When Greg Marinovich and Joao Silva are reviewing Kevin Carter's film of the vulture and child, the negatives they view through the magnifier are actually halftone images, not normal negatives that one would be examining before publication. (Halftones are the "dotted" images used to print photographs in newspapers and magazines, etc.) See more »
They're right. All those people who say it's our job to just sit and watch people die. They're right.

Photos taken by the real photographers, including portraits of each other, are used as a backdrop during the first section of the credits. The taking of some of these photographs is portrayed in the film itself. See more »
Amazing cinematography, a good movie that should have been great
This was a pretty good movie that should have been great. Somehow though it just missed capturing the real spirit of the combat photographers, so that I was left feeling kind of meh about the whole experience. Its been based on the true story of four photojournalists who put their lives on the line to capture the fall of apartheid in the late 1990's.
I think the true character of the men just got overshadowed here by the horrors they were shooting and some random, thrown in love scenes. Ryan Phillippe's accent left something to be desired too.
The cinematography is amazing though, violent and vibrant and really made me wonder how they got some of the shots they did. Carter's (Taylor Kitsch) photo of the vulture and the starving child ...Wow! That's not something I'm going to forget anytime soon. 07.13
