"McCullin" is not a groundbreaking documentary, but it wears its conventional format well, taking its cues (and its power) from the photographs themselves.
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.
What a man.
McCullin, who was nearly seventy-five when the documentary was shot, is an extraordinary narrator of his life and work.
Mixes recent interviews with McCullin with contemporaneous news footage and McCullin's own photographs, which have lost none of their power.
Don't miss this fine film.
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.
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.
