You Don’t Know Jack

This is a very thought-provoking and emotional movie about Dr. Jack Kevorkian. I am not familiar with Dr. Kevorkian, other than the obvious, so I can not comment on the accuracy of the representation, but it is nonetheless a well produced, directed and acted film with extraordinary performances by Al Pacino and John Goodman.

The movie tells the story of Dr. Kevorkian from when he first decides to undertake assisted suicides, as well as his friends, supporters, and protesters. It also does a good job of showing Jack Kevorkian’s sometimes quirky personality and creative talents in poetry, art and music. As would be expected, it is a complicated story.
