Critic Reviews for Which Way Is the Front Line From Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington

  • His desire to understand conflict, his gnawing away at the question of what young men get out of violence, sets our own brain whirring.

    October 11, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • With its conventional archive-plus-talking-heads format, this film is less radical than , but Junger articulates a number of subtle and unexpected ideas about Hetherington's work, and about combat reporting in general.

    October 10, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • One imagines the charismatic Hetherington, once met, would be unforgettable: Junger's film is a decent, heartfelt tribute.

    October 10, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A stirring lament for the late, great photojournalist and some-time film director who was killed in action.

    October 10, 2013 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • There is plenty of footage of Hetherington. So much, you wonder if he wanted to leave a part of himself behind should the worst come to the worst.

    October 8, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Unsurprisingly, considering the circumstances, this is less a meticulous study of photojournalist's art than an privileged and emotional look at the life of a friend and colleague.

Audience Reviews for Which Way Is the Front Line From Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington

  • Apr 28, 2013
    "Which Way is the Front Line from Here?" is a heartbreaking documentary about the life and work of photojournalist Tim Hetherington who was killed covering the recent civil war in Libya. His story is told not only by those who knew him, but mostly in his own words and pictures. The film's highlights come from Hetherington's covering of the fighting in Liberia which not only establishes the pattern of his work but also shines a light on a human rights tragedy. By comparison, the material concerning the documentary "Restrepo" he made with Sebastian Junger(who also directs "Which Way is the Front Line from Here?") lacks the same impact, mostly due to its familiarity and because some of it feels like basic behind the scenes footage on the surface. To his credit, Junger also uses that as a springboard to explore more general themes of the unpredictability of war and camaraderie which is expressed perfectly in an unforgettable quote about soldiers having to watch their friends die. Another way of looking at it is that none of us wants to be alone while there is always the danger of peer pressure.
