“With a lucidity typical of all his work, Todd May engages with Lonergan's cinema through moral philosophy, but with none of the technical knowledge from ethics or film studies that might alienate a non-expert. Beginning with only Nietzsche's famous adage concerning suffering and survival, this impressive study expands to find an equally philosophical spirit at work throughout Lonergan's art.” –

“Todd May's accessible and engaging book will drive the uninitiated into the films of Kenneth Lonergan and enhance the experience of those who are already admirers. May connects philosophy to the films in ways that both professional scholars and laypersons can appreciate. One wishes more books like this existed.” –
