Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Martin Scorsese celebrates 50 years of The New York Review of Books in this incisive portrait of a vanguard cultural institution.
Fresh: A fascinating look back on the major social and political events of the second half of the 20th century and early years of the 21st ...
Fresh: The 50 Year Argument is a fawning testimonial to the legacy of a cultural giant.
Rotten: It has noble intentions, but seems aimed more at subscribers than viewers; it's never a good sign when a movie's most visually and dramatically compelling moment is a three-minute clip from The Dick Cavett Show.
