This movie is great. It not only opens up your eyes to the atrocities of war and really informs you on what some people are really capable of but it is also heartwarming and a sort of coming-of-age tale. You are able to see Robert mature and grow and learn how to love while still witnessing the awful things that go on in other places of world. I recommend this film to anyone, as it is a film that NEEDS to be seen,

"Completely blown away by it. It's beautifully put together, and by far the best war doc I have seen ... It's beautifully constructed with the reveal of his wife and son at the end, and his development as a character works so well. I dread to think of the work and time that went into it but it is a brilliant film..."
Nick Broomfield, Film-maker.

"Stylishly filmed, laced through with humor, some horror, and the ever-present whiff of despair, Shooting Robert King makes for compulsive viewing. The life of Robert King is, in the end, an Everyman's life, lived out against some of the largest and most incomprehensible sadnesses of our time, and that, somehow, is also deeply entertaining."
Jon Lee Anderson, New Yorker Magazine writer, Author.

"Darkly comic, as if "Scoop" was reimagined for the 21st century as a gonzo acid trip through some of the most hellish wars in memory, Shooting Robert King is also a moving story of love and redemption... I've never seen a better film about journalism and war."
Peter Bergen, Chief CNN Terrorist Analyst, Author.

What a brave and talented man my son is. This was shot over 15 years. The DVD contains deleted scenes from the original documentary. This was featured in the 2009 SXSW Conference. The sound is clear and full.

Robert King is such a likeable guy. It is really interesting to watch him learn and grow and see how he reacts to such crazy experiences. This film is truly inspirational to photographers, journalists and anyone who ever had a dream that seemed impossible.
