    I just spent the last hour looking at the web site. Wow, I have to get a copy of that film. It looks very interesting and the reenactments very authenticate.

    Showed the movie at a photography group meeting, and it was well received (amazing how many good photographers were not very knowledgeable about Ed Weston). Loaned movie to photographer/friend; and now, 2 months later, hoping to get it back so can watch it again. The movie does provide some insights into Ed's methods & viewpoint. Well worth watching.

    I showed it at my last Platinum Nude Workshop as part of the entertainment at the "end of the workshop dinner". I'm not sure what the models and photographers enjoyed more, the food, wine, single malts, or the movie. But it made for a very nice evening. Robert

    This is one of the best documentaries I've seen in recent years - very interesting and deeply moving too. If you haven't already bought a copy then you must buy it today!

    As I noted in June, 2007 at the showing in San Francisco, this documentary was very well done. Having known Edward, and with Charis at the event, it was a wonderful evening. I give the film high marks.
