USA | 2021 | dir. Ric Burns | doc

A fascinating window into the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller Oliver Sacks, as he shares intimate details of his battles with drug addiction, homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. Sacks, a man of extremes, is known for his multiple literary contributions, from Awakenings to The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat as well as his numerous articles. He was a fearless explorer of unknown cognitive worlds who helped redefine our understanding of the brain and mind, the diversity of human experience, and our shared humanity.
