Review of last week's film (The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, 3.5 stars)Steven says: I can't speak to the cultural meaning behind the film. It is a satire that only those familiar with Romania will fully comprehend. However, the story line is readily accessible and relatable. It centers on healthcare, or lack thereof, and how you navigate an overtaxed system with only an ambulance nurse to speak out for you. And when alcoholism is the one trait you always exhibit, how do you get said system to take your health complaints seriously? The length of the film and the pettiness that overtakes the concern for human life leaves you almost as exhausted as the ambulance crew; but it also makes you want to be more aware about the future of our own healthcare system.
