A Pixel Surgeon review says, "this an important collection, and an essential must-have item for any film lover. You really have no right to call yourself a cineaste if this DVD isn't gracing your shelves."[3]

An Eye for Film review says, "The standard of work is very high and this collection is a must for film buffs everywhere."[4]

A Digitally Obsessed review says, "A necessarily varied lot, and a good overview of American filmmaking on a small scale. The commentary tracks are particularly astute, as well."[5]
