McCullin Photos

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 shooting with a respect for image now disappearing from the digital age; and we have shot our film on 16mm in order to compliment his work.

Critic Reviews for McCullin

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (18)

  • "McCullin" is not a groundbreaking documentary, but it wears its conventional format well, taking its cues (and its power) from the photographs themselves.

    October 29, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Famous for his war photography, McCullin's gift is his sensitivity, a capacity to feel the pain of other people that informs both the images he produced and the ones he refused to take.

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

    January 4, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This is searing, insightful, deeply upsetting stuff.

    January 3, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What a man.

Audience Reviews for McCullin

  • Jan 04, 2013
    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.
