Critic Reviews for The 50 Year Argument

  • 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 ...

    January 23, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The 50 Year Argument is a fawning testimonial to the legacy of a cultural giant.

    September 23, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • Martin Scorsese celebrates 50 years of The New York Review of Books in this incisive portrait of a vanguard cultural institution.

    July 1, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The value of the NYRB as a cultural and literary institution is undeniable, and that's what Scorsese and Tedeschi are celebrating here. It's hard to argue against the sentiment.

  • A too-relentless celebration of this bulwark of discourse in American letters.
