genre or time period or director and teaching his son what he could about a given issues Gilmour appears to pick his films at random He spouts off a sentence or two about each movie mostly while his son rolls his eyes or gazes off into the distance and then he just hits play Gilmour clearly has a great deal of knowledge about film and I felt like the book was a vehicle for him to espouse his views on the given films rather than give the reader any insight into how the films may have affected his son or creating any meaningful dialogue between the two In addition to the movie watching Gilmour spends much of the book focused on his son s pathetic love life His son shares uite a bit with him about the girls who lead him on and break his heart but who he can t help being unnaturally obsessed with And Gilmour offers to him uite possibly the world s worst advice over and over The two also seem to drink a lot together despite his son s young age including a stint in Cuba where the two order beer after beer Gilmour is then shocked when his son reveals that he uses drugs perhaps the persistant malaise lack of interest in anything and disastrous personal relationships were not big enough red flags and despite Gilmour s stern warning at the beginning of the book that if he finds out his son is using drugs that The Film Club will stop and his son will be cut off not surprisingly for a father with no boundaries the incident is brushed aside and Film Club continues in all its pointless nonsense Along the way Gilmour is also proud to include stories about his than civilized relationship with his ex wife who strangely appears to have no objections to this weird educational situation There is no doubt that Gilmour loves his son but he portrays him in this book as one of the biggest losers of all time It would be nice in a couple years to include an Afterward hopefully showing how The Film Club saved his son from an otherwise dead end high school career and how his son is now a successful film maker or something of the sort I am a big believer that mainstream high school is certainly not for everyone and that home school or self directed learning is a great option for many kids But I still believe a semblance of focus and a plan is necessary for learning to actually take place This book did nothing to prove me wrong and I found it a colossal and disturbing disappointment
