3 things about Frederick Wiseman’s NEAR DEATH

Near Death [1989]

1. From the film: 75% of all medical expenses are incurred in the last 21 days of life.
2. At 1’clock in the morning she gets a DNR.
3. “The question is: Are we managing her chance at life, or are we managing her death?”

Monumental. Amazing.
