    3 stars out of 5 -- "A briskly efficient overview....The careful assembly of interviews and anecdotes will be catnip to cinephiles..."
    Box Office

    "Obsessive fans of the exuberant and enchanting British filmmaking team the Archers -- Michael Powell, who largely directed, and Emeric Pressburger, who largely wrote the screenplays -- will not want to miss CAMERAMAN, a documentary about Jack Cardiff, the cinematographer behind some of their most indelible images."
    New York Times

    "[F]illed with gloriously vivid HD clips of his groundbreaking work...as well as rich anecdotes from Cardiff, who died in 2009."
    Los Angeles Times
