Absorbing portrait of great photographer

  • Summary: Magnificent biography of the photographer Don McCullin, from his early days as a North London tearaway to various assignments photographing wars in Biafra, Cyprus, Vietnam, Lebanon and elsewhere. The pictures more or less speak for themselves but McCullin's matter of fact description of when and how he took them is even better. And the good news is that McCullin, who now lives in Somerset, is busy organising his massive archive of pics.

What a guy

Jgeordio, LOVEFiLM
24 October 2013
  • Summary: Straightforward and revealing interview with this most brilliant war photographer, complete with his tough youthful history in post-war London, his best work and sometimes chilling background war footage.. A clearly compassionate man much effected by the sickening horrors of war but always striving to be the photographer closest to the action. His biggest disappointment was to have been deemed persona non grata in the Falklands, by the British Government (Why on earth).

Spellbinding documentary

Glastafarian, LOVEFiLM

  • Summary: Excellent documentary about photojournalist Don McCullin. Newsreels of Vietnam, Biafra, Lebanon, Cyprus, etc introduce his black and white photos that so brilliantly showed the impact of war. A reflective McCullin explains the dilemmas of the job, and his thoughts emphasise the integrity and humanitarian approach that characterise his work.
