      Audience Member A really nicely put together documentary looking at the works of Anton Corbijn. Corbijn is the dutch photographer that provided the unique monochromatic vision to many portraits, album covers and music videos for acts such as U2, Nirvana, The Killers, Johnny Cash and Depeche Mode. The doc was produced at the time when Corbijn was directed the Joy Divison biopic Control which won at least 10 major film awards. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member A must if you love photography. A must if you love the images behind all the iconic images of U2, Depeche Mode. To hear Anton speak his thoughts about his photography, his apprehensions on making music videos and his first movie, the knock-backs he received is fabulous. As he said, he is not educated in photography - he just knows what he wants and his relationship with music led his path. Photographers like Anton make me a believer that honest photography will always stand out in this day and age of photoshop and digital. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Fine filmen om fine fotograf mannen! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member An interesting overview of the photography and directing career of Anton Corbijn, best known for his high-contrast black and white masterpieces with some of the world's biggest rock stars as his subjects. Corbijn and his colleagues often come off a tad pretentious, taking themselves a little too seriously, but the work stands for itself.
