समीक्षक के रिव्यू

This is much more about what it feels like as you wait to die or sit by someone’s bedside, waiting with them; a slow, draining process that Island catches with some hauntingly evocative images and sparse use of sound.

Island is unique in one aspect. It is the only film of the recent few that captures the moment of death itself.

  • DrFirestone's rating of the film Island

    An uncomfortable reminder about how fragile and temporary our existence is. The film is a bit uneven and fragmentary - it mostly shows acceptance of death and devastating progress of terminal cancer, while other elements of the struggle end up completely omitted. Nonetheless, some of the scenes and words (especially from Alan) are truly powerful. A subtle and intimate approach to this very sensitive matter.

  • Erik F.'s rating of the film Island

    An unflinching examination of uncomfortable but important subject matter: our corporeal transience, the tragic decaying of terminally ill bodies, and the equalizing finality of death. (If you appreciate this, then you should definitely see Allan King's documentary "Dying at Grace.")

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Island

    'The Mouth Agape': Such is the territory explored in this powerful yet not easy to watch documentary. Rapid or slower, yet no less irrevocable, decay afflicts young and old alike and in the realm of the imminent 'last breath', what soothes the pain is not only palliative care, but also the strong belief in various forms of eternity: reconciliation with past loved ones, remembrance for the current loved ones. Hades...

  • Artyom Yakovlev's rating of the film Island

    "Island" must be among the toughest films I’ve ever seen. It’s not death that is tough; it’s the process of dying. Seeing human body’s slow, gradual demise with pain and suffering is unbearable. The most devastating thing is that we can’t do anything about the fate's decision but succumb to it. As painful to watch as it may be, this film is an important statement that presents dying as an integral part of human life.

  • Daniel Lubitsky's rating of the film Island

    Beautiful and thoughtful piece on death and acceptance. The Camera is used in amazing ways, choosing not to look away form real death or suffering but lingering on it letting the viewer think on the images they are seeing. They cant turn away or seek cuts for comfort, what is shown is uncomfortable. Its long static and ECU or LS shots make it a very thoughtful piece that uses the camera in remarkable ways.

  • Slappy McGee's rating of the film Island

    Sad and a bit morbid, but definitely poignant as well. Documentary that offers no solutions or insight. It simply shows us the end stage of terminal cancer as it follows the final days of several patients as they reside in a hospital on the Isle of Wight. Not sure it did anything for me, but I appreciate the purpose of the filmmakers in bringing humanity to something that most of us simply look away from.

  • Nicole's rating of the film Island

    "Time is a peculiar thing. It's just a way of chopping up a period so that we know where we are and when we are." Tough to watch but words like this stick out, sometimes you wonder if people only think of these things during their last days.

  • Carlos Pineda's rating of the film Island

    Un filme profundamente humano en el abordaje de la muerte. Nicholas Ray fue documentado, en su proceso de deterioro y muerte, por Win Wenders; en Colombia, Luis Ospina hizo algo similar con Lorenzo Jaramillo, un magnífico pintor. Los tres filmes comparten un respeto profundo por el dolor, por la enfermedad, por un sufrimiento que se expresa poco con el llanto y mucho con la aceptación de lo inevitable. Qué gran filme
