Whose Life is the Anyway (1981)
DJE: This was recommended by Dr. Larry Zaroff. It's a powerful and important film that discusses suicide, euthanasia, quality of life, patient-centered care, patients and physicians. It was a bit before its time and I'd never heard about it. Very un-Hollywood. Richard Dreyfus was masterful. This film takes the issues head on with little sentimentality and no pandering to the public. Great for anyone in the "healing" professions.
