I really enjoyed reading this book. It gave me a further look into a movie I have enjoyed throughout the years. I have been a fan of Karen Carpenter since 1971 and found the movie to be an interesting yet positive look at her life and career. The book helped to answer some questions I had concerning it's making and the banning of the movie. I felt it was wrong for Richard Carpenter to ban the movie, but at the same point Todd Haynes did not have the rights to use the music. Although, I get the feeling Richard Carpenter wanted this movie banned because it hit on the truth and showed him in a somewhat negative manner.

I have been a fan of SUPERSTAR: THE KAREN CARPENTER STORY ever since first seeing it on a bootleg VHS eight or nine years ago. I even got to watch the film in a crowded indie theater at an invitation only screening. The author does a great job of describing exactly what it is about Todd Haynes film that is so captivating. If you are a fan of the Todd Haynes film and are looking for more insight into its creation, distribution, and meaning than I recommend this book.

I found this book to be quite informative on the making and symbolism of this fantastic cult film. It gave me more understanding on the movie.

I have enjoyed watching this movie over 20 times now and see something different each time.

I am still waiting and hoping for it's official re-release.

This book is definitely worth it! You are given the insights on the inspiration, making, and bootlegging of the film and all your questions will be answered with how it was done and all of the blurry clips recorded with the cameras on some scenes.
