Critic Reviews for A Certain Kind of Death
Um olhar detalhado e curioso sobre uma jornada burocrática e mórbida.
Instantly taking its place in the canon of stirring, seminal documentaries, A Certain Kind of Death is destined to be remembered...
A strange documentary that visits the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.
It's just like 'C.S.I.' only without the stars, without the glamour, without evil geniuses, cat-and-mouse games and chases. In short, without the 'C.'
Audience Reviews for A Certain Kind of Death
Obviously low budget, but with great pacing and some utterly shocking moments and imagery, A Certain Kind Of Death is crude and unbiased in its portrayal of what happens to the deceased who are not claimed by their families, and it leaves the viewer thoughtful and haunted by the shocking and srangely interesting process.
This is an intruiging look at the post-mordem life of the deceased that are left alone and never claimed. A very brave albeit morbid project that makes me wonder the emotions the crew must have felt. The depths the coroner's office goes to in finding kin and putting the body to rest is surprising. It becomes apparent that in one's life after death, the deceased exists only, and forever on, as paperwork. Not for the weak of heart or faint of stomach but this is a documentary for anyone interested in law enforcement, investigation, forensics or the event of death itself. Reminiscent of The Bridge.
This doc shows you what happens when someone dies with no next of kin. We take the journey with them step by step through all the paperwork and clean up. The film follows three men who have died and we get to see inside their homes and learn personal details about the lives they have lived. This is a graphic movie as we are shown dead bodies and more. Not recommended for the faint hearted. The one thing I think most will learn from this film is that the things we have collected in this life are never our own. We are merely temporary custodians of things that in the end mean nothing.
