Great Courage, Questionable Doc

Farrah's Story (2009)

** (out of 4)

Documentary is more like a video diary of Farrah Fawcett's as she fights cancer. The documentary starts off in 2006 when Farrah was first diagnosed with the disease and follows her for the next two years as it went into remission only to come back. This is a rather hard film to judge because on one hand you want to stand up and cheer Fawcett for her bravery in deadly with her deadly disease but on the other hand this film just isn't very good. The movie is so depressing and at times hard to watch that you can't really hate it. We see a lot of ugly visuals, which is what cancer is all about. Seeing it happen to someone like Fawcett gives people a reason to watch the film but at the same time I kept asking myself why on Earth would this thing be released. I'm sure Fawcett wants to inspire and help people, which she is certainly doing but I still don't quite understand the need to show her missing her hair, throwing up or going through various, painful operations. Again, God bless her heart and courage but the quality of the film isn't too good. The thing seems thrown together without too much thought of what it's trying to do. Ryan O'Neil plays a big part in the film as does her Charlie's Angels co-stars. O'Neil is incredibly emotional throughout the documentary so this too is hard to watch. I'm really not sure who to recommend this film to because it's just too depressing to enjoy in any way.
