When Ben Byer is diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, he grabs a friend and a camcorder to document the process of understanding, treating, and ultimately accepting his disease. There is something inarguably powerful about seeing a man confront his mortality head-on, but Byer’s slow decline is excruciating to watch, and I can’t in good conscience recommend to just anyone. If you think you’re emotionally equipped for watching someone slowly die, though, it’s a beautifully shot and wrenching film.
