Critic Reviews for The Beautiful Truth
It's Michael Moore without the truculence, PBS without the pretension, CNN without the commercial grandstanding.
Comes off mostly like a hybrid of retro-style educational film and late-night infomercial.
The Beautiful Truth is a documentary about contemporary health hazards and alternative treatments.
There may be truth in what Kroschel says, but you won't find it in this pedantic film, which has all the veracity of a late-night TV infomercial.
Audience Reviews for The Beautiful Truth
A MUST WATCH if there ever was one. This film explicitly defines the ignorance and corruption of American society. In the face of a scientific truth, many parties continue to seek their own satisfaction rather than admit that Gerson therapy has cured many "terminal" diseases such as cancer. Ashamed.
What others seem to be missing that is revealed to us, yet again, in this delightful documentary is the amazing message that there is a cure for many diseases that the medical-pharmaceutical industry along with our own government (they're not really our government, they are big businesses government) does not allow us to know. Conspiracy...you betcha! A conspiracy to line their pockets at the expense of children and adults with cancer and other treatable diseases. Documented cases and proof just isn't enough for some people!
Here's the thing, and this is coming from someone who has heard and researched the Gerson Diet in the past: there's some stuff that's missing from this. Primarily, any hard evidence and clinical trials. In the science world, any medical research is essentially useless to humans until it's gone through a series of clinical trials. There were no reverse sides to this belief, thus making it one-sided. Furthermore, the narration and production value was just crappy. The way they present their facts through use of "the boy" and his drawings almost dumbs down what they're trying to achieve. That being said, there's a lot of good information for people out there to here held inside this 91 minute documentary. And anyone interested in learning more about alternative therapies, especially for cancer, should definitely check this one out.
