Critic Reviews for Primum Non Nocere -- First Do No Harm
What might have made for a fascinating segment on a television newsmagazine program is here stretched out to a numbing 110 minutes, filled with enough facts and statistics to make one wonder whether a pop quiz will be forthcoming.
The argument is compelling but would have been strengthened by even one interview with a defender of transfusions.
Clearly designed to wake up the whole red-blooded world, Primum Non Nocere plays like an underground video for radical med students.
The film brings together an impressive list of medical specialists from all over the world who layer by layer and sound bite by sound bite set out the case for greater research and testing to reduce what are evident risks in blood transfusions.
