If You Still Didn't Know Jack, You Know Him Well Now
2 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In "Kevorkian", they profile Dr. Jack Kevorkian a.k.a Dr. Death who is known for practicing Doctor assisted suicide. This profile shows his life after parole and his 2008 run for the Congress seat in Michigan. He shows himself as a man of strong opinions and stances. With this he intends to show people the power of the 9th Admendment and it's power to the people's rights. He has always been in my opinion on the good side of the fence and personally stand by his views but I think people will take a new stance and believe what Dr. Kevorkian was intending to do and that was to bring peace to many who were deathly ill and wanted release. Overall, the director, interview persons and Kevorkian himself keep this project a must see for all haters and believers in this man's vision.
