The Beautiful Truth

Noted avalanche expert and sometime filmmaker Steve Kroschel (whose credits as a cameraman include the ridiculous Chris O’Donnell cliff-hanger, Vertical Limit) is back with a documentary about the Gerson therapy—a controversial homeopathic cancer treatment—and the duplicity of the conventional cancer-treatment infrastructure in general. Kroschel’s son Garrett travels throughout the U.S. and Mexico, talking to people close to the subject and uncovering new “truths.” The director’s suggestion that big pharmaceutical companies have no interest in actually curing cancer is credible, but the film itself—especially its pedantic narrator—unfortunately makes Kroschel’s beliefs come off like just so much hippie propaganda.
