A Cinephiles Delight The Hollywood Reporter
Its clear five minutes into Saving Brinton that the line between hoarder and preservationist really is fine. Its also clear that you need sensitive, humane filmmaking to insist that one is very different from the other. The average documentary would gawk. This one reclassifies: One persons pack rat is anothers collector. And Michael Zahs, this movies sturdily built, mighty bearded subject, does indeed collect. The New York Times
