3+ Hours of Non-Thematic Scenes
29 September 2017 | by asesqSee all my reviews

This is possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. It is a seemingly endless series of scenes that are only related in that they take place at the New York public library. There are so many wonderful stories that could be told of the NYPL; it is truly sad that this movie tells none of them.
