The first fifteen minutes of this documentary is not very encouraging but after that it really kicks in and it is not Kevorkian that you will see but many others who truly understand all aspects of the issue on hand not only from humane but from legal prospective except Kevorkian himself. Despite of how you may feel about Kevorkian or what Kevorkian was trying to accomplish based on his claims, this documentary offers a glimpse at the political and legal system of the United States of America which are the central point of the constitution of the United States of America.

Well done, informative and educational documentary. It is not what you say but how you say it... Was Kevorkian able to say what he really wanted to say, only time will tell. Bravo, bravo, bravo.

See this documentary as a companion to How to Die in Oregon. These two documentaries give an excellent view of a cultural change. Kevorkian, the man was a man of vision and his position seems to be fairly shown here. His strengths were overshadowed by his weaknesses. I didn't feel as if the man was completely explained, but will admit this might have been impossible, given the complexity of the issue. In any case, see both documentaries.

I was unsure about my feelings concerning Kevorkian, but after seeing this I believe that history will judge him a hero.

This also shows how corrupt and cruel both the prison system and judicial systems are.

A very enlightening thought was one Kevorkian expressed: Opposition to what he was doing was basd on fear. Fear of death, fear of loss etc.

He himself, being the son of survivors of the Armenian Holocaust, had been told stories of the atrocities, perhaps from the time of a child. You can see his fascination with death could come from these early experiences. Oftentimes traumatized people tell their children about what happened as a way of coping themselves-and this can be a kind of transferring of the poisonous material which is unprocessed, and too much for the child to handle. Just speculation, but certainly his paintings about the holocaust demonstrate that he too was traumatized.

Then when his mother was dying, suffering greatly, and they wanted the doctor to help her die-he refused. I thought that they might have found someone else who would leave them a bottle of pills etc. Find some way to help.

But regardless, these things shed light on both his desire to stop others from suffering unnecessarily, and his self destructive tendencies. He seemed compassionate and wanted the patient to go on with life, that was what he would prefer, if they would agree to that.

He was not someone who wanted people to die, nor one who enjoyed seeing someone die.

I can understand concerns about how euthenasia could be misused, but I think that eventually it will be available to all, with whatever issues and problems and possibilities for abuse that will bring, and he will be, and already is, viewed as a hero by history.
