The tone is generally celebratory and, given Morrison's extraordinary impact on American letters, deservedly so.

[I]n "Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am," Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' outstanding documentary, [Morrison] tells stories, right to the camera, about herself and her life and her work, and it's magical.

Though the documentary is conventionally structured, it still stands tall as a valuable record of the life and times and work of an American treasure.

If the film is both linear... and plainly adoring, it also gives you ample reason for that adoration. You certainly end up admiring Toni Morrison, but also aching to know a bit more about her.
