Smash His Camera Reviews
People in his camp are a bit delusional in regard to Ms Onasis. Making statements implying that the interaction with Ron was in fact a relationship through the lens.
jackie made it very clear she didn't appreciate Ron's. He even says he didn't have a girlfriend at the time, so Jackie was kind of like his girlfriend. NO, she was the subject of you photograph.
Friends of Ron's talked about how Ron cared for Jackie & her children & wouldn't ever harm them.
To Jackie Ron is a stranger, following her, photographing her & her children.
There's also criticism from a real blowhard forget his name and a photographer from Sport Illustrated, who agrees that Ron's pictures capture great moments, but argues that the appeal is the subject, and it doesn't make any difference who photographed Liz Taylor.
I'm sure this guy would want credit for all the pictures he's taken of famous athletes.
I bet he considers many of the images art.
It's about Ron Galella. Apparently, he's one of the most famous paparazzos working, although I have to admit I had never heard of him. I would have been curious to get inside his head. What's it like to be someone that I think is safe to call annoying, if that's even saying much. Smash His Camera looks that way some of the time, but most of the time is spent explaining how Galella took his most famous pictures, or the history of paparazzi.
Those things are not all that interesting to me. It just makes him look like a stalker.
There are some things that were pretty cool, however. It is pretty fascinating to see how seriously he takes his job. I don't think Galella does it because he needs to make money. Taking pictures of celebrities while hiding behind a bush seems like his passion. But even that only makes him look stranger to us.
Perhaps this guy is just weird, but I would have liked to have learned a little more about him to officially make that decision. Unfortunately, this movie does not offer us that information
Today we all see those photo hounds who chase celebrities everywhere. They look like hacks as they feed the desire of some to see everything their favorite celeb is doing.
"Smash His Camera" takes a look back at one of the first people who stalked the famous for candid photos. His name is Ron Galella. He comes across as a fairly likeable guy, but he harassed poor Jackie O. constantly and was even punched out by Marlon Brando.
I like that the film allows the debate as to whether Galella was a genius with his lens or just a pathetic hack who preyed on the famous. As repulsive as some of his methods are, I couldn't help but he interested in many of the pictures he took.
