A snapshot in time-the film chronicles the story behind the 1955 LIFE magazine photo thread by Dennis Stock of then-rising star, James Dean, and gives us an inside look at some of Hollywood's most iconic images and into the life of a gifted, but troubled man.
Dennis's son had not finished his sandwich when they left the park. Where did the bag go? See more »
I don't wanna play their stupid game.
You don't have to. I mean, just let me help you. I got 30 million people reading LIFE Magazine... and we do, we do a great shoot...
Wait a minute, wait a minute! You think you're giving me something that's not alerady comin' my way? I lose myself in my roles! I don't wanna lose myself in all this other stuff. And you are this other stuff.

James Dean does not look like James Dean - more like Leonardo di Caprio in What's eating Gilbert Grape.
Robert Pattinson's acting skills were not up to the task either - the photographer did not come alive in this movie.
I found it very hard to build any empathy for any of the persons on the screen. The only interesting scene is the Ben Kingsley scene.
There is no action - at all. At the same time, the movie takes itself extremely serious - pretentious is what I would say. Melodramatic Jazz instrumentals accompany boring monologues of the James Dean-not-look-alike.
I walked out after an hour, stumbled on this in a sneak - definitely not amusing. Maybe only for die-hard James Dean fans, if you can tolerate the miscast main character. Or if you are a fan of the "iconic" James Dean shots (which I am not - hype is not my thing.)
