Overview

W. Eugene Smith: Photography Made Difficult is a unique documentary that reenacts the life of the revolutionary artist. Peter Reigert plays the Midwestern photographer whose images defined the times. Smith began taking pictures when he was a teenager. Though dissatisfied with his early work, he kept developing his talent. By the end of his career, he had worked for many important publications, including Newsweek, Life, and Collier's. Smith was in Okinawa on D-Day. He captured indelible images of the Great Depression, New York City, and the life of a country doctor. Photography Made Difficult stitches together newsreel footage, interviews, and dramatic retelling to weave a story of one of the best-known photographers in the world. ~ Sarah Ing

This is a really great film. It's a little tough to get past the guy from 'Animal House' as Smith, but he does a great job. It shows a lot of interviews with people that knew Smith, and shows a lot of his wonderful work.
