Critic Reviews for Fire In The Blood
This infuriating documentary by Dylan Mohan Gray chronicles the long battle to make generic ARVs available to poor African countries, which big pharma resisted because cheap drugs would undermine their bloated pricing here in the U.S.
Unfortunately, Dylan Mohan Gray's slow and steady exposť never quite manages the propulsive gut punch its incendiary subject demands.
This virtuous stance is not unusual for issue-based documentaries, but a film with such illuminating content deserves a more artful vehicle for its moving message.
Only Gray's reliance on bland visuals and recourse to the conventional talking-heads docu-template dull the power of his imperative exposť.
The film's sources maintain impressive composure in relating the repeated obstructions, sophistries, and obfuscations they faced, but their frustration is palpable.
Audience Reviews for Fire In The Blood
A documentary everyone should be required to read. This shows why medicine and medical decisions should never be based on monetary issues. Pharm companies should be ashamed of themselves as this was not an isolated incident.
