Reel Life - In No Great Hurry: 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter


In No Great Hurry paints a picture of one of the world's greatest photographers and artists, Saul Leiter. This endearing film by Thomas Leach gives us a view of Saul's life -- he still shoots, he still laughs, he still does the things he wants to do.

We wrote about Saul's passing way back in 2013 and now that we've revisited this chapter in his life, we can't help but be in awe of the life he lived. His passions are very much alive in the documentary as people can see how he laughed at himself and his other thoughts and yet he retains this degree of seriousness that age and wisdom bestowed upon him through the years. Saul knew what he wanted to do, who he was, and who he wanted to be with. It's doesn't always have to be a matter of whys.

Fans and strangers to Saul's work should definitely see In No Great Hurry. It's one of those movies that tugs at your heart strings with how honest it is. And now we leave you a quote from the film:

"How much do you have to do to satisfy someone who doesn't care anyway?"

Rest easy, Saul.
