Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis sued him, and Marlon Brando broke his jaw. The story of notorious, reviled paparazzo Ron Galella opens a Pandora's Box of issues from right to privacy, freedom of the press and the ever-growing vortex of celebrity worship.Written by

Ron Galella is a relentless paparazzi catching Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. He is an expert at planning and executing the art of stalkarazzi. He has a new book of pictures out. He took the iconic Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis picture. After catching Jackie and John Jr. in the park from behind the trees, she tells an agent to "Smash his camera!" They detained him and he sues Jackie and the Secret Service. She with Onassis' money counter-sues him.
I could not care less about the talking heads talking back and forth about Galella. The problem with this documentary is that it doesn't really challenge Galella that much. A lot of it is his point of view. Mostly it's just him talking, and talking, and talking. The music is cheerfull. The documentarian Leon Gast doesn't ask him questions on camera. He's no Errol Morris. It doesn't feel like it's digging that deep into his psyche. It's not that deep of a dig in the first place. A great interview has follow up questions. This movie doesn't really push and I don't care about his rabbits.
