You Don't Know Jack Reviews:

If you remember the 90's, Dr. Jack Kevorkian needs no introduction. His name was as much the topics of medical controversy as it was the punchline of countless jokes. His name was as notorious to some as O.J. Simpson or Richard Ramirez, yet also as admirable to others as Bill Clinton or Michael Jordan.In the hands of many another directors, Kevorkian's biopic should have been treated more like a farce based on the doctor's past eccentricities, such as showing up in court wearing a powdered wig. Of course, Kevorkian's unabashed behaviors in front of camera lenses are depicted in this film, but fortunately, the features of his assisted suicides are not ever given any sugar coated treatments."You Don't Know Jack" says the storyline about Dr. Kevorkian we could already know. Taking zone from approximately 1990-1999, the movie takes us from Kevorkian's days of being an unemployed physician to the trial that brought an end to his morally questionable practice for good. The lighting throughout this movie is dark and often times dreary, but never dull thanks foremost to an impressive performance by Al Pacino that may be his greatest since "Scent of a Woman".When watching this film, there was rarely a moment where I thought to myself, "That's Al Pacino testing Dr. Kevorkian". Pacino's signature eyes and husky voice are still ever present, but he disappears into his role so effectively that I found myself saying, "That is Dr. Kevorkian". Not only is that feat so difficult to accomplish for an actor so iconic as Pacino, but it's also difficult to enjoy someone who most of the American public knew so well from being on TV all the time.While it's impressive for Pacino to enjoy the Jack we do know, he plays the Jack many "don't know" with a wry wit that makes an appealing character, even if you don't accept with assisted suicide. A nice stage involved Pacino delving a subtle verbal blow to protesters outside his apartment building. When he tells that the God he believes in, namely Johann Sebastian Bach, isn't imaginary like the God the protesters trust in, you can't support but laugh. I'm Catholic, and I thought it was hilarious.However, this movie's strength comes in its nonjudgmental view on Kevorkian's practices. The film never says you how you could feel, but also clears up the notion that Kevorkian practiced his assisted suicides with reckless abandon. Many of the suicides in the film focus on the patients themselves, and their absolute certainty that they wish their suffering to end. Of course, leaving their loved ones is their hardest decision, something the movie indeed recognizes. Is it still wrong? This film doesn't tell, nor could it.What's interesting, though, is the focus on Pacino's eyes during the stage where he performs his first procedure. They transport back and forth on the screen as the operation continues, and don't test to mask any emotion of any kind. It should mean that Kevorkian doesn't care about his patients, or that he cares enough about them to hold the procedure as precise as possible. The main point: You decide.The same is real for Kevorkian's unabashed hero on camera. It's all here in this film, but director Barry Levinson resists the temptation for Pacino as Kevorkian to wink and nod at the camera. Considering Levinson directed perfect character-centric comedy/dramas like "Good Morning Vietnam" and "Man of the Year", the temptation gotta have been there. Fortunately, he used his knack for dramas like "Rainman" and "Avalon" instead, and the result worked wonders.The helping cast behind Pacino is excellent. Danny Huston is wonderful as Geoffrey Fieger, Kevorkian's successful lawyer, and is equally as nice interacting with Pacino as he is in the courtroom scenes. Brenda Vaccaro, Susan Sarandon, and John Goodman are nice helping members of this movie as colleagues who trust in Kevorkian's mission, but also have the outside vantage mission to know what he's inevitably destined for.Whether you accept with Kevorkian's practices or not, it is impossible not to be compelled by this movie. The storyline draws you in, the characters are well developed in all the right areas, and it doesn't take more than five mins for Pacino to convince you he is Dr. Jack Kevorkian. Do you know Jack by the end of this film? I'm still not sure. But I know an perfect film when I see one, and this deserves 10 stars. See it!


