HARRY BENSON: SHOOT FIRST REVIEWED

“Harry Benson: Shoot First” is another documentary that turns into fan worship by the end of the 10 minute marker. While we get the broadest sense of what the man accomplished, nobody bothers to ask about why he didn’t take a specific focus. Hell, most of the pop culture stuff feels trivial by the time we see his Humanitarian coverage. But, I guess that’s not the point. We’re supposed to cheer an old man’s life in filming dudes in locker rooms and the occasional Beatle.

I sat on this one for awhile, because I really wanted to find something to like about it. That never happened, so here we are. It’s not bad, but I can’t say that I was crazy over it. Give it a chance, if you’re curious.

The Plot Thus Far

What we know today about many famous musicians, politicians, and actresses is due to the famous work of photographer Harry Benson. He captured vibrant and intimate photos of the most famous band in history;The Beatles. His extensive portfolio grew to include iconic photos of Muhammad Ali, Michael Jackson, and Dr. Martin Luther King. His wide-ranging work has appeared in publications including Life, Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. Benson, now 86, is still taking photos and has no intentions of stopping.
