There is a complex algorithm that applies to bio-documentaries about photographers, so it’s a treat to feast on these iconic images and here the stories behind them, although Rock is so laconic and hippy-dippy about his craftsmanship it ends up doing something of a disservice to his artistry and undermines the case for why we should watch a movie about him, especially since the later work is less starry and less engaging.
A more interesting personal element is injected through coverage of the heart attacks and medical trouble he experienced later in life, due to a surfeit of illegal drugs.
