Critic Reviews for Finding Eléazar: Portrait of a Tenor and a Role

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (6)

  • A promotional video masquerading as a documentary.

    October 28, 2005
  • Because his self-conscious musings are given so much space, it helps to arrive at the movie already awed by Shicoff's talents so you can overlook his (and this dramatically unfocused film's) flaws.

  • To observe the tenor Neil Shicoff's thrilling performance of the final aria from Fromental Halevy's 1835 opera 'La Juive' ('The Jewess') at the Vienna State Opera is to watch a singing actor shoot the moon.

  • Will be of keen interest to fans but plays to the unwashed as cringingly pompous.

  • Only true opera diehards will appreciate the backstage psychodrama, a catalog aria of the singer's multiple neuroses.

  • A certain obviousness of tone creeps into the film at moments. This obviousness unfortunately overwhelms her cinematic climax.

  • [Fisher's] heavy-handed montage of war, civil rights demonstrations... is so amateurish it very nearly succeeds in trivializing the power of [Shicoff's] performance.
