This documentary about rock star snapper turned film director Corbijn (Control, The American) shadows him at work and at home, attempting to paint a fuller picture of the man whose striking and iconic images of the likes of U2 and Depeche Mode have influenced countless photographers.
A driven workaholic, he takes the viewer inside his creative process but is careful not to give too much of himself away. Director Klaartje Quirijns portrays her subject as enigmatic a figure as the musicians and movie stars at which he points his own cameras, quietly observing as Corbijn puts George Clooney, Lou Reed and others through their paces.
Star names are full of praise for his methods, but while friends and family offer more intimate assessments of him he ultimately remains at least partially a man of mystery.
