“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.

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.

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.

Really important film of our time

May 23, 2017
This film follows a pain sufferer on his journey to wellness through the techniques discovered by Dr. Sarno. Dr. Sarno teaches us the the health industry doesn't understand what he does about the effects that modern life and rage specifically has on a human brain AND what that brain does to our body in response. This revolutionary approach is an important watch.

Here is the answer to your chronic health issues

May 18, 2017
This movie is medicine, literally! I lived with chronic pain for over a decade. Part of my spine fused together due to chronic inflammation. I struggled with depression, anxiety and mood swings that were more unstable than anyone can ever imagine. I used to feel angry, sad, excited , grateful, anxious and depressed all at the same time. Needless to say, when I got deep into understanding the things that Sarno so elegantly wrote in simple words, I began to see that being fully healthy again was possible. This documentary is gold, because it summarizes all you need to know to start your healing journey as well. Thank you for making this film, it will save many lives.

Dealing with the whole person in healthcare need not be radical

May 16, 2017
Over the last couple of decades profit has taken over "healthcare". What Michael Galinsky shows in his film with the work of Dr Sarno is that healthcare is much simpler, more basic by listening to the body.

Phenomenal documentary about a groundbreaking theory of chronic pain!

May 12, 2017
This film is absolutely riveting. It made me laugh, cry, and come out feeling like there is hope even in the midst of overwhelming obstacles to progress in our healthcare system. Few documentaries can be so entertaining and emotional and at the same time educate the audience about something as critical as the pain epidemic in America. As someone who had first hand experience with chronic pain and was cured by reading Dr. Sarno's books, this film rang true in every way. This is a film that everyone should see, because it describes the major health crisis of our time.
