Using a first-person approach to explore the work of renowned physician Dr. John Sarno, and his radical methods to treating back pain, ALL THE RAGE examines the connection between emotions and health`. Through interviews with Sarno, esteemed patients, and experts, the film offers a profound rethink of how we approach our healthcare.
***Q&A With Directors and Special Guest after every screening Friday, Saturday and Sunday.*** “Larry David, Howard Stern and others sing the praises of Dr. John Sarno’s alternative approach to chronic pain in Michael Galinsky’s new doc.” — The Hollywood Reporter Michael Galinsky, Suki Hawley, and David Beilinson’s film All the Rage begins with a quote from Arthur Conan Doyle: “There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.” It’s a strange springboard for a film in which facts initially appear to be pretty wily, but by the end it reads as perfectly apt. On the surface, All the Rage is a story about chronic pain and a doctor’s quest to help people get rid of it. But it’s really about the stories people tell themselves about themselves, despite the facts that are right in front of their faces. It’s about the devastations of childhood, the rage of the impoverished and disenfranchised and the dismissal of science despite all evidence. — Missoula News I just finished watching All the Rage and wanted to tell you how powerful and moving it is. As an eating disorder therapist who helps people translate their disorder into the language of emotions, I can relate. As a human with back problems, I can personally relate. - Mary Anne Cohen, LCSW, BCD Director, The New York Center for Eating Disorders Through his story and others, Michael Galinsky has masterfully depicted the connection of the body and mind. Profiling the work of NYU physician, John Sarno, MD, the film illustrates that when we address the emotions hidden deep inside, we are able to eradicate many chronic pains which historically have been treated by expensive surgeries that in the end, have offered questionable relief. In this day and age where we have seen an epidemic rise in the use and abuse of opioids, oftentimes leading to heroin addiction, it is more important than ever that people see this film. - Cynthia Baum-Baicker, Ph.D. Board Chair, Thomas Scattergood Foundation for Behavioral Health Past-President APA, Division of Psychoanalysis, Couples and Family Therapy Section
