I agree with the point being made, that a terminally ill person should be able to make practical end-of-life decisions. That being said, I wasn't a fan of this documentary. I found it to be repetitive, and the tone both self-pitying and gratingly self-important.

A really interesting documentary about the reasons why someone does not want to fight a terminal illness. Some people will have great difficulty in understanding this perspective, and others may feel admiration or a desire to also control their own destiny should they face similar circumstances.

This poignant, thought provoking documentary will stimulate a lot of discussion about the rights of terminally ill patients. Life is about quality time, not quantity.
