Time Out New York
McElwee's quietly reassuring voice dominates the film, but that doesn't mean he can't craft a magnificently eloquent image when he wants to, as in the moment when he frames Adrian, seated in a coffee shop, inside his own reflection in the shop's front window. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
The resulting journey of self-discovery is not exactly profound in its revelations, but as usual with McElwee's efforts the proceedings are enlivened by his droll, witty narration, delivered in a sonorous tone. Full Review
Ian Buckwalter
NPR
For all its obsession with the past, Photographic Memory ends in a simple, genuinely moving interaction between father and son that illustrates McElwee's discovery that memories are nice, but can't be touched and embraced as we can the present. Full Review

Slant Magazine
Ross McElwee is less anxious of death itself than of finally comprehending the vast faultiness of the life he's lived. Full Review

Utterly delightful. Full Review
