Educational for open-minded people
17 August 2019 | by bowersoxEESee all my reviews

They did a documentary back in the 90s, which followed 5 different people, each eventually under the care of hospice. The participating families were given video cameras and asked to record their experience. That was beyond difficult to watch. This documentary, however, was very educational and presented in a completely professional and respectable manner. If you have an open-mind, you will likely learn something completely new that you probably never thought about before, which seems perfectly natural when covering the topic of death. But this is what makes this documentary quite positive: I'd have never considered any of these options before, and now I'd be open to at least two of them. The 3rd one had me laughing so hard, I cried! Who knew you could do that?!? I'm definitely adding that one to the will for good measure! I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I know you will learn something if you watch this with an open mind. Yes, of course it's difficult to watch, because it's as real as it could ever be. Credit to the people and families who agreed to show themselves in total honesty and to everyone who created this so the rest of us could learn something. It won't be popular among the masses due to the topic, but those who watch it will be the better for it.
