The best thing about this documentary was showing a lot of Annie Liebovitz's iconic photographic images, which was a treat. The parts focusing on her childhood background and family member interviews were interesting but this film did not shed light on her creative genius. Except for seeing her photographs, the film was boring and I wouldn't watch it again.
Ooooh, I do love stepping into the realm of sheer genius. I've loved Annie Liebovitz's work for as long as I can remember. A dream for me would be, to spend a day in the work and the life of genius, and bring my daughter along too; To be photographed by Annie Liebovitz, would be like having Michelangelo paint you. Look my fellow lovers of ART, you will absolutely love this DVD. And yes it's everything you'd imagine and more. YES, buy IT, buy it, buy it!
Shows how one can obtain great success, but miss the boat on happiness and fulfillment.
Her talents were used for glamor and in my humble opinion, Annie went in the wrong direction, leaving her with a sad life. It appears she wanted it all. She had three children through a surrogate mother/father. Had a lesbian lover that died of cancer, made lots and lots of money photographing wild and crazy stuff yet ended up financially in trouble. The financial troubles are not reported in this documentary, but Wikipedia gives that information. She is a driven person with great talent, but her life seems sad to me.
The movie is a wonderful portrayal of the life of one of the great artists in America. I am particularly interested in Leibovitz after seeing "Pilgrimage", a show of her recent, very personal work--mostly still life and landscape, rather than portraits, at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, NM. Fabulous.
This film is a comprehensive look at the life and career of Annie Leibovitz. It details her early day at Rolling Stone through the present. If you are a photo buff, you'll love learning more about her incredible career.
