Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Format: Paperback
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.
