Anton Corbijn: Inside Out

3

Documentary portrait of the Dutch photographer and director of Control and The American

From shooting album covers/videos for U2 and Depeche Mode to directing his Joy Division-inspired movie Control, Anton Corbijn has always stayed behind-camera.
 
So it must’ve been rather strange for this quiet, shy Dutch photographer to have the lens turned on him.
 
Director Klaartje Quirijns does a credible job of putting him at ease while capturing his world – from hob-nobbing with Bono, Metallica and George Clooney, on the set of Corbijn’s sophomore film The American, to enjoying intimate family meals with his beloved sister.
 
It’s not groundbreaking, but the impressionistic approach at least strives for more than your standard-issue bio.
