A must see!
I highly recommend it to everyone who tries to know how this human society is really run.
I was deeply moved and heavily heartbroken with all human distorted contradictions against justice and truth. Are we really living in just complete deceit even in terms of human lives just for the sake of capital gains and selfish greed? How scary and how despicable! I see filthy and stinky human groups versus courageous and soul-uplifting ones in this film.
Lastly, I would like to pay my personal high reverence to Dr. Burzynski for his amazing, earnest devotion to benefit people struggling for their life and personal fight for his principle and justice against those enormous evil, sickening Satans pursuing only for their capital greed with privilege sustained.

I found it offensively stunning to discover both the persecution of this life-saving doctor and the priority of money over saving people's lives that Big Medicine and Big Government pursue. We are fooling ourselves if we think it is much different here in Canada. Maybe the specific processes differ but the end result of dollars over lives I am sure holds true.

This man has accrued huge good karma through his non-violent responses to the bullying from agencies and government departments who did everything they could think of to facilitate stealing his patents on the life saving medicine he discovered and developed. A cure for incurable cancer has amazingly been found, but until big business can profit from it everything is done to block patients from accessing it. So the farce continues of beseeching the public to raise funds to find a cure for cancer.

This is not a boring, staid or poorly created movie. My husband and I were entranced and fixated on the screen. The story is overwhelming.

This movie makes you wonder how many other areas of disease are already solved but it is not profitable to provide the medicine or process to dying and disabled patients.
