HOW TO DIE IN OREGON (Peter Richardson, 2011)

Who would pay money to check out a moody, wrenching feature-length doc about Oregon's euthanasia laws? The kind of people for whom euthanasia is a resolutely black-and-white issue.

Richardson is very much content to preach to the converted. Only one of his subjects manages to complicate his thesis when he points out what insurance companies are able to perpetrate with the wrong kind of euthanasia law. But Richardson abandons this interviewee within seconds and spends the rest of the time prying out your tears over some deeply sympathetic people's efforts of to die with dignity.
