Los Angeles Times
Craig McCall's affectionate "Life & Work" doesn't dig deep on the biographical side, and the lack of personal detail can be frustrating. Yet it suits its subject's gentlemanly reserve. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
Informative and insightful for films buffs without sacrificing accessibility to the casual fan, "Cameraman" is essential viewing for anyone interested in film history. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
Fantastical is what we get: Cameraman is filled with Cardiff's achingly beautiful work. Full Review
Lou Lumenick
New York Post
Legendary is an overworked adjective, but surely it applies to Jack Cardiff, the British cinematographer whose awe-inspiring resume includes some of the most beautiful Technicolor films ever shot, among them "The Red Shoes," "Black Narcissus" and "Stairway to Heaven." Full Review
Nathan Rabin
The A.V. Club
Director Craig McCall approaches Cardiff with something approaching awe, though his subject views his accomplishments with the good-natured humility befitting a proper English gentleman. Full Review
