This is quite a look into the amazing life and art of Gordon Parks, an American Treasure.

Like the works of Parks, this documentary is beautifully filmed and narrated. And by the time the film ends, you wish it would just go on and on. Just the way you feel about the amazing life of Gordon Parks.

This documentary on the life and times of the prolific and uncannily gifted photographer, novelist, filmmaker, musician and painter Gordon Parks is never less than absorbing. The film stretches across two centuries as it traces his life and career from abject poverty in Kansas city, circa 1912 (the year of his birth), to his astonishing and unprecedented rise (in the late 40's, 50's and 60's) as a top photographer for Vogue, Life and other magazines, to his later years as a filmmaker and composer, through 2006 (the year of his death). That Parks was the product of illiterate Black sharecroppers is all the more riveting! Aside from prominent photographs, footage and voice-overs of Parks himself, "Half Past Autumn" features Parks'children and ex-wives, as well as celebrities and lifelong friends like record-mogul Russell Simmons and Gloria Vanderbilt--all of whom provide thoughtful, considerate anecdotes. Though Parks' subject matter widely varied (for a crucial time in his career he quickly garnered coveted assignments to places as far-flung as Paris and Brazil), his biggest claim to fame were his heart-stopping photographs of the Southern civil rights movement in the 1960's for Life magazine. In general, the power of his photos was such that no text needed to explain them. In still after still, you are astonished by his innate ability to capture and convey the very essence and beauty (however savage) of an image--whether that image is of families entrapped in poverty; a high fashion model; a glitzy society doyenne; or a cleaning woman resigned to her fate (his iconic photo "American Gothic," shows a Black maid posed in front of a draping American flag, staring down the camera as she holds an upended mop in one hand and a broom in the other).Read more ›

I probably can't be a detached reviewer on this one. Gordon Parks was an old friend. He and I both loved the Kansas prairie where we each grew up although in different times and conditions. It makes me happy to hear his voice and the cadence that rings in my memory.

I really enjoyed watching this. It was great to hear the stories behind his incredible photographs. It gave me an even a better appreciation for them. It was very well produced as well.

I would highly recommend this dvd. I loved it so much I share it with my friend. she and her husband both talked about buying this dvd for their own collection. It's a great resource. I learned so much and it really made me know this is the right field that I have choose. (photography) I love the places he travel to and the people he met on the way up. this information and his dvd lets you know it wasn't easy then and it's not easy now but at least hard work will finally pay off.

As expected, the photographs were stunning, especially for those of us who like black and whites. The details of his live were inspiring. His created his own life and professional success without the prerequisites that are often assumed - stable upbringing, education, equipment, and experience. Wonderful.
