interessante sobretudo como registo de comunidades nos EUA, mais do que como reflexão e discussão do aborto, melhor dizendo, do que o torna ou não permissível em sociedade, este é o princípio da prática, o aborto como acontece nesta suburbana fora do provincianismo liberal das capitais, as pessoas que trabalham nas clínicas, os activismos, as mulheres pacientes, os fetos mortos, os sermões dos céus e dos infernos
It's been a while since I've seen this and normally that would stop me writing a review - but not this film. I remember so much years on. Kaye's film is an all encompassing masterpiece. Oddly enough, there isn't much to say about the content, one must decide on it for oneself. So, I'll just say the film is well crafted and suggest you watch it if you haven't.
If you're going to dive into this area for a Doc. you'd better give it the time this film does. Everyone, everyone, gets their time, their POV, their slot in front of the camera.They either strengthen their position or weaken it based solely on their own words. So shall it be. Kaye filmed & filmed & filmed and the results are/is one of the purest Docs. I have ever seen. Unflinching to its core.
From a girl who's essentially pro-choice: this certainly made me review some of my concepts about abortion. It is really a documentary, while most documentaries are pamphlets (see M Moore) giving preference to one side of the issue. Precisely because Lake of Fire is so balanced, it is doubly confusing.
Excellent documentary from filmmaker Tony Kaye is most effective when it examines the lives of the people behind the issues, rather than talking head sequences where politics and philosophy are discussed. Well-crafted with excellent black and white cinematography - though at times it does struggle to sustain its exorbitant running time.
