This documentary is a must see for anyone who is interested in the history of the National Book Foundation and the booksellers of the past. It is very well made, and has wonderful archival footage from a variety of sources, including the famous and infamous booksellers of the time (which was not all that great an industry, but it's a long way from the exploitative 'dummy' book-sellers of the 40s and 50s.) The highlights of the documentary are the interviews with the booksellers, and the chance to see some of the amazing art that they produced. There is also a very interesting history lesson about how the National Book Foundation was created, and how it was a spin off of the 'Foundation for the American Art Museum'. I also enjoyed the fact that the documentary makers decided to show all the different chapters of the booksellers, rather than just focusing on the one who was the first bookseller. This is a great documentary and I think it is definitely worth seeing, even if you don't know much about the booksellers.

I thought this film was very good, and had a few flaws. First, the producers should have left out the parts that were shot in East St. Louis, Missouri. There were a couple of scenes that were shot in St. Louis, but were edited out of the film. I thought the editing was bad. The sound was very good, but I think they should have used a higher quality recording. The sound was low and made the film sound very muffled. The only other thing that I didn't like about the film was the music. It was very distracting. I didn't like the music, and it made me feel like I was watching a movie with no sound. If they had kept the music, I would have loved the film. I also didn't like the ending. I thought it was okay, but not good. I really enjoyed the documentary, and thought the ending was fine. I would recommend this film, but it is not a must see.

I saw this movie as a young man and it did not change the way I view the world. If you are like me and believe that you are more than the sum of your parts, then this movie will inspire you to find your purpose. I still believe that there is a purpose to your life and I am determined to find it. I am so glad I saw this movie and am looking forward to seeing it again. I really enjoyed watching this movie, and I have nothing but praise for the director, producer, and all of the cast and crew. My hat goes off to all of you.

I have always thought that booksellers were the best people to get a book published. The best kind of booksellers have a good sense of humor and a love of books. I remember that when I was in high school I had a friend named Steve, and I was always telling him about the books he was reading and how he was having a great time reading them. I could tell that he was having a great time reading them, so I was trying to get him to read some more of them. One of the things that Steve did when he was reading the first book, and I had to get him to read it, was go to the bookstore. I don't think I could have done it without the booksellers. It's a shame that I had to take his book and tell him that he wasn't going to like it, but I can tell that Steve would have been so much happier if he had known that he would get a great book published. The booksellers have a great sense of humor, they love reading, and they know that when they go to a bookshop they will get a good book published. If you are reading this and you have not read the book, you should read the book first, then you will get the same feeling as I did when I first went to the bookstore.

It was a very informative and enjoyable documentary. I found the film interesting because it explored a whole variety of aspects of the book business. This includes some interesting aspects of the process of book publishing, how the book publishing business is organized, and how it relates to the book industry. The film also covered the history of the book industry, the writing process, and the authors. The film also covered how authors and publishers are involved in the business of publishing, as well as the difference between the two. The book industry is a business that is quite unique, and many people do not realize just how important the book business is to the industry. There are also a lot of new ways to view the book industry, such as new technologies that are being developed that are allowing people to read the books they want to read, but with the increased need for information and information in the modern world, the book industry is becoming more important to the industry. I also liked the fact that the film had some interesting interviews with people who are involved in the book industry, and they were very informative. Also, they were very entertaining, as the filmmakers did a great job of making the interviews interesting. The interview with David Gelb was the most entertaining. I was surprised that the documentary showed the interview on the last day of the conference, since the interview was so short. The last interview was the most interesting, and it was very informative. I also liked the fact that the film had some interesting visuals that were used to help with the viewers understanding the process. Overall, the film was informative and entertaining. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the book industry, as well as those who are interested in the history of the book industry. It was informative and entertaining, and it was entertaining to watch the interviews and see the book industry in the film.

In my opinion, "The Booksellers" is a fascinating film. While the film lacks a lot of the artistic flair of the director's previous films, the story is quite compelling and the acting is excellent. The only real flaw I could find with this film is that the pace is a bit slow and the editing sometimes seems choppy. However, the film is not a film for everyone. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in this subject matter. 7/10

This is a movie you can't take your eyes off of. You can't stop watching it. The way the cinematography is so brilliant, it really gives the movie an emotional punch. The story is a little slow at the beginning, but once it gets going, it is one of the most powerful movies you'll ever see. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys movies about the Holocaust. It's so powerful and it's so beautifully done, you will never look at a movie the same way again. I know I will. 10/10

I'm not sure if this is the only documentary of its kind, but it's been shown at least one other time (and I haven't seen it since). It's a bit of a downer, in that it's really hard to follow and takes a long time to get going. The documentary mostly focuses on the bookstores and what they do, and you can tell they don't have much time on their hands, and they talk about their different stores and how they do business. There are some very interesting conversations, but it's not very well-paced and it's very difficult to keep up with. There are also a lot of very well-produced, well-shot images of the bookstores, but the people doing the interviews aren't very memorable. There's a lot of opinions and ideas, but it's hard to get invested in them and they're hard to follow. There's also a lot of misinformation about the bookstores. There are also some real good interviews with booksellers, but the majority of the interviewees are very self-aggrandizing and it's hard to keep up with them. I'm not sure if this is a documentary or a profile on the booksellers, but it's hard to tell. It's a decent documentary, but it's not a very good one.

