Al Pacino recently won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of "death doctor" Jack Kevorkian in this HBO film directed by Barry Levinson ("Rain Man").
A patient's right to determine his own fate is debated as Kevorkian stands trial over his apparatus that allows terminally ill people to control their destinies, quite literally. The solid cast also includes Susan Sarandon, John Goodman, Brenda Vaccaro and Danny Huston ... but as can be expected, this is Pacino's show. DVD extra: "making-of" documentary. *** (Not rated: AS, P)
