Award-winning Director Amos Kollek takes a penetrating look in the mirror, at the addiction that is filmmaking, after the failure of his film Happy End. He chronicles his family from 2004 to the present, especially his conflicted relationship with his father, the mythical mayor of Jerusalem. Intertwined with Amos's story is the story of Robin, a NY prostitute who Amos meets on his quest to fund his next film. Both struggle with their highs and lows trying to find some harmony to help them proceed to the future. -- (C) Quad Cinema

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's little reason to see the claustrophobic "Chronicling a Crisis" unless you have a fascination with the Kolleks."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"At once downbeat and claustrophobic, it's also often grueling to watch."
‑ Benjamin Mercer, Village Voice
"We are left with a naked portrait of successful self-analysis, of a man reaching backward for the strength to move forward."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Unflinchingly honest and emotionally devastating."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"The final scene from "Sue," Kollek's best film, has troubled me for 15 years. There are images here that come close to matching that movie's haunting tragedy."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Indie director Amos Kollek's hall-of-mirrors movie capturing his frustration at his inability to make another film is as self-referential and limited as you would expect, though refreshingly honest for all its solipsism."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Film Journal International
