Just watched "Kodachrome" with Ed Harris who plays a dying world renowned photographer who travels a long way with his estranged son and his nurse. He's an irascible old bastard, and it's really hard to like him. IMNSHO, terrific plot line, good story, well done. There's a scene near the end where Ed Harris talks to some folks about being a photographer.

Tore me up.

Watch it...

Wow. Literally just got done watching it (credits are on as I type this).

Thank you for the fantastic recommendation.

Penny and I just finished watching it. Great film for a photographer. Great film for human relationships. Satisfying on several levels. Two thumbs up. Worth a challenge :-)

Steve McCurry's style I'm sure influenced 31.gif Joey Lawrence

Would be very interesting to see if we could get him to enter this one.

Joey's traveling in Wales for a month, so I'm not sure if he'll be able to enter

Wales has internet :-) Better there than, say, Papua New Guinea...

I think it's a work trip. However, that does mean he has all kinds of gear! And he seems to have plenty of time to instagram :p

Decent movie, but really has nothing to do with photography.

But not available outside the US

I too watched this coincidentally with this thread. Agree that it is a good movie, and wish that it had illustrated more of the male lead's life as a photographer (vs. about failures as a dad, husband, man).

Now for a really great Netflix documentary, definitely check out "Tales by Light". Perhaps already discussed elsewhere on DPC, but this series is wonderful, especially if you are a nature or travel photographer. Documentary yes, but still some good coverage of the personal side of these remarkable photographers. Australian producers I believe.

I've seen this and I too agree was a nice series. A little "boring" like most documentaries but plenty of information in there to really grasp onto.

If you are interested in Photographer movies, the film "We'll take manhatten, The true story about Daid bailey and Supermodel Jean (the Shrimp) Shrimpton excellent viewing ..

The scene in the photo lab that I specifically mentioned in my original post about Ed Harris talking to "fans" where he talks about being a photographer was IMO not only the salient point of the movie but about everything about being a photographer.
