Critic Reviews for Chuck Close: A Portrait in Progress
[Director Marion] Cajori's inventive, endlessly fascinating two-hour take draws freely from those prior studies, and from footage featuring Close and his contemporaries.
Although the painting montages become somewhat burdensome in their repetition, and an epilogue feels academic in every sense, when Cajori finally pulls away from the finished portrait, the sense of a job done to brimming satisfaction is acutely twofold.
The result is a portrait that should interest art-savvy viewers and neophytes alike.
Chuck Close, about the painter, photographer and printmaker by the documentary filmmaker Marion Cajori, truly excels in its depiction of the physical process of making art.
Late director Marion Cajori's documentary takes good advantage of intimate access to the iconic artist in an effort to chronicle the fascinating methodology behind his work.
