4.0 out of 5 stars Grey February 17, 2006
"Assisted Living" is a grey film--a film without definition, without the comfort of a border between black and white. First, it's a fictionalized documentary, and that shading is important to the meaning the film has for us. Watching it, we'd like some resolution, some plot, some gripping and overwhelming message. But there is none of this. The film slides between a mother's passion and and senile boredom, between love's tragedy and a human comedy, between a drugged haze and a clear reality, and between the hard facts of old age care and the casual fiction of a screen play. And throughout it all are the hands--old, gnarled, veined, like dark birds.

"Assisted Living" is a beautiful film. It's not easy to watch, and it isn't meant to be. It casts an ominous shadow which hangs

over the heart long after the film ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very real January 13, 2006
I didn't think I was going to like this movie when I first started watching it. Personally I think they could have taken the drug use out of this movie and it would have been a much better movie. I am a guy who works in a nursing home. I have for almost 20 years now in different capacities. Other then the drug use I was the main character at one point or another. Still am to a degree despite the fact that I don't do much patient care anymore. This movie really brings out the truth of being a resident in a nursing home or assisted living facility. These residents really are our treasured past. But most of the time they are tossed into nursing homes as if they were useless trash. These people should be respected. The residents that are in nursing homes today are who made this country what it is today. It was on their backs that the United States became the great country it is today. This movie reminded me so much of where I work it was scary. The movie was filmed in a real assisted living /Nursing home. One note if you haven't worked in a facility you probably won't appreciate this movie like I did. My wife didn't really care for it for this reason other then feel depressed after seeing it. It takes a special person to work in this environment every day. I guess I am one of those people.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is at best a waste of time May 28, 2013
By Mary
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a video to show as a part of a nursing course. I believe that this video had nothing to offer in terms of insight, interest, or even a way to kill time. Not only did I not use the video but I threw it into the garbage.
