Movie Reviews

Ansel Adams - American Treasure
S. LAMONTAGNE | Eastern Pennsylvania | 02/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this program on PBS .. it was breath taking; this documentary reveals an interesting chronology of the life of the man along with the growth and development of his genius. It is not a technical critique of his works. Rather, it takes the viewer on a beautiful photographic journey through his life and gives one a appreciation of our American heritage and the precious beauty of our country."
A very beautiful bio
Meph Jones | Los Angeles, CA USA | 04/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was in a hotel in Berkeley one night and just happened to watch this before going to bed. I've heard of Ansel Adams, and seen some of his work on people's walls, but never really knew anything about him. This documentary really draws you in-- a very fine cinematic work in and of itself. Beautiful is a word that describes it best for me. I'm glad it's available on DVD."
Another Ric Burns classic
kkrome25 | California, USA | 10/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary is typical of Ric Burns. It's inspirational both visually and mentally; a very humanistic look into who Ansel Adams was as a child, a man, a husband, pianist, and photographer. This is something that should be watched at least once, by photography students and photographers as a whole. I'm sure it won't be viewed just once. The wonderful accounts, spectacular cinematography, and of course, a look at some of the Grand Master's classic photographs round out this finely crafted documentary worthy of Ansel Adams."
Beautiful Documentary

"A beautiful documentary telling the story of Ansel Adams life, while also illuminating the history and meaning of photography and the importance of art in our lives"
