      Audience Member Great movie! I think I might have to buy this one or at least add it to my wishlist. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member This documentary truly captures the beauty of Sally Mann's work, family, and life. It is, itself, a piece of art. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member The thing that truly makes her a great artist is the fact that she knows and admits she has flawed, at times, many a times. She even goes on to say that some of her greatest works are a result of nature's misdemeanors. "I am so afraid that m going to perfect this art one day. I pray for the angel of uncertainty to visit my plates." - Sally Mann A truly great documentary capturing the life of a great person without making it too dramatic. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member We enter the life of the controversial artist Sally Mann. Her unorthodox photographs of dead people and her own naked children and family are getting a story and a meaning through this documentary. She takes great pictures with her old fashioned and demanding camera - an atmosphere and depht digital cameras never can capture. Ok documentary that is well presented but it get a bit boring and dragged out. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member <a></a> <img src="" width="240" border="0" /> Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Inspirational. The generous vulnerability with which Sally Mann shares her life and heart is so organic and genuine -- both in her art and in the interviews of this documentary. As a mother/artist trying to find balance in a world full of compartmentalization, I so appreciate Sally Mann's philosophy of art: "...unless you photograph what you love, you are not going to make good's always been my philosophy to try to make art out of the everyday and ordinary--it never occurred to me to leave home to make art." The often-photographed children of this sometimes controversial artist are also interviewed, bearing testimony to the effects of such a unique upbringing. In one particular segment, a window into the torment that even an established, revered artist can experience in the face of rejection was opened and presented with gentle honesty, a robust--yet fragile--heart. Warning: Nudity Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
