Crazy Sexy Cancer

If there's such a thing as a feel-good movie about cancer, then Kris Carr's video memoir is it. A beguiling former actress with a can-do attitude, Carr is devastated to learn she has a rare, incurable cancer, but she throws herself into augmenting her medical treatment with macrobiotic diets, spirituality, yoga, and networking with other cancer fighters. Her talent for improvisational humor (she compares liquid barium to the stuff found on peep-show floors) gives the film much of its energy, while her compassion for other patients adds gravitas. Carr doesn't talk about happy endings—she's in stage four of the disease, and as she says, there is no stage five—yet her acceptance of her condition frees her to approach life head-on. 89 min.
