An entertaining long documentary with many insights in the NY Public Library
EX LIBRIS: NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY: ENTERTAINING
Whether I would last three and a half hours to watch a documentary
about New York's public library was a question I asked myself when I
landed in Eye Cinema (Amsterdam). So without a break.
It went excellent. Frederick Wiseman tells you a story in such a 'zen'
way that it's easy to keep looking. The beauty is: there are no
voice-overs. He lets the image speak for himself.
You get different insights into what happens within the walls of the
central building at Bryant Park and the other locations of the library
in the city New York. And that's a lot. The library organizes
activities for a wide variety of audiences. The film also let you
listen in on the board's conversations.
NOT FOR EVERYONE
For people who love learning, books and archives, your interest is
always stimulated with this film. Still, I do not think everyone will
entertain themselves with Ex Libris: New York Public Library.
Basically, the idea of a documentary about the public library in New
York should already appeal to you, otherwise I think this film will get
An entertaining, three and a half hour documentary, for those who want
to know more about the New York Public Library. Recommended.
