I watched this tonight on TLC and was just floored by how simple and effective this documentary was.
For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a documentary about Jonny Kennedy, a man afflicted with epidermylosis bulloma, which is basically a condition in which the person has such fragile skin that it blisters and sloughs away at the slightest touch. Horrible, horrible disease, one of the most painful conditions I can really think of. Jonny developed skin cancer and decided not to have treatment, and he filmed the last months of his life in order to bring light to this condition.
All I can say is that I hope to have the dignity and humour to face death the way he did. Just a beautiful film. You can see some previews and such over at the TLC site for the film.
BTW, I added a spoilers tag just to be safe, I don’t really know if they go on threads like this or not. Sorry if not! And sorry if this sounds jumbled and incomprehensible – I’m fuzzy from Percocets for my oral surgery today.
So, anyone else see it yet? Have any thoughts?
