Trailer Watch: Martin Scorsese’s NYRB Documentary The 50 Year Argument
“As long as we could pay the printer, we could publish anything we wanted,” says New York Review of Books co-founder Robert H. Silvers in this trailer for The 50 Year Argument, a documentary about the literary institution. It’s co-directed by Martin Scorsese and David Tedeschi, the director’s editor on recent documentaries including Rolling Stones concert movie Shine a Light and the Fran Lebowitz profile Public Speaking. The film will be playing at NYFF before debuting on HBO on September 29th. It looks to be catnip for longtime readers of the publication, which in a just world would be just about everybody.
