Reviews for ‘Ex Libris – The New York Public Library’

ex-libris-poster-1“‘Ex Libris’ is a profoundly hopeful movie. We could use that right now.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“If libraries have played a large part in your life and personal development, you’re going to want to head to the Brattle to catch master filmmaker Frederick Wiseman’s colossal portrait of yet another of the world’s most important institutions.” – James Verniere, Boston Herald

“An epic rumination on educational enlightenment.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“As with all of Wiseman’s films, the whole is so very much greater than the sum of its parts.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

Critic’s Pick! “One of the greatest movies of Mr. Wiseman’s extraordinary career and one of his most thrilling.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
