Links to the film and reviews

IndieWire “Oscar 2019 Best Documentary shortlist.” 

Review, Rotten Tomatoes - “End Game manages to transcend its genre peers and deliver something truly special and unique.” 

Review, Stream it or Skip it? - “Stream it. It’s heavy stuff, sure, but it’s beautifully made – and we could all use a little reminding of how precious life is...”

Review, Life Matters Media - “Executive producer Shoshana Ungerleider, a hospice and palliative care physician...said she hopes audiences are empowered with information about hospice and palliative medicine so they can make better, more informed decisions when facing death.”

Review, Tricycle Magazine - “...the documentary invites us to participate in the penetrating intimacy of dying as seen from the perspectives of patients, their loved ones, and healthcare practitioners. We meet Kym, Bruce, Pat, Mitra, and Thekla at the ends of their lives... We don’t want these people to die, but they will.” 

This Program is Presented in Partnership
