Review: Director Theo Anthony's "All Light, Everywhere"
An image is "captured." A flash "fires." A camera "shoots." Weaponry is baked into the language of filmmaking, as Theo Anthony's illuminating documentary "All Light, Everywhere," details. An exploratory essay about surveillance, policing and the nature of video technology, the film probably...
