Time Out says

Parry is best known to Londoners as the director of dubious post-'Human Traffic' disco biscuit shouter 'SW9', but the memory of that youthful indiscretion deserves to be swept away by his latest. In 'Shooting Robert King', Parry follows the eponymous war photographer from a callow youth spent propping up the bar in the Sarajevo Holiday Inn, through some bleak, Pulitzer Prize-winning years in Moscow and Grozny, to a redemptive final act in Baghdad and Tennessee. King is a slippery subject – part self-absorbed fratboy, part tortured artist – but Parry's unerring focus and documentary discipline make him as fascinating as he is infuriating.
