Really enjoyed this hard-hitting documentary
Eddie Adams says in this movie that he is "not a good guy," but he felt good about his photograph of some Viet Namese people adrift on a boat, trying to find a new home. He says that this photo had a positive impact on the United States making it possible for 200,000 of these people to find a new home in the United States.
And of course his most famous photo is most likely the photo showing a shooting, point blank, of a Viet Cong which may have brought about the end of the Viet Nam War.
Adams has been described as the quintessential war photographer, and this film shows why this is true.
Adams did have a sense of humor when describing his work for Penthouse Magazine. He claims he never touched the scantily clad female models but then says "you'll never know."
