The Will of Dean Snider

Jaime Kibben's 2001 video documentary follows the declining health of experimental filmmaker Dean Snider, who's had Parkinson's for 11 years and is no longer able to bike or drive. “I really, really, really, really know it's time,” he says, as he plans suicide by Magnum. Excerpts of his apparently whimsical films heighten the tragedy by suggesting that he truly loved life. Some viewers may be troubled by the camera's unblinking stare at his awkward body and difficult speech, but it's also an unblinking look at fatal illness and a seemingly rational decision. 60 min.
