Ex Libris: The New York Public Library's user reviews

Los Angeles Times
10.0

Ex Libris: The New York Public Library is more than a magisterial mash note to that distinguished establishment, it?s a heartening examination of the vastness of human knowledge and the multiple ways we the people endeavor to access it.

'Ex Libris: The New York Public Library' is a film as overwhelming as what it tries to encompass.

This is slow, almost languid filmmaking, yet it?s a delight to watch the countless ways in which the library is still capable of lifting us.

7.0

Shot and edited with Wiseman?s customary poetry and precision, Ex Libris is structured as a series of forays from the Library?s Fifth Avenue heart to its orbiting satellites, and back again.

A film so rigorous, precise, transparent and, most importantly, alive that simply subjugates.
