Critic Reviews for Chasing Portraits

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (1)

  • Still [Rynecki] effectively captures a raft of emotional beats, especially those involving her kindly, Holocaust-survivor dad, who prefers to keep his dark childhood at arm's length.

  • I felt a strong connection to the director's desire to bond with her ancestors through art.

    April 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Too often coming across as an elaborate home movie, Chasing Portraits would have benefited from its story being told by a more experienced filmmaker who was less emotionally involved in the proceedings.

    April 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "Chasing Portraits" is small and subtle, with some missed opportunities and occasionally inexpert filmmaking. But it's not an insignificant effort, and Ms. Rynecki's cause is admirable.

  • Its major contribution, as one museum curator suggests, may be to bring the works of Moshe Rynecki back into prominence.
