  • What might get lost in subsequent accounts could be this picture's most interesting quality: it's questioning of war photographers' own live-fast-die-young, self-mythologising tendencies.

  • There's only so long that anyone can live the sort of life Jason lived before they burn out and the documentary is a fascinating insight in one man's mindset.

  • Like all previous films about this line of work, it describes the mix of heroism and selfish thrill-seeking that leads people into the job.

    Jun 19, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • We get to-camera footage from Howe himself, plus sympathetic testimony from his colleagues. Vivid and moving.
