Movie Criticism: G.B. Shaw


“I do my best to be partial, to hit out at remediable buses rather than at accidental shortcomings, and at strong and responsible rather than weak and helpless ones.”

“A man is either a critic or not a critic.  He cannot help himself.”

“Criticism is, has been, and eternally be as bad as it possibly can.”


“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one insists in trying to adapt the world to himself.  Therefore, all progress depends upon the unreasonable man.”  Man and Superman


“If you want to tell people the truth, you better make them laugh, or they’ll kill you.”
