Oliver Sacks: His Own Life

Friends, family members, colleagues and patients discuss the remarkable life and career of Dr. Oliver Sacks.

“First-rate. Sacks’ insights into his own psychological journey, which includes a poignant late life romance after decades of celibacy, are wonderfully perceptive, but equally invaluable are those of his colleagues — a brilliant assemblage of artists and scientists who love him dearly. ”
– Chuck Wilson, L.A. WEEKLY

“A portrait at once tender and thrilling, a movie that presents us with a man who led an eccentrically defiant, at times reckless existence… a wanderer in the body of a clinician, like Jack Kerouac crossed with Jonas Salk. He was that rare if not unique thing, a scientific navigator of the soul. Penny Marshall’s film AWAKENINGS… caught Sacks’ audacity. What he saw, like a beacon, were the inner lives of his patients. Sacks’s scientifically wired empathy… was a gift that descended from his own sacred demons. The still ebullient Oliver holds court… a melodious one-world-British-Jewish form of verbal play.”
– Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
