My father’s name was Jack.
When I hear someone say “You don’t know Jack”, I think of him.
This coming Saturday, HBO will air a film starring Al Pacino titled, “You Don’t Know Jack”. But it’s not about my dad, it’s the story of Dr. Jack Kervorkian and the end-of-life debate.
Last week Anderson Cooper interviewed the real Dr. Death, as he’s famously called by the media. It’s a fascinating interview, and indeed I don’t know this Jack at all. There were also several clips of Pacino in what looks to be an amazing performance.
Cooper, who’s already seen the film, said “No matter what side of the debate you are on, this film is worth watching.”
If I had a TV, this would be at the top of my list.
In the meantime I’m waiting for the DVD.
You don’t need to wait.
It should be available to stream for a couple bucks on Amazon next week.
Thanks for the tip, I’ll give it a try.
