Movie Info

The made-for-cinema documentary shows how Don McCullin created some of the latter twentieth-century's most iconic images of man's inhumanity to man. Working at a critical time in global photojournalism, he witnessed the change of ethos to publishing and editorial freedom for newspapers to print what they wanted, free from constraints of advertisers. He brought the impact and reality of human conflict to the general reader, going on war assignments sometimes with only twenty rolls of film.He was

Mixes recent interviews with McCullin with contemporaneous news footage and McCullin's own photographs, which have lost none of their power.

He added lustre to a profession which, before him, was considered more of a craft than an art.

As much a look back on the wars of the 1960s and 1970s as it is a biography.

Here's a man who has witnessed what he terms "the price of humanity": his pictures and this compelling documentary are eloquent testimony to the darkness and light inherent in those words.

This is searing, insightful, deeply upsetting stuff.

Jacqui Morris and David Morris's documentary is a labour of love with both words operative. Lots of love lavished on McCullin's craft and courage.

His recollections are as sobering as his images, and a great many of both will embed themselves in your head.

A terrific and fitting tribute to one of modern history's greatest eyewitnesses.

He speaks very powerfully of the dilemmas he has faced and the decisions required to maintain some sense of integrity in his work.

McCullin emerges as an unsentimental, plain-speaking, thoughtful man, disgusted at the inhumanity of war - and yet candid about how he is also personally and professionally drawn to its drama.

December 28, 2012 Full Review Source: Guardian

This is pretty straight up documentary making but for fans of McCullin and those interested in photography in general, it's recommended viewing.

A sobering primer in the hard-hitting photojournalism of the '60s and '70s.

Audience Reviews for McCullin

A shockingly honest testimony of the successful war photographer Don McCullin. You may not know who he is but the chances are you will have seen one of his photos. This is a raw and sometimes disturbing exploration of a man doing a very strange but important job. Don McCullin doesn't come across as you'd might expect from a contemporary photographer, he is far from pretentious about his work and he is admirably honest about himself and some of the things he's seen and done. It is part history lesson, part media study and part social and human studies. It is a compelling film from beginning to end and very much recommended.

Super Reviewer

Absorbing and genuinely jolting documentary about acclaimed photojournalist Don McCullin, whose work - particularly in images of war and genocide - is explored in fascinating context, politically and socially.
