CRITICAL PRAISE FOR STONE READER
" **** (Highest Rating)! Amazing. Stone Reader is one of the most satisfying experiences youíre likely to have in a movie theatre this year. Itís a tribute to the transforming power of reading and a reminder of the Sisyphean task that reading can be."
"Itís rare enough when a documentary achieves cult status. Rarer still when it actually changes lives. Stone Reader, a movie about the love of reading, manages to do both."
"A film about the power of literature, the obscurity of genius and the enormous demands of art. Stone Reader is a debut of enormous craft, surety and resourcefulness -- a superlative, soul-baring non-fiction work that will generate torrential word-of-mouth."
"...a loving and lovely fimed ode to obsession."
" *** 1/2 A wonderful film about reader, writers and writing."
" A Must See! Fascinating and compulsively watchable. "
"A-. Stone Reader makes you want to pick up a great novel and consume it in one long gulp. Itís a love letter to literature and literacy, a bibliophileís dream film, dedicated to the joys of fiction and the passions of those who need books like they need food, water and air. It should delight anyone who loves to curl up with a book. Get this guy on Oprah, and quick."
"Magnificent...the movie equivalent of a page-turner."
"[Moskowitz] makes the sale...it's hard not to weep in honor of one small battle won for the written word."
"A great literary mystery. I've never seen a movie that paid more heartfelt tribute to the power of artistic invention."
"A little film masterpiece of persuasion and advocacy. A cinematic equivalent of a bona-fide page-turner. As
moving as a great, bittersweet novel."
"Riveting!...a fascinating film, one that fuels the imagination..."
"Stone Reader reheats the fevers of the freewheeling, icon smashing l960s. Anyone who gives a damn about the
state of popular culture and the future of language will want to take heed."
"A marvelous literary thriller that gets at the way books can stay with people forever. Director Moskowitz subscribes to the cult of the
novel, and I suspect that most people who will love this movie do, too."
Stone Reader radiates intelligence and compassion. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't on the edge of my seat the whole time. "
