Kevorkian

Dr. Jack Kevorkian, whose participation in at least 130 assisted suicides earned him the nickname “Dr. Death,” courted controversy in the 1990’s by arguing for death with dignity and ending the physical and psychological anguish of the terminally ill. After being exonerated of murder charges in five separate trials, Kevorkian was found guilty in 1999 and sentenced to 10-to-25 years in prison for the 1998 death of Thomas Youk - the first patient whose death Kevorkian videotaped. Despite serving eight and a half years in prison, Kevorkian today insists, “I don’t have regrets. In fact, I’m thankful.”

“Kevorkian” offers a “Lion-in-Winter”-style portrayal of a man whose compassion and vision has largely been misunderstood, perhaps, at times, even by he himself. One friend compares him to “an Old-Testament prophet. He’s very disagreeable, hard to take, nobody you want over for a weekend, but somebody who tells us some unpleasant truths.”

No Impact Man

nim


Colin Beavan decides to completely eliminate his personal impact on the environment for the next year.

It means eating vegetarian, buying only local food, and turning off the refrigerator. It also means no elevators, no television, no cars, busses, or airplanes, no toxic cleaning products, no electricity, no material consumption, and no garbage.

No problem – at least for Colin – but he and his family live in Manhattan. So when his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two-year-old daughter are dragged into the fray, the No Impact Project has an unforeseen impact of its own.

Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein's film provides an intriguing inside look into the experiment that became a national fascination and media sensation, while examining the familial strains and strengthened bonds that result from Colin and Michelle’s struggle with their radical lifestyle change.

NO - Not unless there's a car chase scene with that bike replete with explosions YES BUT NOT TONIGHT- I'm getting a tattoo of Grover Cleveland on my navel. YES - To exist without existing, that is a question.
