Annie Leibovitz: Life Through A Lens Review

Image for Annie Leibovitz: Life Through A Lens

Documentary about the life of the legendary photographer.

★★★★

This documentary on the legendary photographer is probing and insightful, with a rolling slideshow of her photos providing stunning reminders that, sometimes, reputations are justified.

Archive footage and interviews demonstrate the respect Leibovitz has garnered, but the film, directed by her sister, also gives an intimate view of both working method and Leibovitz herself.

Those seeking revelations about her relationship with Susan Sontag won’t get any gory details, but Leibovitz’s obvious devastation while remembering Sontag’s death is almost invasively personal after an hour of amiability.

An intimate view of both the life and working methods of an icon.
