Critics Pick, New York Times
Rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

OLIVER SACKS: HIS OWN LIFE brings to light the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller… a fearless explorer of unknown mental worlds who helped redefine our understanding of the brain and mind, the diversity of human experience, and our shared humanity.   His 1973 book AWAKENINGS (made into a film in 1990) launched Sacks’ singular gift for looking at what most of us would view as a disability and glimpsing, inside it, a state of grace.

“Illuminates details of what can only be called an extraordinary existence.   Beautifully presents a portrait of his compassion and bravery.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times

“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 scientific navigator of the soul…Sacks’ scientifically wired empathy, his ability to capture the fiber of another’s experience to the point where it became transcendent, was a gift that descended from his own sacred demons.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“Majestic.   A moving portrait of a man taking deep stock of his life with great satisfaction and verve.” – Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
