Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer, 31-year old Kris Carr exits her acting career upon diagnosis to film her journey for the next four years. Cutting edge, sassy and hip, this generation-defining documentary provides a rare passenger seat view into the intimate, anguishing, and sometimes humorous world of living with cancer.

Amazon.com

Until 2003, Kris Carr's life resembled that of many other New York actresses. The attractive blonde acted in commercials, appeared in theatrical revues, and guested on programs like Law & Order. After she was diagnosed with cancer of the vascular system, Carr decided to document the experience (she has also written a book, Crazy Sexy Cancer Survivor). This isn't how most people would react, especially if told that conventional treatments aren't likely to help. With the support of her friends and family, Carr becomes "a full-time healing junkie." For this TLC documentary, she also interviews fellow cancer survivors, like redheaded sisters Erin Zammett Ruddy and Melissa Gonzalez, African-American playwright Oni Faidah Lampley, and pink wigged tour manager Jackie Farry. While Carr acquires a New Age attitude (she digs the word "groovy"), Farry advances a punk-rock approach (her motto is "f--- cancer"). Carr may exhibit greater acceptance of her condition, but Farry's anger seems like the more logical response. Further, Carr's optimism is admirable, but possibly unrealistic for those without her support system or insurance benefits (Plus, she never looks sick and falls in love with her camera man during filming). Nonetheless, her sometimes risqué sense of humor makes for entertaining company during this five-year journey. In Crazy Sexy Cancer, Carr doesn’t presume to offer any cures for untreatable conditions, but provides a model for living well through low-impact exercise and proper eating habits. The plentiful extras include a yoga routine, guided meditation, detox tips, deleted scenes, and extended interviews. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