I think the movie was great, but it was just too depressing. I'm not sure what they were going for, but the movie just was not very exciting. It seemed like it was going to be a little bit more. But the ending was so sad. I wish they had showed more of the book and the world that they lived in. I would have liked to have seen more of the life they lived, but it was just too depressing. I would recommend the movie to anyone who wants to know more about the book, or just wants to see what it was like.

My first exposure to this film was at the Melbourne Film Festival in 2005. I saw it and liked it, but I was not really that impressed. I saw it again last night and was stunned. It was the first film that made me cry and it also made me laugh. I watched it twice, and it got me a lot more involved in the movie. I am so happy that the makers of this film are doing so well. I would love to see more of their work.

This documentary about the booksellers in Barcelona is a nice example of a documentary that doesn't try to explain anything. It's a very interesting look at the lives of the men who manage the shops in the city and their day to day life in an urban environment. In the documentary, we see the life of the men of the shop and what they do and how they work. The footage is just as much about their lives as it is about the booksellers themselves. It's almost as if they are narrating the movie for us. There's no commentary, just the men talking. This is an excellent documentary about the booksellers and their lives and their days. It's well worth seeing.

This documentary is an eye opener for anyone interested in the subject of art and the counter culture. It shows a variety of artists who are either influenced by the counter culture or who are in it for the money. The way the film is shot is very well done. It's not your typical documentary, it's more of an art movie. It's very well done and informative. The story of the counter culture is very interesting, and the way the director did it was very creative. It was very interesting to see how the artists talked about their personal experiences in the counter culture. The way they talked about it, it was a very different experience than what the average person would have. This is definitely a must see film for anyone who is interested in the counter culture.

I believe that this is a very important film and I hope that you will take the time to see it. Please contact me if you have any questions.

I really liked this documentary and I'm glad I saw it. It was well written, well produced and very informative. The filmmaker (played by William Dafoe) gave a lot of details and also gave some pretty accurate comments on the book's contents. It is a great movie that anyone can watch and enjoy.

I saw this documentary last week, and was really impressed with it. It was produced by a group of friends, and the guys they brought on to do the film were also amazing. They did a great job of framing the film in a way that was both entertaining and informative. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. I loved how they did the interviews, it was a good mix of real and fictional stories. The acting was great, too. The director, Susanne Knaus, did a great job, and I loved the way that she kept the interviews really short. It didn't feel like you were watching a documentary, and it also added a real sense of realism to the film. I can't wait to see the next documentary that they put out. It was a really good way to start the year, and I definitely recommend it.

A very interesting movie. It is also very intriguing and very different from any other documentary. The movie is about a group of Booksellers and the working conditions that they face. I am not sure how it is related to the world of bookselling, but it is very interesting. It is very hard to understand what is going on in their minds and what they are trying to tell the world about. There are very funny moments and also sad moments. This is not a movie that will make you laugh or cry. It is a movie that will make you think.

I saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival, and I was blown away by this movie. It is absolutely beautiful and captivating. It's the story of a small independent bookstore that is about to close its doors. In this story, the bookstore owner, Nick, is struggling with the loss of his bookstore. He's had a vision of his bookstore for many years and was trying to get the final buyout for the bookstore. He was going to close it because of financial problems. But he was able to get the buyout and save the bookstore. But he was also forced to sell the business because of his two daughters. When he was going to sell the business, he was also forced to sell his wife and daughters. The story is about how he tries to come to terms with his past and try to make sense of his future. The film is so well written and directed, and I'm glad that they chose to do a short version of the film. This is a must-see film for anyone who loves a good story and the history of the art form of book-selling. It's beautiful, and it's a film that I will definitely be looking forward to seeing again.

I am a hardcore fan of the book and have always been inspired by the ideas of the book. I'm glad that the movie did a good job of showing the book in a way that was faithful to the book and that everyone can enjoy. I am still excited about the movie and hope that it will be as good as the book. I think it would have been a great movie if they just had the book and had it be filmed in 3D. It would have been more authentic. I am glad that they did the book justice and if they have a chance to make a second movie, I hope that they do.

This is a fantastic documentary. It is not too heavy on the political commentary but it is not at all preachy either. The subjects are very well-known and their stories are moving. The fact that the subjects are all very different in some way from the subjects of the documentary makes it even more powerful. The film is a great reminder that no matter what we do, we all have a part of our lives we wish we could change. I highly recommend this documentary.
