The career of photojournalist Don McCullin is examined in this sobering documentary. Filled with images of war, strife and poverty, McCullin is a beautiful and horrific film that's not for the faint of heart. In one of his more poignant and disturbing photographs, sunlight reflects in pools of blood after a family comes home to a gruesome scene, and it's difficult to turn away from the images. Don McCullin's gripping anecdotes of photographing some of the 1960's most turbulent events keep your eyes nailed to the screen. McCullin played at the Cleveland International Film Festival, and you probably missed it.
