Before this year’s LA Film Festival
even opened, the Documentary Competition
looked particularly strong. With the festival more than half over, the #Documentaries
certainly have not disappointed. Having its World Premiere on Sunday was Eve Marson
’s powerful and thought-provoking Dr. Feelgood.
Chronicling the controversy surrounding the prescription use (and abuse) of opioids, Marson examines controversial figure Dr. William Hurwitz, who was sentenced to 25 years in prison for prescribing these drugs.
