Movie of the Week: March 4, 2024: A Good Death?

A good death needs three things: it needs equipment, it needs medication and it needs the staff to administer it.” ~ Dr. Luke Evans, Conservative Member of UK Parliament in conversation with former UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock, April 2020

Our Movie of the Week, the 2021 documentary A Good Death?, produced by Ickonic and independent British journalist Jacqui Deevoy, offers chilling insights into the UK National Health Service (NHS) “health care” protocols—and in particular, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guideline NG163—used in NHS facilities from 2020 to 2021. Harrowing accounts from bereaved family members raise serious questions about the sinister topic of involuntary euthanasia and the NHS guidance to use morphine (an opioid) and midazolam (a benzodiazepine) concomitantly.

Discussions are underway regarding the upcoming release of another documentary produced by Deevoy, Playing God. Co-produced by Phil Graham and directed by award-winning brother filmmakers Naeem and Ash Mahmood, this groundbreaking film investigates medical democide in the UK over the last 50 years and gives a voice to the relatives of several victims.
