The notorious tabloid photographer finally gets his due.
Mr. Galella emerges as a kindred soul for the curious documentarian and as a large, complicated personality in his own right.
Aside from some overly jaunty soundtrack music, Smash His Camera assembles Galella's anecdotes smartly, and supports them well visually.
Gast's film takes off only when it recounts past conquests and grudges.
Leon Gast's documentary portrait has a freewheeling charm that perfectly matches its subject.
[An] entertaining docu by When We Were Kings' Leon Gast.
Smash His Camera is a treasure trove for old Hollywood obsessives.
Ultimately, Galella's work is more interesting than the man behind the camera.
An entertaining and thought provoking film with more celebrity pictures, and interviews, than you can shake a stick at.
A paparazzo's life, replete with flashbulbs and sucker punches, says much about the nature of celebrity and our fascination with it.
It's an irresistible, illuminating documentary on a subject once thought glamorous, but now often resembles madness.
[Leon] Gast seems to have waded into this subject without much of a road map, and left it to [Ron] Galella to show him the way
Very interesting. An amazing look at a paparazzi photo journalist who has been reviled, and scorned, throughout his career - justifiably by some accounts. He, however, has taken some of the most unbelievable photos ever. He has held exhibitions, and even has a coffee table book of his photos that I might consider purchasing, thanks to this documentary.
Fairly interesting documentary about a really interesting guy. The first famous paparazzi.
We've seen most of this discussion on balancing the first amendment and privacy rights before, but in the final ten minutes where we see a number of young people confused as to who all these older celebrities are in Galella's photographs we realize that how fleeting accomplishment is.
One of the first well known paparazzi. This guy is a real pro at invading people's privacy. Should have been called 'Life of a professional stalker'.
