Critic Reviews

  1. 83
    Yhough Obscene tells the story without fully exploring its nuances, that story is both fascinating and more than a little inspiring.
  2. Engrossing documentary about the life and times of publisher Barney Rosset, who spent much of his career advancing the cause of free expression, is a flawless match of style and subject.
  3. Reviewed by: Alissa Simon
    The case for publisher Barney Rosset's place as a hero in post-war America's battle for freedom of expression is persuasively argued in Obscene.
  4. A warm, entertaining compendium of counterculture voices and literary landmarks.
  5. As vital, incisive and entertaining as its subject.
