    Launching was a bit quirky

    Great app but getting started was a bit quirky. I chose access through my local library. The app had difficulty verifying my valid library card. With some help from the library, I got through that then had trouble logging in and verifying account details. Once I navigated through those troubled waters, the environment on the other side is spectacular. Titles are well organized and rich with both education and entertainment. There are some limitations but flexibility is very good. Streaming through my Apple TV (and other devices too) brings the movies and lectures to the big TV. The app seems stable with no bugs that I can tell. Navigation is intuitive. Options are easy. At a cost of $00, I’m not sure I could ask for more.

    Journey’s end

    Saw it three times . Each time it gets to me a little bit more. Direction was fabulous, acting superb. A little hard to understand because I am an American, but that was to be expected had to use close captioning to truly understand it something about first world war is so unnerving and frightening that I never get tired of understanding it or exploring. This was a play, that’s obvious And I wish I had seen the play. But since I haven’t I will make do with the film. I think I loved it but to be honest I’m not sure. Very intelligent film and thank God for that because I haven’t seen a very intelligent film in years. I hope to see more like this with its human guts churning and boiling over to let me know that mankind still exist on this earth

    Kanopy through my library system is my new favorite thing!

    My local library system just got access to Kanopy about a month ago. Earlier this week I discovered The Great Courses there and was told by a librarian that none of these videos count against my 10 for the month! I’ve been wanting access to The Great Courses for about 10 years, but it’s never been in the budget, needless to say I’m very excited. I’ve just started a series about how to outsmart yourself to break bad habits and other brain training ideas. I love it! I also love that the closed captioning holds across all the videos. I’m excited for our next at-home date night to watch one of the 30+ movies I’ve already thrown on my watchlist.

    Wonderful App & Service

    I tell everyone about Kanopy, it’s a wonderful App & service, with classics, indie and international films that you won’t find anywhere else, and all you need is a library card to access 10 viewings per month, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but I find is perfect. A hidden gem is that they provide access to The Great Courses series of lectures, which are amazing, tons of topics, and they don’t count against your 10 viewings per month. They did have a data breach in March of 2019, but it wasn’t a server with personal information (credit cards or home address or password), it was viewing habit data logs, and hopefully they learned a valuable lesson from that.

    As a senior citizen, in a very small town, but there’s not a whole lot to do especially during the winter, it’s nice to have a free service that I can get through my local library to help me through the long days and nights. Today I watch Captain fantastic! It’s a movie that I wanted to see for quite a long time. Instead of having to go and rent it from the library or get it from a local Redbox I got to put it on my pad and watch it at my leisure. No having to use gas. No having to pay four dollars for a soda pop. On top of that I got to be in my pajamas to watch the movie. Kanopy is an absolutely amazing entertainment source for people like me.

    Kanopy Kids is 1st Klass!

    As a children’s librarian, I’m always looking for great resources for parents and their kiddos. With unlimited access to kids movies, short films, S.T.E.M. features, documentaries, and best of all, tons of children’s book adaptations; Kanopy Kids has hit a homerun. High quality entertainment for the entire family that will forge a lifetime of awesome memories. Since they’re living in a digital world anyway, this is an online experience I’m trilled to share with my grandkids. And if your pair the storybook adaptations with the original picture books, you may even stoke the fires of life-long reader. BTW: Don’t forget to check out Mo Willems Knuffle Bunny series, they are amazing!

    Great choice of films, some glitches

    I’ve been using this app for a couple months now. I love the choice of films, although wish the app showed the movies that are “checked out” not just those that haven’t been finished. If I want to see a movie again, there’s no way of knowing if I can still watch it or if it’s going to duck another film credit for the month. Since the latest update, May 5, I keep getting an error every time I start up the app, and then whenever I try to search for sth, Impossible to do any search, can only browse (getting error 503). Please fix it! The search feature worked before.

    Very very moving.

