      Ellen Gray Philadelphia Inquirer After spending more than two increasingly dispiriting hours with Pacino's raspy eccentric, I still didn't know a lot more about Kevorkian than I had going in. Aug 10, 2020 Full Review Eric Deggans Tampa Bay Times Even as stars Al Pacino, Susan Sarandon and Brenda Vaccaro dim their wattage with clumsy Michigan accents, bad wigs and dowdy clothes, a compelling story about Kevorkian's advocacy for euthanasia emerges. Aug 10, 2020 Full Review Matthew Gilbert Boston Globe There are many, many haunting scenes in HBO's docudrama You Don't Know Jack. Aug 10, 2020 Full Review Mark A. Perigard Boston Herald By the end of the film, viewers still may not be sure what makes Jack tick. But you'll have a better sense of Al, one of the premier actors of our time. Aug 10, 2020 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) A biography of "Dr. Death" may seem like an odd choice for a TV movie, but this is a very good, thought-provoking film. And Pacino and the rest of the cast are great. Aug 10, 2020 Full Review Tom Gliatto People Magazine A vein of messianic righteousness can be detected below the surface, but mostly this Kevorkian is delightful-which doesn't seem quite right. It's an ingenious performance, though. Aug 10, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Racconto tecnicamente eccellente degli anni che hanno portato alla "notorietà" il cosi detto "Dottor Morte". Ciò che sorprende per la qualità della rappresentazione è soprattutto l'estrema naturalezza ed oggettività con cui il regista riesce a porre il dottore, nelle sue azioni e nelle sue intenzioni senza però porre l'accento su un'ideologia o su una morale altrui. La storia viene raccontata con perizia di dettagli, senza mai anteporre esagerazioni emozionali all'esecuzione tecnica. Meno interessanti gli altri personaggi, nessuno di loro lascia particolarmente il segno ne viene doverosamente elaborato. Ottimo Al Pacino, ottima regia. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Fascinating, informative, and well produced. My home state so it was a lot more familiar to me in many regards... Fieger commercials still air to this day. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review kevin c Al Pacino stars as Dr Jack Kevorkian the controversial doctor who opposed the courts to change the laws surrounding doctor assisted suicide. Fascinating story that depicts the human story of his crusade. Pacino delivers an excellent subdued performance and is surrounded by a great supporting cast including John Goodman, Brenda Vaccaro and Susan Sarandon. Very good film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Pacino's mesmerizing performance depicts a true revolutionary and humanitarian in gripping fashion. Jack Kevorkian's story is one that demanded to be told. Excellent movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Andrew A It's an interesting commentary on just one more instance in which religion stands in the way of progress and comfort for humanity. It drags in some places but it's an interesting story. The second half is better than the first. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/17/20 Full Review Audience Member I've heard some call you Dr. Frankenstein... "I take that asa compliment. Anyone who's read the book knows he was a benevolent doctor. It was society that made the monster." Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
