“Being Mortal” tackles the subject of palliative care in an hour’s time. Basically, you get a superficial definition and some talking heads. There are some moments that are strong examples for what went down. Ending a life is important and it deserves much longer than what it’s given here. That’s why these documentaries frustrate me at times.
The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is stunning for a PBS documentary. Honestly, the transfer is super clean for standard definition. The Dolby track keeps the stereo mix upfront. Nothing is out of the norm, so make your decisions from there.
