A worthy documentary for an American Giant Oct. 11 2013
By MACLEAR - Published on
In these days of flash in the pan celebrities Roth stands out as an artist who has devoted his life to creating some of te most memorable characters in American fiction cast in language as razor-sharp as anything written in the past hundred years.
Mr. Roth appears here as urbane, modest, witty, charming, and intense. I was fortunate enough to meet him at his 80th Birthday gala held in Newark's Art Museum and found him to be extremely courteous. Any fan of this great author should purchase this as it gives a well-rounded portrait of the man and of the artist.

This is a very well done documentary. You really are introduced to the man and his books.
It is a wonderful blend of the author and some of his friends talking about his work.

terrific documentary Jan. 3 2014

Loved watching this film on the life of Philip Roth. Read so many of his books that it added to my understanding of him as an author. Highly recommend to any fan.
Definitely worthwhile Dec 24 2013
By George Goldberg - Published on
Roth is an excellent interview subject. He seems forthcoming and honest and is naturally well-spoken. Commentary by various people who knew him is kind of interesting but too broken up and some of it is over the top, flattery that would make Shakespeare blush. Take some of the hagiography with a grain, well a kilo, of salt and the rest is definitely worthwhile.
Roth is and nothing else matters Sept. 4 2015
By Charles JR Moss - Published on
Greatness so subtle, as in the quiet world surrounding this immense writer. The simplicity of working, moving forward, having something to say...such a gift, not to be ignored. Roth is and nothing else matters.
