The English Surgeon Tonight on POV (9/8)
For all of you television watchers out there, do the right thing tonight and put your sitcoms, one-hour dramas, and sports on hold in order to take in the television premiere of Geoffrey Smith’s The English Surgeon. Smith’s portrait of Dr. Henry Marsh is inspiring, sobering, humorous, and, in the case of the film’s climactic surgery, downright thrilling. Read my full review, which I posted in conjunction with its recent theatrical release, and be sure to visit the film’s page at the POV website to learn more.
