Since Sundance ended over the weekend, there have been two more prominent reviews of Traces of the Trade.

Kirk Honeycutt of the Hollywood Reporter, in his wrapup of Sundance films, called Traces “a profound film” which “hit a raw nerve with audiences.” He proceeded to suggest that “this film very much needs to play at more festivals.”

Honeycutt also described the powerful and provocative new film by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Elvis Mitchell, The Black List, as an “interesting companion piece” to Traces of the Trade. (The two films were also linked at Sundance, as Elvis hosted an engaging and wide-ranging panel, “Black in America,” on which Traces producer/director Katrina Browne appeared.)

Meanwhile, Scott Foundas of the Village Voice, in his review of the Sundance lineup yesterday, observed that Traces “contains some of the most extraordinary moments I witnessed onscreen at Sundance this year.”
