NFR Overview with Benefits
Reviewed in the United States on August 29, 2017
This movie is actually about the founding, rationale and structure of The National Film Registry, which preserves and archives films it deems worthy. I actually enjoyed much of this film and showed it to my Intro to Film students on the first day of class. It was my hope that it would give them a sense of film as an industry, an art form and a way of archiving history. A few of the students seemed bored because it runs about an hour and a half and could benefit by some more editing, but most seemed to enjoy the snippets of "classic" films and there was some lively discussion afterwards.
