In Brief: C-Word (2015) DOC NYC 2015
Odd ball film with narration by executive Producer Morgan Freeman comes off as a kind of hyperactive pep rally cum sales film for Dr Servan-Schreiber's work. I'm not going to argue that what the good doctor is saying is wrong, it actually mirrors what I've heard from many other doctors, rather I'm saying the film is trying to do too much and explain everything and make it's point with too much show biz glitz.
I turned off about ten minutes into the film and never turned back on having seen the non-personal details many times before elsewhere. I'm guessing O'Hara's Hollywood connections will get the film a release but I don't know about it's staying power when there are better versions out there.
