My bad for not giving a reminder bump last night, but I just got through with watching it, and it was really well done. Honestly, one of my favorite/better Pacino roles.

I didn't know much in detail about Kevorkian, but the film really shed light on the whole situation.

NT, am I in the minority for thinking Kevorkian wasn't as sick-minded as people brought him up to be?

No, I don't think he's sick minded at all, in fact I think he's an incredibly smart and good person.
And like you said, this movie was done extremely well and Al Pacino was perfect.

I haven't watched it yet, but from what I know from watching a 60 Minutes (or one of that nature) special on him, that what he did was unethical in the conservative sense, but respectable when you consider how the man provided an escape for those whose suffering overpowered their lives.
