[Perspectives] Angel of mercy

Can we become habituated to the presence of death to the point that we will work actively to end life? Chronic (video), starring Tim Roth and directed by Michel Franco, is an unnerving exploration of this issue. The movie starts with an emaciated young woman propped up in the shower, naked. It’s unclear whether she is dead or not. You briefly wonder if this is going to be a police procedural. In fact, she is being washed by Roth’s character David, a nurse for terminally ill patients.
