Movie Info

'Family Portraits' collects Buck's three short films ('Cutting Moments,' 'Home,' and 'Prologue') to present the iconic American family struggling to survive amidst hollow religious practices, alienation, and threats of explosive violence. Buck's characters operate in relationship to their paralyzing environments, providing an unwavering, unsentimental stare at human disconnection.

Audience Reviews for Family Portraits: A Trilogy of America

  • Aug 02, 2008
    Essentially three short films shot between 1996 and 2002 and presented with two different viewing options. The films can be watched as separate shorts or as part of one long three-part feature, and it really all depends on your ability to endure the grotesque brilliance that Buck captures. Unexpected and brutal ugliness is the theme in Buck's vision of suburbia in that everything is fucked up behind closed doors. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=13FAMI_390.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/13FAMI_390.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    This is not your run of the mill film, that's for sure! "Family Portraits" did an amazing job of creating an aura of tension & uneasiness throughout its entirety. I love movies that effectively create a mood like that. Albeit a most uncomfortable one. Highly recommended. But. This one is not for the weak of heart.
