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 ...
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.
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.
The 50 Year Argument is a fawning testimonial to the legacy of a cultural giant.
Auteurists will be hard-pressed to find much stylization that betrays Scorsese's participation, but bless him for letting us spend an hour and a half pretending that American letters still matter in mainstream as they did in the '60s.
The New York Review Of Books: A 50 Year Argument Review is a substantial and surprisingly accessible browse through half a century of The New York Review of Books. If only there were more of it.
Surprisingly one of Scorsese's most accessible and enjoyable nonfiction films, more digestible for a wide audience than one would expect given its highbrow subject matter.
