5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves a BAFTA, 2 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: McCullin [DVD] (DVD)
I recall reading Don McCullin's autobiography, Unreasonable Behaviour and feeling so taken in by the book that I actually wrote to him to say that I hope that he could lay his demons to rest. Watching this film bought all those emotions back again and it seems that Don McCullins demons are still their and he feels as shocked and apprehensive about War and being there as he ever did.

Now, don't think this is a depressing documentary. It isn't. If anything its uplifting and inspirational. I just want to go out there and take more images on my camera. This film does that for you. I don't mean I want to shoot war and Don McCullin didn't and does just do war. he photographs landscapes, street photography and also has had a recent book about ancient Rome.

The documentary has depth. It is 1 hour 30 minutes long and for me that just wasn't long enough. However there is approximately another 30 minutes of scenes not used and these should be watched as they also help the documentary and you get a better feel for Don McCullin.

This will be a keeper for me and look forward to watching it with my other DVD on Cartier-BBression, Ansel Adams, Annie Liebowitz an Paul Strand. Don McCullin deserves to be added to that majestic role call.
