What has “Dr. Death” been up to lately? Find out Monday night as HBO premieres the next film in their documentary films summer series, titled Kevorkian.
Dr. Jack Kevorkian is most known for being the doctor involved in at least 130 assisted suicides. The controversy surrounding his practice was huge in the ‘90’s and resulted in a prison sentence for the doctor. He was released in 2007 and has since run for congress. Kevorkian follows the doctor’s life post-incarceration and will give viewers a look at his mindset since serving time for acts that some would argue are merciful, while others would brand as murder.
Below is some information on the film, which airs Monday night at 9 PM on HBO and further down is a trailer.
The documentary reviews Kevorkian’s controversial, colorful career, closely following his life after his 2007 parole through a failed run for a Congressional seat in Michigan’s 9th District. The documentary reveals “Dr. Death” to be a unique renaissance man: a provocative painter, composer, quirky inventor, bad moviemaker (even he dismisses his film adaptation of Handel’s “Messiah” as “a mistake”) and even worse golfer.
Kevorkian premieres on Monday, June 28, 2010 at 9PM/8C on HBO.
