Editorial Reviews

HBO Documentary Films unique look at the mystery of traumatic brain injury, which has captivated Americas imagination for decades, COMA follows the personal journeys of four traumatic brain injury patients over the year following their emergence from a coma into either a persistent vegetative state, a minimally conscious state, or beyond. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Liz Garbus, COMA goes inside The Center for Head Injuries at JFK Medical Center, a top U.S. medical facility for the treatment of head trauma. The film charts the patients progress and details the efforts made on their behalf by doctors, therapists and, most poignantly, families and friends. In addition to the feature documentary, the DVD includes an additional feature on a fifth patient, Willie Hicks, whose recovery from a brain injury is more pronounced than those of the four subjects seen in COMA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mother of TBI June 29, 2008
Verified Purchase
As the mother of a TBI victim who received his injury from result of an assault, I saw this docudrama on HBO and found myself watching what we went through last year (2007). Fortunately my son has gone "beyond" but he still struggles daily with recuperating from his injury. I made the purchase of the movie so we can watch it and see how far we have come. Right now it is loaned out to one of his therapist's who had never worked with a TBI patient until he met my son.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coma August 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
This video was an excellent video to use for my students to understand the challenges of facing life with a loved one in a coma and afterwards. The patient cases really draw students into the situations faced by patients, family, and friends.
