"Stonereader" is a shoestring indie documentary about a guy (Moskowitz) who reads a book which has been out of print for 30 years and then goes in search of the author. Part docu film-maker, part private investigator, and part literature freak, Moskowitz spends considerable time and effort in his quest to locate the author of "Stones of Summer" though his motives are questionable. Regardless, the result is a worthy film, given it's indieness and meager premise, and a good watch for those into literature, the creative process, or just documentaries about Americana and/or novels. It is also a good commercial advertisment for the book which the film alleges was reprinted after the film was released. (B)
