Sontag's true talent was for the printed word; behind the camera, her limitations come more harshly to light.

The movie does not advertise its alliances, and Sontag's position is pretty thoroughly hidden in the folds of her imagery.

...a reminder of a time when a noted writer and intellectual was willing to take the risk of working in a medium in which she had no training and minimal experience...

...Sontag was enough of an artist to know that she was present in a crucible-moment, and that if she just pointed her camera in the right direction, history would do the rest.
