Movie Reviews

Much needed.

"This documentary is very concise, and very straight forward. It does not beat around the bush or preach to the choir. It features interviews with some very credible sources, all of whom have their unique take on such a timely discussion topic. I really enjoyed the way the interviews were woven together. This documentary makes a great point and I'd highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in learning the hard facts about the drug industry and its ethics."
Tells it like it is about Big Pharma

"You cannot imagine what bravery it took for this DVD to be made. One guest is a former detail man and the producer is former detail woman, now called drug reps. In a PBS documentary style, but with rapid movement between 6 guests, this is the story of overselling drugs, mis-educating physicians, and control of even academic medical research. Even if you are a jaded cynic like me, you will find out some new disgusting angle to the prescription drug business.
Here is the place for me to recommend Deadly Medicine by Thomas J. Moore (1995) and any of his other books. And Let Them Eat Prozac by David Healy (2004). And The Trouble with Medical Journals by Richard Smith. And Calculated Risks by Gerd Gigerenzer (2002).

"Anyone who cares about their health should see this DVD and give it to their family and friends. I'm an RN and Clinical Nurse Specialist and am appalled at how much control the drug companies have over us. Wake up America. Know what is REALLY going on when you visit a doctor or when you accept pharmaceutical marketing. The system has really become sickening and is all about money. The FDA is NOT there to protect you. The government is not there to protect you. Educate yourself and live."
