    Unlike many wonderful documentary features I've seen that broaden their scope of appeal to become universally accessible and share relevant and connecting insights, The Booksellers is anything but that. I found it boring, lacking in intimacy and relevance, and presented in a very standard format.

    This was some pretty good book porn but I wish the filmmakers were a little more thorough in identifying the speakers and giving context.

    A documentary talking about books is always interesting, and it is great to hear about life of booksellers, to see those bookshops full of books, to know stories about books and authors. However, there is a moment documentary loses itself and talks about books just visual and monetary objects, and do not talk about their contents and book phylosophy.

    Book lovers will find this doc informative and very interesting but it's too long. Cutting 1/2 hour out would help it becoming less repetitive.

    It's a documentary about a fascinating sub-culture of quirky characters. It drags a bit in spots.It is a series of profiles of a collection of book dealers.

    I loved this documentary. Don't miss the poignant line about the point of collecting (not specific to books, relates to collecting anything).
