La guerra desde el punto de vista de los que la pelean y como eso los hace unirse mas.

This film not only showcases the most important parts of Tim's work, but it's a deeply understood documentary with incredibly emotional interviews from close ones about why Tim was one of the best photojournalists ever. He wasn't there to show the world moral outrage, he covered the intimate connections between humans never seen by the world in any other photography or media. The documentary, for 77 minutes, is an entirely perfect portrayal on his personality and discusses how his work was understood differently by different people.

Fantastic portrait of a photographer caught in the midst of war.

Another top notch documentary from Sebastian Junger on a truly inspirational man.
January 10, 2014
Well made and succinct documentary about the life of this war photo journalist. Over sentimental and a case of film maker too close to the subject matter somewhat trivialised the subject.
½ January 9, 2014
Beautiful and tragic, an excellent film.

"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.

Excellent documentary about Tim Hetherington, war and photography.

Excellent look into the life and untimely death of the photo journalist, Tim Hetherington.

If you have HBO, I recommend you watch it. If not I imagine it will be floating around Netflix or Amazon in the coming months.
