The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography offers an intriguing glimpse at a distinctive artist's work that's as warmly engaging as its subject.

Dorfman ... makes for a lively and loquacious subject ...
A fine-grained (no photography pun intended) look at the way that the development of an artist's style is usually intertwined with the technology and materials that she chooses to embrace.
Clocking in at a trim 76 minutes, The B-side is as warmly affectionate as its subject, a close friend and neighbor of the director.
[An] enjoyable but also profound movie.
You can almost sense Morris smiling off-camera as she pulls each exposure from her file drawers for reminiscing and newfound scrutiny - that's how strong and warm his admiration is for Dorfman and the humble richness of her work.
Endearing and significant.
Touching on the importance of friends and family, the temporality of memories, and the photographic process itself, this is a surprisingly light, but sure footed ode to a fellow image maker.
Although "The B-Side" is mildly mournful as Dorfman confronts her impending retirement, forced onto her by the death of the Polaroid film she uses, it is a celebration of the ability to freeze time and the pleasure of looking back.
The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography is a minor work by Errol Morris, but it's still the work of a master filmmaker.
Elsa Dorfman's work is ephemeral yet grand: using a giant 20" x 24" camera, that is now discontinued, Dorfman has produced some of the world's largest Polaroid images, showing that unwieldy technology does not need to be limiting when used imaginatively.
A warm-hearted documentary about a down-to-earth photographer who used Polaroids to shoot her portraits.
Dorfman talks like a philosopher at times, but never seems to take herself, or anything else, very seriously, except for the death of film. She talks about the loss of film and all the wonderful machinery thrown away when Polaroid went bankrupt.
