A Cruel Twist of Fate

Author: tenafterdave from United States
8 November 2008

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Having thoroughly enjoyed the first volume of Gil Rosselini's video journal, which he whimsically titled "Kill Gil, Volume One," I was delighted to see Volume Two show up on cable TV last week. With the same light-hearted, pragmatic resolve with which he faced a horrendous infection from Staphylococcus aureus in Volume One, Gil is forced back to into hospitals in Switzerland to undergo more surgeries, more rehab, and more endless hours of pain, paralysis, and tedium. In spite of being seriously ill, Gil presents us with music, laughter, wry observations on his condition, and a deep appreciation for the many people who try to help him cope with his incredible maladies. By the end of Volume Two, Gil seems to be on the mend.

It is with some shock that I read here on IMDb that Gil finally succumbed to his long battle with Staph on October 3. Just as Gil was careful to emphasize his gratitude for all who helped him or visited him, it seems fitting to say thanks in return to Gil Rosselini for sharing his wisdom, his dignity, and his abundant humor.
