Amazing look at life & (upcoming) death

I started watching this documentary on Netflix not really expecting anything special, but I was very surprised to discover a subject that many of us, elderly, think more and more about. That subject is our dependence on others when things start going downhill. When our mind starts to fail us. I believe that most of us don't want to be a burden, well, at least, that is how I feel. The 90 minutes spent with this Daughter and Father made me think that, perhaps our kids need this time spent with a parent. Trying not to spoil things, the regret that the Daughter feels after missing that time with her mother seems to push her to extremes. That extreme being that she shares her Fathers death over and over yet he is still there, still with her. Anyway, I found this amazing and makes me think that I shall perhaps not be the burden I thought I'd be, as long as that is shared with loved ones. Well worth the watch! Sorry for the rant :)

Dick Johnson is Dead

Dick Johnson is Dead was a good documentry in which one we are watching a family and a daughter preparing its father for his death but in a very fun and enterteining way that had both sweet and sad moments in it and in end i must say that i liked this project.The said story was very nicely written and directed and even if im not a big fan of this kind of movies,i must admit that i really liked this one and what was happening on screen,ending of a movie was also very nicely done and it showed us how actually feels to lose someone that we love and how painful that can be.Dick Johnson is dead was a good documentry

It's good but I know I'm missing something...

It's rare that a movie with so much good stuff in it is also quite frustrating. At the risk of going on too long: the main problem for me was the tone. The darkly comedic fantasy sequences never quite meshed with the far more effective (and more frequent) parts of the film that nakedly deal with the inevitability of death, and the immense struggles of aging. There was one fantasy sequence which was surprising moving in a really surreal way, until it clunkily featured an intentionally jarring gag, and I was pulled right out of feeling something profound. I just... wasn't on this movie's level- I could tell I really liked it, and almost felt like I could love it, but it never sat 100% right with me. The whole premise of killing him in make believe ways never seemed to gel with the genuine emotions of the more down to earth stuff, and it left me a bit confused. There was surely an intent and a purpose, but it's one I can't grasp. I know there's something here I'm missing, and the stuff I got I know I really liked, so I can still say it's a good movie for sure. But it's almost like I'm missing a part of my brain that would enable me to fully "get" this movie, y'know? Almost as confusing for me as I'm Thinking of Ending Things was
