About the Movie
“The Man Who Saw Too Much” is a film about fragility; about a man obsessed with photographing the accident who discovered that the fate of others was his way of connecting to life. What is it about these photographs? When the image of the accident becomes the object of desire? Through the footsteps of Metinides and the work of the contemporary tabloid photographers we discover Mexico City through a narrative of crime scenes and accidents, while we are confronted by our own fascination with death, morbidity, rubbernecking through Metinides’ gaze.
The Man Who Saw Too Much
Looks beyond the life of cult photographer Enrique Metinides, to our own fascination with the fragility of life.. the rubber necker, within us all. A powerful film, beautifully made.
Great film with a powerful score. Hard to look with violent images but even harder to look away because of the engaging narrative that the brilliant director creates.
A great documentary - it gets into the mind of a man who takes images of extraordinary subjects. And while some of the images are disquieting, the movie appeals to the voyeur that lurks in all of us. Was surprised and how much I enjoyed it. And would definitely watch again.
