Dennis Schwartz
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

An experimental faux documentary on the unpleasant subject matter of suicide.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

A Necessary Death, despite its provocations, remains timid and dramatized, ultimately favoring plot machinations to considering the issue of suicide more deeply.

FEARnet

A thoroughly engrossing little film that's also quite slyly entertaining, despite its rather unsavory subject matter.

A Necessary Death takes a hot button issue - suicide - and expands it to reveal the fuzzy line between art and morality.

As much as it doesn't seem like you're watching an intricate plot unfold, there's actually so much going on -- all of it layered; structured brilliantly.

These are daring, challenging themes for a young filmmaker and Stamm proves to be adept at playing with ideas that scare away writer/directors with twice as much experience.

'A Necessary Death' treats the topic of sucide in a disturbing yet creative way. This is a shocking, emotionally powerful film.

Stamm is able to diminish our misgivings over its authenticity by mastering the "documentary of a documentary" style and satisfying the gravity of the drama through situations that have more truth to them than a lot of staged situations in non-fiction.

A Necessary Death presents a wholly original, fascinating and curiously terrifying documentary that's likely to either captivate or revolt audiences.

a gripping tale that raises troubling questions about the nature of art and our voyeuristic society.

A Necessary Death will make you squirm and think in equal measure. For my money, that makes it a picture worth paying attention to.
