Critic Reviews for Remote Area Medical
The filmmakers inspire deep admiration for the volunteers, but without reducing the patients to mere victims of our broken welfare system.
This deeply compassionate, quietly furious documentary ... highlights, in dramatic detail, the woeful lack of medical care available to residents of one Appalachian community-and, by extension, to many Americans.
From these subjects, you find out all you need to know in order to appreciate the magnitude of what RAM is doing, and the scope of the crisis affecting the rural poor.
Although the documentary can feel like a volunteer instructional video at times, the faces on those who have fallen through the cracks in the system speak volumes.
"Remote Area Medical" is an incredibly tragic movie. It's also an important one, reminding viewers that America is more than its coasts and cities. There are corners of the country we all too easily forget.
Audience Reviews for Remote Area Medical
While, it was cool that I was able to meet the director of the film and the message that it got across was crucial for American's to see, Remote Area Medical is lacking. It's poorly shot and aesthetically a nightmare. There's not quite enough movement in the plot to make it worth watching again. Just a mediocre documentary.
