Movie Info

America has the most technologically advanced health care system in the world, yet medical interventions have become the third leading cause of death, and the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial. In THE BLEEDING EDGE, Academy Award (R) nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (THE INVISIBLE WAR, THE HUNTING GROUND) turn their sights on the $400 billion medical device industry, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit driven incentives that put patients at risk daily. Weaving emotionally powerful stories of people whose lives have been irrevocably harmed, the film asks: what life-saving technologies may actually be killing us?

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (9)

It is hard to watch, but it's a must-see. My one complaint is that maybe it tries to get its arms around too much.

"The Bleeding Edge" needs to be seen, so that it can change hearts and minds.

July 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Plays like an all-too-real horror show that is ongoing for thousands of unwitting patients with meager relief in sight.

July 27, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Combined with the forces of anti-regulation in government and profit-driven companies who know how to market to doctors and cover up their mistakes, the movie lays bare a blueprint for countless suffering.

July 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Dick's focus remains, as ever, on the things that make us squirm.

July 26, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Finding an enthralling equilibrium between hard numerical data and heartrending testimonials, Dick masterfully weaves together both the expert statements you'd expect in a documentary like this and first-hand accounts from victims.