Actors have been known to sit on their laurels. Some would argue that, with Oscar, Emmy, and Tony as greatest friends on the mantelpiece, Al Pacino can do just that. Do we respectfully think that all his truly nice performances are in the past? Godfather, Michael Corleone? Or Scarface, Tony Montana? Happily we can think again. Seeing You Don't Know Jack, we know it's the movie Pacino fanatics have waited for.Opening scenes give us Dr 'Death' Kevorkian. Before he invents his popular assisted suicide machine. I look closely at this point. I have to reassure myself it is indeed Pacino, not a docu-drama cut-in. For Pacino looks more like Kevorkian than Kevorkian does. Face, body language, tone of voice, the works.The first achievement is to captivate with the hero himself. Not the divisive problems he represents. Bypass the hazards of predictable biopics. Or monotonous 'message' movies. This is quality mainstream film-making and at its best. It doesn't seek to change views, and the spiky Mr Kevorkian leaves plenty of room to disagree, isolating himself often from even his own supporters. This is a passionate boy who has tiny time for another people's views in any general sense. "Who cares what another folks think?" he exclaims. "It's what my patient feels." This is not the first time director Barry Levinson has astounded audiences. Slick approaches shaking up agreed thinking. Wag the Dog was to be a wildcard that would embarrass Clinton's government. The Oscar-winner, Rain Man, was criticised for creating a misleading stereotype (Is each autistic person a closet savant? Of course not.) But what Rain Boy did do was raise awareness. Create it OK to talk openly about autism. And – perhaps this is the secret – You Don't Know Jack should have a related result just because it is just as funny, just as entertaining, just as engaging and just as challenging. We so receive many various emotions in quick succession on the screen, until we're primed to consider , "How do I really feel about this?" True folks (including death scenes with Kevorkian's patients) are more gutsier coathooks for feelings than the vague ethical constructs debated in each high school.If films learn anything from TV, it's how to hold audience attention. And You Don't Know Jack is suitably punchy. It dismisses any thought of getting up for coffee. No boring arguments for or vs euthanasia. None of those Clint Eastwood, long and meditative, 'Million Dollar Baby' moments. Susan Sarandon even brings some of her own caustic lines to a movie that often brims over with dark, surreal humour. "Is that Santa Claus stepping on a baby?" she asks casually at an exhibition of Kevorkian's bizarre paintings.There are strong performance in abundance, not least from the underrated Danny Huston who plays Fieger, Kevorkian's larger-than-life attorney. (Immediately after the film first aired, the true Geoffrey Fieger announced he will 'maybe stand again' for governor.) Fieger is a colourful, over-the-top hero in true life, perfectly suited to Huston's strengths. After watching Danny Huston's talent wasted in lesser films, such as the well-intentioned Boogie Woogie, it is a joy to see him shine.Bare-knuckle scenes in You Don't Know Jack are explicit. Both in the physical acts of assisted suicide and in their emotional intensity. Kevorkian recalls his own mother's death to Janet Nice (Sarandon). "She said me, 'Imagine the worst toothache in the globe – actually imagine that toothache in each bone in your body." He is almost penniless (for he never charged) and, with scientific precision, he at one mission tries to save on lethal gas. He territories his emphysema patient in a plastic hood (to catch the gas, rather than using a face-mask). But the patient panics and it is nearly the last straw for mate and assistant Neal Nicol, played effortlessly by John Goodman. Such scenes are not for the squeamish.The sense of sincerity and conviction which Pacino gives the role should create it rather uncomfortable viewing if you disagree outright. But this intense, yet sidelong glance at a deeply polarising topic, seriously tackled but deftly relieved with a sharp witty screenplay, might just give fresh life to a debate that suffers from political hubris set vs rather static public opinion.You Don't Know Jack reveals a person a long method from famous conceptions. Even if you read his autobiography and see him in interview, as I have, he was and still is, a difficult person to fathom. An egocentric – or to test a word he recommended himself – a zealot – it often seems that Kevorkian believes in himself to the mission of being inaccessible. "You're gonna need some business cards you know!" chides his sister. For this driven boy who is satisfied to live on a pittance and then go on hunger strike, the importance of such features can, it seems, easy be missed.At over two hours long, the film occasionally verges on repetition. Levinson, back on form after few also-rans, maintains the pace with clever humour and inventive cinematography. "You understand what prison is?" Judge Jessica Copper asks Kevorkian, who seems oblivious of the potential consequences of his actions. "Did you see The Shawshank Redemption, Sir?" During the hunger strike, a quick montage of slamming doors and uneaten foodtrays makes an impression on our ears and eyes faster than any amount of words – and also provides a welcome change of tempo.This is cinema of the unexpected. With topics matter that could have been unbankably inauspicious. Yet You Don't Know Jack triumphs to take your breath away. Even without a plastic hood.


"You don't know jack" is one of the best film of 2010. It Shows the life of Jack Kevorkian. If you remember the 90s than you could have a picture of Dr Jack Kevorkian in your mind. He was just as popular as any film star. He was the everyday topics of medical discussion, The Film Shows what truly was the intention of Dr Jack Kevorkian and how he released countless folks from their misery. Barry Levinson directed the film amazingly, and as for the performance Each one performed excellent. But Al Pacino Truly stole the show, he proved why he is considered the best of all time by many. He lost over 20 pounds for this film and developed a physique so various than what he originally posses. Its nice that he was able to pull of such a physically demanding task at the age of 70. AL out did himself with every and each scene. John Goodman, Brenda Vaccaro, Danny Huston, Susan Sarandon, Cotter smith and Logan all did outstanding job in this Epic movie. You don't know jack has all the elements to hold a film fanatic at the edge of their seats. If you haven't had the occasion to see this nice film than i strongly recommend you see this film and you will realize why its such a phenomenon.
