This is such a tremendously great documentary, and one which I feel is the best of 2010. It has it all: an extremely interesting subject matter, a confoundedly enigmatic individual who takes center stage throughout this terrific movie, and it has heart. I have always been fascinated by Jack Kevorkian and never really understood why he did what he did in terms of assisting hundreds of people in this country to commit suicide. This movie explains it so well, and really goes beyond the issue of assisted suicide. It explains Mr. Kevorkian's outlook on life and his refusal to abdicate or waver in his staunch views, no matter what the consequences. This movie is very much a story of David and Goliath, where Mr. Kevorkian is put into the cross hairs of Goliath (big government and the media). But what is obvious by the end of this extremely well done movie is that much like the time-honored Timex watches of the 1960s, Mr. Kevorkian "takes a licking and keeps on ticking." I highly recommend this movie.