    Just returned from a 2nd visit to Cambodia lured by the temples of Angkor of coarse. My recent trip with OAT took us to the Killing Fields and into villages and to the Tonle Sap But the sadness and poverty in Cambodia from the devastating US bombing, Kmer Rouge, and the legacy of both is palpable. After my first visit on my own Cambodia near Siem Reap was like a beautiful dream with orange hazy dust from dawn til dusk and the temple bells clanging in the distance and beautiful temples from ancient cities rising out of the towering trees and forest. The tuk tuk drivers stay with you all day, rest in their hammocks, and charge you whatever you choose to give. This film really hits home for Cambodia and the world. Very very moving.

    The Best Movie Application Ever!

    We love this wonderful selection of incredible films. 30,000 fantastic titles and growing daily, all free. Using my library credentials I registered on an iPhone. We then connected to our TV via Roku without any problems. Screening films is easy, in high definition, and commercial free. It’s like being loose in a candy store! Hundred of wonderful films of every genre, especially great foreign films which are nearly impossible to find. And it’s free!!!! The biggest problem we have is choosing what we want to watch next. Thank you so much for this application. Apple is a great company to enable us all to access films like this.

    Disappointing so far; unstable app

    Lots of films I want to watch, but so far app has been non-functional. Yesterday I tried to watch something via Chromecast, but not only did the casting not work, the film didn’t play at all, nor did any that I tried. That was on an iPad. I deleted app, reloaded it, and tried again this morning. This time the film started playing (just on iPad, not Chromecast), and it DID play. But when I tried to delete another film from my watchlist, the app froze completely—no navigation at all was possible, though the iPad otherwise was functioning normally. The exact same thing happened when I tried deleting the same film on my iPhone. So Kanopy largely has proven very frustrating so far. I hope its stability can be improved.

    Pleasant Surprise

    This movie was recommended via a podcast about two years ago. Looking at the cover, and the brief description online I initially gave it a pass. This is not a movie to pass up. Titles in the movie are reminiscent of Big Fish. This story of a young boy being bounced around foster homes, an ex con living apart from regular society and the woman who believed in both opens the story. Watching relationships unfold, tragedy happens and the story that continues to unfurl is delightful. Watching is a delightful escapade through a New Zealand I will never see. Deep lessons are taught without preaching about life, loving, greed, innocence and trust.

    Best app ever for thoughtful content!

    I cannot start my day without it. Amazing content all in one place! No censorship, no ads, and content not found anywhere else. The only negative is that once in a while I will use up my library access quota or my universities’ limit access near the end of the semester. Suggestion: for those of us who are Kanopy addicts, it would be useful to have a subscription alternative for when we use up our free usage allocation instead of having to wait until the next month to start fresh! I would gladly pay!

    The true modern library

    I grew up in the '50s when libraries were an intellectual resource that opened minds fortunate enough to be able to access them. It's a wonder how the role of the modern library has evolved. While technology has expanded the access, it has only served to strengthen the library's ability to enhance its fundamental mission. In an era of instant gratification and superficially, these library applications provide a note of optimism that the potential of the internet has been realized by people who care more about minds than commercial opportunities.

    An amazing app for mainstream & indie films and documentaries!

    I got wind of Kanopy early last year through the website of my local library and ever since then, I’ve been so in love with the streaming service. You don’t need to pay for anything, there’s no ads and you gain access to movies & documentary films using your library card. I was introduced to classics like “Tokyo Drifter” and “Stalag 17”, then they added the A24 library and I was able to watch films that I hadn’t previously been able to watch like “The Bling Ring” and “The Disaster Artist”. Indeed, Kanopy is the real deal!

    A Coffee In Berlin

    Drifting at first it seems our lead character is is not at all the loser he seems. a rough draft of who he reveals as this film progresses. His sensitivity to events begin to show who he really is.. All of Jarmusch’s ‘s films show a rebelliousness and gutsy search for self truth and understanding. Two contrasting themes: when he angrily hits the golf ball into a winning put as his father eggs him on , and then the ending scene where he encounters an old man in a bar who he finally makes a connection with and he finally sees who he is and gets a coffee after all.
