A very emotional and good but slow moving true story about photographers in South Africa. Very good, but slow. I say B-
"Everybody, at the end of the day wants to come back with the best shot." A true story about four combat photographers (even filmed in the actual area) documenting the end of apartheid in South Africa. This movie shows us a side of war we rarely ever see, the side of the photographer shooting a camera instead of a gun. This is a very good movie that deserves to be watched, but it is very slow moving through out most of the movie. This movie seemed to be constantly evolving, much like the characters. Taking the pictures starts as a way to make money, win awards and become famous. Next, it becomes a movie in which the photographers defend their work, and finally it becomes much more then just taking pictures. Their work becomes a way to educate the rest of the world about what is happening in that part of the world. Overall, a very good but slow moving movie. I recommend it, but you must be in the mood to watch it. I give it a B-.

Would I watch again? - I don't think I would.
