Pleasant.
30 May 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

My summary above is very serious. When I look at the art of Annie Leibovitz, it looks pleasant but has no great affect on me. Because of that, I am probably NOT the best person to review this film--especially since I tend to have a very high level of disdain for celebrity--and Ms. Leibovitz is famous for her celebrity photos. Therefore, for me, it was not a particularly memorable episode. However, this does not mean it's poorly made or not worth seeing. I know that I am not a typical person and many love her "Vanity Fair" and "Rolling Stone" work. So let's talk about the quality of the documentary itself. Like all the "American Masters" shows, it's very high quality--well constructed and very professionally made. While I didn't care too much about watching her photograph famous folks, I did appreciate that the film was not just some fluff piece. It talked about her relationship with Susan Sontag (though it downplayed the homosexual aspect) and was very touching when she talked about her dying lover--showing a very vulnerable side of the lady. It also showed her with family--again, for me, the best parts of the show. Overall, well done--just not my favorite subject. Worth seeing.
