Movie Reviews

Ode to an artist
Reader | Boca Raton, FL | 12/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Annie Leibovitz's sister has created a memorable documentary honoring the life's work of her older sister. We learn about Ms. Leibovitz's early beginings in photography when she started her career at the "Rolling Stones" magazine. Her evolution from rock and roll photographer to a photographer of portraits and later on fashion (when she moved to "Vanity Fair" magazine). Documentary is also an honest look and her personal life: her relationship with Susan Sontag, her parents and siblings, her three daughters. For anyone interested in photography as a visual form of art this movie is a real treasure."
Behind the Lens Insight

"I found this a thoughtful documentary into the evolution of a photographer best known in the realm of pop culture.

It touches upon the journey that evolved around Annie and how she came to shape the road of her own destiny.

Very much worth a viewing."
Fantastic insight into Leibovitz's work and process
N. Turchin | Hampton, VA United States | 12/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a photographer and fan of Annie Leibovitz I was excited to find this documentary. It was just as I'd hoped. It included most of her most popular and famous images, and gave insight into her process and the road she has taken in her career. It's an interesting companion to her latest book. I watched the documentary, then received her book and felt almost like in the book she gets a little bit of revenge for the candid discussions given by her colleagues and subjects in this documentary!

It's well edited and a great treat for any Leibovitz fan."
LIFE THROUGH A LENS
Mariano Films | Bridgewater, NJ USA | 03/05/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As an educator and filmmaker I enjoyed this inspiring, revealing, and beautiful portrayal of photography, and what it means to the world, through the eyes of one of the greatest female photographers of the late twentieth century. It speaks volumes about our culture and our emotions as a society represented through this art form and the importance of capturing the imagery of our humanity."
