5.0 out of 5 stars Ode to an artist Dec 1 2008
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic insight into Leibovitz's work and process Dec 26 2008
By N. Turchin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Behind the Lens Insight Nov. 16 2008
By Damian P. Gadal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Feb. 9 2012
By Daniel G. Lebryk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It seems like we all know Annie Leibovitz, we've seen her photographs everywhere, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Vogue, seemingly everywhere. This film is a wonderful documentary that shows an unknown side of this famous photographer.

This is a simply made, elegant film. It feels a lot like we simply spent an hour and twenty-seven minutes listening to her recount her life. The film rolls full circle, from her early days taking pictures of her family, through the incredible luck getting a job at Rolling Stone during it's first years of publication, through the diva-like celebrity photographs, back to her love of photographing her family. The film ends where her latest book starts, Pilgrimage, (Pilgrimage) a book of family trip photographs. It is remarkable that a film from 2008 would predict the wonderful current work.

I didn't know a lot about Annie Leibovitz, but yet I knew a lot. We all know a lot about her - at least through the thousands of photographs she has published. Barbara Leibovitz, Annie's sister, does a remarkable job directing this film. Much like her photographs, the film is a little bit posed and a little bit raw. The film was edited very carefully, and does present Annie in the best possible light. The film was delicate about the Rolling Stones tour and her drug use during the early years of her career at Rolling Stone Magazine.

The core film was originally aired on PBS, so the film is PG. The DVD includes a massive set of bonus features - slightly more raw, somewhat uncut, interviews with many of the subjects of the film. There appears to be a bit more honesty in these interviews. Sadly, the bonus features get really long in the tooth. The film is gem of the DVD.

I am a photographer. This is an inspirational film. I was struck by her comment that she had to study dance photographs to understand how to photograph dance. I've had to learn how to photograph different sports, each time it takes me time to understand the flow of the game, the best angles to capture the right moment, where to stand, how to move, which lenses to use, and what is the best light. Football is completely different from baseball or golf. I never realized that photographing people is exactly the same work. She learned how to photograph rock stars - she lived the life and captured the moments. But as she moved to posed photography, Vanity Fair, she had to learn a whole new world. The work required is completely different. I was also struck by her big moment meeting a photo editor. I was so happy to hear that she struggles with editing her own work.

This is a beautiful film that places Annie in a favorable light. The film shows some of the most iconic photographs ever, John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Patti Smith, and Hillary Rodham Clinton. I enjoyed this film very much.

The core film is about the right length at an hour twenty-seven minutes. The bonus features are talking head commentary: Photo Series (30 minutes); Process (5 minutes); Commercial Work (5 minutes); Celebrity (6 minutes); Work Ethic (7 minutes); and Fashion (2 minutes).

5.0 out of 5 stars From The Fly on the Wall to the Super Star on the Flying Trapeze March 15 2009
By James R. Holland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Annie has gone from being a fly on the wallpaper to being a Super Star on the Flying Trapeze in a Three Ring Circus. She's began as a photographer in the manner of Robert Frank and Henri Carier Bresson and then moved into the "Vanity Fair" and "Vogue" World of NYC photography with the huge in-town studio and country converted water mill home in Conn. She went from the seeming invisible maker of candid photographs to Cecil B. DeMille Hollywood productions. She was soon working with dozens of assistants, set builders, art directors, grips, teamsters, hairdressers, cranes, helicopters, the Nittany Lions Marching Band, etc., etc. She managed to maintain her ability to make good pictures despite this complete change in work style and still enjoys capturing images as a loner as well as the Glitzy Celebrity Portrait Shoots. For a woman who more of less stumbled accidentally into the world of photography and popular music she has certainly found her secret talent.
This DVD is a very well done portrait of Annie Leibovitz and her life in photography. It includes pictures and home movies of her early life as one of six children of an Air Force Officer. While their father was fighting in the Vietnam War, the six kids were marching and protesting against that same war. This is the tale of a 1960's war protestor gone mainstream. In many ways, it's the story of the entire baby boom generation. It's wonderful to see a success story that is the result of talent, hard work and totally without inside contacts. Annie went to work for "Rolling Stone" as the magazine was being born and then grew up with it. Annie is one-of-a-kind, but that fact hasn't gone to her head.
