The Doctor is that rare specimen--a big studio movie that treats the audience (and its own characters) with intelligence and respect. It cuts close to the bone.
...a relatively solid yet erratically-paced little drama.
An honest, well-acted and very moving drama about a cold, arrogant surgeon (a terrific Hurt) who learns about compassion when he becomes a cancer patient.
Gives a fresh appreciation of the dynamic interplay between mind, body, and soul in the art of healing.
Um filme que deveria ser assistido por todos os profissionais da área de Saúde.
William Hurt gives his usually strong performance as a doctor who learns the errors of his bed manner ways by becoming sick himself. It meanders into over sentimentality at the end however.
Hurt. Nuff said. He's simply brilliant here, perfectly cast and at the top of his game. Which is a good thing, seeing as he's pretty much carrying the whole film on his own. While the film does border on the melodramatic, some moments really stuck with me. Our entire med class watched this together and the immediacy really hit us hard. It's believable. You can see yourself falling into those habits of negligence or over-working yourself. All I can say is that if you're in a health-related field, this is pretty much required viewing. Thanks, Will. :)
Superb film, Hurt is brillaint as the egotistical surgeon and his fall from grace is touching and extremely well done.
Great doctor jokes and theme of karmic retribution, but a little gaggy all throughout. I rather liked William Hurt in this performance though. Funny/ironic how he played a man teaching deaf students to speak in "Children of a Lesser God" and a man who can't speak (temporarily) in this film (both directed by Randa Haines). Teehee.
