All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

It does what good documentaries should do: it shines a very focused light on a very specific problem, a problem that affects millions of people and their families.

"The Widowmaker" is commendable in that although it is a work of advocacy, it gives an array of opinions.

Feb 26, 2015 | Full Review…

A lucid and important work of advocacy journalism. It illuminates yet another way that mainstream medicine thrives on crisis rather than health.

Feb 26, 2015 | Full Review…

The Widowmaker is important and terrifying, enough that I became nervously aware of my heartbeat throughout.

Feb 24, 2015 | Full Review…

Over six hundred thousand Americans die of heart attacks each year, more than from all forms of cancer combined.

Eye-opening, vital and refreshingly well-balanced. It will change the way you look at heart attacks forever.
