"The documentary MCCULLIN is simply remarkable. One rarely encounters the nature of the human spirit to such an unfettered degree. The images convey the essence of our condition, regardless of subject matter. we can only be inspired by the path of such an individual.these photographs remain unmarked by time. our personal journeys are better informed for McCullin’s sacrifices."

The Observer | Philip French
"In this excellent documentary, the careworn, ruggedly handsome McCullin talks straight to camera with great honesty about covering wars and conflicts... What dominates the film are the black-and-white still images. They engrave themselves on our minds... Don’t miss this fine film."

The Independant | Anthony Quinn
"This searching documentary portrait of the photographer Don McCullin is also, necessarily, a distillation of the most harrowing atrocities witnessed since the second world war... Directors Jacqui and David Morris have done a good, unfussy job with dynamite material."

TIME OUT | Cath Clarke
"MCCULLIN is an incredible, multifaceted documentary, at once a paralysing account of war and humanity and a heart rending portrait of a figure plagued by demons. If a picture can paint a thousand words, then this is a film of encyclopaedic proportions enclosed within 95 spellbinding minutes."
