Reviews & Press



“Outstanding... An information revolutionary, Stokes, despite her decades of isolation, touched the nerve center of the times.” - Best Films of 2019,  New Yorker

“Weirdly exhilarating... Enlightening and the stuff of madness." Critic’s Pick - New York Times

“The Information Age has found a startling, eccentric heroine in the subject of Matt Wolf’s eye-opening documentary.” - LA Times

“Matt Wolf’s remarkable Recorder uses Stokes’ recording obsession as a way to explore both Stokes herself and the world she literally committed to video tape. The results are fascinating, weird, and often quite moving.” - Indiewire

“Intriguing from first minute to last... Relating this stranger-than-fiction tale with the narrative twists and turns of a well-paced thriller, Recorder will make news junkies feel a lot better about themselves.” - Hollywood Reporter

“Utterly compelling and beautifully textured… A thrilling portrait of a woman collecting the history of the world as she lived through it through the very media we all engaged with, this is a powerful and truly important documentary feature.” - CriterionCast

Recorder quietly seeds damning observations about the ways media narratives are formed, and how the shapers of these narratives distort the truth and our worldview.” - Flixist

“Marion’s life makes for a pensive, complicated romantic tragedy.” - Nonfics
