Movie Info

An outsider with attitude, Show Me The Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall chronicles the infamous photographer's life behind and outside the camera. A child of immigrants and a life battling inner demons, Jim fought his way to become one of the most trusted mavericks behind a lens throughout 60's history. A passion for music led him to capture some of the most iconic figures in music history from Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, to the infamous image of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar. It was his abrasive but honest approach to his subjects combined with incredible skill to build trust that expanded his portfolio beyond celebrities, documenting history across the ages.

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (1)

  • There is a poignant irony about a man attuned to the emotions of his subjects but not necessarily his own.

    January 31, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The illuminating discussion that springs from close friends, lovers and collaborators and even Marshall himself in some archive material, makes the trip worth it.

    January 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Fascinating character study also offers insights into how the best candid portraits of musicians happen.

    March 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "Show Me the Picture" rarely takes us inside the thrill (or challenge) of what Marshall experienced as a photographer, or parses his technique, or explores why he was drawn to the rock scene in the first place.

    March 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Director Alfred George Bailey gathers testimony from friends, ex-lovers, colleagues and professional admirers... but it's the pictures themselves that make this worth seeking out.

    February 21, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • We may not like Marshall's persona much, but in the end, the pictures tell the story.
