war photographer doc
20 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

In 2007, Robert King is home in Tennessee hunting deer as he looks back on his war photographer career. In 1993, he arrives in Sarajevo with $1500 and little experience. He is completely green and getting handouts from the orphans. During the Chechnya conflict, he arrives in 1997 Grozny after the Russians take over and the press has left. His pictures during the rebel counter-offensive go worldwide. It's a life of sex, drugs, and violence. That is until he meets his future wife Olga in Moscow. He is all over the world photographing wars and embedded with the troops in Iraq.

This is an indie doc about a war photographer. It's pretty straight forward. Most of the stuff in Tennessee is relatively boring. Most of the relevant ideas can be covered with narrations while showing more interesting war footage. This is mostly nothing special but it has some compelling bits. It also probably has a half-hour worth of filler footage.
