Critic Reviews for Oliver Sacks: His Own Life

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (7)

  • While the movie steers around the details of how post-fame Sacks became something of a brand, it beautifully presents a portrait of his compassion and bravery.

  • It is a master class in how to die but also a master class in how to live -- as he says, how to live with what can't be changed and frame it as a story to give it meaning.
