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 exposé 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 exposé.
The film's sources maintain impressive composure in relating the repeated obstructions, sophistries, and obfuscations they faced, but their frustration is palpable.
A basically constructed but rivetingly researched examination of the global fight for affordable antiretroviral therapy against Western pharamaceutical companies.
Upsetting, poignant, infuriating... it shows the very worst of humanity - how privileged people in the West simply just didn't give a damn about millions upon millions of people dying in Africa. This is compulsory watching.
And while the narration is a touch on the dry side, Fire in the Blood will certainly fuel anger in your veins.
Tediously conventional and uncinematic doc about a worthwhile story and issue, this pseudo sequel to How to Survive a Plague is less emotionally affecting
"Fire" clearly and succinctly reports on efforts to circumvent drug patents and provide millions of Africans suffering from HIV with antiviral drugs.
By presenting facts without sensationalising the issue, this is a frightening depiction of the shocking disparity between the world's haves and have-nots, and also of the injustice created by unfettered capitalism.
A powerful wake-up call. It will make your blood boil.
