Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Asked if movies were a "tragic" industry, Cardiff replies, "I think it's a nonsensical thing, job, to be in, because it's full of hypocrisy, hyperbole, just about everything you can think of." Yet his example demonstrates just how worthy it can be. – Andy Webster, New York Times, May 12, 2011

Fresh: The lack of personal detail can be frustrating. Yet it suits its subject's gentlemanly reserve. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Jun 2, 2011

Fresh: Destined to become a perennial for film buffs everywhere, the explicitly titled Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff pays well deserved tribute to the legendary cinematographer who also became a respected director in his own right. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, May 9, 2011

Fresh: Director Alan Parker nicely describes the tightrope teeter of Cardiff's hothouse imagery: "It's great art, and then it will be kitsch, and then it will be art again." Or is he summing up cinema itself? – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, May 11, 2011
