Excellent video of a photographer who has documented our culture for over 50 years, even though most people do not realize who shot the images.

I'm actually not an Annie Leibovitz fan but I respect her dedication. This is a very good inside view of her work and working methods. The documentary goes beyond the technical and at times is very personal and revealing.

Love this documentary about Annie Leibovitz. It is filled with celebrity interviews and insider looks at the process of working with these amazing stars. Annie is complicated and a brilliant artist. Great film, great photos, great music.

the road to success is rarely easy. for a serious photographer, this is classic viewing of a contempory photo artist.

She does very good work but listening to her is trying. The images and watching her work makes this worth it.

This engagingly produced documentary concentrates on the various phases of photographer Annie Leibowitz's career, from her beginnings in the San Francisco protest movement in the late 1960s, to her long association with ROLLING STONE magazine, her subsequent move to VANITY FAIR and her work with VOGUE. We see her at work on photo-shoots in Paris and the United States, with subjects including actress Kirsten Dunst in MARIE ANTOINETTE. The program - originally produced on HBO - has a strong cast of celebrity interviewees including Whoopi Goldberg, Hillary Roddam Clinton, Tina Brown, and Yoko Ono. The overall impression, however, is a mixed one: while Leibowitz is an undoubtedly talented artist, with a unique ability to capture images on film, it seems that she has become more concerned with photographing celebrities, rather than recording life around her. It seems that contemporary cultures are more preoccupied with worlds of surface that obfuscate rather than explore the truth. This is a shame, as Leibowitz's early career, as well as her subsequent work in the Bosnian civil war of the 1990s, reveal her to be a talented historian as well as a war photographer.
