    Just marginally a documentary, Chronicling a Crisis turns out to be one of Amos Kollek's more affecting films.

    As that description suggests, the film winds up a rather grim, often indulgent muddle. But it's also undeniably compelling.

    Alternately tedious and illuminating, this deeply honest and scattered movie revels in its lack of purpose.

    The result, Chronicling a Crisis, is an admittedly harrowing exercise in solipsism that will be of little interest to anyone besides the director's diehard fans and perhaps his therapist.

    At once downbeat and claustrophobic, it's also often grueling to watch.

    There's little reason to see the claustrophobic Chronicling a Crisis unless you have a fascination with the Kolleks. Watching the vanity project is like being forced to sit through a friend's boring home movies.
