“A lovely documentary – contemplative and captivating. I finished the film and felt compelled to turn off the screen and pick up a book.”~The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Aroview: A wistful and fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of antiquarian and rare book collecting. Focusses on shops, dealers and collectors from New York City, including Stephen Massey (founder of Christie's NY Book Department) and Nancy Bass Wyden (owner of Strand Bookstore). Narrated by Parker Posey.

3 stars (Good Enough) For aficionados, a record of a lost world-thanks to the internet. Unlike the great US & UK docos on vinyl stores struggling on, this is humorless. Substandard cinematography. Simple explanations of why some books have value and others not would help.~Sandy
